3 Scattered Ideas on Blog Traffic Improvement
In December 2005, Darren Rowse at Problogger shared 11 excellent tips on how to increase page views at your blog.  His tips still hold water today.  Reading those classic tips again sparked three thoughts in me today:

1. In June I posted three times each weekday instead of my customary one for about three weeks, but my traffic didn't triple.  It increased somewhat, but it didn't even double.  Just a thought for those of you who are wondering how posting frequency correlates to blog traffic.

2. Another key to improving your page views is to think about the real purpose of your blog.  What do you want your blog to do for your readers?  Give them information?  Motivate them to blog about you?  Send them off to other sites?  Have 'em click on ads?  (Hopefully that's not the main purpose.)  I doubt that page views should be anyone's ultimate goal.  If you want to make money blogging, still - think about why.

3. The better you track page views, the more easy it is to think about improving your traffic.  So get a good stats program like Sitemeter or Google Analytics and use it to see what your traffic is currently like.

Great stuff Easton - I've been thinking about inplementing some series posts (perhaps even breaking down my really long "Lessons" post, as you weren't the only one to comment that it was a bit much to absorb all at once. Thanks as always for the great resources and great ideas :) (your blogtipping reminder was uncannily timed, btw)

Thanks Wendy. You've actually reminded me to continue a post series here that I've let sit unattended for too long.

thanks for the links! and gongrats on another great blog tipping day:)
