You need more traffic. It doesn’t matter who you are. There are many ways to get more eyeballs on your websites, including your blog. And because you want people to visit your blog, what better source of visitors could you have than people who are already reading and responding on other people’s blogs, You can get blog traffic from guest blogging, from blog commenting, and from joint ventures and affiliates.
Guest blogging is pretty simple and effective on the right blogs, but very few people do it. What you do is write a blog post. But instead of posting it on your own site, contact someone you know, and see if they accept guest content. In this post, you’re going to be showing some of your best material, some of your best tips, but it’s going on someone else’s website. The good news is that your name is still attached to the blog post, even though it’s someone else’s website, and you usually have a link back to your blog. That way, if someone who was reading this post likes what they see, likes what you have to offer, then they will click on the link back to your blog and read more about you.
I have some blogs that give me consistent traffic even years later and consistent sales every week from something I wrote years and years ago. The only problem with this method is that you need to build your relationships, you need to know the person whose blog you’re writing for. But the worst case scenario is that they say no, and you go and find someone else who will host this guest blog content.
Another strategy that is somewhat effective but easier to do is blog commenting. When you leave a comment on someone else’s blog, you usually have the ability to type in a URL or a web address of your website. That means that on this website, there will be a blog pos, and underneath it, your blog comment, but your name is hyperlinked. And that means if someone decides they like your blog comment, if it contributed to the discussion and was not spammy, then they might click on that link and go back to your site. Many people mess this up and leave out the link, or have a link to a normal website. But if you’re leaving a comment on a blog, what better place to send people than back to your blog. What’s an even better idea is if you have a post on your blog about a similar topic, then link directly to that blog post instead of the front page of your blog.
And finally, there’s nothing wrong with simply contacting people. If someone is promoting you as an affiliate and they’re making even a handful of sales and you see they have a blog, why not ask them to place their existing affiliate link right on their blog. And even if they are not promoting you yet, it can’t hurt to contact different blog owners and ask if they will place your link or banner ad in exchange for something. Maybe it is in exchange for a blog post, or a monthly fee, or maybe they just need to sign up as an affiliate, and promote your blog or your products and get a commission for the sales they bring in.
And that’s how you can get blog traffic: through guest blogging, blog commenting, joint ventures, and affiliates.
