    Hey guys,

    Just wondering the best way to promote a blogger blog, my wife wants to create an anti-cellulite blog and I just set her up with a blogger account. She is aware of the keyword research done and all of that stuff and is loading it up with some keywords and it should be pretty interesting (to humans of course!).

    So what's the best way to promote it? I mean the marketing specifically, backlinks and other blog marketing methods. I'm willing to do the shotgun approach but I need some good ways to market it!

    Also, are there any products to promote in this niche like through clickbank or something as well? How would I set that up on a blogger blog?

    Lastly, what's the overall recommendation? My wife wanted to start blogging, I figured I'd put it to work by using adsense, how can I maximize the revenue of the traffic that her niche will bring in?

    You can start by making sure you ping each time you post.
    Make sure to tag each post accordingly
    Submit to directories.
    Comment on top ranking blogs (i link to as many as i can but starting with the top ranking ones obviously) in your niche and link back to your blog
    Write articles that target some long tail keywords within your niche.

    Just my bit. Hopefully you get more from other experienced members.

    Thanks, seems pretty straight forward. I was going to outsource the directory submission and article creation (a member on here makes and submits articles to 5000 different websites).

    As for the top ranking blogs... aren't they mostly nofollow? I haven't had much success finding any great blogs I can post on.

    What ping service do you use? I think blogger automatically pings every post but not sure if it's as effective as it could be.

    Maximizing for adsense? Make it ugly. Long fluff posts stuffed with keywords. Not ugly enough to be called a spam site, not pretty enough to make the people want to stay and read more. Tell the wife you want clickers, not readers. :D

    And maybe remove the navbar on top so some dumbfuck can't flag you for no reason other than him being a dick.

    you senuke (you can find a download in this forum), they have a social networking and ping tool built in. Works pretty well for me.

    Also, definitely submit your posts to digg ... they get indexed in no time.

    also a couple others you can do
    link trading
    youtube videos watermarked
    article list torrents


    just some ideas, hope this helps ;)

    Blog commenting
    Even no follow is only no follow for google.
    So yahoo and msn still count them as good links, and google will index with those links.

    Ping to good services after each post.

    Don't do this on blogger because of the reason that people can easily flag it and if you remove the navbar it can trigger their spam filter and get the site temporary banned until you ask for a review.

    Just pay for a domain or get an account on some other service like wordpress.com.

    Social bookmark, digg, reddit, stumble, propeller, delicious and so on.

    Use the title from the post, and have the title keyword rich.

    Forum post and have your link in the end of the post.

    You should be set.

    best way for me is blog commenting(similar niche), forum posting(placing your link on your keyword as sig) ping everytime you post(already mentioned) blog directory submission.

    Great suggestions, as for the nav bar, it's easy to find a way to remove it, just search on google. I'll try SE nuke, i've used it before but not with much success, i guess it's different with a blog.

    On thing that has been missed here is you need to frequently post to the blog, keep each post between 150 - 350 words long and get your keywords in.

    When I started I posted every day for 4 weeks, now organic traffic is starting to pick up. I have read that you can post upto 5 posts per day but I personally think it gets a bit spammy.
