Driving Traffic With Social Media
With sites like Facebook and Twitter you can post or tweet every time you submit a new post to your blog. With enough followers you will be able to reach a large number of people. This is easy, simple gratification with page views going up immediately. Many people make money blogging in this way alone.
Submitting To Social Bookmark Sites
By submitting your URLs to social bookmarking sites you can ensure that your URL is posted on an already highly-trafficked site. Tagging with the right keywords is of paramount importance so when a person searches for topics yours is sure to "pop up". Some of the most popular social bookmarking sites include: Delicious, StumbleUpon, Reddit, and Digg!, but there are thousands more out there that you can choose from.
Forum Posting and Blog Commenting
By being involved in other blogs and forums you can leave quality comments that will help that particular community as well as leaving a backlink to your own site. I personally have the WP plugin "CommentLuv" enabled on all of my blogs at Blogging For Dads, Healthy Choices, and Tweeting Parents. This allows each person that comments to leave a link with their latest blog post back to their own blogs. See? Bloggers helping other blogger make money and get traffic!
