44 Ways to get Massive Loads of Blog Readers

44 way to get loads of traffic to blog by StayAtHomeSusie.comI have been a blessed little gal.

Not to sound overly-confident, but I know how to lovingly build an amazing community of blog readers. You see, when I started blogging I did so with passion and heart.

I think it is a key ingredient to building a blog. Write about things you truly care about.

If you start a blog just for money, you will likely fail.

People can sniff out a faker.

For me, I revealed myself and what I believe in; which is this: Every woman on earth deserves a flexible, stay at home job, where she can focus on family and also provide for her family financially.

Now I’m proud to say StayAtHomeSusie.com has reached over 4.6 million visitors in only 2 years!

I am so thankful and ready to share my tips with you.

That means, I know how to get:

8,000 to 17,000 readers per day.

So, alas, I give you my love and my advice!

  1. These are great tips- thanks!

    • You’re welcome thanks for stoppin by!

  2. Just what I was looking for! Thank you, Susie. I’ll get to work on them now :)

  3. Thanks for the tips! Two questions: what are you doing on LinkedIn daily? Also, what resources would you point out to those of us who feel squeamish about trying to take on SEO? Thanks!

    • Suzi, thanks for the questions.

      1) I would say, LinkedIn.com is better used for connecting and networking in a smaller sense. I have not personally seen massive traffic come from LinkedIn.com alone. You should have a profile, and post updates 1-3 times per week.

      2) SEO can be squeamish. I understand. I advise you to break it into three parts. On page optimization. Off page optimization. Lastly, social optimization. Dive into one part at a time!

  4. Hi I just started a blog and by just starting I MEAN just starting I’m going too start posting this coming week. I came accross your website and have been really looking around and love what I’ve seen so far but I have a few questions…

    What is and how do you do a Facebook party?
    When you Comment on other peoples blogs do you leave your blog as a signature?
    what is StumbleUpon?
    Enter your articles into article directories..How?

    Thanks for your time :-)

  5. Love Pinterest!

  6. I love your advice on SEO. That’s how I do it too. Break it into smaller divisions and dive into each area, one step at a time. – Kristina

  7. Hey Susie,
    I’m new to blogging and just trying to figure everything out. So glad I stumbled upon your site. Great tips. Thanks for sharing.

    • You are welcome dear!

  8. Love these. I’m doing quite a few, but I definitely need to use LinkedIn and StumbleUpon more consistently. Glad I saw this post tipped on Sverve! {Are you on Sverve? I’d love to endorse you there for blogging…and it’s another way to gain more followers!}

    • I have not heard of it, I’ll check it out :)

  9. Great list of doable things to gain readership.

  10. Just like Sue said I also found you from another blogging linking your article. I’m always looking at ways to get more readers and these were great tips! To this day I still get my most traffic from Pinterest and surprisingly it was from a wine post! LOL I think the next step is linking up more with twitter parties and blog link ups! Thanks again for the great tips!

    • For sure, glad you stopped by :)

  11. Good to see some great tips condensed in short post. They are really too many tasks for anybody but picking up the best rewarding ones is well capable to boost you to next lever.

    • I agree it’s a long list to manage, but you must start somewhere :)

  12. Great advice, thanks!

  13. These are wonderful tips Susie! Thank you for sharing as this list is sure to be extremely helpful to me, as I work to gain more exposure to my new blog!

  14. This is perfect! Thank you :)

  15. Thanks for this! Great list and very helpful!!!

    • You are super welcome!

  16. Hi Susie,

    I just found you through Pinterest so I guess we should add creating pinnable content to this post too :)

    My question is- how do you use stumbleupon?

  17. Thanks for all of these tips! I try and do most of these on a daily basis, but following a new one today…Commenting on a new blog today and will try to do that every day, to expand my vision. Have a beautiful day! :)

    • Thanks for stopping by! Your site rocks as well :)

  18. Newbie to the blogging world myself and really enjoyed this article. Will definitely keep this as a handy reference. THANK!

  19. Thanks for the tips! I need to try Scribd, I’ve never used that before.

  20. Very useful informations! It takes time to make your blog successful and more readable, but it’s definitely worth it I think:)


  21. Thanks for the tips, it felt good that I had already been doing most of them! I am the worst about remembering to use old content to draw in new readers, thanks for the reminder :)
    PS stopping by from Blogelina

  22. Thanks for the great list. So many people say start a newsletter/email and I just don’t have time for that. Plus if you don’t have a lot of readers yet I’m not sure how that would help.

    There are many I need to check out. Thanks.

  23. I’m printing this out now and working on this list! Thanks for the tips!

  24. Wow! Awesome detailed list! Thanks! I need this help to grow my blog!!

  25. Great post Susie, thank you. I’ve now written a plan of how to build readership with KPIs for my first 6 months so i can stay on track and assess my performance (you can tell i worked in Marketing!!)

  26. I have tried a few things listed here but with little success. I do write original and quality content on my website but am struggling to get visitors. Anyways, I just hope that one day I can expand my reach and share my quality content with more number of reader’s. Thank you for this great post :)

  27. This is a great list…so many things I’ve never even heard of! Thanks for all the tips. After reading that, I don’t think anyone would question just how much HARD work and time goes into blogging. :)

  28. I’m a new-ish blogger, and these were all very helpful! Thanks for sharing some of your tips :)

  29. I am so happy to have found your blog on Pinterest. I can’t wait to learn from you.

  30. Great tips. Overwhelming but needed to hear them

  31. Hi Friend,

    i really liked this article soon i will be sharing it on my facebook profile.
    You did with your level best and I advise you being my colleague to take every comment and suggestion especially the critical one very patiently and with open heart. When you try such strictly monitored topics you equally receive criticism so just receive it and take all the positive points from it.
    thanking you
    Keep up your good work!
    Have a good day
    Akshay Naik

  32. These are some really nice and effective 44 points but they also take a lot of time. You I would advise everyone to start from maybe 10 or 20 of these points and then gradually target all of them.

    If you will try to do all these 44 things at once, then you will reach nowhere.

    Thanks for sharing your tips :)

    Of course you have mentioned Pinterest and that’s from where I reach you ^_^

  33. Hi Susie,
    Thanks so much for these great suggestions! I look forward to giving them a try :)

  34. All great tips! My personal favourites…Pinterest ( how I found you) and resharing old posts.

  35. This is a LOT of info! And excellent at that. Some of this I already do, but some I’ve never thought about. Thanks for the tips!

  36. Thank you for the advice. One thing I don’t quite understand, however, is how to use linkdin and stumbleupon to promote my blog. Could you please give me some insight about this?

  37. Great post, but I am doimg all this but still unable to increase my traffic from 1k visitors per day :(

  38. This is a great blog post! Thank you so much for sharing :)

  39. Thanks for all the great tips! I recently rebranded my blog, and am really wanting to make in flourish in 2015, all of these tips will come in handy!

  40. Thanks, Susie, for this valuable list! I’m going to use it as a checklist and work my way down the list. Found you on Pinterest, so yes, Pinterest is worth mentioning twice in your list!

  41. thanks

  42. Great to-do list! I’ve got some work to do!

  43. These are really helpful! Thank you for sharing:)

  44. Thanks so much for this list! I’m new in the blogging world and am soaking up all the tips and tricks I can get from experienced bloggers like yourself :)

    Question, you said submit your posts to article directories. Are there sites you’d recommend for this?

    THANK YOU! :)
    xx, jen


  45. A great share!
    I think that your precursor… About starting from your passion… Is critical! Along with having a clear message… And being consistent [not just consistently writing great content on a regular basis… But also, by being consistent and clearly branded across your website].

    I have just had a recent win, where I decided to get super narrow… And focus on helping women entrepreneurs [and mompreneurs] create a biz [and life] they love… And now that I’m coming from such a clear place of focus… It makes the 44 things above – easier to do… Because I know what I want to achieve!!

  46. This is exactly the type of inspiration I love running across! Thanks!

  47. I am just starting my blog and have been surfing around looking for ideas on how to get my blog out there loved all your tips and can’t wait to put them into action! Thanks for posting! :)

  48. Just found this post on Pinterest! Thanks so much for sharing! Blessings to you. :-)

  49. Thanks for the great list! I was able to put some into play right away and others I need to keep on my to-do list! Found you on Pinterest and will be sharing again! Thanks again.

  50. Thanks for the tips! They’re quick, easy, and seem to work! :)


  51. Great tips! It’s nice to see some new ideas to try. :) Building up readers has been really tough for me and I have a hard time promoting myself.

  53. j should print this out and keep it with me all the time. Great list!

  54. This was great! Thanks for the advice! I just started a blog and this was very helpful!

    -God Bless

  55. Hi there,

    Thank you for your helpful tips and your encouragement for the stay at home moms and wannabes. I am hopeful my new blog will provide me some of those freedoms,

    Wish me luck!

  56. Thanks for great tips.

  57. thanks for the tips. I’ve come back to this post a few times since I’ve started my blog. Great post!

  58. great ideas! I am a blogger too and would love for you to check mine out

  59. Thanks so much for this post! I stumbled upon your page on Pinterest! I am a newbie blogger and am looking to expand my reach. I was wondering if you had any tips/advice on pinning. I follow a lot of Food Bloggers on Pinterest and notice they normally attach a photo alongside their recipes. What about in the case where your text has no media? Would you suggest finding and/or creating media to go on to Pinterest?

  60. It’s amazing that this post is several years old and still attracting readers. Great advice! I am new to blogging and I have been doing some of these. I don’t know if you are still reading and replying to the comments on this post, but I have a question. What is a Facebook party and how do you host one? Thanks in advance.

  61. I just started blogging and I found these tips very helpful. Thanks for sharing them!

  62. Thank you so much! I have tons of new things to add on my to-do list 😀

  63. Thank you soo much for sharing ! I am VERY new to blogging and am so excited to begin this journey and hopefully make many new friends along the way :) This is just what I needed!
