I just had my mind blown. After talking with my good friend Wes yesterday, he mentioned that social media only accounts for 3% of all of most websites organic traffic!
Over 93% of all traffic starts with a google related search, so why are we focusing so much on the 3%?
Oh, and in case if you’re wondering if Wes was wrong, I checked my own stats and my social traffic was… you guessed it, 2.6%!
You may be thinking this is bad news, but it’s not. It’s actually a huge opportunity!
See, while everyone else is chasing a dream, you can dial in what really works, which is getting traffic from Google.
The funny thing about this is I’ve actually been testing my traffic sources with pretty extensive posting.
I made several videos, had them transcribed, then posted images about the same topic to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram and my blog.
Guess what ranked in a few short hours?
My YouTube videos. On page one of Google.
