Boosting your Blog Traffic

There are a number of ways to boost traffic to your blog, such as traffic exchange systems (Blog Soldiers, Blog Explosion, et al) and link exchanges. A new link exchange, Ex-Link, is about to start up and they are using a viral mechanism to promote it. The site itself gives little away, other than an invite to sign up. When you sign up, you get a somewhat cryptic message thanking you for signing up. It'll be interesting to see if this succeeds.

I totally agree with the ideas you have mentioned. But I got another suggestion for bloggers to find blogs that are of similar topics and ask for link exchange. They could go to blog directories (e.g. and then go to the category their blog belongs to and then visit other blogs. Post comments and then contact the blog owner. I like this method because similar blogs tend to attract the same targeted groups and thus are more likely to lead referrals. And by the way, bloggers could submit their blogs to directories and get more traffic.

All too often, people just want to get in the minds of other people. I dig traffic tools, but I really like the ones that give a picture of the person you're about to learn more about.

I developed a blog traffic tool that basically lets you look at a page full of pictures, then hover over one to learn more about them. If you like what you see, you can click through. It also adds a layer of popularity to the mix by delivering the highest trafficed people to the top of the list. Let's face it, we need something new!
