How I Generated 37,391 Visitors to My Blog Post | Neil Patel

By | August 26, 2019


Are you tired of writing
blog posts that no one reads? So many people are. And you know what, you’re not alone. I used to be there. But that doesn’t happen to me anymore. My latest blog post got
over 37,000 visitors. And you know what, it’s not
just my latest blog post, almost each and every
single one of my blog posts gets around 37,000 visitors. Hi everyone, I’m Neil Patel. And today I’m gonna share with you how I generate 37,391 visitors to each and every single
one of my blog posts. (upbeat music) Now before we get started, make sure you subscribe to this channel. That way when I release more
marketing tips like this, you’ll get notified. Now I have a question for you. How many of you generate
more than 1,000 visitors to any one of your blog posts? If you receive more than 1,000 visitors, leave a comment with “Yes” below. If you don’t, leave a comment with “No”. The reason I’m curious is the
tips I’m gonna show you today should generate you over
1,000 visitors at least. Yeah, you may not get
37,000 visitors like me, you can work your way up there. But you should get at
least 1,000 visitors. And if you don’t, you can leave a comment with “Neil, I use your tips,
I don’t get 1,000 visitors.” And I’ll personally help you out. The first tip I have for you
is when you write a blog post, you’re naturally linking up to people. If you’re not, that means
you’re not citing your sources, you don’t have references in there, it’s not gonna make
you seem like a expert. So for example, if I have a
stat in one of my blog posts, I link out to where I got that stat from. By linking out to other websites, it’ll help you get more traffic. Here’s what I mean. Let’s say I linked out
to this guy named Curtis, and he has an amazing
blog about marketing. I would email him being like, “Hey Curtis, I have to say
I’m a huge fan of your work. “So much so I linked out to
you in my latest blog post. “Cheers, Neil. “P.S. If you share this blog post “on your favorite social network, “it would make my day.” Sending simple emails like that out to everyone you link to
is likely to generate a ton of social shares. Especially if you link out to popular people in big websites. Here’s the thing, it doesn’t
matter how big someone is, when you link to someone, it’s flattery. They’re more likely to share it. Even when I get those
emails, it works on me. And hey, I’m the one who ended
up creating this template and it still works on me
and I’m still sharing it. If you don’t believe me, link out to me, send me one of those
emails, and I’ll share it. Of course don’t link out
to me for the sake of it, it has to be relevant for your audience. The second tip I want you to follow is to share your content
on all your profiles. And I don’t mean just going to Facebook and going to LinkedIn, and going to Twitter and
sharing your content. I’m talking about when
you share your blog post on Facebook, write a few
sentences before you post it. Same with LinkedIn. Same with all the major
social networks out there. And I don’t want you to do this once, I want you to share the
same piece of content multiple times throughout
the next six months. This ensures that your content, your site is continually getting more
and more traffic over time. Now I have a quick question for you. How many of you share your
content more than once on the same social site? If you share it more than once, leave a comment with the number. Whether it’s three or five or one, if you only share it once, that’s fine. Leave a comment with one. I’m curious, my rule of thumb is I share my blog posts on
Twitter six times per year. So if I write a blog post, I spread it out and I share that post once every two months. And I’m just curious how
often you’re doing it. I mean, ’cause a lot of people are like, “You know you can do that,
that could be spamming.” But you know what, I get
literally no complaints from it. The third tip I have for you
is to respond to all comments. And no, I’m not just
talking about the comments on your blog but I’m
talking about the comments on your Facebook, LinkedIn, and any major social network out there. Here’s the thing that most
people don’t tell you, especially marketers. If you look at the social algorithms, a comment has more emphasis than a like. Think about it, it’s harder
for someone to leave a comment. Harder for you to respond. So when you see people leaving comments on your social profiles when you’re promoting
your blog posts, respond. By doing that, it’s gonna
create more engagement, cause that post to spread more, cause you to get more traffic. And here’s what I do, and
here’s a little quick trick, when I respond to a comment, in some cases I’ll answer
them and I’ll leave, I’ll end the comment with another question which encourages them to come back and leave another comment, which then increases my reach even more. The fourth tip I do, is I
email out everyone on my list about my latest blog post. So I write this blog post, it’s out there, I wanna notify all my
email list subscribers. If you don’t have a big email list, start using tools like Hello
Bar to collect more emails. It works great. And by doing this, what you’ll find is you’ll get a slew of people really quickly to go to your blog post. Make sure that you send
out the email blast within the first hour
the blog post comes out. ‘Cause this is also when you want it to go viral
on the social sites like Facebook, or Twitter. And what you wanna do
within your blog post is make sure you have those icons, for things like share on Twitter, share on Facebook. Makes it easy for them to click a button, get more engagement. Because if your post
right when it comes out gets more engagement on Facebook, what do you think’s gonna happen? It goes viral. That’s much more effective
than if your post generated a ton of shares over the next week. It’s better to get all
those shares right up front right when it comes out. The next tip is send
out a push notification. So with your website, your blog, you should be using
tools like Subscribers. That way when people come to your site they can subscribe with one click and then you can send a message every time you release a new blog post. Similar to email blast, right
when your blog post comes out, you wanna send out that
push notification blast. It’s a great way to get all those people coming to your website which
then encourages that post to go viral on Facebook or any of the major social
platforms that you’re leveraging. The sixth tip I have for you is see who shared out
similar content on the web. So you can go to BuzzSumo
type in other related terms, or technically terms related
to the article you just wrote, see all the other related articles, and click on view shares. This will show you all the other people who shared your competitors content. You can hit them up and be like, “Hey John, “I noticed you shared X-Y and
Z article by author A-B and C. “I have a similar one that came out. “Cheers, Neil.” A lot of times they’ll
respond back with yes. And the last tip I have for you, and this is a bonus tip that
very few people talk about, it’s not really a marketing technique, but it ensures that your posts gets the most Google traffic over time. And this simple tip is
to update your content. Because there’s so many blogs out there and so many blog posts, there’s content on
everything under the sun. You wanna keep your content up-to-date. Google now has an option, the choice to only show
the latest and greatest. They’re not lacking content to index, they’re not gonna show five-year-old posts when they can show better quality posts that are less than one year old. So try to keep your blog posts up-to-date. Once a year, go to all
your most popular posts and update them. So that’s it. Hopefully this helps you get at least 1,000 visitors per blog post. It should, if it doesn’t leave a comment. Once you implement these features, let me know if it doesn’t
and I’ll help you get there. If you want help with marketing, check out my ad agency,

tell your friends. I really do appreciate it. And if you leave a comment, I ensure that I’ll respond to you.

    Hey Neil..don't you take juice away from your own site when you dofollow a link out to another site? This is why I never link out but do use prettylink to reference a nofollow link to another site. Should I change this? Thanks.
