Your LiveJournal: how to make it known?
If you have a blog in LiveJournal or you would like to open and maintain it, then a natural necessity for you as an author is the need for people to see your work. If you keep a diary “for yourself” or for a select circle of friends, then this article is unlikely to benefit you … And if you are the author and want to find your audience, then please read on. LiveJournal is a social network in which natural ways are known to make the user’s diary famous. What needs to be done so that people find you? 1. Carefully select tags for messages in the diary and in the section of the “interests” profile, so that you can find people interested in the relevant tags, the topic. Direct.yandex.ru and the link “Word selection” can help you with this. Write out for yourself all the words that match your subject and check them on Yandex.Direct. After that, the list of these words can significantly expand. Plus: on Yandex. Directly you will learn what words people type when they search for something, and apply them in tags. Users F F will find you by interests and keywords, especially when your blog is indexed by search engines. 2. Write a few posts in the diary. Start and keep a diary. This needs to be done before you start your main diary promotion activities, because the LJ user who enters your diary will have an opinion on whether he will read the diary all the time, what this diary is about, how the owner is doing it, in general, a person, having seen the “face” of the diary, will make an opinion about him and about his owner. On the basis of this opinion, he will decide whether to add him as a friend or not. Plus: if a person adds you as a friend, then the messages from your diary will be broadcast in his “friends feed”, they will be seen by people and if they are interested in your information, they will also add you as a friend. Vicious circle. 3. Look for communities close in subject to your blog, and join them. Messages in your diary will also fall into the tapes of friends of communities. Find as many communities as possible. The more groups in which you are a member, the more reads of each new your blog post will show you statistics. Why did I ask for a start to write in the diary at least a few messages? Serious communities are moderated. In them, you first apply for membership in the community, and then wait for the decision of the community moderator. The moderator makes a decision based on the content of your diary, whether your content is suitable for the “tape of friends” of this community or not. If the direction of the community does not coincide with the direction of your diary, then most likely you will receive a refusal, but if the topic is the same, then it will be easy to get agreement. Most communities do not moderate members while accepting, but can check your posts that you send to the community. Plus: all your blog posts will fall into the tapes of friends of all communities that you have selected and entered into. In this case, the advantage is that you yourself will be able to increase the number of “friend tapes” in which you are present, and you will not have to wait for someone to add you as a friend. 4. Write to the community! Help to fill the communities you are interested in with new information! By doing so, you need to “keep up” with the community and write in the continuation of the community theme. With any sensible message to the community, you will draw even more attention to your diary. Plus: if the message attracts attention and arouses the interest of a particular person, then he will definitely want to know what you are writing in your diary? You can also become a member of non-related communities. If you have something to say in these communities, it will not be worse. Only better. Bottom line: join the community, write more, be active in the life of LiveJournal, and your statistics literally overwhelm the number of readings of your publications! Creative productivity to you and grateful regular readers!
