Quick Wins: How to Get Easy Backlinks and Traffic


One of the most common questions I get on the site is…

“How the heck can I get traffic, backlinks and rankings?! I keep putting up new content and don’t seem to be getting anywhere!!”

This is a very common question/concern, especially for folks just starting out.

I hit on both of those topics in full detail in this week’s Podcast episode, with the goal being some quick wins for everyone that listens in and takes some action.

Within a few hours you can have some new, quality, backlinks to your site and individual posts and you will be well on your way to networking with other folks in your niche, with very minimal effort on your part.

Additionally, by following the suggestions in the Podcast, I think you can realistically get an article or two to rank on the first page of Google, within a very short period of time.

Be sure to give this week’s episode a listen and put the steps to use right away!

Tools of the Week

This week you get a bonus!  Not one, but two tools of the week, exciting right?!

Both perform a very similar function.  You can utilize one or the other, but you really don’t need both.

They are Open Site Explorer from Moz.com and Majestic SEO.

By plugging in the full URL of a competing article into either tool, you can see exactly where your competitors are getting backlinks from.  You can then try to replicate their success, by getting links from those same places.

Of course my favorite keyword research tool for competition analysis is Long Tail Pro.

Both Open Site Explorer and Majestic SEO will give you a limited number of queries for free and that will suffice for what we need today.

Utilizing these tools is not required to get good results from the suggestions in this week’s episode, but they can certainly help if you want to go that extra mile.


My hope for this week’s episode is that you can take the actionable tips and put them into use right away, so that you can see positive results in a matter of days or weeks.

Quick wins can go a long way to getting that forward momentum rolling.

Please take the suggestions and put them into action and then stop back to let me know how things are going!

As always, best wishes for continued success with all of your online adventures!
