One of the major problems many bloggers face is getting Blog traffic to their blogs, and the truth in the online world is that traffic is very, essential to any online business; ultimately it is traffic that brings in people that buy.
In this post, I will be sharing about 5 ways you can significantly increase your website traffic.
5 Amazing Best Way To Promote Blog Traffic
1. Blogging Commenting
I just began to realize the power of blog commenting. Blog commenting is a powerful way to get traffic to your website especially if done wisely and on a large scale.
One major thing about blog commenting is that it also helps you build a great brand when people begin to see your comments on others page. Not only that in the long run it also helps you to develop a good relationship with well-known bloggers.
It is very important to make use of avatars when you post comments on others pages. Especially when you try to get Traffic From StumbleUpon to your blog through blog commenting.
Our avatar pictures show our real identity to the readers and that will help people take note of you when they begin to see your comments along with your real face. If your real face is not showing along with your comments, there are every chance to get that comment into the spam folder or most of the time when the blog owner approve the comments if your face is not showing along it may count as spam comment and ultimately that land in the spam folder. So make sure your real identity is revealed when you post comments. Here is a simple tutorial in which the Guest Author Chery Schmidt shows us how to include an avatar picture along with your comments. Adding Your Picture To WordPress Blog Comments.
Being the first person to comment also helps you to get the good attention by the visitors. Generally, people likely to visit the websites of few of the first commenters and they rarely visit the rest.
When commenting to get traffic, quality is better than quantity because a lot of bloggers will delete your comment if you write generic comments and readers tend to click on valuable comments more than any other comments because they believe someone with this type of great comment will also have something similar on his blog.
2. Guest Posting
7 of the top ten referrers in my analytics data are from my guest posts and all of them sent me over 150 unique visitors. Guest posting is really effective and the power of a guest post should never be underestimated.
One thing I have come to notice with guest posts is that people prefer quality over quantity; if your guest post is a great one then you will get more visitors from it than just writing anything.
Many people tend to write just any guest post because they believe since the blog is not theirs then their best post should be on their blog, this is not supposed to be because of several reasons. One major advantage of submitting quality guest posts is that it helps you build a relationship with the blogger and his readers but if you just write anything there is a probability of the blogger declining your post, and if he doesn’t his readers will not visit your blog. The better your guest post, the better your result.
3. Blogging Communities
This is one underutilized Blog traffic generation strategy many bloggers don’t use, many bloggers tend to give excuses that they are busy, If you are busy then you might want to be submitting your guest posts to blogging communities every weekend.
Blog Engage and StumpleUpon are few of the blog communities I am involved in. These two networks have sent me hundreds of visitors over time.
One major thing to consider when trying to get the best from blogging communities is that you have to have high-quality posts and you also have to build the relationship because people tend to vote up people they know and if you have a high-quality post people will be more inclined to visit your blog.
4. Forum Marketing
There was a time I signed up to the warrior forums and with only 50 posts I had already gotten over 70 visitors to my blog, I didn’t post a link to my blog in my posts, it was in the signature.
You can get great results from forum marketing if it is done properly, one great thing to consider when trying to market your blog through forums is that it is very important to try as much as possible to help others and not just spam people for your benefit.
If your aim is to go to forums to go and spam then within a short period of time you will be banned but if you focus on helping as many people as possible the end result will be you will have a good and long lasting stand in the forum. Having more friends and building a stronger relationship with fellow members will increase Blog traffic and authority.
5. Mailing List
I wouldn’t have put this on this list but it is also a very effective way to getting traffic to your blog. I was checking my overall stats today and I discovered that my mailing list has sent me hundreds of visitors, this is a good number because I only sent my posts to them a few times.
One of the major benefits of a Bulk Email list is the instant result it provides, people tend to respond faster because they are closer to their email than any other thing.
I have also observed emails I sent and I discovered that your titles matter, I have had sent emails have as low as 15% open rate and I have also had emails have over 35% open rate but what matters most is the title. If you have a cool and attractive title then you will get more results than having generic titles.
Getting traffic to blogs used to be a difficult task and I started noticing a difference over time. It is the tips in this post that is helping me get thousands of visitors to my 3 months old blog every week, use them to your advantage and you will be amazed at how they work.
It is also important to know that getting Blog traffic takes time and requires constant effort, if you are dedicated to making the effective use of the above tips then in no time you will be getting a lot of Boost blog traffic on autopilot.
