    • Traffic is the lifeline of your online business and it is one of the most important pieces toa successful blog. It doesnʼt matter how awesome your content is if not body sees it.You have to know how to drive a constant stream of high-quality targeted traffic to yourblog content. This post was designed to be a go-to resource giving you 101 ways bywhich you can Drive Unstoppable Traffic To Your Blog.There is a big difference between traffic and targeted traffic and it is better to get high-quality traffic than tons of visitors that are not 100% vested in the type of content youcreate. Before you begin to take action on implementing a blog traffic campaign, yourfirst step to is set goals. It is important that you know the following: • Who are the people that will be best served from my content? • What problems and challenges do they face? • Can the information I provide help them solve there problems? • How much traffic do I need to drive to my blog each day to generate X amount of income? • What products and services will I recommend or promote? • How will I convert visitors to leads?For example, if you are building traffic for your new “information product” site you wantto attract visitors who not only need your product but have the means to buy your
    • product. Using your time and money attracting visitors who do not have purchasingpower is a sure way to kill your business fast. The same applies to your blog. You wantlaser targeted traffic from the search engines and social media networks that convertinto sales.Ask yourself the following test questions:Money Question – Is there anyone out there already promoting something similar?Passion Question – Is my prospect experiencing BIG pain or BIG desire s/he wants toeliminate or satisfy?Urgency Question – Is my prospect already actively looking for solutions?Access Question – Are there enough people looking for this solution AND can I easilyfind and reach them online.If the answer is yes to all of these questions, then you are working within a niche that iscapable to driving the type of traffic that will make you money.So now that we have determined that there is traffic to be gained, letʼs start with mytraffic generation list for your blog. As I come across additional sources for traffic…I willadd them to the list. Again, feel free to bookmark this page or print this list out so youcan reference it in the future.101 Unstoppable ways to drive blog traffic1. Create quality content:Content is the new currency. The actual content within your website is extremelyimportant when it comes to web traffic. You MUST keep your content fresh, unique andkeyword rich. Search engines can distinguish between junk sites loaded with poorcontent so that they can get better rankings and high quality content sites. So whateveryou do, keep your content relevant, keep it high quality and make sure you get yourkeyword phrases in without sacrificing the overall experience of your readers.2.

Other keyword tools which will give you better long tail keywords areMarket Samurai and also SEOBook Keyword Tools.5. Forum marketing: Most people discount forum marketing because theyʼre too busy searching for the nextfuturistic strategy.  But Iʼm here to tell you that forum marketing is one of the FASTESTways to drive laser-targeted traffic to your website.

If you are doing a “Top 10Bloggers” type of post make sure to include images and links back to the bloggers site.You will also want to let them know youʼve added them to your list – itʼs a great way toget them to share it with their network.9.
