Tips to increase comments/hits on ur blog

  • Write well (Writing in form of bullet points may not be the best way)
  • Do not have ur with blog title with words “Random”, “ramblings” etc… everyone knows that blogs mostly have arbit random ramblings
  • Preferably have a feminine pen-name (Maybe this was the strategy the famous tam writer Sujatha followed in his early days:)... jus kidding!)
  • Link to good sites – hoping for a return favor . Don’t expect “The week” and “The hindu” to link you back; I meant link to good blogs.
  • Somehow bribe/hack or earn a link onto popular sites like kaps or india uncut or desipundit
  • Having URLs like 'www.aadisht.net' or 'www.lazygeek.net' gives the blog a touch of sincerity. Blogspot URLs need to have definite superiority in content to compensate for the uninspired URL.
  • Frequently post pictures (nice ones) of hot women (like tam movie women : take care to tread the fine line of beauty and vulgarity) and sivaji THE boss’s pictures as and when they come into circulation in the forwarded mail circuit
  • Reply to all your comments in separate comments – just to give respect to the people who cared to comment and also to artificially increase ur comment count – which hopefully will feed into more comments
  • Do not have a site counter which reads something like “28” or “53” when you already have similar number of posts up on ur blog.
  • Adsense reduces aesthetic value of the blog in general. Unless you are sure that its going to give you a few dimes a month – its definitely not worth the definite disappointment which google assures.:)
  • Never update more than one post at a time
  • Never leave the blog fallow for more than couple of days – these blog readers are never such good loyalists!:)
  • If nothing works, write about tamil or hindi movies – afterall aren’t blogs the modern era’s kumudam and ananda vikatan which people read during office hours.:)

P.S: If hajaar enthu, then write about IIPM - you never know - it might still work!!!:)

Are you sure the Hindu never links back? Got to remember not to make that mistake ...

Just quickly glanced through your sidebar. The word 'Metallurgist' caught my attention. Wonder why ...

And, oh, I enjoyed your post.

I was just comparing your blog to the points mentioned in your post. Most of it is Ok, except, perhaps, your alias should be Narayani instead of Narayan :D

ps: I think a compulsory blogger account to post comments is a bummer.

Abi,
Good to meet a fellow metallurgist - even though i (with a slightly bowed head) have stopped studying the metals and their family. Nevertheless the feel good factor remains.:).. Thanks for dropping by.

BD,
