Thousands upon thousands of so-called gurus have led you to believe that Google is the king of all traffic and that if you don't follow Google's rules of SEO and linking, you are doomed to fail.
Well i'm here to show you why you don't relly need Google to crash your servers because of too much traffic.
According to alexa, Youtube is the third most popular site on the web. Billions of videos are watched each day and millions go viral. Im going to give you a real world example of a business that took off from a single youtube video gone viral.
The Dollar Shave Club. One hillarious video that went viral and launched their business.
Funny right?? have to do is get creative and post an online video series for your blog and watch the traffic pour in. Just make sure you have a link back to your site for your fans to follow you.
Don't just say something lame like, "Great post" or "Like your blog". Say something meaningful. Challenge the poster if you have to, ask him/her questions and slip in some information about your site like a similar post you had written. People will take notice of you and follow your name link to your site.
There are enough ways to get traffic off twitter that i don't need to go through right now. (if you want to know more check the twitter section) Basically all you have to do is build a following. Follow people who have already followed someone related to your niche. If they follow you back great, if they don't unfollow them.
Then whenever you have a new blog post or whatever. tweet it and sit back and watch the traffic come.
Actually my biggest traffic and subscriber bringer when I first started out. Write an awesome post. Stumble it and watch the traffic roll in and the great thing is it's long term. I tried it with a brand new blog with only one post in it and got 1500 views and 57 subscribers. IN ONE NIGHT!! Do not underestimate it's power.
