8 Places to Syndicate Your Content

151102266_d7899307f2_mYou created your blog post, click publish, and think to yourself, “now what?” It happens to all of us. We create the epic post we know will go viral, but aside from sharing the post with a few of your friends on Facebook and a scant array of Twitter followers, how else do you share your content?

You want people to read your post, and share it with all of their friends. The problem is, how can you find the sharers online who cannot wait to tell everyone they know about your blog post?

With the following 8 sites, you now have a way to leverage your reach to get your content seen by your target market.

8 Places To Syndicate Your Content

  1. StumbleUpon-One of the older social bookmarking sites. This site delivers traffic to me in waves. However, the waves are like Tsunamis of traffic. W when they do come in, because your traffic will jump in a matter of hours. Some of my best traffic days on the web came from StumbleUpon.
  2. Inbound.org-This site is one of my favorite new gems in sharing content. It will not drive gobbles of traffic, but the traffic will be consistent. That is just as important.
  3. DMOZ-The standard in directories. One of the few directories that can still drive massive search traffic.
  4. Aviva-While DMOZ is the standard, Aviva is one of the other few directories that is still useful for syndicating content and getting backlinks. They not only have a traditional directory for websites, but also have a blog directory, which is great for syndicating your content.
  5. Google+ Communities-While groups exist on most social networking platforms, few have the power and leverage of Google+ communities. Consider for a moment that Google takes into account all the +1’s you have for an article. This means everyone who +1’s your articles on various communities count towards your Search algorithm for your blog.  On a more important note, you can also connect with key players in your niche or industry as well, to create relationships.
  6. JustRetweet-Do you need more people to share your content on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Then JustRetweet is your spot. The idea here is that the more people you share content for, the more points you accrue for people sharing your content.
  7. Triberr- One of my favorite places on the internet to syndicate blog content. Triberr is a community where bloggers can share each other’s content via Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Similar to JustRetweet, but with more of a social aspect to the group, along with a laser targeted focus on solely bloggers.
  8. Scoop.it-One of my up and coming content syndication sites. This is a really great place to share your blog posts with others, where it can be picked up on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Also, their suggest a post feature is ridiculously good.

Syndicating Your Content

Is the list above a comprehensive grouping of all the places you can content your syndication? No! However, the sites above have proven themselves consistently to be among the best on the internet for driving reliable traffic to people’s sites. It is not possible to syndicate your content to every site on the web. That is why you need to focus on syndicating your content to only the best of the best.

  1. This is really great post. It is helps us a lot to information and also for the new beginners too.

  2. Hello Andy,

    Very nice list of places to syndicate content… I usually use stumbleupon & scoop.it to get traffic from them.. These 2 were really awesome and mind blowing.. I will use Google plus communities as well as triberr to increase my blog traffic… Keep writing such a good stuff… Happy blogging…

  3. Hi Andy,

    As i m new to this blogging, this is very helpful for me. Recently i started using the inbound.org, which helped lot to reach the audience.

    Thanks.

  4. Be careful with StumbleUpon as it can drive traffic but can also increase your Bounce Rate. Most users click on that Stumble button only seconds after they reach the next website. So I’m just curious to see if other bloggers see it like this or if I’m doing something wrong.

    Thanks,
    Kevin.

  5. Himanshu,

    Glad this was helpful for you. Just started using Scoop.it in the past month, but have been on StumbleUpon for years. That site has amazing powers.

  6. A very nice list. First time I heard about Aviva, will definitely check that out. I have accounts in all others but only active in few of them. Need to spend a bit more time on the other ones. But with so many services it can be daunting to manage all of them.

  7. Thanks for the list! There were a couple of those I’d never heard of before. Will definitely be checking them out now!

  8. Most of this list is pretty new to me, and I have a bunch of tabs opened up in my browser now that I am off to investigate. Thanks!

  9. Truly you mentioned about some nice platforms, and I have a doubt that these sites gives us no follow links, is there any problem if our site receives too many no follow links.

  10. Great list!

    I’m familiar with most of them except for Inbound.org and just Retweet.com. I’ll definitely check out the others.

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. Hi Andy,
    Nice list,all very good to syndicate to content. But you miss out Reddit.It also very nice place to syndicate content.

  12. i read your blogpost and use it on same time, I like justretweet.com I never used it before but loved it. thanks

  13. Great post. I have used StumbleUpon and I must say that it is a great source of traffic. It gives you huge visitors but the bounce rate is too high. So I still consider search traffic as the measure of success of a project, the other methods are equally good.

  14. just retweet and DMOZ are great sources for me. Twiends is similar to JustRetweet but it allows users to follow each other, it can not promote your tweets like JustRetweet. Thanks for this list

  15. Inbound.org and Triberr are new to me, but I will check them out. I like to have a shortlist with good quality syndication sites on hand, so this very useful. Thank you!

  16. Stubmleupon is really awesome content sharing site as well as google plus. But I have not tried Inbound. Nice post! Thanks for sharing.

  17. Personally one of my favorite ways to syndicate my content is to create an attractive image for it using Picmonkey etc. and then pin it to one of my Pinterest boards.

    Once you’ve been doing this for a while you’ll likely find that you build up quite a following – and you’ll be surprised just how long the lifecycle of a pin can be in comparison to a tweet for example. In my opinion Pinterest therefore offers more “leverage” than many other syndication sources and I’m seeing it consistently in the top 10 referrers to my blogs I promote on Pinterest.

  18. most of them are for blogs written in english, it doesn’t fit our Indonesian article, but nice post anyway :D

  19. I usually use stumble upon, google plus, facebook and Reddit. You have provided more options. I will definitely give them a try.

  20. Stumbleupon is the best option to syndicate the content for the blog. I always find good content while stumbling web pages on Stumbleupon.

  21. The problem i have with syndicate content is that most of the time the content is delivered to the wrong audience which can increase your traffic and bounce rate.

  22. Hi,
    I recently Started Using StumbleUpon and it really gave a boost to my traffic. It nearly became my second biggest source of traffic to one of my blogs.

    Thanks for providing more such options

    Thanks,
    IFTISEO

  23. Andy, very fine post. Have used some of these but some I was not aware existed. As to DMOZ, I cannot figure them out. First, I did not know you could submit blog posts there. Second, I have tried to get my blog (frommtaxes.wordpress.com) and/or my website listed there two times and never heard back from them. Are they still active? Is there any way to get listed there as my blog is a fairly active and popular tax and estate tax blog? Your thoughts?
