Nice post. I was wondering if all this content of your strategy was been writien in blog of the site, or if you added to content in some other specific parts of the sites. I don't believe 100% in the strategy of reomoving links. If Google just penalize you taking into account your inbound likes, It would be so easy to attack your competitors just by buying dirty link packages targeting to their sites.
We also trained a deep neural network—a computer system modeled on the human brain and nervous system—with a large set of bounce and conversions data. The neural net, which had a 90% prediction accuracy, found that as page load time goes from one second to 10 seconds, the probability of a mobile site visitor bouncing increases 123%. Similarly, as the number of elements—text, titles, images—on a page goes from 400 to 6,000, the probability of conversion drops 95%.8
Hey Kosta! As a fashion blogger myself, I totally understand where you’re coming from! I think a great way to incorporate the tips Ramsay uses here is by trying to find a way that you can use your outfit shoot to help/give suggestions to your readers–tips on layering, pattern clashing–that way the post is also more likely to be shared! (well that is at least in my own experience!).
There are also risks associated with expired domains: The invested sum for the purchased domain is only worthwhile if the website really brings traffic and has a good reputation. In the worst case, you 'inherit' any liabilities the abandoned domain might have – for example, problems with bots, spam attacks, or Google warnings. It is therefore very important to find out as much as possible about the relevant domain in advance.
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.
Step 4: Give away irresistible free content for priceless publicity. Believe it or not, a really easy, frequently undervalued strategy for getting traffic is giving away free content to other websites. Even just two or three well-written articles can generate truckloads of traffic, as long as they don't contain a sales pitch. You want to include rare, hard-to-get information that'll lend your articles automatic value--the kind of information that establishes you as an expert in your field.
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.
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.
I feel I have great content…but most of it is within my email marketing campaign instead of my blogs. I’ve used my blogs to include links to my email marketing campaigns to lead to my product. In your opinion, should my blog content be the priority? I find my marketing emails sound more like a blog than just a “tip” or a reason to grab people to my list.
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!
For that last part, stick with four sentence paragraphs and three paragraph articles. This helps make visitors feel more at home and enjoy reading on their computer. More to the point, it’s also a way to put a location on where you are as far as reading priority goes. The better your content, the better your location, which all those hrs spent worth it.
Fab Ramsay! What a post dude. Passion screams at me. You can follow practical easily if passion fuels your following. If that makes sense. I don’t pull in that type of Google traffic but I have the passion to fuel my drive, to reach that point. Really, loving what you do makes what you do fun, and if you’re a fun loving blogger you’ll detach from outcomes to do the slow stuff, mentioned, that leads to these staggering results. Thanks dude, what a resource!
Pop-under ads are a lot like pop-up ads except that they appear behind the browser instead of obnoxiously covering the page your site visitor is browsing. Pop-under ads tend to be more effective than pop-up ads because they don’t hamper your experience with the site you are currently on. Users have learned to just click exit when a pop-up ad comes up. Pop-under ads can be viewed at a later time of the users own choosing, encouraging the user to give it a second thought.
Page loading time is obviously an important part of any website’s user experience. And many times we’ll let it slide to accommodate better aesthetic design, new nifty functionality or to add more content to web pages. Unfortunately, website visitors tend to care more about speed than all the bells and whistles we want to add to our websites. Additionally, page loading time is becoming a more important factor when it comes to search engine rankings.
Use the right anchor text. Using our previous example: if you wanted to internally link to the “how to make money” blog post, you can write a sentence in another blog, like “Once you have mastered [how to make money], you can enjoy as much luxury as you can dream.” In this case, the reader has a compelling case for clicking on the link because of both the anchor text (“how to make money”) and the context of the sentence. There is a clear benefit from clicking the link.
"We started to experiment buying website traffic a few months ago. We tried several different companies that were worthless and their traffic was untrackable or nonexistent. We then tried SEO WEBSITE TRAFFIC and immediately saw the difference. The traffic shows up perfectly in Google Analytics so we could see that the traffic they were sending was 100% genuine. Better still was the fact that the visitors we received loved our site and kept returning. We now purchase a traffic package every month from SEO WEBSITE TRAFFFIC to increase our visitor base."
So many great tips! There are a couple of things I’ve implemented recently to try and boost traffic. One is to make a pdf version of my post that people can download. It’s a great way to build a list:) Another way is to make a podcast out of my post. I can then take a snippet of it and place it on my Facebook page as well as syndicate it. As far as video I’ve started to create a video with just a few key points from the post. The suggestion about going back to past articles is a tip I am definitely going to use especially since long-form content is so important. Thanks!
Miss Untargeted – This is the visitor you get from Reddit, Hacker News, Drudge Report, etc… when you post a great blog. They give you that big awesome spike in traffic that never seems to result in increased conversions. They make you feel good about your traffic numbers, but really they have no intention of converting on your website. They also make your site-wide conversion numbers useless, and cause Sys Admins to pull their hair out.
Hi Brian! I enjoy reading your posts and use as much info as I possibly can. I build and sell storage sheds and cabins. The problem I have is that there are no top bloggers in my market or wikipedia articles with deadlinks that have to do with my market. 95% of my traffic and sales are generated via Facebook paid advertising. Would love to get more organic traffic and would be interested in your thoughts concerning this.
Use online dictionaries of synonyms like Reference.com to generate synonyms for your main keywords. Other similar tools include Thesaurus.com, Oxford Thesaurus, or Synonym.com. Even if you write blog posts for a very specialized niche, you should still be able to find synonyms that Google can then pick up to better understand and rank your content.
