How to Increase Traffic to Your Blog
Getting more traffic to our one of the main goals of every blogger. The more traffic you have, the more profitable and opportunities you could get.
While browsing at the stats of my blogs, I learned that my personal finance blog which I have been blogging since 2008 has an over-all page views of more than 165,000. Wanting to learn what types of articles have gotten the most visits, I learned that the month with the highest views was February.
So I went and viewed what types of articles should I be writing more about, I was surprised.
Of all months, February has the lowest number of articles published with only 3 articles. I’m not sure how could that be possible. Perhaps Blogger analytics was only messing up with me but there it is, February 2012. The month with the highest views: 11,000+.
I’ve always thought that if you want to get more traffic, updating your blog regularly is the way to go. It looks like in this case, it’s the contrary. I don’t claim to be an expert in generating traffic but I think it’s not always about the quantity but the quality.
There are certain blogging strategies that we need to implement so that we can be more successful and get more traffic.
One of which is to market your content to heavy content sharers or people who will do the promotion for you. These are content curators, heavy social media users and people who like your writing style and point of views. Don’t just write for yourself, write for your audience. Write articles that are valuable and share-able. Write pieces that people would like to link to.
