Tips to Increase Traffic of your blog

Using good and effective tips and tricks that boost your blog traffic is the first step in achieving a variety of objectives or goals.

Those goals could include, selling products and services, building brand awareness, place yourself as a thought leader or to connect and network. Whatever the objectives are, traffic provides the opportunity to engage and sell. In the past bloggers only had one big tactic. Building an email list.

This is still important despite the allure of social media with all its hype and bluster, real and imagined.  Social media since arriving on the scene has offered bloggers two core and very important capabilities that were not part of the web landscape until social media turned up.
