27 New Lessons To Get 1000 Unique VisItors To Your Blog Everyday - Part 2


We have discussed 6 methods to get visitors to your blog in my last post. Lets continue our discussion and look at more ways to get visitors to your website.

7. Make Blogging Friends
Sometimes it is important to know few good bloggers in your niche. When you write a blog post email them and ask them to take a look at your blog post. You will be surprised to know how many of them get back and visit your blog. Also, if your content is appreciable then most of them will link to the post and mention about it on their blogs.

8. Write Great Headlines
As it has been said that you can come to know the content of the book only by looking at its cover, same applies to your blog post. Having a great headline will make people to stay and go through your blog post. It is also important as in case of social networks you can post only a snippet of your blog post. In this case having great headline will lure people to head over to your website and read more.

9. Begin Well
Well begun is half the job done. Having a great headline and useful first paragraph will make people to stay on your blog. This will increase the time people spend on your blog, it will increase the chances of getting them to visit other sections of you website. Most visitors leave a blog in the first 30 seconds, if you cannot get them to stay on your blog for more than 30 seconds then quality of rest of your blog is irrelevant.

10. Encourage your friends to visit your site
Ask your friends and relatives to visit your website and vote for it wherever possible. For beginners you need all the encouragement to keep yourself motivated and to go all out for your goals. Everyone needs some support during the beginning just like a baby needs support of his parents in order to take the first few steps in his life. There is nothing wrong in asking a favor from the people you know.

11. Write for people instead of social networks.
Remember your blog will be read by people although it is good to have a good search engine ranking for your posts. Majority of the posts written by established bloggers rarely make the cut and hit first page of any social bookmarking website. These websites are good to get an instant increase in your blog traffic but will not help you in the long run. There is appreciable difference in the quality of posts which they wrote earlier and they write now.

12. Take feedback and improve your blog
Do not overlook any piece of advice or feedback for your blog. But as a blogger you should know that you would be getting positive as well as negative feedback, and your blog will only grow and sustain when you know how to handle the negative feedback effectively. Remember you cannot satisfy everyone equally.

I will discuss some more important methods to get traffic to your blog in my next post

27 new lessons to get 1000 unique visitors to your blog everyday--- Part 1


The methods and lessons I am sharing with you worked for me for around 3 weeks till I lost the plot due to my college activities and have to build the momentum once again.I do believe that if these worked for me,it should definitely work for you as well.

1.Stand up
To become popular requires great skill in person and abilities to reach out to a wider audience.If one is chasing someone and not able to defeat or get past him then one should still try out to solve problems for people on forums and communities so that people keep coming back to you in future as well.Also standing out in your niche is what that makes you differentiated from the crowd.

2.Blogging by heart
Many have just screamed in the blogosphere because they see blogging as a source of income.People have stopped writing by heart and it has become more mechanical rather ideas from heart.People don't do it for their enjoyment purpose and as their hobby.This way Nothing great will happen to those who are starting recently.Only do blogging if you love doing it and be ready for investing lots and lots of time.Its only then someone gains some popularity.

3.RSS subscription options
People who give variety of options for RSS subscription on their blog make it that much easier for people to subscribe to their posts.

4.Full subscription please!
It can be a point of debate but I prefer people giving full feed of their posts.Its better that people read your than those who just subscribe your blog and forget about it.

5.Decision of posting
Its is a sure thing that regularly updating your blog will help to get better position in search engine traffic.But if you think that you are not confident about a post,try thinking over it again for sometime.If you are still not convinced then try to give up your idea of publishing your post as a bad post is never good for your blog.

6.Take a break
Taking break in between after regularly churning out good content is essential as it brings your focus back.I have had few breaks in between which has kept me going still.Try and realize how much is good for you and what is not.

In my next post I would discuss with you next 6 ideas to get quite a good number of unique visitors per day.

OK! so you are ready to move ahead with your new year resolution and fulfill it.I know what happened last year to most of the people's resolutions.They went off the gas fairly quickly and gave up the thought of fulfilling it.

Although there might be few exceptions who did better to what they resolved and are quite happier now,what about the majority of the people? Here are some alternatives on which you can work upon and forget taking resolutions and also cursing yourself after not being able to fulfill it.

The 4 keystrokes to land up you in a better position are Visualize,Project,Envision and Dream about your goals.

Surprise to some as how is it going to help?Lets try to first visualize some short goal and think about celebrating it when you achieve it.Even though you fail,you should try to celebrate on whatever was possible for you and stop saying to yourself that you are a big loser...No!
Secondly project and envision your tasks.If you have a blog and intend to create some good enough audience for your blog by the end of this year then try to figure out what is the best way to do it.If you see most bloggers struggle to keep the readers coming to their blog regularly.So not to take the backseat and think it is not working for you.Try to enjoy the work and envision that you are actually getting better day by day and try to be positive as that shows in your writing as well.

Visualization also comes with some manipulation as to what would work better for you.For example try finding out what is the best content that you can produce.Try changing your blog niche for sometime and providing something different .This would in turn help you as well to get fresh and you can anytime comeback to your original niche and writing style.

Dreaming something is also important as one gets good ideas sometimes dreaming about a particular thing.Most of the times our dreams do not come true but you can shrug it off and move ahead as most people do.Failure is stepping stone to success and people do need some failure to understand the way one has to deal with this world.

So try to dream big,visualize something new and try to project and envision its future for other people.May this new year bring all the happiness you need to get a move on in your life.

The month January was named after Janus who had two sided face,one looking backward and other looking forward.The practice of celebrating new year in the month of January in Roman calendar is started on the myth to look back at what have been wrong and try and correct that in the near future.

Your resolutions may be anything like quitting smoking and drinking or being confident in whatever you do throughout the year or looking to lose the additional fat that is being accumulated in your body or spend more time with your family this year.But we all know that its a lot easier to be said than done.We always hear that its better to follow what our elders say but not try and emulate what they do.

So thinking long and hard on where to start your journey this new year to complete your resolutions?How to perform better and overcome the odds against you?Then just follow the 8 tips to help you do whatever you have thought of this new year.

1.Be Realistic
Try figuring out what is best for you and up to what level can you certainly achieve.Try setting out realistic goals to do better.Likewise if you want to lose 10 pounds then try losing it 2 pounds a month or if you wanna spend more time with your family then try leaving your office or workplace on time or even few minutes before by completing your work before time to make your closed ones feel special.

2.Be public
It is often said that if you share things with others then you achieve some calmness and moral support psychologically even if no one actually lends you.Try discussing with your friends and closed ones about what you want to do and trying to achieve and maybe they are able to help you achieve that in lesser amount of time.Also as you have declared in p[public,the very thought of not being able to do haunts you and you tend to get the things done much faster than usual.

3.Your first step
When your car engine starts it takes a lot of energy to start but then gets rolling easily.Likewise it is always difficult to take that initial step towards achieving the goals that you have set.Thinking in your mind is one thing and being able to start working on it is something else.So try and be bold and confident and move towards resolution that one step closer.

4.Small steps to success
Setting short term goals to reach your destination sometimes is a very good idea.You know that you achieve only a specific amount in that time limit and hence you are confident of doing the things better and achieving more that what is required.Do not lose heart even if you underachieve but keep at it.

5.Pen down your activity
It is another great thing to add in your lifestyle.By noting down things that you have done and the ones to be achieved is best way to remember the goals that you have set and move that much closer to your destination.

6.Make buddies
Sometimes when you under achieve and get frustrated,you need buddies to share your feelings that you cannot with your family.It makes you feel that much more lighter from inside and gives you the encouragement to once again step up and move ahead even after the defeat.

Sometimes giving one credit for his accomplishment makes him feel more happy and the required encouragement to work even more harder.Similarly credit yourself and celebrate after achieving short term goals.

8.Accept reality
Human beings are not perfect and there is some failure round the corner.Be ready to accept that and move ahead in your life.Have a back up plan ready for yourself in case you fail with your current plan.It is always better to remain positive in your life.Some consecutive failures also come in some one's life and shakes him completely.But a true man rises from those ashes again and moves forward to become successful again.

So try to focus on what you have decided to do in your resolution and make appropriate strategies to work on it.Try using above tips as guidelines to turn your thought to reality and have a successful 2011.Happy new year to all.

Thinking too much about how to write essays?How to develop new ideas for your essays and improve yourself in writing?If all these things are troubling your mind then just leave it to ProfEssays.It has variety of essay samples to look and decide from.So just visit the site and check out for more details.

In this post I’ll be concluding my mini-series on the topic of offline blog promotion. Before you get into this last series of tips you might also want to check out Part 1 and Part 2

10. Workshops and Teaching Opportunities – this is something I experimented with in the early days of my blog (with some success). I noticed that my local library was advertising free community workshops in the evenings. The topics being covered were very diverse and ranged from a night for people wanting to visit Morocco (I remember that because at the time we were planning a trip), to a night on how to use email for seniors, to a night on parenting skills.

After attending the Moroccan travel evening I asked the librarian if they were looking for other workshops. She said yes and I booked myself in to run a night introducing people to how to use a digital camera. The night was attended by 50 people – all of whom went away with training materials with my blog’s URL all over them.

Similarly, many organizations like to feature speakers with expertise on different topics. Keep an eye open for these opportunities and while they might not always ‘pay’ you anything financially most will be willing to allow you to promote your blog.

11. Advertise – the idea of advertising your blog online is not unfamiliar to many bloggers who dabble with Advertising on AdWords, StumbleUpon, Facebook, BlogAds etc – however I talked to one blogger recently who had been experimenting with advertising offline.

He had been taking out classified ads in local papers. He’d used a unique URL in these ads so he could track the conversion and had found that it had been well worth the time and money that he’d put into these campaigns.

12. Notice boards – another tactic that I saw recently in a local cafe was to put up notices in public places. Many cafes, libraries, shops and community centers allow people to advertise services and events on notice boards – why not put up something about your blog? This of course will probably work best for blogs with a local focus – but if you target the places right you could also appeal to certain demographics.

13. Talk About It – many people like to keep their blog’s private from friends and family. However those that know you best could well be your best evangelists for your blog! Don’t go on about it all of the time but unless you’re giving away family secrets and blogging about the conversations you have with your best friends – let those around you know about your blog!

These were some good points we had to keep in mind because of increasing competition and I hope you also benefit from them.

In this post I discuss techniques 5-9 for offline blog promotion strategies.You can read 1-4 from part 1.

5. Go Postal
One morning a good blogger went to his PO Box to find that inside it was a rather large parcel. Inside was two things – a book and a T-shirt. He didn't know the name of the person who sent them to him but on the accompanying business card and note was the name and URL of a blog which he checked out later on that day.

Promoting yourself to other bloggers can be effective but many of them are being ‘pitched’ with ideas all day everyday. Sometimes to break the ‘virtual’ zombie like state that these pitches can leave people in it can be effective to send them something physical.

This need not be expensive things (although they could be). Over the last year I’ve been sent quite a few things including T-shirts, hats, books, ipod shuffles, electronic picture frames, birthday cards (many), memory cards, letters, USB memory sticks, trophies (for awards), food, diet supplements…. etc.

6. Mainstream Media Exposure
In the same way that you as a blogger are often left scratching your head wondering what topics to cover on your blog, mainstream media outlets (TV, Radio, newspapers, magazines) are always on the lookout for story ideas to cover.

Why not pitch them with a story idea about you and your blog?

This doesn’t always work but I’m always surprised by just how many of my own ‘pitches’ to mainstream media have worked.

The key with this is to give an angle for the media outlet to work with. Don’t just contact them saying that you’d like them to write about your blog – contact them with something that is story worthy. This takes a little work and at times creativity – but put your mind to work and see what you find.

Don’t just pitch big media outlets – put feelers out to local, national and international ones. When you get a nibble, develop a relationship with the journalist so that if a future story idea comes to mind you can develop that contact.

Sometimes these relationships can even develop into ongoing relationships. I’ve seen a few bloggers negotiate regular columns or ‘expert spots’ on radio. Similarly once you get known to journalists they begin to seek you out for quotes on stories.

7. Internet Cafes
I met one blogger a year back who had a blog with a very local focus. He negotiated deals with three local internet cafes in his area to make his blog the home page on all of the computers. In return for this he gave them some free advertising on his blog.

In a similar way the blogger made a similar deal with the local library who also made his blog the home page of their public internet computers.

This worked well for him because he had a local focus but it could work for blogs of all shapes and sizes.

8. T-shirts
Getting T-shirts printed up that promote your blog can be useful in a number of ways. For starters and as mentioned already, wearing a T-shirt can can reinforce your brand (and promote it) at conferences or meetups. You’ll be amazed at the conversations that wearing a T-shirt with your name and URL can open up.

Secondly, giving T-shirts away to readers can also have an impact both on them and their networks. I saw this at SXSW earlier in the year when I spied one of my readers wearing a ProBlogger T-shirt. He told me that he’d had a lot of people come up to him as a result of seeing the T-shirt.

9. Offline Publications
Many bloggers are protective about allowing their content to be republished but I feel that good bloggers should give it a go. One such incident that made me a loyal reader of a blog is that a person someday asked a good friend of mine to publish his articles in his monthly magazine on upcoming trends in bollywood and new faces.He decided to let them publish that for free that post.Many of whom decided to check out the source of the post became loyal readers of the blog

Magazines and newspapers are often on the look out for people to submit articles to them and will usually give a byline as part of their payment for the article. You’ve got the content just sitting there on your blog, why not submit some of it to an offline media outlet?

Stay tuned for one last post on the topic of offline blog promotion which will include 4 more of my strategies plus 7 from my readers.

Labels: ,



Its possible to promote one's blog offline.To do that follow the following suggested steps carefully

1. Conferences and Conventions
One of the first times I learned about the power in attending conferences was in 2009. I had no idea what to expect and had little time to prepare but decided to head up and see what I could learn.On arrival I wasn't expecting much but quickly found that the convention center was literally packed with opportunities on many levels, including finding new readers for my blog. Everyone at that convention was there because they had an interest in photography – so it made sense for me to position myself at this real life event.

Interestingly there was one other photography site represented at the event. I got chatting to them at one point and we marveled at how few of our competitors were there and how we’d struck gold by attending.

If there is a conference that relates to your topic that you have the ability to attend, do everything in your power to get there. When there, be bold, have something to promote your site (cards for starters), have something to say about your site (an elevator pitch), make friends and get them to introduce you to their contacts and be ready to make the most of every opportunity that might arise.

2. Business Cards
This is perhaps one of the more obvious tips that I’ll give today but a business card is essential if you’re going to do offline promotions. They are great for conferences, meetups, promoting to friends etc.

One thing I’ve learned about business cards is that if you can make them stand out in some way you can really grab people’s attention and open up doors to talk about yourself and your blog.Make sure your card has not only your contact details but where people can connect with you online (email, blog URL (and name), twitter etc).Get plenty of cards printed up and give them out freely.

3. Blogger Meet ups
Is there a local network of bloggers in your area? If so, make sure you connect with them and attend their events.Each time I’ve attended a blogger meetup I’ve come away with lots of great new contacts and potential promoters of my blogs. The great thing about bloggers is that they have readers already and if you can find ways to promote what each other does you can really see your readership grow.

Of course finding readers with a similar topic to yours is best – but even promoting across different niches can at times work if you find natural ways to do so.

4. Stickers
A couple of years ago I saw the power of stickers to promote a blog. One blogger showed up at the meet up (I don’t remember who they were) and instead of giving business cards gave out stickers.

Of course as the night progressed the stickers ended up being ’stuck’ on people. In fact during the night the stickers became one of the ‘features’ of the night. They appeared in loads of photos and even got mentioned in blog reviews of the evening.

In my next two posts I want to continue the focus upon offline blog promotion and will share another 9 techniques from my blog promotion tool belt as well as a number of tips from other bloggers. Stay tuned for part 2 and 3 of this series.

5 New Trends In Blogging


After seeing an outburst in 2010, 2011 is going to be nothing different.People are diving in the blogging ocean like anything.But what lies ahead and what re the new emerging trends in blogging.This is what this post discusses about.The five new trends that are most prevalent in blogging right now and holds the key in the future are
  • Multi-Author Blogs
  • Multi-Topic Blogs
  • Blogging through social networking
  • Blogs interlinks with other sites
  • Indirect Monetization through various modes
Its a trend that is observed after visiting many sites.You have a query or a good suggestion then shout out loud in the comment section.

Labels: , , ,



Its sometimes a great downer for anyone who writes his post for others and has no one to read and comment on.But all great things start from the scratch and all good blogs were having little to none in followers and readers when they started as we are now.But one's effort never goes in vain and it is just a matter of time before your hard work pays off and you do get readers coming to your blog.

The best thing that any beginner can do is to find out the best blogs which are having similar content or are in the same niche.Try following and commenting on their blog posts to have their attention on your side.This is certainly obtained after you comment on their blogs regularly.Also you need to join some forums where you can find the same kind of people over there and participate actively in the discussion.This does mean that you have be very precise and honest in commenting so that you are adding some value to your blog and not just spamming to get readers commenting on your blog.

To keep readers come back to your blog again and again you have to keep providing them something interesting and fresh almost every time.You find that so many well developed and popular blogs are in the same category but still enjoy fair share of readers.Thus being able to serve something interesting and relatively fresh content regularly is something that helps you to have a long term readership from people that re already following your blog along with the new ones.

It is sometimes interesting to find out that your blog has low readership or it is because of what you post on your blog.People sometimes get confused on what to write on their blog when they initially start.Most of the blogs on which personal views are expressed do not get much appreciation as not everyone has the ability to bind people up with their words,the mesmerising expressions and suitable use of sentences and figure of speech.

We always want to write something that comes naturally from the heart and also that creates a bit of enjoyment for your own self.When things are written for the right reasons and in the good frame of mind, the content is always appreciated by many.If an article or the blog is for sole purpose of money making then people do realise it who visit your blog and you do not get the popularity that you expect yourself to achieve in a certain amount of time.

So try to be full of positive and never say die attitude when you turn to blogging and share goodwill and set up a good example of human nature from your blogging style.This is the best way to develop and nurture your blog as I see it.

Although this post might seem irrelevant to my blog for some time as I am trying out dew things to get the blog in a better shape,If you have the posts arranged categorically correct on your site then you can have a variety of readers reading your particular section though one page only.This requires some initial planning but once you are ready then the blog seems excellent to you itself in the first place.Following are some ideas on how to get the tricks right for your blog.

1.Interlink to the earlier posts
This is an excellent way to help readers reach out to the other posts which you think can supplement readers on the entire topic which they are interested in.In a way this also helps in search engine optimization for your blog (particularly for that post).

2.Rookie area
If you have a particular section for the beginners in the blogging world,then it may add that little x-factor to your blog with targeted visitors approaching your blog.I am looking forward in getting this section of blog archive ready on my blog ready in near future.

3.Posting regularly on blogging basics
It is always important to revert back to basic stuff once in a while to get new readers on your blog plus keep your regular readers also interested.

4.Long term readership
Try having some guest post about basic blogging tips if you think you have had enough of those stuff by yourself.By this way you are developing long term readership as well as loyal friends for your site's future.

5.Advanced section
If you think that there is something special that is required to be conveyed for readers who are in the blogging for some time now then try having a section for advanced steps in blogging for them to make go to that one step ahead.

Ideas mentioned above are possible through constant research about various topics, good amount of content on your blog archive and seriously good writing style.Its also a fact that you cannot keep everyone happy.So do not try and keep everyone happy and interested who comes to your blog because believe me you cannot.Try improving you blog each day with something to add to your blog every once in a while.

When you write down a post its essential that you have the most appropriate content.Not only this the appropriate keyword is required for proper indexing of the page in the search engines.But still sometimes you find out that your page is not there in the top search results after so much efforts and choosing appropriate keywords.

One thing you have to understand that mere just writing a god quality post with appropriate keywords not going to help you out in any way.You are not not writing the stuff on your blog for robots.Before any page gets recognized by google(or any other search engine) as the most appropriate page for the search query,the page should have some linking to other sites and some interlinking posts on that same is required.Not only this some comments is also much appreciated.

So even though you are a new blogger and want to get your page on the top of search engine query result page then following the above things are the prerequisite.Also participating in other similar posts discussion and if possible getting a link from that post to your post is what important for your post to rise up the ranking.Try having people to your blog and comment because that is what that is going to help you.So invest sometime (from 20 minute to 1 hour of your time) on commenting on other blogs and participating in discussions on the forums to get more people commenting on your blog. This will increase your google page rank and thus your page will be displayed in the top page of search query.

We are always thinking of ourselves to get ahead of the others existing in the world and hence it is not bad at all to devote some time and energy to help your blog reach the top.Keep at at this new year and I am sure that many will become successful this year.

It difficult to get this thing out of my mind."I want traffic badly!". But can you think out of box and try to find out new ways to have more visitors to your blog.Its 2011 now and people have to think out different ways to outsmart others to get the visitors to their blog.This post aims at discussing 5 critical points which can help you in this regard.

1.Use search engine potential to the fullest
A long time myth that is repeated on every blog that search engine traffic is what that matters more to every blogger.Getting his pages indexed on the first page of search engines is what that makes any blogger happy.One should try to utilise the search engine's potential to the fullest to have quality traffic to your blog.It is possible by having four things that is content, correct keywords,links and code.By having these things in proper place,one can achieve great results that others cannot.

2.Keep your eyes wide open
You have to be constantly aware of what is the hot topic in the blogging world and should not hesitate to join in the conversation and also include that in your blog.Sometimes people feel that the content is on every one's blog and hence they might not get the traffic through this content and neglect.but this is not the thing to be done and keep yourself at it.You can in fact generate some interlinks from that same topic.

3.Create some immediate buzz
Using social networking potential like twitter, facebook,delicious,digg and reditt you can have good people coming instantly to your blog.If your post is something that is not there on others site then you can receive immediate jump in visitors to you site.However this maybe short term but is important to decrease your alexa ranking.

4.Try linking
Including links in your post referring to other sites who have the similar content shows off the link love and your willingness to share for no return.That makes others to also return the favour automatically.It is a long term process and requires some patience but is sure to work.

5.Keep posting
Be regular and keep posting on your blog.Having more pages indexed with different topics and keywords are sure to land up your blog to the top on search engine results.

Views expressed here are mine and I do not hesitate in saying that above mentioned techniques may also backfire for some.But one who dares to achieve the results is the ultimate winner.
