    Sup everyone. Long-time lurker, first time actually trying anything out. I started a blog about a month ago and I'm looking into making good, genuine content along with well, making some money on the side. I've added a few articles, I don't really have a specific niche. I'll be working with a collaborator down the line...

    What I have going for me: I have a Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, google+, and Youtube. I've put my blog on stumbleupon and I utilize google analytics keywords. On average I get 3-4 views a day now. I use twitterfeed to automatically post to twitter and facebook. YouTube posts to Google+ for me.

    My problem: I guess my question is, what can I do to increase traffic to my blog (called "SpriteAndDeb" for now)? Any suggestions any pro's don't mind sharing with me?

    Thanks for reading.

    Assuming you're just looking at free ways to drive traffic? There is literally a ton of detailed info on this forum. The most common ways would be social media, you have your accounts but how are you sharing your content? Do you have a good twitter following? Maybe look into ways of increasing and engaging with your twitter following.

    Best way to get traffic from Facebook is with facebook ads but it costs. If there are active groups related to your niche then you could share your related content there, but make sure they are not just full of spam otherwise its a complete waste of time. Get a fan page going and build a fan base then promote posts.

    Create decent videos and upload to youtube, again a ton of info on how to rank youtube vids can be found on here. Put your link in your description and a call to action in your vid.

    Forum signatures, blog commenting, guest blogging also good ways of driving traffic to your blog/site.
