Traffic Tidbits You Can Use NOW

Traffic has not eluded my business, in fact, I have seen some really cool ways that my websites have paid for themselves. Often, it is a long tail keyword that pulls in my traffic.

Long tail keywords are those that people type in the search engine that either asks a very specific question (how do I get traffic to my golf blog) or is very specific in nature (HP w2408h Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor). These are queries that are usually accompanied by a need or desire for results or a product. Peter Parks called them buying keywords, because most of the time, people who are searching for these terms are looking to buy.

I am not going to give you the whole step by step of how to get these buying keywords, because it took me forever to understand it myself. I will tell you that you have to make certain you are adding content to your sites consistently. Your keywords will develop themselves if you are taking the time to add content that is useful to your market.

Like if this were an article about “try keyword elite for free,” I would have placed a subhead above the previous paragraph (ok, I guess I will do it, to illustrate the point).

Use the Google Analyticator WordPress Plugin on your blog to find out exactly which keywords are bringing the visitors.

Backlinking Makes Your Articles Better

Once you have your content and you have it posted on your blog, article directories and any other places you might have it, you are going to want to enable that content to give you  more traffic. The best way to do this is to link to your content from as many web 2.0 sites as possible.

These Web 2.0 sites can be anything from Squidoo, Hub Pages, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter or any forum with a rank of 3 or higher. You can find forums easily in any niche (market) you are targeting by doing a Google search for “your keyword forum” (obviously you should replace “your keyword” with the keyword you are targeting). Just go down the list of forums and create profiles with them – make sure you take 5 minutes to fill out your profile completely – including your link to the content that you want to link to.

Do this on 3 sites for each piece of content you write. You can do more, but if you do not want to have an additional fulltime job, I recommend doing this on only 3 sites for each piece of content.

Getting Confused As To When You Should Be Doing What?

Writing articles to get traffic to your website can be a drag if you do not take the time to set yourself up to doing it the right way. Too many writers start out trying to do too much in too little time, which ends up being way too many too’s… the burnout is already starting, it just hasn’t become noticeable yet. A little simple preparation can make the writer’s job more enjoyable, and not nearly as time consuming.

Bob Yeager once showed me a simple trick for becoming more efficient. He would do all of his research in a 4 hour block of time. He would research keywords, topics and products to promote. He would take copious notes during this period.

His writing would be done during a separate 4 hour block of time. When he was working on the actual writing phase, Bob would write emails, articles, blog posts, descriptions for video submissions and video scripts. In fact, Bob would also write the abstracts for the article sites during this time.

As you can see, while you are in one particular mode, you should stay in that mode until you have completed all of the tasks you have on your to do list that have something to do with the mode you are in. If you are researching, then you would research everything that you have on your to do list. The list is crucial, since you are going to want to find each project as quickly as possible, so that you know exactly what you are supposed to be working on during this particular block.
