10 Ways To Increase Blog Traffic By 18.9%

So your blog freaking rules! But where are all of the people. It seems like other blogs that really are no good get all of the traffic and comments. Worst of all they brag about making a thousand dollars on AdSense in an hour. What is a person to do? These are ten simple steps to follow to get more and more traffic to your blog.

1. Burn your feed with feed burner. Throw up the subscriber Chiclets. Tweak all of the options. Make feed burner ping all of the hottest services so people actually know what you are doing up to the second.

2. When you post ping your blog. Most blogging mediums ping automatically. Blogger pings to only one service. In this case pingomatic is super important. Hitting pingomatic after every post will drive more good ad clicking traffic on board. If you have word press this is automatically done unless you turned it off. In this case find other pinging services like auto pinger, ping my blog and bpinger. Submit that blog to search engines with free web submission for instance. All of these pinging services, directory submissions and search submissions are major tipping points where a blog can go from obscurity to notoriety in one second. Just do it.

3. Leverage social media. The best sites for promotion are consistently digg, twitter, facebook, myspace, reddit, delicious, mixx, technorati, blog catalog, zimbio, squidoo among others. Get to popular social media sites. Add people as friends. Spread the word. Do self promotional broadcasts, pod casts and blog posts. Winning social media is a major deal. Google can hate you but if you have social media you have something.

4. Post on exact google key phrases. Many great photographers for example have great sets that are not well rooted in key words. As a result hardly a soul sees their sets online. Just type stuff into google and see suggestions. Study your web analytics. Go to other search engines and social search to see what are hot keywords and tags. This research pays for itself and is in no way a waste of time. The difference between a blog rock star and the next annoying wanna be comes down to keyword density, seo, subject branding, and authority. Win it quick. Also effective tags helps people navigate your blog or site much easier.

5. Do not be afraid to sell stuff. Nothing is a hotter key word than these companies that are trying to sell things. Aggregators pick up on it and your page rank will increase just moving materials online. You will get richer and everything will be cool.

6. Bang out a lot of content. I guess if quality is lost could cost the blog traffic that comes back. Never the less people who really do a lot on a site over time will get alot of traffic, links and everything else. You can for instance write about your thoughts for a few years and become a top blog. Very little on the Internet goes more than a month so just pursing out 8 to 10 posts a day for years will make your blog a staple of social media, search engines, and you will have an active reader base.

7. React to other blog posts. The art of the blog reaction is one of the hottest big traffic drivers of the day. If you can really shake things up and impress the traffic that comes in you can often see big blog growth.

8. Leave comments on all of the high traffic blogs. Blog commenting is a major waste of time. But if you are reading the blog anyways try shaking stuff up. Get attention and you will get some more eyes on your site.

9. Focus on your sites design. Whether you spend the time or the money it is up to you. But better looking sites will get better attitudes as well of the people jumping on board.

10. Do not take blogging too seriously. There is way to much bad advice going around. Just try to make as much money as possible no matter what the liars out there tell you. People who make no money never never never want to see an ounce of success in someone else. Nothing is impossible my friends. Everything is improbably but hard work can bust up Dr. improbable and turn it into Dr. begone and finally into Dr. wham? Know these fools when you see em. Make money online because you deserve to be rich.

Your post is nothing but the truth! Content is not King without getting the words out about your blog. Social media can help spread words about your site faster than a wildfire. I post comments on a lot of blogs. I post comments mostly on blogs that are DoFollow.
