Don’t stick to just using popular keywords in the field of business. Make sure to use long tail keywords, or keywords that specifically connect to the service or product. After some time, search engines such as Google will identify the website or blog as the perfect relevant destination for a particular subject. These long tail keywords will help boost the content in search rankings and draw the ideal customers to the site.
Hey, Matt! Thank you for your sharing, and I learned much from it, but I still have a question. We began to do SEO work for our site 2 years ago, and our organic traffic grew 5 times ( from 8K to 40K every day). But two years later, it is very difficult to get it grow more, even it drop to 3.2K every day. So can you give me any advice to make our site's traffic grow again? Thank you in advance!
I understand building a theme-specific builder but why on earth would you build a theme-specific builder plugin that only works with one theme? At that point you’ve simply made it harder for your customers to get all the features of your theme without any added benefit. If Theme Fusion offered a whole suite of themes, having a builder plugin that works exclusively with their themes would make sense, but they don’t! They make one theme: Avada.
- Creating these networks is not free. It is not expensive, but it is not free. This software used to create your network is a minimum of $67/month. You’ll need hosting and that will cost you about $20/month. So bank on $87/month minimum to build your network. Plus, you’ll need domains. Lots of them. You can buy these at about $1 a piece and that will become a yearly cost.
Ever wondered how some of those companies/websites could get such amount of traffic (hundreds of thousands of visitors) just in a single day? I don’t know about you and what you do to get your traffic, but since I’ve been in this search engine marketing game I know how hard it is (was) to get a decent amount of organic traffic to test different offers, and I always been curious how those other guys do that on such a huge massive scale.
At the end, I’m not entirely certain how I feel about Conductor. I do really enjoy their approach with a Customizer-like interface (similar to the Tailor builder above) and they have provided a feature that very few other builders have: complete control of the page instead of just the content area. This level of control does at times make Conductor more difficult to use because it means the site editor has to build everything, instead of just the content area. For some site editors, this will be a hurdle, but for others it will be a huge win.
For me the hack squat machine has contributed far more muscle mass to my quads than barbell squats ever did. One of its greatest advantages is that you are able to go heavy on this exercise without having to worry too much about straining the lower back. The hack squat removes much of the glute and hip activation from the movement, allowing for a more direct strike to the quads. Additionally, there is little pressure on the neck even when piling on the plates, while lowering deep “into the hole” is less of a safety hazard.

The very first thing that I noticed (you may see a trend here) is that the editor interface is wildly outside of WordPress standards. A lot of people would call me a stickler here but I really do believe it matters a lot for overall user experience. The best experiences are always going to be the seamless ones. Brix Builder, like many of the other page builders, is definitely not a seamless experience.

Back to this question once again. During the past year with all the support from everyone as well as the dev grant we have received, we were able to expand our scope of development and visions of how the game will be. We have already included some of the stretch goals from last time into our core development and will now use this amount to almost double the content planned.
It is an overly broad generalization, but I’ve found that most developers that do not take the time to blend their own interfaces with the native WordPress interface, do not typically have great care for the overall user experience nor do they care greatly for WordPress itself. I cannot say if this holds true for the Visual Composer developers and, like I said, it is a very broad generalization, but it’s one I’ve found to be pretty accurate in my own experiences. It is one thing to strike out against standard user interfaces in order to create something better, and it is entirely something else to go drastically against style choices simply for the sake of it.
Before starting this, I need to be completely honest: I really dislike page builders. In the last few years, page builder plugins (and those built into themes) have quite possibly caused more headaches for me and my support team than any other single category of plugins available for WordPress. This overall experience, and one too many support tickets related to a builder in a week, culminated in the following Twitter rant:

This is an aside but one I feel is important. One of my very first impressions of Brix Builder was quite negative, not because of their sales page, the price, or anything else about the product, but because I could not find out anything about the people behind the product. It is built and sold by a company called Evolve s.n.c but beyond that, there’s nothing. I believe greatly in the importance of trust and the willingness to put your face and name on your product. While it could be a simple oversight, I always question if there is an ulterior motive behind the decision to not publicly state the names of company owners.


You could get even more specific by narrowing it down to customer base. Is there a specific group of clients you tend to serve? Try including that in your long-tail key phrase. For example: “SEO agency for non-profits in Albuquerque NM.” That’s a key phrase you’re a lot more likely to rank for. Not to mention it will also attract way more targeted, organic traffic than a broad key phrase like “SEO agency.”
Tyler, this article has blown me away and made me totally rethink our marketing strategy. We’re targeting a similar market (military recruitment) and was wondering if you could elaborate on your outreach to colleges (press release template, visual badge, instructions on how to promote and publicize the achievement). Thanks again for this amazing resource.
I’m facing the imminent demise of WooThemes Canvas, looking at the daunting task of converting five sites over time. I’ve used PootlePress products with uniformly good results (and excellent support). But still, I’m having to review new sitebuilder/framework/pagebuilder possibilities for the switch with STABILITY as a very high priority. Given that the sites I manage are relatively straightforward and not huge, another high priority will be on simplicity, with no content lock-in. I just read a post with a horror story of what happens when you try to convert Divi pages which are heavily encoded in Divi’s own format. I’m guessing this will be very useful. Cost is also an issue, as I work for small nonprofits. I’m thinking the unlimited site pro option of Beaver or Tailor may look more attractive now than Pootle’s 18Tabs theme with PageBuilder which would cost $270/year for five sites. At any rate, thank you very much for doing a good bit of the homework for me.
Everyone wants to rank for those broad two or three word key phrases because they tend to have high search volumes. The problem with these broad key phrases is they are highly competitive. So competitive that you may not stand a chance of ranking for them unless you devote months of your time to it. Instead of spending your time going after something that may not even be attainable, go after the low-hanging fruit of long-tail key phrases.

Hi Matt, realizing now how difficult it is to run a blog, trying to promote it and carry on with your daily activities. I would say it's a full time job. Once you thing you done learning about something, something else is coming :). My blog is about preparing for an ironman so I need to add the training on top of it. Thanks a lot for sharing this article with us so we can keep focus!!!
So immediately after installing the stand-alone plugin, I’m asked to install a separate framework plugin in order for Brix Builder to run. This is just a poor user experience with very little real benefit. I’ve seen a few companies do this but I’ve never been convinced it is a good idea. The standard argument for this approach is that the company can have multiple plugins that all use the same framework without requiring that each plugin bundle their own versions.
 “A future in where humans lived a prosperous century and technology advancing beyond space and time,” that was what humanity should have been if not for the sudden appearance of unknown beasts of the void. A large portion of humanity were gone in the moment. War for the survival of humanity broke off all over the world, changing landscapes and settlements into warzones. Humanity were forced to relocate into shelters and reinvent their technologies into weapons of war, the M.A.S.S. technology.
We already touched on Facebook's official response to the first question in the introduction: There are simply too many Pages producing too much content for too many fans, which means competition for visibility on the News Feed is high. What's more, Facebook is trying to make sure people are only seeing the best content -- the stuff that is most relevant to them.
To boost organic traffic, business owners must create noteworthy content that will grab the attention of webmasters and influencers. It means that when creating content on a specific topic, it should be the best piece ever created. Creating a good content will immediately boost the organic traffic. Also, it is beneficial in getting tons of social shares.
There are really just two issues I have with the plugin. A couple of times I found myself in trouble as some of the layout elements got jumbled (for unknown reasons) and were sitting on top of each other. When this happened I couldn’t figure out how to delete the problem elements. I suspect this is due to a minor javascript issue that could be easily resolved once identified.
Hello Pippin. Thank you again for this very clueful review. Having proceeded several miles further down the road in my search for a theme and page builder, I’m forced to say that, as a non-coder, my first priority is NOT for a page builder but a highly customizable THEME. And, so far, I’m simply not finding it. I used Woothemes Canvas for many years, with great satisfaction. The vast assortment of detailed options in the backend allowed me to avoid CSS except in rare situations, some of which could be solved with a plugin (e.g., placing a tabbed widgets layout in a sidebar). I have the highest admiration for Pootlepress and Beaver Builder, but I really don’t have the time for a deep study of CSS coding at this stage of the game. I would add a thought: most page builders are used badly, because the temptation is to build those horrible, space-chomping horizontal layouts that violate all the evidence-based rules of usability (from eye-scan studies and common experience). Thus, I would never choose a page builder that locked me into a row format. Fortunately, with Pootle Pro or Beaver Builder Pro, you can create long vertical columns that help site visitors get the information they need, without having to wander all over forty acres of screen space in gape-jawed awe for the wonderful designer. The Web was just starting to mature, by recognizing the the Internet is content-based, when this new technology came along and led us astray. I’m absolutely sure that common sense will prevail, and as the complaints mount there will be a return to sanity. Web devs need to study Roger Black, Jakob Nielsen, Steve Krug, and David Ogilvy.
One of the main reasons I chose to do this review was to try and be objective about it to see if my opinion was justified. I am really, really happy to say that a few builders here have won over my complete support. Those include Tailor, Pootle Page Builder, and Beaver Builder. Those three are easily my favorites that I would happily recommend to any of my customers. Sure they each have a quirk or two of their own, but what product doesn’t?
Like I said at the beginning, building organic traffic is hard. Anything that promises a shortcut to an avalanche of traffic will more than likely lead to a penalty down the road. Embrace the daily grind of creating great content that helps users and provides a solution to what they’re looking for. In the end that will drive more organic traffic than any shortcut ever will.
Organic traffic is the primary channel that inbound marketing strives to increase. This traffic is defined as visitors coming from a search engine, such as Google or Bing. This does not include paid search ads, but that doesn’t mean that organic traffic isn’t impacted by paid search or display advertising, either positively or negatively. In general, people trust search engines, and sayings such as “just Google it” reinforce that humans are tied to the search engine. Thus, paid search, display, or even offline campaigns can drive searches, which may increase organic traffic while those campaigns are running.
