Creating Traffic with content questions

Postby ranga227 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 10:35 am

This is a quote from willcode4beer on another post..."Create content that is useful and interesting. When you have interesting stuff on your site, folks will naturally link to it. When it has genuinely useful information, people will just link to it."

If I successfully create content that is useful and interesting, what next? How do I best go about getting people to see my content for the first time?
How often do I need to update fresh content to be effective?
Are video's and picture's a must?
Anything else I may be missing?

Also concerning building links for SEO...
I have read on this, but still find myself having trouble getting this aspect going. I've been told that a link page is probable not the best way to go.
If I do not have a link page then where do I put all of the links that I link with?
Should I try and get one-way links from top rated sites and if so how does one do this?
Anything else that I may be missing?

I am going now to read up here and learn what I can. Infact, I am going to devote at least one hour a day on study here and other places reliable people here suggest. I appreciate any help...

It's best to have as much content as possible and fresh is always good. That would most likely be in form of a blog where you post maybe 3-5 times a week. A blog helps you connect with your market.

Images, video and audio is all great. I need to work on ALL three of those LOL

SEO is a complicated thing, well for some like me who took over a year to finally get it. I'm still a bit gray on the back linking aspect of things. BUT on site SEO is making sure you are using keyword phrases that fit into your content. Use it as a title, in the content and as the link. Does this make sense?

I can try to help you if you give me an idea as to what you're working on.

You're right, link pages are really a thing of the past. Exchanging links really doesn't do much these days.

One way links are good, yes! Maybe you could offer to write an article for someone's site or be a guest blogger or something like that.

I'll be happy to help answer your questions as much as I can.

Sorry angie but SEO is not a complicated thing but it has many aspect to reconsider and to play with.

Back to TS problem, everybody says "Content is King" yes it is true.

If I successfully create content that is useful and interesting, what's next?
Then you need to tell the people of the web what you did and how useful or interesting it would be if they read it.

How do I best go about getting people to see my content for the first time?
Just use social bookmarking site and relax, you don't need shout to the world which you cannot do since its a big place (haha)

How often do I need to update fresh content to be effective?
If you can create once a day article then do it, if you don't have enough time then make it once a week.

Are video's and picture's a must?
I do believe you need a picture to get the viewers attention and give a slight idea on what you are talking about

Anything else I may be missing?
A cup of coffee


Just my 2 cents, cheers

Like I said above it was complicated for me to grasp and I have come across a ton of people who say the same thing so I know I'm not alone. BUT now that I have learned about it and have started to understand more about SEO, I can say it's pretty simple once you 'get it'.

Now if it was explained in simple terms when I first started to learn it I would be way further than I am now. Guess you just have to find the right mentor who is willing to explain the basics of SEO step by step.
