How to increase web traffic

Feb 4, 2012

I own a blog before that was not so doing good in regards to generating traffic. Just got like 50 page views a day and 1-2 clicks on my Ads. I was a little desperate at that time and looked for ways to increase traffic on my site. I even bought some books that will guide me in getting traffic.

What I don't realize is that what I'm looking for is just in front of me. I've created a top five list on how you will be able to increase web traffic gradually and have your permanent readers and audience.

1. Use the social media - Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are good sources of traffic. An average Facebook account has 180-300 Friends. Here in the Philippines, an average Pinoy account has 400-600 friends(Filipinos are friendly right?). Add a 'like button' in your blog. (I will give you a link on how you can do it.) Admit it, we are more encourage to read something if lots of people 'Liked' what your article is about. But please, promoting your blog thru Facebook and Twitter doesn't need to be every hour. A good 2-3 times a day will do during the peak hours so you will attract more audience.

2. Forums and Chat - I call this method 'Free Taste'. That's what exactly those merchants selling food in a province bound buses does. They give some free samples and free tastes of their products to the passengers, and in return, most passengers will buy from them. You can also do this in forums and chat sites. I usually join discussions in a certain forum(topic related to my site), and put my thought about it. And I put  link/s on the comment that I did if they want to learn or find out more about the topic.

3. Backlinks - Maybe the term is not quite familiar to you. Like this one(NBA MVP) - and this will lead you to another site.(in this case I used my own page)

a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node
 So it means that you need to find a top level site or blog that has a good web traffic and link to their site. Just simply ask the creator or the owner if they can, but most of the time, they will just reject you.

You will find a lot of websites that accepts free backlinking. One is SocialMonkee.com - just sign up with them and you will be referred automatically to 25 different bookmark sites. The best thing of all, it's free. You can do this once a day, and that 750 backlinks for free in a month. If you are lazy like me, this is the best way to backlink than to do the manual one. 

4. Be a guest author/Invite a guest Author - This is a good tool to advertise your blog and for you to be known. Find more here. Myblogguest.com.

5. Unique and useful content - This is one of the most important things. This would be the building block, the pillar and the DNA of your website/blog. I don't need to explain much about this. Just be yourself, write something that you're good at. Create a unique article that many people maybe interested to.


And by the way, before I forgot - here's a link on the step by step guide to add a Facebook Like Button in your blog. Good Luck to all of us.

Here's the Link.
