0 to 1000 Free Targetted Visitors In 30 Days - Step By Step

104 replies
Hey Warriors,

I've been wanting to do this for a long time and have finally got around to it now.

Many who know me will have heard me say that I owe alot to the WF. And while my love for the WF continues to this day, I'm often confronted by the whispering notion that the WF just might not quite be what it used to be...

But I don't want to believe it, and I want this forum to be the best marketing forum online for many years to come. So I'm doing my part.

The following is part 1 of a series I'm going to be posting here over the coming couple of weeks called "0 to 1000 Free Targetted Visitors In 30 Days - A How To"

The content below is pretty long in itself so I'll get straight to it. I hope you enjoy!

Background

This post is going to outline a step by step plan for taking any site from zero to one thousand visitors per month in 30 days time. Or, increasing your existing traffic by a thousand visitors per month in the next 30 days.

It's not specifically how to generate a thousand visitors, as by scaling it up, or doing it more consistently, your traffic will continue to grow far past that point, but it is how to get your traffic flowing in the smartest and most simple way possible.

Furthermore, it's not about getting 1000 crappy, unqualified visitors, it's about getting 1000 high quality, targeted visitors that are the most valuable to you as a website owner.

Anyone can do this, but few people will. How effective it is, will be up to you.

Here goes...

First, Understand This...

Before I get to the first step of the strategy I want to remind you about a very important principle. That principle is that all traffic is not equal.

1000 people coming to your website from your from your twitter profile, isn't the same as 1000 people coming to your website from a traffic exchange, and neither of those are the same as 1000 people coming to your website having searched for a solution to a problem or desire they have and selecting your website as the one that appears to have the answer.

There are a lot of ways to generate traffic, and no one strategy should be used in isolation at the neglect of others. Real online business owners are open to testing everything and learning for themselves which kinds of traffic make them the best returns on their investment.

That said, few will argue that traffic from highly relevant search keywords can be beaten in terms of monetary return per visitor. Sure, in total on the Internet, the traffic available through other sources like social media, media buying, and other forms of online advertising provide vastly greater volume of potential traffic than search, I've yet to find someone who will say that in general, traffic from these sources convert more highly than targeted search traffic.

More importantly, when your site is just new, this traffic is the most important. It allows you to test your monetization the most easily, and start seeing profit as quickly as possible.

For these reasons, traffic from search engines and other free sources will be the bread and butter of this report.

Part 1: Research

The great thing about this method is that no matter what niche you're in (with the exception of a small few), there are always a huge number of long tail keywords that you can use to bring traffic to your site with the most basic optimization and simple techniques.

So the first step to getting 1000 new visitors in 30 days is to do some research. Go to the Adwords Keyword Tool at the link below and get ready to begin... (warning, this might not look like your typical keyword research)

https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

All you need to do is type in the main keyword for your niche, whatever it is. Say your niche is stopping snoring, you'd enter "snoring".

You'll get a big list of keywords related to snoring. Here your goal is to pick some keywords from this list that you can create some content on that will get easily ranked in the search engines. Here's how to do it.

You want to pick some words that have between 500 and 5000 searches per month. As I always say, these are "guidelines", not "unbreakables".

What I like to do is do the search, then click on the link at the top called "advertiser competition" twice, so it sorts the list with the less competitive keywords at the top. Then I scroll down the far right column to see which of the most lowly competitive keywords have strangely high levels of search volume compared to that competition. See the image below:



Note here that we're not using the "competition" tab in google to analyze real competition (as this refers to pay per click advertiser competition) but it is a guidelines, a starting point.

The circled keywords seem to have more search volume than the others at that level of competition and could be worthy of further investigation.

All your trying to do here is find 30 such words. 30 words that have between 500 and 5000 searches per month in the "average search volume" tab and that seem to have a low relative of relative competition.

If you're not finding any good keywords under a search for the main keyword as above, you can choose one of the keywords from the first list, and run a separate search just for it, like "stop snoring" for example. Go back and type that into the tool, click the "advertiser competition" button again, and see what you find there.

Finally, if you're still not getting the keywords you want with that, you can try this.

Go to google.com and type in your main keyword, say it's "stop snoring". (don't use quotes when you type it in Google THIS TIME).




Whatever URL appears first, copy it, and go back to your Adwords keyword tool. Here, scroll back to the top search part and on the left select "website content" rather than "descriptive words or phrases", and enter the URL you just copied.



Now you can get new keyword ideas based on the keywords that this site, which you KNOW is ranking well and getting targeted traffic, is using.

A list of keywords will appear where you can do the same as originally, sort by competition then try to find high searched words that are lowly competitive.

Once you've got a list of 30, we can perform the second part of your research, which is to analyze the search competition.

Analyzing Search Competition

If you think I'm about to say "type the phrases in Google in quotes and see how many search results appear" hold your horses.

While the typical way of analyzing the "competition" of a particular keyword is by looking at the number of competing pages, anyone who's actually done SEO will tell you that the number of competing pages doesn't REALLY tell you how hard or easy it's going to be to rank for a particular term.

Keywords often have a small number of competing pages that are highly optimized and on authority domains that you aren't going to beat.

Other terms have huge numbers of pages that are optimizing poorly and that you'll be able to topple with just a couple of links.

So how do you REALLY tell competition?

The answer is, you can't know TRULY how hard or easy it is to rank for a term until you've done it. BUT that doesn't mean you personally have to try it yourself...

Check out this...

So before, I did a URL search for that stop snoring keyword and this came up:




The top keyword was "ways to stop snoring".

So I went to Google and did a search for this term WITHOUT quotations. Here's the results:



You'll see that in position 3, there's an article published at Ezinearticles.com.

Now, why does this make me happy?

Because I too can publish an article at Ezinearticles.com, and assuming this dude hasn't built any links to his article page at ezine (which is rare but not impossible) if I out optimize him, I'll take his ranking eventually. The only thing working against me on this particular example is the age of this guy's article which is a few years - the newer the article the better it is for you.

Furthermore, I can use this to see how much traffic this ranking has gotten for the chap:



It also gives me a true indication that this keyword is uncompetitive. If an article at ezinearticles.com can rank highly with no links, then when I have a piece of content on my site based on this term that I build some great links to, I'll surely get a front page ranking too.

Now keep in mind that this isn't a PERFECT indication of competitiveness, and like anything, it can still be inaccurate - but one thing I do know for sure is that targeting keywords that show low levels of competition based on this analysis is far more likely to bring you rankings and traffic than keywords found based on the "number of pages" analysis. Try it out for yourself.

So back to our step by steps. What do we actually do with this knowledge?

Well, if you're looking for a down and dirty increase to your traffic within a short period of time, these keywords can be very valuable

Search each of your original 30 articles in Google and keep your eyes peeled for:

1.Articles from Ezinearticles.com in the search rankings.
2.Squidoo lenses in the search rankings
3.Listings from any similar social sites like hubpages, wikidot, wetpaint, zimbio, wordpress.com, blogspot.com etc etc


Now, you're going to find these kinds of pages appearing more often depending on how popular your product is to affiliates. These listings will be more common among hot clickbank niches for example thanks to all the "bum marketers" out there.

But if you have a more obscure niche, don't worry, you can still...

Go for the old "competing pages" analysis, but with some additions.

Do a search for the keywords in quotations, so "stop snoring".

Try to get keywords with under 10 000 competing pages in Google, the lower the better. When you find the terms with under 10k competing pages, also check the front page for:

- Lots of sites that don't have the keyword in the url.
- Not many sites on pages from major authority sites like wikipedia, amazon, etc.


If you go with those analyses, you'll still come out with keywords that will get you to the 1000 new visitors in 30 days.

So by the end of this step you should have 30 keywords that fit the criteria we've talked about. If you've got that, you're ready to rock this and pull those 1000 visitors in 30 days no problem.

You should be able to knock this part of the plan out in 1 day, two days maximum.

In the next part, we'll look at what to do with your newly found super cool keywords.

Let me know what ya think!

Andrew

        Andrew great post. Thanks for sharing.

        Let me add something to what Andrew said about articles.

        It is absolutely possible to rank # 1 for a keyword phrase with an article at
        EZA. I do it with quite a few articles in sub niches of the health niche. Some
        of these articles get as many as 50 views a day. That's 1500 views a month
        which isn't too shabby.

        Conversely, I have articles that get 1 view a day.

        It all depends on the niche, the true competition and how much traffic there
        is for that phrase or phrases.

        However, if you follow Andrew's simple, yet effective strategy, you'll at
        least give yourself a decent shot at ranking high in the SEs.

        Maybe someday after I sell my health site, I'll show you all the articles
        I have that are all number 1 at Google.

          All those who acted already - wow! You made writing this post worthwhile 100 times over.

          Mugil,

          That strategy you mentioned works too, anything in addition to the standard numeric competition analysis is helpful.

          Aelias,

          I think this strategy is important whether your website is new or old. There's never a time when finding new keywords is a bad idea. If you have an old domain it'll be even easier because all you do is find the term and publish a page and the age and authority of your domain may well be enough to get it front page rankings alone. Sure you can keep building backlinks to your current pages, and you should, but you might find even easier traffic putting up pages targeting new less competitive keywords too.

          And yes, always focus on the long term success of your website, couldn't agree more.

      Some good info. Long tail key words are great and can do wonders to bring in traffic. Your post seems to more geared to new sites which is good information for people that have not build or purchased a domain yet. For those of that have sites already unless you restructure your website I don't see any way that your post can help.

      For those of us that have well established sites and or domains, back links are the key. They more competitive the keyword the more back links your will need. The quality of the back links well make a huge difference. As with any sites great content that is updated regulatory great back links age of domain will determine the amount of traffic the sites receives and whether or not the site well last through all the Google updates, ultimately that is what we want, a site that can make to the top of the rankings on the first page, and then stay there.

      So if you have not built your site, think about the long term success of your website, don't think about making a quick sale here and there, in the end that will make or break your business.

        Andrew, what do you think about Josh Spaulding's approach on competition analysis? In his 5 dollar formula, he says that he only counts the average toolbar pagerank of the top 10 results (and if it's less than 3, he uses that keyword and if it's more than 3, he doesn't use it).

        I believe this is a bit short-sighted. You can use the info from this post to write an article, then optimize the article with backlinks and get a high rank for the chosen keyword phrase. That article will, of course, link to your already-established website in the bio box.

        Or, you can always add new content to your website without a restructure. This new content can be optimized for the keyword phrase selected from using this method.

        Great stuff, Andrew!

      Great information.... Thanks Andrew.

      Just wanna ask a question here....

      EzineArticles has a FULL link to each article that looks something like the following....
      http://ezinearticles.com/?Honest-Pro...?&id=201996501

      But, the link can also be shorten like this: http://ezinearticles.com/?&id=201996501

      My question is......

      When building link to EzineArticles, which one do you use? The LONG one or SHORT one? Or it doesn't matter since it's pointing to the same article?

      Just wanna be sure.

      THANKS again....

    I've already got my list of 30 kw's, actually it was hard keeping it to just 30 after I really got started. Most of these I think I can rank for without any trouble at all. Plenty of PR0's and ebay results showed up.

    Bring on Step 2!

      This is great info Andrew. Are their any tools available that would speed up the research process for finding the low competition keywords faster?

      Also, I get the part of finding low competitive keywords, HOWEVER, is there a way to see if these are CONVERTING keywords?

      So I get the research, but am having a difficult time understanding if it is worth all the time and effort if you don't know if it is going to convert. Right??

    this is just a guide to get traffic, it's up to you to make the traffic convert. once you get the traffic, then worry about making it convert well. However, what you will get, as Andy said, is highly targeted traffic for the topic you are writing about. There's tons of ways to get targeted traffic to convert into money.

    The hardest part of starting out is getting the traffic in the first place. Once you get it consitently, then you can start figuring out what to do with it.

    Hey Guys,

    Jhiggings,

    Yep, using very similar techniques

    Leon,

    Personally I don't believe that building links to your own ezine article is a good idea. I say if you're going to spend time building links, build them to your own site, not someone elses. The EZA articles will get ranked for long tail keywords just from being at eza, and if they don't, no problem because you're on a plan of continual submissions - if one doesn't, another will. And for the ones that don't, you're still building links to the content on your site that's on that keyword so YOUR page will eventually rank instead.

      Agreed!
      EZine articles rank very well, especially if you build backlinks to them. I have had ezine articles rank #1-5 with competitive terms that have over 1million competing pages.
      Howeve the trick to this is continue to ad backlinks every week, so that your article stays in the first page for a long time

    Energy,

    I'm glad you brought it up.

    Unfortunately there's no tool or strategy for really knowing which keywords convert the best because what "converts best" is different depending on what your offer is.

    The only way you can know is through testing, and paid traffic is the best way to start. You test what your page will convert at if you send X number of visitors to it from X keywords. You do the same for as many keywords as you want/can afford to and then you base your free traffic strategies on that.

    Ie, I know that keywords X, Y and Z are going to convert the best for this offer so I will put the most energy and resources into getting ranked for them.

    Hope that helps.

    Andrew

      Thanks for mentioning that.

      The reason I didn't mention it here because I wanted this to be more broad and include anyone who already had an existing site. This is not exactly about choosing a niche but choosing good keywords for your existing niche.

    Thanks Andrew a lot for sharing your keyword research strategy here.

    But I still feel that to find more long tail keywords , Wordtracker's free keyword tool is more better choice. Or we can take a keyword from google tool to put it into wordtracker's tool to get more long tail keywords to have better rankings.

    Anyways thanks a lot for this.

      Hey VB,

      Really? You like wordtracker better?

      I think both of them are innaccurate and it might well be the case that WT brings up a greater volume of keywords just because it tracks daily searches rather than monthly (where G shouldn't show a term with 40 searches a month, WT might) but then you don't know if that data is reliable at that low a search count anyway...

      Ultimately either works well.
