Blog Traffic Tips for 2013!

Even in this new year of 2013, we are striving and working our buts off to increase our traffic to our blogs.

It is a never-ending journey and a journey that has so many turns and twists.

I say it this way because if you have no strategy in driving traffic to your site, then you are not going to increase those numbers in your Google analytics dashboard.

As you pat down a strategy for increasing your traffic as a blueprint for a house, you will come to realize it is not quite like a solid blueprint.

You re-edit, add, take off, increase a certain activity, and so on…

You get the point!


As 2013 rolled in, also Google rolled in with a few updates of its own such as Panda and Penguin.

As I am reading about these updates and hearing so many horrible/wonderful stories from many webmasters, it makes me think about and come to a conclusion that it is all about “quality”.


“Quality” rules the game in SEO and the traffic that you need to create this year!


High quality work produces high quality results which in turn will give you the quality traffic that needs to be on your blog!


I warn you that building very good traffic in this day and age, will be harder than ever.

But trust me and many others who have done it, it is still possible to build a high number of visitors to your blog and get more followers.


But you may be saying, “I am already building traffic through these same exact tips in this article.”

You actually may be doing these techniques, but your tapping only onto the top-level and not really getting your hands dirty.

There is more digging to be done into more advanced levels of these traffic tips!

If that doesn’t make sense to you, it will make much more sense as you continue to grow your specific channels of driving quality traffic through these same techniques and continue to teach yourself ways to achieve even greater results through them.


What is nice about this article is that I went ahead and created an amazing infographic that explains what blog traffic tips you can follow in 2013!

If you own a blog, please don’t hesitate to publish this infographic on your own blog and share the blog traffic tips of 2013!

    I think I will setup some kind of RSS reader that will notify me instantly and I can go and make a good comment.

    • Samuel Pustea

      Yes, that is the secret way of getting traffic from commenting :)

      Thanks for the comment Keral and work hard!

    Hi Samuel

    Cheers! for sharing the info. What does quality of content mean? Does it mean the content that presented well or a content thats has been posted first by me on the internet? I see a lot of tips and tricks on blogging and even everyone has a same base then why one leads and the other lacks behind

    • Samuel Pustea

      Quality content Mridula, is content that is exclusively written by me and is presented with well-research and with your best writing.

      For all the tips out there, many opinions exist man :)

      Everyone says a different thing,maybe just because it works for them!

      Find you own way and base your structure on what works for you,

      Hope that helps!

  3. Chatung

    I too agree with the point that SEO in 2013 is more tougher and will be go on and on..!
    I have one doubt regarding the Quality content Issue, Can we really justify the content’s quality based upon its number of words..??
    You see, my blog is about poems and short messages (Or say Quotation)….
    Kindly clarify ..

    • Samuel Pustea

      Hi Chatung, thanks for visiting the blog!

      Quality is not based on the number of words you put on your computer screen.

      Quality is always based on how well you can write no matter how many words you put down.

      It can be shot or long – both ways need to have quality writing, not quantity!

      Hope that helps man :)

  4. Sarah

    In my opinion SEO is becoming more tougher day by day. I am finding more ways for direct quality traffic like this one “blog commenting”. :D So my question is do you think only this technique is enough or should I’ve to find other ways too? if yes then if you don’t mind please mention some.

    • Samuel Pustea

      SEO is getting tougher but at the same time it is giving us a chance to rank higher quality content of ours!

      Blog commenting is a good start but you eventually will need more ways to generate traffic.

      Start also with guest posting and forum posting, see how that works for you…

      Thanks for the comment Sarah :)

  5. Robert Weller

    Hey Samuel,
    good tips you bring up here. Guest blogging and long tail keywords do really seam to be performing well.

    But “strategic commenting” sounds a bit too much like marketing to me but I understand what you mean. Actually you’re quite right!

    • Samuel Pustea

      Yes they are and both need to be used extensively by bloggers.

      Comment marketing could be the term you can use. :)

      Whatever it is, do well!

      Thanks for the comment man!

  6. Vineet Saxena

    Hi Samuel,
    This is true that building traffic is going to be harder than ever with Google constantly cracking down on webmasters and bloggers.
    Blog commenting and guest blogging can definitely boost the traffic give that you provide quality in your posts and comments.

    • Samuel Pustea

      Google is doing what they need to be doing.

      Regulating quality.

      And that is what we need to be doing as well.

      Find quality methods in generating traffic and work hard for each technique,

      Thanks for the comment Vineet!
