Make a list of some popular blogs in your niche that are getting enough traffic especially from these countries (Check out their Alexa stats). Follow those blogs, comment on their blog posts and build better relationships with the blog owners.
Do the same for atleast one month. After that, send them a polite request to write a guest post for them. Once your request gets approved, you are ready to drive foreign traffic.
Write and submit your best articles there and see the results. You’ll surely notice a good amount of traffic landing to your blog from High paying Google Adsense countries. More traffic = More Money!
