Conquer Traffic By Writing Content With Value


You might have heard 1000 times that “Content Is King” there is no doubt in it. Effective and valuable Content get you traffic for free.

How To Write Effective And Valuable Content

For the sake of writing content please don’t write content. Before writing content do some research, Summarize, take hints of what you gonna talk about and provide value and ask yourself this question “what my reader is going to get by reading this post?”

Always remember the below four steps while writing a post…

  • Address a Problem
  • Provide a Solution
  • Tell the Benefits they get
  • Call to Action

How Many Words I Need To Write On My Blog

Writing a post which consists of 1000 to 1200 words will be beneficial to provide detailed information and it will also help in the SEO part as well. Many people write a blog very short although they claim it’s the value we write is important I do agree but providing value in detail is what I am talking about.

We need to address all the questions our readers might get in prior and I always think I need to provide complete information for my visitors.

How Often To Post

Regularly! Paul be specific… Okay At least 3 posts a week the minimum. I personally noticed when I write regular content on my site it is boosting my website traffic.

Wise Thing – Writing Reviews

Writing Reviews

Here is the Secret… Are you ready for the secret….

From successful people I learned one secret for getting traffic to our site… By writing more reviews we can get more traffic to our site. People look for reviews of product and services.

When I was checking my Google analytics I found that compared to my normal posts for my review posts views are more. So in order to increase your website topic write detailed, valuable and honest reviews.

Importance Of Internal Linking

While writing a post do link your post with other posts on your blog related to the topic you are talking about by doing this you are providing required information for your visitors and they don’t need to come to the menu or home to search for other information.

Internal Linking

Also it will help in your ranking because search engines likes internal linking which means you have enough information on your site itself to feed the customer and you are not just writing to promote an affiliate link always.

Benefits Of Backlinks And Commenting

Although there are some arguments on the backlinks whether its beneficial and is it still working… From my coach and successful people I came to know its still working not as much as before but still its beneficial to get some traffic to your site.


What Is Backlinks

When you visit others blog and read their post at the end they will be asking to leave a comment. In order to leave your comment they will be asking to leave your name, email and website. In the website when you leave your link to one of your post (Not just the raw url of your website) that’s called backlinks.

Backlinks helps in the seo part and commenting helps in branding your online business.



Do spend some time in doing research while selecting your keywords. It will help you in getting traffic to your websites.

Long tail keywords and low hanging keywords are the best.

Long Tail Keywords

Instead of going for the short keywords with more traffic go with the long tail keywords which is having average traffic.


Short Keywords – making money

Moderate Keywords – making money online

Long tail keywords – how to make money online by blogging

Low Hanging Fruits

Low hanging fruits are the keywords with less competition that is with less QSR quoted search results. QSR – Quoted search Results are the number of competing websites ranked in Google for the exact keywords.

Many asks what is the QSR number to go with, many experts advice to go with less than 100.

Social Media – Facebook

Social Media

Social media plays a very important role in getting traffic to your website. If you use the social media properly it can be a best friend for your business. At the same time don’t sound too commercial. People ask what is the magic number in Facebook related to friends, experts advice and suggest 1000.

Although there are lots of social media sites I would suggest you to focus on one social media site first.


Participating in your niche related forums will drive traffic to your site.


Many successful online bloggers often share that they are getting good traffic from Q&A sites. To suggest the best one its Quora. So do participate in Q&A sites and provide your answers and help the people without any expectation automatically you will get traffic to your site.

Email Marketing

Email Marketing

Although email marketing is one of the old marketing methods it still work wonders. You might have came across the saying “Money is in the list”. It’s the truth and by building your email list you can build your online business.

One of the way is by placing a subscriber form on your website.

Keep Your Website Active

Update content regularly and keep your website active this is a good aspect in the SEO point of view. As I mentioned write at least 3 posts per week and also check your old posts and update it if any changes required.

Guest Post

By doing guest post in other blogs related to your niche which have good traffic you can increase your website traffic. If your content is full of value it will attract new customers to your website.

Have a Mentor

Importance of a mentor

Continuous learning from the experts will help you in your online business. By having a mentor you can learn the do’s and don’ts from them. The things what I am sharing on this post How To Increase Traffic On Your Website most of the ideas I shared are those I learned from my mentor so its very important to have a mentor.
