It is the question that every blogger has. Bloggers want to see their traffic rise exponentially, but most bloggers do not know how to make that happen. For some bloggers, doubling monthly traffic will be easier in some months than on other months. Doubling 100 views in 1 month is easier than doubling 1000 views in 1 month. However, both of those numbers can be doubled within 1 month.
After several months of consistently doubling my blog’s traffic, my blog went from 500 monthly views to over 10,000 monthly views. The rise of this traffic was because I was getting more targeted followers at a faster rate. My traffic doubled yet again when I decided to tweet every 30 minutes instead of tweeting once every hour. Now, I am going to try and double my blog’s traffic again. My goal is to get my blog to surpass 25,000 views in May. It is going to be a challenging task to implement, but at the rate I am moving in, it is possible.
My goal is to schedule pins every day of the month, continue growing my Twitter presence, and boosting my blog’s SEO. Something helpful to know is that a blog’s SEO rises as traffic from social networks rises. I calculated that I should be able to get over 6,000 extra monthly views just from this, so I am halfway there.
The big thing to know that social networks and how frequently you post on those social networks is critical to your blog’s success. I have not tried this yet, but now with HootSuite Pro, I may be scheduling some posts to go up on my Facebook Page. That can give my blog an extra 100 views every month. In addition, getting traffic from the Facebook page will boost my blog’s SEO.
If you want your blog’s traffic to double, look at your social networks. If you are tweeting every two hours, bring the rate up to one tweet every hour. Then, bring that rate to one tweet every 30 minutes. If you are not using a social network effectively, build a presence on that social network. When I started to use Pinterest, I was getting no traffic to my blog from that social network. Over 10,000 targeted followers later, people are regularly repinning my pins and visiting my blog.
It’s all in your social media presence. Your SEO improves as your presence on your social networks build.
