How To drive More Traffic To Your Blog

It's mind-blowing how a few tweaks and alterations can really shape the success route to a site.
Revisiting what I said in the previous post, it's not usually the main content there's an issue with - but everything surrounding it.

Here are 5 simple ways to gain a wider readership:

I'm talking: photos, videos, Gifs, colours, fonts. All of which should work simultaneously with the title.
Alongside the title, the photos/images of your blog are the first thing to gain a readers attention. If it's visually pleasing, it's that extra bit click worthy.

Know your place on the blogosphere. Is it fashion? beauty? baking?Lifestyle?
Once you've found your industry, stick to it. That's not to say you shouldn't venture around your niche (content variation's always appreciated), but try to revolve your content around what you're readership come for.

Yes... I know I'm being hypocritical considering I'm rambling on about marketing on a Beauty, fashion & lifestyle blog, but as long as it's a 'once in a blue moon' kinda thing then...

Look back in your archives. Are there any hidden gems that you devoted hours to which didn't do quite as well as you anticipated?

How about updating them? Maybe give them a little revamp if they're in need of rejuvenation. Upload them again and you never know.

I'll keep this one short and sweet; it's fairly self - explanatory. Articles with embedded subheadings, in comparison to a continuous chunk of writing, are much easier for a reader to digest.

If they struggle to read your content, chances are they won't come back.

Just like all organisms on planet earth, all blogs and sites are different. Therefore they will all contain their own individual statistics and analytics - provided by most blogging platforms. And you may find it surprising how significantly your blogs traffic can change just by acknowledging the basic background  of your site.

I'd strongly recommend Google Analytics, enabling you to know what the best time for your site to post is, your demographics, your most popular content, etc. The list is infinite.

  1. Great ideas! I love how short and to the point all your posts are! I always come to your posts straight away, and save other peoples posts when I know they will be longer! Love the tips! xx

    1. Thanks so much!!:) I try not to ramble on too much because I don’t want anyone to get bored haha. Hope it helped !x

  2. These are all great ideas! I like going out of my niche sometimes (it can even bring new people to the blog) but I always notice those posts don't do as well.

    1. Thanks a lot!! It’s definitely important to write about what you enjoy even if it is going out of your niche:)
