Hi all, sharing final part of 50 ways to get more traffic to your site. Hope you’ve been enjoying the series and it has been helpful!
Grow your email list
A big email list is your best asset for getting more traffic. Your email subscribers will be the first ones to read your content and share it with their audiences, giving you that initial boost whenever you publish something.
Run a Giveaway
A giveaway is an excellent tactic to get more traffic to your site as well as get more email subscribers. People love contests and prizes. Try one that’s suitable for your budget.
Offer a Free Product
Create a free product related to your site’s content, host it on your site. If the product is good and people are visiting the page, not only will it get picked up by search engines, but the people you send it to will tell their friends about it and drive more traffic your way.
Create reviews such as Top 5 hosting sites of 2015 etc. Depending on the type of content you create, you can publish awards to companies in your niche in order to recognise them for excellence in certain areas. This will help not only bring the traffic to your site but also draw the sites you are ranking to work with you.
Comment on Relevant Blogs
Search and get rss feeds with blogs that have audiences similar to yours. Whenever new posts go out that you can add thoughts to, jump in and leave comments that add to the discussion. Similar to message boards, don’t spam your links. Be helpful!
Be friendly! When someone reaches out to you asking for an opinion for an article, always give them one. Remember to ask them to link back to your site with your quote!
Site aggregators like AllTop.com are a good place to submit your site to so that it can be found by people looking for new sites to check out. Do take note to avoid dodgy aggregators sites. Do check on their reviews before submitting your site to them as it may cause more harm than good.
Reach out to sites in the same niche as you and suggest content that their audience might be interested in. Work with them to create content that benefits their readers and ask to add a link back to your site. This is similar to content trading arrangement.
Acquire a newsletter
Dead site with large email list built up can still be valuable. If you have the budget, offer to purchase their email list and pitch them on your own site.
Syndicate Your Content to Other Sites
If you don’t have time for guest posting, you can opt to let aggregator sites republish your content to their audiences. As long as you include links to your other articles in the post, it’s a great way to get in front of a new audience and drive more traffic to your site.
