Increasing Traffic

I was looking for additional ways to increase the traffic to my blog here on Wealthy Affiliate, and ran across this article Backlinko by Brian Dean – Update October 29, 2021. October is only 6 months ago, so I feel it is still relatively current. .

Twenty-Seven Ways to Increase Traffic

He has 27 ways to increase traffic to your website. My idea is to share my journey through all the tips he has given, one at a time. I will take you through each and every item from beginning to end, and I will post the results I get as well, in a timeline that is easily understood.

#1 The “Upside Down” Guest Post

My first question was, “How do I get a ‘Guest Post’ and with whom?

My best educated guess is that I would want to find someone who is in my industry niche and possibly be a heavy influence to the industry for my niche. My niche is Affiliate Training & Marketing / How to Make Money Online / How to Start a Home Business. So I thought I would create an interview for one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate, since I am an affiliate for them. Kyle is one of the owners that does most of the training and finding out how he became successful would be a great way to get a guest blog post on one of his blogs. He has several. I will ask him if he would not mind answering some open ended questions and see what kind of response I receive.

The Upside Down Guest Post

Moving forward, the idea behind the “Upside Down” guest post, and I quote:

“Most author bio boxes are BURIED at the bottom of the page. This is a huge problem. If people don’t see your link in your author bio, they’re not going to visit your site. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to this problem: The “Upside Down” Guest Post. Here’s the step-by-step process

  1. First, write a guest post just like you normally would. (This skill is taught at WA)
  2. Next, include “helpful resource” sections throughout your guest post. These sections link to 2-3 helpful resources on the topic you just covered.
  3. Finally, include YOUR content as one of the “helpful resources”.
