Need traffic? – Here are a few ways to get traffic without using social sharing or SEO techniques
This technique requires you to find blogs that are popular in your niche and entice their traffic o rather visit your blog. Here is how you can go about doing this:
1.1. First, you need to sign up for Google Alerts. Google Alerts is a free service from Google where you can set up your interests and receive alerts pertaining to that interest.
1.2. Once you have received an alert you can visit that link – read the content and write a relevant and helpful comment – do not link your name back to your blog rather link one of your posts that are related to the topic. You are already deemed as an authority on the subject and therefore they are likely to click on the link where you will be sending them to relevant and useful content.
2. Conduct some interviews
Think of interviews as visual guest posts. When you interview you are not only connecting with them but they are highly likely to link and share the interview with others. Interviewing and being interviewed both have advantages
2.1. Why you should be interviewed? You are likely to get more traffic as being interviewed creates authority and credibility from you niche. People that are interviewed are considered important enough to listen to.
2.2. Why should you interview? When interviewing someone and then posting it to your blog, you are likely going to get the interviewed person to share it, get others to comment on it and link back to reference it. You will be considered important if you interview important people. You naturally become associated by authority.
3. Use your email signature
Remember all the emails that you send on a daily basis. Take advantage of it and place a link to your blog or social profiles in your signature. People are more likely to remember you sent them an email, go to that email and link to your site from there – they do not like to type in URL’s. This way you make it easy for them to find you.
