Link Building – It works as a trust vote

Link building is a part of SEO strategies. Search engines loves quality links and hate irrelevant links. Thus it is important to have relevant and quality links to your blog. Links can be backlinks, outbound links, reciprocal links, connect to other blogs directly or indirectly but the only thing to remember is to get links from good PR and same niche blog.

Specially avoid falling into the trap of buying backlinks for sake of improving your search engine ranking as Google have rolled out an algo update called penguin update, which will flag all such sites who are using spam ways to get links to the site. The best and easy ways to get link to your site is by Guest posting and blog commenting. Write content which are not only unique but also attract organic backlinks, which will help the most.

Maintain blog frequency – Regular content keeps reader happy

Many bloggers don’t get time to maintain their blog frequency thus search engine bots also don’t like such blogs much. It is not that tough to maintain blog frequency, just need to be bit organized. But writing post frequently doesn’t mean that you write articles not related to your niche. Always write article related to your niche and take care about keywords.

Make traffic revisit

So you succeeded in getting traffic from your search. But what next?

Many bloggers miss out on taking this to the next level, and later on regret.

Don’t you want that visitors should stay on your blog regularly? If you haven’t thought about it, you should. As returning visitors are audience, brand advocate.

These people are the one who will share your post on social-media, will tell people about your blog.

How can you do that?..

.. The process is simple as you need to play one secret trick. You need to give them option to subscribe.

I’m sure you have your Facebook page, Twitter page all setup..but are you giving them option to subscribe via email?

Understand one simple yet powerful thing,

You might not check your Facebook, twitter always, but you will always check your emails. If my email hits your inbox, you will either open it or delete it.

Point is, you will see it & take an action. Since ShoutMeLoud sends high quality posts to email subscriber, our open rate is about 16.3%, which is  a good number.

email open rate

Do a simple math:

Email was sent out to approx. 6000 subscribers

16.3% opened the email : == That is 978 readers

6.2% clicked == that is 372 returning visitors…

.. These are the people who will be sharing or commenting & increasing the social value of the post.

    Although organic traffic is not my primary concern (due to how unstable it can be) it never hurts to implement these tips to give your website a boost.

  5. Rajinder Sanwal says

    Thanks for sharing such important information about blogging. I have one question. Does going for Gigs is acceptable to increase traffic?

  6. Zeeshan Shaukat says

    Thanks for the excellent advices. I’ve mostly been ignoring Social Media up until now, but I’ve learned that it simply won’t go away (Google is in this for the long run).

    Another piece of advice that I think should be added is the use of Google Authorship between your website and your G+ page as doing so can benefit your site’s rankings.

    Ruchi i agree with you. There is a very strong relationship between Blog and SEO.
    Blog are more sensitive then a website. Search Engines love blogs, but only when you are giving search engines the chance to come and index your blog posts.
