Over the past few months the traffic to this blog has more than doubled, of those visitors over 55% are new visitors. I achieved this without buying any links or using a blog network to link back to my site or indeed doing any traditional link building at all.
Following last weeks actions by Google against blog networks I have decided to focus more on attracting visitors by engaging with them and by using more of Pat Flynn’s Be Everywhere strategy.
Building links naturally is what google wants and this is what I intend to do, by simply ensuring that as many people as possible see the blog and the content. I will encourage you the reader to share the content and I’ll share it myself via Linkedin, Facebook Twitter and Google +. On the flipside I’l also share good posts by other bloggers and I encourage you to do the same.
If we all got into the habit of sharing quality content then we wouldn’t need to worry about google deindexing our sites and where we ranked, visitors would find our sites naturally.
To do this it is important that I come up with a plan and system that is easy to implement and doesn’t take me more than 10-15 minutes for every blog post. It should also be something that can be used on any type of blog so you ,dear reader, can implement parts of this strategy yourself.
The strategy I’ve come up with is liable to change so what I’ve done is create a series of videos of what I am doing now, as things change or improve I can then replace or add to the videos rather than recording a whole new video.
Each video is going to be between 2 and 5 minutes long so you can pick and choose the ones you need to suit you rather than having to sit through lots of content thats not relevant.
You’ll find the first video below and the other videos I recorded are posted on a page inside the blog. To get access please click on the facebook like button below the video, the link to the remaining videos will then be revealed to you… sneaky!
There are currently 3 more Videos In this series If you would like to see them click on like and you’ll find the video list revealed.
Let me know what you think and what you’ll be doing to get your sites ranking, This strategy won’t be a quick fix it is a long term strategy that will build momentum over time, Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were top ranking sites. Persevere and stick with it. It will work.
