The way people engage on your site is a measure of the quality of content you have on your site and traffic you attract. People will naturally respond to contents they find useful and resourceful, comment on ones they enjoyed and even go as far as sharing such contents on the social networks. A site with good engagement can lower bounce rate and thus improve such site’s search engine ranking.
A lot of people have written on tips to improve your site but I want to take another route because often times we forget to implement such tips and even when we do we do not exactly see how things changed. But my approach to improving your site will surely work because if you look at my site you will see that the engagement is encouraging and a new visitor won’t feel like he just arrived at a desert land.
So today I am going to share quite a good number of sites you should join to improve your blog. Some of these sites will improve commenting on your site; improve your blog subscription, while some others will improve social media shares etc. I recommend you join as much sites as you find useful, engage actively on them and in no time you will improve your site.
If you are looking to improve the visibility of your site or commenting on your blog, then you must join Kingged. Kingged is a social networking/bookmarking site where users can share their contents, discover contents of interest, comment on them and vote for them to gain more popularity and thus visibility.
Engage actively on Kingged, vote/share others posts and leave worthy comments on such posts, gain popularity and then share your best contents to be discovered by others and be sure they will also vote for your own posts and comment on them as well. You really need to join this site if you want to improve your blog.
