    A link to your blog in your membership here would be a start. :)

    Tried a hunch, and it worked: http://kiturocks.wordpress.com/

    It would help if you had more text in your posts. Also, you aren’t using any tags. All of your posts are set to “Uncategorized”. One of the ways I get more visitors is through tags. Most of my visitors either arrive through WordPress or Technorati tags or by clicking on my name in the forums.

    Participate in other online forums that allow you to provide a website address that turns your name into a link, such as this forum. A lot of people will click it out of curiosity. However, if you don’t provide the address in your profile (such as you haven’t done here), your name won’t be a link and no one can click it.

    I see you’re not listed on Google yet. Submit your site here on the right – http://www.submitexpress.com/ Submit it to only the top 40 search engines. And also claim your blog at Technorati and place Technorati’s buttons and such on your site. And make sure to ping your blog. I ping mine at http://technorati.com/ping and http://www.pingoat.com/ And email other similar sites like yours for link exchanges on each other’s blogrolls. And to get listed on search engines, try to get your blog on at least one person’s blog that is already listed on Google. This way when they get indexed, your site will then be indexed. Or edit your profile here on the forum so it includes your site to your username on the forum when clicked.

    That’s nice. But exactly how you thought posting what you did above to this thread could actually help the original poster escapes me.

    You can examine the wordpress.com tagging pages and find other blogs like your own :) http://wordpress.com/tags/finance

    There are tons of ways to get loads of free advertising to your blog. First of all make sure you submit your feed link to all the feed directories. Let me tell you there are tons of them. You can also get a wordtracker.com account and really key in on some good keywords. This takes a little more work than the first tip but is well worth the time you invest in it. You cal also record podcasts that advertise your blog. Then submit your podcast feed link to all the podcast feed directories.

    Come hit up our blog at http://www.VictoryTrainingBlog.com to get even more tips. We even have a free 14 day blueprint to Internet Success you can download to check out.

    Our blog is only a few weeks old and we’re averaging close to 300 visits a day now using those same tactics.

    Newbies should be warned that SEO techniques will get your blog deleted here at WordPress.com.

    “Newbies should be warned that SEO techniques will get your blog deleted here at WordPress.com.”

    Please explain raincaster.

    You must be referring to the practice of blogging for the search engine bots instead of to humans.

    The idea is to always be sharing good content.

    Perhaps I put things a little strongly. Let’s look at some examples:

    Tag spamming has gotten people warned (ie using far more tags than are appropriate) and if memory serves suspended at least once. SEO games like “hit the front page of Google” have gotten blogs deleted (routinely). Viral Links also put the blog at risk for deletion.

    A discreet and relevant use of keywords won’t blow up your blog, but the Terms of Service are pretty clear if you actually read them that SEO activities are frowned on and can cause your blog to be deleted at the discretion of WP.com staff.

    Thanks raincaster and timethief. I decided to take down my own links as well. Not really into worrying about whether or not having links to my own sites categorize my blog as a splog. So to err on the side of caution I took them down.

    I may just download a template from .org and be done with it.

    But I so love how fast wp.com gets indexed by the big three.

    Links to other sites you run won’t by themselves get your blog deleted unless you put them in every post. Then it looks like the primary purpose of your blog is to drive traffic to those other sites, and that is specifically against the ToS.

    Really?
    I didn’t know that! I haven’t been using wordpress very long…

    It’s all a learning process. I just reported a blog where every single post had a link to the same online magazine, even if the magazine didn’t have anything to say on the subject; it obviously existed only to drive traffic to that magazine. But most normal uses of a blog are perfectly fine.

    Just don’t buy links. Could get you booted off Google.
