    I've been lurking this forum for a couple weeks now trying to learn as much as I can and I'd like to first say thank you for all the great information on this site. Anyway, I've started a gossip/celebrity blog a couple weeks ago and I am averaging around 300-600 unique hits a day. Most of my traffic is currently come from FB,Twitter, and myspace. I have a pretty good FB fan page going but it was deleted by facebook. :( Anyway, my goal for the blog is to get actually readers who enjoy the content. I'm not looking to sell anything, or trick anyone to click on advertising links. Later down the road when traffic really picks up I will look into placing ads. But right now I really just want traffic from people who enjoy my posts! :)

    My question is: Should I start using scrapebox? Or is there another way to get legit traffic. I'm not looking to blow this blog up over night.. I just want nice consistent traffic without having to rely on facebook.


    Thanks for any input!

    I'd suggest that you lend some of your time to SEO for this site. It's nice that you've got some built-in traffic from social media outlets, but it would be good to have organic traffic as well. Try building some Web 2.0 sites and then drive a ton of links to them.

    Considering that you posted this in the blackhat section of the forum, I'd suggest that you embrace the concept of blackhat, even if a little at a time. Don't be afraid to bend the rules a bit and take some risks to get your site where you want it to be. And don't hesitate to monetize now. Even a small amount of income is better than none.

    Anyhow, the search feature can be your best friend. USE IT, READ A BIT, and TAKE ACTION!

    Good purchase. As tedious as this may sound, go thru the SB thread, and take your time reading everything. Cut and past notes into word or notepad to reference later. Please please please learn how to use the this tool before you start to use...if you don't, you can really screw things up.
    And this is coming from experience.
