Why is Google Traffic Important?

First, in foremost, Google traffic is important to me because I’m a freelance writer. If you’d like to see all the different ways I make money view here. Basically, I write articles for clients with the aesthetic that it will improve their SEO. My blog shows my lifestyle and home life, all while balancing a client portfolio. I’ve created a special sector for writers as well as those searching for writers.

Where there's work, there's coffee. Keep your Google traffic consistent and watch your blog grow.

In a sea full of information, having a website that is search engine optimized (as well as site mapped correctly) will help you gain new clients on a more consistent basis. I prove the success of my writing services because local potential clients find me by using Google, so they know that my services work. If I can SEO for me, I can SEO for them.  Although I still like to use social media for some page views and reach, I do not have a dependency on it. SEO is my true bread and butter.

Google traffic stays consistent even when I ignore social media.

During Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, I took a few weeks off to evacuate and recover. I did not participate in my mom life groups and went MIA on social media. Regardless, I still had over 200 new users a week to my blog. Google traffic keeps my blog alive even when I’m overwhelmed and don’t feel like posting elsewhere. I don’t have to spend as much time promoting and worrying about my posts, I let Google do it for me.

I get to live in both worlds.

By relying on Google traffic, instead of share groups and social media, I essentially get to live the best of two separate worlds. I’m at liberty to write letters to moms with small children, yet still, market myself a strategic freelancer. My Instagram feed will make you laugh and cry with stories of motherhood and its challenges, while my blog hones in on my writing services. It’s a fine line to tailor the words to work with dual purposes, but it’s completely doable.

Bloom where you are planted. Use Google traffic to grow your blog.

Now, granted, I understand many advise to niche down and focus on one subject. The truth was, it wasn’t leading me to clients. I had this awesome skill that no one knew about since all my social media focused on the joys of being a mom. Furthermore, I purposely did not change my social media because it was a real part of me and true to my mission to use the power of words to encourage others.  As a result, I redirected the focus of my blog’s SEO and reached my both goals.

Let’s discuss some analytics.

Here are a few screenshots of my Google traffic after taking a 3-week hiatus. Each will be discussed more in depth down below.

Google Acquisition and Google Traffic

As you can see, from October 5th to October 11th, Google traffic provided more than half of my page views. The goal conversion rate is at 0% because I don’t use analytics to track my goals. Having page views from organic search leads to higher conversions and provides users that actually want to read your material. They searched specifically for a certain topic to find me. It wasn’t clickbait or misleading pictures, it was actual Google search. For a freelance writer looking to get hired, that is gold.

Analytics sources and Goggle traffic. Over 200 new users a week.

This next picture shows acquisition. In the same 6 day period, over 200 new users visited my site using Google search. That is great news. I have found a way to be fresh in someone else’s eyes. New users mean new connections and consistent growth. In a future post, I will explain how to foster the relationships with your return audience. For now, we’ll focus on new users via Google traffic.

It’s not all about numbers.

Keep in mind my goals do not revolve around numbers. My focus goes to finding the right clients and making conversions. I’ve fostered long-lasting relationships with my VIP clients, helping with editing before a first book launch, all the way to the book being nationally recognized. While there are tactical ways to boost your page views, this post focuses instead on their consistency. So, keep in mind, especially if you are just starting out, numbers are only a small snippet of the bigger picture.

Just keep typing. Search engine optimization is important to get more Google traffic.

How to apply search engine optimization to gain consistent Google traffic:

  1. The first paragraph counts the most. It should explain your post’s full intention.
  2. Additionally, the first paragraph should include your article’s focus keyword(s).
  3. Write using consistency and repeat your focus keyword(s).
  4. Also, make sure to write effectively for the audience you desire.
  5. Tag your post with the same focus keyword(s) you used throughout the post.
  6. Add a meta description that includes your focus keyword(s).
  7. Use subheadings and keep paragraphs short.
A typical day as a freelance writer. I check the Google traffic to my blog and make sure all of my posts are search engine optimized.

Everyone’s blog is different.

The beauty of writing is that everyone’s blog is different. I hope this post has helped you get your WAHM act together and I pray for success in all of your future endeavors. Google traffic can do wonders for your page views and it’s very liberating to not depend on social media to grow your blog. Please comment below with your success stories. I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time, when your hands are full, live your life to the fullest.

Sincerely,

Fullest Mom

    Thanks for the tip about putting your keywords in the first paragraph. I’m bad for that, because I want to introduce my story without giving everything away.

      I used to be like that. I wanted rising action. However, in terms of blogging and web-based sharing, it didn’t work so well. Give it a try. You will be amazed how it will change things.
