How can I get traffic on my blog?

    One thing I found that’s helped me with my fledgling blog is to connect it with twitter and facebook, so that when I make a post, it automatically tweets and the tweet goes right to my facebook status. It makes my friends curious enough to check my latest post out. Shameless, but I *think* they’re genuinely interested in my blurbs. :)

    That comment has nothing to do with the topic in this thread which is increasing the organic (unpaid) flow if traffic to blogs. I don’t understand why you posted it.

    I’m puzzled. That comment has nothing to do with the topic in the thread which is increasing organic (unpaid) traffic to blogs.

    I agree with those that said its good and relevant content that matters most for your target audience. You might find a quick way to generate a huge amount of hits for a short time to your blog, but if the content is not timeless or relevant to your target audience that effort is pretty much in vain.

    Concerning commenting, great content in most cases will automatically generate content from your visitors time and time again. The bonus here too SEOwise is that Search engines crave a great blogroll with good comments that don’t involve shameless plugs, and a little secret most new bloggers don’t know is that the relevant comments add uniqueness to your blog posts.

    The reason thats good is that: great post often get scraped or duplicated by other websites, but Google and Yahoo will still rank you the original author higher when they see many relevant comments on your blog post.

    A previous poster directed traffic seekers to search the forum for previous answers, but I’ll give them a head start. Something we forget to mention for those craving traffic is to remember known facts about Google search engine.

    1. You get traffic based on the Age of Your site (new start promoting much)
    2. The amount of RELEVANT and high ranked linkbacks to your site from other sites of similar theme and topic.
    3. Google loves relevant non-spammy comments on your blog or site, it gives your content uniqueness.

    There are more but these are at the top of the list.

    Sorry – I am not a GoStats expert. It started working for me straight away – perhaps you may possibly have missed something when creating your account? If you continue having difficulty, there is a contact page on the GoStats site:

    You have linked your twitter account to your username. That’s not helpful. We
    For goodness sake – stop, take a deep breath and post the complete and clickable URL for the blog to which you refer starting with http://

    Posting an email address on a forum like this simply invites email address harvesting spam bots to be on it like fleas on a dog. Please read this http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2007/10/18/eluding-email-address-spam-bots/

    One way that seems to work that ‘timethief’ uses is to reply to questions on the forums, this appears to drive traffic to a blog. Asking questions also seems to get things moving.

    If you are a blogging tips blogger, answering questions on blogging forums can bring in traffic to your blog. However, that traffic will be targeted traffic so you better have what the readers are looking for when they do click into your blog. If readers do arrive on your blog, and cannot locate an archive of useful and easily accessed articles that inflow can quickly translate into a high bounce rate.

    Yes, although the idea still is a good one, with a bit of nudging. Assuming that you do have good articles on the topic your blog is about, join a community that is interested in what your blog is about. Not only will you get traffic, but you will also make friends.

    Joining social networks in your niche can increase a flow of organic (unpaid) traffic. However, time management is key to effective social networking. Forums, online groups, social networks, and social media sites can also become enormous time sucks that do not produce enough traffic to justify the time spent on them. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2009/01/08/social-media-time-management-strategy/

    TT has been answering questions at WP.com for something close to five years now. She makes blog posts in part so that she can have prefab, exact and accurate answers to questions in the forum. We see many people who TRY this, but if they aren’t up to that standard, their links get deleted or pointed out as erroneous.
