One of the joys of traveling is being able to chronicle your memories and share it with other people. This is perhaps why travel blogs are increasingly popular these days.
The great thing about keeping a travel blog though is that it is also a great way to make money. Travel blogs may abound on the Internet, but equally plenty are the people who are genuinely interested in finding out about your travel experiences so as to make better choices during their own trip preparations. As more people stumble on your blog and read your posts on various places you’ve stayed, sights you’ve seen, and your food choices, the more money you can make from your blog.
In order to get more travellers to visit your blog though, you need a good way to promote your blog. You can always do this by doing SEO, participating in social media sites, and getting links and reviews. All four strategies to blog promotion take some time and effort to produce results. However, there are ways you can easily get links and get reviewed if only you know where to look.
A good way to get your travel blog reviewed and earn links almost without any effort on your part is by submitting your blog for review in sound directories like Blog Search Engine. Instead of putting so much effort in asking for links, all you need to do is pay the basic $14.99 fee to get reviewed, listed on their index, and be given the option of upgrading to a package that can get you even more links from other blogs.
The good thing about this blog promotion approach is that you can just do it one time and forget about it. Even if your travel blog is not primarily meant for monetization, who knows just how much you can make after promoting your blog. At least if you do make some money from it, you’ll end up with some extra you can use to splurge on your next vacation, which perhaps would even be here in Sri Lanka!
