Creating a blog is an easy job, but it's quite difficult to build a successful blog and boost your blog readership. You will amaze to see that, more than 200 million blogs have been created on WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and other blogs and they are growing rapidly. Now the question is, how you attract visitors to your new blog?. Secondly, attracting visitors to your blog should not be your priority, your priority should be to engagethose visitors on your blog. It means you visitors should also read your stuff. For this you have to keep these top 10 tips in your mind.

1. Update Your Blog Often: Well, the first thing you should keep in your mind is that, you have to update your blog at least twice a week. If you want to share more than twice a week its better too, because the more content you got the more readers will read your stuff.

2. Network: Networking with other blogging community and blogger is another good technique to boost your blog readership. Through networking, your blog will be visible on different places, like bloggers might recommend your posts and tutorials and readers will integrate with your posts.

3. Participate in Communities: Why not you just go to participate in communities and bring some readers for your blog. You will amazed to see that, people spend millions of dollar on Google AdWord to advertise their website and blogs. Instead of spending money, better to participate on forums, websites, blogs, and social media communities, because already community is there to see what you got.  

4. Link To Other Sites: As you are familiar about backlinks, through which your posts can be visible on search engines. Link to other sites got two main advantages, first of all the owner of the site will visit your site, secondly you get lots of backlinks from that site. So link to other sites to boost up your readership.

5. Internal Links: Well, if you want to decrease BounceRate of your blog, all you need to add internal links to your posts, through which the readers will engage on your site.

6. Give Something Valuable: This is again a good technique to boost your blog readership. Giving something valuable not means you have to spend money rather it means, you have give away an eBook, an audio file, screencast or a report. You have to offer these stuffs for those who can subscribe to your blog. Majority of bloggers are using this technique to collect some emails for their blogs and websites.

7. Submit Your Site To Google, Bing and Yahoo: Don't think your site will automatically visible on search engines, you have to submit your site to Google, Bing, an Yahoo webmaster tools for indexing your posts for search engines. Secondly you have to search your site on Google and Bing, through which your site will visible on search engines quickly.

8. Make Your Content SEO Friendly: You don't have to update your blog daily, if you are getting much traffic from search engines. Therefore you have to learn A-Z about SEO, better to read this SEO Guide for optimizing your content. SEO is a good technique to compel a visitor to read your stuff.

9. Share More Than Once: Try to promote your blog as much as you can. Social networks are the best place to submit your articles, use Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and Stumble Upon to boost your blog readers. This is a technique I have learned from KISSmetrics . They have given a social sharing schedule timeline for Twitter, Facebook, Google and Tumbler. So let's see when and how to post on these social networks.

10. Setup RSS Feed: RSS Feed is the best way to update your readers. Whenever you publish an article, they will be able to access it through RSS Feed. On WordPress you get RSS Feeds as default on your blog, you don't need to add it again.

And finally to see the engagement of readers on your blog, Install Google Analytics: Analytic results are true pictures of your site. Where you can find visitor's demography, interest, page visits, old vs new visitors, and many more, through which you will be able to see, on which field you have to work on. If your bounce rate is increasing or returning visitors are decreasing, then you have to create quality of content with an attractive theme. Google analytics will see all your blog engagement and give you a true picture of your site. You should check out Google analytics at least within a week and figure out all those blog weaknesses and work on all those weaknesses. Then it will boost your blog readership.
