When you are blogging you should try to stick to a couple basic principles. The quality of the content you write will play a large role in the traffic you get and how successful your blog is. The other thing you must do is work at posting articles on a consistent basis.

Fresh unique content is a big key to getting more traffic.

Here are 6 ways to get traffic to your blog.

3. Getting RSS subscribers is a fantastic way to keep people current whenever you update your content. This can bring people back to your blog and is a very good alternative to email marketing for list building as well.

4. Post comments on other people's blogs and include a link back to your own. This will give you a backlink which will help your search engine ranking, as well as give you traffic from the readers of the other blog.

5. Do article marketing and submit your articles to the top directories online. In your resource box include a link to your blog. As you build up lots of articles online you will continue to get traffic from these links for years to come.

6. Using social media such as video, audio, social networking, discussion forums, podcasting, and so on, can drive traffic to your blog on a daily basis if you do it right.

In summary these were 6 ways to get more traffic to your blog. The key is to work hard at writing interesting content to make people want to come back to it again and again.
