This article is meant to inspire people who are interested in keyword optimization, and who believe in it. The article serves as an update on a previous article, and a source of motivation for web publishers and bloggers who aspire to always continue growing their sites. Last time I published a post on how keyword optimization shot my keyword-optimized articles to the top on my website stats, I was inspired by responses/comments from readers was inspired to write and publish this article.
We will take a look at nine screenshots which would prove how effective keyword optimization is, and how it can attract high return on investment in terms of increasing number of views and eBook downloads mostly from people who have been referred from Google.
A brief look at the stats of two of my articles that have been the most viewed, especially from Google
When I published a related article on August 21, 2019, my most viewed article “Definition & types of technical drawing” had been viewed 1,352 times, with over 70+% of the views coming from Google within 6+ months prior; in addition, my article “15 Reasons why You Should Study Environmental Science” had been viewed 671 times within 8+ months prior.
But as at today (screenshot 1), and within 14+ days after the related article was published, Definition & types of technical drawing and 15 Reasons why You Should Study Environmental Science had been viewed a total of 2028 and 1,167 times, respectively—this represented a rise of 676 and 496 within 2+ weeks: 50% and 74% increase, respectively, in terms of the number of views.
Because of interest from my readers who have been coming from Google, I was motivated to produce two eBooks (one of them has been revised once, while the other has been revised 4 times) which, as at the day of publication of this article, had been downloaded a total of 312 times: 174 and 138 times, respectively (see Screenshot 2 below), and 231 out of the 312 were downloaded within the first 6 days of September, 2019.
Definition & types of technical drawing, which used to attract between 30 and 50 views per day, later started attracting between 70 and 100+ views per day, mostly from Google. In fact, on September 4, 2019, it attracted 124 views even though I didn’t publish any article on that day (see Screenshot 3 below).
In August, 2019, Definition & types of technical drawing attracted 499 views, but within 6+ days of the following month (September, 2019) had already attracted 391 views (see Screenshot 4), and within one or two days, could beat the stats of last month; at the end of September, 2019, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these stats double, triple, or quadruple the stats of August. 2019.
When I started this site, even up to 2 years later, it was quite normal for my site to be referred by Google between five and ten times per month; but after using keyword optimization much later than 2 years, it became quite normal to wake up a few hours into a new day and see my site being referred 16 times by Google, and my most viewed article being viewed 21 times (see Screenshot 5).
My greatest motivation is my site’s Google Search Console report which showed that the average position of my site within the last seven days was 1.3 whenever the query “types of technical drawing” was made by Google users (see Screenshot 6).
Also, the average position of my site within seven days was 6.4 whenever the query “why study environmental science” was made by Google users (see Screenshot 7).
Generally, the top 5 queries that made my site to be highly referred by Google and viewed from Google within 7 days, were (see Screenshot 8):
- types of technical drawing
- why study environmental science
- technical drawing
- different types of technical drawing
- why do we study environmental science.
The keywords that appear in Sceenshot 8 above (Google Search Console report) ring a bell and inform us exactly what some people are searching for on the World Wide Web. The same thing happens around other keywords outside the technical drawing and environmental science niches.
Generally, within the the past 7 days before this article was published, most visitors from Google came from the following countries (see Screenshot 9.):
- United States
- United Kingdom
From my experience within 8+ months (i.e., between January 1, 2019, and September 6, 2019), I would advise fellow bloggers to use keyword optimization if they want to easily attract readers (who belong to their niche) through Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, etc., from the internet world. I advise that fellow bloggers should search for keywords in their niches, and start using them, or continuously get more familiar with them.
If you are interested in increasing your site’s exposure, blog regularly, and use keywords which can be confirmed from Google/keyword tool; also, if you can, share the links of your content on other social media platforms. Furthermore, you can expose your site much more by producing downloadable eBooks which you can upload for free on your website and other popular eBook websites such as PDFdrive and Slideshare.net; if you do so, people who are interested could download your eBooks and continue to share them with the wider world which, over time, will likely continue to come in larger numbers to your site.
