How can any blogger Get Traffic to A New Blog?

Though there are many ways to Get Traffic to A New Blog, the most important factor is NETWORK. The more network you have the more traffic you’ll get.

2. Network with others using Facebook and twitter

Facebook: Join in Groups.. Promote yourself out there.. BTW facebook alone is giving me 100+ leads daily (even without promoting everyday!). Ammar Ali is also getting huge traffic from Facebook ;) . So don’t neglect bringing Facebook traffic to your blog.

You may find it difficult in the beginning but when you start promoting others content and when you get to know each other on Facebook, it becomes very easy!

PS: You can join our group ‘Everything About Blogging‘,  and can promote your blog there!

Submit them to YouTube, metacafe etc.

4. Spend time on writing detailed articles.

Never assume that you can bring quality traffic without much efforts.

You need to differentiate yourself with others to become successful. It takes time to create content, I agree but you shouldn’t spend whole time creating only normal or average 600 words posts.

Spend time to create great content.

Write detailed posts with 1000 or 1500+ words once in a while. If you’re not a full time blogger like me, at least try to create detailed posts once or twice a month.

So that you can grab others attention and you can show your blogging expertise to your readers.

It’s really important for you to create killer articles regularly to survive in blogosphere. This can bring your quality traffic from other sites or search engines.

4. Don’t forget SEO

Most people say forget about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) when you’re just starting out.How To Get Traffic To A New Blog ?
 
I think that’s the dumbest suggestion!
 
You need to focus on what keywords to use and how much keyword density you should maintain in your content to get search engine traffic to your blog.

It’s extremely important to bring organic (search engine) traffic to your blog. Because it’s free and highly effective!

Make sure that you’re not keyword stuffing your content. It makes your readers hard to digest what you’re saying in your articles.

And do proper keyword analysis before you’re writing the articles. Then embed them into your posts. If you’re a beginner then this is enough! Don’t go beyond, you’ll better understand about SEO when you’re spending more time on blogging.

Conclusion:

Always try to retweet and promote your fellow bloggers before asking them to promote your content. This can make others to promote your content sooner or later and you will have high chances of getting their attention if they find it useful. 

I dint recommend guest blogging here in this post. Major reason is without having any online reputation you can’t cope up with other bloggers to get accepted your guest posts. When they reject you, you’ll feel down to submit another guest post to them.

So, focus on building a network by blog commenting, writing great stuff and social media networking using above tips.

    Hey Rahul this is the very informative post for those who starts there new blog. thank you for sharing with us :)

  3. says

    Wonderful tips Rahul :) In my opinion, it is very important for a newbie blogger to reach out and make connections as much as possible. Blog commenting, interacting in social media (without getting off track, of course) and making genuine connections will help newbie bloggers not only for generating traffic to the new blog, but also for the long run!

    • Rahul Kuntala says

      Hey Jane,

      Nice to see you here.. yeah, creating a network around our blogs is essential to grow our business… and it takes some time and efforts to do that.

      Thanks for stopping by

  4. says

    I have found very good results by making friends with other bloggers on facebook. That will give you the first kickstart.. Great post!

  5. says

    I think Facebook and twitter are a good place for getting traffic when your blog is new,everyone will come to know about your posts and updates through facebook and twitter,and as always SEO is really important to get traffic through google :)

  6. says

    Yes, getting traffic to a brand new blog is really a hard task, especially because it does not get ranked higher on the search engines initially. I usually make use of social media websites and guest posting to get more traffic to my new blogs. Anyways, thanks for sharing this awesome post Rahul.

    • Rahul Kuntala says

      It’s almost impossible task to those who’re just starting out… they’ve to follow many things to make their blog more better…

  7. says

    Whenever I launch a new blog I go on a blog commenting spree. It is a technique you can use without any fear of being penalised. The next favourite is a Guest Blogging but it takes a lot of time and the results are not that quick. Video promotion requires a very different kind of content than the usual pics and articles we share. So it has too not worked out well.

  8. says

    I think the best way like you said is networking and blog commenting. Twitter can go a very long way in building relationships with other bloggers. If you can get in with a few good ones it can really take you a long way in a short amount of time.

      • says

        Yes, you are right. Another tip I always tell people is to call people by theirs names when you are commenting. It goes a long way in building that initial bond. Most people do not think about that, but it really does help.

  9. Abhishek says

    Among all listed tips I would consider SEO as one of the main factor to rank well. As, on/off site SEO is capable to bring lots of free traffic to the site in the form of organic traffic.

  10. says

    article is really nice…..and after reading this post i am spending more time on article writing but i have problem i am not getting traffic from twitter..i used to get good traffic from Facebook but just because of many share on Facebook, when someone clicked on my post link Facebook asked from people is this site is spam or not spam this thing reduces so much traffic…….!!!

    • says

      That’s good for you Bhavesh :)

      Facebook brings lots of traffic when we connect and build proper network around our blogs, it’s one of my biggest traffic sources.

  11. Kashif Minhaj says

    Nice Article. I would also suggest to use stumbleupon and other social bookmarking sites to increase traffic.

  12. says

    Hey Rahul

    These are some great tips. I generally don’t write posts of more than 400 to 800 words. Most readers scan over your posts so I would only write something more than 800 words if I really felt strongly about something.

    I find by networking with other bloggers my traffic has increased immensely. I always had a decent amount of organic traffic but I use Twitter and Google+ as well to back this up. Not too much on Facebook yet. I don’t like the Facebook page system that much.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Surely people scan the post to see if it is worth reading? I hate reading anything short and useless, so I won’t invest time reading anything that doesn’t look helpful however long it is. I read long posts if I know it is full of information and ignore short posts if it is a fluff and filler post which most 400 word posts are.

    • says

      Hi Tim,

      Glad you like it. Yes, long articles bring more readers to our blogs and they act as ‘pillars’ to our blogs in the long run.

      But they often take time to finish. That’s why most people don’t prefer writing them . Haha, FB works better for me ;)

  13. says

    Awesome post Rahul !
    I am agree with you social networking and video marketing very important to get visitor :) really valuable post about blogging and get traffic.

  14. says

    Hi Rahul,

    I completely agree with you. Building one’s own network is an initial to drawing traffic to your blogs. Also, I personally feel that, writing meaningful posts which bear a contemporary significance will automatically draw crowds to your site/blog. Content should be very good. With a little labour the ultimate objective can be achieved.

    Regards,

      Hi Sanjib,

      Yes attention grabbing articles will surely attract many people :) Content and writing style should also plays a vital role in making anything go viral.

      Thanks for stopping by

    Great Article for Newbie Bloggers, Not even 1 point should be missed by anyone, By the way, I’m new to twitter, Can you give some tips to build connections in it?

    • Rahul Kuntala says

      Follow the top bloggers, keep ticking your tweets and be active on twitter.. that’s what all I can give now :)

  16. Brandon McVey says

    I like how you balanced socializing and SEO. It really does take a balance of each. Once someone gets the site up and running with focus keywords, one of the easiest ways to get started with the off page SEO backlinking might be to grab a cheap backlinking service.

    imautomator.com used to be free but due to people abusing it it is now like $3 per month to get 15 backlinks per URL / post, I think unlimited URLS. Socialmonkee.com is a one time charge of $7 to post one URL a day to 25 sites (then you can upgrade later to 3 URLS to 100 or 150 sites later when things start going ~ 300-450 backlinks a day is pretty sweet!).

    Now, IMAutomator is the simplest because you can just post one title and one description and away you go (good for beginners). Social Monkee is more complex. It requires one to spin the titles and description so it is different on each bookmarking site (more effective but more advanced).

    Another simple SEO step is to take the RSS feed of the blog and submit it to a dozen or so RSS feed aggregators. You only need to set this up once, then after that each feed gets automatically updated with new backlinks.

    Not to step on your toes about ‘just focusing on keywords first’, this is true. But for those ready to go the next step, start grabbing some easy backlinks right out of the gate.

      I don’t recommend someone to buy traffic unless they have some great content. Of course it’s worth buying, but one need to be careful to buy from trustworthy sites..

      Thanks for the comment :)

  17. says

    Hey Rahul
    Getting traffic from twitter, didn’t work for me,I follow lots of people,even some follow me back but I don’t get traffic from traffic,Can you suggest me a way to get traffic from twitter ?

    • Rahul Kuntala says

      Hi Ashish,

      To be honest, it dint work me yet. I’ve to focus more on getting traffic from twitter, I’ll tell you if I find something interesting :)

  18. says

    I like these tips and it is important as you mentioned on your conclusion that retweet and share others update will surely bring up the traffic virally.

    • says

      Yogendra,

      That’s a good tip! I agree with you, YT marketing has greater potential to bring lots of visitors to our blogs, because it’s the 2nd biggest SE which is mostly ignored by newbies..

  19. says

    Your post is always user-friendly. Superb writing in natural steps and tips. Will follow you for sure. :) But will you please mention some steps to increase followers. I have done about every trick and natural steps. But not good results. Please help if possible.

    • says

      Which followers do you want??

      Twitter fan following is v.easy, just follow all, unfollow who don’t follow you ;)

      For Facebook, you’ve to kick your butt off to get more followers, it takes time and you should actively participate on FB groups to promote your content.

  20. says

    facebook and twitter are good sources to drive traffic to new blog. specially the facebook groups you can easily get traffic from these group with little effort

    • says

      Like you said I think it also takes time and after building a reputation, it becomes a wonderful thing to blog. Sometimes, a new blogger may want to give up if he’s not strong enough. Great post any way

  22. says

    Wow Rahul.. you’re amazing, I was searching for this kinda post for weeks, I luckily got the stuff from you :)

    2 cents from my side: new bloggers should focus more on creating timeless content rather than focusing on getting traffic!
