5 Scientifically-Proven Ways to Increase Web Site Traffic

Aug 17, 2007
The more you understand about any subject, the more interesting it becomes. As you read this article you'll find that the subject of web site traffic is certainly no exception.

Offer additional value on your website for affiliates and partners. You can place links to their sites and products, for example, and ask them to do the same for you. In addition, you can advertise affiliate or partner books or videos if these products relate to your industry, and are not in competition with your own product or service line.

Make your content USEFUL. Think about your target audience and what they may be coming to your site to see, learn or buy. THEN DELIVER THAT! Search engines and keywords can bring people to your site, but if your content is not useful or doesn't live up to your sales pitch, your prospective customer may leave and never come back. Your web site traffic will faint in stead of growing.

Before you submit your website to search engines and directories, which is an absolute must to get more web site traffic, be sure you are ready. Don't submit websites that are incomplete. Have a plan for how and when you will contact these search engines and include information about your website, a description, keywords and any other information that may be pertinent, including the name and contact information for the business owner. Remember that submission to search engines companies does not guarantee that your ranking will be high. It only guarantees that they will look at your site, but it may take a while because there are literally thousands of new websites springing up every day.

If you find yourself confused by what you've read to this point, don't despair. Everything on increasing your web site traffic should be crystal clear by the time you finish.

When starting a website, give serious thought to domain names and web hosting services because these are the underpinnings for your website. First and foremost, when it comes to domain names, stay away from the silly, stupid, ridiculous or clever. Keep your domain name simple and make it something your customers can remember if they lose the link to your business website. A professional domain name that uses your primary company name or associated words is likely to get more attention and be considered as a stable business by your prospective customers.

When you design or revamp your website, do not use frames or FLASH programming unless your company is very large and your website is very complex with lots of opportunity for other keyboard use. Many search engines do not read content that is inside a frame so you can have many great keyword references in your content and still miss that all-important search engine ranking which will eventually increase your web site traffic. You might have trouble achieving a good ranking on a search engine that does read content in frames because the frames increase the page file size and total words (even though a frame is NOT a word) and thereby dilute the keyword density.

So now you know a little bit about web site traffic. Even if you don't know everything, you've done something worthwhile: you've expanded your knowledge.
