(1) Learn Search Engine Optimization.
If you want to make your blog dynamic, go and learn SEO aka Search Engine Optimization.

(3) Search Marketing / Backlinking
This is optional because I don’t do it. Back-linking is putting your link all over the net. Even though many believe it is an unnatural way to market your site and can get your site de-indexed from Search Engines, SEO gurus like Brian Dean encourages bloggers to do so in a White Hat way.

(4) Create Original And Quality Contents
The lifeline of any blog is great content.
You must ensure you write long article that add value weekly.
You can get ideas from others but don’t copy them word for word.
Ensure you write great articles weekly.
If you can learn these 4 strategies, you will see your blog flying higher in search engines.
One more thing!!!.
Stop Building Backlinks! Allow Google To Find Your Contents Naturally.
A lot of sites have been sand boxed by Google because the authors are building unnatural backlinks.
So stop following the bad guys encouraging you to build backlinks.
Instead take your time to create quality contents that others can like and share, in no time Google will find your contents and rank it appropriately.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that building backlink can be time-consuming, I don’t really encourage people to do so because it is unnatural and time consuming.
I personally don’t build backlink and I will never encourage anyone to do so.
Just allow Google to find your website naturally as you create great contents that solve problems every week.
Watch this interesting video by Income School that elaborates on this topic.
In conclusion, to grow your blog, learn SEO, do Keyword Research, understand Search Engine Marketing and create great contents.
To take your site to another level, you can also create a great YouTube Channel to build fans and subscribers base.
I have seen bloggers quit blogging for vlogging (video blogging). If you prefer that, it is also a good idea.
Just make sure you stay focused and create quality videos weekly. Read How To Become A Successful YouTuber for more.
One more thing, don’t waste your time by creating several niches site. Choose one niche (topic) you love to write about and create master piece contents on it.
Create one site around the topic you love to write about and create great articles weekly.
Simplicity is the key to becoming a successful blogger.
Why complicate it when you can make it easy???. Think about it.
Happy blogging friends!!!.
