5 ways to get Traffic to your blog
A very common question which everyone faces while starting a blog is “How will i get someone to read it ” ? . Well there can be a lot of answers to this question . Here i will describe a few methods which i used when i started my blog . Initially i also used to get around 10 hits for my blog but now it is much better , so this article will basically help the newcomers out there
1)Submit you site to search engines
Submitting your sites to search engines like Google , Yahoo , MSN etc will feature your site in the search results . But remember , getting your site listed on top of search results is not an easy job , it requires some knowledge of Search Engine Optimization .
2)Content is the king
For blogs one thing i have come to know is that content is the king . If your content is good , people will revisit your site and will become regular readers . Always post content that is useful and unique , do not copy and paste , posting Tutorials and How To’s help a lot . The more unique the content , the more appealing it will be and dont forget to link to the original post if required.
3)Submitting your site to free directories
There are a lot of traffic exchange sites like BlogMad , BlogExplosion etc .All you have to do this is to sign up on the site , visit other members blogs and earn credits …the more blogs you view , the more credits you earn and the more credits you earn , the more traffic you get . But i dont recommend this thing . Basically people will visit your site for the sake of earning credits and will stay there for 30 sec ..so dont expect much regular traffic . But still it might get your blog noticed .
Back Links are key to getting traffic to your blog . If you write a good article , people will link to it from there blog and this will get you traffic and exposure . One way is to link exchange with other bloggers . Place a link to there site on your blog and request them to do the same . This might also help you getting a good Google Pagerank (though i am not sure about it ) .
5)Comment on other blogs
Do Comment on other people blogs ..this will make them visit your blog to see who commented on there blog . And by comments i mean genuine comments which relate to the topic . Try to start up a conversation . This way you will also make a lot of friends .
There are a lot of other ways of getting traffic . I will write about them once i experiment with them and get the results . Do share yout tips with me by leaving comments .
