How do I generate more traffic to a blog that I started six months ago ?
Generating traffic doesn't have to be this insurmountable task for anyone. The first thing that you need to do is ensure that you have enough content to sustain your readers when they visit your blog. Each time you post do the little things like joining a place like Onlywire so that you're pushing your content to nearly 50 other outlets automatically. If you're using Wordpress, install social plugins that allow you to automatically push your content to outlets that have other audiences that may be interested in your content that aren't already familiar with you or your blog.
With that said, there are hundreds of strategies that are within your grasp to drive massive traffic to your blog. It just takes a little time and effort.
