Stickers are essentially mini-posters, and advertisers have been using them for decades to get the word out without technically breaking the law. They hand them out to teams who then go out and plaster them over public buildings, bus stops and street signs. When the authorities complain, they say “oh, we only gave them to our customers. We have no control over where they put them.”
You select the geographical location where you want your visitors to come from and also the most relevant target audience for you. For example, if your website is about movies and you want U.K visitors, You set your traffic online location to the United Kingdom and your niche to movies. for some niches, you can refine your selection even further, like movies, movies- DVD, Blu- ray or movies– streaming. Let’s say you want around 1600 visitors per day for one month, then you can buy 50k visitors for a time span of 30 days. We’ll share it equally, around 1667 visitors per day.
Simply put, Google Quality Score is how Google rates the relevancy of your ads. This score is worked out based on CTR, ad and keyword relevance, landing page quality and account performance. In other words, if you are misleading customers in your ads, and they click through to find the landing page they are being sent to is not what they thought they would be getting, then your quality score will decrease. The lower your quality score is, the bigger the chance Google will put a competitor’s bids before your own.
No matter who you are or what your business does, increasing traffic to your website is something we can never get enough of as entrepreneurs. Whether you would like to increase the number of readers for a certain blog post, the number of subscribers to your email newsletter, or something else entirely, you'll need traffic to those pages to jump-start the process.
As a newbie, it can be difficult to compete against popular keywords, as leaders of your field must have already worked on them. It is really more qualitative to write a lot of articles on a very specific segment than trying to position yourself on very common ones. It will bring you qualitative prospects and will place you as an expert on a specific domain. Moreover, developing long-tail keywords often convert better. You can use KeywordTool to choose the best keywords.
You have also mentioned Quuu for article sharing and driving traffic. I have been using Quuu for quite sometime now and I don’t think they’re worth it. While the content does get shared a lot, there are hardly any clicks to the site. Even the clicks that are there, average time is like 0.02 seconds compared to more than 2 minutes for other sources of traffic on my website. I have heard a few guys having a similar experience with Quuu and so, I thought should let you know.
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.
Display traffic is traffic to your site from ads or banners on other sites. For example, you might pay for placement of a banner on a related site, or run an affiliate program where the ads link back to your site. Display traffic contrasts with organic traffic, which comes from search engines, and paid traffic, which comes from programs like AdWords. If you want to attract display traffic, consider hiring a graphic design expert to create attractive, click-worthy banners.
While short-tail keywords are often searched more frequently, it is more difficult to rank for them on search engines. Targeting long-tail keywords, on the other hand, gives you a better chance of ranking higher (even on the first page) for queries specific to your products and services—and higher ranking means more traffic. Plus, as search engines and voice-to-text capabilities advance, people are using more specific phrases to search online.
If your campaign spans several days, experiment by changing the landing page, and comparing results. On the right, please see the places that people clicked, in order of popularity. At one point we noticed that the average pageviews were very low, meaning that nobody was reaching our target page (the sign-up page). We changed the landing page and directed the visitors directly to the ‘create a free trial’ page. This led to an even further drop in the average number of pages viewed. People did not respond well to being landed directly on a sign-up page. There is a lot of literature on this subject. The challenge is to offer a well-built page which is to the point, invites exploration, and leads visitors to complete a desired action. In this case a text-link produced the best results (see diagram).
Great article, learned a lot from it! But I still really get it with the share trigger and right content. For instance, the influencers now care a lot about the new Koenigsegg Agera RS >> https://koenigsegg.com/blog/ (Car). I thought about an article like “10 things you need to know about the Koenigsegg Agera RS”. The only problem is that I don’t know which keywords I should use and how i can put in share triggers.
You probably visit at least a few sites that are relevant to your business on a regular basis, so why not join the conversation? Commenting doesn’t necessarily provide an immediate boost to referral traffic right away, but making a name for yourself by providing insightful, thought-provoking comments on industry blogs and sites is a great way to get your name out there – which can subsequently result in driving more traffic to your own site. Just remember that, as with guest posting, quality and relevance are key – you should be engaging with other people in your niche, not dropping spam links on unrelated websites.
Brian, great post as always! Question: Do you consider authority sites (industry portals) a form of “influencer marketing?” e.g. guest blogging, etc? In some niches there are not so many individuals who are influencers (outside of journalists) but there are sites that those in the industry respect. I am in the digital video space and for me one site is actually a magazine that is building a very strong digital presence. Thanks, keep up the good work!
Let’s say you have a social media representative who’s out there sharing your content and talking to people about your brand. The rep has a major advantage over your brand Page, because he or she can “friend” people and message them right off the bat. On the other hand, Facebook has made contacting your Page or Group followers an increasingly intricate dance.
Guesting is one of my favorite forms of increasing website traffic. You guest on other types of content such as podcasts, videos, articles, etc. You provide content usually that’s entertaining or educational and in return you get access to a new audience. Think of an actor that goes on late night talk shows to promote a new movie. It can increase short-term traffic, but also long-term traffic.
Yep and sometimes it’s just being a little creative. I’ve started a little blog on seo/wordpress just for fun actually… no great content on it like here though… but because the competition is so tough in these niches I decided to take another approach. I created a few WordPress plugins that users can download for free from wordpress.org… and of course these link to my site so this gets me visitors each day.
Hey Brian I must say it’s a awesome content you are sharing .my question to you is how did you transform from a nutrition expert to a Seo master I mean both subjects are poles apart so how did you learn SEO can you share your story because I find my self in similar situation I am an engineer by profession and I am starting a ecommerce business niche is Apparel no experience of watspever in Blog writing and SEO if you can throw some resources where I can improve my skills that would be a huge help

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. Begin with outreach to sites that have written roundups of alternatives for your competitors and see if they’d like to include your site. Bonus points for getting them to add you at the top.
This way, when you do drive traffic, you know where that traffic is coming from. Otherwise, you're left in the dark. For example, if you do some content marketing on Quora.com or Medium.com, you could use the campaign source as simply Quora or Medium and the campaign medium as content_marketing and the term as the term you're working to rank for. Get the picture? Then, you'll see all the beautiful results directly in Google Analytics and you'll know specifically where your traffic came from.
“To give you an example, our domain authority is currently a mediocre 41 due to not putting a lot of emphasis on it in the past. For that reason, we want to (almost) automatically scratch off any keyword with a difficulty higher than 70%—we just can’t rank today. Even the 60% range as a starting point is gutsy, but it’s achievable if the content is good enough.”
Start browsing through articles in the same category as your content. Like the articles you genuinely like, and downvote the ones you’re not interested in. Do this for a few minutes every day.This step is very important – StumbleUpon uses the data to learn what kind of content you like. When you submit content, StumbleUpon will show it to other users who like the same kind of content.Act like your ideal reader, and that’s who StumbleUpon will share your content with.
When you’re just starting out, you’ll need to focus on finding keywords that represent your niche to base your blog content and store pages on. Typically, you’ll choose to focus on one or two main keywords per webpage. You can use SEO tools like Keywords Everywhere to help you find relevant keywords. In the beginning, focus on keywords that have the search volume of under 10,000 searches a month. After a few months of creating blog content and optimizing product pages, you can then focus on going after higher volume keywords. The trick to getting website traffic is to build a strong foundation of relevant keywords first. Be sure to take advantage of the blog on your online store as it can have the biggest impact on driving organic traffic to your website.
Optimizing a website to increase visitors requires the right keywords and the only way to actually get them is to do research. Now, while there are several ways that you can do this, the general methods can be broken down into paid and free. Paid keyword research tools are usually very powerful and can provide customers with a lot of great options to choose from, which leads to more regular visitors.
Do not be fooled by those traffic sellers promising thousands of hits an hour. What they really do is load up your URL in a program, along with a list of proxies. Then they run the program for a few hours. It looks like someone is on your site because your logs show visitors from thousands of different IPs. What happens in reality is your website is just pinged by the proxy, no one really sees your site. It is a waste of money.
Growing your messenger subscriber list and driving them to pages on your website is one of the most effective ways to get more traffic. These messages get a 90%+ open rate and a 50%+ click-through rate which almost guarantees they will see your next blog post or resource you created. Messaging apps are surpassing social networks and are not going anywhere anytime soon. I recommend you get started soon because these amazing engagement rates will not last long.
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.
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.
In addition to the various website- and user-based targeting methods, we can also layer on demographic targets for a user’s gender, age range, and parental status. Advertisers can either exclude or create custom bid adjustments for users based off these demographics. The implications for certain advertisers with a strong homogenous key demographic are clear. If your industry leans heavily on one gender, age range, or parental status (say, women’s clothing, retirement services, or baby care), demographic targeting may be a powerful tool for you to leverage.
One way to quickly increase your traffic is to go on a site like Wikipedia and search for broken links. Then, replace those broken links with quality content by first researching the old content using the Wayback Machine. Then, replace it with similar, high-quality content and contact the editor of the page to offer up yours as a replacement. It's not guaranteed, but when it works, it's powerful.
Yes and no. A long time ago, Google stopped showing search term keywords in Google Analytics for its logged in users. You can read about it online. Most of your traffic may be from logged in Google users so it will hide their keywords searched and show up as "not provided". Rest assured, we are sending the traffic that is using your keywords and the service will work the same way regardless.
Our targeted traffic services are world class and we are a step above our competitors. We have done a detailed review of our competition and what we found is that nearly all other companies offering "targeted seo website traffic" are not actually following through on that promise. They either attempt to use bots to deliver traffic or simply cannot handle the volume or quality our customers expect.
