Using Google Alerts To Increase Website Traffic

Not too many people know the advantages of using Google alerts to increase website traffic. I have been using it for a few months now, and I totally love it. It helps me find relevant blogs, websites, or even Groups for keywords that I set up in my alerts, and Google sends me these results directly to my email every day.

For those who don’t know what Google Alerts is, and how you can use them to increase website traffic to your websites or blogs, let me explain to you quickly what it is, and what it can do for you and your SEO.

Google Alerts is a notification / Alert system that Google has set up so you can receive email alerts from Google when ever Google finds specific website pages that you define in your Alert. What these alerts contain are specific keyword terms that you want to keep up on events for.

For example, with the Winter Olympics taking place starting Feb. 11 2010, you can set up an Alert for the keyword term “Winter Olympics” in Quotes, and whenever Google finds that exact keyword term on websites that it crawls, you will receive an email alert about it. Pretty easy to understand, and a very powerful SEO tool that you could use to increase your website traffic and search engine ranking by building super targeted back links.

There are 6 different types of alerts that you can set up:

  1. News
  2. Blogs
  3. Web
  4. Comprehensive
  5. Video
  6. Groups

Each type of Alert is pretty self explanatory but, you can read the Google Alerts Help page for more information about using the Google Alert system.

Now, to increase your website traffic and build targeted back links to help you rank better in the search engines, setup a Google Alert for your main keywords that you want to rank for, and use the types Blogs and Groups. When Google finds your keywords on these types of websites, you will receive an email with a link to the page your keyword was found on.

The reason you want these two is simple. You can post comments on Blog and Groups. See where I am going with this, and do you understand how to increase website traffic using this powerful Google Alerts Feature?

We all know that in order to rank better and to increase website traffic from the search engines, we need relevant back links, and this is the best way to find them with little to no work.

I think that the Google Alerts is one of the best ways to increase website traffic and build yourself some powerful back links pointing back to your website.

Go setup your Google alert, start building your back links and increase website traffic to your blogs or websites today.

Increasing Website Traffic – Search Engines

December 16th, 2009 1 comment

Increasing Website Traffic coming from the search engines is actually pretty easy if you know what needs to be done so you can get ranked by the search engines.

Search engines are the best resources that you can use to increase website traffic, and with this blog post, I hope to show you how to increase website traffic for free using the search engines.

So lets get started…

The first and foremost important thing you need to do is some keyword research on a niche topic that you know something about. Your basic knowledge about the topic does not have to be lots, just enough to write a short 200 – 300 blog post or even an article to post to different article directories.

So lets get started so we can increase website traffic to your web sites.

First, head on over to the Google Keyword Tool website and type in a search phrase that you would like to get website traffic for. For this example, I am going to use the pets niche and do a search for popular dog breeds.

Popular Dog Breeds

Popular Dog

 As you can see from the above image, the search term Popular Dog Breeds gets searched for approximately 8,100 times per month on Google.

Now the next step that we must do is find out what kind of competition we have on Google for this term.

Make a quick search on Google for your search term in quotes this time like this – “Popular Dog Breeds” and you should get a result something like the image below.

With over 69,000 unique competing pages, this search term might be a little hard to rank for and increase your website traffic, just keep on doing your keyword research like above and try to find a highly searched term that has less than 10,000 competing pages.

Keep in mind that you can do this for any niche that you want to increase website traffic to your website for. Just do your research, write some blog posts about all the related terms for your keyword, and before you know it, you will be getting free website traffic from the search engines.
