Traffic TIps with A Contest

It's been a while since I posted an article about traffic tips. So I would like to share tip that some bloggers are using. Of course, there sites to help you gain traffic like Stumble, Entrecard and Sitehoppin, but there's also another way to increase it by making a contest. It doesn't only help your site to be productive but at the same time, you are helping others that are joining your contest. How are helping them? In every contest, there's a winner. And for every winner, there should be a prize. So you decide on what prize you are capable of giving. You can give credits from entrecard, or maybe a free ad of their site posted on your site or maybe some cash. You just don't give those prizes for nothing. In return, people will be returning to your site because of these contest. You can also create a contest that involves searching your site. This way, you let them read your site and maybe even attract them so they'll be back not for the contest, but for the posts you made.

I must admit, I'm one of those guys who sometimes visit a site, then leaves if nothing catches my eye quickly. And I'm sure there are a lot out there like me. By involving your site in your contest, you are allowing them to read some of your post. Chances are, they'll find something interesting. Just make sure that you have good contents.
