The posts at You Been Blinded and Five Tool Tool were tips -- in list form -- about how to increase traffic, and since we make lists about as often as we ponder if we'd do male athletes, we'll use our new favorite "blockquote" button to credit the work of others.
1. Good MaterialFTT's list:
2. Ass Kissing/Get Links
3. Be Social
4. Spread Love
5. Cheap Heat/Keywords/Window Shoppers/Current Events
1. Ass KissingBoth are solid lists and good tips to get more traffic. We'd also add on that being a commenting slut -- n. one that drops off a comment at many blogs per day -- is really a good way to get your name out there.
2. Current Events
3. Whore Yourself
4. Whore Others
5. Whore Strangers
6. Tech Fun
7. Cheap Heat
Having regular features also helps, in our humble opinion. We think our Blogger Interviews and Would you do...? series are responsible for a lot of our traffic. (The Would you do...? also hits on No. 5 in the first list. For example, our Erin Andrews post gets a ton of hits whenever she's live on ESPN because hornballs are looking her up on the Net so they can rub one out. Our page comes up relatively high in a Google search for her.)
So, what do you folks think? Best ways to increase traffic? Non bloggers, why are you reading certain blogs but not others? Light up the comments section the way you would the secret bathroom at your office.
And, as always with intentionally unfunny posts, above is a spicy picture to prolong your morning wood.
