Tip - For Fast easy Traffic...

This is something I do, and it works like a charm for getting fast and easy traffic.

It involves setting up Google Alerts -

Google Alerts - Monitor the Web for interesting new content

I set up an alert for news only - so where it says "Result type" I choose "news".

Then I put in the main keywords from any of my websites/blogs.

Then as soon as I get an email saying that one of my keywords made it into the news for some reason - then I immediately make a post or update to my website.

When keywords make it into the news, there's usually a spike in searches for those specific keywords. And Google usually gives a boost to newly updated sites whenever there's a spike in searches for a specific keyword.

It doesn't always work, but when it does it's like an avalanche of quick traffic. It's definitely worth taking the time to do it.

    Great tip Garyv. I've recieved many, many different leads using this technique. I also use it to see where others are posting press releases - free or otherwise.

    Very good resource Gary. Like how you even gave a plan to somewhat follow. WE used to follow the what's hot in Google and do basically the same thing.

    Great simple little tip.

    Here is something that I learnt over the years.

    Google alert your keywords for you products, you will see themm pop up, that is if you do have a quality product. When you do, go there, to forums and blogs and tell them you are the owner, and more about your product and tell them you are giving 100% commisions to your affiliates and all the rest. This is a good way to share the love and get more people making you money.

    This is a great strategy, I've been using it for quite a while now. Depending on what your keywords are you can get TONS of Google alerts every single day. Huge opportunity for traffic. Thanks for sharing

    That's actually really smart. Thanks for the tip. I've used Google alerts before but certainly not for anything like this. That's a few of my keywords added and will await some alerts.

    Thanks for the idea. I really like using google alerts as well for generating traffic. But I had mostly been using it to find relevant content to comment on. This idea is a nice extension of that principle

      Good technique!

      I had alerts set for a few keywords relating to my businesses years ago to monitor reputation.

      It's also a favourite tool for the press and self obsessed celebrities.

    This is definitely thinking out of the box. Sometimes i wonder how Aliens would market a website. I'm almost confident that they would use an unorthodox method such as this technique. Thanks for sharing.
