Creating a blog is not a big deal if compared to its promotion. The most important thing that a blogger should do is promotion. Without promotion, there will be no visits to your site that will make your efforts useless. Online promotion or SEO is one of the great way to drive traffic to a website. I am not going to get into detail discussion about SEO. Previously I have written a detailed content about SEO. Click the links below;

Coming back to the point, Promotion of a website includes the following;

  • Content
  • Social media
  • Participation in forums
  • Optimization of Blog
  • Link Building
  • Guest Posting
  • Public Announcement
  • Submission of sites to social discussion
  • Videos

 

Apart from these, there are some paid ways to get traffic to a blog. These are listed as follows;

  • Buy Ad space
  • Google Adword

 

I believe in discussing all the points listed above so that the readers visiting my website can gain the maximum knowledge.

 

Blog content

Attractive content is followed by a visitor.

Content

By content I mean a unique, plagiarism-free and a complimentary content. A content should be complete, knowledgeable so that the readers revisit your site thinking that they will receive the best from your website.

Unique content is essential as Google do not pick the content copied other website. “Cheating is no doubt a bad habit”.

Attributes of good content includes the following;

  • Knowledgeable
  • Useful
  • Unique
  • Attractive

The length of an article also matters. It is commonly known the more descriptive an article is, the better it is and easier to understand.

social media

Social media networks

Social Media

Socializing is considered as a useful thing nowadays. It helps one in staying connected with friends and family. There are many social media networks where one can follow some new people. These networks basically helps the publishers/web masters to connect with new audience. Most common social media networks are as follows;

-Facebook

-Twitter

-LinkedIn

-Google+

Participation in Forums

Forums are a great way of getting an opinion. Discussion on forums are very useful. It helps in getting people in touch with a publisher that increases the visits to a website. I will not describe about any forum right here but I will give an example.

One is suggested to spend around 20 days each day to get benefit from it.

 

Optimization of Blog

When a blog is created, many people just don’t optimize it to Google search engine which is a big mistake a publisher has made. Optimizing to search engine is essential.

I called it a mistake because a publisher may lose free traffic from the search engine.

For the purpose of optimization, a plugin known as “Yoast plugin” needs to be installed.

 

I will discuss about Yoast plugin in my next article. Don’t forget following.

 

Link Building

This is something one can understand by reading its name. Link building is the building of links. This includes both internally and externally.

Backlinks increases the reputation of a website. If a reputed site is linked to your site, a higher traffic will move to your website.

Guest Posting

I am sure all of you has heard about Guest posting. This is actually posting on others website so that one can follow you and visits your website.

There are few steps that one has to follow for guest posting.

 

1-Looking for a niche by typing a keyword.

2-Use the contact page of website chosen to get in touch with the owner of the site.

3-Ask them whether they will accept any guest post from you on a particular topic.

4-If they agree, then start writing a guest post otherwise find another website.

 

Public Announcement

Here I am talking about the announcement at the social media so that your followers are aware of whatever you started. This will also help you in getting traffic to your website.

 

Submission of site to social discussion

I would like to share some websites where you can submit your website to achieve traffic. StumbleUpon and Reddit are known to be the most popular ones. If you have not yet registered, you should immediately do this.

 

Videos

Users nowadays are looking for videos as reading a content requires more time than watching a video. I know that websites gets slower by including a video but it has been noticed that websites with videos gain the maximum traffic.

There are drawbacks but positivity should be the first thing one should see.

 

Paid ways to get more Visitors

There are two common paid ways that I have listed above to get higher traffic. These includes Buying Ads and Google adword.

The heading mentions it clearly as paid ways which mean that you will have to invest to get more visitors to your website.

With Google adwords, it would be easier as you will just have to pay per the click made. Pay per click is now common and there are number of websites spending money on such advertisements to gain higher traffic.
