Ways to get traffic

Written by George Manty  · June 5, 2006

I just finished reading this post by Seth Godin and I have to say that it is a good read for those looking for more blog traffic. Probably the biggest key to getting consistent blog traffic is to write good content. The better content, the more other people are going to want to read your blog.

I gave some traffic tips a while back in my wife Jill’s Story post on ProBlogger. Looking back, the three things that I believe gave Jill so many repeat visitors was:

1. Regular and Frequent posting (3-5 times a day)
2. Quality content
3. Unique perspective of her blog (she emphasized the human interest stories in the olympics)

Which brings me back to Seth Godin. Last Thursday my wife Jill went to the airport to pick up our son Matthew who was getting back from visiting his Dad in Washington state. While waiting in the airport Jill picked up a copy of Seth Godin’s book “The Purple Cow” and read most of it. I haven’t finished reading the book yet, but the emphasis of the book is on how you need to make your business remarkable. I think point 3 above is what made Jill’s Winter Olympics blog remarkable. Now sure, we could have done other things to set it apart from the crowd, but the focus of her posts were very unique and helped her retain readers throughout the olympics (and beyond).

So my advice to anyone who wants more traffic to their blog is to “be remarkable”.

    Thanks for the great advice. I thought I was doing well posting once a day on my blogs. Looks like I’ll have to increase my output a little.

    Do you recommend any other pinging services, aside from pingomatic and pingoat

    You can post once a day, the key is that you post frequently. However, I think posting more times means more visitors per day, and more natural Search Engine traffic because of all the content you will build up.

    I don’t use ping services. I ping everything using wordpress built in ping capabilities. I know many people use pingomatic and pinggoat. Have not heard of many other systems.

    I am interested in a blog about SEO. If you have one and I have overlooked it, please let me know. I am also interested in posting some of your blog content in my blog.
