Mainly the new bloggers give up their blogging just because they don’t see any visitor from their blog. Not only the new blogger, who have started their blogging profession a long time ago doesn’t observe much improvisation in their traffic. What is the main reason?
The core reason is they don’t follow a few guidelines which have to be followed by a blogger to obtain traffic to a new blog. Let’s read how to get traffic to my blog for free.
New Blog Traffic
Though there are many ways to obtain visitors to a new blog, the most important factor is the network. The more networks you have the more traffic you’ll get. The most excellent way to build a network around your blog is: start interacting with others using social networks like-
- Google Plus
Why I’m talking about only these four sites because it’s simple to extend your word and follow other bloggers easily using these social media sites and get traffic to a new blog.
Following are some excellent ways to bring traffic to a new blog. These are not for the only new blog; you can follow these ways for your existing blog.

Comment on top blogs in your niche tries to be the first 5 commenters.
Tips: Subscribe to their RSS feeds. Don’t spam their blogs by writing one-liners. Add value to your comments. If you want to get traffic daily this is the best way to go.
Type “your niche + blog” in Google search and know which the top blogs in your niche are there. See an image example given below-
After the comment, guest post is the most important part of blog traffic and rank. Few bloggers don’t trust this way. But believe me, it’s extremely effective. Here is a list of Guest post website link.
This is a great way to get traffic. Facebook, Twitter & Reddit is more popular.
Join in your niche related facebook groups. Promote yourself and your blog out there. BTW Facebook alone is giving me more than 200 visitors daily (I am not promoting every day. Afzal Khan is also getting great traffic from Facebook). So don’t ignore getting Facebook traffic to your blog. You may find it difficult in the beginning but when you start promoting others content and when you get to know each other on Facebook, it becomes very easy!
Search for top bloggers in your niche and follow their followers on Twitter. This is a simple yet effective way of growing your targeted twitter followers. Once you have done this, you can tweet your new content and ask your followers to re-tweet it.
Get the niche related subreddits and subscribe them before posting. One thing important to know, you must skip spam. Please remember this thing first. Otherwise, you will get shadowbanned from Reddit.
Make a small video and add your blog link at the starting and submit them to YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe etc. You may use Screenr, Camtasia Studio or another similar app to create free videos.
Make Your Time on Writing Detailed Articles
Never think that you can bring quality traffic without any effort. You need to differentiate yourself from other bloggers to become successful. It takes time to make new content, I agree but you shouldn’t waste whole time making only normal or average 600 words posts.
Spend Time to Make Great Content
Write detailed posts with 1000 to 2000+ words once in a while. If you are not a full-time blogger like me, at least target to make complete posts twice a month. So that you can take others attention and you can show your blogging expertise to your readers.
It’s really important for you to create killer articles regularly to survive in the blogosphere. This can bring your quality traffic from other sites or search engines.
Don’t Forget SEO
Most people say to forget about SEO when you are in the beginning. I think that’s a stupid suggestion!
You have to focus on which keywords to use and what will be the keyword density you should maintain your content to get search engine traffic to your blog. This method is extremely important to bring organic traffic (Traffic from the search engine) to your blog. Because it’s free of charge and extremely effective!
Make sure that you’re not keyword stuffing your content. It makes your readers hard to digest what you’re trying to say in your contents.
And do proper keywords research before you’re writing the articles. Then embed them into your posts. If you’re a beginner writer then this is sufficient! Don’t go beyond, you’ll better understand about search engine optimization (SEO) when you’re wasting more time on blogging.
Always try to re-tweet and promote your fellow bloggers before asking them to promote your content. This can make others promote your content sooner or later and you will have high chances of getting their attention if they find it useful.
I don’t recommend guest blogging here in this post. A major reason is without having any online reputation you can’t cope up with other bloggers to get accepted your guest posts. When they reject you, you’ll feel down to submit another guest post to them.
So, focus on building a network by blog commenting, writing great stuff and social media networking using the above tips.
