    What are you currently doing to direct traffic to your blog? These methods aren't working AT ALL? ...or just not to the level that you had hoped for them to work?

    There are thousands of ways and methods that you can utilize to direct traffic to your blog. Have you considered writing articles, and linking out to your blog through resource boxes/signature links?

    Also, be sure to optimize your blog, with high quality information, that is deserving of being found.

    You could start by posting something of more substance to this forum and using the sig file to advertise your blog.

    There is no real secret in getting traffic to your blog. If your blog provides value, people will come. So focus on giving value, and you shall get what you want.

      Hey nightmare30xxx, like others have said there's a ton of ways to drive traffic to your blog.

      For my blog, I'm not actively marketing it currently. Checking my analytics I found that most of my traffic is coming from Twitter- from me posting the link to new blog posts as well as from my 'about me' section on the top of my profile.

      If you're consistently building a Twitter following and write great blog posts, you're blog will pick up a lot of traffic.

      That's what I'm doing for short term traffic. For the long term I'm focusing on SEO: keyword research ---> seo optimized blog post ---> post to twitter ---> encourage social bookmarking ---> build backlinks to blog post

      Facebook page for inspiration & JV opportunities-

    I am using few methods of driving traffic to my site or blog. It includes blog commenting, submitting articles to article directories, submitting press release to free/paid PR sites and backlinking and SEO stuffs.

    So far, the results have been good and I still believe that it is always good and advisable to track all the links and its conversion before you know that this traffic method works and if it converts.

    It simply means that if happen that you make some money, you need to know where does it comes from and focus on those areas which will be more effective rather than doing it blindly. This is what I think.

    Hope it helps...

    If you're just starting out, you can get traffic through your own personal network (facebook/twitter)... as you post more and more solid content, the traffic will grow organically...

    You can use tools like stumbleupon etc. too and if you've the dough, adwords... but be sure to drive to a squeeze page instead of your main blog (you direct your opt-ins to your blog articles in your follow-up autoresponder sequence)

    Hi! Try networking with bloggers in your area, and promote their blogs in your blog. Before you know it, some of them will (even without you asking) promote your site.

    Kind regards,

    SEO, Social Media, PPC - I'm sure you've had plenty of advice in these areas...

    But have you utilized the full potential of your personal network? Do all your friends know you have a blog, your family members..?

    "Launching" your blog can be the biggest splash you can make - so make sure you let everyone in your personal network know. This doesn't need to be done in a spammy way either - ask their opinions on articles or the design, ask them to refer their friends, let them know you're embarking on a new business venture. *Simply create awareness*

    Never underestimate the "Grand Opening" of a blog!
