WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint – Overview

Web Traffic Blueprint Part 1 - A Complete Guide To Increasing Your Web Visitors AutomaticallyWeb traffic is the lifeblood of almost every business online.

Finding new strategies of getting visitors to your website is essential to running a successful web presence. Getting traffic to a web site is also one of the greatest challenges faced by almost every web site owner.

Why Are So Many Businesses Struggling To Bring More Traffic To Their Web Sites?

Type any of the commonly-searched key phrases below into Google …

  • “how to increase more web traffic to my web site for free”
  • “how can I attract more traffic to my web site”
  • “best ways to get web site traffic”
  • “how to increase more website traffic using Twitter”
  • “free web traffic”

… and you will be presented with loads of information on different methods to help drive more website visitors …

There are loads of strategies to increase web traffic to your web site. This article series will show you how to set up a simple system to benefit from many of these traffic generation methods!

(There are loads of methods to drive more website visitors. This article series will show you how to set up a simple system to take advantage of many of these traffic generation methods!)

There is clearly no shortage of ways to drive more visitors to your site. There are thousands of tutorials and free resources online that can teach you ways to increase traffic to your web site.

The problem often has more to do with businesses not investing enough time into learning how to generate web traffic sustainably, not setting up systems for managing the process effectively, and, in many cases, not even being aware that there are things you can do to automate and leverage your web traffic generation.

The picture below shows the typical approach most small businesses take when it comes to generating traffic to their sites …

This is how most small businesses approach traffic generation

(This is how many web site owners approach the challenge of generating traffic to their sites)

Essentially, the approach many businesses typically take is this: first, you build your website, and then you figure out how to drive traffic to your site.

As you will see in a moment, there is a smarter approach.

Info

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that “outsourcing” your traffic generation will address this problem.

There is nothing wrong with outsourcing if you have systems in place to manage and analyze the results of your traffic generation activities. If not, all you will probably do is end up wasting a lot of valuable time and money searching for a profitable method.

Without a solid foundation and the right systems, website traffic generation can end up becoming a costly waste of time and money!

(Without a solid foundation and the right systems in place, online traffic generation can be a costly waste of time and money!)

Driving continuous web traffic sustainably requires setting up a solid foundation online, putting systems in place, continually testing campaign elements, experimenting with different strategies, tracking results, comparing ROI across different traffic generation strategies, etc.

Is There A Simpler, Automated Way To Generate More Web Visitors?

Imagine if all you had to do to automatically deliver targeted traffic to your website was to regularly add content to your website or blog.

This is not fantasy or fiction … it’s a fact! As a matter of fact, many website owners already have some or all of the basic components set up for this to happen … and you can too!

In the Website Traffic Blueprint article series, we will show you what is required to set up an automated traffic generation system that can begin attracting an ongoing stream of web traffic to your website, simply by publishing new content to your website on a consistent basis.

How To Set Up An Automated Traffic Generation System

As you can see in the diagram below, the web traffic method we present in this article series involves 3 basic steps:

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

To generate sustainable traffic, you first need to put in the right systems

(Sustainable traffic generation requires setting up a solid foundation online and implementing systems)

At this point, we’ll mostly be focusing on Step 1. The aim of this article series is to help you understand how to set up a traffic generation system that will ultimately:

  • Save time using automation and leverage
  • Save money in many different ways
  • Automatically get your web content indexed faster in search engines
  • Instantly share your content to all of your social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, 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

All of the above can be achieved using what we will refer to throughout our article series as an “expertly configured” WordPress site

With an expertly configured WordPress site, you just add new content and your site does the rest, informing other sites about your content and bringing you back traffic!

(With an expertly configured WordPress site, you just add content and your website will do the rest!)

What Is An Expertly Configured WordPress Site?

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

An ”expertly configured” WordPress web site is a blog that is not only powered by WordPress, but has also been expertly set up and configured (either by yourself or professionally) to take full advantage of the tremendous power, ease-of-use and built-in functionality of WordPress and how it can be integrated with various services, specifically in areas like SEO, content syndication, and analytics.

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

We write extensively on this site about the benefits of using WordPress-powered web sites to grow your business online.

Understanding why and how an “expertly configured” WordPress blog can drive targeted traffic to your business requires several article installments, which is why we really recommend that you spend some time reading our other articles and consider subscribing to our site (this way, we can let you know whenever we publish new content on this topic).

Let’s start by addressing a couple of basic questions:

Why does it have 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 Website

(Static Website vs Expertly Configured WordPress Site)

Many websites are built with platforms that create websites with “static” web pages. Essentially, what this means is that your digital content typically sits inside a server waiting to be found. On its own, the static website doesn’t communicate with anything outside the platform; it doesn’t ’ping’ anybody in cyberspace or announce to any other site that new content has recently been added.

Think about it … if in a static website, all of your content just sits there passively waiting to be found, then you have to actively keep promoting your web presence and your content to continue driving new visitors.

WordPress is different!

WordPress provides many features that allow you to set up, configure and build an automated “web traffic generation” machine, where all you then need to do is publish new content and your website will do the rest, instantly notifying various online properties about your new content to start bringing your business more traffic …

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 your automated web traffic system:

  • Setup – Learn the best way to get started if you don’t have a website yet, or if you already have an existing site that may or may not have been built using WordPress.
  • Configure – By default, WordPress already comes with a number of built-in features and settings to help you generate traffic. Learn what features and settings have to be configured for optimal benefit.
  • Automate – Your traffic system not only requires expert configuration of internal WordPress settings but also the expert integration of your site with third-party services and other web properties (e.g. webmaster, analytics, and social media accounts).
  • Publicize – After configuring your WordPress settings and integrating your website with various third-party services, you simply begin to publish new content on a regular basis and WordPress will instantly notify and inform search engines, your social media accounts and other online properties about the new content, giving your content wider online exposure to new visitors.
  • Optimize – We recommend starting with a content-based strategy to build sustainable traffic. With the right systems in place, you can begin to monitor and analyze the traffic generated as a result and gather valuable data that will allow you to make better decisions when expanding to additional traffic generation strategies.
