Blog traffic is the single thing that every blogger will say is their number 1 problem. You can find plenty of programs on the Internet for getting traffic but most of those programs are only garbage. You can find legitimate ways to get traffic to your blog without having to use any of those ineffective traffic programs and we are going to describe one of those strategies in this article.

The key benefit of working with social bookmarking is that many people belong to these social bookmarking sites and you will be able to get visitors right from these websites. The 2nd thing that is great is you are developing backlinks for your site every time you bookmark one of these posts on the social bookmarking sites. As many of you are already aware the more backlinks you have the more traffic you’re going to get from the search engines. The best part is after you keep building these links the search engines will often rank your site higher inside their results.

Although you want to become a member of a number of websites, you also want to make sure your joining high page rank social sites as well. Some of these higher page rank sites are generally sites like Google Bookmarks, Hi5 and Reddit. But don’t just stop there because you’ll find hundreds more websites that you will be able to leave your link on. I would suggest registering to about 40 or 50 of the leading social bookmarking Internet sites. You’ll find lists of these Internet sites by just doing a search in the search engines. While this will be very time consuming to subscribe to all the sites, it will be worth it over time.

Once you have joined these Internet sites the next thing you will want to do is to bookmark every post you make everyday. Once more this can be time intensive taking up to 2 hours to log in and post your bookmark to all the websites. The best part about this method is that you will see an instant surge in your traffic right off the bat.

Something you may want to consider are individuals who will actually go out and set up a lot of social bookmarking sites for you and usually just ask for about 5 to 10 dollars to do this for you. Naturally this will still leave you with having to login on a daily basis and post to the sites. You can actually find a number of programs on the Internet that will automatically post your blog posts on the social bookmarking sites for you.

A pair of programs which will do this for you are only wire and ping. fm. These programs will use your login information from the social bookmarking websites you signed up with and automatically bookmark all your new blog posts. This is actually a simple method that will get you the visitors you need in order to start generating more money. The search engines will begin to like your blog when you start building 40 to 50 backlinks everyday on the social bookmarking sites.
