    Those are some very very low traffic sites in some fkn hard niches, # dominated by high RD/DR webshops.

    As I bank $$$ 80% of my online income with youtube, I neglected those sites, but the last months I went step by step into "re activating them".
    there was like no link building or shit done to them just simple old :

    static front page
    no BLOGSHIT FKN WP CRAP (tags, category, nofollow bullshit,blogstyle, etc..)
    MANUAL category PAGES linking to the articles.

    so, here are some stats:

    traffic doubled:
    https://gyazo.com/fdfc5967f3ae16e7d2ac1adf626bdb2f
    traffic exploded:
    https://gyazo.com/09554cff52432340946386b94ab45ac4
    8x traffic:
    https://gyazo.com/757b5b78a876c2094f8760eee016b08b

    I know you azzes think in the "10k keyword" range. but I dont care.

    I am just thankfull I found this principle of "old ugly static sites from 2002" which create 2x-10x more traffic now. no external linkbuilding an shit.

    for most of those sites, I am now reaching for free links.

    and I am rolling those "update" now out to all the other sites atm.

    I didn't get it. What exactly did you do to increase your traffic?

    @darulez so you mean you just did the proper silo to the entire site to increase your traffic? If possible can you please clear it?

    yes, all those 3 examples were "traditional fucked up worpdres blogs"

    I threw out:
    categorys
    tags
    and blog style
    sidebar navigation

    created a static front page with intro text.
    in content linkinkg to manual created "category" pages, which link to the articles.
    1 horizontal top navigation, which has the only purpose for visitors navigation.

    I even did some test on one site(which was to weak to post as a casestudy even for my standards), where I ONLY moved the sidebar links to the main content on / and It helped abit more for rankings.

    K. you leeches. I want ten pushup and some likes now.

    you're uslesse fucked up regular blog. thing I am exaggerating? look around.

    example:

    https://fuckedupwp.wordpress.com

    the defucked siloed version.

    https://defuckedwp.wordpress.com/

    that took me 15 minutes to setup. so appreciate it!

    I am sure there is still some bleed there somewhere. But it tried to get rid of it as much as I can in shorttime.

    5-10x traffic? 5x less links? 5x more ROI? I stick to "ugly" non blog layout.

    Why do you complain about guru's and how they present data if your "traffic doubled" is far away from being doubled? Two of the three stats show that traffic dropped again after the increase in december, do you know what caused that?

    I think this is similar to what socialtriggers.com does (static front page). I am going to implement it on my site anyway, let's see what happens :)

    I guarantee you will get a massive rank boost if you silo structure your site.

    I will never forget the first time I did it, rankings went up all across the board over night.

    You basically remove all the useless links and leave only whats necessary.

    Think of it as a boat with holes, when you silo structure your site your patching the holes and fixing the leaks.

    Not only do you keep more link juice, you direct most of it to the pages you want to rank.

    Do it now!

    just takes approx 7 days - 10 days till so see first movements.

    and triggers is clearly an example of fucked up site bleeding shit to everywhere.
    ifyou got 10k for backlinks, go for it. I dont.

    I use the "latest" non responsive fast loading official wp theme with updates. twenty ten.
    the "responsive = ranking " is also warriorforum bullshit.

    Ahhhhhh, I get it now. Interesting stuff. It wasn't just because it was more mobile responsive than the other shit old style? That's a big ranking factor also.

    So to clarify.

    Homepage should have links to all internal pages that you are trying to rank, and no other links. Ie, links to widget page and rocket page.

    Internal pages should have links to the money page in their category that you are trying to rank.
    So you will have a large red widget page that only links to the widget page, and no others.
    And you will have long pink rocket page that links to the rocket page and no others.

    And the widget page and the rocket page shouldn't link to anything at all except affiliate product that they are selling.

    Does that sum it up?

    Are you suggesting that if someone is on a limited budget, that it would be better to spend the money on Quality Content then on buying Quality backlinks?

    Actually, the page I was referring to is here:
    https://socialtriggers.com/start-here/

    This seems like a very good homepage layout, internal links to money pages and important info ( I was confused, I thought that was the homepage).
