Traffic Generating Strategies: The Best Shared By Top Bloggers

Before I get to the best Traffic Generating Strategies, I have to share my excitement first. This is indeed a special day for me. My new site is up and running, as you can see I finally got to writing the first post, I have an exciting and insightful email course on Complete Domain Management available FREE of charge to my subscribers only, but most importantly, my latest eBook which I have been working on for months is almost ready for release! How cool is that!

So today I have a huge surprize for you guys. Something I haven’t thought of doing or even seen elsewhere, while I am just finishing up on the last bit of editing and polishing…

Ana Hoffman, without a doubt being my “go-to” person and mentor in terms of Traffic Generating Strategies, has inspired me to do something that would help many of you out there with your Traffic Generating Strategies. Something that provides theory, practical “how-to” information that everyone can use themselves to become more successful in terms of Traffic Generation.

Traffic Generation Strategies is probably the topic mostly discussed in the blogosphere at the moment, with many different variations, truths and sadly myths on what the best Traffic Generating Strategies are. That’s why I felt that I had to do something different. I want people and myself to get results. Real results. What better way to use proven and tested Traffic Generating Strategies from professionals, guys and ladies we all go to for other advise…

As some of you know, I have worked together with 10 Top Bloggers out there, with the likes of Jon Morrow, Derek Halpern, Ana Hoffman, Mavis Nong, Darren Rowse, Jane Sheeba, Ileane Smith, Elizabeth Horlemann, Alex Whalley and Kiesha Easley, and I have put together their own Traffic Generating Strategies that have been and still are the driving force behind their personal traffic generation success.

Another exciting edition to all that is that I have managed to twist a very good friend and a successful Google Master’s arm to write me an honest and informative foreword for this eBook, which I have to add, he has done an amazing job of and I couldn’t have asked or dreamed of anything better.

So my surprise to you then…

While the plan was that this book would have been available to you a few months ago but I am still finishing things off, I have decided to give you guys an insiders preview by giving you the whole foreword written by David Englert right here, right now. Now tell me that ain’t cool huh huh? :)

So without further ado, here it is…

The Best Traffic Generating Strategies Shared By 10 Top Bloggers | A Tribute

The Best Traffic-Generating Strategies By 10 Top Bloggers | A Tribute


I’ve been online for about 2 years and struggled during the first 16 months with blog construction and traffic. My construction challenges took me through building 4 different blogs until I finally got it right. My traffic problems weren’t caused by any traffic jams, my issue was that I had no traffic at all other than a few stray bots crawling the site. I stuck with it and finally after 16 months and a ridiculous amount of hours on the computer I got it figured out.

The journey was long and hard. I spent money on course after course, webinar after webinar but eventually it began to pay off. I now have a steady stream of visitors and a well-constructed blog and the traffic continues to grow. If I had this particular book in my hands back then, my struggles would have been cut short.

I’ve known Ruan for some time now and I can tell you that he is a man of good character. He’s the kind of guy that wants to help everyone to reach their full potential. He’s an experienced web developer and he runs a web hosting service but his real passion is for people. This book was written to help people to avoid the struggles that most find to be far too big of an obstacle to get around and therefore they quit on themselves and their dreams.

Ruan asked me to preview his book before its release and there are many words that I can use to explain its value to anyone trying to make it online. It’s concise, thorough and packed with essential information; this eBook will undoubtedly shorten the learning curve of anyone who reads it. The book is packed full of valuable content that will clear up the mysteries and put you on a straight and narrow path to success online. There are more top dogs spilling the beans in this book than I ever expected to see. Ruan’s ability to coax all of these top bloggers and internet marketers into exposing their closely guarded secrets to gaining followers, building traffic, making sales and ultimately living a lifestyle that most dream about astounds me. I’m really not sure how he was able to do it, but I’m glad that he did, this information is priceless!

At this time I have no idea how much money he plans on selling this book for but in my estimation and comparing the value to the struggle, it could easily go for $75 a copy. I know this sounds expensive to some of you, but you would pay far more and spend much more time if you bought all of this information separately. You’re getting the goods from Darren Rowse, Derek Halpern and Mavis Nong and many more. All of them are giving you their blueprint for success!

Kudos to Ruan, he has done an incredible job with this eBook, it’s a great read with tons of valuable information. Unless you like to struggle, you can avoid the 16 month odyssey that I endured and you can prosper much quicker. Take the information in this book and apply it to your business and watch it grow!

    Cool comp Ruan. And I read about that book in your sidebar. Awesome value. Everyone should want a copy. I don’t there’s a book available that has tips from an array of top online business professionals.
    Ivin recently posted..Add Comment Timing to your StrategyMy Profile

    • Yes I think it does offer excellent value Ivin as these are exactly the strategies each of these guys follow on a daily basis that helped them reach the levels of success they have. I mean, it has to work, right? I can testify that indeed it does for me too.

      I need to get more going in spreading this word though as it doesn’t mean anything if nobody knows about it. I managed to convince one of the contributors of the book (you know Kiesha :) ) that I write up a guest post on this to her audience, so it would be nice if I could get something similar going on other sites.

  2. Hey Ruan,

    even if you did have all that knowledge yourself it’s a very smart move to collaborate with such reputable names & well done for making that happen.

    Books like this which are a collection of different voices make for really interesting reading, not least that every author probably got their success via different routes so readers can pick and choose the voice that ‘talks to them’/that they connect with the most. I know that there are various strategies that although proven successful, I am not particularly comfortable with – so having that flexibility in my view is a key selling point (not to mention the great list of contributors themselves). So that would be my reason (Q3).

    (Q2 – done – I was going to do that anyway ;-) )

    (Q1) – honestly, it’s a great foreward, but unless forewards have to be particularly long, he could have said it with very few words… take a look at the names & the title, put those two together and you don’t have to be a genius to work out that this is going to be an awesome book.

    So that’s me done and I only stopped by to say Hi after your kind comments on my site ;-) Glad I did though, I might even get a free book out of it (I have both sets of fingers and toes crossed too – how’s that for enthusiasm).

    p.s. talking of Ana @ TGC – I just wrote a guest post for her, it would be awesome if you’d pop over there and let me know what you think,

    take care & best wishes,

    p.p.s. good luck with the e-book though I suspect you’re not going to need it…
    Alan | Life’s Too Good recently posted..Do You Know When To Lead and When To Follow?My Profile

    • Wow Alan, wow! What a comment and effort! I have to agree 100% with you on the range of options one can literally pick and choose from contained within this book. This is exactly the reason I did this in the first place. Let me be honest, if one takes all of these strategies all at once and try implement each one of them, you’ll burn yourself out even before seeing any results. It’s just not possible.

      I myself have taken two of these strategies and they are the only ones I put all my time and energy into right now. So far so good, and you’ll see, we share a common strategy between the two of us, I know it already.

      Alan, I have an idea. I really appreciate you taking the time and effort to go through all the required steps to win yourself a copy. I need to get into contact with you with a small proposal. I’ll send you a mail and let’s see if you’ll be interested ;)

      In the meantime, I’ll hop right over to Ana’s blog, been a contributor to some work I’ve done for her in the backend; she’s been such another great inspiration in my blogging career. I’ll come and support you on that side buddy :) Thanks again for stopping by and saying a HUGE “Hi”!

  3. Adeline says:

    It’s really great to know that David had to grow through 4 blogs and more than a year struggling to get anyone to check out any of his blogs. His journey to blogging success is not something that happened overnight. It was a long and (I’m guessing a painful one). His story and the stories of the other bloggers here would definitely serve both as an inspiration for bloggers that they can succeed and a wake up call those disillusioned by the notion that just because they set up a blog, they can pretty much take things easy. I’m really excited to get a copy of this book. Hopefully, be one of those that get the free copy. But even if I don’t, I’m definitely going to be one of the first in line for it. Extra points for donating a portion to Hand of Hope!
    Adeline recently posted..How to Get Cheap Plane Tickets on Short NoticeMy Profile

    • Hi Adeline,

      Well, all you have to do is follow the small requirements step by step and I’d say you stand a pretty good chance of winning yourself a copy of the eBook. I promise it’s well worth the small effort and you’ll be ahead of the rest, no doubt in my mind.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I hope to see you around more often! :)

  4. Most of the blogs in your list – problogger, socialTriggers….etc are good and informative.

    From step 1 under “1. Find Out How Much Traffic Your Keyword Gets” if we Click on “Only show ideas closely related to my search terms” box, and see the see the global monthly searches, both searches results are same to click on “Only show ideas ..” and not to select this option, so with this senerio we shoudl select it or not?? and what “Match Type” option we should select “Broad” “[Exact]” “Phrase” for better market plan search?
    A Website Designer recently posted..Building a content marketing plan with James Schramko (part 1)My Profile

    • As I’ve answered your question on, I am assuming you’re referring to the Google Keyword Tool…

      I’m using Market Samurai myself but here’s what I’d suggest with the keyword tool:

      I’d leave the box “only show ideas…” unchecked as this will prevent you from getting more suggestions. I’d also select to get global monthly results as this is what you’re ultimately after. Select “exact” match as the match type as you want targeted traffic and not some broad or non-targeted traffic from the keywords you rank for.

      Hope this helps!

  5. Eyern says:

    Steps 1 through 4 complete!

    Now if you could find it in your heart to give me this ebook for free that would be great. I have just started blogging and am having trouble generating a large amount of traffic.

    So in conclusion you should probably give me this ebook for free because I am incredibly good looking and awesome as I am sure you are as well.

  6. Everyone struggles with traffic and there is SO much info out there it’s confusing at first until you get to know who to follow (and this takes time). So thanks to you for the time you have taken to get all the ‘heavy hitters’ into an e-book – (I can image the hours put into this) and it saves a whole lot of time for us, something we never have enough of.

    I think the forward by Dave was personal, warm and felt genuine, but perhaps a paragraph or two too long… Well done on the donation to Hand of Hope!

    Looking forward to seeing the e-book and all the valuable information it will have.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    • Such a sincere and warm comment Midge! I really enjoyed reading your thoughts.

      Indeed the eBook took a lot of hours and planning. Then the writing and editing took some work too after I had it reviewed by a couple of people. I know that it provides no hype, genuine and valuable content that every blogger or website owner could use in their online strategies of driving targeted traffic to their content. The biggest challenge for me is to create the buzz around the release of the book. It’s difficult when you’re not established as a trusted authority within your niche yet but you know what you have to offer is of extreme value. I thought that using people already trusted in the industry would ease things and add some much needed credibility to the mix, which I’m sure it did but as you can see, the response haven’t been all that great yet, despite numerous guest posts and promotion being done on authority sites. Hopefully things will pick up once a few people have read through the content and willing to give me some feedback which I can share with others.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to contribute. I could trace all the steps you’ve completed which gives you a pretty good chance of winning yourself a copy.

      All the best with your ventures and looking forward to see you around.

  7. I am so excited to get a copy of this ebook. I will be buying one anyway but would love to win a copy for free. The foreword offers a great teaser and the list of contributors has just got me salivating. I really want to know what each of these people reckons is their top tip and then I can get out there and do it….

    Ruan, I found this post thru Jane Sheba as I am on her list. But I will soon be on yours too after I post this! I liked David’s forward as it had a theme of “helping us not to have to struggle.” I’ve done pretty well with my blog and am getting awesome help now thru the Renegade Team but the big piece I need help with is more traffic to my blog. The reason I want to win your ebook is because I am your first client to help: I have been struggling to get traffic and I need everyone’s expertise in a big way! When I read your post, I knew that help was on the way for me. Now I will go sign up for your list and tweet this post and hope and pray that I will win! Here is a great quote from my mentor: “In the fight between environment and willpower, environment will win every time!” So I need this ebook in my environment!!! Blessings, Amy

    • Thank you for taking the time to stop by, Amy!

      I think I will need to re-think the amount of copies I will be giving away if I keep getting responses like yours! ;) Absolutely loved your quote!

      Welcome to UltimateDomainManager and I promise I’ll live up to your expectations as far as my abilities stretch :)

  13. Howard says:

    I’ve been trying different things to increase traffic to my Celtic-Fiddler blog with little success. I hope that I can get some ideas from here that will work better than what I’ve been doing. I just finished up a contest where I gave away more than $400 in physical prizes — and I’m only getting about 50 visits a day…

    • Stick around Howard as I guarantee you that you’re in the right place if you are serious about getting help. We all learn together and as we learn we share it with those around us, exactly what my goal with eBook is all about. I have been following each of those featured bloggers for quite some time now and felt that they needed some much-deserved credit for what they have been doing for a great number of people from all over.

      This is indeed a tribute to them and in the process something of incredible value that will most definitely help every single reader and action taker of the advice contained within.

      Thanks for reaching out and I appreciate your contribution. Be sure to try to complete the easy steps within the post to possibly grab your free copy of the book being released on the 30th of September.

  16. Good foreword Ruan, I can’t wait to read it. I agree that traffic in a sense is not the problem because the traffic is here already. It is one of those things where you have to stand in the middle of cyber street, stand out and be unique and offer value and not just a product. This book traffic getting strategies is definitely something I can value and appreciate. It took a while for me as well to come to that conclusion.

    • That’s the thing Kasi: It’s not about re-inventing the wheel, it’s about adding your own mix of rubber to the manufacturing process and improve on the design and end product. Derek Halpern (valuable contributor to the book) puts it best: “You don’t need a new recipe, you just need unique ingredients.”

      Glad you enjoyed it and hoping to see you around more often!

      All the best with your traffic-generating strategies!
