    Website Traffic - Key Concepts

    Increase Website Traffic

    What I recommend for my clients is to think about your website in terms of a virtual window that customers will use to do business with you. It needs as much attention and resource allocation (time, financial and people), as a brick-and-mortar storefronts, and possibly more, depending on your particular business model.

    Once you develop your site and it is up and running, you need to focus on keeping the site competitive, maintaining relevance to your target audience, ensuring it is easy to find on the web, and perform some level of consistent marketing for your site, which can include many free techniques such as SEO (search engine optimization), blogging, social marketing optimization, email and newsletter marketing, creating inbound links to your site and fully utilizing Google Local and Analytics services. Paid marketing can include SEO (if you hire an expert to do it), SEM (search engine marketing), PPC (pay per clicks), targeted advertising on Facebook, issuing press releases, creating affiliate marketing partnerships and BTM (behavioral targeting marketing.)

    I'm going to share some of the most effective concepts that will help you increase your website traffic in 2010. You have three choices on how to handle development and execution. You can tackle it yourself, hire an external specialist or hire a full-time person or team to execute on your behalf. Your decision needs to be based on your resource limitations (time, financial and skill) and all three have pros and cons, which I'll cover in a later blog.

    Search Engine Optimization

    SEO is defined as the process of optimizing the pages on your website to be more visible to search engine mapping, thus increasing your chances of appearing higher up on the search results page. Research indicates that only a very small percentage of people move past the first page of search results, so you must be on the first page to generate meaningful traffic.

    SEO involves identifying and incorporating relevant keywords into your website text. Keep in mind that you want to think like a customer, and how they would search for you using a search engine. If you're a local business, you can improve your results by geo-targeting. For example, if you operate a website that sells books in Portland, you want to include "books Portland" or "books 97219" or "books Oregon" in your keyword strategy. Avoid single keywords when possible, as they are extremely competitive, and you should focus on as many keywords with three to four words as possible, to optimize your results.

    Also, keep keyword density in mind too. A good rule of thumb is to include your primary and secondary keywords in about 5% of your text per page. If you over-use keywords, most search engines will flag your site as a SPAM originator. Ensure your keywords are included in your URL, meta tags, headlines, second-tier text and body text. Include as much internal hypertext linking as possible to increase your SEO stature.

    Another SEO technique is to add as many back-links, or in-bound links, as possible that directs to your site. You can accomplish this by linking with social marketing sites such as Facebook, affiliate link sites such as LinkShare or partner sites that are willing to include a link on their site. Keep in mind, that quality vs. quantity is your key to success here. You can start with including your business profile on professional directory sites such as BIzNik or MerchantCircle. Another proven link-building technique is to take the time to review and read relevant blogs and articles and leave comments and a back-link to your site. These link-building techniques will increase your visibility with the search engine crawlers.

    Once you have completed these steps, make sure that you submit your website data to the top four search engines. As of December 2009, Google owned 72% of the search market, followed by Yahoo with 15%, Bing 9% and Ask at 2%. These four search engines own 98% of all search.

    Hi Kate,

    The truth is it is a long process and you need to be patient, very patient indeed.

    Just for a moment, forget it is a website and pretend it is an actual retail store. What would you do then?

    Simple things really like having your web address on business cards, letter heads and any marketing pages perhaps in free newspapers, or anything like that you can think of. This is all for free as you would have these anyway.

    Now it is an online resource and you want to get people to your site so the answer is to tell as many people as you can about it. Start with friends and family and hopefully they will tell their friends as well. That should get you some starting traffic.

    Then I would recommend writing articles and submitting those to the many online article companies.

    Then participate in any forums relating to your website. Make good comments without advertising too much and build up a trust and then start advertising.

    Any social net work site is good for advertising such as face book, quiddo, digg, delicious etc

    That take a lot of work but the good nes is it is all free.

    I have done this and it took me about 3 months to build everything and get it up and running. My daily traffic is now about 250+ a day and I haven't paid anything so it does work but it does take a lot of your time and effort.

    Good luck

    Now let's go

    Every SEO specialist has their own unique way of increasing website traffic; however in reality, website traffic and rankings will always be dependent on the search engine's algorithms. I really struggled to understand the concept of these algorithms as well but ended up chatting to the people at the link bellow and it really helped.

    There are so many ways and this is quite a complex answer. The main thing is "time". You must put in your time and effort to get traffic and get involved in social media marketing and link building techniques.

    It also really depends on what type of a site you have to determine what type of strategy you will take.

    One thing you need to do is set up several social media avenues.

    If your site is a blog, great! It makes things easy. If not, start a blog on your domain!

    There is a plugin called "Nextscripts",

    It automatically autoposts to 40+ social networks for you. Of course, you have to set up the social accounts first and then in the plugin settings you have to integrate them which is time consuming. I would recommend this to anyone wanting traffic and I do it personally.

    #2 suppose your site is about Internet Marketing,

    You would google certain queries that relate to your site and look for forums and blogs where users are asking questions about the topic. Go answer the questions

    • Patryk5 years agoReport

      Answer the questions and refer them back to your site. You have to remain active on every relevant forum, social network, blog, that you can find until you get your own traffic. It all comes down to building credibility online.

    1. Start driving traffic from other places- i.e. YouTube, document sharing sites,

    press releases, **REAL** blog comments, guest posts, and article

    syndication. Paid traffic can’t hurt either (it doesn’t have to be hundreds of

    clicks per day)

    Remember that Google likes popular, high quality websites. If your site is

    getting visitors from all over the internet, that looks a lot better to Google.

    And before you start thinking that “Google can’t see everything”, remember

    that Google owns YouTube. It sees when people click from YouTube to your

    site… or, when they don’t.

    2. Look at your site’s bounce rates. Are they extremely high? If so, add some

    videos for visitors to watch. Make your articles longer and more engaging.

    Put tools on there for them to play with.

    The key here is to do everything you can to make your visitors stay longer.

    The longer they’re reading your site/watching your videos, the more Google

    will think “oh, people do like the stuff on this site”. Go for high quality

    content, not just quantity.

    3. If possible, change the anchor text of your incoming backlinks. Since this

    usually isn’t possible, greatly vary the anchor text coming in from here on

    out. Use similar keywords, but don’t keep using your main keyword every

    single time.

    As mentioned earlier, this just looks more natural. If a bunch of bloggers are

    linking to something on your site, what are the chances that they’re all

    going to use your main keyword as their anchor text? Extremely low, a.k.a.

    it doesn’t look natural, a.k.a. don’t do it.

    4. From now on- diversify, diversify, diversify. You want to drive traffic through

    quality backlinks from multiple sources with varying anchor texts. That’s

    the name of the game with SEO from here on out.

    And you know that? This kind of SEO is going to be rock solid for a long,

    long time. As the internet changes, it will constantly be battling spam. You

    don’t want to be a spammy looking, over-optimized website. Instead you

    want to look like a solid, helpful site that visitors LOVE, keep coming back to,

    and sharing with their friends and family.

    5. To keep visitors on your site a lot longer, do plenty of internal linking

    between pages and posts. Wikipedia does this, and it makes it MUCH easier

    to find what you’re looking for at times.

    So for example, let’s say that you have an article talking about how to train

    a German Sheperd how to sit. Well if you also wrote an article explaining

    how to train your German Sheperd to fetch, you should link to that! The

    person may be interested in reading that, too.

    6. Hop on the social networking bandwagon. Facebook and Twitter are the big

    ones, but you can use reddit, Stumbleupon, Digg, Pinterest and more. Since

    the internet keeps moving towards the social aspect, go with the trend!

    For paid traffic and good SEO you could always go to www.buywebsiteuniverse.com. They do everything there.

    There are really so many option out there. From SEO to Social etc

    Really depends on lots of factors and the niche. However, I use Youtube as a source of untapped traffic. Millions of people watching and searching videos daily. Its untapped potential targeted traffic.

    Let me know what you think.

    Just like what the people before me said, a website is like a window of your business to the world. Without a good window, customers won't be able to notice your existence. In the same way, without a proper maintenance of your window, in a form of SEO, no one will notice that your website has ever existed.

They’re one of the leaders and seem to be providing a great cost per click or cost per visitor for users. Some examples put the cost per click at around $0.25 to $0.50. That’s a pretty good cost per click if you compare it to some of the other paid options available on market.

    Taboola - Taboola has a variety of publishers large and small including Politico. They deliver content including blog posts, videos and other branded content to the stable of publishers, pushing audiences back to the source of the content from “Around the web” as it often says next to the articles.
