Three things that seriously increased traffic to my blog

Hey Lovers,

Happy Monday! (yuck!)

As we get back into the working week, I thought today I would share three things that help to increase the level of traffic my blog received!

Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog to never miss a post, follow my social accounts and as always leave comments below so we can interact and I can check out your blogs too!! ( I love a little blog stalk!)

# 1

So the first thing that hugely impacted my traffic was learning and focusing on SEO. This means Search engine optimisation. Basically, in simple terms this means how easy it is for my blog to be found on the internet. By making sure i’m writing about popular trending topics and using specific key words I increase my chances of being found. (Tagging helps too!)

#2

It may seem silly, and obvious but creating an instagram for my blog has had a giant impact on my blog growing. It acts as a taste tester for readers to understand what my blog is about, in a visual way. i’ve seen alot of people travel over from the link in my accounts bio to come see the full thing.

Lastly, the best thing I did for my traffic growth was linking my articles to Pinterest! I have had as many as 1.7K followers come view my blog, after seeing one post on Pinterest – CRAZY! So I absolutely recommend doing the same!

All my love,

How to find your blogging community

Hi Lovers,

I’m back again with some blogging advice.

To start off, NO I’m not your blogger with a 100,000 strong following but hey i’m someone that loves what they do, just like you! So here are some tips on what I have discovered about blogging.

I can’t tell you how many hours I have spent reading, commenting and trying to understand blogging….. alot of which just plain and simple does not work.

To find what really clicks with readers (no pun intended), is you need to give a variety of options. I will write blogs on travel, advice, fashion, life experiences and even came up with a series have called ‘ Basically Abroad’ which talks about my travel stories. I have found the blog posts that gain the most traffic are those that discuss blogging advice and those involving travel. After learning this I have made sure I allocate at least one or two posts on these topics a week. This really has helped me!

Another learning curve I had, And I know you won’t all like this… Is investing in your blog.

By this, I mean allowing yourself to commit in the way of presenting a professional website. I bought my theme off Creativemarket.com. On this site there are some very cheap and worthwhile themes, many of these are specifically made to adapt to mobile devices! Buying a theme has absolutely made me more committed, ait has also helped me to stand out from the crowd and really personalise my blog.

I have seen an 80% growth in my blog’s traffic since changing my theme, it also enables widgets which help increase traffic, clicks and encourages things such as subscriptions. I hope this helped lovers

(Let me know your tips and tricks too!!)

All my love,
