6. SEO!

Search engines are the very best contributors to increasing your blog’s traffic stream. There are a lot of things you can do to increase your website’s ranking on the search engines – these are called Search Engine Optimization. I recommend you read some articles about it, as it is a very important aspect.

7. Choose a way to make money

You are starting the blog with the intention of earning some bucks from it. The simplest way you will find is Google Adsense, which automatically places ads on your site, and earns you money per clicks. You have to be wise though, as too much ads disrupts readers, and they may lose interest in your site, because they feel you only want to make money from them.

8. Visit other blogs and advertise yours

One of the best ways to attract visitors is commenting on relevant blogs, and linking your website there. This can easily bring visitors that come back often, if they are really interested in the topic.

9. Google Analytics

Not only is it important to bring traffic to your site, but to know where it comes from. By this, you can find out what is working, and what is not. By improving the best traffic sources, you can make it more effective.

10. Choose a niche that you like

Working on a blog requires constant attention, and a lot of time. So choose a topic that you really love, so your work won’t become a stale burden on your shoulders. Also, your readers can sense if you just write because you have to.

I think this list contains very useful tips for beginners, so you will surely make good use of it. Good luck for your blog!
