    Advertising a Blog?

    Do the same principles apply? Is there anything different that should be done? Thanks in advance.

    Submit to blog directories, leave comments and trackbacks to related blogs, and then everything else you do for normal sites.

    A trackback lets you notify another blogger that you have mentioned one of their posts or used a quote from one of their posts in yours. It usually shows up in the list of comments for the other blog's posts with a link to yours. It's a function built into most blog software.

    Yeah, trackbacks are a must for any blog. You should also submit your best posts to social bookmarking sites. If they're good, you can get other bloggers to post about (and link to) your blog.

    You should claim and submit your blog in technorati.com and also don't forget to ping your post regularly.

    What helped my blog (700 visits/day) :

    - Submit to articles in article directories including info about you and a link to the blog.
    - Do relevant link exchange
    - Submit to RSS & Blog directories.
    - Write content regurarly

    Basically, I didn't do much, but the result is not bad. I get more then 600 visits/day and my blog was somehow listed by Yahoo! directory in multiple categories without me even knowing it.

    Hope that helps somehow,
    Radu

    To get more traffic create a podcast. Then you can submit to podcast directories too.

    I only get 30-70 uniques a day, but traffic is growing.
