Website Traffic



Generating Website Traffic is one of the biggest challenges for an Internet entrepreneur. Getting a sufficient amount of traffic (or customers) who will then purchase your products, generate sales and make you money can be difficult.

When you launch a new website or blog, it can take quite a while to build traffic, particularly if you do not already have a successful online business you can use to drive customers to your new website. Fortunately, there are several ways you can accelerate the process of getting visitors to your site.

Proper search engine optimization should be the cornerstone of your traffic building efforts, because it will help you generate free, long-term traffic that will sustain your business for many years to come. It is important to properly research keywords and strategically use them in your site's content.

A good way to do this is to utilize the keyword research tools available online. Don't forget to use keywords in your page titles, image tags, and internal links, as this will help your site feature more prominently in search engine listings.

Obtaining inbound links from other websites and blogs is another good strategy for building website traffic. One way to do this is to simply ask other website owners to provide a link to your site; however, if your site is new, some webmasters may be hesitant to do this unless you provide something of value in return. You can offer to link back to that person's site, or even pay the website owner for the link.

Comment on related blogs. Another way to generate inbound links is to leave relevant, insightful comments on other people's blogs. When you leave a blog comment, you will enter your name, your email address, and the address of your website. When your comment appears on the blog, it will include a link back to your site. The more links you have pointing to your website, the higher your site will appear in search engine rankings.

A third effective way to generate website traffic is to participate in discussion forums. Most discussion boards will allow you to place a link to your site in your signature, so every time you post to the forum, you gain exposure for your site. Keep in mind that people will be more likely to click on your link if you genuinely participate in the forum's discussions. Keep your posts relevant and meaningful, and make an effort to add value to the discussion. Whatever you do, don't actively promote your site in your forum posts, as this is viewed negatively by discussion board participants and moderators.

Finally, a very quick way to build a website traffic is to participate in pay per click marketing. You can write short advertisements that will appear alongside the first page of results in Google and other search engines. While this can effectively and quickly bring you website traffic, it is important to use a strategy with caution. You will be required to pay a fee every time a search engine user clicks on your ad and visitors site, regardless of whether the visitor makes a purchase.

If you plan to use the pay per click marketing strategy, take it slow at the beginning. You can very quickly spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on customers who click on your link but don't buy anything!

With pay per click programs like Google Adsense, you can set daily spend limits. Make sure you do!
