Top 3 Traffic Generation Techniques
Did you know that over 580 million people worldwide now have access to the Internet? That's a lot of potential customers, yet most webmasters still have trouble even getting a few hundred
visitors a month.
Do you want to know a few secrets that will explode your Internet business into the stratosphere? I'm sure you do, so listen up because I'm going to share with you my most closely guarded
traffic generation secrets that have consistently generated hundreds of targeted visitors to my websites everyday.
Traffic generation technique #1 Getting listed on Google
Google is currently the most popular search engine on the Internet and is one of the only search engines that still list webpages for free. If you get listed on Google, your webpages will also appear on Yahoo, AOL and several other search engines, resulting in lots of quality free traffic to your website.
- Step 1. Find popular key terms related your website using the search term suggestion tool. http://inventory.overture.com
- Step 2. Check if your key terms have a lot of competition.
Google ranks each website's importance from 1-10 according to how many popular websites are linking back to it. It displays each webpage's ranking on the Google toolbar. You can download the Google toolbar here: http://toolbar.google.com
Search for your key terms using the Google toolbar and if the top 5 websites for your key terms have a Google PageRank of more than 5, don't bother trying to compete. Ideally, you want the top 5 websites to have a PageRank of 4 or less.
- Step 3. When you have 2 or 3 good key terms, use them throughout your website.
- Step 4. Swap links with other websites. You want your link to appear on as many webpages as possible that have a Google PageRank of 4 or higher. Create a new page on your website to include links to your link partners’ websites and swap links with as many high ranking websites as you can. Google will find your links on other popular websites and list your website at the top of the search engine for the keywords you chose.
Traffic generation technique #2 - Article submissions
Get your website published in hundreds of ezines and websites around the world for free. Simply write an informative article related to your business and send it out to ezine publishers, article announcement lists and websites that accept article submissions. Be sure to include a small ad for your website at the bottom of each article! There are thousands of places on the Internet that accept articles. Searching for "submit an article" on Google returned 955,000 results! That should keep you busy for a while ;-)
Traffic generation technique #3 - Pay per click search engines
You can bid on keywords related to your website and get a guaranteed listing in the search engines. You only pay the amount you bid if someone reads your website's description and
actually clicks through to your website. Many pay per click search engines start bids at $0.01 per click. That's 100 targeted visitors for only $1! Better still, many pay per click search engines offer free advertising credits just for trying them out. Do a search for "free pay per click search engines" and tap into to this unlimited source of traffic today.
