99% bloggers main problem is getting traffic to their blog, when we search online for web traffic tips we do get so many tips but all the articles will have the same tips as create unique content, concentrate on social media, actively participate in blogger communities and forums, post articles in bookmarking sites, answer questions in Q&A sites like Quora and Yahoo answers.
I think most of us are doing these things to get traffic, some of us are successful some are not; recently I came across one tool which has unique way of getting traffic to our blog compared to the traditional methods.
Before going to discuss about that tool I want to share some important advantages of that tool, when I say advantages you might think that is premium tool, for this question my answer is “NO” it is absolutely free to use with sufficient limit.
If we want to become successful in blogging career we should have good relationship with some influential bloggers related to our niche, we know who are those influential persons and our targeted audience are ready to read and follow their instructions.
If we share their content regularly by mentioning their name in our social media profiles then they will start recognizing our name and it will initiate the first impression in their mind.
Now coming to our tool Snip.ly review, it will help us to share our influential people’s content with call to action button at the bottom of the page which sends traffic back to our blog if somebody clicks on that button.

Snip.ly dashboard provides all the information about our snips we created, clicks we got on those links, average pages per visit, average time on the landing page, average time on site, and bounce rate.
Here is the screenshot of my dashboard.
Snip.ly is not absolutely free for unlimited usage, it only allows free users to use only 1000 clicks per month on snip.ly links if you want to use more than this free quota then we have to go for the premium subscription.
I think 1000 clicks are more than enough for the month to get the maximum benefit out of snip.ly to drive decent traffic to our blog.
