This article examines ten always Blogger (Blogspot) bloggers can boost site traffic and, sometimes, SEO. Following these steps will increase the likelihood that your website will appear higher in search results on popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN, which will increase the amount of people that visit it.
10 Tips to Increase More Visitors to Your Blogger Blogspot Site
Optimize your title tags for search engines.
One of the most crucial adjustments needed for Blogspot sites is title tag modification because Blogger.com does not by default optimise these for search engines. To demonstrate this, visit a specific post on your blog and take note of how the title bar at the top of your browser displays the blog name first, followed by the post name. Your website will rank lower in search engine results since the first few words of an entry are given more weight by search engines. Fortunately, with a few adjustments, altering the blog and post names is easy.
Blogger generates a URL based on the post’s title each time you publish a new post. It’s crucial to properly write your label as a result. It’s not always best to use permalinks, especially if your title is lengthy. Due to the inclusion of the two keywords “Blogger” and “permalinks,” it is search engine friendly. The title of this article is How to Create Search Engine Friendly Permalinks for Blogger Posts, not Improved Permalinks for Blogger Posts, which may surprise you. I initially used a title that was packed with keywords, but after it was uploaded, I modified it to one that was more descriptive. No matter how many times I alter the title, the initial permalink stays intact.
Add a Social Networking Button to Your Blog
By including a Social Bookmarking button to your website, visitors to your blog will create links to well-known social bookmarking websites like Google, Technorati, Facebook, MySpace, Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Delicious, Furl, Yahoo, and others. As a result, users of your website will be able to spread the word about these links, boosting traffic and encouraging return visits. You may track visitor data and social bookmarking activity by placing a social bookmarking button on your website, which is another benefit.

Sitemap Submission for Popular Search Engines
You must make sure that your Blogger (Blogspot) blog is accurately indexed by important search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN in order to maximise traffic to your website. One option to expedite things is to upload a sitemap to each of the three major search engines. For further details, please refer to my lessons on adding your site’s feed to Google.com and MSN Webmaster Tools, confirming your website, and submitting it to these directories.
Build Quality Links
If you want your website to be ranked highly in Google and other search engines, you must build high-quality inbound links. That doesn’t mean you should exchange links with everyone and anything, as some new webmasters appear to do. But fewer, higher-quality connections from reputable websites will have a much greater impact on your page rank than many, low-quality links. There are several doable strategies for encouraging others to link to your website. First, submitting your website to blog directories is a simple process. For more details on the blog directories I recommend, see my post Submit Your Blogger Blog to Blog Directories. Another strategy for constructing inbound connections is to submit the best of your material to article directories. Participating in forums and other online communities is a third approach. You can leave a comment on those blogs with a link to your website.
Write Quality Content and Post Frequently
If you’ve read any articles regarding blogging and SEO, you’ve probably seen that the importance of high-quality content has been emphasised by writers. I cannot emphasise enough how crucial it is to give visitors a cause to come back. If the information on your website is well-written and educational, half the battle is already won. Post frequently so that visitors are aware of the advantages of being a reader. Spend some time thinking about how you present your material and graphics because doing so will help you come out as a professional. Finally, eliminate grammatical and spelling errors, which stick out like a sore toe and take away from a visitor’s overall pleasant impression of your website.
Ensure Your Content is Keyword Rich
Along with the calibre of your writing, keyword density is another issue to take into account. Your postings are more likely to appear higher in search engine results the more keyword-dense they are. This means that it is crucial to make an effort while writing your content to incorporate relevant keywords and keyword phrases regularly. Don’t go crazy, though, as Google will notice if your pages are filled mostly with keywords. Using keywords and labels, Google Adwords, a free SEO tool, can help you improve your website.
Manage Your Feeds Carefully
In order to maximise their value, feeds must be carefully handled as they help users reach your website. You can also create backlinks by using your website’s feeds. Having backlinks from reputable websites is advantageous and might raise your page ranking. For additional information on how to display backlinks, visit the Blogger Help Article About Backlinks. Ensure that visitors can see the RSS feed icons by placing them prominently on your website. The header of your website is the ideal location for the feed icons. Watch for upcoming tutorials on how to place RSS feed links more successfully.
Optimize Your Use of Images
Most likely, when you insert a picture into a post, you don’t give it a second thought, but files and the alt attribute can help you optimise it. Keep your photo names succinct and to the point. Give your photographs an unique filename rather than something generic like 00045.jpg. The alt attribute lets you control what text appears when a visitor’s pointer is over an image. The alt attribute is shown in its place if for any reason the image is not available. By optimising your alt characteristics, you may raise the likelihood that Google Image Searches will return results for your photographs.
Take Advantage of Web Analytics Services
You should probably investigate how these changes have affected the traffic to your site if you have applied certain tactics to enhance Google, Yahoo, and MSN’s crawling and indexing of your site. But once more, using web analytics tools is a great approach to understand trends and customer sentiment.
