Happy new week all, i hope we all enjoyed the weekend very well. Thank God we all made it to experience this awesome new week. You all might have noticed that i have never accepted any guest post since the inception of this blog, not that i don’t like it anyway, but its just that I’ve not paid much attention to it.
Therefore, I’ve decided to be publishing some guest posts ones in a while. Today, my friend Daniel Adetunji whom I’ve known for sometime now has decided to share a very interesting post with us. Lets here what he has to say……
Have you ever wondered why it seems like you’re not getting traffic to your blog? Are you looking for ways to grow your blog traffic? When I first started out online as a blogger– I thought blogging was another ‘’get rich quick scheme’’ and I tried all I could to make money.
If you’re blogging to make some quick cash then, I’ll advise you quit blogging. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. Blogging is hard work– real hard work!
Now back to the main subject of this post, if you’re looking for ways to boost your blog traffic then the tips I’ll be sharing in this article will help you..
I launched my blog 4 months ago and I’m happy (for now) with the flow of traffic I get every day.
Without wasting much time, here are the tips:
Six evergreen tips to increase traffic to your blog
1. Tell a fairy tale story
People love stories. We all love to be entertained. The only way to engage a reader is by telling stories. I found out that my blog traffic increased dramatically since the day I started applying this tip. If you want your blog post to go viral and pull the search engine spiders, learn to write entertaining contents.
Make connections with your audience by making your personality shine through your content.
2. Keep your blog juicy and consistent
4 months ago when I first started my blog, I hardly post on my blog and as a result, my readers unsubscribed from my list. In fact, I lost over 30 subscribers in 2 weeks. Why? Because I was not consistent with my posting.
Consistently adding new blog articles will not only keep your readers engaged but will also make the search engine spiders visit your blog regularly.
If you neglect your blog, Google will neglect you and will reject your dinner invitation (Just kidding).
3. Be your audience Go-to- expert
If you need someone to handle your guest blogging project, would you hire a general freelance writer or an experienced guest blogger? I believe you’ll hire the second option, right?
Your audiences subscribed on your blog because they believe you have the experience and the wisdom to solve their challenges. They believed you’re endowed with the gift of information, and you must prove to them that you’re what they say you are.
How? By offering quality content and exceptional value
Pro tip: Let your audience trust you so much that they will refer their friends to you.
4. Guest post on other blogs
I’m a believer and a follower of guest blogging. I am who I am today because of guest blogging. Without guest blogging, I don’t think my business would be where it’s today.
If you’ve not been guest blogging, you’d better start because; it is the only way you can get that traffic you’ve always wanted.
Post relevant and unique contents on other blogs and earn their reward by receiving Holy Grail traffic to your blog. The reason why most bloggers don’t get results from guest blogging is because most of them see guest blogging as a form of link building. Though, guest blogging is a form of link building but it’s much more than that. Guest blogging is an art. It’s a way to connect with other top professionals in your field.
Hint: Put all your best when writing your guest posts and prepare your blog to receive the traffic.
5. Check on your competitors to know what is trending
Yeah. I love this…
Visit other top blogs in your niche to check out what’s trending.
Read their contents and rewrite their posts. Put a little bit of creativity in your content and ensure you make enough research to back up your facts.
Pro tip: Don’t copy and paste; be unique.
6. Revise your blog post before you hit ”publish”
How would you feel if you visit a blog and the contents are full of spelling and grammatical errors?
How would you convince a reader that you’re an expert if you can’t even spell correctly? Tell me.
Don’t rush when writing your blog contents. Spend time to read and revise your blog post before you publish.
There you have it!
