When You Stop Getting Traffic, How Long Until You Realize THIS Is Your Biggest Problem?


Exactly how are people finding you?

How do they find your content to share your content?

If they’re not, then you have a serious problem that you need to address. I had this same problem at one point in time and I’m doing all I can to improve my odds of getting exposure.


  1. Hi Andrew,

    Promoting blog posts is as crucial as writing and composing them. These words are true to the core. And I must admit that I was a bit late to realize this fact. When I started out blogging, all I was concerned about was churning out blog posts. I would do little promotion stuff, but not much of it. Promoting stuff is something that I’m working on, continuously.

    Due to lack of time, sometimes I’m left with little to no promotion efforts. However, these days, I do make sure that I promote my latest blog posts here on Kingged. This platform ha blessed me with some good old engagement and traffic! 🙂

    Then, I make it a point to share and promote posts on Google + communities and Facebook. I also use JustRetweet to get it spread across social media sites. It helps me get lots of retweets for that post.

    I’ve not given re-purposing a serious thought. But I guess I could embark on a re-purposing campaign any fine day 🙂


    • Hi Arun,

      Thanks for the comment. I was late to this party as well because all I was concerned about when I started my site was trying to sell something. Then, when I realized that wasn’t the way to go about things, I started to focus on writing my content and not at all about promoting it. It took me a while to realize that my efforts of actually promoting my content is was more important than actually taking time and writing it because what good is it if NO ONE sees my content.

      I’m really glad that I found Kingged.com and like I said, I don’t know how I managed to find it … but one day I just did. This site has also blessed me with some traffic and engagement that I appreciate.

      You should give re-purposing a thought. It’s another way to get your content out there to people that take in information a different way.

      Thanks again for the comment.

  2. Wooo Hooo I like that Kingged was listed here :)) I also have having a hard time figuring out Triberr! I knew I signed up for this a while back then today I read an article that stated we shouldn’t be without it so I went and checked into this, Well now I know why I don’t use it.. HEHE I wasted about an hour trying to figure it out and left no further ahead then before.. OH WELL NEXT!! HEHE

    There are a lot of other sites as you have stated for us to promote our content to Right?

    Great Share.. Chery :))

    • Hi Chery,

      Thanks for the comment. I don’t know what is wrong with me but I just couldn’t figure out Triberr. Maybe I need to try it all about and really follow my step-by-step tutorial. I’ve been a part of it for months and I’m only with 1 tribe and my content still can’t be shared haha.

      Nonetheless it’s ok. I found Kingged which has a great community here and is easy to understand.

      Thanks for the comment.

  3. Its one thing to create and publish a blog post. Its another ball game to have that post viewed by readers. For a blogger, its not just about the content but about reader taking action based on the content. So, promotion of a content is very relevant for blogging success.
    I agree with you Andrew, the examples here are things one have to do when it comes to promotion of a website.

    Kingged.com is sure a content syndication website where KINGGERs always try to promote contents that of high quality. Following the rules would give the blogger better leverage!

    • Hi Sunday,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Getting your posts viewed by readers IS a completely different ballgame because you have to actively promote to get those readers to find your content. It’s something that really has me wondering sometimes because so many people spend so much time writing blog posts, then complain when they don’t get visitors. Well, they should spend LESS time writing and MORE time promoting.

      Also I agree that Kingged.com is a great site and does promote very high qualities of content.

      Thanks for the comment.

  4. Thanks for this post Andrew – it has given me a couple of good ideas.

    I myself am guilty of not promoting my blog content. I just write and hope, which is totally the wrong thing to do, especially now as I am seeing my visitor numbers drop quite significantly in the last 2 weeks or so.

    I have joined here (which is a start because the thinking behind it is awesome), and am now trying to be more active on social media. I will 100% give bizsugar and inbound a go, but these things take time – I feel guilty that I could be providing more blog posts or content for my subscribers – but it’s a vicious circle because if I don’t promote it, then it doesn’t really matter how good my content is.

    Thanks again,

    • Hi Richard, thanks for the comment.

      I understand the dilemma that you seem to be facing but I wrote a blog post last week talking about why it’s bad to write a blog post everyday. The main reason as to why I believe it’s a bad idea is because you don’t have adequate time to promote your existing content. Like you said, if you don’t promote it, it doesn’t matter HOW good your content is.

      Hopefully you’ll be promoting your content more often so you can see your visit numbers on the rise again.

      Thanks again for the comment.

  5. Andrew, big wake up call here. I see the trend pretty quickly; when I Kingged it up, I noted an instant surge in traffic, and before I actively worked Kingged my traffic needed a boost. Be social on each one of the prescribed networks to see the greatest results, for when you’re actively promoting others and yourself good things will happen for you.

    • Hi Ryan,

      Thanks for the comment. Reciprocation. That’s what it’s about. Share others content and good things will happen for you.

      Kingged is great and whenever I post something on that site, I also get a traffic boost. But one thing I started to do as well, which I wasn’t doing before, is engage with readers and those that comment and check out other great posts.

      After all, it’s all about building relationships.

      Thanks for the comment.

  6. When you stop getting traffic, kingged.com is a sure fire website to get your traffic back. It is obvious that bloggers and marketers never regret joining the community not just for traffic but also for new friendship, lessons, and many more.

    In addition, yes, the social media you have listed above surely helps. The relationship with your readers/followers is important; it is a serious stuff in marketing.

  7. Hi Metz thanks for the comment.

    Kingged.com really is a great place to get traffic, but the more and more I go on here, the more I’m realizing how great a community it really is here. I haven’t regretted joining for one second and there are many lessons to be learned and friendships to be made from this site. Hopefully people start to use it in their regular promotion and start to see how great a community this place really is.

    Thanks again for the comment.
