#1: Fresh And Fascinating. ContentThe key is to have fresh top quality content on your blog: Both useful and interesting content is very vital to keep the search engines hungry of your blog site. If your blog content is rubbish then, no one will read it, and no one will share or promote it. If your content does add value to the lives of the blog readers, your visitors will be too pleased to share it with their friends, family members and colleagues. This processes could help make your blog go viral.
Topical content is good, but major success comes in blogging only when you are unique with your articles and keeps update with the latest on the trends. By staying ahead of the game (blogging), I mean you should learn how to create fascinating content on a style and subject that is not too common.
#2: Blog CommentingIf you really want to focus on viral traffic, visit high pageranks dofolow blogs and drop a quality comments on the blog after reading their posts. This is very important, if you visit a blog site and the articles sounds interesting, of course you can drop a high quality comment expressing your views and observations of what the blogger wrote. Blog commenting is one of the top ways to command visitors to your blog.
This method is proven more active if you are the type that writes 50+ quality content in your comments and not just "thanks it helps" or so, this is not what I called "outstanding and attractive blog comment," most active blog comment readers will most likely click on the names of comment authors' with epic and outstanding comments. Please, this practice shouldn't be seen as an exploit to spam on a site in name of building back-links.
#3: Join Online Communities and create Threads in ForumsForums and online communities are great source of generating low cost traffic to your blog. With helpful and meaningful tips in a thread, you're effeminately going to command viral traffics to your blog site. One of my hot tips is; "create threads in forums like you are writing a guest posts. Threads with short content and less attractive titles are prone to command less attentions."
Nairaland and Warrior forum, are one of the forum sites to join and add a catchy keywords along side your blog URL while creating profile signature. Things to avoid while doing this are: spamming and adding self promotional links to your threads, else you all be banned; more also avoid copying content from your blog, it does no good to your blog than inviting the Google ninja.
#4: Join Some Active Groups on FacebookWhile am sure social media isn't a new deal to any blogger. Rarely would you see a blog site where there no links to any social media sites. Facebook groups are one of the active ways of generating low cost blog traffics. By joining groups on Facebook, you're definitely going to drive traffics to your blog, helps get your blog site exposed to other bloggers who could help review your blog designs and layout. Some groups don't accept links to your blog, while others accepts links posting and comment exchange. As a blogger, I recommend you get involved with some active groups on Facebook.
#5: Exchange LinksIn today's blogging, rarely would you see a blog site without links to other blogs. Many WebMasters are willing to trade links with one another in order to make their sites gain more public awareness. Links exchange boost your chances of getting a high ranking in search engines results.
