How to get more hits on your blog?

Traffic is the reflection of success of a blog and blogger. A blog can be regarded as successful if it gets more number of hits and it is unsuccessful if it has lesser number of those. This is the reason why every serious blogger is quite obsessed to get a lot of traffic and constantly tries to get more number of hits on his blog. Here in this post I would like to share some of the tips (some new little known and some old goodies) to generate more number of hits on your blog.

First of all I would like to give you a little idea about the basics of traffic. It is quite necessary to get these basic ideas before switching to the strategies to get more hits on your blog. ( you would discover later in this post tat why it is necessary to have those basic ideas)

What is web traffic?

I know you are quite comfortable answering this question if yo are blogging for a while. But let us take a look at the definition of web traffic as defined by wikipedia.

Web traffic is the amount of data sent and received by visitors to a web site. It is a large portion of Internet traffic. This is determined by the number of visitors and the number of pages they visit.
Source: Wikipedia
It is clear from this definition that traffic is a measure of site's activity usually reflected by the number of visitors and number of pageviews visitors generate.

Now the visitors can be of two types-
  • New visitor who has come to your blog for the first time
  • Revisitor who has visited your blog in past
My point of telling all this is, since new visitors and revisitors are separate groups ,so, the strategies you should ploy to get more hits from these group should be separate. Furthermore, The strategies are separate but they go hand in hand and not one at a time.
