How to Get Traffic to a New Blog?

| |
Boost Web Traffic
Many of newbie bloggers or even the people who started to blogging a while ago quit blogging just because they don’t see any traffic from their blogs. The blogosphere is a big and busy world with over 100 million blogs and growing. How do you attract visitors to your blog? Follow these simple tips to drive traffic to your blog.





How the blogger boost the traffic to a new Blog?


1)    Catchy Title and Niche Content

Post Title
Simply follow the rule (Write well and write often). Start posting useful and interesting posts and consider that your post should have a catchy title to make the visitor start reading your post and consider the niche content to make the visitor keep reading it.
Second thing here is to frequently and always update your blog with useful and interesting content because this is the first step of boosting the traffic. Cause be sure that the visitor will come back for more if you do that.
Furthermore, posting frequently would increase the number of chances you have for your blog’s content to be noticed by search engine
 

2)    Blog Comments

When we are talking about Blogs, then we are talking about commentsCommenting is a simple and essential tool to increase your blog's traffic.
I would write a post about the importance and some tips regarding blog comments but for now just follow these tips:
  • Respond to comments on your blog to show the readers that you care and you value their opinions and make it like a two-way conversation and that will increase the reader loyalty.
  • Leave comments on others blog to drive new traffic. And make sure that it’s a valuable comment and don’t spam others blogs by leaving one liner comments.
  • Leave your blog URL in your comment to create a back link to your blog. If your comment was interesting and meaningful the other blog commenter’s will most likely visit your blog.
  • Comment on the top blogs in your niche and try to be in the first 5 commenter.Subscribe to their RSS Feeds to get the posts once they post it and then comment on their posts. Comment on the blogs of your nicheYou can get the top blogs in your niche if you search in Google for (“Your niche+Blogs”) Ex. Blogging +Blogs

3)    RSS Feed

RSS Feed
As we mentioned before to subscribe to others feed in the blogs of your niche, have to set up an RSS   feed button on your blog makes it easy for your loyal readers to not just read your blog but also know when you publish new content and that leads them back to your blog.
 


4)    Spend time on writing detailed articles.

You think that you are going to bring quality traffic without much effort?
I think it’s time to quit thinking that way. You need to be unique and be different from the others to become successful and to survive in the blogosphere. I know it takes time to create some quality content but believe me it worth it. Don’t spend your whole time posting normal or average 600 words  posts. Try to spend some more time to create great content and write detailed posts with 1000+ words once in an awhile. If you are a part time blogger then just try at least to write 1000+ words post once a month. This kind of posts will bring quality traffic to your blog.
 

5)    Blogroll

Use and update your blogroll by adding links to sites you like in it, the owners of those blogs will find your blog and will be likely to add a reciprocal link in their blogrolls. It's an easy way to get the link to your blog in front of many readers on other blogs. The hope is that some of those readers will click on the link to your blog on the other blogs' blogrolls and find your content interesting and enjoyable turning them into loyal readers.
 

6)    Network with others

Social Networks
The magic word for boosting the traffic is NETWORK. The more and the large networks the blogger got the more traffic they would have.
We will write detailed articles about social bookmarking, social networks and social media web sites to help you get traffic to your web site but for now start singing up for those and take time to submit your best posts to social bookmarking sites such as Digg,StumbleUponReddit and more cause this is the simple way to quickly boost traffic to your blog.
And of course make an account on Facebook and twitter. It’s easy to follow and let others follow you and so easy to spread a word. These Social Networks consider one of the most important ways to boost the traffic so it’s time to start BEING SOCIAL. J
 
Facebook: Join in Groups... Promote yourself out there... Facebook will get you a huge traffic with less effort. You may find it difficult in the beginning but when you start promoting others content and   when you get to know each other on Facebook, it becomes very easy!
 
Twitter: Follow top bloggers in your niche and follow their followers. This is the simple yet effective way of increasing your targeted twitter followers. Once you have done this, you can tweet your new articles and ask your followers to retweet it.
Always try to retweet and promote your fellow bloggers before asking them to promote your content. This can make others to promote your content sooner or later and you will have high chances of getting their attention if they find it useful. 
 

7)    Video Marketing:

Video Marketing
Create shot length videos and add your blog link at the starting
Submit them to YouTube, metacafe etc. We will write a detailed article about video marketing cause it's extremely important and very powerful way to boost the traffic to any website.







8)    Remember Search Engine Optimization

SEO
Don’t forget SEO, when you write your blog posts and pages, remember to optimize your pages for search engines to find them. Most people say forget about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) when you’re just starting out. I think that’s the dumbest suggestion!
You need to include relevant keywords and links, and do proper keyword analysis before you’re writing the articles. Then embed them into your posts. But don't overload your posts with too many relevant keywords or completely irrelevant keywords. Doing so can be considered spamming and could have negative results such as your blog being removed from Google's search entirely. It’s extremely important to bring organic (search engine) traffic to your blog. Because it’s free and highly effective!
If you’re a beginner then this is enough! Don’t go beyond, you’ll better understand about SEO when you’re spending more time on blogging.
 

9)    Use Links and Trackbacks

Linking
Links are one of the most powerful parts of your blog. Not only are links noticed by search engines, but they also act as a tap on the shoulder to other bloggers who can easily identify who is linking to their sites. Linking helps to get you noticed by other bloggers who are likely to investigate the sites that are linking to them. This may lead them to become new readers of your blog or to add links to your blog from theirs.
You can take links to other blogs a step further by leaving a trackback on the other blog to let them know you've linked to them. Blogs that allow trackbacks will include a link back to your blog in the comments section of the post that you originally linked to. People do click on trackback links!

10) Tag Your Posts

It takes a few extra seconds to add tags to each of your blog posts, but it's worth the time in terms of the additional traffic tags can drive to your blog. Tags (like links) are easily noticed by search engines. They're also a key to helping readers find your blog when they perform searches on popular blog search engines such as Technorati.

11) Don't Forget Images

Images don't just make your blog look pretty; they also help people find you in search engine listings. People often use the image search options offered by Google, Yahoo! and other search engines, and naming your images with search engine optimization in mind can easily boost your traffic.

12) Consider Guest Blogging

Guest blogging can be done when you write a guest post on another blogger's blog or when another blogger writes a guest post on your blog. Both methods are likely to increase traffic as your blog will be exposed to the other blogger's audience. Many of the other blogger's readers will visit your blog to see what you have to say. But I would recommend this way when you have an online reputation  Major reason is without having any online reputation you can’t cope up with other bloggers to get accepted your guest posts. When they reject you, you’ll feel down to submit another guest post to them.


13) Promote Outside Your Blog

Promoting your blog shouldn't stop when you step outside the blogosphere. Add your blog's URL to your email signature and business cards. Talk about it in offline conversations. It's important to get your name and your blog's URL noticed offline, too.

14) Nominate Yourself and Other Blogs for Blog Awards

There are a number of blog awards given out throughout the year. Nominating yourself and other blogs and bloggers can draw attention to your blog and drive traffic to it.

15) Don't Be Shy

The most important part of the blogosphere is its community and much of your success as a blogger will be tied to your willingness to network with that community. Don't be afraid to ask questions, join conversations or just say hi and introduce yourself. Don't sit back and hope the
