How To Generate Blog Traffic — 6 Comments

  1. I thought the article was great. However, as a teaching method I found it a little long. For me if it were broken into two or three blogs, giving opportunities for linking posts or pages, would enable me to be able to assimilate more of the great information you have shared.
    I learned quite a bit from your article and have taken several notes which I plan to apply in my own blogging.
    Thanks for a good blog.

    • Thanks for visiting my website and for taking the time to comment. You are quite right Thomas, it is a bit too long. Personally, I don’t like long articles either, Google does, but I must admit this one got a bit out of hands and I ended with a little over 3,800 words. I will certainly follow your advice after I see how it behaves, but I have just posted it and it already ranks first spot in the searches for its key phrase. So, I will give it a few days, then decide how to split it.

      On this subject and for the benefit of my readers, I’d like to share a guide that was sent to me by one of my favorite Wealthy Affiliate mentors Loes Knetsch who wisely says:

      300 words – you are in the wrong business
      500 words – a start
      750 words – getting better
      1000 words – acceptable
      1500 words – good
      2000 words – your aim
      2500 words – excellent
      3000 words – awesome
      3500 words or more – write a book

      Thanks Loes.

      I have also posted an article sometime ago which I should have re-read myself: What Is The Best Length For A Blog Post?, which confirms your views.

      Thanks again Thomas and I hope to see you again on this blog soon.

      Best wishes,

      John

    • Thanks for taking the time to comment on my “How To Generate Blog Traffic” blog post Thomas. I will definitely follow your recommendations. I do tend to be carried away when I have a subject in mind as there is always so much to be shared. I see that it is not the first time that you are bring this up to me, and not the only one either. 

      So, I do appreciate your insistance/reminder and will review my longer articles, and write shorter ones in future.

      Hope to hear from you again in future.

  3. Accurate information. It’s really important to have the SEO plug in. Key words are super important too.

    People also should never underestimate the power of social media though. It’s a great way to get a good boost of early blog traffic to your website.

    I also don’t think amount of content is taken seriously enough. Google likes websites with hundreds of posts and articles over a website with 3.

    • Thanks very much for visiting my website and commenting with some very useful advice Jonathan. In my articles, I very often insist on the importance of using the right keyword tools for keyword research. It is the first and most important action to take when writing content. And of course, as you say, it is very important to share our content on social media as Google love social presence.

      It is well known that a good blog content should be of at least 2,000 words. Although one should not write a lot of words for the sake of reaching that number as Google prefer quality to the size of the article.

      Thanks again for your input Jonathan and I look forward to seeing you again on this website.

      John
