Tips On Getting Free Traffic

It is easy to set up a blog but most difficult part is to get free traffic to your blog. After coming to blogging world I learned so many thing and that’s why I am going to post here about the all possible and effective ways to getting free traffic. Traffic is not like something that it will instantly rise after we set up your blog. We have work on it to gain traffic. Of course it depends on you how much you can put effort to gain traffic. But if you follow the following steps surely these will increase traffic to blog.

Article Marketing

1. Article Marketing: Article marketing is one of the most effective ways to get free traffic. Try to submit articles to different article directories. It will not only bring traffic to your blog but also create dofollow backlinks to your blog. Dofollow backlinks has a great impact on search engine ranking. Instead of Article Directories you can submit your article to Free Traffic System. Free Traffic System will post your article to different blogs available in their network.

2. Social Bookmarking: If you are a blogger you should not avoid this step. There are so many social bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Mix, Propeller, Delicious etc where you can bookmark your blog post. The golden rule is to bookmark others post as well as yours. A good ratio is 70%:30% where 30% is for your bookmarks. Don’t get banned by all those sites by promoting only your content. For better result use OnlyWire or SocialPoster to bookmark more than one sites with only one mouse click. You can also use SocialMarker free service to bookmark to 215 sites. Believe me it is  a very powerful method to get traffic to blog. Use it wisely.

3. Social Networking: Blogging is all about community. Join social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, BlogCatalog, MyBlogLog etc and make friendship with other blogger.

    This is a great article! I’m a huge fan of the social networking and blog commenting and I really don’t have time for anything else.

    I find once you pick what you’re going to use for traffic generation it’s a good idea to stay niche and work at improving that specific process.

    By using other marketing medians I’m afraid the currently mains teem ones I use will suffer from low quality.

    Have you been using bloggingzoom? I got a message from the owner Vic a mass e-mail saying things changed and when I went there the upcoming page was full of spam and the main page was articles from over 400 days old.

    Also I wanted to say thanks for adding blogengage to the list. Were forgotten most of the time due to the small size of our community.

    • EarnMoneyOnlineHubber says:

      Thanks bbrian017 for your feedback. I too a fan of social networking and it is the best way to get traffic.

      I submitted two of my blog post to Bloggingzoom. Strange that upcoming page is full of spamm. I saw one post where only keywords were there.

      Anyway I am happy with Blogengage. Great community for blogger!

    Hi there,
    you have a great list in here. Although each tip will be beneficial in a certain way, I believe it’s best to focus more on the tips that you think might be more beneficial for you compared to the other tips. All these tips has a certain way that you should do it to maximize traffic coming in. It will take some time for begginers to master all of them. We have to learn fast though because the internet is evolving and it’s not gonna wait for us to catch up.I’m am learning as i go as well.


  18. Scott Price says:

    All great advice! Guest posting is something that I have yet to try but someday I’ll venture into it.

  19. Murlu says:

    Videos are on a huge rise and really easy to create because cameras and editing software is so cheap now.

    You could even just use your built in web cam and free online editing software to create some great videos.

    Include your link, target the right keywords and you’re gold.

  20. Thanks Chandan.. this site is very impressive for SEO work. I am focusing a lot on article marketing, blog commenting, and forums. It’s hard to find good relevant blogs in my industry that aren’t competitor’s sites. =(

  21. hi i was just starting a new blog and was purely unknown about how to get more traffic to my blog this article is a great one and i hope this one can really help me well

  22. Trey says:

    Thanks so much for this great information. I am just starting to blog and learning about free traffic is really going to help.

  23. Ryan Howard says:

    I’d been meaning to get the whole social bookmarking thing clarified. I keep hearing about it on forums all over as a great source of traffic but never really grasped the concept. I’m now guessing that you will need to have interesting blog posts so they go viral?

  24. These are all great ways to get more traffic for your blog. However, I only give more time on article marketing and social bookmarking. In my experience, I received more backlinks from doing these two methods.

  25. Nicolas says:

    Article posting is a good way to bring tons of traffic to your sites

  26. Deek says:

    I have been reading a lot about how social bookmarking helps your search engine rankings when done without spamming so it is certainly worth a try especially if yoiu have quality content to offer the readers.

  27. I’ve tried using social bookmarking (esp Digg and Delicious) but so far have seen it yield pretty much zero traffic to my sites. I’ve added mostly bookmarks to my own sites, tried to join networks with other users (and have so managed to avoid being banned). But I’m still yet to receive any significant traffic.
    Maybe I’m missing something?

    • EarnMoneyOnlineHubber says:

      Actually to get traffic from Social Networking sites your topic should be very interesting. I do social bookmarking only for backlinks. More over traffic from all those sites are not very effective. But yes if you are trying to make money though adsense. Even CPA does well.

  28. James says:

    This is some good points chandan. I have been trying to establish a more sturdy network within my area of blogging.

  29. Dale says:

  34. Free Traffic is cool, but you need to use it the right way.Always try to build a list first with your free traffic and give away free stuff.great stuff. thanks

  37. Robert says:

    Excellent article awesome tips for blogs sites my problem is i want to find high pr backlinks for my newly created website. Will the same tactics work for websites like they do for the blogs?

    • Thanks for your comment Robert. It’s difficult to find those link but you can use SEO Spy Glass(www.link-assistant.com) software to collect High PR links easily. You can download SEO Spy Glass for free but Free version has some limitation.

      You can use same tactics for Static website and also for blogs. It will work for both. Good Luck :-)

    forum posting and article marketing still valid ?

    • @Lobby Guy, Thank you for your question. Forum posting and article marketing seems to working low after the recent Google Panda update. Anyway I am not a fan of Article Marketing. I only use spun content to build links to my Web2.0 or other pages that have links to my money site.

      • Lobby Guy says:

        I have so many blogs where i dont need to do much of seo work and i still have high rankings in google. so whats the point of doing seo? when we already have good amount of search engine rankings without doing anything ?

        • I am sure you are targeting low competitive keyword then. For competitive keywords it’s impossible to rank without doing doing anything.

          • Lobby Guy says:

            can you rank in first page of google with the keyword iPhone for example ? without any seo? well some people are ranking first in both images and web results with such keywords and i dont know why but yes they are. probably some kind of a big change in google terms etc

            • I am agree with you. Definitely there agree big changes going on. Moreover now a days Google first page is changing often. But still I don’t think there is no scope for SEO. SEO was important and it will be in future. Only ranking parameter will be changing. Of course few sites rank very good initially. But gradually they loose their ranking. Well, to be honest I haven’t seen any site on #1 without any SEO. I will appreciate if you can show me any example site.
