Blog syndication services help to promote blogs online among major publishers. Bloggers can apply to join the services and they syndicate the content to their client publishers. Blog syndication services essentially work as agents for bloggers and help them get advertisements and revenue by linking the blog with well known and frequently visited websites. Major blog syndication services have well known article publishing directories and newspapers as their clients and promote blogs on their websites. They link blogs on specific subjects and pay a portion of the revenue they earn from their clients or a fixed fee to the blogger. The blog syndication service has a team of editors who check the quality of the blog before promoting it among their clients. The team of editors match the content of the blog with what their clients want and promote the blog accordingly. The content of the blog and updates are constantly monitored and rated so that only high quality content is syndicated to the websites of their clients. Blog syndication services welcome copy editors and writers with existing blogs to sign up with the service. After the blog passes their stringent editorial and quality guidelines they begin the promotion of the blog in major websites resulting in increased traffic to the blog. Once the publisher approves of the blog the blog syndication service negotiates a price for the publication of the blog. Some services also add to or edit the content of the blog to make sure that publishers will accept the blog and pay for its publication. Some services also distribute the content of the blog to the print edition of the publisher in addition to the electronic edition. The blogger retains the copyright of the content and the blog remains in the name of the blogger. The blog syndication service provides the valuable service of marketing the blog to interested publishers to increase the reach and to bring in increased traffic to the blog.
