You have built a great blog and now you need to get traffic to it…so how do you do this? There are lots of techniques to get blog traffic such as search engine optimization, social bookmarking, link exchange etc.
You can also leverage MyYahoo to get your blog indexed quickly. First of all, you will need to open a free yahoo email account. Once you have this opened you just log-in and click on the MyYahoo link at the top left of the page. If you are using an old version of MyYahoo you will see a link that says ‘add content‘. On the newer versions you will need to look for the link ‘Personalize This Page‘. Here you will have the option of adding your RSS feed. You then just click on the link that says ‘Add RSS Feed’.
When you have made changes to your blog you need to let the blog services know by pinging them. You can ping 17 services quickly with Pingomatic.
You need to generate quality, targeted traffic to your blog. The type of traffic that is going to come back again and again. Repeat visitors are the cornerstone of a successful blog so your marketing and blog content must be focused on creating new traffic with the aim of bringing them back to your web site time and time again like a powerful magnet.
It’s a recurring cycle that you need to create. Generating new targeted traffic and satisfying the needs of the visitors that have already found you so they come back time and time again.
It’s an amazing fact that 95% of all blogs receive very poor traffic. Many blog owners seem to thing that once they create the blog the traffic will automatically come. This is not the case so you need to take immediate action to start giving your blogs some much needed exposure.
To generate massive blog traffic you have to automate the whole process. Doing it manually will take forever and you will never be able to hit the traffic levels required to make a difference to your conversions. You need to leverage the power of software so you can generate unlimited amounts of traffic quickly at the push of a button.
One of the most effective ways to get your new blog some much needed exposure is to get it indexed on dedicated blog directories. You can do this for free by completing a small form on each directory. Here are web sites that list the top blog directories.

Top Rank Blog:
RSS Feed Directories
If you already have a blog then you know how important it is to add your blog feed to the top directories. The ones listed below are all high page rank of 5 to 7 so they get crawled constantly by Google so your blog can only benefit from being indexed on them.
All you need to do is click on the rss button on your blog to find the RSS URL. As you make new posts your rss information is updated automatically on the feed. You only need to submit once. Some directories will ask you to register first but with high page rank it’s worth doing to get the link juice back.
