what does organic traffic mean?

Organic traffic means the free visit (not paid ads) you get on your website after someone finds you when using a search engine like Google or Bing

That is the type of traffic every blogger need to be honest so he can get the post seen by users for free

How to get traffic to your website without social media

Your first step to getting traffic to your website organically and without using social media for marketing is to publish valuable and helpful content regularly on your site

The second step is to focus on the SEO (search engine optimization) in every post and page on your blog

Because SEO is what will make your articles show first in the search results which will increase your organic traffic over time

What is SEO Checklist to get a higher rank in Search results

There are a lot of steps you do while writing an article so you could get a higher rank in the search results and those tips are:

The right keywords

Choose your keywords wisely by doing decent research and using a combination of low and high-search volume keywords

Find your keywords with those free sites: Ahref Keywords GeneratorMoz Keyword Explorer

images optimization

Optimize your images by writing in the description and the alt text the focus keyword you choose earlier while doing your research

Use internal and external links on your post

The internal link is when you add a link to another blog post inside your article

And this way you are linking your content together

The external link is when you share links to some outsider website as I mentioned above the Moz keyword explorer for example

title and heading

Add the focus keyword of the blog post in the title and make sure this same keyword is also mentioned in the first paragraph

Try to add the focus keyword in some of the headings too, this will give you a high rank in SEO

meta description

Edit your meta description because it’s how your link will show in the search engine results

Keep in mind you could also gain direct traffic to your website and when you get this kind of traffic its means you got a returning user and that’s a good sign for the health of your site

What is direct traffic?

Direct traffic means the user entered your website URL directly in the browser search bar

Instead of searching the internet and clicking on your site by chance or by getting to you through social media platforms

social media and organic traffic

These days you need to be active on social media to grow your business even if you don’t like it

Especially if you are a blogger and want your posts to be seen and reach a good amount of traffic  

In this case, you need to share your content on other sites & social media networks to refer people to your website and not to mention its free

You have to keep in mind driving traffic from social media is not easy as they all make you believe and it’s getting harder since all the big platforms are optimized with paid advertising

But there are always some tips or specific social media platforms that could send organic traffic to your website the most

how can I double my traffic from social media

Firstly, study your target market to know how to go for the marketing plan

Every niche has a part of an audience that is interested in the same topic and these people are the ones that you have to target so you could possibly earn a sale or just a referral

After you know what users you should target your next step is to make a marketing strategy so you can surely get those visitors

Secondly, see on which social media platforms your target audience are active

For example, you can find professionals on Linkedin, teenagers are using TikTok these days..etc

If you have a blog you can find this information on google analytics if you link it to your website

Test what time is best for posting on social media

Try to post at different times to test what is the best time of engagement (likes. Comments, share) on your post on each social media platform

Here is some advice for the best time on each site:

Facebook

The best time to post on Facebook is between 3 am to 1 pm from Tuesdays to Fridays

And stay away from weekends

Twitter

Try to post early in the morning mostly between 8-9 am on weekdays and stay away from weekends

Instagram

Post on weekdays between 9 am to 1 pm and don’t post on Sundays

Linkedin

Best time to post at 9 am to Noon from Tuesday to Thursday and don’t post late in the night or on Sunday

Post regularly

The best way to increase organic traffic is by staying consistent and posting at the right time on each platform, in this way you will be active in the eyes of your followers

Here are some tips on how many posts you should do on each site

Twitter: 5 to 8 tweets daily

Linkedin: 1 to 2 posts per day

Facebook: 1 to 2 posts per day

Pinterest: post a lot on a daily basis but don’t go crazy so you don’t look like a spammer

Instagram: +1 post daily

Blogging: 1 to 2 posts weekly

You can’t handle this much posting on all the social platforms unless you have a big team

So if you are going solo the best thing you can do is master one social site at a time and then focus on the other one this way you surely can maintain this marketing schedule

Of course, there are some websites and software that can help you to stick to your posting plan

For example, the Social media automation tools (Tailwindapp – IFTTT) both have free & paid plan

Those tools will help you post on the time you schedule it beforehand so if you want a pro version and can afford to pay for such a tool do this to not stress out about posting

which social media is best for traffic

Even though most people use social media but not all platforms work for our business so you have to focus on specific platforms depending on your industry

It’s not a smart move to post on every platform and hopes you will gain traffic instead you should make a strategic plan and master the platform you are using

The best social platform to gain traffic is:

Linkedin

This platform has more than 1.60 billion users and a lot of them are professionals who focus on work

click on write article on linkedin

You will get access to the publishing menu, add a headline and a cover photo the recommended size is 1280 x 720 pixels and after finishing your writing click on Publish

    thanks for your comment, sure i will try to explain in more detail later on

    i have been blogging for a year only so I am still learning a lot of things, but I think there are always people who will steal no matter what, so just keep writing your quality content and Google will find the older indexed post, and if your post is the one it will be treated highly.
    focus on your keyword research and SEO, and market your posts on Pinterest especially and you will be fine.
    you also could visit TinEye to search if someone stole your images and then take action or use Google alerts so they can inform you if someone is using your title or keywords for example, but in general, don’t worry just be unique

  3. vc.income

    if you have a similar niche or as i can see an e-commerce/print-on-demand site then I’m up to guest blogging and vice versa
