With the number of blogs constantly growing it can become increasingly difficult to keep your audience and attract new readers, so it doesn't hurt every now and then to give your site a quick ping across the major search engines and directories.
Blogbuzzer is a free tool that can help you do this and give your sites' traffic a bit of a boost. It's very easy to use, just type in the name and URL of your blog and click on the 'Ping' button.
This will enable Blogbuzzer to send a message to many of the major blog directories and make sure that your site is indexed.
You can 'ping' up to 5 sites a day for free without registering or signing up. I've tried this a few times and each time it has brought a noticeable boost to my visitors stats. There is a premium service for $9 a year which automates the service for you and helps you monitor results etc. so if you are really serious about boosting numbers and don't mind spending some money, it might be worth thinking about (I won't be trying it).
This is a simple tool to use and it can be effective particularly if you haven't already got your blog or site registered.
I hope you find it useful.
