Mr Goldie, if in fact you are a Mr, maybe a Ms, your blog is fine, but such early days….you’ve got to earn the accolades in the blogosphere and it takes years believe me. The ‘tricks’ of getting traffic are out there but they don’t work, there are no shortcuts. What works is a dedicated posting schedule, an authentic voice, a good overview of your subject and/or topics, original content that other blogs will want to host on their own site, etc etc etc. You must become a journalist and do your research too. The Moose site is now heavily-trafficked after two years of at least 3 posts a day. 852 blogs link to the Moose and we get about 63,000 unique visitors a month…that’s uniques, not just our fine regular readers such as yourself. To get there I have put in on average about 3 hours a day every day for two years. Keep at it and you’ll be fine. BTW, my local top picks are up on Indie Music Portland
WOW! I HAD NO IDEA PAMPELMOOSE WAS SO BIG IN THE BLOGOSPHERE... Maybe I need to beef up on my online stalking techniques!
