    Hi Guys,

    Ive just started a couple blogs, and Ive been getting some great info from this forum for a few months now.

    I'm seeing alot of info here on link wheels and book marking, back links etc etc

    Just wondering if I can get a couple of the basics-

    What is the best way to get traffic to your blog and good rankings?

    Link Wheels?
    Lots of back links?
    Social book marking?

    How does this work? Is there a building block method? ie Building a link wheel is useless unless you do Back links first for instance- eg..

    Step 1- Get 100 Back links
    Step 2- Build Link Wheel
    Step 3- Social book mark?

    Just wanting to get a clearer 30,000 ft picture of how I should be setting my things up to drive traffic to my blogs? (the correct way)

    Cheers

    DK

    I would check out the 30DC videos. They have some great ones on the questions you're asking. It helped me build a good foundation but is a little limited in scope, that's where BHW comes in.

    BHW is the house i'm going to build on that foundation.

    How about just adding some more content. You need something for people to see when they get there. Depending upon your niche and how you intend to make money, you'll want repeat visitors via RSS subscriptions.

    Seriously everyone wants to spend hours and days working on BH tactics trying to get more backlinks when its almost pointless if you do not have good solid content on your site.

    First off I would spend a few hours a day while hunting down those links actually writing some good interesting posts. This will naturally attract links and also provide your site with content that your AdSense ads will be able to target better and result in better pay offs.

    After you have some decent content then go get those backlinks! But remember Google judges and ranks your site based off of the neighborhood that you are linking to, so if you have 1000 backlinks all from pharmaceutical spam or Porn sites Google will consider that a bad neighborhood and devalue your site even more which results in lower placement in the rankings and you just shot yourself in the foot loosing all that possible traffic.

    Mix it up legitimate links with your other kinds, makes it more natural.

    actually i just made a health site and i'm only putting the links to one of my site which is already indexed by Big G and i'm not doing any social bookmarks, linking, etc but then after 3-4 days there lot's of visitors come from big G

    This is the screenshot of my site AWSTATS
    Everyday organic visitors are increasing drastically

    [​IMG]

    At the SS you can look that at 18-23 August i'm starting to make over the site and on August 24 i still didn't got any visitors but after that the visitors had come and increasing everyday :)

    From this experience i can said if you put your blog url to some site (at least 1 site) which had high PR at least PR 3 then big G will starting to indexing your blog and you will start getting visitors :)

    Keep posting content, keep pinging after posting, keep building links, keep bookmarking, keep reading and keep doing.

    Keep on keeping on and it will happen (and if it doesn't learn from your mistakes and try again!)

    Cheers for the answers guys-

    So Ive got Jeff Johnsons free plugin-

    Does the blog automatically ping the search engines each time I post? or do I have do to it manually? (does the blog automatically ping the search engines in general if I have the All in one Seo pack?)

    What does everyone use to track their blog traffic here? Just Google Analytics? Or something different?

    With new blogs- should I post say 10-20 articles in one shot? or put them on a timer to go out every 3 days or something ?

    Cheers

    Dk

    Nice stats for no backlinking. Using unique articles or spun articles?

    in my experience there is no quick way to get quality traffic to a blog other than hard work.

    But as others said already, the important thing is to get quality content on your blog first then think about getting traffic.

    Also research your keywords thoroughly first as well. Google is your best source of traffic.

    Here in this forum you will find many free ebooks to help you learn about link building. You can also increase your site PR with a high PR backlink
