East Cape of New Zealand today. I could shoot this country from a freaking sewer and it’d still be stunning.

 

No.

 

From a genuine perspective, absolutely not.

 

I do not horse shit you. Like it or not.

 

Writing and publishing more blog posts does not guarantee you see more blog traffic.

 

BUT……(and it’s bigger than an elephant butt)…..

 

  • writing and publishing more blog posts mainly from a fun, loving detached energy guarantees more blog traffic
  • writing and publishing more, targeted, carefully thought out, helpful, insightful blog posts guarantees more blog traffic

 

BUT……(and it’s bigger than a whale butt)…..

 

it ain’t quality over quantity….it is *energy* over everything, including quality and quantity and all logical concepts flowing through the limited mind.

 

My Day Today

 

I spent all day Saturday – today – being driven around the mesmerizing East Cape of New Zealand. Picture Pandora from the movie Avatar. Then take it up 15 notches. This place, literally, is out of this world. Unreal scenery, far beyond anywhere on planet earth.

 

Anyway….I wrote and published a blog post on my blog today, and I wrote and published a guest post on Blogging Tips today, and I am writing and publishing this post. 3 blog posts before 5 PM and I spent 5 hours touring New Zealand. Toss in a 45 minute dog walk and most mere mortals wonder: how does Cyborg Ryan do it?

 

Simple.

 

I raise my energy really really high through meditation, yoga and by diving into my fears, I blog mainly from energies of love and fun, and those words and blog posts flow freely. I give no thought to blog post quantity, or quality. Bleh. Meh. Who cares? Honestly; who gives a rat’s rump if I think to myself, “Lemme make sure I write X number of *quality* blog posts today”, right?

 

See how mind and ego are robotic morons?

 

But see how doing things from the heart-love-intuition helps you be incredibly prolific despite not trying to be prolific?

 

THIS is how to drive oodles of phenomenally qualified, targeted traffic aka “human beings who love your message” to your blog.

 

Writing “more” posts means nothing.

 

Hell; even pulling back to write one in-depth, 3,000 word long post means little if your energy sucks. Most bloggers follow this strategy from a “not good enough” predominant energy, ensuring that no matter what they do, they cannot outrun their “not good enough” energy, and sure enough, they struggle blogging-wise for years.

 

But a few select bloggers follow their passion, raise their vibe really high, dive into fears and blog mainly to solve problems, blogging from a heart-centered space, and give no thoughts to concepts like “quality” or “quantity” or “frequency”, instead blogging from an abundant, detached, unbound space.

 

My Process For This Post

 

I opened Quora.

 

First question in the “blogs” category:

 

How can I get more visitors to my blog? My blog is just 4 months old and I update it every day?

 

This newbie blogger falls prey to a common error; I am a new blogger (fear I am too new aka not experienced enough) and need to see more traffic (fear I do not get enough traffic) even though I am updating it every day (I fear that even though I publish posts daily I still don’t see enough traffic).

 

I sense great fear in you, Young Skywalker.

 

So I write this post from my heart, for fun, with love, detailing how the concept of “more” posts does not result in greater traffic if you give not thought and awesome energy to the message conveyed and how the concept of “quality” blog posts does not result in greater blog traffic if you blog mainly from a fearful, “not enough” energy.

 

If Young Padawan has this blogging problem, and shares it on Quora, 400,000 other bloggers have a similar problem. Namely because I’ve been notified of this problem 400,000 times during the past decade I’ve spent online. Cheating, I know, but it’s one benefit of being incredibly persistent with your blog. You see problems and connect the blogging dots with lightning speed.

    Hi there Ryan,

    Today I read like 15 other blog posts, but truth to be spoken (regards to all other bloggers) is the one that actually made me smile.

    You are great for cutting through the bullshit, and giving the audience exactly what they want. A simple answer.

    Even though blogging frequency doesn’t increase website traffic directly, it is good for brand awareness and actually the more pages you have on your website, the more authoritative you seem to Google (not mentioning the benefits of interlinking to other posts).

    Cheers,

    Melos

    Hi Ryan,

    There was a time when blog post frequency may have worked or maybe it can still work for news blogs. But where we are standing, we have to focus on evergreen content. Evergreen content has to be build up with using skyscraper technique and it must be engaging.

    I believe that rather than blog post frequency what matter is that how engaging your content is. The simple thing is that you cannot expect every single post to rank high in SERP, but if you focus on targeted audience and write for them then it will be easy for you.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Yes Gaurav, perfect. Engagement counts most. If readers love your content so much that they comment on it and share it, you will increase your blog traffic and grow your business. Keen insight brother.

    Hi Ryan,

    Blog post frequency doesn’t improve your traffic. But it will improve our content reachability & spread information about the blog. As far as I know, you are one of the best who knows very well how to handle blogs and enjoy the life. I admire the way you are living.

    All the best,

      Much appreciated Manoj. When writing helpful posts and being abundant and generous, we do see greater visibility for sure buddy.

    Posting more frequently can give you a temporary boost in traffic maybe. But as Ryan says, engagement is key.

    You have to get people to spend time on your site and ideally comment on your content. Invite them to do it and respond to them.

    Yes, it is time-consuming. But the best way to grow a blog is to interact. You want to encourage regular visitors and to do that, you have to reciprocate.

    Visit their blogs and comment. Share what they write and retweet and comment on what they share online. Maybe tag or @tweet them when a post you know they’d be interested in post you publish.

    Relationships are what matter. And building those will lead to more traffic.

      Agreed fully Gail. The power of engaging is quite miraculous, when we are patient, persistent and generous.
