When searching for posts about tips to increase your blog traffic, do you ever feel like you get lost in all the SEO talk and plugins that other bloggers make reference to? I know I do. I know everyone means well, and I appreciate shared knowledge, but sometimes I’m just over here trying to figure out how to get cute text on an image so I can get it up on Pinterest.
Now, Tailwind can be tricky. I had to do some extra googling and watched a Youtube video before I kind of got the hang of it. I would recommend to join a few tribes once you sign up, follow their rules, and start repining. Then, when you pin your pins to that board you have a chance of some large accounts repining yours. Some of my successful pins have been because of repins from my tribes. You can also schedule your pins on Tailwind and they will analyze your best times to post and do it automatically for you.
STUMBLEUPON: this was another one that took some time for me to get used to. I checked my views one day and saw that I had all of this traffic coming from something called StumbleUpon. At first I got really annoyed because I thought it was a bot just messing with my site. Little did I know that people can stumble your posts if they like them and add them to their pages for others to “stumble upon”. I still don’t know who actually stumbled my first post, but thank you to whoever it was. Since then, I’ve signed up and it’s increased my traffic. You might also notice that at the bottom of this post, under my share via buttons, is a stumble symbol where people can just click on that and share it there.
