We all want blog traffic. The more the better, right?

But, it can definitely be tricky to find ways to bring new traffic to your site. So I’ve compiled a list of 10 ways you can use to increase your blog traffic!

Image saying 10 ways to increase blog traffic

1. Use Linkedin

Linkedin is a professional networking platform where you build “connections” with others. I share my blog posts there, and I do get traffic from there. It can be a great way to get noticed as a writer as well. This social media outlet is a great tool to increase your blog traffic.

2. Facebook

Now, I used to be on Facebook when I was a teen. Then, I had to get rid of it, because it was simply destroying my mental health. I got it again within the last few months and I do have to manage it very carefully, but I have found it very useful with getting more traffic. There are a ton of Facebook blog groups where you can share your blog posts and interact with others, and even just sharing your writing to your own profile is beneficial.

3. Pinterest

I’m not going to go into too much detail with this one. I don’t feel qualified enough to do so. But, there are some amazing bloggers that offer courses and help with mastering Pinterest and I highly recommend diving into learning as much as you can!

4. Twitter comment threads

I love twitter. It’s my favorite platform. I participate in a lot of blog comment threads and I LOVE getting to meet new bloggers! Twitter is definitely an effective and wonderful way to increase your blog traffic.

5. Advertise on other blogs

I know there are quite a few blogs that offer this (I do too if you’re interested) and it can help with traffic and DA score!

6. Mix

I’m still learning it, but Mix is pretty neat!

7. Share with your friends and family

Of course only if you’re comfortable! It can be helpful to have their support, but maybe you don’t feel comfortable with that and that is totally okay!

8. Work on your DA score

9. Put the link to your latest blog post in your Instagram bio.

10. Use Instagram stories

Show up, at least once a day on your stories and spark peoples interest to click the link in your bio.

  1. Super helpful! It’s nice to see this whole list compiled, since I’m used to reading posts on “how to use Pinterest” or “how to use Twitter” to increase blog traffic. Great that you put everything all together!

  2. These are some very useful tips. I currently keep my blogging quite “secretive” from people I know, and only a few trusted friends/family members know about it- I think it’s just something about having a place that’s completely my own to come up with my thoughts and feelings. Great post ?

    1. I keep everything together personally. I hope you find a way that you’re comfortable with! Thanks for reading and commenting ?

  3. For me twitter brings most traffic. I am trying LinkedIn and mix too but I have not seen any results from them yet.

  4. There are a few things that have really been helping my blog, for one thing it’s been SEO. I’ve been using a plugin that helps me fix my blog posts to make them more SEO friendly. The other thing that’s been helping my blog, that i’ve been slowly been working on to improve my blog is use Pintrest more. It’s one of those things that’s been slowly helping me get more blog traffic! Great post ? xxx

  7. Thanks for this blog post!!! never used Linkedin for this kind of things…..I usually use it when I’m looking for a job!!! IG stories as well…you gave me so many ideas!!! I do not have lots of views, not even 300 in the last 30 days so I’ll try to promote my blog the best I can.

    1. Yes! Explore as many avenues as you feel comfortable! You can always send me a message if you want some help! Thanks for reading and commenting ?

  10. This is a great list which gives me some direction to go in next. I love Twitter, too. But it is time to work on developing a presence on other platforms. I would love to see you write a post on how to improve your DA score, and another one on how to use Instagram stories.

  11. Oh great, I tried LinkedIn and got decent traffic but I’ve stopped sharing on it for no reason. I really think I should get back to LinkedIn. Thanks for sharing
