Cool little traffic source... {EASY}

38 replies
Hey guys,

I thought I'd share a cool little traffic source that can
get a few hundred extra visitors to your blog posts.

All you do is simply submit your latest blog posts to
websites that have a community news section.

Some good examples include:

http://www.tripwiremagazine.com/user-links
http://www.famousbloggers.net/community-news
http://www.instantshift.com/user-submitted-news/
http://designm.ag/submit-news/
http://design-newz.com/submit/
http://woork.blogspot.com/2009/02/add-design-news-on-woork.html
http://www.pixel2life.com/

Keep in mind that your articles on these sites will need to be related to design, blogging, seo, wordpress, etc...

But this is a super simple way to get a couple hundred extra visitors to your blog post.

Cheers,

Kim

    Thanks guys!

    Sometimes we forget to do the simple things.

    I need to put this as part of my regular blog promotion launch schedule and
    have our VA do this for each new article.

      That's one of the biggest mistakes people make - searching for shiny
      new objects when they should focus on the tried and true that's
      already proven to work.

        This is very true, but not just in marketing.

        When I played professional poker, I sometimes found myself getting a little too fancy for my own good. When that happened and the profits went down, I dug into the most basic book that I owned. It was a book for beginners called 52 Tips for Texas Hold'em. It reminded me of the basics and my profits would normally go right back up.

        I use the same tactic in marketing.

        Good stuff, Kim.

    I have to say that anytime Kim Roach talks about a traffic technique -- I listen.

    I tested an idea that she suggested to me earlier this year -- and it generated for me over 2500 uniques in 48 hours (and for free)

    Great share Kim -- keep up the great work.

      what kind of traffic is that and do you mind sharing? Where can I find the tips which she shared. Also, I wouldn't mind if you give me links to all her traffic strategies. Thank you.

    Thanks for the list of sites. Most people these days are attempting overly fancy ways to get a few extra visitors to their site, completely forgetting about simple, yet effective methods such as submitting it to websites such as the ones you have mentioned ni your list. Great tip, thanks for sharing!

      Wow Chris, I got hooked with this sentence.
      The strongest thought in my mind right now is
      what is it?

      That single sentence there fired several
      psychological triggers, amazing!

      I know it's not intentional but you Sir have a
      natural skill in copywriting

      Hey guys, does only work for certain sites?

      I'm concentrating on Amazon review websites... so... would they 1) qualify for these sort of sites and b) benefit from them.

      I'm only asking cause everytime I see methods like this, I imagine that it best suited to blogs that are updated regularaly.... and on more interesting subjects than a house hold appliance...

      Thanks for the resource though
