    Hello fellow Black Hatters!

    So I recently opened a new blog, a swedish one. It basically puts out exclusive coupon codes and reviews items from those companies.

    So my question is, what would you recommend for easy traffic?

    I am not new to this but I usually go with other niches or have international blogs, so this is a new hunting ground for me.

    My only idea so far besides from pinging the blog is to stalk blogs but I would have to search for blogs where people write about their problems to find cheap christmas gifts, the amount of blogs aren't that big since Sweden only has about 9-10 million citizens, many of them not being active on the Internet.

    So, I'll take any advice. Note that I am also SEO optimizing my site, but I'd like to get more targeted visits.

    If I had a coupon blog, I'd be submitting them to places like slickdeals and retailmenot. Have you tried that or would it work with your blog?

    Ah! I did not think of that! Gonna check if there are any swedish sites like that, since English ones wouldn't convert for me.

    Hmm, there are many but it seems none of them allows you to get credit for it, so no way to get a backlink to your blog.

    Hope you have a big fan list in your social media pages. why can't you share your coupons in them. Actually social media is the best way for genuine traffic and sales.

    All the best :)

    I tried with my large twitter account, didn't generate one view. I guess I could start a new Facebook account for the site.

    It is better to use the old facebook account which are having genuine friends. If required just create a page with that account :)

    You may want to try posting on the major local classified sites. Not sure what the craigslist equivalent is in Sweden but getting backlinks on sites like those can not hurt your cause.

    Be active on all these coupon and freebie related forums and list your latest deal on the Signature of your post.

    Second, the majority of traffic is going to come from Google. If I have to purchase a new product, I immediately search for 'Company name coupons' to see if I can get the product cheaper using one of these coupon codes. So target these keywords and try ranking on top. That's the way to the top.

    Though new here, but I think I have some suggestions for easy traffic sites such as... a relevant topics or issues, needs of the people, that concerns fast money or easy generating funds especially in this season and trends, as well.

    So I started a page on FB, how would you recommend getting more likes to it? I am considering using Fiverr and buy a few thousand just so it looks more professional.

    Also, what monetizing method would you recommend works best? I am currently just put affiliate links to products on the blog, but maybe just regular CPA locking on the site or on the code would work better?

    please using SEO on page and SEO off page. Create original and unique contents and you can make backlinks to some directories.

    Build links for your website and join different social media networks. Those would improve your rankings in the search engines and will eventually bring more traffic to your blog.
