Everyone who has a blog wants it to be successful and also have a lot of web traffic. You want your readers to be excited about your content so that they keep coming back to visit. There are three marketing tips that you can to do to help you be a successful blogger. To be a successful blogger, you need to have a RSS feed, update on a consistent basis and comment on other relevant blogs.
Marketing Tip # 1 – RSS Feed
When you start a new blog, no one knows about it unless you actually give them the link. You actually have to do some marketing to let people know that you exists. There are some easy ways to get the word out about your new blog. The first thing you should do is set up a RSS feed. You want to allow RSS feeds to be taken from your blog. RSS feeds are a great way for promoting and getting your blog out there. You should include a widget on your sidebar so people can sign up for your RSS feed.
Marketing Tip # 2 – Update Blog Frequently
The second tip is to update your blog frequently and on a consistent basis. If you have committed to updating your blog daily, then update it daily. The minimum is to create a new blog post once a week. If you develop a consistent pattern, then your readers will start to come back to your site looking for new content. I can tell you from personal experience that you need to be consistent. If not, you can start to lose your readership.
Marketing Tip # 3 – Blog Commenting
Another way to get more readers to your blog is to comment on other relevant blogs. You should find blogs that are similar to yours. Read the posts and make relevant useful comments. Do not just say "Nice blog post". Most people allow you to leave the URL of your blog in the comments. In some cases, this will also create a backlink to your blog. If your comments add value then people will come to your blog to find out more about you. There are several tools that you can use to find relevant blogs. Two of these tools are Technorati or the Google blog search tool.
As you can see, these are three easy ways to get more traffic to your blog.
