One of the most important things to do by a blogger is to drive quality traffic to his blog. Without traffic your blog is nothing but an empty island with resources. Now, answer me, why people do not go to an island which is full of resources? May be, there are no way to reach the island or the island is a dangerous and unfriendly area. Now the solution of this problem is to build a road to the island or make the island friendly. You have a blog with good contents then make a way so that visitors can get to your blog.
#Without traffic what can happen
Running a blog without traffic is useless and boring. If you are running a WordPress blog and you have zero traffic then where is the point of paying the hosting bill. Some people do blogging to share their views with others. Now, if there are no visitors then with whom he will share his opinions? So, many things can happen if you have no traffic or less traffic in your blog. Such as,
- Without enough traffic your contents are useless.
- You can’t earn money blogging without a good amount of traffic.
- Without quality traffic you won’t get any comments in your article and articles without comments will be less interesting.
- If you are selling products in your blog then without traffic you can’t sell them.
#How to get visitors without search engines
There are lot of ways to drive traffic to your blog. Among them optimizing your content for search engines is the best way. But doing SEO is hard and it’s a long time procedure. There are some other ways by which you can drive some traffic easily. Now I’m going to tell you about those ways.
#Join Blogging Communities
Blogging communities are great to drive targeted traffic. There are a lot of communities to join. They get a lot of visitors daily. So, why don’t you join them, share your article and drive some of their traffic to your blog. These communities are also a good source of backlinks. Blogging communities are important for building relationships with other bloggers.
#Use Social Networks
Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon are good source of traffic. Sharing your articles there can get you a nice amount of visitors. In my experience, StumbleUpon is better than any other networks to drive targeted traffic. Social networks are also good for marketing your products.
#Use Video Networks
You can also drive traffic to your blog using video networks like YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Vimeo and others. Just make some helpful video, upload them and see the result. Don’t forget to add your links in the video description. Try to put your blog link inside the video. Video networks are now a good source of earning. You can monetize your YouTube videos using AdSense.
#Join Facebook groups
Actually this point should be included in the 2nd one (Use Social Networks) but I’d like to write about it separately because Facebook groups are now another good source of visitors. Actually these groups are great to build relationships among bloggers. You can easily make your blog known to other bloggers through these groups.
#Do Blog Comments
You can comment on other blogs to drive traffic to your blog. Commenting on other blogs is a nice way to get comments back. Try to make sensible comments and avoid spamming. Large comments are always eye-catching. Commenting on ‘Comment-Luv’ enabled blogs is very helpful to get direct traffic to your recent posts.
By following these ways you can drive massive traffic to your blog. Though Search Engines are the best medium to get traffic, you must do SEO. And along with SEO do the above things to boost our rankings.
That’s all for now. If you have any other tips or solution please make comments. If I am wrong in anywhere feel free to correct me.
