  • Great Job Amit…all these tips are valid for generating good traffic to your blog. I would have expected more ways of retaining that traffic on your blog. You did mention about great content, which i think should be the Top 1 method of getting and retaining traffic without much bounce rates.

    Thanks for sharing the info.

    • hey frnd i have an advice for you , publish your post at that time when there is visits on your website….

    • See Anchit,

      Blogging and Getting Traffic is not an easy job specially from last 1 Year, Reason : Panda and Penguine. . .. . Rathar than concentraing on Keyword Density, Main Keyword, Suggestive keyword you should provide Quality and Obsly Unique article. Don’t try to rewrite an article which is already written on Web.

      Example : Top 10 Mobile, Its already writen now if you will write with changing some keyword, sentence then it would be treated as Reharshed article. So try to provide unique article.

      Everyone following this steps and out of 100, 100 guys got success.
      You must be doing something wrong, Or i will suggest you to hire some SEO Consultant for your blog to check your Sites SEO Structure.

      • Writing the same article again and again was never a good idea. You have given a better example in this case. But for blogging, i think almost has been said earlier, but it is our unique pitch that our readers want to read, so sometimes, i do write pre-written articles. Do you think this is a Good idea ?

  • These are all good ideas, but some take time. Like keyword research and ranking for that term. Another way for instant traffic could be through search advertising like PPC. You can get cheap clicks, just make sure it’s targeted traffic. Thanks.

    • Thanks Steve for dropping your comment.
      Yeah agree with you, Keyword research and Ranking is not an easy job, we have to test everytime with new planning. . . We should test each and every part. . .
      Then only we can get success in this new SEO Era 🙂
      Yeah i wrote this article for newbie blogger so i haven’t discussed about PPC.
      Amit Shaw recently posted…When To Distribute The Blogging Burden With SEO Specialists?My Profile

  • Hi Amit and Atish,

    I’m relieved to see that I follow most of these tips already – I haven’t got around to guest posting yet (no time!) but hope to do so in future, and I also know I need to make better use of analytics.

    Also, I must admit I’m probably not that hot at keyword research and should probably pay more attention to it than I do – so thanks for the prompt on that one!

    I’ve just spotted Sagar’s tip about publishing your post at the right time – have you any advice about that. Aren’t some days better than others too?

    I think another good strategy is to promote your posts on social media sites – again, timing’s probably important there to get the best results.

    Thanks for these great tips.

    Sue Neal recently posted…Writing Tips: 10 Ways to Avoid Editing as You WriteMy Profile

    • Thank you so much for stopping by Sue. Yes posting your article during the busy period of traffic can give you better hits. Most probably I would suggest don’t publish post on saturday and sunday because you can notice that on weekends there is less traffic flow to your site.

    • Thanks for dropping your comment on my GP Sue 🙂
      Yeah agree with Atish Bro that posting your article during the busy period of traffic can give you better hits. But if you are good enough to research a keyword and you always write for SERP then i don’t think you should consider Timing :). If you are getting more visitors from Social Media then we should consider the timing.
      BTW Thanks for dropping your comment.
      Amit Shaw recently posted…How to Generate Traffic in the New SEO Era of 2013My Profile

  • Of the list above I would say the best way to get fast traffic to your blog is by commenting. This is because the blogger himself often looks at your blog, particularly if the comment is good. And sometimes he’ll return the favour.

    If it’s a popular blog and you get in early with your comment then you’ll often get some of the readers of the post clicking through as well.

  • Oddly enough that never seemed to work for me.

  • Using social media is a powerful way to get instant traffic since it is the best way to reach more number of readers people in a no time…:)

  • The primary thing is that one should be able to use wordpress upto the optimum level. A lots of people just Click on New Post, Create and just publish. Even when I was at beginer level, was doing same.
    Further, the interlinking of article matters a lot. Interlinks within an article sometime provide the answers to the rising questions of the reader,, Also perform a great job in indexing of main post in search engines. and results more traffic on the blog.
    These are great tips Amit. Gr8 work.

  • Great points! I’ve found guest blog posting and commenting on other blogs brings in a good amount of traffic for the amount time it takes to do these. Keyword research for metadata is extremely important, as well as topics that are trending – timing is everything!

  • Including a facility for the readers to let their friends know about it is a great idea! 🙂
    Its time I must add a sharing widget ! 🙂
    Thanks Atish .

    Hossain recently posted…5 fundamental tips to make a successful blogMy Profile

  • Great tips, but I think one that should mention is submitting articles to article directories. I’ve had as much success in this regard as I have had with guest posting, and sometimes the rankings in search engines is significantly better as well. Granted you don’t have the relationship aspect that you have when connecting with a fellow blogger in your niche, but I still think there are advantages to at least sending several articles to directories every month.

  • Thanks for sharing Amit! Great article for people who just starting to earn money via blogging!

  • All mentioned points are the best way to get traffic.. Other than this, you may submit to article directories or place your article link on sites like scoop.it

  • These things are really very effective to get instant traffic for any website, website should have unique and fast loading theme and it has unique content also, content is still king it’s the reason for getting more traffic and an effective content can turn visitors into customers, guest post is helpful. You have shared a useful article for traffic, keep it up.

  • What keyword research tools would you recommend Amit . I am unable to find a good tool
