Tip – Our strategy works with all the combined sources. We think, Plan, test, and then implement. We don’t go through what others are doing and what others recommending, since no one reveals secrets. Firstly we see what is attracting our audience, what content they need and we write on audience demand and thus, we get regular readers as we deliver that interests them and proves to be useful for them. Thus it counts in traffic. Google+Twitter+Facebook are not traffic sources for everyone.
My Comments - There you go! Social media is not for everyone. In short, Ramandeep’s blog provides on what their readers demand.

Says – Basically organic traffic from google is my top source but I would say never that one should depend on Google Because when your site is hit by Google Algorithm updates, then much of your blog’s traffic can fall from 100 to 0. Even though I pretty much depend on organic traffic, I equally use social media and it is the a great source which brings loyal readers and if we can use CTA Properly then we can convert those visitors to Readers, then readers to Subscribers and so on. From social media I basically give 60% of my time to Twitter and Triberr. Those two networks are the second and third best traffic sources for my blog. All these visits help me to get some affiliate sales as well.
My Comments - A combination of organic traffic and social media traffic works wonders for Amit – and what about you?

Advises – Create attractive SEO friendly post Title. It helps me to get Organic and Referral traffic. As the title is SEO frindly (right keyword at right position) so it ranks well in search engines and helps me to get organic traffic. Attractive title creates quorosity among the pass by readers to know what is in the article and they click on your article link whenever you share it on any social networking site.
My Comments - Sandeep asks you to focus on your titles – and the rest will happen by itself. Something unusual, but worth knowing here.

Invites you to try – Blogging Contests. I don’t want to repeat common things like Guest Blogging, Social Media, Killer content and blah blah…We all know these things. For me, I think Blogging Contests have given a lot of exposure to me and my blogs. Participating in blogging contests on popular blogs or communities such as Blog Engage gives us a hell lot of readers, connections with new bloggers, and therefore a lot of traffic.
My Comments – One more different approach to getting traffic. Contests not only bring traffic, build relationships and connections, but might also get you some money!

Has only one word: Content. Now more than ever before, content is indeed king. With Google turning increasingly smarter about recognizing quality content, SEO has changed. If you want traffic from Google, the easiest way is to have great content.

Speaks About Social Media (even though the best traffic source is Google, but doesn’t want to repeat the same things) – Facebook is definitely the best source of traffic for me , it gets me around 500-700 visitors per month from Facebook and in 8 months of blogging it has been the highest. Second traffic source is Twitter which gets me about 300 visitors per month but it gets replaced by linked in , stumbleupon. #Pro Tip : Try to be more engaging in social media sites but try to stick to one at a time for. e.g if you want to get traffic from Facebook then stick with Facebook and share other people’s content in order to get more shares on your links. For Twitter try to use a service like justretweet.com in order to get more followers and traffic. Being social is the key to get awesome traffic , shares , comments, subscribers on your blog.
My Comments - Even though the highest traffic source for Saad’s blog is Google, he preferred to write about Social media. This explains that even though you might not have any organic traffic, you can rely upon Social media.

I’ll say “Yahoo! Answers” can be a great source of traffic. Most bloggers think they are outdated and Quora killed them, but that is not true. Even today I do get a good number of visits from Yahoo! Answers, and they are regular.
The trick is to pick a question for which you have a related blog post, and then to answer the question satisfying all the needs. We have to try our best to make our answer as the best one to get extra exposure. In the source section, we can mention our blog post link for additional information, am sure visitors will check that post for getting the solution or to get more information.
My Comments - Another different approach – and a great one indeed. Even today, there are thousands of questions being asked on Yahoo and if you have any information regarding that – you can either post about it on your blog and then link it as an answer, or just link your blog with an answer.

I like social media and the relationships you can build joining the most popular networks. Even if some popular bloggers assume that Twitter is dead, this is still a great social media, if used correctly. There are so many online tools linked to Twitter, that you can use to generate many connections in your niche and receive traffic to your websites!
Triberr is my favorite one : a fantastic community site where you can multiply your social media audience. You can decide to connect not only Twitter, but also your LinkedIn and Facebook accounts. The system automatically lets your Triberr members share your new posts via their social media accounts : this amplifies the market reach of your content. Just think that I have almost 43 million of reach and 2400 tribemates, which means each of my new posts may be shared to that number of audience. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? ”JustRetweet” and “ViralContentBuzz” are two others tools that I use to promote my new posts.
Basically you earn credits by sharing other user’s content and you can spend them submitting your links, which will be shared by other members in order to earn more credits. Both sites are connected to different social media networks, like Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and Pinterest.
If you do not use any of the tools I have just mentioned, I strongly recommend you to start right now, if you want to get your market reach amplified!
My Comments - I’m going to be Erik’s tribemate soon – and I hope to see you there as well!
