2. Join a Blogging Community

If you have a Blog then you're part of a blogging community. Introduce yourself by commenting on the various blogs that are part of your network. Commenting on other blogs is a great way to increase traffic to your blog or website.

3. Forums and Bulletin Boards

There are a plethora of forums and bulletin boards throughout the Internet. You can not only leave a comment about a specific topic but most will allow you to post your website or Blog URL.

4. Sign Up For Newsletters

When you sign up for a newsletter you're obviously helping the owner to promote his or her business. A good newsletter however, will create a win-win situation because your site gets exposure as well. Only sign up for a few quality newsletters that don't resort to spamming, otherwise your mailbox will be cluttered with junk.

5. Write About It

There are hundreds of writing sites that you can sign up for at no cost. Focus on the major writing sites like Hubpages, Squidoo, Helium, Bukisa, InfoBarel, Text Broker, and ListMy5. Write articles that highlight your website and your blog. Add a resource link to some of the articles you write, this creates a back link to your website. Make sure the link is relevant to the article otherwise it falls under the guise of spamming.
