Best Blog Promotion Sites
Pin me ๐Ÿ™‚

The next big thing you would be struggling after starting a blog is to get traffic.

I have seen people spamming over different social sites and forums to get traffic but does that work? Hell no. No one likes spammers.

On the flip side, some bloggers are too shy to let others know about their latest post and think of getting traffic automatically.

If you are too shy or afraid to share your articles thinking people will dislike it, then trust me your mom will be the only one reading your blog.

Don’t close your laptop and go to bed once you hit that ‘publish’ button. It’s where the game starts.

There are many ways to promote your latest articles, and I have compiled a list of 39 blog promotion sites where you can promote your blog posts and get significant traffic.

You may a be a part of few of the below sites but I am sure, you are unaware of many.

39 Blog Promotion Sites to Get Free Traffic

So, let’s get started.

Edit: Last updated on 25th May 2018, added Amino to the list and removed Inbound and Klinkk.

1. Email Newsletter

Your email subscribers are the first ones who should get to know about your emails. They have signed up for that, right?

Email Subscribers are the most loyal visitors you can have, and they are most likely to read every new article by you.

If you don’t have an email newsletter then quick, sign up at MailerLite and get started for free. Plus, you get to use automation feature with the free plan.

2. Email Signature

If you’re someone who discusses a lot of business over email, then email signature is a great way to get traffic.

Even a simple email signature which says, โ€œcheck out my latest articleโ€ will work unexpectedly.

You can create beautiful email signatures with the help of this tool.

3. Pingler

Pingler lets you ping your article to search engines for free.

You should also submit your URL to Google Search Console as soon as you hit publish. It helps to index the post quickly.

4. Pinterest

Pinterest Tips - Be Yourself

Pinterest is a fantastic site to share your articles and get targeted traffic to your site. Pinterest is my #1 source of traffic, and I love the community over there.

Anything you share here is called pins, and you save your pins in pinboards.

You can create pinboards for every category of your site and start adding pins to them. The recommended size for a pin is 735 px x 1102 px.

Pinterest users love designs and graphics, so if you can create beautiful pins, then your pins have better chances of being viral.

Join few Pinterest Group Boards to get more repins from fellow bloggers.

I’ll soon share a guide to Pinterest Marketing. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can follow me on Pinterest.

5. Facebook

Facebook is world’s largest social media site, and it has millions of daily users.

Create a Facebook page of your site and start publishing your articles here.

You can also share your post on your timeline to get more traffic.

Facebook Ads are also great to get first followers and user base.

6. Google+

Google+ is a hidden treasure for bloggers. Everyone knows about its potential, but very few use it.

You can join large communities with over thousands of members and share your latest articles with them.

Friends and followers in your circle will see your posts in the search pages which can boost your traffic.

7. Twitter

Twitter is a robust social media site, and it is less spammed than Facebook. You can share 140 characters tweets at a time which tests your creative.

Building a user base is essential if you want to be seen more.

Moreover, if you ever mention or link to any other blogger, then Twitter is the best way to let them know that. They’ll probably retweet it with their thousands of followers.

8. StumbleUpon

You may have probably heard about StumbleUpon. Working of StumbleUpon is on simple, you add your pages to it, and users will stumble them.

Choosing the most relevant category and tags are essential in StumbleUpon.

Some bloggers are getting thousands of visitors from StumbleUpon only. Like this one.

9. Inbound.org

Inbound.org is a community of bloggers and digital marketers. People here are accommodating and always ready to help. You can ask questions or share your latest articles with other bloggers. The key here is to create attention-grabbing titles. Case studies, experiments, and a massive list of contents are more popular at Inbound.org.

This site is no longer working and have been replaced by Growth.org which yet to be launched. I’m replacing it with Amino.

9. Amino

If you spend a lot of time on your mobile, Amino is a perfect place to connect with people and share your articles. Amino is a mobile community which has grown millions of users in short span of time.

Similar to Reddit, they have a community for each and every topic you can imagine. You can join any community and ask questions, share articles, or chat with people.

It is a good place to start as it is not as saturated as other social media channels and you can actually grow big if you use it consistently.

10. Reddit

Reddit is the front page of the internet. It is perhaps the most active community over the Internet, and it has the potential to bring thousands of visitors a day.

Reddit users aka Redditors love the unique stuff and hate spam more than any other community. And they’re good at mocking ๐Ÿ˜‰

There are subreddits for almost every possible subject with strict rules. If you ever break the law, you will be directly banned from the subreddit.

Check out this guide from Startupbros.com about Reddit Marketing. A must read.

11. Instagram

Instagram is the sibling of Facebook and possibly the most active social media app.

You can place only one link (in your bio), but that works like a charm. The key here is to engage with other users and get as many followers as you can.

Building followers are quite easy as the number of active users on Instagram at any given time is enormous. Follow others, post beautiful pictures, and use proper hashtags. You’ll soon see thousands of followers in your account.

Check out my Instagram case study where I grew a brand new account to 1000 followers in 14 days.

12. Snapchat

Similar to Instagram, Snapchat is also a smartphone app that more or less is used for social interaction. Snapchat is relatively new in the industry, but Internet marketers have already started creating their space.

13. LinkedIn

Linkedin is the social media of professionals, and here you’ll find only like-minded peoples to connect. LinkedIn serves as an excellent platform to connect with influencers.

The only thing to remember when promoting on LinkedIn is to stay professional. Contents like crack software, hacking, and streaming sites won’t work here.

Also, try to be as personal as you can to get more likes and comments on your posts. Starting with a story and then sharing the link the bottom will work better.

You can borrow some tips from Ravi Chahar, he’s an expert in LinkedIn marketing.

LinkedIn Promotion Example

14. Klinkk

Klinkk is a blog submission guide where you can submit your latest post. If your article makes it to the front page, then expect good numbers of visitors on your site.

The community has been closed and turned to a blog. I’ll find a better replacement soon and add it here.

15. GrowthHacker

Similar to Inbound.org, GrowthHacker is a community of internet marketers. You can share your latest articles, and the community will like or dislike it in the form of upvote and downvote.

Do not ever spam or self-promote too much. Your account will be disabled without any prior warning.

16. Quora

Quora is world’s leading Q&A site, and people from all over the world ask questions and look for answers here.

You can leave links at the bottom of your replies which motivate users to read more. However, don’t overdo it and always write helpful articles.

If you start spamming, then consider your account banned. Quora also works as a great content curation tool.

17. Yahoo Answers

Another popular Q&A site which has been live before Quora. Follow the same Promotion strategy as that of Quora.

18. Flipboard

Flipboard is another traffic machine that can make your site crash. Working is simple, you create related boards and submit your articles. Other users will see them while flipping around.

Users can add your contents to their boards and vice versa.

Just to let you know, Flipboard isย was my third highest traffic source which has been now taken by Pinterest.

19. Tumblr

Tumblr is another social media cum blog platform to share images and posts. It lets you create your blogs where you can link your website and latest articles.

Although it is not as popular as other social media channels, niches like art and image-focused works pretty well here.

20. Medium

Medium is a blogging platform that is actively used by Internet marketers and professionals to share case studies, personal experiences and more.

You can create an account and submit your stories and link to your articles on it.

Personal and life teaching stories are more likely to go viral on Medium. Don’t keep posting the same articles on both your blog and Medium. It will cause a duplicate content issue, and your followers would be annoyed.

Share once in a week or month when you have something useful to share that you’ll not share on your blog.

21. Triberr

Triberr, as the name suggests is a place where you can create your tribes. Other users can follow your tribe, and you have access to upgrade them as a member or not.

Tribber is focused on small bloggers and businesses, and if you’re a team player, you will get more shares from other bloggers in your niche.

22. Digg

Digg is the homepage of the internet, featuring the best articles, videos, and original content that the web is talking about right now.

If you can manage to get viral here, expect your servers to get crashed.

23. Viral Content Buzz

Viral Content Buzz is a site that can quickly turn your latest blog post to an internet sensation.

Freebie: Take this free โ€œSocial Media & Content Marketing with Viral Content Buzzโ€ course from Udemy to learn more about Viral Content Buzz.

24. Social Buzz Club

Social Buzz Club is an influential social media marketing community. People over here are kind enough to share your contents on social media networks.

25. Ello

Ello is a community of designers and artists. However, you can freely share your latest articles here and expect some folks to reach out to your website and read it.

If you are into fashion, art, or food, then you’ll love people at Ello.

26. Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a professional content curation site that lets you share articles with a right set of individuals.

You can get started with a free account and learn how it works. I have started being active here, and the results are decent so far.

27. Del.icio.us

It lets you save, organize, and remember the links you found on the internet interesting. Not as active as it used to, but still a good place if you can manage to get 10 users a day.

28. AllTop

AllTop is a popular RSS feed site which automatically shares your latest articles. There are various categories in which you can apply and submit to your blog.

Your application may get rejected if you are submitting to a non-relevant category and your articles aren’t up to the mark.

29. Kingged.com

Kingged is a community to find bloggers in your niche and promote your items. Kingged works on โ€˜give and takeโ€™ principle, you leave comments on other blogger posts, and they will return the favor by leaving comments on yours.

30. DoSplash

DoSplash is a community where you can share your latest articles, which are judged by others using upvote and downvote system.

There aren’t many active users as there used to be, but still, if you can manage to be on the homepage, you’ll see good traffic coming on your way.

31. Feedly

A popular RSS and blog reader.

32. SlideShare

Slideshare is a website where you can share presentation files (ppt) of your latest articles.

Slideshare can bring a lot of traffic as it has a massive user base and daily active users.

Converting articles into another form of shareable media is what I refer to blog recycling. Check out my post where I have sharedย nine more ways you can recycle old contents and get new visitors.

33. Flickr

Flickr is an image sharing website with millions of active users.

You can create a new account and share your pictures on Flickr. You are supposed to add links in the description area which are clickable.

34. Sniply

Sniply lets you add a little call-to-action to every link you share on social media. So, if you share an article from another famous blogger’s site, then it will have a little CTA which will entice users to visit your blog.

35. Bloglovin

Bloglovin is a new blogger’s community site which grabs content from your RSS feed and automatically shows it to your followers.

It is a great platform to find related bloggers and read their latest articles at one place. You can also follow blogs in your niches to stay updated with their most recent content.

36. Insighter.io

Insighter works similar to Sniply but offers some better features worth trying out.

For instance, apart from just adding a call-to-action button in shared links, you can add a subscriber popup, capture leads, and engage with the readers all while sharing other’s contents.

It integrates with many of the services including HootSuite, Buffer, and HubSpot.

The free plan allows up to 250 clicks a month, and paid plans start from $19/month for up to 5000 clicks.

37. CommentLuv Enabled Blogs

CommentLuv is a WordPress comment plugin used by many bloggers which enableย your commentators to leave a link back to their latest articles.

Not only you get a backlink (Dofollow or Nofollow), but other readers can also visit your blog using that comment. The key here is to have an exciting title which can attract readers.

38. Email to Mentioned Sources Asking for A Share

It is probably the most effective method which you can use to get a ton of traffic from influencers having large numbers of followers.

Most of the bloggers feel shy to email to the experts feeling that they will think of you as a spammer but trust me it’s not the case. Even they were a noob someday, and they may have tried this method. So, put down your shyness and compose an email to influencers you have mentioned in your latest article.

Below is a simple email template which I found on Kissmetrics. Simple but does the work well.

Email Outreach to Mentioned People

Note that they haven’t asked for a share in the email as it is understood that if that person liked the article, he/she would definitely tweet about it. It also doesn’t make your email look spammy.

Marius from MarkinBlog has shared some excellent tips about Bloggerย outreach. I recommend you have a look at it.

39. Zest.is

This is a new platform I came across recently and with my short experience, got decent traffic with average on-site time.

You can add the Zest.is chrome extension which will replace your new tab with favorite content in your chosen niches. Additionally, you can suggest your own or someone else’s content using the “suggest a link” button.

After approval, your content will go live to thousands of readers.


Promotion is the key to success and blogger’s have already following 80/20 rules. 20% content creation and 80% sharing.

Here are a couple of tips that will help you.

#1 – Don’t try to promote you all article at all these places. That’s not how it works. Also, it will take a lot of your time to understand every site and then build a following. Choose the easiest one (mostly that allows automation) and stick to them.

#2 – Create a plan. Use a spreadsheet or any note taking an app and create a schedule as to when to post on this sites. Don’t do it all at once.

#3 – It is not a final list. Sites are coming up every day, and it’s not possible for me to try and link them all. If you know, any other promotion site which you use then do let me know. I’ll add it to my list. Bookmark this page as I will keep adding more blog promotion sites as I get to know about them.

#4 – If you’re searching for the links, then please don’t. I haven’t link to any of the sites on the list. Either use Google and search for yourself or download the freebie where I have added URL of each site plus helpful case studies and guides

I hope these 39 blog promotion sites will help you promote your latest blog post and get more traffic.

You don’t have to always rely on SEO for the traffic.

Signing Off

Blog promotion is your key to success, and it goes hand in hand with SEO. The only difference is that in SEO, you’ll see the results after time while social media gives quick traffic and conversion.

Also, it helps in getting the words out quickly while you wait for your site to rank higher in SERPs.

Found this article helpful, then share this post on any three social networks and help your followers and friends have access this gem.

  1. I totally agree with you, Shafi. Bloggers need not to depend on SEO solely for blog traffic. I find this list of blog promotion sites very helpful. It’s just that some of them for me are too complicated and too time consuming, but they’re all so useful! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. well, This is a great list of websites to promote blog posts. Authority links really boost blog post in search engines.

    Thank You For sharing this great list with us

  3. So much information in a single article!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    I was searching for this type of article for a long time for my Instagram promotion. At last, found it here. I have already bookmarked the page so that I can find it later times.

    Thanks a lot!
    Rasel

  4. Thanks for the helpful post!!
    I was one of them that “only your mother will be reading your blog”
    LOL

    I guess I’ll take some small steps now

  5. Hi Shafi,
    I checked the Klinkk. It is no longer a community and has been converted to a simple blog (Status on: March 2018). So this option cannot be used to promote blog posts.

  6. Thank you, Shafi, for this comprehensive list for promoting our blog posts. You have introduced me to several new sites, and I am looking forward to giving them a try.

    Regards
    Cheers

  7. Hi,

  8. I didn’t know atleast 1/4 of the things listed above. Thanks for sharing this information with us. I’ve been searching for ways to promote contents and so glad to have found this. Will try them one by one and see what works for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Great collection of sites Khan,

    Traffic is one thing most bloggers always struggle to get, and if one can cool down and share his blog posts on all these sites after publication, It’ll definitely bring back a lot of traffic to his site.

    I’m already with almost all the sites you shared, I’ll check out the rest.

    • Hi Anil,

      Frankly speaking, I can’t believe to have you on my small blog. You’re an inspiration to me and I’ve been following you for years.

      On the side note, thanks for the good words. Keep visiting!

  10. Amazing article keep you the good wok as you have a unique content than others which helped me a lot and i spend an hour on your website daily to know whats amazing here…All the best for your future articles

  11. Hi,
    Shafi khan i just started writing on my new blog, On fitness. If you have time, Then please have look of my blog and suggest me how can i do much better on it.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Neeraj,

      Content is good but can be improved. Use more images and spacing for better readability. Also, consider using another theme which looks easy on eyes.

      I would recommend you buy a custom domain and switch to self-hosted WordPress if you actually want to grow big.

      Good luck man!

  12. Hey Shafi Khan,

    I really liked these 39 Blog promotion technic. I will definitely use these technics for my blog. As I am newbie blogger. This article is definitely useful for me.

    Thanks a lot

  13. Great post! There’s a new social media marketing platform called Phlanx. Been using it and it’s very helpful when you want to connect with influencers and business owners.

  14. Shafi Bro,

    Finest amount of free places to promote blog posts. Interesting to read. As you have mentioned Quora, actually it works a lot for my blog to drive referral traffic. Nowadays I used to spend more time on Quora to read several questions related to the blog niche and answer them. In a footnote, I can add a link to my post which is heavily related to the question.

    • I agree with you about Quora thing. Quora is a good traffic source if you know how to answer questions and make readers click your link for further information. Even I’m using the same strategy.

      Keep visiting Arafath.

  15. Thank you for the informative post. I am an admin for a review blogger promo and engagement group. A lot of the people in there are a little new at this stuff so I am sure they will appreciate it when I post it in our Facebook Friday discussion!

  16. @shafi doing research for sites that provide organic reach and your article explodes with great info. thanks!

    On another note, I am the founder of Insighter.io which is similar to Sniply but with lots of added marketing and conversion features within our badges (can hold downloadable and gated content, full profile view, exit intent, badge rotation, subscribe, multimedia ..) also our analytics are elaborated and actionable (16 parameters of engagements and conversions). I invite you to visit us and hope you may consider mentioning us in your article as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Alex,

      I took a look at Insighter.io and I’m pressed with what it has to offer. I especially loved the options to engage with the readers and show opt-ins. As a gratitude, I have added your tool in the list (replacing Start A Fire, which is no more functional).

      Keep visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Hi, I am a first time blogger and its our first time setting up a site with my friends. We build a site that tackles about different ideas from anime, tech, booze, fun, life and many more..You name it!! We got it all! And so I found this article, its really helpful for starters like me =) Please take a glimpse at our site https://chuwariwapblog.wordpress.com/ we are open for suggestions, thanks ^^ see yah..

    • Hey,

      Your writing is good but I won’t recommend you going this broad with your first blog. Try to narrow down your niche and focus on one category at first.

      Also, go get a custom .com domain name, switch to WordPress.org and host your website. If you’re serious about blogging and want to make it your full-time income source, you should invest a bit.

      Feel free to contact me if you’ve any doubts.

  18. Thank you shafi for the great list. I have not tried all. But I do understand that if you have to stand out then you have to do things differently. I personally like Medium, StumbleUpon and popular social media platforms.

    ~Swapnil

  19. Hi, I really appreciate your writing. What a nice piece of work. Thanks for providing list of website which can help me and many other bloggers

    Thanks

  20. Thanks, Shafi, This is the most comprehensive list I have ever seen on any website. I know most of your list but honestly, I have not tried all due to lack of time. But I do understand that if you have to stand out then you have to do things differently. I personally like Medium, StumbleUpon and popular social media platforms.

    Thanks again. TC & Bye

    • Hi Rupesh,

      Those are well-known sites but many of us just stick to 2-3 platforms while we can use much more.

      You can automate most of the task using various tools available if you’re facing the timing issues. Keep visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Hi Shafi,

    Love this list. Triberr is my fave. I even wrote an entire eBook on how to drive traffic through this platform. Good news update on SAF too; time to disable my browser app with this one. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ryan

    • Hi Ryan,

      Glad to see you here on MyBlogLift. It was a shocking news that SAF has been discontinued, I felt sad removing the chrome extension.

      Keep visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. hi, that was such a good page. I think if someone visits this page so there is no need to visit another page this is going to be very beneficial for the user. good job thanks for sharing

  23. Great list! There’s a lot that I didn’t know before. Definitely be careful with Reddit. I’m new to it and submitted an article to one of the subreddits and was immediately banned, with no warning.

    • Reddit is one of the strictest community on the Internet. You need to post on a related subreddit after reading all the rules. If you violate anyone of them, you’ll be instantly banned without warning.

      Keep visiting and commenting.

  24. Hey, Safi.
    Excellent list. Every option here is really important. We have to use these sites to share our blog posts. I have already joined all of these places and start sharing my posts. Thanks for sharing.

  25. Hey Shafi,

    Indeed a great list for content marketing. Although I am using almost half of these sites, but still I have found some new names like Flipboard, Ello, so big thanks for the information.

    Keep working hard ! All the best for MyBloglift.

    Cheers
    Jenny

  26. Great Article,

    Created a checklist according to that. But you always have to tickle down the list according to your own business.

    Remember Guys, you have to be active and reply on queries ASAP in you profile.

    For me, choose like 5-10 platforms only and do maximum efforts to promote your business there. I am sure you generate a lot of business/traffic with that rather make 100’s of Ids on different platforms and don’t know how to handle all of them

    Regards,

  27. Thanks Shafi,

    I am a new commer to the blogging world and I am blogging about Canadian personal finance. This post is very useful and will surely help me get more traffic. I am getting some traffic now, but I can definitely use a boost from some of these sources.

    -Leo

  28. Hey Shafi,

    Well great list of places where we can share our blog posts.

    Although I haven’t tried majority of these as i do not generally share my posts as i focus on Search Engine, although I love Scoop it as it saves a hell lot of time by helping me share content to Facebook, Twitter and on many more places.

    ~ Katty

  29. I cam across your article on reddit and I was looking for more groups that allow sharing of articles. Not in the spamming kind of way though.

    This is one comprehensive list. Thank you.

    I will definitely add them to my list of promotion platforms.

  30. Hi Shafi,

    I tried signing up on klinkk but the login section didn’t show it. Is it that they don’t accept new members of what? Meanwhile, I have registered on GrowthHackers but haven’t updated my profile due to a challenge I’m experiencing with the site. I know if I can get Yahoo Answers and Quota right, I will hit my goal.

    Thank you for sharing.

    • Hello Emenike,

      There’s a login section in the top navigation menu, and you can connect your Twitter account for easy sign-up. I don’t think they have stopped accepting new members.
      GrowthHacker can be tricky, and they do take new signups seriously.

      Let me know if I can help in any way possible. Have a good day.

  31. A really detailed list – well done!

    Personally speaking, I’m experimenting with both Tumblr and StumbleUpon: the former has begun brining decent results, while I’m still struggling with the latter… time will tell ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Hey Shafi Khan,

    Appreciate your content for blog promotion websites really useful sites to promote our blogs, I was looking for more website where i can promote, I found your article on Inbound.org I thought it would be interesting and it was interesting and helpful, thanks for sharing useful information.

  33. Hey Shafi,

    Thanks for the list of sites. I use half of them and I do have to say that Sniply helped to increase my traffic. I’ve never heard of Pingler but it looks like it would be a great tool.

    One more tool I like it add is StartaFire. It’s similar to sniply and a bit more convenient, but despite that, I still use both tools.

    Thanks for the share Shafi! Have a good one!

  34. Hi,

    This is definitely a helpful list of places where a blogger can share his newly created content for more traffic. I was not aware about Social Buzz Club.So it was a good read to go through your article.

    keep it up, share more!

  35. Great article, and I found you on Flipboard! One question. I understand how to create and follow boards on flipboard ,but how do I post an article or blog post to the platform?

    Thanks-
