WordPress Web Site Traffic Blueprint Part 1 - Discover How To Turn Your WordPress Website Into An Automated Traffic Generation MachineTraffic is the lifeblood of just about every single business online.

Knowing how to drive more visitors to your website is one of the fundamental skills of running a successful web presence. Lack of website visitors is also one of the most common complaints made by website owners everywhere.

Why Are So Many Businesses Having Difficulty Getting More Traffic To Their Web Sites?

Search for any of the phrases below in Google …

  • “how to drive visitors to my site for free”
  • “how do I bring more visitors to my website”
  • “best 10 resources to increase more traffic”
  • “need to get website visitors using Pinterest”
  • “attract more traffic to my website”

… and you will be presented with loads of information on methods to help you get more visitors to your web site …

There are lots of methods to increase your website visitors. This article series is designed to help you set up a system to take advantage of most of these traffic generation methods!

(There are loads of ways to get more web traffic to your web site. This article series will show you 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 loads of tutorials and free resources online that can show you how to bring more visitors to your website.

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

The diagram below shows the typical approach most businesses take when it comes to generating web traffic …

This is how most businesses approach the challenge of generating traffic to their sites

(This is how many site owners approach traffic generation)

Essentially, the approach most businesses typically take is this: first, you get your website, and then you figure out ways of driving traffic to it.

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

Important

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

Outsourcing is useful if you already have the systems in place to manage and analyze the results of your traffic generation activities. If not, you will probably end up spending a lot of time and money looking for a winning traffic method.

Without a solid foundation and the right systems, online traffic generation can end up being a costly activity!

(Without laying down a solid foundation and putting the right systems in place, traffic generation can end up being a costly waste of time and money!)

Increasing web traffic sustainably involves laying a solid foundation online, putting proper systems in place, testing campaign variables, experimenting with different marketing and promotional methods, analyzing results, measuring ROI across different traffic generation methods, etc.

Is There A Way To Automate The Process Of Getting More Web Visitors?

Imagine owning a website where all you had to do to automatically attract targeted traffic to your web site was to publish content consistently.

This is not fantasy or science fiction … it’s a fact! In fact, many website owners already have some or all of the basic components in place to profit from the automated traffic system we have just described … and so can you!

In our Website Traffic Blueprint article series, we will show you how to set up an automated traffic generation machine that can help begin attracting web traffic to your web site, simply by publishing content on a consistent basis to your website.

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

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 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. Add new traffic strategies and test

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

(Getting consistent web traffic sustainably involves setting up a solid foundation online and implementing systems)

Right now, we’re mostly concerned with Step One. The purpose of our article is to lay the foundations of a traffic generation system that will ultimately help your business:

  • Save time using leverage and automation
  • Save money by starting with a very simple setup and scaling up only when it makes sense to do this
  • Automatically get your web content indexed faster in search engines
  • Instantly notify and publicize your content to all of your social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, 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 throughout our article series as an “expertly configured” WordPress site

With an expertly configured WordPress site, you just publish new content and your website will then do the rest!

(With an expertly configured WordPress website, you simply post content and WordPress does the rest, notifying other sites about your new content and bringing you back traffic!)

An Expertly Configured WordPress Website – What Is It?

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

An expertly configured WordPress website is a website or blog that is not only powered by WordPress, but has also been expertly set up and configured (either by yourself or professionally) to take advantage of the tremendous power, features and built-in functionality of WordPress and the way it can be integrated with other services, specifically in areas like SEO, content syndication, and reporting.

Why Use An Expertly Configured WordPress Site?

We write extensively on this site about the benefits of using WordPress-driven websites to grow your business online.

Understanding why and how an “expertly configured” WordPress website or blog can instantly attract an ongoing stream of targeted traffic to your business requires several articles, which is why we highly recommend that you spend some time reading our content and subscribe to this site (this way, we can let you know when a new article is published).

Let’s start by answering some basic questions:

Why WordPress? What does WordPress offer that other web platforms don’t?

Take a look at the diagram below …

Static vs Expertly Configured WordPress Website

(Static Website vs Expertly Configured WordPress Website)

Many sites are built with platforms that create “static” websites. Essentially, what this means is that the content files mostly sit inside your server waiting to be found. A static website doesn’t communicate with anyone outside its platform; it doesn’t send out ’pings’ to anybody in cyberspace or notify any other website when new content has been added to your site.

Think about it … if in a static website, your content simply sits in a server passively waiting to be found, then you have to keep promoting your site and your content to maintain new web visitors coming.

WordPress is different!

The WordPress platform comes with powerful built-in functionality that gives you the ability to set up, configure and build an automated “online traffic generation” machine, where all you then need to do is add content and your website does the rest, immediately notifying various online properties about your new content to drive you more website visitors …

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 Site Traffic Blueprint overview, we explain the components of your automated online traffic machine:

  • 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 – 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 configured for optimal benefit.
  • Automate – Your traffic system requires not only internal WordPress settings to be configured but also an expert integration of your WordPress functionality with third-party services and other online properties (e.g. webmaster, analytics, and social media accounts).
  • Publicize – Once configuring your site settings and integrating your website with various external sites, you then begin to publish new content on a consistent basis and WordPress will immediately notify and inform search engines, your social media sites and other online properties about the new content, giving your content wider exposure online to new targeted visitors.
  • Optimize – We recommend starting with a content strategy to build sustainable traffic. With the right systems in place, you can also begin monitoring and analyzing incoming traffic and gather valuable data that will allow you to make smarter decisions when using new traffic generation strategies.
