How to Increase Blog Traffic
Question: Have you ever felt stuck in a growth rut when it come to your blog traffic?
Wondering how to get your social media followers over to your blog? These 2 questions used to play over and over again in my mind! When I first started my blog in 2013, I knew nothing about having a successful blog traffic.
I used to think that you could just start a blog and readers would magically find you through social media or Google search results – easy right – but I quickly learned how off that was!
Granted, that statement is true, but SO MUCH more goes in to truly and consistently increasing blog traffic.
For the first 2 years, my blog strategy consisted almost daily content and then promotion of that content on my socials. I didn’t focus on establishing a niche since I was trying to create content consistently and just trying to build a following.
But writing posts multiple times a week actually made it really difficult to increase my blog traffic.
Once I started implementing the right strategies, my blog traffic grew 67.12% in just 4 months in monthly page views! Additionally, my newsletter subscription grew 80.74% in those same 4 months.
These results didn’t happen overnight. It does take a genuine effort, and targeted strategy to grow your blog traffic.
If you work smarter (instead of just harder), you too can achieve these results.
