Building a blog, writing and posting articles is one thing while increasing the blog traffic and maintaining it is quite another.

If you have ever wondered how you can increase your blog traffic, read these essential tips that will help you put your blog on the map.

Do keywords research before you write

To create a list of targeted keywords for your content, you can use special tools such as Google keyword planner, KWFinder, SEMrush, etc. These services provide an opportunity to see and estimate what requests, and in which amount is entered in search engines by users on a monthly basis. From this data, you must choose “keywords” that will be most useful for your post.

Make your website design appealing

It’s important to invest time and energy into creating quality content. But, it’s just as important to invest time and money into the design of your blog and content. Many studies show that good design helps you build trust with your visitors. Remember, you have about 50 milliseconds to make a good first impression.

If people trust and like your blog, they are likely to come back. Thus, make sure you invest in good design.

Add visuals to your content (images, infographics, charts, etc.)

Create and add graphics to your content. Images can be a great source of additional traffic to your website. You can let people use your images and ask them to cite you as a source.

Name your images wisely

Before getting to the description of an image, make sure that you name that image correctly. Instead of random letters and numbers, try to add a keyword directly into the name of an image. For example, if you’re writing about Twitter, try including ‘Twitter’ in the name of your featured image.

Add descriptions to your images

Once you upload an image to your article, don’t forget to add a description. Google and other search engines are smart machines so don’t just add a simple keyword into the description. Still, don’t write an entire story in the description. Be brief and precise, and write several words for each image. This can help you with SEO, and it will help you get your images on top of Google image searches for the specific keyword.
