Blog Carnivals can increase your blog traffic. It has been a favorite service of many bloggers. And has been one the best strategies I've used for bringing in new visitors. Anytime a blogger has asked me about how to get more readers, this is one of my first suggestions.
There are 2 reasons why you will benefit from this service
1. You will get more visitors to your site – People reading each carnival issue will click through to read the different posts featured. Some of them will decide to check out what you have published. I'm surprised when ever I look at my analytics to see how much traffic is generated from these carnivals.
2. The second is by building back links – When you posts are published they will be getting a one way link. This is considered one of the best links to get for SEO. The search engines like to see one way links from other sites. To them this means your content is worth ranking.
However, it's really not enough to just submit your posts to a few carnival publishers. You will get some back links, and traffic if you do this a useful of times. But, I would suggest you do it more often.
Consistently submit your posts
The real power of this service is to keep submitting. As you make this a regular part of your activities a couple of things will start happening. Blog Carnival publishers and readers will over time become familiar with your writing, and start to know, like and trust you. You will start to see more direct traffic and more of your posts will get published by the hosts.
Add this as a regular part of your traffic generation activities. You will see why this powerful strategy has become a favorite of many bloggers. Put it on your to do list and make this a habit.
