I wrote a previous post about blogcatalog being better then mybloglog. The more i use blogcatalog, the more im convinced of this. I don’t even log in to mybloglog anymore cause i don’t need to. Blog catalog is faster and has a way more active member base.
Here’s a list of things you should do to increase your traffic from blogcatalog.
1. Add friends. The great thing about blog catalog is that they don’t place a daily limit on adding friends. You can add 15, 50, 500 friends if you wanted to. Adding friends does two things. The friend that you add will see that you added them and might be curious to check out your site. Also, it makes your link more visible to other people on blogcatalog. The more friends you have, the more traffic you could get. It’s like google adsense. The more ad impressions you have, the more clicks you’ll get.
2. Get involved in discussions. They have a pretty active forum at blogcatalog. It’s almost like a chatroom. It’s a good way to make some blogger friends, and build interest in your blog. Don’t just try it once and stop. Try it a few times and you’ll most likely start up a great discussion. If you do that, you’ll really see a difference in your traffic.
3. Join communities, this is the the as adding friends.
4. Visit and rate other peoples blogs. They will most likely reciprocate the gesture. The more you visit, the more visits you’ll get.
That doesn’t seem very hard right? Try it and i can almost promise that’ll you see some major traffic improvements.
