How does one attract traffic to one’s blog? While writing my recent Joomla! 2.5 tutorial, I noticed that my traffic was dramatically climbing. It started on the weekend, and Sunday through Tuesday were all record-breaking days (new busiest day each day)! Not only that, but a Google search for ‘joomla 2.5 on mamp’ listed a link to this blog 2nd and 3rd down from the top! So, what would bring readers to this (sort of) small blog?
There are all kinds of businesses out there offering ‘SEO’ (Search Engine Optimization) services, where you pay to get better traffic ‘naturally’, but I achieved natural high rankings without even trying! And I did this by subconsciously following almost all of the SEO tips on the web – high keyword count and correct tagging.
