Completion of a great new piece of content makes you feel so good. Doesn’t it? It makes you feel like a celebrity. But getting your “star post” falling on its head with merely dozens of visitors is too much disappointing at the same time, especially for a well-expected post. However, it doesn’t have to be the same ever again.
Here are few best tips to get your first 100 visitors on launching a new piece of content. By following this tips carefully, your brilliant content will never strive for visitors again, and if it is good enough, it will also give your website continuous flow of committed visitors for long term. So here we go:
Submit your article to Stumbleupon
Stumbleupon is content recommendation search engine where registered users are suggested webpages that are most likely to be engaging for them. Visitors can like and save their favorite webpages among the suggested ones and based on their actions, Stumbleupon will suggest you even more interesting content.
As a registered user of stumbleupon, you can also add your page to their collection of webpages. You have to fill a simple page submission form with its URL, title, category and keywords and within few minutes your site will get tens of visits. If your content is interesting enough, it will get likes and saves by people and stay within StumbleUpon database for long span of time delivering you continuous flow of qualified visitors.
Submit your post to Reddit
Reddit is quite similar to Stumbleupon except that posts shared by people are showed in form of text/image snippets instead of full webpage. Users can upvote, downvote and flag stories and links submitted by other users. So if you are quite good at creating catchy titles, you will get tens of pageviews and upvotes too. The more upvotes your content gets, the higher it will climb in the related category page.
So if your content is quite good and appealing, gradually it can make it up to front page of Reddit and get you enormous dose of direct qualified visitors.
Beware: Do not submit same url using same PC and same registered account multiple times. User curated websites usually have strict anti spamming policies and if they find you spamming, your URL or account may get blocked by them forever.
Ping the search engines for update
Pinging is the way to explicitly signal search engines that your website or blog has published a new post. To ping a web url, you will have to enter its page url, RSS feed url, title and keywords as submission details. As we all know, a Google gives more exposure to newly created page initially. So when you ping search engines about your post, you will get dozens of instant visits on your website.
Remember: You can only benefit from pinging if you do it at regular intervals of few days. Pinging the same url so many times in a while will not give you even more visitors.
Comment on relevant blogs
What do you do when you complete reading a good post? Probably you will see users’ comments on it to know what other people want to say about it. The same way other people are also used to follow blog comments at completion of reading a post. So if you smartly leave your webpage urls in blog comments of other websites, you will be able to drive direct qualified traffic to your website content.
Do blog comments on at least five similar latest blog posts to your content and leave your own backlinks smartly in them. It will surely get you a dozen of interested visitors to your site within hours.
– Comment only on the blogs relevant to your content.
– Paste urls only if it looks natural. If moderators of the site find your comments spammy, they will remove your url and block you from future use of comments.
– Prefer authority websites for blog commenting. Though they have strict moderation policies, they also have huge traffic which can follow your webpage through urls in comment.
– Prefer newly published articles to leave your comment. Newly published articles will get you more visits and more readers as your comment will be amongst earlier ones i.e. on higher place than other comments.
Post your updates on social websites
Social sharing is another metric considered by search engines for good rankings. Additionally, social websites have continuous flow of people on them.
So share url of your newly published content on your social profiles like Facebook, Google+, twitter, Pinterest & LinkedIn as they could deliver you highest traffic when posted at optimal timing. Post your url twice at different times of day, once in morning and once after evening to ensure maximum visibility of it.
Use Q&A portals to suggest your post to people looking for it
Question and answer communities are also great source for interested qualified traffic. On Q&A sites, find out some questions your content can be answer of and suggest your post with a short description as the answer or simple ask a question pointing to your content. People looking for the answer will surely visit your content following the url and if they like your content, they might visit your site in future again.
Though all the methods of sharing and curating your newly created content works well and gives you good amount of targeted traffic for short span of time, it is also worth notice that these methods will not give you long term SEO benefits until your content is exceptionally good and you build backlinks from authority websites.
