4 Tips To Get More Traffic By Blogging Less

Get More Traffic By Blogging LessThere are bloggers who use to blog seven times per week, and few of them only blog once a week.

And you know what? Their traffic has gone up.

Some of them went from 800,000 visitors a month all the way up to 1.6 million visitors a month, in less than a year.

How To Get More Traffic By Blogging Less

So how’d you get this big traffic growth? Just blog less. Today we shall share with you how you can grow your traffic by blogging less.

More Content Does Not Mean More Traffic

Here’s is a thing that I learned about blogging. It’s not about how much content you’re producing.

Yes, the more text you have, the more keywords, the more pages that can rank in Google.

But here’s the thing that most people don’t tell you.

Just because you write more content, it doesn’t mean that you’re gonna get more traffic.

More content doesn’t mean that Google’s magically gonna place you at the top of search rankings.

You have to promote that content too.

Spend More Time On Content Promotion Than Content Creation

If you wrote one article every single day, how much time would you have to promote your articles?

I don’t know about you, but probably little to none.

Sure, if you have a huge marketing team, you can spend a ton of time on promotion.

But if you yourself are the single person blogging, and you spend two, three, four, or five hours a day blogging, you’re going to be burned out.

You will not be able to market your content, you’re just going to be like, alright I wrote it, now it’s up, let’s see how much traffic it gets.

If someone posts his blog post on Tuesdays, you’ll see that there’s huge spikes every Tuesday.

Why is this?

Because that blogger releases a blog post on Tuesdays.

Now sometimes he may change it to Mondays, sometimes he may do Wednesdays, but in general, he is blogging once a week.

And when someone is blogging once a week, and is getting so much more traffic, is because he is spending more time marketing his content than writing it.

So here’s the process on how you can get more traffic by blogging less.

Send Out Emails

The first thing we recommend to you, is to send out emails.

If you look at the successful bloggers, you will see every time they release a blog post,
they send out emails to their whole list, letting them know their blog post has just come out and how it can help them.

This is one of the easiest ways they get more traffic.

If they send out an email seven times a week because they blog daily, people will blame them for spamming.

But now that you blog less, not only are you able to email your list, but people are appreciative too.

Your subscriber will thank you for sending the email.

If you don’t know how to collect emails, use a free tool called HelloBar.com

You can collect emails from your website, and then every time you have a blog post, you can notify every single one of those email list members, hey, my new blog post is up.

And just don’t send a simple email like, hey John, check this out, this is my latest blog post.

Send a customized email, put in the subject line the name of your blog post, and your email to the people should go over what you discuss in the article, how it can help them,
and where they can check it out.

Use Subscribers.com

The second tip I have for you, is to use Subscribers.com.

Subscribers is a push notification software. It’s free, there’s no premium plans, it’s just fully free.

And what it does is when someone’s coming to your website from a browser, whether it’s Chrome, Safari, Firefox, it allows them to subscribe to your blog using browser notifications.

Then whenever you release a blog post, using Subscribers, you can send them a message letting them all know that your blog post has come out, and through their browser, they’ll get a notification.

They can click on it, they can go back to your website.

This little simple hack using Subscribers, some bloggers get over several thousand visitors a month.

They may not be all unique visitors because you may have a lot of subscribers and they keep coming back, but there is still several thousand plus visitors a month.

When you write a blog post you naturally are using stats and data to back up your point.

If you aren’t, you should consider using them, ’cause it’ll help anchor you as the expert in the industry.

When using all these stats and data and you’re linking to these sites, send out an email.

But when you send them an email saying hey, “I mentioned you, I really love your content, thank you for creating it.”

There’s a good chance that you’re going to get people to share your content on the social web.

It’s that simple.

Use BuzzSumo

The next strategy I have for you is to use Buzzsumo.

Using Buzzsumo you can type in keywords related to your article.

See what other relevant articles are out there that are similar.

Click the view shares button and you can see all the people that shared similar content.

You can then email them, you have to do some Google searches to find their email.

And you can email them and say like, Hey Curtis, I know you shared out X, Y and Z article by author A, B, and C.

I have a similar article that just came out, you can check it out here.

It’s another simple approach to get more traffic.

As you can see a lot of these tactics that we are talking about take time.

We are not saying it’s easy to get more traffic, but you can get more traffic if you blog less, because you can spend all this time promoting your article.

Work On Your Headlines

The last tip I have for you, is to work on your headlines.

Everyone thinks if you write the longest and the best blog post, you get the most traffic.

And that is true, good content helps you get more traffic.

But here’s an interesting stat for you.

Eight out of 10 people will read your headline but only two out of 10 people will click through and read the rest of your article.

So if you spend time making amazing headlines, you’ll get more traffic.

And when you’re thinking about headlines, just don’t create one headline for your blog post, create at least five if not 10 headlines.

Then pick the one that’s the most appealing.

Look for headlines that are around five to seven words, around six is ideal.

If it’s longer it’s going to be too long and it’ll get cut off from the Google search listings.

If it’s too short, it’s not descriptive enough for people to know what your article is about.

In addition to keeping it around that length, you want your headlines to evoke curiosity.

For example, if I was writing an article on green tea, my headline may be like – the seven benefits of green tea.

I know that headline is a bit long, but you get the point I’m trying to make, I’m trying to invoke curiosity.

So if you wanna get more traffic, don’t just spend more time blogging, spend more time on the marketing than blogging.

That doesn’t mean you can write mediocre content, that means the content you write has to be really amazing.

But you should spend even more time than whatever you did writing it, promoting the article.

Use the 80 20 rule. If you spend a hour writing the article, spend four hours promoting it.
