How To Get Traffic Without SEO

Comments Off on How To Get Traffic Without SEO

If you are having trouble getting on the first page of Google, you may want to know how to get traffic without using SEO. Search engine optimization is definitely the best way to get a lot of long-term traffic, provided you know what you are doing.

From all predictions, Google is moving towards only showing big businesses on the first page of the most profitable niches, and unless you have the money to pay a top quality SEO company to make you look like a big business, then you may need to think about alternative ways to generate traffic to your site.

The obvious second choice is Facebook, or rather social marketing as a whole. People spend more time on Facebook than the next three most visited sites combined. They aren’t necessarily there to look at ads, but if you develop your products right from the start based on the market, rather than the keywords you can compete for, then you will have a winning plan for social promotion.

Social marketing is easy to do, if you know how.








Traffic Without SEO

What is the easiest way to get traffic from social sites? Well, you can buy software that automatically follows people, and then un-follows those that aren’t following back on Twitter, or you can simply buy Twitter followers for less than a cent each, right here on Professional Social Promotion.

You can also buy Facebook page likes for less than five cents each, among other things, check out the home page for more details.

Now the benefit with social promotion, is that you don’t have to worry about keywords. It makes no difference what you are trying to sell, as to how much you pay for an ad on Facebook Ads, or how many Twitter followers you can buy, or whatever.

You have to have something that appeals to the general population of business website owners, or regular people that are going to be looking at your shares.

You could go after any market you want, like the make money niche, or the weight loss niche. You could try video games, dating, you get the idea. When you’re not worried about SEO, you can focus on whatever will result in the most amount of sales to regular people, and give you the highest return on investment.

As an example, I saw a Clickbank product that was Forex software that had an average re-bill sale of $1,000. Not that everyone is interested in that, but the profit makes it well worth the money you spend on buying social connections and shares.

It’s cheaper than Google Adwords by a long way, you just have to understand how to appeal to regular people. If you are trying to sell insurance, then maybe social media isn’t for you, and you should try SEO or pay per click advertising.

I hope that explains how to get traffic without SEO, it’s a different market, requiring a different mindset to the keyword-based one that people have for Google. You can compete for any niche you want, so it’s about picking the best one. If you would like to talk about how to get traffic to your site, send me a message at

SEO is overrated, and social promotion is a good alternative.

Does SEO Even Work Anymore?

Comments Off on Does SEO Even Work Anymore?

Many people are starting to wonder if SEO even works anymore, as many of the traditional back link building techniques like article syndication, social bookmarking, blog commenting and forum posting aren’t as effective as they were even a few months ago.

The basic idea is, that Google is no longer placing much emphasis on back links for determining the ranking of a site unless they are authority, relevant, quality links.

Why did Google make this change to their algorithms? It’s simple, their search results were getting clogged up with spam crap that was only made to function as a back link, and so they have punished a lot of content farms, where the majority of content was only written for the purpose of making an SEO back link.

What does this mean for people trying to get on the first page of Google? Well, you have to try a bit harder to make quality back links, or you have to make quality content.

What it also means, is that nobody really knows what it means, and I could give you advice that could be out of date within a few months.

Is SEO effective anymore?











Does SEO Still Work?

Basically, you are better off focusing on on-page optimization, and writing long pages full of relevant, interesting text.

If you make a page that has quality information, such as a list of resources, you may get people linking to it because it’s good.

This is what Google wants to see, but more importantly, they want to see that it looks natural, and doesn’t look like you did it yourself.

I find that one of the most important factors in ranking is the amount you publish on your site, and that’s why I am writing this blog post now.

I get most of my traffic from social promotion on sites like Twitter, so for me, Google is a secondary concern, or I’m not all that worried about it right now, but I figure if I keep writing quality content, and getting on the first page of specific searches, I will gradually build up my traffic from them.

I’m not sure if this is accurate, but my Counterize traffic stats say that SEO is the third highest referring keyword to this site, so I guess that means I’m somewhere in that search, which is not bad, considering I didn’t try very hard to get that.

As I said before, I get thousands upon thousands of hits from Twitter, and if you want to buy some cheap traffic from social promotion, get in contact via the home page, or sign up to the newsletter to get free internet marketing training, so you can do what I do yourself.

I don’t really know how SEO works anymore, if I do, then I just told you as much as I know, which isn’t much. Anyone who says they know more than that, may be pulling your leg.

SEO is not the same as it used to be, and social signals are more important.


Comments Off on SEO vs SMO

SEO Versus SMO

What are the benefits of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) versus SMO (Social Media Optimization)?

Google is still the number one way to drive traffic to a site, provided you are on the first page of a popular search, or the first page of many specific searches.

If you aren’t an SEO expert, up to date with the latest changes in the algorithms of Google, then you may not even get one click.

If nobody is searching for your keyword, or your product, then you have no chance at all of getting traffic from SEO, and the next best solution is SMO.

What is the difference between SEO and SMO?








The Benefits of SMO

Social media optimization is about reaching your target audience on social sites like Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, You Tube, Digg, or even a dating site like Plenty of Fish, if you pay for an ad there.

There are counless ways to go about it, you can make a Facebook page and buy likes, or make lots of friends.

You can get thousands of Twitter followers on a site like Twiends, (that’s where most of my traffic comes from), or you can pay to have someone else share your site to their friends and followers.

That’s what Professional Social Promotion does, we share your site to our friends and followers, or outsource social promotion for you on micro job sites.

When you consider that some people pay one or two dollars per click on Google Adwords, or spend thousands on an SEO company, SMO or a social promotion campaign can be a hundred times cheaper, and just as effective.

If you want to learn to do it yourself, we teach SEO, and SMO in the free internet marketing training you get when you sign up to the newsletter.

What exactly is social media optimization, or SMO?

Should You Focus On SEO?

Comments Off on Should You Focus On SEO?


Is SEO really the most important thing to focus on, when getting traffic for your business?

I can answer that quicky: yes if you’re an SEO expert, constantly up to date with the latest algorithm changes in Google, and no if you’re not.

What happens when you focus too much on SEO and Google? You narrow your focus to only making sites about keywords with low competition.

Instead of picking a name for your site like make money now, you pick a niche that has much lower search volumes, so you have some chance of getting on the first page of Google.

Google is the number one driver of traffic, but it’s not the only way, and with almost every other traffic driving method, you’re better off picking a niche with widespread appeal.

If you focus on SEO alone, you may not even get any traffic at all, but if you focus on other traffic building methods, you are guaranteed to get viewers.







Alternatives to SEO

The number two most visited site in the world is Facebook, and when you pay for an ad on Facebook Ads, it makes no difference what your keyword is, just the targeting, and click through rate.

You can make a Facebook page, and pay to get likes for it, or pay people to share it with their friends.

There are countlesss micro job sites where you can pay people a few cents to tweet, share, like, digg and stumble your site, and this gets you traffic much cheaper.

What we do here at Professional Social Promotion is offer these social promotion services through our own social connections to start with, but if you want more than that, we can also manage a social marketing campaign for you by outsourcing cheap clicks through micro job sites like Microworkers.

If you would prefer to handle it yourself, just sign up to the newsletter to get free internet marketing training, teaching you everything that we do, but why bother, when we do it for you, at an affordable price?

I hope I answered the question, I don’t think you should focus on SEO by itself, as it takes years to learn properly, and sometimes it costs a lot of money too, if you hire an SEO company.

Many people tend to focus only on SEO, when they really should be taking a look at the countless other methods of generating traffic for a site.
