I started a blog, how to I get traffic to it?
I already have around 30 posts and a lot of friends think it's hilarious. I just want to spread the word on it.
share your links on your favorite social networking sites. Myspace, facebook, twitter; etc. I'm getting a lot of traffic from reddit.com. . . but those folks can be brutal, and they almost never leave comments. Your friends on networking sites will leave comments-but you won't get nearly as much traffic there.
1. Participate in social bookmarking sites.
2. Comment reqularly on relevant blogs.
3. Tweet it, Share on facebook.
4. Submit your posts to news recommendation services like http://snifd.com
Write for search engines with rich long-tail keywords, do the essential seo for the site, build a sitemap and submit to search engines. Get one, two high quality backlinks and pray for the free search engine traffic.
Register your blog with Stumbleupon and Technorati. Stumbleupon will get you lots of visitors, but not a lot of comments, and hardly any ad clicks. Technorati will get you more comments.
Plus, a lot of bloggers give stuff away to get comments. They will post on Twitter that they are giving away something, and to register, you only have to comment on that post. Gets a lot of traffic and a short term Google boost.
include your blog link in your forum signatures and email signatures.
Relevant comments where ever comments are allowed.
Link your blog feed to twitter account.
social networking sites might be useful.
Join in social network and forum site, and share your link on it. Add more following and post unique content on you blog.
Do you have favorite blogs? I comment regularly to a few great blogs and they responded by doing the same to mine. Commenting to other blogs also invites THEIR readers to browse your blog (try to leave interesting, quirky, or funny comments and you'll gain some new traffic and hopefully regular readers!)
Guest post on other blogs, comment on other blogs, hook your blog up to Twitter and pump your Twitter account to get more followers. Create a Facebook Fan page and ask your friends to join. Put the FB box on your blog.
Those things have worked the best for me.
I will link you to the same question, ok? ;-)

What social media/social networking sites do you use?Do you write on pages other than Hubpages? What sites are you currently active in and how do you prioritize them? Do you prefer some to others? I am currently active in Blogger, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter.

I am starting to learn how to social bookmark. I've been doing it on twitter, facebook, igoogle, digg, delicious, diigo, my blogs, pingomatic and a few other places. I have only been doing it on some of these sites for the last four or five days. It probably takes a while to see...

I'm relatively new to Hubpages, and so far I've published three articles. However, the view numbers are pretty small, and I'd like to increase them. I'm currently writing some more Hubs right now, but any tips that you'd like to share, I'd really appreciate them

How many people actually submit their links to social bookmarking and/or networking sites. If you do, do you actually see any results. So far I have gotten very little results from these sites. Any tips, suggestions, or ideas?
