There are a number of ways to increase the number of online readers that troop in to check out your blog. It is imperative that you try out some of these methods to check out what works for you. Of course, there is the traditional way of actively promoting your blog on social media networks and search engines. Active SEO will definitely result in visitors to your blog. However, in this post we are considering blogs maintained by the writers themselves.
Obviously, these blog writers don’t have the ammunition or team to conduct extensive SEO for their blogs. Does it mean that they will always shy away from having a steady stream of online readers? No! Here are some methods that you can try out to get more visitors to your blog.
First, you should not expect other bloggers or online readers to share your blog content actively unless you do the same. No one online will talk about your blog or your work if you remain aloof and passive on social media discussions and forums. A great way to build up interest about your blog is to show genuine concern and participation about other blogs in your domain of interest. Leave insightful comments on those blogs and contribute to discussions that make sense. This will encourage others to visit your blog and return the favor.
Second, this tip has something to do with writing the blog itself. When you are drafting a blog, make sure you are being informative and not just readable. You cannot gloss over generalized ideas and concepts if you want readers to take your blog seriously. You need to mention sources and link them to authentic websites from where you have pooled the data. This will not just convince your online readers that you mean business but also ensure that these big players (your sources) know about online presence. That does affect a lot!
Third, do not write more blog posts. Rather, when you write, make a swell job of it! The tip of writing blogs every night and pasting them online or writing regularly does not work anymore in the days of Panda and Hummingbird. Instead, take your time and draft a post that will create ripples. Then take your time and work on the next post. This will get you more brownie points from your readers than managing a voluminous but essentially idea-empty blog.
