The Internet Marketing course I’ve been working on and talking about at length here includes a module on blogging power.  A short article on blog traffic was also  a brain child of this mudue   and it was  featured on EzineArticles.  You can read it here too.

Driving traffic to a blog is similar to driving traffic to a website. You need to have keywords that capture the attention of the search engines. You need to link your blog to the sites that are going to drive the most traffic to your site. You have to constantly look for new ways to drive traffic to your blog.


We are going to discuss a few characteristics of blogs, and how to get blogs. Most blogs are hosted on one of the free blog sites, or you can buy a domain and set up WordPress.


If you are serious about making money through blogging, I suggest setting up your own domain where you can control every aspect of your blog. If you decide to set up a free blog, your best bet is to go with Blogger.com. This site is owned by Google and tends to get indexed quickly.


You want to start writing on your blog regularly. I do not recommend posting to your blog everyday, but you should be posting at least once a week. This will keep it fresh, and Google will recognize that your site has fresh and relevant content.


You can promote your blog through article marketing. I would write articles that are relevant to the contents of your blog, and then link your articles to your blog. This will help you start generating traffic to your site.


You can also promote your blog by posting regularly to forums. When posting to forums, you do not want to sound like you are promoting yourself. I would just post to specific forums regularly to get more people to check out your blog. In the forums, you can update your signature to promote your blog with each post.


Make sure you don’t promote yourself too much in your forums. You don’t want to come across as someone who just wants to sell you information. You want to promote yourself as someone who can help others and is a valuable resource for information.


You could write a whole book about blog traffic, as there are hundreds of ways to get traffic to your blog but these are just some of the ways to get blog traffic.
