Lessons on Getting More Traffic and Subscribers
Pick the Brain has a list of 27 lessons he learned on his way to getting 3000 visits a day and 2200 RSS feed subscribers.
Some of them are things I have come across myself in my blogging and others are things I had not thought about.
Here are a few from the list:
- Make it as easy as possible for people to subscribe to your RSS feed. Subscribing is the best thing a reader can do.
- Offer a full feed, even if it means people visit the site less often. A person reading you is always better than a person not reading you. Make it easy.
- Listen carefully to every piece of feedback but donâ€™t be a slave to it. Most people donâ€™t know anything. Your blog is your brainchild. It wonâ€™t work if you try to satisfy everyone.
- Make people think. It doesnâ€™t happen very often and they wonâ€™t easily forget it.
The full list is definitely worth bookmarking for reading, especially when you are feeling like you are out of ideas or passion for your blog.
