There are many tips that can help drive traffic to your blog. Follow these simple tips to increment your blog visits and increase the number of potential readers.

•    Optimize the tags

Tags are easily noticed by search engines. To improve the visibility of your articles you must make proper use of tags.  Don’t abuse of them and concentrate on those that really matter. Tags also help readers find your blog when they perform searches on popular blog search engines.

•    Write Well and Write Often

The first step to building your blog’s audience is updating your blog with useful content. To maintain the interest and loyalty of your readers, make sure you have something meaningful to say to them and say it often. Remember that the content you write is what will keep readers coming back for more.

•    Improves permalinks

Ensure that your blog permanent links are clear and provide the necessary information. The URL’S must be friendly with search engines showing the categories, the name of the post or the date that it was published.

•    Use internal links

When you write a post reminder make internal links that point to the labels or categories of your blog, for example.  The anchor text (text that appears in the link), should include keywords that are referenced by the content that you are linking to.  This way you will get the reader to spend more time on your blog and also he will become a returning user if the content is of interest.

•    Create a site map

Search engines will find your blog quickly and effectively, if you create a map of your blog that updates automatically when you add new content.  If you use WordPress as a publishing platform, you can use the following plugin: Google Sitemap Generator, which will greatly ease you’re work load.

What is GIZMODO about?

Gizmodo is a technology weblog about consumer electronics. It is part of the Gawker Media network run by Nick Denton. It’s known for up-to-date coverage of the technology industry and the personal, humorous, sometimes very inappropriate writing style of the contributors.

The blog, launched in 2002, was originally edited by Peter Rojas, but he was recruited by Weblogs, Inc. to launch their similar technology blog Engadget. By mid-2004, Gizmodo and Gawker together were bringing in revenue of approximately $6,500 per month.

In 2005, VNU and Gawker Media formed an alliance to republish Gizmodo across Europe, with VNU translating the content into French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and adding local European-interest material.

In April 2007, Allure Media launched Gizmodo Australia, under license from Gawker Media and incorporating additional Australian content.

In November 2007, the Dutch magazine license was taken over by HUB Uitgevers.

A Gizmodo blogger captured the first photos from the floor of CES 2007, and according to Reuters, journalists at the (simultaneous) Macworld debated whether Gizmodo or Engadget had the better live coverage of Steve Jobs’s 2007 keynote.

Apple, Inc.‘s Steve Jobs noted that Gizmodo was his favorite gadget blog, further fueling a long-standing feud between Gizmodo and Engadget.

A videographer for Gawker Media, Gizmodo’s publisher, disrupted several presentations held at CES 2008 by secretly turning off flatscreen TVs using TV-B-Gone remotes. This resulted in the videographer, Richard Blakeley, being barred from CES 2008, and any future CES events.

In September 2008, Gizmodo Brazil was launched with Portuguese content.

The current main editor of Gizmodo is Brian Lam.

My question is… How famous is the blog gets after they had found the next generation of the Iphone???

In October 2009, security software developer Sophos detected embedded scareware in fake Suzuki ads hosted on the site. Gizmodo had been tricked into hosting the ads by hackers posing as Suzuki employees.

In April 2010, details over Gizmodo’s possession of a 4th generation iPhone prototype were revealed. The phone was discovered by an unnamed individual who claimed to have found the device left on a stool at Gourmet Haus Staudt, a bar in Redwood City on March 18th, 2010.
