Started from the bottom, now we already have 15k traffic a month. I say Respect!
Which blog has the best answer? Everyone pretends to be an expert, but at the end of the day there are not that many real experts out there. But experience is key! We are not the best, but we are definitely not like the rest;)
You want to gain more traffic to your blog. We all want that right.
You don’t want people to only like your blog, you want them to visit your blog daily!
Traffic is everything. Traffic means money. You already heard that. Make money with premium advertisers like Ezoic, Mediavine or Adthrive.
You also know that most traffic comes through Google. People search for information in Google. Although TikTok is a big competitor. TikTok is becoming a search engine on itself and that is no good news for us, cause we focus on Google. On Google traffic.
But how do you increase your traffic? How to increase your blog popularity?
There are a few things you can do. Read them here below.
1.Write about trends and popular topics
Don’t just blog about the things you love (you can do this once your blog is popular and make a mix out of it), but write about the things people search for so write about trends. If your blog is about blogging write about blogging trends for 2023. Give blogging tips. If your blog is about fashion you can write about the trends for winter 2022. What are people gonna wear? But also write about different kind of styles. What is gothic fashion? What is lesbian fashion? What is edgy fashion? (my style!). Check the big fashion blogs like Vogue, Who What Wear and look for popular topics. You can check your competition on www.similarweb.com.
2. Post regulary
Don’t just blog once a month. No blog every week at least twice a week. Keep your blog updated. Google loves that. You will see a good amount of traffic of you post at least twice or three times a week.
Stay blogging! Don’t quit after just 1 year after seeing no results. Blogging takes time! Take your time!
3.Also use social media
I always say: fame has the game. Are you already popular on social media? Use it for your blog. You will have traffic already. You have the name, the fame and the game. People will go to your blog and you can make money more easily. Thats why I dont get why famous people like Cardi B and Kim Kardashian don’t start a blog to make some extra money. Also Dutch people like Famke Louise and Selma Omari could use their social media fame for extra blogging money. Blogging is a great way to make money and can even make you a millionaire.
You can also invest in some advertising on social media. Boost a post and increase its reach. For 50 dollar you can reach a lot of people and those people can keep coming back to your blog.
You will need to network and spread the world you have a blog. Give everyone your businesscards. Go to fashion events or other networking events and give your card.
You can also put your businesscards in coffee bars and restaurants. You never know who will find your card and wants to see your blog. You only need 1 good person that sees potential in your blogs and wants to invest in you and your talent.
5.You need SEO
If you are a newbie to blogging you probably have no idea what that means or is. But it is necessary to get organic traffic.
SEO means everything you do to optimize your blog for search engines like Google, Bing etc.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the practice of growing a website’s traffic from organic search results. It involves things like keyword research, content creation, link building, and technical audits.
There is a lot involved and most marketing agencies can do this for you.
Of course you can learn it yourself but this takes time. If you do want to do the SEO yourself then take this course. Become a SEO Master!
So started from the bottom, now we at 15k traffic a month in just 6 months with the help of a SEO course, some writing courses and a lot of Googlen and digging.
We all gotta start somewhere in life.
I say: Respect!
