7 Steps to Get More Blog Traffic and Engagement

simple blog hacks

In this article I show you how to get more blog traffic, increase
engagement and build your credibility by using simple blog hacks
that anyone can do.

So…

If you’re ready…

Let’s rock this!

 

Here are the 7 killer tactics I used to turn my
Desert Wasteland of a blog into a Thriving Oasis!

 

1) Optimize your content for people not search engines…

Now you would think that this one is a no brainer, but I see too
many bloggers still trying to please the big “G” with barely readable,
keyword stuffed articles.

While that may have worked like a champ back in 2005, it will just
get you penalized and laughed at today.

You can get some great tips on how to create engaging content from
another post right here on this blog…

2) Ping, Bookmark and Backlink every post…

Use sites like Masspinger.com, Pingler.com and Ping-o-matic to ping
your post immediately after you publish.

StumbleUpon is also great for social bookmarking and getting indexed
quickly as well.

You can even build up a following on StumbleUpon from doing this.

You’ll also want to use SocialMonkey.com to get your first 25 real
backlinks for each one of your post as well, these are great backlinks
done over a period of 3 days that won’t raise any flags.

…and it’s free!

 

3) Send every post to your email subscriber list…

Whether you realize it or not, your email list is a ready source of
traffic that you have at your finger tips.

Your subscribers will appreciate the free content as long as it’s
helpful, informative or entertaining.

This will also help you to build credibility and goodwill amongst
your subscribers so you can eventually make more sales.

 

4) Share your blog posts on your facebook wall…

This is the ultimate tactic for social proof and how I get so many real
fb likes on all of my blog posts. It also helps to add your post to your
fanpage if you have one…if not, go create one for your blog asap!

This helps with your overall “Branding” and “Credibility” out in the
marketplace as long as you are providing value to others through
posts.

 

5) Add the Facebook commenting plugin to your blog…

When I added this to my main blog, my engagement…went through
the roof!

Seriously, I don’t know why I didn’t do this a long time ago. Just go
to plugins, then click add new and then type “facebook comments”
in the search box and several will pop up.

I use the one by Alex Moss.

 

Watch how I do it in this video.

(In the video I said that I was going to only use facebook comments on my
blog, but since then I have found that using both comment systems works
even better!)

 


6) Join blog sharing and syndication groups…

This is another great tactic that will give you a quick boost in quality
traffic. There are a lot of these groups on facebook and they are very
easy to find.

Just type “blog syndication groups” in the graph search bar at the top
of your profile page.

 

7) Leave relevant and or helpful comments on related blogs…

This tactic is called “Blog Hopping” and it’s how you get the most out
of the syndication groups.

You simply go to the other blogs in the groups read the posts and leave
your genuine feedback.

This will get you more exposure in the marketplace and backlinks to
your blog if they are using the right type of commenting system.

The most popular one being “Comment Luv” will even show a link to
your latest post.

Again, You can find a ton of these groups on Facebook by typing…
“Blogging” , “Blog Syndication” or “Blog Sharing” in graph search.

Well, I certainly hope the tips in this little article was helpful to you,

      Thanks for stopping by Donna, you’re always welcomed 🙂

      And yeah some things you just can’t quite get across in
      written form, so every now and then I’ll do a video to
      get the point across more clearly…so glad you liked it.
