After launching a new website, you probably want other websites to link to it. The only problem is that new websites usually receive very few visitors. How are you going to convince popular and well-established websites to link to your new website?
Firstly, never accentuate that your website is new. Instead of saying ‘new’ and ‘inexperienced’ to describe yourself or your website, use words such as ‘fresh’ and ‘innovative’.
Secondly, offer the websites from which you want to receive links something in exchange for linking to you. Offer to write an article about that website if its webmaster chooses to place a link pointing to your website. Alternatively, you can choose to promote the website in many other ways.
Lastly, make sure to emphasize how other webmasters can benefit by linking to your website. Remember to emphasize the fact that everything they will receive will be for free. The only thing they will have to do is link to your website.
The topic of attracting free traffic is very popular among bloggers. That is because everyone wants to know how do attract the highest number of visitors possible. In this article, I am going to share with you what works best for me. I am also going to discuss other methods that look like they could work, which I did not try yet.
1. Regularly visit other blogs. Whenever you visit a blog, try to leave a comment. In the blogosphere, the more a person is well known and active, the more he will gain. Join communities like MyBlogLog, Bumpzee, and Blogcatalog if you have time. Many bloggers have widgets of these communities on their sites, and if you are a member of these communities as well, your picture will appear among the recent visitors.
2. Comment a lot. Very often, when I look for new blogs to visit, I open a popular blog with a lot of visitors, and I check who commented there. By visiting the blogs of top commentators I am likely to attract to my own blog those who enjoy commenting. They might be later commenting on my own blog.
3. Write high quality posts. Sooner or later, other bloggers will start referring to you, and the word about your blog will spread.
