    Don't look at me!
    Ha ha j/k

    I'm actually pleased that I have a place to post my thoughts and personal video before I die. There's no hurry to get hits. I intend to be dead a long time.

    Ping =^.^=

  3. Thank you, all. Finally! My views hit 35 . . . . once I use these things and information you all gave me, and my views hit at least 100 a week, this topic will be closed.

    Not yet though.

  5. More tips for you.

    I noticed that your posts are tagged with only "Creator News, Invasion, Series." One of the great things about WordPress, is their tag referrals. If you tag your posts more aggressively than you are, you will benefit from visitors who browse the tags here.

    You could for example, tag your post with an assortment of different terms that might get you more traffic. I've given some ideas below, but check the tags page at WordPress for more ideas.

    Tag Ideas:

    moviemaking, video creation, art, entertainment, video culture, hobbies...

    If no one <I>knows</I> to look for the terms "creator news" or "invasion" then they won't find you. It's like if you have a store at the mall and you choose for your signage and window displays, black paint. Then, in the mall directory, you also choose not to let people know what your store is about. It's likely people will never see what's inside your store.

    Try some additional tags and see if you don't get a few new visitors. Remember too, that the first paragraph of your post is what a snippet of will be shown anywhere a search turns up your post as a result, so try make that first few lines inviting!

    Again.. good luck!

  6. Wow, fracas. Thanks. I definately like that idea. How many tags do you think I should have on each post?

    This topic might just close soon!

    *whispers* (BTW, since the topic is closing soon, go to my site and be members, so I can talk to you guys still later. . . .)

  7. We talked about how many tags to use a while back, in this thread:

    The suggested maximum was 15, otherwise it might cause problems showing up on the tag referral pages. You don't have to use that many though. If you had (for example) sex really well chosen ones, that might do the trick. It just depends what your post is about, and where it will fit.

    To have the option for your post to appear on the main WordPress News page, you have to have tagged it with one of the main categories.

    Those are:

    Politics, Science, Entertainment, Sports, Health, Family, Travel, Food, How To, Technology, religion, Business, Cars,

    Keep on at it!

  8. LOL. I see a typo there. I guess my own blog has gotten to me. I believe that number that comes after five is actually six, not sex... though there are people who might argue the point.


  9. And the total number of tags and categories together on each post should not be more than twelve. That's the number staff have said.

  10. fracas: I liked the typo . . .

    Anyway, so. I finally reached 54 viewers!!!! that left and never came back. So, new question: How do you get them to stick?

  11. will you can tell more people about you're wordpress you know

  12. >>>And the total number of tags and categories together on each post should not be more than twelve. That's the number staff have said.

    I didn't know that. I have never had that many Categories in a post, anyway. And I never use tags at all.

    At the original subject poster: If you are doing an original video series, send emails to blogs that cover that sort of thing and see if they will do a post or a link.

  13. mikecane . . . genious. Too bad I didn't think of that . . . .

    bubi079: Do you know me, or something? Because, my friend on myspace's name is exactly that....

  14. I have my blog up and running for 2 weeks now and I am happy with the hits that I have although I would be happy if I have more hits. As of today I got 958 hits it is not a lot though but it is a good start. this is what I did, I joined all the forums that I can that will be my target audience, I posted comments in that forums and open new threads then redirected them to my blog. I have a friendster account and whenever I have new blog I posted it on the bulletin that I have an interesting post in my blog. I also joined blogcatalog and fuel blog. One thing that really works is tagging, I use tag a lot and it really works.

  15. Just to confirm (idiot alert!) that is 12 tags + categorries per post right???????/

    So 6 tags, means you cant have more than 6 cats..

    11 tags, means only 1 cat and so on right???

  16. That would be correct.

  17. Thanks thesacredpath!! Better to be safe than sorry hehe

  18. TO ALL: Why the hell are we talking like idiots? I mean, I have done everything here . . . and my views DROPPED . . . significantly.

    I have had 0 visitors for the past week.

    What happened? And please, if you go to the site, watch the vids. Don't just look. Leave a comment. Go there everyday. Something? Tell friends . . . . ?
