incredible post and just what i needed! i’m actually kinda new to blogging (my first year coming around) and so far my expertise has been in copy writing/seo copy writing. however link building has become tedious for me. your talk about influencing influencers makes perfect sense, but i find it difficult for my niche. my blog site is made as “gift ideas” and holiday shoppers complete with social networks. i get shares and such from my target audience, but i find that my “influencers” (i.e etsy, red box, vat19, etc.) don’t allow dofollow links and usually can’t find suitable sources. I guess my trouble is just prospecting in general.


#6 Go on podcasts! In 13 years of SEO and digital marketing, I’ve never had as much bang for the buck. You go on for 20 minutes, get access to a new audience and great natural links on high dwell time sites (hosts do all the work!). Thanks for including this tip Brian, I still don’t think the SEO community has caught on to the benefits of podcast guesting campaigns for SEO and more…it’s changed my business for sure.
StatCounter.com can produce far different results to standard log file analysis. This is not surprising as our system is designed to track browsers NOT server requests. This can result in 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 and it is provided in real-time!
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.
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.
For example, if your accounting software allows non-paying users to send a maximum of ten invoices a month, and a customer has already sent their tenth invoice and it’s nowhere near the end of their free trial yet, you can reach out and encourage them to upgrade their plan so they can send their eleventh invoice and so on. I know it’s bare bones, but I’m sure you get the point.

Avoid purchasing organic traffic and instead generate organic traffic by providing meaningful content and perspectives to your prospects. The marketing industry continues to evolve as services that offer real organic traffic have begun to rise.

In this article, we determine why organizations are purchasing organic traffic, the types of organic traffic, and whether the acquisition of organic traffic is worthwhile.


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.

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!
This is an obligatory stage, during which the subscriber is immediately sent to the email address a special letter with options for how he can confirm the subscription started and end the subscription process. The options for the actual confirmation can be: a link, an email address or a password to confirm the subscription. An unconfirmed subscription is invalid.

Aside from that, It seems like I’m doing much of what you listed in this blog post (*usually* great content, specific niche (I’m an Iranian fashion + social action blogger, so like ethical fashion…from an Iranian’s point of view haha) and have tried and tested so many SEO tactics but it still doesn’t seem to be helping grow my audience. I know that a lot of the visitors I’m gettting are converting into loyal readers, so I don’t think there is much issue with my level of content, but my blog seems to be hidden by search engines & I’m not sure why?


Quality First It is easy to buy website traffic on the internet. It can be challenging though to find a reputable traffic provider. For a website owner incoming visitor’s quality must be number one priority. Bad quality untargeted traffic brings low conversion rate. Boot visitors (fake traffic) brings absolute zero conversion rate. VisitorMaker.Com delivers only

I really enjoyed your post, im building my own business from the ground up making custom furniture, lighting, and home decor. it took me a year to launch my website and now im trying to invite more traffic and ways for clients and interested parties to share my content and start buying my product. I liked the idea of Share triggers… im going to be incorporating that into my social media strategies. Any advice would go a long way. thanks again Brian

The terms 'expired domains' and 'dropped domains' are very common in online marketing. These are website addresses that have been registered, but then not extended or terminated after the contractual period ended. The domain is then re-released for registration. In most cases, website operators secure their domains for longer than the minimum period of a year by remaining registered with a hosting provider for a longer time.
