How to Get More FREE Traffic for Your Travel Website / Blog

Our travel SEO tips are a series of FREE anecdotal notes, written in plain English terms which are designed to help improve your search results & therefore your internet visibility to others.

In the “good old days”, the most important adage for any bricks & mortar based business (offline business) was always LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!, any business that was NOT located in a position whereby it was highly visible would be lucky to survive, let alone thrive!! .

The internet “online” revolution that has swept the world over the last 5 years has completely re-defined the adage to now being INFORMATION, INFORMATION, INFORMATION!, interestingly though the “visibility” issues are even more important today than they were back in the good old days.

You can have the most beautifully designed creative website or blog, but if nobody can see it, what is the point!!.

Our Travel SEO Tips

Hey Google I’m Over Here!!!

When Google, Yahoo, Microsoft(or whatever they are calling themselves this week!!) & Ask visit your site, they are expecting you to be an “expert” within your own niche.

Your potential visitors are looking for expert knowledge & authority within your given area, that is why they want to visit you, if you have this expert authority within your niche subject, you will over time discover how easy it is to find good levels of traffic & monetise your site.

IF you do not / cannot fulfil this simple function, you have no means of being able to “hold” your visitors attention, which is recognised by the search engines very quickly, with the impact being that your search results “disappear” into the ether beyond page three of your designated search topic. Hopefully our travel seo tips will ensure you never suffer that fate!.

There are literally thousands of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) companies on the internet, all making promises about “top 10 Google rankings” in no time, virtually all of them charging ridiculous amounts of money, and most of them disappointing their customers!!, it’s a complete minefield & typically you end up dazed & confused as to what to do…
