Alist Club had a free Webinar for all its past members on how to increase traffic using YouTube. It was given by Video Traffic Academy. Their claim is that video is the best source of traffic for the 18 to 54 age group. That a visitor from this demographic spent over fifteen minutes a day on You Tube.
Good reasons people like You Tube are because it’s free and Google loves it. Google owns it and will not get rid of it any time soon. Like Google, it is growing exponentially. It grows with use. They recommend you make a channel and make a video each week building momentum with consistency. The more consistent you are the more your views will increase, like blogging. The more consistent we are about posting, the more we increase traffic. Of course you must have good content in your videos, just like in your blog posts. You can read how to increase traffic to your blog here.
A good way to increase traffic is to make it sharable by being able to transfer it to your blog, website or face book just like I do here by linking the reader to other blog posts.
Here are some “jaw dropping stats”:
- 35 hours uploaded per minute
- 3 billion views/day
- Second largest search engine
- Third most visited website
In case you don’t have the web site, here it is, www.youtube.com/watch.
There is a three-step process to boost traffic with online video.
- – Optimize your keywords
- – Produce high value videos
- – Consider the aftermath
I will explain the three-step process in my next post called “Post Two on How to Increase Traffic to Your Site.” If you are enjoying these posts on how to increase traffic consider subscribing to my blog by clicking the subscribe button in the sidebar to your left and find each new post in your email box. I post each Tuesday and Saturday about issues of interest to writers and about my life as I navigate my second career as a writer.
I had an image to add to this post but when I clicked on the icon, (and I did this several times because that’s all I know how to do) to add an image it remained blank. Something must be wrong with WordPress tech right now. It reminds me that they aren’t infallible and I’ve heard total breakdowns have happened to almost all bloggers at least once.
Has this happened to you? What did you do about it?
