Whether you’re building a brand or selling a product, the success of your site relies on the number of visitors you get and the quality of those interactions. An obvious example is an online store, where more traffic often means more sales. But traffic is also important if you have a blog, where reaching more people can help you inspire and impact more lives. Also, with more visitors, you can create opportunities for sponsorships and ad revenue. No matter what kind of site you have, bringing more traffic to your online doorstep is the way to grow and thrive online.

Loved this article. I was in stuck mode. Am relatively new to blogging. Started online business and website about 3 months ago. Am learning a lot, but had an ah ha moment about traffic – targeted traffic and found this article. Thanks for the great tips. I hope to implement all of them, and realize how much more there is to each one of the steps you outline. Great stuff!

The quality of a blog’s content generally has to be excellent in order to attract or increase the number of visitors, but the matter of actually classifying content as excellent can be a bit confusing. As such, it’s best to stick with the general rules. One is to check for grammatical or spelling mistakes. Two is to keep your choice of words very simple where possible. Three is to structure them in such a way as to make them eligible for visitors.
Yes the article was highly informative it\’s very very useful to the newbies like me in the field of digital marketing, It shows instead of creating some website / blog waiting with hope for the traffic to come instead put more logical steps. Promoting at the different sources where usually traffic can be build for the websites excellent insight hope we can use to the fullest extent with your further guidance & support of-course.
Website speed is a big factor that's related to relevancy. Your site is far more relevant if it loads quickly. To that end, find a good content-delivery network (CDN) you can incorporate such as Amazon's CloudFront or other services. CDNs help to spread your content across servers all over the world and serve them to the nearest visitor. Also, reduce and optimize images and use a service like Oleg Schegolev's SEMRush to help identify performance issues with your site's speed.

Excellent post Brian. I think the point about writing content that appeals to influencers in spot on. Could you recommend some good, manual strategies through which I can spot influencers in boring niches *B2B* where influencers are not really talking much online? Is it a good idea to rely on newspaper articles to a feel for what a particular industry is talking about? Would love to hear your thoughts on that.
“In conclusion, this research illuminates how content characteristics shape whether it becomes viral. When attempting to generate word of mouth, marketers often try targeting “influentials,” or opinion leaders (i.e., some small set of special people who, whether through having more social ties or being more persuasive, theoretically have more influence than others). Although this approach is pervasive,recent research has cast doubt on its value (Bakshy et al. 2011; Watts 2007) and suggests that it is far from cost effective. Rather than targeting “special” people, the current research suggests that it may be more beneficial to focus on crafting contagious content. By considering how psychological processes shape social transmission, it is possible to gain deeper insight into collective outcomes, such as what becomes viral.”
5. Advocacy – This phase of the marketing funnel only became apparent since the last 5 years or so. Advocacy means that your customers love you so much, they talk about you to others without you asking them. Customers who have experienced your brand in a positive manner will want to follow you on their preferred social platform. More than that, they’ll help amplify your content by sharing it – because they’re madly in love with you

Whatever industry you’re in, chances are there are at least one or two major conventions and conferences that are relevant to your business. Attending these events is a good idea – speaking at them is even better. Even a halfway decent speaking engagement is an excellent way to establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry and gain significant exposure for your site.
Reviews of bought traffic sellers are all over the place, including the ones you’ll find on this site. Before you buy traffic to your site, it’s always a good idea to check what others who have already done the same thing think about the seller. It’s also important to not pay too much attention on things like star ratings. Instead, really look at the praises and complaints, and try to see if they have any merit.
Organic search engine optimization (SEO) can drive plenty of traffic to your website if done well. SEO is a combination of on-page and off-page factors that helps the popular search engines match user inquiries with web content. The resulting links are served on what’s known as search engine results pages (SERPs). If your site comes up on the first page, especially among the top three links displayed by the search engine, chances are very good that people will click the link and visit your website.

We purchased advertisement inclusion in two well-known opt-in / subscription newsletters. Both inserts were in the price range of $750 – $1000. For both campaigns we provided a banner ad with text for inclusion in a newsletter published on the internet and sent out to various email lists, made up of 25,000 to 500,000 opt-in subscribers. We were told to expect anywhere from 300 to 3000 click-throughs. From that number, 10% of the visitors might take out a free Opentracker trial, and of those trials in turn, a percentage of people would purchase website statistics subscriptions. We created separate landing pages for each mailing, so that we can very clearly see, by url, how many people landed on each page.
There are plenty of website design tools available right now that could easily help you create that website that would then attract traffic by the truckload. You want to have a site that’s optimized for maximum traffic attraction and conversion, which isn’t always possible for people who build their websites on their own. You simply have to have that kind of expertise on such matter or you could use a tool. It’s your choice.
People want to speak their minds and weigh in on subjects they feel passionately about, so building a community into your site is a great way to start a conversation and increase traffic to your website. Implement a robust commenting system through third-party solutions such as Facebook comments or Disqus, or create a dedicated forum where visitors can ask questions. Don’t forget to manage your community to ensure that minimum standards of decorum are met, however.
I have been trying to produce more content because I believed the lack of traffic was to the small amount of content, but after reading your blog post, i’m beginning to doubt wether or not this is quality content. I will definitely do more research on influencers on my niche, now I have to figure out how to get their attention with my kind of content.
Competitions or drawings. I’ve worked with companies to send out postcards inviting people that have shown interest in the business/industry to enter to win. We’ve brought them to a unique page for the contest, and after entering, ensured that we had a CTA in the Confirmation that pushed them to the main site. Resulted in a 30% bump in traffic during the contest period and a 5% bump over time.

Tripwire is a term originally introduced by Perry Belcher, co-founder of Digital Marketer and Native Commerce. It's a low front-end offer that's usually in the range of $7 to $37. They can even go as low as one dollar. The point? They help to bring people into your world and then ascend them up your value ladder. They are low friction front-end offers that introduce people to your business and it's usually a much easier sell than going straight to a higher ticket offer.
Once you make your purchase, it should boost traffic for websites you’ve linked to. This is the first step in determining whether or not your purchase was worth it. The first step is getting people to your site. Going from 50 or 60 hits a day to hundreds or thousands has huge potential for a business. Just as any marketing strategy would have attempted, the idea is to get people to notice your website and to be interested in the offers you have made.
It’s not enough to produce great content and hope that people find it – you have to be proactive. One of the best ways to increase traffic to your website is to use social media channels to promote your content. Twitter is ideal for short, snappy (and tempting) links, whereas Google+ promotion can help your site show up in personalized search results and seems especially effective in B2B niches. If you’re a B2C product company, you might find great traction with image-heavy social sites like Pinterest and Instagram. Here's more advice on making the most of social media marketing.

Once you have a website, your next step is to get the word out. There are lots of different ways to lead people to your site, but attracting and building an online audience goes beyond getting one-time visits — thriving websites have a following. Below, we’ll discuss why site traffic matters and introduce some of the basics on how to bring visitors to your website...and keep them coming back.

Influencer marketing is a way of building rapport with your desired audience on social media by partnering with someone who already speaks to that audience. Social media influencers work hard to build their audience and they generally need to keep it by sharing useful, informative, and timely content – exactly the kind of content they can get from you.
On the other hand, if you’re resourceful enough, you can compile some great keywords without paying for anything at all. You might have to deal with advertising in this category but that’s normal and worth it if you are targeting lots of visitors. Try to keep your mobile audience in mind when researching too as well as with your social media network marketing.

I’m a big advocate of quality. It’s so much more important than frequency. In my experience, one great piece a month will get much better results than a so-so post once a week. But if you don’t want to reduce your frequency, you could try creating a format or series of posts that are easier to create, like interviews. This can fill in the weeks in between while you write something with more impact. Mix it up! 🙂
In the early days of the web, site owners could rank high in search engines by adding lots of search terms to web pages, whether they were relevant to the website or not. Search engines caught on and, over time, have refined their algorithms to favor high-quality content and sites. This means that SEO is now more complex than just adding the right words to your copy.
Brian, I recently found your blog by following OKDork.com. Just want to say you’re really amazing with the content you put out here. It’s so helpful, especially for someone like me who is just starting out. I’m currently writing posts for a blog I plan to launch later this year. I think my niche is a little too broad and I have to figure out how to narrow it down. I essentially want to write about my current journey of overcoming my fears to start accomplishing the dreams i have for blogging, business, and travel. In doing so, I will share the best tips, tools, and tactics I can find, as well as what worked, what didn’t and why.
Once you’ve attracted your customers to your site, whether to a piece of content via social or a conversion page via SEO, they’ll often leave your site and come back a few times before they actually convert. Sometimes they’re doing research, sometimes they get distracted by other sites, and sometimes they’re just not ready to buy or give you the information you so badly need from them to drive your business forward.
For my Adsense plugin which you can get here https://wordpress.org/plugins/adsense-made-easy-best-simple-ad-inserter/ I’ve created a PRO version (https://www.seo101.net/adsense-made-easy-pro/) that is available to those that sign up for my mailing list. It’s not much but it gets me 5 to 6 subscibers a day. And best of all I know exactly what my subscribers are interested in… WordPress and Adsense:)
Next up is something that tends to remain hidden unless you know to look for it – site category exclusions. Site category exclusions are campaign-wide exclusions to prevent an ad from appearing on placements or websites that do not align with an advertiser’s message or tone. These are broad concepts ranging from gambling to sexually suggestive content, mature audience content, error pages, tragedy & conflict content, social networks, etc.

Guest blogging is a pretty straightforward way to grow traffic to any website. As long as you're guest blogging on a site that has considerable reach, it should generate some healthy traffic numbers for you. Even better? Ensure that the guest blog is topical or related to the industry that you're in. You might find a hard time convincing popular blogs and bloggers to guest blog on their site, but it's well worth it when just one of them agrees.

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.
High quality, permanent, targeted free traffic is the best type of traffic you could get. It’s hands free and pure ROI. So I highly recommend that anyone reading who needs traffic look into it. Some good high quality, permanent, targeted, free traffic sources you could use are number one, BaLooZo ( http://baloozo.com/get-instant-autopilot-targeted-website-traffic.html ), an ad site where you could post a permanent ad and push it to the top of the search results for your keywords and your category’s page 10 times a day, and there are advanced ad statistics. There are also feature PPC ads that go on top of the free ads that you could bid on for the first position, with a $0.001 load minimum and a $0.001 click minimum, in case you want to eventually pay for traffic, as well. You just sign up, post a permanent free ad and you’re getting permanent, free traffic forever.

To use audience targeting, an advertiser must first build audiences in either AdWords or Google Analytics. The audiences will be made up of users (or a subset of users) that have visited the website. Your audience(s) comprised of users that have visited your website are termed ‘remarketing’ audiences. Here is a great blog by Michael B. on the ins and outs of building, segmenting and targeting your remarketing audiences.
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.

Hey andy thanks for sharing your knowledge with us,the factors you said are all helpful to get targeted web site traffic but the fresh and great piece of content always gives you the better position is SERP’s. So one should make content useful and new. As content is king but links are queens. So don’t forget to have some high quality links. By the way thanks
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.

This keyword will show up for visits generated by ads that are not related to a user search, but which appear on Google’s Display Network. These are the ads which you will often see when visiting other websites, on your mobile phone, or in online videos. They are associated with the Google AdWords account that owns the campaign, but do not rely on any specific user search.


The best way to see a return on your traffic investment is in the form of profits. When people who have clicked to your site go from visitors to customers, they are called conversions. You will want to look for websites that have both high click-through rates and a high amount of conversions before you place your ad. When purchasing actual visitors directly through a traffic company, you will want to take a look at their conversion numbers as well.

I would like to thank Ross for this AMAZING post. There are too many internet marketers out there struggling to get traffic. How many people out there with mind-blowing websites that the world NEEDS that will never get enough traffic to get their ideas out to the public? How many people stuck at 9 to 5’s struggling to make money online only because they just CAN’T GET TRAFFIC? This is an extremely thoughtful post. The world needs more people who would create an article like this that could help the struggling moms out there trying to make money online.

Sites like Outbrain and Taboola are great for promoting your website or blog as long as you have some sales funnel setup and an ability to track those individuals who arrive from these platforms. These sites will promote your content across thousands of other similar websites across the internet for a fee. However, be sure to do your due diligence and test things out before diving in headfirst.
Email marketing is still a highly effective channel for driving traffic to your website. However, it’s definitely evolved since the times of promotional blasts. Building a sequence that nurtures new sign-ups and develops a relationship is now an essential part of email marketing. In fact, even the basic welcome email is better than an old-school transactional one. According to a recent study, 320% more revenue is attributed to welcome emails than other promotional emails, so it definitely pays to have some kind of autoresponder series in place.
On the other hand, if you’re resourceful enough, you can compile some great keywords without paying for anything at all. You might have to deal with advertising in this category but that’s normal and worth it if you are targeting lots of visitors. Try to keep your mobile audience in mind when researching too as well as with your social media network marketing.

Hi Brian! Very good and exactly what I was looking for. I have a problem though, we are creating the first video editing software that edits video WHILE FILMING. We are video geeks with a lot of experience, however we are trying to appeal to GoPro users and video tutorial makers but we have little knowledge in that field. Any suggestions on how we write about that if we have no idea about the space?

One of the simplest things to do that most people don’t actually do is send consistent email marketing to their customers who have given their email address. Whether this is a weekly newsletter or a daily piece of content to teach and sell, this is the best way to keep your users engaged. The best part is that once you set it up once, your customers will all see that same content.
Finally, there’s the source of the traffic you will get to consider. It’s undeniable that some sellers do resort to bots, but they are getting easier to identify by the day. Most legitimate traffic sellers will allow customers to choose where their traffic is coming from based on geography and quality. To buy traffic that converts, you’ll need to keep this in mind.
