Writing quality blog posts which attracts readers and makes readers share your blog posts with their friends and family.
Then when he shares your blog post to them through any social media, and when someone visits through that share.
Google records a signal that people from other social platforms are visiting your website and by looking at that google gives your website a boost.

Have you ever searched for breakfast to prepare in a few minutes? And then the site takes a lot of time to load and then you open another Website?
Did you just understand that This could even happen with your visitors and they would visit another site.
If your page loads in 2 seconds then it is good but if your page loads in 1 second then this is best. What if your page takes 3-5 seconds to lead?
Improve your page speed right now, What can be the reason to slow down your page loading speed?
Optimise your images, create cached files, clear unnecessary css and js, change your hosting provider or do whatever which is needed.
Install free plugins or make the changes which are important and uninstall unnecessary plugins and that will help load your page faster.
3. Customise your website design and fonts.
Do you know? There are a lot of Websites which I have visited and they look totally messed up with a untidy look having different fonts and colors on their page.
It is very tough to find their pages and uncomfortable to read their content. so,
Having your website a primary font and secondary font is necessary. Having the same size of headline, paragraph and sub heads on every page is also important.
Having one colour for one link and another color for another link makes the reader confused about which is the exact link, it also looks totally messed up.
Also keeping the font size of Headline, paragraph and sub heads different makes it look weird.
So by having the correct and best color suitable for your blog and keeping the font size the same on every page, gives your website and blog posts a professional look.
Even do you know the most popular Websites with a lot of readers, their site is clear and simple and you can use the site easily.
The reason it is important to look at fonts and colours is when the site has unnecessary colours, it makes the look uncomfortable for the reader to read and the reader moves on to another Website.
So, by keeping an eye on your fonts and Website design and color also matter a lot to attract more readers, which then helps you grow your blog.
4. Guest posting.
For a new site or a site with low number of domain authority the chances are low to get ranked based on their domain authority.
To increase domain authority you need to build authority by building links from high authority sites and creating cornerstone content
which attracts a lot of readers.
So, when you write a guest post to a website/ blog with high authority, then when you link back to your website, then the readers from that site visits your sites and which increases your traffic.
When Google finds that you have a link from a website which has a high domain, Google increases your domain authority.
With that you also bring visitors to site and grow your domain authority,
by growing your domain authority google displays your content/blog posts high on search engines, as the content is from high authority site (your blog/site).
It also helps you build relationships with the other website and their team, which further helps you do business with them.
Want to write a guest post?
Here are quick steps.
- Head over to keyword tools like ubersuggest and put in your competitors url or Website in your niche.
- Look at the website Linking back to their website.
- Find their email on linkedin or other social media.
- E-mail them that you want to write a guest post.
- Write a post if approved.
100 out of 40 will not even read your emails and only 10% will get approved, if you are a new blog or website then less number of websites would accept guest posts.
Try to reach more Websites and start growing your blog and build a healthy relationship.
5. Seo optimise your website.
Many websites get a lot of traffic and the majority of the traffic comes from Search engines.

6. Drive traffic from social media to your blog.
Social media also helps you get traffic to your blog. Having a high and engaging social media profile is very important.
If you are a starting blog/business, start doing social media marketing side by side. As, if you put any post or updates on social media, you will get a ton response on that.
Many people and the majority of the young ones are very active on social media, and so your targeted audience also should be on social media.
The posts and tweets on social media get a lot of retweets and shares. which also helps you get your content seen by the other people who are not aware of your business/blog.
As you build a great following on social media and when you get a good number of traffic from social media, google ranks you higher, because of traffic from other social networks.
It helps you boost your site ranking, which ranks you and also gets you more visitors.
If you have not started social media marketing, just start it now, and make people aware of your business or blog.
Many people like video content, create a YouTube channel and upload videos in your channel and also put them in your blog posts.
While starting, keeping focus on such platforms helps you rank higher, as YouTube is also on Google. It also satisfies the readers with your video, who likes to watch video content.
Many people just like getting information through videos and they don’t read much articles and written content.
By this the people only hanging around video content on YouTube will also know about your business/ blog and you can make them aware of your services there.
7. Post consistently.
Writing best quality posts and publishing them consistently will help you get traffic.
When you keep posting blog posts consistently on your website, the first thing is, your post gets viewed by more people than before.
And then also you get readers coming to your site again and again as there is more Content.
Second, when you get some readers and when there are a good number of blogs on your website,
