    What are the best white hat ways to draw traffic to your BLOGGER website? My mom has a very good blog going that she absolutely loves and it makes her happy. I feel really bad for her though, that she has around 15 good solid content posts, but no traffic what so ever, she had the blog for over a year and it has been approved for ad sense.

    I tried submitting some posts to Reddit and just today submitted to some RSS feeds to see how that goes.

    Please help me make my mom happy and help her drive traffic to her blog through white hat ways.

    All suggestions on how to drive quality traffic to BLOGGER specifically, will be greatly appreciated.

    I also have the same problem with you. I try to submit on Reddit, but I did not have any traffic from Reddit.
    In my opinion and my own experience, social media is the best source of traffic: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube...
    You can convert your articles into different types: images, videos, ebook... then share them on social media sites.

    Short term: using paid traffic, ex: adword, bing, fb ads ....
    Long term : Doing SEO , there are a ton of method here to follow, just use the search button

    Paid traffic is good for selling product, for just focus on adsense you better learn how to do SEO

    Searching the form is all said and done. The reason I asked this question is not so I get a "use the search button" reply. But to ask "specifically" what exactly is best for BLOGGER and what works best that people have tried. If you could point me in the right direction for a SEO guide that would be best in this field that would be great. & Thanks for your feedback. ;)

    Guest blogging. Search blogs that have high traffic and related to your niche. And offer guest post to other bloggers. Each guest post that contain a link toward to your blog. Make sure to the guest post content is original, unique, readable and useful so the other blogger will glad to accept it.

    Facebook is a great source to drive traffic. Try Pinterest too if the blog is about something that interests Ladies.

    It is nothing special with blogs on Blogger. Same as any other website. And 15 posts in a year... :rolleyes: Mmm... Some people write 5 posts a day and they don't have much traffic. If you want to help your mom it can be only one way - learn SEO.

    Hey there! Another way to drive some traffic to her blog is for her to leave comments on her favorite blogs. When you do this most blogs will have an option for her to put a link to her blog. This way when people read the comments they can click on the link to directly go to her blog. Also she will need to write at least one post a day while starting out. When people do visit the blog but only see a few blog posts a year, they will not come back. Readers like new and fresh posts all the time. Once she has a steady following she could cut down to maybe 5 times a week. If she truly wants to make money at blogging these are some simple steps that will help her get started. Also don't be shy, try to find some blogs that have a little more traffic than hers, but not insanely popular blogs, and ask them if she can guest post on their blog. Then they will leave a link to her blog, thus driving more traffic. Hope this helps.

    Here are some i hope which will help you gain ranking(white hat )
    Use keywords effectively and diversify your link texts...Make sure that regular guest blogging with quality links and content with quality images...make good internal like that will help a lot to drive traffic to your blog..Get links from real sites to build real domain authority.

    Blogging is all about making a personal connection with your reading and gaining their trust/loyalty. These people who read your mom's blog and like it will come back time and again. But, how do you get the readers to the blog in the first place? One very useful technique is to use forum marketing on related forums, to build a reputation in that niche. I'm not sure what her blog is about, but for sure there could be hundreds of possible blogs to market on. This would not be blatant spam, but building a reputation and 'friends' on the forum. It's better if she does this for herself rather than hiring someone as the people visiting her blog will expect to hear from and interact with her. The 'advertising' is usually done by signature line. This type of 'relationship building' is more subtle and takes more effort than Facebook ads but is likely to net real readers for her blog.

    I would find a service that offer you at least $0.001 which facebook, adwords and others don't do right now. If you find this please let me know.

    Increase the quantity with the quality posts/day. Make it 3-4 per day and you can also go for guest posting that will show the great result. With the single post you can find the others interest and attract the readers to post a comment in the blogs for the post. Give internal links in the popular posts among that will drive more traffic. Btw I appreciate you for your interest in making your mom happy. Good luck.:)

    I would also say guest blogging. Take some of her better posts and offer them up to other blogs in the same niche

    I think you also need to focus on social media sites as well!

    Why you focus only on Blogger, because your ultimate aim is to get more traffic! So divert yourself.

    Good Luck!

    blog commenting, guest blogging and social bookmarking are the great ways to get some good amount of traffic to your blog site on a regular basis.
