InternetJon here and I wanted to share with you guys what 100% Google Proof looks like... and I don't mean that in the case of new SEO software or backlinking methods or anything of the like, but seriously check it out:
Over 70% referral traffic! Not that I'm slamming SEO or anything of the likes, and I'm definitely not recommending that you stop trying to gain results from search engines because the results from it are equally huge. It's just that I didn't ever realize there was this much traffic in other places.
So how'd I do it?
Glad you guys asked! It was a hard transition but it was WELL worth it. All I had to do? I started marketing like a normal person would. What did this mean? I quit posting useless backlinks in the same places as everyone else, I quit pointlessly doing social bookmarking and bla bla bla....
All I did was engaged the users of these websites. Your site is about dog training?
What everyone else is doing for a link: dog training
What I'M doing for a link now: Click here => NO cost Dog Training guide!
All I did was marketed my site like Google didn't even exist. Honestly, to me at that point it might as well have been dead. The craziest part is that after honestly committing to this for 4 months... my search rankings even went up.
I know it might seem painfully obvious but are you doing it? If you want it broken down super simple what I have been doing is putting twists on common traffic sources and engaging users (yup, once again... it's that important!). Get these people involved, get them interested in your website.
If you're after the nitty-gritty details then here are some of the exact sources I use:
- Social Bookmarking
- Guest Posting
- Press Releases
- .... basically I'm everywhere!
Now... a lot of people would look at that list and think "hah, such outdated 2005 backlinking methods" but we aren't getting back links. Think of clever ways to shuffle traffic from those websites to your own.
It's really not that hard (and trust me, I started from scratch!) to do it. These websites have thousands of visitors that are interested in your niche... you just need to get their interest.
Hopefully this wasn't too long for you guys but I just wanted to share with you exactly what I've been doing to successfully get visitors to my sites. If you have any questions fire away and I'll be more than happy to help!
