Traffic Through Blog Directories (Directory Submission)
There are tons of web directories that allow you to submit your blog to them at no cost to you. You get traffic from directories in two ways:
1. It will create backlinks to your blog. The more backlinks you have to your website, the higher the Search Engines will rank your blog in the search results when someone searches for keywords related to your blog.
2. People who are searching the directories will find your blog when they enter the keywords related to your blog.
The problem with directories is that you need to submit to hundreds of directories to create a good traffic flow. If you do this manually, it is very time consuming.
Instead of doing it manually I suggest you could use Directory Submitter, a free software you can use to submit your blogs to blog directories and Search Engines.
Considering the software is free, it actually works pretty well.
