    Blogging; if you know how to do it right, can be a great experience. Unfortunately the majority of people getting online to begin blogging fall into the common frustration of seeing low traffic numbers when they check their stats. Why is this the case? Ultimately it is because getting traffic to a blog is a science, like many other strategies implemented in marketing products and services. There are four ways that can help in achieving more traffic at a quicker rate. Two of the ways to produce an abundant traffic stream consists of writing and promoting your subject and/or niche in other sites, and another strategy to reeling in this traffic is a traditional business tactic in attaining a base of customers; or in regards to blogs, followers.


    1.) Write Captivating Articles -

    Article marketing is one of the best ways to attain traffic as it is almost always free and can allow a marketer to express their interests in any desired niche. If you submit articles to directories you are not only getting a steady stream of readers, but you are also building backlinks to your blog site. An example is EzineArticles.com, as it is has its own readership of people looking for topics that you may just be blogging about. Therefore, if you write an article and submit it to a directory a person will not only read your article but also be enticed to visit your blog.

    2.) Reasons to Re-Visit-

    Giving people a reason to go back is seen all throughout commercial businesses. For example, stores and restaurants will hold special sales, events, and offers to keep customers coming back for more of what they love; but this time with a lower price or “buy one get one free” offer. This exact formula can also be replicated in your blogging techniques. The idea to keep people coming back over and over can be lucrative and the best way to do this is to create special events and offers. For example, you can give away a new prize each week to new subscribers to your list. In addition, you can also run contests for people who leave comments on your blog posts. In short, making your blog “a place to be” will attract more people as your subscribers may even tell their friends.

    3.) Doing Keyword Research-

    Rather than throwing up blogs and expecting traffic it would be wiser to research the keyword data to find terms that are getting a lot of searches. In addition, attaining keywords that have low competition would be a greater choice as it will make your blog easier to rank.

    4.) Link Baiting-

    The idea behind creating link baits is stirring enough controversy through your post that you can produce strong emotional reactions by people in order for them to comment and link to your blog post. For example, if a hot new electronic product; like the iPad, just recently came out on the market and everyone is raving about it, you can explain why you don’t like it to your readers in a way that will give you strong emotional responses automatically.

    In short, these are four ways that can be solid; if used appropriately, in bringing in more traffic and attaining a base of avid readers.

    Good point.Just to add up, Don't forget images. You can Upload images to your site and post them instead of posting a URL to the original. While images do not always make sense in every single post, they should be used whenever possible. Be sure to tag your images with the keywords that match your content to bring in image search traffic. Select striking photos or animations related to your post.

    Anyway I already read this thread to other forum that you post. Sharing this to us is still appreciated.

    Just make your blog interesting for users. That's more important because if they are interested they will come again and again.

    These are amazing tactics to get the traffic to the blog but I think participating in the social networking sites, link baiting, link exchange give the most quality traffic for the blog. Also doing the article submission with the good and the quality content helps to get some unique visitors for the blog.

    In this area, remember to include images to increase Blog traffic. Instead of posting a URL to the original, images can be uploaded to your site and posted.

    Include images to the site. Avoid posting the URL to the original source. You should promote the site with keyword-rich content and even comment on other blogs.

    Well, that's copyright infringement and basically, stealing other people's hard work and gaining from it.
    It's the worst thing that a blogger could do to get traffic.
    I can say that it's unethical.

    There are lots of good Wordpress plugins that increase the return rate of your customers. I'd recommend ThankMeLater. It sends a Thanks note to everyone who leaves a comment, but it does it 2-3 days after the event. By that time they may have forgotten the blog so it encourages a return visit.

    Thank you for the quoted plugin 'ThankMeLater'. I had a look at it and it looks like a very useful plugin.

    Another great plugin for WordPress would be the 'KeywordLuv' which allows members to leave a comment, a backlink and it will be wrapped in an anchor keyword of your choice, giving you the full SEO benefits.
