Here are some ways of capturing that much-needed traffic for your blog:

1. Fresh Content

Getting free traffic for your website can be achieved with the use of Google. When people search something in any search engine, they will most likely just visit the websites that are on the first page of the search engine. You can put your blog to a better rank by frequently updating its contents.

More visitors to your website can become loyal followers if your content is informative. The question is how to make them visit your site. You can do this by making sure that the titles of these articles are captivating. This will make your visitors want to read your blog.

3. Know Your Audience

You will get more free website traffic by understanding your target audience. Your blog must have a clear theme so that you will know who your target market it. Your content must cater to the needs of your audience. If you wish to target seniors, topics like old age wellness and life after retirement are likely to appeal to them as opposed to sports and latest tech gadgets.

4. Include Keyword

Earlier, it was mentioned that you can use search engines to get free traffic. People will use keywords when they are looking for something in search engines, which is why you have to include it in your website’s content.

Doing this will help search engines understand what your website is about. As a rule, you have to include the keyword in the title and in the 1st or 2nd paragraph of your article.

A powerful keyword research tool will help you in finding great keywords.

5. Images and Videos

Images and videos are as important as the content and its title. Studies show that articles with photos are more attractive than ones that do not carry any images.

Including keywords in the picture will boost your website’s visibility in the internet. Linking YouTube videos will also drive traffic to your website. But you can boost the message of the video by supplementing it with content.

6. Guest Blogging

You should also volunteer to write for other websites that cater to your target audience. Doing this will increase your traffic since these websites already have their own audience. These audiences will turn to your website for more information.

You can also ask other bloggers to write for your website. Not only will they give fresh content to your website, they can also bring with them their own audience, who also turn to your website for additional information.

You should interview experts and publish their insight in your website. This will make your website stand out as people will be interested to hear what the expert has to say about your chosen niche.

This will also boost your website’s reputation as a credible source of information, and increase traffic. It is also very likely that your resource person will share the content in their own social media.

More people will visit your website if you promote it through social media. You have to do this each time that you create a new blog.

Free website traffic can be achieved by taking time to nurture your website’s visitors. In return, they will endorse your services and your products in their own social media accounts.

You can make it easier for them by putting some buttons that allow them to share it in social media. You should also retweet past contents so that new followers of your website can read old articles.

Retaining existing followers is as important as getting new ones. You must be available to attend to their needs by responding to feedback.

  1. Decent list of things to consider when building a website on how to drive traffic. For me the number 1 option is writing good quality unique content.  If you continue on a schedule of providing decent content you will be found by the search engines and get visitors and you will keep those visitors coming back if you keep up the schedule. Its a lot of work but provides the best route to gaining traffic that you can use.

  3. I enjoyed reading this post, since it is very informative. I have a website myself but I am struggling having good traffic, but I saw in one of those points that having a guest write can help. I will try that out, since every week I have fresh content, and I put my keyword in the 1st paragraph and also in the last one.

    You agree with putting the keyword in the last paragraph?

  5. Hi Christine,

    This article contains really valuable information! As a newbie blogger, I have to say that I struggle quite a lot with driving traffic to my site. However, after reading all that information, I’ve found a couple of suggestions that will certainly help me. One of them is Guest Blogging, concerning which I have a question – how does it work? What I mean by that is – how do I know if a site searches for someone to write for them and vice versa, how can I let people know that I search someone to write on my site?

    Thank you in advance,Nick.
