WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint – Overview

Web Traffic Blueprint Part 1 - Discover How To Create An Automated Web Traffic-Getting MachineTraffic is the lifeblood of just about every business online.

Finding sustainable strategies to increase visitors to your website is a requirement of building 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 Struggling To Bring Visitors To Their Websites?

If you search for any of the key phrases below in Google …

  • “how to bring more traffic to my web site for free”
  • “how can I get web traffic to my website”
  • “ways to increase more web traffic”
  • “cheapest ways to attract traffic using ads”
  • “need more web visitors”

… and you will be presented with lists of sites that provide tips, tricks, and information about methods to help get more website visitors …

There are lots of strategies to increase your website visitors. This article series will show you how to set up a simple system to take advantage of all these traffic generation strategies!

(There are lots of ways to drive more web traffic to your site. In this article series you will learn how to set up a simple system to benefit from most of these traffic generation methods!)

Clearly, there is no shortage of ways to drive more traffic to your web site. There are thousands of courses and free sites that can teach you methods to increase visitors to your web site.

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

The diagram below shows how many small businesses approach the process of generating traffic to their sites …

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

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

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

Useful Info

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

Outsourcing is useful if you have great systems set up to manage your traffic generation activities already. If not, all you will probably do is end up investing a lot of your valuable time and money searching for a winning traffic method.

Without laying down a solid foundation and putting the right systems in place, online traffic generation can become a costly waste of time and money!

(Without a solid foundation and systems in place, online traffic generation can become very costly!)

Sustainable traffic generation requires laying a solid foundation online, implementing proper systems, testing campaign elements, experimenting with different marketing and promotional services, analyzing results, measuring ROI across different traffic generation methods, etc.

Is There A Way To Automate The Process Of Driving More Website Visitors?

Imagine if all you had to do to automatically deliver targeted traffic to your site was to publish great content consistently.

This is not science fiction … it’s a fact! In fact, many website owners are already doing what we’ve just described … and you can too!

In the Web Traffic Blueprint article series, we will show you the process of setting up an automated traffic generation system that can help deliver new targeted traffic to your website, simply by adding regular content to your web site.

How To Set Up An Automated Traffic Generation System

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

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

Getting continuous web traffic sustainably involves laying a solid foundation online and implementing proper systems

(Getting more web traffic sustainably requires setting up a solid foundation online and putting proper systems in place)

At this point, we’re mostly concerned with Step One. The purpose of our article is to give you an overview 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 share your content to all of your social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.)
  • Gain valuable insights about your traffic generation methods, 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 blog

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

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

What Is An Expertly Configured WordPress Web Site?

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

An ”expertly configured” WordPress website or blog is a blog that is not only powered by the WordPress CMS platform, 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 functionality of WordPress and how it can be integrated with other sites, specifically in areas like SEO, third-party site notification, and analytics.

Why Use An Expertly Configured WordPress-Driven Web Site?

We have published many comprehensive articles on this site about the benefits of using WordPress-powered websites to grow your business online.

Understanding how an “expertly configured” WordPress website will help attract new targeted traffic to your business requires several articles, which is why we recommend that you spend some time reading our content and consider subscribing to our site (this way, we can let you know when we publish a new article).

Let’s start by answering these basic questions:

What makes WordPress so special? What does WordPress offer that other web platforms don’t?

Take a look at the diagram below …

Static vs Expertly Configured WordPress Site

(Static vs Expertly Configured WordPress Website)

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

Think about it … if with a traditional website, all of the content just sits there passively waiting to be found, then the website owner has to actively promote their web presence and its content to continue bringing in web traffic.

WordPress is different!

The WordPress CMS software provides many features that give site owners the ability to set up, configure and build an automated “online 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 new content to start driving your business new 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 …

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 Two 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 – By default, 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 configured for optimal results.
  • Automate – Your traffic machine requires not only internal WordPress settings to be expertly configured but also an expert integration of your built-in WordPress features with third-party tools and other online properties (e.g. webmaster, analytics, and social media accounts).
  • Publicize – After your WordPress site settings have been configured and integrated with various external sites, all you have to do is publish new content on a consistent basis and WordPress will instantly notify and inform search engines, your social media sites and other online properties about the new content, giving your content wider exposure online to more visitors.
  • Optimize – We recommend beginning with a content strategy to build traffic sustainably. With the right systems in place, you can start to track and understand incoming traffic and start gathering valuable information that will allow you to make more intelligent and cost-effective decisions as you expand to different traffic generation methods.
