Whether you`ve just started blogging or you`ve been at it for a while now; growing your blogs traffic can be tough to figure out. Where do you even begin? When we first started we were super overwhelmed; bombarded with conflicting information and only getting around 100 page views per month. Once we started implementing these simple strategies that number quickly grew to thousands. Keep reading for out top tips on how to increase blog traffic!

Pick a Specific Niche

Identifying your ideal audience is the first step in how to successfully increase blog traffic. There are literally thousands of bloggers out there so it`s important to define what sets you apart. What makes your readers come to you and love you over all of the other blogs they see? Take some time to write down unique things you could write about. The things that interest you and that you`re passionate about. The more specific; the better.

You want to pick an area and become an expert in that area. Don`t worry about trying to impress everyone or talk about a variety of things when you first start. If you have a generic blog you might not have anyone who is strongly uninterested.. but you wont have those extremely engaged followers either. Picking a specific niche is the first step to growing a list of organic, highly engaging followers.

Some examples could be: Keto recipes, travel throughout Europe, DIY home decor, yoga for people with tight hips, etc.

Write Valuable Content

This seems like a no brainer but really take some time to think about this one. What kind of value are your readers looking to get out of your posts? What questions are you answering and what problems are you helping them solve? By asking and answering these questions in every single blog post you write, you will be creating truly valuable content for your readers. In turn this will create an audience that comes back time and time again; increasing your blogs traffic.

Master Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of using keywords to increasing the traffic and visibility of your website for free! In order to master SEO you need to know what keywords your audience is searching for, write your posts and pages around those keywords and include them in multiple locations throughout your website. Although it sounds confusing and complicated at the beginning; it is actually quite easy to implement once you know how it works.

Utilize Pinterest

In the past Pinterest has been mistaken as a form of social media. In reality; it offers an amazing opportunity to get your blog posts in front of TONS of new readers specific to your niche. Pinterest is actually a search engine just like Google or Bing and it`s one of the most valuable search engines you have at your disposal.

This is because you are not necessarily competing with Trip Advisor, All Recipes or other huge websites like you would be on Google. With Pinterest you can use those same keywords in your descriptions to rank highly in multiple search results in your niche. Don`t overlook this one.. Pinterest is where we get over 80% of our traffic! Check out this awesome post by Melyssa Griffin for more information on how to use Pinterest to grow your blogs traffic.

  1. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was
    good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  2. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hope that helps:)

    this take a massive amount work? I’ve very little expertise in programming but I was hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new
    blog owners please share. I know this is off
    topic but I simply wanted to ask. Thank you!

      Blogs do take a lot of effort and work but it gets easier over time!
      Once you learn the tech side of it then its easier to focus more on your writing and your content.
      Hope that helps!

  4. Good site! I really love how it is easy on my eyes it is. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your feed which may do the trick? Have a nice day!
