[Part 2] 0 to 1000 F'ree Targetted Visitors In 30 Days

45 replies
It's back again!

Below is the second installment of my little series on how to add 1000 visitors per month to any website even if you're starting from scratch.

If you missed the first part, you'll want to read that first - it's here:

http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...step-step.html

Now for Part 2:

Part 2: Creating Content

The next part of the 30 day plan is to create content.

Warning, the next part of this plan contains... writing!

Here you're going to want to do one of two things. First if you're a writer or like writing, get ready to do some. Second, if you're not a writer and hate writing, get ready to go to getafreelancer.com and hire a writer.

If you haven't already, you should take a moment now to realize that if you want to get search engine traffic, you're going to need content. For that matter, if you're going to have an online "information" business, whether you're selling a product online, making an Adsense site, promoting your offline business, or what... you're going to need at least SOME content.

Let me say also that there are ways to get content outside of writing articles, some of which can be successful. However I'll also say that you'll find it difficult to have long term success without at least some content that's yours and only yours.

If you're in the "hate writing" group, it's not a problem. $3 for a 300 word article over at getafreelancer.com means you will be able to complete this plan for about $150, since we're going to get some articles and some rewrites of those articles.

Let me be brutally honest. If you don't have $150 to invest in the success of your website, I don't think you should be trying to make money online yet. If you have $150 spare no problem but you don't WANT to invest it in the success of your website, I also don't think you should be trying to make money online.

Now that those pleasantries are out of the way, let's get down to business.

First thing you need to do is get an article written on each of the keywords you just found.

So if you pick the first keyword on your list, say it's "stop snoring", that means writing an article that has:

1.The keyword in your article title.

2.The keyword at least once in the 300 word post body.


That's it. Forget keyword density or even LSI - they can be helpful but we're trying to keep this simple.

If you're writing the articles yourself, you need to produce one of these bad boys per day, one one each of the keywords on your list. If you're doing it with a writer, just have them write all thirty as soon as they can so you can make use of them.

Next, when you've written the 30... Uh oh, I can hear the groans coming...

You gotta create rewrites of each of the 30 too.

Don't worry it's not that hard. You can pay a writer $1.50 to rewrite the original 300 word version of it, or you can use a software like Power Article Rewriter to do the job for you.

The rewritten article should have the same principles - based on the same keywords.

Now you've got 60 pieces of content and some potential to really make some impact in your niche in the search engines.

Next we'll look at how you're going to use this content to generate that 1000 visitors.

First step.

First thing you have to do is start establishing some content on your own site. You should now post these articles to your blog (or website), one per day. (feel free to do more if you want to speed up the results)

If you're using a blog (which I think everyone should, but hey that's just me), and if you can excuse the self promotion, check this link for some free videos (no opt in) on how you should make each of the posts so they are maximally SEO friendly:


For a basic overview, all you want to do is post them so the keyword is in the blog post title. Use All in One SEO Pack so that your keyword is also in the meta keywords and description, and make the keyword bold at least once in the blog post content.

That's about all. Just one more thing!

Each post you make (excluding the first one) you want to make one link in the blog post, that links back to the previous article (or just another article) on your blog/site. This makes sure each piece of content has one extra internal link and helps in the SEO particularly for the pages competing for really long tail keywords.

Furthermore, you want to make the anchor text of that link, the keyword that the previous article was trying to rank for.

So...

Say your second article is on the keyword "exercise to stop snoring" and the first article is on the term "stop snoring". In your second article somewhere you'd include a sentence, relevantly placed that says:

"while it's possible to use exercises to stop snoring there are many other alternatives."

The word Stop Snoring, would link to the last post you did which was on the keyword "stop snoring". You'd then do the same thing in the following 3rd post, with a word that linked back to your "exercises to stop snoring" post. Make sense?

Then by the time your 30 articles are up, they'll all have at least one extra backlink.

I suggest you make this a daily task and do it one post per day. Or if you have a spare day, or just an hour or so, go through and queue up each of the posts in your wordpress, so that one new one will appear on your blog each day.

This will start to build you a base of content that you can increase by...

FINALLY...

Here's an extra step thats easy and can help give your traffic a small boost.

Make a habit to each day, add at least one article to your site... from an article directory! That's right, go to an article directory, grab someone else's content, and slap it up on your site... that's what those articles are there for!

Provided you know why you're doing it and what to expect, this CAN result in extra traffic for you.

I know a lot of times, I get stuck in the mindset of producing as much of my own content as possible, so it's unique, so it can target the keywords I want, get ranked for the phrases I want, and be used however I want. When I'm in that frame of mind, if someone said to me "hey why don't you add some good articles to your site, from an article directory for example", I'd be like umm no - why would I? How is that going to rank in the search engines when competing against all the article directories and other websites that publish it.

What this post is about, is how that thinking misses a vital point... yes, you guessed it... adding value for the reader... NOT just the search engine.

If I add 5 articles to my site today, from Ezinearticles.com let's say... I know those aren't going to get ranked well in the SE's without some serious link building on my behalf... but if those articles are high quality, having them in my "recent posts" could certainly draw some attention and have someone click them rather than leaving my site upon finishing one of my own unique posts.

Why is that important?

Well, besides the obvious fact that keeping the visitor on your site for one page longer means an extra opportunity to convert them into someone who makes you money... the number of page views per user is something seen by Google Analytics and by logic, noted by them as an indication of the quality of a site. As by the way is time spent on your site per user, all things that are becoming increasingly believed to influence your search rankings.

It shouldn't take much convincing that a little of other people's content can provide value to your readers and hence be a good idea.

The important part is monetization.

If I slap the other person's article straight up and do nothing else, sure, I'm racking up another page view, but I'm also not doing more than giving this other person's link in their author bio a bit of extra exposure, and killing any opportunity to make money from this extra piece of content myself.
Here's some measures I like to take to ensure that doesn't happen.

1. Never Add An Article Straight Up, As Is.

I like to add articles to a site but with an introduction from me. So I'll start out like:

"Surfing around the web this week I was thinking a lot about XYZ (some issue in my niche) and I found an interesting article that talked about ABC. It was rather informative and made me realize how LMNOP is in fact important and worthy of attention. I've pasted this article below for you to check out yourself. Just make sure when you're done, you come back up and check out this link"

ARTICLE PASTED HERE

------------
This way, I get the full benefit of the other person's content and idea but I make it a unique post, that I can call whatever I want, make it target whatever keyword I want, and so on. I'm also doing what I can to make sure that if they do read all the way through, they still come up to check out my link rather than the author's link.

2. Beef Up The Monetization

Since you can't go editing another person's article if you're republishing it, you've gotta do what you can to make sure if people are leaving that page, it's going to make you money.
You can't edit an article, but there's nothing wrong with sticking an advertisement in the piece of content. Whether it means wrapping the text around an Adsense block or a banner for something, you're putting another piece of "bait" out there (if you can excuse the sleazy marketing analogy) that may get taken rather than the author bio link AND without committing the unscrupulous act of changing around the author's content and inserting your own links.

3. Be Picky With The Articles You Choose

You want to pick from the cream of the crop of the articles at whatever directory it is. While so much article directory content resembles a regurgitated dog's breakfast, some of it is in fact profoundly informative. You want to pick both quality content, and content that is light on the author bio links.

You'll see certain articles with author bio's that you know have been written by a marketer and others that you know have been written by a real "expert", who does it for the passion and enjoyment. The latter is likely to be better quality and have one humble link in the author biography rather than 3 links with a super enticing offer of some kind. You know which ones to pick.

Ok, is it all making sense?

So to recap, here's what we've done or committed to in part 2.

1.We've created 30 unique articles based on the keywords we found in step 1, or committed to creating one per day.

2.We've created 30 rewrites based on those articles or committed to creating one rewrite per day. We will use these rewrites in step 3 of our 30 day plan.

3.We've either queued up the 30 blog posts and are having them appear one per day on our blog, or we've committed to adding one of the articles to our blog per day based on the SEO videos that appeared above.

4.We've committed to grabbing one or two articles per day from an article directory and adding them to our site to make sure that we're becoming the authority on the subject.

The result of all this? Here's what we want to achieve:

Eventually we want to have a piece of our content, ranking as highly on the front page for the keywords we originally chose, as possible. Simple right?

Part 3 is going to show us how to go about obtaining those rankings and picking up visitors from a number of other free sources while we're at it!

    Great tips Andrew,

    I also like to mix in a few keywords from other related articles so I can turn them into internal "in context" links.

    You say not to worry about LSI, but I also like to add a few related phrases as it's amazing at the search engine traffic you get for them. It also makes the article writing a lot easier when you have a handful of related phrases to use as an article skeleton.

    If you don't have $150 to invest in the success of your website, I don't think you should be trying to make money online yet.
    Me personally, you can get started on the internet with WAY less than that. I'm sorry but that's just bad advice right there.

    I got started using all free stuff...just for list building purposes. Free autoresponder, a free blog, with a free offer, and just perusing forums, and dropping my free blog URL in my signature.

    Then there were traffic exchanges, working social networks...and my list grew to 200. I'll admit, it took a month or two, but well worth it, and definitely a learning experience.

    With that 200, started promoting affiliate links, got some more dough.

    Made my own ebook, used some affiliate dough to purchase a website, and used my small list for testimonials on the book (plus to recruit some affiliates who were interested in plugging it).

    Used the testimonials on the sales page, got those who wanted to be affiliates signed up (using $7 dollar secrets script), and split sales with them 50-50.

    After using social networks some more, and perusing forums for other affiliates who were plugging away in their signatures, I gave the ones with the most posts, a free review copy, too...to prove that the product was good, and definitely worthy of an 'honorable mention' in one of their email blasts or affiliate promotions.

    Everyone promoted, and this not only put some money in my pocket, but also built my list, because I was asking people for their contact info after they purchased.

    Well, my list is at 2300 now. And mind you...I DIDN'T have $150 when I started.


    Just my usual rave and rant...

      Hey Kool,

      Good to hear about your success, and a cool story - great job. Though I'd say you're in the small minority.

      What I say is not "you can't succeed if you don't have $150" or "you have to spend $150 to succeed".

      But... if you haven't got a spare $150, your finances are not well enough in order to start a real internet business and while it's certainly possible, you'll be betting against the odds if you try.

      In fact it's the people who are getting into online marketing thinking that they can succeed without spending a dime, who are seeing the most frustration and least results, and those who see it as a business like any other (something to "invest" in). Because wanting to succeed without spending any money isn't a financial strategy for most people (you being an exception), it's a mindset.

      You certainly didn't have the "get started for free" mindset by the sound of it and you achieved something great.

      Hope that clarifies.

      Andrew

        Great post Andrew. Keeping it simple and easy for all of us to do. It's a good thing I actually like writing! Content isn't as big of a problem for me. Although buckling down and writing 30 articles on the same or similar topic is a little tough.

        Perhaps to the people who don't want to spend $150, you can outsource 15 articles, and write 15 yourself, bringing the costs down to $75. That's much more appealing. Perhaps you could tip one of your writers $2, and then its an even $77. Since, as we all know, 7's make everything more appealing.

    Good post...

    I think most people will get the general understanding of what Andrew is pointing out. Whether you have $150 to invest, or $75 or $25 or $1,000, this model can be easily scaled or downsized. The results will just come slower or faster, depending on how you approach it.

    Either way, it's an excellent approach to starting online with a small budget in mind, especially for a beginner who doesn't know too much about making a buck or two online.

    If you are outsourcing your articles, you still need to give an outline of the article to the ghostwriter.

    If you just send the keywords and wait for a killer article, you will be dissappointed.

    You want your articles to be "incomplete" so that the reader clicks your resource box to get more.

    If you give all what the reader wants in the article, he will go away as soon as he finishes reading your article.

    Andrew is right - you should be willing to invest a paltry $150 into your business otherwise you are not serious. If you are broke, then by all means try to use as many free resources as possible.

    I have found that the "pay for" tools typically outperform the "free to use" tools saving me a ton of time and headaches.

    I'm just saying...

      Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for Part2.
      One thing that confused me for a minute or two was the following:

      2.We've created 30 rewrites based on those articles or committed to creating one rewrite per day. We will use these rewrites in step 3 of our 30 day plan.
      I then went on to the following step "3" and said to myself "OK. why am I not getting it".

      It then dawned on me that "Step 3" really means "Part 3".
      Anyway, great post and will look forward to part 3 with great anticipation.

      Great info, Andrew! I wish I would have it when started my first blogs.Instead of this I made a keyword research for long tail keywords which have very low Daily Volume, but are highly targeted and easily bring you to the front page of the Google.But with time these keywords decay and disappear at all leaving me with very low traffic and useless keyword targeted pages.But on my guess using 2-3 long tail keywords on the page in addition to the main keyword will add some boost to the page and can move it higher in the Google listing.
      Thank you so much, Andrew!

        You don't need hundreds of pages to get a strong flow of traffic. The quality of the traffic is more important than the quantity. By carefully selecting keywords with good demand and low competition it's possible to have plenty of targeted visitors that convert well with only 20-30 articles. If additional suitable keywords are available that's great, but you don't need a lot of articles for a given niche to do well.

        This also makes it easier to build more niches as it is affordable to outsource a lot of the work.

    As an aside though not completely unrelated matter, a curious thing happened to one of my sites recently. I had a google page rank of 2 and then noticed that when I changed the wordpress theme and modified my tagline at the same time, I lost the page rank a couple of days later.

        Regarding Power Article Rewriter I was checking this software out but I found a thread here which I understood from its posts that the product could have been ignored by the owner. People are getting difficulties and support.

        I read the discription of the product and I wanted to get it. But now I ditched the idea when I found the posts in the said thread. Here is the Thread for the ones who are interested to know.

    Hey Guys,

    Lucy,

    I'd say the PR drop was more likely a coincidence than a result of you changing themes. Toolbar PR is so unreliable an indication of anything it's not even worth worrying about. And good work on your progress with the site!

    Khal,

    Sure PLR articles will work as long as you rewrite them based on the right keyword. Also killer progress mate, very nice

    Rami,

    Yeah I've heard similar about PAR of late. Another alternative and warrior made is wordflood.com - I've used that and it works well.

    There's also all kinds of spinner alternatives coming out. People have been telling me about this one ContentBoss - unlimited unique articles make PLR Articles unique article spinning system for a while but I've yet to check it out. (looks interesting)

      I normally use article marketing to make money with affiliate sales, and I have a mix of blogs and HTML sites. But I want to take one of my blogs that I haven't done much with and test your method to see how it all works out.

      Will we be writing articles as a part of this process or is this all going to be based on content on our site? Or is that a secret, only to be revealed later? heh

    Andrew:

    Thank you for your post. It is very informative. But my question to you is after we have added the post. what do we do? Or a better question is what are we trying to do with the post? Are we trying to collect names by using a auto responder or are we trying to sell affiliate products once we get the visitors or are we doing both?

    Should be be putting affiliate links into our articles to make money. I want to follow your blueprint step by step so that I can tell you how much traffic I received and how much money was made. I started it last night and will be putting up my next post today. But needed your direction before I did.

    Thanks man. Enjoying the great content!

      Just an update - I have spent the last hour or so looking for keywords based on your "part 1" and have found 54 keywords. I know you said 30 but I figured the more the merrier. Now I'm going to set up a blog since I have a domain name I had purchased a while back and haven't used yet.

    Andrew, thank you very much for the inspiring article. I believe I can do this.

    My initial goal is to build a list. Right now I want to send them a 5 part autoresponder once a day, then a monthly newsletter. This will be about updates in the field. Later on, I'll start promoting items for sale.

    My question for you is whether I should be sure that my blog doesn't give away the secrets that will be in my autoresponder series? Or is it OK to mention occasional letters as it were, as long as the entire alphabet is only put together once people subscribe?

    Regards,
    Allen

    Extra,

    I purposely left a discussion on monetization out of this series so that anyone could simply use it to get traffic and do what they want with the traffic from there, whether it's funnel it to an email list or straight to an affiliate offer.

    Rainy,

    That is Bad ASS!! Great job, keep it up and let me know the results.

    Adaptive,

    I don't think you have to be so protective of your content, but then again it depends on what your market is like and how much info you have to give. The concept of giving a lot of good stuff away in your blog posts is that people will read and think "if I can get stuff this good for free, imagine what the stuff in the Autoresponder is like!".

    Hi Andrew

    I only came across your thread the other day and have been avidly reading it.

    Where you mention about the introduction to an article from an ezine directory it made me think well in that case I can't see any reason why I shouldn't put a conclusion as well.

    What I did was to use your introduction, using my own keywords, then the article, making sure to keep all links and article source intact. I then added a new paragraph 'I hope you found this article informative and have got some new ideas from it. You may also be interested in these ....'

    Not only that but I took it one step further and added my links in bold and the links in the article 'as is'.

    The article is still intact and my own additions have been made so I hope that's OK and hasn't broken any rules. Please let me know if I have.

    Mary

    Mary,

    Sure that's ok. If you make your own text the first AND last thing your reader sees, you're giving yourself the best chance of getting the click to your own links.

    Good job - let me know how it goes!

    Andrew:

    Thanks for your response. Now I know

    Two questions: I have been adding content every day as you said and have had only two visitors, so how are we suppose to get 1000 visitors? Are we suppose to be bookmarking these post, writing articles and sending them to ezine to get more visitors or are we just adding post and google will index our blog?

    Second question: how do you add an article from ezine articles to your blog? Do you just do a copy and paste or is there anothe way so that you maintain the integrity of the author?

    Thanks very much for your answers.

    I am excited!!!

    I have 100 articles in one niche, 50 in another and 30 in another. All are unique. I have done nothing but submit to EZA and a few other directories hoping to get traffic. In the last weeks I have learned so much about what else I can do with these articles. Multiple Squidoo lens, blogs, RSS feeds, etc. I just don't know which one to start with first.

    It's hard to believe I have only just recently started putting these articles on my websites. I wish I would have done this 6 months ago. The few articles I have on the sites have started pulling my website to page one for certain keywords. I am excited to see what all these new (to me) strategies will do for me in 2+ months.

    Thank you and I too look forward to Part 3.

    Extracash,

    Yes, it's vital in the beginning that you're making your blog posts and also posting the rewritten version of the post to ezinearticles.com linking back to that post. That will mean each post gets indexed quicker AND you'll pickup traffic from ezinearticles.com - that part is VITAL.

    And 2 yes you copy and paste but keeping the authors bio in tact.

    Lady,

    Yeah thats awesome. You've got a goldmine of content there so now you can go spread it like wildfire across the web

    Thanks for the love guys, can't wait to see ur results!

      Andrew,

      I just want something cleared here if you don't mind.

      We agreed to put one original article to our site per day as well as grabbing one or two articles from the article directories.

      In an earlier post, I asked if it is OK to use good quality PLR articles as opposed to the articles from the article directories and your response was "yes, as long as I re-write the PLR articles".

      So, my question now is: Why would I need to re-write the PLR articles seeing that I am using such PLR articles as filler the same way I'm using articles from the article directories?

      Thanks,
      Khal

        When he mentioned rewrite, I think he only meant to rewrite your keyword into it that you plan to use for that article. That was my understanding.

          Hi Andrew

          Just watched Video 4 on Tags. I seem to remember reading somewhere that you need to be careful in the use of Tags, and that they can cause duplicate content within your site. The article said to only use 1 or 2 tags and even then the SE's can view the posts the tags link to as duplicate content. I don't know whether this is correct or not, but perhaps you could comment on it.

          JC

          Made a boob and put this initally in the Firepow forum:confused:

    Thank you, Andrew, for these two great and informative posts, and for your free report. These have clarified a problem I had, which concerned exactly how many articles focussed on a particular keyword phrase I should write and submit to Article Directories.

    I read somewhere that the best course of action was to write 5 - 10 articles all focussed on the same keyword phrase and submit them to the Article Directories, and I actually filed six articles like this at EZA. I must say that after the third or fourth article you tend to long for something different to write about!

    The method you recommend seems to make more sense and that's what I'm going to do from now on. Another question in my mind concerned automatic Article Submission software. The bottom line is - you've just saved me around $167! Again, thanks for all this information.
