How To Stand Out & Boost Blog Traffic In November

Other than writing on November blog post topics people are searching for, there are a few ways to boost your blog traffic this Fall.

Since it’s a busy time of the year, and there are so many searching on popular topics MANY bloggers write about, you’ll be competing for clicks. 

So, here are a few tips on how to get people to check out your post and stick around reading it. 

  • Focus on your SEO blog post title – the one that shows up in search engine results. Use keywords your readers would use, but also power words that entice the reader.
  • Make your actual blog title speak to a solution or benefit. So instead of “Holiday Cocktail Party Ideas” use “5 Sparkling Holiday Cocktail Party Ideas, That’ll Wow Your Guests” I like to use CoSchedule’s Headline Studio – an analyzer – to check my title’s clickability quotient.
  • Visuals matter! Your feature image should attract and work with the topic. Use visuals that haven’t been overused. Consider using stock photo sites with photos you can purchase.  Check out Deposit Photos, or Creative Market for general stock photos. There are many gorgeous feminine stock photo sites with memberships and individual collection packages where you can find unique photos as well.

Finally – Pinterest LOVES seasonal content. If you can pin a whole batch of pins on your November topics sooner than later, you’ll find your pins showing up in searches on time. In November!

Use my free Pinterest templates for Canva. They’ll help you quickly design fresh pins for your new November blog posts.

Give Your Readers What They’re Seeking This November

People are constantly looking for ideas, inspiration and solutions. This is so very true in November.

It’s a busy time of the year, and we want quick answers and results. So if you can deliver content that helps facilitate this, you’re a winner. I hope these November blog post ideas help you out!

After all, everybody wants to enjoy Fall days, whether outdoors or cozy at home, before the super busy Holiday season hits us.

Make it happen, and you’ll be a blog favourite for many of your readers!
