How to Legally Steal Google Traffic
You can benefit from Google’s massive visitor flow without actually ranking in the top ten for a search term on Google yourself. Here are a couple of ways that you can ‘borrow existing Google Traffic’ from sites that already rank in the top ten.
There are several little known ways that you can easily piggyback on the traffic that the sites at the top are receiving.
Getting top ten rankings yourself can be an expensive and time consuming pastime, so instead why not consider some or all of the strategies below and benefit from the traffic without the hard work!?
There are infact many ways to appear in the top ten Google results, including;
- Organic rankings
- Paid Adwords rankings
- Google Shopping
- Google Places/Local
- Google News
- Google Blogs
- Google Images
Each of these will give you the opportunity to catch your share of the traffic available for any keyword or search term. For various searches, Google will include entries from all of the above sources, so you can harness Google traffic without having a traditional ‘organic’ ranking.
In addition to these, you can also piggyback on the sites that are already ranking in the top ten for competitive search terms. You can do this in several ways.
The first technique to piggyback on and ‘steal’ some traffic from the sites already ranking is to look at each top ten ranking site in turn. You are looking for any of these sites that are displaying Google Ads on the page.
If they are displaying Google Ads, then you can specify in your Google Adwords account (Display Ads section) that you want your Ad to appear on thay specific website. If you build up a list of potential pages that you want your Ads to appear on, rather than opting for blanket advertising, then you will be targeting your Ads towards just the keywords that you want to be found for.
This is a very focused way to pinpoint the traffic you want to ‘steal’.
The second method of legally stealing some top ten Google traffic is to search the top ten results looking for blog entries with open comments. It is your aim to add your link to as many top ten ranking sites as you can.
To do this effectively, you need to engage with the blog owner so that they trust your motives.
A few important points to consider here. Firstly, most blogs that rank in the top ten are actively managed and looked after, so they will be moderated. If you want to get your link added to a high ranking blog comment section, a good technique is to reference their post from a relevant page on your blog first.
If both your blog and theres are WordPress, then when you create your link, the other blog will receive a ‘Trackback’ link notification via their blog comments. The downside is that many bloggers are unfamiliar with Trackback links and so don’t understand them when they see them in their comments section.
A trackback link will appear in your comments section as a partial quotation from the blog in question, wrapped in square brackets [ ] …… this differentiates trackbacks from standard comments.
Trackbacks work well because they automatically add your link to the blog that you reference from your post when you link to it.
When you link to an external blog, you should select ‘open link in a new window’ as your preferred option so that your visitors won’t be totally leaving your site if they click on the link. Your post will still be open in their browser.
Once you have created a link referencing a high ranking blog, you should then comment of their page, telling them that you have linked to them from your related post and why you have.
All blog owners want people to link to their content, and most receive more comment spam than they do real comments, so make your a good quality comment, saying why you have referenced their post and how their information will help your visitors.
The majority of high ranking blogs are actively managed, so within a few days you should see your comment being approved and there you have it, a link form a high ranking themed blog….. and your opportunity to ‘steal’ some of their Google traffic.
As with all things, the quality of your comment is what will make the difference for you between being approved and not. If your comment is just a sales pitch for your blog then it is less likely to work than if it is focused on the blog in question. Make sure that you add to their conversation and you will more than likely be approved.
How do you know if the blog is a wordpress one?
The easiest way to findout if you are looking at a wordpress blog is to right click on the blog…. then click ‘view page source’…..
If the blog isn’t a WordPress blog then creating a trackback link is a more complex process, and on blogs such as Blogger, is currently not an option.
Your quest from sites you can piggyback on should begin with detailed keyword research for your niche. First you want to develop a list of the keywords that already have lots of traffic, then you can explore each keyword to find sites with Google Ads and Blogs with open comments that you can contact.
If you apply this strategy across many keywords, and as many sites and blogs as you can find, you will soon have a significant traffic stream without actually ranking for any of those keywords yourself.
