Hello guys, I'm about to start a blog in the IM/Blogging niche and I'd appreciate if you can give me a few tips on which direct traffic methods I should rely on. Obviously I'll need direct traffic to start with and I don't want to rely much on SEO at first. I just need any kind of results and I'm not talking about money, few visitors per day or couple of subs, will be enough to get me going. I've been learning and lurking around for couple of years and I know plenty of stuff, the thing is, I know most of them in theory and never put them in use. For example 'blog commenting' seems like great source of direct traffic but I'd like to know the exact numbers so I can put into prospective the traffic I'll be getting so I can focus/expand on certain things. I asked a couple of bloggers and they said about 30-50 visits per comment. Does anyone know the average number regarding visits you're getting per blog comment? I know it depends on quite few things but I'd like to get the idea. Also would love to know more about Facebook groups, what kind of traffic you get from there? What other direct traffic methods you use? Please don't tell me the general stuff,, details is what I need. For example: "I get 350 visits monthly form my forum signature or 30 visits per tweet from 250 followers". I'm aware results will vary a lot but I just want a general idea of things. I know some of you won't be comfortable revealing your methods/stats but if you do, please share. Thank you.
