Even in this new year of 2013, we are striving and working our buts off to increase our traffic to our blogs.
It is a never-ending journey and a journey that has so many turns and twists.
I say it this way because if you have no strategy in driving traffic to your site, then you are not going to increase those numbers in your Google analytics dashboard.
As you pat down a strategy for increasing your traffic as a blueprint for a house, you will come to realize it is not quite like a solid blueprint.
You re-edit, add, take off, increase a certain activity, and so on…
You get the point!
As 2013 rolled in, also Google rolled in with a few updates of its own such as Panda and Penguin.
As I am reading about these updates and hearing so many horrible/wonderful stories from many webmasters, it makes me think about and come to a conclusion that it is all about “quality”.
“Quality” rules the game in SEO and the traffic that you need to create this year!
High quality work produces high quality results which in turn will give you the quality traffic that needs to be on your blog!
I warn you that building very good traffic in this day and age, will be harder than ever.
But trust me and many others who have done it, it is still possible to build a high number of visitors to your blog and get more followers.
But you may be saying, “I am already building traffic through these same exact tips in this article.”
You actually may be doing these techniques, but your tapping only onto the top-level and not really getting your hands dirty.
There is more digging to be done into more advanced levels of these traffic tips!
If that doesn’t make sense to you, it will make much more sense as you continue to grow your specific channels of driving quality traffic through these same techniques and continue to teach yourself ways to achieve even greater results through them.
