How To Produce a Traffic Spike in Your Blog Stats

If you are writing consistently, but haven't yet seen an increase in traffic, there are a few things you can do to create an instant traffic boost. But all things done in order, you need a great blog post first. Not just a good blog post, but a really awesome post. You also need a really intriguing blog title, as well. This title will be the grabber for your readers in this style of traffic boosting, so it should not only be a great description of what your article is about, but grab the attention of the reader in a way that they just can't resist but to click on your article's title.

The post itself should be either newsworthy, or just full of fantastic information that the reader feels compelled to continue reading. Most of your blog posts or articles will not have this level of greatness, and it may take you a while to write such an article. This is a very important fact you must realize, that the article must truly be fantastic in order for this tactic to work, otherwise if you try it with too many mediocre articles or posts, readers will get to know that, and once you have the article that truly is great, you may have already let potential readers down and they may not be as willing to read the next one. Once you have that article, you're ready for the next level.

If you would like to see some great examples of the type of article I am speaking of, take a trip over to reddit or digg and read some of the hot topics and articles that are being posted. The articles on the front page of both of those sites are the best of the best. This is where you're going to find your "instant" traffic. When you've got your great article reader-ready and published on your blog, sign into one of these sites, it's free, and submit your article. Within just a few minutes, your article will be exposed to millions of readers, hungry for something great to read. You'll notice a spike in your traffic, which will actually help you in the long-run as well. By submitting your best article, you expose readers to your whole blog.

If it is truly a great article, readers will be likely to come back to your blog to check for more articles, and you could be looking at an increase in traffic on a more regular basis. If you are actually capable of writing articles of this level quite often, you'll definitely develop a larger flow of traffic that continues to grow. However, if your articles don't match that level of greatness, you'll simply enjoy a momentary spike in traffic and your stats will fall near the level they previously were before you posted your best article. You may even get the pleasure of attracting a few new readers who enjoy your blog for what it is.

  1. That's cool! you need a great content first but if it's not well keyword optimized then visitors won't find you at all and therefore, you need a proven keyword tool that can find the keywords consumers find on the net. I'm so familiar with such a tool and it's colibritool that promises to boost your traffic using its innovative features. This tool is on colibritool.io and it's very cheap.
