3 Simple Methods To Generate Traffic Without Seo Or Social Media

We all need to generate traffic to our content. We require relevant targeted traffic to get the content we create seen by the people it is intended for. SEO and Social Media are seen as huge methods to grow traffic to your site and of course, they are. But in this article, we will show you 3 easy methods to generate traffic without SEO or Social Media

Let’s Introduce you to Google Alerts

We have already talked about Google Alerts in our guide to Google Alerts. Now we are going to expand and drill down on what we learned in that article and learn an awesome traffic generation strategy. Absolutely anyone can employ this strategy in just a couple of minutes and generate free targetted traffic to their content.

Generate Traffic To Your Site By Diverting Traffic

1/ Traffic Generation With Google Alerts

You can definitely generate traffic without SEO and Social Media with Google Alerts.

This method of generating niche targeted traffic is probably the easiest method there is to bring traffic to your blog site. All you have to do is find relevant blogs that are posting new content that is related to the content that you create. In order to do this, we use Google Alerts.

Google Alerts is a free Google Tool that sends you daily email alerts when new content has been published that may be of interest to you. Simply set the parameters on Google Alerts to find the top bloggers in your niche so that you are alerted to new content that is published.

When you find relevant, traffic generating content all you have to do to divert some of the traffic the content receives your way. You do this by writing a very good relevant comment on the article that asks questions and adds value. This puts your take on the subject forward. Make your comment engaging and insightful to get the attention of the author and the readers. Add your site link to the website box when you comment so that they can click through to you.

Remember your comment has to be good and offer some value to the post or it probably won’t get past moderation. So make sure you read the article fully don’t just skim through the post before adding your comment.

How Google Alerts Works

You now know the basic traffic generation strategy we use with Google Alerts. Now time to drill down and show you how to apply Google Alerts to boost your traffic.

Take a look at this very simple graphic below that I have created. It shows the settings required to enable you to find traffic generating articles.

Google Alerts Traffic Generation Strategy InfoGraphic

  1. Search Query – Add in your Google Alerts Search Terms so in my example social media
  2. Result Type – On the Result Type pull-down menu selects Blogs
  3. Language – Select your language
  4. Region – Leave this in any region, but you can drill down and to country-specific if you require
  5. How Often – On the pull-down menu select as-it-happens so that you have every chance of being the first to comment, this means that more will see and read your comment
  6. How Many – Select Only the best results
  7. Deliver To – Add your email address

Click Create Alert, and you are done.

2/ Traffic Generation With Viral Content Bee

To put it simply ViralContentBee is a website where you earn credits for social sharing other members content. You then use the credits earned to add your own projects into the rotation for members to share.

Now I know I said there were no social media involved with these 3 traffic generation methods and you can argue VCB is all about social media, but all ViralContentBee really is, is a platform that shows your content to a community, there is no real engagement with members on a social media level. The only social media element is clicking share to earn points.

I have already written quite an extensive Getting Started Guide for ViralContentBee you can read more below.

How To Give Your Blogs Viral Reach – How To Make Your Blogs Go Viral Quickly

We are all looking to get our blog articles out to our readers. The main way to do this is via social media channels. Getting our articles shared means that we generate traffic. Our posts get indexed quicker and get found on the search engines.

ViralContentBee is a great site. You to add your blog articles to the Viral Content Bee sharing platform to be shared by the members. To add your articles you need sharing credits. You can simply buy these by becoming an upgraded member or you can earn them by sharing member content.

Once you have some credits apply them to an article that you want to share. Then let the members help to make your blog go viral.


ViralContentBee is a quality site with quality members. VCB checks all article submissions for quality. No affiliate programs or money-making schemes are allowed on VCB. The focus is very much on quality.

Traffic Generation Pro-Tip

Make sure you check the articles you are sharing. They may well be worth adding a comment to and used to generate traffic.

If you do comment, again focus on the comment being of value to the post, to grab the attention of readers and the site owner.



3/ Generate Traffic With Just ReTweet

Just ReTweet is a viable alternative to ViralContentBee.

As the name would suggest Just ReTweet started out as a site that members used to generate retweets.Now it has moved on and now encompasses Facebook Likes and Google +1s as well. Simply share member posts and earn points and then allocate those points to your own projects for members to generate share for your content, you can also earn points for following members.

    Thanks Lesly, yes Google Alerts brings the content to you with no fuss just via email, then just review the content, if it’s of good enough quality just comment and engage with the author about what they have post and you should see some valuable niche traffic from your actions.

    Yup! This is a topic I love. Traffic without having to worry about search engines is a great soothing thing for bloggers.

    Viral content buzz works really well for me. Although I am relatively new there, I am seeing great reach and good quality reach over there!

    Thanks for the tips 🙂

    Hi Dexter,

    I have been using VCB and JustRetweet and both are really great tools to bring in quality traffic. Also blog commenting if done effectively can be a traffic mine that generate targeted traffic, however I didn’t though that I could use Google Alerts to be notified of latest posts about specific topic. Thanks for sharing this great tip.

    I have used Google Alerts for quite awhile, but I do very little with them. Often, I don’t even look at them – just save them for the future. Writing blogs, reading and sharing others’ blogs, taking webinars, seeing cliens, creating videos and doing lots of other online stuff, makes it important for me to pick and choose which programs to use and focus on.

    Thanks for all these details. I may revisit a few of these sites that you suggest.

    Hi Dexter,

    I do use Google Alerts to stay on top of industry news and trends. I want to thoroughly know my niche so I research it, read other blogs on the same topic, and stay up-to-date on related news. I have set up the alerts and I love how Google then sends the relevant articles to my inbox. When we know our niche well, we are able to write content that matters to our readers and they will see us as an expert–a go-to person in our niche.

    An excellent article Dexter. I still haven’t tried Viral Content Buzz but I’m going to check it out right now. Out of all of the like exchanges I prefer iboexchange.com which is part of IBO toolbox. I feel you can better target the right people to like your pages/profiles as well as find those that you don’t mind liking too.

    I believe that quality is better than quantity when it comes to your followers.

    I too use Google Alerts but need to update them.

    Great article, I found it on Viral Content Buzz and shared it there. I definitely find the idea to use Google Alerts most interesting. I used it before, but just to find out mentions of my own company or my own name. But finding other blog posts related to my own offers is a great idea.

    I like your idea about Google Alert. Generally people use it for up to date information about their niche (current niche market research). Your idea about using it to generate website traffic is very clever.

    It looks like I’m a little late to the party on this post, but still wanted to add my 2 cents.

    I’ve gotta hand it to ya Dexter, that Google Alerts tip for blog commenting is pretty sharp! I intend to file that one away under ‘street moves’.

    And although I don’t personally use VCB, I do make use of CoPromote & Crowdfire. From as far as I can tell, social boosting sites pretty much accomplish the same things. Personally, I think it depends on your goals for using a particular one & your preference for a particular site/community that matter most.

    But my takeaway from this post isn’t even about the subject matter here; it’s how you link to your other posts.

    Straight up Dexter, that is the most unique, original method I’ve ever seen somebody use to internally link their site! At first it threw me off, because I just assumed that you were quoting a screenshot. Then, upon closer inspection it hit me. That’s a pretty boss ass way to accomplish linking to a previous post.

    Props man!
