If you are going to make your blog successful then you need blog traffic. I am assuming at this point that you are already creating high quality content for your blog…right?
All you need now is for people to see it, read it and like it.
Getting your blog in front of people is the ultimate key to your blogging success. Without traffic you will never make your blog successful.
So how do you do it?… How do you get Blog Traffic?
There are many ways to build your traffic, but the main, long term success strategy for blog traffic is to make sure that all of your posts are written correctly, structured correctly and linked using a proven structure.
Firstly, you need to apply SEO to each and every post that you write.
The easiest way to do that is to use WordPress SEO by Yoast to manage the SEO quality of each blog post that you write.
This WordPress Plugin will easily let you see what you need to add to your posts in order to make them SEO friendly, including making certain that your main keyword is in your;
- Post URL
- Page Title
- H2 Heading tags
- H3 Heading Tags
- The first Paragraph of your post
- The Alt Text of images
- between 1% and 4% Keyword Density
By doing this, the search engines will be able to see what the main theme of your post is, and will rank you accordingly.
Once all your posts are SEO friendly (you can go back through old posts and make them SEO friendly once you have added Yoast) you need to promote them by getting links to them from a variety of sources.
- Guest Blog Posts
- Social Networks
- Social Bookmarks
If you concentrate on these first then you will build a spread of links that will each give your posts a little push up the search engines rankings.
As you add additional blog content, and build links to each of your posts, your blog will rank higher and you will gain blog traffic.
