Regarding Link Detox, links it diagnoses as Toxic are generally fine as they're either not indexed by Google or have malware/viruses/etc., but I recommend a manual review of any diagnosed as Suspicious. I used it recently to get started cleaning up our backlinks and some legit sites and blogs were under Suspicious simply because they didn't have many links pointing to them.
In 2014, the number of mobile internet users surpassed the number of desktop users. Out of the 243 million active internet users in July 2014, only 58 million were desktop users. The rest relied heavily on their mobiles for internet usage. This is why we can say with confidence that mobile traffic is the future. The experts at Keriganmarketing.com predict that mobile web traffic is on the rise. Get on the marketing express train for only $17 for every 500 REAL mobile visitors – you can order these visitors to either a web page or an app download page!
Thanks for sharing these great tips last August! I’ve recently adopted them and I have a question (that’s kind of connected to the last post): how important would promoting content be when using this strategy? For example, through Google Adwords. As I guess that would depend on the circumstances, but I am trying to discover if there’s a ‘formula’ here. Thanks in advance!
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.
Excellent post Brian. I think the point about writing content that appeals to influencers in spot on. Could you recommend some good, manual strategies through which I can spot influencers in boring niches *B2B* where influencers are not really talking much online? Is it a good idea to rely on newspaper articles to a feel for what a particular industry is talking about? Would love to hear your thoughts on that.
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.
Increase brand recognition. Focus on multiple channels so that people see you in many places. People are drawn to what’s familiar. Familiar = Trust at a very primal level in humans. If they saw you on site A, they may ignore you because they don’t know you. But you’ve created a sub-concious imprint in the mind. When they see you on site B or in a search, they are more likely to click on your site because you seem familiar. This effect is compounded by being more places that your prospective customers are. Your channels of focus will depend on what you’re selling. Some of these channels include Industry Forums, Quora, Twitter, FaceBook, Linkedin, Instagram, Blogs, etc.
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.
E-commerce platform BigCommerce allows you to embed a “buy now” button in your blog posts and other content pages. You can use it if you’ve written the backstory about a product you offer, tutorials explaining best practices for making the most of your products, or those gift recommendation roundup articles that always seem to draw a lot of shares. Below is an example of what I mean, taken from this page.
Bid on targeted, descriptive keywords. So don't just bid on "sock;" bid on "red wool sock." Not only are targeted keywords and phrases usually cheaper to bid on--they'll also attract more qualified potential buyers. Use a keyword selection tool like Google's AdWords Keyword Tool to research targeted keywords that attract maximum traffic for minimal cost-per-click.
Thanks for the comment, I would not say it is impossible to create high quality backlinks from scratch without content, you just need to do a review on competitor backlinks and see if their are any easy targets. We have had some good luck in the education space acquiring links on the same pages as competitor from PR5+ edu sites. It all revolves around the outreach strategy in which you put in place.
Please note: To maintain a high quality in our network, we don't accept sites containing exit-popups, framebreakers (unless service extra is added), any illegal content, adult websites/content, pornography, social media pages, Rotators, paid link shorteners, bannerfarms, illegal download/streaming pages, scam, pyramid schemes, fraud, copyright infringements, gambling, Java Applets, forced installs, fake pages, any cheating, fishy stuff and sites redirecting to such content.
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.
Well as noted in the post it is not just above the links that was only one key part of a wider strategy. This website in question has deep levels of content. So it is not just about a blog section, they have numerous high quality content sections we have developed over time. It would not be advisable ever to attack competitors sites with low quality links.
In general, vehicles cannot be stored on public streets that are governed by the rules of the California Vehicle and San Pablo Municipal Codes. When a vehicle appears to be stored on the street rather than being used as a primary means of transportation, we mark it for 72 hour notice and 15 days for vehicles abandoned on private property. The California Vehicle Code Section 22651(k) and San Pablo Municipal Code 8.16.160 indicates that it is unlawful to park a vehicle on the street in excess of 72 hours. Vehicles must be driven one mile every 72 hours or be subject to tow at owner’s expense.
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.
