When I posted my 1st month review blog few days back, I compared most of the people’s monthly reviews with mine and was pretty happy to see my numbers . So I thought of writing a blog on how / what I did to gain such huge numbers in a month.
It is easy to write a blog but hard to build traffic on it . So these are the steps which I followed to gain traffic on my website.
You must have probably heard this before the term “content is king” . Yes the most successful content is the kind that meets a “specific need”.Think about your audience and stand in their shoes , what type of blogs do you love to read?? The one which is useful to you? Or the one in which the author writes about her personal life ?? No one is interested to read about your personal life unless they follow your website frequently. You are a beginner and you are struggling to build some traffic, so blog about what is useful to your readers.
Evergreen content :
Evergreen content is the kind of content that can live forever on the web and that time won’t make irrelevant. Some examples for evergreen content are recipes, blogging tips, travel tips etc.
I believe that a powerful headline is most important than the actual post lol. Don’t feel shy to experiment with different headlines. Share your post multiple times with different headlines and see which style works best.
If you see my website it contains 17 blogs in my first month , which means I published a blog almost every alternate day . YES , If you are a New blogger then you have to post your blogs as much as possible and not once a week ( like professionals do) .I use to write 4-5 blogs ever weekend and publish them accordingly on weekdays. Which means I get a whole week to promote my blogs.
This is the very important step which every successful blogger follows. Set a time and stick to it. Post all your blogs on the same time whether you post every alternate day or once a week . By doing this your followers & Frequent visitors will have an idea when & at what time your new post is going to be published.
This is the heart for your website. As I said in my previous blog , views before promoting were ZERO and after promoting were morethan 6000 . If you are posting a blog then the other day should be your promoting day. Promote as much as you can on all the social networking sites. I promoted mostly in groups of Facebook , boards on Pinterest , and shared magazines with other bloggers on Flipboard. My 40% views are from Facebook , 40% from Pinterest + flipboard+ StumbleUpon, and 20% views from twitter, Reddit, Bloglovin and G+.
Interact with other bloggers by commenting on their blog posts. You never know you might get an opportunity of guest blogging on their website someday which results in building a huge traffic on your website.
Participate in Q+ A sites :
Everyday thousands of people ask questions on the web. There are thousands of websites where they search answers for. Some popular websites which I followed are Yahoo! Answers , Answers.com , Quora , StackExchange.
Sharing buttons :
Make sure your social media sharing buttons (including subscriptions) are CLEARLY visible to your readers. Add them on top and bottom of your content , it makes easy for readers to spread the word.
So that’s it , I followed all the above steps last month to gain a huge traffic and hoping to learn new things in the coming months. I hope these little tips would have helped you, like they helped me.Best of Luck and please don’t forget to subscribe for more updates !!!
you’ve got your own tips for increasing traffic to your website?? I’d love to hear & learn them 🙂
