Website Traffic- The Worst Mistake You Can Make

Aug 28, 2008
In the past a person would have found it hard to get website traffic. Today that does not have to be the case. However, there is one mistake many people make when it comes to getting traffic to their website and we are going to talk about that in this article.

The Internet has become so large that few of us really understand the magnitude of it. The problem that many people make when it comes to getting website traffic is miscalculating how much competition there is and how much traffic it is going to take for them to actually make money.

I see this happen all the time! A person puts together what they think is a good advertising campaign. In reality they are getting just a few hundred visitors a day to their website.

Unless you are in a targeted niche, with little competition, a few hundred website visitors a day is not going to make a big difference in your income. You have to expand your thinking way beyond that and start thinking in terms of thousands of visitors a day.

You know that there are websites on the Internet today that get over a million visitors a year? Did you know that there is websites getting over a million visitors on month! Some of these are your competitors, and this should give you an idea of how much website traffic it is going to take for you to make money online.

This article isn't meant to scare you off, as much as it is to try to get you to develop a larger image in your mind of the work that you need to do to get website traffic. It is possible to develop free or nearly free internet traffic, but as you begin to attempt to hit the larger numbers you will need to look at paying for traffic.

A Google Adwords pay per click campaigns is one way to do that. Paying for services to automate your business such as article submissions is a great way to maximize the time you are spending getting website traffic. Other forms of paid advertising that can work include banner advertising, ezine advertising, directory submissions, and so on.

As you begin to monitor how your business is doing, hopefully this article will make you realize you are going to have to achieve high traffic numbers to be competitive online and to make the income you deserve.
