    It takes a lot of work and dedication to make a blog successful. But most blogs will never be THAT successful. You have to do it because you like doing it and not for the traffic and fame.

    Most people do not leave comments. Many just read.

    If you have a WordPress.COM blog, link your site url starting with http on your profile so your name is clickable on the forum here and other WordPress.com blogs.

    Go to other similiar type blogs and forums with a link back to your blog on your username.

    Use good tags or categories, no more than 12, and they will be seen on the global tag page by others visiting the same topic.

    Reply to every comment if you can. That makes them come back to read what you and others have written.

    Have the Recent Comments, Recent Posts, and Top Posts widgets on your sidebar because people are nosy and want to read what others are saying.

    Have the Search bar widget on your blog because people will leave if they can’t find what they are looking for.

    Your blog looks cute, but maybe add some “tags” so people can find it?
    Also comments on other blogs might help :)

    I am trying to claim my blog from Technorati so it will help get more traffic to my blog. In order to do that they have requested that put a key name in the template. How can I do that?

    I am a blogging tips blogger with 3 years of wordpress experience. I also have tumblr and blogspot blogs but the blog linked to my user name here is primarily aimed at wordpress users. It does contain posts on the topic of blog promotion.

    (1) Don’t play hide and seek with search engines. WordPress.com makes search engine verification easy. The easy to follow step by step instructions for registering and verufying your blog with Google, Yahoo and Bing can be found in the WordPress.com Support Documentation at the Webmaster Tools link.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

    (2) Search engine optimization, is the strategy and process of increasing the amount of visitors to a site by making structural changes to the site and the content in it that result in the site ranking high in search engine results. The higher a site ranks in the results of a search, the greater the chance that that site will be visited by a user who has been using a search engine to locate material of interest to them.

    (4) There is no such thing as “passive” blog promotion. You must be prepared to use social media like twitter and friendfeed and also to join social networks, online groups and forums if you wish to establish a readership and encourage growth. The best place to post a blog description on your blog is on your About page, as it is meant to contain a brief biography (profile) and a blog description, including your blogging goal(s) and tags for the blog. But this is not the only place you will use that information. You will also post it on the profile pages of the social networks, forums, and online groups you join.

    You will be confused and never understand until you read the information people have given you.

    Specifically:

    If you have a WordPress.COM blog, link your site url starting with http on your profile so your name is clickable on the forum here and other WordPress.com blogs.

    All the many questions you have “answered” (many incorrectly) in the last hour or two have been in vain. You are essentially spamming the forum. But no one will even look at your blog because you have not even provided a link. Common sense?
