Four Ways To Increase Traffic
As a blogger or e-business owner you want to increase the traffic to your website or websites. More traffic leads to more publicity, comments and sales or subscriptions to your site.
You can pay Google or Facebook to get more visits. This means that you will pay for every person who stumbles upon your ad! You can set a maximum budget per click, but I will cost money anyhow. An Adwords or Facebook Ads campaign may work for your blog or site.
In my slightly experienced opinion it is better to improve your natural or organic traffic. Natural traffic are visitors that just type in your webadres. Organic traffic comes from people that use certain key words to find their information on search engines like Google and Altavista.
There are four strategies to increase your traffic right now!
1. Write awesome posts on your own site!
Your products will look more professional when you post awesome content to your site. Your unique posts will trigger search engines (takes a few weeks) to rank your website higher. The highest ranking would be a first page ranking but you might never get a first page ranking for most or all relevant keywords.
2. Search Engine Optimization
Install a SEO plugin when working with Wordpress to easily increase organic traffic to your site. In case you aren't working with Wordpress you can try to put some important keywords in your html code. I can advice you to hire a SEO specialist to improve your websites Search Engine Ranking.
3. Publish awesome posts on eHow and Infobarrel
Publishing articles on crowd sourcing sites like eHow and Infobarrel will not only make it possible for you to make an extra dime. If you write and publish selfmade and genuine articles about topics related to your blog or business you can mention and implement reference to your own site.
4. Work together and help each other!
Work together with other entrepeneurs and bloggers and start helping each other out. You may promote each others products, use their e-products as an upgrade to your own sales package or just mention them on your site as worthwile sites to visit. Coorperating with bloggers that have the same or almost the same targeting audience may sound dangerous but it can skyrocket your traffic and sales conversion. Think about it if you can be an affiliate of each others products you can earn a commission on each others sales. Your website will also seem more reliable when someone else recommends it.
