Free Traffic Strategies for Your Blog
Great: Having own website/blog
Creating a WordPress blog is not the success rather getting people on your blog is the real achievement. If your blog doesn’t get sufficient visitors, you won’t make any money. The only way to make your blog work for you is to generate traffic.
Getting traffic is not easy – trust me.
But, let’s make it a bit easy today.
Here are few free traffic generation strategies that will help you generate decent traffic to your blog.
Guest Blogging Post
Guest blogging Post is one of the best ways to generate tremendously targeted traffic. No, we are not talking about low-quality blogs that are part of PBNs rather we are talking about high-quality authority blogs.
Imagine having your guest post published on Buzz feed, Huffington, and Examiner or maybe on ABC News. Though making it to such top websites is not easy and most of the times it is not free because you will have to hire an expert author to craft a superior quality guest post that will be accepted.
Let’s talk free.
Find authority blogs in your niche having domain authorities greater than 10. Get your blog posts published on these authority blogs with a catchy author bio.
The idea is to drive traffic – not getting backlinks. Your guest post should be so well-written, detailed, and information that readers cannot resist visiting your blog. These visitors are extremely targeted as they know what your blog is about so they are expected not to add to bounce rate.
Submitting a guest post every week on an authority blog will send thousands of targeted visitors your way for the lifetime.
Niche Forums for Blog
We have misused forums a lot. But no matter how much we spam forums, you cannot deny their importance for traffic generation. Not only that you can drive targeted traffic to your blog from niche forums but they can help you become an authority in your niche.
You should join forums in your niche (and industry) with an intention to help others. Don’t spam the forum. Follow the rules. Don’t bother putting links to your blog. All you have to do is help people by solving their issues.
If you will consistently provide high-value information to others, they will start recognizing you as an expert and will ultimately connect with you via your blog and social accounts. That’s how you generate traffic as well as establish yourself as an authority.
In order to help others, you must be experienced in the niche. I mean if you have a blog about smartphone screen repair but you never repaired a screen, it will get hard for you to genuinely help others.
So the rule number one is to help genuinely in the field of your expertise.
I can guarantee, this is the best way to generate massive traffic. You just have to be consistent.
Social Media for More Traffic
Traffic from social media is free but it is not easy to drive traffic to your blog from social networks like Facebook or Twitter.
Unfortunately, most of the bloggers assume that traffic from social media is the easiest and instant but when they jump into it, they realize that it is totally different.
People log into their social accounts to socialize. They are not in a buying mode at that time so anything that you throw at them has a high probability of getting rejected.
There are some niches that work extremely well with social traffic such as entertainment, tech, affiliates, music, fun, gaming etc. while niches like weight loss, finance and education tend to perform badly.
All the niches that are related to ‘socializing’ work extremely well while ‘non-socializing’ niches perform poorly. Based on your niche, you can drive a lot of free traffic to your blog (or you can end up wasting your time).
This is just one school of thought.
There is, however, another school of thought that emphasizes on the fact that all niches work equally good on social networks, it is all about how you use the network.
To sum it up, you should interact with your target audience on the social network (like your Facebook page). Once you establish a relationship with your audience, you can then send them to your blog.
These three free traffic creation strategies work every single time provided you take them seriously and do your homework.
That’s it. Thank you for reading this post.
