@christinamarie7 Getting guest bloggers on your site is one way to draw another blogger’s audience to your site. An even better way to get new people to your blog is to guest post on other blogs yourself. Excluding Google and Direct traffic, out of the top 10 traffic referrers to my blog, 3 are sites I guest post on regularly. The other 7 are social media sites.
Another way to get new visitors to your blog from social media sites is through their groups. Facebook and LinkedIn both probably have some groups within your niche. Start participating in those groups and, when extremely relevant, drop a link to one of your blog posts. You should see a boost from that!
My other favorite way to drive in new traffic to my blog is via blog commenting. As I mentioned in the webinar, if you can find blogs enabled with CommentLuv. Try searching Google for a particular topic and the word CommentLuv (like gardening Commentluv). When you comment on a blog with CommentLuv, you’ll get a link back to your blog as well as a link to your latest blog post underneath your comment. People will get the chance to be grabbed by your latest post’s headline which could lead to more visits.
Don’t neglect blogs without CommentLuv though – if you leave well thought out, valuable comments on a blog, people will notice and click on your website to learn more about you!
