3: What type of networking do you think is better to enhance your traffic to the blog?
Tricky question.Network to your interest and strength. Online and offline people know when you fake it. Whether networking or not traffic starts with making content which your audience will like.

Share thirty percent of own post and seventy percent of other posts which you find useful, entertaining.
