I’ve come to the realization that people desire their blog traffic even more than their blog reputation, because they believe like the known saying in blogosphere that “traffic is the soul of once blog”. I strongly support this belief because when I also started out as a new blogger back in 2011.
I was so ignorant of all other rudiments in blogging. But traffic issue was actually what I look for almost every day. I believe new bloggers actually look out for the numbers of page views they have each day; like my younger ones. Therefore, there is no doubt that attracting traffic to your blog is one of the very few best things to check in blogging.
However, I make people understand that your blog traffic and some other few things like comments received is what make you know if your blog is making a difference as a blogger.
Today, I will like to share with you the secret of attracting traffic to one’s blog. Actually these are known secrets to most of us, so I don’t think I’ll want to call it secrets again. It’s just that you are too lazy to implement those so called secrets. Do you know the reason while I brought this article is because I implemented these methodologies and in the span of 3 weeks, my traffic changed from hundreds to thousands.
And that’s why I’ve decided to call it “traffic breakthrough”, because it liberated my traffic instinct. Therefore sit tight and let’s dive into the ocean of motion, and let’s discuss about traffic break through. More so, the first principle of attracting traffic to discuss is:
1 BLOG COMMENTING:
Should I just call this the act of laziness or probably time factor has really worked against so many bloggers in this aspect of blogging? To be frank, I believe I’ve read more than 100 piece of articles on attracting traffic to your blog through blog commenting, but yet people still find it difficult for one reason or the other.
Blog commenting has been one of the sources of traffic for most pros in a long time, and it does not bring only traffic, but also builds good relationship among bloggers. I think I was going through tiroberts’s blog this week and she actually mention that if you want to build a success blog, then you need to comment like crazy.
She actually narrated her own experience with a blog community. Do you know you can also get quality backlinks from blogs with high PR? Therefore, you need to take commenting seriously, it might just be the next or right solution you’ve been looking for.
2 SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING:
I bet you, you can’t just take the power of social media away from blogging. A lot of bloggers has taking social media marketing as a source of traffic income for their blogs; I think I’m talking in respect of both Facebook and twitter now.
