    How do i make more people read my blogpost?

    The blog I need help with is subhabratadasgupta.wordpress.com.

  2. You could pay them.

    Otherwise, you have to convince them it's interesting. Do a search of the forum for tips; there are a couple of thousand tips here already on increasing readership.

    Getting More Views and Traffic

    Here are 25 basic steps to take to increase traffic to your blog:
    1. Structure a reader and search engine blog;
    2. In blogging content is king create unique, high quality content so publish fresh content frequently;
    3. Learn basic SEO so you can use keywords effectively and apply basic SEO to your headlines, blog and posts;
    Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results.
    4. Make your blog posts look professional;
    5. Create at least 4-6 pillar posts and continue to create pillar posts;
    Pillar posts are also referred to as flagship content. Pillar posts are comprehensive posts that offer great value to readers as the contents are timeless in nature. They define you as having authority in the niche you blog in.
    6. Select and link to appropriate anchor text;
    7. Leave meaningful comments on related blogs and encourage comments on your own blog;
    8. Develop relationships with other bloggers so you can build a blog readers’ community around your own blog;
    9. Support the blog centered communities on related blogs by commenting on them and promoting posts from them;
    10. Link to authoritative sources in your posts;
    11. Deep link to your earlier related posts in your new posts;
    12. Assign appropriate categories and tag your posts with care;
    13. Link to related authoritative blogs in your blogroll;
    14. Provide RSS feeds for subscribers;
    RSS (Rich Site Summary or really simple syndication) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.
    15. Having a well designed theme is important, evaluate your theme for effectiveness, and if required, create a new header, make improvements or replace your theme and reduce page loading time;
    16. Avoid cluttering your blog with widgets that lack reader value and slow page loading time;
    17. Buy your own domain and domain mapping;
    18. Verify your blog with the three big search engines.
    19. Get organized, use an online to do list by developing a blogging workflow;
    20. Join social networks and social media sites like Facebook and use Twitter, Friendfeed and other Free RSS directories to promote your blog posts;
    21. Promote your blog through social networks, online groups, and selected directories;
    22. Develop a social media time management strategy and stick to it;
    23. Submit your latest pillar article to a blog carnival;
    24. Become a guest blogger on sites with higher page rank than your own site.
    25. Create newsletters and/or ebooks for your subscribers.

    Do note that if you have been told "build it and they will come" that's nonsense. There is no such thing as passive blog promotion. It's up to the blogger to learn how to structure a reader and search engine friendly blog, publish interesting fresh content frequently, and promote every post they publish throughout social networks.

    I think what your blog and every other blog needs is a skilled and savvy blogger and targeted readers. Targeted readers are those who arrive on your site because they already have an interest in the content your posts and blog contain. They have typed keywords and phrases into search engines and located your posts in the SERPS (search engine page results) and clicked through. The fact that targeted readers already have an interest in the content in your posts means they are likely to read more than one post, more likely to leave comments, and more likely to become regular readers/subscribers.

    Consequently, the first step for any blogger to take to establish a flow of targeted readers to their blog is learning and applying the use of basic SEO elements, and relevant categories and tags, so their posts and blog are actually accessible to potential readers, who use search engines to locate content on subjects of interest to them. http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2009/08/04/basic-seo-elements-for-bloggers/

  4. Like raincoast said, pay them. It's a very useful technique.

  5. I've been on your blog. You should definitely make it look nice for the readers with well written posts and customed design that makes your blog different from the others, a blog that reflex your personality if you want.

    @wearpositive, thanks for that laugh. i needed it.
    @timethief, you must have nuclear toothpaste or something. i don't know how you find time to do all those things. :) hugs though.
    i am trying to follow as much of your advice as I possibly can.

    (I have soo many widgets, but i need to put my art over there so i can feed myself somehow. ..)

  7. By the way, what's a blog carnival? (such good advice you have really!)

  8. oh, sweet! thanks!

  9. Wow! You could just stay all day trying to find your niche, couldn't you? This is great!

  10. Is this one of those we should avoid because submitting here will backfire and get us fewer views?

  11. Blog carnivals are passe. I don't think they do much for you.

    The best way to draw people to your blog is to write relevant and unique content and do it consistently. The longer you do it the more opportunity people have to find your blog, read it, and ultimately follow it.

    Don't give up. Just keep writing and keep blogging. Good luck! :)

  13. Mine's certainly unique. :) And overly consistent, some might suggest!
