What Are You Doing to Drive Traffic to Your Blog?

by | Jan 19, 2012

Your blog should be the centerpiece of your marketing efforts, so it stands to reason that you need to promote as much traffic to it as you can. I recently read a post on Problogger from Blogstash that outlined 65 ways to improve your traffic.

So here are some of my favorite ones:

  • Interview an expert or industry leader in your field and then post it on your blog.
  • Guest posts, there are certainly others in your space. Talk to them and see if they would be willing to do a post. Who knows, they may ask you to reciprocate.
  • Find interesting posts others have done and write a post about it and link to their site.
  • Go to YouTube and find relevant videos and make comments on with a link back to your blog.
  • Build a Wiki page for your blog using a non-promoting post.
  • Write list posts like this one. People seem to like them.
  • Publish your posts on Wikipedia.
  • Make sure you post on your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn) a brief description and link to your site.

I have found that Twitter and the groups that I belong to on LinkedIn generate more traffic to my blog than any other source.

 A suggestion would be to take a few of these, implement them and see how they work for you.
