Top 10 Tips for Getting More Food Blog Views!Β 

10 tips to get more food blog views - don't be demoralised anymore by ignored blog posts. Use these 10 strategies to boost your traffic and grow your blog audience - click to read these food blogging tips on Knead to Dough

1. Write quality posts, regularly.Β I normally post on Tuesdays, with additional posts usually falling on a Thursday/Friday. If you have a regular day to post on, your readers will know when to check back to your blog, so it’s easier to build up a following.Β 

2. Be helpful and answer a question. Whether that’s providing the recipe someone is looking for, experimenting with a new method, or responding to another baker’s request, it’s so important to offer something useful to your readers. It means you can become a resource they return to time and time again.

3. Eat with your eyes. Make sure you share your posts on Instagram and Pinterest, because none of us can resist some good foodie pictures now can we?

4. Get your friends on board. Share your blog posts on Facebook and see if friends or family will share it too. You’ll be amazed how many thousands of people you can reach through sharing – you might even be lucky enough for it to go viral!

5. On that note, make sure you are active on Twitter too! Make use of trending hash tags and blogger retweet accounts to extend your following.

6. Sharing is caring. Upload images of your recipes to food sharing sites like Tasteologie, Tastespotting and Yummly to get more traffic.

7. Make sure your posts are SEO friendly, and Google will become your new front door.

8. Learn what your reader loves, then keep doing it! In 2015 my top recipes involved vanilla chai, shortbread, or brownies. Guess what made it to the top of my planning list for 2016? You guessed, new vanilla chai, shortbread, and brownies recipes.

9. Love the blogging community back. Follow other blogs and comment frequently to build loyal followers. You’ll find blogs you genuinely love and make fellow foodie friends in the process, bonus!

10. Be unique. If there are 10 million chocolate cupcake recipes out there, what is going to be your unique take? For me it was Hot Chocolate Cupcakes dressed with piped whipped cream, marshmallows, and cocoa dust, for example!

Here’s a bonus tip! You’ll notice I’ve linked up to other recipes/content in this blog post as I talk about it. Adding links within posts to other recipes that might be of interest/use the same method/flavours etc. can be another great way to boost your views as each visitor is likely to stay longer on your blog and browse more pages.

      Thank you Rosemary! Pictures are what make or break a recipe for me, you want your results to look as yummy as they taste – especially if you’re sharing them with family or friends! πŸ™‚

    Great tips. I also like to share links to other great blog articles I’ve read. I figure if my audience likes what I write, they’ll probably like what I read too!
