Get More Blog Traffic: Awesome Free Services for Bloggers


This morning I spent a bit of time working on increasing the traffic to my blog. I came across a great resource in the form of a list of links to blog directories and news aggregators that you can submit your blog articles to so that you are able to reach wider audiences. Boosting your blog traffic is very important, especially if you are trying to make money from advertising and affiliate programs.

I really have to say that the best thing I did today that had almost instantaneous results was submitting my blog to StumbleUpon. I kid you not, my daily average of about 8 to 10 unique visitors per day skyrocketed to 118 in a matter of a few hours.

Boom! Traffic stats after submission to StumbleUpon

Don’t believe me? Check out this screenshot of my analytics page from this afternoon!

Anyway, onto my compiled list.Before I continue I must give full credit to PowerHomeBiz.com from which this list comes from. However the list was a little outdated so I have taken the liberty of checking the links and removing the ones that are no longer in existence or no longer relevant.

As an overview the list contains links to the following services:

  • Blog Readers
  • Ping Services
  • Social Bookmarking Sites
  • Blog Directories
  • Paid Blog Directories
  • News Aggregators
  • Other Directories

1. Blog Readers

2. Ping Services

3. Social Bookmarking Sites

4. Blog Directories

5. News Aggregators

6. Other Directories

That’s the end of the list!

There should be plenty there to keep you busy for a while. I haven’t even checked out half of the items on the list myself. I hope these are of assistance. As always if you have a comment or a suggestion leave me a comment below.

Until next time, happy blogging and thanks for reading!

  1. Thanks for the comment, this is a WordPress website, yes. Currently I am running the following plug-ins:

  2. This is a great resource. I’ve had some success with StumbleUpon before, but noting like the numbers you got. How many followers do you have in StumbleUpon?

  3. I think the StumbleUpon spike came from an article I wrote about Starcraft 2, which at the time had just been released and was hugely popular. It is rare to get spikes like that on SU consistently though. I think I have about two followers on StumbleUpon lol.

    Do you have many followers?

  4. Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers

  5. My brother encouraged I’d quite possibly similar to this website. Your dog ended up being completely perfect. The following submit definitely created this day. You can not imagine precisely how so much moment I had put together invested because of this data! Thanks!

  6. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this. Also,
    the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

  7. I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by
    him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem.
    You are amazing! Thanks!

  8. If you like to stay ahead of the fashion trends then accessorising with fashion jewellery is a great
    way of doing that. Usually, modeling agencies provide
    an open casting through which upcoming models or newcomers have a chance of
    being selected. Frissell is an American photographer, who
    was born in 1907.
