Blogging without traffic, can not be imagine for long time.
I hope you agree with me.
Another thing, blogging without SEO is just impossible.
I know, what you are thinking? It is also right.
But, I will prove it wrong, even I was thinking the same, but the way I have used to drive traffic to my new blog.
Which will blow your mind.
Yes, which will change the way you think about driving traffic to blog.
Well, I am not saying don’t use SEO, use it but you need to pay attention here too, I mean other sources of traffic, see those days gone when you could see your major source of traffic only Search engines, now a days you can see the fastest growing blog Upworthy getting traffic only 2.3% from search engines and rest of traffic come from other sources.
See, there are many sources like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Reddit, Digg, Blog Directories, E-mail list, Scoop.it, Visual.ly, Pinterest, Instagram etc.
But, I have used only one social media “Facebook” to drive traffic to my blog.
Here is exactly, what I did?
I Create Blog on Education Niche-
Well, after blogging more than few years, I have learn lot of things in blogging, so I decided to create a niche blog on GATE 2015.
I got domain name after research as well as thinking for long time blogging, as a Blogger I always think about long time.
I have created the blog, but did not have much idea to get traffic other than SEO and from social medias too.
After Writing 10 High Quality Articles Traffic “Nothing”-
Well, I have started writing articles on high volume search, till two to three months but no positive result.
But, I know I can get traffic, but I need to find out the right media.
Even then I did not stop. I write articles but not much often, sometimes. yes article were quite in depth as well as details indeed.
Even then no positive result.
I Wanted to Find Something Different-
I realized that, the SEO game change, I need to concentrate more on this.
Then, I start thinking about social medias to drive traffic, but It was just 50 to 100 visitors per day on overage after using this trick.
Well, better, but I was not happy with it.
Facebook Come to My Mind-
Now, I think about Facebook.
I am sure, if I can use Facebook proper way, then I am sure I could drive more traffic to my blog.
I find out the option TAG, this option let me drive good traffic, I knew it.
But, I wanted to make sure about it.
Just Think What to Write-
Well, because my blog was on GATE 2015 niche, that’s why I have choose to write an article on “PSU’s Going to Hire through GATE 2015”.
I knew it.
Almost all students those will appear in GATE 2015, they must wanted to know companies will hire through GATE 2015.
You just can not believe, what happen to my stats?
I have added the image below with likes as well as traffic stats-
Then Use the Old Method to Get Traffic-
Its time to know the real cine behind this.
I am going to tell you, what I did ?
I did not do anything special, I just share the article on my wall and Tag few of my friends those are going to appear in GATE 2015.
I knew they are going to read the article and it worked, after then I just started writing dashing article and got targeted traffic on my blog.
It Gets Me Average 50 Likes Per Blog Post-
If you will see professional blogger stats.
They also got 20 to 100 likes each blog post, but I did it with just a new blog with having only few blog posts and absolutely no e-mail list, no followers at all.
Let me tell you few things happened after that, I got many messages from students those will appear in GATE 2015 as well as in GATE 2016, they wanted to know the study plan for GATE and I got an Idea from them for my next blog post.
This way can help you to get idea too for your next blog post and readers are already waiting for the blog post.
This is the real beauty of social media and I must say “blogging”
Facebook having more than 1 billion users, but I don’t want that much, I think neither you, you just need to concentrate on certain niche and try to get people on your blog, I mean you need targeted readers.
But, remember you must write great quality as well as valuable content in your blog post to get more likes for long time, otherwise you may get likes for first time, but later you will loose it.
One more thing, don’t try to concentrate on many medias, try to concentrate on one and then go for another one, it will help you to focus on one media and which would be better.
