5 More Top Blog Tips
If you have recently started a blog, check out my original 5 Top Blog Tips (http://www.expat-blog.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=1762). If you are ready for something more advanced here are five more tips to get more traffic to your site:
6. Ping Technorati
Pings inform the Technorati search engine when you have posted new content. Most blogging software has an option for sending pings automatically when you publish a post.
7. Use tags
Use tags in your blog, these are keywords that are picked up by search engines like Technorati. You can add tags manually into your code but most blogging software has a function that lets you do the same by simply entering in keywords.
8. Guest posting
Going on vacation? Don’t let your blog fall into disuse, get a guest blogger. Preferably someone who shares your general interests but has a unique perspective, different personality, and adds their own spin!
9. Submit articles to blog carnivals
Blog carnivals and circuses are basically a compilation of topical blog postings from various sources. I post on a couple of different ecology related blog carnivals.
10. Join MyBlogLog.com
