Increase Blog Traffic Today, pt2

respondsignHere is part two in our series for learning how to increase blog traffic today.

7 – Sign It With Your Blog – Add a link to your blog website in the signature file for your e-mail accounts as well as forum accounts and other accounts where signature files are capable of being used. People will see your signature, and curiosity will get the best of them, enticing them into checking out what you have to offer.

8 – Link Your Website – If you have a website outside of your blog, every single page of your website should have a link back to your blog. For more exposure, you may consider linking your website in your blog posts as well so that readers can alternate back and forth between the two in order to find the information that they seek. The more links that exist on the internet pointing to your blog, the better your blog will perform in search engines.

9 – Newsletter Exposure – If you publish any kind of a newsletter or reach out to a mailing list or contact list in any way, then you need to make sure that you are creating a link to your blog in every single issue. When people see your blog address in print enough, it will help you increase blog traffic by enticing them to check out what you have to offer.

10 – Auto Respond – You should make sure that you are offering a link to your blog website as a standard offering in all of your outgoing correspondence including sales letters, auto responders, reports, white papers and any other way that you reach out to people. Just as freely as you offer your e-mail address, you should be offering your blog website address as well because just seeing a blog address is usually a motivator enough to get people to come and visit.

11 – Business Cards – You are also going to want to print the URL for your blog on your brochures, flyers and your business cards so that people who receive these documents and take them home with them can have a copy of your blog website address.

12 – RSS – Make absolute sure that you are offering a RSS feed URL that your readers can easily subscribe to at will. The acronym RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and it is a type of document that lists updates from a blog or a website that are available for the purpose of syndication. These RSS documents, which are also known as feeds, can be read via RSS aggregators or news readers, and they may simply show headlines only, or they may show a combination headline and summary of each blog post or website. Offering an RSS option is one of the best ways for you to increase blog traffic, so make sure that you are making your RSS subscription option easy for your readers to find.
