If you are blogging, you probably want to increase your visitor traffic. If you’re a blawgger, you want to increase traffic to your blog to enhance your profile and hopefully gain clients. This series of posts will teach you how to register, claim, and index your blog with the crucial services to enhance your visibility and increase traffic.
Blog Top Sites
This service currently indexes over 35,000 blogs. No, it’s not the largest blog index, but we’re starting here. Why? Blog Top Sites just added a “Law” category.
This is the hot new domain in which to get your blawg listed. Previously, the only decent category would’ve been “Business.” The fact that Blog Top Sites has added “Law” shows its recognition of the bursting market for legal blogs.
How to register your legal blog
First, you need to register an account at Blog Top Sites. Here is the registration form.
After you have registered, you simply go to the “User CP” page, and then “Add Blog.” Here, you can enter your blog’s name, URL, description, and select a category.
Once you have added your blog to the Blog Top Sites directory, you need to put the HTML tracking code on your blog. This ensures that you actually own the blog. To do this, click “Get HTML Code” from the “User CP.” Copy the code from the text box.
Finally, you need to paste the HTML tracking code into your blog. You can put this anywhere, but it is best to put it in your template, so the code will appear on every page. I believe that only pages that contain the code will be tracked and counted by Blog Top Sites.
Watch the visitors roll in
Anyone who’s been blogging for very long knows that headline is a lie. Your traffic won’t jump with this little process. However, you will likely get a few new visitors by being included in this directory. Plus, every link to your blog boosts your search engine ranking a teenie bit. In other words, every little bit helps.
As I mentioned at the top, this is Part 1 in a series on registering your legal blog (read Part 2). I plan to document several tips like this to help you gain a little more traffic and boost those visitor numbers. Be sure to stay plugged in here for more tips.
