Not only are links noticed by search engines, but they also act as a tap on the shoulder to other bloggers who can easily identify who is linking to their sites. Linking helps to get you noticed by other bloggers who are likely to investigate the sites that are linking to them. This may lead them to become new readers of your blog or to add links to your blog from theirs. You can take links to other blogs a step further by leaving a trackback on the other blog to let them know you've linked to them. Blogs that allow trackbacks will include a link back to your blog in the comments section of the post that you originally linked to. People do click on trackback links!

• Use Forums and Online Communities: Join different forum sites and participate on discussions. Put your blog link in the comments you make as a signature. Find related communities and forums where you can put your blog link. This not only helps others (as you are sharing good information) but also increase the traffic of your blogs.

They're also key to helping readers find your blog when they perform searches. More relevant tags you add more chances of getting visitors. Images don't just make your blog look pretty, they also help people find you in search engine listings. People often use the image search options offered by Google, Yahoo! and other search engines, and naming your images with search engine optimization in mind can easily boost your traffic.
