9. Web Rings – A web ring is a group of blogs with a common interest that refer traffic to one another. There are many of these dedicated to blogging on a variety of topics. They don’t bring heaps of hits, but I have found a few great blogs by being a part of such rings. Rings generally involve adding some code too your blog template, but once this is done its not something you have to do anything for to upkeep.
There are literally thousands of webrings you can be a part of, take a look at WebRing to find one that suits your blog – or if you can’t find one start your own. As per usual, moderation is the key, if you join too many you might clutter your page with them.
10. Add an RSS feed to your blog – This is also known as Syndication and is a little technical. Its not something I fully understand. However I know that my RSS feed is responsible for sending an increasing amount of traffic my way from readers using News Aggregators. I’m not the best person to explain this so I’ll refer you to this article about syndication. It is longish and a tad technical, but if you follow the instructions its not that hard and well worth the effort.
11. List your site on Portals – There are a growing number of sites which exclusively list blogs. If you want people to find you its worth submitting your blog to be listed on them. Some focus on specific topics while others list blogs on a wide variety of topics (like Eaton Web and Globe of Blogs). Other portals like BlogShares and Blog Street also list a lot of blogs in different ways which might increase your blogs profile.
