Growing A New Website to 100,000+ Organic Visitors Per Month In Less Than 1 Year

This is a case study on how I built a website that receives over 100,000 visitors per month, in less than 1 year, without spending $1 on advertising.

This was done 100% through SEO and content strategy.

Before we dive in, allow me to clarify a few things:

  1. The website reached over 100,000 visitors in 9 months.
  2. This was a new domain, registered just a couple months before launch.
  3. This was done in a language I do not read nor speak (Japanese).
  4. Japanese is a non-roman character language, making it nearly impossible to use most of the popular SEO tools.
The purpose of this post is to walk you through precisely how my team and I reached this milestone, the approach we took, and show how technical SEO combined with content strategy can deliver serious results.

Key Drivers of Traffic Growth

There were a few key elements that led to the widespread and sustained growth of the project, these range from commonsense to technical, but come down to three main focus areas:

  • Math – we took a mathematical approach to designing an evaluation model that would allow us to gauge opportunities based on their potential returns. Ultimately this led to the creation of what we now call our keyword opportunity evaluation, which is a financial model that measures the approximate output (traffic) based on a finite set of inputs, including elements like average DA, number of links / linking domains, age of site, content footprint, etc.
  • Analysis – Using our newly built algorithm we got to testing, creating websites to test content patterns and architecture. We were quick to declare defeat within verticals without traction, and paid close attention to where the traffic was growing the most. The algorithm started to take shape and after roughly 3 months was able to identify within an order of magnitude the amount of traffic we could acquire for a given set of costs.
  • Pumpkin Hacking – This is a term that I came across (thank you Peter Da Vanzo) that seems to describe exactly what we did to continue to grow our traffic by double and even triple digits, month after month. The core concept is simple; focus resources on building what works. What this meant for us was paying attention to the search verticals and content that received the most traffic, most comments, most social shares, and being quick to cut the cord on traffic that didn’t perform.

First Month After Launch

With zero promotion and no advertising, we had a decent first month, bringing in over 2,000 visitors. This was mostly due to our pre-launch strategy – which I’ll explain more later in this post.

After only 9 months we were 3 months ahead of schedule to pass 100,000 visitors with no signs of slowing down.

As you can see in the screenshot above, organic search drives the most significant portion of our traffic. Referral traffic is almost entirely from blogs and industry publications, and campaigns is representative of the ads that we place, only on our website, to test different language and call to actions to drive conversions.

Building a Keyword Database

This is an obvious no-brainer for all SEO’s, however, unlike most search campaigns – this was a big keyword database, to the tune of 50,000 keywords.

The main idea here was leave no stone un-turned. Since we were of the mind to test everything and let the performance metrics dictate where to allocate resources, we had to get creative with query combinations.

We first went through all of our target search verticals, as dictated by our chosen go-to-market categories, which I think was roughly 19 to start. The next step was to identify the top 100 highest search volume terms within those verticals and scrape the top 100 URL’s that were currently ranking.

From here we began what started out as an exhaustive process of evaluating the opportunities for each keyword, and then aggregating opportunities to discern which categories we needed to focus on to grow traffic.

Essentially we targeted the low-hanging fruit; keywords identified by our model that could generate a minimum level of traffic  in 3 months or less, with a minimum investment in content development.

I watched (obsessively) which phrases and topics generated the most traffic.

As soon as a topic began to grow legs, we would focus additional keyword research on finding concepts and phrases that were both complimentary and contextually relevant.

Designing a Content Strategy

This is the single hardest part of any content-focused website or project.

The key to success on this particular project was taking a page out of Jeff Bezos’ book, and becoming obsessed with our customers.

We not only embarked on an aggressive a/b testing schedule, but we constantly reached out to our users for feedback.

We asked tough questions, ranging from what users’ liked and disliked (colors, fonts, and layouts) but also the specific components of the website they found to be less than ideal or even ‘sub-par.’

We took the responses seriously, making changes as they came in, trying to take something constructive from every piece of feedback, and pushing as many as 10 deployments a week.

It started to work.

Once we saw the needle begin to move on our user engagement metrics; time on site, pages per visit, and direct or branded traffic, we moved onto the next phase of our strategy; analyzing our audience.

Targeting the right audience is so much harder than it sounds.

I can honestly say from the experience of working on this project it is almost never as it seems. We began with targeting a very large segment of users (remember that time I talked about a keyword database of over 50,000 keywords?) but after a few months it turned out our largest (and most active) users were finding us from only a handful of targeted categories.

Information Architecture with SEO in Mind

Please allow me to preface this by saying that I am bias; in my opinion the architecture of a website is critical to achieving SEO success.

My largest successful SEO projects have come due to a variety of factors, but tend to come down to 3 core components of architecture:

  • It’s Scalable
  • It’s Crawlable
  • It’s Tiered

Scalable architecture is an obvious one; you need a system that can grow as large as you want/need it to.

Crawlable is nothing new to anyone in SEO; this simply means that the structure of our pages allowed for all of the most important content to quickly and easily be crawled and indexed by search engine robots. It actually sounds easier than it is… ensuring that the content is rendered (code wise) in the most ideal format for robots to parse takes more consideration than just laying out your div’s to properly render your designs.

To do this properly you need to make sure all of your code is in the right place, and more so, check how each crawler sees your page.

Take every opportunity to DRY out your code as much as possible, remember modern code is designed to cascade for a reason.

Information tiering… is a concept I have long-time preached to anyone who has ever talked with me, at length, about SEO. It means that your URL architecture should be built in a way so authority flows upwards through your directories.

For example, if I wanted to build authority around a core concept, I would focus my domain on that concept. If I then wanted to build relevance around specific locations for that concept, I would structure my URL’s so that all relevant content for that location fed upwards to a location specific directory.

So let’s say I had an SEO consulting firm with locations in several cities across the U.S., I would design an architecture that would allow for location-specific information to feed upwards through my directories.

So something like The specific location content could be the team, any value-add competencies, anything geo-specific that was relevant to operations at that location, flowing relational authority upwards to the parent directory of /Philadelphia/.

Link in sub-directories can feed authority to parent directories.

A perfect example of this is local sitelinks for popular categories; tertiary directories with the most links and content which cause their upstream sub-directories to receive authority translating into higher rankings and local sitelinks.

Launch Before The Launch

The easiest way to ensure a successful product or website launch is to launch before you actually launch.

What I mean is to build your prospect list well in advance of pulling the trigger to go live.

John Doherty wrote a great post on ProBlogger that talks about the power of leveraging list-building pre-launch pages. By building a list of users before publishing your full website you are essentially guaranteeing traffic immediately upon launch.

Our pre-launch is how we were able to generate over 2,000 visitors within the first 30 days of taking the website live.

Since our platform is not built on WordPress we didn’t get to use any of the fancy plugins available, and instead created a basic one-page site that allowed visitors to convert the same way the full website would support, just on a much smaller scale.

The most important part of our pre-launch page was that it not only supported social sharing, but was able to track and aggregate shares to give active users more points; gamification is cool.

Some of the major benefits of a well planned pre-launch are:

  • Your website is already being crawled and indexed by major search engines.
  • You begin building your user base and audience.
  • You can gain invaluable feedback while it’s still easy to make changes.

Choosing a Platform

Let me start by saying not all platforms are created equal.

It’s also worth sharing that it is not always better to build versus buy, as there are a lot of smart people building a lot of slick content platforms.

However, we chose to build.

Once we had laid out all of the project requirements, including URL architecture, conversion funnels, user permissioning, design templating, and localization, it became clear that in order to get exactly what we needed – we were going to have to build it ourselves.

One major benefit of building is we were able to design a system that would support both our internal and external processes right out of the gate. This also meant it was going to take a lot more time and a shitload more money to bring our website to market.

Hosting & Evolution

This is a known but rarely talked about factor – hosting infrastructure is critical.

Once we were ready for public launch we setup chose a reasonably affordable VPS provider with what seemed like more than enough memory, and it was at first.

By month 4 it was clear we were going to have to make some changes; load times began to bloat and large content pages were timing out. We beefed up the space and quadrupled the memory, which solved the problem temporarily until…

We got some press.

Traffic June 2012

Click to Enlarge

On June 5th we were featured by one of the largest news publications in the world. We were able to handle almost 40,000 visits before out VPS crashed, hard.

It was that week we made the move to localized cloud hosting from Amazon Web Services.

We haven’t crashed since.

The End Result

Not really the end result since this project is still enjoying a healthy and fruitful life, but after 9 months of careful planning, remaining flexible to the marketplace, and nurturing our most valued asset; our users, we surpassed our milestone of 100,000 visitors.

Great, But Is It Repeatable?

In case you weren’t already thinking it, you are now.

The answer is Yes.

Taking what we learned and applying the concept of pumpkin hacking, we started a new blog at the end of July 2012 to test the transferability of our strategy, and here were the results:

In the first 12 days we had over 17,000 visitors. In the first full month, we had over 50,000 unique visitors coming to the website over 100,000 times (see below).

And it didn’t slow down…

By the end of the 3rd month we were receiving over 100,000 unique visitors, and over 200,000 visits.

Benchmark And Grow

One of the best ways to get started on your path to increasing your site’s organic traffic is to understand how much traffic potential is within your vertical, and to benchmark against it.

Start by looking at the top 5 sites that rank for the big head terms you’re targeting, and get a read on their traffic. To do this I like to use’s web traffic tool. It provides a good relative measure of a website’s traffic, sources, and some detailed data on where this traffic is coming from – and best of all, it’s free!


This is very possible.

With careful planning, an SEO focused content strategy, and an understanding of the power of information architecture – you can grow a new website to over 100,000 organic visitors per month in less than 1 year. Following this case study I also wrote about lead generation using contests.

    Incredible Nick.. wow

    I like the Pumpking hacking idea, makes sense.

    I did some googling and there are 120,000 million japanese speaking people. So 100,000 unique visitors is a mean feat! Congrats!!


      It is really amazing what you have achieved. I know it is possible to drive a lot of traffic using deals for example, but it is not that high in targeted traffic. I just guess a service like that (SEO only) would costs tens of thousands of dollars, right?

      • Nick

        Unfortunately it would probably be pretty expensive to drive sustainable, qualified traffic to a deals site. I imagine it would take a pretty serious off-site effort as well as a lot of targeted content.

      • roy christian

        Hey Roy – In short, yes. It’s going to take time from people with the right capabilities.

    Yeah pumpkin hacking is something I now use to drive strategy on all of my projects, not just websites; the core idea is really effective and forces focus.

    We’re actually at 400,000+ per month between the 2 websites now and we have some pretty high goals :)

    Very impressive Nick. Very cool to hear your thoughts relating to IA and making improvements to code’s impact on SEO. Something I’ve heard from several people in the industry that I respect greatly. As always, great post!

  • Jamie Farrelly

    Only one word for this: amazing.

    Just out of interest, how much content did you put on the site each week etc?

    Well done by the way!

  • Nick

    John-Henry – Thank you very much for the compliments :) The site has been consistently growing at a decent clip between 20-30% month over month, so if this trend continues I anticipate we will be nearing the 500,000 mark come May 2013.

    Rico – Sorry man, not trying to create any additional competitors as I’m already competing with some pretty heavy hitters :)

    Felix – That’s great to hear, what would you say is the greatest driver(s) of your growth?

    Arwin – Great – that’s the whole point! Before and after, as we launched January 1, 2012. The first major update on the Japanese index was July 18th, and we fared just fine, launching our blog the very next day.

    Devin – Thanks a lot man, IA is still not paid the attention it deserves in this industry (as is the case with testing :/)

    Jamie – Thank you. Great question. At first we were creating roughly 10 pieces of content per day and these ranged from small to large pieces both as posts and pages. As of month 8 we stopped creating content and let the users run the show, all we’re doing now is participating and moderating the discussions.

  • Alessio

    I love this post, because you show real stuff. and congrats BTW!

      Haha that’s a tall compliment – thanks so much man

  • Kenichi Suzuki

    100,000+ organic visits per month for a new site is wonderful. I understand you’ve achieved a great result because I’m a Japanese webmaster. :)

    • Nick

      Thank you Kenichi – What is your website (if you don’t mind me asking…)

  • David Cohen

    Two things that are extremely impressive about this post: 1. That you shared the actual data and not something nebulous. 2. That you made this happen for a site in a language you don’t speak.

    There’s so much marketing win here. How many people would get an idea like this but never follow through because of the high risk of failure of launching a site in a foreign language and for an intricate culture?

    Very happy for you, Nick. This is inspiring stuff.

    • Nick

      Thanks David – I deliberated on this post for a while; wasn’t sure if it was worth sharing these details (if they would be of interest) or how it would be received, so it’s nice to see people appreciate the time it took to lay this all out.

      I think that’s exactly why this opportunity worked out relatively well, a lot of SEO’s are simply afraid of other languages, especially ones they don’t speak. Thanks for the comment

  • Nick

    Nathaniel – Thanks man, glad you enjoyed it.

    Climax – (feels weird to type that :)) That would be insane, what a high compliment – thank you.

    Kenichi – D?mo arigat?

    David – Thanks David. That’s the whole mission of this website and my posts, to share real data from real experiences – not pie in the sky BS and details that are so abstract that no one can glean any value from them. Where there’s risk there’s reward :)

      • winston

        This is an incredible case study into the intersection between technical/strategic SEO and content marketing strategy. Is the Japanese SEO market less developed than English language optimisation? I’m just wondering the extent to which under-optimised keyword competition played a role in being able to dominate manly keyword verticals that are already saturated in English language markets?

      • Nick

        Thanks Winston. To answer your question, in my experience, yes. Japan is roughly 4 to 5 years behind the rest of the world in terms of SEO. It’s particularly amazing because they are leading the technological revolution in so many other ways; computer processors, mobile devices, etc. it’s strange to think about them as being behind when it comes to organic search. It definitely played a role, and more so, the specific verticals we targeted are very popular within the culture.

      • Peter

        Very interesting. I could go to Japan and work as a SEO specialist.
        I had heard, the people in Japan earn more money than in the other country.
        Unfortunately I don’t speak Japanese!

  • Clint

    You claimed you did not spend any money advertising.

    SEO is advertising, so every piece of content had a cost, links have a cost.

    To say you grew to 100k for free is inaccurate.

    So give us a cost, and let’s see what it’s earned, were there profits?

    Traffic for traffics sake is not indicative of success.

    • Nick

      Hey Clint – Thanks for the comment.

      I use the word advertising in the traditional sense of it’s meaning; paid media vs. earned media. We did not spend $1 on paid media.

      At no point in my post did I ever say anything was done for free, because that would be completely inaccurate.

      Also, to explain my distinction in a bit of detail, rankings in terms of SEO are earned – making it very different from paying a specific price to appear in front of your target audience, which would include AdWords, sponsorships, display, etc.

      We are not successful because we have traffic, we are successful because we have grown a community of users, and are the largest website within our content vertical within Japan.

  • Bibiano Wenceslao

    Solid post, Nick. Love the real world data, and thanks a lot for the tips (just in time for a new project). Just curious, how many are you in the team, and what are each individual’s role?

  • Nick

    Hey Bibiano – Nice to see you again :)

    When we were in production mode (first 6 months) we scaled up to 12 FTE’s and a handful of contractors. The roles were back-end developer, front-end developer, social media manager, community manager, keyword analyst, and the rest were writers and translators.

    Currently we’re operating with a team of 5 including myself, and this project is not my full-time gig.

  • Bibiano Wenceslao

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for the response. I’ve been just lurking around for quite a while and barely participates in discussions. 😀

    I was amazed at how you and your team achieved such a feat with rapidly growing a website from the ground up. I recently just started working on a small eCommerce site (I realized 1k+ product pages is considered small in the eCommerce world), but just by myself and not as a team. I basically have to rework the whole site structure and each product page (starting with ones that are already ranking well and those that converts the most), create new pages to target relevant keywords not being focused on before, among other tasks. From your response, I just realized it definitely would be easier if I’d outsource some tasks or get someone in to help (this is the 1st eCommerce site I’ve ever worked on). I’ve been educating the client about the process to avoid being nagged about why it takes some time to get the rankings kicking in.

    Quick question about information architecture: Say the site I’m working on is on the designer clothing line, and there’s higher search volume for the designer names than product types (suits, gowns, etc.), how should the structure (URL format would be the same as well) go?

    A. Homepage > Designer > Product Type > Product Model
    B. Homepage > Product Type > Designer > Product Model
    C. Homepage > Designer > Product Model (then create separate pages focusing on product types, and linking to relevant product model pages)
    D. Homepage > Product Type > Product Model (then create separate pages focusing on designer names, and linking to relevant product model pages)

    I’m going with C, but I could be wrong. It would be awesome and helpful to know your thoughts on this. :)

  • Naren

    Great post, Nick!
    Just two questions:
    Did you create all the content or did you have some user-generated content areas (like a forum)?
    Do you think this could be repeatable for ANY type of website (a small e-commerce site)?

  • Geff500

    nice way to do it

  • Nick

    Bibiano – Congratulations on your first eCommere site, they are a lot of fun. Without knowing any of the specifics of your audience and closest competitors it’s hard t say, but if I had to choose from one of your options I would also go with C, except possibly change product model to product name (unless that’s what you meant >.<) Naren – Thanks. There were UGC areas, especially since this website had a large community focus, a lot of content came from the users interactions with each other, especially comments. Hmm, repeatable for any website… I wish I could say yes, but probably not. I think it is going to depend greatly on the search vertical(s) and the purpose of the website.

    • Greg


      I have classifieds website which has 2.1 million indexed pages in google, bu I am gettimg very low organic traffic. The thing is that mu site does not have a specific keyword to rank for. I have done a lot of onpage optimization, and I get 75% woorank score when I run a test. I have done link building, I jave around 4000 links showing in webmaster tools, I am really lost when I want to think about what I next to improve my organic traffic. What would you recommend? Thanks!

      • Nick

        Hey Greg –

        It sounds like you may have spread a bit too thin, and there’s a good chance that the focus on your pages is not tight enough enough on specific keywords. To your point “my site does not have a specific keyword to rank for,” what are you you using to drive your on-page optimization? Remember, each page should have a specific set of keyword targets and *only* that page should be targeting them, otherwise you are competing against yourself.

  • Mike Patch

    Awesome read, and I’m a little jealious -lol. It took me 3 years to reach that the same level of 100K

    I wanted to ask you about your hosting. I am using a VPS, and also had a crash with a viral article on Reddit. I’m paying about $110 a month for a hosting plan that is on the tipping point again and I need smarter opions. The reason I went to the VPS was mainly for the IP address. With claims that having a single IP address rather than a shared IP with thousands of others sites being far greater for a websites SEO, I took the plunge. -but have regrets

    Would you reccomend Amazon Web Services? Can you get a self hosted plan? Also.. what are your thoughts to a sharred IP vs. self hosted IP address, does the SEO factor hold value?


    • Nick

      Hey Mike – Thanks for the compliments and congrats on reaching this milestone!

      I personally have had a great experience with AWS, specifically their EC2 platform, which allows you to configure an instance based on your needs, and then set bandwidth and memory levels so it scales automatically, duplicating instances as needed. Since switching we have had some large traffic days (30k+ visits) with no problems.

      I’m of the mind that a shared IP address really doesn’t provide much benefit in terms of SEO. Matt Cutts made a statement on his blog back in 2006 affirming an earlier statement by Craig Silverman (Google’s Director of Technology) in 2003 saying:

      Actually, Google handles virtually hosted domains and their links just the same as domains on unique IP addresses.

      I hope that’s helpful :)

  • Jonathan

    Building a site that gets 100k visits/month within a year is immense.

    I don’t think this blog post really goes further than scratching the surface though.

    Based on the stats above, 10 pieces of content per day over 8 months. Assuming a working week of 5 days, that’s 200 pieces per month. So 1600 pages/posts by the end of 8 months.

    100k visits, means that each page gets on average 62.5 visits per month. When you break it down like that it doesn’t sound as good to me?

    Assuming I did the same but only created 1 piece of content of day, I’d have 160 by the end of 9 months and I’d be getting 10,000 hits per month. Could I write a case study

    There’s a lot of talk about feedback, low hanging fruit, maths, pumpkins. But all I get from this is, churn out enough content, copy what works and the visits will come.

    Do you think this could be replicated with less content. Or is the strategy fully quantity of content dependent? 10 pieces of content a day, with any sort of quality, isn’t attainable for the vast majority, financially or just the niche in particular.

    • Nick

      Hey Jonathan – Thanks, I think?

      So you’re right about relative visits per page per month, however, I’m not sure your logic holds up in terms of projections… Content and traffic do not have a linear correlation, i.e. content does not imply traffic.

      More so, content certainly does not imply rankings. We were able to generate our traffic through achieving high organic search ranking for very competitive terms, that had a stable range of monthly search volume.

      Lastly, if you read the last section ‘Great, But is it Repeatable,’ this specifically addresses how we were able to re-use our strategy to get to 100,000+ visitors per month in only 45 days, with something like 15 pieces of content.

    I’m sorry, but this looks like a fake.
    If you look at the “Traffic Sources Overview: the number 4,000 is obviously written over the blue line. This is not as it is in GA. The numbers are in the BG.

    A site with a bounce rate this high is not a well designed site.

    50,000 keywords? And you don’t speak the language?
    How many pages?

    The most telling fact is that the URL is not in evidence.
    The response when questioned about it was
    “Sorry man, not trying to create any additional competitors as I’m already competing with some pretty heavy hitters ”
    This is TOTAL BS.

    Another factor is the author’s website shows little understanding on how SEO works.

      I am mithilesh from Delhi i want to more than more traffic and Facebook likes 50k per day so please given me any idea and contact me by mail id


  • clarke

    @ignorant guy above,

    The traffic sources overview screen is fine. It’s the same way in my reports.

    And, a site a high bounce rate doesn’t mean its not satisfying users and it doesn’t mean it’s not well-designed. A good example is info sites that immediately answer searcher questions. I have one myself and it has 80% regular bounce rate (40% when you set adjusted bounce rate with a 90 second count in GA).

    How’s about you post a case studying on your site since you have such a deep understanding of SEO ?

  • Mackenzie Fogelson

    Hey Nick-

    Love this post. Love the idea of pumpkin hacking, love the testing and allocating of effort to successful content. Love that even though you make this sound like a breeze that you allude to the fact that it wasn’t.

    I’m curious about the social/community aspect of what you guys did. What was your process here? How did you leverage that vehicle?

    Thanks for the inspiration Nick! Congrats on the success?

  • Nick

    Hey Mack –

    Thanks so much – yes I really like the idea and the results of implementation…

    To be honest we didn’t have any formal process for social and community management, but instead listened attentively to our users and engaged in real conversations on our social media channels. We could be doing a much better job of proactive promotion on our social channels, but for now they help us support the mission of the website and keep our users happy.

    I would say the one piece of info worth sharing is the value of monitoring the conversations on your own website. We have been able to pick up on little frustrations and small misunderstandings due to the language used in conversations between our users – which has helped us fix some elements we never would have know about otherwise.


  • Mick

    I’ve enjoyed reading this and take on board many of your points. Coming from a translation/localization background i’m interested to know how you handled Japanese as I can’t see automated translation quality good enough to keep visitors?

    • Nick

      Hey Mick – You are absolutely right, none of our translations were automated; not only does automation reek havoc on the flow of the language, native speakers can spot it a mile away. Instead we used a team of native writers and translators.

    I guess mine is photoshopped too

    The 15k figure is the same way as the screen above. It’s also the same in another analytics account I have access to, and I’m sure it’s the same in yours.

    And why didn’t you use the traffic sources overview in your thorough comparison instead of a shot from the dashboard. It almost looks like you’re using the OLD analytics interface, but I’m certain they decommissioned it for everybody a few months ago that can’t be possible.

    Do what a grown man would do and admit you were wrong.

  • Reg NBS SEO

    I apologize.
    I took the images from older screen shots.
    I see the new interface has changed the way the figures display above the line.

    I still have a problem with the amount of pages, the keywords and the language.
    How can you decipher these metrics if you do not speak the language?

  • Nick

    @Reg NBS –

    What’s your problem with the amount of pages, keywords, or the language?

    The metrics are all in tracking programs (like GA for example) that don’t require any unique knowledge of the language. As for keyword research and content creation; I had a team of native writers and translators, as I have mentioned several times now. Are you really so surprised that technical SEO and content strategy can be translated across different languages?

    Excellent post. I couldn’t agree more about IA as a ranking factor. It just makes sense for robots and humans both.

    I did have a couple of questions.

    You said the site was in Japanese. Did you find that the ratio of (not provided) to provided queries was pretty low in Japan? I assume fewer folks in Japan have Google accounts.

    How would you go about this aggressive growth process on an established site with a high rate of (not provided) keywords? For us, nearly 50% of terms are (not provided). In fact, (not provided) is my top keyword, 38 of the next 40 keywords are brand terms, and the first provided non-brand term sent a statistically negligible percentage of organic search visits – 0.143%.

    What would be your approach if you were in my shoes?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.

    By the way, I came to this posts via the Moz Top 10 newsletter from

    • Nick

      Hey Justin – Thanks a lot. I’m happy to take a go at your questions.

      Yes and no… I realize that’s not very helpful :/ It’s definitely lower, but it’s still pretty high – somewhere in the 10% range.

      Well, I guess that depends… are you at nearly 50% after taking all of the steps to extract and associate as much of that (not provided) data with at least phrases or topics as possible? If so, then I can see where this gets tough.

      I would look at the pages (URL’s) receiving the most entrances from organic search and use some educated guessing to at least attempt to discern which family of ideas the keywords were related to. If you can at least get a sense of the core topics on your pages you may not know the exact search phrase, but you at least know what it was in relation to. I understand this doesn’t let you focus growing query specific traffic, but at least you know which concepts are working and can build more semantically related content.

      I hope that’s at least helpful?

  • The profit guy


    Enjoyed your post and want to know if you were able to make money off of this such as advertising or were you trying to sell a product?

    The bounce rate is high and so I figure it wasn’t to sell a product, correct me if I am wrong.

    What was the total estimated traffic of the final amount of keywords that you picked. I assume that some industries or keywords would never get the traffic that you got.

    • Nick


      Yes we do have an ad model, currently no products.

      Total estimated traffic for our target keywords was very high, in the millions of queries per month range. I don’t know if that is necessarily true, if you are talking specifically about head terms for transactional queries – yes, probably. But if you venture into both navigational and informational queries you should be able to find very high search volume in most verticals.

  • Justin Brock

    I would eat a worm for 10%. Maybe five worms.

    I have a pretty good guess at the themes. I also have matched search queries from Google ppc, which is helpful.

    The really challenging part is attribution. We’re a product company and are evaluating SEO/PPC efforts by sales volume and dollars. I can show organic as a source, but not much else.

    Do you have multi-channel funnels, goals, and Ecommerce tracking set up within analytics?

    To say I am blown away with not only your post but your effort to create the astounding results would be the understatement of the year. Fantastic job.

    I have so many different questions for you that I am not sure where to begin.

    I am presuming you will be monitoring this and only wanted to contact you privately. You can repost my praise, but I would very much like to talk with you offline.

    I have a long background in website translation and know how to take and increase your ROI on your efforts. You can see from my site that I have the book written, but do not have a plan for it. Maybe we could do something together around that. There is a very large opportunity here, but I just haven’t been able to put my hands around it.

    Also, I am currently working with another company and site that could really use some SEO help. We are in the ultra competitive weight loss segment and are struggling. If you are looking for new clients, I would like to talk about this as well.

    This doesn’t seem to compute.

    The thing that really stood out to me was the content strategy, it seems this is one of the key things that are really needed to generate great results like you have shown. It has really motivated me to have a look at this closer in our own strategies, so thanks for sharing your strategy in so much details. Overall this approach requires heaps of planning and work but if the results are so good, it definitely is worth it… even if we use it on a smaller scale.

  • Alessandro

    Yes all good but in not clear for me, a part the list of the setting web task above,how you ranking the site.

    • Nick

      Hey Alessandro – The site relies heavily on 1) the QDF factor; it acquires a lot of user-generated content for new phone models very quickly and 2) content depth; similar to Google’s “in-depth articles” SERP UI all of the content on the pages continues to build on itself to develop more and more keyword relevance around the topics.

  • Chris Irwin

    Thanks Nick. I do tend to agree that great planning coupled with a bullet proof IA is the base for success. I really like the idea of setting up a couple of pre-launch pages to guarantee traffic at launch! Great post


  • Emrah Omuris

    All I have to say is “well done” to this extremely well written post. I have to say, the fact that you do not want to reveal the website address(es) of neither of your projects is a bit upsetting as I also would like to see whether you have achieved this success with the help of some not-so-recommended SEO practices but I guess we will not know this until you reveal the website. May I dare to say you are trying to hide something?

    Assuming all your activities were “white-hat”, I still thing the fact that you had a “considerable budget” to employ number of people, to pay for a relatively expensive architecture, but more importantly you had the money to develop your own CMS architecture is a step-ahead of many startups, which this post implies to targeting for.

  • Rich Amor

    How to cut the cord on traffic that didn’t perform? Nofollow and noindex the post, or just trash it? Thanks. Your reports amazed me.

  • Nick

    @Russell – Thanks, that’s a big compliment :) I got your email and will follow up this week. Cheers!

    @Greg – That’s a good question. It’s an informational site, so visitors are coming, finding answers to their question(s) and moving on. As for users connecting with one another, the site supports posting from email, so once a conversation is started we found that most of the continuing interaction is made from off the site.

    @Ken – Completely understandable and yes, once the project is a bit more public I plan to write more about it. Thanks.

    @David – Yes! Content strategy and deep keyword research and analysis is are paramount in successful enterprise SEO.

    @Chris – Thanks!

    @Emrah – That is an interesting concept… I guess in my defense I think the Panda / Penguin updates did a pretty good job of wiping out most of the websites using ‘not-so-recommended SEO.’ Yes, in terms of my budget and capabilities for the project you are right – I was very fortunate to have the funding necessary to get the right people and build the right system. This was absolutely a large driver of this success, the CMS in particular. This is how great software is made though right? People realize a need they have, they fix it, and when it works that have something better than what’s out there so if they can, they bring it to market.

    @Rich – Do you mean content that didn’t perform? Once your page is indexed, unless the you feel the concept at large is completely bunk, I would say make the effort to revitalize and improve the information on the page – I would almost never recommend using nofollow or noindex for a piece of public content.

      Oh, Nick.. I’m hit by google dance. How to recover my site?

    For Bibiano… what if you did different IA for the same product pages and then let customers and real world results tell you which works best? Three or four different paths to the same final destination.

    For Nick… Fantastic experiment. It takes balls to tackle the Japanese language. Congrats on your success. I have one quibble with “you can grow a new website to over 100,000 organic visitors per month in less than 1 year.” You can’t grow ANY website to > 100,000 visitors/month. If your site is narrowly focused geographically and by vertical, let’s say “Key West, Florida burger restaurants” the population just will not generate the traffic.

    Hi Nick,

    You have shared a great success story. I’m little bit confuse about Pre Launch. I want to know, how can your site indexed and crawled by search engines in Pre Launch mode? if crawled then what difference between launch and pre launch. I’ve pre launch my site and start link building but restrict search engines to crawl and index my site. Is it right approach or wrong?

    Please help me regarding this.


    • Nick

      Hey John – That’s a great question. We actually built a small app that would support UGC content to be created, shared, and indexed.. allowing us to start getting URL’s indexed and crawled prior to launch. We payed particularly close attention to the architecture of these URL’s knowing full well they would need to support the same structure as the full website upon launch. In my opinion pre-launching with a specific set of pages to begin building relevant keyword authority is always a plus. Thanks for asking :)

      Hey Meghna – To be honest, no, this is not possible in every vertical, but it is possible in a LOT, it take creativity on the content and promotion of the content… it’s not always what you write, but how you position it can go a long way in terms of traction and results.

  • David

    Hi Nick – regarding the child to parent page link authority flow…

    In your Philly page example, on the Philly page iteself do you also have links to Philly Team, Philly Office, Philly etc. (the child pages)?

    I’m curious if the natural, user-friendly links that go both ways (parent to child, child to parent) impact the passing upward of link juice? Or by doing links both ways do we screw up the advantage of the structure you recommend?


    • Nick

      Hey David – awesome question, and not to frustrate you too much; it depends… (I realize that sucks as an answer) so I’ll try to give a bit more of an explanation:

      Underneath the location (Philadelphia) directory I would build out pages for each content set that warrants it’s own page, so as you mentioned, our office, the team, and maybe the neighborhood. I would link to each of these pages from the parent directory, Philadelphia, and then link each of the pages at this level, i.e. /Philadelphia/This-directory-level to one another to send contextual juice between them. Most likely I would not link from these detail pages back to the parent directory beyond any links that may be already within the navigation.

      Does that help at all?

    Not only you did a stupendous work in the article but you have gone the extra mile in answering each comment. WOW! truly incredible.

    I have a question:
    Let’s say the business site is a “Local taxi company”. Could I use a UGC site and how would you use technical SEO combined with content strategy on this type of business model.

    There are many many business owners or entrepreneurs out there with the same question. How to achieve great results with a local business.

    Thank you so much for your expert input and once again congratulations.
    Wish you lots of success with your projects!

    Gustavo J.

    • Nick

      Hola Gustavo – muchas gracias por tu comentario! :)

      UGC is going to be particularly tough for a local business, not to say impossible, but very challenging. The challenge would be finding enough people in a local area to really get them excited about the topics of discussion… if I was running a local business I would try to build content that would help solve my user’s geographically specific problems, so for a taxi company this might be ‘Tips for hailing a cab on Market St.’ or ‘Why you should call cabs in advance on Friday nights in old city,’ etc.

      UGC is not completely out of the realm of possibility, but keeping it hyper-local would be extra tough – perhaps instead build a community around sharing their taxi stories; topics could range from best/worst to funniest/scariest, and any others that your audience could connect to personally. This probably wouldn’t give you the local search engine results you are looking for but would give you a base of users you could tap for feedback. Eventually you may be able to leverage this website to begin ranking for local queries – but it would take some time.

    • Nick

      Hola Gustavo – Muchas gracias! :)

      Hmm that’s an interesting one; one idea off-hand would be to host 3rd party reviews not only of taxi services, but potentially of taxi ‘experiences’ that is location specific; so for a local taxi company in say Philadelphia (where I’m from), as a customer I would want to know which taxi company’s are the fastest, most reliable, had the best drivers, etc. in each neighborhood – as there are going to be some inherent differences.

      So building out content for taxi reviews in old city, versus center city, versus South Philly, etc.

      Reviews go a long LONG way in local business, and are starting to play a major role in local rank signaling.


  • Heather Physioc

    I need to make this part of my regular process instead of just when I happen to think of it or notice a particular keyword being successful: “As soon as a topic began to grow legs, we would focus additional keyword research on finding concepts and phrases that were both complimentary and contextually relevant.” I do it, but I don’t do it nearly consistently enough. I can envision the beautiful web of content now…

    Also, you helped me realize that it’s definitely time for my largest site to upgrade our hosting to something much more powerful. In fact I can’t believe we’ve let it go on so long without something with more gusto. So thanks for that.

    • Nick

      @Heather – Absolutely! That concept really is the DNA behind pumpkin hacking – which is so powerful. Hosting upgrade is also money well spent, especially as page speed is only becoming an increasingly important signaling factor to search engines. Please keep me posted on your progress – would love to know how any changes in your process or management lead to traffic or conversion increases. You’re very welcome :)

  • Michael

    How big is your team? How many writers? I assume you have a local staff who knows which content you want and how you want them to be optimized, etc… the whole SEO knowledge.

    How do you manage to research keyword if you don’t read Japanese? Comparing it character by character? When I read that you’re speak and read no Japanese, I thought you’re into some kind of autoblog. Obviously you don’t.

    • Nick

      Hey Michael – The team is currently 6 people including myself, but at one point I had 5 full-time writers. Yes, all writers were local Japanese and they were managed by my content manager, who is also Japanese (and a very smart guy).

      The process and evaluation model we designed allowed for us to automate much of the initial identification and evaluation process, and the architecture I designed allowed for the site to scale without having to analyze pages on a character by character basis.

      Nope, no auto-blogging here :)

  • Andrew

    Nick – really interesting post… 2 questions:

    1) Can you elaborate / share more about the type of website? You said you’d tested many verticals. Were these related verticals that lived together on the site and you optimized the best ones… OR did you test the verticals and then make the site the focus of the vertical that performed best…

    2) Can you share more about the evaluation model you used?

    • Nick

      Hey Andrew – Thanks for the comment and the questions.

      1) The content is now completely driven by the users. We started out with a shotgun style approach targeting broad categories like travel, health, shopping, food, etc. We then paid very close attention to what engaged out users and drove conversations, making sure to bring more attention and dedicate more content resources to these verticals, i.e. pumpkin hacking. Over time we found that a handful of categories drove the most growth, so we focused on them. We didn’t deprecate the other categories – just slowed the investment of development resources.

      2) That’s a tough one; as this is the special sauce of this project… I can share the approach but not the specific heuristics or weights. The goal here was to develop an evaluation model that let us look at the macro factors for a keyword, starting with the competitive landscape. We paid attention to who the current ranking competitors were, how old/strong were there domains, what did their link profiles look like, including velocity, link diversity ratio, etc. We also looked at things like the size of the market, i.e. how many competing pages, average number of links and linking root domains, and content profiles.

      We took all of this and created a formula that would discount estimated traffic based on a given investment of time and money and a projected SERP rank. This is by no means an exact science, but we were able to dial in our estimates over several months to be able to, within an order of magnitude, project the cost and time it would take to rank for a given keyword. From there we would project the traffic we could acquire and attach this to a valuation, letting us project a return for a specific investment.

    How about one-man-blogs that write content based on experiences with no specific keywords or on a subject that is almost as jaded and popular as porn?
    Is there a way to break trough in such a situation?

    • Nick

      I mean, I’m a one-man-blog, but I focus on specific experiences that I think will help inform or educate my target audience; people interested in search engine optimization…

      Porn is hyper-competitive but also hyper focused… sites out there in the adult vertical that getting the traffic and links are doing it with laser-focused content and keyword strategies. The only advice I have to offer up here is you can’t have a general blog and hope to gain any traction; you need to carve out and take ownership of a specific vertical or micro-vertical.

  • Jop

    Wow, what a post, what a wave of great comments. First of all thanks for this great article. And now my questions :)

    1. what exactly do you mean with “vertical search” without having to reveal your niche. something like this maybe:

    cars -> brands -> car types

    2. You wrote that for the first site you needed 10 articles per day. However, for how long?

    3. Then for your second case study you wrote that you just needed 15 pieces? Do mean in total? If yes, how can this be? I mean how can a site get over 100k visitors with just so less content?
    Probably, I haven’t really understood your strategy :(

    Maybe you could make a more in-depth post about this, or an ebook, I would buy it :)

    Best regards

    • Nick

      Hey Jop –

      Thanks :) Let me try to answer your questions:

      1. Vertical markets are more or less micro-industries that exist within search. So where car’s are an industry, a vertical within automotive could be wheels, tires, car covers, etc. I go into more detail in this post;
      2. We published on average 10 new pieces of content per day for the first 6 months, and then slowed and only published relevant news as it came out
      3. Correct. We took lessons from the first site and crafted 15 pieces of content targeting a sub-set of keywords, published them and immediately saw a large wave of traffic; almost 4,000 visitors the first day. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier comment, volume of content and traffic do not have a linear relationship; one piece of content can created tens of thousands of visitors, it all depends on how you build it and what the targets are.

      Funny you should mention, I’ve started working on a book on information architecture for SEO – as this seems to be an area that I’ve found many struggle with, and yet it is so critical (IMHO) to SEO success.

      Thanks again.

    Hey, an ebook! I read about this silo structuring before. It was a guy with a site called seo2020, maybe you know him. what will be the content of your ebook exactly?

    just a few minutes ago a guy on a forum wanted to know why is not ranking with his ecommerce site although he builts a good amount of backlinks. he told that there are sites on the top spots having no backlinks at all. I guess this has again to do with his site’s structure. I simply told him to copy the site’s structure of the websites in the top positions :)

    Unbelievable! Thanks for your reply but this really knocks my socks off! So, you received the same traffic in a much shorter time with just 15 pieces compared to, ehm, over 1500 articles? I would like to ask you what your basis for this analysis was but I guess this is your secret :)

  • Krisztian

    Great post and case study Nick. Would be very interested to read about more details on your content strategy though. Well done over all.


    I’am truly amazed. Great job, and pumpking hacking rocks! :)

  • Ben


    My site (which is down right now, switching to VPS), is a site that allows users to publish material. Kind of like So let’s say, that I have an article that ranks well for “tea”, brings in about 10% of my traffic. Based on what you said in “Building a Keyword Database”, what would I do with this keyword if anything? Would I build more posts around this keyword?

    Also, how often would you publish new posts and what did you do for back link building?

    • Nick

      Hey Ben –

      That’s a great question, I actually just recently published a post on using a shotgun style approach to keyword research and then drilling down to specific keywords based on contextual relevance.

      Building more content in general around “tea” is a good idea, but not content for content’s sake, each piece should have a specific purpose and it’s own individual keyword targets, one thing you need to worry about when creating lots of similar content is the potential to cannibalize your own rankings.

  • ricky

    this is so awesome…i haven’t seen stats like this this before…

  • Nick

    Hey Ben –

    If you want to grow your organic traffic for items related to ‘tea’ I would suggest finding other high search volume concepts closely related to the topic, such as types of teas, tea leaves, infusers, cultural practices or differences, etc… the idea being to build content containing keywords, and more importantly semantic relationships around the topic of ‘tea,’ with the end goal being to broaden the relational authority your website has for more long-tail keywords.

    Publication frequency is not an exact science, my only advice would be not to publish all at once but instead drip posts out on a daily or weekly basis. Honestly, we didn’t do any link building (but I’m not saying you shouldn’t, and in fact, check out Jon Cooper’s link building course if you are looking for how to get started) but we were able to earn links organically from having genuinely interesting content and an engaged audience.

    How much did this project cost you in time and money? The post is inspiring but I imagine it was expensive…

    • Nick

      Hey Paul –

      That is one of the best questions on here. I’m not going to say it was cheap, but we did get a great piece of tech out of it; an SEO-focused CMS built on a dynamically scalable platform (Ruby on Rails).

      I designed the application architecture and had a colleague of mine do the build, so the development was actually surprisingly cheap. I used a number of external, remote resources managed by a handful of native Japanese content professionals.

      All in all the cost was in the mid 5 figures, but SO worth it.

  • Danilo Petrozzi

    Very nice! The whole analysis is also detailed and definitely useful

    • Nick

      Yes the challenge to do SEO in Japanese was certainly the hardest part, but also the most rewarding.

      Hey Jossef – it all depends on the search vertical, it would be really tough to do in the SEO or link building industries, possible, but tough. A good example of an industry blog creating content at this level is quicksprout.

    I guess I don’t get it, the post was more about stats & vaguely what you did to get the traffic. I would like to know where some of the content you wrote was posted, how many keywords did you focus on at a time in each content article, things like that.
    This is my first visit to this site.

    • Nick

      Hey Kent – All of the content was posted on the new domain that I talk about in the post. Nowhere else.

      There was no specific formula for how many keywords for each piece of content, especially since much of this content was user-generated. If we were seeding a new content topic we would not focus on “including x keywords” as much as making sure we developed a comprehensive description of the topic, which often included keywords directly related to the industry, product, or problem.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Launch Before The Launch is a major points in your article. Actually i didn’t understand this like others point. If possible, please explain easily. It would be great if you could explain more.

    • Nick

      Hey Mahadi – The core concept of a pre-launch is actually pretty simple; to really hit the ground running (especially on a new website) you need to put a lot of time into prepping both content, users, and *buzz* for as soon as you launch.

      And in order to do this you need to actually start “launching” your project before it’s live. One of the easiest and best ways I’ve found to do this is to invite people you trust (who are smart and ideally experienced in the area) to come and give feedback on your site and content before it’s live to the public.

    what the meaning of organic visitor?

    • Nick

      Hey Adi – It means they came to the site naturally, either through search or from a link placed somewhere that was not paid for. The opposite of organic would be coming from a ‘paid channel’ such as an advertisement, banner, sponsorship, etc.

  • San

    What is the bounce rate of the visitors?

    • Nick

      Hey San – It is actually relatively high, averaging around 70%. However, this is not a bad bounce rate, it signifies that visitors are coming to the site, quickly finding an answer to their question, and then moving on (the content is UGC focused on opinions and experiences of specific products and services).


    Great research, I’ll try to implement this on my site.

    • Nick

      From taking a quick look most of the pages are actually *very* thin on content with only 1 or 2 listings. Personally I would try to find ways to combine a lot of the more specific (thinner) category and sub-category listings so they are much more full of content and the site looks more “complete.”

  • Rohit Roy

    Thanks a-lot man, let see if i can get 100k unique visitors in less then 1 year, i like your strategy of pre launch, because if we launch a website with 100 quality pages once created, then Google crawl them at first, because they take time to crawl your website next time.

    • Nick

      Hey Shakira – I would actually recommend against launching a new website with all the content on it from the beginning, and instead focus on a just a handful of strong pages, and then drip out the rest of the content a few days apart to build momentum with your crawl and index rates.

  • Proffer dotca

    Hi Nick,

    What do you think you would change at first glance on my website.

    Targeting a very specific niche and target audience is quite some work!

    • Nick

      Hey Proffer –

      To be perfectly honest, I understand the purpose of the website – posting speeding tickets to potentially get some free advice or legal guidance from paralegals, but I still have no idea what a ‘proffer’ is… I would start with a more simple, plain-language explanation.

      Next, since there is a local element, and people will most likely be searching for legal help and information in their local areas, I would build town/county/zip code level landing pages that will stand a better chance of ranking for local queries.

      Hope that’s helpful :)

      • Proffer dotca

        Thanks for this, it is a reverse bid concept where Paralegals bid whatever there fees is to represent the client.

        But the word “bid” got a lot of negative feedbacks from Paralegals who weren’t keen on cutting each other off to get a client.

        So I changed it to offer/proffer. I need to satisfy both sides.

        I’ve done posters and such locally, and I started a single-tier affiliate program as an incentive to bring in clients with traffic tickets. Getting it off it’s feet sure is tough, lol!

      • Nick

        That’s understandable.. I’ve worked in verticals before where there are specific words that while they are the best from a search and intent perspective, the customers/users are very reluctant to use them due to an industry stigma.

        I still think ‘proffer’ is a bit confusing, would you be able to just use offer?

        Getting the initial traction is always the hardest – what types of content have you been creating and where have you been publishing it?

      Thanks for reading and for your kind comment.

      1. The website I discuss in this post currently has around 17,000 pages, with more than 12,000 being user-generated.
      2. Generally speaking, we are targeting 3 to 5 keywords with our landing pages, which live at 4 levels including category, sub-category, top-lvel topic, and sub-topic.

      For more detailed information on the methodology, and how we actually tripled these results with only only a handful of pages (less than 20), check out my traffic case study on Search Engine Watch.

        Hi nick,

        1 more question i have. It would be great for us if you will answer of my question.

        How many resources are working on that project in SEO?

        I hope, you don’t mind to answer this.

  • Lee Trotman

    Great items from you, man. I’ve read your stuff prior to and you’re simply extremely excellent. I actually like your approach right here, certainly like what you’re stating and the way through which you explain it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to stay it smart.

    I can’t wait to learn far more from you, this is actually a tremendous website.

    • Nick

      Thanks a lot Lee.. lots more to come in 2015!

  • Ian

    I totally agree with you, we all should focus on content strategy, understand the power of information architecture to get a good result.
    Thanks for your great post, Nick, keep it up!!!

    • Nick

    Thanks for your sharing and keep it up, Nick!!!

  • Plexure


    Extremely such a great information. In organic traffic, the content strategy is taking most important role after Google algo updates. The thing is should be make a strategy plan before to start SEO Campaign from this post.

    • Nick

      yes exactly – content planning and keyword targets need to be planned out before you ever start typing a single word.

  • kiara

    nice post…
    i followed some of your strategies and managed to increase traffic to this site


    • Nick

      Haha I LOVE that name, thanks Kiara – glad to hear your finding success.

  • money

    It is really a nice stuff .Sir I want to ask if there is any use of google planner or we can give seo keywords according to what we think is best and suitable.What should be the keyword density and how many SEO keyword we should use for better efficiency

    • Nick

      Density is not really something that exists anymore beyond making sure your not simply *stuffing* keywords into every sentence. The best advice I can give on creating SEO friendly content is to write for your audience first, then look for opportunities to swap out synonyms where they make sense – and just keep your house clean; meaning make sure all of the basic on-page best practices are taken care of.

  • Stephen Howe

    My website is generating increasing amounts of web traffic.
    We recieved 356,000 visits in the last 12 months, and we are getting currently 1 unique visitor every minute.
    It is great we are getting so many visits and that our website is interesting to so many people, but what I want to know is how do I translate these visits into revenue for our company so as we have the money to be able to keep improving it and the information that we provide ?
    Does anyone have any ideas ?

    • Nick

      Congrats on your traffic! That’s great.

      The design of the site is very, very old. I would first consider updating this to make it easier to navigate and more friendly to digest your content. It seems you have a very logical path toward monetization; selling products for a commission or charging a fee for posting items for sale, or taking a commission on items sold…

  • Tahseen

    Very nice post, i am starting with this article thanks

  • Mahi hirani

    Most of this is common sense. However the use of a blog is a big waste of time. We have no blog and are top ranked in all the organice keywords we want. It is better to up date the content of each item on your web site instead of wasting your time on a talk show. I mean come on think about it?????

    • Nick

      A blog is a big waste of time? Your website (proresult) IS a blog is it not?

      I’m also lost on your talk show comment. What?

  • Laura Hamilton

    Very interesting post. You had quite a lot of success. Although, 10 pieces of content per day is a lot! Most bloggers can only produce 1-2 quality posts per week.

    Would think you’d need 2 full time copywriters to get 10 pieces of content per day.

    • Nick

      Hey Laura –

      We had a team of contract writers working on building out relevant content and starting conversations for our target keywords. You are absolutely right – 10 pieces of content per day from 1 person would result in some pretty terrible content.


  • Henry Massingale

    This is very interesting, we are far from 100,000 per month but we are happy with the 10,000 or so that do drop in to our network.
    What is Facebook worth…? Now facebook is worth around $25 Billion Dollars.
    What is Toptentogo worth after 9 years of work….?
    As Topentogo closes in on 100,000 Visitors, we are very happy to share with you,

    At, this is just a small step from our goal as a search provider. A family safe forum where porn is not permitted. The Internet is a public place, and the respect for children will be enforced by us.

    At, this site is being interfaced with over 1 Million internet sites and sales offers. This work is time consuming but the work is in being done. I wish I could share all the that is being done but I all ways like to surprise people.

    Toptentogo’s Social Network, soon this site will be up graded, to handle millions of people. You may ask why I think that this Social Network will grow? I watched the move, “The Social Network”, of how Facebook was created, and the statement of, You Dont Get To 500 Million Friends Without Making A Few Enemies.

    The brain storm of the creation of Ning, and Facebook’s creation is what formatted Toptentogo’s Social Networks tomorrow. The why I know this is true, when I got my hand on Toptentogo.Com, after 9 year of waiting, the internet goal for Toptentogo was completed.

    Toptentogo’s News Network, all internet providers must have a News Network. The key to its growth is to be creative, in your News Reports. Sometimes I lack that ability, but I have stepped away from most of the Social Networks Powered by Ning because I got sick of all the emails that cluttered my life. At Toptentogo, people may only get a email from us once a month or once every 2 weeks.

    People do have their eye on Toptentogo, they see I am not pushing this Network and make no mistake about it Toptentogo will grow because of the respect I give to people by not cramming this Network down their throats as if I have all the world in my hands.

    When This Social Network reaches 10,000 people, we will up grade to handle the millions that will join and will find them self most welcome here.

    As stated before I am a painter by trade, I do home remodeling, and i like doing this type of work. So we brought on line our first company internet site.

    Toptentogo Home Service, we have not started promoting this site, because of the winter, but spring is just around the corner.

    This is just a little update to all and a welcome to all the members and new members to our Network. Have a safe Holiday and a thank you fo being a part of our world at Toptentogo.

    We advertise for people for free and in return they do the same……The goal is not to be bigger or better then the other, but to be as one with.

  • Dan

    Hey Nick,

    Excellent advice there.

    The thing I found most interesting and what many people miss or may not have the budget for is – choosing their own platform and building it themselves. Sometimes URL architecture is so often overlooked as well as conversion funnels as quite rightly pointed out.

    Overall a great article – keep it up!

    • Nick

      Dan you are so, painfully right. The one additional consideration that I like to mention is the idea of “standing on the shoulders of giants” – this has worked fantastically in the past, and Google at this point point has become more wise to these strategies – but to a certain extent parasite pages are still continuing to work for some very high volume and very competitive keywords.

  • Greedy Goddesses

    Do you have any suggestions for adult websites? I know that this realm is a LOT different, but We’ve been playing hell getting traffic, and We update EVERY day!

  • Wahyu

    Hi, Rick. I got many problems to increase visitor. I am confused to apply keyowrd on page and off page i think. And the most factor is how to built article with long or short. How is your suggestion to me? please, teah me. via email.

    • Nick

      Hey Wahyu – I’m just going to assume you mean me (unless there was someone named Rick in the comments that I missed?)

      There’s no silver-bullet for long or short articles, but more so crafting content that’s right for 1) your audience and 2) your content vertical.

  • Aziz Bey

    Hi Nick, I can’t believe i just read every single post on here to date. I am a Record Producer and getting AIR TIME on the Radio is Expensive and Political. I would like to build a UGC platform for releasing Music. Have you seen anything like this? What kind of ideas you think would work for discussions?

    • Nick

      Yes, Soundcloud is as close to UGC for music as I’ve seen.. you may also want to do limited releases on Band Camp <– they have a very nice platform.

  • Crazymela

    This is the best advice, awesome & crazy tricks.. me and my blog is really appreciate you post.

    Thanks :)

  • aziz

    Problem SoundCloud is ok; Bandcamp is pretty cool- But let me be more clear.

    I’m looking to bring the power that Radio has in popularizing a song- to a web platform. In order to do that, I need a platform that has as millions of visitors focused on a few records. Almost as if FB decided to Post a video on all 1 trillion users at the same time. BTW, do you know the online strategy that worked for Artist: PSY?

    • Nick

      Sounds like what you’re looking for is more of a promotion strategy.. I’d start by identifying a set of key influencers in your niche, blogs (both brand and individual), publishers, and indie music distribution networks (like Pitchfork), and then exploring the content they are putting out to see what’s working..

      Sorry no – no idea how PSY got so popular.

  • aziz

    Well i have a niche sound. Contemporary Soul. yes a promotional plan. But, I thought it was possible to build a platform that uses your SEO formula, to drive traffic to the website and of course sales. Was looking for alternative digital marketing strategies as opposed to begging online journalist like “pitchfork” to feature you.

    Can you use pumpkin hacking on facebook & youtube?

    • Nick

      Absolutely – especially because you get such quick feedback on what’s working. Facebook will give you engagement metrics and you can track through conversion to dial in your CPA, and same goes with YouTube.. some videos will start gaining traction while others won’t. Deprecate the non-performers and continue to test on the the topics that are gaining views.

  • Zera Princ

    Thanx for this text. Extremely informative text. Anyone know how much percentage of Japanese use the site for advertising in the English language? I had some visitors from Japan. I have no idea how. :) And Google pays well for a click from Japan. Well, now I’m thinking … :)

    • Nick

      Google analytics will show you a lot of your visitors locations – it’s a great starting point.

  • jagoora

    Nick, how is this possible? i’m an amateur and i’m trying to put my site in top 10 in google among sites i know i can beat. unfortunately, i’ve been building backlinks for about 2 months now and i still get about 6 visitors daily((( i have many quality backlinks, from pagreank 5-9, etc. but i can’t see where i’m mistaken. if u can get thousands in a matter of days, why can’t i??

    • Jophan

      Hey dude, you talk about PR5-9 backlinks, probably these are fake or too high, this looks suspicious to go o g le.

      Nick talks about an approach WITHOUT backlinks. I tried to copy what he did, but there was no chance to get those traffic numbers, not even close to it.

      At the end of his post he talks about getting 100k with just 15 articles. I am still not sure how exactly this should be achieved. A bit more in depth explanation or a new post would really be appreciated.

      Nick, what do you think?

      • Nick

        Hey Jophan –

        One important point that is worth re-iterating – you can’t just target *ANY* vertical and think that search is going to explode your traffic. This particular project targeted not only a high traffic volume vertical, but more specifically a vertical where most of that volume comes through search. Furthermore, the topics we are building and acquiring content on are ones that the specific identified audience is passionate about; mobile devices in Japan are a very hot topic and people are ready and willing to write, comment, and engage on that topic.

        It’s not going to be the same if your creating content about how to build coffins, you know?

    • Nick

      Hey Jagoora – There’s a lot of nuances to that question, and unfortunately I see your site is Russian and I have no experience optimizing Russian sites for search. What’s the content of your site?

  • hacker

    This is so awesome. I haven’t seen stats like this this before… Really nice, your results are crazy

  • Boris Burda

    For now if you want to boost your site with traffic, you should purchase some SEO packages at SEOClerks or ListingDock

    • Nick

      That seems pretty risky to me…..

  • Larry Mosier

    This article very helpful. I really appreciate it. Thank you for sharing this post.

  • Harpal Singh

    Hello Nick,
    You post is awesome. I do want to add one thing, as per Google policy they don’t rank the sites on the basis of whois data, instead they use crawl and site index data. So we should write a post and then should submit it to SE as soon as possible. Just purcahing old domains are meaning less. Hope you agree ?

    • Nick

      Hey Harpal –

      While you are correct that Google doesn’t rank sites based on WhoIs data, purchasing aged domains with existing link profiles is still a great way to get a jump start – whether you absorb the traffic via cross-site canonicals or 301’s or if the content is contextually relevant, even just re-directing it into the TLD.

  • rohit marathe

    That was really motivating …..u did a great job, you did it without WordPress but can the same success could be achieved by using WordPress ?

    • Nick

      Hey Rohit – yes I think you could absolutely do this with WordPress.

  • Al Mamun

    Hi, Nick
    What a great post i find your blog you are right Crawlable is nothing new to anyone in SEO; this simply means that the structure of our pages allowed for all of the most important content to quickly and easily be crawled and indexed by search engine robots. It actually sounds easier than it is… ensuring that the content is rendered (code wise) in the most ideal format for robots to parse takes more consideration than just laying out your div’s to properly render your designs.

    I think research is so important, also i believe practice makes a man perfect.

    • Nick

      Hey Al – that is a very good point, I agree it takes careful planning and consideration (as well as a lot of testing) to make sure your code renders correctly for search crawlers.

  • Nathan

    Good grief nick, those are some sick stats. I have had my website for going on 3 years now and traffic is generally between 100-200 visitors per day, very low. My site is a PR3, alexa ranking just under 400,000 (only recently alexa rank certified though) but I guarantee my SEO of the site is all out of whack, the coding probably could be better as well. I could met certainly use your expertise. Let me know what you think after looking at it. Thanks for the outstanding write up, a lot of good points. I am still working to match up with the likes of runnersworld, runningtimes, halhigdon etc.

    • Nick

      Hey Nathan – I see a lot of room for improvement including things like your URL’s, the structure of your pages an how you link between them upstream/downstream, and the amount of relevant and contextual content. For example look at some of the sites that are currently on page 1 for “marathon training tips” and related keywords. Now compare these to the amount of content you have on – see the difference?

      Thanks for reading!

  • pnr status

    so useful article for me , i am new in this field so i learn so much about getting good traffic on my site

  • laithsky

    hi guys,
    any procedure to increase my website vistor?

  • Scott

    One critical aspect of this process was the pre-launch, which I think gets overlooked quite often. Without priming the pump, my guess is, this project would have taken significantly longer to gain the same results?

    Curious…did you use a ‘service’ such as LaunchRock, or broadcast to a list of existing ‘prospects’ you already had, or buy a list? If a service or list, then there would have been cost, or at least a long pre-launch period, correct?

    In short, how much activity did you have prior to your launch date?

    • Nick

      Hey Scott –

      You are absolutely correct. We built our own version of a launch page with social referral tracking in Rails (very similar to a LaunchPad or LaunchRock). We did not rent or buy any lists and had no previous prospects. Our pre-launch period was about 2 months and we used it mostly to drive sign-ups and gather initial reviews.

      Before launch we were seeing less than a hundred visitors per day, which is not nothing, and certainly helped the initial kick of traffic.

    I think this is far beyond my technical abilities as I don’t have any idea what you’re talking about or how I go about doing any of these things on my great-looking new site with zero visitors(just launched two weeks ago).

      Hey Chris – I see a lot of issues with your mark-up and content, specifically you have a *lot* of ads on your pages and they are very thin with content. You can’t rely only on iFrame content to to build relevancy – you need to add some actual content on your site’s pages.

    Hey, my blog was hack-d and deleted by my hosting company. Unfortunately i also lost the portable usb disk drive at which i stored my personal backup. I was running that blog since 2011 after that incident i was shattered and dishearten, even i didn’t do anything to restore my blog (one reason is that my hosting company was not helping me out, instead they are saying that a bug came from my blog to there system that cause them loosing other hundreds of websites’ databases and i am responsible for that, bla bla bla). However after a couple of months i manage to write this comment.. :( Now i am planning to launch another blog, i have selected word press and genesis framework (responsive). Now the only thing i am afraid of is about traffic to my blog. BTW I am planning to start a technology blog with multiple niche and features. My main focus would be only one topic but i want to write about some other relatively less relevant topics too. So, i am afraid of taking initiative. I am not so sure how would i get traffic in few first months. I don’t want to use any black hat or even gray hat sort of things, i am totally willing to get legitimate and genuine visitors and for that i am willing to pay as much of hard work as humanly possible. Please help me with that.

  • Mahmud

    Hello Nick, would u please help me? I have a self hosted wrodpress website about Windows Phone which is everything is OK and search engine friendly, 11 months old, but don’t get visitors. Please give some suggestion to improve my site. Thank you

    • Nick

      Hey Mahmud –

      You have a nice looking site and the articles are helpful. The only thing that jumps out at me is that these articles, while informative, are not comprehensive enough to stand out in such a crowded industry. I feel that in order for this blog to succeed and start attracting links, shares, and traffic – you will need to put a *LOT* more time and effort into your posts so that they can begin to stand on their own as true resource pages.

      I hope that’s helpful,

  • Pramod

    Hello Nick,
    I have one question. Is it safe to get website hits from point based websites like etc. ?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Nick

      Hey Pramod – It’s safe, but these probably won’t be qualified visitors and are unlikely to provide you with any conversions..

  • vinoth

    Hi Nice to see your post its so useful. I have a website its brand new Just 3 months old, I have been struggling to get traffic for free. Could you help Out this.

    • Nick

      Hey Vinoth – At this point, as a newish blog without much brand recognition you have way too many ads in your sidebar, the social share bar on the left side covers up the post titles, the site is slow to load and your logo does not look very professional.

      It is very important to first build trust with your readers so they start to come back and you can work on growing an audience over time.

  • usman

    my blog recieving 200-300 visitors daily, would you plz tell me what’s wrong with my blog, thanks in advance

    • Nick

      Medical content is not only a very tough vertical but it is very ambiguous, I think the topics you are targeting are simply far too broad; and instead you should pick a handful of more granular niches to focus on..

    • Nick

      Hey that site’s looking pretty good – Can I make a suggestion?

      The first thing that really pulled my eye was all of the comic book covers at the bottom (the horizontal row of jpegs), the issues here are 1) it’s at the bottom of the page – this is a very compelling visual cue, I would absolutely move this to the very top of the page, and 2) they all link to the flat image URL’s (not content) so they are each an endpoint versus the beginning of an engagement path – I would absolutely suggest having these instead link to relevant content about each comic.

    • Nick

      Hey Virender – The size and placement of all of your advertisements makes it almost impossible to use your website.

      Best advice I can give you is to remove all the ads and just focus on being a valuable resource for your visitors, then once you have built up a stable base of traffic explore opportunities to monetize that traffic.

      But don’t worry about it at this point, the few dollars it might be making you is costing you traffic.

    How to get 500 Visitor to my website daily???

    • Nick

      Hey James – You actually have a great looking website, IMHO your biggest issue in terms of search is the lack of 1) textual content on your homepage and 2) lack of fresh content. Perhaps consider adding a section that shows user’s most recently uploaded items, so it continues to update AND get more textual content with deep links into your site.

    HI Nick,

    Need one help please.

    We have more websites and we want more traffic with more visitors on website.

    blog comments
    directories submission
    articles submission
    social media submission etc.

    what is right tasks ??

    • Nick

      Hey Suresh – Personally I wouldn’t recommend any of those techniques for SEO. Blog comments can be a solid strategy for traffic leaks (same with classifieds) but otherwise I would avoid them like the plague.

    Love this post. Love the thought of pumpkin hacking, love the testing and dispensing of push to fruitful substance. Adore that despite the fact that you make this sound like a breeze that you imply the way that it wasn’t.

    I’ve delighted in perusing this and tackle board a hefty portion of your focuses. Originating from an interpretation/restriction foundation i’m intrigued to know how you took care of Japanese as I can’t see computerized interpretation quality sufficient to keep guests?

    I was flabbergasted at how you and your group accomplished such an accomplishment with quickly developing a site from the beginning. I as of late recently began taking a shot at a little ecommerce site (I understood 1k+ item pages is viewed as little in the ecommerce world), yet just without anyone else’s input and not as a group. I essentially need to adjust the entire site structure and every item page (beginning with ones that are now positioning great and those that changes over the most), make new pages to target pertinent watchwords not being centered around in the recent past, in addition to different undertakings. From your reaction, I recently acknowledged it without a doubt would be simpler on the off chance that I’d outsource a few undertakings or get somebody into help (this is the first ecommerce site I’ve ever dealt with). I’ve been instructing the customer about the methodology to abstain from being pestered concerning why it takes eventually to get the rankings kicking in.

    The thing that truly emerged to me was the substance technique, it appears this is one of the key things that are truly expected to produce incredible results like you have indicated. It has truly persuaded me to observe this closer in our own systems, so much obliged concerning imparting your system in so much points of interest. General this methodology obliges stacks of arranging and work yet in the event that the results are so great, it unquestionably is worth the trouble… regardless of the fact that we utilize it on a littler scale.

    You have imparted an extraordinary example of overcoming adversity. I’m tad bit befuddle about Pre Launch. I need to know, in what manner can your site recorded and creeped via web search tools in Pre Launch mode? in the event that slithered then what improvement in the middle of dispatch and prelaunch. I’ve prelaunch my site and begin third party referencing yet confine web crawlers to slither and record my website. Is it accurate to say that it is correct approach or off-bas

    Good advice ! I never heard of the Pumpkin thing, very interesting! I think back before the P and P updates Google had, having a website, it was easy to get ranked in google. Write a blog post, submit and it was in the search – easy. Someone writes a blog post similar, your post would get bumped down. Now it is a lot of work getting a website ranked on google once again. Fun work though because I am learning a lot :)

Still, it seems me a very interesting project that demonstrates that success in networks need long time. Great experiment.

    You have probably heard a lot about social media marketing nowadays; in fact, it’s all the rage for all types of website owners, no matter how large or small their sites might be or what they are about. By creating profiles on Facebook and other popular social media websites and making connections with people in your community or people who are interested in the industry that your company is based in, you can spread awareness for your website all over the world. Also, by sharing interesting posts, pictures, links and videos, you can help your social media profiles go viral. You can handle your own social media profiles if you want to, or you can hire a company for better and faster results.

  • Richard Smith-Beverly

    Hi Nick!!!!
    Great article!!!! I’m particularly amazed that after almost 3 years you are still getting comments on this article!!!! Equally impressive is that the site wasn’t your native language!!!!! It’s BRILLIANT!!!! I did read about 70-80% of the comments and responses from you and have learned a lot. I have a few questions and hopefully they are original and haven’t been asked already.

    My first question in reference to tracking the progress of your traffic – generating efforts. You spoke of 3 criteria to measure by including funnels, goals, and I forget the 3rd element but all using GA (Google Analytics). Do you have an article about how to set this up in GA with more specific detail about each criteria? For example, when you refer to goals – do you mean numerical goals of 5k or 10k per month?

    My second question have you monetized the traffic you are now getting to the site to recover your investment?

    My third question is in reference to your team for 6 months. Was the work they provided for the site bartered or did you actually pay them?

    Looking forward to your response. I would love to implement and track your ideas for traffic for my new site. Thanks so much. Cheers.

    Hi Nick…….

    I’m 66 and your article is a bit over my head as ten years ago I turned on my first computer ever.

    I have spent most of those yen years building my website and just can’t seem to get much more than 200-300 visitors per day no matter what I do.

    I was hoping to make a little bit on the site through adsense to help in retirement, but without more traffic it’s pretty challenging to earn through Adsense.

    I have over 1100 pages and full length posts that I have written over the years and it’s all my own copyright content, but no matter how much I post or how well written or informative the articles are I can’t seem to increase traffic.

    At one time most of my articles on were on the top ten of Google search and I was getting 600-800 visitors a day until things came crashing down a few years ago because of whatever changes google made.

    My website never recovered and it’s pretty disappointing after the hundreds or hours I have spent on it.

    Just last year I also began working on a new site called but I’m betting virtually zero traffic on that one.

    Any ideas would be welcome. Also what would it cost to get you to help me build my traffic?


    • Nick

      Hey Ray –

      Thanks for stoping by and leaving a comment. I took a quick glance at singlesizzle and my immediate reactions are:

      1) Move on pat the default wordpress theme – this screams amateur IMHO
      2) The posts on here are thin. They are mostly opinion, do not have images in them (besides just the ads) and do not convery deep sentiment, data/research, or provide much value beyond being anecdotal.
      3) The single *biggest* issue hurting your website – you have ONE (1) backlink, and it’s nofollowed.

    I love reading your post. Is there any reason why you didn’t monetize your blog using Adsense?

    Thanks bro

    • Nick

      Hey Dave –

      Thanks man. I monetize through product sales and affiliate offers versus passive ad-fill (like AdSense) which barely cracks $1 eCPM.

      Cheers man!

      Hey Rajeev Sharma,

      make sure you market your articles properly so that a lot of people read them and you get the most out of them. Simply posting them out there isn’t going to aid you much.

      Just a friendly tip. Cheers.

  • wags

    Nice post, I have read it a few times now and a lot of the comments also.

    I notice there is no mention of where the visitors are from regarding the geographic, people may find this a strange question as its been written in Japanese but its regarding the domain extension.

    Did you use the cctld for Japan or was it a TLD with geo targeting in webmaster tools, or a TLD without any geo targeting.

    And what effect do you think the different combos may have, I’m also assuming you bought a keyword rich domain as well

    Thx paul

    • Nick

      Hey Paul –

      99% of the visitors are from Japan, with the other 1% being from surrounding areas; Korea, China, etc.

      I used a Japan ccTLD (.jp), but this was only after building a few test sites on .com’s – which still ranked OK on, we went the route we did mainly for the perception we wanted to portray/maintain in Japan.

      The domain was actually not keyword rich at all, we focused specifically on the brand which means “suggestion box” in Japanese.

      Thanks for the question.

  • Rohit

    I want to increase the traffic to my website and I can’t find any useful information here…where should I go now

  • Rohit

    Well, we are specialists in SEO and we know how to do SEO….I just wanted the key factors for SEO that will revolutionize the world.

    You have a best product and it is not marketed well then it is a complete waste and whatever you do with this product entirely depends on your ranking.

    Search for common products like ” brush” on Google and you will get a lot of information….select another product ” Fresh Apples” and the list goes on.

    A scientist asked to a SEO Expert ” What good are you doing to the world with SEO as you are just selling and that is not really innovative at all”
    SEO Expert replied : “Well, I know I am not doing a rocket scientist’s stuff but I am sure I can let people know who is a real rocket scientist”
    Is this True? I am sorry I am still thinking about it…..

    Great article! Getting traffic in a world where thousands of blog sites are created everyday is a challenge. There is simply a lot of internet “noise”. To stand out consistently amidst a noisy crowd will determine whether or not your site will deliver the goods, so to speak.

    As the publisher of, I constantly scour the net for ideas that help website owners drum up interest in their own site. May I ask what your site was about? And what key traffic methods you employed? That would make good discussion points.

    Keep up the good work!

After read your article I think I did good.

    You probably already knew, but you should add social media connection, script management, data structure, etc, on the article to boost more traffic, content maybe King, but script is the Throne.

But, i can understand that because my website is still pretty ugly at the moment, contains just a few infos about mixed topics, and that’s why people visit my site and leaves within 20 seconds, and as google looks at the view time of my site and pages, i get bad search ranking. 20 seconds of view time per visitor is how? Good? Bad? What is good, 50 sec +?

    i want get more visitors can any one suggest me plz call or mail me . 09715002777

    • Deon Christie (@DEXTROBLIX)

      Hi Ashok,

      Getting targeted visitors can be extremely tricky. There is absolutely No way I know of to accomplish this instantly. However, the journey toward this accomplishment is a road much less traveled. Your site content is of crucial importance, not to mention your keyword targeting. For instance; it’s a good idea to have a certain keyword you wish to rank for in your domain name. There are countless methods and tactics, which I couldn’t possibly share in a single post. I can however provide you with a free 49Page PDF File with traffic methods for you to learn from.

      Hope this helps –

    • Deon Christie (@DEXTROBLIX)

      Hi Ashok,

      In my opinion, perhaps you may have to consider your targeting. You have quite an impressive website, allow me to congratulate you. Truly, well done!

      Your site is about Forex Exchange and Investment. Your domain is “alwaysgain” – I notice the absence of your Niche targeting? For example, one of my domains I’m currently in process of ranking is called – “clickbankaffiliateincome” My website is – – My Keywords are – Clickbank, Income, Affiliate, Marketing, Internet, Earnings

      Hope this helps,
      Be Prosperous,
      Deon Christie

    • Jess D’souza

      Hi Ashok,

    hello nick, you have showcased your visitors flow but didn’t reveal on how you have received the traffic, if you are targeting 50,000 keywords then getting the required traffic is easy but the challenging here is targeting few high competitive keywords and making them on top is really challenging for more details visit my blog

  • Nick Eubanks

    Traffic all came in via organic search, I go into painful detail about this in the post – as well as explaining how we were able to rank for insanely competitive terms after we started to cut out the terms that weren’t gaining traffic and focus on those that were (the pumpkin hacking method).

    I think most people over-complicate the things. They try too many things at the same time like — ” I require to do PPC, I require to do SEO, I require to do social media marketing.” It’s so essential to remind that you go through different phases in your biz. You don’t need to over-complicate the things in the beginning. In the start, the most effective way to get free traffic is to write posts for other bloggers who have more traffic than you. Well, here’s an article on “how to boost traffic to your website”. It gives you exact steps on how to increase traffic to your website.

  • AmitNath90

    hi there :) i am a newbie in the world who is running a blog on the travel and tourism and after a long try even i am not satisfied with the traffic flow as i am developing lots of quality contents but getting very low number traffic in my site :)
    what i really can do, can anyone suggest me plz ?

    • Crazypeneurs

      Hi Amit,

      You need the Right Content to bring in targeted traffic. You can write quality content but what if nobody cares about it. As given in the above post become obsessed with your customers, what do they care about? What interests them? Once you get the key to writing The Right Content, you can write posts for other bloggers who have more traffic in your niche which can bring a lot of targeted traffic to your website.

      Good Luck !

  • Claire de Carreté

    I appreciate the information provided in this article, thank you. I have a question about the pre-launch, launch. You didn’t see these visitors drop off when they were only getting a small bit of information? I fear pre-launching without a multitude of features + various forms of quality content will make people stay away in the future, once those items are addressed, if not at the onset.

  • Brad Vick

    Beautiful post.

    How many articles and sites are there about making money online? Thousands ? Millions ? Enough? Probably. But there’s a problem. Too many of them are just sales pitches to convince you to sign up for some seminar, webinar, training session and some other ways to become an online millionaire. They really give online earning and money making a bad name. But it is possible to make money online. I say it`s possible. But how? To know
