Five Things To Do Now To Get More Traffic To Your Blog


 

BLOG

1. Add Tags & Meta Tags

Add tags to your posts. Many blog systems allow authors to add free-form tags to a post, along with (or instead of) placing the post into categories. For example, a post may display that it has been tagged with baseball and tickets. Each of those tags is usually a web link leading to an index page listing all of the posts associated with that tag. The blog may have a sidebar listing all the tags in use on that blog, with each tag leading to an index page. To reclassify a post, an author edits its list of tags. All connections between posts are automatically tracked and updated by the blog software; there is no need to relocate the page within a complex hierarchy of categories. (via)

Meta tags are HTML codes that are inserted into the header on a web page, after the title tag. In the context of search engine optimization, when people refer to meta tags, they are usually referring to the meta description tag and the meta keywords tag.

2. Name your Images

If you have clicked an image or grabbed it from a photo stock, it probably has a name such as IMG_8292 or shutterstock_34151 etc. Change the name which is relevant to your post. For example, if your blog is called FOODIE and you are writing about Easy Recipes then name your photo ‘Easy Recipe_FOODIE’ for the search engine to recognize the photo when searched by that title.

3. Open a Google Plus Page

4. Use Interesting Titles

Think about the articles which you have clicked up on lately. Chances are you were intrigued by its title. Your title should either be informative or creative for the potential reader to click on the link.

5. Share on Social Media

Last but not the least be sure to share it on all your Social Media. However, be sure to not post them on auto pilot. Take out a few minutes to form a creative and intriguing preview suitable for each Social Media platform. This motivates your audience/readers to follow you on more than one social media platform. Else where is the incentive if the same message is broadcasted web-wide?
