Boost Your Blog’s Traffic & Profit with Blog Engage

Posted by in Blog Resources | 56 comments

Fluffy Blog Engage Blog SyndicationYou have a blog for your business. Great! Has anyone read it? Does anyone (other than your mom) know it exists?

Maybe you do get traffic, but the comments look like the message at the end of that childhood telephone game – garbled beyond recognition. And all the so-called authors have linked back to some sort of spammy site.

Generating targeted traffic to your website is a crucial component of online success.
But who has the time? Or the budget?
 

Blog Engage is a Cost Effective Way to Drive Real Traffic


I’ve been using the services of Blog Engage for nearly two years now. As The Numbers Whisperer®, I’m sure you can appreciate I regularly revisit my tools and the return on them. I’m busy, and I’m careful with my money – Blog Engage delivers results on a small time investment for a very reasonable cost.

Blog Syndication with BlogEngage.com

What is blog syndication?
According to Wikipedia, blog syndication is when “website material is made available to multiple other sites. Most commonly, web syndication refers to making web feeds available from a site in order to provide other people with a summary or update of the website’s recently added content.”

Think of your favorite popular columnist. Their column appears in your local newspaper, as well as local newspapers around the country. Online syndication does this same thing for your blog posts.

How can you profit from blog syndication?
Content may be king, but if you have no traffic it’s like ruling Nauru. Yes that’s a real country. It has a population of less than 10,000 people.

Syndicating your blog enables you to reach new audiences, and generate new traffic, without costing the earth. In addition, syndicating on reputable websites also creates valuable backlinks. When search engines, such as Google, are analyzing a website’s relevance, backlinks from well regarded websites improves your ranking.

Blog Engage User StatisticsWhy is Blog Engage a great way to syndicate?
It’s simple. Blog Engage is a reputable website, with real participants and a large reach.

Let’s start with reputation. Do you ask your crazy cousin for business advice or your self-made millionaire aunt? Blog Engage has a Google Page Rank of 4. On the date of publishing this post, Blog Engage Alexa Global Traffic Ranking was 10,760. That means of all the billions of websites online, only 10,759 websites were visited more often. (You can check your websites ranking by going to Alexa.com).

Blog Engage does not accept spammy posts, and will yank your feed if it does not meet their quality criteria. In addition, as you can see by the screen shot I posted, people are actively commenting and interacting. With more than 2,700 members and over 15,000 comments you’ve got a vibrant community.

Another benefit is knowing the audience. For my business all the members of the Blog Engage community are potential clients, as they are all in business. I have the ability to reach 2,700 legitimate new customer leads.

If you are B2C, think of all the possibilities in joining forces with others trying to reach that same audience. Posts are segmented by topic, and there are even groups you can join to further that cooperation.

Contests & Giveaways via Blog Engage

Brian Belfitt, the founder of Blog Engage, does a great job of creating and promoting blogging contests that offer some serious cash prizes. As you can see from the screenshot below, Brian sponsored and promoted a guest blogging opportunity in 2012 with a $1,000 cash prize.

Sponsoring
As a Business Plus customer I’m automatically sponsoring things. Brian does it for me.

Yes you read that correctly. Since I’m on the Business Plus plan, Brian sets up and blogs about the contests that I automatically sponsor. At this time it’s worked out to about one per year. Here are the links to see it in action:

You can see why I have the Business Plus plan with Blog Engage.

Featured Spotlight on Blog Engage

While there are less expensive plans than Business Plus, and those are a great way to get your feet wet, I believe that Business Plus gives you the best return on your money. The Featured Spotlight is another reason why it’s my top pick.

As a Business Plus subscriber you get a Featured Spotlight written about you, by Brian Belfitt (the Founder!), posted and promoted right on BlogEngage.

Blog Engage Post SpotlightBrian doesn’t just grab a few sentences from your website, throw them in WordPress and hit post. He gets to know you and describes your business in his own words. You qualify for a spotlight when you become a Business Plus or Direct to Front Page subscriber. Brian also revisits long time clients (like me!) giving them another Featured Spotlight.

Even More Goodies with Blog Engage

The following additional features are worth noting, some start with even the Standard Plan.

Google AdSense
Included with ALL plans
Simply input your Google AdSense publisher ID on your Blog Engage profile, and your ads will run on the syndicated content. It takes all of 60 seconds to do this once, and every post has the potential to generate revenue for you.

Social Media Marketing
Included in Platinum, Business, Business Plus, and Direct to Front Page
Get your content shared by Brian & Blog Engage via Twitter (10K+ Followers), Facebook Page (5K+ Likes), LinkedIn, and Google Plus. Not only does this give you credibility from a social proof perspective, it ensures your content is marketed even when you don’t have time!

Blogs, Podcasts and more!
You may have noticed that the Business Plus plan allows me to syndicate up to 5 separate feeds. Even if you have only one website I can give you quick examples on why you might want at least three feeds.

  1. Your Main Blog
  2. Your Podcast – yes you CAN syndicate this! I have my Finance Rock Star Radio Show syndicated
  3. You Online TV Show or Video Podcast – I have one of these too. Call a Biz Hero

A colleague of mine says she has a Press Release / News feed for her business. That’s in addition to her regular blog and people DO subscribe to it! There are many ways this can be effectively used for your business.

Final Thoughts about Blog Engage

I’ve been a client of Blog Engage for two years, and I expect to be one for many more to come. Brian and his team work hard to deliver a valuable service to legitimate bloggers. I would encourage you to try out his services and see the results for yourself.

  24. Very well review. This post is very useful for newbie like me. You give me a deeper look about Blog Engage. I hope that I can use those tools effectively. Please keep sharing.

  25. Nicole,
    2 things
    1) I was getting great traffic using Linkedin, till they changed the rules. My traffic dropped 70%. Lesson learned, don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
    2) I’m impressed you have Ana Hoffman visiting your site…jealous!

    I checked out Blog Engage and wanted to know a little more.
    1) It’s priced in British Pounds, is there a US site or US quoted prices?
    2) If you pay for a package do all posts still go through the voting process?
    3) How long did it take you to build your traffic to where it is today and where was it when you first signed up? Don’t mean to be nosy, just really trying to be smart with marketing dollars.

    Thanks again!

    Why? I wish I knew it earlier. It is a great platform for bloggers and writers to meet up. Building traffic there is easy as long as you have very good content to share.

    Besides that, I truly love the fact that the community there is wonderful especially with Brian. He’s a great man and always willing to help.

    Double thumbs up to him and the rest there!

  29. I definitely have seen a lot of traffic generation methods and find it very funny that blogging as moved from just a single web page format to write one’s ideas or documents online, but it is now one of the traffic generation system as a seo specialist I do advise my clients to include blog into their website, but most of this site’s have the issue of not being able to sustain it with fresh content, until now I stumble upon this great article of yours.
    Now BE is definitely a lovely way to get fresh contents on your blogs and enhance get traffic as well, it reminds me of another system I know, the site name is freetrafficsystem.com (Now they have redesigned their site) web site, where you drop your blog url and they help you to pull content on it, depending your package you select they help you to filter content from their member areas and post them on your blog so you don’t have to bother always writing on your blog.

  30. I am on Blogengage and my post is syndicated on various media sites as soon as its published. Its a great platform and has helped to boost traffic.

  31. Do you submit everything via Blog Engage, that is, do you automatically send everything you post, or do you pick and choose what goes over there?

  32. I’m just wondering if you think it would have similar benefits for blogs outside the business/marketing type niches?

    A friend of mine is looking at starting a blog in the sports coaching niche and obviously getting traffic early on to any blog is a challenge so I’m just wondering if you think Blog Engage would be useful in that situation

  33. How much do we need to pay for joining Blog Engage?
