Get Blog Traffic

Updated on January 8, 2014

Drive Blog Traffic Using Pinterest

Pinterest

A good way to drive traffic to a blog is by using pictures. People are interested in visuals. Use this to advantage by adding a link to a blog from Pinterest.

Traffic to Your Blog

You've started your blog and now want to get traffic to it. So, how do you increase traffic to blog traffic?

Ping

One method is to ping it. This alerts the search engines that you have updated. A good pinging service to use is Ping-o-Matic. To use Ping-o-Matic add your blog's name, URL, and RSS feed URL into the information spaces. The last addition is optional, but a good idea. This ping service pings 23 services and an additional 5 services, if your blog fits well with them.

Blogroll

Using a blog roll will encourage other bloggers to reciprocate by adding your blog to their blog roll. When you find ones you like add them. Their readers may click over to your blog, when they see your link.

Links

Small sites or blogs that post articles and information related to your blog's topic are good sites to link to, and they are more likely to link back. They are trying hard to build more traffic, and they are very concerned with their traffic stats. Ask if the blogger wants to exchange links. Check back later to see he/she linked to your blog and thank them.

You can join LinkShare for free and find related sites to link to, plus they will notify you when someone has a link request for you. Sometimes people make a link request and their site's topic is eons away from your blogs topic. But you get some related requests too. Accept the good ones and reject the others. Place an offer to exchange links in the links portion of your blog.

Search Engines

Submit your blog to search engines. You can submit your blog to search engines with Submit Express for free and it will submit your blog to Google, Yahoo, and numerous meta search engines. Meta search engines aren't web crawlers; when a search is done through them, they send searches to multiple search engines instantly. They compile the results for you on one or more pages.

If you know someone that has a site that is ranked high in Google and your friend links to your blog this will help to get your site indexed in Goggle's directory.

Meta Search Engines

These are some of the meta search engines: Dogpile, Mamma, SurfWax, and Fazzle.

Blog Directories

Add the blog to a lot of blog directories and socialize at these sites.

Post

Post frequently to your blog. This keeps readers coming for more and it attracts search engine spiders, which will index your site often. If you get 7000 views each month from one search engine and 1% become regular readers, you have 70 new returning followers from submitting your blog on one particular month. The rule is to submit your blog once a month. Submitting more than that is called spamming and you can get banned by search engines.
