Starting a WordPress blog is really easy. But making it profitable is really not. Building a high traffic blog takes time so you need to be consistent with your efforts. Did you know that 81% of blogs NEVER get more than 100 visitors a day? Growing a site from zero to 10,000 monthly visitors is a BIG deal. Now, let me walk you through few insider strategies you can use to grow your site from 0 to 10,000+ visitors a month.
Getting people to find your blog is only one side of the story. Keeping them for a while is another side of it. While increasing the visibility of your blog and making it easy for people to find is a tedious task, the saddest part comes when that visitor you worked so hard to earn, chooses to hit the back button and leave your site.When someone arrives at your blog through a search and end up liking your posts, they would want to dig deeper. They want to skim through all your posts and find those posts that interest them and read them. Here are some useful tips that help you engage your readers.

The key to effective guest blogging relies heavily on outreach to other popular bloggers in your niche and offering valuable, interesting content in exchange for a publishing slot on their blogs.

Popular bloggers get inundated with dozens of guest post requests every day.
If you have a website, you want people to see it. If it’s a blog, you want people to read it, and if it’s a product, you want people to buy it.
The first step is getting your page to pop during a search. Next, you need your target audience to click the link. At this point, the battle is not over. You need that customer to convert – to buy, follow, sign up, etc. There are a number of methods you can try and quite a few common mistakes that can lead to failure. Look at things you should absolutely avoid when working on your conversion rate optimization (CRO).
