In this article I am going to write about a traffic building strategy that you can use, using primarily articles as the traffic source Then I will describe how you can get more exposure for your articles by sharing them on social media.
Getting Traffic Using Articles Only.
First let us look at this premise, that you are using articles only to get traffic to your website. If this is the case then you will need a plan to write a certain number of articles per day. Let us say that you would like one hundred visitors per day going through to your website.
Here is what you can do, write twenty articles and publish them on an article submission website. After a week or so, after the articles are published, you will begin to see traffic coming through to your website. Now, I am going to simplify this so you will easily understand how you can apply it to your articles. If, after one month, you are getting on average, two clicks to your website per day from each article, that would be a total of forty people. The goal is to get one hundred visitors, right? Well, the answer to get more traffic is of course to write more articles. But, is that all you can do to increase your traffic?
This time I would like you to think of those articles as content that can be shared!
It’s a very simple idea but, one that sometimes goes straight over the top of a lot of article writers heads. Share your work on social media sites like Facebook.
You have a few choices, but let us stick with one method of sharing. All you need to do is write a short summary for each of your articles and leave a link to the article at the end of your summary. Then post those summaries on your social media sites. Those posts will be seen by your followers on their timeline, much the same as the posts you see on your timeline by the pages that you are following.
Sharing your articles on your social media sites may get you more article views and could help in reaching your goal of one hundred clicks to your website each day.
Once again, after one month you can begin to track your results and calculate how many website clicks you are getting per article. Then it’s a case of deciding whether you want to write more articles and share those also.
