I have a question about getting traffic. I saw many people mentioned that submiting articles to article directories is a method of getting traffic. But I noticed that even in ezinearticles.com, most articles only have less than 100 views in a very long term( 12 months sometimes ). Considering the CTR, that means that article can only bring about 1 reader to the author's site every month. This is in EZA, and in GoArticles or ArticlesBase, I saw even worse result. Many articles in ArticlesBase only have single number views in a whole year.
So why so many people still believe that article directories can bring them traffic?
One more question: some people mentioned blog comment as a traffic method. I have never done that before, but is there anyone really get good traffic by doing this? What if I cannot give good and interesting comment? Because people said you must give good and interesting comment then those readers may click your link to your website.
Any input are welcome!
