Top 5 Tips to Increase Organic Blog Traffic
by Arvind Kumar
Every day there are hundreds of blogs created. But, very few of them survive after a few months. Most of the blogs are now used for making money. It is not easy to make money online. Only blogs which are able to generate huge traffic are able to make awesome money. But, today increasing blog traffic has become a very difficult task.
Blog traffic is directly proportional to blog performance in search engines. If you are having good organic traffic, then you will see an improvement in your blog growth. Once your blog post comes on the first page of a search engine, then you can see the increase in your blog ranking. Traffic, ranking, and performance all three are interconnected. If you just increase your blog traffic, the other two will also increase automatically.
Every year with the changing algorithm of search engines, it is difficult to rank blogs higher. But, you see there are many new blogs which are able to get good traffic by just following simple techniques. Yes, you can also get a good amount of readers or visitors if you honestly take care of your blog. There are just 5 tips you have to follow to grow your blog.
Tip 1 -Write Consistently on Your Blog
Search engines like blogs which are updated regularly. You have to consistently add articles to your blog to give more knowledge to your readers. This is the best way to increase your blog ranking in search engines. You need to be very passionate about your topic for blogging; this will only help you to write quality articles. The more you know about your topic, the more interestingly you can write about it.
For new blogs, bloggers should have to publish one or two articles every day. Initially, the readers and visitors will be less, but as they visit your blog daily and sees new quality content, they will again come back to your blog. This is the best way to retain the old readers. The more you will write, the more you will connect with your readers.
Once you have written more than 10 articles, interlink them to engage your readers. If you see a website like Wikipedia, you can see that every line has a hyperlink to another post. This way, readers get more information about the topic.
Tip 2 -Follow On Page and Off Page SEO
On page SEO can be easily followed by using a Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress blogs. This plugin will help in using keywords in your blog title, Meta description, H1, H2, H3 tags etc. The targeted keywords should not be used too few or too much. Do not Spam your article with keywords. While writing articles, try to give all the information you can about the topic. Write long articles of around more than 1000 words, because search engines love long articles which cover all the specific information.
Off page SEO can be done by commenting on blogs or writing a guest post. This technique helps in connecting with other bloggers of the same niche. Off page SEO helps in generating backlinks. Getting a Dofollow and Nofollow backlink helps in increasing your blog ranking in search engines. Always try to follow high ranking blogs in your niche and keep commenting on their blogs. If you want to increase your presence in search engines, you will need to work on Off page SEO techniques.
Tip 3 -Keyword Research
Before writing an article, always do keyword research. On the internet, there are a lot of keywords which already have tons of posts. For example, if you search “weight loss” on Google, you will get tons of search results. This shows that the “weight loss” topic is already in a very competitive market and it is not easy to rank high for this keyword. Hence, do proper keyword research and use a low competitive keyword, which can be easily ranked in search engines.
Google Keyword Planner, is a free keyword tool which can help you to find low competitive keywords. I would suggest targeting long tail keywords, which are easily ranked in search engines. SEMrush and Long Tail Pro are also the best keywords tool available in the market. If you use the paid version of these tools, you can get a lot of awesome features.
Tip 4 -Promotion of Blog Post
After writing a blog post, it is very important that it is reached to your targeted readers. Now, this can be easily done by joining social networking sites. Social media is very helpful for promotion of anything. Even movies are being promoted on social media like Twitter and Facebook. So, once you publish a blog post, then start sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, Instagram etc.
You can easily get your targeted readers in Facebook groups. You just need to join those groups and share the relevant blog content. If you get likes, then you are on a good track. The same in Google plus. There are communities for each topic; you can share your blog content in relevant communities. This way, you have to just promote your blog content by joining social networking sites.
Tip 5 -Focus on Quality, Not on Money
Many bloggers start focusing on making money once they get an AdSense account. You cannot make money until you have a good blog with quality content. Hence, the quality of your blog post is the only thing which will help you make a good income. It takes time for a blog to grow, so keep publishing original content on your blog. Many bloggers, after few months, start sharing copied content on their blog. This happens, because they lose patience and cannot give too much time for their blog.
Patience is the key to success. Do not quit in between. If you feel demotivated, read some inspiring post for motivation. If you remove negative thoughts from your mind, you will always achieve success in future.
These techniques are very unique and are followed by most of the successful bloggers. It’s all about how honest you are. If you are writing from your heart, then it will surely reach your readers. Do not focus more on quantity, quality content is the key factor in blogging. If you understand your readers, then you can easily gain their trust. These are the best ways to increase your blog performance and traffic in search engines.
