How To Easily Increase Your Web Traffic

Like most website managers, I am always looking for ways to improve my overall web presence and grow my traffic.

There are many articles on SEO, Social Media tactics, and different strategies galore.

But, in simple terms, I just showed you how to do it.

Yep, it's that simple.

What did I do?

Look at my title:  How To Easily Increase Your Web Traffic.  Do you know how many times a day people type those exact words into google?  The terms "How To / How Do I / How Do You / How Does One" are used on search engines more than any other phrasing out there.

In fact, you would be surprised on who uses these search terms on google:


While this post may not be informative as "How to add an image slider to your webpage" or "How to create a landing page for your Facebook profile" it will serve a purpose.  Within 6 months, this post will be in my top 5 overall (25,000 views or more) simply because of the common search term.

So this leads me to the point:  What do you do well.  What do you know how to do that other people are interested in?  What "How To" post can you have on your website to generate more traffic, and increase your overall brand awareness?

Think about it.

Then do it.

And promote it.

And watch your overall traffic grow and grow.
Please Share it! :)

That's cheating.

Now I'm off to create a completely unrelated post titled "How To Increase Your Web Hits".

CHEATER. You totally are driving fake traffic here. ;)

Although, I constantly put "How to" in my title. Check out the search for it on my site:

I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing this for others! By making a 'how to' your views will spike.

By making a 'how to do a how to' my traffic will increase, but as an indirect result. Not cheating per se, but same result I guess...

I'm gonna test this.

How to... trick people into believing you're sane. Got it. Wait. =P

I did a joke post on how creepy Members Only Jackets are and now daily get like 100+ hits for "Members Only Jackets."

Of course, all those hits are 100% bounce rate, so... empty hits don't mean much if you're trying to sell books or get more readers. If you're just trying to raise your numbers so you get paid more for paid reviews and whatnot though, totally works!

I'm going to try "How to send money to a completely random website that this search will take me too".

I'm ordering some money counting machines right now.

Thanks!

How to lose weight while eating what you want giving yourself a large penis and breasts ending your depression all while reading how to posts.

Thank, Q said...

Dude, you are a genius. I can't wait to do a "How to" post on something in which I'm an expert. Something like uh... uh... blogging? No, no, no. Hosting a talk radio show? No, that's not it. I'll figure something out!
