Idiots Guide to Increasing Blog Traffic - Part 3

I've recently applied what I learned on this blog to more fun pursuits, my songwriting website and blog. My current focus is on increasing traffic. This is more difficult with music sites due the huge number of sites out there. What I have done so far is:

1) Registered with major search engines
2) Optimized website metatags
3) Use del.icio.us for keyword tagging
4) Use keywords in every posting
5) Comment on other bloggers sites and in discussion forums
6) Contribute articles to key websites

I've seen a slow and steady increase with each of these items. What's really great is that I've been asked by a few musicians to help them increase their traffic and better position their websites. Should be fun!

Here's a free blog traffic exchange tool that basically lets you look at a page full of pictures, then hover over one to learn more about them. If you like what you see, you can click through. It also adds a layer of popularity to the mix by delivering the highest trafficed people to the top of the list.
