Blog Project: 30 Traffic Generation Tips

By Daniel Scocco

First of all a big “thank you” for every one who participated. As I said before the number of entries surprised me (and the quality as well, I will definitely apply some of those tips myself).

Now, without further delay, the 30 Traffic Generation Tips:

1. Sridhar Katakam
Keep track of blogs and leave comments on them. A good way to keep the conversation going is to install a MyBlogLog widget and visit the blog of people visiting your site.

2. Ian Delaney
Nothing creates long-term traffic more than value. Consider writing posts with resources or explaining how things work. Useful things get linked to and they get onto, which is far better long-term than a digg front page.

3. Yousif H

The secret to any traffic generating strategy starts with crafting a powerful and effective value proposition that shapes your brand’s image. Make sure to clearly echo your company’s value proposition on your website, stationary, postcards and even business cards to ensure consistent messaging.

4. Scott Townsend
Inform search engines and aggregators like Technorati (using the ping functionality) when your blog is updated, this should ensure maximum traffic coming from those sources. (check the List of Ping Services)

5. Kyle
Simplify. Pay attention to complex issues in your field of work. It may be a big long publication that is hard to wade through or a concept that is hard to grasp. Reference it and make a shorter “for dummies” version with your own lessons learned and relevant tips. When doing this, I have been surprised to find that the simplified post will appear before the more complex version in search results. Perhaps this is why it results in increased traffic; people looking for more help or clarification on the subject will land on your blog.

6. Grant Gerver
Try to be polemic. I write obsessively about all-things political from the left-wing perspective in the form of humorous, sarcastic one-liners.

7. Daniel
A simple tip that will probably boost your page views: install a translator plugin. I decided to use a paid plugin for this, but if I am not wrong there are some free ones as well. The translation is not very good, as you can imagine, but it helps to attract readers that are not fluent in English.

8. Rory
Submit articles to blog carnivals ( that are related to your niche. Your article almost always gets posted, and it must generate a handful of visitors, at least.

9. Ramen Junkie
Newsgroups. I always see a spike when I post a review to a newsgroup.

10. Eric Atkins
Create a new design for your website. Not only will it be more attractive to your regular readers, but you can submit it to some CSS gallery showcase sites that feature great designs. This will give you exposure on those sites while generating a lot of traffic and backlinks from those types of sites.

11. Megan Taylor
Participate in conversations on related blogs. Start conversations on your own blog. Don’t just post about a story and leave it at that, engage your audience, ask questions and call to action.

12. Guido
Comment on blogs, write useful content and make good friends on forums.

13. Brian Auer
You must be active to generate traffic. I post comments on other blogs that are related to mine, and I post my site link in my signature at the forums. Spread the word about your blog and it will certainly attract readers.

14. Shankar Ganesh
Just browse around and you will surely get visitors to your blog. Also try to join as many communities as possible that are related to your topic.

15. Andrew Timberlake
A great tip for generating traffic is off-line by including your url in all your off-line liturature from business cards, letterheads, pamphlets, adverts through in-store signage if applicable. I even have our website on my vehicle.

16. Cory OBrien
Read lots of other blogs. Leave trackbacks. Make sure your blog is optimized for search engines. Leverage social bookmarking sites like digg (both for new ideas and for traffic).

17. Jester
Leave comments on other blogs. If you’re already reading them, it takes
just a couple of seconds to leave a message agreeing or disagreeing
with the author, you get to leave a link to your site, and you will almost
ALWAYS get traffic from your comments.

18. Goerge Manty
Post 3-5 times a day. Use ping services like pingomatic or set up wordpress to ping some of the ping services. Engage your readers. Put up polls, ask them questions, give them quizes, free tools, etc. Make them want to come back and tell their friends about you.

19. Engtech
Community. It’s one word but it is the most important one when it comes to blogging. The only “blog metric” that makes sense is the vibrant community of readers it has. Building a community around your blog will bring you increased traffic, but how do you start? The boilerplate response to building traffic is always “SEO, social networking sites, and commenting on blogs” but it can be simplified to “be part of a community”. The easiest way to seed your blog is with an already existing community. But the only way to do that is to be part of the community yourself.

20. Chris
Squidoo Lenses are a good way to generate traffic. By using a lense,
you can generate your own custom “community” of webpages, including some
of the more popular pages in your “neighborhood.” Including your own
webpage in such a list is a good way of generating traffic.

21. Splork
I’ve had good success writing articles and submitting them to EzineArticles. Articles that have been written from well-researched keyword phrases and accepted by EzineArticles tend to rank very high in Google for that search term. Placing anchor text in the footer of those articles so the reader can visit my relevant website has always increased my site traffic.

22. Jen Gordon
I came upon some unexpected traffic when my blog popped up on some css design portals like and If you can put some time into the concept behind and design for your blog, I’d recommend submitting your site to a design portal not only for
additional traffic but to build an additional community around your site.

23. Kat
I’ve recently gotten involved with several “MySpace-like” community sites that focus on my target audience. I share my thoughts in their forums, post intros to my real blog on their system blog and I’ve even created a group for my specific niche. It’s been very, very successful for me.

24. Inspirationbit
Well, obviously everyone knows that social bookmarking sites like Digg,, etc. bring lots of traffic. But I’m now submitting some of my articles to (a digg like site for bloggers), and I always get not a bad traffic from there.

25. Mark Alves
Participate in Yahoo Answers and LinkedIn Answers where you can demonstrate your expertise, get associated with relevant keywords and put your URL out there.

26. Tillerman
Be the first to write a post about the ‘Top Ten Blogs’ in your niche. The post will rank highly in any general search for blogs in your niche and other bloggers in your niche write about the post and link to it.

27. Nick
Participating in forums is a great way to get loyal readers. Either link baiting people in your signature or posting great advice and tips will give you high quality traffic, which will result in return visitors.

28. Brandon Wood
A simple trick I’ve used to increase traffic to my blog is participate in group writing projects. In fact, that’s what I’m doing right now.

29. Alan Thomas
Don’t forget your archives. I just posted a roundup of all interviews I did over the past seven months. One of them generated a new link and a big traffic spike from a group of users that look like they will be loyal readers now.

30. KWiz
Write something controversial. I don’t think it’s good to write something controversial just for the purpose of getting traffic necessarily (especially if it’s only for that purpose and you’re being disingenuous), but it works.

31. Dennis Coughlin
Find the best blogs on your niche and contact the authors. Introduce yourself and send a link of your blog. This might help them to discover your blog, read it and possibly link to it.

  • Dennis Coughlin

    I’ve posted all of the links on my site.

    Thanks for the organising this cool project.


  • inspirationbit

    I’ve posted everyone on my site as well. I’m very glad I was one of the participants of this great project. Thanks, Daniel!

  • Daniel

    thanks you guys for participating.

    also lets chat about how we can improve the project next month, I am open for suggestions.

  • inspirationbit

    How about getting answers on “What everyone learned from having their sites submitted to Digg?”. I’m sure everyone has something to say about Digg…

  • engtech

    Crazy idea guys.

    Changing the order of the posts will help deter “duplicate content” penalties.

    So taking the 15 minutes to reorder the list into the order of your favorites is worth everyone’s time.

    Converting it to an order list makes resorting it easier.

    Hopefully this will make for cut-and-paste code.

  • Daniel

    Actually I think I already have the topic for the next edition, but stories about Digg is definitely a good option, i will write it down.

    I would also like to know if we should change the rules for participating or keep it as they are, possibly include a winner, etc.

  • engtech

    Here is the text as an HTML ordered list.

    Useful if you want to rearrange it in order of your favorites:

  • engtech

    @Daniel: The only rule I would change is ask people to reorder the list in some way to keep the posts from looking like duplicated content.

  • inspirationbit

    I think including a Winner would make the projects even more attractive. But who’ll be the judge – you, Daniel? 🙂 I’m ok with that – you’re the boss here 🙂

  • Daniel


    I just changed the post with the following paragraph:

    “Secondly, for the participants that will now write a post with a link to the entries, I would like to ask you guys to place a link directly to the participant blogs. I was thinking about letting everyone include the tips, but I am not sure whether this will create penalties for duplicated content or not.”

    I guess you point about the duplicated content is relevant. I will research more about it to see whether re-ordering the list would eliminate the penalties.

  • Daniel

    inspirationbig, if we adopt engtech’s advice making people order the list according to their preference we can count the tip that was nomitated on the first place more time and declare it the winner

  • inspirationbit

    I’ve re-arranged the order on my post. Thanks to Engtech for the List code. Hope re-ordering would eliminate the duplicate content’s penalties.

  • engtech

    I’m not entirely sure the re-order will change the duplicate content penalty in search engines, but at the very least it will increase the chances for everyone to be in the top spots of the list.

    Plus everyone will read the list.


  • engtech

    Also, the duplicate content penalty isn’t a big deal since the traffic from this article will be from the associates sites, not from search engines.

  • engtech

    I’ve got my post up here:

  • Nick

    I’m publishing my list now
    thanks for the awesome project

  • engtech

    Things to watch out for:

    – Rory link might be missing
    – Megan Taylor’s link is missing the http://

  • Tillerman

    I posted the list. Goodnes knows what my regular readers will think of it. They come to my blog for stories about sailing.

  • Kyle

    Interesting tips everyone… and thanks for organizing Daniel.

    I’ve simplified the list a bit and linked to the actual tip. If I have summarized your tip incorrectly, let me know and I’ll fix it.

  • Splork

    List posted. One thing I did to try to avoid any dupe penalties is 1) reorder the list and 2) write a couple of intro paragraphs. It should help.

  • Steve Renner

    This Software will help you to Generate high Quality links back to your site. It’s called the PR Backlink Generator.

    Thanks for this project, I have added my blog entry.

    The idea here is to promote different blogs, get links but also to to encourage on another to visit and/or interact with other blogs.

    The one thing this project didn’t do was encourage visiting other blogs because all the tips are in one place.

    If we each wrote our tips on our own post and your provided links to those posts, we would be able to get more effective link text for promotion purposes, we would need to visit other blogs for the actual tips and there would be no duplicate content problem because you’re not actually posting the content, just links.

    Not sure if I’ve thought through it properly but the ideas there.

  • George

    I put up my list here:

    I added comments to each tip.

    Great group of tips.

  • Sridhar Katakam

    Posted on my blog:

  • Daniel

    Andrew, I agree with you, maybe next time we can make bloggers post the tips on their blogs (I was not sure about this one because not all blogs deal with blogging tips).

    Also thanks for everyone spreading the link love.

  • Wally

    Hi I get alot of traffic from using a plugboard on my blog as well as traffic pods exchange. Blog explosions blog tycoon is a great service too. LOVE your blog. Its the kinda blog mine wants to grow up to be like.

  • Daniel

    Thanks for the nice words Wally. I will definitely check your blog out.

  • Anthony

    In comment 18 Goerge Manty suggests posting 3-5 times per day. I’ve recently added a second author to my blog and lately we have been posting up to 6 articles daily. What do you guys (and gals) think, can there be too much of a good thing? Is there a limit to how many articles a reader can find valuable per day?

  • Quest

    I found this great website with a whole lot of helpful links. You are going want the bookmark this, for sure.
    Here it is:

  • Daniel

    Anthony, 6 posts per day could be an overkill, depending on your topic. News-related blogs could get around with it, but I am not sure about your subject.

  • Mark Alves

    My post is up now, too. Thanks again for making this possible, Daniel.

  • Maki

    This meme-like blog project thingy seems pretty cool. Will be joining it the next time round.

    Just subscribed to your feed, Daniel.. keep up the excellent work! 🙂

  • Daniel

    Maki, thanks for subscribing, I am looking forward for your entry on the next project!


    This is wonderful information. It looks like I have some work ahead of me, but I’ve also been able to quickly confirm that I’ve been doing some of the suggested things correctly already. Thanks again for another great post.

  • Kin Lane

    Good to hear these tips from everyone employing them as well. Would like to see a cleaned up list without the duplicates giving everyone a daily worksheet they can work from!

    Maybe I will compile when I find time.

  • engtech


    This copy of the list is very clean / organized:

  • Mac Utopia

    Great post and ideas, infact I found quite a few useful ideas on your site and am now a new RSS subscriber 🙂

  • nora chiang

    saludos y gracis por visitar

  • Sherrilynne Starkie

    I pushed this one to a new client. Thanks for this.

  • Vinod Ponmanadiyil

    Another practice that I follow is to keep your Blog URL as your IM presence information. ie. as Google Talk, Yahoo!, MSN Status.
    It works well with friends especially if they are in MyBlogLog community .

  • Jones

    Excellent web site I will be visiting often

  • Nick

    Thank you for excellent tips. I would add some of my obserwations. Keep active on your blog, there are always questions and spam. Kill spam and answer all the questions, even if “I don’t know” is the only answer you can give, still if keeps thing running and visitors “semi-satisfied”. Once I was on vacation and did not touch my blog for a couple of weeks. The drop of traffic was like 50%.

  • jennifer

    This is some really great advice and for all of us bloggers it needs to be taken to heart.

  • Thomas

    great tips…one more: pay to advertise your site 🙂

  • Dave

    Nice site, help me out?

  • Trakin

    Even after reading so many lists on the web for traffic building, I found this one interesting. One thing I noticed was the links you provided are linked to main page and not any speicific post or related point that you talk about.
    Why is that ??
    Thanks for your list !

  • kam

    thank you for these great ideas

  • Girish

    This is really a great list though this can better condensed and organized.

  • sveta

    Great Site – really useful information!o

  • Doug Barger

    Hi Daniel, and participants in the 30 traffic-generation-tips,

    I found this blog when doing a search on list building tips.
    You are actually the first listing for that phrase in Google.

    I could not leave this discussion group without including a link to a prized possession that has resulted in more traffic than I thought was possible without paying for it. Once you see how this system works, you will know exactly why I believe that it will be the number one traffic generator very soon (once it’s discovered by more).

    Cool tips actually. Not all of them, but tip number 7 , the one about blogcarnival.

  • Musestech

    Its really good article.

    thanks for everyone’s response.

  • Chris

    From my erxperience the most powerful way to generate content is to create a unique post and then submit to the likes of Digg. Good content will then soon spread. All of the above are useless unless your content is unique and good.

  • Quest

    This article has lots of good nuggets in it. Also another way to generate loads of traffic is with “Long Tail Marketing.”

    Here is a website that successfully uses long tail marketing.

  • oladipo simeon

    i just need to know how to generate more traffic to my site thanks

  • Nancy

    Thanks for the tips. It will be interesting to see the results when I try out some of these ideas

  • azriman sahril

    There are many advantages of your web blog above a website, except it’s easy to setup and free. You can put every thing in your blog: from a couple of lines what it is on your mind or your new article just published elsewhere, or a product review. In principle, a blog is the same as a website, but you will need to update more frequently to get the visitors to your site. A major advantage of your web blog here above a website to getting major search engines like Google and Yahoo to visit your blog frequently is a technique called “pinging”. It’s a method of notifying all of the major search engines and blog directories, each time that you have updated your blog. The search engines will come and to take a look at your blog, thereby increasing traffic to your blog. If you link your blog, the search engines will follow the links from the blog pointing to your sites. This will help the search engine rankings of your sites as well!

  • MD

    this is brilliant in its simplicity!!!

  • Polin Armsley

    great post, the best method I probably have to say is leave a comment

  • Leo Hanes

    I especially found the tip about simplifying comples tasks to be an eyeopener…

    How many times I have found the “documentation”for a project , software , or a “simple”installation to assume I already knew far more about th etopic than I did….I constantly get questions about things I think are simple,,,,,,but for somebody who has never heard of trackback, pinging, ftp, or “fill in the blanks” it can be overwhelming

    Provides me lots of ideas to write about

    Leo Hanes

  • Frederrick Abrugart

    Another way is through article and press distribution. Write a good article and submit it to free press or article services. But my favourite is participating in relevant forums. It never fails to invite good traffic to my site.

  • sergey

    thanks for the tips

  • Iversen

    Thanks For the Post..very useful..

  • Code4Gold

    I’ve found that posting consistently and building up a large repitoire of articles over time is the real secret to generating traffic. Also, another tip is to simplify the titles of your posts to basic keywords and don’t overstuff the titles with unnecessary jibberish. A tight, concise title will usually draw you a wealth of traffic from the search engines. It’s very important for many new bloggers to recognize “the things you do today will come back to you tomorrow”. When I started out on my first few blogs two years ago, I was getting little to no traffic. Instead of concentrating on finding traffic sources, I focused on creating quality content and keeping my blogs updated at least 3-5 times per week. After two years and with some of the blogs past 300 posts, the traffic just keeps pouring in.


    nice tips, I will definately try some..

  • Blogging Magazin

    Nice source of inspiration. Thanks a lot.

  • arshad

    orkut is the best place to get traffic ; but post ur site address only in relevant areas , i mean if u have a blog on seo , do not post on a community named ” pamela anderson ” .that’d annoy the moderators !

  • Paul Dumas

    I am relatively new to the world of blogging, but I must say that in terms of backlinks and page rankings that participating in blogs is easily one of the best ways to promote your site popularity within the big search engines. Thanks for the tips here!

    Submit your site to free (or paid if you have the budget) directories. Make a tee shirt and put it up on Cafe Press with a link to your site. Make a video and put it on Youtube and MetaCafe with a link back to your site.

  • How to sell your house

    One thing that does not work is buying traffic.

    You have probably seen those ads – “10,000 real visitors to your site just $9.95”

    Don’t believe it.
    I paid for this via PayPal and then watched what happened. All I got were pings from all over Russia – each visit spent less than 0 seconds on the site, did not click on a single link and the bounce rate was 100%.

    This amounted to nothing more than a slow rolling DOS attack using BOTs. Even if they did use popunders or some such, having them pop up or under on some Russian surfer’s screen – who does not read English – does me absolutely no good whatsoever.

    I wrote them a nasty letter and demanded a refund and within hours got my money right back.

    I don’t know how they could get away with this, unless the customer’s site had a lot of traffic already and they were really dumb with statistics.

  • Jason A. Hendricks

    There is some very good information here. I actually incorporate many of these ideas into my own blog already, but have to stand by ‘community’ as being one of the biggest audience getters. Not enough can ever be said about the importance of links, forums, back-links, etc. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to larger sites-just because they get more traffic does not mean they won’t support what you do.

  • miro

    Some good points and all will generate traffic but no-one has mentioned the THE biggest traffic generator of all in the last two years…

    What is it?


    The great thing about it is that there are so many places to upload your videos and then link to them. Tubemogul is great and only needs one upload for distribution and tracking to all the most popular sites… I use it all the time… Oh, and it’s free.

    I suggest that all small business owners introduce video marketing somewhere in their campaigns.

    How about introducing yourself by video on your blog… you don
    ‘t see it very often do you?

    so far stumble upon and reddit has been the winner for me. For last hour only they have sent me 300 unique visitors.
    When comparing traffic from social media networks i prefer the reddit traffic the most. They tend to spend more in the site when comparing with su and digg visitors.
    I tried blogrush and it was a completely useless. And while myblog show me the visitors, bloctalog send me visitors 🙂

    Simplify. Pay attention to complex issues in your field of work. It may be a big long publication that is hard to wade through or a concept that is hard to grasp. Reference it and make a shorter “for dummies” version with your own lessons learned and relevant tips. When doing this, I have been surprised to find that the simplified post will appear before the more complex version in search results.

    Question? Are there ANY ethical and successful online marketers?

    Yes and he has brought me traffic

    From my experience online in the beginning my anwser would have been
    a resounding no,but gradually I began to find a few online operators
    who had integrity and some professional standards.

    For anyone who has been on the treadmill of Internet Marketing and
    attempted to learn about making money online and been the victim
    of any one of thousands of self appointed money making Guru’s online.

    I can report that I have at last found a man who has a real product
    with real lessons and a great professional system.

    John Reese is one of only a few online marketers that I have found
    that does not constantly spam me with upsell offers on products of
    poor or no quality and who geniunely seems to want people who buy
    his products to really succeed just like he has.

    John love your products and love your attitude.
    I truely believe you have given me the information and the skills
    to make an ethical online fortune and to built an online business
    to be proud of.

  • Chris7mas

    I think the second one is one of the best tip ever, generally available. People automatically come to a good source of information, just because they need it, and it’s normal that such an article will be linked and referred to. Although I had an article hitting Digg’s front page around two months ago, I could also observe that articles at which I worked harder and more passionate, with personal impressions but also good documentation, have much more success over time. Also, their click through rate is bigger than other articles.

    2-Consider writing posts with resources or explaining how things work. Useful things get linked to and they get onto

    3-Participate in conversations on related blogs. Start conversations on your own blog. Don’t just post about a story and leave it at that, engage your audience, ask questions and call to action.

    4-Participate in Yahoo Answers and LinkedIn Answers where you can demonstrate your expertise, get associated with relevant keywords and put your URL out there.

    5-Participating in Forums and Discussion Groups with a signature included.

    Thanks so much for the list! As I write very niched topics, it’s hard to get ‘more’ out there. I like Sridhar’s idea of MyBlogLog because there are a few dozen blogs that are similar to mine. Should help to reach out more.

  • gaus surahman

    Another tip from me 🙂
    Create a GPL or opensource project, blog theme, freeware or whatever. Be dedicated to make it all the best shot you can give. Newton III Law will fall upon you. You give something good to someone, you’ll get something nice in return. It’s also known as good karma.

    Hi, dont forget as well!

  • slac

    Thanks for the info!

  • Torrent Traffic

    Thanks for all the advice, my colleague has learned quite a bit.


  • Hooshmand Moslemi

    What I have mostly noticed here is the FREE methods of generating traffic. Although using PPC for advertising written post on blogs is not a popular method, I have seen a few successful bloggers doing that, too.

    Well, why would I bother myself to pay while I could generate more traffic for FREE?! That’s why I see only free methods mentioned above.

    Anyway, we have to always think about 2 main goals when we are trying to get some traffic.

    1. Generating Traffic which means getting real targeted visitors to our website from different methods and various channels.

    2. Branding which means making people to see you as the expert in the industry and getting more and more popular.

    Hope we take these tips into account when we are trying to promote our blogs and websites.

    Thanks for this informative post which is a great combination of valuable thoughts and ideas. It’s really appreciated.



  • Chris Mollo

    Thank you so much to everyone who contributed in this article. These tips are all fantastic and I’m going to try and implement them all in my new blog. Thanks!

  • Alan

    I wonder if posting comments on blogs generates traffic? I don’t often click on other comment poster’s names but maybe somebody will click on mine?

    Google Analyticator, tell me if it works please 😉

  • Almostds

    Thanks! Does anyone know any specific tips for image-only blogs? My Farside-esque blog makes it difficult to have lots of keywords and link—hm.

  • Benu

    Yeah, the most is very informative. It a great help to me & others will also like it. Do visit my blog.

  • righteous

    I like the idea of participating in yahoo answers. Unfortunately yahoo is extremely strict and they will rip your post if they even get a whiff of spam.

  • Etienne Savard

    Great list, thanks!

  • Ms. Freeman

    Leaving valuable comments definitely seems to work best, along with guest blogging for others in your niche.

  • Gary

    Great list as usual.

    Got some work to do now for my new blog, thanks to you lol.

  • Cizal

    I really liked this article and it gave me a lot of new ideas! I’ve actually tried to create more traffic to my blog even though it isin’t finished yet (designwise). I’ve found a lot of blogs writing about ways to increase traffic, but this must be one of the best. Especially because this article isin’t written by one blogger that did research on the topic, but because these are bloggers who have tried the stuff out and are now giving their opinions on what worked for them.

  • Rocky

    Glad that so many person participated in this topic. There are so many ways on how to improve traffic in a blog. I definitely agree with Megan Taylor that conversation is the best way of driving traffic on blog. Reader engagement is one of the most important thing that you have on your blog. “Don’t just tell the story. Ask your reader what they want.”

  • Teen Blogger

    Great List.

    We all are in need of traffic so this will be useful.

  • Blogbooze

    Nice article I really loved it. its always

    1. Reading others blogs
    2. Commenting on them
    3. Get the ideas and writing good articles
    4. Publish them with back links
    5. Bookmarking them in Social Networks

    That’s it. At the end of the day you have done your basics right and acheived your goals

  • Jack Kinsella

    Your project served me in two ways.

    Firstly I got some great perspectives on marketing from the content.

    Secondly, I saw how great a response this had so have started my own project, to get productivity bloggers to talk about productivity and then post the results on my blog.

    Thank you doubly so.

  • Fire Extinguishers

    Im really getting into reading other peoples blogs and making contributions to them. Im thinking a good blog is well worth putting the effort into.

  • Thriveni

    Most of these methods don’t really generate traffic, but increase your backlinks. This in turn increases your rank and increases your search engine traffic.

    Unless you have a link from a hight traffic site.

  • Patrick Kallie

    I have to agree with Thriveni, you main thing should be to increase your overall rankings, when you do this you are almost guaranteed to get more traffic.

  • Christopher Allen

    It’s a relevant. High page rank is a tell tail sign that you have good content, links in, etc.

    The main point is that I think is being made is to be social for one and it will come back around. Similarly, leave comments that are helpful and most likely you will receive that in return.

    The other thing that is of importance is to show that you are an authority. If you provide quality content people be interested…if you are a pioneer in the industry, of course people will come to you for that information.

    You can have great content, but it must be promoted. Sites like Digg and Delicious, blogs and message boards help out.

    Quality web site traffic is a longer process to achieve than most web owners or bloggers understand.

  • whiteshark0121

    Driving traffic to website is really very important to make your site visible and to do this I suggest you do all the techniques listed in this post because we cannot succeed if we do just 1 or 2 strategies, I have an idea to add to this post because there are millions of people going online each day to play game. I used YourKidsClub games as it has wide variety of games that are related to my niche and can help generate more traffic.

  • pete

    i hopped in here searching “traffic blog” 😉

  • Santosh Bhandarkar

    All these are very common techniques. I was hoping to discover something new. I have blogs that get an average of 7k visits per day – after about 10 months of starting. What have I been doing?
    1. posting regularly – few post per day
    2. visiting other blogs – and leaving useful comments with link back to my blog pages.
    3. Posting in forums with my signatures
    4. Submitting to article directories
    5. Twitter account – tweets each time I post
    6. I have a ask a question module – and answer all queries very religiously

    No substitute for hard work – follow the bes practices and earnestly “earn” the traffic – its a long term game!

  • Ann Krebber

    It is related to the tips from you Daniel (no.6). I think that by buying hosting in the U.S., I do not need to install plugins to translate the contents of my blog. However, according to your tips, in fact many visitors that the original language is not English. After this, I will consider to install a translator plugin.

  • cmdweb

    From experience I have to say I disagree with the point made about the value of I have a great many pages signposted on there and my traffic reports tell me that very few visitors (literally 1 or 2 a month) come from there.

  • Denise

    This just goes to show how writing a great post, like the one above, is the best way to get traffic. This post is three years old and yet the information is timeless and still very useful. This kind of post is what I am talking about!

  • Niharraj

    Tips you shared are very informative and i like very much. I will use your tips to get a good traffic.

    One thing i surprised that everyone advising that forum signatures are the one of the way to get a good traffic. Is that effective ?

    Does forums are better than blogs for getting good traffic ?

    I searched on google, but nobody answered perfectly, could you please give me this information.


  • Andy

    Driving traffic to a blogsite can really put your SEO skills to the test. But here’s what I really love, there are tons of effective marketing tools out there and you will never run out of options. Some of these great tips were discussed here and two of my favorites are article marketing and blogging. Blogging is a great marketing tool. Selecting the right keywords is extremely important for SEO. Some minor tips for bloggers: you have to be interesting and unique so that people will feel their time wasn’t wasted while reading your post. Eventually, you’ll gain loyal subscribers who may become potential buyers to your online business (if you have one) and before you know it, your business is up and running.

  • Mukundan Srinivasan

    All the 30 tips are really perfect. I am going to try these tips for my blog. This post is a great treasure.

  • Digital Magazines

    Great ideas here, I’ll be trying out some in order to increase traffic to my site.

    I’d also recommend using StumbleUpon as a great way to get both spikes and constant traffic. To get the best out of it you need to put in the time and become an active community member but it can be worth the effort.

  • Nat

    Although this post is old, it is still valuable. I have heard of almost all of them, but a couple were new.

    I’m not a blogger, but an information site owner and agree with Santosh above. There is no substitute for hard work.

  • Digital Fruit

    So, I’ve been able to gather a couple of things from reading this entire list. The underlying suggestions point to generating links, and keeping relevant. It seems to me that is the total effect of the article.

    What I appreciate, though, is that there are specifics, like which sites to go to, what kind of sites generate the most buzz, and tips for keeping things fresh.

  • Ronak Muchhala

    Nice and simple. I would love to participate in such blog projects. Thank you for the whole effort. I will use most of the advices for promoting my blog as well. Thanks. Keep it up.

  • Chris Ronson

    Looks like this article was posted in 2007 but I still find it top of the line when it comes to traffic generation. I’ve recently started a blog on traffic generation myself, in order to give our clients more info on it and was looking for new ideas. My next post will probably mention this article as a great one. Thanks, great work.

  • Wendy R

    A very resourceful post! One way I like to bring traffic to my blog is through Social Network sites such as MySpace & CafeMom. I create a profile that has information related to my blog (and personal info on myself, business, etc. ). Then I create my own group and go around and invite people to be my friend. When they accept my friendship, I invite them to be a part of my group which has a link back to my blog (or other websites).

    I also use the journal feature in my profile to make posts to daily with links back to my blog. Works well.

  • jsmith

    This is very useful information. It looks like I might have some work ahead of me, but I’ve also been able to confirm that I’ve been doing some of the suggested things already.

    Thanks again for another great post.

  • wptidbits

    I think one of the fastest way now is by using the single submit to all social bookmarking like onlywire services. It really increase my visitor to 200%.

  • Emelina Minero

    I really liked this post. I’ve been stagnant on a creative writing blog that I created, and I’ve lost focus on increasing traffic to some other blogs and a website.

    I’m really passionate about it; I just got exhausted on my last web project.

    Reading this post helped. It was like a collage of really good tips to get me excited again.

    Thanks. 🙂

  • eTipsLibrary

  • Rison Simon

  • Arpan Kar @ Business Fundas

    about “Leave comments on other blogs.”
    does it generate any traffic? I feel its more due to backlinks that people write comments on blogs

  • Anne

    Many of these tips are timeless. Thanks!!!!

  • Daniel

    Great collection of traffic generation tips there.

    I would add “quality content plus quality high volume keywords, should result in a steady flow of traffic to your site.
