Here’s the infographic: Now there are dozens of reasons this infographic did so well… But a good chunk of its success was due to one simple thing: It appealed to the influencers in the personal finance space. I noticed that, at the time, a lot of high-powered financial bloggers were up in arms about inflation: So I decided to create an infographic that highlighted the problem they cared so much about. In fact, a recent study found that the number of people sharing stuff on Linked In has increased significantly in 2018: That’s great and all. Here’s an example of a contest my friend Noah Kagan recently put together: See how that works?
And this led to shares and mentions on several authority sites… But HOW do you use Linked In to increase traffic to your website? For example, here’s a video I recently posted on Linked In: 2 weeks later, my video has: Try getting that kind of engagement on Facebook 🙂 And now it’s time for me to show you another cool way to people to visit your site… (No surprise there) But what might surprise you is: you can use free stuff to get more traffic. To enter the contest, people need to give you their email address (you then add them to your email list).
And that’s largely because Google’s Hummingbird algorithm changed EVERYTHING about SEO: Instead of ONLY looking at keywords, Google now understands topics. Google said that: “Hummingbird affects 90% of all searches…”. The question is: How do you make sure that Google understands your content’s topic? LSI keywords are words and phrases related to your target keyword. This tool spits out dozens LSI keywords related to your topic: Then, just sprinkle these LSI keywords into your post… Content Transformation is simple: You simply convert one of your blog posts into another format (like an ebook, video, infographic or podcast).
For example, let’s say you just wrote a post about social media. For example, I published this case study on my blog a while back: As you can see, this post generated lots of social shares… But I knew that I could squeeze even more value out of this content.
Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to this problem: The “Upside Down” Guest Post. First, write a guest post just like you normally would. Next, include “helpful resource” sections throughout your guest post.
These sections link to 2-3 helpful resources on the topic you just covered. Finally, include YOUR content as one of the “helpful resources”.
So I considered each strategy on my list “tweetable”. That said, most old school SEO strategies simple don’t work anymore.And I got WAY more SEO traffic than I would from publishing a new post. This is one of the BEST ways to get more shares from your content.In fact, Click To Tweet Links are one of the main reasons that this post from my blog has over 6k social media shares: With that, let me show you how Click To Tweet links work: 1. This can be a bite-sized tip, strategy, quote or statistic. …they get a pre-written tweet for easy sharing: It’s that easy.And perhaps best of all, this is a completely free resource!In this post I’m going to show you 27 proven ways to increase traffic to your website.
