Like many bloggers, I dream of a day when I can leave my 9-5 job and make a great living on the internet. My travel recommendation site, Things You Should Do, will reach the milestone of 500,000 unique visitors during the next few weeks. I’ve experimented with lots of different methods to grow my traffic and recently discovered Flickr as a power tool.
My strategy of using Flickr groups to build community and create stickiness is paying good dividends. I’ve only just begun, and I’m receiving about 100 visitors per day from Flickr with an incredibly low bounce rate of 12.14% and an average time on site of over 4 minutes.
