I have started blogging recently but i don't find many visitors on my blog... Does anyone here know ways to increase traffic to a blog... I have tried submitting the blog url to yahoo and google.. but still nothing works for me... The trafffic is very low. I have also included google ads on my blog and the response to the ads program is also very bad.. Does anyone know ways to increase the clicks to the ads.. One way i read was to improve the content of the blog which i did.All the ads which come now are relevant ads.. but still i get very less click.. If anyone knows or wants to share his suggestions or experiences please do reply.. Thanks..
You can't expect to have your ADs clicked while you have no visitors. Some ways are stated below:
- Use Safelists: They are web sites where users subscribe to send and receive emails from other members. Some of these lists are free and others are not.
- make a signature... Like this forums' user signature, make to include your blog's address. Also you can do the same for your emails.
- Exchange banners, You can exchange banners with other sites.
- Tell your friends about your site. You can't imagine what a word of mouth can do or how it can spread.
These of course are some basic and the easiest yet the slowest ways to bring users and visitors to your site though they can help...
Also try searching this forum, as i believe that you may find hundreds of topics about it...
As TrueFact pointed, the best way to promote a new blog is telling your friends to access it. Ask them to make sure that everybody knows about it!
I would suggest you to try to write really interesting, not too short neither too long articles on all topics you know the best. After some time, your top-quality, exclusive content will pop up on search engine results and new readers will appear.
In the mean time, prepare your blog for them. Select the most beautiful theme/design and put some useful things on its sidebar (like a list of your best posts and bookmark/feed buttons). If you use FeedBurner, you can also put a link that will make it possible for people to receive email messages when you post something.
wait and take ur own time. in the mean time also try to submit it in the major blog directories and social bookmarking site.
carl_fernandes, you did not paste your URL on this thread. I've noticed you didn't add it to your signature either.
Hurry up, you are losing potential readers!
Try these two things :
1) Make friends with other bloggers. Link to other bloggers articles in your blog (link love) and they may also link back to you.
2) Write really good quality articles and submit it to sites like stumbleupon, reddit, digg and mixx.
I'm still waiting the address of his blog... :'(
You need to work little hard on seo when it comes to blog. use all methods like social bookmarking sites, networking sites like MySpace / Facebook to promote your blog also forums too.
U really cant expect hundreds of visitors pouring into your personal blog with sentences like "Hey folks... any roadies fans here... "
Dude, convert it into a more professional blog, a tip for you, there are millions of indians movie goers who search the net for reviews about a movie, so if you have a review site, make it really professional... people will be pouring in...
And to preserve professionalism:
Change address (hop onto frihost, so in future if you want a TLD you can do it easily)
Write content more professionally, write more content... (about 15-20 movies are released every month in bollywood, write about atleast 10...)
shkhanal: I don't want to "buy" readers. I prefer to gain their consistent readership with my texts.
consistent readership is a gradual process. Quality content and long age automatically develop it, but I was talking about immediate traffic.
Find related blogs and post helpful comments, help that blogger in the discussion area of their own blog. Make sure to include a signature to your site.
If you gain a relationship with them, they will probably help promote your blog.
^Probably... but in my case it's not always true. :p I help a lot of people and I seldom get backlinks from them.
truefact have a good suggesion i think link exchange is a good way to make more visitor
I am building a site about how to make money with blogs... but it will not be free...
^ There are hundreds of such sites. Are there still people fool enough to buy such stuff?
