The 8 Most Proven 2014 Internet Marketing Strategies to Get You Web Traffic and Increased SEO Rankings
1. Clickable Links: Studs v. Duds
- The links you build need to get clicked on, not just posted. If you create links in dead zones…Google will notice. Your SEO will sky rocket if you join smart groups in LinkedIn to share your blog, have a few local profile links with 5+ reviews and answer people’s questions in forums with user activity. A good answer will always get a click on your profile link back to your site.
2. Trade Social Media Followers: How to get social media postings from other users? Find other social media outlets and say I will post your article to my Facebook feed if you post mine to yours. You can repeat this process to a few loyal partners and reach a few thousand new potential users in a hurry.
3. Link Your Content to Google+

4. Get Relevant Web Traffic & Returning Internet Users
- It doesn’t matter if your website is ranked if you are a smart marketer. Get relevant traffic from any form of internet including email marketing, Google Adwords and Suggested Ad-Articles. If your website provides useful and user benefit, users will use your website again and search engines and the web will notice.
- Email Marketing: A great tool for email marketing is Constant Contact. Sometimes Constant Contact can limit your email activity so try Results Mail for a small fee a month. The templates are simple to use and lists are easy to upload.
- Why Old School Marketing Helps with Overall Rankings? Part of Google’s algorithm takes into account a user’s traffic pattern and the amount of different IP Addresses being used. Google tracks traffic behavior on sites and rewards sites where the bounce rate is low. The bounce rate is when customers are on your site and don’t bounce to another site quickly without clicking on another link to find out more.
- Google Adwords: By getting users to your site makes sure Google is constantly indexing your website. It is not a big part of the SEO puzzle, but Google is forced to pay attention to your site.
