5 Easy Ways To Get Blog Traffic

On March 23, 2011, in Blogging, by Sonny Lanorias

In this article I am going to share with you 5 easy ways to get blog traffic. Quality content means nothing if you don’t have any traffic to your blog. If content is king, your blog is your castle and driving quality traffic to your castle is the essential key on generating leads for your business. That’s why getting blog traffic is very important.

During the 90’s or early 20’s, you need to be an seo guru to get blog traffic. But in todays age where millions of people, 500 million to be exact, are going to social media sites such as facebook and twitter daily, getting blog traffic is not that hard. As long as you follow some basic principles and guidelines when it comes to social media.

So here are 5 easy ways to get blog traffic: blog traffic

1. Social Media – the 4 biggest social media sites that you must focus on are facebook, twitter, linkedin and friendfeed. Driving blog traffic to these sites doesn’t mean vomiting your business opportunity links or company replicated websites to your friends and connections. But rather you need to be providing value and useful information and build relationships with your friends and followers. Keep that in mind.

2. Social Bookmarking – again sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Propeller, Mixx and Reddit just to name a few are great ways to generate blog traffic. You can use a service like OnlyWire to get this done. But again remember that the key here is to provide your audience with unique content and avoid plagarism.

3. Blog Comments – commenting on other people’s blog is another strategy to get blog traffic. Make comments on other people’s blog that is in your niche. If you are in the dog training niche, don’t comment on blogs about cars. Stay within your niche. A great way to do this is you search for blogs within your niche that already has high amount of blog traffic and start leaving comments there.

4. Forums – two of the websites that I highly recommend when doing forum marketing are betternetworker and thatmlmbeat. It has tons of value in there and you can as well connect with other like minded entrepreneurs on those forums. Build that relationship and start connecting and answer people’s question in the forum. Again avoid spamming.

5. SEO – you don’t have to be an seo expert to do this. Just know the basics of seo and you’re done. My advise is to study and learn the 4 golden rules of seo and that’s it. Don’t complicate things. Keep it simple.

Creating content, publishing it on your blog and driving traffic are the keys to your success online. Keep it simple, be consistent and take action. Your primary job is to communicate your value to the marketplace. Just get in, get busy and get it done! So those are the 5 easy ways to get blog traffic.

    Excellent content! I’m on BetterNetworker as well as using OnlyWire. I’m still getting my new hub site to be recognized by Google. My content is full of value and I don’t “push” any product or business.

    Thank you, Sonny, for this article!

    My favorite is social bookmarking. I use Digg to generate thousands of page views for my articles. However, nothing can beat organic traffic so I am serious about SEO.

  7. Radu says:

    Hey Sonny,
    Great post about driving traffic!
    All the strategies you mentioned work, it’s only a matter of choosing what you enjoy and sticking with it. At this moment I focus a lot on blog commenting, social media for syndication and networking (fbk mostly) and SEO.

    I do admit that social bookmarking is very powerful-IM automator, Onlywire, Ping.fm are great ways to build good backlinks. Gotta finish the accounts with ping.fm 🙂
    Also niche sites such as Blokube, Blog Engage are excelllent ways to drive traffic to your blog.
    Thanks for sharing buddy!
    Cheers,
    Radu
