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:)
As you’ll notice, the most popular parts of these hotspots are bright yellow or orange. If the nav bar links or search field are blue (a much cooler, more subdued color), then there’s something about your site people are not finding useful, or they don’t trust. If embedded links in content are blue, that means visitor aren’t clicked. Why? It could be that visitors are getting the information they want right away and then leaving.
Some people will tell you that guest blogging is no longer effective, but with a strategic approach, guest blogging can still be one of the best ways to generate website traffic. The most important thing is to blog on sites that are relevant to your audience so that you generate high-quality traffic. Offer a lead magnet to entice new visitors over to your website, and return the favor by asking other writers to guest post on your site too, then share that content on social media. Don’t limit yourself to written posts either -- podcasts, Instagram takeovers and YouTube guest appearances are all highly effective in 2018 and beyond.

Go to local events or Meetup events and connect with bloggers in your industry. An example of an event I run to connect with bloggers and people in the online marketing word is: http://www.meetup.com/Online-Marketing-Sydney/. Make friends first and then try to gain guest posts later. I am not really a fan of websites which are flooded with guest posts one after another; it is the type of thing which Google is just waiting to target.
One rule you can always follow in regards to making sites and driving traffic to them is - CONTENT IS KING. There will be nothing else in this world that will drive traffic as much as good content does. Nothing will attract more customers and visitors. Doesn’t matter what your niche is - as long as your content is good, you will see an audience that will grow exponentially.
For our client: We only used a smaller quantity of very high-quality link building each month. So, for example we only built 40 of the best links each month to supplement the work we were doing on the content marketing front. We also invested heavily into tracking competitor backlink profiles, using Majestic SEO and Open Site Explorer. We worked out how the competitor's acquired specific backlinks, then by using outreach and content creation we obtained these links.
Good question, for most directories I use they ask for mobile number to send a message of verification, for the ones which phone you for verification inform the company before hand to tell their customer service people to be ready. I know the bigger the company the more tricky these things get you just have to find out what works best to answer the calls even if they give you a direct number to use. 
Organic traffic is driven from search engines. Search engines like: Google, Yahoo & Bing. Billions of users around the world use these search engines to find sites like yours every single day. After an order is placed on our site, we evaluate your website to ensure that the keywords that you have chosen are relevant and keyword enriched. Then, our team of highly trained SEO and marketing professionals will process your order & your traffic will be on the way!

Remember: It can take up to seven points of contact to make a single sale, so you'll want to begin collecting visitors' contact information from day one using an opt-in form on your home page. Then send them e-mail messages to follow up and keep them thinking about your site. Need some ideas for e-mails you could send to follow up with your opt-in subscribers? Try these ideas:

Finally, there are the supplementary products, support, and services available that can make getting visitors for your site a lot easier, making for a more automotive approach. Paid traffic is a good one, though, you do have to make sure that the source is reliable based on reviews of other customers. Treat it like food, where quality is everything. Visitors counters and analytics are useful too, as long as their quality customer support.
The great advantage of web trackers are that they are better at tracking 'real people' as they track browsers NOT server requests. This often means a web tracker will have a significantly lower count than standard log file analysis. But it offers a more realistic figure of the visitors to your website and far more detail. At StatCounter our web tracker is provided in real-time so it's even better still.

I’ve always been one to create great content, but now I see it may not necessarily be the right content. Can Share Triggers work for all niches including things like plumbing companies, computer repair, maybe even handy men that have a website for their business? I would say I’m estimating half the views a month as I should. Hopefully some of these strategies will help.
Some images taken from Analytics that show what happens to the visits of your site, and it is not hits or whatever sessions, but visits from a specific searched keyword from Google: our system searches the keys you selected, for example ” kitchens components ” in Google and then the SERP (Search Engine Result Page) select your site and hits a session/visit.
The transaction stage involves providing specific incentives for visitors to buy right now. It involves “harvesting the seeds” that you planted during the awareness and comparison stages. The transaction stage is where you get down to business and ask for the sale, describing a specific product or service and providing an incentive to act right now. 
Hi Ramsay, great post as always. I have a question on ranking. Does my individual blog post get ranked? Or does my blog website get ranked? By blogging regularly, does it help my blog website ranking? I guess what this equates to is do I spend a lot of time on individual post to rank the blog post high… or blog often and regularly (daily?) so that my blog website ranks high. thanks!

Wow Brian, You have solved my problem. A few days back I was looking for ways to increase traffic on my tech blog, I found this blog post by you while I was looking out for possible tricks to increase traffic. I must say that few of the tricks mentioned above really worked for me. For example, I updated a few old posts on my blog, I did try the broken link building technique and the last I did was to repost my content on Medium.
What products or services are disposable or will expire if they are not sold? Examples of disposable products and services include tickets for whale watch cruises that become useless the moment the ship leaves the dock and winter jackets that become increasingly difficult to sell as summer approaches. Disposable products make ideal premium content coupon incentives.
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.

Great article. My site has been up for several years now but I rebranded and switched from Blogger to WordPress about a year ago because I was told the reason why my traffic is so low is because I was using the wrong platform. I still haven’t seen an increase in my traffic and am very frustrated. I write in the health, fitness and parenting niche and I have over 30 experts that write for me, but I still don’t have the page views I would like. My paychecks are small and I am very frustrated. How do I find out what influencers in my niche are talking about and what they would like to share? I read tons of blogs, but most of them just review products or write about their kids, not a whole lot of similar articles. Where do I begin to find sharable content in my niche?
However, the preference is always given to advertisers using the different content of ads and showing them so that profits only grow, and this process takes a lot of time every day. With such competition, the slightest mistake or delay can play a cruel joke and cost a lot of money. That's why you should take a closer look at the SSP - Supply-Side Platform.

By addressing these issues on your website, you should be see major gains in your website's performance. But these aren’t the only factors that can affect your ability to convert visitors into customers. If you have another tip on an issue you discovered that was causing visitors to leave your site without buying, leave a note describing both the challenge you faced and how you resolved it in the comments section below.


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.
Of course it’s very difficult to read people’s intentions just by looking at numbers. The only real way we can try to find their intent is by looking at what they searched for to get to us (hurry before the number of logged in Google users increases!). Create a report of Organic Search Traffic ordered by Ecommerce conversion rate to see what terms are the most valuable. You’ll usually see some good long tail keywords you never would have considered. I would also sort by 0% conversions to see the keywords you may be wasting your time with. Remember to normalize these results by filtering to see keywords with at least 10 visits or so.

So there is the Traffic Booster, which I have been using for about 1,5 years now with three of my shops and its a pretty cool app. You can basically choose pretty specifically what kind of traffic you want (age, gender, location etc.) and its a scale-able app so I think I started out back then paying something like 30$ and I decided to increase my investment over time because I kept getting a pretty constant stream of very good traffic.


I started a movie blog last October http://thefilmbox.org/ and have been working ever since to grow the site as a way of generating a secondary income for my family. I knew the road would be long and hard but had no idea how frustrated I’d get blogging. Some days are awful, nobody it seems visits or likes what you’re doing. Others are great. Yesterday for example I broke my record for views in a day, currently 18,902 off of 17,728 visitors from a reddit post that took off. But today my traffic is back to a trickle. My daily average views are about 400-500. Sometimes more, but hardly less.
The New York Times reported about Cameron Harris, a political science graduate, who was able to make a profitable business by purchasing an expired domain. His idea was called 'A Fake News Masterpiece' by the paper. After finishing his studies, the 23-year-old was looking for a lucrative business model and came up with the idea of carrying out a 'sociological experiment', in his words.
