Have you just started to blog and feel frustrated? Getting people to view your blog or gaining any sort of traffic is one of the hardest things to do if you’re new to blogging. I do have a few tips to help get some traffic to your brand and get the exposure you deserve! Here are 3 ways to get blog traffic that have helped me!
If you are just starting out and you want to see some fast wins, Facebook groups are the quickest way to get traffic. Unlinke Google or Pinterest, you don’t need to understand any So or how to optimize your post. Many groups have weekly threads that give you the chance to promote something on your website! This can be just a quick link to a bog post, a social media channel that you are needing to grow or just a fun freebie that you want to ask to help grow your e-mail or subscribers. These threads can also help you drive traffic back to your site. When I first began blogging, I really focused on my Pinterest and Facebook groups. Between these 2 channels, it really helped! Now there is a downside though- you may need to help those in return which can take a while if there are hundreds of people within the group. I mean, most people won’t really dig through hundreds of comments to read your post but it really depends on how large the Facebook group is. Make sure you add value to that group. Many of them don’t like bloggers who just go in and drop their links and don’t contribute anything! If you add value, you can help to answer questions, help find your niche and really make followers into friends!

Pinterest is such a great social channel! I use it as a search engine to look for keywords and I think of keywords that people will also search on Pinterest for. When I think of my boards or write my pin descriptions. Use your Pinterest and FB groups at the same time. Personally, I think Pinterest is SUPER fast when it comes to getting traffic, especially if you already have content ready to go! Try to write posts ahead of time, design your pins and then begin marketing them! Make sure your boards are in categories that attract your readers. Clean them up and make them try to get repinned about 3 times and make sure that they are eye catching! Be mindful of pinning too much or watching your pins not get enough traffic. Google is also important but it takes longer. With Google, you don’t have to spend a lot of time creating your pins or join group boards. Use the Yoast SEO as a great plugin which walks you through what you need to make your blog post stand out. It’s a great tool for those that have WordPress. Focus on growing your Google SEO but know that it will take a long time. It might even take a year- because I saw a huge result of about 20 k per month after 4 months for a blog post so be patient.
