Clicks from Organic Search Results Challenge 150 -1500 in 12 months: Day 1
Organic Search Results Challenge
I posted on the forum asking if it is possible to get 1000 daily page views in a year and most people think it is.
I though about this and they are right, with a sustained effort today I got page views to over 300 but 150 of them are from HP, not that that is bad, But I thought it is better to have external traffic so what challenge can I set myself to boost this: I am going to try and get my Organic Search results from 150 as it was today 19.01.2012 (see image, this is excluding the HP traffic and the referral traffic) to 1500 by this time next year. That is a 10 fold increase and while it may not be possible I am going to try very hard.
I have one big thing to say, Google Please don't sandbox me. Plus no more Panda's or other beautiful fluffy creatures of destruction.
A total of 150 clicks from Organic Search Results
How am I going to increase the number of organic searches that click through to my Hubs
Ok I guess this is the hard part and as this is the first hub which I am writing on this challenge, I should map out a little game plan of how I’m going to achieve it .
Write Lot's of Hubs
Now I guess this is obvious but if I am going to hit my target then I am going to need to write a lot more, I currently have 67 Hubs and 33 of them are less than a month old so are not bringing in much external traffic yet, so I am hoping that if they are equivalent to the first 34( hopefully better) then my traffic should be around 300 by the end of the year even if I just left it.
I think a fair assessment is that I will need to write 5 times as many as I have now if I maintain traffic levels which would make a total of 335 hubs which is 268 this year or just over 22 per month or 5.5 per week, which seems very doable but it's sustaining that effort.
How will I get clicks from Organic Search Results
This week I found the WTI which I am going to do each week without fail
Create 1 Science Hub, mostly physics, per week as this is my passion.
Create 1 business Hub each week.
Write 2-3 keyword random topics, probably from sport, climbing, film, pregnancy and maybe a couple of odd ones here and there.
The issue with this is though it may not be practical every week workload depending etc. So I need to be smart what else can I do to increase my chances.
Creating Back Links to improve your search Engine ranking
I will use Social Monkee every day to get 25 free back links as well as social networking and with my business hubs linking my website and blogs to these as appropriate. I will also answer Yahoo questions with links if they are appropriate (I know they are no follow) as extra traffic never hurts. If anybody else knows any other methods, I’d love to hear them.
I know you thought I’d forgotten about this, nope I will write articles about researched keywords. They will be keyword rich with specific tags and keyword rich summaries. I will be making sure that there is a google ad or Amazon capsule above the fold for maximum exposure and potential clicks. All content will be unique and I hope well written, for me anyway.
Do you think i'll do it?
Wish me Luck
Targets and Goals
So this is what I am going to do now I realise that the traffic with Hubs matures which means that I need to get more Hubs out earlier and that hopefully traffic should then grow over time so what are my Goals:
23 Hubs a month
23 submitted back links 1 for every article through Social Monkee
23 Back link made myself to a blog or appropriate arena, 1 for each each hub
All posted to FB and Twitter
Increase my Twitter following by 10 each month
Link appropriate business hubs to blog and website
So these are my personal goals with regards to clicks from organic search results:
January19th 2012 (current) At 150
January 19th 2013 (1647) Aim 1500 clicks from organic search results
So these are my targets for each month, I am looking to increase my monthly clicks through organic searches by 22%. This is what I will monitor progress against.
I will write a monthly Hub reviewing my progress and any new techniques or tips I have learnt or been told and lets see how it goes.
In order to complete this and stay on track I need all the encouragement and support you can muster, so please feel free to comment and kick my ass when I'm falling behind. Thank you for reading.
