    Default 4 Steps to Increase Your Blog Traffic

    First Step: Killer Articles (1 hour per day)

    Spend one hour brainstorming, researching and writing killer articles (also called linkbaits, pillar articles and so on).
    Notice that your goal is to release one killer article every week. If that is not possible aim for one every 15 days. So the one hour that you will spend every day will be dedicated to the same piece. In other words, expect killers articles to take from 5 up to 10 hours of work.
    If you are not familiar with the term, a killer article is nothing more than a long and structured article that has the goal of delivering a huge amount of value to potential visitors. If you have a web design blog, for example, you could write an article with “100 Free Resources for Designers”. Here are some ideas for killer articles:

    • create a giant list of resources,
    • write a detailed tutorial teaching people how to do something,
    • find a solution for a common problem in your niche and write about it, or
    • write a deep analysis on a topic where people have only talked superficially

    When visitors come across your killer article, you want them to have the following reaction: “Holy crap! This is awesome. I better bookmark it. Heck, I better even mention this on my site and on my Twitter account, to let my readers and friends know about it.”
    Second Step: Networking (30 minutes per day)

    Networking is essential, especially when you are just getting started. The 30 minutes that you will dedicate to it every day could be split among:

    • commenting on other blogs in your niche,
    • linking to the posts of bloggers in your niche, and
    • interacting with the bloggers in your niche via email, IM or Twitter.

    Remember that your goal is to build genuine relationships, so don’t approach people just because you think they can help to promote your blog. Approach them because you respect their work and because you think the two of you could grow together.
    Third Step: Promotion (30 minutes per day)

    The first activity here is the promotion of your killer articles. Whenever you publish one of them, you should push it in any way you can. Examples include:

    • letting the people in your network know about it (don’t beg for a link though),
    • letting bloggers and webmasters in relevant niches know about it,
    • getting some friends to submit the article to social bookmarking sites,
    • getting some friends to Twitter the article, and
    • posting about the article in online forums and/or newsgroups.

    If there is time left, spend it with search engine optimization, social media marketing and activities to promote your blog as whole. Those can range from keyword research to promoting your blog on Facebook and guest blogging.
    Fourth Step: Normal Posts

    Just like a man does not live by bread alone, a blog does not live by killer articles alone. Normal posts are the ones that you will publish routinely in your blog, between the killer articles. For example, you could publish a killer article every Monday and normal posts from Tuesday through Friday. Here are some ideas for normal posts:

    • a post linking to an article on another blog and containing your opinion about it
    • a post informing your readers about a news in your niche
    • a post asking a question to your readers and aiming to initiate a discussion
    • a post highlighting a new resource or trick that you discovered and that would be useful to your readers

    While killers articles are essential to promote your blog and bring new readers aboard, normal posts are the ones that will create diversity in your content and keep your readers engaged.
