Are you ready to start driving more traffic to your art blog? In this post, I will share with you 4 reasons art blogs generate thousands of views a month.
Reasons Art Blogs Generate Thousands of Views
Websites and blogs do not rank high in the search results by accident or luck.
There is an algorithm that search engines use to rate the importance of a site. When a site has gained authority it will be ranked higher in the search results.
Why do you want your site to be ranked higher in search results?
The answer is simple, you will gain a tremendous amount of traffic to your site. The more people you have going to your site, the more people will see your artwork. The more people who see your art, the better your chance will be to land a sale.
That is the end goal, right?
You are spending time on social media, answering emails, uploading art to your website and writing blog posts to generate income from your art.
If you are spending all of that time on your art business, wouldn’t you like to have your time be productive and produce positive results?
I am going to talk about how you can be productive blogging.
Digital marketing is all about making a presence online. To build an online presence, you must write valuable content that will attract your target audience.
The dilemma most bloggers have is that they spend a great deal of time writing great content that nobody sees.
Foundation of a Successful Art Blog
Your art blog is a tool for your business. It is not a personal blog that you write about your vacations and new recipes you have come across.
If you want to have your blog produce traffic that will increase your art sales, you will have to treat it like a business.
Spend some time each week on learning how to run a successful blog.
Schedule time every week to assess your blog’s performance.
Write on your calendar what days you will be posting content and what days you will be writing content.
Every month spend some time studying what other artists are writing about. Take note of what is giving them the best results.
4 Reasons Art Blogs Generate Traffic
The more you blog and assess the results of your efforts you are going to start noticing 4 things that produce great results. I am going to tell you what they are so you do not have to waste time trying to figure them out. You can just start working on them so you can start seeing the results you want.
Keyword research is so important for having your content found online. If Google does not know what your content is about, they will not be able to recommend it to the people interested in what you are writing about.
There is a simple strategy that you can use to identify keyword phrases that will drive organic traffic to your art blog.
Here is an article to help you with keyword research.
“One in every three visitors spend less than 15 seconds reading articles they land on.”
What does this tell us?
If you do not write content that interests the reader they will click off the post and go elsewhere. Bottom line you wrote a post that will not produce a loyal art collector and you lost a sale.
Learning how to write posts your audience will read will take time and practice. Just like your art gets better every time you create art, your writing will get better every time you write a post. Practice makes perfect.
Here is an article to help you with writing pillar content.
Strive to make each post better than the previous post.
Blog Titles Matter
Are you wondering why no one is reading your posts? Do you feel like your content is valuable and entertaining?
Maybe your title is not catching your readers eyes. The truth is if your title does not stimulate someone to click on your link, they will scroll past it and click on a different post. Spend some time on creating headlines someone will want to click and read.
Here is a post to help you with writing titles people will want to click on.
The last tip is a little tougher to accomplish and will take some time for you to see any results. One way to have your site rank higher in search is to have reputable sites and blogs link to your posts and site.
This shows Google that people find your content valuable enough to share with others. There are some ways that people go about building high-quality links back to their site, but I would highly recommend just focusing on this one step.
Write unique, valuable content that will help to solve someone’s problem. The better your content is, the more people will link to the content. It is really that simple, however, you will not see instant results. It will take some time to build the trust from your audience, but once you do they will be more than happy to help you by sharing your posts with others.
If you are looking for some instant results such as “likes” or “comments” on your posts, then spend some time posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
If you are interested in building your online art business then you will have to spend time on generating traffic to your online art gallery and your artist blog.
Focusing on keywords, content, titles, and links will help you to achieve your goals.
