Increasing Traffic and Technorati Authority Through Forums
Posted on 05. Nov, 2008 by Julius.
Bloggers are always eager to increase their traffic and to reach a broader audience. Most people do not know how to do that, especially people that are new to the blogging world.
This is the problem! Beginners are the ones that really need more traffic and a higher technorati authority but they do not know how to achieve it. Already established bloggers already know the tricks but they do not need to use them since they are generating enough traffic already.
Use Forums to Increase Traffic and Technorati Authority
Forums are in general a great way to increase your traffic. But in this article I am talking about one particular forum that increases your Technorati authority and your traffic – Bloggeries. It is a forum made for people that are new to the blogging world – as the name suggests.
Bloggeries contains a lot of useful features. There is one particular section that is especially useful for beginners. It is called Show Off Your Blog!. Usually people create a thread there and ask other bloggers how they like the site or the design and what they could improve. This is what you should do too
Note: A rule of the forum does not allow you to create a thread until you have 10 posts! Keep this in mind.
Because of this start by helping out other bloggers and posting useful comments. Use the introduction page to introduce yourself to other bloggers – it is a good way to get to know new people.
By creating a new thread you increase your Technorati authority by 1, at least in the Show Off Your Blog section. The other benefit is some additional traffic being generated through the thread.
One last tip. Create a signature to which you add the url of your blog. When you post a comment this signature is automatically appended to the end of your post. Because of that it might generate additional traffic.
