Content Trees – Drive An Avalanche Of Free Visitors

700 x 366

Hi, and welcome to AidanBooth.com!

Just like on the 1st day of every month, today I’ve published a new blog post about a strategy that Steve and I use to get amazing results in our business.

This month is a continuation of the SEO theme we discussed last month, but the strategy I’ve got for you today is different… it’s about how you can use a simple Content Marketing hack to win over Google, and drive an avalanche of free traffic to your website.

Today’s content is a detailed video (below) and a Content Tree infographic (below the video) about the strategy, these two things should give you enough information to be able to use the strategy and start seeing more organic traffic coming to your website!

    I love the infographic Aidan, really helps cement how this all works. How did you make this? I’m watching the video now :)

  2. SheeDee says:

    That infographic is inspiring! Thanks so much. Off to work I go…

  3. Wim says:

    Hi Aidian,

    Great content, great tips, thank you so much. Wished I could automate the whole process ?

  4. Jacobus Lavooij says:

    Hi Aidan, great video and I had the realization you can do the same with YouTube videos (writing the article in the description box and linking to other videos and content on your website). I think you basically told us how to create a very strong YouTube channel by using the content tree strategy! :-) Thanks!

  5. Ann Valla says:

    Love the Content Tree. I like how you wrote the entire overview. It’s the puzzle piece i needed to start my blog right the first time. Thank you so much Aidan. Your blog is full of awesome value, thank you for sharing all the tips and hacks.

  6. Neil says:

    Hi Aidan,

    No time for the infographics yet. Too busy going through the new module sessions and doing my homework for your amazing, awesome coach, Kevin ! :-)

    Cheers,
    Neil.

  7. Mickey Bates says:

    Great content Aidan! I might also add that if you write 12 of these super articles a year, (one per month) at the end of 12 months you have an book to publish on Amazon and/or an eBook to sell.

  8. Todd Lloyd says:

    Hi Aidan,
    I really appreciate the way you simplify so many topics including SEO and a Content Tree.
    I’d never heard of it before reading this, but it will my big plan for Q4 Traffic Push and beyond.

    Thank you,
    Todd

    P.S. I would love to see an update though that shared the tools you guys use to automate this. From being in your many courses, I know you have systems and checklists, and work flow plans of how to do this big.

    • Aidan says:

      Hey Todd, a few people are asking me about automation so I’ll work on a post about that. In reality though, in our business it’s more about putting systems in place that our team can use to do the work, not actual automation as such.

  9. Jeremy says:

    Another brilliant concept Aidan, as always!

  10. Erica says:

    Great idea Aidan, very applicable to what I’m doing right now too. Also, thank you for putting together the Ultra program, I’m still working through it and am getting better results every week it seems. Finally getting results online after years of trying is amazing, my whole family is excited about this now, so thank you, and thanks to Steve too.

  11. Robert says:

    I would like to know, please, if there is any specific location on a website where the super article should be published. If, for example I already have a primary website that sells widgets at http://www.mywidgetsite dot com, and that site already has a blog installed in a separate directory at http://www.mywidgetsite dot com/news, would it deliver the maximum SEO benefit if I published the super article as a WordPress Page at http://www.mywidgetsite dot com/news/how-to-buy-widgets-online/ ?

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Robert, it can go anywhere really. The most logical place however is at the top of a category, but it certainly doesn’t need to. It can just be a regular post… there’s nothing wrong with this at all. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other Q’s :)

  12. Aurin says:

    Hi,

    very nice infographic, I must 100 % again confirmed that picture say as 1000 words. Great concept and idea, now I really know better how to build my next website, thanks!

  13. James says:

    Great Video. Thanks. How do you manage to incorporate all this in an ecomerce site.

  14. Murray Dobbs says:

    Hello Aidan.

    As always, great information and guidance.

    You guys are the epitome of “under promise and over deliver”.

    You just keep on giving and giving.

    I am so fortunate to be a part of your group.

    Thank you so much.

    Murray

    P.S. Just curious, what part of the planet are you on today?

    • Aidan says:

      Hey Murray, thanks for your comment, and thank YOU for being in our circle and reading our content. I’m back in Argentina now… for another 8 days, then heading to London!

  15. Max says:

    Hello, Aidan. Thanks for your post and video. Very informative!
    Could you recommend me the place, where I can hire good copywriters for creating Tree of Content. Or if you need to do something great – do it yourself? :)
    Thanks!

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Max, you don’t really need a copywriter, you need a content writer. In my experience, the best place to find these is upwork.com and freelancer.com

  16. Kay says:

    Hi Aidan
    This is great. If working on this without outside help, Would you build the tree piece by piece and publish as you go, or design and write the whole thing before you publish?

    • Aidan says:

      Definitely build it piece by piece, that’s how they’re meant to be built, EVEN if you have a team working with you. I’d never build it all on day 1.

  17. Les Edwards says:

    Hi Aidan,

    Building the super article framework with all the links going out to other informed articles/web pages is great way of doing niche research.

  18. Ron says:

    Hi Aidan
    do you build any links to the super article or do you just let Google find the contant naturally?

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Ron, ideally, yes, you would build a few links. Don’t get too carried away though, just 2-3 good links would be fine. YouTube is a great place to start for those.

  19. Jackee Schwartz says:

    Aidan, I’m still not sure how to put this on the niche site. Will you be doing a video showing us how to do that? Also, is there some tool that will do a word count for you so you know when you’ve reached the 3,000 word point?

    • Aidan says:

      If you’re using WordPress, you just need to create a post (Google search “how to create a post in WordPress”), you’ll find lots of demo videos etc. I use Word Count inside Microsoft word to tell me how many words I’m at..

  20. Mark says:

    Hello there Aidan.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful video on Using Content Trees.

    In 2012, I actually made an article that fits to your description, it had several links to pages and blogs within my website. It also included wikipedia, wikihow and youtube links. It really helped a lot in the rankings. Now, I’m trying to do some linking from my site to subdomains of my main site. Hopefully this will work again knowing that I just have to pay 1 great site with more super content trees making domain super charged with subdomains offering super content trees as well.

    God bless you Aidan. Thanks for your generosity. I really appreciate you and Steve as well as your team.

  21. Nina says:

    Hi Aidan,
    I have a few questions. When I branch out, does this new article that I create contain what I have from my super article? If yes, having duplicate content is OK?
    At what pace do I create these new branches?
    After all my branches are created, do I leave the main article live? Thank you so much for your help!

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Nina, your new articles (that you branch out to) will compliment the Super Article, but never be the same as it… the branch out articles are meant to provide additional information about specific things that aren’t covered in the Super Article.

  22. Anna says:

    Does Google ever frown upon changing your links once your site / page is published? In other words, if you post the super article linking out to authoritative websites (such as Wiki) and then you change that link to link to an inner page on your site, is Google ok with changing these links like that?

  23. Tom says:

    Hi Aidan,
    Thanks for the great post, I just finished the 3000+ super article and have 2 questions:
    1. do you think it’s better to use this on a brand new site, focused on a theme or big topic (like health) or used on an exisiting website but that has different topics covered.

    2. Is it better to link to many other sites or focus on very few (for example only wikipedia and webmd if health).

    Thanks again!

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Tom, for #1, I think either is fine… I think it’s great for both. For #2, linking to many quality sites is fine, I’d try not to link to crappy ones though.

  24. Ralph Goodwin says:

    Extremely helpful strategy for content marketing! The given example of learning Spanish online was complete and logically laid out.

    I will be implementing this on all my blogs/sites being a great fan of SEO and free traffic in general.

    Thanks much!

  25. Brian says:

    How many words do you recommend that each of the “Branch” articles should be?

  26. Bill York says:

    That is a great video and info-graphic on generating organic traffic from super articles with content trees. I liked the way you researched the keywords in the keyword planner and built them into your outline. Do you do similar research for each of the branches on the main tree? In the example you selected a keyword with medium competition, but there was one with low competition down lower on the list and higher volume (study spanish @ 6:00). How come you selected the one you did over the others? I know we are not supposed to over-optimize for keywords. How frequently should the main keyword be used and in what locations like meta description, , , etc.? What qualifies as over-optimization? I definitely need to generate a super article for my e-commerce site and it would help for my other sites too. Thank you! Keep up the good work :)

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Bill, for the branches, yes, you would want to do some research, as these can be traffic drivers as well. Don’t worry too much about keyword usage/word count.. as a general rule though, I’d try to keep it to below 1%.

  27. Brian says:

    I have a site that has (5) different tabs for (5) different subjects but has the same overall theme. For example, a loan website (1) home loan; (2) auto loan; (3) personal loan; (4) business loan; (5) student loan. The overall theme is “Loans” yet each are distinctly different from the other. Would I write a 3,000 word article and touch on the key points for each of the (5) loans…roughly 600 words for each loan type or would I start off with a 3,000 word article on a home loan only, then next a 3,000 word article on an auto loan only, etc.?

    • Aidan says:

      I’d do a 3000 word article on EACH loan, make that the ‘anchor’ for each section (kind of like a homepage for each section of your site). I think that’ll work really well.

  28. Ruth H says:

    Hi Aidan,
    Thank you for the video I’m going to implement it! I have a shopify store I started with 100k factory and a wordpress blog site/store/blog.
    I had a quick question: Is the super article we create written as a new “Post” or new “Page”?
    Are the branches for this content tree new “Pages” as well?
    Thanks

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Ruth, whether it’s a page or a post really doesn’t matter… it just depends on what structure you use. If I were to do it on this website, it’d be a post, as that’s what I use for content. I use ‘Pages’ for things like the About Page, etc… all the content (on this site) is posts.

  29. Brian says:

    Hello Aidan, please refer to our last Q & A on Aug. 30, 2017…obviously I’m a bit slow with getting this completed. I have somebody helping me with my site for the past couple of years and this person seems to think that I should have one page that contains all of the 3,000+ word articles..ie. the 3,000 word Auto Loan article, the 3,000 word Home Loan article, the 3,000 word Student Loan article should all be together on 1 separate “Super Article” page.

    I think that you want the 3,000 word Auto Loan article on the Main Auto Loan page/Landing page, the 3,000 word Home Loan article on the Main Home Loan page/Landing page, and so on.

    Am I correct?

    Also, where would you recommend that I put the “Branch Articles”? Would I have 1 page in my website that contains all of these articles OR for example, would the Home Loan “Branch Articles” be placed on the Main Home Loan page/Landing page along with the 3,000 word Home Loan article OR should it be placed somewhere else?

    Thank you for your answers.

    • Aidan says:

      Hi Brian, there’s not really one ‘RIGHT’ way to do this.. you can do one Super Article of 3000 words, and brand articles of 500 or so.. or your super article could be much longer.. it’s really up to you, either approach will work just fine.

      • Brian says:

        I understand that part, but what I want to make sure about is that the MAIN Loan Website which offers different types of loans, for example, that the 3,000+ word Auto Loan article is on the Main Auto Loan page/landing page; The 3,000+ word Home Loan article is on the Main Home Loan page/landing page, and so on…

        Compared to another idea of having each of the 3,000+ word articles for each type of loan, all together on just one page in the website…(1) page that contains all of the 3,000+ word articles..ie. the 3,000+ word Auto Loan article, the 3,000+ word Home Loan article, the 3,000+ word Student Loan article should all be together on 1 separate “Super Article” page. I think this is incorrect based upon what you have discussed.

        Also, where would you recommend that I put the “Branch Articles”? Would I have 1 page in my website that contains all of these articles OR for example, would the Home Loan “Branch Articles” be placed on the Main Home Loan page/Landing page along with the 3,000 word Home Loan article OR should it be placed somewhere else?

        Thank you for your answers.

        • Aidan says:

          Hi Brian, you should set the 3000 word articles out on different pages. Each can have different branches, which would also be set up as different posts..

          So you might have:

          MAIN ARTICLE #1
          – branch post #1
          – branch post #2
          – branch post #3
          – etc

          MAIN ARTICLE #2
          – branch post #1
          – branch post #2
          – branch post #3
          – etc

          Hope this clears it up!

          • Brian says:

            I believe so. The branch post #1 for example, will be a small article of 300+ words and located on a completely separate page or rather on its own unique page within this main website…correct?

          • Aidan says:

            Correct!

    Thank you very, very much for your patience and answering my questions. I have purchased your programs: Trinity Code; Crowd Force Pro; 100K Factory and 100K Factory Ultra Edition.
