When you mention the word “traffic” the ear of any blogger around starts to sizzle. The reason for this is because every blogger knows that traffic is the most important element that can determine the success or failure of their blog.
It is true that a lot of factors will determine whether your site will succeed or not, but still, the importance of traffic should never be underestimated. This is because no matter how great the changes you make to your blog there won’t be a difference without traffic and if your blog is very poor you can still make an impact if you could get the right amount of traffic and the right type of traffic. This article will be giving you a few changes you can make to your blog to increase your traffic significantly.
Make Effective Use of Your Keywords in your Title
One of the major changes you can make to your blog is by using your keywords in your blog title. We all know that the search engines are one of the main sources of traffic for every blogger but the problem is that a lot of people want to rank for some keywords without doing anything to target the keyword for their blogs.
While links can make a huge difference in how well you rank in the search engines it is important for you not to underestimate the words you use in your title.
Another thing is that aside from the fact that using the right keywords in your title will make it easy for you to rank in the search engines it will also make it easy for people to know what your site is all about, and whenever people want to link to you they will use the keyword you are targeting.
It is also very important not to dilute the message of your blog title because you want to optimize it for the search engines. For example, if you want to rank for the keywords nutrisystem and medifast it will make complete sense to have a title like “The best Medifast and Nutrisystem tips” than to start stuffing your title with all the keywords you want to rank for.
Look for Your Key Content, and Write More of Them
Another tactic that can make a difference in how much traffic you get to your blog is looking for your key content and then writing more of them. For example, if you have a health blog and your major traffic is coming from keywords related to obesity and fitness then you will get a lot more results by optimizing your old articles and by writing new articles that are targeting that keyword.
Another way to make effective use of this tactic is by taking looking at the most popular articles on your blog and then investing more time into writing more articles like that.
Focus on Converting Your Traffic into Subscribers
This might be the least of the tips you want to hear, but it can make a whole lot of difference in how much more traffic you are getting to your blog.
One thing I have noticed is that a lot of blogs find it easier to succeed once they have a lot of subscribers. This is because a lot more people are exposed to their content regularly.
Instead of thinking about traffic every time why not start thinking more about how to convert your traffic into subscribers who will be able to see your content as soon as it is published? You will get a lot of results from this on the long run.
