Are you busy blogging, but it doesn’t get you anywhere? Then you probably place your writings in the wrong place. On LinkedIn and Facebook for example. Or on your own website. That does not work yet, as long as you do not have a lot of traffic yet. Maybe your partner and your mother are reading your blog. Because they love you. But the rest of the world does not know that you exist. Blogging on your own channels is a long-term strategy. And the long run, blogging will deliver visitors to your website. But you only get that traffic after a while.
Even if you really give very good information and write smoothly, you get a maximum of ten visitors a day to your website with a blog. And then you do it well because many times there are only ten per week or even per month.
But how do you get visitors to your blog right from the start?
One of the possibilities is to write an article for someone else’s site. You call that guest blogging. Such a guest blog you write specifically for another site with the sole purpose of attracting traffic to your own website via that other site.
This only works if you select a frequently visited site. And by busy, I mean blogs with several thousand visitors a day. There are well-visited blogs for every discipline. My website doesn’t attract 1000 visitors a day, yet, but I do get about 300-400 visitors a week.
A good guest blog also provides extra support for the host or hostess. That is why the chance is very high website owners allow you to write a guest article. Great blogs have always a shortage of articles and an extra blog also helps them.
But your main reason for guest blogging is of course that you can attract more visitors to your own site. You are not a philanthropic institution.
How do you manage traffic from the guest site to your website?
Usually, you can include a profile bio of yourself under a guest blog with links to your own site. Then lead people to your giveaway if they are relevant to the reader. Because when they are on your own list, you can now send them your own blog updates and offers. In a guest blog, you can also link to articles on your own site, as background information. It’s up to your host how many links they allow, so don’t overdo it.
You can also link to your own guest blog on your own site after placement. Keep your content unique, on your website and on the website where you place your guest blog. However, there is a way how you can share your own blog on your website too without duplicating the content. You are able to share it in a PDF, read more about how to do this here.
Some blogs allow you to put the article on your own site a few days or weeks after publication. That saves you a lot of paperwork. However, you need to adjust the words in your blog, otherwise, Google sees your blogs as duplicate content and that makes you less attractive to their search engines.
Share the original article on the site of your host, in your newsletter and via social media. With that, you help the blog that offers you a platform. And it helps you too. Because blogging on a large and well-known blog not only ensures that you get more visitors to your website. It also ensures that your expert status and brand awareness grows.
