How To Increase Blog Traffic Without SEO?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the best way to increase your blog traffic. Everyone will try to optimize their blog to the maximum possible extent to increase their blog traffic. But there are few other methods using which you can increase your blog traffic without SEO. Many bloggers follow these methods to draw massive traffic to their blogs.


1) Guest Posting:

Guest posting is one of the proved method to build backlinks and increasing your blogs traffic.If you write high quality guest posts on blogs with massive traffic then your blogs traffic will be increased massively. One of my friend wrote a guest post on a top blog and in return he got 1000 unique visitors in a single day(sounds great right?). Identify the best blogs in your network with good traffic and start guest posting.

2) Video Submission:

Make video tutorials which are related to your posts and submit to video channels like YouTube, Vimeo etc. YouTube is the top video sharing website with more than 3-4 Billion views per day.Its not only a video channel but it can be a source for unlimited traffic. Leave your blog post link in the description of the video, if your video goes viral then you will get massive traffic to your blog.

3) Advertising your blog:

You can advertise your blogs with the blogs with huge traffic which are under your niche. Do this only if you have low traffic and if your blog is new. You can use Google Adwords and other advertising networks to get a targeted audience. Additionally, you could also set a messaging api to interact with your audience, maybe ask for content suggestions, and also direct your reader to your page.

If you have a section on your website that is especially popular with a new audience, such as podcasts, you can advertise that section. Nowadays, there are various companies that can help you promote your podcasts on the blogs of renowned content creators as well as YouTube channels. Suppose you have recorded a series of informative podcasts; perhaps you would like to advertise on Bill Maher YouTube channel or website. In this way, you may be able to reach a large section of the audience that supports Bill Maher.

4) Social Media:

Social Networking sites like Facebook, Google+, StumbleUpon, Digg etc can be the source for unlimited traffic. Get more Facebook, Twitter, Google+ followers. More the followers means more the traffic. Share your articles on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ wherever appropriate. As soon as you finish posting your article submit the article to all the top social networking sites.This not only build traffic but also build backlinks as well.

5) Join Online Forums:

Join few good online forums under your niche and start helping in solving the questions asked by others. Leave your signature in your comments. Don’t leave unnatural and irrelevant comments. Try to help other by solving their problems in a genuine manner. If people like the way you answer and interact with members then they will visit your blog for sure.

      Using the above methods you will see a boost in your search engine ranking but it wont have an negative effect.Referral traffic is always good ,it wont effect your search engine ranking at all.
      If you buy traffic then it may have negative effects.
      If you employ genuine methods to drive traffic then it wont have any effect in your blog ranking in search engines ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Delawer Pirzada
      Firstly thanks for dropping down your opinion.It doesnt matter whether its positive or negative ,we are very happy to hear your feedback.
      Coming to what you have said
      1.Guest Post:
      No doubt guest posting for backlinks is a part of seo.But the traffic which you get by guest posting is referral traffic,so if you do guest posting on blogs with good traffic then you will also get good traffic from that blog itself.
      2.Joining Online Forums:
      I should say that now a days almost all the famous online forums made outbound links as nofollow.So though you join online forums it doesnt add any value to your blogs search engine ranking.The only way you can get good traffic from forums is referral traffic where you leave your signature in your comments by helping others ๐Ÿ™‚
