Most webmasters keep their prized web traffic generating systems to themselves or charge an arm and a leg. I am one of the guys in the trenches. Before I share with you the simplest and easiest methods to generate website traffic I will begin with a little background information.
I have several websites and in the past
ten years I have worked with gurus that promised to deliver traffic to
my sites. In fact I have paid from $200 to over $2,000 for traffic to my
sites. I had one person that charged a reasonable fee and my traffic
went from 500 visitors to 8,000 visitors. Three years later his fee
wasn’t that reasonable, but I decided to go ahead and try another
website. After three months and two thousand dollars I saw no results.
many people know the search engines create algorithms so nobody can
beat the system. The gurus figure a way around this and charge lots of
money to drive traffic to your site. Then the dance continues and the
search engines create new algorithms. Next thing you know you are going
back to the guru or searching for someone new.
Many of us have
been sold a bill of goods about generating traffic to our websites and
the lure of getting on the top ten. I can tell you from personal
experience that I have been in the top ten and it wasn’t that big of an
impact. The hook the gurus use to charge a higher fee is the number of
keywords you need to get in the top ten. After a while you’ll realize
that ONE keyword may have over one hundred variations.
with gurus creates a roller coaster of traffic to your website. Your
traffic and sales are dependent on the gurus and the search engines
algorithms. When you stop working with the gurus, or their magic isn’t
working, your website traffic and sales hit bottom.
Yes there are
rewards working with gurus, but you better have a hot site that sells.
Start with methods that cost less and allow your traffic to build. Check
your status reports to learn more about your visitors and the keywords
they used to find you. A good hosting provider will offer this with your
A wise marketer once told me that it was best
to get off the roller coaster and put my money into methods that build
steady website traffic. As an owner of a website, you learn how to
update your own pages so you are not dependent on someone to update your
website. The same goes for generating website traffic. When you take
the time and invest in building traffic on a regular basis, then you
will be free from the gurus and the search engines algorithms.
simplest and time proven techniques that take very little time are your
best answers. One method I know you have heard over and over is
submitting articles. Let me give you the WHY submitting articles is
important. When you are found in the search engines you are just another
listing on all those pages. When submitting articles, I get a loyal
audience that reads my articles each week. In fact, when they visit
another website and see other articles I have written on other topics,
it builds more credibility, rapport, link popularity and traffic.
website traffic is using a combination of methods. Submitting to the
search engines is still important, but it is only a part of your overall
traffic building strategy. With most search engines it may take one to
three months to see results.
Now here is the INSIDE INFORMATION
most gurus won’t tell you. I am using a traffic generating system that
is available to anyone at no cost. In fact it is simple to implement and
takes only ten minutes of your time to set-up. This system is instant
and you will see an immediate increase in your traffic and it you can
verify your results with your own status reports.
