Image source : collegecareerlife.net

Traffic is important for blog …. isn’t it? I believe many readers will support the statement.

So, do you ever wondering on how to create new posts that bring traffic? Well, I do … that’s why I am making this experiment. It’s simple but true method to decide what topic you can write next for your new posts to get more traffic.

Interesting? Let’s start …..

The first thing we can learn about finding idea for next posts that will bring you traffic is to know how your visitors come to your blog.

There are several tools available to record traffic data but in my case I choose google analytics. It’s free and simple to use it for your own benefit.

The basic data of google analytics you can use to bring more traffic into your blog

Traffic source data can easily guide you to see where your visitors come from. Basically there are only few source they might come, first is organic, second is direct  and third is referral.

In case of notordinaryblogger, there is no subscribers. I have backfired with the two language concepts. I found it difficult to set the best ways to build my subscriber lists with this concept. If any of you have suggestion I would appreciate it :)

Meanwhile I have to survive haven’t I?

With no subscribers the main source of traffics you can use are search engine (organic traffic) and referral traffic (by doing blog commenting, social sharing or guest blogging)

Organic Traffic

So, if your blog has no subscribers yet, pay attention on your organic traffics. Does it increase from time to time? If it does, that’s great then you should know how to create more contents that has high potential keywords.

Do you notice anything on what makes your organic traffic  grows ?

It could be the keywords.

Based on google analytics report you can see on what keywords your blog best at a time.

Try to look at it.

Here some screen shot on my keywords data on August 2012 from google analytics :

From the screen shot above, the main keywords that bring organic traffic into my blog are :

  • Mencari uang lewat blog (make money from blog)
  • Cari duit lewat blog (make money from blog)
  • Menghasilkan uang lewat blog (earn money from blog)
  • Cari uang lewat blog (make money from blog)
  • Bagaimana blog bisa menghasilkan uang (how blog can earn you money)
  • Blog yang menghasilkan uang (blog that makes money)
  • Blog bisa menghasilkan uang (blog can make you money)
  • Unique selling proposition adalah (unique selling proposition is … )

From that very simple data, I can conclude the keywords that give traffic for my blog in August 2012  was “make money online” related matters. That’s why my posts in September 2012 were:

  • Are You Making the Right Business Choice?
  • Mencari Uang dari Blog: Laporan Notordinaryblogger bulan Agustus 2012
  • Make Money From Blog Notordinaryblogger Monthly Report – August 2012
  • How to Make More Money from Adfly Text Link Advertisement

The purpose of above posts is clear … to bring more traffic. What’s the result? Check out the traffic comparison reports below

Blog Commenting and Guest Blogging

How about blog commenting and guest blogging? You can take notes on which blog gave you better traffic referral from your data analytics. Take a visit on them and learn the reasons.

Basically there are 3 main reasons why your comment gives traffic :

  • You are the first one to comment
  • You have valuable comment that stole many visitors attention, or
  • You have eye catching post title and put comment on commentluv enabled blogs

What about guest blogging? I don’t do guest blogging recently so I can’t talk a lot about it in here.

  6. Hi Okto,
    Your post is very informative and simple to understand especially for those who are new to blogging and are searching for ways on how to gain traffic the right way. I agree that when commenting on blogs, you get traffic from them when you leave valuable comments and/or when you have a catchy blog post title to show on your commentluv link. It’s a plus if you’re the first one to comment on another blogger’s blog post, but as long as you leave valuable and insightful comments, for sure other people will be interested in going to your own blog, and that will help in making your traffic grow more.

      Hi Felicia,

      Thanks so much for your support. Yup, commentluv enabled blogs can be a nice ways to get targeted traffic through blog commenting. Thanks for sharing your voices here :D

  7. Okto – Just LOVE LOVE LOVE that title! It actually gives a sudden boost to any blogger who’s thinking about giving up!

    You know, when I started my blog(s), the only sources of traffic for me was social media (was top before, not now) and search engines (was second best before, but the best right now). Hardly had more than 10 email subscribers!! But I continued what I wanted – and here it is :) All going good, and I have no limits of hopes!

    Cheers to this and again – the title rocks! :)
