25 Tips Guaranteed To Easily Increase Your Blog TrafficHere are 25 Tips To Increase Your Blog Traffic from my guest blogger, Uttoran Sen.

Uttoran is a master content marketer who is adept in social media strategies.

Getting traffic to your blog is really the life and blood of your business, isn’t it?

Of course it is.

To do that requires you to develop wise content marketing and social media methods that will help you increase your blog traffic.

You are about to learn a lot about how to do exactly that.

So, let’s get to Uttoran’s great guidance on this.

Give this a read-through, then let’s hear your thoughts in the comments section at the end of the article.

25 Tips Guaranteed To Easily Increase Your Blog Traffic

Blogging is fun!

But only when your blog is active.

The real fun in blogging isn’t about adding a post every day and waiting for things to happen.

Because that process is called passive blogging, which more often than not, leads to a dead blog.

Instead – Take Charge!

Turn your blog into an active, comment generating, social boosting, subscriber magnet and engaging blog.

Because that is where all the fun is – and the money too.

Let’s discuss 25 easy and actionable tips to increase your blog traffic consistently.

1) Add More Content – 3 to 5 Posts a Week

Having more content means more options and places to share them.

If you are someone who has been blogging for a very long time and who already has an established reader base, then posting too much content and flooding your readers might not be a very good idea.

At the same time if you are a new blogger, then you won’t have a lot of content on your blog to share on the social media.

This is where posting a lot of content makes sense.

2) Comments – Yes, it still works!

Old fashioned blog comments still work.

This is how you network with other bloggers, share their content, subscribe to their blogs and pretty much expect the same things in return.

It does take a lot of time, so you have to do some time management here.

As a blogger, you don’t post every day.

So on days when you aren’t writing an article, focus totally on comments.

On any other regular day, try to get some comments done whenever you get a little time.

3) Get active on more Social Sites

Facebook isn’t the only social site out there.

There’s so many of them, for example – Linkedin, Pinterest, Instagram, Stumbleupon etc.

Try to be active on as many of these as possible.

If you are too busy, do what I do.

Mark the Sundays as “Pinterest Sunday” or “Instagram Sunday.”

Make full use of each Sunday to get and build up a following.

Life is busy for everyone.

If you want to make a difference, then you have to push yourself further to get it done.

4) Build up a profile on a few select social sites

For bloggers and marketers, there are smaller but very active social sites, for example, Inbound, GrowthHackers and others.

inbound

To make good use of these sites, you need to be really active on them.

Follow the 95% contribute and 5% promote yourself rule for these sites.

That is where all the hard work comes into play.

You need to build up a really great profile on these sites.

That means, you need to contribute genuinely good posts, make useful comments and be active.

All of this will directly improve your Karma points on those sites, and keep your profile in good standing.

5) Get a WebHost that Listens to you

When it comes to web hosts, it is always a personal choice.

Everyone has their own favorite host which they prefer and recommend.

But any one of those might not necessarily be a good fit for you.

I remember when my sites got hacked, when we hit Digg front page ages ago and my site went down.

When we hit big on Reddit several years later, my site went down again.

When I ranked for a festival keyword unknowingly – and got several thousand visits from it – my site went down once again.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

All in all, on each of these occasions, for whatever reason… the site went down.

Hosting support does get it back live, but the big issue with all these situations was – Time.

The web hosts always take time, and that is why I like hosts that fix issues quickly.

6) Re-Share old Content on Social Media

If you are blogging for some time and you have a portfolio of content already – which can include posts from your own sites, guest posts that you have done in the past, or interviews and features where you have been mentioned – all of these are assets worth promoting.

When you find a new site (for example: FlipBoard, GuestCrew, BlogEngage, DashBurst) to promote your content, use a sharing strategy.

Make a schedule, say 3 posts a day and start sharing these valuable posts.

In time, say a month, when you look at your stats, you will find many of these sites are in the list of your top referral traffic.

7) Influencer Marketing

GuestCrew, JustRetweet, ViralContentBuzz and CoPromote will give you a great basis for a solid influencer marketing campaign.

Once you are registered and logged in to GuestCrew, navigate to your Influencer Dashboard.

In the dashboard, you will get an option to add a status update.

A status update can be anything you wish.

But if you are trying to promote your content, do it this way: Title, hashtag, Link and @Userid.

Then upload an image.

The next step is to boost it.

It will require social coins that can be earned by promoting other people’s content.

Once your boost is approved by a moderator of GuestCrew, it will be live in the offers section.

Then, other people can share it and earn coins by doing so.

Additionally, you can check out the community wall of GuestCrew from the “hashtags” section.

That is where all the status updates are posted.

You can follow other members if you wish – network and connect!

JustRetweet is one of my favorite sites when it comes to getting some quick retweets to my posts.

They have a fairly big membership, so when you post to it, you do get a lot of social media shares.

Moderation of JustRetweet isn’t that strong.

That means you can get away with content that isn’t really top quality.

On the downside, you might want to check what you are sharing if you are strict about your own social timelines.

Viral Content Bee (VCB) is known for its high quality.

It is a heavily moderated community.

If am sharing something off VCB I don’t really have to check it, because I know that the moderators of VCB have already checked it thoroughly before approving it.

I like the overall shares that we get when promoting any content on VCB.

The members there have a strong social presence.

They also allow sites like Stumbleupon and Pinterest which brings in additional visitors every day.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

I found this just recently!

I have been seeing their ads for quite some time, but haven’t really looked into it – until a few weeks ago.

CoPromote isn’t targeted to bloggers alone, and isn’t limited just to the big sites like Facebook and Twitter.

It includes Youtube and Instagram, which is surely a plus.

The membership base of CoPromote is pretty much the biggest when you compare it with the other sites.

I have received over 100+ retweets on content that I have promoted on CoPromote.

8) Guest Posts:

Guest Posts have always been a powerful medium for bloggers to promote, connect and network with other bloggers.

This method has been beaten to death, though, which has brought up some issues with search engines.

Nonetheless, if done properly this is still one of those methods that work.

I have always considered guest posting as the holy grail of blogging and have been doing it since 2007.

As one of the early trailblazers of Guest Blogging, I can totally recommend this method.

Focus on contributing quality and actionable content that helps.

That is how guest blogging can make a big difference.

9) Use Quora

Quora is much more than just a Question and Answer site.

It has changed into a social site now.

quora

If you spend time on Quora and follow those who are interested in the topics that matter to you, then you do stand a chance of networking with like-minded people and growing your own following in the process.

Active members who contribute helpful answers regularly start to trend in the categories where they are contributing.

This is a good way to build up authority and influence.

As a blogger, if you contribute regularly and drop your links where it is required, you can build up a passive traffic source.

Sometimes your answer might trend and receive a lot of views and traffic.

On average, I have seen Quora become a regular source of referral traffic for me.

10) Reddit

I remember way back in 2008 when one of my travel blogs had hit Reddit in a big way.

It was generating tens of thousands of visitors in a single day.

This was much like Digg, which was perhaps one of the first sites to have this voting and community feature.

Digg was certainly bigger but it is gone now.

At this moment, Reddit seems to be the only voting site that still exists.

If you want to be popular on Reddit, you need to really contribute.

Focus on comments because they are very strict about what links you drop on their sites.

Be careful about the Sub-Reddits and make sure your submissions are relevant.

11) Facebook Groups

We keep complaining that Facebook’s organic reach isn’t as good as it used to be.

But that is mostly true for Facebook pages.

As far as the groups go, the activity is still there.

Every group is different and so are their rules.

From experience, I’ve found that some active groups do allow posting of links and sharing content.

Some even allow you to embed your Youtube videos as long as they are relevant to the group’s topic.

The basic rules still stand.

Make sure to contribute relevant content and be helpful with your comments and answers.

If the admins, moderators and other members of the group think you are good, then you can get away with a bit of self-promotion.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

This is an effective means of taking back some of the traffic to your own blog.

12) Get access to Pinterest Boards

Pinterest always worked for me as long as the images that I chose for pinning were attractive – especially to women.

But the real success from Pinterest depends on where you pin your article.

If you are part of a popular board and you pin it there, then your submission will receive plenty of re-pins and even comments.

In this way, Pinterest can ultimately start sending traffic back to your own blog.

Other than this, just focus on following some related pinner’s every day.

It’s always good to keep increasing your followers steadily in this way.

13) Work on your Newsletter

Set up an email autoresponder series.

This is something that I find missing on most blogs and sites.

When a new subscriber joins your email subscription, they haven’t got a clue about you or your site.

But when you start sending emails to them every day, explaining what you do, what your site is about and how all that can help them – that is where you connect.

Stop looking to sell.

Just start delivering real content.

Think of your newsletter as another place to blog.

Write great content for it accordingly.

If it is helpful, people will stay signed-up.

Otherwise, they will unsubscribe.

14) Chase keywords:

Chasing keywords is helpful.

That is how you build passive traffic.

People search for so many terms related to your niche every day.

Some of them are competitive.

But if you keep digging, you will find 3 to 4-word phrases that are far less competitive, and still totally relevant to your niche.

Start making a note of these keywords and write articles on them.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

Use these keywords in the title.

But make the title catchy, too.

There’s no point making it sound like a keyword stuffer.

15) Be Helpful and Share Other People’s Content

Blogging is always about contributing.

The more you share other people’s content, the more shares you will receive in return.

When you visit a blog and drop a comment, take that extra moment to share the post with your Facebook group, Twitter account, Pinterest board, Linkedin account and anywhere else that you are active.

You can only be active on as many sites as you have time for.

But your connections might be active on different social sites.

It can be FlipBoard, Scoop.it, or some you might not even have heard of.

So when you share a post where you are active, your connections might share it where they are active – even if you are not.

That is how it gets blasted on social media.

16) Post on Web 2.0 sites

The thing about Web 2.0 sites is that they may have a small audience, but there is often a sense of community built up there already.

Another feature I like about those sites is the access to posting.

web 2.0 sites

Your posts on most of these sites get published without moderation.

That way, in a real sense, you are maintaining a blog outside of your own domain.

There are many such places where you can blog, such as Linkedin Pulse, Quora, and Medium.

Some of these sites even allow do-follow links, some referral traffic and a good following that keeps building with every post that you publish there.

17) Testimonials

We use several products, tools, and services that are very helpful for us.

Visit the testimony section of their sites and see if you can add yours.

This is a good way to build link because you are vouching for a product that you like, while the product receives a thumbs-up from someone who genuinely uses and likes it.

The end-user benefits by finding helpful testimonials.

There are plenty of low-quality products with super high-quality testimonials out there.

So, the only way for a good product to stay on top is to leverage sincere testimonials from people like you who are glad to support it.

18) SlideShare

SlideShare is yet another social site and it is owned by Linkedin!

That in itself makes this site worth checking out.

Convert your valuable posts into slides and upload them on SlideShare.

slide-share

This is one of the reasons why Content Repurposing is so much in demand.

You don’t have to write a new article.

Any of your top performing posts will be a good fit for SlideShare.

And since these are just slides, there won’t be any duplicate content issues.

19) Write on Trending Topics

If any topic that is relevant to your blog or niche is trending, make sure to cover it.

Do note that while festivals or holidays trend a lot, that does not necessarily mean that people only do their shopping at those times.

Many shoppers like to do their shopping early.

For a blogger, that means that if you are targeting certain festivals or holidays, you can get sales throughout the year!

20) Do Interviews:

There are many sites that do interviews.

Search for those sites, look up your favorite bloggers and check where they have posted their interviews.

See if you can manage an interview as well.

Here are some sites where you can score an interview opportunity as well!

21) Take part in Roundup posts and Host them as well:

Roundup posts are always in full swing.

Some of our most popular posts from GuestCrew are roundups and they end up getting 3k to 5k shares.

Since roundups include so many people that even after a long time, if someone shares it, it gets picked up by the social media again.

Sort of like evergreen social content.

Contributing to roundups is easy and fetches you a quick link and a mention.

But the real fun is in hosting one, which also involves a lot of work.

The results easily make it worth it.

Here are a few quick things to note for a successful roundup:

  • Choose the roundup topic carefully. It should be related to your niche and your audience.
  • Target those bloggers who have contributed to a roundup previously. Look for new faces as well.  That is how you get unique answers and target influencers because their shares matter.
  • Once the roundup is published, email them the link to share the roundup on social media. Don’t ask for shares in the email, just thank them for their participation.

22) Host a weekly Bloggers Interview on your own site

Blogger interviews are always actionable.

When bloggers share their experience on how they made it this far, it also becomes sort of a roadmap for new bloggers who are starting out.

People look out for these interviews and they keep an eye out if you are able to maintain a schedule for it.

If you run a weekly column for an interview, say #MondayInterview – or something like that – it will attract a lot of eyeballs.

23) Look for local festivals

There are just so many countries in this world with so many festivals of their own!

You don’t even need a niche site for the festivals if you market your content properly.

You can rank for a number of these festivals with your own blog.

24) Do competitor analysis

Make a list of your competitors and look them up.

There are many tools for it but I like the one that is there for a very long time.

Yes – Alexa.

Check their keywords and see what they rank for.

Alexa ranking for donna merrill tribe

In the free version, Alexa only shows the top 5 results.

Alexa rank traffic sources for donna merrill tribe

 

Those are still good enough to get a general idea of what terms they are ranking for and what their top sources for traffic are.

25) Just Do It

This post was supposed to be written somewhere around next week, but I decided to kick myself and I sat down on my laptop for the last 3+ hours and got it completed.

Quit procrastination.

That is a real bad thing.

If you listen to your heart, it will ask you to do the easy tasks first.

Because it is just too easy to leave the difficult ones for later.

Before you realize it, the difficult things will start to drop down further on your to-do list.

Look for the task which is the hardest, most difficult and provides very little fun in doing it – then Just Do It.

    Wow Donna, this was quite the list! I don’t know where to begin….Actually I’ve been spending time on Quora recently – answering a question a day in my niche. I haven’t noticed traffic yet coming from there but I want to give it a little more time.
    I have noticed traffic from Flipboard – sometimes in my 3 top sources! I haven’t shared old posts there or any more than once.
    That’s my question on sites like Flipboard can you share your pots more than once if on different boards? The only place I share more than once is Twitter. Even Facebook I only share once. I may have to rethink that one Donna.
    Guest Crew is not one i have checked out yet, one to add to the list.
    Commenting on other blogs is key I believe to generating traffic and really getting to know other bloggers. It’s almost like visiting them at home 🙂
    Thanks for all these tips Donna. I will be re-reading and sharing this one….

    Hey Lisa,

    Thank you for the comment,

    Yeah, Quora has been very helpful lately in terms of sending traffic back to our own blogs. The consistency of quora is what attracts me most, if this month I get 100+ people from Quora – then with the same amount of time invested next month, will get more traffic, because some of this months traffic will continue to come next month too. Give Quora about an hour or two everyday and keep it consistent – it will be one of your top referral traffic source for sure.

    Am using Flipboard too but haven’t submitted the same article more than once on Flipboard, however I know someone who is using Flipboard far to actively, will forward her your question and wait for her answer.

    Do let us know your feedback on GuestCrew when you have used it – hopefully it will be a good source of referral traffic for your blog.

    Totally agreed with you on Blog commenting – nothing can be as personal in networking as blog commenting,

    thanks,

    What a wonderful and thorough job here.

    I don’t think anybody would need any resource other than this to get on the right path to vastly increasing their blog traffic.

    No push-button, automated solutions here.

    But real strategies used by the pros, yet easy enough to be duplicated by anyone ready to put in some effort.

    Thanks for the wonderful job, and your dedication to this article 🙂

    I can assure your readers that if they make the effort first it will get easier over time. Right now I barely write for my blog, but guess what? People pay me to post their articles right now, so I never have to worry about content and my blog is still getting updated.

    Hi Uttoran and Donna,

    These are some great tips for anyone who is just getting started in the blogging world. Totally agree with you about just blogging and not promoting your content means you’re blog is dead.

    I’ve never heard it called “passive blogging” but I love that term. Blog promotion is the hardest part of growing a blog. It seems like there are so many different ways to drive traffic to our blog. Nothing is worse than posting new content on our blogs that no one is actually reading.

    I am actually choosing to use 3-4 methods and stick with those to see how they work. Taking the time to implement the same strategies for several months helps you get the most bang for your buck.

    If you just implement the method for 1 month and then don’t see the results you want, it doesn’t mean that it’s not working. It just means that maybe you haven’t given it enough time to work.

    Just like blogging, using any of these strategies to grow your blog takes time. You have to be willing to do it effectively for several months. I like how you said to dedicate certain days that you’re not writing a new post to commenting on other blogs.

    I’ve been using this method for about a month now and I’ve definitely started seeing some positive results with this method.

    Thanks for sharing these tips and I know they will help other people who are just starting to grow their blog.

    Have a great day 🙂

      Hey Susan,

      Thank you for the comment,

      I have worked on micro-niche blogs in the past, so passive blogging, passive income etc. are common terms for me! But yes, there is no fun in blogging that way. One really needs to get active and promote their blog to gain the full benefits of blogging.

      Yeah, good to use a handful of methods and use those ideas to the fullest, rather than trying out everything and reaching nowhere. The key is to choose an idea that works and truly stick to it and make it work.

    Hi Donna,
    What a joy to see Uttoran Sen’s Guest post on your page.

    Uttoran brought out almost all the ingredients for a great blog and for its traffic.

    I appreciate his effort ot putting this in order. All 25 tips are essential to get tremendous traffic to our pages.

    The #2 is the one I follow most often. Yes, our value added comments can create two things at a time, one the traffic it brings in and the second one the solid relationship or you call it engagement it brings in is invaluable.

    Of course, I am following most of them in my blogging journey, there are few left out I will be checking out that too shortly.

    Thanks for this amazing post. Thanks Donna for including this great write-up by Uttoran. 🙂

    Keep sharing

      Hey Chery,

      thank you for the comment,

      Yes, procrastination can be a real problem – it is easy to get distracted or keep yourself busy with multi-tasking, but at the end of the day you don’t achieve what you should. One really needs to sit down and get the work done – even if the work at hand is a difficult one.

      I usually work in sessions when it comes to writing the framework for the article – I spend very little time at one go. That way, it is easy to collect more ideas – especially when the sessions are from different time of the day, say early mornings, shower time, evening walk, late night thinking etc.

      Once I have all the points and everything on file – that is when I really need to sit down and write it all. This is where procrastination hits too. So the best thing to do in a condition like this is to just sit down and write it!

      Hi Chery,

      Yes yes yes.

      Just do it!

      As Uttoran says, procrastination is THE real problem.

      I like his idea of working in chunks because it’s easier doing small chunks of work than a single big project. Just seems easier 🙂

    Uttoran these are all smashing tips.

    I use more than a few to drive that sweet blog traffic. On a big time guest posting and blog commenting binge here. Which helps me both drive traffic with few barriers – blog commenting – and, which helps me leveraging my presence quickly – guest posting – diversifying my blog traffic streams.

    Stick to a few basic strategies. Toss in more traffic channels as you get really good at driving traffic through a few established channels. I love guest posting and blog commenting primarily but always am down to learn of new, prospering channels, and I feel I found some today.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Hi Ryan,

      It is so tempting to try out new things, but Uttoran has given us so many that you can really only focus on one or two at a time.

      I’ve always wanted to explore SlideShare and now, I’m inspired to get it started.

      Just seems like a lot of work to put it all together, but maybe I’m just making a big deal out of nothing.

    Hey Uttoran,

    This is a long list of options!

    I only use a few out of these, but with just those few I’m getting great results as far as traffic is concern.

    I started using Quora more often within the last couple of weeks and I can see how my authority is growing on them. I can see how it’s a social site now as compared to when I first signed up a couple of years ago.

    Commenting is huge! I use to comment on an average of 6 blogs per day, 5 days a week. Yes it was a lot of work, but it really got me over the 1000 visitors per month hump. So I definitely recommend this.

    Using Facebook groups will give you a great jump as long as the people in them are active and it’s within your niche. When I first started, they were called blogging tribes and this is where I met some of your successful bloggers like Ryan Biddulph.

    For my next agenda, I think I’m going to look into the sites you recommend for influencer marketing. Although I’m getting better results compared to last year, it doesn’t hurt to look into these site. There’s always room for improvement!

    Thanks for sharing Uttoran! Have a great rest of the week!

      Hey Sherman,

      Thank you for the comment,

      Using a few and making the most out of those is better than testing everything and not getting much out of any.

      Yeah, I too joined Quora as a question and answer site, but now the site is totally different and it is much more of a social site with following other members etc. than just a Q and A site now.

      It is tough to maintain the commenting discipline, but if you can maintain it – 6 comments a day is great. I remember to do 20 a day and reached to 100+ comments a post. It is surely worth it.

      Am part of several facebook groups and share things in those groups actively. There’s plenty of such groups for bloggers and I too have met some very active bloggers in those groups.

      Do let us know your feedback when you have used the Influencer Marketing platforms,

      Hi Sherman,

      I agree with you and Uttoran, that scheduling a core amount blog commenting each day is one of the very best ways to build your blog traffic.

      It’s especially nice since it also builds authentic relationships.

      Facebook groups, as you’ve said, can be good but only if members are real, active and engaged. Too many of them are just link dropping clubs 🙂

    Hi Uttoran, and welcome to Donna’s blog 🙂

    It’s good to see you here, and yes, these are some wonderful ways to increase the traffic of our blogs! Agree with all that you mentioned here as well. Of course, the frequency of how often one should blog is an evergreen topic, and perhaps it would depend on a lot of factors as well.

    I agree about blog commenting, something that’s always worked for me, from day one! Nothing can be better, and that’s the way we’ve built relationships with others, over the years.

    Quora is one place I still need to devote more time, and Reddit too – so good reminders for me there! Pinterest has done wonders for my blog – and is one of the largest traffic sources, so I know for sure it works!

    With time as an issue with most bloggers and marketers, I guess we need to learn the fine art of time management and tap all the above-mentioned places and ways if we really want to have gain natural traffic to our blogs, isn’t it? And it is all possible if we balance our work well.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead, both of you 🙂

      Hey Harleena,

      thank you for the comment and good to see you here too,

      Yeah, blogging frequency will totally depend on so many factors. On my micro niche blogs where content quantity matters, my frequency is a lot more compared to blogs where engagement is a top priority.

      Absolutely, and blog commenting is something that keeps us connected on so many blogs – this one for example! Its comments that keep us connected.

      Yes, Pinterest and Quora are some of my top referral sources. Reddit has been great for short time boosts, but at times I have received over 10k+ uniques in a few hours time!

      Time management is crucial, you need to be active everywhere and make the most of what is available today – but you only have 24 hours and if your blogging hours are limited with a full time job – it gets even more difficult. Time management is the only way out.

    This is such a valuable post Uttoran.

    But I would recommend that people do some research on finding out where their audience spend time online. Find places where your audience is most active online.

    Forget about what’s working for everyone and focus on placing your brand in front of the right audience.

    That’s just my 2 cents 😉

    Hey Uttoran,

    Driving the traffic to any blog is one of the biggest challenges and people are really struggling for that.

    I totally agree with the concept of blog commenting. People still maintain the human bonds and help each other.

    The more you spread your words, the more you get an exposure. I have been using it since my started days and it has brought me up.

    Inbound is a place where you can connect with many people from the different parts of the world. You can also use BizSugar and GrowthHackers.

    Testimonials can also help you build your authority and drive more people to your blog.

    An informative post indeed.

      Yes, BizSugar is yet another site which I use actively to promote and connect. The other two has a larger and more active user base, so trending on those helps in getting a lot more traffic!

      Stumbleupon has been really active in sending me regular visitors – there’s very little that I do over at stumbleupon, like a bit of adding my own posts and posts that are related to my niches etc. – and in return they send me hundred’s of visitors everyday. Its an excellent return on time!

      Webhosts are usually difficult to get a reply from – with Temok, so far it has been great!

    Creating engaging content, writing pillar articles, sharing on various networks, guest posting, blogger outreach, retweets and sharing about other bloggers also helps to boost traffic and bring more exposure.

    Hello Donna,

    This is indeed a very informative post. Boosting website traffic is what every blogger is constantly struggling for. This is obviously because the more traffic you have coming to your site, the more money you will be able to make. Therefore, if you’re not getting any traffic at all, or getting only a little, you will not be able to make any significant income from your blog.

    Coming to this post, all the 25 tactics listed are indeed superb and actionable. What remains right now is the ability to take action towards what we learn. Sadly, most people will finish consuming this masterpiece and fail to do something with it.

    I bet that if marketers are often taken the time to implement the things they learn every day, there won’t be much complaints and frustrations in the blogosphere.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Yes, totally agree with you – traffic is what brings income, visibility and growth.

      Very true about people not taking action and that happens to the best of us. That is why I added the last point, about really doing it right away, rather than putting it for later. Just Do It! Take out some time, sit back – and get it done.

    Donna,

    An amazing amount of information and suggestions for ways to certainly increase traffic and engagement on your blogs. Only problem I have is how to find time. It has been difficult for me to even find time to create my next blog post with having a weekly radio show, and creating and hosting virtual summits. These summits require so many hours of getting all the pieces in order and also the time it takes to do the video, to write up the speaker’s info so I ask good questions and then to do the promotions and send out emails to my followers, on social media, etc.
    I had signed up with Digg, and Redditt and so many other sites many years ago – and yet I don’t go there very much.
    I have also been a featured guest, interviewed on audio or video for about 20 virtual summits at this point, and some radio shows, and a few TV shows. Each one usually also requires that I send out emails to my list and post on social media.
    So I haven’t been able to add these other tactics as I keep just trying to keep my head above water. I do love the live video and live audio interviews, when I am being interviewed and when I am learning about someone else.
    One thing that is happening is that my list keep growing and my new connections keep expanding.

    Warmly,

    Dr. Erica

    Hey Erica,

    Thank you for the comment,

    Yes, I know – Time is always an issue and the more you get busy, the less time you have for blogging. There are a few ways you can overcome this:

    Prioritize – With little time on your hands, you might want to do things that are more important. Like adding the next blog post in time, which is more important than sharing old posts etc.

    Hire and Outsource – If the other side of your business is taking more time then hopefully it is making you more money too! Use those funds to hire support.

    Go for Premium services – On sites like JR, VCB, GuestCrew and others – there is that option to upgrade to a pro user where you will get credits that can be used to promote your content. You can skip that part where you have to share other people’s content to get credits. That will save you valuable time.

    Congrats on your list and connections – if those are growing then you are already making positive progress,

    thanks,

    Hi Uttoran and Donna. That’s a long list of options. For now I spend most of my promoting time in commenting and on ViralContentBee. I like VCB because it is easy and it has introduced me to a lot of blogs and bloggers that I might not have otherwise found. One thing you said about VCB is that is is highly moderated. Once you’ve been sharing your posts on it for a while, the moderation goes away and your posts are automatically approved. I don’t remember how long that took but I’m pretty sure it was less than 6 months.

      Yeah, VCB is really helpful and the heavy moderation actually helps. That way, you know what you are sharing – and it is almost rare that something you share isn’t really that good.

      Six months sounds like a really long moderation period – but good to know that you are finally out of it. Says a lot about the quality that the community at VCB has.

    Nice article. Everybody desires more blog traffic and there’s no shortcut to it. Most people fail to realize this. You have to work hard to gain followers. You got to up your marketing game. There are tons of online communities nowadays and as you said, Quora, Reddit and Instagram are your friends. Make a strong web presence and you’re good to go.

    Hey Uttoran & Donna,

    Valuable tips. Although I have never tried getting tons of traffic as I love getting targeted users only, but some of your methods really work like blog commenting, it gives me 20% of my traffic as I love commenting.

    So, thanks for the amazing tips Uttoran.

      Hey Jeannette,

      thank you for the comment, always good to hear positive feedback,

      Yes, the traffic needs to be targeted and that is what all these tips are about. You need to find related questions on quora, your niche specific twitter followers etc. Everything that you do online has to be targeted – else the traffic won’t help as much!

    Hello Uttoran,

    You have shared almost all the tips and ideas that can be put into use to increase blog traffic. Thanks for these great tips.

    Blog commenting still works for targeted traffic but if you are here to earn, Search Traffic is still the king.

    Keep Writing such amazing posts.

      Hey Atish,

      Thank you for the comment, good to see you here!

      Yeah, for earning from affiliate marketing, adsense etc. search traffic is important. This is something that I do for my micro-niche blogs. But to keep a blog active, one needs to use blog commenting etc. and keep the activity going!

    Wow! This is extraordinary. I have never heard of GuestCrew until now. Thanks Donna for sharing. I was actually suffering huge traffic lost before I found your blog. I’m sure testing some of those sites you recommended will save me. I’m getting more serious with StumbleUpon and Pinterest to see if they could help gain my traffic back.

    Keep sharing exciting post like never before. I enjoy reading your post.

      Hey Emenike,

      Thank you for your comment,

      GuestCrew will be happy to have you – am sure you will find plenty of social action over there.

      Stumbleupon and Pinterest are both mainstream social media sites, they are there for a very long time and both of them have sent referral traffic consistently to all my sites. Am sure they will send you some very serious traffic!

      PS. Sorry for the delayed replies – just catching up on the rest of the comments now,

      thanks,

    Hi Donna,

    Amazing article. I never heard about some of the tools mentioned here. VCB is a great companion for bloggers as well as marketers. I am using it regularly for promoting contents.

    Revive old post is another tool for the WordPress users to automatically share contents on social media. Recently I went through a social media marketing app Kuku.io that lets you schedule and share posts on several social sites including Facebook groups and google+ pages.

    Take care,

    Have you a nice week ahead.

      Hey Manoj,

      Thank you for the comment,
      Always good to hear positive feedback, am sure you will find the rest of the tools helpful too. Am a regular user of VCB and have always liked its membership base.

      Thank you for letting us know about your kuku app, will give it a try soon. I usually like reviving my own posts and guest posts that I wrote – manually, but surely having a tool can help in the process.

      thanks,

    I use more than a few to drive that sweet blog traffic. On a big time guest posting and blog commenting binge here. Which helps me both drive traffic with few barriers – blog commenting – and, which helps me leveraging my presence quickly – guest posting – diversifying my blog traffic streams.
    Stick to a few basic strategies. Toss in more traffic channels as you get really good at driving traffic through a few established channels. I love guest posting and blog commenting primarily but always am down to learn of new, prospering channels, and I feel I found some today.
    Thanks for sharing

      Having more referral streams are always helpful, good to know that you have found some today,

          Thank you so much for checking out GuestCrew, I have followed you on GuestCrew!

          About Facebook Pages – actually, it is not VCB – I think facebook pages have changed some sort of algo because of which you will only be able to use facebook personal profiles for sharing content via. any system … I have checked this accross several platforms. On our own platform, we are still trying to implement the pages and we should be able to make it compatible soon,

            Thanks for the follow that’s interesting about Facebook pages. It’s no loss on VCB because you are limited in what you can share to your page cause its more niche and should be more about you than others. I have sent you a message via Twitter

        Hey Emory,

        Thank you for the comment,

        Activities can be completed, processes can’t!

        Most of the tips requires a dedicated amount of time – even 10 Minutes will do – but has to be regular. Profile building is something that has to be done everyday, be it Reddit or Inbound – you have to spend some time on it everyday!

      Hey David,

      Thank you for the comment,

      Yeah, that is the issue – there’s just so many things to do in a day, it becomes impossible to do everything. You have to prioritize and do what your limited time will allow. That way, you can make the most out of it,
