Content is not king. Forget what you’ve learned. Content shared in the right communities can reach “king” status if you know where to post it and how to connect with fellow community members. Optimizing your content comes down to creating magnetic headlines for your content, which vibe with a carefully-selected, targeted audience, and building relationships with community members.

    Hi Matthew,
    These 3 communities rock but it’s like is beginning to take the lead. The community is active and the backend activities are right on spot

    Good to see you there 😉

    Thanks a lot, Matt, for taking the time to write this and for including on your list. Even though you haven’t shared this yet on Kingged, I found it somehow 😉 . Feel free to share it and let me know, so I can speed up the approval, since new users’ posts need to be approved first before going live.

    About this post itself, I am happy to see the “kingged” concept catching on, 😉 … That’s what we are all about at We believe that if your Content is King, let others decide that, and if it really is King, they will help you promote it, to reach even more people. And we help, in our own small way, to get the content in front of lots of people, who will now decide that.

    And of course, the more people that “king” the content, the more it gets to the frontpage of, where it gets even more “kings” and of course more exposure.

    So, yes, it’s no longer enough to just write a KINGLIKE content and do nothing else. Writing the content is just one part of it. Promoting the content seems even more important now. Thankfully is helping A LOT with that aspect, thanks to the MILLIONS of visits we have sent to lots of the blogs that have their posts shared on Kingged, 🙂

    About Triberr and BlogEngage, it’s always a good idea to use more than one blogging community, so yes, I am happy to see you mentioned others as well. Like I have said many times before, I don’t advise anyone to use just ONE blogging community, and not the others. The more, the better. We actually need MORE awesome tightly focused social networking and/or blogging communities that bloggers can share their posts on, and for these sites to REALLY do more to help get these posts out there.

    In fact, the tightly focused social networking and/or blogging communities are not enough, for the hundreds or even thousands of awesome Internet marketing, affiliate marketing, blogging, SEO, etc type of posts that get published almost daily. I hate it when I see such truly awesome KINGLIKE posts that get published but don’t get any traffic, comment nor engagement. That is truly sad and shouldn’t be happening!

    So, the more tightly focused social networking and/or blogging communities like,,, etc, that bloggers use, the better. And these tightly focused social networking and/or blogging communities should actually do much more than just allow posts to be shared on our sites. They should all actively help with promoting the posts shared on their sites!

    Once again, thanks Matt, for this piece. Remember to share it on Kingged and PM me when you do so I can speed up the approval and so that I can “king” it and share this comment as well, 🙂

      Hello Kingsley,

      Thanks for a very insightful comment, you really walk the walk when it comes to community and content marketing.

      I like what you have done on Although I have just recently started using it, I am having tons of fun.

      I try not to spread myself too thin on too many platforms, and rather pick a couple that work for me.

      First, one needs to be the user to get influential on ANY platform. People just think that they can come in, proclaim themselves gurus, and get love in social media. It doesn’t work like that (unless you are Lady Gaga). So, you need pick your platforms wisely. You need to learn the platform you are getting on – really read up on it, use it, and observe (I read all your introductory emails – great tips).

      Second, for me, it’s all about building relationships. So I am looking for platforms where I can meet like-minded individuals who live happy Internet lifestyles. Positive energy is key. That’s why I stopped using Reddit because there were just too many haters there, spreading negative energy. I try not to argue on the Internet.

      I have used for couple weeks only, but I have gotten great engagement and users are very welcoming. I also found that the posts featured on your homepage are indeed great content, and are classified well into the right categories. The fact that you are moderating is key, don’t rely just on the algo, scale by bringing more mods. Even Google has thousands of human employes who manually screen Google’s search results.

      I found out that my recent guest post on Problogger has been featured on the homepage of Kingged for three straight days, and the conversion continues in the comments section:

      I looked for this post on but couldn’t find it. Can you share a link so that I cen ‘king’ it?

      Yes, as a new user my submissions are slow, any way we can speed up the process? I only share my recent content that is worthy of being ‘kingged.’

      Talk to you soon!

        Kingsley says:

        You are welcome, Matt. And thanks for the kind words, 🙂

        I have approved this post on, by the way, so expect lots of visits and engagement, in the coming days from this, 😉

        I agree with you about the need NOT to spread oneself too thin trying to join every social network. You are also right about picking the right ones wisely. Thankfully the ones you mentioned, along with a couple others, are good enough!

        You are also spot on about spending time to build relationships with the right individuals. That’s where many people go wrong. They try to join all the social networks and only use them “dumping grounds” for whenever they publish a post. They fail to take the time to interact and build relationships with other members, let alone read other posts shared by other members.

        And as expected, such people get back what they put in!

        I also agree with you about avoiding places with negative people. Why spend time with people who bring you down?!

        Thanks for noticing the hardwork that our moderators put in daily to ensure quality KINGLIKE content only gets and stays on the frontpage. For nearly 2 years now, we have always had at least 5 to 10 inhouse team members doing a lot of work on the backend – contributing, moderating, commenting, etc. All these help to keep only the right type of quality KINGLIKE content on the frontpage, 🙂

        Once again, thanks for the kind words, and thanks for writing and sharing this on Like I said, I have approved it and “kingged” it. I am confident other Kinggers will too!

          By far, of all the blogger community-site owners you are the most active in terms of discussing things Kingsley. Even though you are so busy with many things you still find time to interact with other bloggers and website owners and that’s your ace.

          You are awesome man I look up to you for making Kingged a success.

          To Matthew: thanks for listing these sites. I have acquired many acquaintances with the help of Kingged and in my personal experience, people are really interactive there.

          IMHO, I think we can add up

          or even Reddit in this list.

          Never tried being on blog engage, worth to try. 😀

          • Kingsley
            Kingsley says:

            Thanks a lot for your kind words, Fervil. Sorry for the late response. I just came back to this post and saw your comment.

            Yes, I am super busy especially with trying to get the new design and functions up but never too busy to respond to or attend to awesome members like you, 🙂

            Talking about looking up to me to make Kingged a success, the truth is that I am looking up to and working with awesome Kinggers like you to make it successful. Without you and other members, there’s only a little I can do!

            Thanks again, Fervil.

    Hi Matthew,

    That first paragraph said a lot! Believe me, it was epic and to an extent made good sense. During the good old days, just churning out epic, good and Kingly posts was all that mattered. But times have changed now! Now, content alone is not the King. If someone believes so, then he/she is getting the plot terribly wrong!

    Turns out that promoting the content at the right place can make all the difference! Avoiding it is like ignoring the fortunes of the blog!

    And just sharing it any community won’t do! One must make sure that the content is shared on those sites and platforms that are closely related to the niche, platforms that are active, platforms that can guarantee tons of engagement, a platform that can guarantee the right audience!

    I mean, to promote content on a platform or site, the site should satisfy the above qualities. The 3 communities you mentioned very well qualifies for it and satisfies all the prerequisites that I mentioned above.

    What a good sight to have Kingged right there on top! I’m a huge fan of Kingged. Due to time constraints, I’ve limited my promotional activities to few social media sites and Kingged only.

    But Kingged hasn’t disappointed me! It has blessed me with good traffic, user engagement and a flurry of good comments at my blog! Further, due to my good participation, I’ve been also rewarded many times over there!

    Next comes Triberr. Though I’m not active there, I’m well aware of the potential of this platform. I’d like myself to be more active over there, but time just wouldn’t permit me it seems.

    This blogging community also has many positive reviews associated with it. It being a premium community, I’ve not really decided to join it so far. Particularly since I have other alternatives available for free! Still, it demands a place in this article, I know!

    I found the link to this post on Kingged.

    No man is an island and the the fortunate thing is that we all need each to survive so it is in life and blogging is of no exception.

    Promoting and engaging others as a blogger is one key way to success and that means joining interactive communities. is my favourite among the list.

    Hi Matthew.

    I disagree, in a way.

    To even bother sharing your content, you need to ensure that your content is reliable, accessible and relevant – or, as I like to say, fit for a King!

    Without killer content, your content will never reach the king status you talk about, regardless of where you share it.

    So in a way, content is STILL king.

    Thanks for the links and the tips. I have recently joined Kingged (where I saw this post), and it is a very promising platform where I will be participating on a regular basis. i will also be sure to check out the others you have mentioned.

    Thanks again!

    • Matthew Capala
      Matthew Capala says:

      Thanks Ruchard – I am with you, start with building a really king-like content before you talk about and share it – it’s not about trying to build links and optimize mediocre content – rather it’s about helping great content be King in the right context and being native to the plaform you are publishing it on

    Hello Matt, this is really awesome. Communities is a place to share mind together with friends. Some posts on sites like kingged and just leave, that is not too good. One has to contribute to other people’s if you want them to contribute to yours. Thanks for sharing.
