There are many ways to increase traffic to your blog. Fresh content always brings back readers, so be sure to post often.
1. Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization is important. Use the right keywords in your posts and tags to get higher in search results. Also, make your HTML and CSS Search Engine friendly.
2. Social Bookmarking
Add your blog posts to the social networking sites you're apart of such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace and Ning. This will put your post in front of your target audience.
At the end of your post, ask a question or encourage your readers to make comments. Comments help keep your blog active. They also help build traffic. If someone leaves a comment interact with them. This gets harder as your blog grows but it's particularly important in the early days of your blog as it shows your readers that their comments are valued, it creates a culture of interactivity and gives the impression to other readers that your comments section is an active place that you as the blogger value. It's also a great way for your blog readers to chat between themselves and make friends.
4. Link Building
Add your websites to Link Building sites such as TrafficG.
