Read my little tutorial on how to make your blog look bigger and more professional. More brands and other bloggers can write to you with cooperation offers after implementing my tip.
Quick + easy tip on how to make your blog look bigger
Here it is: connect your Google Analytics with SimilarWeb. Below I explain what I’m talking about and how to do it.
Step 1 | Go to similarweb.com and install their extension in your browser
You’ll see this option at the very bottom of their page.
After the installation, you will see SimilarWeb button, probably in the top right corner of your browser. You can click it while visiting any website to check its’ stats.
I was using it, curious whether a blog or shop, or any other website has many readers, and to be honest, whether it’s bigger than my blog. As a blogger sometimes you get offers from brands that are smaller than you. But you don’t know about it before this kind of fast research.
So I was seeing statistics of my blog and most other websites. But recently they’ve made a change and they no longer show data of websites with low traffic, like a few thousand sessions monthly.
But they offer connecting your website’s data in SimilarWeb with your Google Analytics to show even little website’s statistics. And this is what you should do.
Here is the chance to outstand from hundreds of thousands of little blogs or shops, or whatever website you run.
You can look professional and not just small!
Here are easy steps to make your blog more outstanding and appealing for potential collaborators (brands are checking your stats on SimilarWeb or similar (heh) platforms).
Step 2 | Open your website in the browser
Step 3 | Being on your blog, click the SimilarWeb button
Step 4 | Click Verify your website
You’ll be redirected to the SimilarWeb website.
Step 5 | Choose Connect Publicly and follow the easy steps, including logging to your Google account and confirming that you want to send the data to SimilarWeb
Step 6 | After some time check what the SimilarWeb button shows on your blog
And instead of looking at this sad picture telling that the website barely exists:
Enjoy your blog’s more professional look:
And it’s not just the look. It’s not only the way how to make your blog look bigger. Even more important benefits can come from the fact that caring about details like showing your data in the SimilarWeb tool, you show that you treat your blog professionally, that it is a business for you and that you keep up to date with the blogging industry and its tools.
