One of the questions I get from my readers recently is how to get free website traffic from specific geographical regions or countries. This question came up because in this post, I made it clear that some advertisers are very much interested in geographical source of our traffic before making up their minds to buy space on our blogs.

So I said to myself instead of giving individual answers to mails and comments, creating this post will be a better idea to respond to the queries once and for all.

An Indian blogger who is physically located somewhere in his country can effectively create a blog that gets more of its traffic from US or Canada or any region other than where he is.

Now, how important is this? you may ask…

People have businesses that target specific markets in specific regions. Local businesses like restaurant, supermarkets, hotels, etc may want more exposure in their geo areas of coverage.

Hotels in Galveston Island or Alvarado in Texas may not be interested in travelers to some other cities or states, for instance.

People in different geographical locations generally have different purchasing power and facilities. Africa for instance is generally known for it lack of online payment facilities and low purchasing power. This also is true for most Indian and Asian bloggers.

USA, Canada and most European countries on the other hand have more developed societies with facilities that encourage online spending.

In order to make more sales and profits, most businesses may want to get their products exposed to markets in areas with bright business representation.

Geo-targeting is a very crucial factor in online business. Let me be very blunt here;

I’m from Cameroon, in Africa. I have a lot of blogging friends and readers in Nigeria. Nigeria’s online facilities are far more developed. That explains why more Nigerians buy online than Cameroonians

But globally, these 2 countries are barely scratching the surface.  The bitter truth is, if most of your traffic is coming from Nigeria or Cameroon, you are going to be very unsuccessful attracting advertisers to your blog.

While blogging from Douala in Cameroon, I have more of my traffic coming from USA, UK, Canada, India.  How do I get more readers from these areas?

free website traffic

Free website traffic from specific regions

There are several ways to pull free traffic from any area you choose to target but let’s look at 4 of these;

1 – Provide content for readers in that area

This is the best way (in my opinion) to attract readers from a certain region. You have to create the kind of content that will attract them. The more local content you publish, the more local readers you get.

Think of business like car repair shops in columbus ohio. That’s a typical keyword that can bring huge local traffic from columbus ohio. Now if you are an automobile blogger, it will be very easy to create a blog that pulls traffic from a certain city. That means you can have huge business with car repair shops, car rentals, car sales, etc in that area.

You may want to create a blog dedicated to restaurants in Atlanta, for instance. That alone is a hot keyword that can pull huge targeted local traffic.

What will I be writing about?

Simple! Visit the restaurants, conduct interviews, write about their menus, environment, facilities, etc and before you know it, you’ll be having a huge and hot database of restaurants in that area. Ain’t you seeing big business in this?

2 – Be active on blogs that get traffic from that area

If you want more of your traffic to come from the US, for instance, apart from providing content that attracts US readers, be active on other blogs that have US readers. The more you drop reasonable comments on these blogs, the more you expose yourself to the readers in this area.  This of course will help you get more traffic from them.

3 – Interact with more bloggers in the targeted area

This is simply logical. If you want traffic from UK, create relationships with more UK bloggers. Feature them on your blog, run interviews, share their posts, join UK based bloggers communities, publish on UK blogs, etc

4 – Create geo-targeted Twitter accounts

You can create Twitter accounts that only get followers from specific countries. This may be a time eater but gradually and with time, it’s possible to have an account where 90% of your followers come from a specific region. That means each time your post is shared to that account, you are sure to have traffic tied to that area.

There are lots of Twitter apps out there to help you create accounts with supper geo-targeted followers. I do not have any to recommend at the moment. If you have any suggestion, please drop the name in the comment box.

These are some of the ways you can generate free traffic from specific geographical locations.

What about paid traffic?

Well, this is about the easiest way to gain traffic to your blog or e-commerce store from highly targeted locations. Most PPC (social or search), PPV, etc have the facilities to help you target countries and cities. This will enable you create campaigns that will only expose your products to dwellers of specific regions.

Now, for bloggers in niches that target a broader audience  and may not require any form of geo targeting, I think there is still need to be interested in traffic from certain areas. In Internet Marketing and make money online niche for instance, if you want to attract advertisers or Adsense ads with high CPC, you’ll need to show interest in traffic from the United States, Canada, etc. That’s just how it is!

Let me hear from you…

Do you think you need free targeted website traffic to your website or blog? What are the methods you have in place to get more traffic from desired locations? If you are an advertiser, do you think it’s important to buy space on any popular blog without paying attention to geographical traffic sources?

This is another amazing post. What shall I say? You’re absolutely correct my friend. In fact, recently a reader asked me about the region where I get the most traffic. And when I told her US, she was like, she thought it would be Nigeria. I had to explain in a similar way why most of my traffic comes from the US.

Google webmasters tool is also a good resource that can help you get targeted traffic from specific countries, along with that people who use Bing, there is also an option in Bing webmaster tools.

Getting backlinks from those countries websites can also help our website rank better in those locations.

Hi Enstine,

Why is it that whenever i choose to give up on getting traffic from out my region (Nigeria), your blog comes up as a life saver.

I decided to set up a new blog because my former blog is targeting mainly West African countries most especially clicks from Nigeria which is becoming terrible due to falling clicks rate.

I love this phrase;

“The bitter truth is, if most of your traffic is coming from Nigeria or Cameroon, you are going to be very unsuccessful attracting advertisers to your blog.”

My eyes are now open and i have choose one of the best high paying keyword and am targeting USA, Canada and UK which i know fully well it won’t be easy for me but in time, i know i will get there.

Thank You

traffic or the facebook group members are they from US?

Additionally to your points, i will totally agreed with your suggestions to try to drive traffic from US, Canada and most European countries on the other hand have more developed societies with facilities that encourage online spending.

Lastly, keep uncover useful to your blog followers.

Solid points; while you do not want to exclude any country from your blog; the source of your traffic can either make or break your blogging venture.Getting good traffic from key countries goes a far way for online sucess.
I also suggest that for the country of choice that you are targeting you find a social network thats dominant in that region; usually not facebook and meet frends; join their groups and share your content.
Solid point on writing articles for the region you are targeting.

Obviously if you have a budget you may buy targeted traffic from anywhere in the world via AdWords, however is recommended to hire an AdWords specialist to ensure a good ROI, for example if you want sales you may consider CPC based advertising, if you want brand awareness a CPM campaign is the way to go.

Very interesting on how to get free traffic. I like the idea of interacting with blogs that have traffic from the area you want. You can always use FB advertising and target geographically. I have tried that and I am not impressed, its all about spending. Throw the money and watch the traffic dance.
The more money you are willing to spend on these platforms be if FB, Twitter or StumbleUpon, the more geo-targeted traffic you can obtain.
My personal experience is the United States of America VS the rest of the world. If you are selling Amazon products then don’t bother with any country accept USA and somewhat UK, the rest of the world including Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia don’t even come in the picture. India is better than the 4 mentioned regions combined together.
For more geo-targeted traffic try Reddit and Newsvine, they are pretty good. And of course target the bloggers of the country you want. Join related groups on FB and forums and be active.

It occurred to me as I was reading your extremely well written post. That a little testing and tracking is in order, so that you’ll only spend your non replaceable time and effort, targeting the most receptive geographical areas to your particular offerings!

And “how” the potential advertising component (if one) had the time, could be an entirely new service for the right kind of software companies!

As you strategically point out, it won’t do anyone any good to advertise and or market to a potential pool of consumers, that for whatever reasons, don’t currently have (either) the interest or financial means to take advantage of whatever you have to offer!

Lots of sound business principles to consider! Thanks for sharing!

Mr.Enstine,
Blogging is a big ambition for many advanced thinkers. Internet development is the great for their expressions and self satisfaction. But they should earn money for better living. It is good idea to target the audience by country, region, group wise etc. But, mass audience with unable to spend is not going to make the bloggers life good. Local business are already overcrowded in countries like India and mass customers are having
decided method to live cheap as per their limited income. So monetizing and targeting the able money spenders in each country is very necessary. Can you please brain storm on this line and write something ? Thanking you.

I didn’t set out to get traffic from particular geographical areas Enstine but it has worked out that way.

Most of my traffic comes from the US and then UK, India, Canada and Australia.

You’re right that it depends on how broad your niche is.

Certainly I can see a highly targeted site based on specific countries and even cities would be potentially easier to rank well with.

It also makes sense to spend most of your time commenting on sites within the geographic area you’re trying to target and similarly engaging with people in those ares on social media.

Geographical source of traffic is what local businesses ought to achieve. Aside from tools, using websites, and being active, more ways are available. When you publish and update on your social media accounts geo-tagging and hashtags can be used, they are easy.

The results of high traffic from western countries are rewarding. Whenever I check my Adsense account, I see the difference. When I get 1000 visits from India then I earn $0.20 if there are no clicks whereas if they are from U.S.A then I earn $1 or more.

I do agree paid advertising is the best to get targeted ads from specific countries. I have learnt today about getting targeted followers from twitter. That is so amazing- with all these tips one can really grow.

Hello Enstine,

You are very correct about both Nigeria and Cameroun…when I started out, I made a very silly mistake of seeking traffic from Nigeria above all other countries – that was in some way patriotic but very unproductive in the end.

Now, my strategy is quite simple: I run a plethora of other sites where I target Nigerians in particular. For my main/general sites, its US, Canada and Australia!

Always,

Hi Enstine,

Getting traffic from select countries has always been of interest to me. When I started out earning with AdSense, traffic from India couldn’t just help me earn big.

Soon, I learnt that traffic from USA and Canada was what my blogger friends were targeting. Soon, I found that with traffic from those countries, AdSense earning can increase tremendously!

That’s when I consciously started working towards achieving that target. Writing and serving content for people of those places definitely helps. So does interacting with bloggers from there. These two things worked out well for me.

Creating geo targeted Twitter accounts is a new concept for me. Will sure give it a try! 🙂

One of the best ways of getting the free traffic is by following the number 2 tips shared: “Be active on blogs that get traffic from that area”. For me this is fundamental as other tips may hinge around it.

    Hi Sunday,
    Thanks for the comment 😉

    The second point you underlined is quite easy to follow. If you don’t want traffic from an area, just don’t drop comments on blogs that get traffic from that area. Well, that may not be reasonable enough but I guess it’s just one of the methods 😉

    Thanks for the engagement on kingged.com

I can’t agree more with you on this topic. To get traffic from a target area then you have to target that area with local keywords that will bring people searching for suck content from such target areas to arrive at your blog.

Also creating a targeted social media campaign can as well expose your blog to people from a target area and can bring you huge traffic from such areas. These are really practical ways to get traffic from a specific area of the world.

Hi Enstine,

You’re absolutely right that the geographical area that you’re targeting matters a lot to the advertisers who’d be interested in your blog.

My most traffic come from United States and India; whereas Alexa shows India as the favorite, my Google Analytics puts the US at the top of my traffic originating countries.

I guess your Geo-targetting option in the Google webmasters tool would also matter, wouldn’t it? Your blog might more likely to appear in search of your selected country, isn’t it?

Your tips on getting free traffic from your specifically targeted regions are right on spot. Again, blog commenting proves to be a boon and the best way to make favorable connections.

I did not know about the Geo-targeted Twitter accounts and this is some news to me. I do look forward to traffic from the English speaking countries, but when I analyzed my blog stats and found that people come to my blog even from the non-English speaking countries, I put up a language translator too on the blog. So, you need to keep looking at your stats and check the direction you need to take the blog to.

Thanks for this important and useful post. Where your traffic comes from is important. 🙂

    Hi Harleena,
    I have noticed these differences with my traffic sources too. As per Alexa, India is first why Google Analytics puts USA on top of the list. Whatever the case, I think traffic from USA makes the best option.

    Building geo-targeted twitter accounts is a great way to get traffic from those areas. TweetAdder makes the process quite simple. Have you tried this software before?

    I think the move to install the language translator on your blog is very positive. This helps you get and maintain traffic from diverse locations while taking care of your readers

    Good to see you around this day Harleena and thanks for the mail you sent earlier today. I’ll be shooting a reply shortly

Yup I agree with most of the steps and what about the webmaster tools option which will help us to target a specific country. I am going to try out the twitter application for a new blog which is in initial stage and will let you know the results. Another quality post from you 😀

Hi Enstine,
This is nice. Actually as per point number #3 some of countries have few bloggers and if they are there then you do not connect it can narrow traffic rate from your targeted audience. But how they connect matter and that is why we should all try and find each other.
Another thing is that they do not want to share baring in mind that they are competitors.

Hi Ensitine !!!
This is surely a nice way to get that free traffic. Of Course, If we provide the content for the reader in that particular region, we will not miss their visits on our blog.

Making twitter account will consume a lot of time and it will become difficult to handle those twitter handlers. I think that’s not a good approach for it. What a person can follow is to provide the content, that the people wants for their need.

Thanks for the guide by the way !!!

    Hi Ravi,
    Building targeted Twitter accounts may be slow as I pointed out but those accounts will be very productive in the feature. It’s of no use to rush things and have accounts with 1000s of followers who don’t click your links. I prefer slow and highly targeted accounts

    Thanks for sharing your point bro. I’m always so excited to see you in person on my blog. Do have a wonderful week

hi. muki. great you answered my question. i think the first method is the best way. but i may ask, how can you identify what readers in that area wan’t?.

    Enstine Muki

    That’s a great question Emmanuel. I think there are keyword programs that can give you details what users from specific areas search for. In addition, if you are in an area, you will certainly know the kind of businesses that do well in that area. For instance, I know in any city, people have cars – therefore maintenance and repair services are among the top services wanted.

    Physical activities in an area will always point you to which services are most wanted in that area

Hi Enstine,

That’s a very interesting topic, and I can understand how being from some countries you would want to attract traffic where it is. I was thinking that even if I was in France, I would still write in English to attract the English speaking market, but I would probably also have a special page/site in French.

I didn’t know about TweetAdder, but will surely check it out!

Thank you for this very original topic 🙂

    Hi Sylviane,
    You’ve got an interesting post there on time management. I recommend my readers check that out 😉

    TweetAdder is an interesting app to build super targeted Twitter accounts. I encourage using it to create new accounts. Don’t use it with your main account for security reasons 😉

It is foolish to target american traffic if you were not there or not lived that life. Instead of that i would target my country specific traffic if i live the life of my country-india. Am i right enstine?

    Hi Rakesh,
    That will hugely depend on your niche I think, and where you live. You can target India and do well but for me, I can’t target my country and do well. The reason is that the Internet activities here are still below average. Most people don’t use the Internet as a real business tool.

    You see most of my readers are from India, your country and US. I have never been to these places before. That’s because my niche is broader. If I were in the automobile niche for instance, it will be more flourishing to streamline my target to my area.

    What about that?

I think there is another way to get traffic of your required region. Google webmaster offers the option to set your target region for traffic. If you don’t set it will be without any target but after setting it will focus that area but equally focus other areas if searches from other regions match with your contents. yes there is one drawback of this option. You can’t set target more than one country, it I am not wrong.
The tips you mentioned in this post are really awesome. Specially the Twitter’s one is quite new for me; otherwise I was just following those who are from my target regions just hoping the Follow back

Hey mate,

Great article! Looking interesting. I have yet to try TweetAdder since I am messing around with several tools now.

However, love your geo targeting method.

Thanks for sharing!
