Having a Website does not automatically guarantee having traffic, even if you register the site with appropriate search engines. You have to keywording to rank high in searches and find keyword combinations and variations.
How this can be done in a Weblog? First of all, avoid any “strange systems” to improve your ranking. As example, writing a post putting 20 times the same word so you can use it as keyword. It probably won’t be useful on the long run and will ruin your reputation as Blogger.
Focus on the posts titles, finding a good balance between a good title for your readers and a good title for the search engines. Check also the directory structures and permalinks. Must have the full title on them!
Add individual keywords and descriptions for each post. Means you don’t have to use the main page description and keywords for all the posts. Each post must have its own specific description.
The descriptions must be very clear and explanatory of the Blog article. Keywords must be words contained in the article but first write the article naturally and only then think about the keywords. Natural posts are loved by readers, believe me!
This will boost your reputation and word of mouth will do the rest.
The next important thing to do is focusing on the backlinks. They will really improve your ranking. Boosting link popularity is a great way to success! LinkWorth can really help you in this! So check it as soon as possible.
Of course word of mouth will bring more backlinks, means links to your Weblog from fans and other Bloggers who love your posts!
Last but not least, the issue about submitting to the directories. They are useful, as it’s useful using shopping directories for e-commerce sites. But if you build a good backlinks network, you just need a few of them.
