Before we go ahead, I want you to know that this post is not another top 10 ways to get traffic to a blog that you read every day. But still, this post is about getting a huge amount of traffic by making connection with other bloggers or website owners in a unique way.
How often do you hear bloggers preach about “making connection” with other bloggers? The thing is, many of us are seriously missing out on what matters and focusing our energy to what’s not.

Yes, blogging is beautiful and blogging is sweat, but only when you have the right amount of traffic flowing in, I’m I right?
But how do you get the needed traffic to your blog? By doing a simple SEO, sharing your blog to your social networks… well, doing just these will bring in little traffic but not as much expected.
How the blogging system works now? I am still trying to figure that one out. But I do know that to push your blog even more, or to make your blog have better ranking on search engines, you need other people help to share your blog to their social networks so your blog can have a better chance to be seen by a bigger audience.
The truth is – people will not promote your blog post, unless it is worth the share. But wait, you are a new blogger, how do you get other bloggers/site owners to share your blog post?
Making relationship with other bloggers might just be the best thing. Though, you need to have a good blog post and title before it can catch other blogger’s attention.
Thank God, there are some platforms like bizsugar and Justretweet that brings bloggers with similar interest together 🙂 .
You don’t need traffic when you have this
To make bloggers that are before you (the pro bloggers) share your blog post to their social networks, you need to make yourself known to them. And how do I am mean?
→ Making valuable comments at their new blog posts – when making the comment, make sure that you are among the first 5 commenters.
→ Sharing their posts on your social networks (if you find the post worth sharing)
→ Add them to your social network and engage with them more…
→ Write an epic post, but make sure you give them link love when writing the “epic” post – after you must have publish the post, send them a private message informing them that they have been mentioned on the post. Give them a really good reason to check out the post.

If they read the message you sent them, they will definitely check out the “epic post” of yours – as long as the post title is catchy 🙂 .
Making friends with bloggers that are blogging on the same niche as you is also one best way to gain traffic.
Remember: this world (the world of blogging) is all about reciprocating. Share theirs and they’ll share yours. And also put this in mind – not all bloggers reciprocate.
Share their posts on your social networks and make sure you mention them so they’ll know that you did share their blog post>>> connect with them through social media >>> sometime, ask simple questions when making comments…
When you draw their attention and make friends with them, I am sure that they will definitely share your blog post to their social network when they visit your blog post as well. There, both parties win 🙂 …
Do note that it is not every blogger that do visit their commenter’s blog. But hey, it is better to try than not to try at all, right?
I sincerely do feel that making connection is way better than doing things alone. When you get hammered by Google updates, your friends can easily bring you back up, or when you go for a vacation, you can easily make a strong comeback with the help of your friends.
Doing seo to rank good in search engine is a good idea every blogger would recommend, but making good friends/connection that will help promote you should also be in that list of your traffic generation.
Back to you:
To so many, the above tips sounds funny but let’s just put it like this – I am sharing my piece of advice to all new bloggers coming into the blogging world.
I know I did not say so much on this topic, but thank God you’re there to add something to the post 🙂 .

Great Post and great advice for newbie bloggers!!
Reciprocating is a great way as we need each other in the blogosphere!! Scratch my back and I will scratch yours kind of thing. This is by far the best way to get some buzz going.
I also agree that building relationships and connecting with other bloggers is the key ingredient of blogging and you have provided great advices on how to do this two important things to get so much traffic and eyeballs on our content.
Thanks Babanature for a great share!! Have a great weekend ahead.
You’ve said it well Neamat,
reciprocating and making friends with fellow bloggers is indeed the best way to get faster result.
Thank you dear friend for the wonderful contribution. Do have a nice weekend… 🙂
Building connections is the very best thing you can do as an internet marketer. Make connection with bloggers, companies that offers services, affiliate programs etc this is vital when you need help. Just shared this on G+… Nice!
You’re definitely right, Daniel.
Thanks for the share brother… I did share your post on Twitter, but it seems that you do not input your twitter handle on your share button.
Thanks once again. Do have a blessed weekend…
what a very nice artice..
My friends needs to see this article.
Baba Nature thanks oonce again for this wonderful article
Most Welcome Anyinature,
glad you liked the post and do hope you will carry on with the tips 🙂
Do have a good weekend
It’s been a while since I’ve been on your blog but I see that you are still going strong!
I do have to say that it takes at least to people to build a relationship. Besides that, you would be left alone being your own company.
Same goes for blogging. If you want to become known and build a successful blog, then you must start it off by connecting with other bloggers within your niche as you said. This lays out the foundation of your marketing journey online as well as offline.
I can remember a couple of months ago I went on vacation and took a break from blogging for a couple of weeks. When I came back, although I lost a lot of traffic, my blogging friends were still there and they’re helping not only get more traffic, but targeted traffic. That’s what we all aim for right?
Thanks for the share Babanature! I hope you’re having a great weekend!
Yeah, its been a while indeed. Glad to see you here once again sharing your thoughts with us all 🙂
to be successful, one needs to have good friends that will be willing to help when the need be.
Thanks for your input once again dear friend. And do have a wonderful weekend…
I completely agree with ALL that you have written 🙂
Nothing works better than building relationships with fellow bloggers and being there for each other. Yes, reciprocation is how it all works , but as you mentioned, there are many who don’t reciprocate and it depends on you if you want to carry on with such people or find such people who respond.
Yet, with the friends you make online, overtime, through your comments, you develop a wonderful friendship with them. So, when you have tough times in life or are slapped by Google or the updates – you still have your friends as your support pillars, isn’t it? I know it always has worked for me and would for anyone else.
Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend 🙂
Yes making friends, building connection is one best way to grow in the blogging world. And for sure my friend, you’re a perfect example 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and dropping your thought as always. Do have yourself a good weekend
In business – online or off, connecting with ‘old timers’ in the niche pays better than trying to do it all alone. Sadly, many bloggers realize this fact late. However, it’s better late than never, right?
It is my honest belief that newbies will find this post of yours super productive and will not make the same mistakes we all did make when starting out.
Be certain to make the day great!
Yeah, you’re right… Connecting with fellow bloggers and those that are before you is one sure way to grow faster.
Thanks for stopping by dropping your comment. Do have a nice week ahead

Thanks Babanature for this timely reminder. The best cure for a sluggish traffic is to maintaining a good relationship with those who are always online, they are the only once that can promote you.

Yes you are utterly right about each and everything listed in the post and I believe in business we need loyal customers for sure.
You’re right Scot,
Do have a wonderful week ahead..,
Nice Update sir !
I extremely acknowledge your write-ups but , just a question .
How do we solve the problem of “Quest For Power” of top nigerian bloggers ? They hardly accept your friend request on social networks .
I could remember earlier last month when i created Gistconcept.com , i tried to get connected with some but only to found myself being turned down by all ; even the not-worthy webmasters . I tried my best only to get the fundamental aid from Anyinature Damasta .
I thank God, am now happy getting aids with aliens but after reading your article , i will still try the second time .
Hoping to get your reply…
Here is the thing, you do not add people because you want to ask them questions about your blog or the likes. Some make their income from blogging you know…
Whe n adding bloggers, add them because you want to get to know them. Comment on their blog more often, with time, they will get to know you and start following you as well…
Hope my reply is good enough? if not, do let me know and I will clarify more…
Thanks for your comment and do have a wonderful week ahead.
P.S try to get yourself a gravatar, you’ll look more professional and respected more.
Love your post!
I agree that a blogger must network, share and comment on posts fellow bloggers write.
Good to know that you find my post interesting enough to comment.

Networking in a meaningful way is key. It’s really the only way to build meaningful relationships that are mutually beneficial. Good post
I love what said. “Networking in a meaningful way”… That’s the key ingredient for sure. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a wonderful weekend…
One of things that I have found to most effective in building relationships and sharing content on line is to join groups in the social networks of people who are interested in the topics you write about.
Yeah, joining social media groups that has similar interest as you is also one smooth way to kick start your blogging career…
But beside just sharing your content with the group, making connection is one keypoint every blogger should focus on…
Thank you for your wonderful comment, it was indeed appreciated.
Do have a great weekend…
You have nice tips to help bloggers. It is nice to have a network and a connection that you can rely on.
We must have a relation that can benefit both of the people linked through any network.
Yeah, having a network one can rely on is great for both your site stat and as well as the monetary aspect as well.
Thanks for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a wonderful week ahead…

Could not agree with you more. Relationship building is the foundation of a very good and worthwhile blogging experience. I have found that spreading the word among those who have the same or similar interests to be the key.
You are definitely right. Blogging feels more alive when you’re with the right network and right traffic 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Do have a blessed week ahead…
Hi Babanature, I found your post very helpful. Lately I have been having problems with my Alexa rank. I went from 17,000 to now 28,000. I keep on doing my usual “social sharing” and commenting on blogs but my rank keeps on dropping. I do not know what to do anymore. I hope your tips will bring my rank back up to what it was before.
Did you bothered to check your Analytic to know where the problem came from? Sometimes, it might be the keyword you ranked for drop.
But engage with communities and start building that relationship. Once your social presence is visible, your traffic will increase.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comment with us.
Do have a blessed week ahead…
Thanks for the tips! I created a blog a few months ago and I’ve been learning from your blog how to increase the traffic.
It takes a lot of time and work, but somehow I cannot stop.
Very soon, after the hassle, you will benefit from your blog… There are lots of opportunities and benefits in blogging.
Thank you for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a blessed week ahead.
I must admit, I got pulled in by your curiosity based title. And I agree with what you have to say and I think it’s a genuinely helpful post. But, at the same time I found the title misleading (if you know what I mean).
Thanks for stopping by and dropping your comment, it is indeed appreciated.
Do have yourself a good week…
May be we need some loyal readers instead of lot of normal readers.
Hi Babanature,I am first time on your site and really got impressed. :)What an amazing and interesting post indeed.Fantastic new idea, really i ‘ll implement for my site and will see what happen….Thanks for sharing……
