Increasing blog traffic without the help of traffic exchange sites is really a difficult task. Recently,I applied for adbrite and they disapproved my blog.The reason stated was "Paid To-Click/Read/Search/Surf".I don't know what it means. But everybody's opinion is that it is because of using traffic exchange sites to increase blog traffic. So i just want to know the methods and the best ways to increase traffic without the help of traffic exchange sites. I know that many mylot members have a good traffic in their blog and so please let me know how you did it? I will rate the best response and will be thankful to you if you respond as soon as possible.

Content is king. If you have good content, people will go to your blog and read about it.

I agree with you on that part. The problem I see is you can have the best content and if no one knows you are there no one will see it. I would love to know how to do this.

I want to pay attention to the responses you get here because I have no idea. You can have great content but without the traffic no on will know.

As I read down the replies, I was wondering if you had thought of trying Twitter as well. I am there and I see people saying read my blog all the time on every page. There are ways to get your followers up and it's actually pretty easy to find people it just takes some time. I think it must be working for people because of all the people on there.

I used twitter too, but as my tweets where only related to my website, my account was suspended! :( Maybe also because there was great difference in the number of ppl I followed towards the people that followed me...So don't rush with twitter, one step at a time, in order not to get your account suspended! :)

Wow I didn't think that was possible. I wouod thing the people that just tweet their day wouod be the ones with that problem. I am still learning the ins and outs of Twitter to tell the truth. I really do not have anything to promote atthis time just a suggestion from time to tme. I have been spending my time there finding and following people.

Ok, I don't know many things about that, but what I do to drive traffic is posting on other websites or networks! Of course only to those that will allow my posts and are relevant in order to drive targeted traffic! :) And I use facebook a lot for that :) You could search for relevant groups and post there!

I think you should try entrecard.com, that should immediately bring some traffic to your site. I will say this though, any 'artificial' means to bring traffic to your site is not targeted traffic, so don't expect to make a single penny from it. The best, and most profitable way is by having good search engine friendly content, that way you get targeted traffic to your site and can make some money from them.
