YouTube is a great resource for driving free organic traffic to your website. Maybe it's because Google loves YouTube, and considering that it's the second most popular search engine in the world, gaining exposure on YouTube could be huge. Create useful tutorials and videos that add an immense amount of value and be sure to link to your content through the description.
My company has been working on a large link building project. We’ve already performed extensive keyword research and link analysis and now we’re considering executing an email outreach campaign. However, all the content we’ve created up until this point is geared more towards our target audience as opposed to the key influencers of our target audience. Do you think it would be worth it to try to build backlinks to our existing content or are we better off creating new content that directly appeals to the influencers of our target audience?
If you have spaces for advertising on your website, you can increase your profits by allowing other websites to put pay-per-click ads on your site as you have on others. Then, not only might the visitors who come to your site purchase your products, but they could also click on some of the ads and make you even more money. After all, once you pay for that traffic increase, you’ll be able to show potential ad placers that you get enough traffic to your site to be a good investment. If you have room for enough ads, once you really build traffic, you may be able to offset the cost of your traffic by charging for theirs. In order to avoid scamming when it comes to pay-per-click ads though, it’s a good idea to charge a conversion fee on top of the click fee. This way, you can low ball the click fee to get advertisers to your site, but then charge them extra for each click that makes a purchase on their site. This recent change in pay-per-click has come about because of manipulative people making invalid clicks on ads in order to boost ad revenue with fake visitors.
Before you say it – no, true guest blogging isn’t dead, despite what you may have heard. Securing a guest post on a reputable site can increase blog traffic to your website and help build your brand into the bargain. Be warned, though – standards for guest blogging have changed radically during the past eighteen months, and spammy tactics could result in stiff penalties. Proceed with caution.
If you want to ensure that the traffic you are driving with your AdWords is almost ready to buy what you’re selling, then your ads should be as straightforward as possible. Including the price, shipping fees or discounts in your search ad copy can go a long way to ensure people who do click through are those potential shoppers who are willing to pay your prices, and ultimately more ready to make a buying decision then and there.

I read all the words in your post. To believe me I read “generated generated” words two times at step 3. Okay lets come to point. I believe that I’m producing the right content and that too related to niches. When I started my blog, I’ve already made a list of influential bloggers started following them. I produce the hot/trending content in market and I share every post of all them, but in return I receive a 5% of output towards it. I get interact with each others and don’t know why new comers like me getting struggle for a reply from influencers ? … In most cases is same. Is that they are consider about their followers ? / they have enough/more sales or business?.
If you haven’t used software like BuzzSumo to check out what your competitors are up to, you’re at a huge disadvantage. These services aggregate the social performance of specific sites and content to provide you with an at-a-glance view of what topics are resonating with readers and, most importantly, making the rounds on social media. Find out what people are reading (and talking about), and emulate that kind of content to bring traffic to your website.
If you are looking to drive more traffic to your site, you should start utilizing different SEO tools and keyword research tactics. You need to analyze the different terms that your personas are using to search for solutions to their pain points.

Once you analyze that information, you can start utilizing these terms in your blogging strategy to start driving the right qualified traffic to your site. 
If you’re a B2B company, partnerships can be a great way to drive relevant traffic that is ready to convert to your site. This has been a major way Credo has grown.

Note: Some of the high ranking pages may be on famous websites (Domain Authority of 90+). If so, it’s unlikely you’ll outrank them …unless, their high ranking page isn’t very focused on the topic. If you can make a higher quality page that better indicates it’s relevance by using the keyphrase, you may be able to outrank them! More on using keywords in a bit…

It’s probably no surprise to see social media on this list. It’s an effective way to get more eyeballs on your content and tap into the personal networks of your existing fans. What may surprise you is the importance of hashtags. People have become increasingly picky about the content that they consume, which means they’re turning to hashtags as a way to streamline the influx. Smart use of hashtags enables you to precisely target your ideal customer and expand your reach beyond your existing audience.
After a week, you should start seeing results of your traffic investment. Using the amount of purchases made by the new traffic you get, you can calculate your profits, subtracting any costs you incurred. It’s a good idea to monitor traffic and purchases to get an idea of your weekly profits. This will help you determine whether or not buying traffic was and will continue to be worth it. After a month, revisit the numbers and decide on your next course of action.

While Twitter has been cracking down on spam automation, you can still take advantage of this traffic source. If you’re still just learning how to increase website traffic, Twitter is a great platform for experimenting. You won’t need to worry about limited reach. With the help of relevant hashtags, you could reach an audience bigger than your follower count. When it comes to content marketing, a little trick I do to get traffic from Twitter is to share a click to retweet link with people featured in the article. This allows your original tweet to get more visibility, especially if a hashtag is used in it, because it can help you rank higher on the feed for the hashtag used. As a result, more eyes end up on the tweet and you’ll get a higher click through to your website.
Hi Brian! I enjoy reading your posts and use as much info as I possibly can. I build and sell storage sheds and cabins. The problem I have is that there are no top bloggers in my market or wikipedia articles with deadlinks that have to do with my market. 95% of my traffic and sales are generated via Facebook paid advertising. Would love to get more organic traffic and would be interested in your thoughts concerning this.
Your content is the main signal that Google uses to determine which country you are targeting. If you are targeting multiple countries with your generic domain name extension (.com, .org), add the country’s name in your posts’ meta titles and descriptions. This will not only make your content more keyword-targeted, but it will also give a clear signal that you are targeting a specific country.
This information hits the mark. “If you want your content to go viral, write content that influencers in your niche will want to share.” I love the information about share triggers too. I’m wondering, though, if you could share your insights on how influencers manage to build such vast followings. At some point, they had to start without the support of other influencers. It would seem that they found a way to take their passion directly to a “ready” world. Excellent insights. Thanks for sharing.

I love your post. I keep coming back because you always have great content I can use in my business as well as share. Since I own my own Digital Marketing company I guess you would be one of THE influencers in Internet Marketing field. I just started my business and because most influencers on twitter are talking about Content Marketing, that is what I have been writing about. But my site is only about a month old so I will just stay consistent in my writing. I’m also in the process of changing my navigation bar so be know how to get to what they want faster. Which would be “what is SEO”, etc. Thanks and would love any advice you can give me.

Write articles rich in content. Quality articles will get ranked better in search results. Make sure that your articles address the needs of your readers, and that they can find all of the information they need in one spot. This is the most effective means for increasing traffic to a website; offering people something that they cannot obtain elsewhere, or at least, not to the level of quality that you are offering it.[1]
Hi, my name is Dimitrios and I am responsible for Crave Culinaire’s digital marketing. I would like to drive more traffic to Crave’s blog. Since Crave Culinaire is the only catering company who provides molecular cuisine, I thought about craving a blog post about that. The influencers in this niche have great success in utilizing recipes on their blogs. I will share some recipes of Brian Roland, owner and head chef of Crave Culinaire.

Awesome tips Brian. Always enjoy your posts. My question is, how can I boost traffic significantly if my keyword has pretty low search volume (around 100 monthly searches based on keyword planner)? I’ve been trying to expand my keyword list to include broader terms like “customer experience” but as you know that is super competitive. Do you have any suggestions for me? Thanks in advance.
Brian, I’ve drunk your Kool aid! Thank you for honesty and transparency – it really gives me hope. Quick question: I am beyond passionate about a niche (UFOs, extraterrestrials, free energy) and know in my bones that an authority site is a long term opportunity. The problem today is that not many products are attached to this niche and so it becomes a subscriber / info product play. However, after 25+ years as an entrepreneur with a financial background and marketing MBA, am I Internet naive to believe that my passion and creativity will win profitability in the end? The target audience is highly passionate too. Feedback?

I feel I have great content…but most of it is within my email marketing campaign instead of my blogs. I’ve used my blogs to include links to my email marketing campaigns to lead to my product. In your opinion, should my blog content be the priority? I find my marketing emails sound more like a blog than just a “tip” or a reason to grab people to my list.
A Blog: If you are using blog and you are relying on Adsense, then you can buy traffic. I suggest it only if you are in a very bad state/ initialization phase of blog. Do not go for a huge number of traffic for the first time, increase the number of visitors in time (to avoid suspicion from search engines). You must also consider re-targeting these readers. But remember you can’t afford to buy traffic all the time, one of these days Google is going to find you, so alongside adopt SEO, content marketing practices also. In order o buy traffic, I would suggest fiverr. look for reputed seller/ reviews. Adopt practices suggested here.
In other words, actively developing your own media allows you to be in much better control of what results come up in the search results pages and for which keywords. When flawlessly implemented, this concept allows you to dominate entire search results pages, thus harvesting most of the search traffic for the chosen search terms, leaving nothing to your competition.
Okay, this may not exactly be new, but it certainly is more important for your company's SEO than ever before. Google has made it clear they are now taking user experience on websites into stronger consideration in terms of how your website ranks on their search engine. Because of this, measurements like average length of website visit, bounce rate, whether or not your site is mobile-friendly, click-through rates on your content and more will be more critical to SEO success than ever before. 
Historical refreshes of content is a good thing, especially if some of your content has expired. Note, this does not mean re-doing your content; simply refreshing it to bring it current if it isn't already evergreen content. Look at ways you can update outdated content on your site to drive more traffic through visibility on search engines like Google.
If you want to ensure that the traffic you are driving with your AdWords is almost ready to buy what you’re selling, then your ads should be as straightforward as possible. Including the price, shipping fees or discounts in your search ad copy can go a long way to ensure people who do click through are those potential shoppers who are willing to pay your prices, and ultimately more ready to make a buying decision then and there.

With Google Ads, the focus is on getting users to your website, but that's only half the battle: Google Analytics fills the gap by providing insight into what users do once they arrive. When using both together, you can track things like which ads lead to the most clicks and conversions, so you can optimize your campaigns to focus on your best-performing ads.
There are several web traffic referral sources. Organic traffic comes from search engines. Referral traffic comes from other websites. Display traffic comes from ads for your business on other sites. Paid traffic comes from promotions via sites like AdWords. Social traffic comes from social media sites. Each type of traffic can be further divided into individual traffic sources. For example, organic traffic can come from Google, Bing, or other search engines. And social traffic can come from a variety of sites.
