3 Tactics That Increased The Blog Traffic Growth By Nearly 2,000 Visitors In One Month

This post on traffic growth was written by Fabrizio Van Marciano and Samantha Wright.

In the month of June, if you remember from our traffic and income report we reported 8,845 visits, whilst in the month of July we reported 10,662 visits. I mistakenly changed our traffic strategy in August which saw us increase to 11,406 visits, still a good traffic growth rate nevertheless, but not as much as July’s.

So how did we increase the traffic growth to the blog by almost 2,000 new visitors?

Today Samantha and I would like to share with you the very traffic building strategy that we used to get a growth of 1,817 visits in a single month to the Magnet4Marketing blog, this strategy works and more ever, we believe that anyone can implement this method into their own marketing or traffic growth strategy.

Traffic Growth

Here’s what we did.

Traffic Growth Strategy #1 – Do more guest posting

Admittedly we’ve been neglecting guest writing for a few months and not doing as much as we could have which proved deadly, until the month of July where upon we posted a little over a dozen guest posts to some of our top favorite niche related blogs. Not only did this help to increase traffic growth to the blog immensely but we also saw the bounce rate reduced drastically as well.

Traffic Growth Strategy #2 – Focus on creating more niche content

One other essential areas we concentrated a lot more on throughout July was to create more niche related content, in which case for us it’s online marketing, small business marketing, and of course blogging tips.

So for you guys, it’s essential to remember the main reasons as to why readers come to your blog, they come to read quality and resourceful content that will help them solve problems, because they want to hear what you have to say or think about specific topics, subject matters, products and services etc. They don’t come to your blog to read about how you think your s&*t smells sweeter than most (pardon the expression)!

It’s ok to create off-topic posts now and again; it’s OK to rant occasionally about you, you, and you! It’s even ok to have the very occasional controversial post. But just ensure that at the same time you create top quality, real thought provoking niche related, problem solving content, and this will serve your blog traffic growth well as it did for us in June.

Traffic Growth Strategy #3 – Increase activity on online forums

There are two main forums that Samantha and I are currently active on, digital point forums and the Warrior forum both of which are great internet marketing forums by the way.

By actively increasing our activities on both these sites on a daily basis, engaging with other online marketers, bloggers etc we were able to start our own discussions, ask questions whilst also helping others out with their own dilemmas.

Forums are absolutely valuable to a blogger looking to build authority in their niche, and this has effectively also helped to increase the traffic growth to the blog.

The rest of the tactics that we used such as using social media, SEO etc we carried on as per usual, but the above three we certainly paid more attention to. Consider picking out three of your own strategies that produces the best traffic growth results for you, and increase your activity on those strategies.

Alternatively consider doing more guest-writing, creating better niche focused content and engaging deeper in online forums and you too can see huge growths in your blog’s traffic. Best of luck.
