Traffic Generation Tips

August 10th, 2010 · No Comments · Internet Marketing

The most important thing in any web business is traffic – lots and lots of traffic. The other 1% is what you do with that traffic, but if you have to traffic – you can figure out the rest. Once the visitors arrive you can have them join your mailing list, purchase a product or subscribe to your RSS feed. The most crucial aspect of this process is getting the visitors to your site.

How, then do you get traffic to your site?

These are the best and fastest ways to get free visitors coming to your site:

  • Web 2.0
  • Articles Directories
  • Video

And here’s how to use each method…

Web 2.0 Methods

Web 2.0 is the name given to websites that get their content from their users. What this means for you is that you can join into the community and add your own content. The other interesting thing about these sites is that all the search engines (including Google) treat them as “authority sites”. And that’s important to you because it means that Google and the other search engines treat links from these sites as more meaningful than links from other sites. So, if you place links to your own site inside your content, you get a search engine ranking benefit from those links. The direct traffic from the Web 2.0 sites themselves is only part of the benefit. There are many more web 2.0 traffic tactics we don’t have time to get into here, but this will get you started.

Articles Sites

Article marketing really builds on the Web 2.0 concept. Article sites are in essence web 2.0 websites. In typical web 2.0 fashion, article sites rely on user-generated content (i.e. your articles). And because they are also considered authority sites by the search engines you get all the benefits of other web 2.0 sites just by putting your articles on them. And in addition to this, other users can take your article and place it on their own website. And in return for getting to use your content, these other users include links back to your website that gives you further search engine ranking and more free traffic. If you want to generate traffic from articles follow these steps:

  • Figure out what keywords you want to go after
  • Write specifically to target these keywords
  • Hyperlink these keywords to your website – both in the content of the article and in your author’s info section.

Video

Our discussion would not be complete without talking about video. Once again, this is really a sub-set of web 2.0. And it carries all the same benefits of article marketing. The extra top secret benefit of video marketing is that it’s much easier to rank for competitive keywords than in any other medium.

OK, so how do you do effective video marketing?

  • Set up your YouTube account
  • When people view your videos, you want them to visit your site, so turn all the other modules in your profile off
  • Use the tags in your profile to enter the keywords you want to rank for
  • Make sure to include in your profile a link to your site
  • Upload at least 1 video
  • Include your keywords in the title, description and tags

Summary:

This is a great overview to get your started generating massive traffic to your site.
