Like For Like?



As a blogger, wouldn't it great to have people come to our blog and read our stuff? It creates a good feeling, makes us happy and appreciated. It reinforces us to write and publish more.

In the blogging world this kinda 'get the reader' thing is called traffic.

We want more traffic to our blog. Make them left their feedback in the comment section, saying how much they get helped by information we share. And hopefully they also willingly share it to more people. Makes our stuff go viral.

So do I. I'm no much different with you. I wish and expect the same about getting more traffic in my blog. And one of the thing I do to get more traffic is joining several blogging groups in Facebook, locally and internationally (based on where the member come from).

While it does help to generate traffic, it also makes me see how people promote their content.

Some bloggers promote their blog by a so called 'like to like' marketing, or 'visit to visit', 'comment for comment' and kind of those. I'm not sure how much it helps to generate traffic for them, but I personally feel the insencirity. It's like saying, 'Hey, I'll help you but you must help me as the payback'.

Of course there are nothing wrong about it. If it works good on you, then do it. For me, it just doesn't fit my blogging values of sharing.

I personally promoting my blog by first, tell people a brief about my post. It serve as a short introduction, a teaser. It also serve as a promise I have to deliver. By that, I want to get not only more traffic, but also the right traffic. I try to tell in the first place, that if this is not what you're looking for, don't waste your time

I simply believe not all traffic is a good traffic.

But of course it just me. You don't have to do what I do. Do what works on you and fit your value. Whatever it is, I sincerely wish you and your blog get the best you deserve to get.

  1. Setuju.. Dulu mungkin aku ngelakuin cara2 begitu, like for like, comment ke blog orang yg udh mampir ke blogku... Tp skr, aku lbh memilih. Kalo memang blog yg aku baca bagus, tanpa dia BW balik ke akupun, aku akan ttp baca blognya :) .

    Juga sebaliknya.. Aku biasanya bakal bw balik ke orang2 yg udh mampir di blogku. Tp kalo kuliat isi blognya ga menarik, maaf aja, kemungkinan aku bw balik bakal kecil :). Jd skr ga mau lg hanya mengejar traffic palsu. Toh blogku ini tidak di monetisasi. So traffic sebenernya ga terlalu perlu buatku, yg hanya menulis krn hobby :)

    1. Iya mbak, kesannya malah nggak tulus. Ya emang sih, menyenangkan kalau ada orang yang mampir ke blog saya, baca tulisan saya (yang seringkali acak-acakan), lebih-lebih menginspirasi mereka.

      Cuman kok ya, secara pribadi berasanya nggak sreg aja. Seperti, "Aku dah ke blog kamu ya, sekarang giliranmu lho ya."

      Maksa banget dan kentara pula.

      Mungkin karena dari awal ngeblog niatnya untuk berbagi kali ya. Jadi fokus saya adalah gimana membuat konten yang bermanfaat dulu.

      Setuju nggak?
