UPDATE: Kim’s Traffic Dashboard is no longer available, but Marlon’s dashboard IS. And because Kim’s tips are really good, I’m keeping the article, but now, all the links will point you to Marlon’s Traffic Dashboard…
Do you have a Traffic Dashboard yet? If so, you may wonder where to get started. I mean lots of choices is great, but it also makes it tough to decide where to begin.
Of course, if you don’t have it yet, CLICK HERE and get in on the bonus deal too (check out my last post for a review and details).
So here are a few of my own personal tips…
At least this is what I did, and it worked like a charm:
1) Zero in on Kim’s 10X method!
What is that? It starts with articles. But it doesn’t stop there. And if you’ve been trying to get traffic, you probably have a ton of articles already published in various article directories or maybe on your blog.
And now, follow the next four steps to make the most of them — fast.
2) Find your winners
The first step is to find your winners. What do I mean by that? It’s not necessarily the articles that got the most views, though that will help too. Instead, find the ones that got the most click-throughs!
That means that they get a good response, and that’s what you want. There’s little point in spending a lot of time and energy in spreading around your losers all over the web.
But if you do that with the winners, watch out.
Case in point… my own article with the review of Kim’s Traffic Dashboard had my highest click-through rate ever, more than 50%! So obviously, I started right there 😉
3) Optimize for your keywords
If you haven’t done so already, be sure to optimize your keywords. Yes, it helps to be in a lot of places, but it helps a whole lot more when people will find you in all those places on Google.
Oh, and just in case you’re prone to overdoing things… Don’t! Keyword stuffing is NOT going to get you where you want to go. Use those keywords about once or twice per hundred words at MOST. No more than that. But make sure they’re at the beginning and the end…
4) Work your way down Kim’s list
Kim lists a number of great strategies for getting your info out there. Pick one that is easiest for you to do, and start with that.
The principle behind Kim’s 10X method is to take your articles and turn them into a variety of different formats and then spread them around for the world to find.
She gives some excellent suggestions as to where exactly are the best places to publish them are, and I have to say that the results have been impressive — even though I barely scratched the surface of just this one module!
5) Decide: One at a time or several at once?
Should you focus on circulating one article at a time or should you do several at once?
How many articles do you have that really bring in the money. If it’s just one, get that one out there as fast as possible. But if you have several cash cow articles, why not get several of them ready and then publish them all while you are at each site, especially if they fall into different categories. That way, you’ll get more mileage for less effort.
Meanwhile, I wish you Happy Holidays and LOTS of traffic!
