There are several aspects that render blogs even different than regular webpages, including the pace at which blogs are indexed, the opportunity to upload to blog folders & normal directories, pings and track backs. All of these little items will help bring more traffic to blogs. Here are 15 common strategies that you can use:
1. Build at least four keyword articles a day. Any of the biggest blogs such as Boing Boing, Regular Kos, and Instapundit (with practically tens of thousands of users every day) publish a total of 30 tiny 100-150 word posts per day under “Secrets of the A-list Bloggers: Lots of Short Posts” by TNL.net.
2. Submit to My Yahoo! If you submit your own RSS to My Yahoo, it will be indexed to Yahoo.
3. Submit to the Google Reader. When you add your own RSS blog to Google Reader, Google Blog Search will index your site.
4. Attach a related connection directory to your blog and swap links like a possessed ghost! While it may take more time than merely uploading to a search engine one time, this approach is perhaps the fastest way to get visitors to the web. Using applications such as Zeus to speed up the exchanging of connections.
5. Using ping sites such as ping-o-matic. Ping your site any time you submit a new post to it.
6. Send the blog to traditional search engines like AltaVista and MSN.
7. Send the blog to conventional directories like DMOZ. Directories (in particular DMOZ) improve Google’s importance. DMOZ is really picky, so what do you have to risk by trying it out?
8. Send as many RSS Folders and Search Engines as possible. This is a quick yet tedious procedure that can be accomplished with applications like RSS Send.
9. Posts on other sites. Don’t just leave brief, lazy comments like “I agree.” Leave well thought out responses that will cause readers to ask “who wrote this?”
10.. Using the track backs. If there is a blog you link to or quote and it is really important to your topic, leave a track back. It improves the visibility of your connection and can even score a few curious readers from the connected platform.
11. Go offline, guy. Using newspaper advertisements, neighborhood message boards, business cards, and even stickers to let as many people as possible realize that your blog exists.
Twelve. In your e-mail signature block, add a link to your site.
13. Using communities to (Usenet). Find a relevant forum on Google Groups, Yahoo Groups, MSN Groups or some of the thousands of other Online Group Sites to find and speak to like minded people. Made sure you use the URL to your site as your name is.
14. Using the forums. Forums are one of the strongest ways to get help. Go to the forums and find the issues you need to address. Make sure you leave your blog tag, but be tactful about it; some of the forums get irritated with anyone who selfishly drop a couple of ties to their own site and leave.
15. Mark the domain, please. Tagging is a fresh trend that has spread out around the internet. Sites like Del.icio.us, Technorati and several others have a social element that helps you to put the post under keywords or “tags” that anybody involved in the tag will see.
