I absolutely hate giveaway.  I love doing reviews and nothing against giveaway, but the idea of telling the world that I have giveaways, putting people's email on random.org, announcing the winner, and the whole nine yard are quite a bit of work for me.  Is it possible to increase traffic without doing giveaway? 

Any input is greatly appreciated!

I have been picking just a few blogs that i like and have tried to develop relationships that way. It's difficult because there are so many bloggers and so many people out there. I post daily, reply to comments, and just try to be myself. It's probably not working but what can i say. Here's my blog: http://allfookedup.blogspot.com
Some good tips here thanks!

Something I have been wondering - how much traffic is a good amount?
I've heard that too. I might submit periodically my own stuff but it's a lot more of other people's content so it's not so obvious.

Carla -- I thought that you could get in trouble for submitting your own stuff to Stumbleupon. I have heard of bloggers who got banned for submitting too much of their own material. ANyone else?

I'm no expert but here's a few things that helped me get traffic to my site

*Submit your site to Blog directories
*Every time that you make a new post, submit it to social bookmarking sites such as digg, stumbleupon, mister-wong, and reddit
*Comment on forums and blog and include your site url
* Become active on facebook & twitter and promote your site

It's alot of work to get traffic but your hard work will eventually pay off :)

this is a great topic. i always thought the same.

Hello Marla,

 

It is very possible to increase your traffic without giveaways there are tons of sites that can help you such as this one and some of the other mom blogging networks.  I also love EntreCard it is coined as the bloggers business card and it can really help to increase your numbers without doing any giveaways.  I have written many a post on increasing your traffic which you can find here
