1. Comment at popular blogs
The best way to gain an audience is to become part of a community. Find popular blogs that cover a similar topic and participate in the comment section. If you've got good things to say, expect people to come looking for more...at your blog.
2. Submit to respected directories
First things first. Don't submit your blog to just any directory. First identify about five strong general directories, and then five niche directories. You may have to pay for these services, but doing so gets you extra exposure at many levels. You'll have to figure out the niche directories on your own. However, we've listed what we view as the top 4 general directories:
4. Blog Flux
5. Blog Catalog
3. Buy Text Links
The fastest and easiest way to do get results is to buy text links. The most reputable and effective text link company is Text Link Ads. They have tens of thousands of sites from which to pick from. Just find similarly themed sites with good prices and you're all set.
4. Google AdWords
Purchasing AdWords for strategic keywords related to your blog can bring in a substantial number of highly targeted new visitors. Before you use AdWords, consider doing research to make sure you are picking highly targeted keywords and not wasting your money.
5. Social Bookmarking Sites
Viral link building through social bookmarkers, social networks and social news sites can be very effective in promoting one's blog. For this to work out, bloggers need to know how to write attention-grabbing headlines and should be able to connect to fellow users of social media. Blog logistics providers like bLogics can also provide this service.
