Did you know about this traffic source?

Hi Warriors,

There's many ways to drive traffic and I've been experimenting with quite a few of them.

I just relaunched my blog about 2 weeks ago and I've been on a mission to drive as much traffic to it as I can, without the use of seo.

Through my traffic escapades, I've discovered some awesome traffic points that have been working great for me. And I wanted to share one of them with you.

I've recently come across a cool site called Scoop.it. Let me tell you, this is one awesome website. It's a content curating site that is a potential traffic beast.

I've been using this site to get further exposure to my blog and it's proven to be a decent traffic source for me.

I submitted my blog posts to influential content curators that get a lot of views and have large audiences. The curator can either accept or deny your submission. If accepted, your blog post will show up on their Scoop.it page where tons of eyes will oggle it, possibly rescoop it and send tons of traffic.

Scoop.it has been in my top 5 referrers so far and has been sending me a pretty steady stream of traffic.

Here's an example of a blog post I submitted to Ileane Smith of BasicBlogTips.com Scoop.it page:



Here's a screenshot of the traffic Scoop.it's sent me so far:



That's 78 extra visitors to my site that I wouldn've gotten other wise.

This is pretty good just starting out and I believe my traffic from Scoop.it will grow significantly over the next few weeks.

I submitted two blog post to Ms. Ileane's Scoop.it page and in return I received more exposure, traffic and built an awesome relationship with an very influential blogger (this could be beneficial in the future when I begin delving into additional traffic streams such as guest blogging and webinar swaps).

I'm pretty excited about discovering Sccop.it. I think it'll be a long term part of my traffic strategy.

Scoop.it is only one of several sources I'm using to drive traffic to my blog. I've released an in depth traffic case study breaking down all my current traffic sources. The first of an on going weekly series.

So tell me, what traffic sources are you currently using? What results are they yielding you? Can you suggest any additional traffic sources you think might be helpful?

      Yes, it's becoming one of the main parts of my traffic strategy. What I love about Scoop.it is that it doesn't take much of my time at all to implement. All I do is submit my blog posts to a few (around 5) influential Scoop.it curators with large audiences and it's takes on a life of it's own.

      Scoop.it has a great built in viral nature because other curators see your content who like it can just click the "rescoop" button and put your post on their Scoop.it pages as well. This can go on forever and your content could be spread virally through just using Scoop.it alone.

      Just make sure that the content that you submit to the curators is truly great (high quality) content. Your content has to be worth the "rescoop" in order for this method to work well for you.

      Here's a quick Tip:

      You can use Scoop.it as a quick and fun way to start building relationships with other bloggers in your niche as well. Try doing a top 7 or top 10 post including a few of your favorite bloggers. Find them on Scoop.it and submit it to them. Your submission is virtually guaranteed to be approved, especially if they're included in the post. Boom, you've made a valuable connection, gotten instant exposure and you can begin building a long term business relationship.

      Building relationships with influential people in your niche is extremely valuable. Many business building opportunities could be opened up to you to further expand and grow your business.

      I'm sure this'll work great for you. Be sure to come back and let us know how it's going. I'd love to hear your results.

      Thanks for the response!

    Thanks for sharing, that's something new for me. I might try to implement it in my traffic generation strategy.

    Currently I'm only using two types of traffic strategy. They first one Guest blogging and the second one is Solo Ads.

    Guest blogging works pretty well, as people see you as an authority when they opt-in to your list through that authority website. Its kinda funny though, some people one my list send email to my list asking questions regarding to the authority website, and I have to reply them saying I'm just a guest blogger on that website and not the owner.

      Hi Tenzho,

      I'm glad you found this strategy helpful. Guest posting and solo ads are also fantastic quick ways to build your list. Lol, I can see how readers of guest posts might get confused and mistake you as the owner.

      Here's a quick tip for you:

      You can take the guest post that you're currently doing and submit them to curators on Scoop.it. This will further help the reach of your blog post and put them in front of an entirely new audience.

      You could even take previous guest post you've already done that you feel might need more exposure/traffic and submit them to curators. This is a great way to help your guest post go viral or help your older guest post to go viral again.

      You might also want to check to see if any of the past blogs you've guest post for have Scoop.it pages. If so, since you already have relationships with them you can submit post that you post on your own blog to them. More than likely they'll accept it and that'll give you even more exposure.

      You can also check to see if the blog owners of the up coming guest post you'll be doing have Scoop.it pages and utilize this same method. If not, maybe suggest that they signup for one? It's free and it'll further help both parties get more exposure

      Let me know how this works out for you, I'd love to hear you results.

      Thanks for the response!

      Hi Demetrius,

      Yes, I find getting social/viral/community traffic much faster and easier than SEO. Plus it's a lot more fun!

      Thanks for your response and I hope this strategy helps you. Let me know how it goes.

        Hi Gary,

        So glad you enjoyed this post. Yes, Scoop.it is definitely a winner. I agree content is important, but what's even more valuable is the "relationships" that you build through your content. Let me know how this strategy works out for you
