Syndicate your blog content – why and how

One way to raise your blog’s profile is through syndicating your content to other platforms and sites. It enables you to share your posts with a wider audience, hopefully leading to more direct visits to your own site for whatever purpose you might have, from selling more products to simply growing your blog’s readership.

When it comes to syndicating content, you have the choice of syndicating all of just a snippet of your content. If you’re trying to promote a product or idea, then syndicating an entire article makes sense, as it gives you a strong Call to Action to lure people back to your site having read it. However, if you’re promoting your blog, then providing people with a means of reading the entire article elsewhere could be self-defeating. In this scenario, it’s far better to provide a small preview – either in the form of a headline, or more likely a headline and snippet of the main text to draw people in. If your intro hooks them, they’ll need to click and head over to your site to read the rest.
