How To Increase Blog Traffic For Free:
Content Marketing Strategy:
I was thinking that what to write and how to write content so that it will go viral but I forgot that only one blog or article can’t make content viral. There is always a marketing strategy which works to drive huge volume of traffic on the website. So I decided to plan and create the content marketing strategy according to the niches and trending topics with the help of Google Trends and analysis.
Optimization of Articles:
I started analysis on various blogging websites and then I realized that there is something missing in my articles and then I prepared SEO checklist and then I started following it very carefully. I will post an article about that SEO checklist in future. I also took precautions for SEO mistakes.
Easy Content Writing:
I realized that if my article will contain too much heavy and technical words then people will not take interest in my blogs so I started my new blogs with very easy content writing terms so that every visitor of my blog website can easily understand it.
Social Media Sharing:
I checked so many blogs that people love to read and share the content which means something and then I modified my content according to the need of common visitors. Then I got few comments on my few blogs (few of them are spam, you should take care of this) and I started checking everything with the help of Google Webmaster and Google Analytics. And then I found that my one article is giving the great response from LinkedIn. So I started analysis and did LinkedIn promotion. For LinkedIn Marketing, I will write one dedicated blog soon.
Ranking Without Backlinks:
Maybe few readers will not digest this fact but few can easily understand that it’s not a big deal to get good rank without any backlink. It needs only well on page optimization with high attention on competitors.
This was the most effective terms which turn the curve of the website traffic from ground to sky and today I am getting approx 500 visitors regularly. Many bloggers just think that add a do-follow link from one post to another is internal linking but it is the biggest myth. You have to understand how internal linking works and how to do it properly.
Avoid Over Optimization:
Many bloggers including me think that if we can optimize our blog very well then it will give us amazing result and yes it works fine. But so many people started over optimization and Google count it as spam. So avoid over optimization on your blog.
