A fairly simple way to boost traffic to you blog is to take part in forums. Search for forums that already have a lot of traffic. This is also more effective if you pu in your 2 cents at forums that are related to your blog. Besides creating a link on the site for search engines to grab, all the thousands of users that surf the busy forum will read past your comment. The curious ones will check out your site, and if your content is valuable enough to them they will continue to return. This free advertising can also establish credibility for your site with the comments you leave on the related forum.
