“Top 10 Tips For Generating Big Traffic To Your Blog Today”

(C) Copyright Ewen Chia, http://www.EzineArticle.com

Let’s face it, blogs (or weblogs) are getting incredibly
popular amongst people with an internet connection due to
the ease and practicality of setting one up.

Despite this however, there is no value in having a blog
if no one is visiting and reading it!

Therefore, it is important to know exactly how to drive
traffic to your blog if you desire to increase your
readership or monetize it.

To do that, here are 10 quick tips to generating more
traffic to your blogs:

Tip 1: Reciprocal Linking

One of the most proven ways to gain targeted traffic is
to exchange links with other bloggers or site owners.
This is a task which requires a little work – by sending
an email request for a link exchange with a few follow
ups but the results are worth it.

Another linking method is to simply write a testimonial
for a product you have purchased. If your testimonial is
good, product owners will usually publish it on their
sales page with your blog URL included.

If you want to skip the traditional way of exchanging
links and go for the easier way, you can automate the
process with various software and services found on the
net. Just do a search at Google.com and you will have
a list of these.

Tip 2: Blog Commentaries

Do you know that your comments also have high potential
in generating targeted traffic to your blog and is an
effective linking strategy?

All you have to do is find a blog related to your niche
and post your comments. At the end of your comments you
can include a link back to your blog, this way people who
are interested will be able to visit your blog as well.
However you should never misuse this to spam other blogs.

Tip 3: Blog Directories

Blog directories are similar to search engines just that
they cater only to searches for blogs. It is advisable to
submit your blog to the major directories, some of which
include feedster.com, technorati.com and blogstreet.com.

Similarly, there are many blog services like pingomatic.com
which you can use to ping your blog. Pinging your blog
notifies the service that you have updated your blog.
These services will then publish your new posts and you
get traffic from interested readers and search engines.

Tip 4: Writing Articles

This is one of the best ways of pulling targeted, steady
and long-term traffic to your blog. By writing your own
articles and submitting them to article directories, you
can invite a lot of targeted visitors to your blog.

In order to generate traffic by writing articles, you
need to include your resource box at the end of every
article you have written. The resource box is where you
promote and introduce your website or blog.

To truly maximize your results, you need a system to create,
submit and leverage off your articles easily. One of the best
available is seen at http://EzineArticle.com/aa.htm

Tip 5: Writing Press Releases

Press release is a very effective way of generating instant
traffic to your blog. Although press releases only pull in
short-term traffic, they can work very well if you
continuously write and submit press releases regularly
while monetizing the traffic received.

PRWeb.com is one of the oldest and most trusted sources
for news distribution on the web. Or you can use an automated
press release service like http://www.SubmitYourPressRelease.com
to do the work for you quickly.

Tip 6: Start A Blog Mailing List

The phrase “the money is in the list” is true in all businesses.
If you want to succeed online, you must start building your own
list of targeted subscribers. You can send your subscribers to
your blog anytime you have new posts.

By the same token, you can also get your blog readers to
subscribe to a ‘blog update’ list which can be used to notify
them when you have updated your blog. REPEAT traffic through
returning visitors is a key traffic strategy and you can
control that with this method.

Tip 7: Publishing Your Own Ezine

You can also provide your subscribers with useful information
in several series with an autoresponder. An ezine is often
called an online magazine. By publishing your own ezine, you
are able to attract readership to your blog when you advertise
it in your ezine.

Tip 8: Pay For Traffic

If you have a good monetization strategy for your blog through
affiliate programs, Google Adsense and a mailing list, you
should consider using paid advertising to drive traffic to
your blog.

Recommended options include pay-per-click advertising, ezine
advertising and huge banner exposures.

Tip 9: Giving Out Free Reports

Give out free viral reports to promote your blog. Providing
useful information in your free reports can trigger readers’
interest to know more about you and your websites. More
information on this tactic can be found at

Tip 10: Niche Discussion Boards

Discussions boards or forums can deliver targeted traffic to
your blog. If you have a blog about gardening, try searching
for a related niche forum with huge traffic to participate in.

Most forums will usually allow you to include a signature file
where you can write a few sentences of words. You can invite
people to visit your blog through the signature file by posting
more regularly.

In conclusion, realize that getting traffic to your blog
should not be viewed as a one time effort.

Commit and focus on a long-term strategy in order to succeed.
It is all about gaining the momentum. Once you get a decent
amount of traffic to your blog, you will attract more visitors
to it everyday as you work on it. As time goes by, you will
have an amazing amount of traffic to your blog which you never
thought was possible!

Great article. There's never too many of these out there.

Sometimes I found that it's better not to use linking services such as Blogrolling. Spiders can sometimes have trouble with their code so if you're blogging software has a built in link function you should use that even though it's a little bit more work.
