Why everybody keen on SEO and social media marketing?

Everyone wants traffic to their websites, and both seo and social media marketing sources are huge.YouTube, Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn are the top 20 traffic sites in the world.Though you’re a fashion designer, SaaS marketer, or good travel blogger, you can find your targeted audience through one or both of these sources.Or if you sell physical products, you likely sell them on the e-commerce store such as flip kart, amazon and eBay—same concept really as you can sell virtually anything on them due to their size.There’s nothing wrong with getting traffic from these popular sites.But marketers don’t realize that digital marketing , SEO are just the surface of web traffic.Every marketers tries to get traffic from, which leads to stiff competition.

 

There are many other sites from which you can get traffic to your site that the majority of marketers never even take a look at them unless one of them explores.

For example Take Reddit.

We can see more and more articles about marketing on Reddit as the site becomes more popular and marketers see others succeeding on it.You can see seven specific examples of sites with tons of traffic that you can potentially drive to your own site.Have anyone u took the advantage of these 7 top sites for traffic? If no, then its time to hit it.

Read on…

IMDb

IMDb is the movie site.It has instant levels of traffic, all based on movies and TV.The first step in deciding whether a site could be good to market on is to determine whether your audience uses it.Since we’re not looking at the biggest sites (search engines and social media), only certain audiences will be found on each site.If your audience isn’t on IMDb, I promise that they are on some other large sites.Since IMDb has a very specific focus, it’s really only good if you sell products related to movies and TV.But if you do, it could be an opportunity.Because you won’t be able to drive traffic from every site that your target audience uses back to yours.You have to look for a way to drive that traffic back.In this case, there is one chance, and it comes from the active forum community on 1MDb

Etsy

Etsy is another site that will eventually be saturated by marketers. If you sell any sort of high quality jewellery, crafts, home decor, or clothing, it’s a fantastic e-commerce marketplace.

Why compete against so many businesses on Amazon for customers looking for the cheapest option, when there is a ton of traffic comprised of people who care a lot about those things and will pay a fair price for them?

If you have a product that is actually great, people will see it, and you will make sales.

You can certainly use conversion rate optimization and copywriting tactics to sell more, but marketing isn’t tough when there isn’t much competition.

BuzzFeed

 

Have u heard of BuzzFeed? Have you ever considered it as a traffic resource?

If you have a demographic in a social media (like entertainment, home decor, food, etc.), it could be a giant source.BuzzFeed not only has a millions of traffic but also allows you to grant your own content on it.

If that post gets some grip early on, BuzzFeed will actually help you by promoting it on the site.

Crafting the right kind of post isn’t easy, but if you do, you’ll get tens of thousands of views on your post.Then, you can link from your post (when appropriate) back to your site .

Matthew Barby has created a great guide to getting on the front page of BuzzFeed. He was able to do so multiple times himself and drove a lot of traffic to his recipe site:

Forbes

Forbes is a magazine site for all topics related to business.And while it’s possible to be invited to contribute, you can also drive traffic back to your site with a much simpler method: comments.Blog commenting back in the day used to be extremely popular. Eventually, people realized that it didn’t always produce results.The main reason for that is because they commented on blogs that had barely any traffic to begin with.Any post on the main page of Forbes will get tens of thousands of views. Even if a small portion of those people read your comment, that’s at least a few hundred eyeballs.From there, a great comment can drive anywhere from 25-50% of that traffic back to your site.That’s a decent use of your time, especially if you’re struggling with traffic.Every Forbes post has the “comment on this story” option at the bottom of the last page:

Really, you only need one.

The hard part is leaving a comment that will impress people enough to drive traffic back to your site. Here are some great resources that will show you how to do that:

 Business Insider

Business Insider is another site similar to Forbes, with slightly different topics

Even though it has a slightly higher Alexa rank, it still has an insane amount of traffic.

As an added bonus, you can add your website’s URL to your username as you leave comments

Again, this is just blog commenting, so use the same strategy as showed above with Forbes.

Allrecipes

If you have a food blog, there are many opportunities to get creative and draw traffic back to your own site.Although Allrecipes is a tough one, it’s still possible to make it work.A standard recipe page looks like this at the top:

If your review is really helpful, it will be seen by almost everyone who views the page.Then, you could place a link at the end of the comment. It’d be easy to make a natural transition.

For example:

I’ve tried 10 other gumbo recipes, but none have turned out as good as this one.It was so good that I adapted the recipe just for my gluten-free friends. They LOVED it!Here’s how I changed the recipe to make it gluten-free: (link)

The point is, look for ways to add value with your comment while naturally incorporating a link into it. It won’t even look like you’re trying to drive traffic to your site. It’ll look like you are just trying to help people.

 

Quora

Quora is the 141st most popular website in the United States.It’s a question and answer site that even we all use. It has the same concept as Yahoo Answers, but the quality is much higher.The site is continually getting more popular, and many marketers have realized its potential.The simple strategy is to leave really great answers to questions posted in the community.Great answers will be upvoted to the top and seen by most people.Then, include links in your answers as appropriate, and that will drive traffic wherever you’d like:

To get started, start typing a topic in the search bar. It will suggest a bunch of related topics, and when you see what you’re looking for, click it:

You can then follow that topic and answer questions that you feel you can do justice to.There’s no trickery here: you have to provide value.Yes, it’s a lot of work per answer, but the rewards can be big as well  to get branded.You can get millions of views on your answers over time if you stick with it.
