How to Fix Your Slow Growing Blog Traffic

Starting out is most frustrating.

You are unsure if what you are doing is working plus the fact that you have little to no visitors on your blog.

The following are things you can do to fix your slow growing blog traffic.

 

  1. Publish more

If you publishing once every two weeks, it’s not enough.

Start by posting 3 times a week.

Have one day to research and one day to write. Repeat this 3 times in a week.

Even if you are pressed for time, the least you should do is once a week.

But that single blog post better be stellar.

  1. Link internally

One of the common mistakes of beginner bloggers is not linking internally.

For example, you already have 10 posts on different topics of digital marketing.

If your next post is about content marketing, be sure to link to your previous post on email outreach or blogging.

 

  1. More detailed and longer

Every post you put out should be highly detailed and comprehensive.

With so much content being produced daily, people just want a one stop article that will explain to them what they need to know in an informative and fun way.

 

  1. Faster load pages

If you can afford a faster server package, opt for one.

Having quicker load times will reduce the bounce rate of visitors who don’t have the patience to wait.

 

  1. AMP framework

Ever clicked on a link and ended up on a page that was very barebones with no ads?

That’s what AMP is.

Plus the page loads up much faster.

The latest version of WordPress has this framework.

 

  1. Outreach to people to share competing articles

Promotion is without a doubt the most overlooked aspect of blogging.

A lot of bloggers presume that if they write a stellar article that they will get traffic naturally.

But with so much content being produced daily, the content that gets promoted the most wins.

When promoting, it’s important to know who your audience is.

It will be futile to pitch your article to people who have zero interest in the article you wrote.

Instead, use tools such as BuzzSumo to find out what are the most shared links and which Twitter users shared them.

With that information, you can email or tweet them about your content and ask if they would like to take a look.
