    Arrow How to find readers for your blog?

    Perhaps one of the most discussed topic there ever was, yet the question will always remain.

    Once again, Darren Rowse, professionnal as he is, impressed me very much with this post:

    http://www.problogger.net/how-to-fin...for-your-blog/

    There, he lists all the articles he ever wrote on how to get people to read your website. I won't copy and paste every single tip he shares, But I just wanted to know what are YOUR suggestions to get those readers... and how to convert them into loyal ones.

    Now, how do You find readers for your own blog?

    Not too sure about that. I think people just randomly click links on Twitter and never return.

    If you have a bunch of followers that interact with you, chances are they will visit your blog to learn more about you. In turn, if you link effectively (i.e. with a catchy title) then you can get people to read your blog posts and actually interact with your blog.

    I find Twitter incredibly useful for finding readers. The trick is to find the right readers. You need to target Twitter users - use the search facility to find the people that are Tweeting about topic similar to your blog.

    For example, if you have a blog about Apple, then you would search for Apple, iPod, iMac, Steve Jobs, iTunes, etc. - i.e. keywords that pertain to what your blog is about. Categories or tags are probably a good place to start. Take a look at the first page of search results and pick out a handful of interesting people and follow them. Do this once a day and soon you will be following a bunch of people that will have a similar interest in Apple, and hopefully some of these will follow you back. Every now and again "prune" the people you are following - if they don't follow you back or you don't find them useful then get rid of them to prevent your account looking like a spammers account.

    Then the trick is to Tweet regularly about Apple (or whatever) and post some of your links. Make sure your Twitter bio is filled in and make sure you have a picture too - nothing says spammer more than a default Twitter picture.

    Hope this helps!

    Chat rooms are also a good place. If you target the right ones..bingo!

    I used to love Mybloglog.com. People are ready to network there, and it's easy to find your niche.
