It is not the financial impact that worries most of us bloggers during those initial days. During this period, I realized that placing well-targeted comments on relevant blogs was one of the best ways to draw traffic to one’s blog.

This will help you target visitors in the blog to check out for more information in your blog. This is one easy way to get targeted traffic to your blog.
