learn the business of blogging – always free
We all want to grow our blog traffic as quickly as possible. But what are the most practical ways to accomplish this? Here are five things I did to double my blog traffic in just 3 months. You can easily replicate my method which I’ll detail below.
Double Blog Traffic Fast
In order to double a blog’s traffic fast, you have to be willing to put in the hard work. You have to be willing to write the best piece of content on the internet and use keywords that people are actually searching for.
There are lots of ways to grow a blog’s traffic. Here is my strategy for doubling blog traffic fast.
Post Every Weekday
The best way to double your traffic is to post as often as you can. For me, this meant writing a long form blog post every single day of the week. Monday through Friday I was pumping out a new post of at least 1,000 words. Even when I didn’t want to, I made content publishing a priority. If you don’t have the time to write a brand new blog post yourself, then consider outsourcing your blog writing by using a content agency or a freelance job site.
Write Long-Form Pillar Content
Next, I made sure that there was at least one long-form content piece for every single category on my site. Writing cornerstone content or “pillar posts” takes a lot of time but it’s definitely worth it. Pillar content shows Google that you are an expert on the topic of your blog. Five to seven pieces of pillar content posts are necessary for growing your blog’s traffic.
I also organized my blog posts by topic clusters, also called content clusters. Content clusters are groups of blog posts around the same topic that cover it as extensively as possible. Each blog post is unique and provides new value to the reader and all together they greatly inform the user about a specific topic.
As soon as I published a new blog post I made sure to add internal links from other posts already on the site pointing to this new blog post. Internally linking your content shows that you are trying to become an expert on the topic and help your readers learn more about a specific subject. It helps keep readers on your site longer, as well as tells Google what your other blog posts are about.
Pin 3-4 Times Per Post
Lastly, I made sure to promote my content on Pinterest. Each blog post receives about 3 to 4 new pins which are spaced out at least once per day. If I’m using a service like Tailwind, then the blog posts get shared on Pinterest once per week. Tailwind has helped grow my traffic and I highly recommend it!
