Almost everyone wants to create a blog and earn money from it, so I might have to say why will you want to create a blog and not earn from it? One of the major sources of making money blogging online is getting massive traffic to your blog.
There are lots of ways you can get traffic to your blog without hiring SEO companies or even spending tons of money.
Here are 5 things you can do to get more traffic to your site
- Submit articles to article directories at least twice a week
- Start a blog that links back to your website. (if you have one)
- SEO your website properly.
- Blog commenting, post comments on blogs that will lead back to your website.
- Post to forums, you can either comment on topics or start a new topic.
Let’s discuss each point extensively,
Submitting articles to article directories at least twice a week is a powerful method to drive traffic back to your website. Articles directories are article database websites that contain lots of articles, where you can submit articles, and you will have the opportunity of linking back to your website. Readers will get the opportunity to want to read more thereby making their way down to your blog. Articles submitted will be there for a very long time, giving you a link juice which also helps your website ranking. However, these article directory sites also come in their different Page Ranks (PR), but I won’t want to go into that for now.
You can use the following article directories:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is also another great means of getting lots of traffic to your website, so if you are still asking how can I get traffic to my blog or website? I believe your questions has been answered. Ensure you set up your Meta tags properly and also make sure that your description, keyword tags, and title are all targeting a major keyword which you are optimizing your site with. Also,
- Make sure your domain name has your main keyword in it.
- The title tag of your pages has your main keyword in it.
- All images on your blog contain the alt tags that contain your keywords.
- Your main keyword should be contained in the first paragraph of your content or blog post.
- Also, ensure a keyword density of 2% while writing your content.
You can create a self-hosted blog either on the Blogger or WordPress platform that will link back to your website. For example, Google alongside other search engines index blogs at Blogger.com frequently and when you post an update on your blog, these bots come and crawl around your content and trackback the links back to your website. Hence, by submitting articles to directories and posting to your blog you are getting contents to search engines and the spiders will come to your blog and let all search engines know you have a relevant blog, and they will send traffic to your blog which will lead back to your website eventually.
Join forums in your niche by simply searching on Google, sign up in these forums then start looking for discussions and also read posts. Be an active member, you will get quality traffic by offering good advice. You can do research on the topic you want to contribute on and maybe when you get familiar with the forum you can quote your responses with links to your blog.
Also, make sure you have a link to your blog in the signature column so that visitors can visit your site and also search engines can follow your link back for massive traffic.
Blog commenting is also a great way to get traffic to your site, and you apply the same technique as in the forum posting here also. Search for blogs in the same niche as yours, read the post and leave nice comments. You should know that most blog and website owners will screen comments before they approve them, so you will have to make your comments constructive and relevant enough so as to get it approved.
If you can apply these traffic generation techniques, then you will be sure to get massive visits on your website, and that’s only when you can get to start making money online blogging.
