Optimizing for Organic Free Web Traffic



Now the fun and games begins! 

I’m going to show you all the steps to take to bring in large amounts of good engaging traffic to your blog.
All of these methods are free and won’t cost you a cent. If you’re just learning about blogging then you will find out that traffic is very important. Without it the website is dead.

Ranking For Small Volume Keywords

I’m going to cover this first since it should be done when creating the articles.
This is a huge traffic source for me and it’s often overlooked. When writing articles most people want to target a specific keyword and they usually stick with one keyword.
I choose multiple small volume keywords that will get me to the front page without any back links.
I choose keywords that have small search volume, something like 300 a month.
Why?
Well, I choose a bunch of them then sprinkle them throughout the article. If I get to the front page for 5 of those keywords and they have 300 searches a month each then that adds up to 1500 a month.
So my article is now in front of 1500 potential readers a month and that’s just one article.
If you have multiple articles doing this can you see the potential?
Once your domain gets stronger they will rank better and faster.

This is how you do it.

When you write an article head over to the Google KeywordPlanner. You can find this by searching for it on Google.
There will be a section where you can put in a keyword. I put a keyword in about "how to play piano", the planner started spitting out trout keywords for me.

So now what you need to do is mention those keywords in your "how to play piano" article where they fit in the best. Do each keyword 2 or 3 times depending on how long the article is.
Over time, Google will recognize your article and keep bumping you up. If you wrote a good article you will get to the front page for most of the small volume keywords you have chosen.
There is no time frame when this will happen but the stronger your website gets and the more articles you put out the faster it will happen in the long run.

Organic targeted traffic is the best traffic, it always has been.

Niche Related Comments
Find related blogs to comment on, it’s slow traffic but it all adds up.
You will get a nice consistent flow of traffic with the more you do.
Head over to Google and find some websites. I just do a basic search string.
Here’s a trick to increase traffic. Find articles that are new, so a week old and comment on those or even 24 hours old.
If the post gets very popular your comment will be at the top, you will get really good traffic if the post gets popular or they rank for some good keywords.
When you leave the comment there should be a section where you can put your website address. When people click on your name it will take them to your website or page you put in the website section.
Keep things natural, don’t just go around spamming.
Answering Niche Related Questions
This is a great way to get traffic when starting a blog, You can do this through Youtube or your sites. You can
aslo Head over to Quora and type in your keyword, find questions to answer.
In the picture below I found someone asking if they can learn how to play piano by them self so I would go in there and link them to this my article that would be related to the question.
I would explain to them what the best methods would be then drop a link.

This is a very effective way of getting traffic to your blog when starting out. It will become a consistent flow of traffic forever since there is a good chance of the topics ranking in Google.

Use The RIGHT Social Media Platforms
Everyone will tell you to use social media but what platform is best for you?
Find 1 or 2 platforms that fit your niche then work on those hard.
I use Twitter when I first started my blog I worked on that hard and it brought in so much traffic.
Why Twitter?       
Twitter fitted my niche the best since it was about making money and online marketing.
Here’s another great example…
Pinch of Yum is a food blog that was started by a teacher, she found that Pinterest is where her audience hands out. Pinterest now brings in a HUGE amount of traffic for her.
That’s nearly 55,000 pins, can you imagine how much traffic that brings to her blog? Ridiculous amounts.
She was smart and went with the right social media platform to promote her content then concentrated on that.

Posting On Facebook And Twitter And LinkedIn 

I’ve kept this separate from the social media method above because that was more about building up your social media accounts.
This method is about becoming active in Groups.
On Facebook, there are groups for almost any topic and niche.
By using the search bar you can find groups to join, once you’re in the group become active by adding value. You will soon become a valued member then you can drop links to your articles.
Twitter and LinkedIn works more or less the same but it has communities or hash tags you can post to.

Growing An Email List
This is a must!
When you grow an email list you can then send out your new blog content, your returning visitors will share it. This will put the new content in front of new readers for you.
I use Aweber for my email list management. This method isn’t free I’ve added it as a bit of a bonus but get Aweber free for 30 days.  These are all potential return readers as it’s a must to build something like this when you make a blog so you can send out newsletters and let them know what’s going on and also make sales from your email list.


To collect the emails you should create some sort of optin form or popup on your page. I use a plugin called Thrive Leads to do this there are many others you can also use. It’s a common plugin and you would have seen it around before on other blogs. You can create good looking forms like this. (you have probably seen this before) If you want a highly recommended alternative way apart from blogging to generate leads you can go read my review about My Lead Gen Secret.

Final Words For Starting Your Blog 
I’m going to end it here because that’s all there really is to it, that’s my tutorial  From Step 1 to Step 3 showing you how to start a blog. Anyone can try the steps I shared and that’s how easy they are.
You can grow your blog to thousands of visits a month even if you’re just learning to create your own website.
You just need to be active in your niche and make sure you optimize those articles for a bunch of small volume keywords as well as any high volume ones you plan to target. You can also use paid traffic to your blog but that we will discuss later in the training.
Building up a blog with these steps might take time to organically rank  but remember  Rome wasn’t built in a day and if your content on your blog is what people are looking for you can always drive interested readers to your products via free traffic or paid traffic to get your bank account ticking

If you don't know what type of products to use on your blog you van proceed to the next point on the tab bar                                 "2. Find Your Products".
