l have spent many hours of blogging and guesswork to find out what is working now and what not. Setting up a new blog would be a headache for everyone, but with some simple and not painstaking tips you can make small improvement in your blog and raise your traffic at least 100%!
Use the simple rule of three.
The first blogging traffic attraction tips is very simple. Your goals is that every reader would stay and read at least three posts. Experts say that 7 posts reading converts better. I could say that the average person cannot read 7 blog posts at once. They will come back again and again to read more if your content is great.
Target 100 blog posts.
Have you ever heard of the Hundredth monkey effect? Scientific researches has found that a learned behavior spreads instantaneously from one group of monkeys to all related monkeys once a critical number is reached. By generalization it means the instantaneous spreading of an idea or ability to the remainder of a population once a certain portion of that population has heard of the new idea or learned the new ability by some unknown process currently beyond the scope of science. This is the critical mass you need. You need 100 blog posts, 100 comments, 100 likes, 100 customers etc.
Have one epic article for every 5 posts.
A single post consists of 500-700 words. That is the general rule. Take care to have epic article posts of 1.500 to 2.500 words. These are the grounding floor of your blog, the foundation articles and it will make the difference for you. Place one epic blog post for every five normal posts. This means that you need 80 normal blog posts and 20 epic to reach the critical mass of the 100 posts. So try to be consistent and blog daily. If you make at least a one blog post per day, then you will reach the critical mass in 90 to a 100 days. That is the reason of existence of the 100 blogging marathon. What will happen when l reached the 100 posts? Will a miracle happen? If you believe in miracles yes, it will happen, but what l see is that when you reach the 100 posts on your blog, you should aim for the next 100. The latter 100 posts will be easier and will make your blog rock with free organic traffic!
Use a social bookmarking tools
You can’t make a thousand comments on social media, on twitter or in every other social bookmark site by hand, this will take ages! You can use a WordPress plugin that is easier for you to use and do massive bookmarking! There are many social bookmarking plugins for your WordPress blog, such as sociable, but l prefer shareaholic. Shareaholic has and a Firefox plugin that is very useful.
Build internal links.
This step is crucial for the entire strategy to function properly. You need to interlink blog posts and drive all readers to the resource pages. If you want your visitors to read more than one or three posts, take care to interlink every blog posts that have relative subjects. It is a very easy method but it will take some time, and you need to have at least 20 posts on your blog to start using it. If you have more then it would be easier.
Here is the final blogging traffic attraction tip for you.

Seo pressor is one of the best, but if you are in a tight budget, then you need a free plugin. Most of them are very difficult to use for the novice user, or they are not interactive.
