4 Ways to Generate Traffic From Your Guest Posts

Everyone knows how to write guest posts. Even you do I’m guessing, that’s why you’re reading this post. One thing I learned by writing 7 or 8 guest posts last month is that writing them is not enough.

You have to get traffic from it as well to your blog. Otherwise, why even bother to write them in the first place.

Well, here are some few simple tips which you may have missed while writing your guest posts.

1. Linking Back to your Blog

This is the most easiest and simple mistake one can make. Even if you do have your blog link in the author info box, but it will not be enough.

The thing is if the read loves your guest posts extraordinarily well, then only they will visit your blog using that link.

Sometimes, the reader may even miss that there is a link to your blog. Why ? Because people don’t read on the internet, they scan through everything. So, if you have a post on your blog that matches with the keywords in your guest post, you should link back to it.

2. Interlinking your Guest Posts

You want to expand your reach, right ? That’s why you’re guest posting. Well, this is the most effective way to do it.

Interlinking your guest posts kind of works in a cycle. Everyone benefits from it, the blog author who allowed you to guest post and you as well. It increases your familiarity with the readers.

If, the readers see that you have multiple guest posts on multiple authority sites, then they will start to take you more seriously.

3. Marketing your Guest Posts

I think one should heavily market their guest posts. Why ? Because you want more attention and you’re not getting it alone. Sharing your guest posts heavily on social media sites and bookmarking sites is the most simplest and easiest way to get attention.

Some people just neglect to marketing their guest posts because they think that writing on a high authority sites is enough. But the truth is, it’s not enough.

Yeah, sure the blog owner will market it anyway. But you should do it too. Inviting people to read your guest posts is very important.

4. Replying to All Comments

I assume that you generally write guest posts on CommentLuv enabled blogs.

If you do, then things got hell of a lot easier for you.

Even if you have to reply to as little as 10 or 20 comments, think about how many article links you can show to hundreds of readers of that blog. You are bound to get some traffic from them.

Conclusion

These are the things which come to my mind right now. I will update this post if something new comes up.

  2. Hey Lahaul,

    I like your new blog. Got a nice ring to it. Lionblogger….ROAR! Great color combo. The black, red, white and gray power combo :). Yeah so many people don’t interlink their guest post with is a mistake. It can really help your seo efforts and just looks good from a readers standpoint. On the topic of web 2.0 watch out for linkwheels or hiring people to do them. Spun content and low quality links to them are a waste of time. I do get a number of guest post and people don’t even respond to their post on my blog. Wow huge mistake but thanks for the content!

    • Hey Garen,
      Welcome to my new blog. None of this would have been possible if it weren’t for your giveaway. :) I don’t have to worry about anything for a year. That’s a relief.
      I normally don’t use web 2.0 as Wade suggested, maybe sometime in the future. Right now, I’m only focusing on social media and content marketing.
      Thanks for commenting. :)

  3. This is a very informative post. What do you recommend for attracting guest bloggers to a “personal” blog. My blog doesn’t have a specific niche. It consists of random things that’s on my mind, or even my real life social activities.

    • This post was for writing guest posts. However, if you want to attract guest bloggers to your site you first have to write some guest post on other blogs. You have to gain some authority in the blogosphere and you got to have more traffic. If you don’t have a high traffic then people aren’t going to guest post on your blog. My advice is start improving your Alexa rank first, because that’s where most people look first.

  5. Hey Seth ,
    I have loved your articles on my blog.
    Thanks for underlining those little things we neglect that are able to increase traffic to our blogs. Though few blog owners will not accept more than 2 links within the articles, most will accept links to other blog posts (not affiliate links)

    Hope to get more from you!
