List Building Using SEO

Search engine optimization and list building are rarely talked about together. And yet I think that if you want to maximize your list building, you really should be doing some seo things – I think that you should be getting squeeze pages to the top ten spots in the search engines.

Now you may have heard that squeeze pages don’t make it to the top ten listings. Well, maybe if you have a few bullets and a headline, maybe the search engines don’t want you there.

But the thing is, if someone gets to you from a search engine, they need a different type of squeeze page than someone that gets to you from a referral. So you probably need more than a headline and some bullets anyway. So why not write 300 words, put an opt in box at the bottom, and work on getting those pages to the top ten search results?

It really can be done – and then you control the page, not the article directories. Of course, until your pages can make it their on their own, the search engines are a great way to get started. You write articles that are keyword-optimized, the article directories get your pages in the top ten results for your word, and you get the highly – qualified traffic from the article pages.

So you really should use seo to get your squeeze pages to the top, and list build from there.

Sure, you can by PPC ads, but if you can get the search engine traffic for no additional cost, why not? Sure, it will be harder work than running a PPC ad, but PPC isn’t as easy as it seems.

How to Create Traffic Online Using the Search Engines

There are two main ways how to create traffic online using the search engines. These are by having a good listing in the search engine indices and by advertising on the PPC programs that some search engines offer. Let’s have a look at the first since that is the by far the best way to create traffic if you can achieve it.

The likelihood of you creating traffic by obtaining good listings on the search engines depends very much on both your ability to optimize your website for search engines and on the competition you have on the internet for the keywords in question. First a few words about keywords. These are the search terms used by the search engine customers when seeking information. For example, if a Google user enters ‘create traffic online’ into their browser to find information on that topic, Google will search its index for sites containing these words in the order given. It then looks for sites with part of the phrase, and so on.

If you enter that phrase in Google, you will find 41 million web pages found by Google for that keyword phrase. These are presented in the order that Google feels most relevant to the phrase and of most use to Google’s customer carrying out the search. In order to become visible in the top ten, your site will have to be optimized to Google’s requirements. Here are a few tips.
