In this part 2 (just like in part 1), I have listed the ladies in no particular order. Be sure to visit their blogs where more of their web traffic secrets are revealed.

 

Sue Neal of writeclever.com

web trafficI’m a life-long bookworm and creator of writeclever.com, a website dedicated to helping people who want to improve their writing skills

and make money writing online. I still regard myself as a ‘beginner’ as an online writer and blogger – I’m certainly no expert and have a lot to learn. I’ve set up my site with a view to developing my own skills while helping out other folks along the way.
I live in the UK and work in mental health care – I still have a full time day job so only work online in my spare time.
I’ll be retiring from my job soon and will then be able to dedicate more time to my website and writing activities – can’t wait!
Apart from books and writing, my other passions are dogs (I have two very badly behaved ones!), walking and wide open spaces.
I’m fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the English countryside so walking my dogs is a daily pleasure (except when it’s raining!)

What are your Traffic Strategies?

I’m really a beginner here, so hesitate to give advice, but this is what I’m doing currently to drive traffic to my site:

  • Commenting on other blogs, making an effort to leave thoughtful responses, not just one-liners.
  • Encouraging comments on my own blog and ALWAYS responding to genuine comments
  • Social media – I have a linked Facebook page and twitter account and I’m also active on Google+
  • Pinterest – I always pin an image with a link to my post when I publish
  • Sharing other people’s stuff – I make a point of sharing relevant articles and posts on FB, Twitter and G+
  • Basic SEO – I use a paid plugin called pushbutton SEO that I find very helpful.
  • Regular posting schedule – I now post once a week on Mondays
  • Endeavouring to post high quality content that will encourage people to subscribe and share.
  • Building relationships with other bloggers – just getting to know people.

I know I need to do much more, but that’s all I have time for at the moment – most of it’s about social engagement and providing useful information that people will enjoy reading and want to share.

What are your Traffic Strategies?


Traffic Strategies?  Funny.  I used to be into “traffic strategies” a decade ago and spend a lot of time on it.  These days, I spend more time on relationship-building.  I don’t build relationships for the goal of building traffic. I build relationships because of the relationship and community aspect, but it has the benefit of building traffic.  It is a nice place to be, to do something you believe in and feel good about it, and still obtain business benefits as well.

What are your Traffic Strategies?

Answer to second question:  The traffic strategies I use aren’t rocket science – I keep the blog updated with original, search engine optimized content at least 5 days a week.  Then I share those posts on social networks and for the most part that’s about it right now.  This may sound simple, but it took awhile for it grow at first.  In the beginning, I did a lot of blog commenting, networking with others and growing my following.  It was the hard work that I did in the beginning that made it so I don’t have to work as hard at it now.

Maricel Alfonso Rivera of CareerMomOnline

website trafficI’m a mom, a financial researcher and a freelance writer. I blog when I’m not any one of the three, but that’s not saying blogging isn’t of much value to me. It is, and I credit my foray into blogging for the online writing work that’s been steadily coming my way since early last year. I mostly do article/content writing, guest blogging for small businesses, website reviews and ghostwriting.

One thing I really like about working online is the schedule flexibility and the friendship among bloggers and other freelancers that transcends cultures, geographies and time zones.

What are your Traffic Strategies?

As for my blog traffic strategies, I mostly don’t write with keywords in mind, which explains why I rarely get traffic from the search engines. I know this has to change, but as they say, old habits die hard. The traffic to my site, for the most part, comes from social media referrals, the comments I left in other sites, guest posting, sites like BlogEngage and online friends, like Enstine, who are just so amazing.

Conclusion

There is one thing that’s common in these traffic strategies. It’s unique and keeps coming up.

Have you identified the common secret? Can you tell us what it is in the comment box? Express your mind and share the post.

Ladies, thanks for taking time to respond. Women are shaking the blogging kingdom

  9. Wow, Enstine, thank you! It’s such an honor to be included in this league of remarkable women. But LOL on my complete name showing up there. One thing I forgot to include, just like Sue Neal, my blog was set up, for the most part, to improve my writing skills, given the fact that I’m not a native English speaker. I have a lot to learn, and I’m glad to have found blogging friends, like yourself, who help me with the learning part.

  12. Hello Enstine,
    You are doing quite a nice job here. It’s been long I haven’t left a comment on your site due to busy schedules. I quite agree with the points highlighted by these successful women bloggers. It is nice to build relationships with other bloggers especially. That’s one area I hope to improve immersely this year.

    Hi Enstine
    Wow you really did find some great bloggers. I am not familiar with all these bloggers so now I have some more blogs to visit.

    It has been good to learn about people and the traffic strategies. I think building relationships and commenting on other blogs still seems to be the most popular over the two posts so far.

    I can see why you broke what was going to be one post into several. That was a wise decision.

    Thanks Enstine and look forward to part 3.

  23. Hi Enstine,

    Thanks so much for this amazing series of posts – I’m overwhelmed to have been included with these other impressive lady bloggers because I still really do see myself as a novice. Kiesha’s work rate, adding to her blog 5 days a week, is phenomenal – she sets us a great example.

    I’m not familiar with some of the other bloggers you’ve featured, so I’ll look forward to exploring their sites – thanks for this great share!
