5 Things You Need To Know About How To Increase Blog Traffic

These are the five tips you need to know to increase blog traffic.

Here are the steps to success.
If you have a blog already or not, this is vital information. I believe everyone should have a blog because of RSS and the benefits of constant updating content on your site.

#1 -Setup the Blog
I recommend Wordpress and hosting it yourself. I use a whole bunch of plugins (I will post the top plugins soon) to make my life easier and simple free templates will do the trick with a little tweaking. If you don’t know how to set it up. Go to the Warrior Forum and get it done for you from one of the many web experts. Get a custom logo done or even a custom blog. You can even get the articles written for you at sites like elance.com!

#2 -Create Quality Content
Write quality content in your niche. Usually the error is made in not coming up with the goals of what you want to accomplish for your blog. Set yourself with reachable goals and be consistent with your blog.
You need to produce the right type of good content. Make content that your target audience will benefit from and want to come back for more. You need to give information, information, and more information!
Enhance the lives of your readers. After reading your blog, they should feel good and informed. Your goal is to make a very targeted niche and focus on getting an target audience that is looking for that specific topic. 

The blogger must create a blog where people want to keep coming back again and again where it was found by word of mouth or a search engine result.

Note: Have 10 Top Quality Articles in place before promotion

#3 – Promote your blog on small communication channels
Small Results (You need to do a lot of this)
  • Posting Comments on Blogs & Forums (10 / Day minimum)
  • Article Posting (Do research on the keyword of your title before hand)
  • Pinging (Pingoat.com – Sends out your RSS to the world)
  • Social Networking (Drive people to your best articles and build relationships)
  • Submitting to Directories / Search Engines (Do SEO for certain keywords; build your backlinks)
Notes: You want to focus on getting a good group of readers first before worrying about making big traffic. The key is to understand your reader. Know what they like and will buy. Get feedback from them if you don’t know your niche well enough yourself.

By this time, your blog will be looking nice, having some readers, and getting a modest amount of traffic. Now, it’s time to turn on the flood of traffic!

#4 – Get a flood of traffic to your site
  • Spend Money on Advertising (Be smart – Find areas where your targeted audience will be)
  • Get on TV or get your blog posted on a well known site
  • Find someone with a huge subscriber list to talk about your blog.
  • Podcasting Interviews – Have a top blogger do the interview and ask them questions. Not only will you learn and build a relationship with this top blogger, you will have a windfall of new traffic from that blogger when they talk about the interview on their site.
Notes: This will take time and patience. Don’t give up!  It’s much easier to build traffic once you have thousands of people subscribed to your blog. They will be posting your content all over the web and by word of mouth alone you will build a following of readers.

Eventually, your efforts will pay off and someone will give you big exposure.

#5 – Monetize!
  • Set up a free report or tool such as my 110 Free Traffic Tips Report.
  • Offer a great quality backend product after the reader takes advantage of your free report or tool.This is the best way to presell your customer which is extremely vital.
  • Post reviews of top quality products in your niche that you can endorsed for your readers to check out. Such as Twitter Snipe or Twitter Traffic Exposed – Both Tools I personally endorsed and have used.
  • Offer ad space and charge by the month.
  • Adsense and other ad sources.
  • Offer top products with recurring income to your readers Example – Aweber has a recurring commission for every referral.
