I recently had a guest article published on the Technshare blog where I share with you four top web 2.0 blogging / publishing sites; HubPages, Squidoo, Triond and Flixya, and just to add a fifth here, InfoBarrel is also useful.
These sites take article marketing to a whole new level as not only are they all revenue sharing, but using them is also a great way to market and promote your own website or blog. They’re also socially engaging, so you get to make friends thus drive more traffic to your site.
Ok so today I’d like to take an even closer look at Triond. Triond is very much a blogging platform like no other, although out of the five mentioned above, thet are the least popular one. Triond is completely free to register and use and you can also register by using your Facebook credentials.
Your articles are published on one of the many established sites on the Triond Web Publishing network each with its own mass of audience. Publishing articles on Triond will give you the opportunity to promote your own content, make lots of friends, get backlinks and receive top referral traffic to your blog or website. That’s basically Triond in a nutshell.
The dashboard is a simple layout; the main navigation give’s you some cool options on drop-down. The dashboard boasts an overview on earnings, content activity, visitor trends, top referring sites, traffic geographical distribution, top search phrases and everyone else’s top search phrases for both the last 30 days.

You can add your resource and affiliate links, images, and you can also search for related images to match the nature of your content, which is a very useful if you don’t fancy uploading your own images.
