Want more blog traffic? Here’s the trick!

Who doesn’t want more readers?
We might say,
I do it for self-satisfaction,
for thought-liberation,
to improve the language,
or create worded memories.

Right and agreed.

But has anyone ever felt they don’t much care about having an audience?
Having an audience to appreciate your work never hurt anyone.

As writers, all of us crave readers.
As writers, all of us want to know what readers feel about our work.
As writers, all of us wish that our words stay with our readers.
As writers, all of us wish to inspire other writers.

So, in the quest for knowledge, we seek answers to such questions.
But there’s one catch

Read no matter how many articles. Refer to no matter how many resources.
Speak to no matter how many experts. Share with no matter how many friends.

No one’s going to tell you this.
If there’s any rule to attract more traffic to your blog,
then it’s this –

Write More

And this, my dear friend, comes from experience.

My blog stats speak volumes about this trick.
Now, you wouldn’t want me to get into the titbits of it.
(Believe me, the numbers are truly embarrassing.)
So to overcome this, I resolved to publish about 4-5 posts each month.
So far, for the past 3 months, this has worked all right for me.
Getting me more readers than expected.
And trust me, having more readers to share their wonderful thoughts
is so much more fun and motivating.
It’s a sea of good people out there, and we know only a handful.

If you too wish to treat your blog right,
Write every day. Write more, each day.

Your thoughts deserve to be heard.
Your words deserve to be read.
Your blog deserves the traffic.

-Asha Seth

  1. This has been my observation from experience too. Writing more is the only key. Earlier I couldn’t give much time to the blog, although I wrote professionally. Recently I’ve revived the blog like never before with a minimum of one post a day and I have reaped its sweet results. More than numbers and statistics, I have found the most interesting and inspiring writers wanting to collaborate on different projects and their appreciation has been such a morale boost. I like your straightforward approach to things. I am enjoying sifting through your posts. Oh and thanks for following, I’m glad to have reached you through this shared love for words.

    1. Yes, rightly said, Maniparna. If not for the interaction, you are always just walking through the dark, with no light. The blogger interactions are like that to me, guiding me in the right, to do yet better. .👣💓

  2. I write a lot.
    Sometimes I write half my posts
    in my mind only to never
    post them, never even remember
    them, ever.

    Sometimes I write in a tongue
    called life to keep the kettle
    on boil in good
    and bad weather.

    Sometimes I read but don’t read
    the fuzz
    and lather.

  3. Asha, your schedule is similar to mine, I too had decided to post at least 4-5 posts a month! Still lot of work to be done, but this is great advice.

    But I never thought that my blog would have over 250 followers in just two months of starting my blog! I’m really happy meeting all the wonderful people here on WordPress too. Cheers 💕

      1. I think being a humble blogger is the Key, do not expect anything from others, from your stats to gaining more readers.
        Its about one thing and one thing alone, to give more than you can take…
        In other words, understand your position and know your not alone in this fight to success, so just go out there and help others more than you expect them to help you…
        You will succeed through time, pure success in the name of love..cheers! 🙂 – Cezane

  7. It is wonderful to see you writing more my friend, you always have a lot to say and write it in the best of ways. I too have upped my game recently aiming for ten posts a month and the traffic is getting better, so much so that I may even write a book review soon. Write on, my friend, I always look forward to your next post.

    1. J, my friend. 🙂 You inspire me immensely with your consistent writing habits that you keep up with. I try to follow in your shoes. To have more to read from you, only means more cups of hot tea and my day is set to roll. ❤ Knowing you're there, well, isn't that exciting? And also that you'd delight me with your stream of thoughts. Perfect! 😉

      1. Well, I shall do my best to keep that up! I will be commencing book reviews soon again and I hope to add to your list and give you plenty to get excited about.

        You inspire me with your writing too, I wish I could write as well but I will always try and be encouraged through your words and posts.

  8. Thats very nice of you Asha to reveal your innerself , your thoughts, emotions by way of writing. I feel proud to be your fan and follower too. Your posts are source of relaxation, inspiration and motivation to me.

    Writing is a very powerful tool. PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN SWORD as quoted by Edward Bulwer Lytton holds perfectly true.

    Its a wonderful experience for the writer when people share thier on on his/ her writings.
    The joy of bieng aprriciated by readers has no bounds …but criticism should also welcomed with an open heart as it also serves as a source of improvement.

    1. Perfect observation, Kiran. Pen indeed is mightier than all other weapons put together. What wars can be won in peace, if words were the warriors.<3
      Fans and critics both are 2 sides of the same coin. None can be ignored. 😛
      Well, how do you do today?:)
