This is one of the most effective ways to increase your blog awareness on the internet and also one of the top traffic sources. Only creating high quality content is not enough.

When interested people will find your content, they will visit your site and if will find it interesting, they might share your articles too. Just think how much awareness you will get from this. By using the power of social media you can directly target your audience and in this way your half of the job is completed. As long as you’re serious about your blog and want to continue this as your business, you can’t ignore the power of social media.

In my case as soon as I publish a post on my blog, the very first thing that I do is to share on the social media. But here you should take care of the timing. You should share your blog post in the timing when most of the people are active. Suppose you are added in a couple of groups on facebook. In one group most of the people are from US and UK. So you’ve to share your post in their time and if in other major contributor are from Asian sub-continent, you have to take care of their timings too. By this way you can manage to engage more and more people to your blog post.

I’m sure you must have account with top social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. These 3 are the major networking sites available today. Just you’ve to use these platforms in effective manner. Share your blog posts on these sites and if you think your post is too good even you can use the social advertisements to promote on large scale.

Note: Social advertisement is cheaper than the CPC advertisement programs and you can build many more audience then the CPC. So if you’re ready to spend little money, you should definitely try this source.

2. Understand the power of Guest blogging


Guest Blogging is the key behind the success of any blogger- tricksroad
I’m not sure why I’ve kept this at second place. I should have kept this at the top but no matter at which place it is here, guest blogging has a great importance. Guest posting is the best way to increase the popularity of yourself and your blog. Just you’ve to utilize this method on the effective way. I would suggest you to plan for at least one guest post per month. By this way in a year you’ll manage to have 12 guest posts and I’m sure by using this method you are going to get the maximum exposure in the blogging community. Just you’ve to take care of few points for guest blogging-
.
  • Choose a famous blog for guest posting
  • Write unique and lengthy content
  • Emphasize on Quality rather than Quantity
  • Introduce yourself in a good and efficient manner with photograph
  • Respond to each comments on the guest blogs and try to build relationship with the readers
  • Make good repo with the blog owner where you’ve done guest posting for future. This will help you to increase the links of your blog.
Not all the blogs offers guest blogging but still you can find a lot of blog who do offer including my blog too. So before doing guest blogging, email to the owner of the blog about your topic and little details about it. I’m sure, must of the time you’ll receive positive response. And then if your article is good you can ask for at least a link back to your blog. So by this way you can increase backlinks too.

But those time gone when guest posting were done mainly for backlinks. Almost all the major search engine now penalizes those blogs which tries to do these stuffs. So to avoid such circumstances you should mainly focus on creating awareness about your blog and this way you’ll get lots of traffic. If you’re getting links also, try to use nofollow attribute. By this way you will never get caught by Google and you will manage to increase your blog traffic as well as you’ll get maximum exposure also.

3. Use Blogger Outreach Campaigns


How to do blogger outreach campaigns- tricksroad
Blogger outreach is also one of the best ways to increase blog popularity. It is actually the necessity to remain in the field and for getting maximum exposure. Many blogger do outreach campaigns just to increase links but you should not do this. You should do this campaign just to build the relationship. Once you’ll get success in building good relationship with your fellow bloggers, links and all will come automatically.

Here relationship basically means, creating a channel and connection with other bloggers. You may think your primary goal is to get links and shares but not. Your primary goal should be to tell them that YOU ARE HERE. If you’ll manage to tell this, believe me you are going to get lots of exposure and hence hundreds or even thousands of traffic to your blog.

How to start an outreach campaigns

What you’ve to do is email few bloggers from your niche and appreciate their work and let them know how great content they have written and ask for the advice for the improvement of your blog. Believe me first they will visit your blog and will read your articles. Later you’ll find a reply with the appreciation about your blog posts.

The second thing that you’ve to do is to email them again with the link of few of your best article and ask for the share on social sites. Never ask for the links. If they’ll like your article, they’ll never mind to share or at least tweet you. Just think if you’re sending only 5 emails a day and getting only 2 shares, how much exposure and traffic you’ll manage to get. Most importantly all the visitors will be your targeted users and so chance of converting them into subscribers will be far more. I believe you’re already doing these campaigns. If not, please start doing this and you’ll see the outcome very soon.

Wrapping it up!


These were the best top 3 ways to increase the blog’s exposure as well as traffic for your blog easily. Also by using these methods you’ll get far more traffic and promotion then the backlinks. So start trying these methods, if you’re not doing. Or if you’re already doing this, let me know your experience with these.
