Looking for a few easy ways to improve your website traffic? Today I am sharing a few simple tips to help increase your blogs traffic!
How to Increase Your Blogs Traffic
Pinterest is my #1 source of traffic. Seriously, it is. I use Pinterest every single day now and honestly, it’s been a game-changer.
Try incorporating more DIY’s or “how to” posts. Write blog posts on sought-after information and create pinterest friendly pins 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 Your 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 Later, 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.
3. Create Engaging Content
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 great and engaging content that people want to read
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 blog’s traffic and long-term loyal followers.
5. Guest Post On Other Blogs and Have Guests on Your Blog
One way to grow your reach is by guest posting on other blogs within your niche. Not only is this a great way to reach a new audience, but it’s also great for your blog’s SEO.
In addition, you can invite other bloggers to post on your page. It benefits you because they’ll likely promote the post on their channels, and also it allows you to have new content without being the creator behind it. Plus, it helps their SEO so really it’s a win-win.
The main thing I should warn you about over guest posts though is do-links and allowing guest bloggers who have a hidden agenda to post on your blog. I receive a TON of spammy emails asking to guest post on my blog and the main reason is that they want to plug do-follow links into my page. You don’t want this. So, just be careful who you allow to post on your page.
6. Sign Your Blog Up to Bloglovin’
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?
7. Add Links Referring to Your Other Content Within Your Posts
Using links in your blog citing previous posts will help guide your readers to explore other parts of your blog. This will not only increase your page views but it’ll also build a more loyal readership as your readers get to know you & your blog.
In addition, adding links back with keywords in your posts also helps your SEO. So, it’s really worthwhile to plug a few into your posts.
8. Find Great Keywords for Your Blog Posts
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. Here are a few resources to help you get started:
9. Comment and Connect with Your Blogging Community
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.
