Sharing on social media more than once. I’m really awful at this, but one of the best things you can do is keep telling people about your blog. I tend to write a post, tell people on twitter, and then pretend like nothing has happened for the rest of time. The thing is, half my followers were probably not online at the time, maybe they happened not to see it, maybe they filed it away in their head like “oh I want to read that later when I have time” but then they forget. It’s actually good to post about it again later.
There’s also a lot of googley stuff, SEO things, you can do to make your page more easily found. This will mean you get more views on those stretches between publishing posts. When I first started, I’d get 10 views on the day a post was published, maybe 1-2 the following day, and then nothing at all until my next post. Two years later, and I get more than my old peaks just as background noise passing through every day, and then spikes when I write something new. This isn’t super important for me, since I don’t monetise the blog, but some things that help you get background traffic, or so I’ve heard:
Tagging your posts well, and having titles that properly explain what they’re about - my worst performing post is one whose title is just “Concentrate.” and tbh even I don’t remember what’s in it. My best performers are ones that don’t have silly/comedic/culture-reference titles, as much as it pains me that this is the case. eg “I made X using Y”, “Why Z is super pants”.
