24 Fool Proof Techniques To Boost Blog Growth
Other smart bloggers have tried and tested a lot of techniques to get their blogs out of this occasional and periodical rut.
These 24 techniques that I have shortlisted are the ones that were not only tested but found to be massively effective in giving your blog the much needed push to set it into perpetual growth and expansion.
The 24 techniques are divided among 5 major categories as follows:
1] By Putting Your Blog Content To Maximum Use
Increase the amount of content by writing more posts and also by increasing the frequency of your posts. So if you had been writing just 2 posts per week, increase it to 4 per week.
Improve your content by paying more attention to catchy titles, modifying your writing voice to better suit your audience interests, work harder to provide best quality information.
Boost your content by adding attractive and relevant media, providing links to related posts on your blog and other blogs as well, that explain the topic in greater detail
Innovate your content by trying something new. Maybe if you had been writing long posts, you should try out shorter posts now and vice versa.
2] By Using Content Created By Other Bloggers
Allow guest posting on your blog, but beware of the type of content that you publish on your blogs. I basically have had a very bad experience with all of my guest bloggers. Nowadays it is really hard to find genuine guest bloggers, because all of the guest posting requests comes from SEO companies disguised as wannabe guest bloggers
Content curation is a great technique to have lots of high quality and valuable posts on your blog without writing even a single word of it. But make sure that the content that you are curating is only of the highest quality.
Interview other bloggers and invite them to share their experiences, tips and most importantly their advice, with your blog readers.
List posts showcasing top 20/ 50 awesome blog posts written by other bloggers on a particular topic in your niche is another great way to get free content and of course back links from the other bloggers.
3] Put Other Blogs / Sites To Maximum Use
Write guest posts on other authority blogs in your niche. You will get highlighted on the other blog and your blog will bask in the limelight, bringing in many new subscribers and traffic.
Offer interviews to other bloggers.
Request links from other blogs to your high quality blog posts.
Use CommentLuv plugin on your blog and leave comments on other blogs your niche, that also use this plugin in. This will highlight your latest posts below your comments and bring in new traffic and readers.
Involve in discussions on topics in your blog niche with other likeminded bloggers on social sites, other blogs, groups etc
Provide help, advice, tips to newbie bloggers in your niche. The best way to do this is to join forums or groups, where bloggers/ readers in your blog niche hang out online.
Social bookmarking sites like Buffer, Reddit, StumbleUpon etc must be used to share your blog post links and redirect traffic from these highly trafficked sites.
Get highlighted on other blog by solving the blog owner’s problem for free.
4] Maximize Organic Traffic To Your Blog
Latest SEO tactics must be learnt, understood and applied to get the most traffic from search engines
Use sites like Bottlenose, Topsy, Quora to find what people want to know and create blog posts on that topic
Use free tools like Google Insights (now Google trends) to know what the trending searches are for certain for various time periods, starting from 2004.
Hot discussions in forums can be used as ideas for your blog posts and make sure that you provide detailed and in-depth answers to the issues raised during discussions.
5] Utilize Freebies
- Giveaways are a great tactic to attract attention of a lot of other bloggers towards your blog
- Distribute free eBooks / guides in exchange for a tweet / social share of the link
- Set up a free webinar on a topic that is currently trending in your niche
- Offer free e-course on a popular topic within your blog niche
Every blog encounters a phase of inertia at one point or another. The best way to get out of this inertia is to DO something. But doing just about anything won’t get you the results that you desire, which is growth and development of your blog.
