10 Mistakes That Decrease Blog Traffic

Do you also want to start blogging?  Because you have seen the list of big bloggers, millions of traffic is coming to its blog.  For that reason you also want to make a blog.  It is natural that when you will be looking at the list of top bloggers and you will see the traffic of their blog, then you will also think that you can easily do it and with the same intent to start the blog too.  But after 5-6 months you will know that this is not possible for everyone.

All bloggers need traffic, and no one would ever want the traffic of his blog to decrease.  All bloggers work very hard to write a post for their blog so that more and more people read its post.

In my case, I have not been able to give time on blogging for some time, my exam is ahead.  Because of which I am busy for some time.  My blog traffic has not decreased.  I cannot publish posts on blogs here, yet I am getting good traffic.

If I do, then I see a post about the traffic decrease of many bloggers at the top.  It makes me very sad too.  Because I understand that the more effort it takes to manage an old blog, the more effort it takes to manage a new blog.  Despite hard work, why new bloggers are not able to gain enough traffic.

 If there is a decrease in traffic of our blog, then there is some mistake in us.  Often new bloggers are unable to find those mistakes and cannot even rectify them.  I know, when Google makes changes in its algorithm, there is little effect on the traffic of all bloggers.  But those who make a mistake in seo, they tend to suffer more loss.

 Today in this post, we are going to tell you about 10 such mistakes that decrease the traffic of your blog.  If you are a blogger then carefully read the points mentioned below and try to avoid these mistakes.

10 Mistakes in Blogging that Effects on Traffic.

1: Using a Weak Headline

This is the most common and very big mistake made by a new blogger.  I often see many such bloggers that they write a new and very good article, but people ignore it because its title is not good.

In today's time, people on the internet are driving millions of traffic by keeping their traffic attractive by giving false information from their minds.  If you use opera or uc browser, you can see its example in the news section.  Here you will find the title of almost all the post attractive, while the information can also be wrong.  If you lose sight of his title, then you will not leave without reading it.  Such post just gets attracted by millions of readers due to the attractive title.

 In today's time almost the readers do not have enough time to read your whole post properly.  People decide to read your title and read it.  Readers just by judging the headline of your article, they judge your whole post.  According to Copyblogger's report, 8 out of 10 people only read your headline, the rest 2 read your entire article.

 That is why if you want more and more readers for your post, then learn about writing attractive headline.  Just as you try to write the best content, try to write the best headline as well.

How to Write a Good Headline?

The headline should be such that the entire post can be guessed.

Use numbers in the headline.

Use emotional words in the headline too.

Also use keywords.

Use more than 40 characters and fewer than 68 characters in the headline.

2: Writing only for search engines

I always suggest to my readers to write the post for their readers.  If people like your post, then surely they will also like the search engine.  Whenever you write a post, first think about what to add to the post, it will be easier for your readers to understand.

 I know SEO is also very important in the post but you have to first focus on the readers and after that you can seo.  In this way you can optimize your post for both search engine and readers.

"How to optimize both for readers and search engines?

 First, think about writing good content, then think about seo.

Your content should be such that everyone wants to share after reading, use the keyword in the first and last paragraph of the post.
Add buttons.
Optimize by keeping all on-page seo in mind.

3: Not marketing your blog

More than 20 lakh blog posts are written every day and if you want to be highlighted among them, then you have only one way "marketing".  You can make your blog post accessible to as many people as possible through marketing.

 Often, many bloggers write very good posts but do not find them marketing.  When you write post hard, it is also necessary to promote it by giving a little time.  While your post will get more and more readers.  If you do not have time, you can also automate your social accounts.  For this you will get lots of online tools.

 How to Marketing Blog Post?

 Social Media: This is the most top and free way, from which you can reach your post to millions of people.  You can share your blog post in all major social sites.

 Content Submission Sites: Share your post in content submission sites.  Like BizSugar, Growth Hackers,, Hackernews, StumbleUpon, etc.

 Advertise: If you have a good budget then you can also advertise through facebook or google adwords.

4: Not using images & infographics

A picture says thousands of words, and more if infographic.  Just as there are songs inside the movie, people do not feel boring.  Similarly, if you use good images in the post then readers will not feel boring.

 If there are no visuals inside your article, then the readers will feel boring in reading, so that they do not like to read your post.  So whenever you write an article, do not forget to use relevant images in it and also add alt tags to it.

If you use infographic in a post then there are high chances that your post will get more and more shares.  People would like to share it with social media like pinterest, instagram.  And it will help to drive thousands of traffic to your blog.

5: Not Monitoring and Measuring Results

You have written many articles on your blog and have promoted them well.  What to do now?  Much more important work remains to be done, which many of us bloggers also ignore, which is monitoring and measuring results.

 So far, you have written many ware articles on your blog and have written different types of articles.  Which type of article is performing better in your blog and which is not performing well.  You have to do all this analysis.  This will give you an idea to write the best post in your blog.

What kind of articles are performing well in your blog?
Where does the most traffic in your blog come from?
How long do people stay in your blog?
How do people navigate in your blog?
Which countries do people  Come to your blog?
At what time do your blog have more visitors active?

 As the owner of a blog you should know about all these things.  This will give you the idea to move your blog right.  To find out all these things, you can use an online analytics tool.  You can also use Google analytics, which is absolutely free and will give you good results.  Almost the bloggers use this tool.

6: Blogging only about yourself/your brand

Some people start promoting their own business as soon as they create a blog.  It is not right to promote your own product in the blog.  This way people will understand that you are blogging only for your benefit and would not like to visit your blog.

People do not come to your blog to read about your brand success story or the benefits of your product.  You can create your own separate business website for this.  As a blogger, it is your duty to provide helpful information to the readers, guide them and inspire them.

 If you become a successful blogger then people will start loving you.  At that time, if you sell a product, then people will like to take it.  You must have seen the big blogger that he earn money by selling his ebook or any other product.

 If you are a new blogger and you do not have enough traffic right then you would suggest that you just pay attention to writings  helpful articles.  Such as how to guide, lists, case studies.

7: Not formatting your blog properly

Any visitor in Poorly formated blog can not spend much of its time.  It is very important for the blog to be formate / design.  If the formate of your blog is not correct then there will be many problems in understanding the readers.  Because of which people will not like to visit your blog.

 If you will write a short post but if you do its formatting correctly then people will like it.  Because by doing the correct formating, the readers can understand easily.  If you have written a very large article, but if formating is correct, then readers will start feeling boring in reading.

Use short paragraph in post, use a simple font, use bulletpoints for point or list, use heading, bold a word to highlight.

'Keep the on-page factors in mind when writing posts.

 Use H1, H2 or H3 tags for headlines.
Add a link to the post related to it.
Add alt tags to all images.
USe keywords.
Keep keywords using keyword search as well as keywords.

8: Not having a mobile optimized blog page

After Google's Mobilegeddon update, if your blog is not mobile friendly, then it will be very difficult for you to increase traffic.  Not only today, but google has been focusing on mobile optimization since long ago.

 Google has made every effort to make mobile optimization easier and has also launched many tools and projects.  You will know that in 2016, AMP was launched in google for mobile optimization and speed only.

 If you want to drive traffic from google to blog, do optimization for mobile.  Right now you will get more mobile friendly themes.  With which you can easily make your site mobile friendly.

9: Ignoring Comments

It is very important to have a commenting system in the blog.  Almost bloggers allow comments in their blogs.  If you also allow comments on your blog, do not ignore them.

 I often see many bloggers that they allow comments in their blogs, but when their readers ask any questions, they do not reply to them.  Anyone comments in your blog so that you can understand their problem and solve it.  But if you do not respond to them then it will be very bad.  If you respond to a comment, then how happy they are, we cannot explain.

 I would suggest that you do reply by commenting in your blog.  Even one must say "thanks".  If someone makes a negative comment in your blog, do not delete it, rather try to give positive answer.

 In the same way, if you keep responding to people, more and more people will comment.  More comments means more popularity.  This will help you in the heart of your readers.

10: Expecting early results

You must have heard a saying that "The effect of patience is always sweet" many new bloggers create blogs and after writing some posts they start thinking about getting profit.  When they do not earn even after working 2-3 months they leave blogging.

 If you are a new blogger, then I would like to tell you that the most important thing is that the blogging is the most important.  Patience is necessary not only to get success in blogging, but also to get success in life.  In today's time, there will be many New bloggers who are working with patience.

There is no quick way to bring new blog traffic in today's time.  Because the number of blogs has increased a lot and the number of readers has come down.  So if you want traffic then continue to work continuously with your blog.
