Sites to Use To Drive Traffic to Your Blog

When I started doing this whole blog thing, I never realized how many people were blogging for more than their own enjoyment; a lot of people are actually making a ton of money doing it.

So, after figuring all of that out, I thought it would be a good idea to go about adding Google AdSense (all of those links on the top, side and bottom of all of my blogs), if at the very least, to try and earn enough money to cover the cost of hosting each of the sites.

For the most part, I’ve made a small amount each day, probably averaging less than $1 per day. Not that I’m complaining, I mean, that’s $30 per month, more than covering the $12 per month I’m spending on all of my hosting accounts.

Obviously, the days where my sites have experienced a spike in the number of hits, I’ve received more money for the increased number of AdSense clicks. For example, the last two days, I’ve had over 10,000 hits on my Daily Fuel Economy Tip site, and I’ve made about $10 each day. I know that’s not enough to go and quit my day job, but it works for me.

In an effort to try and get more hits to my sites, I’ve found a couple of places where you can post links to your sites as a way to help drive traffic. Here are the sites that I’ve found to be the most helpful:

You can set up a free account on each of these sites and use them PERIODICALLY to post articles; you shouldn’t post links to your articles very often. Otherwise, you’ll be labeled as a spammer and then nobody will want to read what you have to say. Your articles should be good enough that the new traffic you’ve generated will do the work for you.
