You want to increase your traffic? I do not doubt that.
OK, as the title says get a cheap, I would say, the cheapest copywriter you can find. Not the best, not a good copywriter, but the cheapest one – a college student, an overseas freelancer, other kind of ideas go here.
I have got this idea about a year back. Recently I have read a story of a webmaster who has increased his AdSense earnings from $10.00 to $800.00 per week – and that reminded me of that idea. It is not new and to tell the truth a boring (but efficient) technique. I have practiced it for some time, but it was not much fun and I dropped it. Now I think that it is worth hiring someone to do this job as it does not attract me, but the technique works.
1. Conduct a proper keyword analysis – that is the core of the technique. You can certainly use this or this keyword research tools to start with. But we talk about a proper keyword research that will provide you with reliable information about number of searches and competitors (demand/ supply), will help you to make a list of misspellings, etc. WordTracker is a nice tool in this case.
2. Hire a local college student or an overseas freelancer. The price – all that matters. You need the cheapest human (not automatic) content generator.
3. Supply him with the list of keywords you have got as a result of your deep keyword research.
4. Instruct that person: you need to write articles focused around each of the keyword phrase. The articles should be 100% unique (copyscape tool will control you), 300-400 words. You should mention the article title in the text, use references to your other articles with proper anchor text, etc…
5. Design a landing page properly optimized (yes, it is a PPC term applicable for this organic optimization technique). The layout to the left is quite good:
6. Publish those articles after making the required changes (on-page optimization) and interlinking them into the website structure.
7. Wait for a few months for any effect (= traffic increase).
Summary: I should mention that this technique is not applicable to all websites (unfortunately). It works fine with good and established websites that are online for a couple of years.
Will it (‘artificial content’) damage the image of your website? I do not think so. You can keep running the website the way you do it now adding valuable content, services and tools.
