Okay, who else wants to get more traffic?
Silly question, right?
But often, getting traffic can be a real struggle, can’t it?
One that leaves you feeling frustrated and disappointed.
What makes it all worse is finding out that almost all those tactics peddled by the guru-squad as steps to success, don’t actually work when you put them to the test.
Like you, I found this out to my cost too. I started 3 blogs before starting this blog, Traffic Smart Marketing.
Yes, I made mistakes. Yes, I gave up too soon on one blog. But mostly, I failed because I was trying to create a successful blog based on broken tactics and strategies (and in a couple of cases, probably crappy advice that may have worked once but certainly didn’t work by the time I came to use them).
So, I stopped.
I stopped following the guru-squad experts crappy advice and started looking for people who were truly successful online. And by successful, I mean people who actually did have a large audience. People who actually did have products or a service their audience bought. People who actually did make money, in some cases 6-figure incomes.
It took me awhile but eventually I began to find them.
They stand out. Head and shoulders above the guru-squad. Their truth, honesty and realism are refreshing. You recognise them as soon as you see them for these reasons.
(Quick side note here) Funnily enough, I discovered Lisa’s blog because I was looking for how-to advice on creating PDFs and from there followed links to her other content.). Which shows an important point at work: if you want to attract traffic to your blog and then convert it into readers: solve a real problem for someone first – then keep them by introducing them to more useful and helpful advice. Thanks for this lesson, Lisa! I’m grateful.)
Then I discovered Marco Saric’s HowToMakeMyBlog.com. Finally, here was advice I could get my head round because instead of talking about how to make trillions of dollars a month with a blog, or how to get millions of people to my blog, Marco gave sensible advice like How To Get Your First 500 Readers, a figure that I could relate to and believe that I, as a new blogger, could reach.
I kept on searching, realising that there was good advice and people out there ready and willing to help people like me trying to start our own blogs. People like …
Corbett Barr and his blog ThinkTraffic.net (now Sparkline). He led me to others, namely Jon Morrow, and these others led me to more in turn … David Cain of Rapitude.com, Copyblogger.com (Yes, I know – bit late to the party with Copyblogger!) which actually taught me a lot about how to structure my blog posts.
These 101 Incredibly Powerful Traffic Resources Are The Result Of This Search …
Read them and you’ll discover some of the best lessons, tips, tools and advice out there, right now, on the internet today.
I know because these are the posts that taught me valuable lessons, skills and know-how in my journey to creating a blog.
A blog that worked and took the frustration out of getting traffic.
Some of these posts I got off my bookmarked list (a list that I keep going back to for real advice whenever I need a strategy that actually works). It’s a list that I started some time ago now. Some of them I had noted down in various notebooks I kept as I learnt.
This is my living resource kit.
Excellent and Timeless Quality Advice
A few resources included in this 101 list may be a few years old now. But it’s a tribute to the real, un-guru-squad advice they offer, that they still give you excellent and timeless quality advice. So, that’s why they’re here.
When you’re just starting out on your blogging journey (or even if you’ve been struggling to get noticed for awhile now) you need resources you can rely on.
You’ll find these resources right here. They taught me so much in the beginning that I feel a loyalty to them.
Not to mention, their authors, the blogging geniuses who really know their stuff, are actually as successful as they claim and are still telling it like it is with strategies that actually work.
That’s saying something when half your struggle and frustration to get noticed and create a popular blog as been created by crappy advice from the guru-squad.
None of these posts are here because they “look good”. They’re ALL here because they each have something concrete, sensible, realistic and workable to teach you whatever step along the journey to frustration-free traffic generation you’re on.
Swipe File of Strategies
Make these resources your swipe file of strategies to go from frustrated invisible blogger to popular. Make it a living resource, so like I did with these posts, bookmark this page.
Are you ready to go from invisible to popular blogger?
Here’s what you need to do now …
First, the best way to stop being invisible is by following me on Twitter …
So, come on over and introduce yourself. I share useful links about Twitter, writing, getting traffic, links to really good content, the odd cat video and more. And, it’s a good way stay updated on the latest traffic resourses that are working now.
Then, after you’ve followed me on Twitter, you can continue to get maximum benefit from these incredibly powerful traffic resources.
These resources will teach you how to start a blog, how to get traffic, build a loyal follower base from scratch, little-known ways to grow your readers and subscribers and more!
Here’s how to get maximum benefit from these blog traffic resourses …
Each resource is collected under a specific subheading which relates directly to the outcome you want to get.
When you click one of the links below, it will take you straight to full resource post … without refreshing the page. So, all you need to do now is pick an outcome you want to discover how to get first – and off you go …
How to Get Traffic to Your Blog Fast
“the last five years, I’ve mentored over 2,000 bloggers. I’ve examined their promotional activities. I’ve seen their traffic stats. And the vast majority of what you’re being told to do simply does not work. It’s not just less effective than advertised. It produces almost no meaningful results whatsoever.”
-Jon Morrow @jonmorrow, Boost Blog Traffic.
Jon Morrow knows a thing or two about getting traffic. He grew his blog to 13,000 email subscribers before he had even launched it.
Jon taught me a powerful lesson about traffic – Not all traffic is good. Not all traffic is worth the effort most people put into getting it.
Traffic is only as good as the readers, subscribers and income it brings you.
There are people out there who will tell you ALL traffic matters. That ALL traffic will get you readers, subscribers and an income. They’re wrong. It won’t.
To make it worth your effort you need to get the right kind of traffic. You need to get traffic-smart. This means, knowing who is most likely to want what you’re offering now and has the desire and money to buy it.
The resources in this section (and in the section that follows it) will give you the steps and the know-how you need to get the right kind of traffic for you and save yourself a great deal of time, effort and frustration into the bargain.

How to Get More Traffic to Your Blog
“Show people they matter by listening to them and paying attention to who they are — beyond the confines of their business.”
– Tea Silvestre, @TeaSilvestre, StoryBistro.com
Perhaps the best way to get more traffic is to ditch your niche. That’s right. Stop confining yourself to a box because sooner or later, you’re going to run out of air. That’s one of the many lessons I’ve learnt from Jon Morrow.
His advice is to ditch your niche because if you pick a niche and stay there, you’re limiting yourself in the same way you’d be limiting yourself of air if you shut yourself away in a box.
Sure, you could have a big box that’s got a lot more air inside it for you to keep going longer. But not much longer. A big problem that sticking to one niche is that it limits the amount of traffic you get.
If you want to get more traffic, you need to ditch your niche in favour of looking for people; individuals who have a problem that you can help them solve.
You see, the bloggers with the biggest, most engaged audiences, don’t confine themselves to niches. Once you’ve been around their blogs for a while and seen who they mix with and who they know, you discover they cross over into all kinds of industries, topics, interests and subjects.
For example, let’s say there’s a blogger who blogs about Social Media. Then there’s another blogger who blogs about Chinese Medicine as a healing alternative. Let’s say they’re both wanting to start their own podcast shows and they need to learn how to start podcasting.
Both have been looking round the web for someone who knows how to podcast and is doing it successfully right now.
Let’s say the @SocialMediablogger sees a tweet from the @ChineseMedicineblogger mentioning that they want to start podcasting does anyone know someone who can teach them how to do it.
@SocialMediablogger gets in touch saying “Me too. Let me know when you find someone.”
@ChineseMedicineblogger tweets back “You bet!”
Astute @Podcastingblogger has been watching out for people on Twitter who want to learn how to do podcasts. He or she gets in touch and tweets both @SocialMediablogger and @ChineseMedicineblogger and says …
Get the idea? This getting together of bloggers from different backgrounds and interests through a common problem they want solving and a solution is an example of how there are no borders out there. There are no limits.
Success is a community activity. It happens when people help each other out. No strings attached.
Remember this and start looking for bloggers you can get-together with to solve a common problem with. Bring other bloggers together. Introduce them to each other.
Believe me, you’ll start to get more traffic. Because you’ll be introducing more people to you and your solutions as well as other bloggers to each other.
And while you’re looking for other bloggers to form connections with and introduce to each other, here are some powerful resources that will give your efforts an extra boost …

How to Get Traffic to a New Blog
One big fact stands out above all others when your blog is new …
You not only want results quickly. You need to have results quickly.
If my 3 failed blogs have taught me anything valuable it’s this …
Nothing is more soul-destroying than starting a blog with the desire, goal and dream of making a living doing what you want to do above all else and an income out of it that supports you … Only to get zero response.
No traffic. No readers. No subscribers. No money. It’s horrible. And it results in more bloggers quitting than anything else.
What you need and want as a new blogger are results. These resources will get them for you (if you act on them)…

How to Get Traffic from Social Media
“You need to hear that your site is probably not worth most people’s time in its current form, and THAT is why you don’t have enough visitors. It’s not because you didn’t tweet enough last week, sorry.”
-Corbett Barr @CorbettBarr, fizzle.co
How relevant is your blog to the people you want to be visiting it, reading it, subscribing to it and buying your products or service?
This is a fundamental question you need to ask yourself.
Social media can be an easy of convincing yourself that you’re taking positive action to get traffic, readers, money by building connections and promoting your blog.
Not so. Social media cannot replace creating real meaningful, relevant content that actually gives people what they want and gives them the tools and steps that will get them to the results, outcomes and destinations they desire.
As Corbett Barr puts it bluntly in his post Why Every “Twitter Tips” Article You’ve Ever Read is Essentially Worthless (or Worse), there is no substitute for real hard graft and useful content. Unless you take time to create it, every minute you spend on social media is a waste of time …

If your traffic and readership is stalling it’s a good bet that you’ve stopped being useful to your audience.
Ongoing success online depends on engagement. Nurture your audience, your readers. Every single one of them. Keep giving value. Yes, some readers will leave. You may have given them everything they wanted and now they’re off to make it on their own. That’s success!
But often, if you’ve been getting traffic and growing your audience nicely, discovering a back-slide can be a big blow.

How to Get Traffic That Converts
Getting traffic doesn’t mean much if it doesn’t stay long enough to read anything, or buy anything.
Traffic that comes then goes away never to return wastes a lot of your time. Because you have to spend too much time finding this kind of traffic then persuading it to visit your blog.
Far better, and more astute thing to do is to go after traffic then keep it. That means you converting it. These incredibly powerful traffic resources posts show you how to do this …

How to Promote Your Blog
If no one knows about your blog it’s not hard to conclude that you won’t get traffic.
If you want people to come and read your blog you need to tell them about it. Better still, you need to get other people to tell them about your blog. The more influence each of these “other people” have, the more people will listen to them and come to check out your blog.
Promotion means that you need to tell people about your blog AND, you need to get influential bloggers to tell people about your blog too (and you can do this by writing great content.).
It all starts by understanding how to promote actively and smartly …

What you really need are readers. Yes, traffic is what introduces people to what you’ve got to offer, just as shop windows let passers-by know what’s on offer inside.
But unless you write about topics those “passers-by” want to read – again and again – they’ll just pass by without even looking at your window display …

Blog Traffic: Case Studies
At school case studies bored me rigid.
Reading about how Giant Corp Ltd did whatever to whoever for whatever meant nothing to me because it didn’t relate to anything I wanted to do.
Searching for how to get traffic to make my blog work has taught me that case studies are one of the best ways to learn how to do exactly that.
The best lesson I’ve learnt that’s changed my view of case studies is that readers want to read about how to actually put strategies into action and get results out of. (It’s what’s inspired me to use this blog, Traffic Smart Marketing, as one big case study – a look-over-my-shoulder and see what I’m doing example of how to put the strategies I’ve learnt into play.). Because the best way of doing learning is to see what strategies successful people have used and how they’ve got them to work.
So, aim to create some case studies of your own for your blog. Pitched right (and on topics your readers are most interested in) they can rank amongst your most popular posts.
Here’s some case studies that inspired me and which I know will inspire you.

Well it’s nearly the end of this giant traffic resources post so I want to say “Thank-you” to each and everyone of these top influential bloggers who, through these posts and through their blogs, are helping me (and now you) turn my dream of having a successful, popular blog into reality. I know you’ll get as much value, inspiration and know-how out of them as I have.
I got the idea for creating this resource post from Derek Halpern of SocialTriggers.com who’s created this incredibly useful resource guide to get more Twitter followers that I recommend highly if you want to really get the best out of Twitter. Thanks Derek :).
To find really useful content that gives you the steps, tools, tips, techniques you need to take the frustration out of getting traffic to your blog is hard.
There’s a lot of crap out there.
A lot of copy-cat, trendy and jump-on-the-band-wagon crap.
But, there’s also a lot useful, breath-taking content out there too just as this giant post shows (when you discover the gems – the bloggers who matter).
You’ll notice some of these 101 Incredibly Powerful Traffic Resources posts come from the same few bloggers. It’s because they write a lot of amazing posts.
And So, It’s Your Turn
Are you ready to take your blog from invisible to popular?
It’s a challenge. But one that I know that you’re up to and ready to accept. Because you’re smarter than most bloggers out there. You’re smarter and you’ve got the guts to reach out for opportunities that come your way.
It’s time to stop being frustrated, to stop being disappointed, to stop feeling you’ve failed and that your dreams of changing lives and making something of your own that brings you recognition and rewards you deserve is just some silly delusional thinking.
Because it’s not, is it?
It’s a real-live desire and goal. Right?
You want to make this work for you and for all the people you know you can help and solve real problems for and bring in to your ideas, skills, know-how and creativity.
It’s time to stop being limited and broken down by the crap out there. It’s time to stop forcing yourself to be “realistic” and face up to your “responsibilities” because, let’s face it, who’s realism and responsibilities are they talking about anyway? Certainly not yours, right?
Because you know that with the right resources, the right advice, the right people by your side, that you can make it. That you can take what you have, or what you know about, or can share with others and turn it into real resources of your own that others can use and get results from too, right?
It’s time. It’s your time. Your time to stop being invisible and to start finding popularity amongst the people who’s lives you can change, in however small or large a way.
It’s your time. And there a lot of good and generous people out there ready to help you and see you succeed. Start your success here by reading and sharing these resources with others – the people you know, who follow you on Twitter and Facebook.
And you can leave me a comment in the Comments section below to tell me how you want to start becoming popular and what resources are helping you get there.
Share your dreams and your goals here and let’s start helping each other find the resources and the know-how to make the difference they long to make, because …
It’s your time to start making the difference you’ve always wanted to make.
Are you ready to accept the challenge?
