I know that your main reason for starting a blog is not to blog to yourself. The joy of a blogger is tied to the number of visitors that come to your blog every day just to see the latest updates. Not just a one-time visitor, but the type that comes over and over again. And for your blog to gain a high search rank, you need to gain more visitors daily. We also need to gain more visitors so that we can earn from our blog. I hope I’m making good sense here.
We need to gain more visitors to our blog daily to make more money. We need to engage readers on our blog daily. How can I promote my blog? How can I engage a minimum of 1,000 visitors on my blog daily? There is no need to have a panic attack over this, that’s the reason for this post. We’ll tackle this question with some good tips we’ll be listing on this blog post today on how you can gain more visitors to your blog.
Here we go. Let’s get started! Read till the end.
tIPS ON HOW TO GAIN MORE VISITORS ON YOUR BLOG – ENGAGE MORE READERS DAILY
TIP #1: PUBLISH MORE ARTICLES DAILY
Don’t be a weekly type of blogger, you wouldn’t want to bore your visitors with old articles on your blog. You need to engage your readers with new posts every day.
A research from Hubspot has shown that businesses that publish 16+ blog posts monthly get 3.5 times more traffic and 4.5 times more leads than businesses that publish between 0 – 5 blog posts monthly.Startbloggingonline.com
TIP #2: COMMENT ON OTHER PEOPLE’S BLOG
Just like karma, if you want to gain more readers on your blog, you need to know how to say something nice to other blogger’s blog post. Once in a while, visit other bloggers that have a similar niche with yours and say something nice.
TIP #3: BLOG ABOUT OTHER BLOGGER’S BLOG
You can review other blogger’s blog on your blog and in each review, post a link to their blog post you are reviewing. If you copy some content from other blogs (even if it’s not verbatim), you can reference where you got them. Here is why you should do so. Anytime you publish a new article on a blog hosted with WordPress, it gives you an option to enable comments and trackbacks; a “trackback” is an automatic notification sent to any website you link to, allowing your link to be featured in their comments section as well if approved – Startbloggingonline.com. If you link to top blogs that have a similar niche with yours, it gives your blog a chance of being featured on theirs which will eventually lead to more visitors.
tIP #4: NOTIFY YOUR READERS WHEN YOU PUBLISH POSTS
You can notify your readers that you have a new post through different methods such as a mailing list or through social media. You can create a popup message on your blog, telling your visitors to subscribe to your blog or follow your blog on social media.
TIP #5: PROMOTE YOUR BLOG ON SOCIAL MEDIA
You can not reach out to all visitors. So you need a little hand, to force your blog into their way in other for you to reach out to them. This can be done by running social media ad campaigns on your blog. Get the best, most interesting, most engaging post and run campaigns on them. An eyeopener for you below:

TIP #6: DON’T EVER STOP WRITING GOOD CONTENT – aLLOW YOUR READERS TO CAMPAIGN FOR YOU
Your readers are smart and when you write good content, they know. When you write a bad one, they also know. So don’t give up posting good contents on your blog just because you have little visitors on it. Keep doing your best and perfecting yourself, and your blog will grow. One good known fact is this, 98% of blog readers are likely to refer good content to others on social media. And when they share your content, they’re already campaigning for you.
TIP #7: ORGANIZE YOUR BLOG PROPERLY
There are some people who are scared of long blog posts (for example, me). Even though your blog has to be long, make sure you organize it with catchy subheadings. Good headings and subheadings will force readers to look into the paragraph following it and even engage them more.
TIP #8: DON’T CHASE THEM AWAY, KEEP THEM COMING BACK FOR MORE
Try your best not to chase away readers from your blog. Just like an interesting series telenovela keeps you coming back for more day by day, that’s how you should keep your readers coming back for more. Let one blog post lure them to read another blog post, that’s how you do it. You need to be creative in order for you to engage more readers.
TIP #9: DO GIVEAWAYS TO APPRECIATE READERS FOR THEIR TIME
There’s no person in the world who doesn’t like an undeserved favour. But for the case of your visitors its different because they deserve it. A giveaway is a little way to show appreciation to your readers for their time on your blog. It doesn’t have to be big, just a little token and your readers will deeply appreciate it. And for your act of kindness, they’ll reward you back with more visitors and social shares.
Your visitors are the pride of your blog, and without visitors your blog is valueless. The number of visitors shows the worth of your blog. For you to have gain search/page ranks, you need more visitors. For people to patronize your blog for ad, you need more visitors. Follow these tips strictly and you’ll see your blog growing intentionally.
