Here’s How To Bring More Traffic To Your Blog
Throughout my few years of blogging for my home business blog I have had the pleasure of meeting such wonderful friends and know for a fact that’s one of the reasons it kept me blogging. In terms of how my blogger friends write their content for their blogs, I would say they fall into 2 categories of bloggers.
The first category of bloggers write for their blog readers as well as the search engines especially Google. The second group of readers write exclusively for their readers and will never allow themselves to be subject to having to change their writing to please the Google bots. I belong to the first group. Which type of blogger are you?
I digress a little:
All right, so now you know which type of blogger I am. Which category of blogger are you and why? Do share your thoughts by giving your comment at the end of this post.
Well whenever I blog although I write predominantly for readers, I never do much research on what kind of topics my readers prefer to read based on the current trend or any recent newsworthy events in the Internet Marketing world. Perhaps I should but I just write whatever comes to mind and I think is interesting enough for my readers. That probably is not the best way if you’re writing contents specifically to generate more traffic to your blog. After all this translates to how to make money blogging too right?
Well today I was asking myself if I had to write a blog post with information that my readers prefer to read today where on earth would I go to find this out. Fortunately it didn’t take me long to find this out. Here’s what I found out:
If you are using a wordpress blog, click on the “Blog Stats” link found in your WP dashboard and it then displays a statistics page. Next click on “Top Posts & Pages”. When I am here, all my most viewed pages by my readers are displayed with selected views of 7 days, 30 days, Quarter and even for the full year. That’s very useful information about what kind of topics your visitors are most interested in.
With this information available to you, you know just what your visitors are looking for in your blog. The fact that most of your traffic comes from the search engines like Google is largely due to what keywords you are ranking for your blog. That adds the sweetness to the flavor as you now know just what topic to focus on for very targeted traffic coming continuously to your blog.
Here’s what my last 7 days’ most viewed pages revealed to me…
- It tells me that there are more visitors landing on my blog’s home page than any other pages.
- People are very keen on learning more about my passive income ideas I have shared so long ago on my home business blog.
- Visitors continue to be interested about my Xfactor’s Micro Niche Adsense Websites. They are also brought here by Google because the keyword phrase “Micro Niche Adsense Course” and “Xfactor Micro Niche Adsense” are both currently on Google’s #2 position.
- getting free backlinks remains many blogger’s ultimate challenge since the dawn of Internet Marketing.
Needless to say, with such information at your finger tips, you could also focus on these posts to improve on other aspects of your business. For me, it allowed me to tweak my adsense placements on them as well as improve on my affiliate links.
