1. Choose your blog topics carefully
Choosing the topics that you will talk about in your blog is very important, and it should not be done randomly, and based on your personal preferences, but you should choose the topics that your audience is interested in and looking for, and you have to spend some effort and time in this aspect.
Here are some important points that will help you choose the topics for your blog on the right basis:
a) Research the keywords used by your target audience
I came across a great Google keyword-planner tool, through which I became aware of the keywords my target audience is using in their search for topics, and this changed the results dramatically.
b) Monitor and track your audience to know their preferences
There are two different ways you can learn more about the topics your audience prefers:
1) Comments in the blog and on social networking sites whose owners request specific topics to write about.
Here, comments and audience interaction will greatly enable you to know what your audience is interested in, what topics your audience needs to read about, what are popular in your industry at a particular time, and what your audience needs to know more about.
2) Constant monitoring of Google Analytics
Through the Google Analytics tool, you will be able to learn many indicators that enable you to create more demanded content, including:
Extract lists of high-traffic topics and try to replicate their pattern in new topics.
Extracting lists of topics in which the visitor stays the longest, and trying to identify the reason for that and using it in new topics.
Extract lists of topics that do not get traffic and try to find out the cause and treat it.
Extracting lists of topics in which the visitor remains only a few seconds and trying to find out the cause and treat it.
c) Watch your competitors
Competitors always represent a very important educational focus in the world of the Internet, and this applies to every business or business connected to the Internet. In the world of the Internet, you can easily and by using some simple tools reach your competitors, and you can study their strengths and weaknesses, and find out the things on which their success depends.
SimilarWeb is one of the sites where you can find out the most important competitors for your blog, through it you can find out the top 10 competitors for your blog for free, and without even registering an account.
Note: Monitoring competitors and learning from them does not mean copying competitors’ content, stealing their ideas or stealing their content, but here we mean studying competitors in order to get to know the world around you, knowing their strengths and weaknesses, and making use of statistically and analytically in order to produce content of higher value, nor It is widely available in the market.
Now you know how you can get the right ideas to write about in your blog, and here comes the role of the next method to attract more visitors to your blog, and it is about quality…
2. Make sure you provide high quality content that is worth your visitors' time
As a blog owner, you have to provide value to your visitors. You must provide them with unique and unique content that is only present in your blog, of course this starts from the step of defining the idea of your blog from the ground up.
If you have enough knowledge and passion for the field you are talking about in your blog, then you will pass the first test in getting free visitors to your blog.
It is worth noting that this point is a pivotal point, and the success of all other efforts to get visitors depends on it. Without good content, you will not be able to achieve anything in the world of blogging.
Here are some points that will help you provide good content that is worth your visitors' time:
a) Never copy other people's content
One of the bad points in the internet world, especially in Arabic content, is stealing the content of other blogs and publishing it illegally. Did you know that this happens with frequent winners, but fortunately we have the tools that make the stealer pay the price.
In any case, and away from the ethical and professional aspect, let us address some practical and objective points regarding the danger of stealing the content of others:
Google has gotten pretty smart at spotting plagiarized content even if there's been a paraphrase at the highest level.
There are laws to protect copyright, and there are tools to report this, and then your blog will be affected very negatively.
There is no reason why visitors should read your plagiarized articles from your blog, and leave the source (which is often a popular and heavyweight blog).
b) Research well and take the time to research before writing any article
Whoever follows the winners knows very well that I (Magdy Kamil) is the founder of the Winners blog and is responsible for it from an administrative point of view. I also wrote many and many articles in it, so in my work I have very good experience regarding a topic like this one I am talking about today (methods of obtaining free visitors for your blog).
Did you know that I spent over 5 full hours researching and reading about ways to get free visitors to blogs! In which I read more than 15 articles in the most famous and most important international blogs.
I'm telling you this story not to flex my muscles, but to tell you that good and deep research is essential to come up with a good article, even if you have experience and information on the topic you're writing about.
c) Try to create a new and distinctive style in your articles
Make your style distinctive and more close to the language spoken by your visitors, so they will feel familiar with your blog, they will invite their friends to visit your blog as well, and they will enthusiastically share your topics on social media.
You have to be friendly about your topics and show your visitors your human side, and you can also share with them some of your experiences and expertise, the more readers feel that you are close to them, they will emotionally connect with you and visit your blog constantly.
d) Post more topics
Does this have anything to do with quality? Yes, of course, the more topics in your blog, this means that you cover a lot of aspects about your blog’s specialization, and this of course affects the quality of the blog as a whole, quality requires comprehensiveness and coverage of topics from many aspects and angles.
Example: We at seo7u.com, for example, talk about the world of marketing, and we are not satisfied with writing topics about e-marketing in general, but we talk about a lot of specializations and detailed points, so you will find the reader finding all the topics he needs in one place, and for this he trusts us A large audience of followers.
Whatever your current results or the number of visitors you have, you should continue to include more topics. Continuing to add new topics, will make these results in a permanent improvement.
e) Continuously improve your blog content
Many beginner bloggers think that their work with articles ends once they are published, but in fact, in many cases, the work after the article is published is the most important.
To develop your blog content, you have to work in two very important directions:
1) Update old articles
You have to be aware that your skills as a blogger develop over time, gaining experiences and knowledge that make you able to produce higher quality articles, and in this case you should not deprive your old articles of the product of development in your experiences and knowledge, so go back to the old articles and develop them and improve the content in them.
Of course, the importance of updating articles increases when there is an important change related to the article. For example, if you are talking about a specific thing and there has been a change in this thing, you must go back and update the article to be compatible with the change that occurred.
2) Apply your successful strategies in other articles
Let's say here that you have 100 articles in your blog, and you discover that there is a certain strategy that you do (such as a certain style in the introduction) that contributes greatly to the success of the article and the stay of the visitor for a longer period of time.
Here you have to return to some articles that do not get large visits or a large reading period, and start implementing the successful strategy.

Social media is one of the best free ways to get visitors to your blog, if you can use it smartly and in the right way.
First, you have to create accounts for your blog on all the popular social networking sites, but you have to focus on two or three platforms at first, and then you can expand to the rest of the platforms. This of course depends on the nature of your audience and the platforms they use, and the nature of your blog's niche.
Here are a set of points that will help you use social networking sites smartly to get free visitors to your blog:
Focus your time and effort on the appropriate platforms for you and your audience.
Build a fan base first, and try to build bridges of trust between you and your followers.
Do not put links from your blog at the beginning stage.
Put the benefit of your followers first.
Try to balance posts with links from your blog with other posts that are simple and directly useful to your audience.
Interact with the audience and respond to comments, don't ignore any comment or suggestion.
It is worth noting that YouTube is one of the social networking sites, which you should use to get free visitors to your blog. You have to create an official YouTube channel for your blog, through which you can record videos on the same topic as the blog.
Try to translate text articles into videos, and do not forget to put the blog link in the description of the video, also choose an appropriate title and description for the video you are uploading.
It is worth noting and from personal experience, that only by making one video and uploading it to your channel that bears the same name as your blog, you will get an important advantage, which is the appearance of this video on the first page in Google search results for the name of the blog.

The correct way to take advantage of the Koura website in bringing visitors to your blog is through real participation, and providing a benefit to those who ask questions.
It is worth noting that Quora is now available in Arabic, and by subscribing to it, you will get messages from the site telling you the most important questions that are asked about a particular specialty.
Then you can easily go to the question and write your own professional answer, and then you can mention one of the appropriate articles on your blog as a source to get more information about the answer to the question.

Therefore, I strongly advise you to start working on the implementation of the methods above, and continue working on them regardless of the results you will get tomorrow, but trust that things will improve a lot over time.
