If you are just starting out or maybe been online for a while you would have experienced the one major factor that affects most websites out their, and that is the lack of traffic and with no traffic to site it means that nobody gets to see your amazing products or services that you offer which means no money which in turn brings on the doubt.
The doubt of whether you’re doing the right thing, is it right for you or maybe you have people whispering in your ear about following the norm and getting a job and although they mean well is it what you want. Because if your goal is to be in control of your destiny then you should not let anybody talk you into giving up your dream, if you want to be an entrepreneur then welcome to the reality and it is a reality littered with trial and error which in turn has generated a huge knowledge bank for those willing to learn
Learning is the key, learning and understanding what your website needs and requires to be successful for you is the key to driving more traffic to your site and here are a few traffic ideas and tips that I have used in the past to drive traffic to my sites.
There are numerous ways to get guaranteed website traffic, but how much you will get is never guaranteed and may vary from day to day, depending on the method you use, the market, competition, or many other factors. Lets look at just a few of the many ways to get more visitors to your site.
First of all, making sure your site is properly “SEOed” is a first, fundamental step. Even if you are using other non-SEO methods to drive traffic to your site, this is something that will help you achieve results as well. When it comes to SEO, you need to optimize your keywords and keyword phrases on your site, as well as make sure you are getting high-quality backlinks. You can learn how to do this for yourself, employ someone to do it for you, or invest in some software systems that can help you with this important aspect.
In reality, you will need to understand the power of keywords for whatever type of guaranteed website traffic method you use. It’s important to understand what are the best keywords for your website, as well as how to use them in the various strategies. Finding keywords is very easy. You can do it for free with the Google Adwords Keyword Tool, or any of the other free sites.
Article marketing is a great way to get more targeted visitors to your site. You can write articles that are informative, helpful, and related to the content of your site which allows you to create exposure for your site. Again, keywords play an important role. If you are just starting out, pick keywords that are less competitive and more targeted.
For example, if your site is about golf clubs, you can target a keyword of a specific type of golf club, or a course about how to use a specific kind of club. The key is to search for words that have lower competition, and these will also be the words that have fewer searches.
Write a 450 -500 word article with that keyword in the title, also incorporate the keywords in the body of the article, in one first sentence of one of the body’s paragraphs, and in the last sentence of the article. Then, submit your article to Ezine Articles first.
You will submit your article to other sites as well, but you need to change it enough so that the search engines recognize it as a different article. So, before submitting it to any of the other sites (GoAricles, Amazines, ArticleSnatch, or any of the others out there), change the title of the article (while still using your keyword), and the first sentence of each of the paragraphs of your article. Then, go through the article and change a word or two here and there.
There are many services and article submitters that can help you change your articles correctly and submit them to the thousands of directories. This builds backlinks which is one of the key aspects of guaranteed website traffic.
So remember getting traffic to your site is all about knowing who you want to visit and what your site needs.
