How To Drive Traffic To Your Site

Aug 17, 2007
No matter how cool your site, you're not going to generate enough sales to make your business viable unless you can generate traffic.

Everybody who owns a website dreams about getting tons of traffic directed to it. But getting your site noticed out of literally millions of sites can be a pretty tedious task sometimes. Many people think that they need to invest hundreds or thousands through pay per click search engines or SEO programs in order to get any traffic, but it does not have to be like this.

The good news is, there are lots of ways to effectively advertise your site on line and drive tons of qualified traffic to your site, all for free!

There is a simple way to get your site noticed that requires no money at all: content. what really draws a search engines attention is content. The more content you have about a subject on your site, the higher your chances are of getting traffic from a search engine. You must write actual content, not just the keyword over and over again, because this is called keyword spamming, and it has been said that it can actually get you blocked from engines. Another good tip while creating your content pages is to make them single pages, do make them frame based, because some engines have a harder time picking this up.

How many content pages you need depends on what your site is. If you are doing something that is unique you may not need many pages. If you are working in a saturated market, however, you may need dozens, maybe hundreds of articles to get your site to the top of the engines. This may sound like a lot of work, but it is not that bad once you start doing it. Just do a few articles a day, and within a month you will likely have have more than enough content to pull in the traffic you deserve.

Increase your site's exposure by swapping links with other sites. If you want your site to be seen by as many potential customers as possible, try to get it mentioned on other sites they're likely to visit. Look for sites that are related to yours but don't compete with it directly.

A great way to get your site mentioned on other sites is to contact those sites directly and offer to "link swap" with them. (Be sure to look for sites that get a lot of traffic.) Tell them you'll put a link to their site on your site if they'll do the same for you. Not only will this generate a lot of increased exposure for your site, it can also boost your ranking with the search engines.

In conclusion, to maximize your site's exposure, it's best to use a combination of the tactics listed above.Like in real estate, when it comes to marketing, there are three words you need to keep in mind: location, location, location. Your site has to be mentioned often in places where your niche market hangs out if you want your site to be seen by as many potential customers as possible.

If you think you could be doing more to boost your site's traffic numbers (and really, who couldn't?), start putting thes above traffic generation tactics to work for you today then sit back and enjoy all that free traffic coming your way.
