Boost Your Blog Traffic: A Guide For Bloggers Who Want More Traffic in 2011

boost blog traffic

Are you looking for more traffic for your blog?

If you answer yes – you’re not alone. In fact you’re in the vast majority of bloggers. I ran a survey of a segment of ProBlogger readers recently and a ‘lack of traffic’ was identified as the #1 challenge that bloggers face.

Kicking off on Monday 24 January Chris Garrett and I are running a short course to tackle this problem. Over 5 modules we’ll walk you through our philosophies for building traffic to blogs.

The course is just $29.95 USD – or $99 if you do it with our other 4 courses in the Pillars of ProBlogging series. It is the 2nd of these courses that we’ve created (the first had some great reviews) and we’d love for you to join us!

In the course we’ll cover 5 Modules:

Module 1: Where to Start

  • Starting with the visitors you have
  • Build Loyalty
  • Engagement
  • Subscriptions

Module 2: Get Off Your Blog

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Forums
  • LinkedIn
  • Blogs

Module 3: Get More Google Traffic

  • Keywords and key phrases
  • Keyword research
  • Landing pages
  • Links
  • Other ranking influences

Module 4: Advertising and Syndication

  • Adwords
  • Facebook
  • RSS, Aggregators and Syndication
  • Repurposing
  • Guest-Posting

Module 5: Live Webinar

  • Live chat with Chris and Myself (in fact we do two live webinars to accomodate different time zones). These will be recorded for those who can’t make the live webinars.

Each of the modules is made up of multiple videos (a total of over 20 videos) which you’ll have access to for a year – so you don’t have to complete it all in the five days that we release them.

So if you’re looking to boost traffic to your blog in 2011 and you need a little inspiration and instruction to get you going – sign up today for this course.

  1. I think I am going to get into some forums. I haven’t been on many recently besides Digital Point and maybe that is a problem I can fix in relation to my variations of links.

  6. the first step is always introducing the audience to your content and asking them to share it with others. “pay it forward’.

  7. It sounds a great course, getting traffic is very important.

  8. Very enticing however those of us who are trying to get more traffic are usually trying to generate more cash also. More free training would be better if someone truly wanted to help. Just my opinion.

  9. I have got more plans to get traffic for my new website.

  10. Great Darren. I’ve been bookmarking them for a while now and just decided to create a post to provide them to others…I really love to read articles that have good information and ideas to share to each reader.

  11. Very good tips for bloggers, it really helps me find a way to increase more traffic, I recommend it to everyone cause many still haven’t got a clue where to start.

  12. I think this module are great.But my concern do one have to follow through on all this module for one to really get huge traffic?

  13. Every think great to read here, but how to implement Build Loyalty and Engagement and Get Off Blog with social networks? i am regularly following Problogger, but i need more tactics then given here. need more action plan on above categories. Any how its a great post…

  14. very nice advices but it would require a lot of time probably

  15. it sounds like a really good course, is also certainly one I will be looking at.

    Since I write about is addressed only to a small group of people, so all help will be helpful

  16. Thanks Darren .. This helps a lot .. Btw .. what is the big deal about the Google Page Ranks .. how do we increase that .. and more importantly .. do we really need to increase that

    My site http://www.shakein.com is still at 1/10 :(

  17. This is a great way for bloggers to get a head start…I surely would want to get my blog viral…

  18. Darren is the man. You can’t go wrong with his ebooks and training. Solid, practical advice that will always work and there’s no BS involved. Keep it up mate.

  19. Forums are an excellent resource for both links and shared interests. If you can’t find a forum for your niche, start a new forum. Great way to create more interest in your sites.

    Top seven ways to increas the traffic:

    4. Comment on Other Blogs
    5. Don’t Forget About Your Own Readers
    6. Write Guest Posts
    7. Forget About the Money to Begin With

  21. Me too I believe forums is the best way in increasing traffics. Giving solid and helpful suggestions to the readers will surely they will come again and stay for 2 minute or more.
