Increase Blog Traffic In 5 Steps

No matter what topic you choose to create your blog, you can find fame if you do it right. Blogs are everywhere. It seems almost everyone who is Internet savvy has their own blog. It might be about their own lives, their experiences or for a product, service, information or opinion. Want-to-be authors write novels and short stories. Here are some simple tips you can use to help you write good blog posts that people will flock to read.

The first method is to have an active Facebook page that relates to your blog or website. Build up your fan page by commenting on other popular Facebook pages in your niche. Do not spam but actively engage in conversation. People will see your post and may check out your page, if they “like” your page you have them as an audience. Once you have a good sized fan base you can post links to new blog tips you put up and generate easy traffic.

This is especially useful for first time users, since they can start blogging right away. They can chose from a number of templates that blogging websites provide.

Read through all your blog comments again and see if there are any questions or comments that you could use to write a post to expand on these comments or answer any questions raised in a more comprehensive way. The fact that people have raised these issues in comments to your blog indicate that you visitors would like to know more about them. Have you read any information lately about new ideas on these topics? If so, write a blog post about them.

The advantage to the second method is that it is easier to target a niche group of people and drive traffic to your blog by frequenting their likely hangout (e.g. if your blog is on flower arranging, then you could hit the appropriate forums with a link to your blog in your signature). The downside to this method is that you will have to write good posts on the subject, so if you’re not familiar with it, then it will require research and perseverance.

Spell-checker is like that boyfriend/girlfriend you love to hate – but you need to just let go. Spell-checker doesn’t catch everything. You may not see that red line under the incorrect form of “there,” but it’s wrong.

Additionally, you do not have to be a computer geek to master the fine art of blogging. We live during a time where setting up your own blog can be as easy as baking a cake. You just follow a short recipe and your message can be broadcast to the masses in rapid fashion. Once your blogs are installed, you can maintain it with little effort.

Hopefully you consider going back to some of your previous posts and changing them up a bit to improve the quality of the posts. I know it is something I have definitely done myself and will continue doing in the future.
