WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint – Overview

WordPress Website Traffic Blueprint Part 1 - Learn How To Automatically Increase Your Website Visitors For Your Business With WordPressJust about every single business needs traffic to survive online.

Finding cost-effective strategies to get visitors to your website is one of the most important skills of growing a business online successfully. Increasing traffic to a web site is also one of the biggest challenges faced by most website owners.

Why Are So Many Businesses Struggling To Get More Traffic To Their Websites?

If you type any of the key phrases below into Google …

  • “how to increase more visitors to my web site”
  • “how can I attract more web traffic to my web site for free”
  • “ways to drive web traffic”
  • “need to increase web site traffic using YouTube”
  • “need web traffic”

… and you will find lists of sites offering you tips, tricks, and information on strategies to help you drive more website visitors …

There are many methods to get more web traffic to your web site. This article series will show you how to set up a simple system to take advantage of many of these traffic generation strategies!

(There are many ways to drive more website visitors. In this article series you will learn how to set up a system to benefit from all these traffic generation strategies!)

There is clearly no shortage of ways to drive traffic to your website. There are tons of courses and free resources that can teach you strategies to get more traffic to your website.

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

The diagram below shows how many businesses approach the process of generating website traffic …

This is how most web site owners approach traffic generation

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

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

Info

You shouldn’t make the mistake of thinking that ”outsourcing” your traffic generation to experts will address this problem.

Outsourcing is great if you have the systems in place to manage your traffic generation campaigns already. If not, you will probably end up spending a lot of your time and money looking for a winning method that can consistently deliver you a positive ROI.

Without laying down a solid foundation and putting the right systems in place, online traffic generation can be very costly!

(Without laying down a solid foundation and putting proper systems, online traffic generation can end up becoming a costly waste of time and money!)

Getting web traffic sustainably requires setting up a solid foundation online, putting proper systems in place, testing campaign elements, experimenting with different marketing and promotional methods, tracking results, measuring ROI across different traffic generation strategies, and so on.

Is There A Simple, Automated Way To Get Traffic?

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

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

In our article series, you will learn what is required to set up an automated traffic system that can help begin to drive targeted visitors to your site, simply by publishing new content to your website on a consistent basis.

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

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

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

To generate sustainable web traffic, you need to first set up the right systems

(Driving more web traffic sustainably requires setting up a solid foundation online and implementing the right systems)

Right now, we’ll mostly be focusing on Step 1. The purpose of this article is to lay the foundations of a traffic generation system that will ultimately help you:

  • Save time using automation and leverage
  • Save money by starting simple and scaling things as you grow
  • Automatically notify search engines
  • Instantly notify and publicize your content to all of your social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.)
  • Gain valuable insights 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 in this article series as an “expertly configured” WordPress web site

With an expertly configured WordPress website, you simply add content and WordPress will then do the rest, informing the world about your new content and bringing you back web traffic!

What Is An Expertly Configured WordPress Website?

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

An expertly configured WordPress site is a blog that is not only built with the WordPress CMS, but has also been expertly set up and configured (either by yourself or professionally) to take full advantage of the tremendous power, features and functionality of WordPress and its integration with other sites, specifically in areas like search engine optimization, content syndication, and analytics.

Why Use An Expertly Configured WordPress Website?

We have published many excellent articles on this site about the benefits and advantages of choosing the WordPress platform to grow your business online.

Understanding how an “expertly configured” WordPress site will help begin delivering web traffic to your business requires several articles, which is why we really recommend that you spend some time reading our other articles and consider subscribing to our site (this way, you will be informed whenever we publish new information on this topic).

Let’s begin by answering some basic questions:

Why use WordPress to set up an automated traffic generation system? What does WordPress provide that other web platforms don’t?

Take a look at the diagram below …

Static vs Expertly Configured WordPress Site

(Static Website vs Expertly Configured WordPress Site)

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

Think about it … if with a traditional website, your content just sits in a server passively waiting to be found, then you have to actively promote your web presence and your content to maintain web visitors coming.

WordPress is different!

The WordPress CMS software provides many features that allow site owners to set up, configure and build an automated “web traffic generation” machine, where all you then have to do is post new content and WordPress does the rest, immediately notifying various online properties about your site to drive you more web site 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 …

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 Two of The Web Traffic Blueprint overview, we explain the components of this automated online 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 that can help you generate traffic. Learn what features and settings have to be expertly configured for optimal benefit.
  • Automate – Your traffic system not only requires expert configuration of internal WordPress settings but also integrating your site’s built-in functionality with external tools and other sites (e.g. webmaster, analytics, and social media accounts).
  • Publicize – Once your WordPress site settings have been configured and integrated with various third-party services, you then begin to publish new content consistently and WordPress will immediately notify and inform search engines, your social media accounts and other online properties about the new content, giving your site wider exposure online to new visitors.
  • Optimize – We recommend starting with a content marketing strategy to build sustainable traffic. With the right systems in place, you can also begin tracking and understanding your incoming traffic and gather valuable data that will allow you to make more intelligent and cost-effective decisions when using other traffic generation strategies.
