Market Your Blog & Get Traffic

Posted Saturday, January 15, 2011 by momscashblog | 31 Comments so far

traffic pic 300x239  Market Your Blog & Get Traffic  Christmas and the holidays have come and gone. The New Year  is already 16 days into January, and some resolutions have probably already been broken. Committing to resolutions can be difficult for some of us, and so easy to break.  Setting goals for yourself and your businesses, can help you feel that you have time to accomplish these things without the feeling of failure.

One of the goals I think every blogger is always trying to achieve, whether it’s the New Year or the middle of the year  is driving more traffic to  ones blog.  Traffic equals money.  Below is a assortment of only a ” few ways” to bring traffic to your blog. When speaking of bringing traffic to your blog there are so many variables that can be attributed to bringing traffic, that  if you tried to list all of them it could take up much of the page.

1. Expose your blog  by  using  the Social Networks  like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube  or any forums that you can participate in and expose the name of your blog. Social Networks are more important than ever before, you must be signed up with at least a couple of the good ones.   Exposure!

2. Market your name or the name of your blog, leave the name of your blog any place that you are able to. Some places won’t allow you to attach the name of your blog, but whenever possible do it. If you read the big newspapers online  New York Times, Gawker.com, or any others in that niche, at the end of each article is usually a place to comment. My theory is to comment whenever and where ever you can, thus leaving and exposing your blog. Remember though only leave a comment, if you have something intelligent to add to the article that you read. If you get one new visitor that week visiting your blog, I think it’s worth commenting & showing off your blog.  

3. Get some business cards printed, I really never thought that business cards and online blogging went together. However, over the past few years I’ve had  people ask me “what do you do for work?”, if I had business cards at those times I could of had a few new people wanting to start a blog!   Marketing!

4. Submit articles to some of the Ezines directories  that are  out there, your name/blogs will be seen and also bring you new readers and links, and maybe a writers’ job. You can do very well with this type of exposure, especially if you love to write.  Exposure!

5. Comment on other blogs as much as you can. The experts  tell  you to comment on those blogs that have a greater page rank or alexa number, the better the blog you comment on the better  for your blog and SEO.  I don’t always go along with this theory, however I understand it, but it’s snobbish in my opinion.  If I like some one’s blog I’m not going to stop commenting or visiting their blog.  The backlinks of course increases your seo and helps with your PR.   Exposure.

These are just a few tips to bring in new traffic to your blog or website. The best way to bring traffic to your blog are ones listed above and the many others that are tried and true. I’m sure you all have a list or have discovered new ones of your own. Would love to hear any traffic tips that you all have, or ones that you have tried in the past.

I would like to take this time to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and a successful one for all!!!

Another good way to get your blog name out there, is to list it at dmoz.org. It’s a free web directory.

jj-momscashblog January 21st, 2011 (10:34 pm)

Hi Inq, thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving a comment. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve heard from you also. Come back again. jj

Hey Corey, Great point about getting your name out there is definitely over at dmoz.org, especially because it’s a great directory to be on. Thanks so much Corey, & hope you stop by again. jj

Hi JJ, good to see another great article from you.

Wishing you a great year! Sorry for the belated wish! :)

Robert January 27th, 2011 (4:53 pm)

Hi jj,

I didn’t make any resolutions this year because I rarely stick to them anyway. ;-) I did however set a goal for myself and that is to not only get more traffic but more targeted traffic.

I’m sure I can accomplish my goal by using some of the methods you already mentioned such as getting more involved with relevant forums and taking advantage of my Facebook fan page and Twitter account.

I hope all is well with you and I hope 2011 is your best year ever!

jj-momscashblog January 28th, 2011 (7:52 pm)

Thanks guys for all the kind new year wishes and I hope success is great for myself and all of you!! Time management seems to be a big problem for me lately, once I can get that figured out, then social networking is one of my goals also!! Have a great one all. jj

Hey Surgical Suture, Nice to see you back here at Moms’ place. As I mentioned in another comment I didn’t put in all the different ways to get traffic to ones blog, but you certainly have brought up a very good point. I hope it’s one that we should all know, if not liike you mentioned we have to make our blog popular which isn’t always an easy feat to accomplish. I think the social media tools that we have to use now a days are a great way to get noticed. I also feel that if you have a great personality then you must use it however and whichever way you can use it. Thanks so much for your comment.Hope you’ll be back again. jj

It is a good idea for busy moms to have their own blogs. By marketing and monetizing blogs properly moms will receive a splending opportunity to receive additional income to their family budget.

ConstructionContractors, Hey Tom thanks for taking time out of your busy day and leaving a comment. Social Networking is definitely the place to be, I just have to get busy and do some socializing. ha I’m very good at that. Tom just had my bathroom remodeled and I had the greatest contractors that I’ve seen or worked with in a very long time. Sometimes it pays to really shop around and get recommendations from friends… my bathroom was done in a timely manner and came in on budget.
Thanks again for leaving a comment, jj

These are pretty good ideas. I resisted the groups and clubs to start with (I thought they were uncool) but as I go along, my resistance has been worn down and I’m finding them more and more helpful in driving traffic.
