Writing a good post takes a lot of time and thought. Even after you've finished writing a blog post, you need to give it time before building your own space among the millions of pages on the Internet. By building your own space, I am indicating your position in the search results and getting traffic from Google and elsewhere. Here is a list of things to do that you need to follow after posting a blog post to make sure that your content gets maximum visibility.
5 most important things you should do after posting a new blog post.
Feed The Search Engine Monkeys
While search engines will eventually enlist your latest blog post even if you do nothing, I suggest you do it to make the process faster. As soon as you are done with the publication and the second test session, the first thing to do is tell the search engines a new piece of content on your website. Now how do you tell search engines about this? In a word: PING! There are 2 ways to do it and we'll take a look at both and decide which one is best for you. Now, after writing a post, if you are using a static sitemap, you will need to rebuild a site map, include the link to the new content and send it back to the search engines. This is the best procedure to follow if the Sitemap is not automatically updated, but if the Sitemap is automatically updated, all you need to do is to PING your new content using a ping service available for free on the Internet. One of these Ping-O-Matic examples that you can easily find through a Google search. Even if you are using the dynamic site map, you can still rebuild the site map at that time and re-send the index.
Whisper in the middle social ear
I don't mean literally just a whisper, but I mean slow and accurate social media promotion. Once the post is published, share the posts in the correct groups and pages. This not only saves you a lot of time and helps you expose your content to the right audience. Another important factor to consider when sharing content on social media sites is when you share. Experiment and discover the best time for your blog. While for many in the evening or during the lunch break during the day, for others it could be the night or early morning. Once you know the moment when most of your online audience shares your content at that specific time. We will increase the exposure for your content and who may make you become viral.

Let your members know
Subscribers are the most loyal audience a blogger can have. The value of subscribers can be understood from the fact that people buy training courses and tricks to capture this kind of audience. What makes these subscribers so special? The FEDELT answer. A subscriber (or follower) loves to listen to what you have to say or share and shares his opinion on the content and shares it further with his friends and family. So this is an important thing that you should do immediately after posting a new post. Send a newsletter and highlight the importance of the topic covered in the content. Make sure you track the conversion rate and experiment with different styles until you know what's working for you and what it can't. But NOT SPAM.
Create social bookmarks
Social bookmarks are an important part of the SEO strategy. Actually not only important from the SEO point of view, but also a primary source of traffic for many websites these days. As soon as you publish a post, access all the major social media accounts and start creating social bookmarks for the post. After finishing the manual submission on sites like Fb, Twitter, Stumble, Reddit and all other similar sites, start your automatic bookmarking software and bots to do it on thousands of other websites. While some of you may not be so comfortable with automatic linking, I do recommend these links for creating second and third level links.
The important interconnection
This is one of the main ingredients of the best blogs that are missing from everyday bloggers – Interlinking. If the content of your website is related, link it together via contextual links. This includes doing 2 things:
- Link to older content on your website in your new blog post or content on keywords and appropriate places.
- Edit the old content and link it to the new content you've just published. Again, the links should only come from appropriate articles and appropriate keywords / places.
Another good practice is to link your home page to appropriate keywords / keywords within the latest published content.
