How do I get website traffic quickly?
While you’re worrying about quickly getting traffic to your website, let me tell you a couple of things that you will need to “manage the traffic” that you want to earn quickly.
- Web hosting that can take the pressure of high traffic. Let’s assume, you get 100k pageviews a month. Shared hosting isn’t an option for such a high volume of traffic. WordPress hosting will be helpful only if you use WordPress as a CMS. Dedicated/Managed WordPress will cost at least $20/month on average.
- Quality content that serves the search intent of the end-users of the search engines. Let’s say you get 1000 organic page views a month per post from search engines. Now you need at least 100 articles published on your website. Each article has to be at least 1000 words to fully cover a topic and really add value.
- Content writers who can write 100 articles for you. Or if you choose to write, you will need to publish one article a day and still work for 3 months and 10 days to write 100 articles.
- Tools to track the traffic, get content ideas, manage the income you will generate with that traffic, create graphics, images, infographics for the blogs you write, and some tools to bring back the traffic to your blog. Repeated visitors are the most valuable form of traffic that Google trusts.
And there are several other things that you will need to get traffic quickly on your website. The intention behind telling all these things is to introduce you to the truth. You should know what it takes to have a high-traffic website, before even owning one.
Even if you work hard for 100 days, you will still need to focus on writing and not on the traffic. If you’re blogging for the first time, you will need to get the basics right before you get into any of this.
There are 1 billion blogs on the web, producing 200 million posts per day. Google gets 5.5 billion searches per day. By the time you read this, over 97k searches have been made.
How will you get 3333.33 page views per day, when the global Google search volume is 5.5 billion per day?
It can’t be random. It has to be strategic.
I know, you must be thinking that you can buy traffic, as several answers to this question are telling. But do you really think a trillion-dollar company would be fooled by such paid traffic?
A company who’d accused of knowing more than we know about ourselves.
Wouldn’t they know that the traffic to your site is coming from a bot/machine? That real humans aren’t visiting your web pages? The traffic to your website goes through Google servers (since Google is the search engine used by the end-user)
These automated systems can’t bypass the traffic through Google servers, so what comes to your site is bot traffic which can easily be differentiated.
