5 Tips For Increased Website Traffic
There are lots of ways to get traffic to your
website however most people are interested in getting
the most traffic for the least amount of money,
preferably for free.
While it's difficult to get anything for free nowadays
there are still a few good ways to help build your web
traffic and still pay nothing.
1. Build a second content-rich website.
Because content is king on the internet many have
adopted the idea of building a content-rich site in
addition to their original sales site.
If you set up your title, description and keyword
tags carefully and find a good balance for your keyword
saturation, you may be better able to achieve high search
engine rankings with a site that contains only good content
Once you have built your content-rich site you can then use
the content to point your viewers to your sales site.
2. Add an article page to your existing site.
By adding article pages to your web site you can
once again point your readers to your sales page.
For example, let's say you have a website that sells
vitamins. Set up a few article pages that reference
vitamins such as a page on the benefits of vitamins,
how to take vitamins, the effects of vitamins, etc.
Allow each of the articles to reference links to your
This can be a very effective sales tactic because you've
attracted the attention of someone interested in your
topic. If they read your article and like what they've
read they're more apt to check out your links and you've
increased your chances of making a sale.
Also, with proper meta tags and keyword usage, an article
page is much more likely to make it to the top of a search
engine listing than a sales page.
3. Submit your articles
Any articles that you write should be submitted to as
many sites that accept articles as possible. This is
important because sites that accept and include your
articles in their article banks establish links for
you and you are not obligated to reciprocate.
4. Build your links through reciprocal linking
By establishing reciprocal links you are verifying to the
search engines that you have credibility. If high ranking
sites link to your site then the search engines
will find you worthy of high ranking as well.
Find sites that rank well and request a link exchange.
This can be done manually or you can purchase linking
programs that will automate this for you. Either way
spend a few weeks focusing on creating quality links
and you will soon see your link ratings go up as well.
5. Join and participate in online forums.
The internet is full of discussion forums that cover
hundreds of business and non-business topics.
Find a forum in your topic and look over the discussions.
Ask questions, contribute your expertise and get to
know some of the forum members. This is an excellent
opportunity for you to meet others and introduct your
website. It also helps build trust while helping you
learn how others have found success.
