How To Get More Followers On Your Blog For Free

When I started out I had no idea how to get more traffic or followers and it was kind of a tough learning process. I actually almost gave up on my blog and if it hadn’t been for those two followers I had I may have actually given up on blogging altogether which is a scary thought! But thankfully I kept blogging and I eventually started gaining followers and got more traffic. Here are some of the ways I did that:

Reach Out- If you want other bloggers to view your posts and leave you likes, comments and follows you should be doing the same! Especially if you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to check out other peoples blogs- not only will you learn new things from them you’ll also start getting your own name out there. It helps to leave comments because then they’ll notice you and most likely check out your blog as well. However, make sure you don’t just like posts for the sake of it and you don’t just follow random people for follow backs because it’s important to be authentic and get real followers who will engage.

Be Regular- It’s so important to post regularly because your traffic and number of followers will drop as soon as you stop posting regularly. And if you post regularly you’ll notice a rise in likes and followers. I learnt that the hard way because I spent a long time posting randomly and not getting a lot of follows/likes but as soon as I started posting regularly I was like “OMG”.

Tags Are Important- Make sure to Google before you post to see what the most viewed tags on WordPress and most Goggled words are so you can add some of the relevant ones to the tags on your post. But don’t add random irrelevant tags because honestly that’s just annoying.

What’s your niche?- Make sure to like and follow bloggers who write about the same or similar topic/topics because they are way more likely to follow you back. Also search some relevant tags on your reader to find similar blogs!

Keep It Real- Keep your writing honest because people can tell when you’re being fake or lying and no one really wants to read a blog like that. People will appreciate your writing more if it’s honest and you’re not afraid to express your opinions and they’ll be more likely to give you a follow!

Have Fun With It!- Honestly, don’t stress out too much about followers and likes because at the end of the day you should enjoy what you do and if you write just for the likes/follows it will kind of suck the fun out of blogging.

    Thanks for the great advice! I am trying to focus less on who follows me and more on my content. I will try my best to follow through your advice. Also I randomly followed you, but now I am learning so much, maybe a rule I won’t completely follow. -lol-

    I enjoy reading your posts. I’ve been at this for so long, but i have serious ADHD, so I can’t seem to get from a to z, if that makes sense. I know exactly what to do and what I want to accomplish, in my mind, that is, but when I go to really do it, it’s like I become paralyzed. Very strange. So between my mental health blogs and the work from home blogs, I can come up with some great things. I enjoy reading your blogs. You get the point across in plain English! Thanks for your Blogs, I’ll be reading.

    I enjoy the practical advice your blogs offer. I am not a “serious” blogger, but I do hope to get better at it! I recently started working on my tags and you’re right, really makes a difference!

    Thanks a lot for sharing these!! After a long ( really long) hiatus, I rejoined WordPress and this was the first post I saw. And it is so motivating to read these. Thanks again!
    Although, I will be glad if you can help me out with the tags section 😅

    Thanks for writing this! I just launched my blog and I have no idea what I’m doing, so it feels nice to see that everyone started from the same point lol. (Also, I’m not sure if this is against blogging etiquette, but thank you for liking my intro post!)

    Thanks PoojaG. I think I am going to place this link on my blog page. And thanks so much for the tips. I only block once a week and am really trying to stay consistent with it. Am still building my site and hope to eventually get there. But thank you so much. I was about to through in the towel. But as I was taught in grade school. “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits!” Again—thanks a lot. I will definitely take this information to heart. Have a great rest of your week.
