Traffic is the life and blood of any online business ever since, and it’s very self explanatory. Without traffic, your blog, ecommerce site, affiliate site or whatever site is senseless simply because of it having no readership, no profits, no activity and no life as a whole. Many are also dying to find ways to getting traffic, and some do spend a lot just to make sure that they are getting their web pages in front of their targeted market.Free Traffic

So now, I’ll be giving simple steps on how you can start getting the right traffic your way for free, but just to warn you a bit, these SEO strategies – content-based manipulative link building tactics – takes a lot of effort if you’re aiming to get it in just a month.

Step 1: search for 10 – 15 long tail keywords related to your site or your main targeted keyword that have super low competition and have substantial amount of search volumes per month (at least 200 search queries per month should be fine). These keywords will be mostly composed of 3 – 7 words (which may include “how to…”). You can use Google Adwords Keyword Tool for this task, or download and use Traffic Travis; it’s a free SEO software by the way.

The sense of this tactic is to have your page(s) rank highly for these easy-to-rank terms quickly – in a month to be specific – which is much easier compared to targeting highly competed keywords that may take you several months.

The advantage of this is that you can easily get highly targeted traffic faster from these terms in which it can provide your site a good number of traffic that can easily be converted as well. Let’s say you’ve chosen 15 long tail keywords that have at least 500 search queries per month, and you get to rank on first page for those terms. Then you get to have a clean 7,500 searchers seeing your site through search engines and probably be down your way.

Step 2: after choosing your long tail keywords, it is then time to decide on which ones to shoot at first (but you’ll be shooting for all of them within the month). It is best to first choose those that have higher search volumes.

Step 3: Optimize your landing page(s) for the chosen long tail keywords (for sites with no blog section), but if your site has a blog, then it’s best to post blog entries that include your long tail keywords on the title, URL and body copy (particularly in the first sentence of the post). It’s best to make a single blog post solely dedicated to optimize one of your long tail keywords (1 blog post for each keyword).  With regards to the keyword density on the optimized page, I suggest that you keep each keyword’s density to at least 0.6 – 2.0% on the body copy.

Step 4: Once your page(s) are optimized, it’s then time to build links to them. For blog posts, I highly recommend to build at least 5 – 10 dofollow links using the targeted long tail keyword as anchor text. Links built to other sites for each keyword should be topically relevant, if possible. There are so many ways that you can build links for each keyword and here are some of them:

Step 5: This is the final blow and this is the most tedious part of the action plan – article submission. The task is simple, you’ll just have to make an article that is strictly about the long tail keyword (doing the math means you need 1 article for each long tail keyword). The long tail keyword must be included on the title of the article, in the first sentence of the article, anchor text link on the author bio box and certainly on the URL of the page.

After making the article, submit it first on Ezinearticles.com and wait for it to be approved before submitting it to other top article directories. This part of the strategy is the one that gives the strongest link, and given that you’ll be targeting for very low competition keywords, it can certainly boost your rankings in just weeks after the articles have been fetched and indexed by search engine crawlers.

If you can do all the chosen keywords in a week, then you’ll see results within 2 weeks, since updates for newly created pages’ keyword rankings usually take place at this range (check and observe your Google webmaster tools weekly to keep track of changes and you’ll notice that it usually takes only 2 weeks to see your page(s)’ current position).

  1. Great post.

    I’m totally with it. Do you believe that submitting the same article to different directories holds as much significance NOW, considering all of the recent algo changes in big brother? (G)

      • I agree with you dear that we can’t predict how a search engine is actually working and same about the recent panda update means how it works but as far as my collected data is concerned then it suggests me that there are a lot of sites affected by d update in negative terms as well.
        So what are your views on being sure that by submitting the duplicate articles our site would not get affected?

  2. First off GREAT start of this topic “Long Tail Keywords” <–that is the first thing to get outta the way.. second SEO is a long battle but it is sooo worth it once you hit on the keywords and no longer have to work nearly as hard for it.. See if you do not have SEO traffic you are constantly having to work.. If you get good on SEO you can keep it up by spending as litle as half hour to one hour a day. I love the detail you touched on in this article!

    Finding CommentLuv blogs is easy and quick, and part of any good search footprint. Try looking in google images rather than the web search to remove blogs which talk about commentluv.

    KeywordLuv is good also.

  4. Make sure to pump out unique content to the article directories in order to get the most link juice. Ever since the new Google update ( The Panda Update ), It’s imperative that one not use duplicate content or spun content to submit to article directories in the hopes of getting anchor text backlinks.

    Been two days since I found your site. I ave read about 5 articles and already folded in what I have learned into my own SEO strategies.

    I know this thread is now old, but if anyone wishes to chime in on this I would love to hear it..

    When finding these 3-7 word longtails, do you recommend Google KWT and just see what is being searched for? That is the way I think you are talking about myself.

    Then an article on the topic and you should HOPEFULLY already have a page devoted to that longtail just naturally… you are just building support links through article marketing…

    I am going after five of them after I write this ..

    Thanks Kaiser

    I can’t wait to try this strategy, Jason! I have been neglecting article marketing for links, and have been focusing too much on blog commenting, and my keyword ranks have suffered. I hope this gets my site back up in the ranks, but even if it doesn’t, thanks for posting yet another strategy to give our SEO minds a creative jump!

    Thanks for sharing your insights buddy!
    But i think generating traffic in one month is hypothetical.

    And yes looking for long tail keywords- now adays have high competition and low search volumes.
    but yeah, you can optimize for that and it can take time few months to get rankings and start generating traffic to website.

    Your concept is true but only thing is you cannot be sure if you will get ranked! :(

  12. Great post, again! Since I found your blog 2 days ago, I am eating every post on it. We are a small design agency and till now we were only stopping up to on-page SEO for our clients when designing and developing a website for them. Your practical articles are so much fun to read and so easy to implement in practice that I am starting to think of trying out deeper SEO services and link building as regular services in our design studio.
    Thanks a lot K!
