Blogging for Fun and Profit

Many bloggers will start out with one to five posts on their first day and then post once a day or week. This is the first thing that they are doing wrong to get their blog off the ground. You ask all of the bloggers that have done this and they will tell you that it took a week to a month before they started to get readers.

Having five posts when your blog is started is not enough to get people to hang around and keep reading. You have to have enough posts pre-written so by the time your blog goes live you can post them all one after another. This will allow a visitor to be able to have a look around at what your writing and the more they read the higher the chance that they will subscribe or come back for more.

To get returning visitors from the start you have to have AT LEAST 20-30 post pre-written and ready to post as soon as your blog goes live. If you have 20-30 quality posts ready to go you can be assured that your visitors will stick around and read.

Tagging

While researching blogs and blog promotion I came across something called Technorati Tagging. I had never seen this before and I didn’t have a clue what they did so I looked into it further. I found out that Technorati Tags are actually able to deliver mass amounts of traffic. They way it works is as your writing your post when you come across a word that could categorize your post you add [tag] and close the word with a [/tag) (change the ) with a ]) around it. This will ‘tag’ that word and once your blog is pinged to Technorati your blog will be placed under the category of that word. When someone searches a word that you have tagged your blog will show up.

Social Bookmarking

You will definitely see results by social bookmarking. It is very simple and all it requires is a little time. All you simply have to do is notify them of your post: Oh that sounds so hard. I managed to find a great list of the best social bookmarking sites. Take your pick of these top 20. They are all great and will improve your search engine results greatly.

Social Media.

Share your blog on social media such as linkedin, facebook, Google plus and twitter you will get some traffic through it as well.

Tell Other Bloggers

If you are after highly targeted traffic then this is a MUST. Before your blog goes live search through Google and other search engines for a blog that is highly ranked on the topic you are writing on.

Create some personalized emails for each of the blogs you find (I recommend around 30-40 as you should receive 75% positive results). Do not email the bloggers until you have made your initial posts.By notifying other bloggers about your blog you will get the ‘word’ out and you should receive some good traffic and links from these other blogs.

Guest Blogging!

You should accept guest posts on your blog so that people submit their articles to your website and you can publish them after reviewing you will get some quality content for free and writer will ask for a backlink – this is a fair trade.
