Search Engine Optimization! The much-sought-after throne which has multiple heirs and a crowd of aspirants! SEO is the key to the ultimate glory, i.e. increase website visitors in this virtual arena.
But no, there’s more!
SEO is not just about writing unique contents or stamping on click-baiting titles. In fact, SEO has a lot more to it than what meets the eye.
So, hold your patience and follow along. Let’s take you on a journey far away from the world of articles & keywords, hyperlinks and guest posts.
Get that snippet right
Snippets…those featured texts that arrive in rectangular boxes each time you post a “who, what, how” question. They precisely answer a query being asked with a “blue” link to its host site. So, how exactly do they increase website visitors?
Notice closely and you will find that most of these snippets belong to sites that do not even rank in the first ten pages of Google. However, surprisingly, they get more traffic than the rest and hence, will find themselves in Google’s first page very soon.
Whisper…Whisper… a proper snippet can increase traffic to your site by more than 100%. It’s a secret- Keep it to yourself!
Answer trending questions through your post
Have you ever thought about the questions being asked on forums such Quora and similar sites? Why do people ask these questions? BECAUSE THEY NEED ANSWERS…!
To increase website visitors, identify a common problem posted by most users in the last few days. For instance,
- How to secure organic backlinks?
- Is organic backlinks the right approach for SEO?
- Provide some information on organic backlinks.
Here, “organic backlinks” appear in a repetitive manner. So, script an article that uses “organic backlinks” as its primary keyword and provides an answer to the above trending questions.
Make short videos for each of your post
Doesn’t seem to co-ordinate, right? But it does actually!
Well, the mantra is simple, “Whatever you write, make it live”. Simply, start a YouTube channel and convert your blogs to vlogs. Say, your latest blog is about the recipe of a continental cuisine. Along with writing the procedure stepwise, make a video of the same. This entices the users more, and eventually will help to increase website visitors.
So, cook yourself or get someone to cook for you. Add your blog’s link in the video description and see the difference! Your readers will increase and they’ll just love the idea.
Avoid writing on similar topics
Often, you may find yourself writing similar contents for two different or somewhat similar topics. But this practice will have adverse effects.
Suppose, you have written two posts on an upcoming iPhone release.
- 7 facts about the new iPhone.
- iPhone design leaks for you.
Both these posts concentrate on a similar topic- new iPhone and contain near-about similar information. Now, say, one ranks 5 on Google’s Page 1 while the other ranks 2 on the same page.
So, when a reader visits your first post and likes it, he/she will search for more information. But, as soon as the reader lands on a different post with similar content, they would immediately leave the site, causing an increase in bounce rate.
Therefore, to increase website visitors, make sure to eliminate contents written on similar topics
It’s a big release!
Perhaps the biggest mistake people make is- accessing blog posts only by the “Publish Now” button. But this approach is considered to be somewhat negative nowadays.
Rather, think of your post as a new blockbuster release. Spread small hints on your website, Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages building up hype for your post. You could even make a short trailer-like video, and post it on YouTube. The outcome will definitely be significant.
Once the hype is at its max, it’s time to post the new content!
See the hits rising and likes bulking as your post becomes the new #trending of Social media platforms.
So, what are you waiting for? Remember these secrets and reveal their true powers with your website.
Go…Go…Hurry Now! Your readers are waiting for your new release.
