How To Get Instant Free Traffic To Your Blog

This is something I did to get traffic when my blog was about a month old that I don’t see too many others doing. Of course, before you ever start thinking about traffic you should have thought about a theme for your blog. What will make it different and stand out in a crowd? What will make people go to your site and want to keep coming back? What exactly is the purpose and what is your goal with the site?

It is best to figure that out right from the beginning, before you are several months in and it is too late. For instance, I decided my blog would be about work from home jobs. When you have your site up, you are then faced with that new challenge of getting traffic. I have found that one of the first things you need to do is register your blog with the social blogging sites MyBlogLog and BlogCatalog. It might take a day to get your blog approved and you should use that time to fill out all the info you can. Fill out your profile, put in a picture avatar, fill in all the tags (subjects your blog is about), and fill out your “about me” page.

Once your blog is approved get ready for some serious clicking. What you are going to do is join every community you can and especially add as many “contacts” or “friends” as you can. Friends and contacts are good and I will take as many as I can get. MyBlogLog will only allow you to add 15 new contacts a day and that will only take you 5 minutes. But that is 5 minutes you want to make sure you do each and every day! BlogCatalog is different and it will allow you to add as many friends as you like. I have added over 300 on occasion and only stopped when I got super tired of all the clicking.

How does this get your site traffic? Many of the people you add as friends will be curious to see who is adding them as a friend. They will click on your profile page and then through to your website. Not everyone will do this but I guarantee a fair percentage will. If you add 300 friends on BlogCatalog I will almost guarantee you will get 50 to 100 hits on your website within the next 24 hours. And it is all FREE! Now it may not be the most targeted traffic you will ever get but if you have a nice blog with a good hook, you will get some interest. When you are starting out you need exposure of any kind. Just keep adding friends and writing good content and you will be on your way!

Using these two services is a great way to get free traffic but it is temporary and only works as long as you keep adding people. Once you stop adding friends and contacts, you are faced with the difficulty of trying to get more traffic to your site on an ongoing basis. There are other ways to get traffic that are also free and even better than MyBlogLog. The Tireless Traffic Technique is the best way to get traffic to come to your website and it is much more permanent stream of traffic. With this technique, you can get a steady stream of free traffic that comes to your site day after day. And that is totally FREE traffic!

The Tireless Traffic Technique is a real cheap $7.00 ebook that you can download immediately and after reading it you may not need to try the “friends” and “contacts” trick. I know that I don’t do any more adding of friends as it is just too much trouble and I am getting traffic all the time anyway from what I learned in this ebook.

    You should save this move when you have a good post that will surely captivate the bloggers!

    I have almost 7,000 contacts on MyBlogLog. At first you could add as many as you wanted so I did 100 a day. Getting 15 contacts will only generate about 5 visits. Getting more community members will generate a better influx of traffic.

    Do sites like digg or stumble help?

    I do this all the time, it is a great way to get visitors and free traffic.

    Do you know what it takes to get accepted into Blog Catalog? I have applied with two different sites and they have rejected both of them. I think it is pretty dumb personally.

    Mike,
    I’m not sure as I was accepted right away. I never knew there was any special criteria.

    I will follow this post and try to post later on my results in my brand, new, tiny blog

    I believe I was accepted to BlogCatalog without any issues as well. Might want to contact them if they’re not giving you a reason.

    And to Pilates Class Girl, I think Stumble helps a lot. Most of the traffic I got when I started out came from there with very little work on my end on the contact building front. Haven’t had the same luck with Digg but I haven’t really messed around with it yet either.

    I was accepted to both BlogCatalog and MyBlogLog without issue too.

    Dayjobnuker, that is weird. I have applied with two different sites and been rejected with both of them.

    Guess which participant will give you the best return for your comment effort.
    Table of Link Values of participants
    Just a quick survey of how many links on each participants article page.
    It will eventually be an article but I thought you would like to see the table. I was amazed!

    There are free traffic sites really work if you know how to work them. There are lots of places online that offer free advertising and traffic services for anyone who has a website.

    Wow, thanks. I have never heard of either site so I will be busy for awhile getting profiles set up and adding friends. I have been active on some other social networks, but these ones seem specific to bloggin. Thanks for the info.

    Bye the way I found your site through Courtney Tuttles writing project. Thought you might want to know that.

    “Now it may not be the most targeted traffic you will ever get but if you have a nice blog with a good hook, you will get some interest.”

    It doesn’t have to be non-targeted traffic, at least on MyBlogLog (I can’t say a thing about BlogCatalog because I’m not a member… yet). Simply visit and add people who are members of communities that are related to the overall theme of your blog. 😉

    Karen Zara on October 21st, 2007

    True Karen. But I added almost anyone and everyone for a long time. Only recently have I started doing what you just said and targeted certain communities.

    Tried it, it works! Was struggling initially on how to get traffic to my blog and then I discovered blogcatalog. I am beginning to see an increase in traffic.

    giftcardblogger on March 24th, 2008

    I would agree that MyBlogLog is a good thing. I’ve been using it for the last 18 months or so. I’m sure my traffic would be even higher if I was a hot chick, or if I’d put a pic of a hot chick on my profile like so many others do (who aren’t hot chicks).

    In answer to the earlier question, Digg and Stumble are great, but neither one tends to convert well for ad clicks, etc.

    Columbus on June 11th, 2008

    I agree with you fully on this, these two social blog networks are a must for any newbies or new blogs out there… And they always continue to give traffic.. 🙂
