Small Things you can do to get ahead in blogging

I am going to preface this by saying that this is not a foolproof method or some hack to get more views. You won’t achieve thousands of views through this method. These tips are for those blogs that are gaining very little traffic. It can be a small boost to get ahead in blogging.

I use word ads on my blog and I gain a small profit through views, so it’s important to get these views. If you use the incognito mode on your phone, you can open a browser with your blog that will count as a new view. I open up a couple of tabs and I leave them open. From what I’ve known, the views still count towards your view count. And that could be a small boost for the day that you might need. It’s still very small, and you shouldn’t rely on this method to get views.

This next tip is not something new. I’ve seen this tip mentioned in a lot of other blogs. You have to interact with the blogging community. If you think blogging is an individualized path, it’s not. There’s an entire community out there of bloggers and it’s important to join it. If you’re using WordPress, you can search key terms to find other blogs in that topic area. I like to go through these posts and read them if I like it. I also go ahead and like the post. Showing appreciation for someone else’s work is important. It’s a reciprocal process.

Choosing the correct tags for your blog post is also another way to get your blog post seen. For me, I’ve seen the tag “Wordpress” be the most successful. WordPress also gives you analytics to see which tags get the most views. Use that to your advantage!

The last thing I do is I leave my blog browser open. I believe that the length of time someone dwells on your blog plays a role in your google analytics. It shows that your blog has good content. I do this when I have something else to do and I leave it open on my phone. This is not meant to have a huge impact, but I have seen my blog show up more on search engines. We all know blogging is a process that takes awhile, so don’t be discouraged.
