5 Free Traffic Methods That Converts

Congrats on creating a brand new blog. Now, what? To become a successful blogger, You have to drive traffic to your blog. People won’t see your content until you promote your stuff online. Here traffic does not mean that people come to your blog, Scan a few posts and then leave your site. These type of traffic is useless for you.

Free traffic Methods

In this post, I am going to show the 5 free traffic methods that convert very well. There is a lot of argument whether free or paid traffic works? Paid traffic is definitely a good option to drive huge traffic but its need budget. In many cases, I have seen that many bloggers drive huge traffic using free methods.

Ryan Biddulph is a blogger who knows exactly how to leverage huge traffic from free sources.  You can also buy his ebooks to learn more about blogging.

Here are some of the best and free traffic methods that convert very well by providing quality and human traffic to your blog.

#1. Search Engine Optimization.

SEO is one of the best, free, and highly convertible traffic sources. Bloggers are thrived to gain traffic from search engines. To utilize this method of traffic, you have to create quality content and make your site search engine friendly.  Google loves the quality and relevant content that resonates with your readers. Make your site navigation easy so that users can browse your site without having any issue. You can read our post on how to make your site more SEO friendly.

#2.  Guest Posting

Guest posting is one of the best ways to drive huge traffic while spreading your content across the internet. It helps you to build your authority online. It also helps you to connect with fellow bloggers.

You have to create a good bond and relationship with other bloggers by sharing their content, featuring them on your blog, blog commenting. I have seen that many newbies directly approach a blogger and ask them for guest posting. This is not a good idea and hence most of them did not get any reply from them.

Make sure that you have to build a good bond before approaching them. They will surely welcome you on their blog for guest posting. I personally use this approach and it helps me to submit a guest post on some high authority blogs.

#3. Blog commenting

Blog commenting does not have any SEO value as most of the blogs provide nofollow links in their comment section. However, It is a good way to drive blasts of traffic to your blog. Posting one-liner comments do not make any magic. These type of comments are automatically trashed by the blog owners.

Blog commenting is an art and you have to learn it. Check out Donna Merrill’s blog. She is a professional blogging coach and knows how to drop a comment on blogs. You can learn more from her.

Make your blog comment detailed and relevant to the content. This is what I called a genuine and authentic comment. When you do that people love to know more about you and visit your blog. It is really a golden opportunity for you to build a loyal readership for your blog.

#4.  Social Networking Sites

From the inception of the social networking sites, People loves to connect with people online. Today social networking sites are not only the place of chatting and hanging around with people. It is now a business hub. Today thousands of companies are joining social networking sites to connect with their target users.

Lisa Sicard knows how to leverage this free source of traffic by sharing your content on your social networking sites. She is a pro blogger and knows everything about social networking sites and how they work.  Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn are some of the best traffic sources.

Make a daily habit of sharing your content on your social networks. Build your social presence by connect with bloggers, sharing their contents, etc. You have to build a mutual relationship to make most out of your social network campaigns.

#5. Online Forums

Forums are a great place to generate free and quality traffic. Some of the best forums which I have joined since 2010 are Warriorforum, Digitalpoint, WebmasterSun, etc. These are the community where you can learn more about blogging and marketing. You can use your signature links to drive traffic to your blog.

Joining these forums is not the last thing and it really won’t work if you are not active in these forums. You have to actively participate in these forums to build trust and traffic as well. Magic won’t happen in a single day. You have to contribute yourself by sharing your ideas, suggestions, feedback to build a trust and faith.

Over to you

These are some of the best free traffic generation method that helps you to drive quality and engaging traffic to your blog. I personally use these methods to drive traffic to my blog. These are the proven ways to build a huge readership for your blog. I have said already that magic won’t happen in a single day. Free traffic works great for the long run and provides your sustainable traffic.

    I do believe that if a person is a blogger then commenting is so important. Leaving a good comment on a person’s blog as well as answering comments on our own blog is important.

    Hi Vishwajeet

    Traffic to blog is like blood to body. No traffic, dead blog.

    It is really necessary to discover the opportunities to boost traffic in real time.

    When trying to build traffic streams one should focus on bringing traffic on the oldest posts.

    SEO is the very first thing that helps you bring traffic to the oldest posts. But stay white hat, as you do not want the bute of black cat.

    Do guest blogging with caution, don”‘t overdo it and also only create post to add value.

    Blog commenting is there to help you build relationships. Blind blog comments make you spammer and friendly comments makes you the friend.

    Social networking sites are the breath of marketing. Cannot compete with competitors without positive branding on social networking sites.

    Inline forums are there to help people. If you are the one who believe in helping others than forums are the best place to bring traffic.

    I hope I have not said too much as I always have something more to say.

    Thanks for the nice post and mentioning my friends.

    Don’t forget me, it old blogger friend.
