Article Marketing 101 – How to Drive Traffic to Design Blogs Using 101 Community News Submissions

Posted in Social Media, Tips, Web Design • Posted on 27 Comments

You launched a blog, filled it with jaw dropping tutorials, displayed ads on few corners, opted for an extremely amazing theme and then waited! Now what? Traffic starts pouring in but others are already running away with the goal post. In between the hugger mugger geometry of blogs smoothies are shaken, not stirred! Brains are muddled and thoughts blown away. Without the skyrocketing visitor numbers that blog proves to be a far fetched island which is overflowing with useful information but hidden from the eyes of the beholder. So, what do you do then? How do you look for the niche traffic which your blog is craving for? Well, this article won’t repeat the basics. Rather, we will go through the list of 101 Community News and Article Submission websites for design article marketing. They are worth your time. Trust me!

Obvious Ways to Drive Traffic

The ones that I am going to throw light on are very obvious. So obvious that you have already used most of them. I won’t explain them in detail but I want to jot them down so that some nazis don’t complain about me missing out on most of the ways to drive traffic.

  • Content rich article - Oh! Don’t you already know this? With an article that lacks content that readers are looking for, you are bound to end up nowhere.
  • Comment on other similar niche blogs and forums - This is one of the very slowest but sure shot ways to gain niche traffic.
  • Guest posting - Once you involve yourself in serious guest posting then you can be rest assured that your tutorials will gain enough publicity and some solid backlinks.
  • Link back to other similar niche blogs - You tend to increase conversation when you include the links of other blogs in your tutorials. You tell them that you care and that you are reading them daily. In turn they will link to you whenever they feel necessary.
  • Social Media Marketing - Again, you want me to explain this? You want me to teach you the importance of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and the likes? Which bunker do you live in?
  • Search Engine Optimization - Basically, SEO is all about pleasing Google. And, we have already talked a lot about SEO so let us just move on.

You know what? I can go on with these obvious ways to gain traffic but you will get bored very soon. So, let us just jump over to the hidden world of community news submissions for design tutorials.

A Quick Brush with Community News Websites

Before we dive into the world of community news websites, let us understand the tidbits about the same. This information will surely come in handy for those who are new to community news websites:

  • Basically, community news websites share knowledge that they receive from a submission page that invites readers to submit handy tutorials that are niche specific. Readers submit useful design tutorial links (of there or other blogs) via the submission page. Then the admin of that community website publishes a link to that tutorial on its community page. The idea is simple and proves to be very handy to drive traffic to design blogs if the tutorials are listed on other high end design blogs.
  • Advantages - Once your tutorial is listed on a community news website then you get traffic from that website and an important backlink which helps from SEO perspective.
  • Disadvantages - It might take several submissions over multiple community news websites before your tutorial is listed on some sort of community website. Also, at times the returns aren’t as big as the efforts.
  • It is easy to create your own community news website and submission page. A simple blog like theme which links to external tutorials is all that you need to have your own community news website. You will figure this out when you start checking the plethora of examples that are about to follow. The submission page will be more or less like your contact form with the field titles edited to suit the community news submission page requirements.
  • We have published similar lists before too! But, as you know it. You, our readers, constantly search for fresh content so we thought why not go ahead and publish a fresh list of community news websites. So, here they are.

Done! Enough talking! Now, let us dive into the endless list (101 is kind-of endless in itself, right?) of community news websites. Stick around and do try them.

NOTE - Please keep the below pointers in mind for all the links that are about to follow:

  • PageRank and Alexa are bound to change with time. Check latest pagerank here and latest Alexa here.
  • PageRank mentioned is the PageRank of community news page of that particular website.
  • Alexa mentioned is of the homepage of that website.
  • Links to community news page and submit form of that particular website are given for your ease.
  • Where required, two extra line of description will be given below each website.

    Hi, thanks for this list!

    From my experience, goodtutorials.com is worth trying. If your tutorial gets accepted, you receive some decent traffic for a long time. I submitted there my first tutorial on February and it’s still getting traffic. The only disadvantage is that it takes some time before your tutorial gets reviewed, 2 – 3 weeks.

    Quick questions for Salman: Have you ever tried submitting to Hongkiat? Is it easy to get accepted?

      All seems to check out. There are instructions and descriptions, which could explain why they made the list. As for 9 Rules, you can try and contact them. Design Bump did this too because of spammers, so I think 9 Rules is becoming strict on approving articles.

    I started my personal blog more than a half year ago, and was like: “Hmm, I’m gonna rock and get as much traffic as possible”. But then I just tired of it, I’m not a big guy in marketing. So, I keep posting some tutorials and articles that are valuable for me, sharing new stuff I learned etc. And I’m truly happy when there are some people stucking on my blog for 30-40 minutes.
    The point is I’m feeling that my blog is worth to be known more than at the moment, but I have no time for all those marketing things. So, yeah. You can be a great writer, but without self promotion you will not be able to succeed as blogger. That’s my point.

    I started my personal blog more than a half year ago, and was like: “Hmm, I’m gonna rock and get as much traffic as possible”. But then I just tired of it, I’m not a big guy in marketing. So, I keep posting some tutorials and articles that are valuable for me, sharing new stuff I learned etc. And I’m truly happy when there are some people stucking on my blog for 30-40 minutes.
    The point is I’m feeling that my blog is worth to be known more than at the moment, but I have no time for all those marketing things. So, yeah. You can be a great writer, but without self promotion you will not be able to succeed as blogger. That’s my point.

    It is interesting since yesterday I was searching about how in design community I can submit my post and what else expect commenting and guest post I can do.
    Looks like you heard me and this is great list for me.

    I love online marketing, particularly the challenge of marketing effectively with beautiful, on-brand websites that function as expected and deliver killer business results.

      All seems to check out. There are instructions and descriptions, which could explain why they made the list. As for 9 Rules, you can try and contact them. Design Bump did this too because of spammers, so I think 9 Rules is becoming strict on approving articles.

    Hi, thanks for this list!

    From my experience, goodtutorials.com is worth trying. If your tutorial gets accepted, you receive some decent traffic for a long time. I submitted there my first tutorial on February and it’s still getting traffic. The only disadvantage is that it takes some time before your tutorial gets reviewed, 2 – 3 weeks.

    Quick questions for Salman: Have you ever tried submitting to Hongkiat? Is it easy to get accepted?
