Hello and welcome back, In today’s post, we are going to look at the actions I have taken to Triple My Blog Traffic In 30 Days. Yes, I Said Triple.
Using the steps below. As bloggers, we are all looking for the all-important traffic that we need to keep our blogs sustainable.
Many people say if we want lots of traffic we have to increase the amount we write every week. Are you writing a post every day? can you imagine trying to write more?
I struggle sometimes to write blogs every other day so even I can’t do it every day. That would just be too much pressure!
You can set a goal for however many days say 14 and write for those days but it’s not sustainable and will cause serious burnout and possibly make you never want to blog again.
This post contains affiliate links, if you click through and make a purchase I may receive a small commission. The price you pay will not be affected. This helps to keep me in coffee when I’m writing for you.
With this in mind let’s look at other ways to increase our blog traffic:
Why You Need More Traffic?
The number of posts on your blog can affect your traffic if you are using search engines only and in the first few months, your traffic can be only 2-3 visitors a day as a blogger who wants to do blogging as a full-time job we need the traffic to our sites.
The main reasons for traffic:
- Sponsored Posts, if we want to be eligible for sponsored posts we need a certain amount of traffic to be accepted and to be able to set our own fees.
- Guest Posting, top bloggers are willing to help us out with guest posting but only to a certain extent, we need to show our work is up to standard and the main way is traffic visiting the blog posts.
- To Earn Money, As bloggers we all tend to have affiliate links on our sites, and the more people that are seeing the posts the more chance there is of making a sale it’s a numbers game after all.
This is a very competitive niche and to be ahead of other bloggers who have been doing this for longer I needed to take some different steps to get to the top of the search engines.
Now I’m going to share with you how this was accomplished and if you follow the steps it will help you as much as it has helped this blog to grow.
After reading a ton of other blogs and watching equally as many YouTube videos about Pinterest and the pinning practices I decided to take a bit from each piece of advice that was shared.
Group Boards: half and a half here, some say they are still good for new pinners some say they aren’t. I did join as many group boards as I could.
After looking through analytics I could see which boards were performing well for me and which boards weren’t doing me any favours.
I removed myself from the group boards that were not performing well and then my blog traffic started to increase. Pinning the content to a board that contains only my own pins.
The first new pin from a new blog post goes straight to that board!!
Manual Pinning: 99% of pinners recommend you to do some manual pinning and that’s something I have stuck to since day one. Over the course of a month, I have increased the amount on a weekly basis.
- The first week 5-10 pins posted per day
- In the second week 10-15 pins per day
- the third week 15-20 pins per day
and so on, now it’s up to 20 pins a day, these belong to other accounts as well as my own pins. That is a very important fact to always remember to keep Pinterest happy.
Scheduled Pinning: You either love to use automation or you hate it. How many hours in a day do you have to sit manually pinning on Pinterest?
You can’t get very much traffic if you are only pinning once a day. The pins need to be shown when your audience is online and for me, that’s when I’m sleeping as I live in Europe and the most responsive audience is in the USA.
Using Tailwind: you can set it up to pin any time of the day or night when your traffic is about. You have probably read posts that rave about how much traffic has been gained from using this tool and I have to tell you it’s all true!
Like you, I was sceptical to start off with but through a blog post I got a month’s free trial so I thought there is nothing to lose and possibly everything to gain.
With the Tailwind scheduler, I started to pin just 5 pins a day 3 of mine and 2 of other peoples. At this time 30 days later I’m now doing 11 pins a day 6 of mine and 5 for others.
Gaining traffic was the result, it’s simple to use and set up. Make sure to take advantage of the free Tribes that you get access to they are like group boards on steroids!
The other members of the tribe share your pins with their followers and that gets them seen by so many more people.
For every pin I have put into a tribe it has been shared by 5-8 other members which is a far better ratio than group boards that are starting to be less effective.
Traffic From Facebook
I have to confess I’m not a huge fan of Facebook and it’s a place I don’t visit very often. However, when I do put the time into visiting blogging groups that I’m a member of I do 9 times out of 10 ends up with traffic to my blog this usually comes in the form of answering questions from new bloggers and sharing a post with the answer in.
The content helps the blogger to answer their questions and they will leave you a comment saying something to that effect and not only that a few have joined my email list.
I know lots of affiliate marketers with blogs that only use Facebook as their source of free traffic that are very big in the blogging sphere that get thousands of views a day.
Maybe in the future, I will learn to like it a bit more as it is a very good place to get tons of traffic without paying for expensive ads!
Blog Traffic From SEO
When you search for a word using a search engine it is search engine optimization that finds the answer to the search query.
There are so many bloggers out there that would have had a lot more success if they had only taken the time to learn SEO from the beginning of their blogs live.
You read so many posts where the author states they wish they had learned it because the traffic will have grown that much quicker.
Once you get traction from the search engines you will get masses of traffic from Google, Bing, Yahoo, and from social media sources.
I learned SEO from the beginning and it has paid off big style. My #1 recommendation for learning everything to do with blogs and SEO.
Blog Traffic From SEO Keyworded Titles
Using a keyword research tool will pretty much guarantee that you reach a high position in the search results for your blog titles as well as your content.
You can use the Google search console to find out which posts are not doing so well and if they are not ranking all that high.
You will tell from the number of impressions compared to how many clicks through to read the post.
You will know that you have written very valuable content that helps your readers so the next step will be to change the title so it’s exciting instead of boring.
I did this with 2 posts and the click-through rate went up within a week.
This trick I learned through my previous blog. Every time there was a season, valentines day, Easter, Halloween just to name a few I would put out a post 4-6 weeks prior to the event and the traffic to those posts was phenomenal, I’m keeping up the practise with this blog.
I Will know the results soon as it’s only a week till Valentine’s day so far so good for the traffic on that blog post.
