In order to attract more audience to your blog, you need to write a rousing piece. Give your take on a topic that is currently really hot, or share your information on something that you believe is bound to leave people shocked. While you do not have to be concerned about the number of people who agree with what you say, it is extremely important to keep facts intact instead of distorting them or misrepresenting them, as that will tend to drive people away and keep them from taking you seriously.
Build an audience. While you aiming to attract thousands of people to your blog, you need to understand that it cannot happen overnight and will require some patience. However, you need a steady audience during this take-off stage, one that would continue to return to your blog every day to agree or disagree with your latest piece. This small group of people will be the ones who will give your content the push that it needs to go all the way to the top.
When you write, do so passionately instead of just filling up space. Readers can sense emotion in a piece. As a blogger, you want to connect with your audience and trigger their emotions. Once again, it does not really matter if this emotion is love, sympathy or hate. Your aim is to make them react to your content. Dull and bland writing is only going to get one response from the audience and that is boredom.
Make the most of viral plugins. A lot of bloggers make the mistake of not utilising viral plugins. These plugins help to generate more traffic by letting your audience conveniently share your blog with their friends on various social networking platforms such as Facebook. By not utilising viral plugins, you are making a grave mistake of shutting out free publicity.
One of the most effective ways to make your blog go viral is by creating a viral video. Remember, it was a YouTube video that helped Justin Bieber get discovered. A lot of other videos have gone viral and make the people in them famous, or notorious in some cases. Having a super-cool or extremely controversial video on your blog will make it go viral in no time.
