Everything About Organic Traffic Every Site Owner Should Know

search

Organic traffic is traffic sent to a website from search engines for free. This typically happens when the search engines like the content on the site. This type of traffic usually accounts for over 80% of the total clicks on a search engine page. Organic search results appear on a search engine based on their relevance to the search query. Major search engines attest to the fact that many of their users tend to click on the organic results when compared to the ads. This is one reason that every website owner who wants to be in business wants to have organic traffic on his site more than anything else.

Black hat SEO techniques, on the other hand, refer to methods used by individuals and companies to gain high rankings by breaking some search engine optimization rules while at it. In short, Black SEO is getting rankings in an unethical manner. When search engines catch a site using these methods, they normally penalize it. This method unlike organic traffic focuses on the search engine and not on the human audience.

For any website to have good rankings, white hat SEO should be applied. Every site owner should spend time improving on organic SEO as opposed to the unethical methods. Below are black hat SEO techniques that every site owner should avoid.

Keyword stuffing

Organic SEO is all about content and keywords. However, when the keywords are overstuffed they do not look natural. Every site owner should strive to write content that is for the humans to read and not the search engine spiders to index.

Cloaking

This technique is used when a site owner tends to show different content to crawlers than what is displayed on the site. In many instances, when a search engine proves that a page is using this on-page optimization technique, it gets banned.

Spinning articles

When many site owners think of how to increase website traffic, many are misled to try this technique. They post a unique version of content on the site by rewriting content that is already in existence. This method reduces the quality of the content completely.

At the end of the day, everyone who wants to get some good rankings online can get them if only the right techniques are followed. Just like in any other area, the internet requires patience and hard work. Every site owner should only use natural and allowed search engine optimization tips to increase on his site’s traffic and rankings.

Google is very strict about these policies. being ignorant or deceiving will put you in a lot of trouble.

Let’s walk you through the top 5 Google AdSense policies that will secure your Google AdSense account:

Avoid Invalid Clicks and Impressions

Don’t click on your own ads. You may want to check if the ads are working properly or you may want to get more information about the advertisers – but there are lots of ways to do this. If you choose to click on your own ads under this pretext, Google will take note of it and these invalid clicks will cause you a problem.

Also, asking your family or friends, social media followers or emailing your list to click on the ads on your website goes against Google Adsense policies.

Don’t encourage others using misleading or deceptive methods to generate more clicks. Offering compensation, or using phrases such as “Click on Ads” or “Support us”, or placing misleading labels on Google ads are all sure ways to get banned.

Google says,

“Users should always click on Google ads because they’re interested in the services being advertised, not to raise money for your site or for a cause, or to generate some sort of reward for themselves.”

Content Guidelines

Google Adsense has very strict policy of not placing ads in blogs with restricted content, like adult or mature, copyrighted, violent, or hateful content, excessive profanity or content that promotes illegal activity.

Content which offers compensation for clicking ads, low quality content or sites using black hat SEO techniques are penalized by Google by lowering their rankings.

Create relevant and in-depth content for your site and adhere to Google web-masters guidelines.

Ad Implementation

Google does not permit to alter its ads codes it any way, unless it is authorized by Google. Do not use pop up prompts or other prompts to install any software or attempt changes to the user’s browser home page.

Google believes in,

“Improving the user experience on the Internet, and promoting responsible software principles.”

Ad Placement

Don’t use tricks to stimulate accidental clicks. To avoid this don’t place ads near or on page controls like scroll bar or closing tab.

Do not create pages only for Google ads or place them in emails or pop ups. Don’t confuse users by placing ads near images or links and misusing Google logos or trademarks for your ads.

Traffic Sources

Do not purchase traffic from third parties who participate in paid-to-click programs, send unwanted emails, or install unwanted software to display ads.

Conclusion

Google gives more importance to better user experience and all its policies are created in the same direction. So in order to continue enjoying stable income and not getting banned from Google Adsense, make sure to strictly follow all the rules by Google Adsense. Google keeps updating their policies, so stay updated all the time.
