Continue to Struggle with Web Traffic Generation or Automate the ...
If you have been trying to make a living at Internet marketing, you have undoubtedly tried many
things and been discouraged over and over again in your desire to acquire job-quitting income
online. You may perhaps have tried search engine optimization, keyword research, article
submission, list building, list swapping, blogging, and social network marketing. You may have
resorted to paid advertising including Google Adwords and other pay-per-click schemes, pay-per-
view, classified and banner advertising. You may also have tried affiliate marketing and joint-
The ironic thing about all of this is that while all of these techniques have a real prospect of
bringing you money, they rarely end up doing so because of the almost impossible mountain of
work, time and money they require from you just to start. There are many programs for sale that
claim to help you start bringing in money right away but soon after you are into them you
determine that they dont work for you. At times they are outright scams but, more often, they give
you only a portion of the solution and end up having hidden expenses like registering a domain
name, getting hosting for that domain and building the site and adding Google-pleasing content.
After all of this, you have probably had the realization that profitable Internet marketing requires
attracting highly-targeted traffic to your site or blog and then converting that traffic into actual
sales. Whats "targeted" traffic? Let me explain it this way: Theres an old aphorism that claims that
its difficult to sell refrigerators to Eskimos. Wouldnt it be more likely that you could sell a
refrigerator to a homeowner whose old refrigerator just ceased to work and whose food will go bad
in just a few hours? Targeted traffic is actual buyers who are searching for what you have to sell,
who desire it right now and who are searching the Internet with a credit card in hand. Non-targeted
traffic is made up of curiosity seekers and price comparison shoppers who have only a passing
interest in what you are selling and may not be ready to buy anything from anybody.
You have also, most definitely, realized that targeted traffic is delivered to you by high page
rankings in the search engines and that is why SEO or search engine optimization was created.
The real substance of the SEO game is the fact that if you give the search engines what they are
looking for (useful, relevant, original, fresh information) they will pay you back you by putting you
high up on the pages pertaining to your keywords or keyword phrases.
Another important factor that will provide you with high SEO rankings is the quantity of one-way,
inbound links that exist pointing to your site or blog from other sites, particularly from what are
called "authority" sites. An authority site is a site that Google, Yahoo! And/or Bing already consider
to be a primary source of quality information and other content. The thinking is that if such an
important website has a link pointing to your web site, then your sites information and content may
also be of exalted quality. If you have a lot of such links from authority (and other) sites pointing to
you, then you will rise up quickly in the search engine listings. Creating all these inbound links is
one of the recurring tasks that can be automated. Be careful not to add too many inbound links too
quickly as this can work against you in your SEO efforts.
The goal of SEO is to land your website on the first or second page in each of your keyword
niches. The more competition there is in a particular niche, the more difficult this will be. For
example, it will be harder to ascend to the apex of the keyword category "monkey wrench" than it
will be to do the same thing in the "left-handed monkey wrench" category.
By now, you will be able to observe that there can be a mind-numbing amount of time and effort
mandated to find victory in making money online. The good news is that there is a way around this
and that way is traffic generation software. There are many kinds of programs available on the
market but most of them fall short of giving you everything you will require to be triumphant as an
Internet marketer. This is because they frequently automate only one, specific task leaving the rest
of the labor to you.
The dream traffic generation software would be a single web page with a big red button labeled
"Make Money." While there is no such program, there are a few that approach that level of
perfection. Look for traffic generation software that can take away most of the recurring, boring,
overwhelming kinds of tasks that may have hindered you in the past. The last thing you want is to
increase your work load by being required to sit through hours of complex video tutorials, reading
long e-books and PDF files connected to training programs. Remember, the whole concept is to
automate every job as much as possible. You also need to avoid software that forces you to make
new web sites, produce your own products to sell or require technical skill like uploading scripts to
hosting companies. You dont need to be saddled with writing and submitting endless, original
articles to numerous article directories. And, for sure, as a beginning marketer, you dont want to
be required to put out a large financial outlay before you have even earned your first sale.
So, stop all your strenuous labor for a minute and spend some time looking on the web for the
best traffic automation software you can locate. Look for the one that most closely approaches that
dream software with the big, red "Make Money" button and make sure it has a solid money-back
guarantee. Its out there!
