|Blogging Suggestions where to post|
I am curious what others have to say about what sites are good to post blogs for SEO promotion. Naturally we can create a blog site for the purpose of promoting another site. But what blogging elsewhere? Besides the usually such as digg and squidoo.
Appreciate any input on the subject.
Some blogs allow guest blog posts , when the blogger wants a break.

Not the usual for everyone.
I suspect you're looking for places you can post that are guaranteed to accept your submission, or who have basically no standards or barriers to entry. Places like digg and squidoo. I don't have a lot to offer, other than if you're looking for a paid service, check out the exhibitors at pubcon: [pubcon.com...] . One of them has a service somewhat similiar to what you're talking about. Kind of a pyramid of blogs and stuff, with squidoo and a few others at the top of the pyramid.
If you're looking for 'real' blogs, then you can find them in your niche by searching for them. Serious, successful bloggers have two problems - they want more content and are happy to have someone else write it for them, and secondly, it's an overwhelming amount of work for them to sift through the proposals for guest articles they get. So getting their ear can be difficult.
For those folks, I would approach them by suggesting that if they'll consider a guest article, that you will pre-write an informative, non-promotional guest article. You'll give them three subjects they can choose from for the post, and you'll then write the article - under no obligation to them. They don't have to agree to publish the article until after they've read it.
You might even try sending an example article along with the request, so they can see how you write.
This only works though if you write articles of high enough quality that a top blogger would publish it. But this technique definitely takes the pressure off the blogger of having to sort through whether you're a decent writer or not - and that is a big concern for them.
In posting our article on Squidoo and Digg we only get a link from a farm and little bit traffic.
One of the tricky thing to get traffic and reputed link is to post on others blogs who has good traffic and better visibility in SERP as well.
There are many sites like Squidoo & Digg - StumbleUpon, Hub-Pages, GoogleKnol, and relevant Forums sometimes. You can approach to relevant theme bloggers with unique, informative and unpublished content. I am sure you will get what you want :)
Where do you do the most reading about your niche? Is guest posting allowed there? Links allowed on meaninful an on topic comments? Ann Smarty's myblogguest DOT com site might be worth investigating too.
Some niche forums allow signature links after so many posts. They may be vauable than other forums (domain reputation).
I have the best response with bookmarking on sites and spending a lot of time on the content of the target site. You already mentioned Digg, but there are lots of others to utilize, like Stumbleupon, Reddit, Yahoo buzz, Yahoo bookmarks, Tipd, Twitter, Facebook, Kirtsy, Friendfeed, Delicious, and many more. When I publish new content it is on Google within minutes not hours or day.
To make sure that it is on the first page for the keyword that I am targeting takes more effort and sometimes it falls short, but I always have secondary and tertiary keywords too. It is all a matter of balancing keywords and content.
If you have some very good content that is pulling organic traffic, then you should consider issuing a Press Release for those too. Evergreen content that is consistent with traffic deserves a Press Release.
I also ping the content when it is new and when I update it.
Another thing that many do not do is submit to the search engines. I do this periodically, about once every 3 months, but I do not know how effective it is. But it is easy to do, and only takes a couple of minutes, so why not?
If you have the time then sure, why not build a few HubPages and Squidoo lenses that are related to one of your site pages or your content and link to it. It all helps.
Sprinkle in some occasional forum posting and you have a great mix. I have never had much luck with automation, so I try to do it all manually, but sometimes I give in and hire forum posters.
There are sites, not article directories, that publish blog posts and articles on other blogs as a service to the blog owners, and the author links that you place are kept intact (if they are honest).
The main thing is traffic, and traffic equals sticky content and the correct choice and balance of keywords.
I do not know if this is what you were after or not but this is what I do and it works for me.
If you really want to become a good blogger, you should choose wordpress or blogspot. here you can have a free account and a free blog to post in. Now if you want to promote your website using these free blogs, you have to invest your time, time and time.
Write informative posts about your product or service, make some anchor link in the post targeting your keyword. A regular blog posting can get you some really good back link with your desired anchor link. Maintaining one or two blog is a bit easy than creating blogs on all available free blog sites. If you think you can handle that, there are hundreds of free blog sites where you can get a blog for free. Just you require articles to post there. blog, wordpress, blogger, ning, hubpages and many more. Just google for free blog accounts or free blog and you can get.
Rather than going for sites which post articles without any moderation (link wheel sites) my suggestion would be going for guest blogging at established sites. This will help you not only in improving your status in your niche but also will allow you to gain more traffic and valuable backlinks.
It is nice to choose good blog to post as they are instant approvals and we can target our keywords in this blog.And while posting the comment it should be related to that blog only.
you have to go for blog commenting in those sites which are relevant to your theme and you should also go for forum posting .
