News related gag cartoons increase traffic

Post by LeahG on Sat 26 Jun - 21:59

I've noticed my news related cartoons (very few and far between) are the best traffic pulls (at the time the news breaks) than any other toons, and often the traffic is searching specifically for gag cartoons on those news topics.

Thus if you want more traffic to your blog/webiste or you want a major publication to notice you, you can do no worse than try very hard to dream up gags based on recently released news stories and ongoing news story sagas.

It's very important when you publish your gag cartoons that you headline/title them so that searchengines can direct people to them.

Ie if you draw a gag cartoon about the oil spill, you must in title say:

Gag cartoon oil spill or funny oil spill cartoon

This might not be a very unique title but it is the title that will help search engines find you as when people are looking for gag cartoons re oil spill the words they enter in their searchbar will reflect those mentioned.

Yeah, I find that sort of titling works as well...quite a generic search term I think!

Yep and if you want to grab attention once the generic phrase shows up in the searchengine results so your result is clicked, tag something groovy on the end or beginning and weave it into that phrase:

ie:

Upside of oil spill is that bird flu is on the decline.........funny oil spill / bird flu gag cartoon

(this way you get the bird flu and oil spill traffic)

With your own blog posts

people will find them re terms like:

egyptian cartoon
fat lady cartoon
Dog cartoon

and so on,

they will also be looking for scenarios

relationship cartoon
marital strife cartoon

so if you have a cartoon featuring a fat lady arguing with her hubby, you might say:

funny husband and wife arguing cartoon - fat lady gag cartoon

It's dull but people do not enter niche, witty terms when searching for things, they break it down into simple blocks and the closer your title resembles those blocks the better BUT don't forget ranking high is only one part of the problem, the other is getting them to click on you.

Example.

I was writing article abour photocopier problems hence those keywords needed to be in the title ie: 'photocopier problems'

Boring title right?

Hence new title:

My photocopier ate my hamster - room 101 photocopier problems

(or something like this)

Basically identify the key elements as well as the scenario and then give it a twist

ie:

Fat lady arguing with man about fish - your plaice or mine? Funny gag cartoon
