79 of the Most Effective Ways to Get Free Blog Traffic

By: | February 20, 2016 | Tags: , , , , ,

Bloggers can get free blog traffic2.73 million blog posts are published daily.

Trying to win traffic to your posts amidst all that competition can seem daunting.

However, there are many ways to get free blog traffic that consistently work to bring you new visitors.

This post offers 79 of them.

Blog Promotion is a free form of marketing. This is the main way bloggers like to get traffic to their blogs – all it takes is your time but no money required.

According to blogging guru Neil Patel, you should promote 70% of the time, and create new content 30% of the time. That means you need many places to promote to.

Consider these comments from a reader

I fell into the blogosphere, backside first, which made the landing somewhat less painful. When I looked around, it was as if I had landed in a foreign country with a language that I could not make head or tail of. Linky parties? Follow to Follow? Blog Love? Bloglovin’? Throwback Thursday? Sharing on Pinterest boards?

You have to understand, I thought Pinterest was wonderful, but I used it exclusively to pin interior decorating pictures… Round here, I am a pioneer in that respect, most of my friends here have never even heard of Pinterest…When I came to my first “How to create re-pinnable pins” and “How to use Pinterest to increase traffic to your blog,” I was flummoxed.

And Twitter. Until now, I thought Twitter is a waste of time and space. Who can manage to say anything useful in 140 characters?  Only one of my friends have ever heard about Twitter and that is because she is a website designer that works from home.

StumbleUpon? Gave up on that years ago, takes forever for a new page to load round here. As for LinkedIn, I definitely do not want anyone to offer me… posts on LinkedIn anymore, reminding me that due to my eye problems I can no longer work as a doctor, so I have closed my account. The extent of my ignorance about anything to do with blogging was somewhat depressing.

[bctt tweet=”There is no need to be depressed! There are many possible ways to get traffic to your blog.”]

79 Ways to Get Free Blog Traffic

  1. Ask your readers to share your articles in your Call to Action at the end of your post.
  2. Backlinks By linking to relevant articles, you get traffic to old posts. This is especially helpful for new readers who may not have read them yet.
  3. BizSugar lets you leave relevant links. Productivity and technology are two of the site’s threads. The site is also fun to use due to the sugar theme.
  4. Blog Commenting is a great way to draw attention to yourself and your blog. I commented on Jon Morrow’s blog. Someone putting together an expert interview saw my comment and invited me to be on the panel since the interview was on the topic I commented on. In addition to making new connections, my social media presence is enhanced, and I have additional material for my “About” page. You never know where a comment will lead. Never pass up an opportunity to make an insightful comment on a post.
  5. Blogger Outreach involves contacting a blogger and offering your link or infographic. It could supplement their article. The link to your site, should they accept the offer, will boost your SEO rankings and make you more visible in search engines.
  6. Blog Shares are like linky parties. Instead of linking a post, you link your blog URL.

    This is a great list of tips to direct and attract viewers to blogs, Janice. I suppose each method might work better than other methods – it depends on who we are trying to reach and how we want to reach our target audience.

    I use Facebook and Twitter to push my posts out there, and I like that on Facebook, you can even publicise your posts for a fee. As for writing controversial posts, that is a good suggestion. But rarely do I get the inspiration to write controversial posts 😀

    • Janice Wald | at 3:59 pm

      Hi Mabel,
      Thanks for writing me yesterday. I am glad you liked the tips. I agree they each have varying degrees of effectiveness depending on the blogging niche, etc. That’s why I ended with the more we do, the better our page views will be.
      Have you tried paying for Facebook ads? Would you recommend it? I am trying to avoid spending money that way.
      Regarding controversial posts. The few times I caused controversies without meaning to, page views really were terrific. ( I have never meant to cause a controversery =) ).

        I have mixed results from paying for Facebook ads. I think it does depend on how well you know who you want to reach, and how you target your ads and post. I rarely pay for ads on Facebook these days to promote my blog. Like you, I want to avoid spending money. If your content speaks for itself, then it speaks for itself 🙂

    • Julie Syl Pit Stop Crew | at 3:15 pm

      Hey I agree with you Mabel. This is a monster post of a list.

      What I do is I pick 2 Platforms every year and Focus on them like a dog over a bone. Until I master, get results teach others how to 🙂

      Awesome share Janice. Thanks for putting out such value!

    Hi Janice and Happy Saturday!

    I’m glad you prepared this list of fabulous options to generate traffic. Where were you 5 years ago? I see so many bloggers, veteran and new, almost giving up because they aren’t getting traffic to their sites. Just this morning in a FB group, a young lady was talking about giving up. I offered a few suggestions, commenting on others, networking, guest and contributing posts, and even invited her to guest on my lifestyle blog.

    I’ve save this to my feed so I can refer back to it as well as, refer it out to others as needed. Thanks for sharing this! Have a great weekend!

      HI Brenda,
      First of all, thank you so much for your kind words. They really meant a lot when I read them yesterday.
      Second, you’ve heard of VETERAN bloggers ready to quit out of frustration? I heard new bloggers give up after nine months. I hadn’t heard veterans quit. By all means, give them my list.
      Reading how you tried to help the frustrated blogger– very kind of you.
      Thanks so much for your support, your compliments, and for sharing my work.

I know some bloggers who see them more like a chain letter and others think they’re amazing. I would appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks!

      Hi Lloyd,
      I absolutely love Flipboard. I put my 79 tips article on Flipboard this morning, and I had a record-breaking day regarding referral traffic coming over from Flipboard. Exciting!
      It sounds like you are finding my articles helpful. I am so glad. I would love to encourage you to subscribe since I post articles like these all the time.
      I am intrigued by what you wrote– traffic reports. I am definitely interested in how techniques pan out for you. I am actually posting on how a little-known SEO technique worked wonders for me and a few others in about two hours. I am on my way to your site.

    Thanks for posting this, it’s really helpful. I remember when looking for answers on ‘tagging’ on google and wordpress, the max should be no more than 13 preferably with one word pertaining to your article. I’ve noticed on some blogger’s tags, they will have 3 or 4 words within one tag, and 20 some odd tags. I will be cutting mine down to

    I started posting some posts from my blog, as well as, some of my other writings to an additional site called https://niume.com. I set it up last week and have had more views in one day on two posts than I had in my regular blog! There is lots of variety. If I may show you mine: https://niume.com/pages/profile/?userID=25982


  9. Richard Schulte | at 6:17 am

    For whatever it is worth… My own suggestion for bloggers who want to sell something or reach a specific audience. Spend 100% of your time creating original content. The creators of excellent, deep, original content are the ones who get by far the most traffic from Google. Those who create specific, deep, original, well-written content are kings of the internet–by design. Google honors the originators. Google honors and rewards the authorities. Because Google is where people go to find a specific thing. Social media is great for gaining general traffic, but much of that traffic is random, transient and non-directed–people seeking distraction or general social connection, not a specific interest or search. Seeking some sort of transaction? Google searches result in far more conversions than social media meanderings.

    • Janice Wald | at 10:46 pm

      Interesting. I have found the opposite to be true. It was only when I switched to reducing my tags, and my search engine traffic went up that I started getting conversions from search engine traffic. Normally, it’s been through Facebook, my networking, and reblogs of my articles. I like to think I have strong content. I hope so. People tell me I do. Yet, as I indicated in my “Secret Tip” article, all last year my search engine traffic was low.
      Janice Wald recently posted…Inspire Me Monday Linky Party #70My Profile

      • Richard Schulte | at 4:39 am

        Those reblogs are the result of good content. Google sees such links as votes of confidence. More backlinks generally cause one’s blog or website to rise in Google search results, which leads to more traffic from people searching for what you’ve got. Keep in mind, you blog about blogging, so most bloggers (and a significant fraction of people who follow social media) might be interested in your internet tips. So in your case social media generally is very important. For a blogger like myself (who writes about one city) a very large number of people following social media have little or no specific interest in my subject matter. So many quickly move on to the next thing. Followers who have a special interest in my city I treasure. They are my blog’s evangelists. And many or most initially arrive to my blog via a Google search.

    Wonderful resource indeed where you summed up all the possible tools and sources that could bring traffic to one’s blog; and the most amazing thing is they all are free.

    The very first sentence of this post could jerk one’s nerve if he won’t go ahead to read the full post. If millions of the posts are being published daily then there must be no upper limit of ways and means for bringing traffic to one’s blog.

    Thanks a lot for sharing such detailed and comprehensive post on boosting blog traffic.

        Just an addendum Janice – I did open a Flipboard account in February and it was easy to just add my posts each time. THEN at the beginning of July something weird happened and it has just taken off – I have had thousands of views come from there each week for the last few weeks – it has been amazing! Thanks again for inspiring me to set it up 🙂

    Hello again Janice,
    Because of you (I am saying that in a good way) I now have a pinterest account I am slowly figuring out and a stumble upon account (as of today) that I have no idea what to do with 🙂
    I really like your list from this post, I can only imagine I will be spending some quality time here.
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us all

  15. Lori | at 9:25 am

    Thanks a million, keep up the good work.

    These are all awesome tips Janice, I would certainly like to join your pinterest group board, but for some reason, Pinterest confuses me. Is it that I am making it harder than it actually is?

  19. Ahfaz Ahmed | at 10:02 pm

    Great tips Janice!

    I saw you mentioned JustRetweet.

    I’ve been using that tool a lot but didn’t see any good results. It surely does get your content shared a different audience but that doesn’t convert into traffic.

    Just wanted to let you know about my experience with JustRetweet.

    Your blog looks great. Discovered it from Inbound.

    Gotta scan and read your blog now. 😉

      I am relatively new to Instagram but it’s a New Year’s Resolution to be more active there =).
      I’m glad you get traffic from there. Thanks for writing to let us know it’s possible.
      Again forgive my delayed response.

    I read this some time back and I had to come back and check the list. Most of these tips are still relevant to SEO to date.
    Your posts are always informative. Thank you!

      How kind, Grace. Thank you. Bookmarking was a great idea. Yes, many of these ideas (most?) are still relevant. Thanks for writing to tell me. I keep going back and forth about writing a new monster list of promotion methods.

    Resourceful information! According to Neil Patel, roughly, it takes 90 days to see referral traffic to your blog through back-links, guest posts, and blog commenting. It is correct because I am following his tips from the past month, and there is a positive impact. Another strategy is to use SEO YOAST plugin that WordPress offers is the best solution to optimize the on-page of your blog for free.

      Hi Faizan,
      I appreciate you calling my 79 tips for how to get blog traffic “resourceful.” I am also a reader of Neil Patel.
      May I ask a question since I’m also interested in improving my SEO?
      You wrote Patel says it takes roughly 90 days to see impact but you wrote you’re already seeing a difference in 30 days. Is this because 90 days is just a rough estimate?
      I used to use Yoast but I find I prefer Rank Math.
      Thanks for commenting.
