3 steps for any car rental to be successful (and not just)
Gain personal experience. If you book a trip to the car and share your experience in a blog that contains only your personal experience, it will enhance the credibility of advertisers.
Post. Tell us about your experience in detail and include a screenshot of how to use the service you advertised correctly.
Search promotion. Let the search engine love your article. Enter the top 10 search results to respond to keyword queries, such as “car rental in [city name]”. Yes, it’s true, and search traffic – whether it’s high-frequency keywords or low-frequency keywords – will benefit you. A website or blog will never generate good revenue from internal traffic from other parts of the same site. Target customers are the only people who bring real income.
The golden rule of the high specification article – take a car discount for example
Longread. More than 8,000 words of articles generate the greatest credibility among readers. There are 30,000 words long read, people also read. Research shows that people are not afraid to read long articles. In other words, the more useful information a user finds in an article, the more he trusts the author, so it is recommended where to order the car. Trust is the engine of sales. So don’t skimp on information. At the same time, you will collect the largest semantics.
Objectivity. Share your experience of looking for cars: international agents, local companies’ websites and groups on social networking sites. It should be clear to the reader that you have studied the market for them and should see why it is the best choice to make a reservation from this advertiser. Write down the strengths and weaknesses of each search method.
Be honest. No one is perfect. Try to touch on the shortcomings of the offer. For example, unlike direct and rental companies, there are no discounts, or unlike international brokers, without franchise insurance. By doing so, the reader will believe in your objectivity. Don’t try to pretend to be a booking site and install the reservation widget on the page that contains the article. Readers understand that you are a blog, not a travel agent, and that he will not buy your services. He just wants advice. The referral link will be the best affiliate tool for your blog. Most readers don’t know about affiliate links, or they don’t. Click on the link to a dedicated car rental website that has been heated by your article and ready to buy.
Different types of content. Make a screenshot of video, which contains the reservation program, on the advertiser’s website. Or photograph how you received a car rental video. You can make a little movie about driving.
Add a map of the best car travel routes. Don’t forget to show the car and your personal photo, or the car in the background of a tourist attraction.
Add routes to trusted sites, such as wikipedia or shops, restaurants, hotels and public places along the route.
Multimedia content generates profit in three areas:
Video can be placed separately on social networking sites, where traffic is collected from traffic to blogs. Don’t immediately delete links to YouTube or TripAdvisor’s BBS. Use your video as the portal to your blog.
Video usually takes readers and provides more visual information. People think in images, not in words. The more pictures you give, the more enjoyable the reader will be to read your posts.
All of this drives behavior and makes the search engine love your site.
Comment on this article. The reader’s opinion suggests that at least one has been heard. Show your positive experience that the information is reliable. You remember the obnoxious note from Booking.com: “the Spanish user booked the room from this hotel five minutes ago?” Useful! For blogs, comments on posts are exactly the same as those notifications.
The article group. An article is not enough. Share car routes to scenic spots or help readers understand the complexities of car insurance and all the risks involved.
Search engines should understand that this is not a random article, but a part of your site. If you’re concerned about this topic, you should get the reader’s attention and good location in the search results. In addition, the topic semantics of these articles will attract more targeted audiences to you.
As MyRentacar’s experience shows, through such a set of articles, the non-commercial queries about bus routes and attractions are first pulled and then connected to the commercial queries of major commodities. The main idea is to correctly identify the links between major articles and secondary articles. This can be done by relinking (every secondary article, there should be some link to the main article) and through nesting, the article level.
Menu items and relinks. Of course, people just want to place the most important part of the blog and the best articles on the menu. Car rental, in general, does not apply here. However, through the menu of your site, search engines and readers know your site’s structure and theme. Add articles about car rentals to your website menu for at least six months until you get a good place in the search results.
Add links to car rental articles in all previous posts on rental areas or topics. Make this material part of your site, not an advertising headline, and you’ll be ashamed of it and want to hide it in the deeper layers of your site.
Seeding. Suppose you wrote a huge article and spent a lot of time preparing it, but no one noticed it. Yes, no one will see it until you show it.
Create a link to your rental car on a third-party website:
Social networking sites. Put the posts in the task group, in the group, leave your article links, and leave messages to others.
Video hosting. Place your video and link to the article in these video descriptions. Place a link on video itself and serve as a hyperlink to the text.
Consumer review site. They’re just waiting for your feedback. Tell you how to rent a car and travel. Rewrite individual chapters of your own articles and publish them. In the body of the feedback, add an article link to your signature and profile.
BBS. The host can sometimes be heavy, but on some BBS, you can still pass.
FAQ website. Search for appropriate questions and use links to articles to provide answers.
This includes the usual SEO mechanism. You need to link to your car rental article. There are at least five links.
Car rentals earn an average of $2, 000 to $6, 000 a year. This will require your following:
Hire a car.
Assign 3-5 days of preparation.
Spend four days sowing.
Wait 4 to 7 months until the search engine evaluates your material. During this time, you need to continue to create links to articles.
