Drive More traffic to Your Blog


Today is my birthday! Being my birthday, I thought I share some personal insights, thoughts, opinions on how to grow and retain your readers.

Earlier I mentioned Being honest and Open with your readers, having good content and knowing your audience to utilizing social media platforms. What are the real tricks or trade secrets? There are no secrets just common sense and decency.

This morning I ran across an article that was shared to me through my Google Plus, once I got done reading that article I reshared it so that others that are connected to me can read it as well. There is a sentence within that article that is one of the keys to unlock growth, “Remember that you won’t get ahead by being selfish. Share other people’s post and let them know. They will be more likely to share yours“.

This is very true and is what I do on a daily basis, I tweet, Google and Facebook share many of your posts so that others can read those awesome posts. Those that use Twitter know this for a fact.  I have shared Wallace’s work via Facebook. What else can we do? One thing that comes to mind is using Facebook like most of us do to promote our blog but also to send out birthday wishes if you happen to be connected. This reminds of certain companies that used to send out birthday wishes to their clients. It builds that relationship. In business; we learn that it easier to gain new people but much harder to retain those that want to leave. I have seen it first hand, it is like biting the hand that fed you mentality. Granted some companies is not worth your time for some of the practices and or deceptions they use, but we are not them.

We could use Facebook Groups to plug our Blogs so that it can be seen by many. I did the legwork in researching this, so it will be up to you to use these tools.

  2. Happy birthday and thank you for all these great Facebook groups! I feel like Facebook has been one of my least successful ways to connect with people and was close to deleting the account. But with your ideas, I may just find a way to make it work:) Enjoy your wonderful day!!

  3. Happy birthday! Nice of you to share these little info presents! I didn’t know there were such groups, I really struggle to get followers on Facebook, although Twitter is building nicely. So these are very helpful, thank you.
    BTW, did you get my tweet about that rogue site? It’s still lingering about and unfortunately I didn’t make the connection from your post until I’d clicked the link. So far, everything seems ok… Fingers crossed!

      1. I didn’t start a specific scan but my anti-virus has so far shown nothing. I use Firefox instead of chrome so maybe that helped. I’m just angry at myself for not registering the name of the site before looking at it 😦

          1. There were just pop-ups on the site’s page which alerted me, so I exited swiftly. Nothing popped up / turned blue etc once I came back to WordPress. It’s worrying though that you said you’d contacted the site’s owner and it’s still happening.

            1. as long as it was not the blue screen with audio telling you, you have a virus that I showed in the video I did: https://michaelathonyrios.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/wordpress-bloggers-beware-there-is-a-bad-site-out-there-part-3/
              That one produced the Trojan. The others can place minor malware on your system that you won’t notice until you run Windows Defender if using Windows. I would still run a full scan on your system, some virus scanners don’t​ pick these up.
