Do you have a blog or website that has dead traffic? If you ask any SEO pro, the first thing they will advice you is to do link building. It is because; link building contributes huge part in SEO activity. I agree with that partially, because it helps to improve SERP ranking in google and overall it will increase traffic. But, content gives thousands of unique keywords that we can get good ranking for as not many will concentrate on low level competition. Each unique content blog post will help you get more traffic from search engine.
For example, if you take note on all those high traffic blogs or website, they must have thousands or hundred thousands of pages indexed in google. Imagine if you ranked in top 10 position for at least 10% of your posts, it will draw huge number of traffic from search engine itself. Write more blog post and get more exposure for your blog and website. Write contents that are related to your niche and draw related traffic from search engine freely. Frequently update blogs will get constant visit by search engine bots and any simple changes will shown on search engine within less than few hours.
Whenever you start a blog, remember your competitors are already having thousands of pages indexed and getting thousands of visitors a day referred from search engines. So, they are doing well because of their long term support to their blog or website. You may need to do the same in order to be successful in your field. Don’t give up on your blog or website if you don’t have at least 1,000 unique pages that well indexed in major search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. Currently, I’m trying to post one post a day to increase unique contents on this blog and hoping to see the results in next one to two years.
