How to Boost Traffic to Your Blog

Write fewer blogs to get more traffic.

Copyblogger suggests that we can all build essential blog traffic, if we just write a few less blogs.

Their tested strategy is to:

  • Publish only one ‘good’ blog per week. It has to be good. One well-written, well-researched blog post will get more links than a dozen hurried posts.  Tip- if you are spending less than two hours on a post, you are going too fast. Cut quantity.  Focus on quality.
  • Publish one guest post each month on a popular blog. Every other traffic strategy in the blogosphere requires connections.  If you publish one guest post every month on a popular blogs, you will have connections with twelve influential people at the end of one year.
  • After you get some results, expand: Once you build up more connections, you will want to blog more.  It is fun to write when you know there is an audience.  You will also be able to build your social network and trusted links.

Cut down on blog posts to free up time for promotion and guest blogging and watch your blog traffic rev up!
