3 Fun Sites That Help You Increase Blog Traffic

The quest to increase blog traffic can be tedious and routine. Here are some sites that make the journey a bit more fun while helping you get more visitors.

Getting the word out there daily is really the only way to increase blog traffic. Doing guest posts, internal/external links, commenting on sites that allow backlinks, dofollows…it’s what you need to do. In my effort to really become a successful blogger, I found some fun sites that are not only helping me to increase blog traffic but to also expand my reach.

BizSugar

I've use BizSugar to increase blog traffic and build my reputationFrom the minute I submitted my first link I was hooked. BizSugar is similar to Reddit but more focused on being a valuable resource to small businesses. It has a system in place where bloggers submit articles (either their own or others) that they find useful. It’s then given some sugar by other members who vote and comment. A couple of great features with BizSugar is that it limits the number of links you can submit according to your vote average. People who just joined can only submit one article per day until their vote average goes up so it provides some incentive to participate. There’s also a plugin for you to add to your WordPress blog as well as a bookmarklet for you to use if you find a great article you want to submit and share immediately. It is a fun way to meet new bloggers and get your work out there.

Blog Engage

blogengageI found Blog Engage through a trusted source and was impressed with it from the beginning. It is a subscription based program where your posts receive comments/votes from other bloggers. It’s a vast network that potentially gives ¬†global exposure to those who participate. Other great benefits are that they help you find CommentLuv enabled blogs, your new posts are introduced on Twitter and there are some cool contests. It definitely lives up to it’s name of engaging bloggers on many levels in addition to being another fun way to increase blog traffic. As I mentioned, it is a paid subscription ranging from $9.99/month and up.

Warrior Forum (WF)

Forum posting has been used to increase blog traffic for years but the Forum posting helps increase blog trafficproblem is that it wound up being spammy. That was one of the reasons why I stopped doing it. When I started hearing about WF from different sources, I decided to try it out. These guys have been around for 15 years and they have built a network of solid professionals. They’ve nipped the spam problem by implementing a one-time sign up fee ($10) in addition to strict rules and regulations. There are other specialty groups within Warrior Forum that have additional fees but for me, the initial sign up is good. I will add that getting used to WF has been a challenge for me because it’s vast and takes a lot of time but if you’re serious about increasing blog traffic for the long haul, WF is the real deal.

These are just three of the tools I’m using to increase blog traffic and attract more visitors but would love to know, what other fun sources are out there?

  5. Great article with good tips :) I am a member of W.F. I usually go there if I have a question or a problem.

    I see you you have Covert Social Press on here :) I have not gotten that one, but I have just started using the Covert Video Press theme on two of my site, (with the Video Content plugin) and I am seeing a great improvement in my Alexa ranks, since it adds new videos to my sites every day.

    I also just got the Covert Pin Press theme – I still need to install it, but I am excited about most of the Covert products so far!
