My Instructions for Getting Traffic

First you need to make sure you have comments allowed in your blog settings. Allowing comments and making comments on other blogs is the first step in getting your url out there and finding other bloggers that have similar interests to you.

Second, you need to list your blog with the big search engines...go to google and/or Yahoo and any other one you want to use and do a search for the terms "submit url". You will get directions from them on how to do that for their services and that is the first step to getting traffic. The search engines will not crawl your site for ages otherwise, and even with the submission it takes some time.

Then, you need to start putting links to other sites/blogs on your site and hope that they reciprocate because the more you are linked the better your traffic will become and the better your page ranking with the search engines will become. You can become a member of blogging communities (there are many out there) as well and that will help you get more links and traffic.

Lastly (just to reiterate), you should read and comment as much as you can on other blogs (don't spam them) because when you do, usually a link to your blog is automatically included and you are getting your name and url out there for others to check your blog out.

Alex Muller said...

Very good post! I started a blog and listed my URL i got a few view and eventually it got to front page of google, i then changed my blog URL because the name was troublesome and not user friendly, now when i search my name the old URL is listed, and when i click it, it doesnt get redirected, it just say "doesnt exist" should i submit my new URL to the search engines again?
