How should I increase Traffic on my blog? How shall I know, how much time my readers spend on my blog? Questions like this and more are always in the mind of a blogger, particularly the newbies. What’s the Answer, Where to find this? I chanced upon Keith’s blog and here I find similar Problems. He has actually tried to analyse the problem. But every one is looking for the answers. Some other issues pertaining to WordPress Blogs in particular, are also mentioned. Here’s my small ‘contribution’ to this…

I do blog on word press and have almost similar problems like Keith. I can’t use google analytics ‘coz I’m not using the paid feature of editing CSS. I have reported this issue to WordPress support, but nothing tangible has materialized. If I hear anything from then I would let you know.
For what you have written on your blog post, I don’t know if you are using Social media to drive traffic to you blog.

I’ll suggest you to use Facebook, orkut and twitter (which I guess you must be using), posting blog links to them.
And join some blog community in your area. That also helps build traffic.
Most importantly, luckily I learned it sooner, keep reading other blogs and comment. Comments do drive traffic and help build rapport with other bloggers. Utilize “buddy-post” on The Daily post. And if you want to go for in-depth analysis use services of Pro-blogger. This is a blog post from Pro-blogger where you would get an idea about how you can help yourself with blog traffic.
This is just a brief idea, hope this helps you, Keith and many other fellow bloggers
