How to Increase Your Blog Traffic

If you have a blog you are probably interested in increasing the traffic to the blog. It only makes sense, why take the time to write out a blog post if no one is going to read it?

Anyway, I have found six simple methods that will show you exactly how you can increase your blog traffic. The six methods are simple yet effective.

Method # 1 : use a pinging service

Ping-o-Matic is a great resource to use to drive traffic to your blog. Basically, Ping-o-Matic is a service that will ping with other services to let them know that you have posted on your blog. You can find a service at pingomatic.com

Method # 2: Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking lets people bookmark their favorite posts and basically spread the word. Social bookmarking has become broadly popular and is becoming a better way to drive traffic everyday. A few examples of social bookmarking sites would be Digg.com, reddit or del.icio.us.

Method # 3: Comment on Other Blogs

Commenting on relevant blogs is a great way to drive traffic to your blog. However, you must make sure that you are actually commenting on what the poster has posted and not spamming their blog. Too many times I see people take the strategy and abuse it. As long as you are posting thoughtful and meaningful replies you are not taking advantage of this, you're actually providing real value.

Method # 4 : Quality Keyword Rich Content

I am sure you've heard the saying content is keen over and over again. Well, the reason is because it is so true. Search engines love original content and are looking to provide the searcher with what they're looking for. So it is only natural to say that if you provide good content, that is laced with keywords that the individuals looking for you should do well. Now, you must understand that good content alone does not guarantee good search engine results, but it is a darn good start.

Method # 5: Google Reader

Submitting your blog's RSS feed to Google reader is a great way to heat your blog to read and indexed.

Method # 6: Writing Articles

Writing keyword rich articles is always a great way to increase your blog traffic. All you need to do is research some long tail keywords and write a few good articles and you will see the traffic start poring in.

With all things it takes action. If you do not take action on what you've read today nothing will happen. Do not let that happen you. Make the most of every day you have and take action to move closer to your goals.
