Video: How To Get Thousands of Visitors From Google

By Guest Author

This is a guest post by Erica Douglass. If you want to guest post on this blog, check out the guidelines here.

It’s easier than ever to get Google to send your blog thousands of visitors a month. Forget complicated terms like “keyword density”–let’s keep it simple. Here’s how, with about five minutes of work, you can get your blog ranked highly in Google for valuable search terms.

Video Highlights:

[0:20] First step: Go to Google and type in “Google keyword tool”. The first result is the Google Keyword Tool.
[0:51] I recommend typing in a question word, like “how”, “how to”, or “what”, followed by a generic word that describes your blog, like “business”.
[1:20] Sort by Global Monthly Search Volume. This is how many people, on average, search for this keyword in a month.
[1:42] Look for keywords that have between 70 and 10,000 searches per month.
[2:00] Important: You should only target one keyphrase with each of your blog posts.
[2:20] Your blog post title and permalink should be this exact keyphrase. Resist the urge to add extra words.
[2:25] Use your selected keyphrase several times in your blog post.
[2:31] Also important: Make sure that when people link to your blog post, they use that exact keyphrase. The best way to do this is to make it the title of your blog post.
[2:48] If you have a WordPress blog, download the free All In One SEO Pack to modify your page title, keywords, and meta description.
[2:57] Your meta description is the sentence or two that appears below your blog post in Google search results.
[3:17] Guest posting, and linking to your blog post in the “blurb” at the end of your guest post, will help your post rank higher in the search engines.
[3:48] Use this simple system to get thousands of visitors to your blog every month!

    Nice tip Erica. I in fact use this little trick since sometime to find posts for my blog when I am having an “idea blackout” and I can certify that this works wonder.

  • Matej

    I would also recommend using Google Trends after you find keywords. In some cases it’s more accurate than AdWords keyword tool because you can see it’s the phrase is rising or falling in search.

  • Sheila Atwood

    This is a great explanation of how ALL IN ONE works. I will be referring my readers to this post.

  • Men’s Online Magazine

    t is all about choosing long tail keywords that don’t have a lot of competition

  • Steve

    Oh man, I’ve been missing out a lot of great stuffs. Thanks for the valuable video!

  • Caroline

    Thanks Erica, this makes everything so clear. I’ve just launched my maths blog and although I have All in one SEO and have read about seo, I was suffering from information overload! Going straight to your website now to restore my sanity!

  • James

    Why look for keywords that have between 70 and 10,000 searches per month? Why not above 10,000? Please explain.

    Thank you so much!

    • Gunther

      My guess is that keywords which are searched heavily are also targeted heavily, in other words there are a ton of sites out there aiming for them. My other guess is that the same accounts for the other side, too, so if the keywords search numbers are low, it is likely there are not too many sites out there targeting them. So if your blog is not super famous it’s amazingly hard to take one of the first ten spots in the search results for highly searched keywords. Hence you go for the slightly lower numbers in terms of keywords, in other words the middle part of the long tail. Your chances are much higher there.

      • Web Marketing Tips

        This is simple equation my friend

        High Searched = High Competition

        So you should go for those keywords which have less number of searches and hence chances of ranking well will be high.

    You can also follow the Google Trends, and write articles based on it. If it catches the eyes of people on digg or twitter, you’re sure to have many visitors on that day!

    • Web Marketing Tips

      But how you are going to get those topics on the trends.

      If you will follow the trends topic than this will be a general blog not niche based.

    Hi Erica,

    I agree with you. No blogger can succeed without taking advantages of Search Engines. Search engine traffic (organic traffic) is very important both in case of reputation and income. If we are lucky out of 100 visitors one will subscribe our feeds.
