I'm often asked how to drive more traffic to a blog and my initial response is that you have to post on your own blog consistently and constantly.
However, there are other ways and one of them is to post on other blogs...and I don't mean commenting on blogs (which I often refer to as blog outreach). I mean being a guest blogger on influential blogs in your niche. I confess that it's not something I do a lot of though I am a guest author on Social Media Examiner and for several years I had a regular blog column on AllBusiness.com.You might have heard of my friend and blogging consultant, Chris Garrett. He wrote the Problogger book with Darren Rowse. Chris is a very smart guy, a thorough teacher, and I read his stuff religiously.
Well he has a new ebook out that tells you everything you need to know to get quality authority links and a boost in traffic, all through a quick and easy approach to guest blogging.
Right now he is offering it for the crazy low introductory price of only $7! I thought this was a bit crazy when Chris told me and this price is sure to go up within days as the reviews and testimonials start to pour in, so make sure you grab your copy and check out all the bonuses fast.
Check it out here. This is a terrific way to establish yourself quickly as an authority in your niche, boost your visibility and drive more traffic back to your home base.
UPDATE: Be sure to read the comments to get some additional guest posting ideas!
