Smart ways to get more visitors to your blog


Smart ways to get more visitors to your blog

You’ve built your blog and it is awesome.  The content is on-point and you know it will help your visitors. But yet, nobody is visiting.

You need traffic. Without it, you are writing for yourself (and maybe your mom).

To be honest, it will take time. However, there are a few things you can do right now that can give your traffic a boost and get readers to your site.


There are tools you will want to use to get that first bit of traffic to your site. The fast track is Pinterest.  But, even more important over the long-haul, is SEO (or how your site is found when someone goes to Google).

Pinterest is often referred to as a social media platform. It isn’t. It is, instead, a visual search engine.

When people use this platform, they search with their eyes. They will review the images and text to find the articles they want to either save or click through to read.

It is not a place for only recipes and DIY.  No matter your niche, you can give Pinterest a shot and develop a strategy to get the traffic you crave.


SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is how your site is found when users run a search on Google or other search engines.

In order to rank, your site must be properly optimized.  You will need to use the proper keywords and ensure you use the right formatting to assist the search engines in ranking your content.

It take can take time for a new site to rank but all bloggers should learn and implement smart strategies as soon as possible.
