After starting a blog,you feel like you're in a right track,yet,you are struggling to get enough traffic on daily basis.
Ultimately,number of visitors play a vital role to make your blogs popular.You have written some best articles but you are unable to crack 1000 unique visitors per month and only few of your posts getting search traffic.
So ,where are all the visitors?
This post is for you which indicates some reasons why your blog posts not getting enough traffic.
1)You are a newbie blogger
At the initial stage,your blog is not going to get tons of readers overnight.It takes time to build up readership.

2)Focus on creating Quality Content
Again,content is the king.The quality of your articles depends on your quality thought and writing skill.Try to use some humour in your posts so that the readers never gets bored while reading your creative posts.
Make sure that you are thoroughly checking the grammar and spelling of your paragraphs.If you have great thoughts and ideas but unable to express them in a professional way,you should write it it on your own and get it reviewed by your friends or family members.Everyone can make mistakes.
After all,we are human,but if really struggle with grammar and clarity,have someone proof everything you post.But gradually,it all be fine.
Remember,writing an error free article might not be enough to attract your audience,it needs to be more interesting ,engaging and informative.It comes by practice.It's something you should work on.
3.Post articles that people are searching for
As I have mentioned regarding optimisation of quality of your blog content but what's the worth of quality if your visitors can't find it ?.
Search engines fully dependent on bots-how they understand and rank your content.So,make sure your are including most important keywords in your keywords,catchy titles,attractive images etc.I know,you are working hard to express your ideas in to the articles but you don't put target keywords in your post.
What I mean to say is -you should help the search engine bots to understand your content.
4)Follow Linking strategy
You must want your readers stay connected to your blog for a period and subscribe to your blog.It's possible if you provide the visitors more and more information regarding your topic by linking your articles internally and externally.
For example,I have noticed that many newbie bloggers simply write Facebook instead of providing a hyperlink which will take them to Facebook.com.Of course,linking your blogs gives you best user experience and improves credibility in terms of SEO.
If you are thinking that it will increase your bounce rate,you can just make the external links open in new tabs.
I would recommend to optimise your older posts regularly.It's true that writing a fresh content will take some time but improving your existing blog posts puts very good impact on your visitors.Link your latest articles to the older posts and improve the SEO of older posts on daily basis.
Updated information attracts the users and keep them engaged in the form of comments and social media shares.

5.Optimize your Image names and titles
It's recommended for the you to use images in in your blog posts that not only make your article look awesome, but also puts a positive impact on SEO.There are several SEO friendly plugins available which automatically add ALT tags to your images.
Some bloggers often ignore using ALT tags in their images but it affects the SEO of your articles.
Make sure that your renaming the image names relevant to your topic of your post.
Let me explain with an example:
Suppose,you want to include an image in your article about "How to write Quality content ?" and you created an image with name "xyz.jpeg".It's a big mistake.You should rename the image to "How to write quality content.jpeg" or whatever relevant name you want to keep appropriate to your post
