I’m particularly excited this moment with these women – female bloggers who responded to my mail and decided to open up and share their blog traffic secrets with us. As a matter of facts, I have been reading their blogs and the simple truth is, they are just amazing. Most of us have website traffic secrets but very few will come out and share. Kudos to these ladies. I encourage you visit their blogs and interact with them. Read their strategies to get more blog traffic.
This is part one in the series. These women are exposing their minds so I’ll be publishing in parts. There is a lot in stock for you!
Recently, traffic to my blog has improved a great deal thanks to the website traffic strategies shared by these women. I have listed them in no specific order.

I’m a very bubbly, outgoing person who just loves life and people. I’ve always been passionate about helping my friends no matter what their issues have been. I’m now able to bring that online and help people in the blogging community learn and grow.
What are your traffic strategies?
For the most part now I enjoy generating traffic through referrals. Those mainly come from commenting, sharing content on the social networking sites and building relationships with others. By putting yourself out there for all to see, you start to get noticed and the traffic just starts showing up. It’s a great feeling when it comes from these sources.
Hope that’s helpful. Didn’t want to go into any long drawn out explanations Enstine.

I love to read, watch movies, walk, go to the gym, do yoga, hang with friends and family and go to the beach.
I have a diverse career background. I started out as a CPA and then we had Financial Planning business where we employed 40+ people.
I then did business coaching followed by working as CEO of a company that brought international teachers to Australia. These included Robert Kiyosaki and other greats. During my years in this role I learned much about wealth creation, the importance of residual income and internet marketing. My life was very much a full time personal development course over this time! I loved these years and learned so much. I feel very blessed to have had this experience to work so closely with many great people.
I now work from home building a business on the internet while living one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
I am married my best friend and soul mate. When I married Ivan he had 3 kids which made me an instant step mom. We have one daughter together. My step kids are now all in relationships with children of their own.
We live in a seaside tourist town north of Brisbane, QLD, Australia. The weather here is sub-tropical so we have humid hot summers and very mild short winters.
I only wish the internet had been around when my daughter was little.
Parents now can build a home based business and be there for their kids.
It is my passion to help people do that. Our kids grow up too quickly and you can never get the time back again.
I am all about helping people live an awesome lifestyle while building a business.
I have really concentrated on building relationships. I have been in several blogging syndication groups and met many awesome bloggers.
I do some SEO for my blog but I am by no means and expert.
I have done minimal paid advertising but do intend to step it up.

What are your Traffic Strategies?
I have to give a ton of credit to all of the awesome content provided by the guest bloggers I host on my blog (Enstine is a fine example of what I’m referring to). I update the blog frequently and I like to embed videos and podcasts into as many blog posts as possible. I also do a lot of networking on social media. From a techie standpoint I use Thesis Theme and SEOPressor plugin to attract traffic from search engines.

Well, I’m many things, depends on what side of me you’re asking about. :) In the online world, I’m an internet/affiliate marketer and blogger. I’ve been involved with online marketing for nearly 8 years. I’m also a undergrad student – going for my Bachelors in Marketing Degree.
Those who know me offline would say that I’m a rather quirky, goofy and random person who spends hours sitting at her computer doing God knows what. Those who aren’t in the blogging world don’t seem to get us and swear that my life is wasting away on the computer, lol.
I’m also a major marketing and traffic generation nerd. I love all things free traffic, outside of traditional SEO.
What are your Traffic Strategies?
I specialize in inbound marketing and driving traffic through building relationships and social media. Most of my traffic is largely referral traffic. I get very little SEO traffic (only random accidental SERP traffic), which is intentional.
All of my traffic is a result of a high amount of high-quality engagement with other bloggers (both up and coming and authority bloggers) via: Blog commenting, social media, guest posting and engaging in blogging/small business communities (like BizSugar).
After spending years trying to find success with SEO, I decided to 86 that idea and focus on making connections directly with people. This is the biggest and most valuable traffic generation tip I can give. Focus on connecting and engaging directly with people in your niche.
As you’re driving traffic back to your blog, you also want to be focusing on building your list. This is how I sustain and maintain my traffic driving efforts. You want to make sure you’re turning as many of your visitors as possible into long-term subscribers by building your email list.
Having your own list of subscribers is like having traffic on tap, whenever you summon it. No on can ever steal it from you and it keeps a steady stream of repeat visitors/traffic coming to your site. Plus, it keeps the engagement and interaction levels high on your posts to attract even more traffic.
I’ve been back on the blogging scene a little over 4 months now and I’ve had the most rapid success in building traffic and a community than I’ve ever had before by focusing on engagement. Oh, and of course engagement does no good if you don’t have great content. So focus on engagement and creating not great, but insanely EPIC content. That’s a recipe for a traffic wildfire.
Now, there are many ways to get traffic to blog free. I love what these ladies have done. They kept nothing secret Tell me in the comment box, what are your own website traffic strategies? What have you found common in their traffic strategies detailed above? Please comment and share.
