How to Attract 1,000 Visitors to Your New Blog Posts

You want it, don’t you?

To attract thousands of visitors to any of your blog posts.

To reply to dozens of comments and get hundreds of social shares. To send thank you emails to the people who link to your content. To receive positive feedback on your work.

attract 1000 visitors

To feel helpful.

To feel happy because you’re needed and loved.

Just like you, I want this kind of blogging happiness.

I’ll tell you sincerely – I’ve got a rather simple plan to achieve it. In fact, I’ll share it with you. (Hint: You only need to take 5 steps!)

I’m just like you! Only a few months ago, I started my blog in one of the most difficult niches, and all my new posts received 2,600-4,300 pageviews.

Here’s what you’ll need to do…

5 Simple Steps to Attract 1,000 Visitors to Your Posts

If you’re in a hurry, save this simple infographic (or just pin it).

5 Simple Steps to Attract 1,000 Visitors to Your Posts [Infographic]

Step 1. Decide what your new post will be about.

Step 2. Research your competitors.

Step 3. Create your impressive blog post.

Step 4. Find the people who will benefit from it. (The secret to your success lies here!)

Step 5. Publish and promote your new post.

Hint: You can click on any of these steps for direct access to the topic that interests you. If you’re afraid of SEO, you can avoid it and go right to Step 4!

Step 1. Choose the right topic for your future post

Selecting your topic will always be the starting point for your success. If you make a mistake on this first step, you’ll deprive yourself of what could potentially be thousands of viewers.

Always consider how useful your article will be

Nowadays, millions of posts appear on a daily basis, so you’ll need to think hard when you choose a topic for your article.

Blog posts written today

You’ll find success if your article is about the people who read it – about the problems your target audience has to cope with. (Your personal emotions are very important to your readers!)

Decide what to write about while thinking about how your words and experiences can help the person who found your blog.

Don’t rush and write about the first thing that pops up in your mind. Maybe earlier it was easier to create content without thinking too much about anything. But times have changed.

Only those bloggers with a precise plan of action achieve success.

If you don’t have a list of ideas for your posts, you should definitely make one! Personally, I use Trello (both on my laptop and cell phone). Every time an idea comes to me, I make a note of it there.

Trello

If you can’t figure out what to write about in your next post, I recommend that you read the following articles:

If you are stuck and can’t come up with anything, you can use the following trick.

For example, review the sidebars of your competitors:

Sidebar of Iwannabeablogger

Have you seen these posts?

More often than not, these will be the articles that get the most traffic. Nothing stops you from using the ideas from these posts and stealing them somehow (I’m talking about the topic of the article and the keywords, but not the content itself!)

So, now you know what to write about. The next step is to implement some SEO magic!

Choose your seed keyword

Most of the problems related to traffic depletion that bloggers face are caused by fear of SEO. I’m not going to badger you, but in my 15 years’ experience, I can say that you’re just being bulldozed.

It’s a myth.

You’re just afraid of the unknown.

The truth is that SEO is no more complicated than a bicycle!Click To Tweet

SEO vs Bicycle

You struggled a bit in the beginning when you were learning to ride a bike, but now you can enjoy it for the rest of your life.

Trust me – just 30 minutes of SEO work per post will help you increase your natural traffic and boost the rankings of your keywords.

Search engine traffic for your posts depends on the seed keyword you’ve chosen. For many blogs and commercial websites, organic search is the #1 source of traffic.

Traffic sources

Let’s devote some more of our time to the seed keyword.

I love using tools that help me save time. How about you?

I recommend that you install the following extensions onto your Chrome browser. They will help you determine the quantity of your Google search queries (you need to know the popularity of your key phrase), and also the difficulty of promoting your post with this query.

  1. Keyword Keg
  1. MozBar

Everything is very simple.

Input in Google the keywords that your users would be searching as they look for the information related to the topic of your article.

For example:

Keyword Keg

Keyword Keg simply adds the data from monthly searches directly to Google.

MozBar

MozBar helps you determine the strength of your competitors. The higher the DA (Domain Authority) and PA (Page Authority) indices are, the more difficult it will be for you to compete with them. But don’t be afraid. If your article is useful and your users like it (many sites will have links to it, and it will be shared and commented on in social media), then you’ll definitely overtake your competitors.

Hint: Consider the Domain Authority index of your blog or website in comparison to the DA indices of your competitors. Despite it not being the main index, the DA index is definitely a beacon. If you see that your competitors – those with the same keyword – have a DA that’s twice as high as yours, then you should choose a different phrase. Remember that it’s not the sites that compete with one another, but the pages!

Also, don’t forget to scroll down to review the queries that are relevant to your seed keyword. One of those will probably suit you better.

Relevant keywords

Your task is to choose the key phrase for your post. This key phrase should have less competition and more monthly searches. The competition is usually weaker among long-tail keywords, or phrases that consist of 3 or more words.

Long tail keywords

Then you’ll need to feed this phrase with relevant keywords.

Think of the words and sentences you should use in your article.

It’s better not to check the frequency of queries on Google Keyword Planner, even though thousands of people do so. Instead, simply steal the keywords of your competitors.

For example, if I wanted to write a post with the keyword “best names”, I would do as follows:

1. Open the first 3 sites that are shown on this query.

Blog names search

2. Using SEOQuake, define the common words and phrases that are used on these pages. (Read the articles thoroughly and mark the keywords that are used in them. They will always be in the headings H1-H3.)

SEOQuake: Keyword density

3. Using the tool Ubersuggest, complete your list of keywords.

Let’s move on to the next step toward success.

Step 2. Steal the best from your competitors.

Over the past 15 years of my career, my main secret has been spying on competitors.

You don’t need to know hundreds of search engine algorithms.

You don’t need to spend years studying SEO.

Just analyze your competitors, meaning the pages that appear in the results displayed by the search engines based on your keyword.

You should always take notice of two aspects:

  1. Quality of the content
  2. Quantity and quality of the external/internal links

Answer the following questions:

  • Why do these articles get the majority of shares, comments and links?
  • How many words are in the articles?
  • What media content is used?

Such tools as Buzzsumo, MozBar and SEOQuake will help you carry out your analysis.

Buzzsumo

Sue seoquake

Now you have enough information to start creating your post.

Step 3. Create your impressive blog post.

Use all the knowledge you’ve acquired from researching your competitors.

Pay extra attention to your heading. Make sure you read these articles:

It would be better to write at least 10 different versions that you can use (and test) afterward on social media.

Check your headlines using the wonderful and free Headline Analyzer tool.

Headline analyzer tool

Try to be different and outstanding.

Don’t forget about the long-form content rules that are in place today. According to recent research, articles that abide by these rules get the most shares, links and organic traffic.

Word count vs Organic traffic

I’ve learned all about it from experience. Just check out my monster post about online experts – it’s more than 8,000 words long.

The more useful and interesting your post is in comparison to your competitors, the more chances you will have to achieve impressive results.

For example:

  • Make your infographic
  • Add a video manual
  • Make an interesting quiz or checklist at the end

Think about your reader and give him a complete answer to the question he approached you with.

Do the basic on-page SEO

Yes, now I’m telling you to pay attention to search engine optimization.

Because it works!

Throughout my career, I’ve promoted and audited thousands of sites.

Only a select few actions can attract thousands of visitors to your blog.

Up until now, I nearly broke into tears each time I saw something like this:

Bad SEO

Save this basic on-page SEO checklist and use it every time you create a new post:

  • Create a Page Title that you would want to click on.
  • Add the call to action in the Meta Description.
  • Evenly spread the keywords you’ve prepared.
  • Use the H1-H3 tags for your subheadings.
  • Use a short URL for your blog post.
  • Add some internal links. (Determine your strongest pages and include links to them.)

Step 4. Find those who could benefit from your blog post. Make friends with those people!

The basics of your traffic are support and friendship.

Memorize it!

Repeat:

The traffic to your blog depends on the relationships you’ve built.

When the competition becomes intense, the people who have more connections win. Building a large network is your top priority as a blogger.

You may find yourself wondering: Where do I get new friends? How do I make them help me?

I was thinking a lot about this, as I wanted to find a quick solution to this problem.

I was contemplating all the promotional techniques I knew. (There are a great deal of them, but they all require time and money, and it’s almost impossible to do it all by yourself.)

Content Promotion Strategies

Since I’m in the same situation as you (now I’m a blogger too), I understand very clearly that certain pieces of marketing experts’ advice (and I’ve been one for 15 years) aren’t suitable for me.

Not everything works for bloggers who have families and other jobs.

We don’t have as much free time.

I read many such articles while I was looking for the best way out of this situation. For 6 months, I was doing nothing but reading and posting on my Twitter account (in addition to the rest of my work, so don’t go thinking that I was a coach potato).

Quite often, I could find something new for me not in the post itself, but in the comments.

Comment by Michael Pozdnev

In the comments, debates flare up everywhere you look. The comments are where people bring forward their opinions like they’ve got something to prove.

In reading those comments, we not only get the author’s opinion on a given subject, but also the opinions of dozens and sometimes hundreds of other people.

Bingo!

All those who argue passionately about your topic are your target audience. This works well for both bloggers and big companies.

That’s how my BFF Commenter Technique came to life.

BFF Commenter Technique on Blogger Outreach [Infographic]
Pin this infographic!

That’s how I got to know Sue Anne Dunlevie.

Sue outreach

Guess what happened next?

She shared my post on her Twitter account! And almost every person I sent a letter to do the same thing.

Sue's tweet

People were linking to me, commenting and sharing on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.

Brian Dean's tweet

Sam Hurley's tweet

Panduanim links

I was astonished by the outcome.

The traffic started to grow instantaneously. Look at how many views my third post received! How many comments! And I was just a newbie.

Traffic from blogger outreach

All of this happened thanks to my new friends and their support.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Find your future friends among the commenters (using blogger outreach).
  2. Become Facebook friends with the most active members of the thematic groups.
  3. Divide the list of your friends into two groups: the authorities and the regular bloggers.
  4. Take a different approach with each group.
  5. Make a list of respectful communities that have significant traffic.
  6. Make friends. Do something useful for them and then… ask them!

If you don’t ask, they won’t help you.

Your growth will always depend on your ability to ask. Look beyond your embarrassment and fear of hearing the word NO!

Since childhood, I’ve been afraid of this word unlike anything else.

BUT!

In reality, people are very kind, and they’re always willing to help.

When the person you ask for help is interested in your topic, the magic of promotion happens.

Your future friends are waiting for you because their engagement is at its peak. After all, they’ve already commented on this topic, haven’t they?

On your way, you’ll need some tools. You can go to them directly in the Bonus Step section. And we will get to the last step that is the only thing separating our posts from thousands of potential readers:

— Attracting visitors to the articles!

Step 5. Publish your post and actively promote it

Publish your post at the beginning of the day. This will give you the time you need to actively promote it.

The best time to publish blog posts

The moment of launch is crucial. You will have a complete list of friends who reacted positively to your letters about acquaintanceship and friendship.

My first letter was like this (Please don’t copy it – I only put it here for you to understand the basics):

Email to Massimo

The reply was:

massimo reply

This is my letter where I ask for support:

massimo help

The reply was:

massimo upvoted

Add your blog post to the communities and groups you’ve found

In my case (the niche of blogging, SEO and online marketing), those key communities are:

If you’re still not there, I strongly recommend that you register.

The main idea is for your friends to support you with their votes and comments. The more you have them, the more likely you are to reach the top and gain unforeseeable traffic.

Iwannabeablogger on GrowthHackers

The same also works for:

Ask them to vote for you, but only if they really liked your article.

Ask growandconvert

Treat your new online friends the same way you would if you knew them in person. Always help them when you can.

Your goal is to form a sort of virus impulse. If your content is good, the wave will carry you and you will see wonderful results.

Here are some additional things you’ll need to do:

  • Send the news to all of your subscribers and ask them to support you.
  • Send an email to everyone you mentioned in the article.
  • Inform the owners of roundup posts about your article.
  • Tweet those who have recently shared articles that are related to yours. (Go to https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/ – just enter the URL of your competitor and review who shared his post.)
  • Add your post with different titles to Buffer a number of times.
  • When you have extra time, spend it getting links to your post.

There is no need to create new posts very often.

Trust me – when you get the maximum effect of SEO, you’ll agree with me.

You need to devote your time not only to creating new content but also to promotion. The more involved you are in blogging, the more you will understand how to organize your time.

Our main mistake is that we fail to focus on the things that give us the maximum results. Every post needs viewers, so let’s help them find us!

Online friends

Some people will tell you that your email subscribers are the Holy Grail to your success.

I don’t deny it, but I’m certainly ready to object.

How many users open your emails, and how many of them actually click the link?

Look at the indices I have when I send the emails to those who are truly interested:

Tor's commenters

Robbie's commenters

I hope I’ve persuaded you that SEO and reaching out to the commenters of topics related to yours can give you impressive results.

Bonus Step. On your way to thousands of viewers, use the tools

You have to choose between free and paid ways. (The free ones take up your time, while the paid ways take your money.)

I’ve been on both sides.

It’s always up to you to decide. It won’t spoil the results. You’ll just need some more time and money. Plus, many programs have free versions and trial periods.

Here’s what I recommend that you use (or just pin it):

15 Tools on Your Way to Thousands of Visitors

Conclusion

Just like in real life, happiness depends on the people who love and support us. And the same principle of success applies to blogging!

I’m addressing you, one of my readers: Be my friend! You can always count on my experience in SEO, marketing, and more importantly, on my support. I love to give presents to all my old and new friends. Visit my blog to get them and become my friend. — Michael Pozdnev

Thank you, Sue, for presenting the opportunity to become your friend!

    It depends on the time, 1000 visitors to the website for how long, one day, one month or a year.

    In fact, most of the bloggers are following this road:

    – Doing keyword research.
    – Analyze competitors.
    – Do some other research to find ideas to write or mix.
    – Write a useful article which betters their competitors.
    – Promote on social networking websites
    – Start link building campaign.

    That’s it!

    What about you?

      Sue

    • says

      I agree with Sue that not so many bloggers follow these pieces of advice. A lot of people don’t even get 1,000 visitors in a lifetime. The most important thing is making new friends.

      • says

        Hi Michael,
        I agree with you that the most important thing for bloggers is making new friends. People talk about influencer marketing like it means USING influencers to get your message heard. From the first time I had a conversation with you, I felt a click. That’s why I love reading your articles and help you promote it.

        Many people don’t understand the power of connectivity. Too bad. I think you’ve shown that power many times. You’re a real advocate of connecting with the right people.

        Keep up the good work.

        Best,

    Hey Sue,
    You’ve got a gem here today. I have known Michael for a couple of months now and he’s someone to listen to.

    Michael you are awesome!
    Both SEO and blogging outreach are result driven ways to drive traffic.
    I do keyword research most of the time. Working with Google Search Console also helps me a lot get natural traffic.
    Sometimes, I get traffic from keywords I didn’t optimize for. What I do is tweak the posts and the result often is improved ranking and more traffic.

    I don’t do outreach as good enough as you’ve taught in your post. I will take a closer look and follow these steps.

    This will surely get me more than 1000 visitors.
    Do have a wonderful weekday, you both

    Thanks for sharing this vital information.

    Let me break it down what i learnt from this post to Attracting 1,000 Visitors to my Posts:

    If i can’t to research on my competitors… i can’t decide what my new post will be…I cant create impressive blog, to find people who will benefit from it.

    But if i CAN follow your Step by Step you explained here, definitely it is very sure to attract more visitors to my post…and website or post without visitors or traffic is useless…but website plus visitors/traffic is equal to MOney.

    • says

      Yes, without traffic our bloggers’ job is pointless. You can always analyze your rivals, and in that blog post, I was trying to give examples of some amazing tools. They can help everyone, even the free versions of them. I believe that analysis is especially important when you’re only starting your blog.

      Thank you for your comment, Tola.

      You’re welcome, Linda! I should confess that I was very afraid that my post will be “high technical”. I’m very glad that I could make the article understandable and engaging.

  8. says

    Sue & Michael,
    Excellent post, it’s really simple and crisp. Michael, once again nice post after long break.

    What I observed is most of the people will happily share the content if blog post mentions about different bloggers including themselves, e.g how some person inspired to write a new blog post.
    But in some articles we can’t mention different people in blog posts though we have friends (e.g. blog post on how to create a store, in these type articles mentioning other bloggers may not be appropriate or its irrelevant).

    Please do share tips on promoting blog posts where its difficult to mention other bloggers or friends.

    • says

      Thank you for your comment. I’m glad to be back. 🙂 Yes, mentioning your friends helps in promotion. It’s not necessary for your friends to be influencers. When you can’t mention your friends, just ask them to help you. The primary task is to find online friends and maintain a friendship with them!

      I can give you one more hint: you can always contact owners of other stores and ask them what #1 recommendation they can give, and then mention their help in your article.

      • says

        Thanks Michael for the awesome tip, yeah it would allow me to interact and maintain friendship with domain specific influencers/friends. Let me try this. Thanks.

    Hi Michael & Sue

    Indeed a great post.

    Buzzsumo is really a great tool to find out the most sharing content from past. I have been using it since last 1 year and finding it helpful.

    Completely agree with step #4. We should always reach out to those people who really need our content and who will get benefited from it.

    They are targeted and potential readers who always love to share others content.

    Either way, Thanks for sharing it. 😀

    I was excited to read Michael’s post all the more because he’d followed me on Twitter (and I had no clue who he is at the time), and I was sure he’d come up with something helpful. I wasn’t wrong. I’ll be honest- I haven’t been putting a lot of effort into my blog, but after being a regular on Sue’s blog, I’m determined to do it.

    I have one question, though. Is it necessary to have self-hosted WordPress in order to earn from blogging? I’m not self-hosted, since I find it all very confusing and a little expensive too, so what am I missing out?

    Thanks so much for the helpful post!

    ~Cynthia

    • says

      Oh yes, I love Twitter!

      Having self-hosted WordPress is important because it’s yours. You can control it. It doesn’t affect your income if you provide services. But in the future you might need many tools and plugins, that’s why I’d recommend you to move. Hosting is not that expensive. There are a lot of articles about how to transfer your site to a new hosting platform. You don’t have to move now, do it when you feel the financial stability.

    Hello Sue and Michael,

    I am totally blown away with the unbelievable facts, research and value provided in this post.

    Wow I’m playing on a completely different field to Michael – the statistics are mind blowing to this old Aussie blogger.

    200-4000+ pageviews and 690 comments!

    This is a whole new world of opportunities to me. To be perfectly honest I’m actually delighted if I get 30 or 40 comments on my posts.

    And yes I know you mentioned SEO is not all that difficult – well I’ll take that on-board but up intil now my SEO work was simply what my Yoast plugin advised me to to.

    Many thanks for your handy SEO onpage checklist – I’ll be usng it as well regularly.

    I just had to print this post out and take it to bed with me. I realy need to go through it a few times to make sure I’ve got a handle of all the key elements you so kindly provided.

    Hi Michael,

    This is a very effective strategy I have been using lately to gradually increase exposure for my content. Is working.

    I use the NinjaOutReach app to find target audience contact details, and for reaching out. It help saves lots of precious time.

    The result one can get from this strategy is not typical, it depends on a lot of factors like how your email recipients perceive your message.

    The number of people you’re able to reach vs the response ratio, and lots more. And one thing we should be careful with here is, don’t make this strategy too often that you start getting or appearing spam to your target audience.

    The best way to keep this safe is to reach different set of audience each time you’re promoting your content using this strategy.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • says

      Yes, Shamsudeen, in the beginning, I also used NinjaOutReach, especially for keeping track of statistics. But then I realized that I don’t need it because first it’s enough to understand that it works. And when you understand, you can use other instruments and send it manually.

      To people, I send the information only when they become my friends. I don’t send emails to those who don’t reply in order not to irritate them.

      Thanks for your comment!

    Hi Sue,

    Excellent article to share. But so many questions…..

    It is immediately clear to me that at the level you and your network are working at that there is a huge quantity of assumed information already known. Which some of the rest of us haven’t yet gained. But will have to.

    So, if I can, question #1 – an easy one. Seed keyword? Is this the same as Focus Keyword in WordPress? With the recent upgrade to our website, I can now see some of the SEO back office stuff and start to attempt to apply it in a manner that could help direct more traffic. I notice that the article talked about 30 minutes of SEO work per post!! Was that related to the contents laid out in the article or other activity (that I still have to learn)?

    And #2 – there was a “Traffic Sources” table. Was that a global generic type summary research table or something specific related to a particular blog article?

    Thank you and keep up the good work, David

      I understand you, David, so I’ll try to answer your questions:

      1. Yes, it’s the same. You need to choose your primary keyword. I meant 30 minutes of work on on-page SEO factors (Title, H1, Url, Keywords, Internal Links) every day. You also have to work on external factors. If you have strong competitors, you’re gonna need links to your content. Your task is to acquire them.

      2. I made this screenshot for this blog in the tool by similarweb

    Building relationship with bloggers is very important. But this process takes lot of time. Can you suggest some other ways to increase relevant traffic on blog?

    • says

      It does take longer but it works very well, Siya. Guest blogging works well also but building the relationship first is key to guest blogging also.

      Thanks for your comment and question!

    Hello Michael,

    I want to thank you twice.

    1.) For letting me know about that “Keyword Keg” tool, I was kind of shocked to see the search volume and CPC below google’s search bar, never hear of it but going to install it right now. Thanks.

    2.) Obviously, thanks for writing this informative, detailed and useful blog post for all of us. There is definitely one thing I do a lot before picking up the topic to write and that is RESEARCH, like you said.

    Great.

    Best Regards,
    Karan

    That was a really awesome article, Michael.
    I am pretty sure that anyone can reach 1000 visitors to new post as I have done it myself a lot of times, but I got to learn about new tools to use, especially Keyword Keg. This is going to help me a lot.
    Thanks for the article! 🙂

    Hi Sue and Michael. I enjoyed your article. I really appreciate you sharing all of the tools that you use to do your keyword research for SEO. I’ve always used Google’s keyword research tool and the suggest feature in Google Search. I’ve just started using MozBar. Thanks again.

      Nowadays there are many tools that can help us. But it’s a problem too, there are just too many of them. MozBar is an amazing tool for evaluation of competitors’ power. I wish you good luck, Ben!

    Hello Michael and Sue,

    What a truly awsesome post – this has really helped me and excited me so very much and I just had to print this post out and go over it again (and probably again) to make sure I don’t miss anything.

    The readers I do get are often very engaged and become regulars at my place but I’ve never reached 1000 readers for any blog post yet to the opportunities you offer are very exciting to me.

    Many thanks for the valuable links especially the GrowthHackers site and Keyword Keg.

    Best wishes from the remote Thai village blogger

      Peter, I’m sure you’ll get much more than 1000 visitors. In some niches, basic promotion is enough, but in very competitive niches you will need friends and networking. The more like-minded people you find, the easier it’ll get with promotion.

    Hey Michael!

    I’ve already learned so much from you.

    And you continue to provide great takeaways.

    This post is full of practical tips that I can’t wait to apply.

    Thanks 🙂

  33. says

    Hey Michael – great post, my friend.

    As you already know, I’m more of “paid traffic”guy, but lately, I’ve been inspired (by your articles) to research the best “free” traffic methods and perhaps, a traffic challenge series… might be in the horizon 😉

    Thanks, again!

    P.S. Glad to see you on Sue’s blog! She’s awesome.

  34. says

    Hi Mike,

    Always loved your content including this one! I’m a newbie myself and definitely will try to implement your advice.

    As for Sue, thanks for letting Mike write this in your blog.

    You two rocks!!
