The other part of blogging secret is SEO. You should know what is SEO and how to get organic traffic, finding low competition keywords and so on.
But, what if you have 1 lakh followers on fb page or group?
You don’t need to do all these SEO. All you need is this big group.
How to Build Audience
Building audience in this era is not a big deal. All you need to have some social account. Here, I meant a Facebook group or page, insta page, twitter account, pinterest, LinkedIn, Quora etc.
Facebook would be a good start. All you need to is to create a group or page which is related to your blog niche.
For example, I have a fb page with 13K+ followers and my niche is Education. I mainly post stuffs related to History, Current Affairs, Maps, Exams, Notes etc.
Start posting some catchy contents and share it with other groups.
The more you collaborate with other groups, the more people join your group.
Similarly, build your audience in other social media too.
Once you have enough audience, it’s easier for you to promote your blogs, apps, products etc.
Market Your Blog
From my experience, it not always 100% that your audience turn out to you always when you share your blog link.
So, you need to market your blog to others as well.

You need to list all the websites where you can share your blog posts for free and get do-follow backlinks.
Yes, this is a process of link building. Some of the websites where you can share your blogs.

These websites will help you to share you website links and helps your blog to be noticed.
Answer in Forums
Another thing I learnt is to answer the public in any platform’s. There are many forums which many people know and have lot of questions to be answered.
Quora is one such platform which has millions of traffic. All you need to do is answer what people are looking for and direct them to your blog.
You need to build the trust online and help others to help yourself.
Simialry, google question hub is another platform by google where you can submit your blog url directly as an answer for the questions.
This way you need to market your blog.
Follow and Read Blogs
You need to follow and read other blogs in your category and actively comment in those blogs. This way you learn to help other and help yourself.
Not just blogs, but also videos. Learn the basic of blogging, SEO, digial marketing etc by watching videos.
I hope by now you got some insight about my thoughts on getting traffic to any site. All you need to do is build audience, connect with people, solve their problem, learn from expertise and implement what you learned.
Do comment your thoughts and I will be updating the secrets as and when I try something new on my blogs.

Should I use “Blogger” as my blogging platform as a beginner?
Depends! If you can invest then you buy paid hosting services and domain. If you are not ready to invest, then buy domain and connect to blogger as hosting services. If you can’t afford to buy a domain too, then use blogger!
Which is a better platform to earn money, freelancing, YouTube, or blogging?
If you think you can get more orders then Freelancing is the first choice. You provide service and get the money. Close the deal!
Blogging would be my second choice as YouTube has lot of rules and regulations now a days. Just posting content is not Blogging. You need to know the “secret to get traffic” to your site. apart from it you need to know how a blog is setup and other technical stuffs.
YouTube would be my last choice. With 1K sub and 4K watch hours what kind of content you plan for? You need to brainstorm your content ideas, make video, edit it, create thumbnail, add attractive title, description and tags. Oops! Not so easy as we think.
