When you have completed your article, the next thing you want to do is to Publish your Blog Post. Now, there are many different ways you can go about doing this. So, I’ve decided to share with you, some of the ways in which I publish my posts, in the hope that you may be able to take something from this and add it to your own methods.
10 Ways To Publish Your Blog Post
So, here I have listed below, the 10 methods of publishing that I like to use most when I publish my recent posts. This is just my own personal preference, but I recommend that you add them to your current methods of publishing. You can never publish Too Much, so be sure to carry on with they ways you already publish your posts as well.
1. Publish Your Post
So, before you can even get your post live at all, you will need to press the publish button, which is usually on the Top Right hand side of your screen in your wordpress site backend and usually somewhere clear to be seen on any other site editor.
2. Google Search Console – URL Inspection
If you dont already have a Google Search Console, then you should definitely create one. It’s completely Free to use and will help Google Index your website and posts properly. If you already have an account, then login and run a url inspection for your post.
3. Google Search Console – Sitemap Submission
It’s also a good idea, while you’re on the Google Search console, to do a sitemap submission for your post. You can just click the ‘Submit your Site’ button and enter your url.
4. Bing Webmaster Tools – Submit URL
Just as it is important to get your website optimized for Google, so too is it also important to make sure Bing indexes your website and post properly. So, log into your Bing Webmaster tools account and add your posts URL. If you dont already have a Bing Webmaster Tools account, I recommend that you create one as soon as possible. It’s Free.
5. Pinterest – Create a PIn
Pinterest is a great platform for Images and also a great platform to use for publishing yours. So, I like to add at least an image or two from each of my posts to Pinterest and provide a backlink to my post.
6. Send an email to Your list.
I also send a notice of my recent post and a link to it to all my email subscribers on my mailing list. This is definitely something you should do if you already have a mailing list. If you don’t have a mailing list already, you should start trying to grow one.
You can have this automated using various autoresponder plugins for your WordPress site. Personally, I like to use the aweber Plugin. This is lets you build an email list and create drip campaigns completely Free up to 200 members on your email list. You can get the aWeber Plugin by following this link below;
7. Order Comments
There are many platforms where you can exchange comments with other website owners. Google SEO just loves comments, so this can be beneficial to your site ranking. Personally, as a member of the Wealthy Affiliate Platform, I use the Site Comments section there to get comments for my site.
8. Update Social Media
Social Media is where it’s at today whether we like it or not. So it will benefit your site greatly by sharing your posts into your various Social Media Channels. It is wise to at least have an account with the following main Social Media Channels;
These are the main large social media channels that most people use. But it’s also worth having a look around for smaller social media channels that are more specific to your niche and join them too.
9. Create a Video
Google SEO loves videos, especially YouTube videos, as YouTube is a Google Product. So, its beneficial for your site and post to make a complimentary video for it. You can upload this to YouTube and provide a backlink in the video description to your post.
10. Share To Facebook Groups
As Facebook is the largest of the Social Media channels, then its well worth having a Facebook account, even if you hardly use it. Join as many groups as you can that relate to your niche, and share your posts into each of them. Personally, I like to use the Blog2Social Social Media Plugin for WordPress. It lets me schedule my posts for groups and i can have them shared into them whenever I choose. You can read more about this plugin in my review below;
