How to attract more clicks to your blog posts

Okay, I have to admit I was clearing my inbox and ran across this topic.  I won’t say who posted this, but I disagree with what this gal is trying to say.  I really think the way to get more blog clicks is simple, but takes commitment from you.

First, you must link all of your sites together.  I’m talking about your blog, Facebook, Twitter and any other social media site you’re on where you can do this.  You need to go in and set the settings so what you post to your blog will automatically posted to FB and Twitter and your Amazon page and who knows what else (this depends on the individual person).

Of course, you can figure out that this step alleviates the need for you to post your latest post to your social media sites.  It’s all done in one-step.

After this is set up, you can still post to FB and Twitter, if you have something to say that is unrelated to your latest blog post.

Next, when the A to Z Challenge rolls around each April, you need to PARTAKE in this event.  You can post about anything you desire, but the hard part is posting everyday in April (Sundays excluded).  YES, you can write your posts ahead of time and they can be short.

After you sign up for this, it’s your job to visit and comment on five blogs a day.  This may sound like a pain, but it’s FUN and you’ll meet many people out there you never knew existed and strike up a camaraderie with some of them.  They’ll visit your blog and, if they like what they read, they’ll be back to read more of your posts.

It’s so simple, and really this takes minimal work on your part.

Remember, you’ll have to disable the CAPTCHA on you blog before this challenge, if you still have it enabled.  I do have a post about how to do that if you have a blogger blog.  You can find that here

That’s all there is to it really.  Keep up the reading and commenting throughout the year and you’ll discover lifelong friends.
