If there is one thing out there that every blogger wants for his/her blog, it’s definitely a massive and jaw dropping traffic. Well, it isn’t quite easy to come by if you don’t work hard for it. As you know, the competition keeps heating up and there are lots of blogs coming up in every Niche daily to compete with you on search results.
Don’t you think it would be a nice idea if you can device an alternative to search engines that’s if they do not tend to favor you on their search results? Or even if you get a decent amount of traffic from them, you could still add this up to your ways of pulling traffic to your blog, at least you do not have to put all your eggs in one basket.
Though I get a reasonable amount of traffic from search engines, I simply decided to work on ways to improve my traffic without Google and it has proven to be a bomb shell for me. Even without search engines, I can boldly say I make loads of traffic from other sources.
In this article, I will be exposing various secrets to you which I use in pulling huge and massive traffic to my blog. Make sure you read this article carefully, it would surely be of a great help to you.
Ways To Driving Traffic To Your Blog Without SEO and Google
Before I go into the points you need to consider in order to get traffic to your blog without a Google Search Engine, firstly consider the point below
Your Post Headlines Or Titles
I decided to start by writing about your post headlines before every other point because this is the main focus of your content. Before anyone clicks on your content, the first thing they come across is the post’s title. This would determine if they should click on your link or rather click on the big red X button to exit your blog window.
There are little tips you have to bear in mind while writing a title, these have been keeping me in the blogosphere and helps me in writing a must read killer headline. Here are some headline tips I make use of;
- Write your headlines from back to front. For instance, instead of writing “How To Rank on Google’s First Page“, write “Why You Can Not Rank On Google’s First Page“. It’s a kind of negation.
- Write List titled articles.
You can start with these above points in writing a post tile/headline and next, I would guide you through how you can use those headlines to turn in the traffic without search engines.
1. Social Media
With the number of people using social networks and the increasing number of people registering daily, it can really prove to be a great source of traffic for bloggers. The social media has been my major source of traffic after search engine.
One major advantage of using the social media is that it tends to help promote your blog and helps in making your blog popular. Not only does is popularize your blog, it also gains you repeated traffic to your blog. I’ve explored few social networks anyway that worked quite well for me and I would list them out for you.
- Facebook: Join Blogging groups, interact with bloggers, create your blog fanpage and share your blog articles.
- Twitter: Try to follow and retweet others to catch their attentions, then tweet your blog articles also.
- Pinterest: Works great for image lovers.
I won’t be giving you a massive list because this three sites mentioned above are really worth more than you can imagine. I get loads of referral traffic from them. Try them out.
2. Blog Commenting
Blog Commenting is a great way to start up a relationship with the host blogger and also their readers. One point to keep to mind while leaving comments on other people’s blog is; leave a contribution to the article in form of a comment. This would draw the attention of the host blogger and the readers, they would love to know more about the person adding value to the content they just read, and in turn they would visit your blog from the link provided.
Commenting goes a long way in making your blog popular. One of the bloggers I respect so much for lengthy and reasonable comments on other peoples blog is Harleena Singh of Aha-Now . You might have noticed her comments on this blog or other blogs. Her contributions really makes her stand out and has helped her in gaining a large following using the commenting system.
I applied her strategies in commenting and it has turned to work out great for me, I get lots of traffic from other blogs I commented on.
NB: Do not decline from leaving comments on Nofollow blogs, all types of links are useful if you wish to promote your blog.

3. Forum Posting
If you are among those who have underestimated the power of forums, then you have been missing out on a lot of traffic. This is one place I think I’ve not worked well on, but from the little I have used forums, I can tell you that it has helped drive a lot of traffic to my blog. Here is how I use forums
- I register on forums which are related to my Niche in order to get a targeted audience.
- I try to give answers to questions without spamming.
- I create topics that would be of benefit to the forum members.
Now try to improve on the above 3 points, you would gain popularity and trust on those boards, and it’s time to start getting your traffic.
- After you’ve won their trust you can answer questions with links back to your blog articles, it won’t raise eyebrows. Infact, the Mods and Forum members would really appreciate your help in growing the forum.
- Add your link and keywords to your forum signature.
This simple tips have really worked in gathering a nice reading audience for me from various forums, you too can.
If you can implement these strategies I’ve stated rightly, you would experience a tremendous increase in your blog’s traffic even without search engines.
Now, this is not actually the end of this article, I’ve split this post into several parts, so that you can start with these 3 for now. I would post other subsequent strategies in other parts which I’ll be publishing sooner than you expect on this same blog.
