“If you want to be famous and rich, you need more traffic and for that, you need to get more attention.”
Are you watching for some traffic generation strategies?
Well, first let people notice your blog and then, you can work on traffic building.
Once you start getting more attention from the readers, your fellow bloggers; you should obviously start getting more subscribers, loyal readers (or fans, in our terms) and so the traffic.
On this world-wide web, over six thousand blog posts are being published every minute. That’s definitely a lot.
But, how to be the one and stand out from the bunch?
That’s not so tough at all. Of course, it isn’t that easy too.
Before getting started, give a peep into some of the most popular blogs online; how do you think Copyblogger, Problogger, Seth’s Blog are getting such a vast amount of traffic and have successfully got tens of thousands of followers?
Because, they do things which we haven’t done yet.
Wait! We also have another advantage. Once you (your blog) become popular on the web, even sites like the Times or such will start following you and who knows if you get a link back from them?
So, how to get more attention to your blog (only quality visits)?
Be Generous to Your Readers
Be famous or not, you somehow get comments on your blog, don’t you? At least, from your co-bloggers.
I’ve seen too many blogs to mention, which never give a damn to the commentators. They get comment approval notifications and they simply approve them. Because, having a lot of comments on your blog posts is a sign of authority, isn’t it?
Well, not. Quality matters everywhere. If you browse through my blog, you can never find a single-lined comment. Because, I only give links to those who are genuine.
Let’s get back. When you get comments for your blog posts, don’t just ignore them. Spend some time in replying to all the comments. This creates a bond between you and the reader.
And, never ever forget to leave a comment back on the comment-author’s site. This will really help you. Trust me.
How do you think I got my guest article published on an authority blog?
So, always be genuine and generous with your comment-authors.
Unique about what? The design or the content?
Well, both of them matter. Yet, content, still is the king.
Have a unique writing style that attracts an audience. Because, after all, content is theend-product, a reader is looking for.
There are thousands of blog post on traffic generation strategies. Write something unique. You will obviously start getting more attention.
Moreover, the best possible way to kick start a blog is: publish at least ten killer posts on your blog, before launching it and do guest blogging. This will really boost your blog’s statistics.
Why am I always stepping out of the topic? *sigh*
Yes, start writing useful content. Not those boring stuff which, even readers got used to. Deliver something fresh, every time.
Write A Freemium Ebook
The best thing, this could be.
Write an awesome ebook which could help your readers and which, you can put it for sale and make money.
Make sure, it is too awesome to read.
Now, give it away for free, to your readers. This will definitely bring more attention to your blog.
There are many people who’re looking for some knowledge of things, so that they can also step into the field. This can be your chance to help them and win their loyal readership.
Tip: If you think your ebook is too much awesome and it should be put up for sale, offer it for free at least for the first week or so. Even this will not fail. You will of course get what you’ve been looking for. Yet, more quickly.
Currently, I am also working on my ebook- Just Write!, which will soon be available to download- FOR FREE!
Guest Post on Top Blogs
One can’t simply avoid guest blogging after having known how amazingly it works.
It brings you traffic, exposure to your blog, brings more exposure to YOU, optimizes your blog and what not!
Now, when you guest blog on a famous and popular blog of your niche, not only it increases your blog’s value, but gives you enough exposure in the blogosphere.
Earlier, when I’d published some really cool posts on my previous blog, what I got? Nothing.
Now, after getting my posts published on ProbloggingSuccess, FamousBloggers, ShoutMeLoud, BloggingTips and few other top-niche blogs, I am getting more attention to my blog. Each of my latest blog posts, is getting noticed. I love that.
So, focus on writing a guest post for a top-notch blog of your niche. You will be a star!
Interview A Famous Blogger
Seth’s recent interview is published on Copyblogger; Brian’s on SEObook.
When you get a chance to interview someone, do it immediately. This will help your readers in getting better knowledge, increases your following and traffic and you will definitely get some link-backs to your site.
Ask them questions (useful questions, I mean), experiences, take down their suggestions and advices, share it with your readers. That would be far better than a usual stereotype How-to post.
If you’re thinking, whom to interview; I’m free (Just kidding )
Pick The Best Use of Social Media
If I ask “are you on Facebook”, I know that would make no sense.
So, as you’re already active on Facebook, Twitter and all other time-wasting sites, use them for your site benefits too.
When you just got your guest post published on Problogger, where would you share? Of course, you can’t do it on your own blog. There comes the social media. There are a lot of people just like you out there. Engage with them and be active, all the time.
Just like me, if you love using Twitter more than Facebook, 80/20 rule will definitely work for you.
It is, if you tweet 20% about your site, be the remaining 80% about others. Share links to some interesting and useful articles mentioning the actual author. This will build a network and you will soon know how badly you might want to have that.
I’ve been writing for the past one-and-half, just to help you. If you really find this helpful, spend at least a couple of minutes, just to let me know.
