15 Tips to Increase Blog Traffic
Simple Ways to Get Your Blog Noticed in the
Blogosphere Guide
The blogosphere is a big and busy world with over
100 million blogs and growing. How do you
attract visitors

your blog? Follow these simple
tips to drive traffic to your blog.
1. Write Well and Write Often
Frequently updating your blog with useful
content is the first step to building your blog's
audience. The content you write is what will keep
readers coming back for more. Make sure you
have something meaningful to say to them and
say it often to maintain their interest and keep
them loyal.
Furthermore, post frequently to increase the
number of chances you have for your blog's
content to be noticed by search engines such as
Google or Technorati.
2. Submit Your Blog to Search Engines
Get on the radar screen for the popular search
engines such as Google and Yahoo! by submitting
your blog's URL to them. Most search engines
provide a 'Submit' link (or something similar) to
notify the search engine of your new blog, so
those search engines will crawl it and include
your pages in their results.
It's important to understand that simply
submitting your blog to search engines doesn't
mean your pages will appear at the top of a
Google search results screen, but at least your
blog will be included and will have the chance of
being picked up by a search engine.
3. Use and Update Your Blogroll
By adding links to sites you like in your blogroll,
the owners of those blogs will find your blog and
will be likely to add a reciprocal link in their
blogrolls. It's an easy way to get the link to your
blog in front of many readers on other blogs. The
hope is that some of those readers will click on
the link to your blog on the other blogs' blogrolls
and find your content interesting and enjoyable
turning them into loyal readers.
4. Harness the Power of Comments
Commenting is a simple and essential tool to
increase your blog's traffic. First, respond to
comments left on your blog to show your readers
that you value their opinions and draw them into
a two-way conversation. This will increase reader
Second, leave comments on other blogs to drive
new traffic. Make sure you leave your blog's URL &lt;-- data-blogger-escaped-more--="" data-blogger-escaped-read=""&gt;
in your comment, so you create a link back to
your own blog. Many people will read the
comments left on a blog post. If they read a
particularly interesting comment, they are highly
likely to click on the link to visit the commentor's
website. It's important to make sure you leave
meaningful comments that are likely to invite
people to click on your link to read more.
5. Syndicate Your Blog's Content with an
RSS Feed
Setting up an RSS feed button on your blog
makes it easy for your loyal readers to not just
read your blog but also know when you publish
new content.
6. Use Links and Trackbacks
Links are one of the most powerful parts of your
blog. Not only are links noticed by search
engines, but they also act as a tap on the
shoulder to other bloggers who can easily identify
who is linking to their sites. Linking helps to get
you noticed by other bloggers who are likely to
investigate the sites that are linking to them. This
may lead them to become new readers of your
blog or to add links to your blog from theirs.
You can take links to other blogs a step further by
leaving a trackback on the other blog to let them
know you've linked to them. Blogs that allow
trackbacks will include a link back to your blog in
the comments section of the post that you
originally linked to. People do click on trackback
7. Tag Your Posts
It takes a few extra seconds to add tags to each
of your blog posts, but it's worth the time in
terms of the additional traffic tags can drive to
your blog. Tags (like links) are easily noticed by
search engines. They're also key to helping
readers find your blog when they perform
searches on popular blog search engines such as
8. Submit Your Posts to Social Bookmarking
Taking the time to submit your best posts to
social bookmarking sites such as Digg,
StumbleUpon, Reddit and more can be a simple
way to quickly boost traffic to your blog.
9. Remember Search Engine Optimization
When you write your blog posts and pages,
remember to optimize your pages for search
engines to find them. Include relevant keywords
and links but don't overload your posts with too
many relevant keywords or completely irrelevant
keywords. Doing so can be considered spamming
and could have negative results such as your blog
being removed from Google's search entirely.
10. Don't Forget Images
Images don't just make your blog look pretty,
they also help people find you in search engine
listings. People often use the image search
options offered by Google, Yahoo! and other
search engines, and naming your images with
search engine optimization in mind can easily
boost your traffic.
