327+ Places to Get Traffic To Your Blog

Do you know the best way to generate traffic to your website?

It’s actually a very simple formula.

Step 1: Find out WHERE your target audience hangs out online.

This could be specific websites, forums, Facebook groups, Pinterest Group Boards, email newsletters, etc…

Step 2: Once you identify where your people hang out online, it’s simply a matter of POSITIONING your content in front of them.

This could be buying banner ads on other websites. Paying to advertise in specific email newsletters. Sharing your blog posts with related Pinterest Group Boards. Or contributing to related forums.

But one of my favorite ways to start building an audience is to guest post on OTHER people’s blogs.

This means creating an exclusive article for a related website or blog. By doing so, you get to link back to your website in the bio. Sending you some highly targeted traffic.

In fact, did you know you can get featured on sites like Forbes, The Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, Business Insider, and Fast Company.

With just one blog post, you can start to establish your expertise online, get backlinks from authority sites, and start building an audience of your own.

Guest blogging is an opportunity to get in front of a hungry audience.

And hundreds of articles have been written on how to build your audience using guest blogging.

In fact, here are some of my favorites…
