Many of the things I’ve already suggested will help you get traffic to your blog. And I’m really not making that stuff up.
It’s the synergy of the previous tips (leaving comments, getting onto social media sites) with some other easy tips that will get people coming to your site.
Do everything for Google. We’ll get into that in more detail later on, but there are a few more simple things you can do to make sure search engines will find you. Create a Google account and make sure your site is registered. Your blog is brand new, Google doesn’t know it exists yet. Tell it early. Have a simple and unique name that is easy to search (the complete opposite of the name of this blog). Tag your posts, and put them in categories. But Nick, I don’t see you doing that. Oh but I did.
You can also backlink. Those comments that you leave with your blog’s link at the end? Those are backlinks. Any time someone on any website links to you, Google counts that as a vote for your website. The more votes you get, the higher your place is in Google’s search, the easier you are to find. Simple, easy and infinitely useful.
