3 Easy Steps To Get Your First 10k Visitors From Google

 3 Easy Steps To Get Your First 10k Visitors From Google

3 Easy Steps To Get Your First 10k Visitors From Google


Are you new to blogging or you just created your first blog and want to get organic visitors from Google? Here are 3 easy steps that will help you achieve that.

Read below.

Step 1: Finding the right keywords

If you pick the wrong keywords, you’ll find yourself with little to no traffic and, even worse, you’ll find yourself with little to no visits.
These keywords are used in helping your blog to rank high and making it visible on Google first page for visitors to click.
You can find rankable keywords using tools such as Ubersuggest


Step 2: Write content

At this point, you should have a list of keywords. At least 100 keywords per group.

It’s not that hard to get to 100 similar keywords that you can include in one article. It just takes some time to continually search and find them.

In general, as a rule of thumb, I can find 100 keywords in less than 8 minutes. It may take you a bit longer than me at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’ll be easy.

With your newly found keywords, I want you to write an article.

As for your keywords, naturally place them into the article when it makes sense.

What you’ll quickly learn is that you probably won’t be able to “naturally” include all 100 keywords within your article. And that’s fine.


The last thing you want to do is stuff in keywords because you aren’t writing this article for just search engines, you are writing it for people… and the secondary benefit is that search engines will rank it because it contains the right keywords.

Before you make your article live on your site, I want you to keep a few things in mind:

Keep your URLs short – Google prefers shorter URLs.

Include your main keyword in your headline – by having your main keyword in your headline, you’ll be more likely to rank higher.

Include your three main keywords in your meta tags – whether it is your title tag or meta description, include at least three main keywords in them. You won’t fit as many in your title tag, and that’s fine, but you should be able to within your meta description tag.
There are a lot of other things you can do to optimize your articles for SEO, but my goal is to keep this simple. Again, if you just follow these three steps, you’ll hit the 10,000-visitor mark.

So, for now, let’s just keep things simple and once you hit your goal, then you can get into the advanced stuff.

Step 3: Promoting your content

Writing content is only half the battle. Even if you include the right keywords in your article, if you don’t promote, it’s unlikely that it would be read or rank on Google.

So how do you make sure your content is read and ranks well?

Well, first you need to get social shares, and second, you need to get backlinks.

Yes, search engines don’t necessarily rank pages higher when they get more Facebook shares or tweets, but the more eyeballs that see your page the more likely you are to get backlinks.

And the more backlinks you get, generally, the higher you will rank.

How To Get Back Hacked Whatsapp Account

 How To Get Back Hacked Whatsapp Account

How To Recover Hacked Whatsapp Account

Has your Whatsapp Account been hacked? Cry no more.
These days everyone seems to be a victim of hacked accounts. Before it used to be just Facebook accounts that were being targeted by hackers, but now they have migrated to whatsapp. 

WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps in the world. It is owned by Facebook and has more than 2 billion users worldwide.
A lot of people have ignorantly fallen victim to this menace.

How Do Hackers Gain Access To Your Account?

The hackers tries to register your whatsapp number on their phone and a six digit code is then sent to you as a security measure to confirm if you are really the one that's trying to register on a new device.
Once the code has been sent, the hacker then tries to trick you to give them the code using different methods. 
One of the major trick they use is that they will tell you they registered you for an online business where you will be paid daily or weekly if you invest your money and all they need at that mode is your registration code which was sent to you.
Once you ignorantly fall for their trick and send them the code, you have just given them full permission to access and register your account on their device and once this is done, WhatsApp will automatically log you out from your own device. This is because no one Account can be used on two phones at the same time.

If you didn't set up two-step verification on your account, getting back your account at that moment will not be possible because as soon as the hacker successfully registers your account on his/her phone, the first thing the hacker will do so to set up two-step verification and this will make him have uninterrupted usage of your account for as long as the hacker wants.

Here are the few ways you can get back your whatsapp account:

  • Once you find out that your account have been hacked and you've been logged out, the next thing to do is to re-register your whatsapp on your phone and a six-digit verification code will be sent to you via SMS which whatsapp detects and logs you in automatically, while the hacker gets logged out.
  • If the hacker has already enabled two-step verification on your account, you will have to wait for seven days before you can get your account back.
  • In a case whereby you are unable to receive the verification code and the hacker forgot to enable two step verification on your account, you can deactivate your account.
  • To deactivate your account, send an email to Whatsapp Support at [email protected] with the title “Lost/Stolen" & "Pls deactivate my account” in the body. You should get a quick response within 5 minutes in which they will ask for the affected Whatsapp number.
  • Deactivation email to Whatsapp Support
  • Once the account gets deactivate, the hacker will no longer have access to the account and you will have to wait for 30 days before you can reactivate your account.
  • If the hacker has already setup two step verification after accessing your account, the deactivation won't work. You will have to wait for 7 days before deactivating it.

Measures To Keep Your Whatsapp Account safe

  • Once you get hacked and your process of getting back the account failed, the next thing to do is to inform your friends and family through phone call about it, so that they won't fall victim. This is because the hacker will be chatting with them and your friends will think you are the one, not knowing you have been hacked.
  • Never ever give someone your verification code, no matter the person.
  • Ensure you have enabled two-step verification on your account and keep the pin given to you very safe.
  • Always check to make sure your account is not being accessed through whatsapp web. You can do this by clicking the 3 dots at the top right of your whatsapp, select whatsapp web. If you find out you are logged in on any browser, quickly click on log out of computer and all devices, if you are sure you are not the one that logged your account on any computer.
