Many bloggers quit blogging because they were failed to generate traffic on their blog. This is the big reason behind the failure in blogging.
Your blog maybe has good designs, Maybe your content is awesome but if you don’t know how to drive internet traffic to your website then your blog design and how much useful your content is? doesn’t matter.
Let imagine, A shop has been opened in your area (where you live) that shop is a garments shop and wants to sell clothes. but the first day they were not able to get any single customers or did not sell any single unit. they wait for some more days, after 3 to 4 days people start visiting their shop and purchasing items but the numbers of the customers were too low. The customers are their neighbors and people who saw that shop in their locality.
So now they wanted to increase their sales. they make banners, advertise their shop, offer attractive discounts on their clothes. The Numbers of Customers boost very well and the sales as well. and now they are earning well from their shop.
Today I have a list of methods which can help you to increase your traffic.
