Traffic in blogging is defined as the headcount of people on your blog, we can also refer it as Visitors (Either Eisting Or New Ones) on your blog.
As we all known, the main thing needed in blogging is Traffic, Without traffic, you don’t get revenue from blogging.
To increase or boost your blog traffic is a great work, because you will need to do it day-by-day.
But as times goes on, you will stop it and get automatic traffic from Search Engines.
Recently, I released a post on how to start a blog.

Traffic is the headcount of people visiting your blog, this is different from the popular road traffic.
It is a useful term in blogging.
I mean a useful term that all bloggers knows, even a newbie that start blogging today will get the meaning that day.
Traffic?, When people ask me.
Malik, How Is Your Blog’s Traffic?
I do say “Hmmm…..”, i will tell them to use those websites that calculate other blog’s traffic like hypestat.com, you can easy get the amount of new visitors a blog get per day using hypestat.
It is free, it also tell you more about the website.
When your traffic increases then you are good, i said because it isn’t easy to get traffic.
Especially with new blogs because there is no backlinks, DA (Domain Authority), PA (Page Authoriry) , TR (Trust Rank), even the blog posts are yet to be crawl by the search engines.
That means the website cannot start ranking on search engines, so no traffic from search engines.
So the question is how will the kind of blog get traffic?
That a big question, it takes me a lot of time to think about it because i wonder how people are happy to create new blog.
I don’t mean you should be sad when you want to create a new blog!
But you should get ready for work, because you will need to build links to the websites, create social media coount for the blog, share posts on social media and others.
You will also need to submit your blog to search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yandex.

Why You Need Traffic For Your Blog?
I gave instances in the introduction to the post, there are many people, making money from blogging, i mean huge money.
Some when quit their other jobs and face only blogging.
And almost all of them are married, so they have wife and children at home.
How do they feed them?
That is when you will realize that people are making huge money from blogging.
Then if they aren’t making money, how do they feed?
You see them with cars, building mansions, buying new laptops, you even see them becoming more fatter than before.
That is money from blogging, it is easy to spend and it is somehow hard to earn but when you have traffic.
With me here are some reasons why you need traffic on your blog.
The reasons why you need traffic for your blog are:
- More Revenue – When you have the organic traffic on your blog, you make thousands per month fro blogging, you will even get more sales on your products.
- Recognition- Especially when you have your traffic from search engines, people will be keen to know the witch/wizard behind the blog.
After having the knowledge of what traffic means, the next is the way to get it.
I will share you the ways now.
How To Increase Your Blog Traffic For Free
Glad you are here, i will give you the best and the proven ways to increase your blog’s traffic for free.
I mean without paying a dime.
I give the importance of traffic in blogging before, Please if you don’t read that you can scroll back to read about it.
When you know the important then you will be more serious with it.
Now the best ways are:-
1. Optimize Your Contents
It is your Contents or posts are the main things people search for, so if they aren’t well written or they aren’t fully optimized what do you thing people will do?
They will leave immediately right?
Yes, they are going to do that, because the post isn’t helpful at all.
And also when they keep leaving your post as they login, that causes bounce rate.
What do i mean by bounce rate?
Bounce rate is the percentage of time people are using on your blog.
If you bounce rate is lesser than 50%, then it is good but if it is around 70% it is very bad.
Google won’t rank the kind of blog higher, because of the bounce rate.
The bounce rate is what google use to know if the post is helpful or not.
It works like this, For example, i login to your blog hoping to read how to increase blog traffic, but i saw how to make money online.
That is ridiculous right?
The first thing to do is that, i will leave the blog right?
So when more people are login to the post and are doing the same thing, the bounce rate will keep increasing unless you edit the post.
There are ways to know if a content is fully optimized, ask me how?
An optimized content must follow all this guidelines.
- It must have a catchy post title
- Duplicate content is not allowed
- The content must be very long the minimum of 500words and interesting, so as to make people stay long.
- It must contain images, at time video and infographics.
- It must follow all the On Page SEO Techniques.
- Don’t forget to interlink with old posts.
When you posts are having all the guidelines above, then we can refer to it as optimized contents.
After optimizing your contents when people come to read one, and you share another they won’t hesitate to read it because the first one is really helpful.
If you can’t optimize your contents, it is not good because without optimized contents, No rankings!
And also make sure you update your blog regularly so that google can crawl and index faster.
2. Share Your Posts On Social Media And Forums
Social Media are websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.
Social Media being the first place you target audiences, traffic and buyers.
With social media you can get your pages and posts promoted after paying small money.
You are also allowed to share your posts to other groups.
Example of social media where you can share your posts are;
The main problem in sharing posts on social media is that your account get blocked at times.
maybe due to sharing of posts to groups not related to your niche or breaking the groups rules.
After you’ve joined a group make sure you real the rules to avoid being blocked from sharing posts to groups on your facebook account.
If you can follow all the group rules on how to share links, am very sure you get more traffic.
Social media is one of the most rated way to increase blog’s traffic and get connected to more people, if you share a post to a group, if the post is helpful to other also.
They can share on their timeline or on their own page.
Another thing about social media is that it also allow you to tag people with the post, you can tag your friends and family with your posts to get more likes, comments and shares.
When you share your posts, you get something called Social Signals.
According to studies: Social signal is one of the ranking factors on google search engines, When google noticed that your post got many social signals google will give the post a trial by placing on the front page.
So if they realized that the bounce rate and everything is normal, then google will leave it on the first page and you will keep getting your free organic traffic.
A forum is an area where users share thoughts, ideas, or help by posting text messages. Forums are different from chat because it is almost never live and can be read at any time.
When sharing a post to forums, you get two things, the two things are backlinks and traffic, so there are some forums you can keep sharing your posts too.
Don’t spam the forum because your post will be reviewed by moderators and if they detect any spam link, they will remove the post from their forum, so post wisely.
Most of the forums gives Nofollow Link, It’s rare to see a forum giving Dofollow Link.
If you have any forum giving Dofollow link, you will observe that bloggers use to spam the forum.
It’s one of the reason why forums don’t give Dofollow, and another reason is because In SEO, The Number Of Blogs Your Blog is linking to, most not be much than Sites Linking To Your Blog.
Example Of Forums Where You can share your ideas are;
Note: You should put your posts in forums related to your niche, or you post in a category related your niche. The reason is because of backlinks.
