We all started blogging for different reasons well known to us but mainly because we you want to share your thoughts with a larger audience.
Building a blog traffic for you to stand out of the fast growing number of bloggers is one of the biggest challenges one can face not only for beginners. Writing posts for your blog can be pretty easy but writing ain’t enough as I bet you don’t wish to be talking to yourself.
This post will guide you on ways of building a high traffic for your blog to stand out.
1. OPTIMIZE YOUR CONTENT FOR SEARCH ENGINES
You might be lucky enough to be writing killer posts for your blog but of what use will it be if to you if your target audience cannot be able to find them through search. Optimizing your content is key to building your blog traffic. Therefore, you ought to optimize your content and improve your blog ranking on search engines.
Ways of optimizing your content :
The blog title should be as specific as possible. This will give your readers a clear overview of what your post is about and what to expect from it. You will also need to add keywords to your post title and also ensure you evenly distribute them on your content.
You also have to write a metadescription of your post and also ensure keywords are included in it.
I know working on all these can seem overwhelming but with YOAST Seo plugin, everything has been simplified for you. It will give you a summary of everything you need to add inorder for your content to be optimized for search engines.

2.MAKE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS.
As of 2019,we all know that there is a huge number of social media users and as time goes by, the number is expected to grow. I think this explains the opportunity that your blog can have if marketed on various social media platforms.
Ensure to create accounts with several platforms like pintrest, facebook, twitter, mix, tumblr,and many others. On top of that, be sure to add your bio and a link to your blog for the appropriate audience to have an easy access to your site.
Moreover, you have to ensure that you add social media sharing buttons on your blog. This will make it easy for your readers to share your blogs to their platforms.

3.BIULD AN EMAIL LIST FOR YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE.
Always try to capture the email address of your site visitors every time a reader visits your blog for the first time. This will come a long way in notifying them of your new post through newsletters.
You can do this by adding a subscription form to the sidebar of your blog. This will enable your readers join your email list to get notifications.

IN CONCLUSION.
blogging is certainly not an overnight success. we at times make these wild long steps about blogging but in the long run it comes to simple steps and if you take them into consideration, you will have success.

    I think that optimising your content for the search engines is the number one way of getting organic traffic to your blog. We all know that the organic traffic is the one that monetizes best, so all our efforts should be put into SEO.

    I actually tried switching to self-hosting for the sake of having more control (such as plugins) but it totally went south for me. So far, social media has been keeping things running strong!
