Episode 31: 5 Tips to Increase Blog Traffic

November 2, 2017
Insanely hectic traffic situation in Savusavu Fiji


Since I know none of you are interested in boosting your blog traffic I recorded this short podcast on a wing and a prayer.


I hope somebody listens to it.


Because I know few bloggers care at all about increasing their blog traffic.


The only thing that seems as uninteresting a topic is how to make money through blogging.


Anyway, for the 3 bloggers who want to figure out how to increase their blog traffic, here’s the podcast.

  1. Keeping at it is big Nicholas. Also, following 1-2 blogging mentors. That was the difference maker for me. I finally listened to pros, vibed higher, stuck to proven tactics, and traffic and profits began to increase over time. Being patient is where it’s at though. Gotta see this through. I am happy things are turning for you. Awesome!

  2. Nicholas C. Says:

    I have finally gotten a significant amount of traffic coming to my blog, but it’s taken almost two years. It’s hard to figure out what you’re doing at first when you have no clue how this whole thing works. The key really is to keep at it and not give up. Success is always around the corner and failure is always the easy way out. Thanks for the post.

  3. Exactly Karthik. This is a gradual, patient, steady build up we all experience in the blog traffic generating game. Thanks for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Karthik Says:


    That was a nice idea to showcase a podcast on some amazing tips. “Patience grasshopper”. Patience is very important for our blogging life. You cannot simply get the desired traffic in a short period of time. It all takes some months or maybe even years. Everything is a gradual buildup. You just gotta have fun writing your blogs.

  5. Investing in your blogging education makes your life easier Susan. You gain confidence and clarity in your direction by learning from pros through their premium courses. Have a great week ahead.

  6. Good deal Mehedi. Keep on keeping on bro.

  7. Mehedi Hasan Says:

    That made me chuckle. Yes its staying in for the long haul and statute all the right things. Well and there is that hard operating portion too. Always to your liking unquestionable advice to be found here Ryan. Always appreciated.

  8. Susan Velez Says:

    Hi Ryan,

    You’re definitely correct, patience is the key. I personally think that investing in your blogging education is extremely important. It’s no different than investing in your education to get a better job.

    We have to be willing to keep learning and growing. The only way we can do that is if we’re willing to invest in our online education.

    I make it a point to follow 3 people who teach you how to do things the right way. That’s actually why I am following some of the methods that you teach.

    Thanks for sharing this advice. I have no doubt that anyone who follows it will be able to drive traffic to their blog.

    Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Amen to that Dave. You are killing it because your energy has always been in the right place.

  10. “Blog mainly for fun.” I love it. I started my blog only as a hobby, and I think that’s why I’ve gotten web traffic in the long run. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great tips!!

  11. Good stuff Farrell. Gaining a little paid boost is smart. Keep on keeping on bro.

  12. Farrell Says:

    Yo Ryan, I know my style is not good, but I spend some cash for ads just to get some initial traffic. I do not overspend though. My aim is to build a small audience who are interested right away and then start to grow from there. I still have to learn a lot of stuff to improve my website’s daily engagement and your tips gave me new ideas to work on. Cool post as usual!

  13. Exactly Suze. We all have our skill sets, so learn from other pros in certain areas and offer your expertise too, to serve others.

  14. Suze Says:

    I agree that patience really is key, even though I don’t have much of it ;-). Having other bloggers as mentors is very helpful too and I’d say that we can’t expect to be experts in all areas so we might be able to teach others about an aspect like YouTube while they could teach us about Pinterest!

  15. Awesome Rhonda. You are doing an inspired job as it is over on Albom Adventures.

  16. Rhonda Albom Says:

    The 5 tips are gold. One day I will be able to snatch the pebble.

  17. Well done Shantanu. Your commenting campaign is epic bro. Enjoy that cup of coffee and chat soon.

  18. I needed to hear it too Julie ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. Awesome mags. I have dabbled SEO-wise a bit recently and it feels fun. Good move too on attending conferences and following mentors.

  20. Mags Nixon Says:

    Great advice. I’ve been focusing on SEO of late & re-writing old blog posts so now that I (hopefully) know what to do with SEO, I’m hoping to start driving some traffic that way. I came back from a blogging conference full of newfound knowledge! AND yes content is key – it’s still not easy to get content up quick enough though! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your idea of following 3 mentors – definitely going to do this. Thanks again

  21. Julie Jane Says:

    โ€œPatience grasshopperโ€. I needed to hear that today…..sometimes it feels like a long road, with little progress! I know we just need to stick with it. Thanks!

  22. Hello Ryan,

    Good one over here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Indeed every one wants that their blogs should get huge horde of traffic to their web site or blogs so that they can achieve
    for what they are into this business, definitely sounds easy but not that easy.

    I am oinning it down so that when I am done with my work today I can enjoy it in the evening with a cup of coffe ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the share.


  23. I always work in that patience line whenever I can Sue ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for listening and commenting.

  24. Sue Says:
