    Hey guys, I just started my own Blog about everything health related. So basically my niche is everything from Weight Loss - Treatment for Acne. At the moment, I'm writing articles on tips of basically anything health related. Do you guys have any tips for me to get some traffic? As I have no traffic at all, and eventually if I want to write reviews about products from clickbank and sell them on my Blog, I can do that right?

    What blog software are you using? Some seo in a specific niche would be good

    I'm using WordPress on a WordPress blog, kinda want to just get some views before I start actually shelling out money for a website and all.
    I have no idea what this SEO thing is about and how to do it? I just put some keywords into my articles and hope that catches people eye, but idk how to get my page rank up or something.
    I don't mind learning something, as I will work hard to incorporate it into ym blog!

    Health is a great market, but have you done your keyword research? Without a proper keyword research you may not get constant flow. Yahoo answers is good for some initial traffic. Do blog commenting, guest blogging, articles syndication, and social networking. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    How am I supposed to use keywords? Do I look for highly searched for words and use them in my article? Is that it? And I've been advertising on Yahoo Answers, and my account just got put on hold haha. For Blog commentating, should I go on other blogs with similar niches and post my blog there while giving an insightful answer? And What is articles syndication. And for social networking, should I make a random FB account and add a lot of people and just spam them with my Blog?
    Thanks for your help.

    I am bit confused. As someone mentioned above that whether you're focusing on Weight Loss or Acne because they're two different niches. IDK whether you have thorough keyword research because weight loss niche has become a very common niche. In order to get traffic first of all try generating high quality unique content and once you're done with this, then start using some basic blog promotion techniques, like Minarik said using Yahoo answers will be a great option. All the best with your quest. Cheers :)

    Do your keyword research and build content that focuses around those keywords.

    hey man, forget about just blogging. Make some videos, use other books as a foundation for all you talk about. Read "crush it" and have fun with it. And experiment a bunch of what you talk about on friends or yourself... people love that.
