If you’re one of millions of bloggers all over the world, you’ve probably wondered on more than one occasion how you might increase traffic to your website. There are lots of articles with the same old tips out there but how many times can you read the same information, put it to use, then get an absence of results before you quit?
If you’re looking for hard evidence supporting a traffic building campaign, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how another blogger dramatically increased their traffic, as well as the steps you can follow to do the same for your own website.
If you put effective, valuable writing onto your website, more people are going to come to your website. That seems simple and it is, but it does require a certain amount of work. As long as you’re writing about topics your blog deals with, then you’re in good shape.
Try to write better than average things though; make sure your work looks great and doesn’t make readers question your intelligence. Don’t put up stupid stuff you haven’t thought through and never steal content from another blogger or website. You want your blog to be your own voice and it will never be that if you’re speaking another person’s words.
People will come to recognize your writing style and trust (or distrust) your articles over time if you make them uniquely your own rather than copying the work of another.
Posting on Reddit and Other Social Networks
This is an easy one, a step anyone can take to improve their website’s performance and get more visitors. If your post goes over well with the community, people will check it out and more importantly check you out. This might lead to them visiting your website for more information about that post or to see more of your writing about other topics.
The reason they come doesn’t matter; as long as they show up, all the visitors in the world should be welcome to your website. They tell their friends who tell their friends who tell their friends, you get the idea. LinkedIn is also a popular place but only if you’ve got a large number of business contacts.
If you really know how to do something from start to finish, telling other people how to efficiently perform a task is sure to get you more traffic. People crave knowledge. It’s probably why they came to your site in the first place and if you send them away more learned or with something they didn’t have before they visited, people remember that.
They’ll come back again in the future or bring more traffic from referrals they give to other people. Your tutorials must be explicit, specific and leave nothing open to the imagination if you expect people to get good use from them. Tell people exactly how to do something with the best possible results and your traffic will increase. From cooking to cleaning to carpentry, if you know something, tell the world about it.
