How to Get More Traffic To Your Website (With Stats)

February 13, 2019 by 31 Comments


Learn how to get traffic to your website using both free and paid traffic tactics that work in 2019. See real-life examples with supporting stats and drive more traffic to your website or blog.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve run countless online marketing experiments, which have accumulated into a nice list of case studies. Today, I share some of the best ways to get more traffic fast based on my own websites and blogs as well as in-house strategies we practice at Ahrefs.

Here’s what’s covered in the tutorial.

1. The Reverse Quora Technique
Quora is a popular question and answer forum. But posting on questions with a lot of views or upvotes is not a good method to get free traffic from this platform.

Instead, you can reverse engineer Quora’s organic keyword rankings in Google for a data-driven way to find topics that will get passive SEO traffic.

The result? Over 40,000 visitors and 15,000 leads from Quora alone to a brand new website.

2. The 17K Experiment
Facebook ads and Google ads are popular paid sources to get traffic to your website. But as they grow in popularity, they get more expensive.

But there are a lot of cheap advertising platforms out there simply because they’re not used as much. Meaning, less competition.

I tested ad platforms such as Pinterest, Taboola, Reddit, Outbrain, and Yahoo Gemini. Two of these platforms worked really well for me and one even produced a 3.5X ROI on every dollar spent.

3. Get a boost in organic traffic without creating new pages
This is one of the best ways to get free traffic to your website and all you need to do is update out-of-date content.

But there’s more to this strategy than picking a random blog post and rewriting it. This video outlines criteria to watch for to maximize your chances of getting more visitors to your blog.

We’ve been using this technique at Ahrefs and have seen near instant spikes in traffic to some of our pages.

4. The Content Multiplier
You might have heard of repurposing content. But does it actually work?

The video covers some slick hacks we use on Twitter to drive higher engagement for each tweet. We also share some of our blog and YouTube stats that shows the exponential growth we’ve had over the past 7 months.

5. Improve Click-through Rate on All Platforms
This one might seem obvious to you. But are you regularly practicing this?

Nearly all digital marketing platforms (Google, Facebook, YouTube, etc.) give you stats on click-through rates. Rather than blindly changing all of your titles, there are methods you can use to find pages that could use a boost in clicks.

Double your click-through rate and double your website.

6. Our Favorite Online Marketing Strategy – Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
This one may not be as fast as PPC traffic, but the huge advantage is that it’s free and drives passive and consistent traffic to your site.

    Once again a great video, but many of your tips do not apply for doing SEO in non-English speaking countries – also, you can’t really rely on Ahref’s ‘Organic traffic’ metric…

    1. Ahrefs says:

      Does SEO work differently with other languages? As for organic traffic, did you have any problems using it? What did you use it for?

    2. ESMN says:

      ​@Ahrefs Hi Max, thanks for your answer! For smaller countries, the possibility of acquiring links is much smaller, and therefore, link building has sadly turned into a link market where it is almost only possible to get links by buying them. By doing this, most sites buy the same links, and therefore, they have difficulties differentiating from competitors. I would love to get your brilliant input on this – could you possibly make a video/blog post on this?

      As for ‘Organic traffic’, Ahrefs’ estimates are simply not correct or close to being so. This is especially the case for branded queries. If my site ranked nr. 3 for the keyword ‘Facebook’, Ahrefs would tell me that I get millions of visitors every month, but no one would probably click on my page since the search intent is to go to Can you see the problem? It would be amazing if Ahrefs’ Rank Tracker could be integrated with Google Analytics so that it would be possible to have all relevant data about traffic collected at one place.

    3. Ahrefs says:

      We think about possible integration with Google Search Console and possibly Google Analytics. Hope it will help in your particular case.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! Quora is notorious for striking posts with links to personal or commercial websites. How did you plant one into yours?

    1. Ahrefs says:

      These should be topical and relevant to a topic. A link should take readers to a page, that answers initial question. Where you can then boost some product pages with internal links from this useful article 😉
