With that being said, here is an article worth reading and getting an “idea” about traffic generation like a pro.

Share on Social Media

One of the most simple ways to get decent traffic from. Even if you don’t have a large following, don’t skip this part.

Social media is very important to get traffic from, since it is targeted and taking a huge part on the online world as of today and going into the future.

Even Google is looking into Social Media as a signal of their search engine traffic. More shares and links on a Social Media site signals it is important to Google and will rank it much better than those not shared much.

“The links that you build through social media, the references, the authority – all can have an impact in various ways on how you are ranked and listed even in ‘regular’ search results,” says Danny Sullivan, Editor-in-chief of Search Engine Land, in an email interview. “Social media allows for people to provide more trusted signals.”

Two social media sites that have gotten this blog an amount of traffic has been:

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn

Those two have been the best for quick traffic. Both sites can have friendships made and share exclusively fast with each other. Take advantage of their groups where you can share.

Another social site is:

  • Twitter

Make sure tweet often from specific users and follow users that follow back. Simple stuff.

Other social sites according to eBiz:

  • Google+
  • StumbleUpon
  • DeviantArtLive Journal

Commenting the Smart Way

Another way to get fast traffic is through commenting. About the same way of getting traffic from social media. Both go through the content you write and by your “image” visibility.

There is a difference of getting some traffic and a whole lot!

Comment strategically. Have a RSS Reader on hand and see when posts are first published. Choose about five or ten blogs that receive good traffic, and try to be in the top 5 area of the comment section.

Always strive for that top comment!

Join Communities that Share

Communities have many site owners and bloggers going into their site and sharing their content. This way, make sure to add yours since many bloggers are doing the same thing to get their word out.

It is simple to do and can receive some traffic from there depending on how much time you invest int he communities.

More Time = More Traffic

But I advise to not spend too much time in a community since they’re more important things to work on to get your content out there.

Some examples of communities that you can join to get traffic:

  • BizSugar
  • Blogengage
  • Blokube

Bookmarking on Popular Social Sites

StumbleUpon is the most popular along with Reddit. They both get incredible traffic everyday and probably been heard by you before.

What works on these two is content that is viral and currently trending. I have seen this countless times with others and myself. Those that say it many times, believe them.

What else works is content or an article that solves a problem. Evergreen content does so well as well. It has to be written very well with your own unique style to it.

According to eBiz, these are sites that can be benefited from:

  • Digg
  • BuzzFeed
  • Delicious
  • SlashDot

Asking for other Site Owners or Bloggers to Share

A simple yet such an effective way of getting traffic back to your site or blog. Get in contact of others and don’t think that you are the only one out there.

They are probably on any social site, get in contact and start a conversation with them. Connect and ask them to share your post once in a while. They will gladly help you.

Also do the same in return for them to continue what they do.

They could be hanging out in the communities mentioned before, and there is an opportunity for them to share.

Add “Eye-Appealing” Images to your Article

Believe it or not, images have a huge impact on how they perceive things.

Add nice Images to your posts. Actually, always add “the best” images to your posts.

I have had many clicks and shares to some articles that I have added sexy and awesome pictures to. It has a psychological impact on the reader’s brain.

Link to other Posts

Each time you link to another article, the receiving end such as the website(blog) will receive a ping. This works only on a “WordPress” blog and no other else.

This isn’t a problem since WordPress is the most widespread blog platform used. Just link to a similar article and see the “other side” to check out your article.

If the other person likes what he sees, expect him to comment and maybe even “share” the article around, with his followers.

Linking to other relevant sources shows the connection to other respectable people. Readers take notes of this and will be more “likely” to share your article.

Add your Article to Article Directories

Yet another simple way to get you article in front of “targeted” audience. Each time you add a new article to an account of an Article Directory, you are establishing yourself as an authoritative author.

Just add a single article to the top 10 article directories and get them published on other sites.

Don’t add them just for SEO, since the links are not of High Value to Google. Just get them published on other blogs, and get the targeted traffic back to your site.
