Most of the newbie bloggers quit their blogging just because they don’t see any traffic from their blog(s). Even who have started their blogging career long time ago don’t see much improvisation in their traffic.
Because they don’t follow few tips which has to be followed to get traffic to a new blog. ;)
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.
The best way to build a network around your blog is: start interacting with others using
Why I’m mentioning only these two sites because, it’s easy to spread your word and follow other bloggers easily using this social media sites and get traffic to a new blog.
Following are some EXCEPTIONAL ways to bring traffic to a new blog or any blog.
1. Blog Comments:
Comment on top blogs in your niche try to be the first 5 commenters.
Tips: Subscribe to their RSS feeds.
Don’t spam their blogs by writing one liners. Add value to your comments.
If you want to get traffic daily this is the best way to go.
Ex: “blogging + blog”
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!
Twitter: Follow top bloggers in your niche and follow their followers. This is the simple yet effective way of increasing your targeted twitter followers. Once you have done this, you can tweet your new articles and ask your followers to retweet it.
3. Video Marketing:
Create a 2 min.video and add your blog link at the starting
Submit them to YouTube, metacafe etc.
Tools to use: Use Screenr to create free videos
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.
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.
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.
