6 Out-of-Box Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Blog - Articles Surfing

If it comes to creating your new blog, I think what I am talking about will help you make your blog famous to a large extent as it is direct from my experience getting my blog ranked no.1 in a famous blog hosting website in Thailand. Currently I got 8,000-18,000 hits a day with 1,500-3,000 unique visitors.

What I have done are very simple and it doesn't require technical background on computer language and no strings attached!

1. Choose the right blog hosting site.

This is one of the most important things at the first start. There are a huge number of blog hosting sites being created to capitalize on business opportunities mostly focused on making money via Google Adsense. However only a few hosting websites can serve that well.

Technically you have to make sure that the host of the blog hosting site you'd like is robust enough to handle a large number of visitors coming to visit your blog, easy to manage, and flexible in a sense that you can modify codes or theme yourself. This will also give you freedom in placing adsense ads in any part of your blog.

Let's get back to the point, the right blog host should be of the following:

- It must be popular among bloggers. This will automatically make your blog famous as you have chances to get visited from your blog peers.

- It can display new posts or updated blogs on the home page(preferably) or dashboard. This increases chance to get visited as well.

- The site should accommodate forum so that you can share your opinions/experiences to get your blog known by others.

- Importantly it should allow bloggers to place ads onto blogs as long as you'd like to make money.

2. Update your blog during rush hours

This will help increase chance of getting hit by those who are updating their blogs or paying visits to other blogs. As I mentioned previously that the site should display newly updated blogs on the homepage or dashboard, people tend to have a look at other blogs before updating their blogs though the chance that your blog is disappearing from the homepage is huge due to a number of blogs updated at the same time.

3. Add videos onto your blog to make it alive.

This way is evidently effective. Youtube is a good case study. People tend to digest information through video or audio materials rather than literatures. Doing this will differentiate your blog from others.

Importantly you need to ensure that your video files can be played smoothly and clearly otherwise it will adversely affect your blog as people get bored or frustrated visiting your blog. It depends on at what speed your video can be played. Don't make your guests wait too long.

Videos will help keep your guests coming in again particularly if they are music videos. There are thousands of music video codes that you can utilize.

4. Try to communicate with visitors and use informal words.

Reading formal articles is a boring thing. You should bridge this gap and get close to your visitors like friends. Blogs already allow your guests to communicate with you via comment form. This will indirectly generate words-of-mouth marketing. If your visitors are impressed, they will make link to your blog. You get one-way links. You should do the same in return if there are some space available in your blog.

5. Make links in the content

My assumption is that your blog is related to some specific matters that you would like to deliver to visitors thus by nature, each post or entry will be somehow related to one another. You'd better make links on words related to other posts. This will not just help your visitors get more information but also make them stick to your site and generate page views hence increased chance of getting high click-through rate(CTR) meaning bigger money.

6. Grab Hot Keywords like "Gillian Chung Naked"

As of today, there are only 58,000 search results on the phrase "Gillian Chung Naked" while there are probably millions of people from Asia searching for this. You will see a steep jump-up on the number of unigue visitors. Try it.

Hope this helps!
