There are many of us that have blogs but are having a hard time driving traffic to them. If this is you, then you might want to check out blogging sites that will help you drive traffic to your blogs with a little effort on your part. Let’s look at the solution of what you can do…
“There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others firsts; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
You know what I like about blogging? You can really brand yourself quite well with this strategy. Outside of social media, you can actually get to know people within your niche.
I’ve read in blog that blogging is really a social business. Even though you have a business, you and your readers can really interact with each other through your comments and if they subscribe to your blog.
With this interaction you can really bond with your readers. And if they happen to be serious bloggers in your niche, not only will you be able to create a strong bond, but also you can leverage each other, sharing each other’s content.
With this type of connection, you can most definitely guarantee that you will start to get a lot of traffic. Especially if they’re getting a lot of traffic themselves. And you know what that means? Lead generation.
But here’s a question that a lot of bloggers ask whether they’re beginners or have been blogging for quite a while:
Where do you find these types of bloggers in your niche to create a community to help each other out as far as leverage?
Outside of social media, there are three sites I like to use in order to generate traffic and leads, as well as meet other great bloggers within my niche. They are Triberr.com, Bloggers.com, and Topsy.com
When it comes to your home business, now days, blogging really helps to brand you. We all know that people buy from people, and this is a great way for others to really get to know, like and trust you.
At the same time, you can learn from others as well as generate traffic via other’s blog posts. The comment section has really helped me. If other bloggers have the commentluv plugin, I can leave a comment and it will post my last blog post for others to check out. Also I can read blog posts from others who have commented.
But before we get to that point, lets talk about the 3 blogging sites. With these through you can find blogs with some authority. And if you comment enough on them, these bloggers will eventually take notice of you and see what you’re all about. If you have the same interest as them, they’ll start sharing your blog posts. Let’s look at these almight 3 blogging sites that I use:
When it comes to blogging, this is a great site for you to not only meet other bloggers who have home businesses, but also it’s a great place for your blog posts to get syndicated. This site also have tribal groups like you would see in facebook where you can build a sense of community and build relationships within these groups.
What I like about this site is that not only can you include what interest that you have (affiliate marketing, network marketing, blogging, etc.), but also you can do a search for people within your niche. This makes it more convenient for you to generate traffic of people who already have an interest in what do instead of using tedious hit and miss.
This site is so far my favorite. When it comes to blogging, you want to find people that have a big influence either with traffic, comments or both. Once you find these types of bloggers, you can definitely guarantee a lot of traffic coming your way. With Topsy you can do a search for a specific interest. Once you find a list of people, you can then redefine the search even further by clicking on who has the most influence. The search is redefine and gives you a list of influencers. You can then check out the blogs that really resonates with you and once you build a great connection, they will start syndicating your posts.
Now It’s Your Turn!
These are great sites, especially if your just starting to blog. For those of you that have been blogging for a while, do you use any of these sites? Are there other sites that you recommend? Please share your comments below and share this post with your friends. I look forward to reading them!
