Getting started with a website isn’t a tough task anymore; we can now easily create blogs and websites. There are several platforms to create a free website and we can choose any of them. We have also published an article on Creating a Free Website. Now, if we already have a website or blog, we need other websites and platforms where we can successfully promote our website.
The biggest challenge these days is in attracting and getting the audience on board a website. When we need to expand our website or business, we need the audience and without the audience, there is no point in having a website.
Here we have jotted down the five sites that help in growing the audience of a site. For a couple of them, we just need to submit a link whereas the others require a well thought out strategy for the website promotion. The common denominator of these five sites is that they are all free of cost.
Here is the list of The Top 5 Best Websites To Promote A Website For Free –
- Google My Business
Google is the number one search engine in the world. We can safely say that Google is not just a search engine, but also a well-known brand. Google has many products, and one of its best product is Google My Business. We can promote a website through Google My Business. We can submit a link and can also provide additional information about a website or business. Then it adds this information to its data banks and ensures that the link is made available when the users search for content related to a respective site or business.
By using Google My Bussiness, we can also easily create a website for free. We can also add images of our business. Then there is a review option that helps us to connect with the customers directly. Google My Business also provides insights and analysis of the website such as the number of searches for the site, the number of visits to the site, etc. The websites created by it are mobile ready and ads too are available on the platform.
P.S.: Google loves its products, so if we’re posting on Google My Business, we’ll definitely get good results.
- Submit Express
Submit Express claims that it provides a link to the top 70 search engines of the world including Google. Submit Express uses a list of search engines to provide them with links.
We need to follow some rules to submit a link. We need to use the right keyword within the meta tag. To take care of this, Submit Express also provides a free Meta Tag Generator. However, we can submit our URL only once a month, and we can just send the first page of our website. The rest is crawled by the search engines directly. In short, we need to submit the index or home URL of the website, and then Submit Express’s robots click on all the internal links and fetch the required internal URLs and then submit the same to the Search Engines for indexing.
Reddit works on the basis of links submission and the primary focus is on the content. We can submit a link to the main page of the website as well as to the individual pages, products, images, etc. Reddit helps in increasing the traffic to a website by providing the audience with the links. It also helps us to improve the SEO of a website by connecting the links to textual descriptive content.
All we need to do is submit a URL, provide the title and choose a subreddit. We must carefully select a subreddit for the link because the selection of a random subreddit doesn’t help. We need to search for the subreddit that has the maximum subscribers and that the content too is in accordance with the description of the subreddit. We also need to comply with all the rules that are stated in the right-hand side of the platform, else the link is removed. And multiple removals result in the profile being categorized as a spammer.
P.S.: When we start out, we can post links of different websites (on appropriate Sub-Reddits) as this helps to increase the Reddit Karma and once we have accumulated a significant number of Karma we can post for our website, and get amazing results.
Digg allows us to submit a link and promote it with the world for free. Digg delivers great results for the beginners as well as for the experts on the web. It brings forth the most exciting and the most talked about stories on the internet. Digg has millions of users that help to grow a site by increasing the traffic on a site.
We can also add up our story or article. Once we are registered, we need to go to digg.com/submit and submit our link. Then we need to wait for a while and thereafter check our analytics 🙂
Digg is the simplest one in the list, we don’t have to follow some specific steps to submit our links; we just need to submit the URL and that’s it. Everything else is taken care of by them. And yes, this platform works like charm as we too have been lucky to experience it.
We have all heard about Facebook, most of us already have an account here. Facebook has plenty to offer to website owners.
By creating and using a Facebook page, we can promote our sites very quickly. All we need to do is build up our page likes and regularly post a few interesting articles. This results in more and more traffic to our sites daily.
We can create a Facebook Group where we can share all the desired information regarding our site and thus quickly promote our website. Facebook Group allows us to create and nurture our site community, request visitors to submit their queries in the community/group, and then we can respond and engage with them. This way the visitors soon start loving our site.
These are the best destinations in the world wide web where we can easily promote our sites without even spending a single penny. Though free, it requires a bit of work to get started, and then we need to religiously follow the rules and regulations of each site, least our URL and site be banned or blocked.
