How do I increase organic traffic on my Blogger blog?
Hi. Every blogger wants to have more and more traffic. If that traffic is organic and shares your posts with their friends all the time, it’s like a dream come true.
Organic traffic is quality traffic and brings in more qualified prospects and represents real, authentic, website-neutral popularity. The kind of popularity that lets you get back on your feet if something ever happens and you have to start your blog over on a new website, or helps you expand to other sites. It provides a competitive edge and helps a lot in the long run. Depending upon the niche of your blog, there can be several ways to get organic traffic, but I can still help while keeping it fairly universal.
Here are seven strategies that you can implement to get organic traffic to your blog:
#1 Perform SEO of your blog’s content regularly which includes off-page SEO, posts optimization, keyword optimization, etc. With this, you will be able to draw maximum traffic from search engines.
#2 Make the best possible use of social media websites to promote your blog. It is a proven strategy to drive organic traffic to a website.
#3 Do guest blogging. By having links with other bloggers in the same niche, you will be able to drive traffic from their blogs and vice versa.
#4 Commenting on blogs similar to your niche and sharing your blog’s link over there also works, if you keep it legitimate.
#5 You can create backlinks (both external and internal) to link posts with each other and also on other websites. Backlinking improves the ranking of a blogging website, which helps in getting your blog listed in search engine results pages.
#6 Improve the user experience by decreasing the load time, making your website fast, using headlines, good use of color, visualization, etc.
#7 If your budget allows, you can have paid advertisements to promote your blog.
In addition to the above strategies, you should also be clear on what type of traffic method your blog can use. That’s something where many people lack basic knowledge.
A traffic strategy will usually be one or two of the following three things: cheap/free, fast, and consistent. Getting all three types at once is not possible, so it’s important to choose which of those three is least important to you, and then compensate for that weakness with your traffic campaign.
I have discussed the general ways of getting traffic in my article: “Hunt Down The Three Little Pigs of Online Traffic“. I would recommend reading that before you proceed to implement the strategies to get organic traffic to your blog as it explains what to expect from each of the general strategies people use online.
In conclusion, by implementing the above strategies, you can generate organic traffic to your blog. Patience is the key to be successful as it takes time to build organic traffic. It can still happen quickly if that’s a priority for you, but there are very few ways to get a ton of organic traffic overnight. Everyone has their own goals and their own schedule to work on traffic strategies but, generally, with average efforts, regular posting of high-quality content, time dedication, and implementation of all the possible strategies, you can expect substantial side-hustle results somewhere between four to six months. That’s my observation based upon personal experience as well as for the blogs of my friends.
I’m being conservative here because you CAN make it go faster, but I don’t want to mislead people to think everyone gets a job-replacing income through online traffic after a month or two.
