### 4 X Search Engine Traffic – Goals Challenge!

As I mentioned in the beginning of this training, my first step to rapidly increasing my Google traffic was to define a clear goal… Now it’s your turn…

Let’s set some crazy goals!!! – Write or copy & paste them down where you will see them daily… And read them daily until you are 100% confident that it is ALREADY ACHIEVED.

Your WA Profile is an idea for safe storage… You will see what I mean just now ;)

Here is how I recommend you set your goals,

• Set Your daily Website Traffic Goal for 1 year from now… Make it so big that it scares you!
• Set your daily Website Traffic Goal for 6 Months from now... about 1/3 of your year-end goal?
• Set your daily Website Traffic Goal for 3 Months from now… again about 1/3 of the 6 month mark.
• Set Your daily Website Traffic goal for 1 Month from now… again, about 1/3 of the 3 month mark.

Now guys and girls, I know some of you will have a tendency to under estimate yourself at this point. DON’T!!

Set a goal to reach the top of a mountain and there is a pretty good chance you will achieve it. Right?

But then what?

However, set your goal for the stars and there is a good chance you may not reach it, HOWEVER… There is a far better chance that you will surpass that mountain and end up reaching the sky now!

So what I am trying to say is, BE BRAVE, step outside the box and don’t let your goals limit your true potential.

You will put more effort in by reaching for the stars than you will if you only have to reach for the top of that mountain and this will show in your results.

### What do I mean by reaching for the stars?

Well, let’s say you have absolutely no traffic from Google to your website at the moment?

Would 30 000 visitors a month, 1 year from now be a crazy enough target? I personally think it may be… but let’s break that down for a second.

### Goals:

03 January 2017, I have monthly website visitors = 30 000

03 January 2017, I have daily Website Visitors = (30 000 / 30) = 1 000

03 June 2016, I have daily Website Visitors = (1000 / 3) = 333 (Because I don’t like chopping people in 1/3’s) ;)

03 March 2016, I have daily Website visitors = (333/3) = 111

03 February 2016, I have daily Website Visitors = (111/3) = 37

### How Am I Achieving This Goal :

• I am dedicating and focusing myself to mastering Google traffic generation only.
• I am writing 8 to 12 quality, value filled posts a month… A comfortable minimum of 2 posts a week.
• I am analyzing and learning from what is working and applying what is working to my future posts.
• I am incorporating a long term SEO plan for my evergreen pages and building on this via my 8 to 12 quality, value filled posts a month in the short term.

Now, is this really that crazy?

For 37 website visitors a day, all you need is 8 posts with 140 visits a month each, OR 12 posts with 92 visitors a month each. . . And so on. How many you do is up to you.

Don’t jump the gun here ;) lol. Those figures will come in to play a bit later.

But considering the more posts you do and the more your website ages and gains domain authority… The better your evergreen pages will start to rank and start sending 1000’s of additional visitors per month to your website…

Can you see how realistic 30 000 visitors a month actually is? Not just some crazy guy anymore right?

Maybe a little ;)

Please take a second to complete your Google website traffic goals now and post them in the comment section if you’d like… I’d love to know what they are.

When you are done, let’s jump into the next step.

Ok so here is my first question.. I am just going through this a little bit at a time. With Jay's 10 steps he states make a Youtube video, did you do this with every post? Is this step necessary?
Setting up a YouTube channel is easy to do and a great way of getting traffic. Personally I do not do them for every blog but combining blogs with vlogs is a great way of keeping traffic interested in your site.
Very fair question, and the short answer is no. This is actually a weak area for me...

I fully realize the massive potential in making video's, however, have not yet been able to sit down and get going with my own videos yet..

I do embedded videos from YouTube on some of my posts and do find that it holds a lot of value, but for now those video's are not my own.

There is loads of traffic to be taken from it and though my thoughts on YouTube are purely from extensive study on the topic and not practice... It is not a traffic source that you want to ignore.

I have seen people build their online businesses from YouTube traffic alone and when you consider that YouTube is owned by Google, It makes complete sense why.

Thanks Marc, I have done a few videos but I just wanted to check what your modus operandi was. I can't see me being able to do enough videos for all my blogs!
So you have added other people's video's on the topic to your posts?
Yip. Relevant video's.

look out for links etc in the video so it does not send people to someone else' affiliate link tho.
Ok cool, will do :) Thanks for the tips!
YAY, now what to do with the 2 kids I have at home for the next week?? Damn I have to wait until after 8pm tonight to tuck into this!
lol. doesn't look like you managed to wait until 8pm ;)
ROFL no, I was trying all day and I got to 24 mins in, I will try again tomorrow. Burnt out!
thanks for the share
Hi Marc, Yikes!! Just had a look at keywords in webmaster tools. Other than the first one which is such a broad keyword, the next few have nothing to do with my niche. What am I doing wrong - aside from the obvious answer which is a lot! Almost every post is centred around a keyword that has the right "numbers", and I use it in the title, first paragraph and last. Cheers, Hindy
Hey Hindy!

Did you change the theme? I love the new look and header image. It immediately drew me in!

I had a quick look at your posts and can't promise I'll be able to do so for everyone, but what I noticed is that even though, according to the keyword tool... The posts are meant to be super easy to rank... You are going up against some super powerful Domain authorities.

I think that focusing on your competitor analysis will help a lot in choosing which keywords are worthwhile.

That being said... You are doing extremely well for the position that I found your posts in... I did not expect to see them up there with the likes of Amazon etc.

I mentioned at the end of this training that 'you may be one degree away from boiling', and I really think this applies to your website at the moment.

Check out Jays completion analysis training. I am 100% sure it will help.

I covered a bit in page 8: Extreme Keyword research of this training, but Jays goes more in detail.

Link to Jay's training can be found in page 3 of this training.

Let me know if you are still uncertain after that. :)

Cheers,

Marc Parsons
Hi Marc, I'm really glad you like the change! I know the original was boring, but I was solely focused on content, and admittedly a little afraid to make the changes on my own, but I couldn't take it anymore! Still not branded, but at least it's not an eyesore. To be honest, for most of my posts I focused on searches, and forgot about competition - I have been looking at competition with posts I'm writing now so we'll see if things improve. Thanks for the rest of your advice as well.

An experienced marketing person I know recently told me she couldn't find me in the first few pages of Google, and my niche is not one people will keep coming back to, and certainly not buy anything from. If she's right, I'm considering starting a second site that will be an interest, not a passion like animals, and see if money flows that way.

Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to have a look, and offer advice. Cheers, Hindy

Happy to hear you are focused on the competition as well now. Looking forward to hearing about your results.

I have to be honest, your niche does appear like it could be a bit challenging. I picked up secondary keywords like 'food' and 'care', but did not see very high searches even with that. Also not sure what the product review searches are like for your niche.

It's a call you will have to make though.

I wouldn't go so far as changing niche all together, but taking out the 'senior' may be an option if it is still too tough after trying with the competitor analysis?

Good luck!
