Syndicate Your Blog To The Top 6 Trafficked Social Media Sites Online



Benefits of  blog syndication  


Some time ago I  wrote the following posts that rationalized a blueprint for blog syndication based on data provided by Alexa:  




I have subsequently experienced the following benefits of that simple link wheel:

  • this blog has over two thousand subscribers on Feedcat at the time of writing.
  • backlinks to the RSS aggregators have been indexed in the search engines.

I'm writing this introduction to inspire you and to celebrate the success of  my blog promotion strategies, which are, by the way, born out of inspiriation from Heaven.

This follows in to my next project, (partially implemented) for a social media syndication network. Note that there are many sites (such as IFTTT) and software that offer these services. However, it is important, in my opinion, to target and work the most busy sites.

You Need A Blog Traffic Management Plan



Quantcast (2015), has ranked the top 100 most trafficed sites in the United States based on  a  Quantcast asynchronous tag on each web site. This immediately imposes some limitations on the data, but it is very valuable since the top sites can be crossed matched as accurate eleswhere.

NB: Google.com is ranked as number 1 traffiked site by both Alexa and Quantcast with 220,398,144 monthly visits. You should register for  Blogger/Blogspot and sync to Google plus because it is the easiest way to be indexed online.

Top 6 Quantcast social media sites compared with their Alexa worldwide ranking 

When the global and US ranking for these top 6 social media platforms are compared, we see that only Facebook and Instagram metrics are consistent across the board. We can ignore that and focus on the fact that these sites show up in these metrics in basically the same order. 

More importantly, we need to examine where the traffic comes from as this tells us how to structure the syndication network.

Main source of site traffic

Use the data below to construct your  syndication pattern or wheel (I know some marketers hate that word, but the data shows a wheel).   


For example, one could syndicate from the blog to:

  • Google plus
  • videos to You Tube 
  • sync youtube to twitter
  • sync twitter to facebook fan page
  • post from fan page to relevant groups (at least 1 and engage there) 
  • sync images to pinterest and instagram then 
  • pinterest and to twitter which will automatically sync to facebook
  • instagram can be synced to other image sites
