Free Methods and Tactics
Yes, that is not a typing error, the (Comment) Sites you are about to access have over 300 Million Visitors Combined at the time of this post. And the visitors to these sites are increasing exponentially. Take Medium for example, which were averaging around 85.5 Million Visitors (Around 3 Months Ago) and is now nearing 120 Million Visitors. But I’m sure by now you’re wondering as to exactly how I know that, right.
Pretty easy, and also the obvious question. By using a tool called Similar Web, by easily searching your browser for that exact search term and access the site. Next you just paste the link to the site you wish to check, and it will show you both quantity and quality of visitors. Please do test the sites you’re about to access, perhaps sit down while doing that. It is pretty mind blowing seeing that kind of quantities.
Before we get to these high authority sites, fist know the finer tactics of generating traffic by building back links. It really does depend on the quality of your content, comment or otherwise. It comes highly recommended to actually read the post/article you wish to comment on. Always comment something relevant to the discussion, and try to add value to fellow readers.
NEVER put any link in any comment on any site, unless the comment window allows for your Website /Blog URL. And even then it must be the link to your own personal domain (Preferably a Blog), especially with Affiliate Marketing.
This is why it is so important to discover your profitable niche, because this is the true cornerstone of an Online Empire. When you truly love what you do then it will be impossible to give up, which is why something like a hobby works well. Learn as much as you possibly can about your niche, because knowledge is the only way that you will create unique content and inspire interest from your comments.
Remember, we’re trying to leverage back link building to also result in interested visitor increase. You have to prove to your audience you know what you’re talking about, and from that useful comment they will visit your site. Now some of these sites may be using comment sites like Disqus, and when they do there is no provision to share links. Which is why you must create your complete profile with Disqus, just search your browser.
The Sun, a UK Based Site with 88.95 Million Visitors (65% UK, US and Canada Visitors) – The Sun is a News UK Company that features latest news, topics and trends. TV and showbiz, News, Fabulous, Money, Motors, Travel, and other high value content.
The Sun Comments section will require you to sign up for a membership (At No Cost, Completely Free) and please do pay attention to completing your profile details and picture. When you comment as discussed earlier, not only must the content directly relate to your own niche but also be relevant to the discussion at hand. If the discussion is about Hurricane Irma, then comment something relevant and not just gibberish to have a back link.
The Telegraph, another UK based site with 126.5 Million Visitors (62% UK, USA) – The Telegraph is much like The Sun, and should be approached in the exact same manner. Keep it real and be professional because copy/paste marketing doesn’t work among professionals. The Telegraph gives you access to things like online jobs, and allows you to upload your CV.
Merely sign up to The Telegraph, also completely no cost involved. Strange how most of the really effective tools and tactics are the free ones right?
Medium is a Blogging Community with 113.85 Million Visitors (40% UK, USA and Canada) – Medium allows you to publish your work once your profile is complete, and I advise Again. Your Profile must be as complete as possible because that is how visitors find your Blog.
Medium uses “Claps”, which are much like Facebook Likes and Twitter love. Like with many high authority sites you are allowed to add tags to your posts and comments so choose your topics carefully. From Social Networking to Blogging Secrets and Content Suggestions, there are various topics and if you love blogging then you must definitely register for Medium.
ISSUU is Another Great Site with 60.55 Million Visitors (40% UK, US and Canada) – Issuu is more of a publication site where you can publish your work, preferably in PDF format but other formats like Word is also accepted.
You must learn to access other people’s uploaded work (Relevant to Your Own) and then save, share or like the piece. Much like reading an eBook, but as with all these sites you need to get recognised through valuable engagement.
Issuu covers around sixteen different categories like sport and entertainment, Style and fashion and even Home and Improvements.
The “Secret Sauce” of Commenting – When you share relevant and useful content, then other professionals in your network will add their views. This way, not only do you build back links and drive traffic but you also learn a great deal about your niche.
Your Primary goal is to attract interested readers (Not Try To Sell Something) to your Blog, by creating content that would complement your topics on your own posts. Take this particular post for instance, comments on S.E.O and Building Back Links will be the ideal audience to attract.
And A Little Bonus On Top Of Back Link Building – The site is called Shout Me Loud (Just search your browser), and have both Blog and Forum comments options. This Forum in particular is exceptionally responsive, and I am speaking from experience.
Shout Me Loud with 4 Million Visitors (25% USA, UK and Canada) – Covers categories like Discussions, S.E.O, Affiliate Marketing, WordPress and Social Media among many others. And as with all the other great tools we discuss here, it’s also completely free to join.
Just search your browser for the suggested keywords to reach these sites, it’s just a personal preference not to share too many links in my posts.
Wishing You Prosperity,
