18 Proven Ways to Get Traffic to Your Blog Posst

18 Proven Ways to Get Traffic to Your Blog Post 1. LinkedIn Groups Join the ten most active Linkedin groups in your industry and share your blog post. Don't sound promotional or it will be removed. Respond to comments to get the most activity. 2. Google+ Communities Promote your blog post in Google+ communities. Ask a question about the article to spark discussion. Make sure to use hash tags too! 8+ 3. Facebook Groups Search for relevant Facebook groups and post your link. Some Facebook groups have strict policies (like not promoting your own content) but if you create a fake account you can bypass them. 4. Blog Comments Post the first comment on well-trafficked sites. Say something useful and then link to your post at the end. Pete Cashmore built Mashable with this strategy. 5. Guest Post Write a guest post for a big name website in your industry. Link to your blog post either in the article itself or in the about section. This will send several hundred people to your blog post if you are lucky. 6. Q&A Sites Look for recent questions on Yahoo Answers, Quora, and Answers.com. Write a detailed response and tell them to look at your post for more information. Q&A sites rank well in Google and will send you 1000s of views over time. 7. Change Your Title On average 8 out of 10 people will read your title but only 3 out of 10 will bother to click on the link to read the whole post. Increase the odds by crafting an enticing headline. HEADLINE 8. Create a YouTube Video Create a video tutorial on the topic of your blog post and upload it to YouTube. At the top of the video's description put a link to the article. Mention the post many You Tube times throughout the video. 9. Tweet @ Influencers Send @ messages to semi-popular influencers asking them to share or give feedback on the article. Don't go for the hundred pound guerillas right away because they don't respond as much. MESSAGES 10. Buy Social Media Shares Signup for MyLikes.com and pay Tweeters with large audiences to share your blog post. You only pay when a person lands on your post. Find well rated Fiverr gigs to get even more results. 11. Lock Your Post If you have really awesome content, you can force people to share it before unlocking it with CloudFlood.com or PayWithaTweet.com. 12. Promote It on Facebook Share the article on your Facebook page and then click promote. Ads are still cheap on Facebook and all it might take is $15 bucks before it goes viral. 13. Create an Infographic Hire someone on oDesk to turn your blog post into an infographic. Share the infographic on prominent infographic sites as well as on Pinterest and Twitter. Create an embed code which links to the article itself. When people click on the infographic, it will bring them to your article. 14. Make a Slideshow Turn your blog post into a quick powerpoint and put it on SlideShare.net. Add it to the right categories and your slideshow may begin getting tons of traffic. Make sure to link back to the article. 15. Advertise with Nrelate Advertise your blog post in the'related posts' section of another site using Nrelate. You can target your post to only show up with highly relevant articles. nrelate 16. Use SocialMention.com Find people asking questions about your blog post's topic on SocialMention.com. Help them find the answer by sharing your post. Better yet, hire someone to do it for you. socialmention 17. Buy StumbleUpon Traffic StumbleUpon Paid Discovery only costs 5 cents per view. If you drop a hundred dollars on a really important blog post, you can get 2000 views, which may convert into social shares. 18. Create Outrage/Be Contrarian Rewrite your blog post to cause controversy. The best way is to usually take the opposite viewpoint than the majority.
