Hey, Matt! Thank you for your sharing, and I learned much from it, but I still have a question. We began to do SEO work for our site 2 years ago, and our organic traffic grew 5 times ( from 8K to 40K every day). But two years later, it is very difficult to get it grow more, even it drop to 3.2K every day. So can you give me any advice to make our site's traffic grow again? Thank you in advance!

The traffic ratios may differ slightly, but it is not unheard of to get roughly ten percent of everyone who reads your articles to click through to your website. Some of my articles in fact have about a thirty percent ratio. The main point then to get a truckload of free web traffic is to write more articles. You will soon develop your own statistics and be able to work out exactly how many articles are needed to get your targeted traffic goal.
As there are so many different factors that affect a web page’s ranking, it is not easy to write articles that reach Google’s first page and receive free targeted traffic constantly and steadily. That’s why 99.99% of the blogs don’t have any traffic and bloggers give up after a long time of trial and error. They write articles, but their articles can’t reach the first page.
I would like to talk about a case study for a large start up I worked on for over eight months in the Australian and US market. This client originally came to the company with the typical link building and SEO problems. They had been using a SEO company that had an extensive link network and was using less than impressive SEO tactics and methodologies over the last 12 months. The company was also losing considerable revenue as a direct result of this low quality SEO work. So, I had to scramble and develop a revival strategy for this client.
Post in forums. Visit the online discussion forums where people in your target market like to gather. Post useful responses to people's questions, and include a link to your website at the end of your post next to your name. Although you ultimately want to get your sig file with the link to your site seen as often as possible, don't overdo it with your posts, otherwise other forumites won't respect you, and therefore won't visit your site.
You can start improving your writing and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) skills, but you have a long way to reach the level that you can write quality articles like the examples I showed you above. No doubt you and your business can’t wait for you to become an experienced writer and blogger who publishes a few quality articles every week. You need targeted traffic NOW!
Regarding Link Detox, links it diagnoses as Toxic are generally fine as they're either not indexed by Google or have malware/viruses/etc., but I recommend a manual review of any diagnosed as Suspicious. I used it recently to get started cleaning up our backlinks and some legit sites and blogs were under Suspicious simply because they didn't have many links pointing to them.
So, Google has accepted the reconsideration request, you can now move forward with creating high-quality link building and a content creation strategy. I see every one creating threads about great content marketing examples, but the problem is that most of the time these are big business examples. SME’s and start-ups do not have big dollars to do such things, so the next best thing is to is to create a content market calendar for your clients.
