However, illegal methods won’t work for long term. So our today’s topic is about increasing our Blog’s traffic by applying some real methods which are recommended even by Pro-bloggers.
I will share some tips with you guys which has helped me in driving traffic to my blogs. I am blogging for last 2 years and mostly have spent my time on researching the internet to find only real ways for success. So there won’t be any short term trick in my list. But yeah, these tips would be an comb for cutting original methods.
How to increase Blog’s traffic?
In order to drive traffic to your blog, first you must have a blog or website for it. Having had a website, you can increase its visitors by applying given 10 most popular tips:
Less Content But Quality Content
You can consider many websites which have very less content but enjoying a smart traffic everyday. So you should also consider this point and always try to create something qualitative, not garbage. The real example is: ask yourself that would you like the content/post which you’ve written for your blog? If yes, then make it public :-).
Optimize Your Content
Without optimizing content, it is just in an empty box; where anyone doesn’t know about it. So make it sure, you’ve submitted your content to search engines respectively. Especially to Google & Bing, Yahoo will itself follow bing.
Use Accurate Post Titles
This is the most confused fact of SEO for newbies. Using correct titles for your blog post can bring great results in terms of traffic. As you might know it is the first line, which is crawled by search engines spiders for the whole story. So make sure it is 100% correct. For getting an idea about it, you can use Google Adword Keyword Tool. Where you will find which exact keyword is world wide searched mostly for a specific query.
Also this is the another example of using correct post titles, I’m assuming this post as Example:
Good “10 Tips to drive free traffic to your blog” or “How to drive free Traffic to your blog?”
Bad ” Learn how to bring more traffic to your blog or my blog?“
Sitemaps are very very important in order to drive huge traffic to your blog. If your blog is having hundreds and thousands of pages and you haven’t submitted sitemaps to search engines yet then don’t expect visitors to come. Just Go to Google webmaster tools and submit your blog’s sitemap to Google. Also visit Bing webmaster tools to submit your sitemap to Bing.
Produce more unique content
It is same like one man and eleven men. If you’ve a single friend then you’re a less power man; but if you’ve eleven men friends then you’ve man power. Same if you have 10 posts on your blog its mean only those people will visit who need those ten posts, the rest won’t come to you. So producing more unique content is must in order to increase blog traffic.
Be social doesn’t mean; using facebook all the day :D. But its mean, whenever you publish new content on your blog, just share them on all social network websites at least on: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+ and Digg. Also share your content on Facebook groups but remember, only share your content on those group that have more than 500 members. Less members won’t make difference.
Find New Stories
Do you know? one single post can drive thousands of visitors a day; But how? well, by a breaking news or a hidden story. Always try to visit the popular websites and official blogs once a day, and if you see a breaking news or update; instantly write an article about that and publish it with an image. So that post may bring tons of visitors in hours. It is called first see, first publish.
Use Popular Magazine Sites
There are many popular magazines type sites like Zimbio.com, People.com and so on. So make it sure you’ve registered your blog there and they will automatically publish your content on their websites via RSS. So you can receive good traffic from them. But keep in mind, this is only for celebrity blogs not for technology blogs.
Find Active Blog Directories
Blog directories are no longer the best way to drive free traffic but, still there are some directories which are the best and working just like search engines. For example: Bloggers.com is an active website which is used by millions of Bloggers everyday. You can submit your blog to this directory for free and they will send you a lot of free traffic. All you need to do is; just make a profile on Bloggers.com and register your blog for free. That’s all.
Be an active commentator
Always go to other websites and blogs which are related to your niche, comment there and leave your recent post’s link, so other people who are visiting that site will also come to your website. At least, ten comments a day will definitely make difference in traffic.
