Just A Give And Take
Blogging traffic is a give and take relationship. Sometimes one of the best ways to get traffic to your blog is by visiting someone else ’s blog. Go to their blog and read one of their entries, or read a few of them. Chances are that you are going to find something that you have in common.
When you find something that you find truly interesting on a blog, leave a comment so that they know that you were there.
One of the best known blogs available is LiveJournal. A great feature of LiveJournal is that you can search for interests on their site and it will come up with results of those who have that interest. Are you interested in horseback riding, ... You can see what other bloggers are interested in horseback riding as well.
When you are commenting on someone’s post, you want to make sure that you don’t leave generic comment. If you like the post, say something about what you read in the post.
After you have commented on the person’s post, then you can say something like, ‘I really like horseback riding too. I had a similar experience to yours.’ and
then use it to link back to your journal. But be sure that you sound sincere when you are commenting, and don’t make them feel like you’re just fishing for traffic.
If someone thinks that you are using their blog to only get more traffic to yours, they won’t visit your website and your efforts will be wasted.
