Every blogger that I know would like to figure out some great tips on how to create blog posts that drive more traffic to their blog. There are a ton of ways that you can do that. I think the best way is to create blog posts that people want to read. Sounds simple enough. Some call these Pillar articles, writing killer content , or other titles but whatever your name you have for the process the goal is the same. Create useful content that truly helps your reader.
What is the purpose of wanting to drive traffic to a blog ? That depends. You may be selling an ebook like my Get Famous Mom Blogger’s Resource (
shameless informative plug), you may have some great blogging tips your readers must know, you may be running a sweepstakes or a giveaway that you want to share, or you really want to tell people how yucky the day was with your baby crying and suffering from mom guilt we all experience s from time to time. If your a guy reading this your excluded from that last part. ( Not the guilt just the mommy)
Either way we all want traffic for our blogs. A blog with no traffic is like a ghost town & ghost towns are pretty lonely places. So what do we do? Write. Keep writing. Write some more. Then, promote, keep promoting, promote some more. Via social media, FB Twitte , because after all any social media you share is an avenue of promotion for your article.
Speaking of promoting via social media, I just joined Triberr I am starting a tribe called the Soaring bloggeristas if you’ve wanted to join Triberr let me know and if I have room I’ll add you to our tribe. Comment below or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org

So what is pillar content exactly? Well, it’s a super great article that brings lots of new readers who tell a friend and they tell two friends and so on and so on and before you know it your content gets spread throughout the blogosphere, you gain more followers and we all ride off into the “I’m a super cool blogger because I have tons of readers” sunset.
How do you create content that accomplishes those types of goals? Easy.
- How To Articles
You know the kind that say this is how you fix your car step one through six, this is how you paint your baby toe nail, or this is how you add pillar content to your blog, like I’m doing right now.
- You can always stir the pot
I’m not a big fan of this, I can confront any person on the planet but I prefer peace. However you could for an example begin a series of posts on the Presidential elections. If you’re readers would enjoy that.
Primarily what you want to do with Pillar Content is show your readers that you are the expert by being informative blog tips, or tips on your particular niche to drive traffic.
- List Articles like a Top 10, top 100, or top 56
You can post a series on the top 10 ways to get a ton of comments. Or top 10 ways to avoid blogger burnout ( hey I think I may write that one)
In any case you get the point. Pillars are just that they hold everything else together, weak pillars, caved in roof, squashed blogger. Get the picture? So please don’t get squashed. Write some great posts and if you don’t have any series on your blog than get busy.
