Quite a few people have asked me over the last 6 months how I get traffic to this and the other sites I run!
So I thought I would take a few minutes, show you some stats and let you in on the secret!
If you want to build traffic to your own website or perhaps start up a new website, a side hustle to create another income stream, read on.
Note – this doesn’t need to be an MC website, it could be anything!
First some stats …
In late March 2018 this Website was receiving 1,352 Page Views Per Month
On December 15th 2018 we are receiving 63,336 Page Views Per Month
That’s in just 8 and a half months! That’s Over 46X
I was actually quite pleased with the 1,352 back in March but obviously thrilled now.
(I’ll update this is April 2019 to give us a 12 month Growth figure.)
So what exactly did I do?
I’m going to tell you, but first have a think for a moment what 10X would do for your business!
I’ve probably read a hundred eBooks on how to grow a website over the years and invested in several training courses from the so called “Gurus.”
Some have been good, some dreadful.
In March 2018 I started watching some videos from a couple of guys and something clicked with me.
There was something that had been missing from all the other material I had been reading.
These guys were straight forward with no nonsense.
There was no hype, just solid practical ideas on growing a website.
And they already had a great track record of building high traffic websites.
They had developed a step by step process that laid out clearly what you had to do.
In late March I grabbed a copy of their own course and started to put their ideas into practice. The results speak for themselves.
This first image above is from Google Analytics and shows the explosive traffic growth over the last 12 months forming a “hockey stick” pattern. More importantly, it shows that most of the traffic is Organic Traffic rather than Social Media or Direct referals. The Organic Traffic is the dark blue.
Note – The course is mostly about building that Organic Traffic. It’s certainly not about buying traffic via adverts etc. That’s a game that requires very deep pockets.
Note 1 This is where I started and made a few simple changes to my website as explained in the course and it had an immediate effect within days! That is almost a doubling!
Note 2 Is about 3 months later and the site just changes gear! This was exactly what was predicted and explained in the course. Three months is about what you need to let Google see what you are doing and how people are reacting to what you are doing.
Note 3 I included this to show you that it’s not all plain sailing! There are ups and downs. Google is continually altering the way it works which can in the short term be alarming, but if you step back a bit and look at the big picture it’s excellent.
So there you are, you know my secret weapon!
Seriously, my traffic is nothing compared to a lot of websites, but if you’ve ever tried to get one started, you know how tricky it can be to get any traction.
