Viral traffic may seem like a dream – Philip makes your dream come true

Viral traffic is the holy grail of contemporary marketing. Everybody wants it. And yet, most courses and ebooks teach you only one example. One example that the author discovered by accident, and wasn't able to repeat.

In this course, you learn the principles of Viral marketing. You'll understand what to do, and how to do it.

What you'll learn:

  • The golden rule of Viral Marketing and social engagement - (You'll find it in Lecture 25)
  • The FIVE types of content that get shared the most - Without this list, you're wasting your time!
  • The FIVE subjects that get shared the most - You can choose other subjects, but you'll have to work a lot harder!
  • The unique angle to stand out - Even when you target the Internet Marketing niche;
  • How to use this angle to create unique viral posts - Philip shows you exactly what his posts look like, and how to create them;
  • The FIVE criteria to create posts with maximum virality - And Philip shows you working examples;
  • A top secret way to engage your customers - Hidden in plain sight, but nobody is using it! (Lecture 11)

Many internet marketers and website owners don't do viral marketing. Common complaints are:

“My niche is boring, there are no options for viral posts"

“I'm not good at creating funny videos"

“I don't know how to edit images".

Don't worry about that. You can profit from viral traffic as well.

Philip will show you:

  • What to do when you're in a boring “non-viral" niche;
  • What to do when you're not good at video creation;
  • Where to find (legal!) images you can use;
  • How to edit images so your visitors will love them;
  • How to set up your website so even bookkeepers and lawyers will share your content.

Viral traffic is the holy grail, and your website is the table the holy grail rests on.

Yes, your Wordpress website is a very important platform, where you can share the content that will go viral.

That means it's very important that the platform is stable. Setting up Wordpress the right way is crucial.

Are you making these mistakes on your Wordpress website?

  • Using the default Wordpress theme…
  • Installing a couple of plugins, and think your done with it…
  • Quickly find some images and put them in the media folder…
  • Post a few articles and then lose interest because there's no traffic..

In this course Philip will teach you how to setup your Wordpress properly, for SEO, AND to make your articles and posts go viral, getting more and more traffic on autopilot.

This is a one-time job, and will make your traffic multiply with each new posts on your website.

  • Everything you need to make Google love your pages,
  • How to make your pages stand out in the Google search results,
  • How to check that Google is indexing your site,
  • How to control which pages are indexed by Google,
  • How to optimize website speed (an important factor for SEO!),
  • How to easily add additional links to long pages to make it easy to read for your customers….

And Google LOVES it.

And so much more…

Nearly every lecture Includes examples and walk-throughs of all the important steps.

  • Why website speed is important for SEO,

Section 1: About this course

This is my welcome to you. I will share with you what the goal of this course is and how you should go through it.

Section 2: How to find a viral Niche
2 pages

Finding a unique angle to your niche can be important, but that's not all. Often some niches tend to go viral easier than others and that can help you with your traffic generation efforts.

You can work with your existing niche topic, but if you don't have one this short lecture is for you.


In this video, you will learn how to decide what kind of domain name to choose. There are different options and I talk about all of them one by one.


In the last video I showed you how to find a domain name and in this video i walk you through all the places WHERE you can buy those kind of domains.

3 questions

Just a quick recap of the main things you need to keep in mind when deciding which niche to dive into.

Section 3: Get Maximum SEO and Viral Traffic, by Setting Up Wordpress Correctly

Wordpress SEO can be overwhelming when you're new to this CMS or to search engine optimization at all.

In this video you will learn about the basic SEO settings you can do on your site without any fancy plugins.

Things like pretty permalinks or the first adjustments to keep your page load time fast.


This is the part where I show you how to set up Titles and Metas for each page. These are the test snippets you can see in your browser tabs or displayed in the search results.

There's more than just keyword stuffing if you'd like to do this right.


Learn how to set up better Permalinks, breadcrumbs and optimize your RSS feed in Yoast Wordpress SEO.

On page SEO is a big part of your traffic generation so don't skip this step although it might seem a little boring.


Single page or post optimization in Yoast can be a little counter-intuitive. This video gives you a quick overview how to set up everything on a single post level.

I will walk you through a post optimization using Yoast Wordpress SEO.


You can have multiple XML files per website and I show you an example how to submit these to Google Webmaster Tools.


Some people think adding tens or even hundreds of tags to a Wordpress website is a great move. It's not.

This video shows you how I recommend to use Wordpress categories or tags to get the most SEO benefit out of them and at the same time be very visitor friendly.

For me this is a very underestimated topic in the world of on page SEO and you should not miss this lecture.


Wordpress comments are indexable in Google so you should pay attention to them while building up your blog or website.

Here's why I love comments and how you should use them.

I'm not a big fan of Disqus. If you prefer to use it instead of Wordpress comments check http://smepals.com/forums/seo/google-starting-index-disqus-comments and this older article https://www.seroundtable.com/disqus-seo-14093.html for more information.


You spent hours to optimize your website for social sharing. Don't miss out on this very important yet mostly forgotten part.

It could be your edge over the competition!


Image optimization can be one of the, if not THE most important parts of your on-page SEO strategy.

Learn how to reduce file sizes, resize images and more in this video. Don't forget about ALT text and descriptions though.

7 pages

I'm a little obsessed with my website load time and you should be too.

Website speed optimization is very important for your on-page optimization and future Google rankings.

A slow website also could hurt your conversions a lot - no matter if we're talking about opt-ins or sales.


This video shows you why you should use a 404 page or why it's better to use a 301 redirect instead.


Broken links also break the user experience on any given site. That's why you should fix them asap.

Second they can leak "link power" that'S why I prefer to redirect them to my homepage or other pages one by one.

I also show you a working 404 page you could replicate if you prefer to do so.


This is an example homepage from one of my niche sites. I walk you through it and explain all important details.

What kind of header to use, which kind of contents, inbound and outbound links and so on.


Sometimes single posts or pages can be different from the homepage. That's why I added this video with a second example.

I walk you through one of my blog posts and explain how it is structured for most on-page SEO benefits.


In the single page optimization example, I recommend to use clickable TOC's. In this lecture I teach you two different ways to create one.

Either use a plugin or do it by hand - decide yourself.

5 questions

Take a few minutes to go through the things you learned again. It will help you to stay on course and reach your goals faster.

Section 4: How To Boost Social Engagement and Make Your Posts Go Viral

I cover free and paid themes in this video, however, you can use any theme you like and still have a fantastic site.

There are some points to keep in mind while choosing a quality theme, that's why I decided to summarize them in this short video.


In this lecture you will learn what a domain hack is and why you should get one. I recommend several places to find a hack and also show you my own as a real life example.

1 page

This is a short list of domain hack generators to make your life easier. I also included a link to helpful MOZ article for more information.

5 pages

In this video you will learn how to set up a short URL using bitly and also how to integrate it with your Wordpress installation for maximum brand exposure.


Related posts are very important for internal linking and can also help to lower your bounce rate.

This is the plugin I prefer to use and it's very easy to install and configure on your site.

1 page

If you are a DIVI user like I am, here's a bonus for you. The exact CSS snippet I use on my site to make YARPP look nice and display the related posts in a way I like.

Section 5: How to Make Your Visitors Happily Share Every Single Post on Your Website

Twitter Cards can be very powerful and help you to gain more traffic from the social media giant.

Same goes for the Facebook open graph implementation on your website. This video shows you how to set up both using the free plugin by Yoast


WP Social SEO Pro is one of the most powerful social optimization plugins I know. It allows you to set up different images for each network and all social meta data.

On top of that it can produce rich snippets like review stars, product information or local business opening times.

There is a free version you can use to start with although I prefer the paid plugin.

7 pages

Images need to have certain sizes to look good on various social networks. In this quick guide, I tell you the one size I researched to make my images look fantastic on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ at the same time.


You have to optimize your site for social sharing to at least have the possibility to go viral with one of your articles.

Here are several plugins I recommend and also the different types of social sharing plugins you need to install for maximum exposure.


Sometimes on-page SEO can be about automation. This plugin helps me to share my content on Twitter every few hours and I teach you how to use it.

You can adjust all times and parameters to fit your needs easily.


Visual content is a lot more appealing than simple text. That's why I like to display beautiful pre-populated tweets on my blog to increase my share rate on Twitter.

Here's a video how to take advantage of pre-populated Tweets to connect with influencers in your niche.

Section 6: Course Recap

I want to thank you for going through the course up to this point. As a way to say thanks I give away my ebook including 101 easy ways to get more traffic.

It includes case studies, tutorials and much more. Highly recommended to read after you optimized your website.


After you optimized your site for on-page SEO and social shares you should get the traffic rollin'. Here's my favourite method to get things started across multipe networks to drive the first visitors to your blog.


To have an appealing blog can make it or break it. Spend some time to create nice featured images (in the size I recommend for social images) and you will see results.

It's also helpful to create some pinnable images to grab more traffic from there. Here are some easy to use tools for you!

Instructor Biography

Philip Kleudgen, Webmaster at Restaurant Coverings, Wordpress Freelancer

I work in sales for a big insurance by day and on my blog by night. I also do some freelance Wordpress work for small businesses on the side.

Blogging and Wordpress is part of my day to day activity since about 2012.

Only few years ago I had no clue what this blogging thing is all about and now I'm pretty confident with most things although I'm far from a programmer.

I'm happy to share my knowledge and support anyone new to Wordpress and blogging.

In my spare time, I like to be together with my lovely daughter and wife either camping all across Germany or spending time outside in Rheinland-Pfalz where we live.

Twitter is my favourite place to be, so feel free to contact me there. Maybe I should do a course about Twitter tips one day?

I'm here to help and to connect with all my students. This means I will answer all upcoming questions in my courses as good as I can and, of course, update and add videos where needed.
