  • Yes i like it so, most people depends on google for traffic, i mostly depends on other ways like blog commenting,article submission, social bookmarking sites etc..coz, the amount of traffic you gets depend on your dedication unlike search engine that have much competitors compared to you search engine optimisation knowledge. how you can retain and maximise the power status of your phone

  • I think, what you have mentioned in your post I have already tried earlier and the results is awesome. the focusing point is, 1. generate original content, 2. increase your site popularity online through backlinks.. rest are least and can do afterwards...

  • these are quality traffic generating tips but in the aspect of forums, does it mean that an aspiring successful blogger must have a forum? Because it is regarded as scam when posted on forums.

  • I did go through all the points, all are well written and nicely explained. Frankly speaking i was expecting at least a few new points, but did not find any as all of them are the same almost every where. I do follow your blog regularly but this time a random Google search bought me right here. A few points like write quality content, update regularly, social media exposure, blog commenting and update regularly were the best as i constantly try to do the same on my blog as well.

    Thanks & Keep the good work going
