Although it is nice to have a blog, it does little good to have one if you cannot attract a lot of people to it. In order to accomplish this, you must be proactive and do what it takes to bring in a steady flow of traffic. Here, you will learn how to attract visitors to your blog.
The first thing you must do is have a quality site. You must provide a lot of content relevant to your target audience. I proactively eliminate any typos I have, avoid using flashing graphics, test my links, give each page the same background color and make it easy for people to read and navigate my site and go from page to page. Some of my visitors come back regularly.
It is necessary to update your blog frequently. I update mine at least once a month. The more updates that you make, the more likely your visitors are to return, because they crave fresh content and want to see that you are serious about keeping your site in excellent condition. I inform readers of any changes I am making that concern them. Also, I regularly post new tips or other information pertaining to my business.
It is important to hang in there and not give up. The longer you have your site running, the higher you are likely to be in the search engine rankings. According to Candidity, you need to be around for a while in order to establish a track record and give the search engines enough time to move your site substantially higher on their lists. I have run my blog for six years.
You can help yourself by using good keywords and a strong page title. By choosing the words in your content that most closely describe what your site is about as your identification tags, you will help the search engines that crawl your site. SEOBOOK provides a free keyword density analyzer tool. Having a strong headline at the top of your home page is ideal, especially because your headline, or blog title, is what usually stands out in the list that pulls up as a visitor conducts a search for information. I use an exciting headline that quickly describes what my blog is about.
It is helpful to get plenty of referrals and inbound links. If your blog provider gives you a viral marketing button to put on your blog, use it. Another thing you can do is create an account with More Share and insert their button into your pages. If you do not know how to insert a button, you can learn by clicking here. I get lots of quality inbound links by providing the URL to my blog in my profile on Facebook and Linked In and writing articles that contain my bio at the end for Ezine Articles.
