      Hi Manpreet,

  14. Hello Nikhil,

    A very nice and informative post. And to be true there were plenty of tips to increase traffic to our blog.

    The best thing is you even mentioned the websites you claimed to get huge traffic. Though a little disappointed you didn’t mentioned

    But from my personal experience I would like advice bloggers. Do not try all of these methods at once; you’ll literally fail at all of them. To start with you can use Facebook groups related to your niche and even use document sharing sites like Scribd where you can convert your article to PDF format and submit there. Even slideshare is an amazing technique to try something new and get quality and targeted traffic.

    I suggest new bloggers try for guest blogging only after their blog is 3 months old. So in these 3 months you get a hang of what blogging really is and what other bloggers expect from you.

    Anyways have a great day mate and thanks for the article.

    PS: I found this post submitted on where I have commented and Kingged this post.

    • Nikhil says:

      Hi Abhishek,
      Thank you for your honest comment. Sorry for not mentioning in the list because that time I’m not aware about it and have mention very few websites. Your advice for bloggers is very useful and scribd and slideshare are great options.
      Thank you for the suggestion for bloggers….
      I hope you like our post. Thank you. Have a great day. :)
