    I have recently started a blog. I have got a domain name for it. And I would like to know if anybody can tell me how to increase traffic. I will be very grateful for your input.

    Increasing traffic is easy. Make quality posts, setup social media accounts, pay for promoted posts on facebook, gain a following and tada. You have traffic. It is not some simple poof and its there deal, it takes time and quality work to make a site successful.

    In my experience success lies in a good mixture, be prepared to spend a bit of money, both on semi-professional services and lower end services from places like Fiverr. But be wary of anything that seems too good to be true - as Josh says in the post before quality is very important, you can spend $5 on 1000 backlinks that are of no value to your ranking, or $50 on 10 that really help you out, it's about putting yourself out there, and trying things - but at the same time being sensible and managing your own expectations.

    Nowadays, social media can be a powerful tool for this - if you have accounts across Facebook, twitter etc, then it's certainly worth sharing on here every time there's a new blog post and such!

    I would echo what the others have said.

    I have only recently (this year) gotten back into the flow of webmastering. The only method that I have proved myself so far, is social media syndication.

    If you are starting up, I implore you to start social media accounts for your website. If you are a WordPress user, you can use the SNAP plugin to automatically share your posts to all of your social media accounts.

    If you use another system, there are ways to do the same through platforms such as bufferapp.

    After you are able to automate the syndication process, I recommend going to facebook, joining groups related to your audience, and sharing each of your page's posts to those groups.

    Using this method I was able to gain over 3,000 followers in two months from a start-up.

    Even further, after you have seen which of your posts perform well in the groups (likes, engagements etc.), you should boost that post as a facebook ad. I have had well performing posts gain over 500 egagements from just a $5 boost.

    Work with the keywords. People should feel that they just have to visit your website. Then it's very much about the content that you write. Look at the trends and write about things that are actual for people. What do people talk about? Also, as has been pointed out in this thread, you should share your posts on Social media platforms.

    Good advice from above writer. You should spread your work to different platforms. Youtube is a good example. As long as you know what people want to watch, for example "How to", and can create great videos there shouldn't be a problem for you to stand out. You can have links to affiliate websites that are related to your video. Let's say that you created a video about how to change a bicycle tire. Then you could have affiliate links in the video description where you direct people to websites that sell bicycle tubes. For every sale, you get a percentage. Also, you have options to promote your site with the help of Youtube. You could have a link to your website in the video description and in the video. This will boost your website traffic.

    Best of luck!

    You can increase your traffic by creating a better content marketing strategy, checking website traffic often, writing compelling blog headlines, using eye-catching photos, internal linking, sharing the content etc.

    Having a semi-autmated Social media setup will be a great way to get your website out there BUT if you dont have content that people need, then do not assume that people will go out of their way to read it.

    Don't forget the social media hashtags - using the top hashtags for any given post can boost the amount of people who see you very quickly.
