3 Simple Ways to Drive Massive Traffic to Your Blog!

{this post may contain affiliate links}

How do you drive a large amount of (quality) traffic to your website without putting in a ton of work? Isn’t that the question most new bloggers want answered? Or all of us for that matter! I know that was my problem my first year of blogging. I felt like I was doing everything I could, posting everywhere I could and I still wasn’t getting a lot of traffic.

There are 3 super simple ways to drive traffic to your site!

Step 1: Participate in Facebook Groups!

Yes you have all heard me say this before, but I am saying it again! Why? Because Facebook Groups are one of the keys to having your pins go viral! Facebook Groups are awesome when you want to find someone to collaborate with or guest post on another blogger’s blog. They are a fantastic place to ask questions and gain advice! And 99% of them do daily re-pin threads.

What is a re-pin thread? It’s a thread within the group, where you post a link to one of your pins that you want re-pins on. You re-pin however many pins within the thread that the rules state (it’s usually 5-10) and then people will reciprocate. This is a great way to have your pin go viral! And when your pin goes viral your stats shoot through the roof!

Step 2: Participate in Pinterest Group Boards!

Just think about it. You pin one of your pins to a group board that has over 10,000 followers; 10,000 people can see your pin and re-pin it! Then once they re-pin it, all of their followers see your content and so on. The very first thing I do when I write a new blog post, is create a new pin. Then I pin that pin to all 45 of my Pinterest group boards. Within an hour I always have 100+ re-pins. Then I log onto Facebook and participate in as many re-pin threads as I can! I have had pins go viral in less than 24 hours because of these groups.

I push Pinterest so much because Pinterest is so so underestimated, but it is such a HUGE TOOL when it comes to driving traffic. Traffic from people who are interested in your content!

Step 3: Comment on other bloggers blog posts (stay within your niche)

So I know this step seems silly but it works pretty well! Whenever you leave a comment on another bloggers post, in the spot where you are required to type your name, put your name and your sites name too!

It will look like this:

I can’t for the life of me think of the name for the | symbol but it looks much better and much less spammy than the @ symbol.  To get the | symbol to appear hold down “alt” then type 124. This has worked pretty well for me and I get a pretty good amount of traffic back to my site!

That is why it’s good to comment on a blog within your niche. Then their readers will be more inclined to read your info!

If you want more info on what Facebook Groups and Pinterest Group Boards to join, and how to join them, check out my eBook ‘Pinterest Ninja’ you can click HERE to read more about the book! My book includes over 60 groups to join (all accepting contributors) direct links and who to email to get an invite. I have done ALL the hard work for you!

It’s as simple as that!

    Great tips!! I need to join a travel Pinterest group board soon.

  2. Thank you for these tips! I have been working on all three at time, but especially want to start focusing on Pinterest groups. Can’t wait to read you other posts

  3. Tara says:

    There is so much for me to learn about driving traffic with social media! It’s overwhelming, but your Pinterest ideas are helpful. And I like the not-using-an-ampersand thing. 😉

  4. I love commenting on other bloggers’ posts. It helps build a community and I think it helps the bloggers keep going and not feel like they are writing for nothing.

  5. Christi says:

    I love these tips. I just found out about group boards, wow, what have I been missing! Thanks for the post

  6. Christine says:

    Whew…I’m glad that I am doing all 3 of these things. These are great tips! Everyone wants more traffic. I’m a bit stuck now. I think I need some freebies or giveaways. Thanks for sharing. I pinned this earlier too. 🙂

    Great tips!

    I love your point about commenting on other people’s blogs that are within your niche (or at least a topic you’re interest in!!!!) So many people end up leaving pointless comments on other bloggers’ posts because they have no interest in the post itself but want to be seen to be networking and supporting other bloggers.

    I’m just starting out with Pinterest Group Boards. I’ve seen a significant increase in my stats in the couple of months that I’ve been experimenting with them.

    Thanks for sharing

  8. These very good tips! I’m picked up on a few and will on others. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Good advice. We need to be careful about the group we join too. Because there are some that have members who do not reciprocate shares and comments and support. But if it’s a good group, it is a definite asset. Thank you for the advice.

  10. So simple and doable! Although I have tried these all before I haven’t used it to it’s full potential. Well done!

    Great tips. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  12. Mistle says:

    Yes to all of these! I have found that joining fb groups have been key to getting more traffic to my blog.

  13. I’m so happy that you didn’t give a long list of to dos. These tips are surely the highest leveraging ones, thanks so much.
    I have made a point that when as bloggers we do read a lot of posts frequently, for learning something, for inspiration or whatever reason, so whenever I read one, I tell myself I can’t leave it unless I’ve added my two cents or view point into the discussion. Two stones with a shot.

      Thank you so much Hena!

  14. These are the fundamentals of building a network within your niche that most new bloggers often underestimate. Let’s remember that the more blogger friends we have, the more views that our blog will receive.

    All the Best,

  15. Thanks for a very informative article 🙂 And if it hasn’t been mentioned before, the | symbol is called a pipe. This is the best tip I’ve read in a long time! Thanks again.

      Thanks Debb!!!!

  16. Hello, this is a good post. Thanks for sharing but I have a quick question and I hope you can help. I am wondering how you share your pin to all 45 group boards at once? Wouldn’t that get you in trouble or marked as spam? Do you have a technique of some kind or something to avoid it posting on your pin thread 45 times in a row? I would love to know because I want to do the same but I don’t know how to do it without making a mess of my profile threads and ticking off my regular followers. Can you Advise? Thanks
