How to increase traffic to your blog
If you've got some technical expertise and you're looking to increase your blog traffic stick to this winning formula: the "How to". A successful how to blog post (and your key to increasing blog traffic) has four key elements:
- Blog Title

- Keyword repetition
1. Blog title
When it comes to titling your blog post, try naming your post to something you might type in as a Google search. People looking for answers will often type in things like "How to increase blog traffic" or "How to increase traffic to your blog". Pick a title and stick to it.
2. Easy to read data
Blog posts that are easy to read get a better response. Try adding things like bulleted or numbered lists, if that makes sense.
3. Code or example
If you're getting technical, provide a snippet of code or examples of what you're talking about.
4. Keyword repetition
