Opportunity #1: Quora – Go to Quora and respond to all of the questions people are asking within your space. If you can plug in links that a relevant to the answer (such as ones from your website), you’ll notice that it’s a quick way to get a few thousand visitors per month.

Opportunity #2: Subreddits – Participate on Reddit. The more you get involved the more clout you will have on Reddit.

There is a section on Reddit for your industry. Submit content from your site as well as other sites on Reddit. This can drive tens and thousands of visitors assuming Reddit likes the content you are submitting.

Opportunity #3: Forums – A lot of popular forums exist on the web. Find forums within your industry and participate. Respond to questions people are asking.

Every time you answer a forum thread make sure you have a signature. Within the signature should be a link back to your website.

Opportunity #4: LinkedIn – You can publish your content on LinkedIn. Take your blog content, publish the first few paragraphs and add a “click to continue reading” link at the end. If people want to read the rest they can click through over to your blog.

This has helped me generate over 30,000 visitors a month from LinkedIn.

Opportunity #5: Niche blogs – Every industry has niche blogs. Not the TechCrunch’s of the world, but the small ones.

Participate on these blogs and leave comments. When leaving a comment you can add your URL and it will drive traffic back to your site.

Make sure the comments you are leaving are thoughtful.

Opportunity #6: StumbleUpon – It’s not the most popular social network but it can still drive you thousands of visitors.

You can buy clicks for pennies on the dollar through StumbleUpon Ads.

If you want free traffic all you have to do is use their toolbar.

Opportunity #7: Facebook groups – Similar to fan pages there are a lot of popular groups within your space. Help people within the groups and respond to their questions.

As you respond to questions, feel free and link to your site if it is relevant and will help others.

Use those 7 tactics and you will generate more traffic to your site.

  4. Hi Neil! It awesome to hear you speak. Great stuff. How much time you devote to answer people during a day?

  5. Neil, most Facebook group admins don't allow sharing links. They build those groups to promote their businesses and don't want their members to click away to others.

  6. Thanks Neil! I recently beat my own record of 126,000 QUORA answer views in 1 week! I'm just about to break 500,000 total views and I'm getting hundreds of up votes. I first learned about Quora in a meaningful way from you. Thank you so much for that!

    I made this Quora Top 3 Tips Video the other day and I feature you in it. Is it ok that I used your image at the begining of the video and quote from your blog? https://youtu.be/caFWUn5SOvw

  9. If I post my link on stumbleupon. How it reaches the people. I don't have even single follower for my profile. Then, how can I drive traffic to my site

  10. one of the best one from Neil, keep up the good work πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  11. Great Video. You are the inspiration for me. Thanks for always helping us

  12. How do you find blogs in your niche that accept comments?
    You can find blogs with open comments using this search footprint which seems to work for me: (your keyword here) "1..100 comments"

    For example: business coaching "1..100 comments"

    I got the 'range' operator (1..100) because if the blog has 0 comments, then they probably don't accept any comments at all. I found it here: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/2466433?hl=en

  13. If I do a guest post on another blog, would you recommend posting some of the article on Linkedin as well?

  14. Neil, how may hours per week would you recommend spending on these platforms? -Anand.
