This is a guest post by Taylor Thompson who is a blogger and currently writes at DoStrong. Read in this post, how you can increase your blog traffic surprisingly in one week by “________”. So, if you want to increase your blog traffic then continue reading this post.
Before I begin, I would really like to thank Sushant for the opportunity. Guest posting is my new thing to do, and it’s an honor to be guest posting on a blog that I have been familiar with for over a year now, if not longer. Back when I was blogging about ‘blogging’, Sushant and I actually linked to each other in our blog rolls.
Today, I am here to teach you guys how to greatly increase your blog traffic within 1 week. This post is not going to be a gimmick. You really can increase your blog traffic within 1 week, even if your blog is fresh out of the oven. How do you do this? Let me just put it this way; It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.
A few days ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to run into a great product called Guest Post Secrets. Don’t worry, I’m not trying to sell you anything. The product was written by Erica at Erica.biz. At age 26, Erica sold her first business (a hosting company) for $1,100,000.00. After watching the videos provided in Guest Post Secrets, I learned that I was missing 1 component to blogging that was really keeping me from being successful.
From Erica’s videos, I learned that to be a successful blogger, I needed to really be surrounded by other successful bloggers. Essentially, I need to make quality friends with as many elite bloggers as possible. The more bloggers I can become friends with, the more bloggers I will have writing about my site, and allowing me to guest post on their sites. This strategy is called networking, and it’s nothing new. Sadly, many bloggers fail to network, but today, I am here to tell you how to begin.
Steps to Increase Your Blog Traffic with Guest Posting
If you want to know how to increase your blog traffic with guest posting, be sure to follow each step below. If used properly and consistently, you could get hundreds or even thousands of free visitors to your website. Also, you will be receiving a quality backlink within Google, which is always a plus.
Step 1. Find a Blog to Write for
Before you can submit your guest post to a blog, you will need to find a blog to write for. The blog doesn’t necessarily have to be in your niche. Just find a blog that you know you can submit quality information to. One great way of doing this is by searching Google for a niche + “guest post,” or “guest post by.” Results in Google will return with a bunch of sites related to the niche you submitted, which also allow for guest posts.
Step 2. Contact a Popular Blogger
Once you have found a good blog to submit a guest post to, you need to contact the owner of this website. Tell the blogger you’re contacting him/her because you would like to write a blog post for their site. Also, be sure to show the blogger some of your other articles, as examples of your work. This kind of works as a resume.
Step 3. Getting the Response Email
If the blogger you have contacted has given you the, “Yes,” to a guest post, then begin writing. When you initially contact the blogger, you may want to throw some guest posts ideas their way, to make sure your posting ideas meet their requirements. This way, when you submit your article to the blogger, they’re more likely to accept it.
Step 4. Writing the Blog Post
A popular blogger has just given you a great opportunity to write on their blog. Don’t write a junk post that nobody is going to care about. Truly think about how you’re going to write your article, and really make sure that the post you’re submitting will be beneficial to the blog owner’s subscribers.
Step 5. Send that Blog Post
Now that you have written your blog post, you will want to send it to the blogger. It’s important to keep the blogger’s work to a minimum, so always send them the blog post via email as a notepad attachment with properly formatted html. This way, they can simply copy and paste your article into their website.
Step 6. Your Article is Accepted. Congratulations!
This is where the fun begins. If your article has been accepted by a popular blog, especially if this blog has thousands or hundreds of thousands of subscribers, then begin to watch the traffic flow your way. Seriously, folks. You can get thousands of referring visitors by doing guest posts, which is why I highly recommend them.
Just like high school, if you knew a popular person, and you were in with them, you were popular. Whether you like it or not, blogging is a popularity contest. The more bloggers you know, the more chances you will have at being successful.
