I've thought of talking about this for sometime now. However other commitments have taken me off for the past few days. Besides, I discovered a few days ago that the blog theme was breaking. So I had to work on this first. At the moment things are back to normal and so I felt it's time to talk about this.
I know generating traffic is always an interesting topic for every blogger. I for one, I'm always on the look out for free but powerful ways I can drive traffic to this blog. Well I just love free ways! You know why dish out some dough when you can get it for free? You know what I mean, right?
Ok, so I've discovered quite a few ways of driving traffic to your blog. And I believe you'll also want to use this free method I'll be talking about here. You don't have to spend your life savings on expensive ‘traffic generation’ software or even paid traffic!
The new method I've just discovered is contributing your content to High Traffic Blogs!
You see I've just discovered that there are some high traffic blogs out there that will gladly allow you to post your content for free. Maybe you're wondering what is different with this and guest posting?
Well there are just a few differences. You know with guest blog posting you will have a hard time being accepted on some of these high traffic blogs. Especially if you're just starting out. And then with most guest posting there are conditions like you not posting your guest blog article any other place even on your own blog. But no so with what I'm talking about here. In fact with this one you can post articles you've alread posted on your blog!
It just work the same as article marketing. But you know many of the article directories do not allow duplicate contents. That's articles on your site will need to be re-worked before submission to these article directories.
Ok, enough of that let me give you an example of such blogs. Here's one you can use right away. It is called The Marketing Blog Zine – http://marketing-blogzine.com.
The Marketing Blog Zine talks about Internet marketing and making money online. It provides targeted traffic for anyone who wants to learn about Internet marketing.
If you want to divert traffic from blogs like these, what you can do is to contribute your own blog posts as a contributor. Talk about topics that are relevant to their blog as well as your own. This is a good way to capture the reader’s attention.
You will reap the following benefits:
• You get to tap into their traffic and drive traffic to your blog
• You get to build your credibility online because you get to leverage on their ‘authority’
• The blog post remains there for a certain period of time ensuring that you will get maximum exposure
Ensure that your content is relevant. When submiting your content there is one section that you must take note of because it is really valuable. This is the author's bio. This bio block allows you to ‘sell’ yourself and brand yourself as an expert in whatever niche that you are in. if you've submitted articles to article directories, then you know what I'm talking about. Use this bio box wisely and you can be sure to drive tons of traffic to your website!
Hope this article was helpful. Let's hear your thoughts on this. If you've used sites like these before you can also let us know.
