How To Gain More Blog Traction With Less Effort

The average blogger spends around 3 hours on getting his article read. Recent studies from blog polls show that the outcome is about 40-80 visitors a day.
So, how can you create more traffic for your blog, without wasting critical time you could use for creating good content?
In this article i will give you some tips and tweaks that help you get more traction with less effort.
1. Don't prostitute for views
We could also call this the “Don't be angry at friends that don't like to read your articles” rule.
Everyone has this one friend who completely ignores your social media activity.
This doesn't mean he/she doesn't like you, it just means that a given topic might not be that interesting to him/her or just there's just no time to engage in it. So, don't make reading your articles a favor, find the people who appreciate your writing.
If you want to attract a certain group of readers, write something they care about and then share it with them.
2. Link building is dead
Back in the old days setting links on your website created huge traffic on your blog. This way of SEO is dead. Since the new Google penguin update (release April 24th) it seems like Google doesn't care that much about link velocity any more. They are now confident enough to prefer good written content on certain topics to articles with a lot of interlinkage. This is something many SEO people in my surrounding noticed when their SEO businesses started struggling last month.
There is no need for link spreading anymore, being particular about what and where to spread matters again. So stop the link spamming.
3. Get your articles on Newsgrape
If promoting your content consumes so much time, why not let somebody else do the job for you?
The Newsgrape platform has a wordpress plugin to automatically sync your content with a large community without having duplicate content issues.
What happens with your article:
1. Newsgrape connects your articles with similar ones. Meaning: If somebody reads a topic connected to yours, they will see your article pop up at “related articles”. Cool about that: They are more likely to be genuinely interested and appreciative of what you have to say.
Newsgrape informs readers with certain interests that articles have been written about those given topics. This means, if you write something of popular interest, you have the chance of attracting over 5000 currently active readers on the site.
4. Automate your social media appereance
Its good to have a constant information flow about your website going on out there. But don't waste every single day on setting up new facebook and twitter updates - use tools to automate your appearance. Of course there are thousands of plugins for wordpress, but i will give you two powerful tools you can use with any blog:
Twitterfeed  - is the most automated system to do so. It creates twitter, LinkedIn and facebook updates by crawling your feeds. You can customize your updates a lot, for example how often and how many articles it should publish and define prefix/suffix etc.

Buffer - You have a productive week ahead of you? Fill your Buffer with twenty to forty updates, define the frequency and you are set to go.
Of course you can connect your social media accounts with Newsgrape as well.
To wrap it up
Don't prostitute, no SEO bulls%*&, connect with distributors and last but not least automate your social media appearance.
