How I Increased My Blog Stats by 50% in One Month

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about blogging tips and advice. There are so many tips I could give, I could create a new series entirely dedicated to blogging tips. But I think it’s just easier to show everyone my Pinterest board full of blogging resources. It’s been about two years since I started blogging but I didn’t take it seriously until now. And since I started taking my blog seriously, my stats have immensely improved. Between the months of February and March, I managed to increase my blog stats by 50%. It definitely takes time and dedication but you have to put in work to see results. Although your blog stats might be different than mine, here’s how YOU can increase your blog stats in one month.

Above are screenshots of my February and March blog stats. By looking at the numbers and bar graphs, you can see a significant increase in my blog stats between the two months. My views increased by 217 (or 47%). The number of visitors increased by 82 (or 45%). My likes nearly doubled from 55 in February to 106 in March. Lastly, my comments more than doubled from 45 in February to 98 in March.

Plan and Publish More Content

The most important step to increasing your blog stats is to actually publish more content! It’s not shown in the stats above but I only published 4 posts in February and 8 posts in March. Just like my likes and comments, my number of posts published also doubled. As I’ve mentioned in my most recent Plan With Me post, I plan out my posts a month ahead and try to stick to my schedule as much as I can. More content means more views and stats!

Promote Blog Posts on Social Media

Another way to increase your blog stats in one month is by promoting your blog on other social media accounts! As soon as one of my blog posts publishes, I promote it by queuing posts on my Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest pages. There are various sites and apps you can use to manage your editorial calendar and to market your social media. My personal favorites are Hootsuite and Later.

Network with Other Bloggers

In order to advance and succeed in the work world, you have to network with peers and professionals. The exact same thing goes for the blogging world! Networking with other bloggers will help improve your blog stats. The easiest way to network with other bloggers is by following back, commenting, and liking other bloggers’ posts. I like to take it to the next level by following other bloggers on all social media platforms listed on their blogs. I am also part of a Facebook group called Beauties on Fire, where beauty and fashion bloggers get together and give each other support and advice. I’m sure there are many more ways to network with other bloggers and to increase your blog stats!

What methods do you use to increase your blog stats?

Let me know in the comments! I’m sure other readers will benefit from your tips. Once again, your blog stats are different than mine and might not increase by 50% in one month. But it’s definitely worth putting more time and effort into your blog!

  1. These are really good tips! I noticed an increase in views as well as I started posting more and more blog posts. 🙂 mine are still mediocre numbers but I think I’m OK with that for now given that im so busy with college. Once I’m done I’ll have to see what else I can do to make it better lol.
    But thanks for the tips!

    1. Right? Consistency is definitely key! The more your post, the more people want to come back to your blog!

      I think my numbers are still mediocre too but I’ve definitely come a long way! And I’m sure you’re doing just fine with your blog 🙂

  2. It’s not just about numbers but it’s encouraging to see them increase! 🙂
    A big aspect for me is engagement on other blogs. I really enjoy reading everyone’s posts and commenting – I find that in turn means more engagement on my blog too.
    Keep it up!

    1. You’re absolutely right. It’s not about the numbers but seeing it increase motivates me to write more! It’s nice knowing that people enjoy my blog and keep wanting to come back!

      Thanks girl, I try to stay engaged with other blogger’s posts too but it can get hard sometimes when you have other things going on. I’m trying to designate a little time every day to do it though!


  3. Agree with everything you said! When I first started ‘blogging’ some years ago, I didn’t engage that much with bloggers nor did I post that much meaning I didn’t have much engagement. Now that I’ve found my audience/content/style etc. there’s so much more engagement now cos I’ve found my consistency and made myself comfortable in the blogger community and understand how it works to network 🙂

    My stats are still kinda mediocre but honestly, compared to before, it’s become such an improvement!

    1. I’m glad you agree with this! And I’m glad we’ve both come a long way since we started blogging. I remember I was so excited when I first hit 100! It’s okay, my stats are still mediocre too but there’s ALWAYS room for improvement. I think that is the most motivating thing. Knowing that people actually enjoy reading your blog and want to come back for more. Let’s continue to grow our blogs!

  4. This pretty much sums it up. I’ve had my blog for almost one year. And it was when I started posting more and interacting more that I saw my followers even triple! It’s not easy to follow a posting schedule though. I’ve recently started fitnessing. So if you work 8-5 pm and then cook and rush to the gym… It get’s harder. But I find that having a fix writing day can help so I can preschedule my posts!! xoxo Sarah
