SEO For Traffic Generation

Search engine optimisation or ‘SEO’ as it is more commonly known, is basically the method of improving your website so that it is optimised to get found on search engines more effectively. By optimising your website for the search engines your website gets a higher ranking and therefore gets placed higher in the listing of search results.

There are many different aspects of SEO that can improve your website, such as keywords, content and layout, some are visible to website visitors and others are only used for search engine ‘spiders’ to help the site get ranked better. A web spider is basically a program which scans the pages of your website by following each link and generating information from your website, a search engine would use this in order to give your website proper rankings.

If you have never attempted SEO or web editing before then I suggest you seek some professional advice or help if you want your website found in ‘organic’ search results, organic results are quite simply results that have not been paid for by advertisers. If you are fairly confident you can do some basic editing then here are a few pointers for you.

Decide on your keywords (very important), I would recommend you try to stick to around three keyword terms for your website. Make sure you keep all your keyword terms related to the content in your website and they must also be targeted on the same niche as search engines will score your website on its relevancy.

When choosing your keyword terms, try not to make them too specific as the competition to get ranked highly with a specific or ‘general’ keyword will be far too great. However, feel free to try if you think you have a unique keyword. The best kind of keyword in my opinion is the ‘long tail’ keywords I spoke about in the article marketing section. Basically, an extended version of your keyword, so if you were using the keyword ‘blogging’ for example, it would become ‘blogging for great reasons’ or ‘blogging for new methods of traffic’ and so on.

keyword tools which will give you better long tail keywords are WordTracker Keywords and also SEOBook keyword tools.

 

The density of your keywords in your website content is also a factor that the search engines take into consideration when they scan your website. The search engines will look at your website to see how many times you use a certain word or phrase, the more times the word or phrase is used throughout a page, the higher the density. The search engines are very clever with their checks however, so do not be tempted to simply cram a load of keywords into a page, because as well as the readers enjoyment spoiled, you will get penalized by the search engine for it. The average that Google recommend for keyword density at this time is around 2%-5%, Yahoo and MSN are slightly higher, around 2%-9% keyword density.

Keeping your website content fresh and unique is also another important factor of SEO, for this reason the search engines love blogs and news related sites, as they are constantly updated with fresh and unique content. One third of your website must be different from any other website in order for it to be considered as unique.

Use variations of your chosen keyword terms throughout the content of your site, mix them up a little, add additional words, add plurals etc. Make sure you have your chosen terms at the top, middle and bottom of your pages.

Enlist a little help from some excellent software like Brad Callen’s SEO Elite, this will save you a load of time and get you much better results, which will in turn earn you a lot more money from your traffic. You could even set up your own SEO business, helping others with software like this.

If you want to improve the SEO of your blog, there is a great plugin called ‘All-In-One SEO Pack’ that will help you out quite a bit.

This next part is one of my pet hates with some websites. Navigation, your website must be user friendly to navigate and all the links must work or you will be penalised again. How many times have you came across a fantastic looking website but you simply cannot navigate your way around it? I know I have loads of times and it’s a crying shame as these sites look so good with great content. A good way to test your site is to give it to a website newbie or a child and ask them to find their way around the site.

Whatever you do, make sure you do not just dismiss SEO as a high ranking in organic (results that have not been paid for) search results will get you some serious traffic, not just temporary, but if you keep on top of it you can have serious traffic for good.

Website Traffic Hide n’ Seek

A website needs to be seen and be easily found.

 So tell me why you are hiding it it away out of sight and killing your business?

 Your website needs revving into shape, it needs re-fueling, and must be driven on the busiest main street, the world wide web, funneling tons of hot prospects and customers everyday.

Besides have you ever seen a McDonald’s restaurant on a deserted back street or dark alley that no one ever goes down?

Of course you haven’t, but for most websites with little or no traffic at all, it’s exactly the same thing as being located on a deserted back street or dark alley where no one will ever go.

The fuel required is traffic & lots of it – simple!

Sure, you might have a fancy site and looks great – or maybe you spent a fortune on it – which sucks, because you don’t actually bring in any customers… it’s what I like to call “lost in internet outer space”.

So now that you know just how important traffic is to your online business I am going to help you get the traffic you need to start seeing an instant profit online. I have assembled a one of a kind 6 part intensive online training program so you can finally uncover the most profitable methods for promoting your business online.

How to Generate Traffic Using Free Methods

In this post I will show you how to generate traffic using free methods only.

You have heard the saying, “it takes money to make money”, right?
But of course, with the versatility the internet offers, there are many ways you could find that could help optimise the potential of your site or business in generating traffic.

While there are ways to jump start your traffic flows, many sites don’t have the resources that others have to generate traffic for your site at all.
Well, you don’t have to spend a cent; all you need is the proper mindset and a lot of eagerness. You also must have the drive and perseverance to do hard work and research to generate more traffic for your site.

How sweet it is to have more traffic for your site without spending a single penny.
Now it’s a sure thing that many sites have articles that offer tips and guidelines in how to generate traffic using only free methods.
Because it is possible, you don’t need to speed a single penny, it may take time, to say honestly,
I’m not going to beat around the bush with you. You get better chances by paying for your ads, but at least you get a fighting chance with some of these free methods I’m about to tell you.

Take advantage of online forums and online communities. The great thing about forums and online communities is that you can target a certain group that fits the certain demographic that you are looking for.
You can discuss about lots of things about the niche that you represent or offer. Another great advantage is that you know what you are getting into and you will be prepared.

With online communities and forums you can build a reputation for your company. Show them what you are made of and wow them with your range of expertise about the subject, with that you can build a reputation and build trust with the people in your expertise and knowledge.

You can also make use of newsletters. Provide people with a catalogue of your products and interesting and entertaining articles. If you make it really interesting and entertaining, more people will sign up for your newsletter and recommend it to other people.
The more people who signs up for your newsletter, the more people there will be that will go to your site increasing your traffic generation.

Another great idea is trading links with other sites. You don’t have to spend a cent. All you have to do is reach an agreement with another webmaster. With exchanging links, the efforts both sites do will benefit both sites.
Traffic that goes to their site could potentially click on the link of your site and visit your site as well. This works well especially when both sites feature the same niche.

Write articles that could attract the attention of people that have an interest in your product. Try writing articles that will provide tips and guides to other aficionados. Writing articles that provide good service and knowledge to other people would provide the necessary mileage your traffic flow needs.

Many sites offer free submission and posting of your articles. When people find interest in your articles they have a good chance of following the track by finding out where the article originated. Include a link or a brief description of your company with the article and there’s a great probability that they will go to your site.

Write good content for your site. Many search engines track down the keywords and keyword phrases your site uses and how they are used. It is not a requirement that content should be done by a professional content writer. You could do your own but you have to make content for your site that is entertaining as well as informational. It should provide certain requirements as well as great quality.
Generally, internet users use search engines to find what they are looking for. Search engines in return use keyword searching in aiding their search results. With the right keywords, you could get high rankings in search engine results without the costs.

All of these methods and more will generate traffic to your site for free. All it takes is a bit of effort and extended man hours. Learn all you can about the methods depicted here and you will soon have a site with a great traffic flow without the usual costs that come with it.

How To Generate Traffic Using Forum Marketing

How To Generate Traffic Using Forum Marketing

If you need more traffic to your website (and who doesn’t,
honestly), you should definitely consider forum marketing as an
additional source of potential customers.

Discussion forums are great, and they’re available in a variety
of different niches from dog training to music to Internet
marketing.

The thing about forum marketing, however, is that you have to be
very careful and take the right approach so you don’t anger your
fellow forum members and even risk getting banned from the forum.

The best thing you can do is to become a member and start giving
as much useful information as you can.

You can simply go through the forum and look for questions from
other members you can answer, and then you would simply provide
helpful and relevant information that other readers will
appreciate.

Of course, if you have your own questions about a topic, you can
certainly add these as well as this will further contribute to
the overall discussion and community.

The whole idea here is that you’re not going to put any sales
messages directly in your post, but instead you’re going to
develop a reputation as something of an expert who is willing to
help out the people in this market.

Members of the forum will be able to visit your website by simply
clicking on the link in your signature, so this is a really low
key and safe way to promote your website and get more targeted
traffic from people who are interested in what you have to offer.

Just make sure to follow all of the rules of each particular
forum especially when it comes to your signature and whether or
not you can include affiliate links or other kinds of promotions
in your actual post.

If you focus on helping others consistently day in and day out
over the long-term, they will gradually take notice and visit
your website.

Five Ways To Generate Traffic

Here is a small list of five old Ways To Generate Traffic that still work

There is one hard and fast rule in generating income for your website: A steady flow of website traffic.

If no one goes to your site, it hardly bares a chance of generating an income. Many sites have tried and failed in doing so, and these result in the site’s demise. It takes a little money to maintain an income generating site; it could also take money to make money.

BUT, it takes a whole load of cash to generate website traffic for your site.

Ever wonder how big hit sites drive traffic to their site? Most of them are spending tons of money to drive the traffic, investing in many advertising campaigns and different forms of marketing schemes and gimmickries. This is all worthwhile because, well, they are what they are now, high earning, and big hitting websites.

You don’t have to do this if you don’t really have their resources. There are many ways to generate low cost website traffic without having to spend what you don’t have or can’t afford.

Many people have banked on high cost methods and have ended up losing their shirt over it.

Here I present to you with five ways to generate traffic. Even if you only get a small percentage of successful visitors in to client ratio this will still work, and especially if you get a high number of website visitors.

Exchange Links.

This is a sure and proven method. Rarely would you see a site where there is no link to another site. Many webmasters are willing to exchange links with one another so that they could produce more public awareness about their sites. You’ll soon see and feel the sudden upsurge of the traffic coming in to your site from other sites.

A major prerequisite in exchanging links with other sites is having the same niche or content as the other site. They should share a common subject so that there is continuity in the providing of service and information to what interests your target traffic.

Exchanging links also boosts your chances of getting a high ranking in search engine results. It is common knowledge that search engines ranks high sites that have inbound and outbound theme-related links. With a good ranking position in the search engines, you will generate more traffic in your website without the high costs.

Traffic Exchange

This is like exchanging links but on a different higher level. This may cost a bit more than exchanging or trading links but could be made cheaper because you get to earn credits. You can use those credits when viewing others traffic, while you earn credits when someone views yours.

Traffic exchange services are the viewing of another’s site or page. This is done vice versa where a site can use your sites contents and so can you to his or her site. You both benefit from each other’s efforts to generate traffic. The other sites visitors can go to your pages and know more about your site as well as theirs. Once again the public awareness of your sites existence is boosted.

Write and Submit Articles

There are many e-zines and online encyclopedias in the internet which provides free space for articles to be submitted. If you want to save costs, you can do the articles yourself. There are many freelance writers who are willing to write for you for a small fee, but to save money, it is wise to do those articles yourself.

Write articles that are themed along with the niche of your site. Write something that you have expertise on so that when they read it, they can feel your knowledge about the subject and will be eager to go to your site. Write articles that produce tips and guidelines to the subject or niche your site has.

Include a resource box at the end of your article that can link them to your site. Write a little about yourself and your site. If you provide a light, information-laden and interesting article, they will go to your site for more.

Make a Newsletter.

This may sound like hard work because of all the articles you may need to use to build a newsletter but on the contrary, this is not so. There are many writers and sites that are willing to provide free articles as long as they can get their name in on your newsletter. This will also provide free advertising for them as well.

As your newsletter gets pass around, you can widen your public awareness and build an opt-in list that can regularly visit your site.

Join Online Communities and Forums

This only requires your time and nothing else. You can share your knowledge and expertise with many online communities as well as your website. You can get free advertising when you go to forums that have the same subject or niche with your site.

Share your two cents and let them see how knowledgeable you are with the subject. As you build your reputation, you also build the reputation of your site, making it a reputable and honest business that could be frequented and trusted by many people thus increasing your traffic generation.
