Invite your readers to connect with you on StumbleUpon Facebook Twitter, Pinterest
Many of us have those buttons on our blog if you don’t you should get them. The more places people can find you and your blog posts the more that will improve your blog traffic.
2.Post During High Traffic Times
Pay attention to when your blog gets the most readers.
People don’t normally read blogs at 2am so why post then? Try to post during the “high traffic” hours and that can be different depending on the niche’ of your particular blog. Find that sweet spot and post during that time.
3. Be A Problem Solver
Although I love to hear about your baby and birthday’s as you know I recently posted about Matilda’s 1st birthday it’s important to remember that readers have problems and they are looking for answers. If you provide answers then your blog will be the go to place for them to visit. Solve problems.
4. Guest Post On Popular blogs
I know you have heard this about a million times so here goes one million and one. Guest blog on a prominent blog and that will increase and improve your blog traffic. I have two coming up one on Laura Roeder and one with Dany Iny from Firepole marketing so watch for those announcements soon!
5. Engage your reader
I know we are all busy believe me I really know! With a one year old getting into everything and a crazy schedule I know as women and moms we are B-U-S-Y. However try to respond to comments and emails it makes people feel important and after all don’t we all want to feel love and be made to feel important ?
6. Link within your posts
If you have a post about “How To Make Money blogging” edit some of your other posts to include links to the “How To Make Money Blogging ” post and use that anchor text it will help you with Google . You can also use a plugin to help with that Seo Autolinker does a similar function.
7. Tag your posts for success
WordPress ( another reason I love it) has a great plugin called Simple Tags. By using it to find the appropriate tags for your post you can drive targeted traffic to your site. Nothing worse then looking for a chocolate cake recipe and landing on a post with a chocolate colored purse. If you don’t use WordPress just make sure you tag your post with the appropriate tags to help people searching find your topics.
8. Stay on Topic
If your blog is about how to make money blogging then try to make most of your posts centered on that topic. If I were coming to your site thinking I would get recipes but found nothing but clothing reviews that would be confusing. I know I have a few giveaways on my site but I try to always come back to the blogging tips and how to make money blogging and improve blog traffic. Stay on topic. Your audience will know what to expect and it will keep them coming back for more.
9. Join Blog Carnivals. I know some may thing it’s an old method but it still works so use it.
A blog carnival is where you add a post that is in the same topic as a few other bloggers and together it creates a better audience for your post.
10. Participate on Q & A forums but don’t spam. Just answer questions and post helpful links and they will visit your site for more.
11. Get media attention. On the day my blog was featured on Yahoo! l I went from about 700 visitors to over 14,000 in three days and when the month was over it shot past 18,000. Media is probably the best way to get a huge spike in traffic. If you’re not sure how to do that let me know in the comments I will be starting some sessions soon to help you gain traffic and media attention for your blog. In addition to that you can grab a copy of Get Famous and reap the same results other bloggers who have tried it are achieving.
