There are several things you can do to get more traffic to your blog which are free, all they take is a bit of time and effort. Firstly, make sure your posts are keyword rich and are search engine optimised. By doing this you have more chance of appearing in a good position on search engines. Talking of which make sure you submit your site to the important ones. Secondly, make sure you are also subscribed to blog rolls and technorati as these too will generate some traffic and as your site becomes more popular the more traffic they seem to generate. Plus make it easy for people to subscribe to your blog by making your rss feed a prominent link. Next get yourself known on other blogs which discuss the same topics as yours by commenting on what other people say. But don't just post generic comments, show intelligence and that you have read the post as people quickly pick up on people just commenting to try and drive traffic to their own site. Most importantly give people a reason to return and recommend your blog to others. Make sure your posts are unique and express your own opinion which will make them interesting and stand out from the crowd. People don't want to read the same thing on several blogs but if you give your posts a unique spin you have a greater chance of getting return traffic.
