    1. Hi there Hagop!
      We do have a video section on the site covering several topics at the moment. If you look at the category tab in the sidebar to the right you will see ‘video tutorials’ there! Glad you enjoyed your visit here 🙂

  1. How do you you personally manage so many different social media platforms? It’s a lot to keep organized and up to date! This is an area I am greatly struggling in. Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Hi Jamie,
      I’m not going to lie to you – it’s hard work keeping up! I always leave one or two social platforms open on a spare tab so I can pop back and forth to them. I find that taking short breaks away from writing content to update my social status works wonders for me. Still, not everyone’s like me so you have to find what’s right for you – how much time can you afford to put into them?
      Cheers for stopping by – hope this social marketing gig works out for you in the end 🙂

    1. Hi Julian, that’s a really good question!
      So good in fact I’d struggle to cover it here in the comment section. If you visit this link here you’ll find a ‘getting started’ guide. It’s an awesome tutorial for newbies!
      Good luck 🙂

  2. Definitely – an online business is built upon traffic. I, myself, have been looking to increase my organic website traffic and this guide is definitely a help.

    I will look more into this at another time. It suits my needs and taught me a lot. Who knew links would do so much? Great job!


    1. Yep – traffic is the lifeblood of ANY successful website! Nice to know the article provided you with a few handy pointers, good luck implementing them 🙂

  3. What a great informative site! I have of course had my own perception of how to build more traffic, but this really puts it all into context – thanks a lot for the effort of putting it all together.
    You mention the term “organic search engine traffic”. In this context: what would an in-organic search engine traffic correspond to?

    1. Hi Conny,
      ‘In-organic’ traffic refers to traffic that you do NOT draw in from the search engines ( direct traffic, referred traffic from social media etc. etc. ). Hope this helps 🙂

  4. Hey Chris,
    Great tips you have here, really helpful and straight to the point. I’ve been trying to get a grip on search engine traffic for a while now and I agree with email blasting, they really are quite powerful. I’m trying to better my content writing skills though, your tips are very interesting. What do you mean by crowd-sourced content?

    1. Hi Riaz,

      Crowdsourcing is the process of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people. Hope this helps! 🙂

  5. To get contextual links is very hard especially if it comes from authority websites. I usually do not do this because you are never guaranteed to rank because of this factor alone.

    I personally use social media to get more social signals on my website. Do you have any strategy to get high quality contextual links?

    1. Well, good content = organic backlinks.

      Keep producing unique and worthwhile content and the backlinks will be created by others linking to your work!

  6. Hey Chris,

    You touched upon the four major points that can truly help to increase organic search engine traffic. People should use your tips as they will help those struggling with their traffic generation.
    I think if people were to only focus on one of the items, it should be to create ore quality pages. While the other items are important, producing quality pages will never get old and will be rewarded by readers and search engines alike.
    Great job on this post. This is helpful and well written.
    Best Regards,

  7. Hello Chris,
    Organic traffic has been the toughest thing for me and my business right now. I will be implementing these methods to help grow my traffic. Thank you for the info. As far as social media traffic, have you heard of StumbleUpon? I ask because my traffic went through the roof, but so did my bounce rate. Will Bounce Rate affect any ranking from the search engines?

    1. Yeah I know of StumbleUpon but unfortunately it can work in both ways (as you’ve found out!). Your bounce rate will effect your overall rankings I’m afraid!

  8. Thanks for the helpful info! My own website is still quite new, but I struggle to find real ways to drive traffic to the site.

    Did you have the same problems when you were first starting out online? Did you struggle to see any significant traffic?

    This list is great, and I’ll definitely try out some of the strategies. My next big step is starting an email list, but I’m currently brainstorming what will be the best information or ideas to send to them!

    I am thinking about signing up for an autoresponder like Aweber – do you have any opinions on them?

    1. Hi Lauren,

      Yes we all have the ‘traffic problem’ when we first start out in the blogging world – it ain’t a Kevin Costner film! (build it and they will come…).

      You will find a million different pieces of advice online about this but my very BEST advice would be to just keep going – keep on keeping on!

      The more content you post the more visitors you will see (original content of course!).

      As for email marketing – hold on a minute!

      Concentrate on getting real good organic visitors to your site first, don’t run before you can walk.

      Do you even have a healthy email list yet?

      Seriously – slow down!
