Bringing in Traffic?

My biggest challenge has been bringing in traffic. My ultimate goal is to attract advertisers with my high RSS subscriptions, unique visitors and page views.

How do you bring in traffic? I'd love some advise.

This is a backwards Works-for-Me-Wednesday. Normally it's about sharing a tip, but this week it's about asking a question. Help out these other people with their burning questions.


  1. I don't have a huge following either. But comment at new places often. Many people will come visit in return. But the biggest thing is content! If somebody finds your blog enjoyable or interesting, they will return over and over. : )

  2. Guest post for other bloggers - especially those that are more popular than yours. You will get quite a bit of traffic from that.

    Also, have guest posters on your blog.

  3. I wish I got more traffic too - or well traffic and comments... I find them to be lacking. Do you use a sitemeter? That way at least you'll know how many people are viewing your site and where they are located.

    If you come up with any other brilliant tips - let me know too! :-)

  4. I am a old blogger, but I'm just starting to try to blog in public rather than just for friends. If I may say so, I think your stated purpose at the top of your blog and what I see in your content is a little different. I have two artist friends that have started blogging, I wonder if they'd give you tips?

    I'm also joining the pro-blogger challenge to critique my own blog.

  5. I have the same question and will be watching your comments for ideas! Hope you get some good ones!

  6. I have found that when I take time to find new blogs and comment on them, I will get new people coming to my blog. Also, I have found some great blogs this way.

  7. My blogging goal for this year is to steadily build my traffic, and one of the best methods I have found is to network with other bloggers. Comment on their blogs, make friends with them, email them, post in forums, and just get out there. So far, it seems to be working and I have built some great online friendships along the way!

  9. Network network network and comment comment comment! I've tried many things (I'm still not where I'd like to be, but I'm getting there!) and these seem to be the constants.
