Just like this ?

how-to-get-traffic-to-your-website

Remember that though it sounds easy to drive traffic to website or blog, in reality, it’s not. Only research, analysis, and constant practice can allow you to master these skills. So it completely depends on your whether you need lots of visitors to your website or you need less.

Let’s learn how to get traffic to your website

Without explaining more, let me inform that in this post I’m going short out the best ways how to get more traffic to blog or website so that you can easily learn about the process and start driving visitors.

1/ Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO is the best and most popular way in terms of driving traffic to blogs and websites. Most people already know a lot about the process of implementation. Here I want to mention some deep level factors of SEO rather than suggesting “Do good SEO with your website”, which doesn’t make any sense at all.

# Domain Factor

While choosing your domain name to remember to choose a niche related, meaningful, easy to remember and most importantly high volume – low competitive name. You can take help of keyword tools like Google keyword planner or keyword keg.

# Page Level Factors

Page Level Factors are related to each page of your website. Before writing an article or blog post make sure you research for keywords first. Like the domain name again find some high volume but low competitive keywords so that you can rank on the first page of Google frequently.

Use tools like keywords everywhere to find even more useful keywords. You can also use ubersuggest for finding long tail keywords. Researching and using keywords properly will help you more organic traffic from search engines.

Install SEO plugins into your WordPress site. You can either use Yoast or Squirrly SEO plugin to improve your site SEO. After installation configures previously researched keywords into your articles with the help of these SEO tools.

Properly setup Title Tags, Meta Description, Headings and Permalink, etc. Optimize your article’s appearance for social media too.

Complete your on-page SEO requirements by following the plugin’s guidelines while editing your article. It’s a lot easier to do with the plugin’s help these days.

# Off-page SEO

Along with the On-Page SEO, it’s very important to earn more external links from related healthy pages. We call it backlink. Imagine you are on an Island and the Island is connected to the other countries with bridges.

More bridges mean more people will visit that Island. Backlinks are like these bridges to your website. More backlinks mean more traffic you will get.

how-to-get-traffic-to-your-website

Getting related backlink, a backlink from a high DA website, a dofollow backlink can boost your site ranking. Below is an example of a strong backlink from related niche…

2/ Publish high-quality content

Publishing high-quality content is a great way to get traffic to your website. Without a quality article, any on-page or off-page SEO optimization will not work for long.

If your visitors don’t find any helpful information page bounce rate will increase leading to a lesser priority in the ranking, which will act against your on-page SEO optimization. If you give value to your readers you will earn a repeated visit from those who really like your articles.

resource: Is a high bounce rate a bad thing?

You can also apply this technique. After preparing the content take it for a test drive across social media and track how people react to that content. If people stick with the content and respond positively then publish the post on your website properly with on-page optimization.

Once publishing the article, you can ask for a backlink from high authority websites. This is a very effective way of how to get traffic to your website.


3/ Forum Participation & Creation

You can start a forum on your website. An active forum can benefit you in three ways.

  • an active forum can quickly begin for long tail keywords.
  • a forum can reduce the site’s bounce rate while increasing the time on site.
  • the forum will create a community for your website.

# Comment on blogs

Most people advice to visit other people’s blog related to your topic and provide some valuable comment. It’s indeed a great way to drive traffic to your website. Make sure to add insightful comments related to the article topic and add your website link inside the website address box.

I prefer not to use any link inside the comment if not necessary. Adding site address inside the comment form will also provide you backlink (dofollow/nofollow) and people can visit your website by clicking on your name. Although, it’s better to avoid links inside the comment to get approved by the site owner.

# Sign up to yahoo answer

Sign up to the yahoo answers and provide helpful insight into the people’s query. Quora is another great alternative. Leave a link back to your site mentioning as [source:] and you will have lots of targeted visitors to your website.

# Post contents in forum

How to get traffic to your website from the forum?

— Follow the forum’s rule and post valuable thoughts to people’s questions.

Visit the online discussion forums where people are discussing your topic. The more related is the topic more targeted traffic you will get. Post useful contents and answer people’s questions with your site link added end of the post next to your name. Add your link only where necessary. Overdoing will lead to loss of respect in other forumite’s eyes.

There are lot’s of forum these days. Two great forums are:

Warrior Forum – Get new updates on this forum related to digital marketing.

Digital Point Forum: Digital Point is the right plate form to ask the question to the expert regarding digital marketing and googles update.

Join Free Safe – List

Free safe lists are the list of subscribers who have agreed to send and receive email to each other. You can instantly reach thousands of people by sending emails. At the same time, you have to receive email from other members but you won’t get Spam emails.

I don’t believe this is a great way to get traffic to your website because all the subscribers join the safe list to send email to others. It won’t be that effective because not many people will open your email or never click on your link but there’s still a possibility of driving traffic.


4/ Write “Inverted” Guest Post

Guest posts are very good to earn backlink and traffic as well. But how can you get the most out of it?

When people read a post they usually tend to skip the author bio section.

It’s a normal behavior of people, you can’ force them to read the author section.

Whenever we publish a guest post, we ask the owner of the website to place our site link inside the author bio section. Or sometimes we do put our site link inside the post.

If people don’t see the links in your author bio, they are not going to visit your website. How will you solve that?

Well, “inverted” guest post can increase the [CTR] clicking the possibility of those links. Read how to get traffic to your website with an inverted guest post step by step.

#1. Write your guest post as you always do.

#2. Throughout the post “add helpful resources” section where necessary. [once again don’t over do it]

#3. Among all other helpful resources add your site link as one of those helpful resources. (make sure that drive people to a related page)

Here’s a good example of additional resource:

Adding your site link among these additional links will increase 78% more chances of getting clicked by people.


5/ use “content transformation” to get more traffic

This is a very simple idea.

It means you can convert your blog post into another format. It can be video formate, a PDF file, a great infographic or it can be a podcast.

The reason behind this content transformation is to increase the engagement of visitors.

The engagement increases the chance of getting more share…

How-to-get-traffic-to-your-website

and comments on your article…

comment-how-to-get-traffic-to-your-website

You can also create an amazing video from your post, explaining the post in a more interactive way so that people can easily figure out what you want to tell them.

Once you have created a nice video upload it into YouTube as well as in Facebook, and add a reference link back to your website.

YouTube can help your video get millions of views and referral traffic from the mentioned link. Facebook will do something similar as well.


6/ Start Using “Click To Tweet” link

Click To Tweet” is a great way to get more share of your content. When more people will share your article on twitter you will start getting lots of traffic.

You might be thinking about how to get traffic to your website using “Click To Tweet“?

The first step is to find something tweetable in your content. This can be a quote, quick tips or it can be a piece of recent news related to your content too. When your readers will click on the link he will be redirected to Twitter to tweet the exact message.

Like this,

credit: buffer

Now for WordPress website, you can use either a plugin called better click to tweet or you can use clicktotweet.com as an alternative.

Using better click to tweet plugin is easy but in case you don’t want to add one more plugin in your WordPress, clicktotweet.com will help you do that.

To configure a “click to tweet” like this, visit clicktotweet.com and sign in with your twitter account. After signing in, type the message what you would like to embed in your site.

See the screenshot below.

click-to-tweet-clicktotweet.com

Now go to theme embed and select the HTML theme and copy the HTML code for your website.

generate-click-to-tweet-html

Once you paste your HTML code the click to tweet link will appear inside your content.


7/ Reach Bloggers To Promote Your Website

Once your post is published you can try to reach other bloggers (Niche related) and genuinely ask them to share your content.

It won’t be easy…

So how will you do that?

First, you need great content which deserve a share and which have the ability to help a lot of people. Or it can be a trending topic either.

You can use Google Trend and Twitter in combination to find those topics.

Now what?…..

Find bloggers who have previously shared your articles or contributed with you. Send them a personalized email informing that recently you have published an article which will be a good combined with his content and can act as a helpful resource.

and attach your article link inside your mail.

If he/she likes your content there is a higher probability that they will share your article in social media or add it as a resource inside their content.

Either way, it’s a win-win strategy.

Tip: Don’t ask the person directly to share your article. If they think your content is good, they’ll share it.

Share from multiple bloggers can lead to a sudden traffic spike.

This is exactly what I found in the analytics tool last year from such a blogger outreach.

traffic-spike-how-to-get-traffic-to-your-website

8/ Update & Republish Old Articles In Social Media

Twice in a week, you may write a new post to keep your blog up to date. But it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take care of your old contents.

You can re-check and add additional stuff inside the post or update any outdated strategy. By keeping your post up to date you can reduce your page bounce rate as well as user experience to some extent.

You can update your post title as well.

Example: Previously I published a post “50+ Dofollow Backlinks List To Boost Your Traffic In 2018“…

And recently I have updated the post content & title to “99+ Dofollow Backlinks List That Will Boost Your Traffic In 2019 [updated]

This post has 500+ social shares and also ranked in the first page of Google for seven different long tail keywords. This post alone gets 1/4 of the total traffic of this website.

So when you update your post, what will be the next step…..

You need to share your post in social media or forum like Reddit. Remember that you need to share your old post once in 5/6 months. Oversharing will lead people to avoid clicking on your post.


9/ Make An Active Youtube Channel

If you want huge traffic to your website an active YouTube channel is really necessary. But make sure the channel is ACTIVE not just a live channel.

You must be thinking why?

As of January 2019 rankings, YouTube remains the second best popular website on the planet. So to get even more traffic to the website you are recommended to have a channel where you mostly post about your site related contents.

You can even create videos of popular articles inside your blog.

You can set up your channel for free. The most essential task is to learn how to make a good video for YouTube at the beginner level.

The HARD part is to get views on the videos.

But it won’t be for long if you follow the correct strategy. Then, how will you find the perfect strategy?

10/ Publish Viral Posts

How Ping o Matic Can Boost Your Link Building in 2019

Do you know, when it comes to link building there are lots of proven strategy available.

Which strategy are you currently using for link-building?

Well, you can use any strategy for building links to your website. The ultimate goal is to drive traffic to your website as it encourages both search engines and real traffic as better source of information.

In reality, link building takes a lot of effort. Honestly, I don’t want to discourage you but the fact that even if you try so hard to create a good link profile most of the time efforts goes in vain…. absolute zero result.

Did you ever think why?

There can be couple of reasons why those links never worked.

One of the primary reasons is, if a spacific page is not indexed by search engine then the links included inside that page won’t make any impact to it’s referenced page.

Until and unless search engine does not discover those links, no growth will added to your site link profile. If that happens chances are those backlinks won’t be able to boost your pagerank on Google.

Also read: how to submit url to google search engine

In such situation how will you fix the problem! Here I can share one trick which always works best for me and many others as well.

You can use ping sites which will add value to your link building work and most importantly the time investment. With the help of ping site you can manually notify search engines to index any page of any website.

Here is the advantage, you can now notify to index your guest post, or your own page, or any other page where the backlinks are recently updated towords your domain.

You will find many tools which allows you to ping search engines about a page. But I want you to choose them wisely.

Most of the SEO expart who really knows their job so well use ping tools like Ping o Matic or premium tool like Onehourindexing to get faster indexing in major search engines.

So why not you take this opportunity to make your link building more efficient and fast! Since, some of these ping tools are free to use you are getting more than enough opportunity to bring value to link building.

I always use ping o matic for manual pinging after article publication so we will first discuss about this awesome service.


What is Ping o Matic?

As you might have guessed by now it’s a kind of online tool that will submit your given URL to several search engines, communities, directories, content aggregators and some other places as well. Ping o Matic is free to use and there’s no limitation.


How Reliable is The Service?

According to ping o matic, founded by wordpress foundation, developers regularly check downstream services for updating the pinging process to make sure the services are still legit and working properly.

In ping o matic, not many pinging services added but what they have added are the most important ones.

Recently I was experimenting the difference between using and not using ping o matic with one of my new website and the stats says it everything.

In February with the link building procedure I haven’t used any kind of ping service. Not even after publishing a blog post. And in March I did the same effort to build links but I used the ping o matic tool.

Pagerank and traffic started to increase and it was a great satisfaction after testing ping o matic in real time.

Ping-o-matic-analytics-link-building

How To Use Ping O Matic

Using ping o matic is really very simple. All you need to paste the URL which you want to ping and select the related ping service. After that click the “start ping” button. After a few seconds you will be shown a complete notification.

Ping-o-matic-url-submission

That’s it. ?

By now the URL is being submitted to different search engines, directories, content aggregators, etc.


Reason why you shouldn’t avoid this tool

Well, there’s no bounded rule for using ping tools in SEO. You can directly submit url to google for indexing using the webmaster tool. But what about the backlinks from other sites?

Additional read: how to submit url to google without signing in

In link building you can call the ping tools as bonus points. Who will leave free points by the way? ?

Most importantly to your backlinks indexed you have to use tools like Ping o Matic. Remember, almost 80% backlinks on the whole web remains de-indexed due to neglecting or not informing the search engines.

This is the reason most of the SEO campaign fails and remains useless. So here it the key… Use ping service to get most out of your effort.


Limitation of Using Ping Tools

As I have mentioned before you can use ping o matic and other similar tools for unlimited time.

Now you may have a question, what will happen if I use it over and over again?

Think about you are asking the same question to a person again and again! What will happen normally?

The person might get annoyed of the question. Same thing happens with the pinging services.

So you should avoid pinging the same URL many times a short period of time.

Recommendation is to ping one url only 2-3 times from different pinging tools. Overdoing may lead to increase your domain spam score.


What Are The Ping o Matic Alternatives!

Since we are talking about using multiple ping tools, it will be better to include other tools which offer reliable service like Ping o Matic.

The ping o matic alternatives are:


Is There Any Ping O Matic WordPress Plugin!

Pingomatic is a stand alone tool. Since it’s easy to use my first choice is always using the original tool.

However there’s a wordpress plugin [ not tested with latest wordpress version] which work with pingdom and automatically send pings once you update your blog posts.

This ping o matic WordPress Plugin is available in WordPress repository as Ppinger, developed by claverplugins.com.

This plugin includes all the pinging services available in pingomatic tool.

Alternatively, you can use “update services” in your wordpress settings. Go to wordpress dashboard >settings >writing >update service and include the ping service url. Click save to complete configuration.

This will do the same work like pingdom. So remember if you want to use ping tools don’t include service url inside your settings.


So my aim was to encourage you to use this tool which will boost your link building effort and I am done with my part.

Now it’s your turn to start using ping tools and see how it works. I hope you will get better result soon.

Don’t forget to let me know if you find it helpful.

MailChimp provides less section in graphics compared to GetResponse. It contains a great range of HTML forms to create and design email templates. They focus more on sending simple, clean but engaging Emails to get an interesting point on the original stuff.

Like GetResponse, MailChimp is also delivering automation for starting the business conversation with clients, such as Data-based automation and RSS to mail.

A/B testing and another multivariate testing is added to know the audience in a smart way by experimenting with new subject lines, layouts and images on audience segments.

User Interface should such that it doesn’t confuse users which is more important nowadays. GetResponse has little bit confusing interface as it disturbs the flow of contents on a web page. Elements are stacked up on the web page in a puzzled manner though they have explained each and every terminology and features in detail.

MailChimp provides an uncluttered interface. They have maintained the flow by categorizing various activity with elements. They also come up with the guiding articles and tips for their users.

Final Review: User Experience is more eye catchy and easy in case of MailChimp compared to GetResponse.


Conclusion:

By understanding the concept of the marketing mix and 4P’s (Price, Product, Place, and Promotion) if you choose email marketing for branding and design then you should try these two services.

I would prefer GetResponse over MailChimp (If I focus on growth). Though in price, it is a little bit costs then MailChimp but you will get the best and advanced features. If you are looking for Mailchimp alternative for ecommerce, Omnisend can be your option.

milesweb-wordpress-hosting-review

Here Yslow could be better but as I use Analytics, Gravatar, Rocket loader and Google Adsense, my cache control header have a negative impact on page performance.

Note: You can use the alternative of Adsense to get rid of this problem. My Pingdom report (With caching enabled)

Moreover, the site performed well on Google Page Insight Tool too. Here’s the page insight score (Caching enabled)

These performance scores on three major speed tester tool were greatly improved for my website after switching to MilesWeb WordPress Hosting, which of course reflect the technology used behind it. Autoptimize Plugin configuration also played a vital rule for such improvement.

I’m pretty sure that if you choose any of the 6 WordPress hosting plans and perfectly set up your favorite caching plugin, you will get a great page performance (Another great satisfaction for webmasters).

4. Speed Technology – MilesWeb WordPress Hosting

Previously, I have mentioned speed technology many times. MilesWeb’s speed technology is one of the biggest reason people choose them. They have a powerful combination of SSDs, LINUX server, Cloudflare Railgun technology, HTTP/2 server, GZIP/Brotli Compression, Server-side caching, WP-CLI and CDN support. All these are responsible for faster content delivery and fluent user experience.

7. Multiple Data Centers

When you install your website on MilesWeb WordPress Hosting, they will serve your website from four major data centers. India, UK, US, and Romania. These data centers will take care of your availability across the globe.

MilesWeb’s data centers use redundant storage to make sure that your website should never go down due to any kind of technical or electrical problems. It was quite the problem with Bluehost when they experienced a network outage which caused tons of error on their hosting plans.

Fortunately, MilesWeb is taking preventative measures BEFORE a possible issue occurs. Impressively, while buying a plan for your hosting you can choose your data center as well. Make sure you select the nearest one for better performance. More data center means wider availability and less downtime + added CDN service will boost page loading efficiency.

MilesWeb has great uptime technology too. Previously, if you had any website downtime, internal server error, bad gateway or connection failure, with MilesWeb you won’t face those problems. In my case, what I had monitored my website for one month which result was just outstanding.

In 30 days the website was down for only 1 minute, which is 0.02%. So the uptime remained as 99.98%. (Too close to their uptime guarantee 99.99% )

You can track your website uptime with the uptimerobot tool.

9. Highly Classified WordPress Hosting Plans ($1 Minimum Price)

MilesWeb WordPress hosting offers 6 different plans. Each one of them is separated by the number of resources and external add-ons. The two primary categories are divided into 3 subcategories.

  • WordPress Hosting + Free Domain Name + Free JetPack Plugin
    • Ace
    • Heart
    • Diamond

Check the image below for details each plan:

milesweb-WordPress-hosting

The minimum starting price of WordPress Hosting plan is Rs 69/month (~$1). This plan is good to start with a possible low traffic website. With increasing traffic later you can migrate to heart or diamond according to your website requirement.

The Ace plan doesn’t provide any free domain name but it comes with free SSL and jetpack plugin. However, the rest two plans offer you lifetime free domain name + free SSL certificate + Free jetpack version. My recommendation for a better website is the Heart plan with unlimited bandwidth, unlimited storage capacity, free domain name, and free SSL.

This is certainly a killer combination to start with. In case you need multiple websites in the same hosting then you can select the Diamond plan.

  • Managed WordPress Hosting + Premium Tools + JetPack Premium Plugin
    • Jack
    • Queen
    • King

Check the plan specification in the image below.

The minimum pricing of managed WordPress hosting start with Rs 616/month (Jack Plan). This plan includes 5 GB SSD storage to deliver highspeed data transfer. Jack plan is suitable for a website which gets about 10,000 visitors in a month. Free SSL certificate and premium jetpack plugin will be available with this.plan.

The advantage of Queen plan over the Jack plan is unlimited SSD storage capacity and 10,000 traffic capacity added. Like Jack, Queen also provides free SSL and Jetpack premium plugin.

King is the highest plan MilesWeb Managed WordPress Hosting offers. Unlimited SSD, Highly extended traffic capacity, SSL certificate and JetPack plugin with extra add-on is the advantage of this plan.
