Getting Traffic To Your Blog

This is the question asked constantly.
How do I get more traffic to my blog?


Everybody would like lots of traffic. Duh.

This is the part with lots of hard work.
  1. Put accurate, attractive, complete, relevant, and timely content into your blog. You start with the content.
  2. Get your friends to link to your blog, where your blog is relevant.
  3. Participate in forums, where your blog is relevant, and include the URL.
  4. Comment on other blogs, in relevant comments, and include the URL.
  5. When you have done all of the above, your blog will have some weight. Submit your blog to the search engines, for indexing.

Remember though, none of this happens overnight. Search engines can take months to index your blog fully. And even when indexed, don't expect for a search, to some key element in your blog, to give you an entry on the first page of the search hits.

And know what your readers are looking for. If you see a trend of readers, go with the trend.

But enjoy your blog. If you enjoy it, you will keep at it. And regular updates will develop regular readers, which will encourage regular updates.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
