All bloggers want that their articles reach more people and to be known in search engines.
It's essential for the life of a blog because without readers the blogs die.

There is no point having the best articles in the world if nobody read your blog or web site.

If you are an expert on some topic or you know how to do something, then you can publish a tutorial in different parts.

In this way your readers will return to read the next parts of it.


TIP 11 - PROMOTE YOUR BLOG IN FORUMS

Doing this it's very probable that their readers will also visit your blog.


TIP 14 - USE RSS IN YOUR BLOG

Provide to your readers an easy reading of your blog giving them an RSS subscription.
Thank to this, they can read your blog with their RSS software or recive the latest news in their email.

You can do it with Feedburner for example.


TIP 15 - MAKE YOUR OWN PODCASTS

You can attract new audience with podcasts. Many people prefer to listen rather than read so record to yourself reading and explaining your best posts or make new content.







TIP 16 - FOLLOW HOT TOPICS

Subcribe to feeds of your own niche and when you read hot news, interesting things, scandalous or shocking stuff, go to be the first to write a post about it. You can watch TV or listen to the radio to know what is the topic that it's on the top.

TIP 19 - ADD A FORUM TO YOUR BLOG

The forums can give you many returning visitors to your blog but you have to moderate it the 7 days of the week. This can be much work.

The most effective way is to add one to a site that is already popular.


TIP 20 - WRITE A EBOOK

You can write a ebook just combining posts of your blog and ask to websites authors if they can give it free to their readers.


TIP 21 - EBOOK DIRECTORIES

Search in google for "ebook directory" or "ebook directories" and put your your ebook in all the sites that you can!


TIP 22 - PROMOTE TOOLS

Promote useful tools for webmasters or bloggers and tell them the tool that you discovered will make him life easier. If they like it, they will link to your article.


TIP 23 - MAKE LINK BAIT

Link bait it's quality or controversial content in your blog that other bloggers will link in their blogs voluntarily.
Write that kind of articles and websites will love your blog.

Search in Google for "link bait" to see examples.


TIP 24 - BE AN EXPERT

If you are an expert in a topic, write about it!

Be an expert it's harder than work in a small and anonymous blog but if you becomes an authority in your field, the traffic will come alone and people will link to you without ask them.

People will want to interview you and that will give you more publicity.

Put your Photo in your blog and write a few words about you. Doing this, people will recognize you.


TIP 25 - USE YAHOO! ANSWERS

In Yahoo! Answers people offer free answers to other users that need help with something.

Find questions about the niche of your blog and answer them putting a link to your blog or your post related to the question.

It's easy and it will give you extra traffic.


TIP 26 - COMMENT IN OTHER BLOGS

Search for big blogs of your same niche and comment in their posts.
Make useful comments. Writting something like "Good article!" just to put the link of your blog doesn't say good things about you.


TIP 27 - STICKY CONTENT

Sticky content makes to a user come back to your site. This method is used to build a community of regular visitors.

Forums, chats, games and news are examples of contents of this type.

Finds items that could be attractive to your readers and deploy it on your site. You will see how returning visitors will come back every day.


TIP 28 - SOCIAL NETWORKING

Sites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace recive millions of visits each month.

You must be present in the social networks. In my case, the vast majority of my blog traffic comes from Facebook and Twitter.

So, don't wait more, make a profile on Facebook and Twitter now!

Build a big community of friends with the same niche that yours and start to promote your articles. Post your articles in your wall and send messages to your friends talking about the interesting post that you have already wrote.


TIP 29 - PPC ADVERTISING

Create pages or special mini-sites without distractions. 
You need to focus the attention of visitors in the affiliate product link or in the form to receive the newsletter or mini-course.

If your blog or website gives you enough income, you can create an Google Adwords campaign and redirect all that paid traffic to a product that will generate direct sales.


TIP 30 - BUY ADS IN NEWSLETTERS

You can buy ads in newsletters with thousands of readers but you need to capture the reader's attention. An generic ad will not work.

Instead of announcing your site, send the people to a page where you offer a free report or mini-course in exchange for their e-mail.

Then you can send them newsletters announcing that wonderful product that will make their life easier.


TIP 31 - PUT YOUR SIGNATURE IN YOUR EMAIL

It's something that many people forget and it is very important to do.
As a blogger, I am sure that you try many ways to get traffic, and for some of these ways, you need your email adress. With time you will have many contacts and send and read several emails every day.

Add your signature to the bottom of your emails so people can know who sent the email and can view your blog or website.


TIP 32 - THINK ON VIRAL

Write a ebook and split it on two parts. Then offer for free the Volume 1 and put a link with a descount coupon for the Volumen 2 wich will not be free.


TIP 33 - PUT A GOAL FOR YOU

Take the goal of doubling the traffic of your website or blog. Get 2 months or however long you want and work each week on a way to generate traffic.


I hope these tips help you to improve your blog and get more traffic.

I was just searching for this info for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the Google’s issue that doesn’t rank this type of informative websites closer to the top. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.

Yeah. Is supposed that Google Panda would solve that but I don't see many changes.

Maybe with time. Meanwhile we have to keep the hard work to be in the first page of Google.

You have a great blog. I enjoyed it!.
