How to Drive Tones of Traffic to Your New Blog and Boost SEO
What are the best ways to drive traffic to your new blog?
In this article I am going to share some method i have used to drive tones of traffic to my new blog of just 3 three months old. It has worked for me and i believe it will also work for anyone. So lets go straight to the point without wasting time.
I have some social aggregator sites, forums and social media networks i would like to share with you so you can take advantage of them as well.
Reddit is an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Registered members submit content to the site such as links, text posts, and images, which are then voted up or down by other members.
Create an account with reddit if you have not and join a subreddit that you can contribute to. Don't start promoting your blog immediately, yes you heard me. Contribute relevantly to the community either by commenting on other people's posts or submitting links from authority websites like: bbc, cnn, guardian, cnet, ect.. once users find your contribution interesting, they upvote it and you get Karma or point. Here is y advice: build let your karma reach atleast one thousand before you start submitting from your blog, at least 2 links a day. But promote other authority site more than your own. Here is a screenshot of my karma:
Voat is also works like reddit. so use the same pattern as you do on reddit.
Voat (pronounced voat as in goat) officially launched in April 2014 as a media aggregator website featuring user-posted content.
Voat initially started as a hobby project by a third year BSc student in Lund, Sweden. Due to the recent interest generated by the online community, this has evolved from hobby into full-fledged desire to create the website that will become the place where you can "have your say".
Aggregator refers to a web site or computer software that brings together a specific type of information from multiple online sources.
Users can submit any type of legal content, questions, videos and commentary. Voat's job is to amalgamate all of this into a logical universe of internet things, so you can quickly find what interests you.
3. news.ycombinator.com (Hacker News)
Hacker News is a social news website focusing on computer science and entrepreneurship. It is run by Paul Graham's investment fund and startup incubator, Y Combinator. In general, content that can be submitted is defined as "anything that gratifies one's intellectual curiosity".
If you have technology related articles, you can submit them to hacker news. this site also works like reddit and voat where you submit and users upvote. Don't submit more than 2 articles a day, and don't submit from you own blog first. Pick articles from tech blog sites like: cnet, the verge, tech radar, engadget ect.... one link from any of these sites then one from your own. Don't post every day.
Gab is an English-language social media website known for its far-right user base. The site has been widely described as a "safe haven" for extremists including neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the alt-right. The site was launched in 2017 and claimed to have almost 1,000,000 registered user accounts by July 2019.
Gab has so many sections on it platform called groups. Open an account with gab and join any group on gab related to the contents of your blog and start sharing your links.
Saidit is trying to create an environment that encourages thought-provoking discussion, like how reddit used to be 7+ years ago, when Aaron Swartz was still around.
Saidit has made several improvements to reddit's design. Saidit doesn't have upvote vs downvote, but instead two types of upvotes: An "Insightful" vote which has a lightbulb icon, and a "Fun" vote which is a laughing icon. You can vote both of them if it's both fun and insightful, and that will give it the most points and increase its ranking. This two-upvote system gets rid of upvote vs downvote wars, and people downvoting others to censor them.
So without wasting time, this site is another competitor of reddit and voat. Create an account with saidit and use the reddit pattern we've discussed earlier.
