  1. It’s fine to build sites, but unless you do extensive backlinking your hard work building sites will be for nothing.

  2. I got a new site and really struggling hard to get some traffic to my site.I really tried most of things you have mentioned but still not getting much traffic. Not even one person visit my site.
    Please help…!!

    1. Thanks Mujibur for your time to visit my blog. And for a site that is new, it takes time for Google and other search engines to let know about different pages it have. Keep trying hard and add latest stuff there and you will be getting decent flow of traffic very soon.

  3. I really like the suggestions. But i would really like to add something about using article directories. Article directories are websites that house free articles. These articles are often put there by whoever owns the copyright to them and are used as a web promotion method that brings internet traffic and produces valuable back links important to improve page rankings in the search engines.

    Although you can post on any directory, but it is recommended to build or promote your website by using top article submission directories. Searching for the Top Article directories can be a cumbersome task. So to simplify the process, you need to have a one stop solution where you can review a whole lot of directories based on different parameters such as approval times, article views, traffic response, page ranking and then choose the best directories to post.

    There are now thousands of article directories but we have found that many will send you little or no traffic. If you want to submit your articles to the best article directories, check out the Top Article Directories for your article submissions. This is because top article directories will definitely have more visitors which eventually will help to get more exposure to your article and brings more traffic.
