Here's the SUPER SIMPLE traffic tip.
I've been testing this out on a couple of websites, and it's certainly brought in about 25% more traffic since I implemented this on my sites.
What is it that's been bringing so much more traffic?
A Q&A PAGE! aka... FAQs
I was doing a search looking for what I needed to patch a hole in my canoe...
And what popped up was some Q&A pages from different canoe stores in the area...no google maps or anything like that.
I realized that a lot of people these days type in questions to find what their looking for, rather than just a couple general keywords. .
I also caught myself doing a search for a problem which is probably pretty common. Internet Explorer wouldn't open but Firefox would. I started typing the previous sentence into google and it started popping up with long tail options, took the words right out of my mouth.
Why did google give me that suggestion? Because people are asking that question and similar phrases, very long tail.
Go to google and start typing in a question to a problem people may have. Google will predict what you're going to type and give you potential options, all are VERY long tail.
Grab Google's suggestions and throw it into the keyword search tool and take a look at the traffic, some may be slim but so is the competition!
So in a weight loss niche, dedicate a whole page to Q&A's related to it.
- Can I really lose weight by drinking more water every day?
- How long do weight loss pills take to work?
- Do weight loss pills really work?
- Can sit ups really help me get six pack abs?
- Why won't internet explorer connect to the internet?
- Why does my computer freeze when I ....
- Why does my computer go slow when I...
- Get creative.
**This also helps give your website some internal linking points, and maybe a nice affiliate link to some antivirus software or backup package
I literally have been getting about 10% more traffic to one particular niche site of mine by adding a Q&A page. Mix some long tail keyword research into this page and achieve pretty good results...with next to no REAL effort.
So I hope this little tip really helps! It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to implement this on your blogs and gain some valuable targeted traffic.
