Pinging is letting a blog directory (or RSS feeder) knows that you have updated your blog.
You can use feedshark and Ping-o-matic to regularly ping updates of your site. This is important as you can generate new traffic as well as returning ones. If you have any other pinging site, please share it with us.

By now everyone would know that my style of blogging is in the form of snippets for busy people like you and me who wants to read information quickly and easily without going through long passages.
I Just want to revisit my goal again for new readers.This blog is created to share my experences of attracting traffic to a blog from scretch. Too many sites are offering principles and there are not enough application or step-by-step guide on this topic.
This blog goes beyond a guide.
As I apply the methods which i have researched and gathered, to build up the traffic of my site, i will share my experences and the effectiveness of each method. In doing so, i hope to save you time.
As you witness the growth of this site, It is my hope that you will participate, share information and comments on this topic so that the readers of this site will benefit.
My traffic broke the 200 mark in just one week's time!
Blogexplosion is AWESOME! It helps in little-known-site like mine get notice.Will explore other methods and post update on this blog. I have place a link to blogexplosion for my readers who is willing to give it a try.Tell me about your comments after trying.

Forums are good way to extend your web traffic reach. Please do not just post your ad or link, you will be banned. Add value by contributing to the forum, participate in discussion, share information. Lastly, please abide by the rules of the forum.
The following are some forums you can visit:
Note: Honestly, i have not tried every single one of them. Will try one at a time. Please leave me a comment on how you feel about the forums that you have participated. Thanks
Wow! I am now convinced of the effectiveness of Digg's traffic reach. I am going to try other site like Slashdot's, Reddit, Furl, Shadows and Stumble. Will update the result to my site on my blog.

Encouraged by the small result, i started to research more on Web traffic by doing on books, doing hours of research on the Internet. Will publish my findings and thoughts on this blog soon.
Meanwhile, the next thing i am going to do is to exchange link with other sites. Exchange link with other sites is one of the method to increase web traffic to your site.
I am going to Forum and blog communities and ask (politely) to exchange links. It is a win-win situation. More traffic will be generated for both sides.
I believe also by giving traffic to others (leading to other sites) the traffic will somehow return to you. So i will be displaying links of those blogs or sites which i think are interesting and will benefit my readers.
Make traffic, Chase dream.
Btw, anyone wants to exchange link with me?

Wow! i could not believe it! The traffic to my site has increased.
Nearly given up but the result will spur me on...in search of methods to increase web traffic.
I checked my counter log and got to mention that social content site like Digg and BlogExplosion are quite effective. Got to explore this and other sites further. Will report status next time in...Traffic O' Meter!

Add a small text and web link at the bottom of all your emails, comments or posts
Be sincere in giving comments in forums or blogs. People will sense your sincerity and reciprocate (at least, this is what i believe)

I have added some new widgets. Check them out!
Widgets will make blog panel more interesting.

i just learnt from the internet there are advertising networks like Bloggerwave, LoudLaunch etc which offers money for blogging via sponsored posts. However, the blog must be at least 3 months old, updated regularly and no auto generated content.
My blog meets all criteria except for the 'blog must be at least 3 months old' rule
Well, till next time...
Will find out a list and post it in my blog.
If you have any to recommend, please post in my comments. Thanks!
Thanks for your support. This blog site has a gradual increase in traffic after just 2 days.
Let's have a break. Enjoy this video and have a good laugh! This guy is really very funny!
BTW, creating funny video can also increase traffic. Too bad i like writing and not a video person.
I went to Backflip, Bibsonomy, Reddit and del.icio.us to bookmark my site to increase traffic. Will add more bookmarks in the future.
I am trying out Traffic exchange site like BlogExplosion. I have just registered with them and will you know the result in my subsequent posts. These are all efforts to let people know of this new blog site.
Digg is one of the many user driven social content websites.
It is quite popular. I have bookmarked my blog with Digg. Will let you know the result in my subsequent posts.
There are many principles and articles on "Increasing traffic your site".
The difference is i am going to apply those steps and information (these are many hours of my research), i gathered for you and detail my experience/steps in every post. Stay Tuned...
Of course! i must submit my url to google, yahoo and the other search engines and the open directory, DMOZ (http://dmoz.org/). Will do it now...

i got a problem. No body knows my site yet? How do i get them to know of this new site?
I have good posts and information but no one visits my site means no one will know. It is a catch 22 (or chicken and egg) situation. I am still thinking...maybe will come up with suggestion shortly.
Joined the blog community site - MyBloglog and added the "Recent readers" widget to my site. Also to increase reach.
Next, I registered my site with Technorati, a blog search engine. Added a "Add this blog to my favuourite Technorati" button to allow my reader to add to their favourite list. This is to increase reach.
As i understand the importance of RSS feed to attract returning readers, I added Addthis RSS Feed subscription widget onto my blog.
At this point, i have posted about 4 to 5 short posts.
I also reviewed my post titles as title is important when reader searches for my posts.
To show that i am serious about measuring traffic (although it is quite pathetic now...), i have added a statcounter to measure the traffic flow to my site.
Blog description is important for Adsense contextual advertisement to display relevant ad. I type some descriptions related to the content - Increasing web traffic.
While i am in my blog dashboard, i notice this 'Earn money from you blog' ad, i decided to click and add google Adsense into my blog.
This is the initial step of adding a monetization source into my blog (i will find others and add it to my blog).
I have to create an account with adsense and place the adense into my blog using the page elements of the blog. Since Google takes about 1-2 days approving adsense account, i will just have to wait. Meanwhile, google will display some public service ad.
I have created this blog and in order to enhance it, i have added the Recent Comments widget.
You can find this widget at the following url:
Disclaimer: i am not associated with the above link and use it at your own discretion.
I have also added the link feature so that i can include interesting blog or site or those want to exchange link with me.
This is an experiemental project where i create a blog and attract traffic from scretch.
No celebrity endorsement, no established brand backing and no 'inappropriate' content (i do not believe in creating 'inappropriate' content just for the purpose of creating traffic. One has to be socially responsible!)
Just a topic that every web publisher will be interested in...HOW TO ATTRACT TRAFFIC TO MY SITE!
There are many principles and articles on "Increasing traffic to website".
The difference is i am going to apply those steps and information i gathered for you and detail my experience/steps in every post. Stay Tuned...
Please leave a comment and share with me your advice or experience on how you attract traffic to your site.
Here goes. Start of Project Heavy Traffic!
