Having a website/blog with an attractive design and quality content is an amazing start in the blogosphere.But generating website traffic is an important issue for making the site popular and useful to web.When I started my career as a blogger,I was very particular about getting a good response on my posts.
There are many ways to bring free niche and quality traffic on site.Generally we divide them into two category –Free and Paid traffic generation ways.Here I am highlighting few of the free ways as well as paid ways.
Facebook Fan Page
Many users don`t know the advantage of having a facebook account.I am sure most of the you already using facebook, but how many know that you can generate a good website traffic with it? You can create fan page for your website to widen your audience.When a user likes your page, he will receive all the updates of your page.This is really an effective way to strengthen your roots in blogosphere.
Twitter and Google +
Twitter and Google+ are another social networking site.Companies are now focusing on these growing networks and creating the pages for their sites and products.Twitter is an effective way to improve readership,build followers and display RSS and updates directly to users while on twitter.Google+ is more essential now because its directly linked with Google and Google is responsible for traffic.The plus one button can make your site a traffic king in one day.So keep in touch with them too.
How many times when you searched Google and ended up with a site like “ezinearticles.com”? Ezinearticles.com has become an extremely large and popular website where you can add quality articles and add a backlink at the bottom of your article.Since many users are running for backlinks (like me) writing features articles on well ranked site can bring lot of free quality traffic.But don`t be a fuss for creating backlinks only.
Commenting on Blogs
My all post for website traffic always include this topic.Commenting is really a best way to bring some targeted user to your blog.Using the keywords as the name will surely generate a good response.Sites which offers “Top Commentator ” service is the best platform to start commenting.Create an eye-catching gravatar for your profile and appealing comment.
Guest posting is a new trend in terms of backlinks.Various blogs are featuring it for better SEO and adding different taste to single blog.Find blogs related to your niche and ask for guest posting.While requesting for a guest post,send an expert of your post along with the e-mail so that blog owner can see your work, and if interested , they can reserve you for future post.If blog owner relies in negative then find another blog.Don`t worry there are thousands to go.Use your contacts and social networks to find a blog owner offering guest posts.
Build a Powerful Mailing List
Nowadays, Mailing list is the best way to grab some good traffic.Building a mailing list is becoming a major source of earning from a website.For only 1$ you can setup a trial account at Aweber and start making a mailing list for your blog.Many blogs have recommended Aweber for website traffic and managing email list.(You can try even the Free Feedburner which i am using in the initial stage of your career)
Question is how you can earn by mailing list?There is not a any direct way to earn but by building a mailing list, you can rather increase your daily readers and subscriptions,providing weekly updates to your readers and sending the newsletters and announcements to readers.
Advertising on Social Networks:
If you are searching for your readers and persons who are having same interest as yours,advertising is the best way.You can start your paid campaigns to advertise on facebook.Facebook advertising is most effective because it includes all type of users.Twitter can be a another best option where you can create a SponsoredTweets.Google AdWords can be another best source for it.
I suggest you to try the free ways and don`t go for the paid ones initially.Its not because it require investment,but because paid ways are not suitable for newbie and you first acquire some good knowledge about this.Traffic is generated automatically until you don`t have any error in your site and you write quality articles.The above ways just help you get that more easily and fast.
