How to Increase Your Blog Traffic From Google Search

Posted in: , ,

As you can see from the picture, my biggest traffic on this blog comes from Google Search. The google.com search brings traffic three times either those from Twitter or Facebook, my next biggest traffic sources. Then there's also google.co.uk, .com.ng, and other localized results. In fact, Google organic search traffic is responsible for up to 70% of my traffic, and because they are relevant, most of those new visitors end up coming again and again.

 I am not a guru yet, and I have to be honest and tell you increased traffic did not happen for me overnight. It took a lot of luck, chance, and hard work. Not just writing on the blog, but also looking underneath the hood, reading articles on SEO and blogging, making google search my friend, reading the blogger forums, tweaking and re-tweaking my blog template, focusing or widening my niche, etc.

So how do you get traffic from Google? Before you do anything, you have to know that it is imperative that you first have great content on your blog. Also, the more numerous they are, the more chances you have of appearing in Google search results. And the longer your blog has been online, and the more relevant visitors find it, the more likely it is that google will start ranking you high. Before you know it, you will be ranking on the first page, and maybe even at #1. And then the traffic will start pouring in.


First steps to start you on your way;

Make sure you're logged on to your blog, then go to

  6. Errr, now that we know where most of your hits come from, can you please stop clogging my facebook notification with posts you put on pages I'm a fan of such as bellanaija, wimbiz etc It's very exhausting. You've been around too long for this nonsense. Do you see Bellanaija, Lindaikeji or even Ladun do that? Gee

  9. Much safer from buying from an individual you dont recognize.
    You can have all updates about your favorite artists and his scheduled concerts by just checking concert venues and schedules
    online on the site from which you have booked your tickets.
    If you are lucky enough, you will get yourself discounted
    concert tickets which means you can attend concerts and at a cheaper rate.


    Look into my webpage - tickettyme.tumblr.com

  10. This is a very lovely post, and like she said, she isn't an expert with SEO. The issue here is that before you can get Google traffic, you need to have submitted your blog to search engines, check: http://www.allbloggingcoach.com/2013/09/how-to-submit-and-verify-your-blog-with.html . Then if you have adsense monetization on your blog, then you need to start longing for US traffic, which you can get by reading this: http://www.allbloggingcoach.com/2014/02/how-to-drive-USA-traffic-to-your-blog.html this are classic and research ways of flying your blog's high
