Blog Posting Routine for Maximum Traffic

I've been too busy to post here for the last few days, but I have been thinking about the routine I'm developing for the completion of each blog post. After each time I write a post here, I click the bookmarklet buttons I've dragged to my favorites toolbar for each of the following services:

  1. Technorati Tags, to create the subject headings by which searchers in the industry standard Technorati Tag Search Engine will find my posts. Get the bookmarklet and instructions here.
  2. Ping-O-Matic to let search engines know you've added a new blog post that needs to be indexed. Once you've done this the first time, you can just take the URL of the success page, drag it onto your favorites toolbar, and click on it each time you want to ping regarding a new article. It's easy and fantastic!
  3. Bookmark your article with Furl and Del.icio.us. Having an account, and a bookmarklet, for both is probably a good idea. Go to the unique URL of each new blog post you write, and save it in both of these databases. Describe it accurately, tag it appropriately, and others will appreciate your contribution to the general body of knowledge that's been indexed by readers and writers.
I think that's about it. It's easy once it's routine, and it will make your blog a much more findable and usable resource. Once you have these four bookmarklets set up on your toolbar, you should be able to bop through these steps in no time.
