This is the third installment in the series.I hope you would have taken advantage of the ideas expressed in the Part 1 and Part 2 of this series already.

13. Offline Promotion
Talk to friends, family and coworkers about them… you’d be surprised how much the traditional way of “networking” really does work.

14. Search Engine Optimization
Properly optimizing my blog has been a big boost to my readership. Once I figured out how to play around with SEO I started getting a regular 25-35% of my hits from Google.

15. Quality Content
This is already stressed by me many a times and is the word of almost all the bloggers.Posting only quality content.. obviously! Better posts are discussed more, increasing both the number of comments and references in other blogs.

16. Blog Carnivals
submitting posts to Blog Carnivals also generates traffic.Strange Isn't it?

17. Memes
Yeah, a meme. Bloggers want to know about bloggers, not just the business aspect of it but the *person* writing the blog. Reading a quick list of “getting to know me” type tidbits gives me instant inside information on whether or not I will become a regular visitor. Some participants have used it solely to gain business, but frankly I think that turns people away. People are interested in people first, and what they do second. It works.

18. Frequent Posting
I also try to post frequently. I find that the more I post, the more readers I have. The less comments, but the more readers.

I hope you would have got the central idea about what is important to attract readers.In my next post I will rap up the series and give final 5 tips to have readers coming to your blog so wait and enjoy.

This is the second part in series to attract new readers to your blog.You can refer to the part 1 for more details.

7. Give Away Free Stuff
I’ve had some success with giving away free stuff, like free templates for WordPress. It doesn’t give me lot of new readers, because my blog is written in Norwegian, but the templates give lots and lots of new links to the blog, giving it a much better pagerank in Google, which in turn should mean more readers from search-engines.

8. Be Opinionated
Be opinionated, but encourage opposing viewpoints in the comments. Opinionated makes you interesting – encouraging other perspectives makes you essential.

9. Ask Questions of Other Bloggers
Ask questions of other moderately successful bloggers and try to network. If you shoot too high, you’ll often get blown off because these people have so much stuff to read and deal with.

10.Use Trackbacks
Sending highly creative and penetrating trackbacks about a blogger’s original post.

Buy advertising space on related websites.

12. Educate Readers about RSS
With the most recent blog I launched I created a page in WordPress called Feeds which not only has the RSS icon on it but a description of what a “feed” is and what are some of the most common ways to subscribe and use feeds, mostly pulled from a CC article.

Refer to the next part so as to find out more new ways to attract new readers this 2011.

Some good comments on blog posts sometimes helps even the other readers to learn a lot of things to improve themselves.I ran into chain of comments reacting to the topic of how to attract more blog readers.This post certainly describes their point of views in having done everything to keep new readers to come to their blog.

1. Comment on Related Blogs
Commenting on related blogs is probably the most effective strategy early on in the process and responding to comments when people leave them on your blog (this encourages them to keep coming back).I visit other blogs in my niche, add them to my feed and participate in the discussion on their blogs via the comments. Writing interesting comments often gets people to click through to see your site.

2. Join Forums
I’ve found that one very quick way to infuse readers to a new blog is to be active in discussion forums related to your blog topic. Locate posts that ask for help with something you are familiar with and share your experience.

3.Write Effective Post Titles
Simple and to the point. The title should create an instant urge to read the entire post… But of course it should be related to the topic of your blog.

4. Interviews
One example being to interview fellow bloggers who are in the same niche as me. This has gone down well, and has been great for both myself and the interviewee as traffic flows between us.

5. Persist
Persistence is key. After starting up a new blog last month and letting go of another this month, I notice that traffic (quality traffic) doesn't happen over night. On my last site, I think it took 6 months before found me.

6.Connect with Local Bloggers
The other thing I have been doing just recently is connecting up with other bloggers in my city and the neighboring towns. We've got something of a link exchange going and a nice side-effect to this is that I/we have discovered that there are quite a few more bloggers and/or website authors in the area than ever expected.

In my nest post I will reveal the other new methods that would be useful in 2011 for you all to attract new readers to your blog.

If you really want more readers and subscribers to your blog everyday then Digg and Stumbleupon are the way to go.Following are the important tips that most professional bloggers follow to have their content on the front page of Digg and stumbleupon.

1.Your Flair is important
Everyday many new topics rise up the pyramid to be on the front page of Digg and StumbleUpon.The competition you can say is quite fierce to have your content on the top.Mostly the articles having informative content like"how to be a" blah blah blah or any important new related to business blogging or Internet catches the attention of the readers.So use your writing style and flair wisely to come up with the appropriate topic and content.

2.Choose your category
Since the recent change in these sites, the categories and topics have broadened over here and hence there is a wide range of topics to choose from for your published article.The liking for any specific category changes over a period of time but still Technology ,Internet , Business Blogging are the hot topics over the entire year.

3.Start Digging yourself first
A strong tip to be successful in these sites is to first satrt republishing and likng others content.Follow other writers and share theri content for sometime and build your friends and foloowers over the site.After this you will automatically see more and more republishing of your own content.Try to give more and expect less,then only you can move further.

4.Install widgets and Buttons for easy sharing
One thing that sometimes bloggers ignore is that they often do not include the Digg and Stumbleupon buttons for automatic sharing of your content on the site.This maybe due loading of the page takes a bit longer due to these buttons but still its worthwhile having them.

5.Quality content is desired
You should always try and publish articles which you think are the best and readers will appreciate your work.Try writing one or two of them at least once a week and then publish them over Digg and StumbleUpon and you will find out that more and more people are liking your blog and pots.Its always better to have good content advertised rather losing readers because of mediocre content.This is what the professional bloggers practice and hence are successful than others.

I have some strong gut feeling that I will have my articles in the front page of these site soon.What do you think?

A large survey of good sites and reading their content is sometimes so much essential when you do not have much to write for your own.Buzzing through the topics and closely observing key points mentioned in the posts you can derive several ideas which can be converted into a series of posts.The organised fashion of writing and maintaining the blog is what separates the best from the other rookies.

The following four C's are so crucial that if you have all of them then your blogging success is almost certain i n the near future.These 4 C's are:


Success always depends on some crucial factors and for any blogger to succeed in the blogosphere, the content is the most important element.You can refer to my post on how to create good content for more details.What people write from their heart is most liked by people all round the world and not scraps being written only for money.Content with good expression and presentation still rules.I was not a good writer right since my school days but slowly over the past 15 months I have improved a lot in my writing skills and grammar but their is still a lot of improvement to be done so that my posts are just great for anyone to read.I guess that a successful writer is always capable of holding people through his way of writing style and use of words.Now you would surely understand how important good content is for any blog.

By consistency I want to say that you have to consistent in your posting.A good blog blooms better over a period of time only when a writer has put in the hard work to update his blog every day.Its not a compulsion that you have to churn out many posts every day and this will never happen also.You have to decide what re you comfortable with and accordingly pace yourself to be consistent.Remember that Search engines also like to index those blogs which are updated every day.


Social networking is the order of the year for 2010 and will be the same for 2011 unless something new appears to be more appealing to the readers and b;loggers.Try raising your voice and your blog through these community sites and I ma sure that even those sites which were not able to generate readers for 10-12 even after having good amount of content on their blog have started generating good traffic through by the use of Technorati, Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Stumble Upon and many other such sites.

Also important thing to consider is that link building should also be performed by bloggers to earn good page rank and Search Engine Optimization for their sites.Many bloggers initially miss the trick by going only for content on their blog and later on suffer for lack of back links to their sites and hence their page rank is lower although they have good enough alexa web rank.


Its always give and then take relationship in blogging.Even if you have to give out more than what you take ,it should not matter for you as long as you enjoy it.I have seen good bloggers always going to the site not known much and still reading their ideas and commenting on their posts to improve their writing style.So it has to be understood that you should once again start commenting on any blog that you like and not just not on the popular ones.I think keeping these strong commenting habits will surely help to give you long term profit.

I guess these were by far the broad factors on which success of any blog depends.There might be more that one would like to say so do not hesitate and try to shell out some precious words of yours.

The blogging habit can sometimes be hazardous to health.Surprised? maybe not.This post is mainly to discuss the effects of blogging on our health.So read through and learn how to live happier and healthier while blogging.

Some may think that it is actually not.If somebody is blogging only for half an hour or an hour then maybe the case is not so serious but who does this professionally for long hours and till late night hours has adverse effects on the health. Following are the few effects on the health due to long hours devoted to blogging.

1.Eye strain
Long hours spent in front of the computer can cause irritation and sore eyes consistently and also can make you wear spectacles and lenses.The eyesight depletion has been a major issue for professional bloggers.

2.Muscular pain
Prolonged muscular pain in the neck, shoulder and back strain has been common problems for people who sit in front of the computer for long hours.

3.Disturbed life cycle
Working for long hours till late night and not able to sleep for long hours in the night causes extreme disaster for your body.Frequent headaches are a common issue for people.

If you feel that you are also affected by these symptoms then maybe you can follow below mentioned ways to stay healthier.

1.Do not concentrate too much!
It is always advised that you should not concentrate too much on the computer screen for too long and should take some time in looking at other places and not on computer continuously.You should also blink faster while looking on the screen.

2.Stretch yourself
In between stand up and stretch yourself.While working for long hours always try this to avoid neck and shoulder pain.Also it gives your fingers the required amount of rest after working continuously for long hours.

3.Avoid too much of caffeine
When you work for long hours you do take tea or coffee multiple times to stay awake and have good concentration at work.But excess sugar will not do good for and may result in sugar imbalance of your body.

4.Sleeping is essential
You should try to make yourself healthier by sleeping at least 7 hours in the night and going to bed by 11-12'0 clock in the night and not much later.This will enable you to have a better body cycle and good health.

As a young guy I always prefer to sleep by 11'0 clock in the night and have a good 8 hour sleep.Above things are very much the things that everyone should follow to be healthy.Happy blogging.

I visited a good site which mentioned how the writer indexed his site again in the google search engine after his site was previously banned due to spamming and his copied content and later he fought through all the troubles and he got his site listed in the search engines.This post is just an excerpt of what he has done and is surely a good method of getting your site listed even if you do not have your site listed yet.

If your site has some copied content or some republished article from other sites,then try and writing few good legitimate posts(atleast 10-15 in a row and not copying content) and then try to submit the site into google and other search engines.

I have observed carefully that if the botz of search engines find out that your site is regularly updated plus the most recent content is legitimate, the gets automatically indexed.This method sure works and has worked even for me so it will for you as well.

I guess you would realise that this thing is really simple but is actually not.It takes some months time and hence some patience is really required in this process to go over the line.
