    Hello!

    I've started a personal blog, where I'm writing all about my life, but I want to stay there anonymous, so I obviously can't share it with my friends on facebook etc.
    I think my blog is interesting and many teenage people may like and follow it.

    How can I make lots of people to visit my blog, staying anonymous?

    Cheers
    mikollek

    Why don't you just create a pen name for yourself and then create a FB page, pinterest, tumblr, etc. as that author.

    I've created a pen name that makes me a #1 at google search, I've created a FB page, but how do I get followers this way? It's for the people that have already viisted my blog right?

    You just need to define in what niche your blog belongs. Go from there.

    There's plenty of ways to gain traffic, you just need to think hard which way will suit you the most.

    Here's a couple of ideas:

    - Join a couple of Facebook groups related to your niche (and by couple I mean 50 :cool:), interact with members, tell them about your blog, spread the word.

    - Follow people on Twitter that will be interested in your niche, build up a solid account, start tweeting your posts among other things. Do the same on other social media channels (Pinterest, Google +, etc.).

    - Join forums related to your niche (do the same as with Facebook Groups)

    - Guest post on other blogs, it will be harder though, might now allow your pen name

    Social networks are the best place to gain followers, if you have some very interesting, maybe shocking to share, try reddit too or 9gag. I saw some posts on 9gag about a teenager that was kicked out of his own house by their parents and every single post hit the hot page.

    On my personal blog and every other website on the Internet, I use an alias that I plan on possibly legally changing my name to eventually to remain "anonymous" (although I don't do this to deceive people, I do it to avoid many relatives with a history of domestic violence).

    If you want traffic from the teenage crowd, go to where the teens hang out; post on Reddit, Facebook, and other social media websites. Use that pen name that you're ranking for on every social site you're on and make yourself interesting. Eventually, people who find you interesting will look you up by that name in Google.

    If you have a good budget; try FB ads!
    If you don't have enough $$...drive traffic from YouTube, FB fan page, Instagram and other social media sites !

    Thanks for all the advices guys, the thing is, I can't for example join FB groups, since as a page it's not possible. And I want to stay anonymous so I can't join myself.
    Another thing is the blog is in Polish, so I want to get Polish teenage visitors.
    Any other ideas how I may achieve that?

    Can you think at least 30 seconds before making conclusions?

    I'm not trying to be rude, but you can figure these stuff out by yourself. I mean, for ex. you can always make another FB account with fake name, than join the groups... don't you think?

    Well, I've actually figured it out exactly the way you wrote it.
    It's still hard to find groups for personal-blogs.

    Anyway thanks for the reply.

    Join forums and use a signature link or link to your blog. This is a great way to get your blog out there yet still be not known.

    Here's a tip:

    Research other personal blogs that are already successful or have some kind of results (traffic, social media followers, etc).

    Try and figure out what they do or last resort - ask them.

    Try to use Alias and it will work for you.

    PS : Do not forget to hide domain privacy, one may notice from that too :)

    Few Interested Geeks go for that part as well.

    The advice given above works, do use pen name, use fake name so that you can use social marketing in FB and similar networks. You can join of interest (to your niche blog) groups and friend members in same and contribute to their content. You want to become an "expert" above your subject matter, post relevant unique content on your site and keep looking for similar related blogs that you can join on comment on and have users see your profile and or signature with link back to your of interest blog. To make this work you may need to get link juice by getting lots of links back to your blog using white hat SEO.

    Join social media groups and actively post in them. Do the same thing for forums. Try to arrange post exchanges or guest posts with other authors in your niche. You slowly need to build a social circle, and it will expand when you do that

    Get to Know your target audience and search for the top blogging articles and see what the author of the blogs are doing to keep their blog on top of the visitor's viewlist then do exactly what they are doing to generate more visitors on your blog and If you want to remain anonymous then as suggest by others go for a pen name, many famous authors do that to hide their identity

    why you still wanna be anonymous.
    if you afraid of anyone?
    if you share your pics also?
    and pet name will not do the trick if you share your real pics bec images are big proof of identity than a real or pen name.:)
    think of it your self .

    Treat it like any other site - define your niche, define your target audience and then work out where you can interact with them and then post there under your pen name and drive traffic to your blog in that way.

    Create an identity for yourself according to the content of blog you want to share. By creating identity , it means displaying a personality with name and personal details or quotes that goes well with you and attract people, add pictures that will represent a theme, along with being appealing aesthetically and visually. With this done, add the right kind of tag words that will attract the right kind of people.

    You can make page on face book to promote your blogs or you can join different groups of your related topic and post your blog link there.
