How I increased my blog’s Search Traffic by 44% in under a month

I’ve been blogging for over 2 years now, but I didn’t really optimize my blog for search extensively – which is kind of odd, since I work as an SEO.

Mid last year up to last December has been a very busy stretch for our fast growing team. Growing our company and working with our clients somehow limited my time in maintaining this blog (especially in publishing new posts on a regular basis, which led to gradual loss in search traffic).

So when year 2013 started, I decided to re-optimize my blog (some parts of it), a week before I published my recent post about Advanced SEO tips for blogs.

The result was definitely interesting, as I get to improve my blog’s search traffic by 43.92% with minimal effort, in the first 24 days of the year.

The core concept of what I did to optimize my blog is quite simple:

When a page or a blog post has a high user-activity rate from its alternative keywords, it perfectly means that its content is very relevant and useful. This also means that it has high chances of getting more visible on search results for its other long-tail keywords, as your data proves it.

Finding effective long-tails on Google Analytics

There are 2 simple ways to identify long-tail keyword variations that are sending good traffic to your site. These are simply the queries that you haven’t really optimized your pages to rank for, but people use them to find your site’s content.

The first one is through Google Analytics’ Organic Search Traffic data (Traffic Sources > Search > Organic).

Export your site’s organic search traffic data into CSV or excel format. It’s easier to segment your list of keywords once they’re in Excel.

Be sure that you’ll be downloading everything (from the past month or 2-3 months), by expanding the rows displayed (on the bottom right part of the table), also by exporting the rest of the pages.

Once you have exported and collated the list of keywords from Google Analytics, you can start segmenting it by separating the keywords you believe are attracting highly engaged visitors from search engines.

I start segmenting using 2 primary metrics here:

You can sort your list based on these 2 metrics (and with common sense as well), and also start transferring feasible long tail keywords on a new tab of your spreadsheet. It will look something similar to this:

You can then check each keyword’s approximate search volume to see if they’ll benefit your campaign once you start reoptimizing your pages. Run these keywords on Google Keyword Tool.

Another way to find possible long-tails that you can use for this optimization process is through your site’s Top Landing Pages’ data (Content > Site Content > Landing Pages).

Check your site’s top landing pages on GA, particularly the old pages/posts that are continuously generating incoming traffic from search engines.

Identify other keywords that are sending qualified traffic to them (have high time spent on site and send new visitors to the site), by adding “Keyword” as a secondary dimension for the table (Traffic Sources > Keyword).

The table will then display the keywords that the page is getting found by searchers with.

Run the search queries that you’ll find from this keyword discovery process on Google Keyword Tool as well, to gain better insights on which ones to utilize to improve your existing pages/posts’ search visibility.

Once you’re good with the list of new long-tail keywords that you’ve generated, you can start optimizing your site’s pages where they’re designated.

Reoptimizing your blog/site with newly discovered long-tails

Basic on-site optimization can certainly do a lot of amazing things. Advanced could be great and shiny, but at the end of the day, advanced is just being really good with the basics.

So in this part of the process, I just chose 20+ keywords – which I’ve gathered through my Google Analytics search traffic data – to start with.

I’ve tracked the pages where they are sending good traffic to, and optimized few of its basic page elements to improve their search visibility.

Title Tags

I updated most of the title pages (not the post title), so I can include the terms/variations in which they are getting highly-engaged search traffic.

For instance, I updated this post’s title tags as it is continuously getting unique visits for the query “link building for competitive keywords”.

There are also cases wherein I changed the title tags so that the content wouldn’t be time-sensitive. Like on this post, which was originally titled “link building in 2012: scalable link building”:

Meta Descriptions

I don’t actually include meta descriptions on my posts (I think 80% of my posts have no meta description details). So if I see that it’s impossible to change/edit the title tag (if it’s already great and ranking very well for the primary keyword), this is where I use the other variations.

From the screenshot above (excel list), you’ll see there that one of my posts are getting search traffic from these 3 variations – “viral marketing strategies, viral marketing techniques and viral marketing tactics”.

So I targeted these three with the help of the title tag and its meta description:

Another simple example, is adding a single word on the meta description, just to make the page more visible for another long-tail (that I wasn’t really targeting before).

In this case, I just added the word “new”, for the page to be able to target the keyword “new SEO strategies”, in which the analytics data prove the page’s content is also relevant with.

Internal Links

The entire process is also a great way to diversify your internal links’ anchor texts. Build new internal links to the pages that you’ve reoptimized using the new set of long-tail keywords you’ve discovered from step 1.

You can also choose to reoptimize and diversify the anchor texts of the already existing internal links pointing to them from older pages/posts on your site.

Use Google Webmaster Tools (Traffic > Internal Links) to track pages from your site that internally/contextually link to a page you want to optimize.

Build new signals

Create new signals for search engines to crawl, re-index and recalculate your reoptimized pages/posts. Several ways to give them reasons to recrawl your site are:

 

Final Blow

The strategy doesn’t end here. Take advantage of the process, since it can help continuously grow your site’s organic traffic.

Make this process a part of your monthly SEO tasks

Try discovering new keywords that could bring potential leads/customers to your site through your already existing pages.

The whole process, including the reoptimization of a few pages/posts, only took 20 – 30 minutes of my time. The result was far more than what I’ve expected, so what more if I keep doing it on a monthly basis.

Use your search traffic data to guide your content development strategy

Along the process, I also found keywords that tackle whole new ideas, in which they deserve a new post absolutely relevant to them.

Your list can throw bunch of content ideas that you can write about in the future. And the best thing about it is that people are really seeking for it.

    Yeap, sometime we forget to optimize our own web properties in favor of working for our clients. You’re not the only one 😉

    By the way, make sure that if you are comparing DEC to JAN your data might be skewed because of Christmas.

      Thanks for the input Triaan.

      I actually considered that as well (also compared my Nov – Dec search stat, almost the same thing – about 6% increase). My search traffic also dropped (about 10% since September last year and remained the same up to Dec, which I feel might have to do with the EMD update), but it’s now getting back to its normal amount of weekly/monthly search traffic :)

    Looks like a great strategy, well laid out, great article. Thanks for your detailed explanation. I believe there is a plugin that automates this for you that is called Hit Tail. The unfortunate reality however to the whole thing is once the beta version of Chrome is released your not provideds will increase from 10% of Chrome users to 100% of them. What do you do when 95% of your keyword data is Not Provided?

    When exporting data from GA, there’s no need to export multiple pages. Just set your rows to 500, then find that parameter near the end of the URL string and change the number of rows manually there. It may take awhile to load everything, but you can get as many rows as you need on a single page and then run a single export. Much more efficient than patching data together from several sheets. :-)

      That’s a great tip Rebecca, I didn’t know that either.

      Good post Jason, cool to see some actionable stuff that gets the brain ticking a bit. I’m just trying to create a report which shows the how the best terms convert per page and then optimising around that.

        I also tried using conversion data (from analytics) as the main metrics in finding good long tails before. I think it’s also efficient, though I find this one simpler (for readers) 😀 But yeah, I would love to see a post/guide on doing clean reports for this type of audit process, maybe you can do it and I’ll update this post referencing yours :)

    Hi Jason, Thanks for this comprehensive article. GA really does provide a lot of insight and most of them are still untapped. I’ve recently found out unique search strings leading to our site, though not all of them have high search volume. But I decided to optimize it for those keywords anyway and so far it is contributing not just traffic but also conversions. Btw, just thought you should know (if you haven’t already addressed it) that some of your tweets are still referring to your old posts’ titles, like Link Building in 2012 and another article from 2011. 😉

      A minute or so (average time spent on site) is a good start. I also consider (30 – 50 seconds) – as some might have just bookmarked the post.

  14. Just thinking about this the other way around, if you are getting traffic as a result of tweaking title tags, then it indicates that Google pays attention to title tags? Yes?

      Yes, it’s actually one of the biggest on-site factors that Google look at when ranking web pages. But of course, they also use other signals to determine if the page is really worth ranking.

    This is an excellent post. I’ve recently started looking at some of the long tails that hit our site and optimizing our blog to further cater to those searches. But, I never actually tried internal linking as much.

    Do you think internal links are as useful to Google’s algorithms as the external anchor link texts? Or are they a whole separate story altogether?

    I like this! Thank you for sharing this informative post with us. As a website owner or a blogger we all want our traffic to increase for whatever benefits we derive from it and for this reason many people put in a lot of effort towards the excersise of improving visibility on the serps which will lead to more traffic if the blog or website is visible.

    Very nice post Jason! I implemented this type of strategy for a client but pulled in multiple conversion points (client site converts in multiple ways) and found that to be the most actionable at increasing revenue but I like your angle to identify long tail traffic that has good engagement rate. Good stuff!

    The reason why the SEO industry gets a bad wrap is because SEO’s themselves don’t have Great platforms. They like to teach people how to do SEO without implementing and making their own sites great.

    Also few people optimize for the long tail searches, which makes it an easy pathway to higher traffic. Combine the above techniques with the Google Keyword Tool to find keywords with a minimum of 90 monthly searches, and then blog about such.

    Hi! I left the world of search engine optimization 2 or 3 years ago and became a full-time mom. I was originally a writer/blogger-turned-SEO specialist (turned homemaker) and I found your article very helpful. I’m losing a bunch of blog traffic recently and I have no idea why. I don’t have the luxury of time to “tweak” everything (and enough coding knowledge, too) so this strategy, I think, is perfect to get me started. Thanks and more power to your blog! :)

    How do you see the list of keyword phrases under “Search, Organic” vs. the ones you find under “Search Engine Optimization, Queries” in Google Analytics? I see the first as being those that drove traffic to my site and I see the latter as those that showed in the SERP’s but perhaps with some optimized blog posts, could improve ranks and the long tail? I was just curious if you had thoughts about which ‘list’ is the better target to optimize for as I’m about to test this idea myself.

    Thank for that Jason, learned loads!

    I had a couple of questions though, if you have a minute.

    1. Would you mind going into a bit more detail on how you chose the keywords to work on? You talk about ordering by visit duration and new visit percentage, but you don’t choose the highest of either in the examples. Is it a case of choosing the highest ranking, but the least optimised? Or is it worth working on those that bring in few visits, but could be promising?

    2. Is there a reason why you don’t change the post titles, only the title tag? Couldn’t
    a change to the post title compound the effect?

    Thanks again,
    Colin

    nice post. I always get a little nervous, when I see an Excel screenshot with manually inserted coloring 😉 Also there is an GA api for those tasks, working with the interface is not a scalable solution, the api allows for automation of this task. I use a VBA macro to pulll the data and crunch it to our needs. You should have a look at that.

    We have started to work on the same way Let see how much traffic will increase. As mentioned by above Zung Tran I think the same can also be applied to big blogs you have to work hard.

  44. As a matter of fact, SEO means fresh relevant content. Now, when I say fresh, that doesn’t mean new article written or new video published. It means re-optimizing your pages once again. Any change makes you novel and original once again. a

    Remember, they are just robots; they don’t feel you.

    I just want to ask one question. Did you compare first 24 days o January with 24 last days of December? It looks like that on the graph. It seems there was smaller traffic during Christmas.

    Nice well laid out post with good theory, however your stats don’t show a true 44% increase… That is total visits including people that have been to the site before. If the post is indeed about optimising the site then you are talking about unique visitors which only shows a 1.85% increase.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that traffic is lower through Christmas as you can see on the graph so of course you are going to have some increase when comparing January with it.

    I don’t know you and don’t like to make trouble, If you are going to make a post like this then the data should be explained properly that’s all.

    Jason,

    Thanks for this excellent post. This is definitely why publishing content on a regular basis is so important – it gives you raw data to work with to help you decide what to write about next.

    Next step I would add is to start setting goals in Google Analytics for your site so you can start drilling down to which keywords bring in the most leads and convert to affiliate sales/customers.

    Really good walk-through. I just tried it out for our website and blog and discovered some additional keywords that were under the radar. I also had a lot of “Not Provided” keywords but what can you do. Its a good idea to do this every few months and re-evaluate keywords.

    Hi Jason,

    I’m glad I discovered your blog through a social bookmarking site. You’ve outlined some great insights here which I now apply to optimize my sites (I’m not an expert in SEO, btw) . Anyways, what you think do should be the ideal number of global/local monthly searches for a particular keyword (in Google Keyword Tool)? Do you think keyword density is still relevant today? Sorry for the basic questions :>

  57. One variation of this is I’ve been searching for specific brand names in my dataset, where a brand name is for a product that I want to optimize for. This also generates ideas for blog posts. For example, we sell a product called Wobenzym PS. Looking at my KW data, I can see a lot of people have questions about this product, like how much to take, etc. This is good fodder for new blog posts and for FAQs in our product page.

    The only problem with the Top Landing Pages strategy is that all my top pages have not provided or not set next to then, so this tactic is all but useless.

    Unfortunately the dreaded not provided accounts for over 50% of my search traffic (grrrr)

    Thanks for the great advice on SEO. This is the first time I’ve heard of this tactic, but the basics sound like it just might work. Thanks again.

  63. I’m impressed with the amount of time spent on average per visit. It goes all the way up to 8 minutes. That’s something to be proud of. It means that your content is liked. All the SEO tricks in the world doesn’t mean anything if the content isn’t valuable. Keep it up.

    Thx fo the good tips Jason! I must be doing something right when I already did many of these steps before reading your post, except the Excel ones… anyway, I think a great way to revitalize old posts is adding the year, like 2014 Likn Building Strategies, just as an example. Best of luck and success with your projects though all 2014 for everyone :)

    Well, this is so impossible today. Because of ‘not provided’ basically there is no way to learn about those keywords.
    But at the time of writing, it was a great way to increase trafic.

    Jason — thank you for putting together this post. I’m not sure how I missed this post when you published it, but I’m very pleased that I came across it this evening. This past week I’ve been doing some serious thinking on how to take my blog to the next level. Your post has given me several new strategies to implement.

    I love the idea of adding a new word to the meta description to attract additional long tail traffic. It’s very simply, yet I can see that it is also very effective. Thanks again!
