How to Drive Website Traffic from Medium
You’ve just published an article on Medium, and now you want to start getting traffic from there—but how? Your first instinct might be to share your article on Twitter and Facebook, but this will only drive readers who are already familiar with you to the article, and it won’t get you any new readers or followers. What you really need to do is use all of the social networks that exist and target them specifically at the people who would be interested in your content. Here are some tips for doing that.
The Top 5 Tips to Generate Organic Website Traffic from Medium
1. Create content that is truly original.
2. Share your articles on relevant social media channels (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Reddit).
3. Create a Medium profile and follow other writers who share content in your niche for inspiration or for the chance to reshare their articles with your followers, who might find them valuable as well.
4. Engage with other readers by commenting on posts and asking questions in the comments section below each post (it’s also a good idea to ask questions before you publish an article).
5. Finally, it is important to maintain consistency.
One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by using Medium’s built-in tools that allow you to schedule when your articles are published, what time they go live, and which category they are under. For example, if I wanted my next three articles to be shared at 8am on Tuesday morning every week under my Blogging Tools category then I could use these settings: Schedule date: Tuesday morning
Follow Influencers in your Niche
Find people who are influential in your niche and engage with them. Comment on their posts, like their content, or share it. Follow them on social media (Twitter and Instagram for example). Share their content in social media. You can even message them if you want to request a more personalized connection. This will help you get your name out there and establish a reputation among influencers in your industry.
Also, try reaching out to influencers by commenting on their blog posts or sending them messages about something that interests you. Keep it short, but let the influencer know what’s going on before asking for anything else. And don’t forget to be polite! Remember to say thank you when someone comments on one of your posts or shares one of your articles. Offer genuine advice when appropriate and give constructive criticism as necessary. Remember that everyone is trying to grow their personal brand, so don’t hesitate to ask for advice either!
Write Content That Sets you Apart From the Rest
Promoting your articles on Medium can be a great way to attract new readers and drive traffic back to your website. Here are a few tips for optimizing your content for this platform:
-Add tags, categories, and annotations in order to organize related articles on the site. -Be sure you’re following the medium community guidelines. -Write an attention-grabbing headline that previews what people will learn from reading the post. -Include a URL link to your website in the description of every post so that people know where they can find more of your work. -Promote your posts by sharing them across social media channels and ask others to share them as well. If possible, make it easy for other bloggers with large followings to share your work by creating images or videos highlighting key points in the post or by including a short summary at the top.

If you’re looking for a way to drive traffic to your site, look no further than Medium.

Focus on Quality Rather than Quantity
Medium is a content platform where anyone can find their audience. Many writers, myself included, use it as a way to build an audience and drive traffic back to our own sites. But how do you get those eyeballs? I’ll walk you through the process of getting your content featured on Medium and then driving traffic back over to your site. The process includes submitting your work for consideration in the link roundup, promoting it on social media, and cross-promoting with other contributors in the roundup. If your submission is accepted, you will receive an email asking if you want to promote it. You should say yes because the promotion allows readers who read that day’s roundups to see your post when they click See more. If not enough people view the post, however, they may never see it again so make sure they know about this opportunity!
Join the Link Roundups
Medium is the fastest way to publish and distribute your articles. If you write an in-depth piece that captures reader’s attention, Medium allows readers to share it easily via social media. Share your article on Twitter or Facebook with a short introduction and a link pointing people back to the original post. You can also use tools like Buffer or Hootsuite as an alternative way of scheduling your posts. When you’re not sure what else to do with all the content on your site, ask yourself these two questions: What would my ideal reader want? and What are people currently searching for?.
Feedly is another great tool for bringing fresh reading material from multiple blogs into one place.
