Include other links of your blog post with applicable content. You want readers to stay on your site. So include appropriate links of your previous post of your content. Of course you don’t have to put in every links of your posts.

If you have great photography skill or able to doodle something on Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop then you should publish those images on your blog. When you upload your images on third party service such as Flickr or Niice. Through this you create another traffic via Image Search.

Great tips! Especially this with mobile optimization. A lot of blog still don’t have responsive design while more and more people read blogs on mobile phones or tablets, ie. while traveling.
My tip for growth hacking would be using social listening application to track online conversations related to your topic, join them, engage and invite to the blog. It looks natural, you reach people who are already interested in the topic and helps build strong relations with audience. I use BRAND24 internet monitoring and analyzes app for this purpose and I truly recommend to try it. It’s also good way to find influencers and natural blog’s ambassadors 🙂
