  • 2.) Traffic driven by websites which are not search engines
  • 3.) Traffic referred via social media channels

Note: There will be instances whereby you may have a cost associated with 1,2 or 3…Organic doesn’t always mean free…

Can Anyone Do It?

Yes, absolutely! That’s the beauty of the internet…if you have a genuine interest in a subject and a passion for what you do, then even from a standing start you can be reaching an audience of thousands within just a few months. Check out this post here for an initial overview of SEO.

The screenshots below show the website analytics from a blog set up in April 2013, which now generates organic and referral traffic from around 7000 – 8000 unique visitors per month.

This level of organic traffic is genuinely achievable by anyone – no matter what your skill-set, background or experience. If you have access to a computer, an internet connection and you are passionate about a subject then you can be up and running in no time!
