Blogs are incredibly popular for promoting brands, sharing valuable information to help your audience and for simply getting your name out there as an expert within your field. Some companies rely solely on their blog for driving traffic to their store. Other people have also turned their blogs into primary sources of income. Not all blogs are efficient in serving their purpose. You have probably heard of top bloggers and would have also heard of bloggers who after years of blogging still have low traffic. How do successful bloggers build their audience? Let’s have a look.
People have no time to figure out how a complicated blog works. Ensure that the layout of your blog is easy to navigate. Readers are more attracted to a blog that they can use easily. You can carry out a test to determine what people do on your site. Most people want to know the information contained in a blog, the author and the date the blogs are published. Ensure that this information is visible to your audience. A blog that loads quickly is essential.
COMMENT ON OTHER BLOGS
Although most people send spam messages on the comment section, you should not give up on it. If you give genuine comments, other blog writers will be attracted to your blog. Do not invade all comment sections on many websites, do it sparingly. I have heard many bloggers suggest commenting only on blogs that offer similar content to yours. However, this is a personal preference which varies enormously for everyone. Commenting on other blogs gives you the opportunity to perhaps make new friends, network, collaborate and increase your blog's number of viewers. Increasing the number of views is important to keep Mr Google happy and improve your SEO.
Successful bloggers understand the importance of collaborations and crossovers. Do not be scared of competition. Working with others is an excellent way of widening your network and connecting with people from other fields. Look for credible websites and reach out to them. You can suggest a relevant topic and collaborate. Writing for free in the beginning is always a golden idea. You will soon start earning.
These are some of the top strategies that can apply to increase traffic to a blog. You do not have to spend thousands of dollars to promote your blog. One of the most critical aspects of a successful blog is SEO (search engine optimisation). Without exceptionally effective SEO tactics and a solid SEO strategy don't expect much return from your blog.
I hope these simple tips help you expand the audience of your blog, drive traffic to your website and boost sales. Have a beautiful day!
