When the traffic starts to grow and is not going to decrease, the smile and serotonin level in the blood increases proportionally to the increase in traffic , and in the eyes $$$ get an increasing 3D effect. In simple language, you feel satisfaction, joy, happiness, and you, as they say, rushing ... Вот ... This is the kind of delight I had to go through the other day with a single request.
I have one news site in my arsenal. It is spinning today at TrustLink (TL). There is some traffic . Strong over it, I do not bother. For there are more profitable topics than the media. However, this site serves as a testing ground for “not extreme experiments”, i.e., those that do not affect the site’s presence in TL and other traffic exchange systems. Mostly Ukrainian traffic.
Who does not know , I inform you that in Ukraine hot topics for the current day are related to 1) the Tax Code, 2) the Labor Code and 3) Pension reform (this topic is noisy not only in Ukraine, but also in Europe). Topics are discussed on all major news media portal , in TV news, feature sites, blogs, etc. Because the topics concern all residents We all have lots of questions and everyone is looking for answers.
Periodically I look at LI news statistics. Here are the stats on the threshold of insanity:
As you can see, the increase in traffic on the site , in principle, is not observed. The average rate of traffic varies from 200-300 uni-days.
Where, then, to get the traffic for 1000 unique? The whole secret of “getting into the topic.” If you saddled a hot topic and feed it, then everything will be OK.
And these are the stats after the start of the “madness”:
The increase in traffic was +1200 hosts .
Did I do something special for such traffic? Actually no. Articles were published as usual. However. The article got into a stream of hot topics and all the traffic went from the PS. Exchange traffic here was very low due to the unpopularity of the topic within the traffic exchange system.
December 23, 2010 . Somewhere at 11. 40 in the morning I looked at the stats and was surprised at the increase in traffic in +320 visits compared to the previous day at the same time. It became interesting to me that it had such an effect on the increase in traffic. I open the statistics " for search phrases ” and I see that one request is torn TOP-1. The site on Google position was in 6th place (1. 6). The first three were news. Ukrhome. Net, and the 4th and 5th official website of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
I note that the published article flew into the index instantly. The quick-robot worked.
I looked at the news from ukrhome. net. Nothing special There were almost no text notes on the government website. A simple note about the law, voting, etc. A simple report. ... Competition on request was weak.
December 23, 2010 . Without thinking for a long time, I published another article. I wrote a request from LI in the title. I closed the ending of the title for humanity. In the first paragraphs of the article I highlighted the keywords in bold. I marked them out as well. that I took from LI other requests related to Topov and placed them in the article.
I also corrected the first article. I added a link to a new one. I corrected the text for the official one, taking into account the information from ukrhome and the BP website. Checked all over again. Published.
In less than an hour, a new article hit the TOP-1 by Google. Now my site is on the 4th, 5th and 6th positions, bringing down the government site of BP. And one URL (6th position) came to the tag. Of the 10 places in the TOP-1, my site occupied three. Not bad.
The new article pulled up a few more requests related to the new bill. There are new opportunities to pull up the site on the 1st place in the TOP-1 and grab a very fat piece on this topic.
Once again I am convinced of the effective use of LI statistics. It shows live queries that enter the user. Sometimes it’s just enough to write optimized articles for statistics requests. Why invent a bicycle? ... You look at the search queries provided by mail statistics. ru. A lot will find useful.
It is clear that my real example is very simple. Someone may say that I was lucky. Is it? My website is themed and PS knows it. This played a big role in ranking the site. And the more thematic requests are spinning on the site, the more pleasant it is to PS.
