When I first started blogging years ago, it was more so about blogging every day rather than learning how to get instant organic traffic to my site for some seo juice but also for more readership.
What I learned along my journey is that you can post every single day, but if you’re not getting those backlinks in (in addition to great content, keywords, yada yada) then it will take a long time to get a good amount of organic traffic.
What are backlinks?
In a nutshell, backlinks are incoming links to a website from another website. So let’s say I write an article on EzineArticles dot com. In the article itself or in the resource box at the end of the article, I can place a hyperlink for readers to click on which will take them to my website, landing page, or blog post.
It looks something like this:
Now, if I were doing this in the actual article body, it would be done like this:
EzineArticles has an Alexa rank of 10,980 which is great for traffic volume btw.
Overall, it will take some time, but it doesn’t have to be stressful or complicated. Those are two ugly words that I despise.
The good part about posting on these sites to link back to your site is that you do not have to create new content. Simply make what you have interesting enough that people will want to read more, on your own blog.
Alexa Rank: 379
Medium is a hub for writers and bloggers to share their stories, ideas, daily news, and basically whatever comes to mind. The possible amount of traffic you can link back to your site is insane and the reason why so many bloggers use the platform.
Just take a look:
Simply sign up and start writing!
Alexa Rank: 25
If you’re not on LinkedIn publishing your content, you should be. Not only is the platform great for B2B networking, but it’s also a traffic powerhouse. LinkedIn has over 460 million users per month, so you do the math. Simply sign up (if you’re not already on) and start writing your articles.
Alexa Rank: 6,842
The Warrior Forum is the largest Internet Marketing forum online. So, if your content is related to anything that has to do with online marketing, copywriting, seo, affiliate marketing, etc, you could probably benefit from posting in the blog section of the site and the forum to help other marketers. Here’s a snapshot of my blog on the site:
Alexa Rank: 140
What I love about Slideshare is that you can turn any blog post into a presentation and get more link juice to your own blog site. Here are some facts about Slideshare:
►Slideshare reaches over 60 million people a month.
►If you have an article or blog post, put some of the text on slides with your keywords and get more traffic to your content and site. Link back to your website for a quality link.
►Slideshare takes out the text and puts your presentation into a doc format under your presentation for more seo juice.
►You can build your tribe by people subscribing to your profile.
►It’s connected to LinkedIn and you can put your presentations there as well for more traffic.
►The Alexa rank is 140 with a page rank of 8 and that means the site gets tons of traffic
►It’s inexpensive, but you have to upgrade to get to the analytics and add a form to capture contacts. You can still reach a wide audience with professional presentations.
Alexa Rank: 41,190
Inbound is a platform where you can ask questions, have discussions, and provide valuable content to help others. It’s where many business owners go to get advice from other marketers. Publishing relevant content here is great for engagement and problem solving.
Alexa Rank: 50
Contrary to what some people may think, Tumblr is actually a high domain authority site with high ranking power. It just so happens that Google loves to index Tumblr blogs so having backlinks to your site from Tumblr can really help with instant organic traffic and your seo ranking.
Have any other sites to share for instant organic traffic? I’d love to hear about them.
