This is an awesome list of resources from Brian Clark of Copyblogger: How to Attract Links and Increase Web Traffic – The Ultimate Guide. If you’re at all interested in generating more traffic and more links to your web site or blog, check out this post. I’ve read through a few of them (some of them I’ve come across before) and utilized some of the techniques with some pretty good success so far.
Since starting this blog less than a month ago, I’ve gone from around 20 to 30 unique visitors a day up to 246 yesterday. I’m not exactly sure of the reason for such a big spike, but the trend has definitely been upward. Some of the traffic has come from Problogger’s Group Writing Contest, of course. Some traffic has come from other things that I’ve done, though.
It’s taken me many hours of researching and trial and error to find out what works for building traffic. I know many of you are interested in the same things, so I’m going to put together a short guide to post in the next few days of some of the very basic techniques for getting more traffic and links. There are a ton of posts out there with a great deal of information, but I’d like to put together a sort of “Dummies” list for those of us who would just like the basics in a quick, distilled format.
Until then, if you’d like a whole bunch of links to wade through, check out Copyblogger’s comprehensive list.
