If you have nobody visiting your blog, your online business is like a shop in a dark. Nobody knows it’s there and nobody is coming in to browse. So I have decided to quickly share some tips on how to grow your traffic steadily.
Here are 7 quick and easy ways to boost your blog traffic.
- Tag Your Keywords
Applying proper tags to your keywords will increase blog traffic because it’s how search engines scan your pages. Ensure you insert your keywords into you title tags, header tags and meta tags. Also use alt tags to provide a text description of a graphic or photo.

Social networks can be very effective to boost blog traffic. Example, Facebook is one of the major players in the industry and people are using it on a daily basis. You too can use FB to get traffic to your site for free. What you do is you Join Facebook and go find a group related to your niche; ‘how to lose weight after childbirth, how to ask for forgiveness for messing up, how to get free loans without paying back, etc’ you get the idea… then start posting useful and valuable tips on how to solve the problems that these people have. One word of caution however, don’t spam the group!
