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!
An e-commerce store: You can buy traffic, but think for a second. Do you really think that they will purchase an item of your’s?. Try to get a targeted country wise or age appropriate set of customer mail list in case of an e-commerce website. In order to find this, you will have to research in the dark web and deep web. It will be expensive as hell if you want to purchase this traffic. Also SEO and re-targeting and re-marketing works well.
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.
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.
Hello Mr. Miller, this is a great post indeed. I would like to ask, you suggested to cpture reader’s name and email quickly but how quickly. Should I grab it by showing them subscriber box as a pop up when they arrive at my blog or should I post this at the lower part of page so when they read the post and find it useful then they subscribe to my posts?
Hack #1: Hook readers in from the beginning. People have low attention spans. If you don’t have a compelling “hook” at the beginning of your blogs, people will click off in seconds. You can hook them in by teasing the benefits of the article (see the intro to this article for example!), telling a story, or stating a common problem that your audience faces.
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?
I would like to talk about a case study for a large start up I worked on for over eight months in the Australian and US market. This client originally came to the company with the typical link building and SEO problems. They had been using a SEO company that had an extensive link network and was using less than impressive SEO tactics and methodologies over the last 12 months. The company was also losing considerable revenue as a direct result of this low quality SEO work. So, I had to scramble and develop a revival strategy for this client.
