So lately I have being on various whatsapp groups which has being turned to a spamming ground, if you ask me who are the people who do this daily; I will reply by saying “Bloggers are the main spammers in every whatsapp groups, disturbing social media .
What I do not really understand nowadays is if whatsapp now indexed sites, but the truth remains ” it is becoming annoying daily”. You can hardly be in a whatsapp group where everything will be normal like it ought to be.
I will be discussing five media apps you need to pull huge traffic to your blog without having to kill people with unnecessary updates from your blogs.

1. Stumble upon.

This is a sharing app which is used by almost everyone in the world. A lot of people who has one or two important and interesting information to share with the world at large. I got to realise about this app few months ago and since them I hardly share to my whatsapp, whatsapp will not indexed my blog posts but some universal apps like stumble upon will, people from all area across the world gets to stumble upon my articles and if it is catchy enough, I get the best traffic I can and that is a whole lot of help to my site.
Chatting app won’t give me that, stumble upon also allows you to pick interest and from that interests, you post is being highlighted.

2. Google +.

I have met a lot journalist who are just popular through chatting apps like whatsapp and their small society, that is exactly what whatsapp help you do; making you big in your small society and depriving you of reaching the world. We have a lot of active users on Google Plus, and the most interesting thing is you can add hash tags to your post on Google Plus which makes it more interestingly fast to be seen by people and you can also join communities on Google Plus as this help to increase your trending abilities.


This is a very interesting and highly great app to be used by any intelligent journalist, I used the adjective intelligent because imgur is not just about posting or sharing your post, it is all about trying to start a conversation among audience you do not have an idea of who they are or what they are, but you need to be able to get hold of their emotions and you are good to go with getting good traffic to your site, don’t misquote me; I’m not saying you should manipulate them to get traffic but I’m saying you need to get to their emotions.

4. Narialand.

Narialand seems to work for journalists who deals mainly with gossips, entertainment and funny arts posts, but for journalist like myself who do a lot of good and comprehensive writing, you really need to be very active and serious to get good traffic. Nigerians do not like reading and this is one of the reasons I really do not like to post on Narialand.

5. Vanguard community.

This is an app that has a lot of young and vibrate reader using it across the world, though most people available on this platform are Nigerians but at least you will be sure a certain number of readers will see your post and the very often they see it, the more it registers in their mind. Then subsequently you can add facebook and other media to get good traffic ,depending on the one that works for you.
