Since I posted the Year 1 Stats a few people emailed to ask how on earth Blogstorm got 11,200 visitors from the Digital Point forums.
The answer is simple, I created a thread offering something no DP members could resist – an Amazing new way to build thousands of one way natural links for free. This thread got 960 replies before the moderators closed it a couple of weeks ago.
The killer part of the thread is that people had to reply to get the script so the thread kept getting bumped up to the top of the category it was listed in and never got buried.
You are probably wondering how I got the traffic to my site? I simply sent all the respondents a link to this post. Unlike most free things on DP this was actually useful and had no catches.
Pretty simple way to market a blog if you ask me.
