How to get reader for your blog

Everyone who has a blog would like to have a lot of readers so their content get read and also make some money by writing on the blog.

The best way is to get well known but how do you do that fast? It's not easy but you can start by using a service like Ping-O-Matic to add your blog posts to different search engines for blogs, so other people will find your posts or blog.

One other good method is to add your blog to real search engines like Google, yahoo and msn, but remember to just add the blog one time, because adding it more times may result in getting your blog removed from the search engine. Also add you blog to (Open Directory Project) which many of the big search engines uses to index homepages and blogs.

Another good idea is to post on forums and have a link to your blog in your forum avatar, so other reader can go to you blog. You can also quote other people's blogs and provide Trackback links to your blogs.

Furthermore it’s a good idea to post on forums and blogs which have the same topics as your blog and when people see you post often they may start reading on your blog.

Don't use automatic services that add your blog too many search engines because you can be unlucky to add your blog more times and get banned from a search engine and some of these small search engines can be bad for your placement on the big search engines which is the most important ones to have a good placement at.

Remember that it is easier to promote a blog than it is to promote a product because you are not trying to sell something, you are just promoting some good content that may have some value for the potential reader.
