A sure-fire way to get more traffic to your blog

Looking for ways to increase traffic to your blog?

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from blogging during the last few years, it’s this: The number of hits I get on my site corresponds directly with how often I post. When I post a lot, I get a lot of hits. When I slack off for a few days, my traffic decreases.

Which is why, even though I’m struggling to keep up with my inofficial blogging schedule while working a full-time job and keeping my Socialexis clients happy, I’m determined to continue posting regularly. Because I know it works. You’re more likely to come visit when you know I post often.

If you’re looking to get more traffic to your site, set this goal for yourself: try to post just one more day each week. If you post once a week, increase to twice a week. If you post twice a week, aim for three posts. See if that makes a difference. (And let us know if it does.)

And while you’re at it, while you’re working hard to juggle three or four or five balls at once, exert just a tiny bit of effort on making sure that you bring a matching pair of shoes to work. Because otherwise you’ll end up, in your third week at the office, unlacing your walk-to-work sneakers only to find yourself with a black flat and a black heel.
