    Hi John, from what I've learnt as a beginner, I would recommend you go to some other bloggers' blog which has similar content with you and post some value information. When people have problems they are likely to get a solution for it. Giving people valuable information will catch people eyeballs. Do not post your link on other people's blog after you have posted a few useful information, because people will find that offensive. Maybe give more than 10 - 15 value information then you may start to promote your link on that particular website.

    There's another beginner way to get traffic to your blog. Seek for other forum that's about health topic. Do it the same way like I said previously. Find some thread that need medical advice and start giving solution for them. After posting more than 10 - 15 value information(or more than that), you can promote your link in that forum, and I am sure you can find traffic from there. Although is bit that much of traffic. But it is a way to seek for traffic too! IF the forum allow you to post your link on the signature area, that will save the extra work of promoting your link to your website.

    Im doing it the beginner's way here. The pro way I still don't know about it yet. But I'm sure there will be someone whose willing to help you here!

    Cheers! All the best John!

    1. Leave nice comments on other blogs in the same niche as yours. Include your link.
    2. Use traffic network like Zaparena, 2leep, wahoha etc.
    3. Submit your blog to blog directories
    4. Sumbit your articles to article directories
    5. Join forums related to your niche

    And also consider moving your blog to your own hosting with your own domain name. Wordpress will do a lot of SEO for you and a lot of plugins are available that will help you to increase your traffic

    Ways to get traffic....1. Join forums in your niche and leave comments that create value for other readers. 2. find blogs in your niche and leave comments that create value for others. 3. Article marketing submissions to the directories and then bookmark them 4. Bookmarking. There is a lot of great info in this form and other places if you type these methods into Google and start reading and learning the ways to do these things. Buy courses that help you grow. I know it is a little overwhelming at first but do one thing at a time and it will add up.

    You're posting duplicate content. You'll never get any traffic like that.

    Write original articles that target long tail keywords and build back links to them. What works for me (and this is probably going to be seen as blasphemy) is targeting long tail keywords with original content and a few back links.

    I started with a few articles that had targeted some keywords that got about 600 hits a month. A few back links and I am in first place and getting 5 to 10 new visitors from SEO each and every day.

    Every day I do a few things:
    1. Write an article that is fully optimized for a low competition, relevant keyword.
    2. Make sure that content is good and engaging and post it to my blog, submitting it to stumbleupon.com
    3. use buildmyrank.com to build four or five back links for each keyword I target (I usually try to target searches that work double duty. For instance "how to make money online" and "make money online." <- this is not my niche).
    4. Comment on a few other blogs and try to be helpful, getting people to click through to my site almost every time

    I also mix and match the linking I do. I have one big keyword I am targeting for the long term. I build 2-3 links for that every day. I put the bulk of keywords towards the article I wrote that day, and then a few like "click here" and "check out domain.com" - to help build a more "natural" back link profile.

    At first, it was very, very hard work. I only got 1 or 2 hits a day for the first couple of weeks, but it kept climbing up by 1 or 2 almost every day. After a while, I have hundreds of articles on my blog, and each one brings in between 1 and 20 unique NEW visitors per day.

    There is no "get rich quick" scheme that has that kind of staying power.

    But notice that the first step for me is to create good content.

    Hi reinvein. There are so many ways. Here's an easy one I like: Take the link to your blog, or seperate blog posts, and put them on related Facebook Groups as well as Twitter. Also, Squidoo is very cool because you can put your blog link on your lenses as well as make money.

    To Your Success,

    Hello Everyone! I am brand new to Warrior Forum and REALLY LOVE most of what i have read so far. I have a few questions regarding starting my online ventures.

    Currently I have 3 websites and one in progress. I purchased an annual membership with a template company because I want to add my own unique template to a couple of them and I also purchased Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5 because I want to design my own website templates as well. Really I want all of my websites to be top notch viewing quality for visitors so that they will have a pleasant purchasing and viewing experience. So by now everyone can guess that I have spent A LOT of money on trying to get started on my online endeavors.

    With one of the sites, I want to create a blog that I plan to run a lot of affiliate marketing on in that specified niche. So first question is:
    How do I drive abundant traffic to the site from the day it launches?

    The second site will be mainly a blog regarding a different niche with affiliate marketing. But I want to add a store to the site. So the second question is:
    How do I add an affordable store front quickly?

    I would like to do some drop shipping with the other site but I don't know of any reputable drop shipping company's that are affordable? So I need help there also. I really want to be up and running with all of these sites within the next 30 days. I incorporated two businesses that have the names of two of the sites and I want to get started asap. I am learning html and xhtml and want to learn css also.
    How do I get started with my endeavors quickly and realistically how soon should I expect to receive revenue if I am truly putting in the work? Where can I find an all in one source to help me pull it all together? I have tax ID numbers for two of the online endeavors. Can I attempt to open a business credit card to help with funding?
    What should I do? Please help! I have less than $100 left to get these things running and don't want to end up broke. I have 4 children to feed on my own. PLEASE HELP! I see a lot of great offers here but I don't know what would be best.

    Thanks for viewing and I hope that I didn't scare anyone!

      Two of the most important parts of SEO and getting the top of the search engines like Google are keywords and content. So it's important to do some research to get the best keywords for your niche, there may be several. Then write keyword specific content and add it to your blog.

      I would agree with another who suggested getting your own WordPress blog. Even better would be to host your own WordPress Blog. You can also have several blogs if there are many other keywords you want to use, then you can link them together. Unless you are doing some serious modifications there are no costs to use WordPress.

      Mostly, don't try to do whatever is the fastest or quickest way to do it. The shortcuts will end you up in the gully. Take your time, digest the advice and suggestions and move steadily forward, knowing that you will accomplish your intended objective, in time.

        not sure if you are willing to put some money in.

        1. get your blog to page #1 #1 on google that alone will give you quite a lot of traffic.
        2. make sure your domain name is the same as your blog getting you better rankings on Google.
        3.write some good articles about your blog 2-3 articles between 850-1200 words would be good
        4. rewrite one article (400-550 words) copyscape it making sure it's at least 85% unique and submit it to ezine articles and once its accepted you will have a at least 2 links from there and if any other ezines, article directories pick it up then you will have more links
        there are many other strategies to use but these are the basics
        5 make sure your article is properly seo'ed and keywords at least 3% populated through out your articles with your title with your main keyword and each paragraph with your main keyword preferably in the beginning
        I wish you much success and don't give up

      The first tip I will give you is to use your own domain on your own hosting, Blogger.com is ok, but you have no control over it.

      I use wordpress on my hosting and I can do so much and I have control over it.

    I have not done this yet but it is something that has been percolating in my mind for a few hours... yeah just today. But years ago before the internet when I owned a Real Estate Company we had a goal... make the phone ring. We used a lot of cheap classified adds and were very successful.

    Been thinking ... can I do this only instead of making the phone ring make them click my link. Can I come up with inexpensive classified adds in newspapers that will make them click my link using maybe those qr codes (reading this article is what got me to thinking What you need to know about QR codes and the future of print engagement with mobile | New Media Bytes | Online journalism, web production and promotion)

    Do not know how small these codes can be, don't know how popular they are but have read of several marketers getting results using them on business cards, flyers and blogs. Why not print media classifieds? One thing that use to be true (may still be true)... a newspaper classified add would often still pull weeks and sometimes months after the add ran.. may be worth considering.

    Just a thought if do will post results. Right now just thoughts
