The new rumor going on around the blog sphere for quite a while now is; SEO is becoming extinct but tell me how true is this rumor? If you’ll ask me, I’ll tell you this; SEO is not as effective as it use to. If you study the online world very well, those who always get affected and knocked down by Google updates are those that do SEO and have lesser or junk contents, but at times some good guys still get trapped in these updates.

  1. Hi Babanature,

    I couldn’t agree more with what you wrote here 🙂

    These things DO work and I’ve seen it working with a few bloggers, and you too. I guess that’s the reason in the awesome rank here!

    I agree, one shouldn’t put all our eggs in one basket and we do need to diversify for driving traffic through other alternatives. Google keeps updating so often that it’s sometimes tough to make out which update hit you when. And as you mentioned, even those who don’t use SEO and other tricks also get affected. I wish it wasn’t so.

    You mentioned some awesome ways to drive traffic through these online communities, some of which, honestly speaking – I’m not using! I guess I need to take out the time and visit each of them to do the needful, more so as you say they are so good. So, here is another post to bookmark for the day 🙂

    But let me ask you a question instead, if you don’t mind. Do you promote every post, each time, on all of these platforms? I understand the basic ones like G+, Facebook, Triberr, Twitter, Stumbleupon etc. but the others you mentioned under forums, audio-video, and presentation? If you do, then hats-off to you! Some of them I’d not even heard of earlier than today 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this with us, and you’ve surely given me lots to think about and do. Congratulations on your new FB group too, and I think you’ve already got 12 wonderful members in there 🙂

    1. Hello Harleena,
      A mentor once told me that doing things the right way will someday give you the attention you need… The true way you can really drive traffic to your blog is if you do it with a sincere heart because back doors will only get you caught.
      Yes Harleena, I do publish every single of my post on this communities i mentioned. As you can see, i publish my post 2 times a week on my blog and that give me a lot of time to promote my blog to all the social networks i mentioned. I don’t do video that much but anytime i have a new video, i make sure i distribute them to my video sharing communities. You should take a try on the list and see if your traffic flow wont increased 😉
      I miss typed the members i need 😀 i wanted to write 15 members. Well if you’ll like to join the group, i’ll gladly welcome you because we need active members like you 🙂
      Thanks for your lovely comments as always and do have a great week and blessed weekend ahead

      1. I guess I need to start working on my time management skill and take out time to be really ‘all-over’ just as you mentioned 🙂

        Ah…I love the invitation to join the group, though I am not into the tech niche, nor anything related to SEO, blogging etc. So, hope that’s alright with you guys, or else, I can leave way for more of people who are more into your kind of niche, though always share your posts – it’s a pleasure to do so.

        Thanks once again 🙂

        1. hmmm… This group doesn’t deal with niche, we are just coming as group bloggers promoting each other. Let’s say we are building a tight group that will benefit all niche blog 😉 . I know you’ll be active in the group so why not join and make a community together 😀

  2. Fabulous post Baba,
    Website traffic is the main thing that every webmaster is chasing and craving for. A website that does not receive visitors is as good as a waist of time because no matter how beautiful and the amount of efforts the owner puts into it, it will not worth it.

    When you get a big number of quality backlinks, Google will see your site as an authority on its niche and then rank you higher than your competitors. But that’s when you build white heart backlinks, but if you do it the wrong way, you will be hurting your site

    There are many ways to get those traffic easily if you know the routes. I’m pretty sure this post will help a lot of people because its actually the traffic and backlinking generation methods that’s proven to work.

    Nice post man, thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey Theodore,
      Thanks for the complements. I wonder why would somebody wants to use black hat method on their blog! well except you don’t intend to use that blog for a long time.
      This methods are ways i am getting my tons of traffic everyday and i’ll advice any blogger to at least join some of this few communities for either backlinks or traffic or for both. Thanks for the comment theodore and have a great day ahead bro

  3. Hi Babanature,
    I like the effort you placed in compiling those lists but there is one we ought to bare in mind, joining all these communities is useless when one isn’t prepared to be ACTIVE.

    1. Hello Emmanuel,
      Traffic flow deals with constant promotion, If you are not ready to be active in your blogs promotion, then you’re not ready to be a blogger. A blogger should be ready to apply strategies to help grow his brand… Except you’re not a blogger or you’re not trying to convert as many visitors as possible; you should do what makes your blog happy and fruitful… Thanks for the comment bro

  4. Hi Babanature,
    these are awesome ways of getting good traffic and backlinks. I use soe of these methods, but I can use all becauase of time…
    Am very busy with lot of things. Thanks for this great post…

    1. Hello Joseph,
      Well maybe because i can go to all this sites is because i am a full time blogger. I have three blogs to maintain and so it is compulsory to get traffic to my blog. Thanks for your comment and do have a brilliant day

  5. Hi Babanature,

    Well didn’t you just give us an awesome jam packed post full of goodies. I wrote a post a couple years ago and had 30 ways to drive traffic to your blog and a lot of what you shared is in that post although I didn’t list all of the sites you have here. Some weren’t around at that time.

    You’re right though, I was also taught to get myself out there and keep doing it because it’s going to take some time to get noticed. We both know that’s true so the ones that are impatient will always wonder why they aren’t getting traffic. The ones that are consistent and here for the right reasons will.

    I by no means do everything you have on this list but I do a good bit. Commenting and social sharing of course are my favorites and they do keep me pretty busy.

    Thank you for this awesome post my friend. Great share!


    1. Hello Adrienne,
      A friend met me like 3days ago and told me he wants to get traffic to his blog, i showed him the list i always share my blog posts to and he suddenly gave up 🙁 . There are bloggers that’s just so lazy to make their blog grow or maybe they are searching for a shortcut 🙂
      I know you’re getting great results with the step you’re applying because you’ve been in the blogging world for a long time.
      I must admit Adrienne, you’re a huge inspiration. Do have a blessed weekend ahead my friend 😀 …

  6. Thanks for this share. Really need this information in my online endeavours. Hope to succeed one day.

    Was nice to visit you, see you next time. man

    Best regards from I. C. Daniel – Romania

  7. This is more than helpful. Without traffic, a blog is DEAD. I appreciate you taking take to put this together.
    Thank you babanature. 🙂

    1. Hello Seun,
      We all need targeted traffic to make our business grow and we really do need to expand our reach. that’s why we need traffic. I’m glad you like the post. thanks for your comment bro

  8. Hi Baba,

    It’s truly a great collection of resource, very useful!

    Google is always ready with its zoo and don’t know what storm it’s inviting in next update. However, if you are good to your content and good to your readers, lets hope everything is going to be fine.

    Though I could not use all of the networks you’ve mentioned here, I’m glad that at least the ones I’m using are right ones.

    1. Hello Suresh,
      Google gives us 80% of our traffic but if we can cut it down to 45 and make the rest be referral traffic, it’ll all sound great and you won’t get trapped in the updates. good, quality content and a fast blog is also a criteria we need to follow. Thanks for your good comment as always. have a nice weekend 🙂

  9. Have you heard about the new term “Google Zebra”. Yes it’s a new algorithm going to launch on May 2013. Be ready. It’s time to produce more high quality article.

    By the way, great post!

    Good luck!

    1. Hello Sarvesh,
      Just quality content and optimization will never get you the traffic you need. you need credibility, high social presents for your blog to rank well and what better ways to get it then socializing.

    7. Hi Baba,

      I followed you here from Adrienne’s Thankful Thursday article, and am I glad I found this article 🙂

      Wow, hats off to you, you really have the patience a blogger needs, to share in all these communities and forums takes a toll, and I should say that I do not have it in me. I share in the more easy ones 🙂

      I did not know most of those you have mentioned here, and especially the ones for eBooks and presentations. I will surely check them out now.

      Thanks once again.

      1. Hello Praveen,
        Good to know that you found my blog through Adrienne’s Thankful Thursday, aint that great? As a blogger patience should always be in our mind. I earn with ads revenue and the only way you can get your earnings as high, is if you get traffic. Getting traffic is like a hobby. I think you should try the list and see how it goes. i am sure it’ll help

    8. Hi Baba,
      Adrienne recently shared your blog post with us. Great information on driving traffic.
      Video is going to be huge very soon and you are correct to say it’s now time to start sharing content via this way.
      Have you tried Only Wire for automating your shares and also Social Monkey? Just curious what your thoughts are on using these services.
      Thanks for the great info!

      1. Hello Tonya,
        Welcome to my blog and i hope you enjoyed the read.
        T o be truth with you, i have never used automated tool to share my posts. I love doing things manually because of the benefits behind it. At times automated tools do get sites penalized (My humble opinion).
        Thanks for stopping by and do have a great weekend 🙂

    9. Hi Babanature,

      Finally, I made it here and read your post. Been busy. *phew* Now I am a week ahead…but still need to keep writing.

      BTW, the link of facebook Bloggers World Sharing Group is NOT working.

      BUT…I do have some of the ones you mentioned above. Business fan page, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube…on YT I’m just starting so this one will take for awhile.

      I have been posting on blogs…at least I try to shoot read 5 blogs/day. But it’s very hard when I’m really busy writing.

      I know warriorforum but I’ve never posted there. That place is only for reading but I should try posting there like you said. Might be a good idea.

      Thanks for sharing this. Have a nice Wednesday!


      1. Hello Angela,
        Good to see you here once again and hope you’re having fun with your blog?
        I have discontinue the group on Facebook and moved it to Google plus, if you are on Google plus and would love to join the group, i’ll definitely give you the ticket to 🙂
        Do you publish your post everyday? you should at list change your blog hopping list to 10 per day so you’ll see a rapid growth in your traffic.

        The lists above can help any blog in any niche gain more web traffic and back links. Thanks for the stopping by and do have a blessed week ahead… 🙂

    10. Angela,

      I have not used all of the places you suggest in your post. I have used some in each category. I am going to go through this post again and try each of the places you suggest.

      I like your way of getting backlinks. It is natural and Google can not take it away. No matter what updates Google decides to put out the natural traffic and backlinks will still be relevent.

      Great information. I know all of this but having so much information and resources in one place is great.

      Thank you so much for all of your information.

      All the same, the list are very useful and well presented
      Nice work

    13. That is why I can’t stop coming to this blog. I actually visit more than I could think of, but most time I’m restricted to comment cos I read with my smartphone. Babanature is a good man and he always give solutions to blogging challenge and that’s why I liked him. My mum used to tell me that advertisement is the soul of business and when u promote your post in communities especially those he mentioned, they are all sure ways to get traffic as times go on. Without traffic, a blog is as gud as dead. That’s why most bloggers quit blogging. Thanks for that explosive list of web traffic generation.

    14. Hi babanature,

      Very Classy! This post is really insightful and I’m struck with amazement that you actually post on all these networking sites. You really are a hard worker and I would like to call that being smart.
