Getting people to visit your blog or website isn’t rocket science.
- Create your blog/forum/website.
- Write lots and lots of award winning blog posts.
- Visit similar, market leading blogs and forums and contribute lots, adding your original site’s URL/email address.
- Watch as people react to your comments and follow the link to your website.
