How to Get More Blog Traffic Without Spending a Single Cent?

Generating traffic is not as easy as it seems. It’s frustrating to have zero viewers and clicks on your blog posts. Businesses take advantage of the fact that more consumers use social media to research products.

It’s tempting to spend money on paid search and social traffic. While there is really nothing bad about spending money for marketing, it’s still better to get traffic the natural way.

This issue of getting more traffic naturally is very common in the blogosphere. If you don’t want to spend a dime on organic traffic, you might want to consider these strategies:

1. Create illustrative images from your blog posts. Consumer-focused niches, such as cooking and photography, can benefit from this tactic. You may want to turn them to Imgur via Reddit. You may also create stunning images and share them on Pinterest. Visual search engines are as powerful as traditional search engines.

2. Repost your content multiple times. Thing is, your target audience does not log in all at the same time. This is where automated posting tools are very helpful. Buffer, Postcron, and Hootsuite are three of the most popular apps that you can use for free. Reshare your contents multiple times on various platforms. This would especially work on blogs with evergreen topics.

3. Guest-post. It is the process of publishing an article on someone else’s blog. Aside from getting quality traffic, guest-posting helps you develop your authority. Being an authority in a certain niche normally involves years of hard work but there are new bloggers who easily get themselves associated with top bloggers in just less than a year. And that is all because of guest-posting.

4. Go offline and meet fellow bloggers. There are conferences that you may attend for free. You can use this as an opportunity to learn something and connect with other marketers. Going back to guest posting, you can use this technique to make friends with other bloggers in your niche.

5. Submit your sites in high-quality directories. Sending your content to online directories is a good way to boost your SEO efforts and rank in Google. Below are some of the best directories you can submit your website to:

-Chiff
-BOTW
-dmoz
-Qango
-Yahoo directory

As you can see, there are a lot of creative ways you can apply to grow your audience and increase blog traffic.

Above all, I just want to emphasize the importance of creating good content. When you have engaging, highly-informative posts on your blog, it’s easy to build a “tribe,” or an audience who will stick with you no matter what.
