You Have an Awesome Blog, What Next?

Profile photo of Riza [Moderator] Submitted by Riza [Moderator] February 17, 2014 Website :

Have you ever wondered how bloggers make money blogging? When I say money, I don’t mean a 100$ per month… or have you ever wondered how other bloggers get traffic to their site and you barely get 50 unique visitors per day? Or have you ever wondered how bloggers post subsequently for months and years without ever giving up or having that dreadful disease called “writer’s block”? If you have been having these questions running through your mind for long, keep calm because some of the questions might be answered in this blog post, so do continue reading.

Still in “memory” lane – I still remembered the first time I created my first ever website, that was back in 2009. Then, I did know the basic of having a site and all but I seriously did not know much about blog promotion or how to make money with my blog. Heck, I did not even know if alexa or Google page rank exist, funny right? That was because I never had a mentor when I started out my blogging journey…

    Traffic and coming up with post on a frequent basis is one major challenge most bloggers face. When i began blogging i had same until i found a simple solution to writer’s block.

    I learnt to schedule posts ahead of time, that way i will have ample time on my hand to make new researches and to promote my blog for more traffic. You have clearly preferred solutions and i must say they are great ones and any blogger that follows these ideas will most definitely improve both traffic and post quality and the frequency of publication.

    Great post you have here. indeed, traffic generation is very important but it can be a little bit difficult to get the desired traffic.
    I use most of the traffic generation methods shared in this post and I can say they work pretty well.
    Forums and Q&A are great places to generate new blog post ideas, I prefer Q&A sites because it is easy to search and post ideas just keep flowing.

    Hello Babanature,

    This is a super insightful post: blogging is by no means a simple task and any ideas about traffic and monetization must be taken very seriously for these are the two most important pillars of blogging!

    While I agree with all the traffic sources mentioned here, I am not very comfortable with StumbleUpon. While my Analytics report show that I get quite a decent traffic from there, it also indicates that that traffic has the highest bounce rate and lowest engagement rates amongst all the other traffic sources!

    Facebook (especially targeted Facebook groups) are great and I cannot forget G+ in a second! Entries shared there get indexed as quickly as 3 minutes and that means the traffic starts flowing straight away!

    Great entry I must say…however, you failed to mentioned Kingged is where I found this article and it has been a very great traffic source for me in the past weeks.

    Hi Babanature,
    That was an insightful post indeed ( just as Terungwa has remarked). A lot of us went into blogging forgetting the basics.

    Little wonder the impact is not there. However, its good we have time to correct some of the mistakes done before started.

    Thankfully, posts like this take us back to the basics! I think every blogger ( newbie and experts) needs to read this post.

    Hi Riza,
    Thanks for posting this link to Babanture’s article. I found some things to put on my to do list. I have been writing for a while . . . but it’s time I get out and promote. That is a priority for me in 2014, so this is a great post.

    Yes you’re right being on all these social networks and bookmarking sites would surely make your blog awesome, and who wouldn’t want that! But the only problem I come across is how can one be on all of these places always. I do try my best and I am on most of the ones you mentioned but I still have to find time for forums and question/answers.
    Pinterest is another great addition to the above where your posts stay for the longest period of time, so if you are not there – you surely miss out on a lot of traffic too. Stumbleupon is great too, and they have tribe on Triberr where you can join and reciprocate each others visits too. I think the more you do, the better it is for you and your blog.

      Thanks for your contributions to Kingged, Amit, but this is obviously ANOTHER spammy “generic” type of comments that will either get deleted or disavowed. It adds nothing of value to this post, beyond just increasing your comments count.

      You are supposed to read the original post on the blog and leave valuable and relevant comments, not spammy generic comments like this.

      Please note that comments like this will be deleted or disavowed by the moderating team. And if they persist, you might get disqualified from the daily cash giveaway altogether!


      [EDIT] We have decided NOT to delete the above spam comment, but to leave it so others can see what happens when they makes spam comments. We will find out and call you out!
