@Brandonmlewin Well it was tough. Took 3 years and only since around May have I been cracking those numbers. I don't have a Twitter (yet) or Facebook so I haven't promoted it that way. I use more local methods. Telling members of my family, people I meet outside, things like that. It all helps a bit.
One thing that I'd say helps is joining other sites and participating. Chances are that they will click on your name and it will take that person to your blog. Also Dubhappy's chat is a good placeto start. It has a 5% success rating for me because it only worked once. Still since 90% of the comments in the chat room are spam it's not adviseable for many to go there.
As for Keyword Strategy do you mean if the site tells me that most people look up Superman, then I would make more Superman articles? Because if so, then yes :) Currently my top fighters include Godzilla, Lazerman, and Spiderman. So I've made sure to give them a lot of fights.
In my opinion views just come in time and with posts. As long as you keep your blog going, spread the word, and have fun then it'll happen at some point. Your title can be important. Because if it's not taken and someone googles it, yours can be the first link which would help a lot!
