Why is getting more website traffic such a highly researched topic for any online business?
Naturally, there are plenty of obvious reasons, but the one that isn’t very easily identifiable is gratification.
Website traffic is a measurable number that tells us we are doing well giving us a boost to do even better. Or makes us tear our hair out in “why can’t I make this work!” agony.
When I wrote my blueprint to increasing website traffic, I listed the short and long term benefits of any given traffic source for a reason: to help you understand what your traffic generation starting point should be.
It’s even better explained in my free website traffic report “Mommy, Where Does Traffic Come From?”; get it here, if you haven’t already.
For instance, paid traffic, some social media traffic, guest blogging, content leveraging might get traffic back to your blog a lot faster than, say, search engine traffic, or building relationships – these traffic generation strategies simply take longer.
Given that most of us are not patient people, I wanted to brainstorm a few ways to borrow web traffic from any popular blog in your niche. Even though it’s hard to leverage this kind of traffic over long-term (it won’t keep on giving, in other words), it will definitely result in more exposure for your site today.
