Increasing Traffic on the blog: Making Blog Popular : Some Tips and Tricks
I have analyzed and/ or interviewed few popular bloggers and came out with some highlighting aspects on how to make your blog popular.

Five Major Methods/ Ways:
This I discussed with my collegue Prof. Ray Titus, he has the blog:
http://buyerbehaviour.blogspot.com/ What we came to the conclusion are put in five points below:
1. Content, Consistency and Focus,
People always find tips to make a blog/website popular and get a good traffic towards their website. One major tip to make a blog popular is content, content and content. Write a lot of contents in your blog. Write more regularly and you will get a good traffic from search engines. If you write once in a month or once in a week it will take longer to make blog/site popular. So keep writing more regularly and also write good quality content. Also check spelling of your content by spell checker in any editor before publishing your blog post. Don’t think for good traffic if you have only a few posts in your blog first increase number of post in your blog and then try to find how to make a blog popular and get good traffic.
2. Layout and Looks,
3. URL yes the title itself should be crisp and appealing
4. Continuous Research for to up date information and some interesting material to be placed on the blog.
5. Features and Key words that make blog appear on google: PageRanking is a function of Google that measures the quality of a website on a scale of 0 to10. Higher the Quality of your site Higher the Page Rank would be. To improve PageRank of your site or blog, you have to improve traffic towards your website/blog.
For that start exchanging links, Submit your blogs to blog directories and put comments on other's sites and leave your URL there. Your comment must be appropriate and related to content. Avoid comments like "Nice post.....", "Great..........", "Very Good........", "Excellent........". Try to comment as good as you can. Your comment must be descriptive.
Thus, Submit your blog to different blog directories in appropriate category. If you submit any blog to blog directories, always mention about the blog directory in your blog. If you do so visitors would come to know about that blog directory and blog directory would become popular. Also do one more thing, add a link to that directory into your blog. Because if directory would become famous your blog will also becomes more famous. More visitors click in the directory more visitors visit your blog.
