6 Proven methods in driving traffic to your site

Each point of the following is a topic by itself. I tried to make it short as usual. However, don’t hesitate asking if any is not clear. I personally tested them and I’m writing about these points or factors from my own personal experience.

1- Enhance your ranking on search engines

  • Your sitemap should be always up to date and being submitted to search engines periodically. WordPress.com takes care of this for you.
  • Try to have good SEO structure on your site.
  • Make sure that your site is fast loading – check it yourself on GTmetrix. I might write later how my site scores 100% on homepage and above 95% on most other pages/sections.
  • Try to buy or exchange do-Follow Links with others. A lot of scammers are hunting in this market; so take your time before stepping further here…
  • Increase your domain authority wisely without becoming obsessed about this point. That’s, don’t waste much time and money on it.
  • Try to make visitors spend more time on your site. For example, refer to previous posts or other pages from your site often.

2- Engage with others

Likes, replies, comments, … Other bloggers usually pay the favor back and do the same to you. Just be careful of committing spam here. Please refer to WordPress – Ethical Dilemma.

3- Guest posts

Write blog posts on others’ blogs and offer others to do same on your blog. For me, I’m offering this too; you may visit “Be My Guest” for details.

4- Social Media

  • Join Facebook Groups that relate to “promote website/blog”.
  • Follow Twitter accounts that offer retweets service.
  • Join Pinterest and Reddit groups (reddit might be strict in sharing links).
  • Search for posts titled “Promote Your Blog or Your Latest Post” on WordPress.com.

5- Advertise your blog

If it’s affordable, advertise on social media such as Facebook, Twitter (read this first), .. and advertise on search engines (Google, Microsoft, …). Personally, I prefer advertising with bloggers themselves – you can read this very clear in my Cash Giveaway post.

Advertise with other bloggers

I got very good results from advertising this way. Please refer to my post Do you display ads on your blog?

6- Submit your site to MK Blog Directory

Finally, submit your website/blog to MK Blog Directory. It’s one of the easiest way to have your blog discovered by other bloggers (for free).
