    probably pretty basic, but I've been blogging like a good un for a while but feel I'm pi$$ing in the wind as the only activity is the tumbleweed blowing past.

    I've heard elsewhere I need to comment on/follow other blogs and hopefully get them to comment on/follow back, the problem seems to be finding anything relevant.

    How do you get folks to follow your blog, any coloured hat techniques welcome. It is a genuine blog which I update manually.
    cheers all

    get a twitter auto submitter plugin and have it tweet every post you make. If you're actually writing quality content that should get some traffic.
    Also, post on blogs with the CommentLuv plugin, it puts links to your blog after your comment.

    If you want to build back links you can use something like the Ping Crawl Wordpress Plugin which will automatically back link on other forums.

    Use this as well as Twitter plugins (Make sure you build up followers every day) and you will be onto a winner!

    research your keywords. get some longtails and base your posts on these to get the long tail traffic.

    und weiter.
    links links links. just build links to your blog. and if targeted links are hard to find because you`re in a tight niche, just get any link you can.

    every link is a link.
