How do you Get Traffic for your Blogs?

Updated on August 10, 2012

Do you blog?

See results

I hold several blogs, all of which are in For the likes of me, I can't seem to figure out how Wordpress works. I tried creating a personal blog in Wordpress. That didn't work.

It seemed easy at first; but when I started customizing my site, I got confused, annoyed and pissed. So, I closed my site; and transferred the same to Blogger.

Getting traffic to my blogs

Aside from writing with Hubpages, I employ other writing sites in promoting my blogs. I have been a long-time member of Triond. I'm not particularly proud of it now, given how Triond turned out. But I do have over a hundred articles there. Now, I wonder what to do with them all... Anyway, I also write in Knoji, Infobarrel and Bukisa.

Recently however, I learned about another writing site called Perhaps, you've never heard of it. Wordcrunchers allows 2 backlinks for at least a 200-word article.

I figure that I can promote my blog posts as well as my Hubpages articles in Wordcrunchers. I don't mind writing a brief article in order to leave 2 backlinks to my contents. More so, it offers an ad space for your contents in case you have an adsense, chitika or adbrite ads.

As a hubber, do you think it is wise to backlink your Hubs with Wordcrunchers? How about your blogs if you are a blogger like me?

In any case, I am also very visible in Facebook and in many other social sites. If you are my friend in Facebook, you would know that I speak of the truth here.

Facebook has become an impressive tool to promote contents and building traffic. Especially if you are new to the "online world", promoting and building links, you may find Facebook to be a big support.

I also use several other online tools to help me in "getting the word out" for my blog posts. They are all free, of course.

Some of these tools include:


And for a faster way in sharing your articles or contents, install the Shareaholic button in your browser, too. It's a very helpful tool in sharing anything to any social sites you have, such as Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, etc., etc.

That's how I do it. How about you, how do you get traffic to your blogs and/or other online contents?

      I always appreciate learning about sites where I can write or link. I use Facebook a lot. Also have used some other places, like Stumbleupon, Redgage, Twitter, and I also blog on Blogger. I don't like using Wordpress much either.

      @greeneryday, I've recall trying wizzley too but have decided not to use it. Don't they allow internal links only in their contents?
