You are probably aware that there are. Millions of people online. Who have a blog or website.That gets very little traffic.
Are you one of them?
In this blog post.
I am going to reveal to you what methods of getting traffic. Still work for me today. And to get the ball rolling. I’m gonna start with.
You get no prizes for guessing. That writing my own original content is. Absolutely my number one method of getting consistent and targeted traffic to my blog.
It works on so many levels.
But. Undoubtedly the biggest benefit to me is. Getting good page rankings on the 3 major search engines. Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
If writing your own content is. Not one of your strong points.
You can get other people to write your content for you. By allowing them certain blog privileges.
A perfect example of this technique in action. Is on the Comment Luv web site.
Andy Bailey the owner of the site. Allows people to submit their own original articles and. Subject to staff approval.
The best articles are selected, and then published on his blog.
I should add that. By far the biggest contributor of articles to Comment Luv is
Andy Bailey himself.
So what does that tell you about writing original content?
I have been doing blog commenting seriously for a couple of months now. And the results have been encouraging to say the least.
The secret of getting targeted traffic using this method. Is to know which blogs are worth your time commenting on.
What I personally look out for.
Are blogs that already have a large following. And more importantly have readers who actively participate.
It’s no good leaving a comment on a blog.
That only one man and his dog will see.
On the other hand.
I have seen plenty of blogs that get vast amounts of traffic, But have, little or no connection with their readers.
In my experience.
Finding blog owners. Who concentrate on providing good quality content.
And do not try to hard sell their readers into buying something.
Tend to attract far more comments.
Speaking of comments.
This is a important point for you to remember.
Do not use software to post your comments.
It always looks like spam, and it will be a complete waste of your time.
Even while you are reading this post.
I am receiving hundreds of these automated comments. And all of them end up in the same place.
In my spam folder. Where I delete them with one click.
What you need to do is.
Write real comments. That are on the topic of the post, and are least a paragraph long.
YES! I know this is a painstakingly slow process.
But trust me. It is the best way for you to GET TRAFFIC.
3)Affiliate Link Cloaking
My third method is kinda strange. Because I’m not 100% sure why it works.
All I know is that since I started using Pretty Link Pro on my blog.
My Alexa rank has constantly risen day by day.
I had been using the FREE version of Pretty Link for well over a year. Without any problems. It did what it said on the tin.Cloaked my Affiliate Links.
For no reason, other than wanting to to keep my blog looking professional. I decided to upgrade. And at this moment in time. I am more than happy with my decision.
Blog Update March 2012 Pretty Link Pro stopped raising my Alexa Rank once my blog traffic ranking hit 300,000
Going back to content.
There are endless blog owners who will tell you that you have to write x amount of articles a week. To get consistent traffic.
I can honestly tell you that this is not true.
My last blog post before this one. was 3 weeks ago.
And in that time. My traffic has kept coming and coming.
The reason for this is…
Because I promote everything that I write.
(As far as writing goes)
You want to get more for doing less. Not less for doing more
All of the traffic that comes to my blog is 100% FREE.
At this moment in time. I spend no money on advertising.
What is working for me. Can also work for you.
Providing that you realize getting a lot of targeted traffic to your blog. Will take time and there are no quick fixes.
