Waiting for your blog to draw substantial traffic?
There are several techniques you can implement to help generate more traffic to your blog.
Try a few of these different techniques and stick to the ones that work for you.
Post articles frequently on your blog.
Fresh content posted at regular intervals draws attention from both search engines as well as your audience.
Also, having more posts translates into greater chances of getting your blog ranked for several keywords, which ultimately brings in more traffic.
Increase your blog’s chances of getting indexed by search engines by submitting the blog to search engines.
For some quick traffic, select your top posts and post them on social bookmarking sites such as Reddit and StumbleUpon.
These websites have a huge readership and if your post makes it to their hot list, you stand to gain a lot in terms of traffic and exposure.
Inter-link your blog posts.
Choose a post on your blog with good search engine rankings. Include a link to this post from other posts on your blog; use the title of the well-ranking post as the anchor text for these links.
Edit your blog posts to be relevant for linking.
Publish links to your blog posts on social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
Invite your friends and followers on these platforms to read the post and share their opinion.
Plan the publishing time.
Observe the days and time when your blog visits are at their peak and publish your posts during these hours to draw maximum traffic.
Use web analytic tools to analyze traffic details.
Base your blog posts on topics that are useful to your readers.
Avoid promotional content on your brand, products or services.
Focus on delivering information that offers solution to problems, or information that help your readers in making well-informed purchasing decisions. Include a dose of entertainment as well; share images showing your office celebrations, employees and other such, now and then.
Subscribe to newsletters or blog posts of industry leaders to keep abreast of the latest developments in your industry.
As hot developments occur, the search for information increases enormously.
You can leverage this opportunity by writing posts on the hot topics and in turn attract huge traffic.
Write guest posts.
Approach popular blogs with a great article piece. Getting your article published on blogs related to your industry gets you more exposure and audience.
It’s also beneficial for the other party involved, as they’ll be getting substantial content.
Draw traffic with blog comments.
Respond to reader comments on your blog posts to convey that you appreciate their inputs and give them a reason to keep visiting your blog.
Secondly, post comments whenever you come across an impressive post elsewhere. Include a link to your blog when you comment so that visitors reading your comment who want to reach you, will be able to find your blog.
Dofollow blogs are great places to post comments.
Drive blog traffic by sharing the URL at every opportunity.
Emails, brochures and flyers, business cards and all other office stationery are some great examples.
Write impressive ad copies and post to free classified websites like Craigslist.
