    Any Blogging Tricks?

    Does anyone have any good blogging tricks to help promote their website? I have been writing my blog for a month now and linking it back to my website for backlinks but it hasn't been too successful.

    Any tricks or pointers?

    Thanks much!

    Unless you have a really popular blog, its not gonna do much good.

    Try having few more blogs. As you work hard to get them popular blogs probably gonna help more marketing your parent site.

    Make sure you don't create your blog as a walled garden. Link out to other blogs, go and comment on other blogs, go meet other people.

    Check out http://www.doshdosh.com - technically it's a "make money online" blog, but there are great tips on driving traffic.

    Also check out http://www.problogger.net - can't go wrong following Darren's advice

    You lose much of a blogs effectiveness by having it not hosted on your website.
    Move it onto your website as quickly as possible. That way you can start taking advantage of your fresh content.

    Also respond to your commenter's on the blog and with a personnel email. This puts the social in social media.

    Then start using pinging services, stumble, digg, and so on...

    Also register with ppp [pay per post] networks to monetize your blog.Buy a cheap 1000 directory submission [$30 to $60] from DP or WSO forum.Submit 10 articles [$2/article] using submityourarticle.com . Ask 10 blogger of yoyr niche to write guest blogging post for your blog.
    This will be fruitful in long term.

    I don't think PPP is good strategy to monetize a blog since Google is dropping page rank of many blogs those involved in PPP considering it as Paid Links. Also having a blog there is no sense to submit article in others article sites.

    You have to join social bookmarking and social networking websites, join groups here. Expose your blog here. Regular directory submission in blog directories. These are helpful techniques.

    keep building back links to your site by posting on do follow forums and blogs. It will take you more than a few months to see results, try 6 months. I've also written a free guide for newbies to blogging entitled Make Money Online Blogging. It has lots of information and ideas for link building strategies and how to work with anchor text, it might be helpful, or then again it might not. All the best with your sites

    post comments on other blogs in your niche. write useful contents and make a good circle of yours. ping through technorati.com when you post new posts. use blog promotion tools as stumbleupon.com. go for PPC if you are really serious.

    For me as a blogger, blogging for a website is done to gain backlinks, promoting it thru blogs is just secondarily.

    If your primary reason of blogging is to promote your website, make a blog reviewing your products / services you offer (if you have); make your blog visible to SEs on KWs same as your website's KWs. (for sure you'll have same set of KWs!)

    is blogging really worth it. Are many of you seeing increased traffic to your site as a result.

    I am thinking of starting, but was seeking some tips before I started.

    Updating your blog with fresh and quality content regularly would be a good start. After creating interesting content, build links with relevant and related sites.
    Structure of the blog is also important for returning visitors.

    To expect good traffic in a month is expecting too much too soon. I suggest have at least 150 odd posts, and give some time for search engines to index your content before you can see the traffic coming in to your blog.

    So you need to make it popular. Add content regularly. Promote it.

    Then it will become popular.
