This article is part of an ongoing project of mine. Writing articles that will generate search traffic and ad clicks. If you have not read about what profitable keywords to target. I suggest you give that a read first.
The methods I will attempt to outline is for long tailed search phrases.
Writing Adsense content is tricky. Maybe you will write an article about your experience shopping for car insurance in Tampa, FL. There is a good chance of seeing a few clicks a month for people searching for car insurance in tampa fl. What else can you write about? a lot. Current news & trending topics is hot, reviews of pop culture, products, places, events there is a lot of topics you can cover. Just remember this formula traffic = popularity – competition. Finding a happy medium is probably the hardest part.
Information sells, and if you solve someone’s problem or provide an answer to a question you are far more likely to get a click out of the deal. Have you ever searched diligently only to not find exactly what you are looking for? Why not make it easier for the next searcher to find that information. How to guides are very popular and fun to write.
You might even want to write about your experience with a certain local company. Did they go out of their way to make you a valued customer? Then by all means the world needs to know, did they leave you hanging? Rant away!
Be descriptive, relevant, repeat the keyword phrases in the Title, Descrition, Content and H1 tags on your blog.
Write hundreds of articles and you will see traffic grow in proportion. After all blogging is supposed to be about what is happening in your life. Share the right details, the one’s that people are searching the net for.
I do hope everyone is at least writing about events and what not in the local community. Even if your only writing 200 word editorials and linking to the article you are writing about. Keep blogging! Not every post needs to be a master’s thesis.
My goal is to blog 3-4 times per day for the next 3 months. Then I will have hundreds of articles and with any luck see a fair amount of organic traffic. Can I write about enough searchable content to generate 1000 visitors a day? I want to know!
After some time you will start to see what works and what does not. You will see how people find your blog organically. Reach out to other bloggers, befriend them, earn their attention. Complement others works, read other blogger’s articles, comment tastefully, pickup back links. Rinse, repeat.
Use Google Analytics, learn it well, it will tell you everything about your traffic. Who is sending what, organic, referral, direct traffic. How long the visitor is on site. It reported to me that someone reached my site searching for the keywords ‘naked twitter man’, on more than one occasion. Are you asking yourself the same question I thought? Who searches for that? Apparently a few people have.
In a rather short amount of time I have been getting hits to my blog based on some of these profitable keywords, all of them have been long tailed searches. Long tailed searches are highly targeted. Now I just have to optimize the Adsense Placements, and hope for the best.
Maybe you will discover that I have no clue what I am talking about. Maybe not.
Do you think this will work? I would love to hear from you, so drop me a line and let me know.
