Okay guys. I have done the search but I couldn't come up with a topic to discuss this. I am one of those that believe in original content so I have writers write for me. However, as many of you know, posting great content is just NOT GOOD ENOUGH to drive traffic to the blog. I was reading online and I came across postings that recommend steps like the following after posting a new blog post: The WHITEHAT WAY of driving traffic (will come eventually but will take months if not years) 1) Keyword optimize your post - yes but how is this going really help drive the traffic immediately to your site? 2) Syndicate your content - Is RSS feed enough? 3) Shorten Your URL - If only sharing on social platforms like twitter, etc. How will this help if you don't have a huge social network to share your articles with? 4) Update Your status on social networks with new blog post - okay what if my social network is small? 5) Social Bookmark - again what if my social network is small? 6) Comment on related blogs - okay fine but it takes time and lots of time. 7) Reach out to other bloggers - okay yes but it is not going to happen right away.. Now Let me ask you, what is the BLACKHAT WAY? How do you drive traffic to your new blog postings? I opened this thread to discuss about some real ways of driving traffic to new blog posts. I am spending ton of money on content. I want to drive traffic to articles. I want to get at least 500 people to visit each post every week. How do we go about doing this? Let's discuss. Please post you ideas below and help all of us. Thank you.
