How To Get Traffic To Your Web Site
No matter what niche you are in, if you are online, you are constantly thinking about how to attract traffic to your website. But I’m sure that you’ve recently noticed, that getting traffic to websites is no easy feat. It’s not a quick sprint – but rather it’s a slow and steady marathon. It’s also nothing that you need to spend hundreds or thousands of your hard earned dollars on either. It’s not rocket science! It’s simple, I’ve done it for years, and this is what you need to do…
Traffic To Website Strategy 1 – Build A WordPress Blog
There are so many statistics proving that Google loves blogs. Blogs, especially WordPress blogs are built on a structure that makes it easy for search engine spiders to crawl. Which means they can find and rank your content quickly and easily.
Traffic To Website Strategy 2 – Write About Stuff People Search For
If you write articles on topics, strategies, or solutions that people search for on the web, you will get traffic. It’s a basic supply and demand theory. If you supply the information which is in demand – you will get the traffic to your website.
Traffic To Website Strategy 3 – Select The Right Keywords
Getting traffic to your website is sooooo much easier when you select keyword phrases that REAL people would use to find information on your topic. Get those right – and the traffic wouldn’t stop no matter what you do. I like the free keyword tool over at Wordtracker to conduct main and long-tail keyword research.
Traffic To Website Strategy 4 – Write Consistently
I pay close attention to my traffic statistics and my traffic steadily increases every time I publish. I can’t say it any simpler than that. Publish more and you’ll see more traffic. Especially if your site is on Google’s radar.
Traffic To Website Strategy 5 – Build Your Buzz
Beginners online have it so much easier than us oldies but goodies! How? Because you can use the growth of social media sites to create a “buzz” or a strategic conversation around your biz. All for free! The key is to not try and do everything and overwhelm yourself. Strategically pick a few social sites that resonate with you and build your buzz at those places.
Traffic To Website Strategy 6 – Build Backlinks
Creating a one-way link back to your site from another relevant site is good for two things. One – it builds your importance and relevance to the search engines like Google. Two – it funnels traffic to your site. When you build backlinks from sites that are relevant and get traffic (such as a high-trafficked article directory), some of that traffic will start visiting you. So think of it in this way. If you establish one backlink from a site that sends you 100 visitors a day, and you establish just 9 more links like that, you will receive over a 1000 new visitors and potential clients/customers to your site – a day. For free! Just by establishing a one-way link a.k.a. backlink.
Traffic To Website Strategy 7 – Rinse And Repeat!
Complete and repeat steps one through six over and over and watch your results double and triple over time.
