It can be a little overwhelming to maneuver all the articles on the internet that talk about how to increase or boost traffic to your blog. You can google it and see the millions of search results, so where do you start? This is definitely a topic bloggers have on their minds!
Why is this such a huge topic? We all want to increase traffic to our blog posts. This means more eyes reading our work, and more chances of increasing our income from our blogs.
When you have a blog it is so important to create some sort of editorial calendars to keep your content. Plan out each month and theme, and stay on track. I find it so much easier to plan my content this way, it can be less overwhelming when you break it up. You break down topics for each week, and easily space your work across the month.
Be sure to post consistently on your blog. Search engines want fresh content, and high quality blog posts. You want your readers to stay on your page and keep coming back.
It is so important to make sure you are using specific keywords in your blog posts, Pinterest Pins, and website.
Be sure to utilize all your social media platforms to link back to your blog posts. When you post a blog share on your Instagram profile and stories, as well as your Facebook and Twitter accounts. You should also link your blog posts to your Pinterest to drive traffic.
You want to make sure you are utilizing hashtags on your Instagram posts, stories, and Pinterest pins. Make sure they are relevant to the topic of you post.
You want to make sure you respond to comments on your blog posts relatively quickly. Start a conversation with your readers and interact with them.
