blog visitor traffic spike

Last week we smashed our visitor record by 240%!

A colleague wrote to me today. She’s been blogging her heart out, but not getting many comments. So I offered some advice:

‘You certainly have been faithful with your blogging.

It’s such a slow burn.

But the search engines are going to love you for it in the end.

The number and scope of your posts is amazing.

You deserve a lot more comments.

I can’t find you on Twitter.

I promote each of my posts several times on Twitter.

This has been key to building visitor traffic.

It has also helped to be mentioned in several blog lists:

We’ve also had some comments from Seth Godin and Penelope Trunk.

These blogging heavyweights add massive cred; just check the traffic spike from Penelope’s last visit! (See above.)

Another way to galvanise your readers is to guest on other blogs.

If you can think of a topic or three that would appeal to our readers:

I could ask MYOB if they’d like to have you as a guest poster.

You’d look jolly good in our Hall of Fame:

With best regards and many thanks for your update. P. :)’

  1. Hi Paul,

    Great post with great ideas. As a blogger I’m always looking for ways to increase my exposure and you have given me some great ideas here. many thanks!

    • Thank you kindly, Malcolm. I’m happy to have been of service. Best regards, P. 🙂

  2. It seems that blogging is often a thankless, readerless pursuit. Which is not a bad thing. Just a reality check that we’re awash with content. Blog for love, I say. And I wish I could fire up with Twitter but, sadly for me I’m sure, it’s not a trumpet of which I’m fond. In any case, these are fine, sensible ideas Paul. I always read with great interest.

    • You got that right, Adam. It is a long road to hoe. But, as you say, if you’re fond of hoing. Hoe in! Thanks for reading. 🙂
