Convert visitors into loyal readers now:

So, even if your blog was getting a lot of visitors earlier and somehow fails to get now, so here are the best tips of getting your visitors back to your blog once again.

Building up Subscribers:

Instead of jumping over Adsense ad and getting a mere click from there, it is always better to get a lot of visitors by enabling them to subscribe at your blog. It is always recommendable not to hamper the quality of your content by putting an ad over it. It is better to put ad either in other pages or at the sidebar of your blog. Your content should serve only two purposes. First of all, to impress your readers, they found it interesting and informative and let them like your blog. The second most purpose would be to have them at your RSS feed.

  2. Hi Aditi, Social media is definitely the future of internet marketing…SEO is slowly dying and with Google taking stringent measures to fight spam in the extensive world wide web, businesses which are on the right side are also getting affected…Depending on search traffic is no more practical because the fluctuations are too steep to ignore…Social media on the other hand is more simple and has potential to deliver phenomenal boost in traffic.

    1. Yes Joe, you are right social media has definitely gained a much significant position and also helps to set up a platform to interact with lots of visitors at a time. That’s a great deal indeed. Thanks for your feedback!!

    1. Yes, I think content that you are updating at your blog need to be written for your visitors and not for the search engine. This could easily help your blog to gain more number of visitors at your blog. Thanks for sharing your valuable feedback with us!!

  8. Hi Aditi, your post is great, I liked the information given in it. This is very true that every one would like to get visitors to their site and this post will be a great guide to all.

  9. To make your visitors to come back is not easy.You need to have a good relevant content and on the top f the that you need to multiple strategies as discussed in this article.I find incresing the subscribers as the most effective strategy for my blog..Facebook is become less relevant now because they are now interested in paid campaigns and your are posts are shared with very few of the people who liked your facebook page….

  10. While commenting on this post, I happened to remember Anchit’s remarks yesterday in Facebook.

    “Do you guys think blogs about blogging have become saturated? I went through a few top notch blogs and all I could find is same things repeated again and again with catchy titles and twisted lines and stuff.”

    We discussed for a while on this question but we had to agree that same content is re-iterated with new and catchy title.

    So, if you want to compel your visitors to come back to your blog repeatedly, you should minimize the repetition of message or topic in posts. If you can keep up with fresh post ideas, you’re readers will love to revisit your blog, otherwise, they’ll feel that they already got whatever is available.

  11. Hi Aditi and Shriram,
    I have a question regarding returning visitors, I hope you guys won’t mind me asking here πŸ™‚
    I get around 100-150 returning visitors daily on my 20post old blog, should I set up RSS feed, and if yes, then is there any way to see their number ?

    1. Hi Charlie,
      Google+ is a great source to get traffic. You are correct many groups were flooded with links. You can get some more traffic and money by building email list.

  12. Visitors will turn into loyal readers only when you provide them with a regular dose of fresh and informative content. Also the site design plays a very important role in transforming a visitor to your blog into a regular reader.

  13. Hey Aditi,

    This is really off the hook. A compelling and insightful post indeed! I’m glad to have come across this evening that I’m feeling bored. It draws happiness back to my countenance.

    Thanks for sharing, sister!


  14. Hi

    The tricks above are definitely going to ensure you have a follower in terms of the visitor.. I would like to add that if a blogger wishes to get more followers then follow up or continued post series can make the visitor come back to the website again and again..

  15. Great post, but there were a couple of things that REALLY resonated with me. First off, I’ve gradually settled into a very conversational tone on my blog and have become rather comfortable being myself, for better or worse. In fact, since I’ve changed it over into a personal blog (from a strictly entrepreneaurial site), my number one challenge has been finding a way to keep it about my readers. The major takeaway I got from this post, however, is the idea that you need to hold your readers hand and instruct them what to do next. That’s so subtle but brilliant all at once. How would you go about engaging with your audience in the context of a personal blog? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

  16. Social media is definitely playing an important role in internet marketing. Depending on search traffic is no more practical because the fluctuations are too steep to ignore. Social media on the other hand is more simple and has potential to deliver boost in traffic.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.

    1. Well said Baibhav. With Google stalking websites with its animal updates, one can use social media effectively to drive traffic to his websites.

  17. Social media platforms are a best way to promote the website traffic, but to promote the traffic a website needs to have high quality contents. Contents are the reason that users use the internet and if a website would offer poor contents, then the users always have substitute websites. Contents are called king for a reason. If we would offer quality contents in both the social media plate forms and the website then the audience will be back for more information. But in addition to quality contents, a website also needs to have fast loading speed and a responsive design, because Google give more weight to the applications with fast loading speed and a responsive design.
