Web Sites That Can Promote Your Weblog

A variety of sites on the Web help promote weblogs, and you can use them in a variety of ways to promote your weblog. Here are some of these sites and ways you can make use of them:

  • You can take advantage of sites that support automatic pinging, such as movabletype.org. In this case, your Movable Type site can be set up to ping the receiving site every time a new entry is updated

  • Weblog portals are exactly like commercial portals. They often offer rich features such as search, news, and other items of interest. And, as with a typical portal or search engine, you can add your weblog URL to their database, giving you the ability to reach more and more people.

  • Weblog indexes are similar to standard search engines, but tend to be more streamlined in terms of content, or have a specific topic of interest.

  • Weblog directories organize weblogs by category, placing your weblog in the topic area most relevant both to your site—and to folks seeking more information on that topic.
