Notes from the October 28 Meeting:

We are now getting serious about our blogging, in fact some of us spend some considerable time putting together a post, writing and then perfecting it until it is just right and ready to publish to our list of followers….

Followers… That would be traffic, right?  If only we could get more traffic to visit our blog.  This is always a problem when you are getting started and despite all the promises you receive via your daily bombardment of emails, it does take some work,  a little time and most of all perseverance.

Here are a few ways to increase the flow of traffic to your blog that we will be discussing at our next meeting

Do your keyword research

To find the best keywords to include through your post. I have been using Market Samurai. The Keyword research tool within Market Samurai is free to download. Find and use the best keyword phrases in your posts to attract free traffic from the people who are typing in those words & phrases.

After using and learning how to use this amazing tool you will want to purchase the complete package, like I did.

Install All-in-one-Seo or Platinum SEO Plugins

Submit your Blog to some RSS feed

Add Images and Videos to your posts

Add a Twitter Tools plugin

Add the "Sociable" plugin

Set up an Aweber account

Social Bookmark your post to Digg, Propeller and StumbleUpon

Ask Friends to comment about your post

Submit your post to Ezine Directories

There you have it, there are plenty more ways to attract traffic but if you take action on the ones above, you are on your way. 

Make sure you register for our next meeting on the 28 November when all the above will be gone through in more detail
