If you’ve been here before then you’ve probably noticed that I’ve mentioned something that’s often called “Blog hopping“. If you don’t know what this is, it’s basically just a method of driving traffic by hopping from one blog to another, leaving your comments and your website link. In fact, I actually made a blog post about this subject here. This is kind of a follow-up to that post.
Now, an important thing to bear in mind is, when I say that you leave your website link, there is usually a field that you can fill in that’s specifically designed for your website link. Absolutely do NOT spam your blog link, or anything link for that matter, on someone else’s blog. If you are going to leave a comment then make sure that it is relevant and is a genuine contribution, not just an excuse to drop a link. Of course we’re doing this, just like anything else, with the ultimate aim of it helping our business, but like everything else that I teach or endorse, you absolutely must engage in this ethically and give something of value. Even if it’s just a note of thanks for the person’s post, pointing out a part of the post that you especially found helpful or enjoyable, then that’s fine.
Blog Hopping Tips
Okay, so how can you go about this? Well I’ve made a tutorial video that explains how I approach this method. Take a look below and I hope that you find the content helpful.
Consistency is Key
Whilst this approach is effective, it does require some work and an investment of time. But you absolutely must stick at it, just the same as with any of the free methods that you may employ to drive traffic. As soon as you slacken off with these traffic-driving methods your traffic will drop off too.
Set yourself a period of time each day for blog hopping, likewise doing the same for forum contributing. Again, notice that I used the word “contributing” and not “spamming”. Spamming will get you nowhere fast so please do not be tempted to do it. Just concentrate on getting involved, contributing and providing value and you will naturally gain exposure, trust and traffic.
I hope you enjoyed the video. Please leave a comment below 🙂
