6. Visit other sites, blogs, forums

Try to add unique content to other sites by participating in forums or blogs related to your own blog. Leave constructive comments on blogs similar in content to your own. Traffic will increase to your own web site because you can include a link back to your own site at the end of your forum post or blog comment.

You receive web traffic when ezines publish your content because you can include a link to your site in your resource box at the end of each article.
