There’s literally countless ways to increase blog traffic once you’ve published some content.
It doesn’t matter if you’re buying the traffic from a reputable source or driving it to your blog/landing page via SEO methods, this one simple strategy works time and time again.
In this post we’ll go through the 4 steps to one sure way to get more targeted traffic that increases over time.
I won’t BS you though.
You really have to put in a little effort to get this going. There isn’t any one click button software that will do all the work for you……sorry 😉
Simple Repurposing Your Content For Increase Blog Traffic Method
Some call it “refurbishing content”, which is the same thing. It also was referred to as Web 2.0, but it’s all pretty much the same idea.
The idea is to first publish your best stuff, let it get indexed and found on the search engines.
Then later identify which posts on your site get the most traffic and then create simplified versions on popular platforms linked back to your main blog.
This will help drive traffic back to your main site.
Identify your most popular, most engaged content.
How to do this is pretty simple. If you’re using WordPress, there are a lot of free cool plug-ins that you can use to evaluate your highest converting pages.
Getting legitimate comments and responding to them is also a great measurement tool.
Simplify and repurpose the content.
You can create a slideshow, PDF or even a short video on whatever subject your content is about.
Take the highlights of your post and make a slideshow. You can use Google’s free Slideshow creator
You can also create short videos and upload them to a YouTube channel and other video platforms.
Publish on Popular Platforms.

Track and Measure Referral Metrics
Number of viewed pages. Amount of time spent on site. Bounce rate and then conversions.
Tracking these metrics will help you to focus on what blog posts are getting the most traffic and therefore you can build from that information.
Here are some of the tools I use for effective blogging.
Namecheap is a great place to register a domain name for any type of blog.
This web site tool is a great go-to if you want to find a domain name that already is getting searches in the search engines.
Use “Keyword Researcher” to discover high-value Long-Tail Keywords from Google AutoComplete. It optimizes, filters and gives you what search phrases you can rank for all automatically. (basically saves you a lot of time and headache)
