Lets get back to the main topic, how can we get targeted referral traffic?

Top 10 Method to Get Steady Referral Traffic to Your Website

1. Give Your Suggestions on Question and Answer Sites

I like this part the more, these questions and answers blogs seems to rank within 48 hours! I have used yahoo answer to get very targeted traffic to my brand new website. Also sites like Answer.com and Quora.com is a sure place of getting real referral traffic. A lot of people ask thousands of questions everyday on different category and you can become helper for them. Find your niche and give them quality answer, you can of course add your website link every now and then. But don’t spam everywhere with your link or you are going to get banned!

2. Social Bookmarking Sites

Reddit, stumbleupon and Delicious are the most popular social bookmarking website for now where you can start a new journey of getting referral traffic and see how much traffic you can generate to your website in a very short period of time.

3. Comment on Popular Blogs and Forums

One way to get refferal traffic is through commenting on popular blogs on your niche and also on forums were you are allowed to place your link on your signature. If you are too busy, you can outsource our commenting to someone who will do it for you. I prefer CommentLuv enabled blogs which helps you to build do-follow links to your new posts and to the homepage.

4. Build Solid Email Newsletters List

If you are not creating your list, you are committing one of the worst blogging sin! According to research, email marketing covers about 14% of market share. If you have huge list of people who are subscribed to your list, you will see the magic of email marketing. In my opinion, this is one of the best method of getting VERY targeted referral traffic to your website or product page.
If you are shot of cash, you can use the following free Email Newsletter List Building sites.
www.FeedBurner.com and www.MailChimp.com

5. Make Videos and Publish Them

One of my video was ranking for “make money online free” and that brought lots of referral traffic to my website, i was even offer $$ per month to place a link on my description.
So Video blogging is getting popular, people love video tutorials more than plain text tutorial, personally whenever i need to learn something, i head over to youtube to find a video on it.
You can create and upload your own videos on video sites like YouTube, www.metacafe.com, Dailymotion and Vimeo and get quality referral traffic from these video sharing websites. Here is my list of high video sharing sites to upload your videos
Watermark your video to avoid it getting stolen! When creating your videos don’t forget to mention your website and links in the video and also put your site link in the description.

You can choose to buy video from fiver.com or if you want to do it yourself, while not? It is fun!

6. Make Use of Social Networking Sites

In this time, if you are not already making use of social networking sites, then you are missing out a lot. Grow your circle on this popular social network and if you are too busy, you can always hire VA to get it done for you. The top three social networks you need to stay active are Facebook.com, Twitter.com and Google+. If you are already on these networks then spread your coverage to LinkedIn and StumbleUpon too which is also a great source of getting referral traffic fro free.

7. Promote Your Website via Banner Ads

You want to get instant targeted referral traffic to your website/service? then buying banner ads on popular website is the way to go. Although it will be a little expensive, but if you get a website that receive a lot of traffic from search engine, then your money will be worth it. Also you need to buy from more than one website to track it and know which of them is sending junks to you. You can find this websites to place your ads by typing the keywords you want to target into search engine and then check the top 10 website to see if they accept advertisers. You can also use service like www.buysellads.com to get sites to place your banner. Google AdWords advertising is another way to reach your targeted audience and it is cheaper and very reliable.

8. Guest Blogging on Quality Sites

I don’t have to explain much here- Guest blogging is one of the oldest and working methods of getting referral traffic and it is approved by google! It is only guest blogging that is seen as whitehat. But if you are not too good with words, you might not get the opportunity to publish your guest post on authority website.
One of the thing i do when it comes to guest posting is to look for sites that ONLY accept paid/sponsored posts, this kind of sites has few outbound links or sites that are heavy-ly moderated. Not some fake sites that accept any spun/spin contents.

9. Submit Your Site to Popular Directories

This method is as old as the internet also, there are over hundreds of site directories where you can submit your website link and in return you will get referral traffic to your website.

10. Create Podcast

Thanks to marilyn cada for the contribution, podcast is yet another method to get quality referral traffic to your website and you can see a lot of top bloggers doing this already, you can read more on how to create podcast for beginners here.

Bonus:

Put Up Flyers

Another method to get referral traffic to your online business is by creating flyers with your website link on it and then Post it in public bulletin boards in places such as colleges, grocery stores and libraries, banks.
Add this together, and you will see how your online business will explode!

  1. This is really wonderful to know some best & great secrets to gain traffic for a website. I’m a Blogger & I have a Blog. My Blog was on top ranking before couple of few months But now it has very low traffic. Well I hope it this post will help me to increase traffic.

  2. Frank you need to go HEAVY on social these days. Google places a premium on getting social signals. If you are ready and willing to promote others, join tribes and be helpful you can generate serious blog traffic.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Nice one but I must confess, I can’t do all. I gave up forums and social bookmarking a while back. The methods that works for me are commenting, guest bloging and social media.

  4. great post, you really mentioned all here, there is no how a bloggers uses all this method and wont get a good traffic in response. thanks

    • Thank you Olu Bakare for the comment and i agree with you, there is no way you can do all this without getting traffic, i have the most success with yahoo answer and really recommend it.

  5. Hi Frank,

    Great tips here. I like everything that you’ve shared and is what most bloggers should implement. Thanks again for sharing!

  6. hello frank joseph. i think you need to add podcasts :) i wish i have a good video and audio recording equipment so that i can record high quality videos and audios and share it via youtube or any other podcasts networks :) to increase traffic to my blog, PR and Alexa Ranks

  7. Social Bookmarking has blessed some of my blogs with good traffic. Especially StumbleUpon! You know, I shared sports facts, memes etc on that blog. I’ve observed that such content gets good traffic from SU! I haven’t had the same level of success with reddit though!

    My next fav method is taking resort of social networking sites. Building up a newsletter subscription list is something I will work in the near future!

    Informative post :)

    Arun

    • Thank you for your contribution Arun, i have not have much success with SU, although reddit is doing well for me.
      Talking about list building, am going to do the same in the very near future just like you. Still using feedburner in almost all my sites. :D

  8. What would you consider a good conversion rate for activities related to number one? In the past I have been able to get thousands of views through Stumble Upon but very little to none as far as conversions!

  9. Hey Bro

    Great share which I’m involved with commenting on popular blogs,engaging with social bookmarking sites like reddit,stumbleupon,delicious receiving decent amount of traffic and presently started to contribute guest post hope this works too between enjoyed reading and found some useful source for traffic

    • Thank you Shameem for the comment, you are already using some of the powerful referral sites. Guesting posting is already making waves and i hear matt cutt is cooking something funny about it.

  10. Hi..Frank,

    Excellent tips. I really love this all things that you’ve included in this post. These all methods are such a great choice to get a good traffic to website.

  11. Hi,
    Thanks Frank for all your advices. I see that you really insisting on Yahoo answers to get more referral trafic, and it will be my priority, of course i will try others tips you mention.

  12. hi frank; thanks for the post. There wasn’t anything in here I’m not already doing. Of course, that doesn’t mean I’m doing them all correctly. smile I do okay on traffic and a lot of it is generated by my efforts. but we can always use more traffic. I noticed that you included reddit in the bookmarking sites. My brother has been preaching to me about reddit for a while now. I am a blind blogger. last week i checked out their site and was disappointed to find they don’t have a non visual captcha. that reminds me i tried your submitting pages to get them indexed by google. I used my latest post which is about me recording videos. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of results i get. I noticed that you mentioned fliers but didn’t suggest using a qr code so people who see the fliers can scan them with their smart phones. and I was wondering if you could tell me how to add links to my youtube videos. People keep saying just putting them in the description and mentioning them in the video isn’t enough. how about fan finder in youtube. well, I’m kind of late on videos and have a lot to learn. thanks for the post and the bonus free tip and take care, max

    • Thank you Maxwell Ivey for visiting moneyhomeblog and dropping your comment! I usually just add my link on the description and forgets about it, am not a big fan of videos and so never learn how to add my link on the video. I only create a few videos for all the websites i built.
      Reddit is working great for me and you would love it if you get involve…

  17. I’ve been using social bookmarks lately. I think it’s one of the most under utilized tools for SEO. Aside from optimizing your keywords and social media! Thanks for the great post!

  18. There are 3 things I haven’t done from your list. This is a podcast, banner ad and posting in directories. But I am blogging since 4 months and 20 days and I have a steady traffic around 2000 people a day minimum. These days since a post went viral on stumbleupon around 20-30 000 daily. So when I exclude these 3 things from the list, I’ve done everything else. And indeed that’s the right strategy. Nice article :)

  19. These are very good tips that you’ve given us, Frank. I do most of what you list here. It all takes time, doesn’t it, to get it all done. But it’s worth it. Thanks so much!
