  1. Thanks for sharing such an informative article! I found your insights that s are so particularly interesting. In fact, I wrote a related post on my blog that expands on some of the points you mentioned. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it and feel free to share it with your article too. Keep up the great work!”

  2. Hi Kevin & Jade!

    I resonated with the post so much, you literally described the exact feelings I had when I began blogging too! It can be so overwhelming to start, but once you catch thee blogging bug, it makes everything so worth it, and I’m now making a full-time living from doing so!

    It’s incredible to see that you increased traffic from 19K to 100K+ with Pinterest!!!

    I may start looking into it, would you still recommend the ‘Pinterest Strategies’ course?

  3. This is a really great post, Jade and Kevin! I’ve been missing some key elements after hitting publish. I’m going to get on it right away and make myself some notes of what to do every time I publish. I’m so excited to see what this does for my traffic and I’m going to check out the courses too. Omg I think I need a week now to implement haha!

    1. Ha ha ha

      It definitely takes time but when you’ve got a plan, it just flows a lot better. Good luck and enjoy the process! Let us know how you get on and thanks for the kind words, Jenn. πŸ™‚

  4. i know this is a little of topic from what you talked here, but my question is does the new google search console have a limit on how many times you can request indexing for a new post or old one, because the old one had a limit. Thanks

  5. Fabulous post guys. LOL on the Instagram hate.Ditto here. I have it on my phone, delete, load it, delete. What a fancy dance I do. Now I have fun guest posting, blog commenting, podcasting and doing live vids to spread the word for my blog and individual posts.

    1. Thanks, Ryan. Your timing is impeccable, as usual. About an hour ago, I was learning to love IG again and was having a blast editing photos. Now, I’m writing captions and asking myself wth I was doing wasting my time. ha ha I’m gonna have to try it your way, I’m thinking. Although I first need to develop confidence for a video. πŸ™‚


  6. Fabulous tips. Thanks so much for sharing. As a beginner blogger trying to get my head round all the technical stuff ( huge learning curve ) it’s great to get ideas for tweaks that are easy to implement πŸ™‚

  7. Great informative post you have going for new bloggers Kevin! It’s always good to see experienced bloggers sharing insight on how they promote their posts. Keep it up

  8. Wow! Thanks, guys for this humorous but helpful and insightful post.

    I really had a great time reading this post and learnt a handful.

    It’s really not been easy getting traffic in, as someone who is just starting out, and it sure is very frustrating. I have heard people talk so much on how much Pinterest can help explode one’s post and I even tried engaging in it but I never really git that same impression and gave up out of frustration.

    But reading from your post, I do see that its really something I need to keep at and figure out how to make it work. I do like that you included two resources that can help one improve in that aspect, will surely check it out.

    Because of the time factor, I stopped engaging in other social networks for a long time, but I think its time to re-establish that content sharing strategy. At least one never knows when that breakthrough will come through.

    Thanks, guys for awakening my social spirit sharing again.

    I will start working on this immediately.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. You’re welcome, Queen. Glad you liked it. Traffic is so difficult in the first year. It’s almost like pulling teeth, isn’t it? You really need to put yourself out there. Do let us know how you get on and if there’s more info we can provide for you. Good luck on your journey! πŸ™‚ 

  9. Thank you so much for sharing this post, I am a relatively new blogger, I am getting good at adding content and using images, video’s adding links and so on, but I have to admit that I am having difficulty in generating traffic to my website, I use Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest as well as some others and though I’m not doing great, I think I am getting there slowly, however, I do hear people saying how great Instagram is but I’m afraid I just don’t get it, I can’t seem to make any headway with Instagram, I have very few followers and I don’t think anyone clicks on the link on my profile, I will read your free training link for Instagram and I’m sure it will help, thank you for sharing, take care. 


    1. You’re welcome, Russ. We kinda don’t like it either and the ROI – at least, for our niche – isn’t particularly great so we’ve let it go for now. You do have to choose which site you want to go for in the beginning. Just remember to diversify. You don’t want all your eggs in one basket. The first time Pinterest banned is, it was our only source of traffic, which was already meagre. We were devastated.

  10. This post isa absolutely brilliant! I’ve just made a note of all of your suggestions and I’m going to start implementing them straight away Some of these tips seem so simple yet I never thought to do them and I’m thinking why didn’t I come across this earlier than now but I guess it’s better late than never. Thanks for this informative post.

  11. Thank you so much for this post right here. I have read so many posts on how to get traffic on your blog but none of them compares to what you have written here. It is true that internal links are integral to get good traffic. I don’t know why you guys don’t make use of your Social media platforms but you have also mentioned that they are great to drive traffic. Overall, great unique post. Just to mention, I am also a premium member of wealthy affiliate.

    1. Hi Henderson, yeah. We’re running out of time (and also not too keen on social media but we’re working on it ha ha). Glad you liked the post though. We’ll see you around in WA. πŸ˜€

  12. Thanks for the informative article. I am a relatively new blogger and am always looking for different ways or tips to increase the traffic to my website. It seems from your article that Pinterest and social media is the best way to go in this regard. I haven’t tackled this approach yet and definitely plan on doing so now. Thanks again for the advice! 

    1. Hi Chris, in the beginning, that’s what we recommend, yes. SEO needs time to work and paid advertising is, well, paid. Not many bloggers want to pay for ads just yet (and who can blame them, really?). Thanks for posting and we’re glad you liked it.

  13. This is very valuable information for bloggers. Getting traffic can be the most challenging aspect of running a successful online endeavor. Great advice to include internal links to your own content to improve SEO. Plus, the section on the Google Search Console is critical, as the majority of search traffic is run through their engines. Thanks so much for this information… I’m definitely going to utilize your suggestions for more traffic!!

  14. I think my mom would be less likely to read my content but I want my blog to reach people who are interested in my subject. Thanks for explaining the value of internal links. What do you do when you write something and you want to internal link to something that you’re going to write in the future? Do you just have to remember to go back to it later?

    Right now, I am so new to my website. I am doing the first two things you said with the internal links and the search console indexing.  

    When I get into social media I think Pinterest will be the first thing I do. Right now I have the site comments thing so I’m glad to at least have that. Honestly, before I do Pinterest I might try doing what you said with the message boards and helping people that way and then at the end of my post being like you know here’s a link if you want to check out something I already wrote about it but subtle not really spammy.

    Anyhow this was a great post and has a lot to do with where I’m at with my website. Thank you!

    1. Hi Jen, we’re glad you liked it. For internal linking, quite a few bloggers use a tracking system of some sort. We prefer excel. When you’re just starting out, it’s fine to just remember it but when you’re tackling 100s of posts. You might want to start tracking them.

      If you’re new, then remember to pace yourself and not try to do everything all at once. It’s a recipe for overwhelm and, based on personal experience, blogging overwhelm is difficult to get out of.
