For a lot of people, the internet is a mystery. Traffic &
social media are both also a mystery. Let's stop and ask
WHERE DOES TRAFFIC COME FROM?
You can create traffic. You don't have to be subject to
any search engine rules. How is traffic created? Like, does
Facebook create traffic or do they use SEO? They actually
create new traffic. Because they've got people hanging
out, chit-chatting around the site and just creating traffic
Here is how traffic is created:
- When somebody shares something. People retweeting, FB
shares, word of mouth, etc.
- From searching: searching on google, yahoo,
- Following instructions. The step by step process
- From people being entertained. Think of how a movie is
launched versus getting traffic:
Hollywood comes out with some concept which they know
you and I are interested in, they do MARKET RESEARCH to
see what people want to watch, not just throw it out there.
Then we get the commercials and people start talking.
The news also creates traffic or buzz. The news sturs up
something, but it is short lived. News sites get a lot of
traffic. Conversations creates traffic.
Conversations - Articles - Videos = Traffic
People will always run into articles. This has been working
for 20 years.
