Ways to Get Traffic for A Website


In case you own a website, then you can be certain that there are a number of dilemmas that you will have to contend with. One of this is finding the best ways to get traffic for a website. Of course, you may be getting visitors to your web site. However, in case it is not making any sales for you, then this is neither here nor there.

Of course, most websites that have many websites that get visitors tend to also have great sales. However, there are also instances in which you are not getting any traffic. This means that chances are very high that you will also not be making any kind of sale. If you find yourself in this kind of situation, then you can rest assured that you will need to read on so as to understand the best tactics you can use to direct more traffic to your web site.

One of the best ways to get traffic for a website is to make use of software. There are many software programs out there that people can now rely on to direct more traffic towards their web sites.

These web sites are peculiar in the sense that they differ in the kind of work that they are engaged in. They include web site visitors tracking software, web site statistical trackers and web site analytics. As the names suggest, you can rest assured that they have different roles to play when it comes to increasing the number of visitors who come to your web site.

Still, irrespective of the name that is attached to these software suites, all you need to remember is that they will go a long way in helping you understand the true value of the traffic that is coming your way. Thus you will better know why you may be getting so many visitors but there is no clear change in the number of sales that you are actually making.

The software will also ensure that you get a clearer picture of the main reason behind how your site is performing. You will be able to discover how many people are visiting your site, how often your site is visited and the location of your most frequent visitors.

However, the number of visitors is not important except to the extent to which these visitors are converted to customers. This is referred to as the conversion rate. Therefore, you will want to ensure that it is the target customers that are your most frequent visitor because they are more likely to make sales for you.

There are many other ways to get traffic for a website apart form the use of these software suites. For instance, you will also need to improve on the overall design of your web site. This is mainly because most people normally scan sites they visit instead of reading through the content therein. Therefore, improving the  design will make it easier for visitors to scan your site and this will translate to more sales as a result of better satisfied visitors.

Improving the Quality of Your E-Commerce Site

Improving the Quality of Your E-Commerce Site


If you run an e-commerce site, one of your main concerns is obviously how to make your business as profitable as possible. This can be done in various ways, such as by using advertising methods that would direct high quality traffic to your website, as well as using various on site and off site methods to retain existing customers and make them come back to shop at your website again. Most e-commerce website operators would say that they are satisfied with how their website is operating, but there are always some things that you can consider improving in order to make things better, both for you and your customers.

Some of these main elements are the look and feel of the site, prices and policies, promotions available to your customers, as well as general service and support that you provide for your products. Remember, it’s not just about the quality of the products themselves (though this is an important point), but also about your website and how you run your business in general.

But which improvements should you make to your website? There are a few ways to find out, however one of the most important ones would be simply to ask your customers and website visitors about how they feel about your online business.

Getting feedback from customers is relatively simple. One of the more common ways of getting it is by having a small message on your site which invites them to take a poll about what they like on your site and what they don’t. It would also be a good idea to include a form where someone can write specific concerns that they have which aren’t listed in the poll options.

If you notice that participation is low, you may consider offering an incentive, such as a small discount on their next order, an additional item for free, participation in a contest to win a prize, etc.

The next best way would be to pay attention to your social media accounts. If your customers visit your Facebook page, they could leave you some comments or questions on your wall. Take their opinions into consideration, as this will help you see how you can improve your website.

Of course, let’s not forget direct communications between your customers and you. If several of your customers contact your support about a problem during the checkout process, or a section of your website being difficult to navigate, for example, then these are certainly things worth looking into further and fixing as soon as possible.

Remember that listening to your customers and site visitors is the best way of getting the a customers perspective on how well your website is doing.

Tomorrow we will explore some more ways that you can improve the quality of your e-commerce website, which will give it the potential to be more profitable as it provides a better and more problem free online shopping experience for your buyers.

Tips for Promoting Your Blog: Part 1

Tips for Promoting Your Blog: Part 1


Now that you’ve created your blog and added some useful and informative content to it that is sure to keep your visitors interested in it, you may still have one issue: how to get more visitors to see your blog. We all know that in the online world, quality traffic to any website equals more money for the webmaster. But unless you send your blog to one friend and it suddenly goes viral (which can happen, though is very rare), you will need to take some action yourself in order to promote your blog to your targeted audience. This isn’t complicated and it simply requires that you follow a few tried and tested internet marketing tips. Here are some of them:

Establish Good SEO Practices

If you have a blog, then you’re already at a slight advantage over other sites, since search engines such as Google tend to love blogs. But you would still need to take some actions to give your blog “better SEO”. The first thing would be to think about the inclusion of targeted keywords in your blog posts. Optimize your posts for your targeted keywords by maintaining a density of around 1% to 2%. Try not to over do it, as it would look like you’re just keyword stuffing. Also, don’t force keywords in phrases where they would make no sense. Search engine algorithms have been updated recently to detect such things and you will end up being penalized for having nonsensical phrases in your posts that are obviously designed to boost your rankings rather than give your readers some useful content. There are a few plugins that will help you analyze the SEO qualities of your blog posts, for example SEO Pressor for WordPress. Use them to your advantage.

Link to it From Your Main Site

If you already have some steady traffic flowing to your main website, then including a link to your blog can be a logical thing to do. If you’ve just launched your blog, then including a mid size square button on your site or making an announcement on it can build some interest in your blog rather quickly and bring your some much needed traffic to it. After all, if your site visitors don’t know that your blog exists, they won’t visit it and will just stay on your website.

Announce it in your Email Campaigns or Link to it in your Email Signature

If your blog is new, having an entry about it in one of your email messages that you send to your mailing list is recommended. You already know the importance of linking to your main website in your messages by including a link to it in your signature at the bottom of the email. You can do the same thing with your blog in your subsequent communications to your customers. Of course, if you’ve made a new and interesting blog post, you can also make this the topic of one of your email newsletters. Rather than copying your blog post in your message, link to the relevant post on your blog.

Your SEO Goals Should Be Realistic

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Your SEO Goals Should Be Realistic


When it comes to SEO, there are plenty of misconceptions, especially among new webmasters and those who have just started out in online business. Some people seem to believe that just by doing the most basic SEO work or by hiring some SEO “expert” for $5 at Digital Point, they would be able to propel their site to 1st place on Google within a few days. For anyone that thinks that way, well sorry but this is just not how SEO works.

 

If you want to improve your websites ranking on the search engines, then your goals will need to be realistic. One of the ways of doing so would be to take a look at the websites that are already ranked for the keywords that you are targeting. Do a keyword analysis of your site to see which keywords you would be better off targeting. In many cases, you will be able to find some long tail keywords that are more specific to your offerings and that have less competition. If you do business at a local level, then targeting some local keywords can also be very helpful. Once again, the reason behind this is that the competition for local keywords is a lot lower than for the more general ones, thus it would be much easier for you to rank for them.

 

One thing that you will need to understand about SEO is that it is more of a long term process, rather than an instant solution to get traffic to your website right away. If you have just created your website, then it can take several weeks or even months before you are able to get any decent amount of traffic from natural search engine results in certain high competition, popular niches.

 

For this reason, you need to consider using some other advertising methods in the meantime to bring some traffic to your website. Pay per click search advertising obviously comes to mind here. Many would say that it brings you the same results than SEO, but is able to do so a lot faster. The major drawback, however is that you will need to spend some money on it, sometimes considerable amounts if the keywords that you are targeting are quite competitive and thus very valuable.

 

If you truly want your website to bring you the money that you want, then you would need to understand that online advertising is a very diverse environment, where you have dozens of different ways to generate traffic to your website besides using SEO. Using media buying, article marketing, social media marketing or video marketing are all things that you can do alongside SEO to make your site more popular. Remember what the main focus behind creating a website is: to make money for you. By employing the proper strategies to get the visitors that you need, you will be able to improve your ROI by getting more visitors and turning these website visitors into profitable clients for your business.

Using Video Sharing Sites For More Traffic

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Using Video Sharing Sites For More Traffic


There are many ways to use a video sharing site such as YouTube in order to get traffic to your website. Since broadband internet access has made viewing and sharing online videos a lot more accessible, many online marketers have jumped on the occasion of using various video sharing sites to get traffic to their sites. Video sharing sites like YouTube are not just places where you can watch some funny video of a dog riding a skateboard or a kid falling off his bike. When used correctly, they can turn into a powerful marketing tool for you.

The first question that comes to mind is what kind of content you should create. Many people believe that creating videos is a time consuming task which will take hours to complete. While anything may seem difficult at first, it will actually become quite easy as you get more used to it.

As an online marketer, you probably already know the importance of creating unique articles to have some useful content on your site and to submit to various online directories in order to get traffic to your site. Well, it is possible to turn these articles into short videos.

All you need to do is to take the content of the articles and to change it into a “presentation” format, similar to PowerPoint slides. You would then do a voice over, explaining the various parts while the viewer follows on screen. This works very well, as some people don’t like reading long articles but instead pay more attention to what you have to say when you turn it into a video. At the end of the video, you would invite the viewer to visit your website to get more information.

Another possibility is creating instructional (how to) videos. These will give the viewer information on how to do something that is related to your website’s niche. It takes a bit more effort to get done and will probably involve taking a video camera and actually filming things. But if you are in a niche where most of the things are done on the computer (such as website building, “make money online”, investing, etc) you can simply use a screen recording software and voice over to provide explanations to the viewer.

One thing not to do is to create videos that are simply a commercial for your site. Those who browse video sharing sites rarely do so to see advertising material. Provide something that will be interesting and captivating to the viewer and you will have a better chance of them visiting your site after looking at your video. If you create content that is useful and interesting, you will find that viewers will share it with other, either through social networking sites or by embedding your video on their own websites or blogs. All of this means more potential traffic and more potential customers for your business.

What Offers To Promote With Yahoo Answers


We’ve seen that you can use Yahoo Answers in order to get some free traffic to your website. But some people wonder whether it is the right place for them to get traffic for THEIR site. Let’s take a look at what types of offers or products that you can successfully promote using them.

Affiliate/CPA offers.

This is the main thing that online marketers do to earn money: push some affiliate offers. You can get traffic to your offers by using Yahoo Answers, but you need to do it the right way. First, don’t post affiliate links on Yahoo Answers. Doing so will rapidly get you banned, as remember, it is not a place to advertise, but rather to share useful information. Therefore, you will need to build a landing page and get a domain name for your site. A $0.99 .info domain will do here.

Now, what kind of offers will do well here? While some people have had success with offers that require a credit card or a purchase, I have noticed that offers which simply require the person to sign up for a site or fill out information do better.

For example, if you are targeting the “make money online” niche, you have some options. You could build a simple, one or two page site that gives information on various paid survey opportunities and insert your affiliate links there. When you answer the question, provide some useful information about how online surveys work and how they can make some easy money and then send the reader to your site in order to compare various survey sites. You could also build a landing page for a free biz opp offer and send the reader there. You get $2 – $5 for every person that fills out the form.

There are other niches for you to explore as well. Many people ask questions about how much car insurance costs or how to get a student loan. There are plenty of pay per lead offers which are related to these niches. Just answer the askers question, and then tell them that “you found this site” which lets them compare car insurance quotes or get proposals for student loans, etc. Try out various types of offers and see what converts best.

No matter what you do, do not simply spam your website link all over the place. You should appear as a genuine participant in Yahoo Answers. Ask questions yourself. Answer some questions in other niches without linking to any website.

You could do this in about 1 or 2 hours each day. But if you want to save time, you can always hire a freelancer to answer the questions and participate for you. There are plenty of people who would be willing to do the work for you for a small amount, such as $0.25 per answer they post on the site.

Using Yahoo Answers To Get Free Traffic

Using Yahoo Answers To Get Free Traffic


As we all know, traffic is king in the internet marketing world. No traffic to your site equals no money for you, since there is no one visiting your site. There are various ways that you can use to get traffic to your website, but many webmasters are looking for free traffic. Is it even possible? Don’t you need to spend money in order to make money? Well, thanks to the power of the internet, it is possible to get free exposure for your site and thus draw visitors to it.

Yahoo Answers is a very good way to bring people to your website. For those of you who don’t know, Yahoo Answers is a place where people ask questions about various topics and others give them answers. The good thing about this platform is that you can insert a link to your site in your answer. Also, the site gets a lot of traffic from all around the world. What makes it a great marketing tool is that anyone can see the questions and answers, not only the person who asked the question.

But in order to stay out of trouble and get the maximum benefit from Yahoo Answers, you need to conduct your marketing activities properly. Remember, this is a place where users seek information. They don’t come to Yahoo Answers in order to be bombarded with commercial advertisements. After all, if someone wanted that, all they have to do is to open up their “Junk Mail” folder in their email account, there’s plenty of ads there all right.

When you answer a question, be sure to state some useful information and not just say “Here go to this website NOW!!! (your link)”. For example, if someone asks whether online surveys are legit or a scam you would say something like “While there are a few scam sites out there, most online survey sites are legit and pay you either in cash or by giving you stuff like gift card, I found a list of legit survey sites that are free to join here: (your link)”. It is better for you to build a landing page, rather than insert affiliate links. This will seem a lot less suspicious to Yahoo.

To stay below the radar, vary your answers, don’t simply copy and paste the same answer to everyone, even if the question is the same. Give answers in different topics as well, without inserting any links. Even if the site you are promoting is related to online surveys, for example, answer some questions about other things such as dogs or computers or whatever else you may know about as well. This will make it look like you are a legitimate contributor, rather than someone who is just answering questions related to their niche to get clicks to their own site. You should give more answers without your link than those with it.

The traffic that you will receive may start slowly, but if you keep at it you will soon get enough visitors to make some decent commissions or sales each month.

Drive More Traffic To Your Site

Drive More Traffic To Your Site


In order for a website to be profitable, it needs visitors. The more people that see your site, the more products you’ll sell, and your ads will get clicked more frequently. There are a number of ways to bring in more traffic to your site. Let’s take a look at a few of the more effective ones.

PPC Advertising

PPC (pay per click) advertising is a great way to drive traffic to your website. Use a service like Google Adwords to create some ads, and get them out to your audience. If you’re going to go this route, it’s important to set a budget for your ads. You don’t want to spend more on advertising than you’re going make. For example, if you spend $10 per day on advertising, you should be bringing in at least that much from sales, or ad revenue.

Article Marketing

Article directories can be a great source of traffic. Just find one that represents your niche well, write a few 300 – 500 word articles every week, and post them to whatever article directories you like. Include a link to your site in each article, and over time, you’ll begin to see a solid amount of traffic coming into your site from your article marketing efforts.

Social Networking

You probably know a lot of people with Facebook and Twitter accounts. That’s because a lot of people in every demographic imaginable are using those services. Facebook alone has over 500 million users, and some of them are bound to be a part of your target audience, so setting up a Facebook page for your website is a good idea.

Spread The Word

Put a link to your site in your profile on any sites you visit frequently. If you comment on a popular blog a lot, make sure your account is linked to your site. If you post on forums a lot, make sure your site is listed in you signature. Everything you can do to spread the word about your site will help to bring in more traffic.

Each method listed above for driving traffic is simple, and effective. Aside from PPC advertising, they’re all free too. You can bring in more traffic to your site quickly, and for very little money if you know the right methods to use.

Drive Traffic To Your Site Without Spending A Dime

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Drive Traffic To Your Site Without Spending A Dime


Online marketing can be a daunting task, especially if you’re on a tight budget. Fortunately there are a few ways you can drive traffic to your website without having to spend any money.

Never underestimate the power of word of mouth. The first thing you should do once your website is completed, and ready to be shared with the world is tell your friends and family about it. Be sure they’re clear on what niche your site serves, and let them know that you’d love it if they recommended it to anyone they knew who might enjoy it. Depending on your niche, and the size of your circle of friends, this can actually bring in more traffic than you might expect.

Using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook to promote your site is very similar in nature to the word of mouth marketing mentioned above. The first goal of your Twitter or Facebook account should be to make friends. Once you’ve got that down, it’s time to start showing those friends your site, and encouraging your new internet friends to pass that site along. Keep in mind the part about making friends. If you just fire your link off to random strangers seconds after sending them a friend request, you won’t get very far. Take the time to send messages, and reply to theirs. It really doesn’t take as much effort as it sounds like it does, and the benefits are worth the investment of time.

Social bookmarking sites are another great way to spread your link around. Start an account on a social bookmarking site, and fill it with sites you like. Include plenty of things from your niche, but don’t be afraid to include other things too. Over time, throw in links to your own site, and as your account gains attention, so to will your website. Take some time, and send friend requests to people with similar interests, and you’ll be on your way to more traffic.

All of the above mentioned ways to build traffic are completely free, but they all require an investment of time, but it’s worth the effort. That investment of time will yield quality visitors to your site that are interested in your niche. These methods are highly effective at reaching your target audience, and at the end of the day, that’s what really matters.

How-To Generate Leads through Blogging

How-To Generate Leads through Blogging


The toughest challenge for all online business owners or even offline business owners with an online component is driving traffic to their website. And of course, just having any old person visit your website is no good if they aren’t interested. Owners want and need targeted traffic, which basically means that they need a bunch of people visiting their website all of which are interested in what they have to sell. The best way to gain this targeted traffic is through a weblog, which have become more commonly known as just blogs. Blogs help your business gain credibility on the subject of your product along with that targeted traffic that was mentioned before. These two products of your blog will go hand in hand in generating you and your business more sales.

Now, you might be wondering why a blog is suggested when most of them on the internet just sit there not being read. We have to take into account that about half of these are personal blogs, which no one cares about, and another big majority are spam blogs, which either copy posts from other blogs, or are just full of ads trying to sell products that don’t even work. Of course, blogs don’t work overnight. It does take a while to gain readership and a good reputation. Plus, if you try heavily advertising straight away, people will probably think you are another one of the spam blogs, and just leave.

There are many important aspects of your blog that you must pay attention to when building it. One is structure, where you must build up to your product with actually useful information. No one will buy what you’re selling without you first convincing them to do so, and then when you do plug your product, you should still do it subtly. You must also promote your blog, and thereby your website. There are many free and paid ways to do this, but after research, the free way is recommended, because it allows for about the same exposure if done correctly as the paid options will provide.

Remember, everything is what you make of it. If you don’t put much work into your blog, and just let it sit there without updating it, it will fail. If you pile ads on it, it will fail. You need to take time, and put content on there that will be useful to your customers, and interest them in the product that your business offers. Otherwise, you will be wasting what little time you are even putting into it.

Tips for Using Blogs as a Traffic Source

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Tips for Using Blogs as a Traffic Source



A great example of a nicely integrated store/blog.

Blogs can be a great source of traffic for your main website. If you are selling Android accessories for Android based cellphones, it would be a great idea to have a blog set up as a side project in order to do a few things:

  • Keep your buyers and customers informed.
  • Keep constant new information coming from your website which can then be picked up by Google.
  • Announce product updates, etc.

As an Android accessory sales website owner, your most important thing is to get users and visits who A) have Android phones and B) might potentially buy something. It can be a great attractor for your visitors to see that you have a blog because it gives a personal element to your site as well.

Blogs are one of the resources which are free or very cheap to set up. These services are one of the essential traffic sources that any advertising plan needs to get more exposure to specific websites. The common options do take time to increase in readers and thus improving the influence it can have on the audience. Well established Blogs are also an important resource when you use them wisely to help you provide traffic to your websites.

The most common option is to create a blog with a popular service and keep it updated. The blog can be anything relating to the business, products or services which are being offered. The more information that is placed on these blogs, the more can be indexed into search engines which will help route common searches to the blogs, which in turn could route traffic to the website(s) that need the traffic. This option does take time, but the great thing is that many blogs can be created and be about different subjects in the industry and still lead traffic to the same website(s).

The other option which works well is to keep watch for blogs that offer information about the same field or subject that relates to the websites needing promotion. These blogs will usually have comment sections that allow for comments from readers to be shown. Of course, many of these comment fields will be offered with spam protection so the comments need to sound natural to post without being filtered out. The way that these comments can help improve traffic to websites is the fact that they are usually indexed by search engines. They can be used to place a link back to the websites that are being promoted for additional search engine weight.
