In this post I will explain how I drive traffic to my site. The list includes 10 ways to boost traffic on your site. I will also show what my blog has achieved in September and what my goals are for October.
How do I drive traffic to my site? 10 tips on how to boost your traffic:
Social media is a must these days. As you build up your follower count you gain marketing power. When you have thousands of followers and you tweet something that includes your blog in it, believe me many people will see it and hopefully click on it.
Design a creative business card that includes your blog.
Guest posts will always stir up your blog. Find people who write content that is similar to yours and ask them if they are interested in writing for you.
Through Facebook you can create groups, fan pages and share links.
Don’t forget to always work on your SEO so that people searching for what you have to offer can find you.
If you use WordPress download the “All in One SEO Pack.”
Word of mouth also helps sometimes, many people after hearing of your blog will check it out.
Commenting on other blogs
Another way to drive traffic to your site is by commenting on other blogs. Most blogs leave you the option of including your URL so if you leave an interesting comment many people may click on your link.
I tend to comment a lot on blogs such as: www.wayneliew.com, www.successcircuit.com, www.teenentrepreneurblog.com, www.mashable.com, www.nuwavpublishing.com, www.clintonskakun.com, www.createwithnate.com, www.sendatweet.com.
Many young bloggers who aren’t pulling in a huge profit are usually willing to exchange links or even ads. If you want to spread your link try contacting other young bloggers.
This forum is the place for young entrepreneurs. If you have a question, tip or even want a free website review you can ask here. As long as you include your link in your post or signature people will click on it all the time.
A great way to get recurring visits is by using an email list. I use www.mailchimp.com, it’s a great way to collect people’s emails and inform them when something big is happening on your blog.
