      I would just optimize your site accordingly, and submit it to Google and Bing Webmaster tools. Actually, Bing came out with a new interface which I actually like better than GWT. It has all these recommendations.

      From there you can start link building, through different types of outreach to sites / blogs etc.

      Start out with your content first and foremost.

    I find with blogs the real challenge is building up repeat visitors. You can do all the seo in the world and post on all the right communities but you want people to come back.

    Thats why I find email marketing invaluable, each email address you capture is a chance for you to re-market to that person and turn them into a regular reader.

      Combine your email marketing with blogging and now you can increase those repeat visitors. Give your email subscribers a tease of the full post and let them click back to the post.

      I don't want to read a 500-1000 word email but have no problem reading that much on a blog.

      Also instead of just sending affiliate offer swipes, link back to your blog for a full product review going the soft sell route.

      Thanks, Shane

        This is spot on for getting repeat visitors.

        Would like to add that engaging content is key to getting repeat viewers. This is achieved by using the same language as your audience (if you want help with this, just jump on some forums in the relevant niche and find out what people are saying)

    Your post is a bit too simplistic OP.

    The first way to increase your blogs traffic is to stop posting mediocre content and start making some of the best stuff in your niche that people can't ignore.

    Content that is heavily shareable, link baits people, and references lots of others in the niche (helps with sharing).

    Find out common problems in the niche and then solve that problem better than ever before, more in-depth, more detail, above and beyond.

    Scope out the most shared / linked to content in your niche and make something bigger and better - you can use Topsy.com to find highly shared content or Open Site Explorer to see the most linked to content on big sites in your niche.

    Also network with others in your niche, share their stuff, link to them, reference them, do something cool for them without asking for anything in return.

    If you keep doing this eventually they will return the favor assuming you have content worth sharing.

    Re-package / syndicate / share your content around the net.

    Turn into PDFs and post to doc sharing sites, turn into slides for Slideshare, videos for YT & Vimeo, podcasts.

    Share PDF files to free / download sections of related forums, suggest to big pages on Scoop.it, add to Flipboard.

    Take advantage of sites like Reddit, Digg, Inbound, Kingged.com, Stumblupon or whatever is relevant.

    Post to big FB groups that are niche related.

    Tweet out to people in your niche with big audiences that you know will like it and suggest it to them.

    Mail out to your email list both a broadcast + a follow up to the end of the series for continual traffic.

    This post here goes into MUCH more detail about it...

      Exactly, it's all about publishing highly helpful quality content. You can post all the mediocre content you want but you will not become the authority in your niche. I would also add that if you want to increase traffic and tour traffic is plateauing at the moment. Then either creating a different category of your niche related to your site topic can help you grow. The other method too is going onto a different marketing channel such as podcasts, youtube, facebook, or wherever you don't have a presence yet can help.

    Good tips in here.

    I can't say that I'm a blogging guru, but I have more experience than 90%.

    Why is that? Well, because 90% give up after they don't have immediate success.

    Also, a huge variable that determines blogging perpetuity... Is if you actually enjoy writing.

    If you write your own content and can produce content that doesn't totally suck... You have a chance.

    If you have absolutely zero desire to write, your writing sucks, or you outsource content, you have less chance persevering. (Outsourcing especially, because I'd imagine constantly spending money on content would grow tiresome without returns that many expect instantly).

    Oh. About traffic? That comes after you get people's attention. If you have a following that gives a damn, traffic is all but guaranteed.

    Just my $.02.

    Search Engines are a powerful key for traffic. SEO is easy to setup if using an SEO-friendly platform, such as Wordpress or Joomla. Effort to make your content optimized for search engines will attract thousands of visitors seeking your post.

    Hi,

    Blogging is a LONG term game.

    Short term fixes for this are not required.

    Just post GREAT content, share what YOU know.

    Post content that got YOU EXCITED when you leaned a particular
    trick, tips or strategy etc.

    I have REPEAT visitor traffic go back to my blog every single day, week,
    month and year.

    That's because I have posts there that give insane content.

    Then that has a "KNOCK ON" effect as Google notices this and starts
    RANKING some of my posts in the search engine listings.

    So instead of trying to rank first...

    ...TRY and post stellar content and have people keep going back to
    your site again and again.

    Also, the longer people stay at your site the better your rankings also.

    How can I have a document that can be seen online but the person cannot copy or download?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9090077].message }}
    • The best, fastest and safest way to rank on Google is to have a mindset like a farmer.

      Every content you create are seeds that in the future will become your harvest.

      You can use different types of "seeds" like youtube seeds since its the second to Google as a search engine and you can rank pretty quickly on youtube even without any backlinks.

      Here is just one technique I use to increase my traffic.

      You can start just by having to optimize your youtube videos step by step:

      Step 1: keyword must be in title. Having a researched keyword on your title that you are trying to rank for. Same thing applies with your blog post title.

      Step 2: have a good description with your link to your blog post and blog site. Eg.
      Yourname.com - visit my site to learn more about how to increase google ranking - http://www.yourname.com/rank-google-tips

      Step 3:Next create a mini blog on description with jeywords and lsi keyword.

      Step 4: put time stamps on key points on your vids at the beginning of your paragraph
      00:10 - i discuss about video marketing
      01:20 - i discuss about email marketing

      Step 5: create a bright image for your video

      Step 6: transcript. I know its hard work but to be on top you must do captions on your videos.

      Step 7: embed your youtube video on your blog.

      Step 8: optimize your blog post On page by using seopressor plugin

      Step 9: publish

      Step 10: create pyramid backlinks
      Low tier backlinks like comments ==> high tier links like web 2.0 ==> to your blog Aka money site.*

      Step 11: post your blog link to your social mediums like facebook and youtube.

      While you wait for your content to rank on Google(may take a few weeks even Optimized), *this is where you can invest on paid ads like, solo ads, ppv or ppc.

      This is by far the best way to scale your business and exposure. *Your ATM is in your targeted responsive hungry list whatever niche it is so do your research on good solo ads and ppv providers.

      Once you get profit from sales, keep 30% for yourself and 70% reinvest back for your business and paid traffic to keep scaling and building your list.

      Finally, you must take care of your list like flowers. *Watering them with inspirational and motivational stories of your own or others.

      Never shove your affiliate products down your list's throat all the time. *There is time and place for everything.

      You should really build your relationship first by asking them what they need help with, what problems they may have or ask them for their opinion on topics.

      This is the best way I find to get people to convert. *Making sales is important and without it your business dies but people never join business affiliates or buy products. *People join people.

      People will join and buy from people they can trust because its a natural human reaction from relations.

    Those are good ones, but one thing I'm currently working on is building some kind of bootcamp on my blog in exchange for an email address for my list. I then email them on regular basis and link them to my bootcamp on my blog. That way hopefully they'll keep coming back to learn from your bootcamp.

      How to benefit from other bloggers' traffic in 10 easy steps.

      (1)Determine what narrow focus (keyword/s) you want to
      promote for your blog

      (2)You are going to create a Top 10 list of best posts
      in the last 6? (or more) months on that topic. More below.

      (3)Research via Google, Google Blog Search, Bing, YouTube
      and any other appropriate search engines. Use multiple
      closely related keywords. You may have to drill down 10-20
      pages of results to get enough high quality posts.

      (4)Use Google Alerts and Talkwalker Alerts - The best free alternative to Google Alerts
      to research different keywords.

      (5)Learn to use and set up the search resources at Scoop.it:
      Build engaged audiences through publishing by curation. | Scoop.it

      I am emphasizing the RESEARCH resources of this site for our
      immediate goal NOT the publishing resources (although don't
      rule the latter out).

      You should repeat these research steps for future lists on different
      or related topics.

      (6)Join About Us - Listly
      This is where you are going to create your Top 10 list.

      -a-It must be an ANNOTATED list. You are going to supply
      a brief insight or analysis of the benefit each post offers.

      -b-You will see that an image or a choice of images will
      accompany each link (blog post) that you list. In many cases
      it will pay to find a royalty free image that you can substitute
      for the available choices.

      -c-Decide what order the posts should appear on the list.
      (Using alphabetical order avoids any hurt feelings).

      (7)Publish the list on your blog first (for SEO purposes), then
      immediately on List.ly

      (8)Make sure you have an opt-in form on your blog to
      capture new visitors since you will create substantial return
      (regular) traffic from list members.

      (9)Notify the original bloggers of their appearance on the
      list. FOLLOW THEM on Twitter et all. RT their tweets.

      -a-Email subject line: (Name) Your extraordinary blog post
      appears on a Top 10. . .
      (Curiosity should always get the email opened. Same thing if
      you are using a contact form. Use the above for the subject line.)

      (10)Publicize REPEATEDLY your list on social media and through
      blog comments.

      Make sure your comments are meaningful and add value. Put the
      url of your Top 10list in the website slot when you add your comment.
      Good comments will provoke a click on your name (use your full name)
      out of curiosity. So you do not have to mention your list in the
      blog comment you make to create traffic back to your blog.

      You will find that most or all of the bloggers mentioned on your
      list will link to it. After all, it will benefit their visitors to read
      the other useful posts on the same related topic.

      You should get substantial direct traffic if you are including well
      established bloggers in your list. Plus, you will get increased
      opt-in list members who will enrich you with repeat traffic from
      email marketing.

      Best of success.

    Joint the RIGHT communities is very important as well. Like joining Warrior Forum.
    This is to save your time, where a huge portion of your audience can be found here, such as forum, websites and social media communities discussing the same topics. If you do not know where the place is, Google search is your best friend. Once determined, join and participate actively with posting useful info/comments which will reward with traffic, trust and fans.
