How to Drive Traffic to Your Blog

I'd like to think people read my blog because I write engaging posts on interesting and original topics. I craft every post with care, trying to make each one both meaningful and brief enough to hold readers' attention. I strive to maintain a consistent output of social criticism and advertising insights. But I've realized recently it's not interesting articles that bring readers to my blog. No, it's something much, much simpler. Pictures of attractive female celebrities.

Since linking to a picture of Mila Kunis in a post last month, I've gotten at least 8-10 hits a day from people searching for variations on Mila Kunis, including "mila kunis eye," "mila kunis porn," and "mila kunis odd eye." If these people find the picture they're looking for and then linger on the site, I'm happy. But I'm sure they rarely explore my posts beyond the Sarah Marshall entry, leaving the real meat of my blog unseen and unenjoyed.

It's disappointing, but I guess if you can't beat 'em, give 'em what they want.
