You landed on this web page in your search of ways to increase blog traffic on your blog or website.

Various authority blogs and forums touching on the topic of traffic generation says that in order to increase blog traffic on your site, you must do any or all of the following:
  • Email Marketing

  • Forum Posting

  • Blog Commenting

  • Social Bookmarking

  • Social Networking

The above mentioned traffic generation techniques are very effective to increase blog traffic on your blog or website.

But the best source of traffic is the traffic coming from the search engines.

You may perhaps notice that when you look at the data of your google analytics account, the majority of your traffic comes from the search engine.

Capitalize on those visitors coming from the search engine.

Majority of those visitors come to your blog or site once and never return.

You must convert those visitors into regular readers by making it easy for them to subscribe to your blog or website so that they will be notified of your newly published blog post or article. Hence, an increase in blog traffic.

In this Wordpress blog, you may have noticed, there are 3 ways in which to convert a site visitor into a regular reader.

One, Immediately below the comment section of the blog post, there is a tick box where you have the option to subscribe to new post via email.

Two, in the lowest part of the sidebar, is a subscription form where site visitors may choose to subscribe to be notified of future post.

Three, after the article post, is a subscription form for an email newsletter that a visitor may subscribe to be able to be notified of future posts as well as any future information that the blog author may provide.

If you are one of those webmasters out there who are not using these effective ways to increase blog traffic to your site, then I suggest that you start using it right away.
