Try social bookmarking your blog

Blog carnivals are great.
Blog daily, and keep at it.
Write articles to drive traffic to your blog.
Guest post on other blogs in your niche.

Is your blog on a subdomain aka blahblah.typepad.com or your own domain? It needs to be on your own domain, helps others take you seriously.

Blog Views versus Comments

Postby initial-impressions on Thu Oct 23, 2008 6:57 pm

Is there a way to determine if your blog is getting views whether or not anyone is commenting on it?

I work hard on my blog, but it doesn't get much in the way of comments.

It is almost two years old now and the topic is custom embroidery.

Great information! I have been doing quite a bit of research on social book marketing, feeds amongst other things about getting your blogs seen. Found some more places to check out. Some places I enjoy:

For initial-impressions question:

Yes, you should install Google Analytics on your blog. It is free and it tells you exactly where your traffic is coming from, what keywords people are using and many other statistics.

Pinging is one thing that could help. I'm not sure what default ping sites typepad has though. Or you can always joing mbloglog.com and blogcatalog.com. It's easier for bloggers to find blogs related to a certain topic their.

And ofcourse, blog commenting, and exchanging links (in a clean way) with other bloggers with similar blogs will do. Reach out to the world, but understand that it's not an overnight thing... It takes time. But it's worth it.

The free methods are always the best but as with anything whatever methods you use daily consistent action is the key to get that steady flow of traffic coming to your site daily.

We had the same problem before - how to attract visitors to my blogs!

Based on my experience, one effective ways that I did was to submit my blogs to several blog directories. In just a week's time, it brought over a hundred visitors to my sites.

Try typing in google "free blog directories" - you will find plenty of them!

Good luck!
