If you are using duplicate content, then I am sorry to say that you are wasting your most important time in blogging. Because Google is becoming smarter day by day. Let me explain What happen if you write 6000 words post and someone come and just selects all and copies all things and does some modifications and paste in his blog. I know you are full in anger. But don’t worry Google recently attach google panda in his algorithm. So Panda ll penalizes his blog, and soon Google ll delete his blog from search Results.

SEO: What is SEO:
SEO Stands for (search engine optimization). You have to optimize your blog for search engines like use attractive titles, description, and keywords.

How to select blogs to guest Post:
- Search Blogs related to your niche.
Check them if they are good like check article. Like in my case I search in google (Quality blogging types blogs) for guest posting and I select first 3 blogs and then I check Blogs rankings, Writing styles, or what link they give do follow or no follow. Nofollow means that link juice does not transfer in your blog. So simply dont post in these blogs which giving no follows links.
- Contact them through the contact page and write your introduction tell them you want to guest post on there blog. Further, they ll guide you.
Backlinks are the links coming from other Sites through comments, Guest posts, Or forms. How to make Backlinks: You can make backlinks through commenting on others relevant blogs, Guest Posting, Or dictionary submission.
I have a tip for you which I use.
Follow popular bloggers in Social networks like (Facebook). Whenever they post something then go to the link and read full article then comment on there blogs that what you feel while reading.In this case, there is Three benefits for you (1)Your blogging knowledge increase and (2)They ll help you in many things and (3) Visitors ll come to your blog through the link in your name or you provide. Don’t Spam: Its just a trick don’t spam there blogs with the nice post, Good post in all posts.
- Write comment professionally Not like a newbie.
- Always comment with deep thought so other ll follow your comment.
- Don’t spam.
Always posts your posts on social networks like Facebook, Twitter etc. Okay again one more tip for you. Publish your post professionally like i see many newbies post in social with post title and then link. I recommended you to write at least one paragraph in which tell that what you ll learn in this post etc. Peoples surely attract in your post and visit your post. And your traffic from social ll increase.
Participate in communities:
Always be a part of communities like google communities. In communities, you can connect with others bloggers and share your knowledge like sharing your post and help the communities. I see communities With million Members so if they like your post according to their rules then think million or thousands ll definitely visit your blog and your traffic ll increase.
The very final option is Advertise your blog. You can advertise your blog through google ad words, , Facebook Ads, And blogs advertisements. This ll help you to increase your blog traffic.
Follow Your Fun
Pick a blog topic you have fun talking about.
Following/blogging your fun detaches you some from outcomes. Since you won’t obsess over getting traffic or profits you can devote most of your energy to giving help to your readers. They will like this. This is code for “you will draw increasing traffic to your blog by blogging on a topic you feel passionate about.”
I can talk about blogging and travel all day long. So I blog about these topics on my blog. Readers feed off my passionate energy, soak up my posts, spread my word and my traffic gradually increases.
If you want to get traffic, give help.
Help readers through your blog, through niche specific Facebook Groups and G Plus Communities and through forums related to your niche.
Help folks for the sake of helping folks. Revisit step #1; if you’re helping for fun, traffic and profits are just icing on the cake or extras. Take this attitude to help people freely and readily and to draw in more traffic.
Publish a blog post at least once weekly. Intend to help your readers by solving a pressing problem from your niche. I listen to my readers and ask them how I can help them through social media. These awesome folks literally bring me blog post titles on a golden platter through their responses.
ABL: Always Be Learning.
I learn something new about blogging every day by following top bloggers.
By learning, I remain nimble. Meaning, I can stop on a dime and change strategies if need be to better serve my audience.
Example; every blogger and their brother advised bloggers to use pop-ups to build lists for many years. But Google laid the smack down on the aggressive pop-up usage recently, demoting pop up obsessed bloggers to the Google Sandbox, like little kids who played with their precious toys too much, annoying readers in the process.
By keeping current and being open to learning I can alert my readers to the fact that insistent, aggressive pop-up usage can mean a terrifying downturn in Google traffic.
Follow blogging big dawgs and daw getters from your niche. Learn. Soak up knowledge like a thirsty sponge who just traveled through the desert. Share your newfound knowledge with your readers. Boost your blog traffic.
I am a Lord of the Rings nut.
I also learned a secret to getting mad blog traffic many moons ago.
Promote the heck out of other bloggers through Twitter, Facebook, G Plus, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. Interview other bloggers on your blog. Feature other bloggers on your blog.
You will make friends with plenty of these bloggers. Many of these bloggers will promote you to their audiences. Your blog traffic will increase.
Stay on Topic
I help you retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging through every post I publish.
Readers know me as that Blogging From Paradise guy. I give all my energy to doing 1 thing well so readers understand that I can help them in that 1 specific area.
Where your attention and energy goes, grows. As you give your energy to covering 1 topic you will gain authority in that area and you betcha your blog traffic will increase steadily as you stick with your niche.
You can’t be a lawyer and doctor at the same time and expect to grow a successful business. Focus on 1 niche. Stay on topic. Get serious blog traffic by gaining expertise in your niche of choice.
Blog with Love not Fear
This and tip 1 are the 2 most important steps because blogging is an energy game.
How you feel when you act determines the effectiveness of your actions.
Even when I had some success a few years into my blogging career I still blogged predominantly from a place of fear, a place of scarcity. I mostly tried to GET instead of intending to GIVE. I feared running out of traffic and money versus feeling abundant and helping other bloggers from a place of love.
I had to slam into some stiff resistance – aka going the freak broke – before I faced my fears, felt them, released them and decided to predominantly blog from an energy of love. Or, before I blogged about love and fun, versus from a place of fear, manipulation, and scarcity.
Smile. Relax. Slow down. Calm down. Do things with love.
Build blogging friendships 1 to 1. Forget about chasing numbers. Help 1 person. Right now. With love.
Doing things with love makes you and your blog infinitely powerful because so many bloggers do things from fear. You will shine brightly and also inspire more bloggers to do things with love.
This is my favorite tip for getting blog traffic.
So I hope with these steps your blog traffic ll increase and you ll now not going to delete your blog. Try These methods at least 6 Months. You ll see your Blog ll rise again with new power.
Never Give up I am again saying blogging is a long term process. There is no short way to increase your Blog traffic you have to hard work and be patient.
Best if luck with your blog and if ll get more ways to increase blog traffic. I ll update this post with more ways.
What tips can you add to this list?
