#1. Work Hard
Treat your blog as a business and take the time out to create high quality post. In the first few months do not pitch a sale. Your main focus should be creating a fabulous blog full of great content. Your main goal is to over deliver great content and become the expert of your niche.
#2. Update Regularly
As a new blog your main focus is to update content on a regular basis. By updating your site on a regular basis it will help search engine crawl to your blog and therefore it will help attract new visitors. Here are some guidelines you can follow:
- Create 3-6 Quality Content Per Week

#3 Find A Mentor
A mentor is a great way to find someone that has been in your place and will guide you in the right path. A mentor will teach you different strategies, tactics, and save you time. The mentor will also be someone that can encourage you when you want to throw in the towel.
#4. Guest Posting
Guest posting is a powerful way to connect with new people, form new relationships, and expose your blog to large audiences. As you become a regular contributor on other sites, the more people will recognize you as an expert.
- Guest posting on 1 blog a day
#5. Guest Commenting Strategies
I personally spend a lot of time guest commenting on different sites. The strategy behind guest commenting is getting to know other individuals in my niche and driving free traffic to my site. So how do I drive traffic?
- Leave A Well Thought Comment
- Always Use Your Real Name
- Make Sure To Sign Up For Gravatar Account
- No Stuffing Keywords In the Comment
- Never Gamble With A Site That Isn’t Yours
Following these guidelines will help you get your comment approved and not ban from the site. In addition, you might get lucky by gaining some new visitors from the comment you left. I personally leave a guest comment on 20 blogs per day.
I add all my backlinks myself. In order, to increase your page rank you must have quality inbound links. The backlinks that are pointing back to you should consist of relevant websites only. A great way to build natural links is creating 5 backlinks a day. Building too many backlinks in a short period of time will raise a red flag for Google and penalize your site by lowering your page rank. There are two types of links:
- Primary Links: (Here are some few samples to get you started)
- Blog Post
- High Quality Article Directory
- Directory Submission
- Secondary Links:
- Blog Commenting
- Social Media
- Forum Post
#7 Social Media:
Using social media is a powerful tool to distribute your content to thousands of people within minutes. Social media sites like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter have become a mainstream communication tools for marketers. Social media can be a powerful tool when use the right way. Social media will help with content strategy, marketing, auto sharing, and much more.
My strategy when it comes to social media is posting every article on various social media sites. The social site I use the most is Facebook Groups. I am able to join multiple groups relevant to my niche. I am actually a member of over 200 groups. I personally post every article I published on each group. It drives tons of free traffic to my website for FREE. I also love using Twitter. I have an auto program called Tweet Adder that helps me auto share all my post with out the need to be on Twitter.
My personal strategy is to update all my social media sites when I published an article. I post an article everyday on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Twitter. I also spend about 2 hours a day in social media conversing with others, liking others post, adding new friends, requesting new friends, and socializing. Many people post on social media but forget to converse with the audience. In the beginning, you need to make your presence online by building interpersonal relationships with others.
