I am building a crypto content website and wanted to test if Twitter and Reddit can be used for traffic and organic rankings.
I purchased the domain on 2018-08-12 and took about a week to put together the website
I hired someone to add some content and share it on Reddit, Twitter and other social networks on a regular basis.
Didn't want to do any other link building methods at all.
Search for crypto news network on Google and you can see the website BloqWire on the results in the first page (or on second according to your regional google results).
- Reddit and Twitter is fantastic to build traffic if you share good content
- Twitter hashtags really send you good traffic if you time the tweet really well and get some retweets
- Google really counts the links from Reddit and twitter as backlinks
- If a content site, always use Wordpress.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Also, share your thoughts and insights on making it go up further. Thank you for your time.
How much traffic?
For those wondering about the amount of traffic from reddit, I'm not talking about a few hundreds, I'm talking about tens of thousands of visitors (there are posts that got more than 5000 visitors - to single post, yes)
How much ROI?
If the site keeps building more and more traffic and better organic rankings, can definitely charge more per sponsored posts. If you're wondering how much other similar content sites are charging people to publish sponsored articles, take a look at this:
Looks very much like a professional website, I'm more curious of how much is the cost of development?
Currently the site gets about 30-40k visitors per month. About 70% referral/social traffic, 20% direct traffic and 10% organic search traffic.
If you think you are that high because of reddit and twitter...you are a clueless loon.
Complete nonsense....the worst?
Only use wordpress...
WP is a huge piece of bloated sewage that doesn't do a thing magically for anyone.
Except someone peddling rides on unicorns.
Wordpress is without any doubt the best CMS and easiest to build search engine friendly website. Wordpress has the most active and engaging community and it has a plugin or theme for almost anything and everything you need to make a QUICK and highly search engine friendly website. You sure can build such a website using any technology, but considering the ease and time needed, wordpress is definitely the one to go.
Google definitely gives good value to visits you acquire from social networks, just like contextual links from other relevant websites in your niche or in general.
You may disagree, but just my experience.
We're talking serious money here just to maintain your presence.
Are you getting back whatever you're putting in your investment?
Reason I'm asking, we do not use your channels and surely a penny
to promote our site and yet our "return on investment" much greater than,
what I'm just guessing your numbers.
There must be something you're not telling us, or maybe patiently waiting
when somebody will ask you to tell how so you can sell "How-to book".
You may check any (popular) crypto content websites - they all get good number of sponsored posts and blockchain projects pay nicely for posting about them on sites with traffic. So that's what I'm aiming at.
Not at all patiently waiting for someone to ask what I have to sell here. Nothing to sell.
You posted this on Reddit too. You are ranking for something that nobody searches for. Nobody.
Getting ranked for long tail low competition keywords are the first step. The main goal is to rank for better keywords for example crypto news or other keywords that bring traffic.
The site is now on page 2 for 'live crypto news' and page 4 for 'crypto news'.
It has nothing to do with Reddit or Twitter. You could have done basically nothing and you would be ranking in the same spot. |
Don't mislead people with this Reddit and Twitter nonsense.
