Traffic is directly proportional to the content

When I used to post not very frequently I noticed that I used to have only about 2 or 3 visitors daily and many a time they were not repeat visitors but for the last couple of months I have been posting almost daily and I notice that I have a min of 15 visitors to my site everyday (Metrics from So I have been convinced that the key to driving traffic to your site is the content of your site.

The more content that you have the better are your chances of people finding you in Google. I have found that 50% of my traffic is driven from people who find my site in Google search. This was not the case earlier when I did not have much content on my website. If you are a technology blog then the chances of people finding your site are a lot higher since there are more technical searches in Google. On the other hand other blogs get a fair share of searches too so don't get too worried. The biggest drivers of traffic to my website are software quality, CMM and Training institutes. You can get all this information from the Google analytics site and the registration is free so I advise everyone to get an account.

Google is the number 1 driver of traffic to my site. I have tried out a lot of other ways to get traffic to my site but nothing has been as good as Google. The only way to get to the top of Google is to have good content and have more people viewing your site or linking to your site.

The other thing I am working on is trying to get my blog listed in various blog directories. I have now listed in India Blogs and Blog Rush. Lets see how things work out in driving traffic from there. In the last 2 days since I registered nothing much has happened.

The grounds that I have listed till now are MCH Play ground, Ameerpet Francis (Do not have the contact number but go to the ground and ask for him). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground.

I then analysed what were the things that I should have done in order to have become a successful blogger based on what I have noticed on the ones that have become successful. The final analysis of my study is what I put into that article and it is what I am trying to implement since the last 2 months. Reading the comments it was exhilarating to notice that some of the readers actually thought Darren was writing the post :-). It was also nice to notice that many readers agreed with my analysis and that strengthened my belief that what I have written if followed will work. How did I get to do a guest post on ? A little more than a week ago Darren invited bloggers to do guest pos
