This was very interesting. I run a website that promotes sports entertainment amongst teenagers who are graphic designers or video editors. The foundation is in place (Over 60 contributors) so my only focus is how to blog consistently about what goes on in the sports world with appeal to teenagers. I am confident i took a huge step today after learning these 4 steps!
Harris then explained that he found the expired domain name 'ChristianTimesNewspaper.com' using the provider, ExpiredDomains.net. He paid $5 to buy this domain for his 'experiment'. According to him, the title of the URL alone should have been enough to show credibility. Harris published some articles on his newly acquired domain, focusing on the US election campaign between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Harris denied that there was political motivation behind the fake news. He was only concerned about the maximum profit that he could obtain with these political issues. When asked if he felt guilty about spreading untruths about a presidential candidate, Harris said that since politics was generally made up of exaggerations and half-truths, he hadn’t really done any different to what would normally be the case.
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.
Your website is dead without traffic. But getting all the traffic in the world without increased revenue is a waste of opportunity. In fact, if you run a business that operates solely online, you’d be out of business in no time if you continue paying hosting fees plus other fees that come with maintaining a highly visited website without any revenue to show for it.
Many people regard expired domains as website addresses that were previously in use, but have become available for re-registration after the contract was terminated or ran out. The life cycle of a recently-available domain can have a positive as well as a negative effect on the search engine ranking. The focus is primarily on inbound links that come from other websites.
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.

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 just started blogging and there’s a ton of useful information here. I was wondering how to use reddit and you cleared that up for me, as well as when to post to social media. Quora I’m going to check out as I’ve never heard of them-thank you! In your opinion would you also deal with any of the free traffic generators to have people come and engage, or would you skip that step? Would you use meta tags, and if yes how? Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!
Next look at where your most valuable traffic is coming from. I would do this by going to Sources->All Traffic, clicking ECommerce at the top, and then sorting by Ecommerce conversion rate. In this case, once you take out a few outliers, it looks like search engines (both paid and organic) are giving us the most valuable traffic. Another case of how blogs, social networks, etc… will increase overall traffic but not necessarily contribute to the bottom line (these things may be valuable for SEO though, so I’m not saying don’t do it, just don’t focus on overall traffic numbers as a KPI)
Web Traffic Guidance: WTG is a fast way of getting traffic to your website and works especially well while you’re waiting for your ranking to climb with Googles organic search. RT is traffic that is gathered from the internet and redirected to where ever you want it to go. This can be good source for targeted traffic. Your traffic is generated from the different sources. The price for this traffic is literally pennies per click, so it’s very easy to determine whether or not it’s worth it without spending a lot of money.
Thank you Brian. I am so brand spanking new to all this and i am really struggling with understanding it all. I have tried to read so many thing to help my website and this was the first article to really make sense however Being an urban, street menswear online store i feel like my niche is too broad?.. Ahh Feel like I am drowning maybe I need to do your course! Thanks again for the read I will be doing a lot more thats for sure
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.
It’s become even more important now thanks to the mobile sector, where there are plenty of prospective clients compared to the computer scene. While different search engines do come with select distinctions in their algorithms that affect how many regular visitors your site gets, the way to optimize your website for all of them are generally the same. You just need to make sure that you have the right keywords, have great links on your site, and excellent content.
Like you I am a scientist and like you did in the past, I am currently working on translating great scientific literature into tips. In my case it’s child development research into play tips for parents. I can already see that the outcome of my experiment is going to be the same as yours. Great content but who cares. I hadn’t even thought about my key influences. I know some important ones, but don’t see how they would share my content. I thought I was writing content for my potential customers. Is your SEO that works course the same as the content that gets results course? Sorry if I sound a bit dim asking that question.
For our client: We took the top PPC terms based on conversion and worked these keywords into existing pages on the website. We also created new high-quality content-based pages from these conversion terms. This type of strategy can work very well in assisting overall conversions on the website and driving more revenue. We also conducted a large-scale keyword research project for the client which yielded in uncovering many areas of opportunity for content development and targeting.
For MailChimp, you can compare traffic from forms and campaigns. Traffic from forms represents visitors who followed a link to your site at the end of a mailing list signup form. Traffic from campaigns represents visitors who followed a link to your site from an email. To see specific campaign names, connect MailChimp to a Form or Newsletter Block, which allows Squarespace to ask MailChimp for that information. To learn more, visit Using MailChimp with Squarespace.
5) Post at the right time. Let’s say you want to post in the r/Entrepreneur/ subreddit, but there’s already a post in the #1 spot with 200 upvotes, and it was posted 4 hours ago. If you post at that time, you probably won’t overtake that #1 spot, and you’ll get less traffic. However, if you wait a day, check back, and see that the new #1 spot only has 12-15 upvotes, you’ll have a golden opportunity. It will be much easier for you to hit the #1 spot and get hundreds of upvotes.
Brian, I’ve drunk your Kool aid! Thank you for honesty and transparency – it really gives me hope. Quick question: I am beyond passionate about a niche (UFOs, extraterrestrials, free energy) and know in my bones that an authority site is a long term opportunity. The problem today is that not many products are attached to this niche and so it becomes a subscriber / info product play. However, after 25+ years as an entrepreneur with a financial background and marketing MBA, am I Internet naive to believe that my passion and creativity will win profitability in the end? The target audience is highly passionate too. Feedback?
Hi , the post is really nice , and it made me think if our current strategy is ok or not , 2 things are important " High quality content strategy " and " Good quality Links " now joining those correctly can pose some real challenges , say if we have n no of content writers who are writing for couple of websites, to be generic let’s consider , 1 writer @ 1 website . We have to write make a content strategy for in-house blog of the website to drive authentic traffic on it and a separate content strategy for grabbing links from some authentic High PR website i.e. CS should be 2 ways , In-house / Outhouse .
Regardless of what kind of website you are running or your reasons for running it, you’ll want traffic coming in at a steady or increasing stream. There are many ways that you can actually achieve high traffic numbers, but the easiest ways are definitely with the help of software and tools. When you google alternative tools for website building, for example, you could find traffic-boosting products quite easily.
Some sites stop at selling only 10,000 visitors a day while others go as high as 1,000,000 or as low as 1,000. These sellers are going to have their own reasons for why they limit their packages the way they do, but what’s really important is to focus on your needs. If you need 10,000 visitors a day, you should look for sellers that can provide that and then narrow down your choices based on the factors listed in this section.
“Syndicate carefully: If you syndicate your content on other sites, Google will always show the version we think is most appropriate for users in each given search, which may or may not be the version you’d prefer. However, it is helpful to ensure that each site on which your content is syndicated includes a link back to your original article. You can also ask those who use your syndicated material to use the noindex meta tag to prevent search engines from indexing their version of the content.”

I love your post. I keep coming back because you always have great content I can use in my business as well as share. Since I own my own Digital Marketing company I guess you would be one of THE influencers in Internet Marketing field. I just started my business and because most influencers on twitter are talking about Content Marketing, that is what I have been writing about. But my site is only about a month old so I will just stay consistent in my writing. I’m also in the process of changing my navigation bar so be know how to get to what they want faster. Which would be “what is SEO”, etc. Thanks and would love any advice you can give me.

Targeted Organic Traffic is in high demand as organic site clicks are what most marketers strive to increase. Visitors are considered to be “organic” when they arrive at your website as a direct result of using specific (targeted) keywords on a primary search engine such as Google, Yahoo and Bing in their search for products or services. Organic traffic, sometimes called organic search traffic, or organic keyword search traffic, is the opposite of paid traffic (PPC).
