Loyal Blog Traffic

5 Awesome Ways To Drive Loyal Traffic To Your Blog

The Blogosphere is getting bigger and the competition is getting tighter. Every blogger aims for mostly two things. Traffic and Popularity. But not just bulk traffic, you need loyal and converting readers.

#1; Write Killer Blog Posts

You might be wondering, how on earth could we gain traffic by publishing a powerful article. But actually you can. Killer blog posts are those which get shared or force your readers to share.

Try to win the heart of your reader and the content will be automatically promoted. Include some humor, personal experience and ask questions of them. You won’t regret it. Mark my words! ;)

#2; Don’t forget your Social Surroundings

Social Networks like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are being used by millions at a time so why not make use of some percent of them? Don’t forget to have a Fan page for your blog, your personal Twitter account and Google Communities and publisher page.

#3; Build up a Strong Online Presence

This is one of the best strategies every professional blogger who touched the fame line uses. Wait a sec, can I ask you something? If you see me all over the internet, on discussions, as writer, featured, you will probably try to dive into my online profiles. Right?

So try to be everywhere.

  • Guest Post on reputable blogs and post more often. I don’t  have a one to one plan on writing. If I publish an article on my blog, the next article will be a Guest Post on somewhere else. Like I am doing here on FamousBloggers.  It works! ;)
  • Commenting on other blogs is also a great idea to draw some attention. Reply with valuable information or satisfying messages as comments on other blogs. Be regular and be the first one to comment, you can gain about 40% of bouncing visitors to your blog. Trust me :)
  • Being active on forums will not only help you with back linking and SEO, but will also help you to build a powerful online presence.

#4; Give them a chance to share

What if you have awesome content which your readers want to share but there is no way he can? That’s what I call an epic fail. Make sure you have got sharing facilities on your blog.

Implement floating social buttons or sharing buttons at the bottom of the post. You don’t want to miss a chance of getting shared. Right?

#5; Optimize your Content for Search Engines

Before proceeding, let me tell you one thing. You always gotta keep your readers first on the list and put the door of organic traffic after that. It’s humans who will be reading your blog posts, not just some bots. So make sure you are writing for your readers. Balance the optimization ration  65% : 35% as writing quality : SEO.

Half an hour of keyword research will be worth it before starting to write a blog post.

Let me ask you something. Consider you need to download songs which have good quality from the movie Titanic. What would you search for?

  1. Titanic Songs.
    OR
  2. Download High Quality Songs from Titanic.

Probably the second one. Right? Now that’s a long tail keyword. It’s something people usually search for. When you are writing a new post, think from the view of a user who is in need of relevant content and come up with some effective long tails. Include them in your content and try to avoid repetition of the same long tailing phrases.

 Over to You!

Howdy Blogger. I hope you felt it was worth reading what I have written. Hey! Where do you think you are going? Wait a sec and tell me your opinion about the post and don’t forget to share if you have got some extra traffic building strategies.

    Traffic is the thing that cannot be resisted at any moment in a bloggers life. Grabbing more traffic is like a dream come true and for sure also the revenue increase.
    Nice tips, i really appreciate!

  • Gautam August 5, 2013, 2:33 am

    Everyone gets Traffic from Search engines but building a Social presence can help you very much.You can acheive all by just writing a killer post and sharing And after that all depends on your online presence.

  • Tom Jamieson August 1, 2013, 11:03 am

    While all of what you have written is true, who is your audience for this post? If it is new bloggers, I think they need more than just a few headlines. You need to flesh out these points and give some practical tips on *how* to do this instead of just *what* to do. If you audience is experienced bloggers, how have you added value and insight into what they are already doing? I don’t think you have accomplished much with this post. Just my two cents.

  • Vishal Verma July 31, 2013, 1:15 pm

    I follow Every Step Given above.. including Website speed and Interactive theme…

  • Silviu July 10, 2013, 4:53 am

    Hi Amal,

    1. “Write killer blog posts”. These are just words. It’s a kind of ideal. Let’s see: when you are a beginner can you write “killer” blog posts? It is not so easy to do it even when you are advanced. You should have said: “Write the best posts you can”.

    2. Build up a strong online presence with guest posting, commenting and forums. Yes. This is a very good general advice.

    3. Optimize your content for search engines. Another general advice everybody knows. On the other hand, if you tried your hand at this, you know how difficult is to find a real, valuable keyword.

    Conclusion: You didn’t brought anything new on the table. I know it is hard to come with something really new. Nobody expect this from a guest post. What we expect though is a new perspective something that belongs to you and only you. We expected a personal touch, a true sign of your real personality.
    Unfortunately these things are missing. The only thing you did is you provided general, almost evergreen advice that most people know. This is not quality but just a post written for a link.

    I have been trying to form good links in different ways but nothing worked out for me. I know you are an Expert in SEO. I have one question on what are the disadvantages I will face if I enable dofollow comments on my blog?

    • Amal Rafeeq July 10, 2013, 3:08 am

      Hi Mallesh,
      First of all, there is nothing much problem with Dofollow links. But you do have to take care of low quality pages. A good way to enable dofollow commenting by keeping it straight is to moderate comments wisely and only approve comments from high authority people on the niche. Or you can use CommentLuv to giveaway dofollow links to those who share your content.

      You must be giving priority to the links that are coming to you at the same time. Hope it helps!

      Thanks a lot for diving in and commenting. See you around :)

    hi there amal. your post is worth sharing since they are all absolutely correct. but you may also add interacting with other bloggers within the same niche or at least related niche. for instance, i am a make money online blogger but i create good relationships with those bloggers who share blogging tips, SEO, Wordpress and freelance writng bloggers …joining comment exchange groups is one way of interacting with other bloggers like we usually do :)

  • Nirmala July 2, 2013, 6:08 am

    Nice post Amal Bro :)

    Yeah, am sure these ways would drive loyal traffic to a website.
