How I Generate 18,800 Visitors from Google Without SEO or Ads

{ object.primary_image.title }}

If you want to get traffic from Google, how would you go about it? Chances are you are either going to leverage SEO or pay for some ads. But what if there was another way to get traffic from Google? A way that didn’t take as long as SEO and didn’t cost money like paid ads. And no, I’m not talking about Google News… there is actually an easier way . It’s so effective that it drove 18,800 visitors to my site in the last 3 months. Just look at the screenshot above. So, what is it? Google Discover Similar to how you have feeds on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, did you know Google has a feed for you. It’s called Google Discover. If you mainly use Google on your laptop or desktop computer, chances are you haven’t seen it. But if you have the Google mobile app or the Chrome mobile app, you probably have already seen it. Here’s what it looks like on an iPhone: This is Google’s version of a social feed. Here’s how it works … Google Discover results, which appear below the search box on the Google mobile app and Chrome mobile app, show a summary of web pages as cards. These cards are a scrollable list of topics, almost like a social feed, that you can browse on your mobile devices. Tapping one of these cards from Google search home will send you directly to the page you just clicked on. And if you are wondering why you are seeing certain stories that others may not be, it’s because the recommendations are based on search history, interactions with Google products, and who you choose to follow directly via Google Discover. But here is where it’s getting interesting… Google Discover is everywhere, you just don’t know it Discover results for some topics also appear within the search engine results under the label “Interesting finds.” If you click one of these stories, it’ll take you directly to that web page, or, if you click to see “more stories” at the bottom of the Interesting Finds card, it’ll bring you to a new Google Discover user interface where you can follow that topic, follow related topics, and explore related Discover listings. Now if you have a Pixel phone, you’ve seen Discover a lot, but again you just haven’t realized it. By simply swiping right on your Pixel …
