Do you want to explode your website traffic? Who doesn’t want to do that? But not everyone knows the real hacks that can help you make that happen.

According to Neil Patel, in 2017 itself, 66% of marketers were focused on improving their SEO. Today with the increasing competition, this percentage has also definitely increased.

Everyone knows that in order to improve your conversions and boost your sales, you have to focus on improving SEO. And as such most marketers work on at least the basics of SEO, like optimizing their blog posts for better rankings.

But if you want to beat your competitors, then you have to stay a step ahead of them. To help you do that, I have listed down a few amazing SEO hacks that will help you explode your traffic and boost your conversion.

1. Start Early

This hack is for those who are still in the process of making their website. Don’t wait for the website to go live to improve your SEO. Start from the day you’ve purchased your domain name.

Now you’ll ask me how you can work on your SEO without having your website ready or publishing any content. The answer is by creating a coming soon page for your website. Having a coming soon page on your website before the site is launched has several benefits.

It will help create a buzz and raise awareness for your brand. And people will be curious about your website even before it’s ready. So the moment it’s live, you will have all of these curious minds coming into the website to check what it is about.

And not just that, if you are smart enough, you can strategically place your keywords on the coming soon page to get your SEO game started. This will help search engines understand what your site is going to be about, and it will start indexing it for search results.

2. Build Strong Backlinks

Have you ever tried to improve your backlinks? Having strong backlinks for your website can be a brilliant way of boosting your search rankings and increasing your traffic. Having a lot of backlinks pointing to your website is like a signal to Google that your website is considered to be valuable by another website. So they have considered linking to your website within their content.

Such signals add value to your domain name and boost your credibility in front of search engines like Google. So your search results start increasing, and you start gaining more organic traffic.

If you haven’t tried improving your backlinks before, you should start now. Reach out to publications that accept guest posts. Just type ‘write for us’ in Google, and you’ll find a lot of options pop up on your screen.

You can also collaborate with fellow bloggers and do a link swap with each other. This will not only benefit you but the other blogger as well. So they will surely be interested in accepting the offer.

3. Create Evergreen Content

This might sound basic, but evergreen content never goes out of trend. So make sure to focus on the quality of your content every time you’re drafting a new post. Instead of writing a post for the sake of writing it, make sure that you do your research well before you start drafting your post.

Your users should find your content helpful in solving their problems, feeling more secure, etc. You can also consider using high-quality images and videos to make them more engaging.

When your users find your content interesting and helpful, they are more likely to share it with their friends and family. This will help your post be more visible, and it will attract more quality leads as well.

4. Leverage Long-tail Keywords

Using the right keyword for your content is super important for increasing your search results and boosting your traffic.

Many marketers think that picking high search volume keywords can help them attract more traffic. But the problem is that the more the search volume it has, the more its competition will be to rank for these keywords.

That’s why instead of picking popular keywords with more search queries, it’s always advisable to use keywords with fewer search results. Long-tail keywords are perfect in that sense. The competition for such keywords is less, but these keywords match the exact intent of the searchers. This makes them more likely to get clicked. When you have more clicks, you also have more traffic.

So these are a few amazing ways to improve your SEO and explode your traffic. Now it’s your turn to use them and get the best results.
