Over 10,000 Visits in a Week - Importance of Content Creation to Convert

Last Update: April 10, 2018

I wanted to share a new milestone my website hit this week. I'm actually over 11,000 and the week isn't even over yet. Every month comes up and I just keep wondering to myself how can I keep pace to continue my traffic growth at the rate of quadruple every month but it just keeps happening. I'm not looking forward to when it flat-lines so I just keep curating new content.

Month 1 - 407 visits 30 pages - 1 conversion

Month 2 - 1,387 visits 60 pagess - 2 conversions

Month 3 - 8,366 visits 85 pages - 3 conversions

Month 4 - 30,785 visits with 5 days remaining 100 pages - several conversions daily

Month 5 - ????

I have not mastered converting, PPC, and many other things in WA but I wanted to share some observations I have had and what is working for me on an Amazon Affiliate site. How my content has developed over this period and what I see on a lot of posts I read from other sites.

1. Finish your KW - You always need to think and write for exactly what your KW is. If your not providing a solution or giving your visitors adequate information about what the KW represents then they will go to other sites to continue research. Don't expect to take your customer from point A skip B,C, and D and think they are going to do E like sign up for a FREE WEBSITE or buy this product. I see this all the time and did this a lot myself. Have you given them comparisons of How WA is better than another Service or the Product A that you promote is a better value than Product B. Does you site have enough content and value to prove you are an expert. Don't limit your word count, FINISH YOUR KW.

2. Think Long Term - A lot of people get stuck in today and worry about when they will start making money and I did as well but I didn't let that deter me from TAKING ACTION. You are building a business and made practically nothing for over 3 months but what I did do was continue to prep my site to become an Authority in my product. You may not be making money now and it may take you less or more time to start but your building content that can be adjusted, ranked, and a money maker in the future.

3. Low Hanging Fruit - How it has worked for me..... here is an example KW and how the process works with Google if you are writing QUALITY CONTENT that engages readers to visit more pages, stay longer, or revisit the website.

Best Baseball Gloves for Boys aged 5 to 10 - Page 1 Rank 1 in one week(100 visits/month)

Best Baseball Gloves for Boys - Page 1 Rank 1 in 4 weeks(400 visits/month)

Best Baseball Gloves for - Page 1 Rank 1 in 8 weeks(1600 visits/month)

Best Baseball Gloves - Page 1 Rank 1 in 12 weeks(7000 visits/month)

Baseball Gloves - Page 1 Rank 1 in ? weeks(50,000 visits/month)

Each KW does not always pull a lot of visits but they can grow to be your best pages if people engage them properly because of you content. The shorter KW's take longer and yield a lot more fruit but most of the time have great competition and much harder to rank for. I don't think I outranked any Authority Site like Amazon or Ebay for the first 3 months but now it is possible because at a longer KW visitors engaged that page and Google recognizes that. If they continue to engage no matter what length of the KW it will continue to move up. My 2 word niche KW I was not on the map for but I am almost on page 2(when I started I couldn't even get on the top 20 pages) verse some of the fiercest competition for 100,000+ visits a month. BUILDING TRAFFIC IS LIKE PLANTING SEEDS IN A FIELD. Spend the time in the spring plowing, planting and watering and it will grow until you harvest everything Fall has to offer.

Conclusion - I have no idea how big my site will grow or how fast it will grow but I can continually inspire growth by TAKING ACTION DAILY. Every KW I Plant today may Harvest into something great tomorrow if I choose good LOW HANGING FRUIT, THINK LONG TERM, and FINISH MY KW to inspire engagement from visitors. Reread your old work and think about, what would you want to know about this KW? Do I complete each subject within the post? Have I provided enough information to get them to engage with the proper link(Anchor Link)? Is my conversion page a closer?

Please leave your thoughts below and tell me what works for you or what other questions you might have.

Great post and thank you for sharing with everyone.

It appears in less than a year you've learned a lot about affiliate marketing. It goes to show you don't have to be part of WA for years to really learn how to build traffic.

Great job!

Wishing you a lot of success in the future!

Amazing Ryan, well done! I came to your blog post following a link given by Kyle to prove that quality content and good ol' low hanging fruit key phrase is the answer to loads of traffic. You are the living proof!

Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes from the south of France!

Kyle sent me over here via a link in his article about clicks through content creation. I am following you since what I read here was also important and necessary to gain success in this area. I also will return some time in the near future to read some more of your posts.
Thank you for sharing your experience to the betterment of WA!

Thank you for the great insight. This speaks to what Kyle covers in the training that many new bloggers do not see any results on the first few months and end up giving up. I have found that the hardest thing for me is staying consistent. I am in transitipn from a full time gig into speaking, coaching, and blogging and it is a whole lot to juggle some times but I am determined to keep on keeping on.

O have faith that it will all come together in the end. That is great advice about going back to your content and reviewing it. It is something I have to do. I have been focused on getting content out in the limited amount of time that I know my posts need to be updated.

Thanks again for the I insight.

Very motivating and so true! Kyle actually sent me this post in an email and I can see why he recommended me to read it.

This is reiterated all throughout WA, but we have to all remember that we are creating a business - A business of helping people; just like other people help us each time we use the internet to compare, research, or find an answer to a question we have.

Just like you said, all the hard work that we do in the beginning will pay off in more ways than one, providing us with something we can continue to grow, invest in, and watch evolve.

Thanks for sharing this!

All the best,
