How I got 6,000 unique monthly visitors in 9 months

How I got 6,000 unique monthly visitors in 9 months

Earlier this year (january 25th) I launched this English travel blog. I’d already been running a Dutch version of this blog for about 2,5 years, and I figured the world was ready for the international version. I love writing in English and the more people I could inspire to travel and take their future into their own hands, the better! But then… soon after launching I got caught up in running two websites, a business and a Facebook group. It was too much, and this blog kind of fell of the wagon. I only managed to write a blogpost per month.

But despite only blogging about once a month, and spending very little time on promotion, I managed to grow to a consistent 6,000 unique visitors per month! How did I do that? I will explain.

On january 25th I launched this website, Explorista.net, ready to take over the world with my awesome posts on travel and business. One month later my site has attracted 1000+ unique visitors. Not as much as I hoped (everyone hopes to have their blog break trough instantly, right?), but also definitely not bad considering the saturated landscape. It’s a great base to build from.

And since I know many bloggers that have been blogging for months for their parents and neighbors grandmother, I figured I’d explain step by step what I did (and what you can do) to launch your blog to the greatest success possible.
