Writing stimulating and catchy headline make you to stand out on Google No 1 page and increase the CTR.
If you use simple and old headline, it looks dull and visitors don’t like to click on boring headline.
The writer at BuzzFeed write 20 headline and among them best one selected before publishing.
I was not writing attractive headline when I was newbie,but afterwards I followed these tips to write catchy headline.

Sharing article can double your traffic but reader are lazy even when they want to share.
because they don’t want to copy url and send everyone.
So you have to provide ease of sharing to reader that help them to share post in few click.
Use social share plug-in to share your article, it offer various customisation to make it impressive.
The best position to place social share plugin at the top, bottom of the post or in the sidebar
Truth: 80% of reader don’t read paragraph,they keep interest in Headline and Image.
Using image optimization can accrue your ranking specially in image so compress every image before uploading
If you ask me? I will recommend to use ShortPixel image compressor.
You can define level of quality you want to keep and it helps you to optimise image without loosing quality of image
Advantage of Optimization of Image.
- Load content much faster.
- Get more engagement with reader.
- Save storage and bandwidth.
- Step up your website traffic.
19.Use Good Theme
Using handsome theme makes reader trust on site and keep them engaged.
If you are not using good theme,it looks unstructured and gives bad impression to user and Google.
To make blog good ,I’ll recommend to use Elegant theme(affiliate link and Astra testimonials) or Astra.
Because it provides various customisation option and key point is “It load your site faster”.
If you use some unknown theme,later you can get spam in your blog,so be careful before installing any theme.
20.Publish Lengthy Article
Write more ,rank more ! formula works because user spend more time on lengthy article that increase the user experience.
According to BuzzFeed, lengthy or detailed post rank faster than any other so write long article as I do on my beststandout blog.
Before publishing make sure your content provide solution to problem and it should long enough because Google loves detailed information.
Ankit singhla(owner of masterblogging.com) increased website traffic by writing quality and lengthy post, so why you not!
When you keep on writing, your writing skill will be improved within few week but make sure you don’t give up.
21.Start YouTube Channel
Hey future blogger? Do you know 85% people prefer video rather tha reading articles?
So to grow traffic for free on blog, YouTube is best platform to share informational video that gives traffic in bundle.
Pro tip: ranking a video YouTube is much easier than article on google.
If you have not created yet,go and start promoting your blog in fashionable way on YouTube.
Many affiliate marketer uses the youtube to drive sales because of active user on YouTube.

If your one video gets viral,you can generate more traffic on website without SEO and earn money.
How to drive traffic from youtube?
Create informational video based on your website niche.
- Keep it short
- Use interesting thumbnail
- Leave website link in description.
Many blogger use reddit to boost blog traffic by just sharing text,image,or video.
But, to influence the traffic from reddit ,choose correct community before publishing.
If your niche focus on blogging then you should choose blogging, wordpress and SEO community to post your article.
This will help you to drive quality visitor and increase sales.
You should not force to click any link in post of reddit.If your do this they may delete your post permanently.
23.Use LinkedIn To Drive Traffic

24.Go For Podcast [🎤]
In simple terms podcast is audio recording file , which talks about particular topic such travel,blogging, and education.
You can find these on Spotify and other website that can be listened any time.
This is greatest way to deliver the content to your audience anywhere and anytime.
In blogging also ,it is taking trend and in future it is going to be the best way to distribute the content.
25.Keep Giveaway Contest
The best way you engage your existing audience is to keep give away contest, it helps to grab new user also.
You can ask to enter name and email address in the contest, this helps to build email list also and make your audience active.
If you had placed earlier contest you can publish winner to gain trust of the user.
26.Link Video In Post
Many user don’t like to read, so you can include video in post.
Instead of leaving your blog user may like to watch video and helps to improve user experience.
It is seen that post having video get more power to rank on Google.
Most of the time blogger don’t link video in the past, that’s the weak point so you can fill this gap and rank your website.

Publishing before other can lead you to grab more visitor on your blog.
If any user search the keyword related to your published post, your post can appear in top of SERP result because your post is older and crawled first.

Writing post on viral content drives ton of traffic so if you pay attention on social media, you can get viral content ideas
Remember: Before writing viral content, verify it’s relevancy to your blog content two times.
If any article ranked through viral content other Article also gets viewed by user in bonus.
29.Focus On User Engagement
Why I have taken this point because it highly impact in ranking.
If user spent more time on blog, it increases the average duration that gives the postive impact on SEO.
How to increase use engagement.
- Use powerful and sectoral words.
- Keep short video in post
- Ask question
- And more .
30.Highlight Trending Post In Footer
Do you know Header and footer content are mostly viewed?
Footer post are available on every page to get impression to user. if any user wanted to read that ,he can easily read.
If you see on my website, only 3 post are placed this is because these are trending, popular and I want to be viewed in big size.
Place your trending post in Footer, assume you are placing ads& want this to be viewed more.
31. Verify URL is indexed
Don’t get stressed if you are not getting traffic on blog?
It may be the indexing problem,so verify atleast once whether URL is available on Google or not.
To check, visit Google console and submit the URL.If it is not indexed, click on submit request.
Implementing CDN increases website traffic indirectly by doubling your loading speed.
CDN replicate your content on different regions, so that it can access content in short span of time.
For any region if your site down, CND display the old content to user and prevent to lose potential user.
