How to Increase Blog Traffic: The Complete Blog Traffic Guide
7 SEO methods to increase blog traffic fast and effectively

The tips I am going to share here is going to work for everyone and for every niche based website. Whether you are an internet marketer, webmaster or a simple blogger it really doesn’t matters. Just go ahead and grab my personal strategy.

7 Amazing Ways to Increase Blog Traffic

But be aware of the services and websites which guarantee you for 10k or even 50k readers’ supply within a week or month. And they actually do it, but then you will rarely ever see any kind of conversions. The reason is they are not humans; they are bots who just came to eat your bandwidth and memory. So stay away from them and always try to implement legit strategies which I am sharing below.

Quality of Your Content

So you have just written you next blog post and now you must have either scheduled it or you are just going to publish it. But wait and ask yourself, does it have the sufficient words, does it look unique, does it have required information and finally is it written for your readers.

Well these are the exact points or let’s say the questions which can impact your website either positively or negatively. So before you publish any more content make sure to ask these questions each and every time.

Today in this blogging and SEO era it’s really not important what you like, but it’s what your visitors want. So your first task must be to scan your analytic account to find out the top ranking pages with minimum bounce rate, since they are the exact posts which make your readers happy. Read that post, check out how you have written it and then simply start posting similar content on your website. If done properly you will surely see better conversion rate and user engagement.

Find Hot Topics

You must have observed that if you try to rank for the topics which are already published thousands of time requires lots of effort and time. But if you write an article on some latest event, trend or news then you will rank in the first page of SERP within few minutes. The reason is, there is no one to complete with you and you are alone. Now if that topic becomes really hot and popular, you will still be there on first page since you were the first one who published it and who shared the information.

This will in turn help you to boost your blog traffic for short or long interval of time with very small effort. What you just need is Google alert or topsy to find the latest buzz around the globe regarding your niche.

Forum Posting

There are hundreds of forums all around the web. You can register to them and can help their members get desired information. And in return you can get hundreds of free direct traffic. Few of them are warriorforum, v7n network, digitalpoint, webmasterworld. These websites don’t need any introduction. They are of the most active website with millions of marketers, software developers and webmasters. You can get answers to all your questions without paying any premium.

The best part is, you get do-follow links from them (OnlyWarrior). They are very reputable and have very active moderators so never try to fool them. You can register to them for free.
So what’s the best practice of doing this task?
  • Edit your profile and add unique image.
  • Edit your signature (Links unlocked after having 15 verified posts).
  • Try not to use direct and main keywords as your anchor text. I mean diversify your anchor text.
  • In order to add image as signature you have to upgrade.
  • Move to most active area on these forums : Example ” Main Internet Marketing Discussion Forum “
  • Read the posts and also the responses.
  • Then go and reply there with the best suitable answer.
  • Always try to be genuine and don’t spam there.
For the first few days don’t try to put any links in your reply. Once you have built good reputation, and then add relevant direct links to your blog. Always try to bring diversity in your anchor text. This will help you to defend your blog from Penguin updates.

This method can surely help you to increase blog traffic fast. Usually I am able to drive more than 150 to 240 visitors every day using this method.

Commenting To Its Potential

I just love commenting on someone’s hard work. The best part is, while researching me usually finds some of best relevant bloggers in my niche. I just subscribe them and then become their usual reader.

Commenting is one among the best method of building reputation in your field. I am usual commenter at, wplift, problogger, copyblogger, monyctl (used to), basicblogtips, and Hubpages (web 2.0) and mine.

It’s another way to bring more than 100 to 150 readers every day. All of the above suggested blogs are full of readers every time. You can get response within minutes. Take part in conversation and you will be in benefit.

Remember them: Never ever try to add the link in the comment area. Its will get rejected most probably. Don’t use your keywords as your name. You can use your blog name if it looks very natural.

Guest Posting

Today guest blogging is regarded as one of the most vital marketing strategy to build authority backlinks to your pages and domain. It also helps you to connect with other bloggers, webmasters and help you to build better community. But personally I like it and also don’t like. See my reasons below.

Why I don’t like it.
  • I am losing one potential topic.
  • I am not making any money.
  • I am getting not sustainable traffic.
  • Readers are not targeted.
Why I love this strategy.
  • I get good number of subscribers.
  • I build authority links from them.
  • I build the relationship with other webmaster.
I will also suggest writing articles at hubpages. With both of these web2.0 sites you can actually make money, get referrals, and also quality backlinks. You can also rank any article on search engines without performing any SEO, very easily since their domain authority is really very high.

Many people also ask, how to increase blog readership. For me personally the simplest answer is guest blogging. It doesn’t only provide good readers, Pageviews, helps to increase conversion, but also provide us with dofollow backlinks.

Push Frequent Updates

It’s always necessary to respond quickly to the need of your readers. Don’t test their patience. Remember that they won’t lose anything, but you are the only one to lose everything. Every successful blogger and webmaster knows when and what to publish. You should always publish contents in which you are expert, and your readers have interest.

Always to focus on one topic per article. Try to engage your visitors and let them explore the information. Always share updated and targeted knowledge.

Simple Steps to Be Successful:
  • Make a time-table. OR
  • Limit your frequency to certain posts in one week or month. ( Example : 5 articles in one week )
  • Always interlink your posts to improve Pageviews and to reduce your bounce rate.
  • Add videos and images for better explanation.
Remember that these tips won’t affect your traffic directly, but they can help you build better and happier community. Like this your direct hits will increase.

Use Social Media to Increase Blog Traffic

Don’t just focus on SEO (search engine optimization). Google’s Anti-Spam head Matt Cutts have already said, Google takes social signals as one of the important factor in ranking any webpage on SERPs.

Few of the important Social Sites:
  • Twitter
  • Google Plus
  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Reddit
  • Jumptags
You can get better engagements when you register to some socially active membership community sites like bloggers, Networked-blogs, Blog-catalog. Today Google give reals time social results. You can easily see Digg, Reddit, Pinterest, twitter replies or links in the search results. All these show the importance of social bookmarking and sharing.

In-order to use them to their full potential you have to craft a community on your own. Try to follow and in return ask them follow you. Move to sites like mashable and share your thoughts. Get involved in linked-in with groups. Vote and comment on others blog in blog-catalogue and other sites.

This process won’t give you instant results but they will give you best results after two to three weeks. But you can still try StumbleUpon to see some real heavy visitors. But according to many different marketers and bloggers, the traffic is not so converting and useful.

So these were 7 different methods which you can use to increase blog traffic effectively. They work best for me, but my maximum visitors are refereed from search engines. Let’s see if in the future I am able to equalize this rate.
