So, you’ve built your site, and the next logical thought crossed your mind…how do I get traffic to this site?
There are many ways to get traffic, and there are easy and difficult ways, and cheap and expensive ways too. Let’s explore the most effective methods.
SEO with long tail keyword targeting
This is the method most newbies start with, but it’s also the most widely used form of marketing, simply because it takes advantage of low competition long tail keywords to drive traffic to a website.
These keywords are easier to rank for than head terms and you don’t need a huge SEO budget to rank for them. In fact, if you already have an authoritative website, you don’t need a budget at all because each new post you publish will rank highly due to your website’s pre-existing authority.
Whilst this method isn’t expensive, it requires a lot of keyword research and writing, so it consumes a lot of time and requires a good amount of consistent work too.
Moreover, it can begin to get expensive if you’re using it on a large scale and decide to outsource the work to save time.
SEO with long tail keywords is free in contrast to paid advertising because you don’t pay for the traffic. You only pay for the work required to get the traffic in the form of time or cash.
However, paid traffic is another great source of traffic, and you don’t have to wait for anything to rank like with SEO. You simply fund your account, create your ad, bid on your keywords, and you’ll begin to get traffic within minutes.
Once you stop paying, the traffic halts.
Another major drawback is the fact that you could lose a lot of money if your ad campaigns aren’t properly optimized for your target audience.
Most people end up with a negative ROI the first time they try paid traffic until they get the hang of it (which can take a long time, so they keep losing money).
Getting traffic from social platforms requires that you put in the effort to create a fan base on those platforms and keep your social accounts updated with new and interesting information to keep your fans interested.
When you create something new, you share it with your fans, and they, in turn, share it with their friends either on the social platform or using the sharing buttons on your site.
There are drawbacks to this method too.
You have to build a fan base first, and there are costs associated with this if you want to do it the easy way (through advertising). Also, you have to keep your page/account updated all the time so your fans won’t leave. It’s like managing additional websites.
I saved the best for the last. Viral marketing entails publishing articles that induce awe, laughter, surprise, sadness, and other emotions that drive people to share something with their friends.
These articles are on fun, interesting, unusual, stupid, outrageous, or controversial topics.
Viral marketing requires the least amount of work, time, and money, and the difference is huge. You just have to publish a viral article, get some initial seed traffic, and the traffic snowballs from there.
When people read your viral article, they share it with their friends, and their friends share it with their friends, and on it goes until your traffic explodes.
This is the easiest and fastest way to get a huge amount of relevant traffic within a short period of time, and make money at the same time too.
Viral marketing actually requires some effort, but not nearly as much as the others. You have to visit other sites, find out what has gone viral on those sites, check the amount of social shares they have, make sure your site’s visitors would be interested in the same article, and then log into your site to publish the article.
Nevertheless, we recently created Trending Traffic, a tool that can help you bypass all that work and make viral marketing easier than you could ever imagine.
Once you log into the dashboard, thousands of viral articles are displayed to you along with how many social shares they have, so you don’t need to go through hundreds of sites looking for viral articles and checking their social shares count.
From the dashboard, you can easily glance through the thousands of viral articles available (and updated daily), pick an article, decide whether it’s relevant or not, and publish it on your site automatically.
Yes, it supports integration for WordPress blogs, so it can publish articles on your site instantly without you having to log in and do it manually. This is a huge time-saver. You can also schedule articles to get published at a later date if you want.
So, it can become pretty hands-off. For example, you could schedule articles for the next 10 days, meaning you won’t have to touch your blog for the next 10 days, giving you a lot of free time to focus on other activities.
How Does Trending Traffic Work?
Trending Traffic operates on the principle that articles that have gone viral in the past are more likely to go viral again.
So, instead of researching topics, writing articles, and hoping they go viral, you simply publish articles that are guaranteed to go viral.
Trending Traffic makes it easy to discover these viral articles, and removes all the hard work from discovering and publishing them.
The average viral post takes around 4 hours to craft, but using Trending Traffic, it’ll take you 30 seconds to find and post the same content.
Trending Traffic got me 253 visitors the very first day I used it. What else can produce such results within a matter of hours?
Trending Traffic is the easiest way to take advantage of the best traffic generation method and get a huge boost in traffic without the hard work.
