5 Tips for increasing traffic to your blog
Tip 1. Internet Presence
Now, I’ve already talked about this in the post ‘Developing an Online Presence – Top 5 Tips‘ but this step is essential for developing frequent and targeted traffic.
It’s proven that when you contribute to forums, websites and other blogs in your niche, traffic automatically follows you! The more you contribute and the more helpful your contributions are, the more people start to trust you, sounds fairly obvious doesn’t it?
So, Tip Number 1:
- Check out my post: Developing an Online Presence – Top 5 Tips
- Join a forum which is directly related to your niche and get posting but make sure your posts are 100% useful.
- Find websites and/or blogs that are, again, directly related to your niche. Same rules with the forum posts, write them as best as you can and become the local expert that people want to follow!
Hope this helps, more tomorrow…
