How To Get Visitor Traffic With Your Blog

Posted by Francois Muscat On February - 7 - 2012

Is what you write on your blog and in Social Networks worthy of being read by millions? The bottom line in business blog marketing is that nothing builds a greater following of regular readers than adding new fresh, interesting and regular content. You need to take every opportunity to provide a good user experience.

Content Is King

Content is king, but so is conversation.  The only problem to starting a conversation is that good content is needed.  When you focus on writing good blog postings of real value instead of churning out disposable text, your readers will notice.  They will also refer others to your website or blog, meaning greater links and visibility. 

What kinds of blog topics work? What do prospects want to know about? Can you supply news or latest statistics? You can use frequently asked questions and emails as ideas for topics to write about. Also use press releases, case studies, testimonials and product reviews.

People are searching for specific information about a specific solution.  These are more likely to come up on search engine inquiries. What if you can give your visitors the answers to what they are looking for?

Visit Other Blogs

It is also important to become involved with the blogging community.  You must be an active participant to generate traffic.  Visit other forums and blogs to see what other people find interesting, and get in the conversation if you have something to contribute.  Spread the word about your blog and it will certainly attract readers.

Find blogs dealing with your subject and comment on their postings.  Commenting on other blogs will leave trackbacks and will encourage others to click thru to your site.  When you engage in dialogs, your visibility will increase, however make sure the main idea is not spammy and is keeping with the tone and flow of the conversation. 

Linking Is Important

Incoming links are important to search engine visibility.  You must give in order to receive.  Link to blogs and websites that support what you are saying.  Also find good statistics and trend information and link to them. 

Statistics

Often review the visitor traffic statistics of your blog and website to view what pages and posts are the most viewed by your visitor.  This can give you an indication of where your visitor comes from, what topics they find the most interesting, and you can cater to your audience better.  Write similar blog topics to the ones attracting the most visitors to boost visitor numbers. 

Wondering if your blog is adding to your digital marketing plan in the best way? Contact a WSI Internet Consultant today and get your strategy on the right track.
