1- Visit related blogs and comment. Don't forget to get linked back.

2- Keep the the length of the blogposts short. (But not too short).

3- Try to blog what's much sought for.

4- Have a good number of categories.

5- Highlight the important facts within the blogpost using bold and italic form.

If you don't mind me asking. Why is it that blogposts should be short? Is it because readers might be bored with very long posts?

Exactly!

But by short I didn't mean incomplete posts. Posts should be concise and brief.

Ping the blog?

Hi there,

I am very new to blogging. What exactly does ping the blog mean? As far as I know that happens automatically in WordPress, which is what I am using. In other words, when I write a post, WordPress automatically lets technorati and others know about the post.

Is this correct?

Also, what is a trackback?

Thank you,

John

What Qurratulain mean is it helps search engines crawl your page easier with a short but descriptive and informative post! And the mportant words emphasized!

Right, pinging allows the community to display the updated information from your blog on their board.

I stumble every blog post I make and this usually sends a nice wave of visitors to my blog.

Also submitting articles with a link to your blog in the resource box is another method.
