Traffic Hacking: How to Find (and Focus on) Your Top Sources of Web Traffic

Traffic Hacking - How to Find Your Best Source of Web TrafficWe all understand the importance of traffic generation.

The problem?

There are so many different sources of traffic that it’s hard to know what’s worth your time and what isn’t.

Fortunately, there is a quick fix to this problem.

All you have to do is use a few tools and apply a specific mindset to your traffic generation efforts. Then you can easily identify the most effective promotional tools for your authority site and/or Kindle books.

It’s been over a year since I started the Authority Internet Business Case Study.  During this time, I’ve experimented with a variety of traffic sources to the site (DGH).  What have I learned?  There are only a handful of tactics that actually work (for me.)

In this post, I’m going to reveal a seven-step plan for finding your top sources of traffic and explain what to do when you identify them.

10 Ways to Use Google Analytics to Increase Web Traffic

What’s the secret to getting more web traffic?

Is it promoting your site in a variety of places?

Or is it maximizing one source of traffic?

I think it’s neither.

My web traffic philosophy is simple:

“Find what’s working and do more of that!” (Tweet This)

It’s a straightforward strategy.  You concentrate on the traffic strategies that are working and ignore the rest.  It’s like that famous expression: “Starve the Ponies, Feed the Stallions.”

So you might wonder: How do find out what’s working?

Easy… you install and monitor Google Analytics on your site.

In my opinion, Google Analytics is the best tool for monitoring your traffic stats.  Unfortunately not many people know where to get started.  In this post, I’ll show ten ways to use Google Analytics to increase your web traffic:

5 Ways Google Plus can Help Blogging Affiliate Marketing

Today’s guest post is really timely.  In the last week, I’ve signed up for the new Google Plus service.  But I’m not really sure what it is and how to use it.  Fortunately Peter Mugi does a great job of explaining how to use this site…

Google Plus (Google+) is Google’s latest attempt at social network.  It has become a hot talk on the internet (it accounted for 35% of tweeted news links in the week immediately after it’s launch in June 2011).

I like Google+ not only because it’s a great social networking service, but also since it’s an amazingly powerful tool for all bloggers and affiliate marketers.  In just a few days, it boosted the visitor count of one of my blogs and assisted me to prepare a niche marketing campaign I’m going to launch soon.

In this article I’ll show you all bloggers and affiliate marketers how you could benefit from Google+.  Before I introduce it, let’s have a look at some solid data.

11 Article Marketing Lessons YOU can Learn from an Account with 2,338,985 Views

Do you use ezine-articles a major part of your article marketing strategies?  If so, you’ll want to pay close attention to this po

Today, I’m going to reveal 11 lessons from an article marketing account that has over 2,338,985 Views.  I learned these the hard way – By making LOTS of mistakes!

So read on to see how to take your ezine articles to the next level.  (Also keep an eye out for the free article template hidden somewhere in this post.)


POST PANDA NOTE:  Since this article was written the Google “Panda” and “Scrapper” have come and gone.  6 months have nearly come and gone since these updates.  This has been enough time to prove that these article marketing strategies do, in fact, still work.

Let’s be honest.  The days of writing a single ezine-article and having it rank #1 for competitive keywords are long gone.  This is as much due to increased competition as the Google updates.  But article marketing is far from dead.

The Article Marketing Strategies in this post have been changed (where needed) to better match the Post-Panda article marketing world.
