    You have a new blog but you don’t have traffic, that is, people don’t visit your blog to check out and read your blog posts? don’t worry – after reading this post and following my guidelines, you will notice positive changes in your blog. Blogs without readership (traffic) will eventually fail. Statistics show that about 95% of newly created blogs fail due to lack of traffic. Quickly, here are my recommended sure and solid ways to gain traffic to your new blog.

    1. SUBMIT AND OPTIMIZE YOUR BLOG FOR SEARCH ENGINES:

    Immediately you finish building your blog, the next thing is to submit your blog to search engines for indexing so that your blog can be found online. There are many search engines out there but the best ones are Google and Bing. To submit your blog to Google and to submit your blog to Bing After your search engine submission, you need to optimise your blog for search engine. This is known as search engine optimisation (SEO). Search engines are the number one source of passive traffic for blogs/websites. So, you need to learn SEO (google is your friend) and apply it to your blog for better ranking in google, bing and other search engines.

    2. SOCIAL MEDIA PROMOTION:

    Blogs hardly survive these days without the social media especially Facebook and Twitter. After making a post on your blog, you must share your blog post on your social media profiles, groups and pages e.g Facebook and Twitter profile, Facebook page, e.t.c). But first, you need to build a social media presence. To do this, you need to have as many friends as possible and invite people to your Facebook page. whenever you share your blog post on your social media profile, it is only your friends that can see it unless you pay a certain fee to promote the posts. So, the more friends you make, the more people that will see your blog posts


    3. ORIGINAL CONTENTS:

    Please, read this carefully. If you do not post original contents on your blog, then your blog must fail because google and bing (the biggest search engines ) will stop indexing your blog and people will hardly visit your blog. Content is king – you must have come across that expression before and that is exactly how it is. If you are involved in “copy and paste”, I’m sorry for you because your blog will not amount to anything. Blogging is a serious business.If you copy any content from another blog, make sure you edit it pretty good in such a way that google’s highly sophisticated programs won’t be able to detect that you copied the content from somewhere and you can add a link to the original source. Also, make sure your blog posts are long. Research shows that longer articles get better ranking and more shares.

    4. PUBLISH MORE CONTENT:

    If you want to rank higher and gain more visitors to your blog, you have to create and publish more contents on your blog daily or regularly. This makes search engines crawl and index your blog posts frequently thereby increasing your ranking. Also, it makes your blog readers always return to check out your latest blog posts. Nobody will be willing to return to a blog where they keep seeing the same thing every day. Try to post new contents daily (every day) or weekly (every week) depending on your time.

    5. GUEST BLOGGING:

    You can also gain traffic to your new blog via guest blogging. Guest blogging is when you contact other bloggers in your blogging niche and send them a good post to make on their blog on your behalf. The blog post you send to them must contain your blog URL (www . yourblog .com) and you must be acknowledged as the blog post owner. Whenever their blog visitors, read the post and likes it, they can click on your URL and visit your own blog to check it out for more interesting stuff. This way, you have gained traffic to your blog.

    6. CONTENT SUBMISSION:

    Another sure way to gain traffic to your new blog is by submitting some of your articles/posts to some article submission sites like Ezine articles and some blogging communities like Bizsugar, and Bokube. Make sure you add a link to your own blog in every content you submit.

    Blog sites are one of the most powerful provider of influence because of its simple usage and no need to have programming language in order to use the site to the fullest.

    7. Comment on other Blogs/Websites
    Instead of just building a relationship with the readers of your blog, you can also do so with readers of other blogs within your niche—and even the owners of these blogs by regularly contributing to their website (valuable comments).
    Most blogs and websites will allow you to leave your link within valuable comments, as long as you are not spamming their platform.
    If you are a popular commenter, you can easily invite the other commenters to check out your blog or occasionally share some of your great content with them

    8. Word of Mouth/Offline Promo
    Do you have promo flyers for your website/blog? Why don’t you give some to your friends to distribute at their universities, colleges or place of worship for you? You can also do this and you will be amazed as to the number of people who will follow the flyers/leaflets to your blog/website.
    Even if you do not have a promo leaflet or flyer, you can tell people about your blog/website during conversations and if you are able to tell 10 different people each week to visit your blog that will be 40 people in a month…

    Anytime you are attending an event, be prepared to promote your blog out there for FREE…
