Increase Traffic Your Website – You’re Welcome!

Traffic is the name of the game when you are building an affiliate blog or a commerce site. Traffic represents the number of people who visit your site. When you begin to get traffic to your website, or people going to your site, the search engines, such as Google, Bing or Yahoo start to recognize your website as more relevant, more important to readers searching your keywords.  Let’s do it – Increase Traffic YOUR Website!  (I say “You’re Welcome” because I know you will thank me!)

If I can show you a couple of great ways to increase your traffic, to get more people to visit your website, and even leave relevant comments when they do visit (the search engines, again, find a website with a lot of comments to be more meaningful and relevant to readers), would that help you to grow your business and make more sales? Yes, indeed!Increase Traffic Your Website

Let’s get into a couple of ways you can increase the traffic to your website!

Using Social Media

Every single time you post a blog post, you should go to each of your social media accounts that are set up for your business, and post the link with a little blurb. It’s a quick step that will reap you traffic rewards.

Here’s where it gets tricky, though, and I’ll tell you why. It is very hard for most people to get onto social media, post their links to their newest blog post and get off the platform! That’s the tricky part, getting off the platform. Twitter can suck you in within seconds and waste a lot of your valuable time. They all can.

In order to be successful at this business, you must be dedicated and learn to spend your time wisely, because there is so much to do if you want to do this right! So post and get done with it. There is plenty of time for your personal social media, but don’t let it suck you in when you’re working!

While we are on the topic, here are the links to my social media pages. Would you give me a like and join my networks? I’d love to get to know you and help you grow your business!

This one step will do more to grow your business than any other suggestion I could ever make to you. There are several key traffic benefits to joining the Wealthy Affiliate Premium Program. You can sign up for Wealthy Affiliate and get started absolutely free, but to take full advantage of the amazing traffic-producing benefits of the platform, you do have to become a Premium Member. The good news is it is only $49/month, and your first month is only $19. to get you going!

Let me explain to you the ways that the Wealthy Affiliate Platform will provide you with traffic and relevant comments, and even pay you for comments. It’s all pretty amazing! I’ve participated in the platform comments area, giving and receiving relevant comments, exchanging comments with other members, and I’ve earned almost enough this month to pay for my Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership fee! It’s like they’re paying me to get comments on my website!

So how does it work? There are two ways to get the Wealthy Affiliate members to your website:

The Give & Take Comments Thread

Here is a screenshot of the thread within the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Increase Traffic Your Website

As you can see, members post a link to the blog post they desire traffic to and comments on, and when a member goes to their site and leaves a comment, they let the person know what post they would like a reciprocal comment on, and the person reciprocates! Hence, the “give & take” comments thread! It’s genius! You can get so many comments just by posting a link to your post and promising to reciprocate on their post!

How awesome is that? You get to visit all these other affiliate websites and see so many creative ideas and interesting niches. People have websites about everything. It really is so great to be able to all work together and help each other out, building our traffic and our reputation with the search engines!

Site Comments Area

This is a more “official” area to give and obtain site comments, and far superior, in my opinion. The Site Comments area is quite incredible. Whoever the programming genius behind the Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy platforms is, he or she did an amazing job, and the site comments is just another example.

Increase Traffic Your Website

So this is a program in which you can choose to offer a comment or request a comment. You must have two points accumulated in order to request a comment. In other words, you must leave two relevant comments for other websites and then you will have earned the two points required to request a comment. Very automated.

So, let’s offer a comment!  When you want to leave your comment, another member’s website will pop up, and it will show what types of comments the member wants. You can then opt to accept or decline the website. You don’t want your decline ratio to get too high, or you won’t qualify to get paid.  So if you accept, you click on the “View the Website” button,  and you are taken in another tab to the member’s website post.

Increase Traffic Your Website

This member has requested comments that either “offer experience with the topic” or “opinion about the topic” or both!

You read the member’s website post and then you go back to the platform and leave your relevant comment.

The comment you leave then come back to the website owner for approval like this:

Increase Traffic Your Website

You can edit the comment, delete the comment, approve the comment, or approve and reply to the comment, all right on the platform, and they then post to the website once they are approved. It really is quite an amazing and easy to use program, and it reaps huge benefits to your generic traffic from the search engines.  SEARCH ENGINES FIND YOUR WEBSITE MORE RELEVANT IF IT HAS A LOT OF COMMENTS!

Now, let’s request a comment.  Under “Choose Website” I chose this website,  (I have several sites) which is  After choosing which site you want comments on, you then select which post you want a comment on.  When you click on “Select the site page you would like comment on,” all of your post titles pop up and you simply click on the title of the post you want!  It’s super simple!


Increase Traffic Your Website

At the bottom you can see where you can check whichever types of comments you want under “What kind of feedback do you want?“.  You can choose one or all of the options.  If you want to be able to respond to the comments, you would choose the “Questions on the topic or overall article” option.

Get 24-Hours of Comments

Once you have left only 10 comments on other websites, every single post you have in the queue for commenting will automatically scroll through the queue for a full 24-hours! I have received up to 6 comments on one post! That’s a lot of comments for my two! So you want to get to that 10 each time you do it so you can grab that 24-hour access!  That gets you a lot of comments on your posts!!!

Why are traffic & comments important?

The more people (traffic) to your website, the more comments you receive, the more important the search engines think you are, and the more likely you are to start to appear on the first page of a search for your keywords instead of page 94! You must prove yourself to the search engines for them to take you seriously.

Take your business seriously and learn your trade. You must find ways to increase the traffic to your website and get those comments.

Remember, the more traffic, the more people see your products for sale, the more clicks and buys, the more money you make. It is a simple, yet specific, process, and when you have the key, and follow the plan, success is imminent!

Born in Texas, raised in upstate New York, I have been marketing for my entire adult life.I have decided to share all the information I have gathered on what works in affiliate marketing, and what doesn't because I want to let the world know that working online gives you the freedom to work from anywhere, and that is exactly what I do!

Starting out can be tough, I know, so I will also be sharing lots of free resources to get you going.I am dedicated to providing this information to my readers, and I hope you always feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks for visiting my page!


  1. Sharing to social medias is the best way to boost your traffic. The hardest part is getting people to share to triple your incoming traffic. That is my main goal right now, and I’m doing pretty good so far being that I just got my site up and running a few months ago.

    1. Hey Ty,  You can try setting up a weekly schedule with goals.  For example, depending on YOUR time and schedule, let’s say your goal is one post every three days.  So the third day when you finish your post, you can schedule to place that post with a small blurb on each of your social media sites.  Viola!  (Just don’t get sucked into the sites, lol, or you won’t move on!).  Let me know how I can help!

  2. So many ways to get traffic for free wow!  You are right about getting sucked into social media,I followed you on a few and had to catch myself on pinterest LOL  I am going to have to get more active within the Wealthy Affiliate community thanks to the wealth of information you provided me with just how valuable the community and platform is!!! 

    1. Cathy,  definitely get plugged in!  You won’t believe how it will grow your business.  That, and all the training!  Talk about getting sucked in!  LOL!  You can get lost in all the training, on every topic imaginable!!!!!

  3. Hi Babs,

    Actually came to your website through twitter and really liked this post on Wealth Affiliate it is well written and describes the platform very well. Thanks for taking the time to share this information.

  4. This is a great read and gives me some things to think about and try to implement on my own website, How many social networking sites do you share on? I have only started to write on my blog and find it hard sometimes this helped me with some ideas. Thank you

    1. The ones I listed in the article are the only ones I use. I recently started placing multiple pictures for each post on pinterest in different groups and using my keyword rich titles on there with them as well. I make several different title pictures for each post now so that I can accomplish this. – Babs

  5. Hey Babs! 

    As always, great post! This is actually perfect timing, as I’ve just recently started taking my social media marketing more seriously. Do you recommend a certain social media platform to others? Or is this something that’s dependent on someone’s niche? 

    I would imagine that someone in the “online marketing” niche would be more drawn to sites like LinkdIn while those with beauty blogs that have a need for more visuals would be more drawn to social media sites like Twitter or Pinterest? 

    Do you find the certain niches are more popular with certain platforms? I’ve always wondered this because I would like to focus on one social media platform at a time and I’m a bit stuck on where I should put most of my efforts.

    1. They’re all great for any niche.  There is one thing I didn’t mention in my article, and that is to also post your posts on other groups in your niche if they allow it.  

      It can be time consuming for sure, but it will get your site out there and drive traffic to it.

      – Babs

  6. I’d really like to get more efficient at using social media accounts to drive more traffic to my website – I have tired before, but I feel I don’t have enough popularity following each account. 

    Where would one find training that could improve my social media marketing skills? Do you have any articles on that subject on this site?

    1. Chris, if you join the Wealthy Affiliate platform and become a Premium member, there is a ton of great training on each of the many social media platforms.  I will take your suggestion and provide some content here on this site to assist as well.  Thanks for the great idea!  Definitely take a look at the Wealthy Affiliate program.  You can’t go wrong if you want to take your business to the next level!  – Babs

  7. I have come to realize that Social Media can only work successfully once you have content on your website with several posts that will give variety when you post to attract traffic.  Monotony is not successful but variety is.

    You have given food for thought and golden key to succeeding with Social Media platforms – post and exit as soon as possible and move on to the next post or blog.

    Great advice!  Thanks for sharing your information with us so we can progress and succeed.


  8. Great post!  I especially liked the warning about getting stuck/sucked in to social media.  It is such an important tool, but also such an interference to reaching one’s goals.  I have yet to find that balance. My other problem is gaining followers to my business accounts.  How do you suggest doing that?

    1. You are about the 10th person to ask me about getting more followers on social media accounts, and I am already in the process of writing an article about just that, so I recommend you subscribe to the site.  This will give you a notification of whenever a new post is made.  The article should be coming out within the next week or so, so keep an eye out.  It will have some great information!   – Babs

  9. I enjoyed reading this article on how to boost traffic, and now I am following you on facebook.  I do post my blog posts to my facebook, twitter, and pinterest and I even repost older blog posts, all with a blurb, I think my issue is that I don’t have that many followers on my social media pages.  I need to find a way to get more followers.  I probably also need to take advantage of sitecomments on WA more often and maybe that will help me rank better over time. 

    1. Hey Josh, I will be writing an upcoming article on getting more people to follow you on social media sites.  This can be tricky and takes time, but it is well worth the effort!  Please subscribe so you get notification when the article comes out.  – Babs

  10. Your suggestions included in this article are useful and they do work to get more traffic to your website. I have used all the ones you mention and can attest that they will help. Even if you have good quality content, practice good SEO, and provide value, it often can seem like nobody is looking, especially when starting out with a website.

    The social sharing can get you traffic. That is where people online are spending their time these days and using their mobile phones to do their internet time. So it just makes sense to create a presence on the biggest platforms and actively add content from your website there so people will come to see what you have published.

    The other side of your post are the comments you get that do help raise you in the rankings of the search engines and get yet more free traffic from searches that people are making for keywords that you are using in your content. The Wealthy Affiliate feature is an excellent tool to get the comments that get the ball rolling when it comes to comments.

    I have used the tool since its inception and can vouch for just how effective it is. Most certainly you need to do the other taskings as well, and add video is as possible to your posts (people love video) but you have offered some solid recommendations for readers. Good post, thanks for helping us all out (see, I did thank you!)…   

    1. You’re welcome, Dave, and thank you so much for your sincere testimonial on the program.  I appreciate it, as do my readers!  – Babs

  11. Good day!  Your review about Wealthy Affiliate is totally on points because I’m a living testimony to it. Offering comments has been the way I’ve been working to be a certified commenter. While offering comments to other people’s blogs allows me and gives me room to create post and promote my blog too. As a new member on Wealthy Affiliate , I’m required to be relevant member for two months before I start offering training and start earning.  Please, I need help on how to promote a niche on Wealthy Affiliate? I still don’t know how to do that.

    1. The commenting section does not pay out cash but gives you “credits” to be able to receive comments, and if you leave 10 comments quickly, you can get a full 24-hours of comments on the posts of your choice.  It helps with the ranking.

      I present many ways on my site to promote your niche.  I can refer you here to a couple of articles, and please email me if you need some specific guidance.  I would be very happy to help you with specific areas and even review your site and promotions.  

      This article, of course, gives you many pointers, and here is another one:  TRAFFIC

      You don’t have to promote within Wealthy Affiliate.  Anything you want to tell the group can be done with a blog post or through your website in the comments area where people will see it and read it.

      My email is

  12. Thank you for your amazing tips Babs. I am really interested in getting more traffic on my blog but this can get really hard sometimes. I never knew that having more commented content can more traffic. That is really amazing. I appreciate showing the way you can get comments on your website and also help others by leaving comments.

    Thank is so awesome. I am going to give this program a try right now.

    Thank you.


    1. I am so happy my article was of benefit to you, Strahinja.  There are so many steps to get traffic, and I plan to dive into them more as this seems to be one of the topics I get the most questions on.  – Babs

  13. The traffic suggestions here are tried and true and can help boost the traffic your website gets considerably but only if you have developed your social media accounts accordingly. Maybe you could do an article on how to set up these social media sites?  That would be really helpful.  Thanks, Babs!  Jon

  14. Thanks for the great tips on increasing traffic for my websites.

    You’re spot on with the whole social media trap.  Every time I go to post something for my business I find myself going down the rabbit hole and getting side-tracked.  It’s a fault I’m trying to consciously work on.  My next gotchya is having too many social media accounts to post to.

    I can’t agree more with regards to Wealthy Affiliate.  I’m actually a member and it’s been the best move I’ve ever made.  WIth the tools available at your fingertips, the great community and amazing training, what’s not to like.

    Traffic is that one truly coveted resource that we’re all after.
    Thanks again for the tips,

  15. Wealthy affiliate is a game changer in affiliate marketing and online business in general. Because here nothing is left to chance, you get a training on how to create an online business, how to create unique content and you get the help of the community to rank your website.

    Website traffic is the goal for any online business. That is why Wealthy Affiliate makes sure that us memebers get the initial traffic from our community. To send a signal to search engines that the website is live and has useful content.

    Everything is put together to help you succeed. 

  16. Oh, I relate to that so much – going on social media to post some articles and realizing 3 hours later that I have not posted a single one yet. In that regard, over time I have come to a realization that for me and my business overall it’s probably best to not post anything on social media. And just take the hit of not doing that for the sake of not wasting time. In time I will probably try to sort this out by building some more self-control but I feel now it’s not the time. But regardless of that, I feel posting on social media (the more, the better) definitely is good advice.

    As for all the possibilities that the Wealthy Affiliate program offers – there truly is no better place to be. 🙂

    Cheers, and have a Great One!


    1. Here’s a good post for you because this is a good way to be able to do the important and necessary task of posting your content on social media, but it keeps you off the personal platform.  You simply share through your post directly to your page and that’s it.  Check it out here:  HOW TO AUTO POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA

  17. I believe Wealthy Affiliate is somewhat of a uniquely helpful source and home platform for all affiliate marketers. 

    In that sense, I believe for many it might be the very foundation for their online business and their online success. I mean I find the comment platform absolutely revolutionary. It’s like many affiliate marketers and try-to-be ones join forces to actually increase their likelihood of succeeding while also probably socializing and sharing successes and pitfalls. 

    As regards to the social media ‘sucking you in’, for people, it might help to remember one thing. This one helps me get off them without the pain of being sucked in.

    You give some great pointers in this article; a lot of tips I could use.

    Have a Wonderful Day, Babs!
