How To Get More Traffic To Your Blog For Free

Last Update: April 22, 2021

There is no secret miracle in getting more visitors to your website, but there are some ways to entice people to click on your blog posts. How to get more traffic to your blog for free is today's topic, but you are going to have to use social media.

Free Ways To Get Website Traffic

Writing high-quality content is our number one method as bloggers, but there are a number of methods to entice people to read your posts as a beginner. That is what this is going to be about, and as simple as it sounds it does take commitment and hard work.

  • Search engines
  • Social media
  • Influence Marketing

We will look at each one as a new website, and this will provide you a better idea of what you are up against.

Search Engine Ranking

As a beginner, you are going to struggle usually in your first 3-6 months. For one thing, Google, Bing, and Yahoo are going to be watching you. They are not just going to put your content on the first page right away, you like every other website must earn that privilege. Just keep writing high-quality posts with as much valuable information as you can find, and with time the search engines will see you are serious about being a blogger.

Social Media

Right now social media is going to get your traffic, but you must be persistent in posting your content. You also will need to support others in your niche, and in return, they are going to support you as well. By doing this you are creating an image for your business, and this will work, I have been using this technique for years.

  • Like
  • Comment
  • Mention
  • Share
  • Follow

These things are going to get you noticed online, and by using these effectively you can build followers. Even if you despise social media, you need this right now.

Influence Marketing

You will become known as an authority within your niche, and all because you are posting on social media regularly. You are able to do this every day in less than an hour, so figure to spend only 15-20 minutes on your social media preferred sites.

What Are You Writing About?

You need to choose your topics more carefully, I imagine many of you are writing according to the best keywords. Even though this is important, you need to still choose topics that are going to entice people to have a reason to come to your website. How do you think you could accomplish this, you simply just need to focus on solving people's problems.

Enticing Headlines Is The Key

You can receive more traffic than you realize on social media, and how you do this is by choosing topics with enticing headlines. Instead of writing about Wealthy Affiliate for an example, I suggest you write on something such as How to Earn Money While Receiving Disability. Some other examples might be:

  • How to Make Money Using Your Computer
  • Can You Work While Receiving Disability
  • Social Security Maximum Earnings

Avoid any headlines that give the impression you are trying to sell something, you also want to avoid trying to convince people to join in your headline. If you focus on solving a problem in your headline, you are going to receive more free traffic than you realize.

Social Media Opens Search Engines Eyes

Even as much as I despise my time on social media, you are going to get the attention of the search engines. The more likes followers, shares, comments, and mentions you receive are going to become noticed, and this alone can speed up your organic traffic by higher ranking.

Any Comments Or Questions?

Feel free to leave me any comments or questions, I write these posts to help you understand and experience success quicker. Sadly, I am not receiving as many members reading my posts as I had hoped by now. For those of you who are following me, and reading my posts, I am writing these for YOU.

I am about to call it a day, but I did add some affiliate programs on my website with the Jaaxy widget just now.

Wow, really cool, Jeff!

Now all I need is lots of posts to bring in some traffic, and that is the biggest challenge in the money niche

All is well at my place other than a rainy day, I have been busy writing this week

I was woken up in the middle of the night with an emergency alert in my apartment building, it was something in the laundry room.

So I had trouble getting back to sleep, and today tired so not writing today

Wow, unnecessary excitement, eh, Jeff?

Why do apartment buildings always have fires in the middle of the night
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Because that is when the careless tenants are all home, Jeff!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
Good point, I do have a lot of elderly living here and some young not so bright youngsters as well
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
A recipe for disaster, I'm afraid!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
Yes, that is the downside of apartment building living
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
It certainly is, Jeff

Not so perky this morning, I have to go for my second injection for COVID so not going to get any writing done more likely

A day without writing is never a good day for me
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Good luck, better you than me! I'm not going to be a test subject.

I kind of wish I had not started this now
Reply

Well, you can always stop. My mom said she regrets it.
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
Really, I am sorry to hear that
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
I am not surprised! She hemmed and hawed, and I had already told her what I thought, and with the news on these things coming out daily with even more stories....🤔

I did have some mild flu symptoms for a few days after this second injection, and some people have even died from these injections I heard recently
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
More and more, it seems. No one knows what is in those injections.
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
Besides they are giving people injections from several different companies
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Even worse, it is like playing the lottery, and not a good one either, IMHO.
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
Yeah, I wish I had not gotten mine now
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
I get that a lot from people who did! One employer here is offering $100 to each employee who takes their shots! Criminal!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
It is a crazy mess, I really don't see this going away even with the injections if they work
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
I have my beliefs about it--it will go away once people realize what it truly was!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
I was thinking it might end up like the flu
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Imagine that!

Not up to much this weekend, how about you

Reorganizing the office is the primary goal, and it will be ongoing for a few weeks, at least!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
It sounds like a lot of work to do in the office, so have you been neglecting it for a while
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Like about three years!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
Oh my, I am sure you have lots of catching up to do
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Yes, but it is fun!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
I am happy to hear you are enjoying yourself, I would think it would be something you have put off so long because it was a pain to do
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Oh, it's a pain to do, but with three other properties, I get around to it when I can!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
I can imagine summer you don't have much free time with three properties to care for
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Not at all, and I am way behind!

You should recruit that teenage step-daughter of yours to give you a helping hand

I know teenagers don't do manual labor today
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
She only does it occasionally, Jeff
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
I suppose you should be lucky she does at all
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Very true!

How is your Saturday going for you, still raining here and really has cooled off

Overcast here, and have been at the eBay house most of the day, Jeff

What did you do at the eBay house today
Reply

More organizing, Jeff!
Reply
Jeff118 Premium
This sounds like a long-term project
Reply

Very long term!
