free website trafficTraffic is what you need to make your blog successful so here are some tips on how to get traffic to your blog.

Firstly, ensure that you are consistently adding interesting and informative content to your blog that will attract a following.

Each time you make a blog post, take time to do some keyword research and use a different long-tail keyword for each post.  Using long-tail keywords with little competition makes it much easier to get a blog post ranked high in the search engine results.

Add an email subscription form to your blog, preferably above the fold, and invite people from your social networks to subscribe to your blog.

A great way to get traffic to your blog is to read, follow and comment on other people’s blogs that are within your target niche. Write useful, intelligent and informative comments and be sure to leave a link to your blog so that interested readers can follow the link to your blog.

Every time you make a blog post ping your blog to alert the search engines and blog directories that you have published a new post.

Submit your blog to the online blog directories. Whilst most of them are free some will require you to post a link or image on your blog.

Ensure you add the link to your blog in your email signature as well as your forum signatures and profiles.

Whenever you distribute your articles to the article directories add a link to your blog in the resource box.

Always provide a link to your blog on any newsletter you publish and give out. In fact you should do this in all forms of correspondences you create.

Be sure to print your blog’s URL on any brochures, flyers and business cards you use for your marketing strategy.

Add an RSS feed to your blog to make it easy for people to subscribe and submit your RSS feed url to the RSS directories. Via your RSS feed link your blog to Twitter, so that each post is automatically added to Twitter when you publish it.

Remember, consistency is the key, so post updates to your blog regularly to entice more subscribers.

The above are just a few tips that will help you get traffic to your blog if you include them into your online marketing routine.
