As a beginner, you will not get much traffic from search engines. You have to target social media platforms for traffic on your site.

Many bloggers do the same mistake by posting the link on different social media and do nothing. You have to target two to three social media platforms and build an audience by making good valuable content.

I prefer 3 social media platforms for getting traffic that is YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also share your post on LinkedIn as it will generate more organic traffic for your site.

Also, social media traffic helps in improving your website ranking. It will give you an initial boost to your site.

Try to reply to all the comments you get and keep the conversation going on. It will also send a good SEO signal to the search engine.

16. Use effective title

The title of your article plays an important role in your SEO performance. So, make your article both Reader and SEO friendly and place your important keyword in it.

Keep your title short and sweet and according to Google, it should not be more than 70 characters. So that it will display correctly in the search results and encourage your reader to click on it.

Here is an example is given below.

"How to speak in public...Even if you hate public speaking."

17. Choose the right topic  

Finding the right keyword and topic for your blog is important. The right topic depends on what your target audience is looking for.

Keyword research is essential for writing an SEO friendly blog. Because blogging is not about educating others, it is also about learning new things.

You can use tools like Ubersuggest, ahrefs, Moz, SEMRush keyword everywhere, etc for your keyword research.

18. Use the Guest posting
