    How to get website traffic is the question that most of the people ask who have their website or into this field. I too believe that content is the king. Content is important thing that values to all whether you are writing a blog or selling a product or service. And the above mentioned tips are very effective if done in a systematic manner.

  12. Hi Bashir,

    Sorry for coming in late this time – I guess travelling with family has one drawback that you can’t keep uptodate with all posts you otherwise read – though I’m glad I’m here now :)

    You mentioned the simplest and easiest way to get free traffic to your site. While I follow all of these, I’ve yet to try out giveaways and contests. I think what works best for me is the relationships I’ve built with fellow bloggers who have become more of friend’s now, and their visits to my blog, along with their comments and thereafter sharing my posts with their friends – gets me most of my traffic. One cannot deny the power of social media, but for that you need to place your posts and share them on the social medias too, and that does take a little bit of time, but it’s surely worth it.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day ahead :)

    • Bashir Ahmed says:

    Hi Bashir, Great post…At a time when every blogger out there is creating quality content, a little edge over the competition is very much essential…Tactical social media management is very vital..A lot of businesses have driven huge traffic through social media campaigns and made thousands of dollars…SEO is slowly deteriorating because there is lot of uncertainty over the positions and rankings..But social media delivers consistent traffic if the campaigns are executed well.

  18. Stacey says:

    I agree Bashir. These sums up all the basic qualities every article/post much have to drive traffic. Let me also reiterate the importance of ensuring the right grammar, spelling, and sentence construction as these simple things are often overlooked. Neglecting them could severely affect credibility and authority of the author. Thanks for the share.
