They key to a successful blog is traffic, right? When you first start a blog getting that elusive traffic can seem nearly impossible and it is easy to get overwhelmed and quit your blogging journey before you have properly started.
What if we told you that it is possible, and that we achieved 0 to over 23,000 page views in our first two months?
And what if we told you that with some basic strategies you too can learn how to increase website traffic?
We aren’t promising that this will be easy because it will take work on your part. But we can promise that it is entirely possible for anyone that is willing to put in the work.
Here are our 5 must-do strategies to increase pageviews.
How to Increase Traffic From 0 to 23k Pageviews in Two Months
Get Your Website Right
Honestly, you can have the best content on the whole internet but if your blog is confusing to navigate, looks like a preschooler designed it or takes too long to load, people are not going to stick around to read it.
The average person makes up their mind about a website in less than 8 seconds. You have only that amount of time to make an impact before they go looking elsewhere.
Things to consider are:
- How easy it is to use your website and find content
- Is your website design appealing?
- How long does your website take to load?
Tips and hacks on how to increase page views
- Look at your website as though you were a new reader or even better ask someone else to head to your website and see how easily they can find certain content or navigate the site.
- Use a coaching plugin and compress images to increase site speed.
- Find a theme you love. We love and use Elegant Themes, as they’re beautiful, simple and so easy to personalize. Our theme is DIVI.
Create Content Readers Love
Obvious, right? But it’s harder than you think. It’s not going to work by just guessing what you think readers want to know. You need to research.
You also need to create quality content that informs and is relevant to your readers. This means writing in-depth and informative posts about subjects your readers love.
Tips and hacks to create content your readers love
- If you already have an audience try asking them what they want to see more of or what problems and questions they have.
- Use programs like Keysearch Pro to discover what people are searching for, then write about it.
- Learn how to use Google Analytics to see what your readers love about your site, then do more of it.
Improve your SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving your site, posts and pages so it has a better chance to get organic traffic from search engines.
I know, it sounds hard and seems confusing to begin with.
But if you want to rank anywhere on Google and have it drive traffic to your site you need to use SEO correctly throughout your site. This involves many parameters including in and off page SEO, but keyword research is something you must absolutely do for your posts.
We use Keysearch Pro to find our keywords and to find out what competitors are ranking for. Keysearch has a super easy interface, you just need to type your idea and ta-dah, it gives you all related keywords that you can use.
You then go and filter it as much as you like to find the best keywords (with higher search volume and low competition).
Keysearch also doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg like many other good keyword tools do. You can have different plans to suit your needs and pay less or more as you go, upgrade at any moment and the support is SUPER amazing!
Tips and hacks to do SEO the right way
- Use a great SEO plugin. We use Yoast but there are many to pick from so choose the one that suits you.
- Invest in a great keyword tool to help you find the perfect keywords. We use and love Keysearch Pro. We know you don’t want to spend money but this will pay for itself in no time. Besides it is the cheapest program we know of that gives us great results.
- Learn how to do SEO properly. We love the Billionaire Blog Club, but more about that later.
Get the Link Juice Going
Links are vital to traffic. You will want links from other sites directing them to your awesome posts and also internal links. It is so important to pop links into your posts directing readers to related content ON YOUR SITE. So many bloggers miss this step.
- Make friends with fellow bloggers in your niche and check out their content to see if you can make your readers experience better by linking to relevant information from their blog. And maybe they may do the same for you.
- Only link to information that is relevant to your post. Adding random internal links to your posts will do more harm than good.
- Use your sidebar to show off popular or related posts.
