This article will help you decide how much traffic you will need from organic sources to reach your online income goals.  It will also go over how to rank your website well in the major search engines.

Many people hope they will be able to make money free by ranking well in search engines which will bring targeted web traffic to their presence who are looking for the products or services the specific person is selling.  To rank well in search engines for any given term you will need to learn search engine optimization.  This is the process of using on site and off site techniques to improve search engine position.  Before you can meet organic traffic goals you should create some organic traffic goals.  When creating these goals the first should be the biggest.  This will be your ending goal which means when you reach this goal all you need to do is maintain position rather than increase it.  On a basic income scale one thousand unique visitors daily will earn you around one thousand dollars monthly.  This is of course a very rough estimate and can change dramatically depending on how targeted the visitors coming to your presence are and what monetization techniques you are using. 


Personally my end goal is around two thousand unique visitors daily which will bring in around two thousand dollars in monthly income.  It is also important to set goals along the ways toward this final goal.  Once you know your end goal which should correlate with your end income goal pick some simple goals that can be met in a couple months.  These should be keywords that are exactly what you are promoting.  If you are promoting get paid to take surveys affiliate programs then the first few goals you should be looking at include “get paid to take surveys”,Guest Posting “paid to take surveys”, and “high paying surveys”.  Ranking in the top spot for these will start bringing in some extremely targeted traffic.  The only people that would be typing these terms in to Google and the other major search engines are those who are actually wanting to begin making money by taking surveys.  As you begin reaching your goals and ranking in the top spot for these targeted terms start moving onto other targeted keywords.  Continuing with the example the next set of keywords that have higher volumes of traffic would be keywords such as “paying surveys” and “paid surveys”.


When wanting to rank well for keywords it will be important to begin optimization.  The first step is placing the words you would like to rank well for on your presence.  You should also make sure your navigation is optimized by replacing generic terms with keywords when they are interchangeable.  Once you have your website optimized the next step is going off site and building keyword optimized links.  This can be done from multiple resources, but when building links remember not all links carry the same authority.  Look for links which are from high page rank sites, relevant to your topic, and willing to give you a one way link which means you do not need to place a link on your site.  One of the major problems with link building is finding these three things is extremely difficult so you will need to be willing to build links with only one or two of these things.  Some of the places you can begin building links includes article directories, forums, and free web directories.
