5 WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR BLOG TRAFFIC

Welcome to the blog guys. Today I’m going to be sharing with you 5 ways to increase your blog traffic, the site is now a year old and I choose not to call myself a newbie blogger anymore, because I’ve learnt a lot about blogging (still learning everyday though) and today I’ve decided to share these tips that helped me improve my blog traffic. Any serious blogger will strive to get traffic and engagement on their site because it just shows how well they are doing in the blogosphere and also one of the keys to getting potential advertisers, partnerships, sponsors and so on. This topic sounds so clichรฉ and a lot of bloggers have talked about it but you can never get enough knowledge on this, why? Because the blogosphere is divided into different Niches and even Sub Niches, what works for a style blogger may not necessarily work for a beauty blogger so we need to keep expanding on this topic.
I got this sweater dress from Dresslily, its sweater weather already *sighs* not looking forward to the cold. I got the dress in this color because I don’t really have any outfit in the color green. The dress arrived on time and it’s beautiful, you can tell from the pictures, the dress is true to size and flattering on the body, however I would have loved it if it was a little thicker than it is. Like what I’m wearing? The links to what I’m wearing are down below; click them to make a purchase.

 5     WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR BLOG TRAFFIC
1.    CONSISTENCY
I can’t stress on this enough, but one of the important ways to drive more traffic to your blog is to stay consistent. You can’t post once in two weeks or once in a month and be dissatisfied with your slow traffic. Your audience feel this is what you’ve dedicated your time to so they expect consistency because you don’t expect them to keep coming back to the same article every time, they will eventually stop checking at some point and forget your blog existence. I’m not saying it’s mandatory to post every day in a week, it’s too much pressure coming from a blogger, but if you can they why not and be sure to stay consistent. If you can’t, then at least make sure there is a post twice in a week on the site. Google gives higher priority to websites with fresh content, so if you want to get more attention on search engines, update your blog at least twice a week.
 2.    TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Thank God for the way social media have evolved, Twitter has 271 million users every month, Facebook has almost 1 billion active users, LinkedIn has over 300 million active users, not to talk of Instagram, Snapchat, Google plus, Blog Loving and so many. Leveraging these networks requires patience, study them and know where you’d drive more traffic from based on your blog niche which is very important. I wouldn’t advice using all the social media, no it’s just too much, find 4 or 5 and be active there. Also, there are a lot of groups on Facebook, Google plus and so on where bloggers like you and I can join and share content and blog posts for other bloggers to view and network there as well. For Instagram, use a lot of known and popular hash tags, to be honest that’s how I get more likes on there from different accounts, it’s so effective. If you don’t have your own Facebook Page for your blog I’d employ you to do so, it’s another effective way of driving more traffic to your blog. Don’t forget, if you consistently employ a strategy of participation in groups you follow and also promote your blog post across social media networks, your blog traffic, engagement and even fans and followers will increase tremendously.
 3.    WRITE ATTRACTIVE TITLE
When I started I used to just write ‘White dress’ ‘Two Piece Floral Outfit’ yah it was blah…Titles like that will have you wondering ‘what did I do wrong’  It happens at the beginning or middle of blogging, let’s face it, we’ve all gone through it, or still go through it.  To drive traffic to your blog write really attractive title to make people curious as to what the post will be about. In other words write a title that people would want to click on, I can’t give any tips on that, that’s one of the problems we face as bloggers, title names! We just have to make research based on our niche and figure out what our audience might be interested in. Your blog titles are as important as the content itself, no matter how great the pictures are, blog titles are the icing on the cake.
 4.    INVEST IN YOUR BLOG
To be honest I feel we don’t stress on this enough, for people to take us seriously and professional we need to invest in our blog. The power of beautiful, usable, professional design can't be overstated. When readers look at a blog the first thing they notice/judge is how it "feels". An attractive blog theme, simple and easy to navigate will make your audience coming back, because it just speaks quality and experience. One day I was checking out a few blogs and I stumbled on this particular blog, she had great content and pictures but I was lost, didn’t know how to navigate, older post was the first to see before the newer post. Everything was just everywhere, it was so difficult and I left the site immediately because I was confused. Not just youngsters view our blog, older people do as well and we need to have a simple and clean template so it can be easy to navigate. If you want to take blogging far and/or to the next level, invest in a good template. Advertisers and sponsors notice that and if your blog is just confusing and disorganized that might be a red flag. Let’s make sure we include social sharing buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and the other major social networks, that way it’s easier for readers to spread the word. It should also be easier to comment on post, the comment section should be friendly and easy to use.
Blog domain, let’s imagine you are introducing yourself and blog to a potential advertiser, does your blog name sounds catchy and something they can remember, something that we can just simply type and check out at any point in time? If we have a simple and easy blog name our audience can simply check out our blog for new blog post or just to check a random post to show to their friends or family and that’s how the news will spread. People now know your blog name without referring back to your Instagram, or Facebook page. That drives traffic to your blog
 5.    PROMOTION
Last, but definitely not the least. I know Facebook and Instagram now give the opportunity for us to create paid promotions on their platform reaching thousands of people. If you definitely want to reach more people out there invest in promotions on whatever platform you feel comfortable with. To my knowledge it can cost $10-$15 dollars to reach thousands of people, if your blog is worth it I’d say go for it, there’s no loss there. I’m positive you'd drive more traffic to your blog. Take advantage of social media.
Thanks for reading if you have any other way to drive traffic to your blog, please share them in the comment section, and let’s take note. 
Talk to you in my next post, be you, be safe, be kind, stay blessed and remain humble.
