Do you know that, the way we drive traffic to blogging tips niche is totally different from the way news niche drive traffic to theirs? Yes, bloggers that are in the blogging tip niche can get quality web traffic from almost everywhere while the news and entertainment Niche can only get traffic from selected areas.

The truth is – if you spend time driving low quality traffic to your blog (traffic that are not related to your niche), you will only waste your precious time. Or let me put it this way – Unrelated traffic source – No engagement – Low/no income – You’ll become a frustrated blogger

Promoting a blogging tip niche blog is not that hard to do because almost all the Facebook group, Linkedin group, Google+ group and other social site groups focus mainly on that niche.
