How to get organic traffic in higher competitive niches

    Whats the best way to get google traffic from niches like losing weight, fitness, and stuff about ebay and etc...I can easily get traffic with some niches, but others seem to be more difficult to get google traffic from. I am only getting traffic from hubpages from certain niches.

    I send about 5-10 back links and try and use relevant tags and such. I know topics like losing weight are highly competitive I would assume, but they are popular which is good for traffic IF you can get it.

    Anyone got any incite on getting google traffic or general organic traffic outside of hubpages on more difficult Niches?

      All you have to do to get traffic in competitive niches is beat the competition.  The problem is the competition can be hella strong in the areas you are talking about.

      You can ask the bigger sites for links.  I have a hub about how to do that with some chance of success, (written from the perspective of someone who gets such requests from others)  but the takeaway is that you need something worth linking to and you need to show the bigger site exactly why giving you that link would strengthen their article.

      I would say learn how to assess your competition so that you know off the bat if a keyphrase is worth pursuing or not. Some keywords are just not worth bothering with because the competition is too steep and the amount of work required to beat them would cost a great deal in terms of time/money (like years and thousands of dollars!).

      The trick is to find keyphrases in the niche you're interested in that don't have overwhelming competition (usually long tail). As frog says, there are usually little nooks that haven't been found. It's a case of ferreting around and finding them smile

      Another tip is to keep up to date with the latest products/advice in your niche and try to get your hubs on these new things published as soon as you can ie: before everyone else!

        Yeah the gaming niche seems very easy to get organic traffic in, but the PPC are bad. I honestly don't know why they would be low. Not saying they should be super high, but gaming is popular.

        As for fitness and health, I wrote some muscle building exercises and they get traffic, but its not huge, but consistent. As for things like weight loss, it seems like a harder specific niche(to get traffic) then just basic muscle building.

    Beyond backlinking, and then backlinking some more, I reckon the best way is to figure out a niche within a niche, prior to writing a hub. There are always cracks in the armor, there's always a little nook that hasn't been explored.

    As a rule, I avoid bothering with the big guns. It's enough just writing about something I know, have experienced or want to promote, never mind competing with incredibly difficult niches smile

      I see what you guys mean about the big niches and avoiding them. Perhaps sticking to what works is better. I mainly want diversity so this is why I am trying to figure out how I can get organic traffic in harder areas.

    The best way to grab some traffic from a popular niche is using long tail key words and/or a few less popular key words within that niche.

    Then make several hubs about the same basic niche but about different things, and link them all. Make a big "main" hub about the niche and have all your other related hubs linking to that one.

    Then do your back linking and so on. smile

      Yeah I back link all my hubs(well over 90%), but need to find another site like social marker.com cause I only use so many there. Not sure if a few more backlinks would help though.

        Most social bookmarking sites give no-follow links

          no not social marker is a site that lets you send back links to websites quicker. There not all websites like myspace and stuff.

          It tells you whether or not there do follow or no follow. I send to do follow

            I use software to social bookmark. I have written many hubs on the topic.

            There is an untapped resource on Pligg social bookmarking websites that have a strong mix of dofollow and nofollow. There are over ten thousand pligg platform social bookmarking websites. The links get indexed quickly and the social bookmark sites are only there for people to submit links to.

            Using software to build backlinks indeed does work. I am seeing great results for minimal effort. It is all white hat to by the way.

            That's how you win the game. Have good content on your page and build backlinks to it. This beats your competition who go out and build backlinks for a while and then forget about it. The difference is we continue to build a large and wide variety of links.

    Congratulations buddy! Just find the topic that most of your traffic goes to and expand on it with other hubs!

    It will take you long time to rank your site on that keyword. Its better target a little bit less competitive keyword. when it starts ranking on this keyword than target the highly competitive keyword. You can read it for more info: http://seoservicesforall.blogspot.com/2 … -site.html
