More Blog Traffic: 4 Ways to Generate More in Less Time

Ryan 18 responses Traffic Generation

Time is of the essence, especially when it comes to ways to increase blog traffic.

Let’s face it; most people are impatient and want to know how to accomplish more in less time. Even patient, driven people are quite lazy in many ways, trying to find out how to achieve better results in less time. There is nothing wrong with being creative and innovative to reach a desired end in minimal time if you pay strict attention to the quality of your work.

Newbie bloggers often enter the fray with a desperate, worried, fearful attitude, attempting to rush through their blogging duties to attract a massive readership or generate a ton of cash online. This is the worst approach to take in the blogging game. Focus on acting intelligently before you sprint into any specific activity if you want to succeed.

One pressing question faced by all bloggers: how can you effectively generate more blog traffic in less time?

blog traffic more in less time

You want to succeed online but you also want to have a life. I travel the world throughout the year and need to be able to generate passive income while on a plane or chilling at the beach. Unless I leverage my presence I am doomed.

Truthfully, I was doomed for many years. I worked 12 to 15 hours daily, attempting to do everything by myself, creating and promoting my own content, trying to get traffic to my blog, searching everywhere for free blog traffic. I ignored the idea of building a community, or of joining tribes, or of cross-promoting, so I naturally struggled, attracted few readers and to make matters worse, I had little free time to relax from the work day stresses which built up inside of me.

Fast forward a few years. I cracked the code. I can chill on the beaches of Bali while my blog traffic steadily increases each month. I can jet across the world while I attract more readers and business opt ins. I finally accepted the idea that you can draw in more blog traffic in less time if you are willing to intelligently think through your blogging campaign.

Thinking means turning off your laptop and performing an honest assessment of your strengths, weakness, successes, failures and heck, everything surrounding your blogging campaign. Me, I wrote for an audience of crickets. I created some 400 blog posts and had like 5 readers. I avoided this depressing truth until I sat down one day, turned off the laptop and admitted that I was acting like an automaton, a mindless, foolish blogger who refused to think through why he was doing what he was doing. The moment I changed my mindset, and I started to think through why I blogged, and how I was blogging, and where I could improve, well, really neat things started to happen for me in a lot less time.

1. Join Relevant Tribes To Get Blog Traffic

relevant tribes

Joining relevant blogging tribes helps you expand your presence quickly. Imagine 50, 100 or 200 people sharing your online business content on a daily basis? I admit, I just joined Triberr again yesterday, and hey, even though I want to tell folks on an ego level that I boosted my blog traffic by myself, it is a lie ;)

My new online business blog received 300 to 400 views daily. After joining Triberr I see 700 views today, and I still have 8 hours left for more visits. The power of tribes is stunning, really, because you learn the power of leveraging to the fullest extent. If you promote yourself all day long you can reach a small audience. You run out of time.

If other people promote you all day long you can reach a large audience. This is smart blogging; influence others to promote your content to save you time. Join tribes. Share as many blog posts as you can daily across multiple networks.

2. Share Other Blogger’s Content

share content

You cannot stop at tribing it up in order to leverage your presence and get more blog traffic in less time. You must aggressively share OPC – Other People’s Content – to become popular in the blogosphere and strike a chord with other bloggers. Yep, folks realize that you are a kind, giving person and more individuals graciously return the kind act.

This is not a 1 for 1 deal. You must cut the online business strings to make this work. Think through the concept of sowing and reaping, or simply dwell on the idea of karma. What you put out there returns to you in some way, shape or form, so if you promote other people you cannot help but to influence people to promote you.

Example; say you promoted 30 other bloggers today on twitter, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Google Plus and Facebook. This promoting takes you little time; a minute or so per post, to hit share buttons. Some of these 30 bloggers – perhaps 7 to 10 – will immediately promote you in return on 1 or more of these social networks. Can you see why sharing other blogger’s content makes your job easier? You help people and people promote you in return, leveraging your presence to the hilt.

You can join blog commenting tribes to receive a nice little blog traffic boost. No need to write a 500 word comment to stand out from the crowd. Simply share your opinion on the post, address the blogger by name and thank them for their sharing. Since we want to generate more blog traffic in less time we will place the emphasis on sharing content before commenting, because leaving your opinion more than a few times daily creates a time drag which adds up over weeks.

3. Pay Strict Attention to Blog Titles

attention blog titles

If you write a kick-butt post but use a poor title you just wasted your time because few people click on lame titles. Spend 5 or 10 minutes thinking through your title. Does it grab your reader’s attention? Do you feel moved by the title?

Use action verbs, colorful adjectives and numbers to snare your readers quickly. Action verbs like “download“, or “snag” are easily visualized, making these words appealing to your target audience. You can easily see yourself downloading or snagging something so expect to receive more clicks by using these words frequently in your titles.

Employing colorful adjectives paints a vivid, brilliant picture your readers cannot ignore. If I describe a “Cantankerous Blogger” you immediately see an old curmudgeon, or some grumpy, miserable blogger, and just need to click through to learn more about this grouch.

Using numbers creates order in your mind. Orderly minds are free from chaos, desperation, or any form of straining and striving which makes your day miserable. Look above. You see “4 Ways” so you immediately know what you are getting with this blog post.

By writing attractive, appealing titles you will boost your page views without having to churn out some insane number of blog posts daily.

Leveraging 101 here, as you can create 1 or 2 blog posts and see a steady flow of blog traffic through these offerings due to your carefully thought-out titles. You save yourself time and generate more blog traffic too.

Pay attention to the wrapping, OK? If you spend 20 minutes writing a blog post spend 5 minute or more choosing a title so readers click the title and you get more out of your blogging efforts, in less time, of course.

4. Automate Blog Traffic Generation Process

automate blog traffic generation process

I like tweeting. I like Facebook sharing. But I also want to be able to use my fingers 10 or 20 years down the road. If you automate some processes you save yourself time and serious wear and tear on your body. I enjoy receiving 8 to 9 hour’s worth of sleep at night.

If I can simply use a plug in to tweet my old posts I can get my sleep and generate more blog traffic. Again, I get more blog traffic in less time because I employ the principle of leveraging. Another example; use the paid version of a social sharing tool to promote your latest posts to hundreds of groups on Facebook and Twitter. Reach a maximum audience in a minimum amount of time.

Be smart. Use tools to automate some processes. Just avoid going overboard, fully automating some social accounts because bots are the scourge of many respectable bloggers and eager readers. Interact with your readers to prove that yes, you are real, and then automate some processes to get more blog traffic in less time.

Blog Traffic: Generate More in Less Time

Join relevant tribes and promote people aggressively to boost your blog traffic in less time. Pay strict attention to your blog titles to get more page views for each post, saving you precious time in creating content. Automate some processes to draw in more readers while you sleep, hang out with your family or laze at the beach. Be intelligent guys. Think more and act less. Take a day where you simply plan through your blogging campaign to save yourself time and energy.

  1. Awesome post, Ryan. You’ve got to give before you can get. I like your suggestion to sharing content from other bloggers. You basically get back what you put out. It’s basically the law of sow & reaping.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. This is such a quick and easy way to boost your own traffic Etieno. If you can simply create good content and share your bud’s stuff you are beyond golden. Persist and prosper. Thanks for your keen insight dude!!

  2. Jutta Harms

    Great advice! I found it difficult to find the right tribes without going to broad or worse having the wrong audience.
    What are the best practices to find relevant tribes? What do you do if the industry you are targeting is fairly new to social media and blogging and there are no tribes out there?

    1. I would start your own tribe Jutta and comment like crazy on niche blogs to build relationships and grow your tribe. Build those relationships and only good things will happen for you, and your blog. Thanks so much for sharing your comment with us!

  3. Sita Gabriel

    I see it’s a good place to get more traffic to your site, I’ve heard of Triber 2 months ago, but didn’t give it a try. Now that I’ve read this wonderful post, I’ll surely try to get more traffic to my blog.

    I first have to set up the RSS page with Feedburner.

    Thanks for the nice read!

    1. Hop on triberr Sita, you will love it! So many helpful engaging bloggers who are quick to help you expand your presence, as long as you help others out. It is free too, although you can use the paid option.

  4. Mandy Eve-barnett

    I blogged about finding time to blog today…what a coincidence! Can I link back to your site?
    Great tips I will keep. My 2013 challenge is to post once a day – so far so good! I’m using a desk diary word for inspiration.

    1. Sounds great Mandy! I myself like using the moment for inspiration; I look around and check it all out, soaking up the sites and sounds of where I am, which is Costa Rica in the moment. Thanks much for sharing!

  5. Thank you for the insight! I am always questioning how to work more productive. :-) I like the way you compared sitting on the beaches Bali while your computer works for you! Some automation is important!

    1. Ryan Biddulph

      So true Kirstin, thanks so much for sharing! I am doing the same thing now in Costa Rica, chilling on the beach while I prosper. Intelligently think through your campaign and you will be able to save time.

  6. Ann

    You are so right about these; since joining Triberr and a couple of blogging groups, I’ve increased my readership and my reach. I know I need to work on improving my key words and my titles next though.
    Thanks for a great article.

    1. Ann, this is such a quick and easy way to get more traffic in less time. Help other people through tribes. If you do this daily you will see increasing returns on a daily basis, and wonder why you did not join tribes earlier ;) Thanks!

  7. Marilyn

    Thank you so much for being so engaging Ryan and for creating such a great audience for commenting, I have learned from you and them. I appreciate the info and how you respond. I have been wanting to work on my blog in exactly this way and am excited about understanding the tribes.

    1. My pleasure Marilyn and thank you for doing such a wonderful job yourself! I see you engaging frequently and growing your tribes fast. Keep up the great work! Thanks for your continued support too, buddy ;)

    2. Marilyn

      Yes I am very interested in this concept of tribes and am going to be getting more and more into it. I love connecting and being part of big circles with influential people that care. There is so much we can accomplish together.

    3. Falling in love with the idea of tribing makes your job much, much easier, because it will just be plain fun to tribe it up lol….keep up the sensational work, you are doing a fab job and expanding your presence quickly!

  8. Joann Woolley

    The TITLES! That one is golden. I bypass posts all the time because the title simply is so bland. Give first – always true in life – and moreso in blogging world! The thing I need to work on most is the automation part. Thank you for making a poignant list.

    1. My pleasure Joann! By doing a few things on a daily basis you form habits which help you drive more blog traffic in less time. It is all about setting up good habits and you prosper in the long run. Thanks!
