Top 5 Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Blog or Website

Don’t you want more traffic to your blog? Discover the top 5 ways to drive laser targeted traffic to your blog. In this post I cover the best ways to drive traffic to your blog. While other methods do work, I find these to be the most profitable. Driving traffic is an important part of blogging; driving laser targeted traffic is an art-form.

1. Ad Swaps

Ad swaps are a powerful way for bloggers to grow their subscriber lists. An ad swap occurs when two list owners agree to mail out an offer for the other person. When a subscriber clicks on the link in the E-mail they are taken to the opt-in page of the other list owner.

To do an ad swap you will need an initial “seed list” of about 500 subscribers. Once you have a seed list you can contact other list owners in your niche and offer them an ad swap. This is a great way to grow your subscriber list by leaps and bounds, as well as send hundreds of targeted visitors to your website.

2. Guest Blogging

Guest blogging is one of the best ways to drive hordes of laser targeted visitors to your blog. Having your article posted on the front page of a high profile website will give you an initial spike in traffic followed by a constant trickle of return readers.

Growing your blog can be difficult at first. Guest blogging is a quick way to drive hungry readers to your website. Once you have established a good reader base you can allow guest posting on your blog. This will allow you to help other bloggers grow their reader base, as well as provide free content for your site. Guest blogging is a win-win for both parties.

3. Blog Commenting

Blog commenting is often underrated and overlooked. Blog comments can be traffic driving machines if done right. Make sure you are subscribed to the top blogs in your niche. Every time a post is made check it out and see if there are any comments yet. Read the post and make a comment that adds value to the post. Aim to be one of the first 5 commenters on the post, otherwise you will receive less traffic.

Rinse and repeat until you are content. Some blogs will bring you a lot more traffic than others, make note of these blogs and check them more often.

4. Forum Marketing

There are thousands of forums spanning virtually every topic you can think of. Why not join a few and start posting? Forum marketing is great because it puts you right in front of your target audience. You can become a part of the conversations they are having and help out where you can.

Use a strong call to action in your signature. “My blog” is boring and will not receive many clicks. Give the readers a reason to click on your link, make it stand out as much as possible.

5. SEO

Search engine optimization is going to bring you “organic” traffic. Onsite SEO is just as important as link building. Make sure you use keywords in the titles of your posts, and sprinkle your main keyword throughout the article. When you add in your tags make sure you add all of your keywords as well. Another quick trick I use for onsite SEO is to use the keyword in a link. If you are linking to an authority site in your niche use the keyword in your anchor text.

When you are linkbuilding use your keywords in the anchor text of your links. Link to blog posts on your blog and not just to the main page. When linking to specific blog posts make sure you use relevant keywords as well as your main keyword. This way your post will rank for multiple keyword phrases and not just one.
