5 Proven Ways to Double Your Website Traffic In 30 Days

When it comes to building a profitable blog that makes money, one thing matters most: website traffic.

Website traffic is the lifeblood of any online business. Unless you’re a professional marketer or growth hacker, it’s difficult to double your website traffic quickly.

There are so many ways you can increase your website traffic but the 5 traffic generation tactics that you’re going to discover in this post are proven to boost your site’s traffic quickly. So let’s get started!

5 Most Powerful Ways to Increase Your Website’s Traffic Quickly

#1. Start writing on Quora

Are you struggling to get more visitors to your blog even if you’re posting regularly? I know how it feels and I’ve been there. If you’re also one among them, I've got a quick tip for you: start writing on Quora.

Quora is the #1 Q & A platform where millions of people actively participate in questions and answers across various topics ranging from rocket science to education to psychology. No matter what niche you are in, you can find great topics and writers to follow.

Go to Quora, sign up for free and start following the topics where you’re most interested in (and follow people who are top writers in those topics to improve your Quora feed which will be really helpful later). Here’s how it works.

In the above example, you can see that for the topic “email marketing”, Quora is showing a ton of questions you can answer (you can replace it with any topic that you blog about).

Start writing answers on the topics where you’ve some knowledge. You don’t have to be an expert to write answers on Quora though expertise helps you in fetching more upvotes, comments, and views.

That being said, here’s how you can use Quora to boost your traffic in 30 days.

  • Start writing answers every single day (at least 1 answer a day and link back to your site at the end of the post).
  • Start commenting on others posts that are relevant to the topics you write and connect with people who are active on Quora (through messages, replies to the posts etc)
  • Find questions that are already popular (where most people are already following the topic). That way you can get more views on your answers immediately.

The key is to getting started with writing answers which are relevant to your blog topics (and link back to your blog posts at the end so you can drive more traffic).

#2. Update your top 10 traffic generating blog posts with new keywords

Right now I want you to do this: go to Google analytics to find all your top 10 traffic generating blog posts and pages.

Ignore pages like your website’s home page, about us page etc (they will mostly get a high percentage of traffic) and create a list of top 10 blog posts which are generating more traffic from search engines to your site.

Why should you do this?

The reason is simple: if you want to double your website’s traffic within 30 days, you need to improve your existing posts which are already working well for you.

So what you need to do after finding top 10 traffic generating blog posts?

Here are few things you can do to improve their quality and attract more traffic from search engines.

  • Find more relevant keywords. Do a quick keyword research and find all the relevant and high profitable long tail keywords that you can use in each one of your top 10 high traffic blog posts. You can update your titles, add more information, images, links etc.
  • Make sure to fetch as Google manually by also using the URLs you’re updating. Do this every single time you update a blog post or page so that Google can index your content really quickly.
  • Rework on your headlines and subheadings. Maybe they are not optimized for your main keywords or they might not have compelling headlines to fetch you more click-through rates from Google search. Use free tools like Portent headline generator to come up with really click-worthy titles for your top 10 blog posts.
  • Make sure NOT to change your URLs while updating any of your old blog posts or it might lead to broken links, 404 error pages etc. Also, find and fix broken links within your top 10 blog posts if you have any (so you can perform better in search engines and improve your user experience).
  • Remove all the spam and one-liner comments on your top performing blog posts. They don’t any value to you or your audience. Also, respond to thoughtful comments on your top posts if they are not replied yet by you.
MY PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU  How To Get More Authority, More Shares And Higher Rankings With Skyscraper Content

Repurpose your top performing blog content

Most people don’t leverage their existing top performing content well. If you’re also one among them, start giving more importance to repurposing your content that’s already working well for you.

You can repurpose your existing blog posts into;

  • eBooks
  • Infographics
  • Videos
  • Podcasts
  • SlideShares etc

And use those specific platforms (YouTube for videos), iTunes and SoundCloud for podcasts to start attracting new visitors to your site who are interested in your blog’s content.

#3. Build backlinks to your top 10 posts

Do you know how search engines weigh the popularity of any website? By looking at the number of backlinks a website has. Have a look at the following image.

google rankings and links

What can you learn from the above study done by Moz team?

99.2% of all top 50 results (top 5 pages on Google search) has at least one link from an external source. Clearly, you can notice that Google gives high priority to the pages with more quality backlinks.

That’s why if you want to double your website traffic in next 30 days, start building more backlinks to your top performing posts and income generating posts.

There are a ton of ways to generate links to your top blog posts but I recommend you;

  • Guest posting on relevant blogs (top blogs will be even better). Here’s a huge list of sites for guest posting.
  • Blogger outreach (works best if you already have connections with other bloggers) and
  • Email outreach (simply start emailing all the potential sites that can link back to your top performing blog posts).

#4. Conduct a site audit and fix your site issues

One of the most effective yet less known ways to double your website traffic in 30 days is to conduct a thorough audit of your website.

Site audit helps you;

  • Find all the issues with your blog (broken links, missing title tags, images with no alt tags, redirection errors, crawling issues etc)
  • Fix all of them by giving you a site audit score (when you use tools like SEMrush)

You can use tools like Seoptimer to perform site audits to find and fix all your site technical and SEO related issues really quickly.

But if you’re looking for a better tool, go for SEMrush, I’m using it for more than 2 years for site audits. It’s one of the best SEO tools out there that helps you with site audits.

#5. Start doing expert roundup posts and interviews

Last but not least: start doing roundup posts and interviews with well-known bloggers.

You must include expert roundup posts and interviews within your content marketing strategy. Why? The reason is simple, they are always popular and go viral really quickly even if you’re running a new blog.

Here are few proven tips that you can use for doing expert roundup posts and interviews that always get more traffic, social shares and backlinks.

  • Start reaching out to other bloggers if you aren’t doing it yet. Email outreach is one of the most effective ways to build a strong rapport with other bloggers and it helps you quickly connect with other bloggers to do expert round-up posts or interviews with them.
  • Follow all the influencers and well-known bloggers in your niche on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. Start sharing and retweeting their stuff as frequently as possible. This helps you connect with them easily.
  • Compile a list of all the expert roundup posts and interviews in your niche with URLs using a spreadsheet. Make a list of all the bloggers who you want to include in your roundup posts and interviews along with their website URLs. Then, start reaching out to them one by one.
  • Once you’re done with publishing the content, make sure to email all the people that you included in your interviews or roundup posts and ask them to share your stuff. Most people will do and that can help you get new visitors and leads to your site.

Final thoughts about increasing your website traffic really quickly

Increasing traffic to a website is NOT a rocket science. It’s all about finding the right traffic generation strategies and sticking to the ones that work like a charm.

  1. Hey Anil,
    Good stuff bro.
    I have been active on Quora. While it's a great traffic platform, it's getting really messed up. Some folks are creating accounts, asking dump questions and then provide answers from different accounts just to get attention. However, if you are genuinely helping people with answers, you will see result.

    What I do often that works powerfully well for me is your point #2. I use Google Search Console/Analytics to locate those popular posts on my blog. Often, I will do some tweaks, add content, LSI keywords and build some backlinks. Recently, my natural traffic has has over 30% increase just doing this one single thing. Yes it works.

    Thanks for sharing helpful content with us here bro. Hope you both are having a great week

    1. Hi Enstine,

      True about Quora getting messed up with more spammers these days. But it's definitely a great platform for quality content creators.

      Updating your old content and better performing posts often works like a charm as Google always loves freshly updated content. Using LSI keywords can be of great help!

  2. I completely agree on Quora - you're absolutely right: no matter what your field is, you can always find interesting topics and a targeted audience: maybe you won't get a great result immediately, but answer after answer, people will start appreciating your content.

    1. Hi Andrea,

      You can also find great topics for blog posts, find great keywords and drive more traffic to your sites using Quora. The best part about Quora is that you also get a chance to connect with influencers in your industry which is really helpful no matter what niche you are in.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is such a helpful article! Can you please explain further what you mean by this sentence “Make sure to fetch as Google manually by also using the URLs you’re updating.”

    1. Hi Jenni - Fire up Google Search Console (GSC) for your site and go to the Crawl > Fetch as Google page. Paste in the URL fragment from your target blog post (or page) and select Fetch (or Fetch and Render). When that is done, just hit the Request indexing button. A couple more quick steps there and you should be all set. This is good for getting Google to pay fresh (and quick) attention to your updated post, without having to wait for the bot to visit again on its normal schedule. Good luck!

  4. Quora is sensational Anil. I have taken a little break recently but created thousands of answers on the network. What an easy way to help folks and increase blog traffic pronto. Win-win on many levels. Good tip too; link in to your blog by adding valuable posts of yours aligned with the questions you answer.

    Ryan

    1. Hi Ryan,

      I already know that you're active on Quora, you're doing it really well related to blogging questions.

      Keep up the great work bro and it's definitely a win/win strategy for bloggers and audience. Also you get to include links from your Quora answers which is a great way to increase your traffic.

  5. Great tips Anil. I am a frequent visitor and commentor on Quora. Not only has it brought more visitors to my site but it's also a great way to get your name out there. I've also gotten three clients (I'm a freelance transcriber) on Quora. Definitely worth the time.

    I think that regular blog commenting is also a good way of getting noticed by bloggers you want to collaborate with.

    1. Hi Sheeroh,

      Glad to know that you're active on Quora. What topics do you mostly cover while writing on Quora?

      If you're only using it for commenting, then you might consider writing few answers related to your industry and you'll definitely see some buzz in the form of comments, upvotes, followers etc. Just make sure to spend quality time in writing and you'll notice great results.

      Keep rocking!

  6. Awesome Post , I really liked all the methods.I will follow one by one for my blog.Thanks for sharing it with us 🙂

  7. This is extremely helpful information for me! These are easily actionable strategies, to help me start my blog effectively! Thanks!

  8. I agree with Enstine - I actually have made a couple sales from Quora! I mentioned my most relevant products, such as "How to become a successful copywriter," which is hot. But there are so many really dumb questions.

    1. So true about the questions, Cathy 🙂

      I appreciate you stopping by, reading and commenting!
      Sue

      1. Hi Cathy,

        True that most people are spamming on Quora (but that's what happens when a platform like Quora is growing so rapidly). Just make sure to find and answer highly relevant questions that you think are asked by real people, if you want to get ahead on Quora.

  9. This is your second post that I've read and it is as informative and useful as the first... Thanks for all the tips, I hope to implement 'em soon...

      Glad to know that you're active on Quora (do follow me on Quora at Anil Agarwal where I share most of the SEO tips and make money blogging tips). Yes, it's a great place to increase your personal brand!

  14. Hello Anil,

    Quora is a great place to help others by providing them helpful answers and drive traffic. Keywords also play a great and important role in ranking your blog in search engines. I am currently using SEMrush for keyword research. It helps me a lot. Thanks for sharing these helpful tips here.

    Have a Great Day 🙂

    Vishwajeet

    1. Hi Vishwajeet,

      Quora is a great traffic source if you use it right.

      Also make sure to do proper keyword research for every post you publish so you can add highly relevant keywords to attract more visitors from search engines like Google.

  15. Hey Anil,

    Really nice post.

    Athough Quora takes time, it really pays off at the long run. One of the nice thing on Quira is that it helps to build authority in any niche.

    Another good strategy to get tons of traffic is blogger outreach.

    You explained this strategy in this post really well.

    Thank you for sharing this post.

    1. Hi Liton,

      Quora takes time but it's a great platform of learning and building audience.

      I myself started spending more time on Quora for the last couple of months and start noticing some results through it. Just make sure to pick the right questions to answer!

  16. Hello
    Anil and Sue,
    Glad to read this content. You have listed effective tips to get website traffic quickly. Increasing website is not an easy task and there are many things to do to get better results. I will follow your tips for my blog. This content is loaded with lots of crucial information about website traffic. I like all these tips, especially - Start doing expert roundup posts and interviews and Conduct a site audit and fix site issues.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a nice day,
    Praveen verma

    1. Hi Praveen,

      Increase traffic to any website is NOT easy especially when you're just starting. Focus on developing an SEO strategy that increase your traffic and sales.

  17. Hi Anil, I can personally say your tips are spot-on and pretty effective. I spent some time on Quora, for example, and witnessed an increase in traffic by answering questions relevant to my niche. The traffic was small, but it was very targeted (and that's what really matters).

    Likewise, most bloggers will always have one or two blog posts that perform better than the rest. Go into your Analytics dashboard, take the numbers seriously, and come up with a similar subject using a slight keyword variation. This won't always work, but oftentimes you WILL see some traffic from that newly-created content as well.

    Anyway, thanks for the superb post 🙂
    Elvis

    1. Hi Elvis,

      So true what you said about Quora's traffic. Yes, even I never got a ton of traffic from it, but very targeted traffic which converts really well.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  18. My traffic has been slowly slipping and I am a little discouraged. I have been concentrating on writing good content but my out reach has been lacking. I did sign up with Quora but I have not done much with it. I am going to implement your steps and hope for some improvement.

    Thanks for the inspiration to carry on.

  19. Hi Anil,

    Nice to read your article here on Sue's space. The tips are great and work like magic. Although I have an account on Quora, I must admit that I have not been participating on the platform. But that's a priority for me now. Section 2 is amazing as it will help you reach more people by simply making a few updates - adding keywords and related keywords.

    Thanks for sharing, Anil.

    1. Hi Moss,

      Quora is a great platform, so make sure to give it a try by answering at least 1 answer a day and try to connect with the likeminded people by commenting on their posts (just like blog commenting). The more upvotes you get on your answers, the more followers you can attract and the more traffic you can drive to your sites.

  20. Wow!

    Anil, you nailed it with every single line. Right now, I've kicked into action in researching my top 10 performing posts.

    I will commit to commenting on Quora everyday from today henceforth.

    Thanks for this amazing insight. My Top Insurance Blog will receive a breath of massive traffic going forward.

    Chi

    1. Finding your top 10 high performing posts is a great strategy to include more relevant keywords, build links and drive even more traffic from search engines like Google.

      Start answering on Quora (at least 1 answer a day) to be able to help your audience instead of just promoting yourself and you'll see great results soon.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  21. Thanks for such an informative post. Quora is a great source to driving traffic to the website. However, it should be used carefully because adding too many links to your website becomes spammy and Quora bans the user.

    1. Hi Jaya,

      Yes, one should be careful while promoting their site on Quora and adding too many links won't be helpful for anyone (those even who are reading your answers). That being said, focus on helping people instead of self promotion.

      That's how you can get more value from Quora. Thanks for the comment!

  22. Hello

    I have programming blog and my post having maximum 200 to 600 words.

    so my question is how to get traffic on my website?

    Regards

    1. Hey Ankit,

      In that case, you can do video tutorials and start building audience from YouTube or you can also create few pillar tutorials around beginners guide for programmers and try to get as many links from other sources as possible to increase your search traffic.

      Let me know if you've any questions.

  23. Thanks. Great tips!

    It seems Quora is a good website to help people by providing them answers and drive traffic.

  24. This is an amazing post! Generating Traffic is one of the biggest problems most bloggers face. I have been on Quora for like forever but I hardly ever post there, I will begin to use the platform from henceforth .thanks

    1. True that. Most people struggle to increase their website traffic especially when they are starting out. Driving traffic becomes easy when you give it some time and start focusing on creating great content that generates buzz and links.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  25. This is such a rich, and informative article, very timely for me too. Being that I am a relatively new blogger, struggling to get traffic is no joke I have seen that first hand. I would save this page and keep making refrence. Really helpful. Thank you for sharing

  26. Great Stuff Anil, Semrush helped me a lot...btw is there any way to increase traffic in my jobs site because its been 4months and I m trying to create backlinks and all but organic traffic seems not to increase...plz help me...thanks

    1. Hi Baruah,

      SEMrush is a great tool and it really works like a charm. Just make sure to spend more time on trying their features and you'll be increasing your traffic. Try to find your competitors backlink sources from SEMrush if you want to attract more links and increase your search traffic.

      Keep rocking

  27. Really that's awesome post, While I use mostly quora method. Where I can get keyword without any research from paid tools.

    1. Hi Durai,

      There are a ton of free research tools out there like Keyword Planner, Uber Suggest, Word tracker etc which all provide great information about any keyword that you want to rank for. They are all free and great for beginners.

      So give and give them a try. But if you want more details like Keyword Difficulty, monthly search volume which is accurate - then you should go for premium tools like SEMrush, Ahrefs etc

  28. Hey Anil,

    Really nice post.

    Athough Quora takes time, it really pays off at the long run. One of the nice thing on Quira is that it helps to build authority in any niche.

    Another good strategy to get tons of traffic is blogger outreach.

  36. ooh great post, stumbled on your blog from google. Am greatly impacted, i believe the above mention ways can go a long way to improve my blog traffic.

    but from my research; guest posting and posting on popular forums that offers dofollow links helps to increase blog traffic and enhances its performance on search engine.

    i have shared the post to twitter for my friend to get in touched

    Thanks for putting that into consideration....... Robin

  37. Undoubtedly backlinks play a vital role in ranking on Google, but I personally experienced that my several posts are receiving traffic from Google without any backlink,

    When I figured out "why?"

    I found that those posts are more than 2k words and have several images with perfect On Page SEO optimization.

    Anyway, I like the idea of infusing more keywords in those posts.

    Thanks, Sue
