Blogging is a really fun way to make a living…until you face this issue. How do you get more traffic?
If you’re just starting out blogging or have been blogging for a while and asked yourself:
“How do I get more traffic? I’m so lost!”
So you have a blog and want more traffic? Well, the best of the best kind of bloggers have been exactly where you are and they’ve been through what you are going through.
So, here are 7 Amazing bloggers who are now pretty big, but here is what they did to grow their traffic when their blogs were starting out:
1 0-40,000 page views in 2 months – Allison of LooksLikeHappy.com
Pinterest has played a huge role in her blog growth:
- I’ve joined 22 Tribes and 53 group boards.I’ve been kicked off of 1 group board, probably because it looks like I don’t re-pin other peoples’ stuff. I use Tailwind so I do repin, but it may not be *immediate* because Tailwind is a Pin scheduler and I try to schedule two weeks of Pins at a time. My husband freaked out thinking this was the Worst Thing Ever, but I’m ok because there are a gazillion group boards and I know I repin a ton of stuff. Honor system….
- We are up to almost 700 followers on Pinterest.They can see our 60+ boards that have over…15,000 Pins (see? I repin A LOT!)
- And finally, since we all know Pinterest is the Key to Blog Success, we have reached 5,600,000 (that’s 5.6 MILLION) monthly viewers on Pinterest. In two months.

Build More Content When Starting Out:
In order for you to keep getting traffic you need to create content. I’m not telling you to churn out two posts a day. But I will tell you the more content you have the more likely you are to be found. The way a search engine works, like Google, is that it crawls a web page to see what it writes about. The more you have on your site, the more it can crawl your page and display you as a result when people search for terms related to your posts. Think about it this way, the more you know about a friend, the more likely you are to bring them up in conversation. The same goes for search engines.

3. 400-40,000 Page Views in One Month – Elna Of TwinsMommy.com
Open your blog up to multiple contributors:
The biggest impact for increasing my blog traffic is making this a guest blog where bloggers can submit their blog posts. The advantage of having a multi-author site is that you can create content faster.
And I know for a fact that the more content you can create in a set amount of timegrows your blog traffic. I’ve proven it multiple times on Twins Mommy and with my other blogs.

Join Facebook Groups In Your Niche:
I am in at least 30 groups for social media, traffic, ecommerce stores, bloggers, engagement, etc. Most of the groups I’m most active in are full of bloggers, who are my target audience so I tend to see some nice traffic on the days I’m active.

5. 236,000 Page Views in 2 Weeks – Jessica Of JessicaAutumn.com
Invest In Proper Training:
You have two options as a blogger. Go the cheapest way possible and learn everything yourself which will take lots of time (could even be a year or two). Or you can invest in good training and books to learn from other bloggers that had to take the time to learn what it takes to be a big-time blogger. I have purchased two courses and multiple books. You can learn more about both courses here (they are offered in a bundle).

Content Is Key
I added a lot of really great content to my blog this month. Looking back at my old drafts, I could definitely tell a difference in the quality of information I was putting out.
This time around I focused a lot on giving my audience what they wanted, which meant looking through my Pinterest analytics to see what my followers were saving. I was able to get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, which I definitely think is reflected in my page views.
