Once you have your blog setup you are probably wondering how to get traffic to your blog. Now everyone says content is king. But even if you have the best content in your whole entire niche it doesn't matter unless you have traffic.
It starts with your title. One of the reasons Carl Ocab is so successful is his title: Make Money Online with a 13 year old. People see make money online all over the internet, but how often do you see Make Money Online WITH A 13 YEAR OLD. Now that is intriguing. Plus you want your title to be keyword rich. Almost every word should be a keyword, but also have your own spin on the topic.
Now you are going to want working on backlinks so that you work your way up the SERPs ( Search Engine Ranking Positions). Search your keywords and find the top sites in your niche. Find blogs or websites run by a person rather than a company and ask them to trade links with you. Go to some of the sites they have traded links with and ask to trade with them too.
Now that is all long time stuff. The best way to get some quick traffic is articles. Sign up for ezinearticles.com and submit 10 articles. At the end of each article include the link to your blog/website.
Write articles mostly about your niche. If you have a make money online site. Write some interesting articles about how to make money online. Try to come up with a new idea thatwill catch peoples attention. It doesn't have to be a huge idea but just maybe a new way to look at a certain way to make money online.
You can also try to write an article that is going to be popular with lots of people and will get lots of traffic. It probably will not have anything to do with the topic of your blog. However, an article about the Top 10 Celebrity Failures will get lots of traffic. So you will get a lot of traffic to your site. This traffic is not going to be targeted like the traffic from the articles related to your blog. But it might attract people who will keep on coming back.
