Try incorporating more DIY’s or “how to” posts. Provide posts on sought-after information to ensure your posts will be pinned & re-pinned. If you’re not sure what those sorts of posts would be than just look at the things you’ve personally googled or searched Pinterest for.
2. SCHEDULE POSTS:
Working full-time can affect how interesting your social media outlets are. I get it, you simply cannot be tweeting or posting on Facebook on your phone while at work. Tools such as Laterbro, Tweetdeck, and Hootsuite will allow you to keep your social media outlets active without actually being on them all the time. I also like to use these tools during the times I notice a “traffic slump” like when I am on holidays.
Make sure your content is so engaging that it makes readers want to come back for more each day. Building a loyal readership will help boost your blog’s traffic each day but the only way to do that is by creating content that is so engaging that it makes people want to read more and more.
4. TWITTER CHATS:
Get involved with your blogger community by taking part in blog chat sessions on Twitter. Each Wednesday at 1:00 PM (PST) there is a chat on twitter for #bbloggers but there are also #FBLchats, #Fblogger chats, and surely many, many more. These chats always provide interesting & useful information on various topics relating to being a blogger. While you’re discussing these topics/ asking questions, you also build blogger relationships with fellow bloggers which in turn will boost your blogs traffic and long-term loyal followers.
5. GUEST POST:
Getting invited or asking to guest post on a fellow bloggers blog is a great way to build your audience as well as theirs.
Since adding my blog to Bloglovin my pageviews have jumped, and it’s one of my top traffic sources. Since this platform is being used by thousands & thousands of people worldwide to follow their favourite blogs so you must get your blog on there! It’s easy and requires little to no upkeep – so really, why not sign up?
Using links in your blog citing previous posts will help push your readers to explore other parts of your blog. This will not only increase your pageviews but it’ll also build a more loyal readership as your readers get to know you & your blog.
Learning how to use keywords will optimize your blog’s traffic. It can feel very complicated at first to understand keywords but once you study up your blog will be running like a charm.
9. COMMENT +CONNECT:
By connecting to other bloggers and commenting on their posts you create relationships with other bloggers which in turn will increase your traffic. Take the time to read the other bloggers post
thoroughly and comment with a genuine & engaged response to create relationships with them.
