2 1. Comment on Gutefrage.net or Quora Create an account on Gutefrage.net or the German version of Quora. You can store your website in your profile so that people can access your website via your profile. Then you can start answering questions. The best thing to do is to attach a link to your answer with an article of yours, where the questioner can get more information. But be careful not to overdo it. Your answers should usually answer most of the question. The link to your article is only for those who want to know more about the topic. 2. Share your articles on Twitter, Facebook, XING In order to generate additional reach, you should not be afraid to spread your blog and your articles on social networks. Again, you shouldn't overdo it with the frequency.

3 3. Create a Facebook page In addition to your private Facebook account, you should create a page that is solely about your website. So you can share relevant links and articles with your target group and you get additional traffic via Facebook. You also have the opportunity to advertise your website. At the same time, a Facebook page can also have a positive influence on your ranking on Google. 4. Add your website to your Twitter profile. A link to the website can be stored in every Twitter profile. Make this your own and paste the URL of your website or blog into it. In this way, visitors who come to your Twitter profile have the opportunity to look at your website. 5. Add your website to your Instagram profile As with Twitter, there is the option of adding a link to the description on Instagram. On Instagram, this is (unfortunately) the only option, so take the chance. So people who have noticed your pictures and want to know more about you can simply click on your website.

4 6. Do a podcast with Pick out a small podcast that is about a topic that belongs to your area of ​​expertise. Once you've found a suitable podcast, you can ask the host if they'd like to interview you as a guest speaker. Once you've been involved in a smaller podcast, you can always pick out larger podcasts. Ideally, you should mention your website or blog in connection with the topic you are talking about. At the end of the podcast, feel free to mention your site again so that it stays in the minds of the audience. 7. Share your photos on Flickr, 500px or other photo communities If you create or edit your photos for your website yourself, photo communities are an ideal way to get more traffic to your website. On Flickr & Co. you can link back to your website with the uploaded photos. This is how you get additional traffic. This also has another advantage. Images uploaded to photo communities tend to rank better on Google. So you also get some traffic via the Google image search.

5 8. Add your website to LinkedIn / XING Anyone who is logged into LinkedIn and / or XING should definitely add their own website to their profile. Interested visitors have the opportunity to visit your website directly. 9. Publish your content in LinkedIn / XING groups LinkedIn and XING have a large number of groups on a wide variety of topics. Join topic-relevant groups and share your content there. By the way, there are also a lot of people who look in these groups for articles or content that they can post on their own website. This way, your content will get a lot more people to see. You will also receive important backlinks that are of crucial importance for the Google ranking. 10. Use Pinterest and Instagram If you use good and meaningful images for your products or articles, you should definitely publish them on Pinterest and Instagram. With the right hashtag, people will be aware of it and can share your photos and pictures.

6 11. Update your Google+ profile Anyone who has a profile on Google+ should also maintain it. So it makes sense to store a link to your website there (similar to Facebook and Twitter). This not only helps you to get more traffic, but also gives you a small SEO boost, as Google gives your site a little more authority. 12. Create Infographics Infographics work great when it comes to reach. Create exciting and engaging infographics with valuable information for your readers. You then share these via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. There should always be a link to your website in the infographic. Experience has shown that good infographics are shared more than average. Other websites can also insert the infographic in their posts and refer to you. This ensures additional traffic and important backlinks.

7 13. Cooperations on Instagram Are you active on Instagram? Then look for similar large accounts that have roughly the same target group as you. When you have found a few accounts, contact them and ask if they are interested in a cooperation. This could look like this: You share one of their images with their URL and in return they share one of your images with your URL. In this way, both parties reach a new audience. Kind of like guest posts, only on social media. 14. Create SlideShares from your content Whenever you publish exciting and informative content, you should summarize it and upload it to SlideShare. In this way, other users who browse for certain topics on SlideShare will notice you and can also share your content. Make sure that you also set a backlink on your website. This gives users the opportunity to visit your site.

8 15. Add sharing buttons to your website Sharing buttons are a pretty easy way to get more website traffic. Sharing your website or an article is very easy for the user through the sharing buttons. A simple click is all it takes and your content will be shared on social networks. Great (and free) tools that make this possible are, for example, GetSiteControl or AddThis. 16. Draw attention to yourself If you mention an influencer or a large company on your blog, it is child's play to draw attention to yourself. Let's assume you write an article and refer to an expert from the scene. Why shouldn't he find out? Write him one or post a link on Facebook or Twitter. Often times, if the content is good quality, that they will share the article with their followers.

9 17. Facebook groups Facebook groups are now very popular and a very easy way to find new readers (from your target group) for your blog. It is also not particularly difficult to find suitable groups on Facebook. Use keywords to find groups that fit your niche. It is best to choose the groups with the most members and a high level of activity. Note, however, that most groups have certain rules. Be sure to read them beforehand, as some groups do not allow the posting of links. 18. Create your own Facebook group If you don't want to follow the rules of other groups, you should create your own group. Invite people who (might) be interested in your topic. If you have new articles or new content on your website, you can share them as often as you want. Make sure, however, that you don't do this too often, otherwise you will get rid of the group members very quickly.

10 19. Write in niche forums In addition to the major social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter & Co., there are a few other ways to share your content with inquisitive readers: Niche forums. There is a large number of small forums on most topics. Find the one that suits you and register there. However, it is particularly important that you become part of the community. It won't work if you post a few links to your website in the forum and then never come back. You need to become an active member that is respected by others. 20. Post your content on Reddit There is nothing that is not on Reddit. The best thing to do is to look for subreddits (relevant to you) and share your content there. But you have to be careful here too! People don't like it there when they advertise themselves. So it doesn't make sense if you drop a few links to your site and then disappear again. Here, too, you have to become part of the community. You must also read the guidelines beforehand. Some subreddits do not allow you to post links to your own blog.

11 21. Update your signature Every day we send countless s to different people. Why shouldn't you use that for yourself? If you want a little additional traffic, simply add a link to your own website in your signature. 22. Out of office notice in the everyone knows it. Shortly after you've sent it, the other's out-of-office notice flutters into your mailbox. You can also use the out-of-office message to draw attention to your website or blog without any problems.

Find specific blogs or publications that may be of interest. These sites are always looking for cool products to share with their readers.

12 24. Subscribe to Google News If you focus on news with your website, you should do everything possible to subscribe to Google News. Ultimately, all you have to do is make a few changes to your site (e.g. how your articles are structured) and stick to a few rules from Google. And already you have hundreds of thousands of willing readers at your disposal. 25. Create new business cards Almost everyone has piles of business cards on their desk. Make sure there is a link to your website or blog there too. If you want to top it off, you can remove the address, telephone number and everything else from the business card. If only the name and the link to your website can be seen on the card, the person is practically forced to look at your website. This is the only way she can get in touch with you.

13 26. Send your content to professors Depending on what kind of content you publish on your site, it can be a good idea to send your content to professors. They can then in turn pass the content on to their students. This way you can get some new readers for your blog. The best thing to do is to introduce yourself briefly (if you don't already know the professors from university) and politely ask if your content might help the students. 27. Collecting addresses A large mailing list is pretty much the best way to get more website traffic. Your newsletter subscribers are the first to read your content and share it with colleagues, friends or even other followers. This ensures a high number of visitors for each of your posts.

Promoting your own page is child's play, even if you share third-party content.

15 30. Offer a free product instead of giving your readers a free product (suitable for your niche). Anyone who draws their readers' attention to this will quickly see that the message that there is something to be had for free spreads very quickly. If your product delivers what it says it is, your readers will make their friends aware of your site. Free traffic is inevitable. By the way, it doesn't have to be a material product. A free ebook is usually enough. 31. Put together product packages and sell them as a bundle. Check out other websites and blogs for similar products that your target audience might like. When you have found suitable products, you can suggest that the other site operators create a bundle (consisting of several products) and sell it. As soon as this is done, all you have to do is raise the bar a bit and draw attention to the product bundle in social media & Co. This action is even more successful if the other websites do the same. This creates a win-win situation for everyone involved.

On the one hand, this increases your credibility and, on the other hand, you get an enormous amount of traffic to your site if the influencer shares the interview with their followers. With a little luck, you might even make it into the Google search results with the interview. Imagine, someone is looking for the respective influencer and then your website or blog appears. 33. Publish a summary with experts. To do this, you need to contact several experts on a specific topic from your niche and ask if they can give you their opinions on it. This has the great advantage that all the experts can share your post or article with their followers. In addition, your credibility increases extremely here as well, as many well-known experts reveal something on your side.

Host a webinar Webinars are all the rage these days and are a real traffic guarantee. To do this, gather information on a specific topic from your niche. After you've got everything together for your webinar, promote it and ask your audience to share it with friends and colleagues. As long as the webinar is completely free and not a promotional webinar for a particular product, your readers will appreciate it and will be happy to share it with friends. 36. Let yourself be interviewed Anyone who presents themselves as an expert on a certain topic has the opportunity to receive inquiries about an interview from companies or other bloggers. You get a lot of attention - and the rest of the good content.

18 37. Create an ebook and list it on Amazon For this you should take your best content (that fits a topic) and summarize it in an ebook. You can then sell it on Amazon or offer it for free on the Amazon Kindle platform. In addition, Amazon has the option of offering the ebook free of charge for a certain period of time (if it normally costs something). So you can enter it as a freebie on popular deal sites, which means that you get loads of downloads. 38. Write guest posts on similar sites Find a handful of blogs or websites that deal with the same topic as you. Then suggest that the site owners write a guest post on a topic that their target audience might be interested in. In the guest post you then link to your own blog every now and then. But make sure that it doesn't get too much. Otherwise it will quickly look like you want to promote yourself.

19 39. Suggest a free version of your product to other companies You have developed a product or a tool? Then you should do everything you can to make it better known. Offer to other companies to use your product or tool for free if they draw attention to you and your product in return. This can be, for example, a newsletter, an advertisement or a social media post. In this way, you will receive a huge number of potential new customers within a very short time. 40. Team up with another site Find another site that will target the same audience as you. Then you offer the site operator to promote his site on your blog. In return, he'll advertise you on your site. This can happen in a post that links to you, a mention in the social networks or even a separate newsletter about you and your site. Both parties benefit.If it works well, you can keep the relationship going and repeat these actions occasionally.

20 41. Have your content published on other sites If you don't have time for guest posts, you should definitely consider this method. There are many websites that republish aggregated posts. However, you have to make sure that your article is not copied one-to-one, otherwise the risk of being punished by Google (duplicate content) is too great. The best thing to do is to rewrite your article. Then no problems should arise. In addition, it is extremely advisable to include a few links in your post that link to your website. This ensures more traffic and at the same time improves your search engine ranking. 42. Sell your products through affiliate partners You want to sell your products or your tools? Then try an affiliate system! There are some large networks (Zanox, affilinet, etc.) that can help you find the right affiliate partners.

But even if he doesn't buy anything, your product or tool will be advertised through your partners (free of charge for you).

21 43. Create a Wikipedia page If your page is a bit bigger and better known, it makes sense to create your own Wikipedia page for it. On this page you can then link to your blog, which in turn generates a little more traffic. 44. Add your articles on Wikipedia as a source. If your blog is not that big yet, you can pick out a few topics from your niche and store them for reference on Wikipedia. Although it is always a nofollow link, it still contains some website traffic via Wikipedia. 45. Send out newsletters If you have a newsletter mailing list (and you should have one) it is pretty easy to get traffic to your site. Simply send a newsletter to your subscribers for every new post or article you write. In the best case scenario, your subscribers will still share your content, which in turn will generate more traffic.

22 46. Add descriptions to your pictures If you add pictures to your blog or website, you should definitely describe them correctly. There is the so-called Alt attribute, which is played out if the image cannot be loaded. The Alt attribute is a text that describes what can be seen in the picture. Google also uses the alt attribute to understand what kind of image it is. Correctly awarded images are found quite easily in the Google image search. In this way, you can also bring some traffic to your own site. 47. Optimize your content for Google & Co.

Link your articles to each other In each of your posts you should internally link to other articles on your website. On the one hand, this helps your SEO ranking and, on the other hand, it ensures that your readers stay longer on your website and don't jump off again. 50. (On Budget) Sponsor Conferences and Events Find events or conferences that fit your niche and offer the organizers to sponsor their event. People who are interested in the event (even if they don't participate at all) see the list of sponsors, discover you and can get to your website.

24 51. (With a budget) Stickers Everyone knows people with countless stickers on their laptops, right? That brings us to this point. The laptop is great as an advertising medium.
