Increase your blog Traffic

Top 10 ways you can improve and increase traffic to your blog

1. Keep it Simple - Make sure the design is
simple,clear and pleasing to the eyes. Don't
overcrowd it.
2. Multiple Pages - If possible, divide the blog into
 several pages and access them through separate
items links on a menu or navigation bar.
3. Be consistent - Have same menu or some
 extensionof it on all pages so that viewers know where
they are at all times. Home is a must on
every page. Visitors should be able to easily look
around your website. If visitors are frustrated andcan't
 find what they are looking for, they are likely to
leave quickly and never come back or recommend your blog
 to others.The menu can be located at
the top, left or right side of the page.
4. Keep Content Fresh - Static content is dead
 content; Write new articles, update old ones. New or
updated content is a great way to keep visitors
coming back. Search engines also rank websites with
fresh content higher. Keeping an active blog is a
 great way to keep your website new and fresh.
5. Use Descriptive File Names - Use descriptive
 keywords as names for the files e.g., pictures, videos
on your site. This will help your site appear more with
 search engines - especially through Google
Image Search.
6. Create Links - Getting links to your website from
other websites will help generate more traffic and
improve your placement in search engines. Find
other websites on your same topic and put a link to
them on your site -- maybe in a new "Favorite Links" page.
Then ask those websites to link back to you
by signing their guestbook.
7. Tag your Site - Adding tags can increase the
number of times your website shows up in search
results. To pick the right keywords, try putting
yourself in the shoes of your visitors and think what
they would search for if they wanted to find your site.
8. JavaScript - If you are using JavaScript code, it can
certainly help you spice up your web site.
However, there are many scripts that your visitors
may find irritating. Try to avoid scripts such as
mouse trailers, mouseover sounds, mouseover pop up
windows and mouseover redirects.
9. Help Visitors Contact You - Make it simple for
visitors to reach you if they want. Include a
guestbook or blog where they can post questions.
Add a "contact us" form where they can submit
questions to you via email.
