What has happened to your traffic!!

Maybe it’s been happening over the past few weeks, or even months. Slowly, but surely, you’ve been watching your traffic numbers decline, despite not having changed much of anything about the way you publish content or optimize your website for the search engines. So exactly what has happened to your traffic.

Naturally, you’ll want to know exactly what’s going on and what’s causing this continual dip in traffic. For some problems, you may be able to look at your analytics platform to determine what content is seeing its traffic numbers decrease, which could help you clearly identify where you’re struggling.

However, in most cases, you’ll have to perform some kind of search result audit for your various keywords that will show you where you’re currently ranking on Google and its competitors for your most important keywords. Ultimately, this could reveal one (or more) issues that are holding you down in the SERPs and, thus, negatively affecting your traffic numbers.

But before you begin investigating, it might be helpful to know what you should be on the lookout for. So, here are the five most likely reasons that you’ve been seeing your website traffic decrease:

New Competition

Too many website owners and SEO professionals tend to a take an “it’s all about me” approach to their work, and when they start to have an issue like declining traffic, their initial instinct is to wonder what it is THEY are doing wrong and what THEY have to do to fix it. However, few immediately consider the possibility of a new website (or sites) that have moved into their niche and are luring away some of their traffic by offering comparable products or content. This is one of the reasons why conducting regular industry assessments and search audits is imperative.

Content is Out of Date

Every good content creator strives to make something evergreen that will last forever, so that visitors will consistently come to his or her website to read it. However, over time, the majority of content will become dated, and its value will begin to depreciate at a regular pace. One way to tell if your content isn’t as enticing to searchers as it used to be is to monitor that page’s analytics, and if something that used to get a consistently high influx of visitors now gets less and less, it’s likely that the content on the page is decreasing in value to most readers. A method for correcting this issue could be to produce a new, updated version of that content, and then to link to the new page on the old one.

Shifts in Algorithm Values

This is another instance where your decreasing traffic isn’t actually your fault. Occasionally, Google and the other search engines will alter their algorithms to give more weight to certain types of content for specific search terms. When that happens, images, videos, wiki pages or other content that is slightly different from standard Web pages may be given prominence over your site, which can have an effect on how much traffic you get from that search engine. If you notice that Google seems to favor certain types of content for one of your keywords or targeted search terms, maybe that means you should consider making a video or infographic the next time you consider writing a blog post about a that topic.

Caught Red Handed Being a Black Hat

imagesAt other times, SEOs are knowingly or unknowingly participating in “black hat” SEO tactics in order to move their sites higher up in the SERPs. Once Google and the others bust you – and they almost always will – they’ll penalize your site and send you way down in the rankings, and that will obviously affect your traffic. If you genuinely weren’t intending to be shady and just made a mistake, it’s important that you find out what your exact offense was and correct it as soon as possible, so that you can start trying to garner some good will with the search engines and make your way back up in the rankings.

They’re Just Not That into Your Content

However, the unfortunate truth is that much of the time, consumers just aren’t going to be that interested in the content that you’re publishing, meaning it’s not engaging or valuable enough to hold their attention and keep them coming back for more. And without engaging content, your traffic numbers are going to suffer. To rectify this problem, you should be aware of the top sites and blogs in your niche or industry, and take note of what they’re regularly publishing content about (in order to understand emerging trends) and what their readers are saying in comments sections and on social media sites to see what they’re asking for, so that you have a better idea of what content will be engaging and valuable to the visitors you want to attract.

Choosing the Right Keywords

What is the single most important thing you can do to insure the success of your website? One of the answers is to choose the right keywords.

Choose the right keywords.

imagesWhy is that, with all of the highly effective search engine strategies that we can employ? It’s rather simple. If you don’t choose the right keywords, all of your other strategies won’t help you at all, because those strategies build on top of choosing the right keywords.

Let’s look at it from the point of a view of a searcher. A searcher visits one of the major engines looking for your goods or services. He types in what he considers to be the most important topic, or keyword, for his search. Up come the results, ten per page.

If you haven’t taken time to choose the most effective keyword phrases, you may have done something like use the name of your company as your main keyword. If your company has significant name recognition, like Sony, that’s fine. But, if your company is like the vast majority of companies on the Net, optimising the page for the name of your company has just cost you some business.

Choose the most effective keyword phrase for your page!

How on earth do you choose your important keyword phrases? First off, don’t depend on yourself to choose the right keywords. Your searchers are probably not finding you the same way that you’d think they’d find you. Instead, ask your customers or someone outside of your business what they would type in the search window when looking for your site.

Optimise each page separately.

When working with search engines, consider the focus of each page separately, because the engines do. So, if you want top ranked pages, create content-rich information pages that centre on one or two topics only, and use those fine-tuned topics as your keywords for that page.

Don’t try to optimise a single page for every keyword that’s important to your business. It just won’t work. Instead, create separate content-rich pages and utilize your other keywords in that manner, and bring additional traffic into your site.

Let’s look at some tips on how to choose keywords.

Stay away from general keywords.

Take your keyword ideas and fine tune them based on each page of your website. While it’s tempting to choose very general keywords, like “computers,” don’t do it for a number of reasons.

First off, the competition will be fierce. And, more and more searchers are realizing that they can fine tune their searches and cut out never-ending search results by searching for phrases rather than single keywords.

Also, research has shown that when a searcher wants to purchase something, he conducts extremely fine tuned searches to find it. In other words, if he’s searching for a DVD title by a particular actor, he’ll search for the exact title or under the name of the actor, rather than simply “DVD.”

So, while having a web page that ranks extremely well for a very general keyword seems like the ideal situation, keep in mind that you may get more traffic, but you won’t necessarily get more sales.

Consider your individual goods or services.

imagesSome excellent keyword choices are the names of your individual goods and services. For example, if you’re a professional writer, create pages that advertise your services, such as “ghost writing” or “technical writing.” Creating a page for the very general keyword, “writing,” actually may not get you the business you want.

By the same token, don’t use trademarked terms for your competitors in your tags. Trademark lawsuits are springing up faster than blemishes on a teenager’s face, and you certainly don’t want, or need, to find yourself in the middle of one.

Take a general keyword and add a specific word to it.

If you can only think of very general keywords, start with a list of those keywords, and then add specific words to each one. For example, if you ‘re an artist, take the general keyword of “art” and add a specific word or two to it, based on your particular business. So, your keyword phrases may be “art lessons for children” or “modern art.”

Consider regional keywords.

Does your business cater to a particular region? If you have a restaurant in London, for example, your keyword phrase should contain the name of the city or state.

Different terminology?

Do people from other regions use different terminology when searching for your keyword phrase? If so, utilize that terminology in your tags or on your page, or create a separate page. For example, in the South, people call “shopping carts” that you find in grocery stores “buggies.”

What keywords are your competitors using?

Search for your competitors’ sites and see what keywords they’re using. Do NOT copy their tags or anything else. Simply review their pages to see if they might be using a keyword phrase that could be helpful to you.

Once you’ve determined your keyword phrases, don’t stop there!

As mentioned earlier, just because you think that a keyword phrase is perfect for your page, doesn’t mean that it is.

The bottom line here is, we’re after traffic to our sites. Even more to the point, we’re after paying customers! So, if our keyword phrase is so fine tuned that no one is using it, it will do us no good, even if we have a number one ranking for it.

On the other hand, if our keyword phrase is too general, we may get traffic, but we might not get paying customers.

In Closing

If you spend time choosing the best keywords for your web pages, it will add up to traffic and sales for your online business!

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”.

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.

Getting Traffic

Getting traffic is one of the most important tasks for any web
master. What is more, you can’t get traffic once and then just reap
the benefits. Getting traffic is an ongoing task and you must be
constantly doing it, if you want to get traffic and keep it.

Here are some of the ways to get traffic for free:

1 Optimize your site for search engines.

Search engines have always been a major way to get traffic for
free. That is why you need to do your homework and optimize your
site so that it ranks well for the keywords you target. SEO is
still the most powerful way to get traffic for free and you really
need to invest some time and efforts in the optimization of your

2 Frequently update the contents of your site.

If you expected some shocking secrets revealed, you might be a bit
disappointed. One of the first steps in getting traffic for free is
trivial but vital – get great content and frequently update it. In
terms of SEO, content is king. If your content is good and
frequently updated you will not only build a loyal audience of
recurring visitors, who will often come to see what is new, but search engines will also love your site.

3 Take advantage of social bookmarking sites.

Social bookmarking sites (especially the most popular among them)
are another powerful way to get traffic for free. If you want to
learn how to do it, check the How to get Traffic from Social
Bookmarking sites article, where we have explained what to do if
you want to get free traffic from sites such as Digg, Delicious,

4 Use your Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Social networks are also a way to get traffic for free. If you are
popular on networks, such as Twitter or Facebook, the traffic you
get from there can easily surpass the traffic from Google and the
other search engines. It is true that building a large network of
targeted followers on Twitter and supporters on Facebook takes a
lot of time and effort but generally the result is worth it.

5 Get links with other sites in your niche.

Another way to get traffic for free is from other sites in your
niche. Getting links with other sites in your niche is also good
for SEO, especially if you manage to get links without the famous
nofollow attribute. But even if the links are nofollow (i.e. they
are useless for SEO), they still help to get traffic to your site.
If you manage to put your link in a visible place on a site with
high volumes of traffic, you can get thousands of hits from this
link alone. If you need a list of sites within your niche where you
could get backlinks from, check the Backlink Builder tool. However,
be careful if you exchange links because linking to bad neighbors
can do you a lot of harm.

6 Use any chance to promote your site for free.

Free promotion is always welcome, so don’t neglect it. There are
many ways to promote your site for free and some of the most
popular ones include free classified ads, submissions to
directories, inclusion in various listings, etc. It is true that
not all free ways to promote your site work well but if you select
the right places to promote your site for free, this can also
result in tons of traffic.

7 Create a free product or service.

Content drives most traffic when you offer something useful. There
are many types of useful content you can create and they largely
depend on the niche of your site. You can have articles with tons
of advice, or short tips but one of the most powerful ways to get
traffic is to create a free product or service. When this product
or service gets popular and people start visiting your site,
chances are that they will visit the other sections of the site as

8 Use viral content.

Free products and services are great for getting free traffic to
your site and one of the best varieties in this aspect is viral
content. Viral content is called so because it distributes like a
virus – i.e. when users like your content, they send it to their
friends, post it on various sites, and promote it for free in many
different ways. Viral content distributes on its own and your only
task is to create it and submit it to a couple of popular sites.
After that users pick it and distribute it for you. Viral content
can be a hot video or a presentation but it can also be a good old
article or an image.

9 Use offline promotion.

Offline promotion is frequently forgotten but it is also a way to
get traffic for free. Yes, computers are everywhere and many people
spend more time online than offline but still life hasn’t moved
completely on the Web. Offline promotion is also very powerful and
if you know how to use it, this can also bring you many visitors.
Some of the traditional offline ways to promote your site include
printing its URL on your company’s business cards and souvenirs or
sticking it on your company vehicles. You can also start selling
T-shirts and other merchandise with your logo and this way make
your brand more popular.

10 Include your URL in your signature.

URLs in forum signatures are also a way to get traffic for free.
There are forums, which get millions of visitors a day and if you
are a popular user on such a forum, you can use this to get traffic
to your site. When you post on forums and people like your posts,
they tend to click the link to your site on your signature to learn
more about you. In rare cases you might be able to post a deep link
(i.e. a link to an internal page of the site) rather than a link to
your homepage and this is also a way to focus attention to a
particular page. Unfortunately, deep links are rarely allowed.

Getting traffic for free is a vast topic and it is not possible to
list all the ways to do it. However, if you know the most important
ways – i.e. the ways we discussed in this post and you apply them
properly, it is guaranteed that you will be able to get lots of
traffic for free.

Yahoo Answers Traffic

How To Generate Traffic Using Yahoo Answers
If you spend any time whatsoever searching through Google or
other search engines, you have probably come across a website
known as Yahoo answers.

Yahoo answers is a great site where users can post questions on
just about any topic imaginable, and then other registered users
will respond with their best answers.

As we said, the topics are many and varied, and they  include
everything from sports to health and fitness to topics about

The user who posted the original question can select the best
answer from the bunch, and this answer will be highlighted on
that webpage.

Users can earn points by answering other people’s questions, and
believe it or not some people really get into this by
accumulating thousands of points over time!

How exactly can you use this for traffic?

Well, one simple method is to include a reference or source at
the bottom of your answer (in other words, a link to your

Not every post on Yahoo answers has this kind of link, but many
people do include a link to Wikipedia or other websites that have
additional information on the topic.

All you have to do is include a simple link that will lead people
to a webpage of yours that contains additional information on
this specific topic, but you do have to follow some guidelines
and be careful.
The members of this website can get angry and report you if they
believe that you’re simply spamming the website for inbound links
and sales messages.

If you’re going to use Yahoo Answers to generate traffic, we
recommend spending a little bit of time each day and slowly build
your content.

You should answer a variety of questions and also post questions
of your own that don’t include any links to your website.

You can also occasionally link to other websites like Wikipedia.

You will, of course, link to your own website as well, but you
want to be careful to make things look more natural.

Above all, be sure to provide useful answers in your posts
instead of just providing a link to your website.

Solutions To Safelist Marketing

Safelist Marketing – Is It Worth The Effort?

In this post I want to tell you about a source of traffic that is generally overlooked by most internet marketers. In fact if you were to go to somewhere like the warrior forum and ask for advice on using safelists you would get a very negative response and quickly form the opinion that safelists are a junk traffic source that doesn’t deliver results.

Today I want to turn this negativity on its head and share with you the reasons why I love safelists and how I am able to generate hundreds of new leads for my online business using them.

Understand the market

Before you do any sort of marketing you need to understand what sort of traffic you will get, and ideally what type of product / service would perform well. For example before you set up an adwords campaign you would research which keywords to target and how much it will cost, and what research the type of landing pages being used by the other people advertising via adwords in your niche.

With safelists the traffic is generated by other safelist members clicking a link in their email. The most popular safelists work on a credit system, so the people clicking these links are doing it to generate credits so they can get their own advertisement out to as many people as possible.

What this means is that you will have ~ 10 seconds to make an impression on the visitor. Put yourself in the position of this safelist user and think about what would make you look up from the task of clicking all these credit links?

How Can You Grab The Visitors Attention?

The people who claim that safelists are rubbish are advertising the wrong things…

Do you really think you can sell the latest “product of the month” within 10 seconds to someone who’s thinking about the next site before the one you’re promoting has even loaded in the browser?

I really hope you have realised that the answer to that last question is no!

So to be successful with safelists you need to have a splash page that will load in under a second, summarise exactly what you are selling and smack the reader between the eyeballs with your call to action.

Give The People What They Want

Even if you have followed the above step a brillaint landing page on the best way to breast feed your baby is not going to work. Sure some people may be new parents but the 99.9% who aren’t will not be interested.
People clicking the safelist credit links are looking for 2 things.

#1 More Traffic
#2 A Way Of Turning This Traffic Into Money

So if you happened to have a free report called “7 Ways to Turn Your Safelist Credits into Cold Hard Cash” or “How To Generate Leads For ‘ACME MLM’ Using Safelists” it’s something that should interest the reader.

It Is All About ListBuilding

Like all other forms of internet marketing the purpose of using safelists is to generate traffic to your lead capture page, get them to enter their details, make them an offer, build a relationship through follow-up, and make more offers.
The beautiful thing about safelist marketing is that you have all you have to do is advertise your product to a steady stream of internet marketing newbies. The owner of the safelist has already spent time and money advertising in places where new internet marketers hang out, so all you have to do is to press send.

Remember that just simply by having your own opt-in page online you will already be an expert in the eyes of these newbies.

Don’t Forget The Chance To Network

We are living in the digital age where social networking is now commonplace.
When I’m clicking for my safelist credits I actually take a note of the affiliate pushing any programmes / services and try to find them on facebook. If this person is actively marketing on facebook and safelists they are exactly the type of person that I want to be networking with.
