How do I get people to see my Blog?

So now that you've been blogging for awhile, you're trying to get people to visit your blog. You've got good content, a popular topic, and even well-placed advertising...but you don't have many visitors. You have to find a way to create a blog that attracts visitors.

So how do you get visitors to your blog? The key is traffic. Traffic can come from a few different places. Direct links to your site may produce visitors, but search engines offer the real key to high volume traffic. People go to the search engines to find the sites that provide them the information they are looking for. If your blog comes up early in the organic listings of the search engine results, you will see more traffic.

If the content of your blog has something that people are interested in, they will come back again to visit your blog. This can produce word-of-mouth promotion and assists in improving your blog's placement in the search engines.

Every link can serve as a traffic producer. When someone finds a link to your blog on someone else's site, all it takes is one mouse-click to find your blog. Search engines take into consideration the number and quality of the links to your blog. They reward a higher placement in the search engine results when a blog is linked to frequently.

So if you want your blog to receive traffic you need to do these two things: Provide content that people want to come back to and get links to your blog.

Come back in a few days and I will have more information for you on how your blog can have great content and how to get links to your blog.
