A friend recently asked, "What is the best way to get traffic with blogging?"

Below are my 3 favorite content frameworks for capturing high converting organic traffic.

The focus here is high conversion.

Your average SEO is after the highest volume keywords.

But, high volume doesn't mean high conversion. Volume doesn't necessarily translate to sales. So what does?

These days I pay more attention to user intent and commerciality. What is the user trying to do when they search for a keyword?

For example, if it's to find pricing, you can be certain they're considering buying.

These can be the highest converting keywords you'll ever rank for. They are also some of the easiest to rank for because of their long-tail nature.

Here are my 3 favorite content frameworks you can develop this kind of content within.
  • How-to posts. The most generic of them all but they work because they give a very specific answer to a very specific question. These may do well in SERPs because of this.
  • Alternatives-to posts and lists. You can piggyback off of another companies' brand equity using this strategy. I see it a lot in SaaS and I've used it a little when developing services. I am kind of surprised more smaller agencies don't do this with the larger multimillion dollar agencies that usually deliver a piss poor experience.
  • Comparison posts. 10 years ago I was still doing affiliate marketing. I realized the power of targeting brand and product keywords back then. Yet even to this day, this strategy is still effective. I would create targeting product keywords and brands. I could rank above sites like Amazon doing this and even sometimes the brand itself.

If you have any more ideas, please add.

    You need to find the less competitive keywords. YOu can use tools like Ahrefs, moz or ubersuggest to find those keywords. However you also need a good content which will tally with those keywords.

    Creative and compelling blogs with powerful titles are definite attention grabbers. On the other hand, you need to abide by the ideal word limit for a better SEO and keyword ranking. The content of the blog needs to be engaging with credible sources to attract the audiences.

    Good quality traffic? Best way is best content that rank on the first page of Google search, get clicks and convert. To rank in top 10, your content should be:
    • Long article
    • Answer to fix
    • Has external links
    • Contains media (image or video)
    • LSI
    • NLP

    Your new content should relate closely enough to your existing content, as well as the offer you're promoting, so you can convert the traffic you do receive.

    You should always ask this question: Is the person searching for this keyword in my target audience?

    1. Low competitive keyword research: I am not talking about keyword difficulty because that is a metric which is providing by tool. But I will do manual research before selecting any keyword.
    2. High-quality people engaging content that help or solve visitors problems.
    3. On page SEO without keyword stuffing.
    4. Basic link building.
