Just finished reading another helpful article on how to drive traffic to your blog. As you know having a personal blog is another low cost marketing strategy and can really help get your name out there. Here are few tips on how to make the most out of your blog posts.
1) Don’t worry about the length of your blog post, especially if you’re not a writer. Just make sure your blog contains at least one solid paragraph and about 50 words and great content. People subscribe to your blog because of your added value.
2) Use your blog posts to target certain keywords. Word choice is critical; your keywords will help those searching on search engines to find your posts. It is important to use keywords from the title of your blog as well as the body of your posts.
3) Link your posts from other sites. If you haven’t already register your blog URL with major search engines and also link your blog and resources from your profiles on social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn – Any site where you get to create a profile that’s all about you.
Okay the last tip I will share with you.
4) Pitfalls to avoid.
a. Limit your time in any lead generation method to something related to the number of leads. Posting at least once or twice a month has been found sufficient to maintain traffic and online presence.
b. Schedule your online posting and promotion activity. Create a schedule and make sure you post on a consistent basis.
c. Avoid promotion engines like link farms, free for all sites or search engine submission software. In most cases you will be penalized by Google for using these methods. In the end your best strategy is to write posts that are helpful to your readers.
