How to Attract Free Traffic to Your Site in 4 Simple Steps

June 17, 2012 Posted by admin

Expert Author Ard-Jan Verhage

If you are like me and you’ve built websites for yourself or customers, it would be nice to see that you get actual visitors to that site! Else it would be a waste of time. To help you get traffic to your site I recommend following the next few steps.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money (e.g. AdWords) on your site promotion, there isn’t really a fast way to gets big amounts of traffic to your site. Getting traffic is a process not an event, so don’t expect results overnight. I know the Internet is full of offers teaching you to generate ‘instant’ BIG traffic, but that’s “to good to be true”. Like all offers in life, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is too good to be true!

Now on with the show:

There are several ways to get organic (free) traffic to your site.

1) Get a high-ranking in Google so that you appear on the first page for your keywords. This requires keyword research; narrow down your target market. It’s easier to reach number 1 in Google search results if you target a specific niche. This requires some basic SEO knowledge but anyone can do it!

2) Use Twitter for your site promotion, it really works. I always thought Twitter was for people who share useless information like letting everyone know they they’re sitting on the toilet. Search for people who are in your target business and Follow them, if they follow you back that’s OK. If they don’t after several days remove them and add others. This way you build a Twitter list of potential customers. If you place a tweet (several times a day with a link to your site) you will see instant traffic because people visit your site. There are Twitter automation tools for this process, manually would take too much time.

3) Facebook Fan page, this is a bit like Word of Mouth. If you have a Facebook fan page for your business and if you use it correctly, this will also generate traffic. People who ‘Like’ your site will generate free traffic, because their friends will take a look to. Recently I listened to a podcast of a popular site and they analyzed their traffic and it showed that of all sorts of traffic, Facebook-people spent the most time on their site. Looks like there’s a difference in the type of visitors depending on the sort of traffic.

4) Create a YouTube channel for your business. YouTube is the number 2 search engine in the world. If you create content on YouTube and people start using it, your ranking in step 1 will increase, because of the backlinking process. Backlinking means that other sites and blogs link to your site. The more backlinks you have, the higher you rank in Google.

I know this seems a lot of info/work but a lot of this can be automated or outsourced to a VA. Currently I’m in the middle of the above process and I’ve seen it work, so if you have any questions you can go my site at http://www.fullpullmarketing.com for more FREE traffic e-books.

5 Tips For Driving Free Traffic to Your Website

June 12, 2012 Posted by admin

By

If you are just getting started with a website and are currently looking for a few ways to drive traffic to your website then follow all of these tips to start generating organic (free) traffic to your website. This list will be the first of several articles that provide simple and effective tips for getting started. Let’s get started.

  • Start a Blog: Generating new content on your website is essential to being crawled by search engines on a regular basis. If you have started a website, then one would assume that you have a topic that you are passionate so take 20 minutes a day to put together an article on a relevant topic. We recommend no less than 3 updates per week or more.
  • Register with Every Search Engine: Yes, you know to register with Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask but there are many smaller search engines that you should register your site with over the first month or so in your first month of marketing your website. Use Google and Bing to search “Register my website” and “Register my website with search engines” will get you many of the choices that you seek.
  • Register with every top Directory: Unfortunately there are hundreds of directory’s to register your site with but it is a necessary evil. Some directory’s are worth more than others. A quick Google or Yahoo search will help you find the most popular. This is a tedious process but you will want to have as many quality back links to your site as possible in order to grow in organic search. A back link is having a popular site with a link to your website.
  • Register with Social Bookmarking websites: Make sure that you have a presence on the social bookmarking sites like Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon and many more. You will need to register so that you can submit articles that you find are interesting along with some of your own articles that you have written. We also suggest that you have tools for those visiting your website to tag the social bookmarking websites with your articles if they like the topic.
  • Define your Tag’s and Description of your website: As you register your website with each search engine, directory and social bookmarking website, you will need to have concise (short) description and tag line. Also do research and find which 6 to 8 tags (one word descriptions) that you will enter on several of these sites.

Starting with these five items will provide you with quite a bit of insight on other ideas about marketing your website or blog. Here is a list of websites for more SEO Tips. In future articles we will provide additional tips for those that have done all of the included tips and are ready to move on the next set. If you have any idea’s or suggestions – Please send us a note. Best of luck with your new website.

How to Increase Organic (Free) Traffic

June 7, 2012 Posted by admin

By

If you have ever tried to research techniques on how to increase traffic to your site you may have noticed an underlying theme in most recommendations – host a quality website.

Why host a quality site? Because a quality site is one that people want to visit and link to. So what makes a quality site? There are two versions of quality, one is how visitors judge your site and the second is how the search engines view your site. Search engines, in an attempt to stay competitive, try to deliver a quality product to the people that use their search tools, which means that they want their visitors to find relevant search results and use their search engine often.

So the search engine tips, tricks and traps popular five years ago do not work anymore, because they do not supply relevant page results. Search engines are now looking for applicable content, not only relevant but real content, not pages stuffed with keywords.

Here are our 56 tips to improve your website and how search engines view them.

1. Include relevant content, relevant to your page description and Meta keywords.

2. Instead of changing your URL or redirecting from your old URL to your new URL, follow Google’s procedure on URL changes to make sure your new site does not get skipped, or just avoid URL changes if you can.

3. Don’t post duplicate content on your site, so if you quote another page only include a small excerpt and don’t repeat your own content on multiple pages.

4. Avoid flash, even though it looks cool, flash and animated banners and intros annoy visitors and search engine bots don’t read them.

5. Submit to quality directories.

6. Make sure your robot.text files are not blocking destination URLs that you do not want blocked.

7. Choose your Meta keywords wisely and include them in your content.

8. Strive to obtain quality links into your site.

9. If you use icon or image links, include a text link.

10. If you operate an affiliate site, make your site a valuable resource, so people chose your site rather than go straight to your affiliate.

11. Add a site map.

12. Don’t use link schemes.

13. Write specific content, so searches can find applicable results. Instead of writing “books,” write “medical text books” or “organic cookbooks”, be specific.

14. If you include low quality links on your site, block them from being scanned by Googlebot.

15. Don’t break up your content too much, like loads of banner ads and so on in the middle or your text, irritates readers and bots.

16. Write unique and compelling content.

17. Don’t forget to include your page descriptions.

18. Don’t bury text content in images.

19. Look for un-indexed URLs, URL with more than a few parameters or dynamic links, they may be skipped.

20. Stay up-to-date on SEO, your strategies need to constantly evolve.

21. Deliver what you promise, don’t drive readers to inapplicable or irrelevant pages.

22. Carefully consider your titles, make sure to include targeted keywords.

23. Don’t forget humor or other devices that attract and keep readers.

24. Add text links with anchor links.

25. Keep links out and in up-to-date.

26. Start a blog or forum if it makes sense on your site.

27. Join BBB or your local Chamber of Commerce or other reputable business associations.

28. Submit articles to respectable and active article sites.

29. Add Alt tags to images for people that disable images.

30. Validate and 508 your site for accessibility.

31. Submit your business description to Wikipedia or other popular information sites.

32. Consider adding maps or mashups.

33. Submit to multiple search engines.

34. Consider marketing some of your subpages or articles that have less competition.

35. Don’t forget good old-fashion PR.

36. Start a little controversy.

37. Consider adding an RSS feed.

38. Write “top ten” lists, which are popular with article search sites.

39. Build a good site that others want to link to.

40. Eliminate grammar and spelling errors.

41. Publish a privacy policy.

42. Send out press releases when it makes sense.

43. Avoid hidden text and links.

44. Keep your content up-to-date.

45. Don’t employ redirects or “cloaking.”

46. Don’t create pages with bad content, like viruses, trojans, malware and so on.

47. Steer clear of empty, unoriginal affiliate pages.

48. Make sure every page is assessable through at least on static text link.

49. Use text, instead of images to relate important content.

50. Check for broken links.

51. Don’t put too many links on one page, even if it is a resource page, keep it well under 100.

52. Test out your site with a text browser.

53. Be leery of badly placed session IDs and arguments.

54. Employ the IF-Modified-Since HTTP header to let Google know if your content has changed.

55. Do not use “&id=” as a URL parameter, they are not indexed.

56. Avoid deceptive or manipulative techniques.

All in all, you just want to create a site that you would want to visit – one that is useful and up-to-date – that’s it, no magic, no tricks.

Free Traffic Vs Paid Traffic

June 2, 2012 Posted by admin

By

It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that paid traffic is inherently better than organic free traffic. You get what you pay for, etc. This is not necessarily true.

Many subscribe to a different line of thinking. These people along with me feel that organic free search engine marketing is better and in the long run more a more effective means of advertising and by definition cheaper. It requires some education, but well worth the time and effort.

You would have to learn SEO. This is all important with keyword research being probably the one single most important. This is not to undermine the other facets of SEO,,but if I were forced to name one, I say it would be keyword research. This is very important for your website as well as your article marketing and back links. This search engine marketing is not there for the short time of paid marketing, but there permanently to bring you traffic as long as there is interest. Paid consist of one time clicks and as soon as the budget is gone, so is the traffic.

The way that PPC and other forms of paid internet ads appear would immediately tell internet users that these are advertising and spammy with no helpful content. People just do not normally like to be sold to. Article marketing as I hope this one does is provide helpful content with traffic to my site and a backlink that is there for a while to continue to bring traffic as long as people are interested in viewing this article.

People will use the internet to shop but before they could go to any product to determine its quality and value, they need to what value it is to them and their particular situation. A informed well written article provides this.

There is a review of a program that covers the items mention in the above article and free traffic and SEO [http://www.genecolemanonline.com/my-my-onlne-business-strategy/].

How to Optimize Your Website For Organic Free Traffic

May 27, 2012 Posted by admin

By

Optimizing your sites to receive free traffic is a crucial part of site-building. Not only will it save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in paid advertising, but it will also remain a permanent asset to your site. If you decide to sell at some point in the future, you can simply show buyers your completely organic search engine traffic and that will lift the perceived value of the site, even if you don’t have high revenues.

So how do you go about optimizing your sites to receive free traffic from the major search engines, including Google?

The best way in which to go about this is to setup link exchanges with other site owners in your given niche. You can do this by joining a link exchange program which you can find through searches for “Link Exchange” on all of the major search engines.

You will want to setup links with high page rank sites that are related to your niche. Also, you will want to put your target keyword to optimize in the anchor text of your link. This is what the search engines will look at when they determine what your site is about based on the link.

If you setup a large amount of link exchanges, you will want to vary your anchor text to include several different keywords not just the one you want to optimize for most. This will ensure that you receive traffic for a number of different keywords.

In addition to a link exchange campaign, you will also want to run a complementary content-creation campaign. This will consist of creating new pages for your website based around keywords that are receive little traffic, but have no competition. This will allow you to virtually dominate all of the traffic for that given keyword.

Just remember, SEO is not black magic but instead a logical approach to finding underused keywords, some quality link building and optimizing your website for both the search engines and more importantly your visitors.

Using E-Mail to Quickly Attain Objectives

October 30, 2011 Posted by admin

Viral internet marketing is an integral part of a marketing campaign strategy that is used to quickly attain objectives. It isn’t the intention itself. If ever the main objective connected with an e-mail marketing campaign is marketing, in order to quickly attain greater marketing success advertising mileage you create your sales message or offer in a way that it induces pass-along.

Producing a message with a quality offer or an incentive for pass-along can be what virus-like marketing depends upon.

Just meaning that e-mail recipients frontward your message to the friends along with relatives isn’t viral internet marketing. A message towards the bottom of a e-mail this reads “Feel liberal to forward this particular message to somewhat of a friend” can be nowhere near to viral internet marketing at her best.

On the other hand, if something worthy of sharing, possibly valuable cut price, vital information and facts, additional entries in a sweepstakes, an added discount or even premium system, a joke/cartoon, or maybe a hilarious movie, is included in the e-mail, virus-like marketing transpires naturally along with quite efficiently.

The main thing is that the message has to be perceived for the reason that having value. Relevant or even timely information and facts, research, or studies are extremely good samples of content that might be viewed for the reason that potential pass-along product. Interactive content just like a quiz or even text may well inspire forwarding, especially should it be fun. Personality tests, well being quizzes, or compatibility questionnaires are extremely things which are passed at by some people many times. Why? Since they’re entertaining along with entertainment has got value.

A multimedia systems experience is constantly going to quickly attain some pass-along. Someone is constantly touting the huge benefits. It is a lot more of an occasion and capital investment even so the messages have got a great enchantment and wealthy media has the benefit of being completely new. The tech factor alone can be enough for any message being perceived for the reason that valuable.

 

3 Advantages Of A Content Based Email Marketing Campaign For Internet Marketers

October 26, 2011 Posted by admin

When talking about email marketing, be aware that there are 3 known advantages that can help internet marketers. This article gave me good understanding about email marketing.

 

3 Advantages Of A Content Based Email Marketing Campaign For Internet Marketers

By GT Allen

A content based email marketing campaign is defined as marketing your business strictly through content-rich emails where the email has both content and the promotion of products combined together. Typically, email marketing campaigns are usually one or the other… they either just focus on content or they just focus on selling a product. While that model has worked for a long time, it’s not a sustainable model that keeps everyone happy, and lots of people unsubscribe from lists. Since content based email marketing campaigns combine both elements together, they have tremendous advantages over traditional email campaigns.

1. The campaign promotes topics or subjects, not individuals – The focus of this model is to provide valuable content about a subject in every single email while sprinkling in recommendations for products or services that support the content. The subject can be anything from dating advice, weight loss, dog grooming, making money online, or whatever subject floats your boat. The products can be affiliate products or your own products, as long as the products support the content.

You see, most email marketing campaigns from Internet Marketers revolve around the individual. The emails are filled with information on how ‘they’ did something or how ‘they’ made tons of money. The email campaign usually starts out with great content (as it should) to build relationships, but then at some point the content stops so the marketer can sell some stuff and make some money. There’s nothing wrong with this model, but some people get turned off by this and they leave the list.

2. You don’t need to be an ‘expert’ to brand your business – One of the fears of Internet Marketers is they feel they must be experts before they can teach people something or before they can sell people something. That’s not true at all. Let’s say you have a business teaching people about buying and selling real estate. Now I’m assuming you have knowledge on how to do this and you’ve had some successes on buying and selling real estate. Remember, there are people every day getting into this business who are starting out at day 1.

In your content based emails, you’re giving them tips and techniques that you’ve learned on how to buy and sell real estate properly so they can make money. While you’re teaching them these valuable lessons, if there are products you can sell to further help them along in their learning, that’s perfect, and you don’t have to be an expert to recommend a product or service that you’re most likely already using.

3. You don’t really need a website or your own products, and you can start making money fast – Realistically you can use 100% affiliate products and never create your own product. You can go find 25 affiliate products for your business and promote them many times over throughout the email campaign. The benefit of this is you can start right away. Typical Internet Marketers get bogged down when it comes to creating products or creating websites. This model allows you to start selling immediately and making money right away.

You also don’t need a website because pretty much all email marketing services come with a web form that is live on the Internet, and you can drive traffic to that web form. The people simply opt-in to your list and that’s it. You don’t need a fancy squeeze page or website to host the web form. As you grow your business over time, you’ll probably want your own website, but it’s not necessary for this marketing model.

There are more advantages that come with this model, but these 3 are probably the biggest.
