How to Use Link Parties to Promote your Blog

One of the easiest ways that I have found to increase traffic and make new blogger connections is with link parties and blog hops. They are fun, easy to use, and you can spend as much or as little time with them as you want. In addition to increasing your traffic, you will discover some great posts that you would have otherwise missed.

What is a linky party or blog hop?

Just like real life parties, every link up party is different. The basic concept is that you share a post of yours by “linking up” in a party. Then bloggers will browse through the other linked posts and support each other. You read and comment on posts in exchange for people to read and comment back. 

Most link parties have rules, so make sure that you read them before joining!

The more active you are with the other bloggers, the more chance that you have of getting traffic. Engaging with other bloggers is a great way to start a mutually beneficial relationship.

Tailwind Visual Marketing SuiteSide note – Another great way to boost your blog traffic is with
Tailwind, an app that allows you to schedule pins on Pinterest and posts on Instagram. You can also join tribes where you share pins with other bloggers to help promote each other. These tribes work a little like link parties. If you sign up using my link, you get a free month and a $15 credit if you decide to join.

Here are some great parties to check out:
