Greatest Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Blog

Given below are some Power Tips to get your blog rolling!

1.) If your blog is new, create at least three to five posts per day. People who visit will want something to read. Also, focus on keywords in your niche topic for "natural" search engine optimization.

2.) Add your blog to your My Yahoo! page. If you haven’t setup a My Yahoo yet, just go to yahoo.com and click on the My Yahoo! icon near the top right. After your setup, go to your My Yahoo page and click on the "add content" button found near the upper right. You will be presented with a form to enter your RSS link.

3.) Add your blog to your Google’s Reader. When you submit your own blog RSS to Google’s Reader the Google Blog Search will index your site. To do this, goto google.com, click on the "personalize home" or "my account" button in the upper left. After you account is setup, sign in and click on the “add content” button in the upper left of your page.

4.) Add a link directory to your blog and trade links with sites that share a similar niche. At this point, you want to trade links mainly to get direct traffic. In the long term, this will help with your rankings in the search engines as well. Use software such as seo elite to speed up your link trading and optimize you blog for the search engines.

5.) Use ping, Ping your site every time you add a new post. Check to see if your blog software is already doing this. Wordpress and B2Evolution do this automatically and is a real time saver.

6.) Submit your blog to conventional search engines such as Google, AltaVista, and MSN.

7.) Submit your blog to traditional directories such as DMOZ Directories (particularly DMOZ) increase relevance with Google. DMOZ is very picky and can sometimes take months to get listed.

8.) Submit to as many RSS Directories as possible. This is a simple but repetitive process that can be done automatically with software.

9.) Comment on other blogs and forums. Do not just leave short, lazy comments. Try to really answer questions or give opinions on subjects you know.

10.) Use track backs. If there is a blog that you refer to or quote and it is highly relevant to your subject, leave a track back. It increases your link reputation and may even score a few interested readers from the linked site.
