Getting traffic in a Blog is not a doddle. As per the research, 95% blog fails due to lack of readership. In starting when I started to write a blog I failed so many times, there are very few visitors comes to my blog. Almost you can say I was a failure. But there is a proverb “failure is the pillar of success”. I just got concluded it when I started research over the internet and after so many testing got the proven method to rank a blog and attract traffic.
Below are some vital points which will help any blogger:
Post longer with unique content
Mostly the search engine Google gives priority to longer, unique and comprehensive blog. From the analysis of Google, Bing, and Yahoo, I found that content more than 2000 words give more rank rather than fewer words. The blog/article which is very comprehensive over 8,000 words attracts more visitors to the blog/article.
Post More Articles
Bloggers mostly ignore this so that they fail to get proper rank. One of the most efficient and best methods is to post more blog frequently (Who post 20+ blog monthly will get 4 to 5 times more traffic from those who publish between 0 – 10 blog posts monthly.)
With taking care of long content if a blogger increase the frequency of blogging in each week then definitely they can see the difference between previous traffic to present traffic.
Optimize your Blog in terms of SEO
Who having the sound knowledge of Search Engine Optimization can give the best ranking to a blog by proper analysis and optimization of a keyword.So every blogger should have knowledge of SEO Technique.
