It's All About The Traffic Stupid!

Mar 31, 2008
One thing that constantly bugs me about many of the products that get released is that they don't tell you how to bring traffic to your site. You get a large e-book that tells you how to build an amazing site but not one chapter on traffic generation

When I was starting out I spent lots of money on site building tools and keyword tools and nothing on learning how to generate traffic. I now know how stupid that was. The tools might have been the best in the world but without traffic the end results were worthless.

You can have the best looking site in the world, with the perfect keywords but if you don't know how to firstly attract the search engine spiders and then real human visitors then the site is going to have no value. Try selling a website and the first thing you will be asked is "What is the Income & what's the traffic" The income is not particularly important. If I am buying a site I actually want the income to be as low as possible as it will be cheaper for me. Given a choice of a site with an income of $100 a month and 1000 visitors or a site with $10 per month and 2000 Visitors I'll always go for the visitors.

Take time to develop your own traffic delivery system and you'll have one less thing to worry about. Take time to find out what works and what doesn't. I created a video for my members yesterday about how to get a site indexed and start generating traffic and I found something that got a new site into Google in less than 18 hours.

This was something I hadn't even considered using before. Saying I was impressed was would be a bit of an understatement. But imagine my shock when I tried it on a new site this morning and had reference to my site showing up in Google 3 hours later.

It's not surprising that the method I used isn't listed in any manuals or e-books. Search engines constantly change the weighting they gives sites. it wasn't long ago that Squidoo was the most important place to have a link to your site, that's not the case anymore.

I constantly monitor Google to see which sites are ranking well. I find an Internet marketing product and search for it in Google's index. I'll then take note of what sites are showing links and test them for myself. The reason I choose Internet marketing niches is that Internet marketers are usually at the forefront of any developments in ranking strategies.

By constantly monitoring whats working and what isn't you'll soon build up a list of good sites. When it comes to launch a site use these sites to generate traffic and to get your site ranking high for your chosen keywords.
