Writers! Build a Free Traffic Generating Network, Part Three!


So, today I am going to share with you the basic recipes I set up in my own and in ever surrogate IFTTT account, whether they be for clients, or pen names that I have established for marketing purposes. But, before I get into that, let me show you what I am finding out so far in my stats.
I have worked exclusively with my writing blog, MarkRMorrisJr.com a blog that has recently been migrated from hosted Wordpress to Blogger. Since that time my traffic had been negligent, at best. In the past week, since setting up just three surrogate accounts in IFTTT following the formula I have been sharing, and the recipes I will share today, here are the results.

The increase was instant!
As you can see, the traffic increased dramatically, from about three or four hits a day on average, with some days getting zero, to a minimum of 15 and a high of over 50 hits in one day. So, it’s working and I will keep you up to date on that as it progresses. I intend to add four more surrogate accounts for next week, and four more the week after for a total of 12. It remains to be seen if they can build sustainable traffic.
And that’s not even the main benefit of this method.
The IFTTT SEO network is still in its infancy and the backlink mojo I am building up to for this site is going to be out of this world. I need to fine tune some things about the way I am posting here to get the most out of it. So how about those RECIPES I promised?
Each recipe will be listed in this format.
If this (the name of a channel and any other info you need) then than (the name of a channel and any info you need) I will give as much detail as I can, please feel free to ask questions in the comments. Thanks! In all of the following examples, RSS feed=your blog, or the money site you are looking to promote. It can be almost any page that has updating content and an RSS fee, for me, it is THIS site.
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Facebook link post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Facebook pages link post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Twitter link post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Linked IN link post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Blogger post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Wordpress post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Tumblr post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Diigo link)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Pocket link)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Instapaper post)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Buffer link)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Delicious link)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Bitly bitmark)
If THIS= (RSS feed) then THAT= (Evernote link)

Those are the basics. I also spend a little time on each Facebook surrogate, sharing, liking and commenting, as well as building the friends, pages and groups of each account. Mass Planner can automate a lot of this if you set it up.
So there you have it in a nutshell, how to build an IFTTT network.
For each of the Blogger, Wordpress and Tumblr sites in each account, you will need to find at least two other sources of content. The easiest thing to do is to find industry niche blogs that don’t compete with you, but share good information and set them up to share some posts, based on keywords. You can do this by finding the RSS feed of the website you want to share on your blog, then setting it up in IFTTT, just like you did your own blog.
EVEN BETTER IDEA!
For each surrogate account, set up the blog to share everything as a “draft post”, then go in, write an introduction, share a bit from the other blog, write a tag line with your call to action and then schedule it to share. When it shares, you can set up the RSS feed to filter back through the other sites, propogating your content even further.
