1. Google Search
Google is the worlds largest search engine, and because of this they have to be experts at directing your attention effectively. One of the best ways to generate traffic is by searching relevant keywords.

Click through the alternate searches to see which results yield the smallest returned searches. The smaller less targeted keywords are the things you can be ranking for.
Use keywords that return between 1000-6000 Google results and write the best blog content on those key words. Over time your blog will begin to rank higher while generating more inbound leads.
