If you want to start a blog and expect to have a high traffic. Just creating a blog and writing few post are not going to help you. You should have a mindset of having a high traffic in your mind.
Here are few suggestions, to help you build a blog for high traffic:
Offer newsworthy content:
Just think about yourselves, why you spend reading few hours in some content whereas you just spend few seconds in some other. The answer is simple, this is because you get value reading some contents and you keep on reading it for hours. The same is expected by your readers.
Make one-of-a-kind content:
Whenever you write blogs, share your views like what you like or hate about it. This way you will create connection with readers which will make them feel more connected to your writings.
Initially, you may feel difficult to connect yourselves but try it you will see difference in your writing.
You are writing for humans not search engines:
Might be you have written your content in a way to get higher search engine ranking but remember you are writing content for readers. If readers can’t understand or get value from your content, your effort to get higher search ranking is a failure.
