Getting traffic to a blog can take a variety of actions. Traffic doesn’t just come from one place or technique but from a culmination of many things. Here’s a quick checklist of 10 things you can do to get your blog traffic kick-started. Try one or several a day to steadily grow your traffic.

 

  1. Install Google Analytics. This will tell you where your traffic is coming from so you’ll know what’s working and what isn’t working.

  2. Change your blog linking structure. By default, most blogs don’t have SEO-friendly URL structures. Change it so your keywords are in there by default.

  3. Use the Google Keyword Tool to find potential keywords to try and optimize for. Try to find questions that your ideal clients want to know the answers to.

  4. Find a world class template to use. Make sure it has both great design and ease of navigation. I recommend Woo Themes.

  5. Start commenting on other blogs related to yours. Start getting known in your space.

  6. Create a posting schedule. It’s more important that you post consistently than perfectly. If you can have at least 1-2 posts scheduled at any given time, you’re in good shape.

  7. Write provocative blog posts to showcase your unique passions, beliefs & core message.

  8. Submit press releases to online PR sites. This will not only result in a bunch of backlinks to your blog, at best you’ll get picked up by a reputable website which would result in a lot of traffic as well as a high PR backlink.

  9. Create a “Frequently Asked Questions” about your industry, profession or what your specialty.

  10. Remember to share your links on your social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, plus bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon & Delicious.
