Learn How To Increase Your Website Traffic

If you are in the making money online business, then you fully understand that the amount of traffic that your website receives is the key to your success. Let us correct that statement, it should be, the amount of highly relevant traffic that your website receives that is interested in the product or service that your site is promoting, is the key to your success.

Today, there are two different ways that you can go about getting internet traffic. You can pay for it by using advertising, or you can get it for free by ranking high in the search engines. Of course, getting it for free is much better for your bottom line, but it also takes a great deal longer to acquire, and you will need to work very hard at it.

When the internet was just starting to become popular, it was very easy to using advertising to send traffic to your site. At that time, it was incredibly cheap and only would run you a couple of cents for each visitor that a company like Google would send to your site. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.

Today, many major advertisers like car manufactures, restaurants, and firms in the medical industry have shifted large portions of their advertising budgets to the World Wide Web. This of course, has pushed up the prices for every other type of company that has to pay who wants to use internet advertising to send potential customers to their sites.

Many of the major companies that are advertising on the internet, do not have to make a return on their investment, but are only trying to improve their brands awareness. Whereas, virtually every small business that is trying to make money online, must create a profitable advertising campaign in order to just stay in business.

All of that being said, there are many small firms that use Pay Per Click (PPC), Pay Per View (PPV), or media buys that are able to do quite nicely using these types of advertising. However, most of the people that operate in this area, have a great deal of experience advertising on the internet, and know exactly what they are doing.

The other principle way you can generate website traffic is by ranking high in the major search engines, like Yahoo, Bing, and Google. In order to accomplish this it will require you to learn two distinctly different forms of search engine optimization (Seo), which are offsite and onsite.

Once again, these are not the easiest concepts in the world to master, and implement in a very short period. However, it can be done if you are willing to work at it, and you are dedicated to perfecting your skills in these areas.

If you thought it was going be easy to generate large amounts of website traffic very quickly, you should now be able to determine, it is not. But, if you want to make money online, it is possible if you are willing to put in the time and effort to make it happen.

  1. Hey David yeah I agree getting traffic to your website is a little tricky, but the good news is it is easier to generate traffic, but you will need to spend a little bit of money within your budget. I went with godaddy.com and so far they have helped me generate traffic to my website which I only had it for 2 weeks. Generating traffic to your site does take time and a little effort, but hopefully it will pay off in the long run.

  2. Getting traffic to your blog or website is not as hard as most people think. There are plenty of ways to get eyeballs on your blogs. You can create other portals like a squidoo lens or hub page. You can social bookmark your website or submit to directories. NEVER count out craigslist and should be a part of every ones traffic strategy along with other classified sites. The most important part is to create a game plan and goals and stick to your plan. Take craigslist for example: if you were to post 10 ads a day for 30 days you have 300 links to your website in front of very targeted traffic.

    This can also be done on usfreeads and other classified sites. Do the same process on 10 different classified sites and you have 3,000 links all back to your site in one month. Repeat for 6 months and you have a total of 18,000 links all pointing back to your site. See how easy that was and that is just using classified ad sites! Now go comment on blog in your niche, post your link in your signature at forums in your niche and walaa you have a lot of people visiting your site. Don’t ever think that traffic is the hard part because once you figure out the traffic now you need an offer that converts.

  3. Great post. It’s so true making money online depends on how much traffic you generate. Traffic is like the online currency it’s so important and I think links are the key to traffic.

    Cheers
