Participating in Question Answer Websites
I personally love this method to drive traffic on any blog, so I am covering very first. You can head over to www.Quora.com and search for your topic. Once you find some nice questions on the site, you can join that thread and start writing your answer.
The reason I love Q&A sites is that they are very targeted. If anyone is asking any question on such sites, that means he is looking at the solution to something. Once you help that person with your answer, your answer gets visibility on that platform and people start visiting your site for more information on that topic.
Pro Tip: You can smartly insert your blog posts link while typing answers.
Precaution: Don’t insert your link every time, otherwise Quora will disable your account for spamming too much.
You can do this same practice on many question-answer websites. Just go to Google and search for question-answer websites.
There are 2 billion people on Facebook right now. 28% of people in the world (there are 7 billion people on earth). This number is HUGEEEEE. Almost everyone has a Facebook account. This means that your potential readers are hanging out with their family and friends on Facebook.
You can search for some good groups by typing your main keyword in the Facebook search box.
Once you find those active groups, send them a request to join the group (most of the good groups are closed group so you need to request the group admin for approval before joining).
Start participating in various discussions and help them by inserting your blog post links.
