10 Ways To Double Your Page Views

 Do you have a blog?  If so, how long have you been blogging?  I’ve been blogging here on ClassyYetTrendy.com since July 2014.  I have learned a lot along the way.  I’ve found techniques that work and some that don’t.  I have used these exact 10 techniques to more than double my page views…
10 Ways To Double Your Page Views

How To Start a Blog In 3 Easy Steps

1.  Have an Attention Grabbing Post Title: Depending the type of blog you have, be creative with your post title.  My most popular post was “How To Wear a Blanket Scarf”, which has generated over 17,000 page views alone!  Most of the traffic this post comes from is Pinterest (I’ll discuss Pinterest in just a bit).  Use phrases such as “How To”, “Why” or “Where”.  Numbers are also attention grabbers like this post title, “10 Ways”.
2.  Write a Post Everyday: The more you contribute to your blog, the more people will be interested in what you have to say.  Everytime you write a post, you make your internet presence known.  When first started blogging, I read that the longer you have your blog and the more posts you write, the more readers you will have.  That is true!
3.  Post Quality Pictures:  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and it’s true!  What you have to say is important, but a picture is a first impression.  If the pictures are great, then everything else is easy.  You don’t have to be a professional photographer.  Just make sure your pictures clear and expresses your post subject.
4.  Have a Pinnable Image In Your Post and Post It On Pinterest:   Did you know there are over 70 million users on Pinterest?*  That’s why it’s important to have at least one pinnable image in your blog post.  A popular subject with fashion bloggers is sharing their favorite sale picks.  Instead of listing them individually, you could create a collage and copy and paste all the images to a picture, add a title, and voila, instant Pinnable image!  Also, post that image to one of you boards on Pinterest.  When a person pins that image to their board, then their followers pin the image to their boards, then, well, you get the point, your post just may go viral like my “How To Wear a Blanket Scarf” did!  I would recommend installing a snippet of code from Pinterest to your blog’s main page, so when a reader hovers over any image, Pinterest’s red “P” appears and will let readers pin any image from your blog to their Pinterest boards.
5.  Post to Social Media Everyday: I use Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Bloglovin’.  I post to these everyday!  Readers who use social media will see your blog posts.  They might not go directly to your blog, but if you post to social media, they will be reminded of your blog posts there and will click through to your blog.
6. Add Your Posts to Stumbleupon, Buzzfeed, Reddit and Digg:  These are content reader networks.  I would recommend adding your blog posts to all these sites everyday.  They may not generate as much traffic as Social Media but they are contributors to your blog traffic.
7. Participate In Giveaways: Since I have participated in a few giveaways, my social media followers and blog traffic has increased tremendously!  The giveaways I have participated in are Instagram Loop Giveaways and Blog Post Giveaways.  The Instagram Loop Giveaways are only on Instagram.  The Blog Post Giveaways build all your social media following.  Here’s how it works: You pay on average $20-$40 to participate.  The amount depends on the prize to be given away and the number of participants who contribute.  The giveaway host will collect the money, create an image, the giveaway rules, the start and end time of the giveaway, and will host the rafflecopter (or other entry) app.   Then the giveaway host has the entry app pick a winner and they will contact the winner about their prize.  Do you research first and make sure you are pariticipating in a legitimate giveaway.  I would recommend the #Girlbosses group on Facebook for Instagram Loop Giveaways (it’s a closed group so you’ll need to request to be added) and Oh My Gosh Beck for social media blog post giveaways.
8.  Add Your Post To Link Ups or Blog Hops:  This is how I generate a lot of my traffic.  Some bloggers will host link ups or blog hops usually one day a week.  Since my blog is about mainly about fashion, beauty and recipes, I join link ups on these subjects.  There are many link ups out there on the web!  Readers of the link ups will see your post and may click on your post and go to your blog!  This is not only free advertising, but a great way to connect with other bloggers!  On Wednesdays, I host the Trendy Wednesday fashion and beauty linkup.  On Fridays, I host the Mix It Up Friday link up, which is just about anything (fashion, beauty, home decor, crafts, DIY, recipes, lifestyle, etc).  If you have a fashion blog, check out my fashion link up list to see where I add my posts each week.
9.  Be a Link Up or Blog Hop Co-Host: This is a great way to increase exposure to your blog!  Some link up hosts will allow co-hosting, so the same link up list will be on the host’s blog and your blog as well.  If you’re new to blogging, it’s a great way to get your blog noticed.  It’s a great way to build repeat followers too.
10. Comment on Other Blogs:  When you visit another blog, comment on their blog and be sure to leave your name, your blog name and your blog URL (website address).  Readers will read the comment and can click through to your blog.  Instant blog traffic!
I hope you enjoyed these tips!  I hope you will double your page views as I have done by using these tips.  I can’t guarantee that you will, but I personally have used these tips and they have worked for me.

  1. Leanne, I found you and this post at The Winthrop Chronicles' Share It Link Party. Thanks for sharing such good information- some I have missed or need to be reminded of! 🙂

  2. I never thought about adding my posts to BuzzFeed…I'm now looking into it! 🙂

    Thanks for joining the Link Up this week!

  3. Thank you for these tips! I am going to get to work on some of there. I read I shouldn't be posting daily, but you make a valid point! I also read an article last night to cut out all social media, which I thought was crazy. Geez glad someone is giving good advice. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Oh my goodness, I can't believe an article said to cut out social media! Your posting schedule depends on your amount of free time to spend on your blog. I use to post three times a week and now I post five days a week.

    Leanne.

  5. I just started blogging in January 2015, so I really appreciate your advice. I have done some of these things already, so it's good to know that I'm on the right track. 🙂 #TuesdayTips&Tricks

  6. Very well said and all very good tips. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with everything going on and it's a good to remember the steps we should be following. Thank you.

    Have a lovely rest of the week!

  7. I found your post through Tips & Tricks for this week. I didn't contribute this week, but decided to head over and see what links were listed this week. I'm glad I found this one. I'm a new blogger and these tips will be good to refer to. I'm pinning it too so I remember!

  8. Great tips! I must admit that I don't post everyday – I am still looking for the time to do that! I also haven't done a giveaway. So, I definitely have some things to work on! Thanks.

  9. Thank you for this list! I am having trouble getting traffic to my blog, and this will surely be helpful. I am excited to put all of these to good use on my blog! I just have to keep reminding myself that it takes time.
    Thanks again!

  10. Hello! Stopping by from Paula's No Rules link party. Thank you for all these tips! As a new blogger, I can use all the help I can get!

  11. Hi Leanne! Stopping by via Yesterfood linky! These are all great tips, I've been working really hard on building my traffic the last few weeks. I have a full time job so I work any spare time I have. I have been real consistent with social media, and getting 3 post a week out. Hopefully I can get ahead and eventually be able to post 5 times a week. I need to get a newsletter started too, I'm just afraid I may not be able to keep up with it on top of everything else. I will have to look into the giveaways too. Before I didn't have very many entries )-; Thanks so much for your tips. Have a great weekend!

  12. Thank you Ayana! What's important is that you're having fun blogging. There's so much I want to do with my blog, but the #1 problem is me having all the time to devote to it. Do what you can in your free time, but be sure and don't get overwhelmed.

    Leanne.

  13. Linda, I have a full time job and a mom, and am passionate about my blogging hobby! I'm sure there's a lot of us bloggers with a full plate. There's so much I want to do with my blog, but time constraints limit me from expanding it. I just enjoy the time I have to work on it.

    Leanne

  14. Im always looking for ways to increase my followings in all areas!!
    I think your article would be enjoyed on my Friday Feature Linky party, if you would like to share, I would love to have you stop by!!

    Have a great weekend, Karren

  15. These are great tips and I read it twice just to make sure I wasn't missing a trick. Way to go you for making 10,000 into 30,000. I do ALL of these and blog every day and comment and run links and join in linkys and for some reason I don't get very high traffic. I would love to figure out what I am doing wrong. Great of you to sharing your experience and knowledge hun. Thank you ever so much for linking up to Share With Me. #sharewithme

  16. Awesome tips! Some proved (in my case) to work better than others. Thanks for linking up at Thursday Favorite Things, can't wait to see what you'll share next week!

  17. Fantstic tips! I know so many can benefit from them! Thanks so much for taking the time to link up with us over at the #HomeMattersParty – feel free to send a friend or two our way, and we hope to see all of you next week! Happy Friday 🙂

  18. Leanne, thanks for providing these great tips! Love the clear, explicit information. I've started to implement some of them and plan on doing the rest when I can– Melissa

  19. These are all great tips. I just started a new blog and am implementing most of these…I do struggle with keeping my social media updated daily so I currently focus on that (social media) more than doing #6. I also do not host my own parties but that could change in the future once I get a good number of followers.

  20. Thank you for such great tips! I think we all can use these. Thank you for sharing at the Motivational Monday Link Party. Hope to see you again Sunday night.

  21. Great tips. I've just started using StumbleUpon. I was not aware that you could add your blog to Buzzfeed, but I'll look into that. I learn something new about blogging every day. #FridayFeature

  22. Just popped over from Found & Foraged … thanks for sharing some great tips. I'm going to check out Buzzfeed & Stumbleupon 🙂

  23. Just popped over from Found & Foraged … thanks for sharing some great tips. I'm going to check out Buzzfeed & Stumbleupon 🙂

  24. These are some great tips. Pinned and shared. I don't have Reddit or Buzzfeed. I'm trying to get to SU more often. Thanks for linking up to Turn it Up Tuesday.

  25. I think you have some great tips here. I would also add interaction with other bloggers on top of giveaways and link ups. It's nice to be a part of them but I think it takes it to another level when there is actual interaction and conversation going on as well. It definitely encourages a sense of community and not just page views. Love the idea of adding your posts to Buzzed etc…great idea. Thanks for linking up (Wednesday Wishes).

  26. I love these tips! I've had a lot of success with Pinterest – it's where the most of my traffic comes from. I haven't tried Digg, Reddit, etc. yet. Thanks also for the giveaway tip – I have been looking to participate in one but didn't know how. Thanks for sharing!

  27. In reading your comments I think your idea about Buzzfeed, Reddit and Digg has been popular and I like most of the above have never done that. Reddit, to me, seems so mean. The people on the site I mean. have you ever experience a slew of negative comments from the followers of Reddit? I am just curious. I will definitely be checking out Digg and Buzzfeed. Thanks!

  28. Great Post Leanne, and you are so right on all of it! Happy St. Patrick’s Day and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday!

  29. Fab tips. Google + is crucial for SEO, it's the big one, I would add, guest posting on other sites too and lots of tags on your posts and alt tags on images for SEO too. Finding audience/readers on You Tube and instagram are great too. Adding hashtags to tweets helps too! Thanks for linking up to #brilliantblogposts

  30. This is a super super great resource!!! I really appreciate this list. Pinning and sharing. Thanks for sharing at Totally Terrific Tuesday last week! Can't wait to see what you have lined up tonight!

  31. Great tips! I still am not sure I have the Pinterest thing figured out. Definitely have pin-able images and definitely pin to my boards but just don't seem to generate much from there yet.

  32. Some great ideas here, you have done a great job of increasing your page views. I totally agree with having pinnable images. Pinterest is such a powerful social platform.

    Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.

  33. I love posts like this. I'm pretty addicted to pinning blogging tips on Pinterest. I definitely agree with what you said about writing a post everyday. I definitely find my traffic is much better when I post consistently.

  34. Great tips! I totally agree with number two, over the last few weeks I've blogged every day and have seen my pageviews jump significantly. Thanks for sharing. #AllAboutYou xx

  35. My big downfall is lacking content. I am naturally a quality over quantity type of person. It takes me days of rereading a post before I publish it. I probably have 20 unpublished posts started! I also hate to keep posting more when I feel like not very many people have read the last one!

  36. Wow! You have a lot of great tips. I have been blogging for a a while now and I need to try some of these ASAP! Thanks for sharing!

  37. Thanks for the tips! I have been blogging off and on for a few years but it's something I want to do more seriously. It's nice to hear the success of someone who has been blogging for less than a year. Gives me hope that one day someone other than myself will be reading my blog. 🙂 I will follow you so that I know when the Mix It Up Friday link party starts. (I blog about my home and DIY projects.)

  38. Awesome tips! Blogging takes time, and I wish I had read posts like this when I was just starting out.
