As a Blogger what is your favorite technique/strategy for growing your followers?

Have you joined one of those blog comment exchange sites?
Do you do giveaways to grow your followers?

I want to hear about what you have done? Did it work for you?

I am currently doing my first giveaway to grow my blog.

I am also doing comment exchange in a Facebook Group, Bloggers Worldwide.

A give away and Facebook are awesome ways to drive traffic. You're off to a great start!

For me, I do a bit of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and Social Media like Facebook, Pinterest, etc. Finding different sites, forums, groups, etc. where people may share an interest in your content, product, or service may be a good thing to try as well.

Best of luck and I hope you get tons of quality traffic.

For the longterm, SEO pays the greatest dividends, but things have changed so much in the last 6 months.

Short term, you can gain a lot of traffic with Pinterest. Post insteresting stuff, don't spam, and have a link in your profile that leads to your blog.

Here's what's worked for me. In approx. order of effectiveness:

1) Networking with other bloggers/ guest posting.
2) Word of mouth from existing followers - ask for the share!
3) Off-line networking - tell folks I meet, hand out biz cards, etc.
4) Helpful comments on blogs, forums, groups.
5) Pinterest is a good source of referral traffic.
6) Basic SEO to get organic traffic
7) Facebook Contests (though do less of this now).

A giveaway is a great idea! I would love to do a giveaway, but I'm not quite sure what I would give yet. As for the methods I use to build traffic, I mostly rely on Pinterest and Stumble Upon. They have brought the most traffic for me. I also use SEO and I'm just beginning to use Facebook. My blog is still pretty new, so I'm still finding out what works best for bringing followers in.

Giveaway is the great idea to generating followers and for this you must have your own domain because in free blogging is quite hard to give review every time.

I do social media, social media networking sites, comment and share other bloggers content. I use some safelists as they now have social media incorporated in them and some let you put your blog url in them too.
