So you have a blog, but no visitors. How do you change that equation? Enter ProBlogger, one of my favorite experts on the subject of blogging. He recently posted a blog that cites 7 Factors on Generating Traffic to Your Blog.
What I like about this article is that he acknowledges that blogs differ from niche to niche and from reader to reader. So, what may work in one environment may not be as effective in another.
His article cites eight core sources for driving traffic, but notes that there are more than just these eight ways to drive traffic to your blog:
While paying attention to these eight (or more) sources is important, ProBlogger argues that there are other factors that you need to consider when trying to drive traffic to your blog. Some of the factors he encourages you to consider: the fact that some methods are better than others (obviously), it is important to diversify, don’t get complacent and that it is very important to “be yourself” (as we like to say, “transparency is key”). If you are a blogger, or considering becoming a blogger, I encourage you to take a few moments and check out ProBlogger.
