How GEO Targeting Can Triple Your Traffic To Your Blog

Geo Targeting Compels Your Visitors To Read Your Blog, Click Your Ads & Links!

Geo targeting, or geographical targeting, is a way for website or blog to display content specific for a visitor’s geographical location. This targeted content can be in the form of advertising, breaking news or just about anything.

Why Is Geo Targeting Your Ads Beneficial To You

When you think about it there are hundreds of reasons why Geo targeting your ads is a good idea:

  • You can show English ads to English speaking countries, Spanish ads to Spanish speaking countries and so on. Showing ads in your visitor’s native language will give you a massive increase in CTR and ad revenue.
  • You might have a blog with 30% UK visitors and you may have a really good ad aimed at the UK market – but it would not make sense to use since you would miss out on revenue from the other 70% of your visitors. But if you Geo Target your ads you can get the best of both worlds.
  • If you have already built a respectable blog with good traffic but has low conversion rate, then Geo Targeting can almost immediately convert it into leads, sales and affiliate commissions.

A Fresh Approach

Sometimes all you need is a fresh approach. Something your visitors haven’t seen before…Something that makes your blog stand out from the crowd. With so much competition in your niche, this can only help your business move ahead of your competitors.

There is a now a new WordPress plugin that allows you to easily Geo Target your ads very easily.

When a visitor comes to your blog and sees for example their own City in your titles, posts, footers, widgets it offers greater opportunities to bring your ads or important message to your audience. It makes you stand out from the crowd and they are much more likely to pay attention to what you have to say. The old way of using images, arrows, bolded text do not work anymore as people are now quite blind to them.

You also instantly become much more relevant to them and they will tend to trust you more … In their eyes it looks like you built a blog specifically for people in their area – you could be the nice guy living next door.

How Does The Covert Geo Targeter Plugin Work For You

1.  First of all the Covert Geo Targeter is a super simple to use and install (1 click install) WordPress plugin. That means the software will work on any computer, all you need in order to use it, is a self hosted WordPress blog.

2. All you need to do is generate an API key, which will then identify your visitor’s unique IP address to identify him in the exact city, region, country that he lives.

3. Then you will be given just 4 short codes to use on your blog to display your visitor’s Geo information anywhere on your blog. That is where you can get creative and add some accompany text with these short codes and capture your visitor’s attention, lead and purchase of your product. Here is an example of how you may write it if you have a blog that you are targeting on some Amazon products e.g. computer software:

Get 68% Discount For Customers In [imwb_cgt_cityName], [imwb_cgt_regionName]

will display this text when it is published:

Get 68% Discount For Customers In Illionis, USA

if your visitor resides and logins his computer in Illionis, USA. Similarly for others in other countries will see their own city.country displayed.

Now all I had to do was place one of the 4 specific shortcodes with some meaningful text and it displays for you at that specific location of your content. You can place it in your blog contents, post/page title, footer, or your sidebar to attract your visitor’s attention and action. Most visitors would be attracted by seeing their own city, country and will click it to find out more.  How powerful is that?

Just to show you an example of how I put an image of an Amazon product that I sell well on the right side bar of my Amazon blog:

“Paya Lebar, Singapore” is where I live, but whoever visits my blog will see this showing as his own city, country.

GEO Targeting Plugin Helps to bring more search engine traffic too….

Here is the undeniable proof I found (see image below). Someone who lives in Toronto, Ontario was searching for ‘car seats in Toronto’ and here is how he landed on my blog because of my Geo Targeting at work. The text I had put on that post was “Special promotion for customers in [city], [country]”:

So go check out the innovative wordpress plugin that sells it less than $10 but only at a limited time and it’s on a dime sale. This means that every sale will increase the price of this plugin and eventually reaching $47.

I strongly recommend this wordpress plugin as I have installed in on my Amazon wordpress blog and the result is really good. Anyway you can just try it out to see just how easy it is to bring more leads and sales to your business. There is no risk as your small investment is backed up by a full 45 day money back guarantee – You will be ordering with confidence and this eliminates any kind of risk on your part.

Again the link to this plugin

Take action before the price goes up to $47 and let me know what you think of it after you used it.

    Hi Peter, I’ve set-up the Geo targeting for my blog via Google Webmaster Tools, is this will help much?

    • Peter Lee says:

      They serve 2 different purposes. The geo targeting that Google Webmaster Tools allow you to do is more to let Google know the correct signals as to determine that the content of your website is relevant to which location. In the past Google used to rely on where your website was hosted to determine your business location. This is deemed not accurate as many businesses are operated different from the country of registration. So that’s why the Geo targeting tool in Google Webmaster Tools helps that aspect.

      On the contrary this new Geo plugin is more to help in your marketing aspect of your business whenever a visitor lands on your blog. Your visitor gets to see the text which you will put like e.g. ” Customers in [city], [region] gets 20 percent discount ….your customer then feels like as though your website is targeting only their specific country…..this helps in getting much higher conversion rate to any product and service that you are promoting on your blog.

    Is there any wordpress version requirement for this geo targeting tool or it can be installed on any wordpress version?

    • Peter Lee says:

      I think it has only been tested on 3.0 and above. If you haven’t updated to 3.0 by now though, you really should because you are opening your blog up to a lot of issues with hacking and abuse.

  7. I think it’s very good idea to more traffic and achieve the best one.

  8. GhaflaGuy says:

    This is a great idea. However I’m not sure if Google Analytics shows conclusive data for GEO targeting campaigns. Someone please confirm this?

    • Peter Lee says:

      I asked the plugin developer your question and here is the answer:

      “Google’s data on geo location is not 100% accurate for the same reason our plugin will never be 100% accurate. People can hide their location, people are moving around in this global world and so on.

      However Google probably has the best geo location database in the world – if you Analytics shows ie. 30% from the UK, it’s pretty safe to say that is correct (near enough to not matter anyway)”

  9. yes!
