In that case, there is one word you must keep in mind: To establish a popular site, you will need plenty of blog traffic to help boost your search engine rankings and visitor referrals. What is the best way to attract the typical blog reader and keep them returning? Here are five grass-root ‘tips’ you will want to keep in mind for attracting blog traffic as you lean over your keyboard, pounding out your next post.

Maintain Just ONE Blog

Many bloggers online agree that focusing on just one site allows you to put more effort and quality into that blog. Jumping from one place to the next and trying your best sets the stage for less effort, less quality, and less traffic. The only thing you will see an increase in is FRUSTRATION.



Use Social Network Sites

To properly participate at these sites, you must invest time, much like a blog. It, therefore, stands to reason once again that you can easily spread yourself too thin working too many of these sites. There are only so many hours in the day, and if you intend to get ‘real’ results from any of these social sites, it is best to focus your efforts. Therefore, choose your favorite place (s) with the best potential for exposure and become a fixture there.

Post Comments on Other Blogs

Either from a learning standpoint or to increase your blog traffic, you should go out into your community and visit other (similar) blogs. Participate in the conversations if you are intrigued or post comments about particular entries. However, posting comments only when they are constructive and not for traffic generation is important and polite. If you leave enough ‘quality’ comments, you can gain considerable blog traffic from the backlinks you receive.

Blog with Passion

If you have a real passion for your blogging, the reader will know it. Another area where your love will show up is your efforts’ consistency. If a genuine interest in what you are doing is not present, you will burn out sooner or later, and most likely, itoner. Blogging takes time and effort, and it can take quite a while to build up a loyal following.

Post Original Content

One of the most attractive aspects of blogging is the chance to express yourself if you are so inclined. But aside from personal expression, the content you post to your blog should be your own. You may not think you are a good writer, but that does not matter since whatever you post is uniquely you! Whether it is your insight, humor, or original, useful information, there will always be somebody else who will enjoy it. By posting consistently in this manner, you will develop a popular blog over some time.

The originality reflected on your blog will set you apart from all the rest, so focus on this aspect in particular. Some of the best blogging tips you can follow merely address certain fundamental rules or pure logic. For anybody looking to establish their site as a popular blog within their niche, attention must be paid to ‘gathering’ the necessary traffic. The need to attract and then maintain the loyalty of your blog reader is your first step and a top priority for gaining popularity. By following the 5 ‘tips’ discussed above, you will best serve your readers, and they, in turn, will appreciate your efforts and maintain their loyalty. If you keep a consistent effort, the result will be a popular blog you and your readers will enjoy.
