Blogging when you’re a beginner is tough. I’m sure you’ve experienced writer’s block or even worse, no blog traffic. And without traffic, you can’t make money blogging or grow your online business.

Even for us, it took a lot of time, effort, and a simple blogging strategy that helped us drive over 220,000 visitors to our blog every single month (for free).

You’ll learn exactly how to use our blogging strategy along with helpful tips to start getting readers and fans to your blog.

The first step is to come up with topics that are proven to generate traffic.

I’m sure you’d agree that you should write about something you are passionate about or interested in. But this can often lead to failure.

If you want your blog to be successful, you have to frame your content so that it’s centered around your readers. The truth is that people are interested in themselves and not necessarily yours.

While you can make educated guesses, you can use tools like Ahrefs’ Keywords Explorer to find the exact keywords people are searching for in Google. This will allow you to accurately gauge popularity and make smart decisions on what you should write about.

The second step is to assess search intent.

This means the reason behind a searcher’s query. If you don’t understand why someone is searching for a specific query, then you won’t be able to get them to click on your article.

You can use a basic formula called “the 3 C’s of search intent”, which is covered in-depth.

The next step is to write a data-driven outline.

Writing out your thoughts is great, but it can also result in missing out on opportunities to get more blog traffic.

You’ll learn how to analyze other top pages that are getting lots of traffic and integrate what’s working for them into your own posts before you even start writing your draft.

The next step is to write your first draft.

You’ll learn some blogging tips you can use to write excellent posts that will keep your readers engaged. You’ll also learn a few techniques such as the Pomodoro technique which will help you write blog posts fast.

The next step is to edit your draft.

Here, you’ll be shown some free tools that will help you edit like a pro. These tools can improve accuracy, speed, and make the whole experience painless.

Best of all, one of the tools will help you keep the readability of your article perfect for your audience.

In addition to these, you’ll learn a few extra tips at Ahrefs. One of these tips has helped us build a loyal following and enables us to consistently produce our best content.

  1. Dear #SAM OH” I am newly your subscriber on your channel your videos and your product both are virtuous but one of a snag. ahrefs software very expensive for the initial stage for the start of small business.
    my website is link text

  2. Hi, i am not good content writer , is there a software u can suggest , not rich for paying people

  3. Best video about writing a blog post, ever! You gave me some I could easily follow from start to stop. And as I bought Hemingway App AND Grammarly about two weeks ago, it was good to hear them mentioned here. You got my sub 🙂

  4. The most encouraging but still feasible advice, I have heard on this topic.
    Thanks for writing it.

  5. Greate video…!! Qn-> Shall I need to take permission from other site owners to link their site URL in my blog post….?Or is it okay to embed the URL directly without asking…??

  6. Thanks for sharing. Currently working on blog content for my company

  7. @ahrefs Hey Sam Oh, big fan. I actually signed up for AHREFS yesterday. It has helped me identify over 200 broken links in my blog that could hurt my SEO. I fixed them all.

    Question. I am in the dress shoe, suiting, dress shirts etc niche for MEN. I have done a lot of research and search volumes seem either too low, nonexistent or way too competitive. I have been blogging for 2.5 years and all my “review” articles are within the first 1-3 spots on SERP. I even have a few massive guides that rank superbly. However I want to consistently grow my traffic now.

    How do I go about to search for more competitive, niche genres? For example, I want to write a big article about say: The 5 Best Dress Oxfords”. It is a little disheartening to see zero results or only the big massive companies like Business Insider publish rubbish guides that still rank high. Any advice? Would you be willing to do a video on a more competitive niche search for blogging article?

    Thank you for the excellent videos I learn a lot.

  8. thanks, a lot of wonderful information…..I take your idea to put on my blog post….I mention and inform you before upload…..

  9. creating outline based on the data before write a blog post really help me a lot. thanks brother
