Are You Guest Posting
A lot of people are posting about lost Google rankings and struggling to get sales and people to visit their sites. Now, I have been quite outspoken about not relying on Google alone for traffic, and I have gotten a lot of questions about where else to get traffic..
one of the best things that I have done is guest posting on blogs. I write a really good original piece, and find blogs within the niche to post on. by doing this I get more exposure for my site, a free back link or two, and a lot of great traffic, all without relying on search traffic. You can also get some cool stuff, and
just today, i posted a guest post about starting a conversation
with blog comments. This post is part of a contest for guest posters, so I have a chance to win some cool prizes, as well as the traffic I will get. ( the contest is based on popularity, so drop by, give me a comment, and tweet me,).
This post just went live less than an hour ago, and I have already seen the traffic flowing in. Last time i did a guest post, I got almost 200 visitors a day for 3-4 days, and still get about 20-30 visitors a week through that post.
It is amazing how effective it can be. Once you get into the blog community, in your niche, you will start getting invitations and requests to guest post on other blogs. I have gotten 5 myself just this week. That will be even more exposure and traffic to my site.
Yes, it will take time to write an original piece for each one, but the benefits of the direct traffic i will get, and the community I am building far outweighs the struggle of trying to do it all on your own.
no other single thing that I have done has worked so well to get quick traffic to my sites, and sales. If you do it well, you can drive traffic and even sales before Google even has your page indexed.
now, seo is important, but if you focus on getting traffic through your articles that you post, you will get the ranking,s but you will find that you dont stress out so much if you lose them.
Your Focus Determines Your Reality
