It’s really frustrating.
You have found exciting content ideas. Research the content for a long 2 hours. And then you have outlined the content, write, edit and finally publish your content.
You also share this content in the facebook blog page, twitter personal account and some other places.
And now you have been waiting for a full day to see visitors. Not thousands of visitors, you happy with hundred.
But result even worse. You get only 6 visitors in total.
Discouraging, frustrating. Right?
You may tell yourself blogging is not for you.
But the good is news is you are wrong. You predict it so early.
I have been there, too. Not so long ago when I had no traffic, no comments. It was so frustrating as now you’re felling.
But I didn’t give up blogging. I knew blogging isn’t sprint, its marathon. It’s like a tree. It slowly grows up but you can’t see the growth.
My initial days of blogging I read a lot. And I remember the most common topic I read how to get traffic to my blog.
I was overwhelmed. There were so many traffic tips. What to follow? I experimented with some traffic tips. Some worked, some didn’t.
Anyway, I share some traffic tips that worked for me these early days. I think it also going to work for you.
1. Blog comment
Why do I mention this first? Because its the most effective way to get initial traffic. Not only get traffic to new blog, if you leave the appropriate comment, you can also build strong connections with fellow bloggers and get sweet backlinks.
But be careful. If you leave a comment like nice, good post. It doesn’t help anymore. You need to leave a thoughtful, insightful comment.
As you see she added so much value. You need to write comments like this. That’s the way you get real benefit from comment.
2. Network with
fellow bloggers to get traffic
Rayn Biddulph is a firm believer of networking. He mentions and shares other bloggers so generously. I am inspired by him to share other blogger content. And you know what? They also share my content.
Join facebook group, participate in the discussion. Share other bloggers, mention them in your blog so generously.
As a result, they read your blog, if they like your blog, they may share your blog also.
Similarly, you can use Twitter to network with other fellow bloggers. As a beginner, networking is an effective method to get a good amount of traffic.
3. Get Traffic to
new blog with facebook groups
Facebook groups provide good traffic if you use it effectively. After joining a facebook group, you can not share your link immediately. If you do that, people treat you like spammer. Instead, participate in discussions, share valuable tips, network with people. And then people slowly start to trust you.
Many groups give you a chance to share your content daily or weekly basis.
So join the facebook group in your niche and start promoting yourself.
Here are some good facebook group to join if you want to learn blogging and promote yourself.

5. Write beneficial content so that readers can’t ignore
If you write mediocre content, people never back to your website again. So you need to write content that readers devour dose after dose.
What if you promote your website social media and readers start to visit your website but they can’t find any helpful information?
They leave for forever. You never see them again.
So, I recommend first to write outstanding content and then start promoting your website. If you give them a good first impression, readers most probably turn into fans.
Have you ever used Pinterest? It’s fun. It also a good traffic source also.
