The truth is we all need traffic to keep our blog moving. Traffic gives us the mural to continue writing, knowing people are reading your blog post but without traffic, you won’t have the courage to move on which will leave your blog hopeless. Let’s just put it this way; No traffic → No reader → No product to sell. If you do not have traffic coming to your blog, you will not get people viewing and reading your blog post and if you do not have readers reading that lovely post of yours, you will never sell your product which will leave you and your pocket frustrated and helpless. When you get that good amount of traffic then you, your blog and your pocket will be smiling, I’m I right or I’m I right?
In the blogging world all bloggers are greedy, yes! The reason I said that is because no matter how much traffic they get, they still need more.
There is no popular blog/ site that doesn’t need traffic so since we are fighting for traffic, we are going to be unleashing a top secrete (well not that secrete) 3 strong ways of driving traffic to our blog.

Let me tell you a bit about my journey so far; When I started blogging, I do not know a thing about traffic or what traffic was but I just know that my contents were great, after some months I realize I am not getting that feed as i needed. Why? because i was not promoting or should i say making effort. Letter on, i made a lot of researches on “how to get traffic to ones blog for free” and after my research, I gathered all the information i could find and put them to practice and guess what? The info I gathered did helped me a lot.
How did I increase my ranking? First I submitted my blog to as many social bookmarking sites as possible and I also submitted my blog links to as many social networking sites I could lay my hands on. They did help my blog a lot as per back links and credibility on search engines and also give me that traffic I needed.
The below sites also helped me greatly in driving traffic to my blog
These above sites did help me a lot in driving traffic to my blog, especially if your killer article gets to their front page. With these sites, you’ll get tremendous amount of traffic (believe you me) and also do not forget to drop your site’s url to the 250 bookmarking sites for backlinks and faster indexing of your blog by search engine.
- COMMENTING ON BLOGS, INTERACT ON FORUMS, GUEST POSTING AND QUESTION & ANSWERS

BLOG COMMENTING: Try to comment on as many blog as possible and when commenting, try to leave a thoughtful comment that will make others on that blog wants to visit your blog. There are some blogs that have this plugin called commentluv, commentluv plugins Rewards readers by automatically placing a link to their last blog post at the end of their comment. Tell me how awesome is that! With blogs that have commentluv you can get traffic from there and do you know that commenting can also serve as a great backlink. Now you have killed the birds with a stone.
FORUM COMMENTING: Forum is one good way of getting traffic but how can one get a reasonable traffic from forum? Simple! By contributing positively and adding impact to the community. To get traffic to your blog through forum, you will need to fill your profile well and make sure that your signature will be your site’s url.
Anytime you make a comment or start your own thread your signature will always appear and if your contribution is helpful, you will convert as many people to be your loyal reader. Now you have killed the birds with a stone again because you will get traffic as well as backlink
GUEST POSTING: Right now, every blogger are into guest posting because guest posting is one of the rich ways of getting traffic to your blog. Have you don guest post before? If you have not, you better start thinking of making as many now.
It is wise to submit your guest post to a blog that has a similar niche or in the same niche and to get as many traffic as possible, make the article unique and killer for people to visit you.

The question and answer site i am getting much traffic from are:
TIPS: Try to leave a very helpful answer to the question you’re answering and if the question is related to any of your post, you can make that post as a source and believe you me that you won believe the kind of traffic you’ll pull to your blog. when doing this do not in any way spam or you will be penalize.
- ALWAYS BE PERSISTENT AND ALWAYS PROMOTING YOUR BLOG
After using the two above tips it will still not work for you, do you know why? Because you are not persistent, to be honest and truthful, a lazy man can never make it in the blogging world (is that a slap to your face?).The online world needs you to always be available, answer to response, check for updates and be current as per your line of expertise. Can you do all this? Then you’re ready to go.
My little tip: You should create a facebook page, get more followers and get more friends on Google plus. Always post your link but do not be a spammer or you might lose some interested “candidates”, always post your new content to the above mentioned sites and see how your traffic will change for a better. Persistency and hard work are the keywords to any growth.
