You can’t succeed with your blog if you can’t drive good traffic to it. However, if you are a new blogger, how can you suppose to drive traffic to your blog, especially if you’re so clueless about blogging in the first place? The answer is simple. Here are 5 biggest traffic tips you can follow, if you’re a new and clueless blogger:
1. Write pillar articles
Pillar articles are articles that you write as your main blog content. For example, if you have a blog about acne treatment, your pillar articles can be in the form of 10-part tutorial articles on how to understand more about acne and get rid of it once and for all. These articles will become the basic of your blog.
2. Write premium post at least once a week
Of course, you have to give something good for your readers all the time. It means that your blog post must be valuable enough for your readers to read it. However, it is also important for you to give them something special once in a while. This is where premium post is needed for your blog.
Premium post is a special post where you give your readers more detailed and in-depth information about the topic. It can be a tutorial, guide or even regular list articles (the only difference is that it is more detailed). You should at least write premium post and publish it to your blog once a week.
3. Connect with other blogs
Connect with other blogs early so that you can build good reputation on the search engine as soon as your blog is established. Yes, it is easier to postpone writing guest post to other blogs until you have at least 100 posts in your blog. But, it is not necessary. Publish 10 good posts to your blog and start guest posting right away. This is important to build good traffic and readership in your blog.
4. Participate on forums
How much forums can influence your blog traffic? The answer is “a lot”. If you are a reputable member of an established forum, you can easily drive traffic to your blog just by putting your blog in your forum signature. That’s why it is important to participate on many forums in the same niche as your blog.
Perhaps, if you are a newbie blogger, you will think that branding isn’t important, or you can’t build a good brand for your new blog. But, think about this.
Branding is a long-term investment for your blog. Yes, you can’t build brand for your blog in just 1-2 weeks. You need to nurture and develop your blog for years until your blog brand is recognized.
What I suggest to you is to start building your brand from the start in order to avoid regret later. Remember, this is a long-term investment for your blog.
Traffic is something that most new bloggers are struggling about. However, if you’re a new and clueless blogger, you should be able to start driving quality traffic to your blog if you follow the tips above.
