[How to] Make Your Traffic Organic


It is considered the healthiest type of traffic. Organic or 'search engine' traffic is the type of traffic that is free and natural. If you left your website alone, organic traffic would keep on coming. It requires no attention which is why bloggers such as myself want the percentage of organic traffic to be as high as possible. Luckily, Ask Will Online manages to get a high percentage amount of organic traffic due to ranking highly with influential keywords. However, if your organic traffic is low, here is a extremely easy way you can increase it.

When you create an article on your website, the chances are that you will link to a few other articles on your website too. Internally linking is a great way to increase pageviews to a website. As well as this, generally, you will want to keep the visitor for as long on your website as possible and internal linking does this.

For example, if my article was about influential people on Twitter, I could link this article to another article of mine that goes through the top 10 most followed musicians on Twitter. << This is an example of internal linking.

The problem with internal linking is that the traffic source is your own traffic. As much as internal-referring traffic is good, we are know its not as good as organic traffic!
So why don't we turn internal traffic within article to organic traffic?
This is exactly what we are going to do. Click on the link below (which is the same link as the one above):
Now, click on this link:
What's the difference? Well, the first of the two links takes you to to the webpage:
http://www.askwillonline.com/2011/12/top-10-most-followed-musicians-on.html
While, the second link takes you to:
http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CDsQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.askwillonline.com%2F2011%2F12%2Ftop-10-most-followed-musicians-on.html&ei=9rCiT8y0KKbN0QXC9djxCA&usg=AFQjCNE6JIUuAjG0j9BzaPr0UVaS_374Jg
Which will refer to exactly the same article. The difference is that the top article is internal linking. The bottom article is a webpage from Google. Therefore, it's a type of organic traffic! To do this (look at the below image for easier instructions), all you have to do is Google the webpage you were going to use on within your article. Once you find it on Google, press the right mouse button while hovering over it and copy the web address. This web address you have copied will take you to your desired page. Therefore, insert it as a link within your article and day by day, as you make more articles using this method, your organic traffic will increase as people click on the links and get referred by Google.
