Is Getting More Traffic To Your Blog A Trickle or a River?

 

a trickle of water or a river getting more traffic to your blog

When you first start out getting more traffic to your blog can be a tedious and expensive process if you do not know which ways work the easiest and the best.  Not all are fast and easy to do, that will be the truth.  I have seen a lot of these types of programs, always wondered how the hell they could be free and still earn money.

I found that out pretty quickly as I am sure you have.  You can be getting more traffic to your blog using free sources as well.  I advise a little caution before you join a program that will cost you more than you will get out of it.  You can use these free sources without doing the ‘pro’ thing.  I do advise a little caution before you join and upgrade into a program that will cost you more than you will get out of it.

I think it only fair to review a couple for you and then you can make your own decisions.  Each of the ones I will be reviewing can have you getting more traffic to your blog, but you will have to do a little work to make this happen.  It is pretty easy, just could be a tad time consuming if you don’t have a ‘working daily schedule’ in place.  You should not be spending more than 30 min. a day using any traffic program.

Leads Leap

A Short Review:

LeadsLeap 2.0 is designed to cater to a wide range of audience.

You can become a traffic partner and affiliate. That’s where you can earn an affiliate commission for sharing the program with others.  Here is where it becomes important if you have your own website or blog.  Viewing others Ads is how you will earn credits so you can advertise.  A 5-second rule applies with this making it very easy and not too time-consuming.

If you can set aside 10 to 20 min. at the start of your day or at the end to view 10 + ads by members you are on your way.  Leads Leap makes this very easy to do.  You can even get credits if you rate the site you visited.  I have tried others that were similar and they were too complicated and the viewing times were not clearly visible so you could click and go to the next ad.

If you are a veteran marketer, make use of LeadsLeap to build yourself a huge network of leads.  They have marketers with 5 figure leads in their network, and they’ve only referred a few hundred people personally, not to mention that they are making nice commissions every month, for years!  How to pay for your advertising seems like a no brainer with Leads Leap.  It is a ‘Learn As You Earn’ system.

Very Quick Re-Cap:

  • set aside 20-45 min daily
  • 5-second viewing rules in place
  • Free to join ( upgrade is optional)
  • Affiliate program in place
  • eyes on your blog are from real people

I would rate LeadsLeap as a 5.5 *****out of 10**********

A Quick learning curve and but it can be time-consuming.  Perfect for new people who need traffic & who have little funds to pay for ads.  Whatever stage you are at, LeadsLeap could have something for you.

Cons

My biggest concern was seeing how quickly you lost your credits.  One day of not viewing and bada-boom they are gone and you are at 0 or -0 again.  This does nothing for your own ad as it is not being seen.  This is okay if you are at a point where you are not working on your website, perhaps it is a one-page site or landing page.  Then this works well because you would have more time to view ads every day.

TraffBoost  ( Traffic Boost)

Pretty simple to use and you can join free.  # Simple Steps Below:

1. Add your website

Sign up, add your website for free and get 500 bonus points.

Assign some points to your listing. Visitors earn these points from you when they visit your website.

2. Attract visitors

TraffBoost users prefer to visit websites that offer more points.

Assign more points to receive more visitors and display your listing on top in search results.

3. Collect points

Your website is visible as long as you still have points.  You will get an email alerting you before your points run out.  This gives you time to get back and earn a few more.

Visit other websites on TraffBoost to earn free points or buy points pack to keep your website visible.


TraffBoost.NET

Clearly one of the easiest I have used.  The format is clean, and you can see which websites are most active.  Several options allowing you to have your site more visible as well.  Perhaps this video will clear up any questions you may have.

Traffic Boost gets an 7 out of 10* 

The ease of use and getting set up is one of the best.  To make it even simpler, grab your coffee or lunch or maybe it’s snack time, but I think you get my point.  It does not take long to view 20 sites having lunch.  What I found so interesting was the sites I was viewing were giving me some great ideas about other offers and what could turn into some very interesting posts or articles.

I mean seriously!  Forex trading……..nadda………….how about some of the $1.00 options out there and Medical Marijuana?  Pretty interesting stuff and a lot to avoid if you are aware.  New people looking for honest, real business ideas don’t have a hope of knowing who to trust with some of the info I saw.

So, if you want to find some great ideas or even some affiliate programs you might be interested in. Traffic Boost certainly offered that.  You are viewing a site from 10-20 secs. and that is enough time to see more of what might be of interest.

It could also be enough time to put a cautionary note into your brain for those questionables you saw.

 

Last But Not Least is Global Money Line

There has been a bit of discrepancy on this one.  Money Line is, in fact, legitimate but it is time-consuming when you first get started.  Essentially what you are doing is viewing other members Ads for their programs.  You would write your own ‘SHORT’ ad, and depending on your membership level you can show or send your Ad to X number of members at one time.

This, of course, means the higher your membership, the more people you can reach faster!   It is actually really quite effective but does require a bit more time than is ideal if you are not sure on writing an Ad. This can take time if you don’t know how to be brief saying exactly what you need to convey.  Another little trick is to use letters like R instead of are, and U instead of You.  Gives you more room for the important stuff like your link.

The Plus side of Money Line is the membership is always a one time fee and fairly reasonable.  Free is great, just a bit more time-consuming so that gets a thumb down in my book.  I am all about simplicity and keeping it that way.  I do believe that once you are set up properly and you can see exactly how and what you need to do in the shortest amount of time, it would be awesome.

Have a look at this Video I found that explains things way better than I can.  We all need traffic or eyes on our websites and blogs and this is what I like to call my ‘Smart Alternative to Paid Advertising’.

Global Money Line your score today is   7 out of 10*  which keeps you in the running.

What Traffic Sites to Avoid

I don’t think it’s fair to list any because this is really more of a personal preference.  We all think differently so it makes sense we might like one traffic site over another one.  I can only share what I know has worked, if not for me, someone I know and trust.

What I would avoid are:

  • Facebook Groups that allow you to Post your Business Ads ( u are advertising to each other!! Um?)
  • Sites that require you to hook up and share with other site members.  Again, similar to #1 above
  • Anything that is overly time-consuming.  Your time is valuable so use it wisely.
  • Sites that allow any illegal activity or porn content should be avoided.

You have to think about those ‘eyes’ you want on your own site.  That is the primary purpose of using a traffic site.  When you don’t have the knowledge or money to place Ads then this is a great, no awesome, way to get started and get visitors to your site.

caution is advised when getting more traffic to your blog

You do have to be careful that your visitors are real people and not some cute little Bot running around too!  Google really frowns on these kinds of sites.  So, that means if you are looking at anything that is automated or says you can buy and download software to automatically get you the traffic you might want to back on out of there.  Think about this as a similar warning to what you see from your anti-virus software that is alerting you to a suspicious site!

One way to look at using traffic sites is if I found a few sites that were interesting and got my curiosity up, don’t you think your curiosity could too?  Or you maybe just get some new fresh ideas of things you can incorporate into your site!

 

I hope this short ‘Traffic Review’ was helpful or at the very least opened your eyes to a few fresh ideas of things you can do for free.  When you don’t have the extra coins in your pocket you have to do what you have to do to make it happen!

 

Keyboard hand-over time!!  I would love to hear your thoughts or maybe you have a free traffic site you would like to share.  The comments section is open just below for you or if you like easy, a like or share on one of the social icons would be awesome!  Go have an awesome day and thanks for being here.

    Hi Merry,

    This was a very interesting read. I’ve just started my own website and I am still learning all about the business. To be honest, I didn’t even know about these kinds of sites that boost your traffic. I’ve been doing it the old-fashioned way, doing a lot of hard work, trying to make it into Google’s good books. I’ll keep doing that, but I will also follow some of your advice here.

    Best, al

      Hi Al and thank you for taking the time to join my awesomer club leaving a comment.  Yes, a lot of people are under the impression ( I was too) that these traffic producing sites are just some scheme that wastes your time but in fact you can actually get a lot from them.  The trick is using your time wisely.
