Get more visitors to your blog

As blogs are really no more than simple websites, the rules that apply to driving traffic to your blog aren’t very different from those that apply to any other site.

But there are a few secondary methods that can drive small amounts of very targeted traffic to your blog.

1. Forum/discussion group posting: many forums allow you to include a URL in your post. By choosing forums that are highly relevant to the topic of your blog or to a specific blog post, you can capture highly targeted traffic to your blog, simply by including your blog (or blog post) address in your contribution to the forum.

2. Posting comments to blogs that are very related to yours and including your blog address in the comment. Many blogs allow you to do so and many bloggers will actually be grateful for the attention you’ve paid to their post.

3. Technorati tags: find out more by following the tag at the end of this post.


The first two methods are time consuming and labour intensive but they can also contribute to your inbound links (PageRank) and provide more ways in which surfers can find their way to your scribblings.

You can place a space in your Technorati tag uising + i.e. your link should be to http://technorati.com/tag/blog+traffic

Yeah, I just figured that out myself. Aah, what a lovely little learning curve this all is...

Thanks for both your comments.
