1. Write unique and valuable content-Content is king. It is the content by which visitors determine the quality of your blog. It is recommended to write your own and unique content. So blog about something you are crazy and provide quality. Never copy and paste from other blogs. Google, Yahoo and other search engines spend millions of dollars to catch copycats. You won’t get traffic from search engines if you copy and paste from other blogs.
2. Do some keywords research-Just Google your keyword you want to target.Find the competition for that keyword and after that decide the title for your post.
3. Add meta tags to your blog-Add meta tags to your blog.Google and other search engines give preference to blogs with meta tags.

7. Use Ping service-Pinging informs search engines that your blog has been updated. After publishing a post, ping it. There are a number of ping services. I recommend pingomatic.com. It is developed by wordpress.
8. Blog Directories-Submitting your blog to blog directories can help you. Some famous blog directories are technorati, blogcatalog, blogtoplist.Add your blog’s url as your signature.
