Blogging has become one of the fastest growing phenomena on the internet today. If you are a blogger like I am, you have found blogs to be fun, exciting and very interesting. Blogging is the best way to get your thoughts out to the world, and an even better way to attract people who have similar interests as you do. I personally have become almost addicted to blogging and have discovered some pretty cool topics that people like me are talking about. However, as a fellow blogger yourself, I’m sure you have been wondering to get more hits to your blog. I have been plagued with the same problem for years until recently where I have discovered some great methods attracting new readers everyday.
Whether you are writing a personal blog or a news blog, you want people to hear what you have to say. The more traffic to your blog, the more important your topics become. I have had several blogs start out as personal diaries, and end up becoming money generating powerhouses without much effort at all. Celebrities have even jumped onto the blogging bandwagon because they realize how beneficial blogging really is. But celebrities don’t usually have to worry about having to get more traffic to their blog. They are usually in the media every day. However, most people aren’t as fortunate and a lot of the time struggle to get a handful of readers. But I have found the way, and can teach you how to get more traffic to your blog without having to have your face in the news everyday.
When I started blogging, I discovered the plethora of blogging directories on the internet. There are thousands of directories out there that will let you submit your blog for free, and most of the time all you have to do is throw a small link on your blog. Over time, I have realized that if you really want to get traffic to your blog, you can’t rely on directories alone. Directories will bring you a handful of hits, but this is usually based on the quantity and quality of incoming links and posts. What you need is a way to accelerate your traffic quickly.
One great method to get more hits to your blog I have discovered recently is using social groups such as MySpace. This allows you to promote your blog to other people with similar interests as you. But this usually requires you to add friends and send comments and messages which can be tedious. It was soon after utilizing MySpace that I discovered MySpace friend adding programs such as FriendAdder. Programs like these have taken my blogs to the next level. Friend adding programs allow you to add 500 new friends every day in MySpace and even automatically send comments, messages, and bulletins to people YOU choose without the legwork. After using programs like these for a week, I gained over 1000 hits per day to my blog. Now I get comments and messages back every day about my posts that give me so much more interesting content.
Another great reason to get more hits to your blog is the cash it can bring in. You can even get paid to blog. Several sites allow you to add Google AdSense to any blog you make. Readers come to your blog and see ads that are contextually linked to your subject matter. When they click these links, you get paid. I am even making over $100 a day on one of my blogs. All from promoting it with a friend adding program on MySapce.
