How to Get Daily Massive Blog Traffic

Guest Post by Ann Liu

It is the fact that almost all the inter­net users go online are look­ing for infor­ma­tion, not nec­es­sar­ily go and buy things. If they want to buy some­thing, before they make up their mind, they will use search engines to search the info first. To get traf­fic to your site, and make your blog be seen by them, fol­low­ing these tips can help you achieve it.

If you have been in the inter­net mar­ket­ing for any period of time you would have heard this say­ing day in and day out — Con­tent is the king. Every inter­net mar­ket­ing man­ual has this as it’s mantra and rightly so. Bad poorly writ­ten con­tent is the death bell for all blogs that want to be taken seri­ously. Thus, you need to write arti­cles and blog­ging them to make your web­site full of orig­i­nal, rel­e­vant and use­ful con­tent, which related to your prod­ucts or ser­vices.

If you want your blog to be around for a while and you want read­ers to come in 5 years time and still find your con­tent rel­e­vant to them, write time­less con­tent is essen­tial, whether they read it in 3 months, 3 years or 30 years. Some top­ics how­ever, will always be time­less, find those, write on them.

In addi­tion, the other best way to get a sud­den burst of traf­fic is to write about some­thing that is hot right now or in the news. This is a great way to get a sud­den burst of really inter­ested traf­fic — watch­ing the news, or use online ser­vices like Google Trends, Yahoo Buzz or Ebay Pulse etc can help you do that.

When you write arti­cles for your blog, keep in mind of this — your main focus should be on writ­ing for humans, not for bots. Don’t try and repeat your key­words all over your blog posts to the point where it does not make sense.

Key­words stuff­ing might work some­times for search engine rank your site and you may get some extra traf­fic by doing it, but they won’t stay for long if the con­tent is obvi­ously geared for the pur­pose of search engine rank­ing. Peo­ple have a short atten­tion span and won’t waste their time read­ing the junk.

Besides that, there is noth­ing worse than read­ing a blog with no per­son­al­ity. Peo­ple like to read posts that are con­ver­sa­tion­al­ist in nature. They like to read writ­ings that are writ­ten at the 7th grade level. And they don’t want to read large words and hard to read sentences.

Peo­ple also like it when you talk to them one on one like an old friend, talk to your reader as if only one per­son were read­ing your blog. Hav­ing a unique per­son­al­ity will get you more traf­fic from peo­ple telling peo­ple (word of mouth) about your blog then any “traf­fic build­ing” technique.

To keep search engines, ping sites, and peo­ple inter­ested to con­tinue com­ing back to your site, you have to blog reg­u­larly. In the other words, if you don’t do it, they will lose inter­est and will not come to your website.

What I would sug­gest is that, at the very least, you should post once a week, two to three times would be bet­ter, but make sure that you don’t post every day all day. If you do that, it will make your site to search engines like a spam blog. Also make sure that you split your post times up, some weeks post on Mon­days, Thurs­days and Sun­days, other weeks post on the other days.

Finally, the design of your site also impor­tant, appeal­ing to the viewer and easy to read is essen­tial. Don’t use too bright colour, lots of graph­ics, tons of links or any­thing like that. Just keep it sim­ple, make it easy to access, and check your entire site to make sure that all the links on your blog are work­ing fine.

  1. While you are learning all about the aspects of blog marketing, you are going to find that comments on a blog are also a very important aspect of blog marketing. You will want to be sure that you always answer and acknowledge the comments that are made to your blog as well as others. When you show that you are an actual person that can hold a conversation, you are showing others that you are real and that you really and truly have the best intentions for your blog. Make sure that no comment goes unanswered. When you do this and do it consistently, it will show your readers that you will acknowledge them and answer their questions. That will in return make them come back to see what your answer was if they asked a question.

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
