In case you are blogging, your primary goal is to attract readers and raise awareness. However, you are not the only writer on the market and even in your niche. That is why you need to know special tricks on how to draw attention to your content.
Why do you think that some blogs get thousands of unique visitors every day while you get only a few of the regulars on a daily basis? What is the secret of attracting more attention to your blog?
- Start with a Stunning Creative Title
You will not attract more users with a regular dull title. There must be an intrigue, something shocking or even controversial. Put yourself in the readers’ shoes and think of the titles that would motivate you to proceed to the blog itself.
You can try to gain a better understanding of the creative titles by examining those of the other successful bloggers. Go through their blogs and try to keep a record of what stood out for you and what seemed to be intriguing enough for you to go to a website. It works the same way with your readers. Think out of the box and do not be afraid to be provocative or controversial in it. People like it!
- You Can Post Your Blogs on the Social Networks
This way you will increase your presence and have more chances to attract new readers that otherwise will have no clue that you are there on the market. You can try creating an individual page on the social network through which you will inform your readers about updates on your blog or website. Followers of this page will be able to share or retweet your posts to share the information they found useful within their networks.
So, run a page on social networks to attract more users and enjoy new visitors on your web page!
- Invite Other Bloggers to Write Guest Posts for You
These bloggers that have their followers will inform them to check out their article on your blog. This invitation can be the first time these readers learn about you. Moreover, when you write for other blogs, you also expand the number of users on your one. They see your name and follow the links you leave once they realize that they like your style and need the information you can provide them with.
On top of that, guest posts will be like a whiff of fresh air to those who are already familiar with your expressions, perspectives, and thoughts. So, spice your blog up with posts written by fellow bloggers. Keep in mind not to invite your business rivals to write for you. Opt for those who share the same niche with you but do not compete with the ideas of your blog. And, of course, ask writers whose style is different from yours to create a guest post for your page: you will get to see readers’ response to a different style, and you will get to learn something new!
- Check the New Requirements for SE Optimization
Make sure that your blog meets all the requirements of the current content marketing and SEO. Check out what search engines expect you to have in your articles to be present on the first pages of search results.
The factors you should take into account include keywords, and key phrases, freshness, and originality of the content you post as well as the absence of any plagiarism. There are a lot of resources you can use when checking your texts on plagiarism as well as keywords and phrases. So, with the emergence of new technologies, you won’t spend too much time on fixing what needs to be fixed. However, do not overload your texts with keywords. Let readers not search engines be your primary focus. As time shows, texts developed specifically for machines are not interesting for readers. Therefore, be careful, yet do not underestimate the significance of SE optimization. Leaders of the SEO technologies often create special free courses to teach their users how to utilize their products. Take advantage of such courses and apply the knowledge you get there to let your blog benefit from it.
- Add More Links to Your Posts
You need links to analyze the information on what works to increase the number of unique readers and what does not as well as to track the activity of users on your website. Moreover, you need links to invite new readers to come and check your articles out. Some professionals claim that the more you add links, the higher your chances are to attract the new user. So add them whenever possible. Search engines will also notice you once you add more links and create a network of them at different resources.
To sum up, promotion of one’s blog and the process of attracting new users to it is not a one-day task. So, be prepared to invest time and effort in it. However, with our tips, you are likely to get recognition as a leading blogger of the niche sooner. Therefore, do not hesitate to put them to life and enjoy the positive changes in a number of readers that visit your blog on a regular basis.
