Blogging when you’re a beginner is tough. I’m sure you’ve experienced writer’s block or even worse, no blog traffic. And without traffic, you can’t make money blogging or grow your online business.

Even for us, it took a lot of time, effort, and a simple blogging strategy that helped us drive over 220,000 visitors to our blog every single month (for free).

You’ll learn exactly how to use our blogging strategy along with helpful tips to start getting readers and fans to your blog.

The first step is to come up with topics that are proven to generate traffic.

I’m sure you’d agree that you should write about something you are passionate about or interested in. But this can often lead to failure.

If you want your blog to be successful, you have to frame your content so that it’s centered around your readers. The truth is that people are interested in themselves and not necessarily yours.

While you can make educated guesses, you can use tools like Ahrefs’ Keywords Explorer to find the exact keywords people are searching for in Google. This will allow you to accurately gauge popularity and make smart decisions on what you should write about.

The second step is to assess search intent.

This means the reason behind a searcher’s query. If you don’t understand why someone is searching for a specific query, then you won’t be able to get them to click on your article.

You can use a basic formula called “the 3 C’s of search intent”, which is covered in-depth.

The next step is to write a data-driven outline.

Writing out your thoughts is great, but it can also result in missing out on opportunities to get more blog traffic.

You’ll learn how to analyze other top pages that are getting lots of traffic and integrate what’s working for them into your own posts before you even start writing your draft.

The next step is to write your first draft.

You’ll learn some blogging tips you can use to write excellent posts that will keep your readers engaged. You’ll also learn a few techniques such as the Pomodoro technique which will help you write blog posts fast.

The next step is to edit your draft.

Here, you’ll be shown some free tools that will help you edit like a pro. These tools can improve accuracy, speed, and make the whole experience painless.

Best of all, one of the tools will help you keep the readability of your article perfect for your audience.

In addition to these, you’ll learn a few extra tips at Ahrefs. One of these tips has helped us build a loyal following and enables us to consistently produce our best content.
