This post may contain affiliate links so I earn a commission. Please read my disclosure for more info.

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out why your site isn’t making money…

Maybe your site isn’t ranking well…

Maybe it’s ranking okay, but the traffic is still too low…

Maybe the conversion rate is low…

You you followed the guide in blog posts or the process laid out in podcasts, but your site doesn’t seem to get any traffic.

And it’s really discouraging! I’ve been there, too.

Let’s go over 3 things you can do to earn more by getting MORE visitors to your site.

We can look at the lack of growth and the reasons behind it to pinpoint exactly what you can do in order to increase your traffic to your site.

Here are a few techniques that you can use to increase your traffic fairly quickly.

Improve Content

First, there is an ONSITE hack to help you increase traffic (You can start TODAY). You’ll be able to get more traffic even if your rankings don’t go up, but they probably will. 

So, what is this hack?


Yep, it’s as easy as finding posts that already exist on your site that are doing okay, about top 20 in google rankings, and double or triple the content.

Lately, I’ve been hypothesizing that adding content to a post that’s ranking  #1 already is a great way to pull in more long tail traffic. So even if you’re rankings don’t go up (since it’s at the top already), you’ll still get more traffic. The theory is that Google already likes the specific page. This happened during Project Go White Hat.

There are TWO methods of writing content that I really like:

The RPM (Research Paper Method) and the FAQ Method.

Niche Site Content Workshop – Free Training on RPM & FAQ (On Demand)
Check out this training workshop on the RPM & FAQ techniques. You can watch right away… You’ll just need to enter your email address & you’ll be on the email list. I’ll send you a few emails a week & send promos every once in a while.

Each method is a little bit different, so find which one is easiest for you and get started today.

  1. Just pick one of your best ranking posts and add a few hundred words.
  2. Check the traffic and rankings in a few days.
  3. Add more to the same post or move on to another post that’s ranking really well.

Get Some Backlinks

Next, let’s talk about the elephant in the room – BACKLINKS – and why they matter.

We can compare two of the exact same sites, one with backlinks and one without, and we will see that the site with backlinks is going to be ranking a lot better. Google tells us that backlinks are important, just like content.

How do I get backlinks to my niche site?

I like guest posting.

Find blogs to guest post on, and you’re going to see an improvement of the traffic to your site. It may take a while for the links to kick in, like a few weeks or a few months. A few years ago links could improve your rankings fast, but nowadays it can take several months.

I have an example HERE (YouTube) for guest posting with a 15.8% conversion rate and getting 6 guest posts in 6 weeks. And here is the blog post covering the same topic.

Promotion, Outreach, Networking

Lastly, put your boots on the ground and NETWORK. I’ll tell you how you can start today for free and it’s crazy easy. All you have to do is comment on blogs and you start making friends and networking!

I typically aim for a few comments before the owner of the site will start getting to know who you are. There’s no “right” number of comments or interactions so go with what feels right. But remember that the more interaction you have before you ask for anything, the more likely you are to get a guest post.

Once you have a solid relationship established, you can ask if you can guest post on your new “internet” friend’s site. Most people will tell you no, but as long as you get a few people to accept your pitch, you’ll be in good shape.
