Using Video Submission Sites For Website Traffic

[Traffic Action Plan Part 6]

I’m a VERY big fan of using video submissions to get traffic, I’ve used it a lot and I’ve always had great results, and the traffic in my experience is long term, so it’s one of those great things where you do the work once and get significant long term benefits.

However, there’s another reason I like doing videos so much, they can also be the content for your blog posts, and they can even make up a good quality “lead magnet”, i.e. a gift that you give away for free to help build your list.

So you can not only get long term benefits from the traffic, you can use the actual videos in more than one way, as content for your posts, as submissions to get backlinks and traffic, and as a lead magnet to grow your subscriber list.

How good is that!?! 🙂

And the search engines tend to like videos a lot, so you can end up ranking for keywords with your videos more easily than for your own blog posts…

Using Blog Comments For Backlinks and Traffic
This one’s pretty easy, but does take a bit of time, although it is free and can pull in some pretty good traffic and backlinks, as well as having the potential to build some “authority” in your niche if you get it right…

Leaving comments on other people’s blogs, preferably in the same market as you, can get you a bunch of backlinks and traffic for free.

The standard way to approach Blog Commenting for traffic is to target high “PageRank” and high traffic (low Alexa rank) blogs for your targeted keywords and just leave good comments (that will get accepted if the comments are moderated, which they will be on the better blogs) on as many blogs as possible.

There are software tools to help you search by keywords and find high PR blogs (that don’t have the “nofollow” tag on comments, so you get more “link love”) and I’ll link to a free one towards the bottom of this post, look for “Blog Comment Magic“.

This post is about submitting your RSS feed to RSS Directories to get traffic to your blog or website.

I’m not going to get bogged down in trying to explain exactly what RSS (Real Simple Syndication) is and how it works…

What you need to know is that it is another way in which your blog (or website) content can be delivered to people interested in reading it, either directly to their desktop “RSS reader” or online, without them having to visit your blog itself, although they will often end up doing so providing they are interested in your content.

Simply put, the more ways you give people of finding and reading your content, the more people you are going to be able to reach, and RSS is one more easy & effective way of doing exactly this.
