We live in the information age and humans are information addicts. We need answers to our questions and solutions to our problems and we need them right now. Our constant huger for more up to date information is what makes blogs so popular. Blogs that does not provide any value, any quality content have little or no chance of being noticed and will never grow a following. In other words they will have a hard time getting traffic.
Bloggers have a lot of different options when it comes to driving traffic to their posts. Organic traffic from search engines is free and can reach awesome levels why I believe it worth investing some time in understanding how it really works. Unfortunately it takes some time for a blog to earn the needed credibility and trust and more importantly it requires 100% original and high quality content that readers like. You see search engines today are smart and more sophisticated than we can imagine and they know what their users like.
Having said that it is important for bloggers to understand how search engines work and to practice search engine optimizations aka SEO to make sure their content is indexed and easily categorized and understood be search engine spiders. There is of course a balance here that needs to be maintained as too much and too smart SEO will make a blog look suspicious to search engines which for sure have negative impact on traffic.
