Well, you are lucky to come across this post because i will be showing you some blogging tips to increase traffic from 80 best sources.



increase blog traffic using 80 best sources

We have all been there before. Earlier when most of us started blogging, we thought is as easy as writing  some few post in a week, hit the "publish" button and watch as traffic will start pumping in. We all have such thoughts, and that may be the reason why some of us venture into the field of blogging, because we can easily see the achievements of old and experienced bloggers.

But when it gets dawn on us, we realise that blogging is quite complicated. It does not primarily mean that once you pile up lots of blog post on you wall, then it will start attracting people's attention which ,makes them to start flocking in. IF that is the mindset you are having at the moment, then you need to have a rethink because it does not work as easy as that.

As a blogger (but new and old) who is really interested in the blogging business and you want to experience a growth in your blog in terms of increased audience, what you really need is proper planning. Try and re-strategise by itemising and giving the breakdown of everything you need to dazzle your readers by transforming your blog. Before showing you the 80 best sources for enormous traffic, please i will indulge you to look at the following basics, then tell yourself if you are really good to go.


Basics of Blogging

1. Ask yourself if you are in the right niche
Yes! you love blogging and you dream to have a blog, but the question is "what niche are you trying to venture into?" Or maybe you had already started a blog and find yourself in a particular niche, another question is "do you really love the nich you find yourself in?" Have a clear idea and plan of the niche you want and stick to it. The main issue is that it should be a niche you love and have more knowledge about.

2. Know your target audience and deliver to them what they want
Blogging is all about solving peoples problem. Know the exact problems of your readers or target audience and effectively deliver solutions to such problems.

3. Maintain a simple design for your blog
yes! nothing gives an audience or a reader much joy than a clutter-free blog. Remove unnecessary widgets and pop ups that will serve as distractions to your readers. They will not only increase your blog loading time (making it slow to load) but as well they can increase the bounce rate of your blog.

4. Interlink your blog post
By interlinking your blog post from, it will increase user engagement and also decrease your bounce rate. If you have not been doing this before, then i suggest you start it now.

5. Display your popular posts
It is also wise to display a list of your popular post (i.e. post that attracts more users within a set period of time; daily, weekly or monthly), because it can also look catchy to the eyes of your visitors and they may decide to take  look at them.  

6. Have an email subscription form
If a first time reader loves your blog he/she will like to visit again, but there are possibilities that such a person might forget your blog URL. So make things easier, provide an email opt-in form so that an audience can easily subscribe to your blog, and an automatic update will be sent to his/her email once you published a new post on your blog.

7. Have an About page
This is very necessary because an audience will like to know the motive of the blog he is subscribing to and also the author behind the blog. Make your About page as precise and clear enough, it doesn't necessary have to be formal. Tell them the aim of your blog and how you will try to solve their problems, because every audience is actually looking for a solution to one or more problems.

8. Create a contact form or a contact page
Some users might decide to get in touch with you personally, this where the contact page becomes active. In the contact page, clearly state your location address, email and maybe phone numbers. Some blogs use a contact form to satisfy this means, you should choose any that works for you because they all serve the same purpose.

9. Display your social media profile
Almost everybody in this world is on one social media platform on the other, so you can easily get them engaged by displaying the social media profiles of your blog too. You can display your Facebook page, Pinterest, Instagram, Google Plus, Twitter etc, all in form of an icon on your blog. You can also generate more Facebook likes, Twitter and Google Plus followers through this means.

10. Post frequently
Having met all the requirements above the next thing you should maintain is posting frequently. Your audience wants to see a new thing whenever they visit your blog, so try as much as possible to maintain a posting frequency. By doing this, you will keep them engaged as they will keep coming for more.

There are so many other blogging basics you need to know, but i just brought out this little few.

Now you have known the basics, the next thing is to get that traffic coming in. You should bare it in mind that it is a DIY thing, most of the sites are forums so try as much as possible to be active.
