Fact is, quality blog traffic is like money. The less you have, the more you want. Also, the more you have the more you want! (Well, that night not be entirely true for all people but I think you get my drift.)
The downside is that with this aspect of your blogging journey looming over all the others it can really narrow your focus. Your blog can become repetitive and boring as a result. And you can easily lose enthusiasm for it.
That's why it's important to keep changing your blogging tactics. By trying out new promotional techniques, for example, you are sure to end up with some extra traffic. Some of these methods simply have to bear fruit.
I discovered this when I started participating heavily in social media groups and communities, for example. I was amazed at how many clicks they could bring. I'd been relying heavily on search engines and Twitter up to that point. I just wish I'd discovered the method sooner.
The other benefit of trying new traffic generation approaches is that even if they fail you'll have something to write about. And if they take a while to master, you can write about that process as well. Everything is grist for the mill, as the saying goes.
You can also try out new online tools, both free and paid. Again, doing this may or may not result in lots of extra visitors. Either way you can write detailed reviews of the ones you've been using.
People considering buying such tools are hungry for genuine opinions from those who have used them. And product related keywords, being so specific, are often comparatively easy to rank for. These two factors combine to make review posts better traffic pullers than most And once you have that stream of interested visitors, there's the option of making money from the product's affiliate program.
So, whenever you find yourself looking at your stats wondering how to get more traffic, think about some method you haven't yet tried and give that a go. It will be worth it in several ways.
