15 Best Ways To Get Traffic To Your Blog
Here’s what I implemented and, what I think, contributed to the increase in traffic.
- Participate on social media platforms – If you haven’t jumped on the social media bandwagon, it’s time. The old adage, “Out of sight, out of mind,” applies when it comes to social media. Be active and involved.
- Create interactive blog posts – Content is king, queen, and everything else royal these days. Your content needs to be interactive. Ask questions that allude to a problem and its solution. The more the reader can relate, the better your chances of them sticking around.
- Include keywords throughout your site – If you are not familiar with keywords, the best place to start is with a good keyword tool. There are many out there. My preference is the Google Keyword Tool. There’s also ToolFeast for powerful longtail keywords. Both of these are free, you just need to create an account.
- Link you posts on social networks like StumbleUpon, Quora, Reddit – These social networks acts as a type of search engine called a discovery engine. For example, StumbleUpon uses individual readers’ preferences, likes, and dislikes, etc., to tailor search results by finding or discovering even the most obscure content the reader wants and likes. It’s popular among marketers for a variety of reasons, which include the ability to rate posts, share pictures, and add videos too.
- Make your website search engine friendly – Your website content should relate to the needs and wants of your target market. While visitors will share website posts and other info, search engines play the most prominent role in your success. Keep them happy by beginning with a quality website theme or template. Poorly coded or outdated themes can do more harm than good.
- Create engaging headlines – Make sure your blog posts have well-crafted titles and headlines as well as sub-headings, when applicable. Your titles and headlines should be engaging, contain power words to encourage action, peak curiosity, and when possible, allude to the solution of a problem.
- Include links to relevant posts – Links are important, both incoming and outgoing links. Make it a priority to link related posts on your site to each other. This is often referred to as “internal” linking. In addition, occasionally link to related content on expert sites (“external” linking). Linking to expert or authority sites can help to elevate your authority standing. When a website refers to and links to your site, it is referred to as an “incoming” link.
- Ask questions in your headlines – When you create a headline question, it’s important that your target market can identify with the question. The more your reader can relate to the topic or problem, the more likely he, or she is to click through to find the answer. Here is a good example – “How Are Negative Thoughts Limiting Your Paycheck?”
- Participate on topic related sites – Make time to interact on similar sites and in groups that discuss topics such as the ones covered on your website. Your visibility and consistently knowledgeable contributions can create curiosity about your website and encourage others to visit. Make sure you add a link to your site in your profile or the website area, when possible. As search engines index these other sites, you may find that your site moves up on search result pages and you get more traffic.
- Keep writing fresh, new content – Don’t write a few blog posts or articles and stop. Your readers and search engines are hungry for your information. Add new content on a regular basis to keep them both happy and returning to your website Niche Starter Packs provides high quality PLR (Private Label Rights) packs to people who need more content. They have a wide array of topics.
- Collect and review traffic data – Learn how to collect and use traffic data to analyze your web traffic, marketing endeavors, and advertising campaigns. Keeping track of where your traffic comes from, what actions visitors take, and where they go, enables you to identify what works, what doesn’t work, and what you can do to draw more targeted traffic to your website. I use Google Analytics for tracking my site.
- Add text to your website images – The Google bot cannot “see” a photo so add tags, descriptions, and other meta-data to images along with text for site visitors. This encourages visitors and search engines to come back repeatedly. I use Canva which is pretty easy to use and it’s totally free!
- Join Facebook groups relevant to your niche – When you want to draw traffic to your website, it’s important to join several different groups on Facebook and become active in them. Once you gain trust, make friends, and gain followers, you can promote your business appropriately in these groups. FB groups also may help with any questions or concerns you may have about blogging in general.
- Create a Pinterest Business Account – Pinterest is my #1 traffic driver to my blog.
- Create a free printable worksheet or challenges to visitors – I created a squat challenge since my blog’s focus is also fitness. The challenge went viral on Pinterest which attracted a lot of traffic.
And there you have it. In order to get the best results, give it some time and be patient. Find what works best for you and, most importantly, for your audience and the results will follow!
