I have been testing new ways to drive traffic to my blog – trying to understand what works and what doesn’t. The particular tests have been around how search compares to social networking to offline PR to blog involvement. I have done some analysis in a recent post that you might be interested in: http://dominiquehind.wordpress.com/2008/11/01/whats-working-on-my-blog-stats-update/
It shows that the main search drivers to my blog are keywords around my name (ie the conscious thought). There are only a few unconscious keywords (ie unrelated) that have been driving traffic. Social networks is a great way for driving traffic – particularly when you reference your URL in your profile and then in your status. I read today that another way to drive traffic to your blog is via updating your profile image to include the URL of your blog – another way to drive traffic.
Great post and I would be interested in your thoughts.
