Today let’s discuss how to get traffic to your website, FAST.
So the obvious thing is you’ll need to write quality helpful content to appeals to your audience. The real problem is, even with quality content, it takes time for Google to see and trust your content to start sending content to your site.
So how can we speed this process up? We don’t have 10 to 12 months for the powers that be to send you traffic. We need to get it now.
The fastest results I’ve found came from using Pinterest and YouTube.
Pinterest can be an unbelievable source of traffic. I used to think that Pinterest was a chic site and a large part of the Pinterest audience is women. If your niche site is all about DIY, fashion, health, recipes, weight-loss, any of that kind of stuff, well, that content gets shared a lot. However, don’t think your niche won’t work there. Go to Pinterest and do a search on just about anything and you’ll probably find pins and boards on the subject.
So how do you get traffic from Pinterest?
First, write the post… but I’m sure you knew that already…
But not just any post. It needs to be quality content, that’s really helpful and people are going to want to share it. Then we’ll just pin on Pinterest.
When you create your pin, consider adding a great BIG and TALL image. I’m talking 300 pixels wide by 650 pixels tall. Big and tall gets noticed and that’s what you need to grab their attention. I might add two of these images and add them to the page. When you pin the post, Pinterest will see the images.
One other thing you can do is join group boards and then pin some stuff there. Keep in mind, you don’t always want to be selling or you’ll fall into the spammy habit. If all you is pin your own stuff, you’ll get booted from the group board. Remember to share stuff you found from other boards. This will help build your following too.
In a short time, you’ll have a pin that does well on Pinterest and brings in the traffic to the post on the site. Google starts to notice and think, your post has good content and starts sending other people to your post.
