Think of any product or service be it Google's new Nexus phone or a holiday from Thomas Cook. Has it been advertised? the answer for 99.9% is yes. Why? Because the product or service is new, no-one knows about it. The same theory applies to blogs/websites.
No-one knows about a new blog or website do they? They haven't had the chance to go on it because they don't know it exists. That's why it is extremely important for a blogger to fund in advertising his blog/website to the world, just like every business does.
I have been advertising AskWillOnline using two different advertising programs: Ad Dynamo and Google Adwords. And since then, I have had the highest amount of return visits suggesting that people clicked on my adverts, saw my website, and carried on keeping up to date on my website.
Ad Dynamo Advertising

|Google Adwords Advertising|
Google Adwords AdvertisingNow, without question, this is the best out there on the market. My bounce rate with Adwords have been 24% which is astonishing: 76% of people that click on Adwords ads are actually interested in ask will online! It's easy to use but you will have to fund more money into Adwords, as there are more users so to show your ads will mean bidding at a higher price, say 50-60p.
Either way, Advertising your website/blog online is the way to go if your just starting a website or blog. Although it can be expensive, like businesses, only do it for as long as it takes to get consistent views. It took me 2 months and cost me £50, that's all. You may think that's a lot but for what you get in return, its nothing. Without advertising your blog/website online, you will find it will be very difficult getting consistent traffic to your blog/website.
