Traffic is the most important part of running a blog because you cannot run a blog successfully without traffic unless it was a private blog. Today there are thousands of blogs created daily which has made blogging to be competive which means that you should know work hard to overcome your competition , I have given a lot of SEO tips for driving organic search traffic but know I will show you the best ways that you can use to drive natural traffic to you blog through refferals.
Targeted refferal traffic is the web traffic that on obtains from the target audience , and it probably not using search traffic . I will show you the best ways that you can use to drive tons refferal traffic to your blog .

Paid Advertising

Paid Advertising is the best possible part that has the ability of driving tons of traffic to your site . I would recommend Google Adwords or bing Ads which is th most used Search Engines in this time , and I would recommend bloggers to use a lot of pay per click advertising which will work best as it will display your site above the Google Search results which will increase your chances of getting visitors  and also on Bing I would recommend the same , the best thing about bing Ads is that you are enabled to choose any target country you want your Ads to be displayed.
Apart from the Services mentioned in the post there are many more that can offer pay per click advertising at a very low price compared to the services named above.

  • Social Networks

The use of social networks have been a master plan to driving targetted traffic to a blog, social networks are packed with potential readers in them and winning them over will need a skill that is known by social Marketing whereby you will promote your blog to the facebook users and the users in some authority social networks like linkedin.
The use of social media has grown by billions as there are over 10 billion people in the world that spend their boredom on Social Media and through your blog you can get their interest and that is the reason I have always motivated bloggers to atleast have a facebook page linked with their blogs.
Apart from Facebook you can also use social networking sites like twitter, Pinterest, Digg, stumbleupon and many other sites that can get you target traffic .

  • Yahoo Answers

I believe that any internet user is familar with Yahoo answers as it is a site where anybody can post questions which anybody can answer with an online profile and from there you can get good backlinks and traffic to your site but the bad thing about their links is that they are no-follow which means you are very less likely to get any link juice but you will definately get that targetted traffic.

  •  Blog Commenting

Blog commenting has been a great way to win readers from another blog back to your blog, this will require you to comment in most niche related blogs that you come across online . This habit will definately call for their attention as they will want to know more about you .
Commenting on niche related  authority sites is the best but works best only if your comments are helpful to the readers of that site you are commenting on, Many bloggers have been leaving links on the comment box of this blog which does not work at all because such comments are very less likely to bring traffic and it gives you blog a bad reputation.

  • Forum participation

Participating in Forums gives you an opportunity to share ask and answer queations just as Yahoo answers does which makes forum participation a great way of winning over some blog readers to your blog.
Participation in forums does not only bring you targeted traffic but helps increase your alexa rank because most forums have do-follow links in them.

The tips shared are going to help you blog to improve in terms of traffic and also help your site to reach it best traffic levels.
