If you have a website, or a product you’re selling online, or creative work online, we have one common problem. And that problem is getting eyeballs to see our stuff.
There are many ways to get people to visit our pages (more methods are in my other articles). Some of them are paid, some of them are free. And I love free things ?.
Why I love this method
- You do it once, and the traffic keeps coming forever
- You can do this in your free time
- You can do it on your phone
- It works for any kind of business
- And most importantly, it helps with your search ranking (SEO)
My best way at the moment to get people to see my websites is to comment on other blogs. This is a simple method, and you’ve probably tried it already. But there is a right way and a wrong way of doing it.
So, here is the right way…
Now you know how this works, huh? Here is the SECRET!
The secret is hidden in finding new blog posts in your industry. If you go around making these great comments on blog posts that are more than a year ago, the impact may not be as expected.
But on the flip side, you get all the SEO benefits.
But if you can find a new post on a blog with high readership, expect good things to happen.
- You get all the SEO benefits
- Your comment is at the top
- The blog owner gets to know you and probably reply to your comment
- Other commenters get to reply to your comment
- A lot more people will click on your link
How do you get the new blog posts?
By using Google Alerts.
According to Wikipedia, Google Alerts is a content change detection and notification service, offered by the search engine company Google. The service sends emails to the user when it finds new results—such as web pages, newspaper articles, blogs, or scientific research—that match the user’s search term.
How to set up Google Alerts
STEP 1: Go to Google and type “Google Alerts”
STEP 2: Type in the keywords you would like Google to notify you of in the search box.
For example, let’s say you sell sports shoes, or you run a gym, one of your keywords would be “fitness”. As you can see in the picture below, I typed fitness, and it’s already showing me a preview of what I will get.
STEP 3: Click on “Show Options”
STEP 4: Adjust the settings and then enter your email address and click on “Create Alert”
In most cases, I leave the settings as they are. And that is only because there are loads of posts daily in my industry.
In case there are fewer people blogging in your industry, set the “How many” option to “All results” to get a good number of posts coming your way.
I hope this was helpful. Don’t just read. Please take action. I’d like to know your results after implementing this free web traffic method.
