5 Ways to Get the Traffic You Always Wanted to Your Website
Are you having trouble getting traffic to your site? Are you looking for free ways in
which you can bring in more site visitors? Well if you are then this article will certainly
give you some good ideas. I am going to mention 5 sure ways in which you can get the
traffic you always wanted to your website, blog or web store; you can use these methods
for free, and although they may be a little time consuming you can set apart about 30
minutes from your day to do this every day; after a month you are sure to have regulars
visiting your site.
Take a Look at Freebies
- Use Yahoo! Answers.
Yahoo! Answers is a very popular place to be at this year. It probably gets the most hits
out of most Yahoo! services and it can be used by anyone with a Yahoo account for free.
What you will need to do in order to get free traffic from here is chose about 15-20
questions to answer on a daily basis. The way that this will work is, the questions you
answer must be questions that can be answered by something on your site or by going
there and asking for it. On your answer you will include a brief response to the question
that's being asked, and then you will point the person who asked to your site by placing
a link to it at the bottom as your signature. This will not only get the person who asked
the question to your site, but it will also get other people to your site who are viewing
the answer to that question for a long time to come. These answers are even indexed by
Yahoo, so you can be sure that the traffic will not stop that day.
Take a Look at Free Samples
- Social book marking sites.
Places like Digg, Delicious, Reddit, and StumbleUpon are some of the best places for
you to bring targeted traffic to your site. What you need to do is get all of your websites
page's/url's and then create an account at each one of those websites. Once you're a
member you will need to start book marking your pages as you create them on there.
Make sure to add good descriptions of each page you add, and keep up with any
comments that show up on there. If you have friends that are a part of those social book
marking sites it would be good to ask them to bookmark your pages as well; the more
bookmarks you have, the higher ranking your pages will get, and the more traffic your
site will have in a short period of time.
- Comments on other sites.
Do you know of other websites or blogs that do the same thing you do? Well if you do,
don't be shy to go and promote your website there through comments. This is actually
something you should definitely do, especially if those websites are getting a lot of
traffic on a daily basis and comments as well. Go ahead and find something that you can
comment on, on their site; leave your own comment to their article or content and then
add yours as well with a small description and link to a page on your site.
- Develop a nice mailing list and use it.
Although this isn't the easiest thing to create in the world, you need to start working on it
now. If you develop a nice mailing list with about 50 subscribers that want your
newsletter and that will visit your site then you're good. What you do after that is you
keep sending them offers and then you ask them to promote you to five friends of theirs.
This is something that will take time to be able to do, but if you have some loyal family
and friend members who will visit your page and contribute to it on a daily basis then
that's a way to start. If you're on a college campus you can also get a list of emails from
your fellow classmates or just random people whom you tell about your site and become
interested in joining your mailing list. Make sure to create good newsletters and post a
lot of links back to your site on it.
