10 tips to increase BLOG traffic effectively

Liewcf.com has a list of tricks to increasing blog traffic. He calls it as “10 Tips to Increase Blog Traffic“. Here is the excerpt.

  1. Claim your blog at Technorati like services.
  2. Pinging Pingoat or Ping-O-Matic.
  3. Use FeedBurner for feed publishing.
  4. Bookmark every article at del.icio.us.
  5. Use extensive tagging and keywording inside your articles and on services like del.icio.us.
  6. Trackback, if you write about another blog or linking to other blogs.
  7. Use Flickr for your photos. Link to the articles in your Flickr descriptions. Don’t forget to tag your photos.
  8. Always ask permission before you use other people’s pictures. After publishing the picture, add a comment to the photo used (e.g Flickr photo) with a link to your article.
  9. If you are linking to somebody, send them an email about your link. Ask them to inform you if they have something interesting for you to blog about.
  10. Add a link to a keyword in Wikipedia whenever possible.
I just try out the steps above on last Friday except Flickr for photo hosting because i am using blogger.com service, it's easier to upload photo directly. I can see that my blog's traffic is increasing and hopefully can boost up to 1100 visitors before end of this month Aug 2007.

For BLOggERs that using blogger.com or blogspot.com, the service provider not support trackback function yet, but you can using another plugin service provider called Haloscan. See how to register and install Haloscan for your free blogspot.com to boost up your BLOG traffic.
