This is a site of one of my clients and these are the numbers up to this Wednesday.
As you can see the site does not have bad numbers at all 14,872 visitors/month (around 500 visitors/day) of free traffic is not too shabby, people spending a minute and 26 seconds on average, but as everything in life we want more, so he called me to see if I could help him.
So these I used my "secret weapon" to generate instant traffic and I pulled these numbers.
You can see that I am posting this the Friday May the 10, so these are current numbers and counting (I will post updates, because I know for experience the traffic it is going to keep pouring).
This month's graph (all together) looks like this:
The source of all this traffic:
The social network nobody is talking about is :..... Reddit.
So here is how I do it:
- I write an article in point form with interesting information about my main subject.
- I look for a sub-reddit related to my topic example: If I am promoting a weightloss product I may go to reddit.com/r/loseit, there are as many sub reddits as you ca imagine in all kind of topics, so look for a subreddit related to your topic.
- Write a headline such as "The 10 foods you never thought will make you fat" or "The 10 foods that will eat your fat away", the type of headlines you would read in the national enquirer (believe me they work).
- Getting traffic from reddit have several benefits, besides the backlink, it send the social signals that Google is looking for and many people will share your content on facebook (look that the image above) twiter, Google +, etc... just by the same effort,
- The reddit traffic will last for weeks and little bu little your site will generate authority and will start ranking higher and higher for your terms.
