Targeted traffic is one if the best incoming traffic that you can have for your blog. This type of traffic takes time to build up but when you put out the hard work to get it, your blog will be more successful.
Targeted traffic can be summed up as visitors who come to your website because your content appeals to their needs. Having contents that is targeted to a particular set of people will attract them to your blog like bees to honey, and in time they will become loyal readers and subscribers.
How To Get Targeted Traffic
One of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your blog is from other blogs related to your blog. Blogs which shares the same niche as yours are perfect for getting targeted traffic. Blogs in your niche which are higher with traffic is makes it even easier.
Here are 3 great ways to get targeted traffic from other blogs:
– Blog Commenting
– Guest Posting
– Buy Ads On That Blog (if the owner sells)
Forums are normally filled with people engaging in discussions and helping each other out. Why not join in the discussion as well… This is also a great place to capture some targeted traffic for your blog. When you sign up to a forum, make sure that you follow the rules of the forum, add you link with a short description about your blog and posts as much as possible on the forum. This was you will get lots of traffic and with all that posting that you are doing, this will help to build up backlinks for your blog as well.
In order to get targeted traffic from search engines you have to make sure that you use the right keywords which best describes your blog. Not only that, you have to use keywords on each article that you write for your blog.
When using keywords it’s always best to use long-tailed keywords. This means instead of using one word, you can use a phrase.
For Example: You write an article about Google Adsense. You don’t want to just use the words Google and then Adsense. You want to use words such as, how to increase Google Adsense revenue.
Think about what people would type in search engines and use those phrases as keywords.
I love social medial and social bookmarking sites. Why? Because they are full of people searching for everything including your blog. That’s why.
I have gotten lots of traffic using social media sites and I am going to continue using it. One of my favorite social media sites to use is Twitter. It’s so easy to tweet a site link and if you have lots of followers then you can attract them to your blog. You can also use hashtags to kinda describe your article and this will only result in more traffic.
Why Is Targeted Traffic Important
When you target a set of people who comes to your blog, most of the times these are the ones that reads and comment on our articles. These people who are targeted to our blog will also take the time to go through your archives, search for other articles, take the time out to read and leave kind comments on what they have read.
To keep these kind of people coming back to your blog you have to make sure that you respect them and also to make a reply on their comment, thanking them for leaving such comments. This will let them know that you as the site owner care about them.
The best ways to make sales on affiliate products is if you have a high number of targeted traffic coming to your blog. Have a product of interest, explain how you have used this product to make your blog better or how it has personally helped you, then making a few sales on this particular product won’t be so hard.
People who you target with your blog is normally the ones who will subscribe to our blog. They want to follow and keep up to date on what you are writing about. When they come to your blog it’s like you don’t have to ask them or force them to subscribe to your blog. They are the ones that will hit the subscribe button and can’t wait for your next update. So be sure to make your RSS button or email for visible for them to see.
Without people who are really interested in our blogs, which is the targeted traffic, sometimes it wouldn’t make sense that we continue to blog. When you find people who take keen interest in your blog it motivates us to continue blogging. This is what drives me to blog knowing that you, my loyal visitors, have interest in my blog.
