    The best way to get traffic to your blog is by using free promotional methods. The key is to have something on your blog worth checking out once visitors get there.

    Start out by joining all the forums, and social networks in your niche. The first thing to do is find out where your blog link is allowed, and don’t forget to post your blog link in your signature as well. Once this is done, take some time each day to make posts. Eventually people will start considering you an expert, and gladly check out your site.

    Next it is important to start submitting your blog posts as articles to free article directories. The free article directories will help promote your blog by distributing the articles to thousands of resources, which will also get your blog, and your article higher search engine ranking at the same time.

    Finally start to collect email addresses and setup your blog for RSS feeds. Allow the membership to enjoy your blog in the comfort of their inbox by choosing the option on your blog software to email the blog post every time a new one goes up. This will be a way to attract daily traffic to your blog for free, and keep the traffic you receive from your expert forum posting coming back.

    Blogging is really all about syndication – getting other people to pick up, view, and use your feed on their sites and blog readers. (How do I get people to subscribe to my blog.) You want people to subscribe to your feed – not to bookmark and read the blog.
