Here are some practical tips to increase your blog traffic that might work very well for you.
Create unique content
When your content is original and unique, it will help you stand out by making a distinction. Original content will enhance your reliability, while creating a feeling of trust between you and your target audience and increase your traffic. ‘Copied content’ taken from other sources will damage your blog’s quality perception and reliability, thus it will have a negative impact on your traffic.
Connect with your readers

You should respond to their questions and comments, build a relation based on ‘bilateral communication’, then make this relation a permanent one. This is because that is the only way to turn them into ‘loyal readers’ visiting your blog regularly and therefore increasing your traffic.
Deliver quality content
If you deliver valuable information in your content, it will position you as an expert in your field, while enabling your potential guests to consider your suggestions and prefer your property. Besides, it will motivate them to visit your blog frequently when your blog content is helpful to them. This way, you can gain a ‘loyal reader group’ and increase your traffic.
Even if you think you have created unique and quality content, it will be become unlikely for Internet users to reach you if you exclude keywords. Therefore, you better focus on keywords in the content. It would also benefit your SEO efforts when the keyword is featured in your blog’s title.
