WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint – Overview

WordPress Web Traffic Blueprint Part 1 - Learn How To Turn Your Website Into An Automated Traffic Generation MachineAlmost every business needs a regular stream of new visitors to grow online.

Learning sustainable ways of getting visitors to your website is a requirement of growing a business online successfully. Lack of website visitors is also one of the most common complaints made by website owners everywhere.

Why Do So Many Businesses Have Difficulty Driving More Visitors To Their Websites?

Type any of the searches below into Google …

  • “get web traffic to your website for free”
  • “how can I drive more web traffic to my website”
  • “best 5 ways to attract more visitors”
  • “how to attract traffic using StumbleUpon”
  • “get traffic to your website”

… and you will be immediately presented with loads of information about ways to drive more traffic to your web site …

There are many methods to get more web traffic to your website. In this article series you will learn how to set up a simple system to benefit from most of these traffic generation strategies!

(There are lots of ways to get more website visitors. This article series will show you how to set up a simple system to benefit from all these traffic generation methods!)

Clearly, there is no shortage of ways to drive visitors to your site. There are thousands of products and free sites online that can teach you how to drive more visitors to your site.

The problem is often more to do with business owners not investing sufficient time into learning how to generate new traffic sustainably, not setting up systems that allow them to manage the traffic generation process effectively, and, in many cases, not even being aware that there are several ways to automate and leverage your web traffic generation.

The illustration below shows how most businesses typically approach the challenge of generating traffic to their sites …

(This is how many web site owners approach the challenge of generating website traffic)

Essentially, the approach many small businesses typically take is this: first, you build a website, and then you figure out ways of driving traffic to the site.

As we will show you in just a moment, there is a better approach.

Important Info

Don’t make the mistake of believing that ”outsourcing” your traffic generation to experts will eliminate this problem.

There is nothing wrong with outsourcing if you have great systems in place to manage and process information about your traffic generation activities already. If not, all you will probably do is end up investing a lot of time and money looking for a positive ROI strategy.

Without a solid foundation and the right systems in place, online traffic generation can end up being a costly waste of time and money!

(Without laying down a solid foundation and putting the right systems in place, website traffic generation can end up becoming very costly!)

Getting web traffic sustainably requires laying a solid foundation online, implementing systems, testing variables in your campaigns, experimenting with different advertising and promotional strategies, analyzing results, measuring ROI across different traffic generation strategies, and so on.

Is There A Simpler, Automated Way To Generate Traffic?

Imagine if you owned a website where all you had to do to automatically deliver new visitors to your site was to regularly add content to your web site.

This is not science fiction or fantasy … it’s a fact! In fact, many website owners are currently doing this … and so can you!

In our article series, you will discover what you need to do to set up an automated traffic system that can help begin delivering an ongoing stream of web traffic to your business, simply by adding regular content to your website.

How To Set Up A System That Will Automatically Help Bring Traffic To Your Site

As you can see in the diagram below, the web traffic method we discuss in this article series involves three basic steps:

  1. Set up specific systems to lay down a solid foundation for driving sustainable web traffic
  2. Add web content on a regular basis to drive visitors and generate web traffic data organically
  3. Add other traffic strategies

Sustainable traffic generation involves laying a solid foundation online and implementing systems

(To get sustainable web traffic, you first need to put in the right systems)

Right now, we’ll mostly be focusing on Step 1. The purpose of our article series is to provide an overview of how to set up a traffic generation system that will ultimately help your business:

  • Save time using leverage and automation
  • Save money by starting simple and scaling up cost-effectively
  • Automatically notify search engines
  • Instantly notify and publicize your content to all of your social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.)
  • Access valuable data about your traffic generation strategies, analyze results, measure ROI, etc.
  • Outsource traffic generation while maintaining full control of the process
  • Grow your business online cost-effectively and sustainably

You can achieve all of the above using what we will refer to throughout our article series as an “expertly configured” WordPress website

With an expertly configured WordPress website, you simply post new content and WordPress does the rest!

(With an expertly configured WordPress web site, you just post content and your website will then do the rest, notifying other sites about your new content and bringing you back web traffic!)

An Expertly Configured WordPress Website – What Is It?

An expertly configured WordPress website or blog is not the same thing as a professionally-configured WordPress website.

An expertly configured WordPress blog is a website or blog that is not only built using WordPress, but has also been expertly set up and configured (either by yourself or professionally) to take advantage of the enormous power, ease-of-use and functionality of WordPress and the way it integrates with various sites, specifically in areas like search engine optimization, content syndication, and analytics.

Why Do I Need An Expertly Configured WordPress-Powered Web Site?

We provide a number of comprehensive articles on this site about using the WordPress CMS to grow your business online.

Understanding why and how an “expertly configured” WordPress website or blog can be used to set up an automated traffic generation system requires a number of articles, which is why we strongly recommend that you spend some time reading our other articles and subscribe to our site (this way, we can let you know when we publish new content on this topic).

Let’s start by answering some basic questions:

Why does it need to be WordPress? What does WordPress do that other web platforms don’t?

Take a look at the picture below …

Static vs Expertly Configured WordPress Site

(Static Website vs Expertly Configured WordPress Website)

Many websites are traditionally built on applications that create “static” websites. Essentially, this means that your website content just sits inside the server waiting to be discovered. On its own, the static website doesn’t communicate with anything else outside the application; it doesn’t ’ping’ anybody in the cybersphere or inform any other site that new content has recently been added to your site.

Think about it … if with a traditional website, all of your content just sits in a server passively waiting to be found, then you have to continually promote your site and your content to maintain web traffic coming.

WordPress is different!

The WordPress platform comes with powerful built-in functionality that lets you set up, configure and build an automated “web traffic generation” machine, where all you then need to do is publish new content and your site will do the rest, immediately notifying various online properties about your site to automatically start driving you more website visitors …

An Automated Content Distribution, Traffic And Lead Generation, And Sales & Marketing System

With an expertly configured WordPress site, you can build more than just a website for your business … you can set up an automated traffic and lead generation and sales & marketing system, where all you do is publish your content and WordPress then automates the rest …

As your business evolves, you can add more functionality and automate processes like:

You can do all of this using inexpensive WordPress plugins. Once these plugins are installed and configured on your site, just direct your visitors to the appropriate sections (e.g. your store, subscription forms, membership area, etc.)

The video below shows you what an expertly configured WordPress site can do for your business …

In Part 2 of The Website Traffic Blueprint overview, we break down the components of this automated web traffic machine:

  • Setup – Learn the best way to get started if you don’t have a web presence yet, or if you already have an existing site that may or may not have been built using WordPress.
  • Configure – WordPress already comes with a number of built-in features and settings to help you generate traffic. Learn what features and settings need to be expertly configured for optimal results.
  • Automate – Your traffic machine not only requires expert configuration of internal WordPress settings but also the integration of your built-in WordPress features with 3rd-party tools and other online properties (e.g. webmaster, analytics, and social media accounts).
  • Publicize – After your site settings have been configured and integrated with various external tools, you simply begin to publish new content on a regular basis and WordPress will immediately notify and inform search engines, your social media accounts and other online properties about the new content, giving your content wider online exposure to potential visitors.
  • Optimize – We recommend beginning with a content-focused strategy to build sustainable traffic. With the right systems in place, you can also begin tracking and understanding the traffic generated as a result and gather valuable data that will allow you to make better decisions when using new traffic generation strategies.
