How to Get More Traffic to Your Blog


Traffic Is the Lifeblood of Your Blog Some bloggers spend more time on producing good content than they do on promoting that content. This might make sense to you but the reality of it is you should be spending a lot more time promoting your awesome content and working on ways to get more people to see it.



Methods to Get More Traffic to Your Blog By now hopefully, you understand that you canít even worry about traffic until you focus on your content and you donít need a ton of traffic to make good money with your blog.
But that doesnít mean you still shouldnít aim to get as much traffic as possible.
What youíll learn next are the tactics I use to drive 100s of thousands of people to my network of blogs. None of these tactics are sleazy or stuff you would be ashamed of doing.
In fact, they arenít secrets at all but they are things that a lot of bloggers fail to do.
Writing, publishing, and hoping for the best isnít going to do you much good.
 1. Participate in the Places Where Your Audience Gathers This is an easy one. You donít want to waste time promoting your content to people that donít care about it so the logical thing is to find the people that do care about your topic.
Almost every niche/topic has online communities somewhere. There are blogs, forums, Facebook Groups, sub-Reddits, and other places.
Your goal is to find these places and then make yourself a valuable member of the community.
The mistake a lot of bloggers make is that they join these communities and they just start sharing their content. This can work if your content is the best of the best but nobody wants to know the person that only shows up when they have something to share.
Itís like the friend that only hits you up when you have money.
You might think that you donít have time to participate in any online communities but youíll be amazed by the additional benefits that you reap:
 
  • Gain a better understanding of your audienceís problems. If you really want to make money online then you need to understand the problems that your audience face. This will help you provide needed solutions that people are willing to pay for and talk about.
  • Build stronger relationships with other bloggers. As youíll see in a bit building relationships with influencers is one of the best ways to grow traffic to your blog. You never know where they are lurking so by simply making yourself a valuable member of a community youíre giving yourself a shot of building future relationships.
2. Get the Most out of Google by Using SEO This is a huge missed opportunity by a lot of bloggers simply because they donít understand what is required to do well in Google and other search engines.
Some people will tell you to only focus on great content and Google will take care of the rest. That can definitely happen sometimes by why leave anything to chance?
If you want to do well with search engines you need to understand (SEO).
The basics of it are pretty simple:
 
  • Optimize around a keyword
  • Get backlinks to your site
See? That isnít too bad.
The problem is that many bloggers donít do either of these things. They donít try to target their posts around a specific keyword and they donít bother trying to get backlinks from other sites.
What you end up with is a trickle of traffic from Google when you could be looking at a mountain of traffic that is coming through every single month.
  boosting blog seo traffic  I wrote a a comprehensive review of Tailwind and BoardBooster which are two popular Pinterest scheduling tools. Whatís great about ranking for this keyword is that people searching for it are in the buying phase of the customer lifecycle.
That means if they like my review and are convinced to try either one they have a good chance of clicking on one of my affiliate links and purchasing a subscription.
To learn more about SEO check out this post on WordPress SEO.
 3. Get the Most out of Pinterest This is the secret weapon for a lot of bloggers.
I didnít understand how powerful Pinterest could be for a blog until I started to do a research for a blog that my wife wanted to start. What I found was bloggers doing over 100,000 pageviews a month just from Pinterest alone.
And they were doing it every single month!
I had to get in on the action and I havenít looked back since.
Remember the Google Analytics chart I showed you before from my health and fitness site? If you donít remember Iíll share it again:
  how to drive more traffic to your website  Most of that traffic came from Pinterest and now Pinterest is the #1 traffic referrer for the site. Over time we want to make sure itís balanced between Pinterest and Google, but if you want to get a good start on traffic then make sure you donít ignore Pinterest.
Another example is from a blog I launched on November 26th. Here is a snapshot of the analytics from the site for its first 20 days:
  get traffic with Pinterest  Over 77,000 pageviews in its first 20 days. In fact, it picked up steam and did over 400,000 pageviews in its first 60 days.
Why wait months to get traffic when Pinterest gives you a chance to get right away?
If you browse around you can find plenty of Pinterest tips on the web. I believe so strongly in Pinterest that Iíve created a course solely dedicated to using Pinterest to get traffic to your blog.
 4. Get the Most out of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram I combined these social networks because they all follow the same principles. They also have the misfortune of not being completely reliable for driving traffic to your site.
Facebook and Twitter can work well for you if youíre in the business of creating viral content like videos of kids falling off their skateboards.
However, just because they arenít dependable doesnít mean that you shouldnít try to get the most out of them.
Some bloggers have perched their whole business on top of these networks to great success.
Itís always nice to build up an audience on any platform as this gives you an opportunity to spread the love that your blog is offering around to more people.
 Using Facebook to Drive Traffic to Your Blog Many bloggers focus on building up their Facebook Pages because they believe that is the key to driving traffic to your blog. The problem with this is that Facebook is making it more difficult every year to reach every fan of your Page. You could have 100,000 Fans but only 1,000 of them get to see your post.
If you want more people to see it then you need to pay Facebook to make it happen.
Itís pretty messed up but that is how they work. From a business perspective it makes sense for Facebook but what is the point in working hard on your Facebook Page if organic reach is going to continue to drop?
What bloggers should focus on is building up Facebook Groups that allow you to always have a connection with their audience. Caitlin Bacher does a great job of outlining how hosting a Facebook Group benefits your business.
Melyssa Griffin runs a successful Facebook Group with over 40,000 members! That means when she posts something it is sure to reach thousands of people.
clip Why Some Blogs Get More Traffic Than Others
December 14, 2018, 05:56:31 PM by Isaac Adeniran
Why Some Blogs Get More Traffic Than Others


It starts with the idea of recommendations.
When you tell your friends about a movie or song, you tell them because you like it. You donít want to give them a bad recommendation because it looks bad on you.

Thatís how bloggers treat sharing links. I donít share content with my audience that isnít going to be worth their time.
 Great Content Brings Great Links That means if you want to get a link from me you have to write some really good content.
When people say that ďContent is KingĒ this is what they mean. To be an authority in your niche you have to prove that you provide value to people and you canít do that if you are sending t
hem to sites that donít help them out.

Great content, that is promoted wisely, gets shared.
That means every single blog post you write should be a powerful one If you are just going to write a couple paragraphs of some non-sense then you canít expect magic to happen.

 Great Content Is Easier to Promote When you have great content on your site it becomes a lot easier to promote it. There are some bloggers that will promote any piece of content they write because that is how they function but I always like to take a step back and see if it wasnít my content would I be just as happy promoting it.
If the answer is ďnoĒ then it is back to the drawing board.

When you email another blogger in your niche to tell them about your awesome new blog post you want to make sure that when they read it they are compelled to share it with their audience. I am not talking about some time later today or down the road, I am talking about right now.

Once great content is promoted by the right person it starts to spread quickly on its own.
 Great Content Is Helpful I run ahealth and fitness blog with my brother and for the longest time it wasnít receiving much traffic.
In fact, for the first 90 days, it had only received 1,000 pageviews. We thought we were writing great pieces of content and looking back at things they were great pieces of contentÖfor us.
They werenít helpful to our audience whatsoever.
Great content helps your audience solve a problem.
Great content is actionable.
The stuff we were writing wasnít actionable at all.
It was more opinion driven and full of wit that nobody cared about.
Take a look at this chart:
 

  The Orange line represents traffic that arrived at the site in October 2016. The blog received a grand total of 9,456 pageviews. Not bad, but nowhere close to great.
The Blue line represents traffic that arrived at the blog in November 2016. That month, the blog reached over 129,000 pageviews!
Thatís a 1,271% increase in traffic.
And that isnít a fluke month where a post goes viral. The site now regularly receives 300,000 pageviews a month and itís all because we changed the type of content we were writing.
 Great Content Lasts Evergreen Content is content that lasts and only requires the occassional update.
This guide would be considered Evergreen Content.
How to get Beyonce tickets this March is not evergreen content. It only pertains to a certain time period. When you have Evergreen Content that means no matter when people show up they will find it valuable.
How frustrating is it to find the blog post that supposedly has all of the answers you need and it is out of date?
As you grow your blog, more and more people will find you through search engines. These people are looking for specific answers to their problems and you want to make sure your content helps them out.
 Write Like You Love It This might be the most important one of all.
People come to your blog to learn but they also want to be entertained. There are bloggers that are starting off creating niche websites and writing robotic reviews of products theyíve never used.
You can skate by like this or you can build an empire just by showing a little bit of personality in your writing.
Whenever you read pat flynn it never seems like he is writing on autopilot. His writing is engaging and make you feel like you are part of a conversation with him.

Donít mistake this advice for following your passion.
It has nothing to do with that at all. I run a couple of blogs where I am not passionate about the subject but that doesnít mean that I canít make my writing entertaining and something that people want to read.
There are a lot of steps to creating a successful blog and some people take these too far by running it like a machine. In the long run, you are building a brand and that brand is built around your personality.
Show it to the world.

 Great Content Is the Foundation to Getting Great Traffic If you have a crappy foundation then you donít have much to build on.
There are millions upon millions of blogs out there and yet only 25% of them get over 5,000 pageviews a month.
Think about that.
Only 25% of the blogs in the world get over 100 people a day to visit them. Getting a 100 people to come to your blog every single day shouldnít be hard but it is nearly impossible if you donít have a strong foundation of content so before you worry about traffic you need to worry about content.

xx 10 Tips for Promoting Your Forum

10 Tips for Promoting Your Forum
Posted by Skitzzo as Forums
Popsí list of 10 things heís learned running a forum was received very well and seemed to resonate with a lot of our readers. We had several questions and comments on forum promotion so in the spirit of giving the people what they want, a blog post was born. Now, before I go on, Iíd like to say that our forum is relatively young (about 15 months old) and weíre definitely not claiming to be the biggest or most successful forum around. Along the same lines, weíre not perfect either. Weíve not done as well as we should have on many of these points. However, that being said, I still think weíve learned a few things along the way, and if nothing else, you asked for it, right? So here they areÖ 10 Tips for Promoting Your Forum.
1.   Be Unique - The internet is crowded with forums and communities on all sorts of topics. Youíve got to do something to distance yourself from the pack. Whether thatís accomplished through your design, your rules, or offering a certain feature that other forums donít, you need to be memorable. Think about it, how many forums have you signed up for over the years? If you canít remember, youíve just perfectly illustrated my point.
2.   Discuss Hot Topics - No matter what your forum is about, there will always be hot topics to talk about - hot button issues that automatically generate conversation and debate. Industry news, technological developments, and current events are all great topics. Starting new threads or discussions about these ďhot topicsĒ can create instant conversation and can often be a shot in the arm for your somewhat stale forum.
3.   Create a Blog - Thatís right, I said blog. Sure blogs and forums are two separate things, but how many of you have clicked over to check out our forums? A great blog post will often attract attention to content that your forum might have otherwise concealed. Blogs are more accessible, less threatening, and require a much lower level of commitment from the average reader. Done right, a blog can be a more gentle way to ease new people into a community. Also, blogs are more ďlinkableĒ which allows you to gain even more exposure within your target industry or niche, as well as helping your site rank better in the search engines. This of course will in turn lead to more visitors and hopefully more members. You can also use a blog to reward particularly great posts in your forum. If, for example, you have a member that regularly contributes great threads or topics to your forum, invite them to write an article for your blog. That provides you with more blog content and is just one more way to show your members that you value them. Which reminds meÖ
4.   Show your appreciation - This one is really quite simple. Your members need to know you care. About them, about their needs and desires, and most of all, about the forum. As pops mentioned, if your members know that you are invested in making the forum a success, theyíre a lot more likely to contribute their time and content. So how do you show your appreciation? Tell them. Send your members emails or private messages thanking them for their contributions, offer some type of reward for your most active members, listen to their requests or concerns about the site, anything that can help you form a bond with your members.
5.   Be active - No one likes absentee landlords, fathers, or forum administrators. A forum is going to take up a lot of your time. If you donít have time to run it, make sure you find someone that does. The forum administrator needs to be active and visible in the community. People need to feel they have a way to address any problems they might have or any disagreements that spring up between members. When activity slows down, and there will be slow periods, itís the administratorís job to stir up discussion and activity (this would be a good time for some of those hot topics from point #2).
6.   Invite Experts - In any field there are well known experts. If youíve started a forum on the subject, chances are you know who the top dog(s) is/are. Chances are there is already a discussion about one of their products or theories going on in your forum. If not, start one. Then contact the expert and invite them to join in the discussion. Chances are theyíll jump at the chance. Theyíll get some free advertising and perhaps a chance to promote their product, and youíll have the benefit of bringing more experts into your community. The more experts you have stopping in from time to time, the more well known your forum will become. And really, isnít that why youíre reading this post?
7.   Send out Reminders - As we discussed earlier, people often join a forum, participate for a few hours or days, get busy and then forget about their new-found forum. Even if your site is unique and memorable, some people will manage to forget it. Luckily for you, most forums require an email address to sign up. Using this list to send out weekly newsletters with site news, interesting threads, or your newest promotions will serve as a subtle reminder to anyone who hasnít visited your site for a while.
8.   Welcome new members - Have you ever asked why Walmart employs a person whose sole job is to greet customers? Ever wondered why churches have those overly friendly people posted at the front door? Itís because people like to be welcomed. And, if itís good enough for Walmart, itís good enough for your forum. Be sure to welcome your new members and, if possible, give them a place to introduce themselves to your regular members. A welcome also serves as a great time to make sure your new members read your forum rules; further easing their transition into your community.
9.   Participate in the Industry - I can hear you already. Didnít you already tell us to be active? Well, yes I did. This time though, Iím talking about the industry as a whole. People often say ďItís not what you know, itís WHO you know.Ē In most industries there are conferences or trade shows where hundreds or thousands of people gather and the best part is, theyíre almost all your target audience. Of course these events will vary depending on your niche or industry but Iím willing to bet thereís a gathering of some sort. If your forum is about model trains, go to the train exhibits. If your community is art based, attend art shows and exhibit openings. Basically, attend as many of these events as possible, rub elbows with as many people as possible and, of course, during the conversation let them know about your forum.
10.   Allow Off Topic Discussion - Even workaholics donít talk shop 24/7. Your forum members are no different. Creating a space for your members to blow off steam, tell jokes, and talk about their other interests will allow them to create friendships and unwind. Think of this as a team building exercise. The more your members interact with each other, the more likely theyíll be to visit on a regular basis. Theyíll also be more willing to help spread the word about your forum or help improve the community. If nothing else, youíll gain a few friends in the process. Now who doesnít want more friends?
As I said before, our forum is far from perfect, and in fact, you may find that one or two of these tips donít apply to your forum or arenít easily implemented. But, Iím also willing to bet thereís at least one or two that youíre not currently using. Give it a shot and see which work best for you.

xx The 8 Social Media Sites You Need to Know About
June 30, 2012, 11:42:51 AM by Ade Omo Ade
The 8 Social Media Sites You Need to Know About

Here are the top 8   social media sites you need to  know about:

 
  • >
  • Facebook: The world's biggest social networking site. Members go to find other people who share the same interests or activities. You can build your own online profile and share different types of information with each other, such as pictures, videos, blog entries, links to other sites, and music clips.
     
     A good marketing strategy is to create a Facebook "Fan Page" for your business and encourage your customers to join. Then you can easily alert them whenever you have updates to share about your business.
  • Twitter: A "micro-blogging" social network site. Members send each other short text-based posts of up to 140 characters. When you find members whose "tweets" you like, you can subscribe to their feed and be updated whenever they send a new message.
  • YouTube: The 'Net's number one  video-sharing site. Members share and comment on each other's videos. You can post  a link on your profile page can direct other people to your site. Also, the videos you share can help establish your reputation as an expert in your industry. For example, you could share a "how-to" video that shows your market how to solve a common problem.
     
     If you're not the next Stephen Spielberg, don't worry -- your videos don't have to be super professional. In many cases, a video shot with a regular digital camera will work just fine.
  • LinkedIn: The most popular business-oriented social networking site on the Web. As of May 2009, it had more than 400,000 registered users. It's a great place to find potential business partners as well as people who may be interested in your products or services.
  • Digg: One of the 'Net's most popular news-sharing websites. Members post links to their favorite news articles and then comment and vote on the ones they like best. If you get a good rating on an article that includes a link to your site, you could see  a huge rush of traffic overnight.
  • Stumbleupon: Wikipedia calls this social networking site a "personalized recommendation engine." Members can explore and rate Web pages, photos, and videos. When they hit the "Stumble!" button on the site's toolbar, the  results displayed are ranked based on your previous ratings as well as the ratings of friends and of members  with similar interests.
     
     If Stumbleupon members give your site or blog a good ranking, your site will be showed in their results more often, which could lead to a surge of traffic to your site.
  • Yelp: A popular review site where members write reviews about local businesses. If you own a local business, this one's for you!
  • Delicious: A popular bookmarking site. Members save links to their favorite websites or articles -- just like the bookmarks in your browser -- and share those links with other people. Members can comment on each other's links. Every comment you write links to your personal profile where you can include a link to your site. The more comments you make, the more people you encourage to visit your profile page -- and the more traffic you'll end up directing  to your site.
By participating on sites like these   you can meet your future customers and learn how to give them what they're looking for. In exchange, they will be happy to spread the word about your site all over the Internet!

Do you have a question or comment on any of them? Then leave comment below

Why Forums May Be the Most Powerful Social Media Channel for Brands

Here are eight do's and doníts for marketers from Sanjay Sabnani, CEO of CrowdGather, a leading network of community forums.

1. Do register. Look for a "Welcome" or Introductions" sub-forum to introduce yourself. Be honest and ask how advertising and sponsorship works on the site.
2. Donít post marketing messages right away. You could be banned, and your product or service could be maligned on a site that ranks high on search engines.
3. Do contact the site admin. Send a private message to the siteís owner or head admin, explaining your product and ask about becoming a paid sponsor.
4. Donít pretend. Portraying yourself as a regular member when your only interest is commercial in nature is likely land you hot water sooner or later.
5. Do consider advertising. You might want to look into promoting your product through a combination of banner advertising and sponsored posts. Many forums have "sticky" threads that they sell to sponsors. These discussion posts are ďstuckĒ atop the forum index to gain maximum visibility.
6. Donít push it. Incessantly bringing up your product or service when itís not related to the topic at hand could get you banned. Make sure your message is on topic and engaging. Forums are a hybrid of communication, entertainment, and education. Tailor your message accordingly.
7. Do contribute. Become a valued contributor to the site. Use your account to talk to other members, reply to questions, or to ask your own questions. This way you become a known entity and marketing opportunities become available to you.
8. Donít ignore criticism. Immediately respond to complaints and criticism. Donít make it personal. Attack the arguments not the person.
Remember: Internet forums and message board posts are archived and searchable, making this the promotion that keeps on giving. Take advantage of that.

xx Advantages Of Business Forums for local business
May 23, 2012, 11:54:52 AM by Isaac Adeniran
Advantages Of Business Forums

We create FREE forums for business and individual .  There are several compelling reasons for creating a forum or a discussion board for your business.
First of all, if you're just starting out online it's a great way to entice people to interact with your content so they stay longer on your business forum  page. After all, our main objective when driving traffic to our site is to keep people there long enough to examine our product offers and become paying customers.
Forums allow your prospects to communicate with one another thereby creating the opportunity for them to establish relationships. This is a tremendous way to generate return visitors to your website which will increase your chances of converting your guests to clients because the more often people visit your forum page the more likely they are to buy something and become a customer.
One of the secrets to creating a popular forum from the start is to promote its establishment prior to the launch date. You can announce it on other people's blogs and forums, you can tweet the day and time via your Twitter account and you can post it on your Facebook wall just to name a few advertising techniques.
You can also get the ball rolling yourself by posting a few threads about controversial topics of the day which may encourage some of your visitors to join the discussion. This way you're more likely to have a well populated and active chat room instead of a desolate and silent space which can be embarrassing to you as the webmaster.
After you've fashioned your discussion room you shouldn't forget about it. In order to keep people interested you have to find new ways to engage them in this activity so they'll keep coming back to add their input.
There are several ways you can encourage their participation such as asking your subscribers to use the chat area to make suggestions about your  business and your products. You can persuade them to use it as a comment box by leaving both negative and positive feedback about your business.
Another advantage of having  forum is you can use it to promote new products you may be introducing and encourage members to check them out. You can also add a customer survey to this space at regular intervals to question your members on different areas of your venture that may be a concern for you as the owner.
So as you can see there are many advantages to having a  forum  for your visitors and your customers to voice their opinions and their concerns as well as socialize and establish relationships with other forum members. This engagement by your subscribers can only help reinforce customer loyalty and assist you with maintaining an active and happy email list of prospects and current clients for many years to come.
