To have a profit you need traffic, and it shouldn’t be hard to get traffic to your blog. Below are some things you can try.
Daily Posting- Daily posting on you blog can help. New content attracts search engine spiders to your blog. Take the time and make sure you do this.
Links- Put a link to your blog in your email signature. Also, add your link whenever you comment on someone else’s blog. You can also write articles and link them to your blog. Many article directories are free to use so this is great for a tight budget. If you have an account with a social network like Facebook, you can add your link on your personal page. This is free, but you can also pay for advertisements there as well.
Submit- You can submit your blog to traditional search engines as well as blog directories.
Print- Put your link on your business cards as well as flyers and brochures. If you do a newsletter, make sure your link is put on every page.
Feeds- Set up a feed on MyYahoo.com so that your site is regularly spidered by Yahoo. You can also make sure you have a RSS feed url that people can subscribe to. This is a document type that lists updates of websites or blogs available for syndication.
These are just some methods that you can use to get traffic to your blog. There are many, many more. Some of them will involve tools, some are also free. The best advice I can possibly give is to ask other internet marketers how to get traffic to your blog. Doing this can turn up some great methods that you might not have thought of, or didn’t know how to do. There is nothing better than knowing that someone else has made it work, and might consider helping you understand anything you are not clear on.
