How To Increase Traffic To Your Website Or Blog

How To Increase Traffic To Your Website Or Blog by Barbie's Beauty Bits

I wanted to share with my fellow bloggers some great tips to help build your empire.   First, I want to start off by saying: The key to becoming successful in business is being relevant.  But, in order to be relevant you need to remain relevant.  This is why in today’s internet-based society, connections and networking are important to successful bloggers and brands.  In addition to the relationships we build, are how we build them.  Well, today I’m going to share with you some simple 101 tips to becoming more relevant in the internet world, because as we know, traffic is life for a website or blog.

Tip 1:  Social Sharing:  Joining social networking group pages, can really pay off.  The social sharing method is one of the most popular and easiest approach to helping you to generate more traffic to your website or social pages.  Considering most who are members of these groups, have the same goal in common. Which is to build their online presence, and to gain followers, so interacting can be a big benefit. Bottom line, if you are able to increase the number of likes, views and shares of your brand, the more visitors you will have. 

Here are a few great ones to consider.  Simply click and if it looks like you, ask to be invited!
Get Social Group... This one is most social sites
Blog Lovin Link Up
The Beauty Blogger Bunch...This one is for comments to your page.  However, this is only beauty related.   
The DIY Beauty Group Board & MORE This is a group Pinterest Board

Tip 2: Creating Blog Links From Comments:   If you are a blogger you know the importance of incoming links to your page from other sites.  With that being said, did you know, you can also use the comment area on other websites/bloggers pages to make a back link to your page? But, are you doing it right?  Are you leaving a clickable link or are you just leaving your blog or website url? Unfortunately, I’ve seen many people just leave their blog name rather than a clickable link to their page.  Therefore, I’m going to show you how to get this to link to your page in just a few easy steps!

How NOT To Do This:   
Great post, I’ve been dying to try this eye shadow.

In the above example, someone can’t link to your site by clicking on the URL.  Instead,  they’d have to copy and paste the URL to get to your page. Furthermore, you are not link building.

How TO DO this:

Great post, I’ve been dying to try this eye shadow.

In layman terms....Insert THE URL TO YOUR WEBSITE/BLOG here.
Replace YOUR TITLE here.

Example: <a href="http://barbiesbeautybitsblogger.blogspot.com/">barbiesbeautybitsblogger</a> 

So, not only is the link clickable, it can now be picked up by search engines. You can also do the above for a post if you'd like. Where instead of inserting the URL to your page, you'd insert the URL to the post. YEAH!

Tip 3: Optimize Images For Better Search Engine Rankings:  You may not realize, but what you name an image when you save it, can really help you with searches.  Hence, helping you to generate traffic from image searches on google.  For example, if you have an image about makeup dupes.  You should not save the images with a generic file name, like blog post 85.  Although, you may know that blog post 85 is about makeup dupes, this will do nothing for you, to help with your search engine ranking.  Instead, you should use a descriptive file name with the keyword you want that image to rank for.  Also, make sure to include your company name in the image to help linking it to you.  I would also do the same with the image properties of a image you place on your site(s).

Example: Mac Makeup Dupes by Barbie’s Beauty Bits.  

So there you have it! Three easy steps on how to increase traffic to your website or blog.  Also, if you thought these tips were helpful, please make sure to stay tune for more! As I will soon be sharing details about a great photo editing program, that is extremely user friendly and fun to use! Called... PICMONKEY ROYALE.

  12. I love blogging how-to posts like this! But, I thought some commenting systems have HTML disabled? That, and, I'm sure there are some bloggers who may frown upon linking in the comments? I'm just curious about this, since I'm rather new to blogging.

    1. Some of them have. Some also have implemented commentluv. However, for those who require approval prior to a post, and network with other bloggers, are usually ok with links to other sites. It can help both involved. None the less, do it with tack and respect for others.
