What Not to Do To Get Traffic to Your Blog #InfluencerMarketing

I remember when I started my blog about seven years ago. I wrote a few posts and then sent it to friends and family via email and Facebook. That got me a pop of traffic but then what? How do you get readers?! The kind of readers that come back day after day. It’s an addicting quest and I’ve made many mistakes on this journey of If You Build It, They Will Come. Let me share my most spectacular mistakes with you!

How To Get Traffic for Your Blog

Permalink Nightmare

If you are like me and you set up your blog in ignorance, you might not even know what a permalink is. I didn’t. My WordPress blog template had a default permalink setting (that’s the link that is created for each post) that used numbers. I never really thought about my permalink. It was just there.

But then I took an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) class and I learned that the permalink IF IT HAS WORDS SUCH AS THE WORDS IN YOUR TITLE can generate traffic from search engine queries. But, of course, mine had numbers. So I just switched it on the back-end of my blog so that my permalink used the title of my post.

Disaster!
