There are many factors that make blogs much better than normal WebPages
including the speed at which blogs are indexed, ability to submit to blog
directories & normal directories, pings and track backs. All these little
things can help drive more traffic to blogs. Here are 15 popular
techniques you can use:

1.) Create at least four keyword posts per day. Most of the top blogs
such as Boing Boing, Daily Kos, and Instapundit (with literally tens of
thousands of visitors per day) publish an average of 30 small 100-150
word posts per day according to "Secrets of the A-list Bloggers: Lots of
Short Posts" by http://TNL.net

2.) Submit to My Yahoo! When you submit your own RSS to My Yahoo it is
indexed by Yahoo.

3.) Submit to Google's Reader. When you submit your own blog RSS to
Google's Reader the Google Blog Search will index your site.

4.) Add a relevant link directory to your blog and trade links like a
demon possessed! Although it may take more time than simply submitting to
a search engine one time, this method is perhaps the best way to drive
traffic to your site. Use software such as Zeus to speed up the link
trading process.

5.) Use ping sites like ping-o-matic. Ping your site every time you add a
new post.

6.) Submit your blog to traditional search engines such as AltaVista, and
MSN.
7.) Submit your blog to traditional directories such as DMOZ. Directories
(particularly DMOZ) increase relevance with Google. DMOZ is very picky,
but what do you have to lose by trying?

8.) Submit to as many RSS Directories and Search Engines as possible.
This is a simple but repetitive process that can be done with software
such as RSS SUBMIT.

9.) Comment on other blogs. Do not just leave short, lazy comments like
"I agree." Leave well thought out replies that will force readers to
wonder "who wrote this?"

10.) Use track backs. If there is a blog that you refer to or quote and
it is highly relevant to your subject, leave a track back. It increases
your link popularity and may even score a few interested readers from the
linked site.

11.) Go offline. Use newspaper ads, public bulletin boards, business
cards, even stickers to let as many people as possible know your blog
exists.

12.) Ad a link to your blog in your e-mail signature block.

13.) Use Groups (Usenet). Find a relevant group on Google groups, Yahoo
groups, MSN groups or any of the thousands of other FREE group services
and find like minded people and talk with them. Make sure your use your
blog URL like it is your name.

14.) Use Forums. Forums are one of the best places to go for advice. Go
to forums and find problems to solve. Make sure you leave your blog name,
but be tactful about it; some forums get annoyed with those who selfishly
drop a few links to their own site and leave.

15.) Tag your website. Tagging is a new idea that has erupted across the
web. Sites like http://Del.icio.us, Technorati and many others have a
social feature that allows you to place your article under keywords or
"tags" that everyone interested in that tag can see.

Although these are some of the most popular ways to drive traffic to your
blog, do not limit your self to tips and lists. Use your imagination and
you will come up with thousands of ways to drive traffic to your blog!
