There is ONLY ONE WAY to drive traffic to your blog or website.
It is not SEO even though SEO helps
In fact, I suggest that you kill the google obsession and stop wasting your time with SEO in this post.
I will definitely tell you before this is all over.
Here is how to drive traffic to your blog or website.
GET YOUR BLOG VISIBLE TO AS MANY EYEBALLS AS POSSIBLE
AND COMPEL THEM TO READ
SEO attempts to get your blog visible. But there are a lot of other ways apart from SEO to get visitors to your website without.
When they see your site, they must be compelled to read it.
This means that, you must give great thought to your headline.
Your headline must capture your prospective readers attention.
Your excerpt must hook them up and make them want to read more. Every sentence should ignite interest in what is coming up next.
Before you learn the ways to make your website visible without SEO, we assume that you;
- Know your ideal client or reader
- Know the pain of your ideal client or reader
- Concentrate your blog on solving their problems or easing their pain.
- Produce high quality content that will keep your readers coming back once they discover your first post.
