Best Ways to Increase Blog Traffic

The most important thing to a blogger is increasing the traffic to their blog and getting followers.  Sometimes this seems like an impossible task.  Days, weeks and even months go by without one visit to your blog.  To effectively increase traffic to your blog takes a lot of dedication and patience.  Here are some ways to help you start to increase traffic to your blog.

  1. Post often.  A daily post would be great however this is not possible for many of us.  Therefore, a good meaningful post 3 times a week should be adequate.
  2. Add your blog link to other blog rolls.  Many blog owners would very happily exchange links or buttons with you.
  3. Leave meaningful comments with a link to your blog on other blogs that are on the same subject as your blog. 
  4. Submit your posts to Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Technorati, and Delicious.
  5. Invite someone to be a guest blogger and better yet you could be a guest blogger on another site.
  6. Add your blog to directories.
  7. Respond to comments on your blog.  Doing so will show your readers that you're interested and actively participate.
  8. Submit your site to search engines such as Google and Yahoo.
  9. Nominate yourself for a blog award.
  10. Participate in daily blog hops.
  11. Join networking clubs such as mombloggersclub, bloggymoms and twittermoms.
  12. Tweet and add a Facebook post when new blog posts are up.
