One of the first things most of my coaching clients ask about is “How can I get more Traffic to my Website?”. It’s a great question and let’s face it… increased online traffic will almost always lead to more profits. It allows you to build your lists faster, test faster and of course sell more products or advertising.
Today I want to briefly share the 3o minutes a day strategy I use to get more traffic to my sites. I recommend you pick one site and implement it there fully before moving on to your other sites.
I’m going to assume that you have at least 30 minutes per day to spend on this. Depending on how fast you write and do the other tasks, it may take you a little more than 30 minutes. If all this seems a bit much, spread it out and take 2 days for each tasks. You’ll still benefit from this approach.
Step 1 – Content Creation
Write a keyword rich blog post that’s at least 250 to 300 words long.Â Find a keyword that gets at least a few searches per day but doesn’t have a whole lot of competition.
If you are using wordtracker, look for a keyword that has 30 or less competitors.
Use your keyword in the title and once or twice throughout the content of your post or webpage for your site.Â If you have a static website, make sure you also link to this new page with the keyword as part of the anchor text.
If you are using a wordpress to run your site (like I am doing here and on most of my content sites), the software will take care of this and use the title of your post as the link text.
In the beginning it may take you the full 30 minutes to do the keyword research and write the post, but as you get faster, it should only take you 15 to 20 minutes to write.
Step 2 – Link Building
The next step that many people forget about is building links. Spend some time that same day to build at least a few links to your new post or web page. Some things you may want to do are:
- Use social bookmarking sites to bookmark the new page.
- Write an article, submit it to article directories and link in the resource box to your new post.
- Write a guest post and link from it.
- Post a few comments on popular blogs or forums and include a link to your new post or page.
- Invite others to link to it.
This is just a quick overview. I’d love to teach you a lot more about link building over the coming weeks. Take a look at my beginning link building class and my advanced link building program. Each week of these courses I share a new link building strategy with you and give you some simple “homework” tasks. At the end of the course you will not only have a good understanding of effective link building, but also hundreds of quality links pointing to your site, resulting in an increase of traffic, subscribers and customers.
