Hello, I am new here. Suppose you would be hired by some general news portal (like a New York Times competitor) to increase the traffic to the articles they publish, and you would be paid for the number of visitors you bring. What methods would you try first? The constraints are: 1) black-hat is generally allowed, but it must not lead to the website being banned from Google or generally to hurt the brand image by being too spamy. 2) normally you can't publish articles there, the articles are being published by journalists 3) you can freely pick any articles you want, new or old ones. (There are basically all categories, hard news, life, celebs, autos, food, tech...). I am just starting this, and tried to add links to discussions under articles on blogs and news portals, and also tried twitter, but the traffic is not much. Any help would be appreciated.
