I am often asked what is the most effective method of driving traffic to a blog is and how to get the traffic consistently. I have tried every possible formula I could think of for more than a year. I took more than one blog class every week for over a year and tried every single technique that was presented.

Some things worked other techniques didn’t even make a dent. What makes a technique effective or worthwhile? Try Googling your name and see how many results there are. Then install Alexa’s Toolbar and keep track of your ranking. When your Google results become more than 100,000 or 1,000,000 and your Alexa ranking becomes less than 1 million, then what you’re doing is effective.

PR Techniques

Public Relations is how most authors gain visibility. There are magazines, radio and television opportunities for every type of author. It is what will make the difference between getting your book out there in a big way versus having to haul your own book around to all the books stores and signings.

The are many PR agencies that specialize in working with authors. When you use an agency, they engage their contacts to help you get more visibility faster.

Any technique that garnishes attention to your book falls under the umbrella of Public Relations or Publicity.
