    Hi Kevaton,

    The steps you have outlined above on how to drive massive targeted traffic to a blog by SEO are effective ones to get organic traffic from search engines. Optimizing a site requires a lot of effort and consistency, that is why a lot of Bloggers totally ignore it and go for advertisements. Comparing traffic from paid Ads to traffic from search engines, the latter is better because it grows over time and brings higher Cost Per Click (CPC) on AdSense.

    You may be wondering,

    What is SEO and what Impact does It have on my blog?


    Search Engine Optimization is improving pages on your website for search engines like Google, Bing, and Yandex. Optimization involves a series of steps and strategies implemented to ensure your blog is ranked on their top pages. SEO is beneficial to every website on the net because it gets their blog seen by a large proportion of searchers and in return, more sales are made and income generated.

    Now, while SEO has been quite rewarding and still is in terms of increasing blog traffic in 2018, many people still don't know how to go about it or are doing it the wrong way. In this regard, I'll be inputting strategies I have used over the years that have helped me ranked new and existing blogs on Google, Bing, and Yandex Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). These strategies are categorized into On page SEO and off page SEO.


    1. On page SEO: These search engine optimization techniques are carried out on the blog/website. They are mainly focused on individual pages on the blog and how to improve their visibility in search engines. On page SEO techniques you should apply include:

    • Research for a topic before writing: As a rule, never publish a post you haven't researched on your blog. Researching involves using SEO tools like Ahrefs and Semrush to find the difficulty of a keyword and its popularity. On this note, choose keywords that have very low difficulty but meaningful monthly traffic. The chosen Keywords should be in three's or four's for instance, 'SEO Ranking Tips' and not 'SEO'.
    • Use your chosen Keywords at strategic locations: To optimize blog posts for SEO, the best places for keywords in your articles are in the Post title, Post header tags, Post URL, Post Tags, first 100 lines of the post, the body of the post and in the conclusive part of the post. You can alter your keywords at each location with the use of synonyms, for instance, 'Sites like Postloop' as keywords can be replaced by 'Sites similar to Postloop' or 'Postloop replacement sites'.
    • Target your main Keyword alongside related keywords: You can also get organic traffic to your website for other keywords related to your main keyword. This is because different people are looking for the same answer but searching for it differently. As a result, you need to also use these keywords in your content. You can easily find these keywords from Google suggestions while typing in your web browser.
    Here's an example:

    My related keywords for this post are: How to get visitors to your blog, how to increase blog traffic, how to increase blog traffic fast, how to optimize blog posts for SEO, increase blog traffic 2018, how to get more organic traffic to your website, how to index backlinks, and how to index blog posts. As you read through this post, you will notice I have snuck them in without being so obvious or was I?:sneaky:

    • Write over 1,000 words: More words in the body of your post ensure that you don't leave any detail uncovered. Search engines like Google tend to rank blogs with longer posts higher than those with shorter ones (Less than 500). There is nothing like writing excessively as long as you don't overstuff keywords in the post and you're writing inline with the topic at hand. Spend time on researching and writing an article because it'll be worth it. After publication, crawl, and request for Indexing of your post using Google Webmaster Tools.
    • Use Images to make the post more descriptive: Images make content very easy to understand even without reading the said article. This being so, use descriptive images that will help the user understand steps outlined in the post especially if it is a tutorial article. Also, search engines strive to present users with the best results, and the best are usually links to blogs with great content.
    • Improve page load time: Reduce the number of site widgets and gadgets on your blog in order to make it load fast. Do not settle on being on page two of SERPs when most of the traffic is on page 1. Therefore, remove unnecessary widgets on your blog that increases its page load, use a fast loading template, compress images before using them, upload images to the same source, and compress Javascript files.


    2. Off page SEO: One more SEO strategy that you should never overlook is optimizing off-site. This can be done by building high-quality backlinks: A Backlink to any site counts as a vote that the site has relevant content. It is used as a signal to rank a site over others on the Internet. Hence, you should build high-quality backlinks to your site on a timely basis. You can build quality backlinks to your site by:

    • Guest posting on blogs related to your niche and leaving your site's link in the body of your post.
    • Submitting your posts to social bookmarking sites such as Reddit, StumbleUpon, and Slashdot.
    • Submitting your posts to Web 2.0 sites such as Tumblr.
    • Writing quality and relevant content that will naturally get shared by other bloggers.

    After building backlinks, you need to know how to Index them. This can be done by submitting the link to the pages where your site's link are on to Index tools such as RSS feed aggregators and Index tools submitters such as Pingfarm in order to speed up the Indexing rate. This is because the faster the backlinks you have build are indexed, the faster your domain authority will improve and site traffic.

    Conclusively,

    These are some of the ways on how to drive massive traffic to a website or blog by SEO, and a combination of these tips will definitely skyrocket your site to top pages on search engine within a matter of months. You will get visitors to your blog for free, increase your blog's popularity, and most importantly, see an increase in your earnings. In the same vein, do not expect quick results as traffic from search engines takes time but it is worth the wait because once you start receiving it, it can only get better.

    Just wanted to add something to this...

    There is a lot of confusion about article length, when it comes to SEO.
    Writing longer pieces isn't a sure way to get better rankings.
    One should think about Google's bots less, and think about one's audience more often.
    How would you react if you Googled a restaurant's address and landed on a 2000 word article?
    You would live immediately, right?
    Huge articles can actually cause your bounce rate to rise quick a bit.
    Make sure the article's length matches the user's intent, and worry about nothing else.

    I totally agree with this, a lot of times bloggers worry too much about the length of their content. Talking from personal experience nobody likes to read long posts, especially if you're sharing a step by step process or tutorial OR something that helps your audience, they don't want to have to read your 5000 word post and only notice how repetitive it was when they can instead find out their desired information fast and easy somewhere else. It will definitely hurt your bounce rate and decrease your Google rankings, so it's best to focus on providing straight to the point insightful posts than long repetitive ones

    Making your website/blog to be SEO friendly is very tricky and hard. Thats true, some bloggers or website owners rely on paid traffic. But paid traffic is not very helpful in some website owners. Being a knowledgable in SEO is very important.

    I searched about SEO tips and many articles pointing about SEO. And when I follow their steps, my blog doesn't seem to be on the top of any Search Engines. Maybe there are more understanding about SEO. But maybe it depends also on search engine how they index our blog/website.
