Hello, welcome to Blog Central. Today’s topic will be on the 3 best way to increase traffic to your blog.
The hardest thing about having your own Blog or website is increasing traffic. I’m going to give you 3 great ways that you can make this happen. This will take some work on your part but in the end, it will pay off. I’ll give you a list of some places that you can go to. You want to join these sites and start building your brand.
Don’t make the mistake I made. I bought traffic for 30 days for $5.00. I thought that would be great because all these people will be coming to my site. But it really doesn’t matter if they come, if they don’t come back then that is the problem. You want people to come back and really read your content. You don’t just want them to come once, stay on for a few minutes and leave. Oh no, build a brand that will make people happy to return.
There are plenty of ways to increase traffic. These ways will work. So read these and start getting involved. I won’t give you every way, but I will get you started:
I wanted to write about Social Media first. We all know how big Social Media is in the world of the internet today. This is a big way to increase traffic. There are millions upon millions of people using Social Media as I write. Here is a list of a few of the sites you can go to:
Facebook-Facebook is one of the biggest Social Media sites. You can make a Fan page and build up your followers who might be interested in your blog. This is a great traffic strategy.
Twitter-Yes, Twitter is growing every day so why not open a Twitter Account. Build up followers in your niche and when you update your blogs, Tweet them.
google plus-Google Plus is owned by Google and is a plus in the Social Media circle. Add people to your circle who might be interested in what your site can offer.
Pinterest-Pinterest is growing every day. They are the 3rd biggest Social Media network, but a lot of people have never heard of them. You can put images from your post on Pinterest. Just pin them and organize them into categories. Watch your traffic surge.
Tumblr-I put all my posts on Tumblr. It’s a great place to share your blog role.
Linkedin-This website is a powerhouse. The site is business oriented, a lot of professionals on this site. Most of these people have money to spend. So I would focus on this site, for sure.
Stumbleupon-I always stumbles my blog for a good backlink to get extra traffic to my website.
Reddit-Reddit is another great social bookmarking site. This site is worth submitting too.
These are probably the most popular Social Media sites to connect with. there are tons more out there. So start hooking up with these sites.
Classifieds are another way to gain great free traffic. You can post to most Classifies with ease in just about any country or city. Most of them you can’t put affiliate links, but you can put your website URL and lead people back to your site. Here is a few Classifies you should be posting with:
Craiglist-This is one of the biggest classify adds around. The only problem is, if you have more than one classify, you can be ghosted. So it’s a good idea just to post one a week for traffic leading back to your website.
Back pages-This is another great site for getting traffic back to your site. You can post single free adds to a different city of your choice. You can, however, use paid ads and post to multiple cities.They are very cheap to go this route.
US Free ads-This is another great site to post ads. The best way to go with US Free Ads is to go the pay route. It’s only $9.99 a month and you can post unlimited ads.
Gumtree-Gumtree is England version of Craiglist and Back Pages. Great for traffic out of our English brothers and sisters.
These are probably the best Classifieds for some great traffic leading back to your website. So sign up for all of these. They all are free with other options.
Join a Forum. Forums are a great place to share your ideas and get other ideas from different members. Forums and a great source to make friends and get more traffic leading back to your website:
Warrior Forum-Probably the biggest forum in the internet world today. This is a great place to gain traffic to your website. You can join for free, but they do have an option for you to join pay version of this forum. You have so much more options if you are a registered member.
Wickedfire-This is another free forum for you to join. This is not one of the biggest forums, but they do get a lot of traffic.
HubPages-This forum gets a lot of traffic that you can generate back to your website for free. So stop in every once in a while to help the community.
So hook up with a forum. No matter what niche you are into, you can find forums for it. Most of them are free anyway and you can get great traffic to your site.
