I find it interesting that you talked about nutrition supplements for athletes. I am very close to launching such a product for enhancing aerobic exercise performance in women (ie. improved times in a 3 mile run).. The product contains no stimulants or exotic herbs. In fact three of the five ingredients are well known minerals, but in forms not found in most multi-vitamin-mineral supplements. The research behind the product comes from me. The credibility behind the research is that I am a professor of human nutrition with over 100 research papers. Now, the trick will be to use my connections and credibility in a business savvy way.
Remember all those visitors hitting the “Back” button I mentioned earlier? There's hope for regaining their attention using exit intent technology programs. These are tools that track visitor mouse movement. If it appears the visitor is about to bounce, that visitor will be presents with a message or offer in a last-ditch effort to help them stay on the page.
The secret is that there is no easy way to buy traffic. It is difficult to arrange for people to come to your website, click around, and buy something. I would recommend you to pay attention to three central theses of purchasing traffic. 1) PPC campaigns are a definite must 2) paid inclusion in newsletters, ads, and banners, can be successful if well-placed and well-designed 3) bulk targeted traffic is a scam. Note: industry information on lead generation is somewhat guarded. Lead generation and the purchase of traffic is a complicated business, with networks and affiliate groups.
Firstly, Yoast has written a really comprehensive guide on how to get yourself properly setup. Secondly, it’s not the kind of thing you need to get totally correct before you do anything else – you can tweak as you go. I would earmark half a day of your time to add the plugin and go through the above article making changes and then just leave it for a while.
Another great use for tools that can help you boost your traffic numbers is for marketing. You can basically automate your social media efforts through various amazing tools that are available both for free and paid. Both have their pros and cons, but the important thing to remember is that you have options with regards to this particular aspect. If you don’t want to micromanage your marketing efforts, why not simply outsource that to a robot?
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.
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.
The traffic it`s self can not damage the website, nor the website`s page ranks; as a mater of fact it can improve page rank of the site. But, it may damage your web-server if not properly configured, or it`s resources are not adequate; slowing it down, due to the amount of traffic it has to handle; or even in extreme cases, even shutting it down for god.

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.
First of all, there are many different ways to bring traffic to your website. You may invest in an actual visitor package which will give you so many unique visitors for one price. On the other hand, you may decide to put up ads on other websites and in search engines. In this case, you will likely pay-per-click. Another way to direct traffic to your site is through sponsored searches. These are the search results that pop up at the top of a search and are usually highlighted because they paid for those spots.
This cast are the reason your overall visits mean nothing. These people represent the 98% of people you get daily but are not converting. I could give you a million hits today, but if they are the people in this group, you’ll see $0 out of it. The key to improving conversions is first getting a handle on what type of visitors are likely to convert in the first place, and then optimizing your site to convert those that are not converting now for some reason (some of the above have the potential, but your website has deficiencies that prevent them from doing so).
Mr. Shotgun – This guy isn’t great at searching, just average. If he wants to buy a new 2012 Audi A6 with leather, his query is probably just “audi”. Then he clicks on the first search result he gets without reading, hits back, clicks the next one, hits back, until he finds something that kind of meets his expectations. These are the people that end up on page 5 of Google result and kill your bounce rate if you don’t have a clear message.
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!
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.
Once you decide which kind of traffic you want to buy, it’s time to compare some prices. Of course, you may decide to go with a combination of traffic directing deals. This means, in order to calculate the cost, you’ll need to add up all of them together. When it comes to pay-per-click, prices can vary greatly. It all depends on where your ad or link is placed. For example, an ad on a high traffic website with great click-through rates is going to cost you a lot more than one on a smaller site. Also, when you pay for those top sponsored search spots, you do tend to pay a high price.
If well-ranked sites suddenly disappear from the search machine index, it can be for a number of different reasons: In one case, the crawler could no longer check the pages in question, or in another case it could have identified duplicate content and removed one of the pages from the search results. Another reason, often unknown to the external developer, is so-called URL hijacking – a process in...

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?
What makes an expired domain especially attractive is how beneficial it is for a website’s off-page search optimization. In the ideal case, the existing backlink structure can be kept and used. This saves a lot of work, as there’s now less pressure to continuously build inbound links. Generally, the value of a website grows organically over several years. The value of the domain increases with the search engine ranking and backlinks. The acquisition of an expired domain is a great opportunity for website operators to shorten this long path.
