Blogging traffic is a give and take relationship.
Sometimes one of the best ways to get traffic to your
blog is by visiting someone else 's blog.
Go to their blog and read one of their entries, or
read a few of them. Chances are that you are going to
find something that you have in common.
When you find something that you find truly
interesting on a blog, leave a comment so that they
know that you were there.
One of the best known blogs available is LiveJournal.
A great feature of LiveJournal is that you can search
for interests on their site and it will come up with
results of those who have that interest.
Are you interested in horseback riding? You can see
what other bloggers are interested in horseback riding
When you are commenting on someone's post, you want to
make sure that you don't leave generic comment. If you
like the post, say something about what you read in
After you have commented on the person's post, then
you can say something like, 'I really like horseback
riding too. I had a similar experience to yours.' and
then use it to link back to your journal.
But be sure that you sound sincere when you are
commenting, and don't make them feel like you're just
fishing for traffic.
If someone thinks that you are using their blog to get
more traffic to yours, they won't visit your site and
your efforts will be wasted.
