Blog Traffic: 5 Amazing Ways To Skyrocket Traffic To Your Blog

Blog traffic is one of the major problems many bloggers face in their blogging journey.   In fact, the truth in the online world is that traffic is essential to any online business;  ultimately it is traffic that brings in people that buy.

In this post, I will be sharing about 5 ways you can significantly increase your website traffic.


Blog Traffic Five Amazing Best Way To Promote 

1. Blogging And Commenting

I just began to realize the power of blog commenting.

Blog commenting is a powerful way to get traffic to your website especially if done wisely and on a large scale.

One major thing about blog commenting is that it also helps you build a great brand when people begin to see your comments on others page.  Not only that in the long run it also helps you to develop a good relationship with well-known bloggers.

It is very important to make use of avatars when you post comments on others pages.  Especially when you try to get Traffic From StumbleUpon to your blog through blog commenting.  

Blog commenting is a powerful way to get traffic to your website Click To Tweet

Our avatar pictures show our real identity to the readers and that will help people take note of you when they begin to see your comments along with your real face.  

If your real face is not showing along with your comments, there are every chance to get that comment into the spam folder or most of the time when the blog owner approve the comments if your face is not showing along it may count as spam comment and ultimately that land in the spam folder. Blog Traffic

So make sure your real identity is revealed when you post comments.  

Here is a simple tutorial in which the Guest Author Chery Schmidt shows us how to include an avatar picture along with your comments.  Adding Your Picture To WordPress Blog Comments.

Being the first person to comment also helps you to get the good attention of the visitors.  Generally, people likely to visit the websites of few of the first commenters and they rarely visit the rest.

When commenting to get traffic, quality is better than quantity because a lot of bloggers will delete your comment if you write generic comments and readers tend to click on valuable comments more than any other comments because they believe someone with this type of great comment will also have something similar on his blog.

2. Blog Traffic And Guest Posting

7 of the top ten referrers in my analytics data are from my guest posts and all of them sent me over 150 unique visitors. Guest posting is really effective and the power of a guest post should never be underestimated.

One thing I have come to notice with guest posts is that people prefer quality over quantity; if your guest post is a great one then you will get more visitors from it than just writing anything.

Guest Posting


Many people tend to write just any guest post because they believe since the blog is not theirs then their best post should be on their blog, this is not supposed to be because of several reasons.

One major advantage of submitting quality guest posts is that it helps you build a relationship with the blogger and his readers but if you just write anything there is a probability of the blogger declining your post, and if he doesn’t his readers will not visit your blog.

The better your guest post, the better your result.

3. Blogging Communities

This is one underutilized Blog traffic generation strategy many bloggers don’t use, many bloggers tend to give excuses that they are busy, If you are busy then you might want to be submitting your guest posts to blogging communities every weekend.

Blogging Community

Blog Engage and  StumpleUpon are few of the blog communities I am involved in.  These two networks have sent me hundreds of visitors over time. 

One major thing to consider when trying to get the best from blogging communities is that you have to have high-quality posts and you also have to build the relationship because people tend to vote up people they know and if you have a high-quality post people will be more inclined to visit your blog.

4.  Forum Marketing

There was a time I signed up to the warrior forums and with only 50 posts I had already gotten over 70 visitors to my blog, I didn’t post a link to my blog in my posts, it was in the signature.

Forum Marketing

You can get great results from forum marketing if it is done properly, one great thing to consider when trying to market your blog through forums is that it is very important to try as much as possible to help others and not just spam people for your benefit.

If your aim is to go to forums to go and spam then within a short period of time you will be banned but if you focus on helping as many people as possible the end result will be you will have a good and long lasting stand in the forum.  

Having more friends and building a stronger relationship with fellow members will increase Blog traffic and authority.

Some great forums to get started with are the Warrior Forum and Digitalpoint Forum.

You can get great results from forum marketing if it is done properly. Says Muhammad Tabish at Philipscom Click To Tweet

5. Mailing List

I wouldn’t have put this on this list but it is also a very effective way to getting traffic to your blog. I was checking my overall stats today and I discovered that my mailing list has sent me hundreds of visitors, this is a good number because I only sent my posts to them a few times.

Mailing list

One of the major benefits of a Bulk Email list is the instant result it provides, people tend to respond faster because they are closer to their email than any other thing.

I have also observed emails I sent and I discovered that your titles matter, I have had sent emails have as low as 15% open rate and I have also had emails have over 35% open rate but what matters most is the title. If you have a cool and attractive title then you will get more results than having generic titles.

Getting traffic to blogs used to be a difficult task and I started noticing a difference over time. It is the tips in this post that is helping me get thousands of visitors to my 3 months old blog every week, use them to your advantage and you will be amazed at how they work.

It is also important to know that getting Blog traffic takes time and requires constant effort, if you are dedicated to making the effective use of the above tips then in no time you will be getting a lot of Boost blog traffic on autopilot.

I would like to hear from Philipscom readers the other ways you are using to get traffic to your pages.  Please share your tips if any in the comment box, that will be much appreciated.

  5. Tabish,

    Just got a chance to read your amazing post after reaching this page via your FB post.

    I guess this is after a long time you shared your own post on your Facebook profile. Is not it? :p

    Your post is fantastic! Every beginner should read your post to obtain the tips which they can use to get their initial visits.

    Forum Marketing is a good way but some buddies do it in a wrong way. Due to which, forum owners/users have to face the issues of getting spammed threads. It is advised to everyone to do the things in the natural way ;)

    Thanks Tabish for the awesome post. Just loved it.

    @Philip, This is my first comment on your blog. Looks like you have a lot of interested stuff here :D

      Yes, you are completely right about sharing a post on my Facebook profile.


      Indeed, Forum Marketing is an incredible technique to get extra success in the blogging and marketing but due to lack of manner of knowledge newbies practice it in a wrong way which results in a sad ban!

      Honestly, when I was new to the blogging industry I also did few mistake like this but after banned from one popular forum I released that this is not a right method to do this and I learned all necessary stuff for forum marketing from zero

    I totally agree about using StumbleUpon. I once added my resources page there and got 1500 views the next day.

    The only danger with getting such massive amounts to your blog in one day is that there is a possibility of crashing your blog. Your host might not be able to handle such requests, so make sure you have a great web host! :)

      You told a very interesting and as well as funny thing here that if the blogger using shared hosting there is high chance of getting server crashed due to a massive amount of blog traffic from massive in one day from StumbleUpon.

  8. We’ve had great results from StumbleUpon in the past, but your post has reminded me that we need to give it some more love!

  9. Hey Tabish,

    Some people have so much success with their content marketing strategies that they have hundreds of thousands of readers. Great content is a big part of the equation but the other, often overlooked area of content marketing is content promotion. Commenting on other relevant blogs is a great way to build relationships with top bloggers within your niche. We can get some referral traffic from social media, guest blogging and blog commenting. But if we want some good referral traffic, we should join blogging communities.

    Blogging Communities helps us to promote our blog without much effort. Where we can meet and interact with other bloggers, engage and drive a good amount of traffic to our blogs. Since blogging community members are real bloggers, we can share our thoughts and ideas with them. Blogging communities not only helps you to drive traffic to blog, it’ll also help us to make new connections with other bloggers. Eventually, thanks for sharing your wonderful thought with us.

    With best wishes,

  14. Now a days getting traffic to blog is what everyone want but only few of them follow right approach. Guest posting is one of the best way to drive traffic to your blog. Once you start getting traffic then it’s very important to have them for long term by collecting their email id so that when you publish new content you send them alert about new post.

  18. Hi Muhammad,

    It was a pleasure to read your article. I do agree with you on all the points that you have mentioned. Blog commenting is indeed a very good way to drive traffic to our website. (I generally prefer the article which does not have any comment. As per my experience, if you are the first one to comment on any article, chances are high that you will get good traffic from that article.)

    Also, the mailing list is a good way to attract traffic. Earlier, I was using pop over subscriber form only. But now, I have also started using embedded subscriber form to let people subscribe to my blog after reading article too. It has helped me getting many new subscribers.

    Thanks for sharing this article. Keep up the good work!

    Looking forward to reading more article from you.

    Great article! I believe that the communities and Email lists play a very pivotal role in generating huge amount of traffic. When you have a great community or circle of bloggers then you can effectively skyrocket your blog traffic with referrals.

    January 11, 2017
    • Indeed, those are very important. Communities can play an important role in this aspect. And of course, email list too is very important.
      And that is what majority of bloggers first select email list method to get more conversions.
      Thanks a lot for your response.
      Good day.

  20. I know about most of these strategies but blog commenting is a new information to me. Now I think it’s more powerful than others as we need lesser amount of time to comment. At the same time, we will get more knowledge from reading the posts.

    Hi Guys,

    So its clear that these are 5 excellent way to skyrocket a blog – no one explains the ACTUAL difficulty to do it. For example, I have an expectation of 10 high quality link backs DA 30-40 / PA: 60-70. So obviously comment spamming is out since 99% have no follows – reaching out to the blogger – he has no real incentive to work with you because “what is it in for him?” – he knows that you are doing nothing more than working for a link. Other than creating a and have hundreds of articles spinned with a link to their site – is 10 links from a high quality DA realistic per month?

    I work 40 hours per MONTH to achieve 10 link backs.

The added advantage is that since you visit most of the blogs and started reading articles they have published, it helps in increasing the knowledge and realize what works and what doesn’t.
