  6. Be Present on Social Media SitesWe all know that social media sites are being used by many as a means of communication. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are just some of the most used social media sites these days and sharing your latest updates over these platforms will help you generate traffic on your website.
  7. Seek for a Blog Carnival: Whatever your niche is, a blog carnival surely has the proper category for you. And when you submit your blog site in here, you will then be featured in their list of eligible blog sites.
  8. Do some link building:  Submit some of your written articles on several web 2.0 sites and use some hyperlink that will direct a potential reader to be directed on your specified landing page.
