Here is my personal Tip on how to get instant visitors from the search engines like google.com to a brand new domain which is not even indexed and needs indexing.
This website was purchased on 3rd April evening today after 72 hours and 2 blog posts i have got 15 unique visitors from google.com with almost 0 backlinks 🙂
Attached is the screenshot for that –
Now many people will be confused how is this possible as there are many SEO’s who believe in “sandbox” and iam a person who never believed in Sandbox kind of thing in the search engines optimization.
How did i start for this website is got a backlink from an authority website so the bots can find it asap and index the whole website within 24 hours and never go for an paid backlink but a backlinks which is kind of natural one.
Add your latest posts link in the top 3 social bookmarking sites(find them from your own research 😉 ) and try to maintain as much unique stuff you can, as this helps your website gain good rankings.
This small stuff is just enough for you to get natural traffic from the search engines and to make visitors come back to your website add tools like – Add to bookmark, Del.icio.us and other bookmarking related tools, as this option can get you returning visitors.
Again taking this website as example you can find that Alexa.com has crawled this website already and has given an Alexa Rank of 91,405 within 48 hours of this launch and now this will be updated on a daily basis, and the trick for getting alexa crawl your website asap is to have an alexa widget on your website on the sidebar or on the pages where you expect a higher amount of web traffic.
Though many webmasters feel Alexa is an inaccurate tool to track any websites ranking based on traffic, but this is the only tool which is publicly open and the only service which we need to depend on.
I guess these couple points are enough for you to get an idea on how to get natural organic search results traffic and how to make visitors come back to your website.
Do let me know if iam wrong in some point as the points which i have stated are based on my own experiance and you may get different results on your tests 🙂 , but giving a try is not wrong as i always feel if you feed good content to the search engines via your websites they would obviously rank you higher than the other websites.
Good post Amit, but you misunderstand few things.
You can easily manage alexa to show good rankings. You started the website this month only. You/your designer might have kept refreshing/visiting the website couple of times everyday until the end of web designing. That’s the reason it shows 83.3% visitors from India( and its you). I bet your designer is from romania (Romania16.7%), am i right?
2) Google Traffic
You use 301 redirect from your PR4 old site(amitpatel.info). Don’t you know PR as well SERP will get passed to new one? Search DP for rich jerk scam.
Are you ready to clarify this?

Well, this is a free wordpress theme and hence i dont have any designer, and these were couple basic tips, and if you think iam wrong i can prove this again with a new domain too 🙂
This post was basically made to prove a point which was made in the SEO meet 2007 during an presentation made by vaibhav kakkar – http://www.amitbhawani.com/seo-meet-in-new-delhi-rocked-complete-story/
Yes, i do know Alexa can be boosted but i dont think it can be boosted below a certain limit and refreshing/visiting the same page couple times a day does not help it give more serps.
opps… i missed the meet.
i may be wrong with alexa
however, what about the 301 redirect you used at your old domain?
Did you read http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showpost.php?p=2101180&postcount=209
you are right with the 301 redirect and this is the first time iam doing it as to check one test on which we had an big discussion.
From my experiance this is a website (http://www.bollywoodnews.us/) which had no 301 redirects and still recieved around ~20 uniques within 48 hours of its launch.
If you need i can show you the screenshots of the website too 🙂 and its not always every website can go into sandbox and cannot get instant visitors from the search engines.
WOW. what a instant response!
From my view, sandbox does apply to sites which target most popular/searchable key phrases. If your site target a keyword “asdfpoird xjkd”, then you will not go into sandbox. Definitely you will be shown even at #1.
If you target a ringtone/mobile/credit/mortages/loan websites, you will experience sandbox. Just my .02.
Amit Bhawani says
In this point i think you are wrong because there is nothing like most popular keyword, because when you optimise a website you need to target with keyword phrases first and then when your site has adequate backlinks, content and on page seo is done, you can see your sites rankings boosted in the search engines.
My website http://www.gii.in when it was new i started targetting a keyword phrase – Global Internet Index and many people quoted that an .In(tld) domain name cannot rank in the top of the search engines, but after 6months i see the site never got into Sandbox and now ranks for many many keywords currently giving me more than 1000 uniques /day from google.
Check out some of the SERPS for http://www.gii.in in http://www.google.com for the keywords –
Business India Web Directory
Business Web Directory
Indian Web Directory
Global Internet Index
Global Internet Index Directory
and many more 🙂 , still do you think we should not target big with a new website? 🙂
Amit,now it goes off topic. You claimed in the post that you got natural traffic even without spending a penny for promotion.
But for gii, you have spent more than $5000 to buy blog posts, sitewides, directory listings, home page lnks and etc. In other words you people are simply trying to cheat search engines in the name of SEO. You trick the SEs to believe your inbound links as natural links (say blog posts).
Getting thousands of paid links in order to artificially manipulate the SERPS will not stand for all time. Only the good unique content will survive at that time.
See directory.google.com, did they buy millions of links to keep them first in SERPs? Absolutely no. Thats a kind of natural links. It will stand out even after the algorithm modification in future.
In case you haven’t done any of this tricks and got nice organic traffic to your directory, I would accept your argument and believe your directory as a high quality one.
As of now, only money influences the SERPs and you people believe it indicates quality/strong website.
Sorry amit, if it hurts you in anyway.
Amit Bhawani says
Seems you missed this point then – (http://www.bollywoodnews.us/) which had no 301 redirects and still recieved around ~20 uniques within 48 hours of its launch.
This site was given only the bookmarking backlinks and got SE traffic 🙂
and yes, nothing hurts me until i gain some new tricks & knowledge 😉
Yep, It is enough for SEs to find/index your website. But… (don’t reveal the secret that 75% of the del.icio.us bookmarks are made by exchanging bookmarks with another webmasters.)
Back to topic… Are you sure that you received hits for competitive key phrases or 1/2 word phrases?
I guess that you had received hits only for phrases containing more than 3 words. Otherwise you have no strong competitor for your keyword.
Can you prove that you received hits for competitive terms with in a week or two by only bookmark backlinks?
Amit Bhawani says
Did i ever say that i recieved the visitors for the top keywords 😉 refer to the above comments 😀
Note that your site doesn’t show alexa rank when I use search status plugin. The alexa rank(9xxxx) you have got may be transferred from the old domain. I am not sure though.
Anyway amit, I liked your article and just wanted to point out few mistakes from my view. Letz conclude this arguement. Otherwise we can have a IM chat.
I appreciate your interest in helping other webmasters.
Good luck amit.
Amit Bhawani says
Basically i dont know your IM, and so you need to add me there 🙂
Regarding Alexa it can never be transferred like a PR 😉
Iam getting Alexa because of maybe 3 reasons :
New Website – Many Visitors
Returning Visitors + Bookmarked ones
SEO Meet Updates & Money Making tips
Oh yes, thanks for the comments and lets stop it here because everyone has their own views 🙂
Nice theme Amit.
Amit Bhawani says
Thanks for the comment Harshad 🙂
Yeh I agree with your sandbox theory.I have never believed in sandbox and I have never seen any of my new sites being “sandboxed” as they call it.The only reason people think it exists is that they copy content from other sites and sit and wait for traffic and thik its sandboxed and never realising that google wont send you any visitors unless you have unique content.
Thanks for such a nice article though will help noobies.
I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
and I want to get the most bang for my buck.
Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:
This is where you’re going to find the “latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers” from
Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.
Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.
You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I’ve seen discounts
there as low as 75% off sticker price.

heated discussions but alexa rank may do things in serps but that’s an observation only…
Google can count hits from it’s own gogole toolbar too and rank accn. to traffic
wow so hot discossion but thanks to u n rakesh also for so good details.m trying to built a wap site.perhaps this thing will help me
“Alexa Rank of 91,405 within 48 hours of this launch ” its amazing yaar and that too in very few time .. can a new site or blog updated regularly with fresh content get this alexa rank with alexa widget on its sidebar … a bit new for me. i have reached alexa till 1.5 lac but it took few months ..
“””Add your latest posts link in the top 3 social bookmarking sites(find them from your own research 😉 ) and try to maintain as much unique stuff you can, as this helps your website gain good rankings.
This small stuff is just enough for you to get natural traffic from the search engines “””
I totally agree with this point amit… 🙂
I digg my last post. It came in google 1st page for my optimized keyword. After 24 hrs i cant view my post in google 1st page.. What is the cause???
This thing happens to me for high competitive keywords.
Is there any way to keep my digg forever in google 1st page??

At those time when you started your blog there was competition but not that much. But now it takes your nerves to to get into Alexa rank less than 1 lac rupees.
Praveen Kumar says
thanks bro this helps me a lot to create my blog site
Amrik Virdi says
Thanks for the brilliant article.
Amit..! You have written an interesting article. Its really tricky. The agree with you for the point you have mentioned to find your own post by your own search. I had a blog called fameblog.net, now its a pat. I made a post regarding link building and tried to find the my blog post by google search. Surprisingly when I didi it couple of time (after some regular intervals) I noticed that google was kind enough to help me to find my article with more ease than earlier.
Now I am planning for a new blog. Of course you are a true inspiration.
How can you have alexa 9,99,000 with 15 visitors. one of my blog gets 40k page views but not able to crack this alexa rank?
