Traffic is every blog’s must have to increase income and as well build up following.
Here am sharing with you The One-Exact Strategy I used to get a huge 4,175 page views in a day.
When I started Blogging, I used to get at about 20 page views daily “ON A GOOD DAY” I was never happy about this result compared to the Quality of my Contents.
Everyone experienced that at one time of their blogging career.
Is there no one reading my blog posts? I would ask myself. Little did I know I was missing something very Important which if I knew, could help bring in 5,000+ page views daily and as well build my audience.
Its certain you have witnessed this too ; that’s why I have created this post to help you replicate thesame strategy I used in achieving this.
When I say 4,175 page views, kindly note that I don’t mean my total page views for that day. It’s from this 1-strategy am about to show you here alone.
But before then, let me share a little fact with you
Through my Blogging Career, I never came to know about this strategy until few weeks back;
What’s this Fact?
There’s one rookie mistake most bloggers make; the mistake of not promoting other bloggers or the feeling that they don’t need to promote other blogs due to one reason or the other, if you are among then stop it immediately.
I’m going to share why with you shortly why you must promote other bloggers.
If you ever want to build Audience and huge followers for your blog it’s through other blogs. How true is this?
Now pay attention;
The Magic in Promoting other Bloggers Plus How I pulled 4,175 Page Views doing it and How I’m Repeating thesame steps.
When you have less followers and less traffic on your blog, check an influencer’s blog. Do these three things
1. Read His Recent Blog Post
2. Leave Comments
3. Tweet it
I would break this three down for you to understand what I really mean and the Tips to effectively do it but before then;
Who is an Influencer?
An influencer Is that one blogger who tend to be in the same niche with you (He publishes similar articles as you do) but one thing makes him more diferent, what is that? He gets more followers and Traffic, He has been in the journey for so long and tend to know more about the game.
Am sure you already know influencers in your niche if not, its very easy, just look around for a famous Blogger in the same niche (he’s an Influencer). Easy right?
#1 The Power of Blog Commenting
Now that you’ve identified that influencer in your niche, it’s time to connect with him or her which is through Blog Commenting. This works till date infact that’s what every professional blogger did to increase his or her Audience.
What kind of comments should you leave?
Leave the below comments and you ruin everything
- Nice Post
- Great Article
- Thanks for sharing
- Loved the Post
The comments above are useless and spam. Why? It shows you didn’t read the post and all you came for was to get the link to your Blog.
So how do you leave comments that influencers love and that do not look as if you are there for spam or just to get a link to your blog? In a moment you are going to learn how.
The only way to leave such comments is to actually read the Post. Now one mistake you do is you are not ready to skim through the whole of that post, if you don’t then sorry I disappointed you this time, there’s no way you are going to leave a thoughtful comment without reading the Post.
If you are a Blogger who wants to build relationship with other bloggers you need to develop first the habit of reading alot because when you read the post you have idea of what it’s all about then you can leave your Opinion in the Comment Box.
Now I’m going to show you how to leave comments that gets your influencer and his followers pondering
Let me introduce you to “Mini Guest Posting” I got to know about this from a great blogger Chris DeeWaard
Ever heard of Guest Posting? Am sure you have, but am not talking about Guest Posting this time but “Mini Guest Posting”
Mini Guest Posts are those comments you leave that tend to standout among other comments on a blog.
These comments are based on your opinions on the post; it shows you actually read the Post and contains about 4-5 paragraphs
These are the kind of comments that influencers would want to approve immediately because of three things
- It shows them you took time to read the post.
- You are adding value to the post
- You share your experience or opinions with their readers
This way you not only attract the Influencer’s attention but the readers too, they would love to click on the link to your blog to see other things you have to offer for them just because of that comment you’ve made on the blog.
When you do this; you’ve taken the first step.
This is just the power of blog commenting and the first step you should take.This brings us down to the second step which is the tweeting or sharing aspect.
#2 What is behind tweeting an Influencer’s article?
When you leave comments, you get noticed by influencers and readers, but when you take the extra step to tweeting that post on your Twitter handle, you catch the influencer’s attention the more.
[clickToTweet tweet=”Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language” quote=”Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language”]
Now let me show you something about Twitter and tweeting (the magic it does)
When you tweet a post from a blog there’s always a “via username” attached to that tweet, what it does is mention the blog owner of that tweet.
So when you tweet his or her article, he or she gets notified. it gives him more reason to appreciate by
- Either tweeting your post to his huge followers
- Retweeting your articles
- Or Mentioning you in his or her next post
This way you get three things
- More traffic to your Blog
- More Exposure
- More Brand Mentions
Now I saved the best for the Last;
You need to pay attention in this aspect am about to share with you
#3 Take an Extra Step: Tap into the Readers
You don’t have to stop on this one influencer; he gets load of comments; now you need to click through each of those comments and also repeat the step 1 and 2.
By doing this, you get to meet with this influencers’ readers and build relationship through reading their posts, commenting and sharing; many in turn would do the same and that means more traffic for you, more relationship with them and their readers, more brand mentions, more audience and more connection.
When you leave comments on each of this blogs, you not only get traffic and others I mentioned above but as well get targeted followers to your blog as well.
Two more Mistakes you should avoid
- Don’t feel you’ve gotten to the level where you feel promoting other bloggers is useless, I know of influential bloggers such as Donna Merril, Ryan Biddulph etc. with huge following who still regard promoting others as one of the best ways to stay connected in the blogosphere.
- Don’t go all for the purpose of driving traffic; go with the sole aim of adding value, Add More Value and building relationship
This is what professionals use to build followers, when you discover what works for you continue repeating thesame step and expect results.
After reading this, you may want to develop the Habit of promoting other bloggers and get results.
Now this is the strategy you are using
1. Read the Post (Always read first)
2. Comment, Leave even more comments
4. Share (tweet more)
I recommend you put down the list of those sites you’ve commented on in an excel spreadsheet, you can title it “Blogs to Visit” or if possible subscribe to get their next blog posts.
Didn’t I tell you?
That was the exact strategy I used to Pull 4,157 page views in a day. At the end of this post, all I could say is its a WIN WIN!
Yes, we both win.
Now over to you;
