Website Traffic: Respond to Someone Else to Bring Readers to Your Posts

Website Traffic: Respond to Someone Else to Bring Readers to Your Posts

There’s a specific strategy on YouTube that you can use directly on your site to bring in visitors. It’s simply responding to someone else’s content in a reply post. For example, if you’re in the weight loss niche and someone posts about the danger of carbs, you can create a response post about the benefit of carbs.  You can then leave a partial comment on their video and a link to your post.

You don’t have to disagree with everyone, either.

You can agree with them and chime in with a response post in agreement while adding your own insights to the discussion.

Either way, make sure you credit the original content creator. They will often post another reply to you, which means their followers will see the link and visit your site. This can lead to an online friendship, JVs and other partnerships with the person.

Pros & Cons of This Method of Website Traffic:


  • Low cost
  • Easy to do
  • Makes online friends!
  • Increases traffic


  • Can take a few attempts to get it right
  • Can be hard to find the right content at the right time


The key to getting this right is to select a rising star. If you do this with a big name, they'll ignore you. This happens to them all the time and they're too busy to respond. You might get lucky, but the odds are in your favour when you select a rising star.
