  3. Also from what I see on your blog, you've just started blogging. I know for me in the beginning I received very little hits and it took about six months to start gaining real readership.

    It can take 4 - 6 weeks until your blog content in indexed and shows up in search engine page results.

    (1) Confirm that your blog visibility setting is "public" and can be accessed by search engine spiders;
    (2) Verify your blog ownership with the major search engines;
    (3) Write well and publish regularly. Keeping your blog updated with fresh and informative content will maintain reader interest. Publish fresh content frequently and be sure you assign a minimal number of relevant tags and categories to your posts without exceeding a combined total of 10 categories and tags on any given post;

    (4) Use keywords in your post titles, subtitles and in the natural flow of the text so they will be picked up by the search spiders;
    (5) Comment, comment, comment and comment on similar blogs;
    (6) The most effective way of promoting a blog within the WordPress.com community is to seek out other blogs in the same niche and form blog centered relationships with bloggers who share the same blogging interests. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/07/13/wordpress-com-in-house-blog-promotion/

  5. When you post more frequently, and comment on other blogs then you get more traffic.

  6. Okaay, thankyou everyone who has commented and helped me-i owe you. well, lets hope in a few weeks, my blog will be great!
    Thanks, J.X

  7. Another suggestion is to make sure you have your publicize to facebook: ON. That way it will allow all of you facebook friends to see when and what you post through a link on their newsfeed. A good way to immerse friends into your blogging experience almost accidentally.

    You're welcome from me. :) The bottom line here is that "build it and they will come" does NOT apply to blogs.

  11. Also, use your correct URL. There is no "www" in your URL.

    AND think more positively. My heart sinks when I see a "my site gets no hits I want to die, why doesn't anyone love me" thread. How about asking "How do I increase my hits" instead? Or, better yet, search the forum for tips, because there are a thousand or two already here and you can just go ahead and use them all right away.

  12. Your background red is abit bright for the eyes to read.

    Choose a calmer colour so that people won't leave.

  13. Try Pingomatic.com because it worked so well for me.

  14. That isn't going to help. All wordpress.com blogs automatically ping Pingomatic every time they're updated.

  15. Im agreeing about the background color. Red may not be the best choice. Colors affect peoples moods and red tends to make people feel edgy or stressed out. (even though it is the color of flowers and fire)
