How To Get Views To Your Gaming Blog
After you’ve built your first WordPress website and have an awesome gaming theme designed for it, you’re now going to need to get traffic to your blog, this is the tutorial how.
All great sites start with social media, you need all your social media accounts setup. I make sure all my sites have a Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube (sometimes), StumbleUpon, Pinterest, Tumblr, these are the social networks that I’d highly recommend signing up to. You need to focus on:
These 3 social media accounts can give you hundreds of thousands of views, so never stop growing them.
You’ve probably seen this everywhere? I did when I first started creating websites, I never really understand what it meant, but now I’ve got it down to a ‘T’. First you need to set up 2 forums accounts on different forums. Just make sure they’re niche relevant.
Next you need to make sure they allow a signature, after you’ve added a signature just go around and help people out, it’s that simple. It will bring traffic to your site. If this isn’t really something you’re interested in doing you can get someone else to do it for you.
Start meeting some friends, everyone’s a friend, the sooner you understand that the better. Me, I could be your first internet friend, you need people like me and people just starting out, you can make a little circle of friends and just help each other out. Buildlinks, comment on each others blogs, get content ideas, share traffic.
Content is king! You may of also heard this being shouted a lot. So what is good content? Is it humor, advice, tutorials, guides, big word count? It’s none of that. It’s all about finding something that your niche needs and doing it better than anyone else. You do this with a few articles and you’ll start seeing some serious growth.
6 Month Strategy
Don’t stop for the next 6 months, it can take 6 months to a year of solid work before you see any results, but the longer you do it, the better you get, make sure you set up a 6 month challenge and don’t stop till it’s over, that’s one of the best ways to get where you want to be.
