Read these facts and some suggestions along with it…
1. New Bloggers.

3 Getting More Traffic
It is estimated that when you reach a total of 51 posts your blog traffic increases by 53% it increases by 3 times after you complete 100 posts and 4.5 times after 200 posts. So continue to write worth reading useful content.
· 4. The length of Your Content
There is a slight confusion among bloggers about the needed length of the content. Is a long content or a shorter one will fetch more accessibility among readers? The recent statistics say that there are a good chance to get more backlinks if it’s a longer one. A post of 1300 or above words content will fetch more backlinks and thus more traffic than a shorter one. Of course, there is exception to this, in this busy world who is having time to go deep into a long article, that is true but the experts says the reality is on the other side. LOL
· 5 . Eye Capturing Images
It is another factor that a blog post with more images will get attracted by the general readers and also get more backlinks. This includes screenshots, graphs, infographics, cartoons, artworks, and various other attractive pictures in your blog post.
6. Sharing Your Content Regularly
Your social media shares matter a lot. It is estimated that 41.6% people measure the social influence by counting your post’s social sharing by others. Note that your page should have a share button which helps to reach to different social sites.
· 7. A Good Looking Page
Another important factor to note is about your blog page’s look. If it is adorned with some lovely images along with your quality contents it will easily get the attention of the browsers. But at the same time, If your visitor wants to stay back on your page it must carry some solid, quality worth reading material. Otherwise, all our efforts will go waste and no pictures can do any wonder!
If our visitors do not find any interest in our contents there is a less chance of their visit again or share. So make it a point to fill your pages with quality contents. Though sometimes it may be a bit difficult task, a bit of a research and hard work will pay the bill.
· 8. Content Posting Days
This is yet another unknown thing to many that your posts on Monday’s get more visibility and traffic than other days. Notice the difference between the post published on Mondays’ and other weekly days. Of course, there is an exception to this too, this fact solely depended on the time zone which you are in and the people or the most readers connected from which zone etc. Mostly if you are connected with the western countries surely the weekend day are a less or dull activity days. Also, another fact found out recently is that: If you publish the post on Thursday’s there are a good chance to get more social shares. So apart from Mondays’ Thursdays’ too carries wait! So make it a point to not to miss Mondays’ and Thursdays’.
· 10. Social Media Sharing
Your social media numbers (more friends) will fetch you more shares and simultaneously you get more traffic. Here we need to have more care while selecting new friends or accepting new friends. Try to stick with the friends who are interested in your niche or products and accept only such requests. If you accept all your friend requests you may sometimes land in trouble without any response and at a later stage, you need to do a complete purge of such friends. And note that this is a time-consuming thing process and I did this lately with my all three major social media. I bet it’s a cumbersome process and am sure in the process you may even lose some valuable friends too. And then again to go with an explanation or accepting new request etc. To avoid these processes select your friends wisely. That will surely give a good share and traffic to your pages.
11. Posting Quality Contents
It is observed that more contents about a product or company will fetch the attention of more people. More than 70% people’s attention will get to a quality content than from an attractive ad. Notice that ads will fetch less but quality contents will fetch more. So concentrate on contents which attract people by reading it.
· 12. Posting Regularly
Post your blog post regularly on a regular basis that will fetch more leads, it is found that it generate 4 times more leads than a weekly or a monthly post. So this will encourage people to post on every day but the problem is that the frequency increases there is every chance to miss the quality. This is very important to be noted while doing the most frequent posts.
· 13. Visiting Fellow Bloggers Pages
Visit a minimum of 5 to 8 blog pages daily if possible more on a daily basis that will surely increase your knowledge but at the same time make a good rapport with them by commenting on constructive and meaningful comments relevant to the subjects. Eventually, that leads to a new relationship with new writers and get acquainted with them well that will surely increase your readability and status.
· 14. Building Relationship With Fellow Bloggers
Build or develop a good relationship with fellow bloggers by visiting their pages and by interacting with feedback through comment columns and via email or social media contacts. Though some may not respond immediately slowly and surely if your relationship develops in a systematic way it will pave the way to have a concrete relationship and that will fetch many benefits in the long run in relation to your writing.
