Get 10k Unique Visitors

Are you curious how I got my 1 year old blog, www.JasonFox.me,  10k unique visitors last month?  If that number seems small to you, my hat is off.  But if that seems like a good goal for your companies website then I will share some details.

Where Do the Unique Visitors Come From?

1.  I DO NOT use any PPC.  No Google Adsense, No Bing adCenter, No Yahoo.  None.

2.  100% of my traffic is from the Search Engines and Social Media.

3.  The majority of my traffic comes from my 10 most popular blog posts.

 

Evaluating the Analytical Data

1.  Over 10k Unique Visitors –  That means that over 10 thousand people came to my website this month that have never been to my website in the past.

2.  There are Significant peaks in the data –  These are the times when I add new content (in my case a blog post) that is well received.

3.  46K Page Views/32K Visitors/10K Unique Visitors –  This tells me that:

    • 22K readers decided that they would re visit my website
    • Of those 32K visitors they read an average of 1.5 pages.  Meaning that the first page was good enough to read  a second 50% of the time.

4.  My unique visitors are down 5k from last month:

    • This is in direct relation to the amount of content that I have been adding.
    • I created only 5 new blog posts the last 30 days.
    • I generally create 10-12 blog posts every 30 days.

 

10 Steps I Use to Get 10K Unique Visitors

In order of importance:

1.  New Content a Minimum of 1 time a week

    • I use my blog to create new content 5-15 times every month.
    • **VERY IMPORTANT**  My content is original and teaches something, and each Blog post is SEO Optimized.

2.  SEO Campaign

    • My site is SEO Optimized
    • I exchange links with quality websites
    • I incorporate a Social Sharing strategy

3.  Email Newsletter

    • I capture visitors email address and send them a weekly email to remind them to revisit my website.

4.  Social Media Syndication

    • I use a service to share my new content on 40 different websites

5.  Twitter Profile

    • I use Buffer App to post my new content to Twitter 10 times

6. Linkedin Group

7.  Pinterest Page

8.  Google + Profile

10.  Facebook Fan Page

 It is a simple, but effective recipe.

    Really great post Jason. Can’t wait to try out these. I’m really interested about step #4. Can you tell me which service you use for that? Thanks!

    Great post Jason. This is my first time here, found you through LinkedIn. Obviously your strategy is working. I use onlywire.com too. Love that site. What is your process for exchanging links with other websites? Is that through a group, software, emailing them personally?

    • says

      Johnny, Thank you. I love Linkedin.

      Traditional 2 way link exchanges do not really work anymore, so I use content. The idea being that if I create really good content then people will want to link to it. Then if I generate enough traffic, then a higher number of people will want to link to it.

      I also do guest posting, and blog commenting.

    Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds
    me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this.
    I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain
    he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

We would love to hear from you...
