One of the easiest ways for you to add content to your website is by running a blog. There are plenty of blogging systems, the most popular being WordPress that can be added to your website in a matter of minutes.
The fact of the matter is, a blog can be one of the best ways for you to pull traffic into your website consistently.Â Here are three different ways that you can use blogs to receive that traffic.Â You should make sure that you are doing these on a regular basis and you would be surprised with how quickly your traffic will grow.
Search Engine Optimization – A blog is one of the easiest ways for you to begin using search engine optimization to pull in free traffic.Â After the initial keyword research is done, you can begin writing short articles and adding them to your blog automatically.
You can even stack up these articles within the blogging platform and have them added on a daily basis without actually having to go in and add them.Â Because people tend to give credence to blogs and the linking is something that is done automatically through the pinging process, you may be able to rank well for your keywords in a short period of time.
Leaving Comments – Traffic from blogs does not necessarily need to only come from your blog.Â If you are subscribed to somebody else’s blog that receives a lot of traffic, you may be able to get direct links from them by adding comments to their new posts.Â It doesn’t even matter if they have the no follow attribute enabled on outbound links, you can still get direct traffic from clicks.
The real secret is to know whenever they add content quickly so that you can be one of the first to leave a comment.Â The higher on the list your comment is, the more clicks you are going to get.
Guest Blogging – Here is another way for you to get traffic from somebody else’s blog.Â Find blogs that are related to your niche and offer to write some unique content for their blog in exchange for a link back to your website.
Most people will be more than happy to allow you to do so, especially if you have a reputation for knowing the niche.Â Try offering to be a guest blogger at least once per day, you would be surprised with how quickly this can grow your traffic.
