Hey boss, that’s Omar White and In this post I wanna share with you 10 tips on how to grow your blog traffic absolutely free.
If this is your first time here, I’m a full time online entrepreneur since March 2013 and since then I’ve worked with hundreds of clients showing them how to grow their brands and businesses online using evergreen marketing strategies.
Before we start, make sure you get the “Free Blog Traffic Worksheet” using the button below. It will help you take action on everything you’ll learn in this post.
Let’s get started
Tip number one I have for you to Increase your blog traffic is to
SEO Your Content.
SEO stands for search engine optimization. It means optimizing your content for search engines like google, yahoo, and bing so, it can be ranked higher and found easier by your target audience.
Keep in mind that optimizing your content for search DOES NOT mean creating the content just for the search engines. In fact, nowadays, you need to create your content for your audience as the algorithms of search engines is far more smart that you’ll be rewarded if your audience enjoyed your content and got a massive value from it.
Whether you’re creating a blog post, podcast episode or a YouTube video, you need to make sure it’s SEO friendly.
Tip number two to Increase your blog traffic is to
Host Live Webinars
I understand they could be so scary to do especially if you’re just getting started.I totally get that. I remember when I started doing webinars, I was very nervous and overwhelmed with the idea of being live and that people can watch me in real time. The thing is that the typical written blog post is not enough anymore to build a deeper connection with your audience.
When you decide to write a blog post, you plan it, write it and then you schedule it and that’s it.
But hosting a live webinar gives you a chance to connect with your audience, address their issues and help them find a solution.
That way they will recognize you and your content in the sea of content that is being published online
Because you’ve gone the extra mile to connect and build trust with them.
Tip number three to Increase your blog traffic is to
Guest Post On Related Blogs
This tip doesn’t only apply to blogging. If you’re a youtuber, consider doing collabs with other youtubers.
If you’re a podcaster, do interviews with other podcasters.
It just works.
Why? You ask
Because of two reasons
First: it builds your authority in front of your audience.
Second: It exposes you and your expertise to a new audience.
Tip number four to Increase your blog traffic is to
Post Regularly On Social Media.
Think about social media as a huge pool of potential clients and fans.
Being on social media can massively help you understand your market and inspire you to find creative solutions for their problems.
To succeed on social media you need to do three things:
First is to listen to your audience so, you can figure out their problems.
Second: join the conversation so, you gain a better understanding of their issues and the results they want to achieve.
Third: reach out to potential clients to help them solve their issues and achieve their desired results.
Once you do these few steps, you’ll get clear on:
What are the expectations of your audience?
What do they struggle with the most?
How you can potentially help them?
Now, to be successful on social media, you need to balance both:
The social listening and actually posting and being active on different platforms. To do this you’ll need a bit of automation in the process for the posting part.
For this task I use Promo Republic. It’s an amazing tool that makes my life a lot easier when it comes to regularly posting in social media.
It supports Facebook, twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and linkedin. Which means it will be more than enough if you’re just getting started with social media
Plus you can schedule unlimited posts in each network.
Tip number five to Increase your blog traffic is to:
Create The Best Content In Your Market
I’m sure that you’ve heard it like a million times before,
Content is king.
And it’s true until today with a little twist
Great content is king, not just any content.
The better content you create, the more traffic you’ll get
Of course there is more to it than just creating great content. But still content is the most important part.
You can use a tool like buzzsumo to analyze the content across your market and then create a better version of it using your personality and expertise to make it unique.
Those five tips were all about either things that you can do in your own platform and social media channels or things to do with your business buddies who share the same journey with you.
But what about those who are considering you as a competitor. Does this mean that you can’t increase your blog traffic using their platform and social media channels?
Of course not.
Here is what you can do to leverage your competitors platform and social media presence

Tip number six to Increase your blog traffic is to
Join The Conversation About Your Competitors On Social Media
You’ll do this to listen what their clients are saying about their experience with them so, you can find creative ways to improve your business.
Tip number seven to Increase your blog traffic is to
Comment On Your Competitor’s Blog & Social Media Posts
This needs to be done while being helpful and friendly and not in a spammy way. You’ve done the listening already in the last step and now it’s time to be helpful.
Another possible result that could happen is to build a relationship with this competitor so they can become your best business partner.
Tip number eight to Increase your blog traffic is to
Contact Blog Owners Who Link Back To Your Competitors
Because chances are if they’re linking back to them and you already made a better version of the same content, they can end up linking back to your content as well.
This means that you’ll be leveraging their existing traffic which leads to more traffic to your blog.
Tip number nine to Increase your blog traffic is to:
Contact Those Who Share Your Competitor’s Content
Again, using a tool like buzzsumo you can find out who shared your competitor’s content and in which social media network as well.
This is useful in two ways:
First: you’ll know which social media is most popular for you and worth your time.
Second: you can contact those who share the content and reach out to them to share your better version of the content as well.
Tip number ten to Increase your blog traffic and the last one for this post is to:
Reach Out To Those Who complain About Your Competitor & Help solve Their Issues
Remember in tip number six when you joined the conversation about your competitor in social media to listen what their clients are saying about them?
Now it’s time to find those clients who seem to complain about your competitor and offer to help them out in solving their problem.
This way you’ll be building a client base while being helpful and providing value at the same time.
There you have it boss, use these ten tips to increase your blog traffic without paying for ads and build a client base in the process.
