Many people spend a lot of money to increase traffic for their blog, sometimes the effort doesn’t pay. The good thing is that you can spend nothing but still grow your traffic to make your site an authority one. I always believe that you don’t have to spend any amount of money if you want to grow your blog. I have created more than 5 blogs and all of them grow naturally.
To increase the traffic of your blog for free, use the following ideas:
- Write good content
Write good content that will keep your readers visiting the site regularly. This way you’ll maintain the current readers and get new visitors over time.
- Post on your website regularly
Without posting regularly, you won’t maintain the number of readers you currently get to your blog. The more frequent you post, the more visitors your blog gets and the more traffic grows. But even as you post, make sure the content is good and appealing to your readers.
- Share content on social media
Create Facebook groups and Twitter accounts which you will use to share your content. Share every article you post in your blog. The more you share, the more traffic your blog gets.
- Put share buttons on your blog
Put share buttons on your blog such that whenever your readers go through your content, they are able to share it in their social media pages. Your audience will share the content on Facebook, Twitter, Bing, Google etc
