Monster Blog Directory List

Lee Odden     Blog Marketing

So you’ve started a blog and you are looking for traffic. One way is to add your blog and RSS feed to blog/RSS search engines and directories. But where do you submit?

TopRank recently published a list of blog and RSS feed search engines and directories with the submit urls at: Monster Blog Directory Submit List. Considering the name, I guess this post would have been more relevant yesterday. Oh well, better now than never.

This is not the comprehensive list we use for blog marketing clients, but it’s certainly a useful starting point of over 80 blog and RSS directories. We’ll be adding to this list as we hear of new RSS blog directories and search engines that allow submissions.

Don’t forget to ping everytime you make a post to your blog. Most blog software either does this automatically to services like pingomatic.com or can be configured to do so. Other ping services include pingoat.com (very fast and large list), pings.ws and feedshot.com.

Submitting your blog to regular web site directories is also useful. The Internet Search Engine Database is an excellent resource for finding major and niche directories.

Keep in mind, that directory submissions are only one of many ways to create traffic to a blog. Create a resource out of your blog content and other blogs will link to it. Those are the best traffic and link sources of all.

  1. Another “must do” is to add your RSS feeds to your Google and Yahoo homepage. (I presume you already have acocunts with Google and Yahoo.) Everytime you log in, Yahoo and Google, respectively will check you RSS feed for the latest updates. They will also check it even if you don’t log in, but experience suggest logining in every now and then helps. Be sure to add ALL of your RSS feeds, not just the “master” feed. This is completely ethical seo and internet marketing.

  2. Excellent list of blog directories that accept RSS feeds also. I prefer these niche directories myself as it helps promote content, search engine visibility and backlinks.

    I also know of another Blog Directory that accepts RSS/Atom feeds, for your list.

    http://www.bloggingfusion.com , their fairly new but are growing strong.

    Take care, and again thanks for the list. I got submitting to do!

  3. Mark, I appreciate the heads up on Blogging Fusion, but we’ve decided not to list any blog/RSS directories that require a reciprocal link and BF does.

    Thanks for the list, I have submitted my site to most of them. I noticed that a few of the links are not working (towards the bottom). I used to use another blog submission list but the guy who made it did not keep it up to date and as a result a lot of broken lists and blog directories that are not online anymore, hence he lost a lot of traffic (according to alexa – down 60,000, which is a lot seeing as he was in the top 100,000)

    It would be good if you could keep this list up to date as I will use it from now on. Now I will be looking over the rest of your site to see other good information that you provide.

    Again, thank you.

  5. Thanks for the list. It’s very useful for my blog. I became your rss subscriber.

  6. Thank you for such an excellent list of blogs and rss submission sites. It really helped me a lot!!!
