Top 7 Ways to Increase Blog Traffic in 30 Days

The value of a blog is determined via the kind of traffic it attracts on a daily basis.

For instance, if you are an advertiser and you have the option of advertising on either
Mashable.com or an unknown blog, which one would you choose?

You will choose Mashable.com because it is granted that the website gets thousands
of unique views daily.

The point is that if you have a blog, you need traffic to gain momentum and optimize
the traffic later on to make money online.

In this article we will focus on some ways to increase blog traffic in few days.

1. Social Media Promotion

Social media, by far, is one of the best and free methods to increase traffic.

If you already have accounts with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest,
StumbleUpon, you should start promoting blog posts on these social media sites.

If you use plugins like Twitter feed or interlink Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter with
your blog, they will be updated automatically when any new blog post is published.

Of course, for this method to work, you need to have a huge list of friends and
followers.

2. On-Page SEO

Yoast SEO and SEOpressor are two software tools that will heavily escalate your blog traffic in a matter of days.

If you are using WordPress, it is mandatory to have these plugins to enhance on-page SEO value.

On-page SEO is important because search engine bots index the blog and rank the
webpages.

Some factors involved in on-page SEO are adding H1, H2, H3 attributes, making links no-follow or do-follow, adding ‘alt’ tag to images, adding Meta description and focusing on one keyword.

3. Off-Page SEO

Off-page SEO comprise to those activities undertaken to add weightage to the main blog
to gain higher search engine ranking.

For instance, you could use classified ads to promote the blog.

There are numerous free online ads network where you can create ads and promote
anything.

In your case, if the blog sells any kind of products or services, advertise it.

Apart from this, you can use article directory submissions and forum postings to gain
significant traffic spikes.

4. Focus on Commenting

Commenting is an often under-utilized but a powerful way to gain blog traffic.

Bookmark a couple of blogs and comment on them as and when a new blog post
appears.

Regular comments on blogs will prompt webmasters to check out your blog and
thereby, increase traffic.

Follow this for 15-days and create another list of blogs to comment.

In this strategy, you are building back links and getting traffic at the same time.

Lastly, keep in mind not to spam the blogs. Write meaningful and engaging comments.

5. Guest Blogging Power

Despite the rumors that Google might devalue the authority of guest blogs, the trend
is still strong even if webmasters have become stricter with accepting guest blogs.

Nonetheless, do not ignore this method.

Guest blogs published on high authority blogs can easily give you an additional 350-400 visit for the next few days.

The trick is to keep working on guest blogs continuously.

Prepare a list of 100 blogs in your niche and with a higher Page Rank than your blog.

Three months is enough time for 100 guest blogs. Go for it.

6. Cover Recent Trends

Something or the other is always happening in any niche. Try to cover the trends.

It does not mean you have to convert the blog in a news site.

Covering recent trends get ranked by Google faster and thus, if you cover the same,
you will get good traffic spikes.

The best way to do this is to create Google Alerts so when anything newsworthy
happens, you will instantly get notification on your Gmail id.

Correspondingly, create a “News” category on the blog to file the trend-based posts.

7. Networking

Again, a very important but underutilized method is networking with other bloggers.

Think, you are a blogger and in the last 3 months, how many new networks have you
established with other bloggers? Not much, right?

Networking with bloggers in vertical and horizontal niches is extremely mandatory.
This builds loyalty, audience base and brand.

Prepare a plan based on the above seven tips. Note down the average traffic of the
previous month.

Follow your plan religiously for the next 30 days and calculate the average traffic,
again. You can see the difference yourself.

  5. There are indeed a lot of ways to increase blog traffic if you are patient and hard working enough. This should be best applied especially for newbies.

  6. I use networkedblogs application of facebook to auto publish the articles as soon as they got published plus email feeds.

    Commenting and offering guest post is the best way to get attracted by old and new bloggers.

  7. I agree with you Priyanka24 that blog commenting can be optimally used to gain more traffic. I do it regularly and the results are fantastic.
    Most of my visitors are coming from the sites or blogs in which I left comments on them.
    And the other ways are of course inevitably very effective. They all work and can generate massive traffic if we apply them seriously.

    • Priyanka says:

      Yup….I agree with you heru, that blog commenting is very good source if you want to drive traffic to your blog in few days. Even I approach many bloggers from their posts which they have linked while blog commenting.

  8. nice blog and post , this is surely an informative article that will help increase blog traffic to a blog

  9. Blog commenting and using Triberr has really increased my page views. One must really be patient with it all too. It doesn’t happen overnight. Social media is key too.

  10. Another way to both help your traffic and increase engagement on your site is to fix any broken links that are reported by Google Webmaster Tools and use a related posts plugin like LinkWithin or Outbrain.

  11. Yes, these are nice tips :) I think that networking is the most important

  12. Ankit Verma says:

  15. These all are unique & powerful way to Increase Blog traffic, I agree with No. 1 “Social Media Promotion” sharing status & URL on Social media is really beneficial like Facebook, I share my status & Blog URL on Facebook & I get traffic from Facebook.

    Great article posted!!!
    Its true that blog gets more traffic but something needs to be done to increase the traffic. Blog commenting helps to interact with the bloggers and share their views regarding the post. Use social media and share your post as there are millions of users available. As quality matters the most, bloggers must post quality contents and according to the latest trend as readers love to read them.

  17. very true Vinecent.. Google always says that content is king and users also love to read only quality content. Even I as a user many times prefer to read the content which is unique, catchy and informative. Social media has become one of the most important and major platform to interact with millions of users and share your ideas.

  18. thanks for this post, this will surely help in increasing a blog’s traffic i will use it on my blog for more traffic increase.
    thanks for sharing this informative post i enjoyed reading this post

  19. I always do the same things you post above, except number 1. How much the effect if we share our blog in social media such as facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc?

    Nice post, Priyanka.
    Thank you.

    • Priyanka says:

      Kimia, These days social media has become one of the most important and interesting methods of advertising your blog or website.

      There will be lots of effect as these social media sited like facebook, twitter, linked in etc are the only sites where you can interact with millions of users at a time. And once you have shared your blog or a post then you will get many readers if its interesting and catchy.

  20. These are all so good! I am really trying to focus on networking and social media. They are the easiest for me to do and a lot of fun. I love connecting with other people.

  21. I’m looking forward to getting my guest blogging stripes. Of all the ways to get traffic, I think that’s the best one.

    Commenting does attract visitors if done correctly. Lately, I’ve built a few solid connections with other bloggers by simply interacting with them and their audience in comments sections.

    Great article. Thanks for sharing!

  22. Hello Priyanka,
    I still do Social Media Promotion, I keep sharing my status & website/blog url or post on Social media but even I don’t see more traffic on my blog. Generally I have correct most of basic parts of On-Page & Off-Page but even don’t see success for traffic. have you any idea Priyanka, for why don’t I see good traffic on my blog.

  23. Hie Lauren

    I will suggest follow some other methods also along with social media. Put some eye catching titles and quality content along with beautiful images to your posts. Do blog commenting in some good blogs. Try to be interactive with users.

  24. This is a ridiculously weak post:
    1 Social media is a nice to promote, yet not the way explained above… automation tools for posting on FB and G+ will get you banned, labeled as spammer and the like
    2 Yoast SEO and seo pressor will not escalate nothing… they are just on page SEO plugins
    3 Did not see anything about off page SEO… Classified ads and forum posting have nothing to do with SEO -
    4 commenting is out of the question for traffic. It is for trying to build some authority. It will get you some visitors, however there are tons of more efficient ways of getting traffic.
    5 Guest blogging is cool – I agree here…
    6 and 7 are alright.
