There are several strategies that can help you to garner more real traffic to your blog. The ones that I find to be the most effective are:
SEO. You need to understand how search engines work and incorporate that knowledge into your blogs. You need to make sure that you include all the keywords you want to be ranked for, and do so wisely. That means targeting more low-competition keywords and focusing on long-tail keywords.
Optimising your content for voice search. We’re shifting into the world where people are soon to stop typing at all. The more advanced voice input becomes, the less we use actual typing. You need to account for this tendency and target the phrases that associate with voice search.
Make sure to post relevant and high-value content. It’s not just about the keywords. If you produce a flawless in terms of SEO article, but it’s literally no different to the competitors’ entries, merely because it’s a piece of recycled text, you aren’t going to boost traffic. Instead, you should focus on producing the content that keeps on giving, such as checklists, guides and case studies that can be referenced in the future.
Make sure you have guest posting enabled. You can easily promote your blog if you give other people a chance to become your contributors.
Submit guest posts yourself. Garner organic traffic by cooperating with other blogs.
