I can hear you groaning from here when you read the title of my post, 7 website traffic tips to get 10,000 website visitors per day. I know there are bucket loads of website traffic tips out on the Internet, however I actually do get far more than 10,000 visitors a day on one website alone.
I also know how far away that sounds, but let me tell you it's closer than you think!
#1. Links on Related Websites Only
This is an obvious one but people still ask me if you should gets links on any old site you can. NO. It is a waste of time.
When I score a link on a related website both my traffic and sales spike. This is because the right people are coming to my website to see the right content for them. You can test the waters by adding links here and there and waiting for results. You will notice that some links do absolutely nothing, while others get your website pumping by injecting bloodflow.
I have essentially learned this from dealing with Adsense. When using this kind of advertising on your website, and you gain a decent related link, you will see your earnings rise for that day. I do it all the time, in fact I wish I could do this every day. If you are not seeing obvious results like this, you must be building your links in the wrong neighborhood.
#2. Guest Posting to Steal Customers
LOL Ms. Ileane will love this one!
Many websites have the customers that you need and guest posting allows you to steal some. It is not exactly stealing though, but there is no doubt guest posting on highly related blogs gets you the right traffic you need. You might even get them to sign up to your newsletter and hang around your website for years to come.
Either way, you need to identify the websites that are strongly related to your website. For example, if I wanted to sell Web hosting, I would not guest post on a website that is for experienced bloggers already. I would look for a website that was targeting people before they actually got a website or blog. You might be able to sell hosting to experienced bloggers, but you can sell a lot more hosting to people that do not have a blog. These people are the ones that also make your traffic go sky high!
#3. Regular Posting
I have known about regular posting for years but just couldn't keep up. I saw a drop in traffic if I stopped posting fresh content and if I did post like clock work the traffic would keep climbing and climbing. Those periods where I did not post set back my traffic rise and made it harder to get the momentum back.
At the moment I am posting every second day on my Tips4pc blog and the momentum is picking up fast. I expect to get the traffic up to 20,000 visits per day very soon.
The other side of the coin here is to publish content like a madman and build traffic like that. Not really a good idea because there is no doubt that you sacrifice reader engagement when you post too often. No one has time to comment on your articles and get involved in any way. That's why I like to publish every two days. That's 48 hours of limelight and promotion for each article.
#4. Researched Content
Always make sure your content has the correct information for your readers. For example if you have a how to article, and your instructions turn out to be completely wrong, your reputation will be damaged. If you continually do this your website will not be successful and your traffic will not build up. Don't be lazy, do your homework!
Use a content curation tool like Scoop.it to keep track of the topic you research. Watch this Scoop.it Tutorial from Ms. Ileane
#5. Information in Need
If you see a whole or a gap in the information you find during the research phase, then fill it. But with a little SEO, you can really grab the traffic you need.
Websites can have 1000 articles but still not get the traffic like I do. It is not the quantity of content that gets the free traffic from the search engines, it is the right content that gets the traffic. For example on one of my websites, I had 54 articles published and was getting 1,000 visits a day. On my Tips4pc website I had around 700 articles when I started getting to the 10,000 visits a day range. Well how did I get 1,000 visits a day from 54 articles? I researched the keywords I used and promoted them. After all it was a smaller website and easier to choose the best content to promote.
Don't get me wrong, Tips4pc has promoted content but not much compared to the quantity that is published there. Basically if you have the time to create content around keywords that you know people are searching for, you will have 70% of your promotion job done for you.
#6. Organized Information
Gathering the information and publishing it on your blog seems easy, but you need to organize information to make everything easy for the visitor. I believe that writing SEO content to satisfy both the search engines and the humans is an art that has to be mastered. SEO helps you organize your content because it requires you to have subheadings, keywords, and related links in and out. All of this make sure information organized an easy for the reader to see what your content is about.
One key reason that Tips4pc is so successful is because of the way I set out my articles. A lot of the articles on this website are how to articles and have subheadings, bullet points, and screenshots. All of this makes it easy for people to follow my instructions.
#7. Teach People
The information you need can be found for just about any topic but it is how you deliver it that sets you apart. We have all heard the saying “Keep it simple stupid”. Well this applies when you are trying to teach people. Why show off and make things sounds technically difficult? Try and explain your steps and information in an easy to understand way.
Often when people are typing into the search engines, they are usually looking to solve a problem. When they land on your website, you might have the right information, but they might not understand. You need to step back and put yourself in other people's shoes. Forget about the knowledge you have and think about the knowledge they have and how they can understand your article.
For example I teach people how to build a WordPress website from scratch, even though I have probably done this thousands of times myself. Of course it is easy for me, so I cannot look at the information from my point of view. Once you realize this, you will be grabbing traffic that you never even imagined, as many other Webmasters do not think about who they are explaining the information to.
I know these methods are not the usual traffic getting tips like “article marketing” or “tweeting on twitter” because there is always more to it. You can promote all you want and get traffic to your site, but when they get there, you better just have what they want. It is as simple as that.
Following these tips I have shared will not only bring you new traffic everyday, it will also bring you return visitors, which in turn tells the search engines that your website is a worthy site to list.
