The number 1 thing you should focus on to get traffic is, great content. Why? Because that’s what attracts people to your website. Great content gets linked to a lot, on both social media and blogs, but only if people can find it in the first place.
Links help you rank high in Google. But none of this matters if you don’t target your blog post for something people are actually searching for in Google.
That’s where keyword research comes in. Keyword research is all about finding keywords that get the most searches in Google.
Optimize readability and proof read your blog posts. Think about it this way, if you go to one of our blog posts and it’s just 2000 words, no paragraphs, no headlines, no images, are you going to invest your time reading it? It’s unlikely you would.
Now that you have found a good keyword and written a blog post, you need to optimize your post for that keyword. A big part of how Google decides on where your blog post will rank in it’s search engine is based on how much it likes your website.
Google wants to link to websites that are up to date, user friendly, trustworthy and popular.
Here is a list of ways to achieve this: have a contact page with address and phone number, get HTTPS in your website URL, add a sitemap to your website, always fix broken links, improve your page speed.
You can Tweet/Facebook your article and a whole load of people will visit it. If the article is amazing, people will share it.
