How to generate more traffic to your blog

Whether you’re trying to grow your audience, increase the number of subscribers or just make more money from ads, blog traffic is the thing that will catapult you there. As a blogger and freelancer, it also pays my bills and gives me more opportunities to do things I love. And in this post, I’m gonna show you how I was able to generate organic traffic for my blogs in a short amount of time. So if you want to get more people on your website, keep reading!

Use SEO to your advantage

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of optimizing your blog for search engines. This can help you reach a more targeted audience, build a stronger brand and get more subscribers.

Google, Yahoo! and Bing are the main search engines that drive traffic to blogs. Keyword research tools include SEMrush, Moz and Ahrefs among others. You also want to start building an email list with a tools like the TW3 Lead Marketing System. As said many time, “the loot is in the list!” The larger your list and with tools like the TW3 system, you can drive traffic to your blog at the push of a button.

Take advantage of other’s email list

As I mentioned in a training a week or so ago, the fastest way to drive traffic when starting is leverage other list owners email list. The solo ad strategy I show in that free training will show you how you can buy clicks that convert very cheap. Knowing that you are going to get a guaranteed amount of clicks and what their typical conversion rate has been, is powerful data.

This strategy is great because it allows you to start driving traffic via email marketing even if you are just starting out, or the content you are wanting traffic to is not congruent with the list you have built. Having the ability to use another marketers list that has already had a proven track record is very strong, and makes your efforts way more predictable.

Be active on social media

If you want to grow your blog, you need to be active on social media. Social media is an important part of any online presence, and it’s one that can help you generate more traffic if used properly.

You should use the following tips to get started:

  • Create a Facebook page for yourself or your blog so that people can find it easily. Like other pages in your niche, as well as pages from competitors who are also doing well (this will help you understand what works). If there are any common interests between the two of them (like sports or cooking), comment on some of their posts so they know who you are.
  • Create a Twitter account and start tweeting regularly about relevant topics related to whatever topic matters most on your website – this will not only allow potential readers/customers access but also help build credibility among industry peers who may share content later down the road.* Use Instagram and YouTube together with hashtags like #bloggingtipsforbeginners

Integrate Pinterest into your strategy

Pinterest is a great way to generate traffic. If you’re not using Pinterest, it’s time to start.

Pinterest is also a great way to build links back to your blog and website, which is something everyone should be doing as part of their SEO strategy.

Pinterest users are often interested in the same topics that you write about, so they’re perfect prospects for clicking through to your site (and signing up for your email list).

And finally, we want our readership numbers on our blogs and websites because these numbers help establish trust with potential customers or clients who might see us quoted somewhere else online or offline (e.g., in an article about blogging).

Use free guides, checklists and ebooks to generate traffic and leads

Giving away free guides, checklists and ebooks can be a great way to generate traffic. Make sure that you’re clear about what your reader will learn and how they will benefit from reading your guide, checklist or ebook. It’s also important that you make it clear why your reader should act now, like by offering a discount if they download the guide within 24 hours of reading the email announcement of it being available for download.

Guest post on other blogs

Guest posting on other blogs is one of the most effective ways to drive traffic to your site. Here’s how it works:

  • Find a blog in your niche that isn’t overly competitive with you. If there’s no way of knowing this, just find the most authoritative blogs in your industry and try sending an email to the editor or owner asking if they’d like more guest posts from you.
  • Make sure you have something valuable to offer them and their readers. Think about what makes sense for that blog’s audience—are they interested in learning more about SEO? Do they want some advice on starting out as a freelance writer? Whatever it is, make sure it fits with what’s already being talked about on that particular website—and be sure and show them how you can help!

Find underused hashtags and use them in your posts

To get your content in front of an audience that’s not already familiar with your blog, you must use hashtags. Hashtags are used to categorize and organize social media posts and make it easier for people to find relevant content.

If you’re using Twitter, there are two simple rules when it comes to hashtags:

  • Use the # sign before a word or phrase that is relevant to your post (e.g., #blogging, #contentmarketing). The hashtag should be easy for readers to understand without having any prior knowledge of what the hashtag means.
  • Do not exceed two hashtags per tweet without good reason (e.g., if there’s an event or conference being discussed).

Implement link building

One of the most important things you can do to increase traffic to your blog is add links. This is because links are the currency of the web, and they have been since search engines like Google and Bing were first created. Links are a sign of authority, trustworthiness, relevance, popularity and quality. They also indicate engagement on your site (more about this in just a moment).

If you want more people to read what you’ve written on your website or blog—and if you’re reading this article right now then I’m assuming that’s true—the best way for people who haven’t visited your site yet to find that content is by searching for it using one of these search engines (Google/Bing). When someone enters keywords related  to what they’re looking for into their search bar (e.g., “best fish tacos”) then these sites will then return any pages from across the internet containing those terms which have been linked back directly from other websites’ homepages or internal pages.

Crank out video content

Video content is an effective way to get your message across. It’s easier for viewers to digest, and it’s more likely to be shared on social media. Video is also a great way to connect with your audience and build trust over time, because you can show real passion for what you do.

In the next section of this post, we’ll discuss how blogging can help grow your business by increasing brand awareness and driving traffic back to your site.

Optimize the text on your site for conversions.

Optimize the text on your site for conversions.

In SEO terms, this means making sure that the keywords in your site’s content are relevant to what you want people to find. Your title, headers, H1 tags (the big headings), and body text should all be optimized for conversion (i.e., they should contain high-trafficking keywords).

Here is an example of a poorly optimized title:

  • “How To Build A Blog That Grows Traffic – Generate More Traffic From Google Search Results With These Simple Techniques”
  • This is a bunch of random words strung together without any strategic thought behind them! What does it mean? How does it help someone who needs help building their own blog? No one knows! Instead we could do something like this:
  • “How I Built A Blog That Grows Traffic – Generate More Traffic From Google Search Results With These Simple Techniques”

Implement multiple strategies to grow targeted blog traffic that generates more qualified subscribers and sales.

As you can see, these three strategies are not mutually exclusive. There is significant overlap between all three, which makes sense considering they’re all designed to drive traffic to your blog. For example, if you start out with the goal of improving your overall SEO strategy (Strategy 1), it makes sense that you would likely have an easier time ranking for your target keywords (Strategy 2) and attracting more visitors who are more likely to subscribe and convert into customers (Strategy 3).

Your goal should be using multiple strategies at once so that you can maximize your efforts in growing targeted blog traffic that generates more qualified subscribers and sales. A good rule of thumb is implementing one new strategy every month; however this will vary depending on the type of content or platform being used. The key here is being consistent and regularly measuring the effectiveness of each strategy over time so that none get left behind!

Conclusion

If you’re looking to increase your blog traffic, these tips are just the beginning. While they can help get you started on targeting new visitors and readers, they won’t continue to benefit you in the long run unless you put in the hard work of maintaining them. Putting together strategies that fit your goals and staying dedicated to them will ensure that this initial boost leads to something bigger down the line!
