Three Quick Tips for Attracting Traffic to Your Blog

A guest post contributed by Katheryn Rivas, who regularly writes for

Search engine optimization (SEO) has been the hot topic in all areas of the blogosphere for years now. Now that creating and maintaining a blog has become fairly simple, bloggers and wannabe bloggers are all about getting readers and creating traffic. While there are dozens and dozens of tips and tricks to mastering SEO available on the web, these three tips are simple and often overlooked.

One of the most important aspects of optimizing your blog is learning to link intelligently. This is an area that people have significant trouble with (and for good reason). Linking in a way that appears both natural and unobtrusive can be tricky. When you link out in your blog posts, you should always be aware of how the links are related to the content you provide. Not everything that you discuss in you blog will warrant a link. You must determine where it is appropriate to use convention to link and where a little more creativity is necessary. The biggest deterrent in a blog is over-linking, however it is also important to realize that under-linking can have very dire consequences as well. If you mention Wikipedia in a blog post, it is obviously not necessary to link to Wikipedia in general because everyone on the internet knows what it is. However, if you mention a specific page from Wikipedia it is not only good that you link to that page, in fact it is necessary.

Cloud Computing - for The NOT SO Technical Netizens

For the last several months, I have been using and suggesting my readers to use OpenDrive to host their files online, which also allows them to hotlink their files; An important requirement if you want to host and embed MP3 players in to your blogs.
While using this service I got a chance to use their cloud computing based OpenDrive Desktop too. Here, in this article, I am not going to tell you the technical basics of Cloud Computing, viz. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS etc. but just the basics - how can a person with a PC and an Internet connection get the benefits of it. Before I explain "how to use OD-Desktop", have a look on the basics...

So, what exactly is Cloud Computing?
In cloud computing all your data is stored in clouds (okay, it's not actually "clouds", but these are "servers" installed in several countries across the world). The data is updated in real-time when you update the files on your PC (provided you have an active Internet connection). And finally, you can access these up-to-date files from anywhere & anytime.

5 New Official Dynamic Blogger Templates

* Speed: download images as you view them, not all at once in advance
* Interactivity: there are now more ways to experience and engage with blog content

And the best part is, you don't lose your current template, to use these new dynamic templates.
