Driving traffic to your blog.

It’s one of the tasks that sometimes easy, and sometimes not.

Here’s another “weapon” you may not have thought of when getting traffic:

Re-tracking old posts.

When you read blogs on the web, have you ever thought “Man, I have an older post that would fit this conversation pretty well”?

Well, if you do, use your blog’s search function, find it, make sure it fits the conversation…then find the date of the post, and use your admin area to edit (if you have WordPress, which most blogs do).

Link appropriate keyword text if possible to the new post you were reading on another blog, and then add the new link to that post to your “trackback” area, and hit “Update post”.  So long as the blog author allows pings and trackbacks, your post should link to their blog post in minutes to days.

Once you get this process down, it shouldn’t take you but a few minutes to fully execute this strategy.  That’s worth a few extra visitors and subscribers right? Plus, if you get visited by the right blog owners, they may take your post and share it themselves…which gives you even more traffic.

Simple.  If you feel your readers could benefit, please share this post, or link to it…and feel free to comment with more traffic strategies below…
