4 Ridiculously Easy Ways to Enjoy Effortless Blog Traffic *

  1. Daniel Ray

    I can attest that social media buttons are huge! I now have posts that get shared via Facebook or Twitter 40-50 times per day. That is exposure that I cannot pay to get! People sharing on there own without me putting in much effort. I have often said, people want good stuff to share. Social media has trained us to click the share button. I shared this post on Twitter before I started typing this comment! Great post!

      Awww… Thanks Danny for sharing my post and for validating the content of my article. Speaking of sharing buttons, thank you for reblogging Scribblecroft’s post “6 Lessons I Learned…” I am featuring the post at my Weekly RoundUp on Thursday. Definitely an amazing article. I have met many new, wonderful bloggers thanks to your reblogs. Thanks for writing and doing what you do.

      Hi Hope,
      Thanks for the compliments! I have an Easy Button from Staples at school. When I thought of “Effortless” in the headline, it made sense to use the Easy button. Thanks for noticing. Thank you for writing.

    It took me awhile, but I finally have my FB and Google share buttons, thanks to you!

      Hi Melinda.
      You know how much I love to help, so thanks for writing and telling me. You’ll see how much those help in increasing readership.

      Hi Molly,
      Thank you so very much. I’m glad you enjoyed my post about the social sharing buttons.

    • Janice Wald

      Dear Molly,
      PS I tried to visit your blog, but I couldn’t find a link. If you leave it for me, I’d be happy to come by.

    Great tips, Janice. I would add that you put your Twitter ID in your twitter sharing button so you know who shares your posts and thank them for it.

    Hi Janice! Good stuff as always. And I have seen that “Click To Tweet” in your posts and wondered how to add it to my blog. Thank you! ~Kathy

    I’ve heard about click to tweet. Need to embed it into my blog posts.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Iryna,
      Once you get comfortable with embedding text, Click to Tweet is easy.

    Helpful post, particularly for any newbie bloggers. I’m not a newbie but I need to focus more on growing my blog and posting more etc. It’s always good to read posts on how to improve things.

    Forgot to say, I’m on blogger but keep thinking I need to move to WP because of its extra features

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Kate,
      I hate to appear biased here, but I would totally agree with you. WordPress.com is user friendly, you have so much support, they even have real-time help now if you need.

    HI Janice, more great tips, thanks. I don’t know if you noticed recently that WP changed the format on the reader and now many gravatar images are no longer displayed beside the blog title, including my own. Would you know how I can get my image to appear again? I’d be grateful for any tips

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Cat,
      Thank you for the kind words about my post. I am no longer on WP.com, so it is hard for me to make an observation about it. I would contact them. They even have help in real time now, so you won’t have to wait for someone to Email you back.

    Some great tips and advice, as a new blogger getting that new traffic is very important to show that what your writing about is important to the rest of the world as well.

    Love the Click to Tweet plugin — it is so easy to use, and results in the vast majority of my Twitter shares. I always wondered what “reblog” was all about. I am not on WP.com, so this explains why I have never seen the option. Visiting from #MidLifeLuv.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Wendy,
      Nice to meet you. I would have replied sooner, but I had Open House at school this week. I am a teacher.
      That’s why I love writing longer posts, there’s something valuable for everyone to comment on. I have to remind myself to use Click to Tweet more than I do. Thanks for clickiing my link over at MidLifeLuve.
