This is the second post in my series of SEO Alternatives. Today I am going to talk about how to get free blog traffic. If you don’t have a blog I recommend you start one now. Preferably with WordPress.
One method of building backlinks for SEO purposes to to comment on other blogs, but if you think about the way you do this you can bring in some great traffic through these links, the technique I am going to show you is called “Blog Hopping”
If you have ever left a comment on my blog you will notice I use a free plug-in called CommentLuv. This really helps with traffic when leaving comments on other blogs with this plug-in. Normally when you leave a comment on a blog you leave your name and a link to your own blog, the anchor text is your name. If you try and add a keyword as your name you risk having your comment being deleted as spam. But with Commentluv there is an extra link to your latest blog post and the anchor text is the title of your post. People reading your comment are much more likely to click on an attention grabbing post title than your name so you will get a lot more traffic from posing on a blog using CommentLuv than on blogs with out this plug-in.
How Do You Find Suitable Blogs To Comment On?
The best types of blogs to comment on are ones with an audience that would be interested in your blog. Once you have found a relevant blog that uses CommentLuv check through their posts and see how many comments they get on each post, the more the better. Ideally you want to be one of the first people to comment on a new post. This means that everyone that reads the post will
see your comment and read the title of your latest blog post.
When you have done you first comment, go back to previous posts and look at all the comments. You can click trough to the blogs of other bloggers knowing that they use CommentLuv on their blogs so you can leave comments on their blogs and get more links.
After you have been hopping from blog to blog leaving comments you should start to receive comments on your own blog. Make sure you respond to each comment and then visit the commentors blog and leave a comment on their blog.
You will soon find that you are receiving traffic from many other blogs. Make sure you go blog hopping when ever your create a new post on your own blog.
How To Find CommentLuv Blogs
To find other blogs to comment on to start with or if you run out of blogs to hop to search on Google for relevant blogs that use commentLuv. CommentLuv have a search facility on their website. You need to signup but it is free.
You can also try searching for your keyword + a footprint.
“your keyword” +”CommentLuv is enabled”
“your keyword” +”YourName@YourKeywords” (Finds blogs using KeywordLuv)
Why not leave a comment for me below and get a link back to your blog.
Happy blog hopping.
