8 Ways How I got a Lot of Traffic Quickly to My Website- You Can Too :)

I am going to put these in order of importance so the first item is the most powerful and make sure you pay attention to the first thing.

1.Relevant Content – Your website must offer fresh relevant targeted content updated regularly to get high page rank and high traffic statistics. Because people and search engines are not stupid, generally. They are not going to waste their time on a website that was put together quickly, poorly and or just for the sake of someone selling a product or trying to get them to click your ads. (Unless you are just a store) However even if you are a web store I would still put content on your website to get readers to your site. If you have an interesting web site people will come and visit. You must write articles or have others write articles for you. You can approach people in your niche to be a guest writer on your blog or website. Or you can sign up for a free service that will deliver targeted articles to your email box and you can post them all you have to do is make sure you include the link to the authors website. The place I go to get my articles isArticle Marketer

2.Getting Your Articles on Other Websites-- This is called link building it can be done in several ways. I will cover a few here that I did. You can post to blogs or forums making sure you always leave your web address, this works well and I have a steady stream of visitors coming from these links and have built several back links from this strategy. The downside is it takes time. You can also submit your site to niche directories. This has not worked well for me and I don't do this at all anymore, I spend my time activities that produce the best results. There are also websites out there that will submit your articles for you and that will produce a link to your site for each article submitted. I use a free service called Article Marketer for this. They will distribute your article for free to over 50 websites and you can submit many articles. They have a paid service that if you upgrade you can submit to over 3000 websites. However, I just use the free one, because right now I am using a free web provider synthesize, free email and free everything, until my website makes money to pay for stuff then I will upgrade. As of right now with the traffic my free site is bringing I should be upgrading soon.

3.Getting Articles on Other Website (continued)-- This is the same topic different method. I visited the top websites in my niche which is the Forex Market my site is Winners Edge Trading So I visited the top sites and I was able to get my articles published on two of those sites. One of these sites is called Forex FactoryThese are the top sites in my niche and now whenever I write an article they get published on these top sites. That brings me an increaseof traffic because of the links from high quality traffic sites. I was only able to get those links because I followed rule #1 great content. Plus, I was a little lucky. So now I am approaching a 3rd site and am attempting to get published with them as well.

4.Put Descriptions for your images-- in synthasite you can edit the properties of you image and you can put a description for that image. People search for images often and so if you have a description of your image people searching for that image come to your page. I get many hits from image searching.

5.Publish a newsletter—Put a sign up form on your website for a newsletter so that visitors who are interested in your relevant content they will be able to get information sent to them from you. Which you can use to bring them back to your site over and over. You can use a mailing service for this there is a free one called Mail Chimp or you can use a better one with more features that gives you a 15 day free trial and after that $9.99 a month called I Contact. A good way to get people to sign up is to give away a free ebook or other item.

6.Put the Right Key Words in Your Articles and On Your Website—If you want traffic from search engines find the keywords for your topic and put them in your site and in your properties section of your synthasite editor.

7.Write Creative Titles For Each Page-- Good titles and page descriptions will attract the search engines and people will click on them if they are interesting. Google hates the same title for each page on your website.

8.Write a Press Release Announcement-- You can do this and submit your press release and get some free exposure for your website. There are paid for press releases and free press releases, A good free one that I use is PR Log

There are many other ways so If anyone has anything they would like to add please help us by sharing those here.

One more Thing :)

I wanted to mention persistance. If you continue to take small steps in improving your website. For Example I know we are all busy people but if we take the time to do one small improvement everyday. Over time that will add up to a great website.

Just make sure that you are finding a way to improve your content or improve your link building and do one thing everyday and in the end you will reap big benefits

We are people of habits and if we make it a habit of finding something to improve on an doing it, it will become a habit and not seem like such a chore.

I find my self discipline is terrible but once I turn something into a habit, my self discipline becomes great.

If any one Else has any feed back I would greatly appreciate it :)

Another Tip to add. You can post an ad on craigslist for the service that your website provides I do this and get some traffic from that. Remember though no spamming post a real ad, in the category to actually benefit people. It is amazing that if you make something that people will be able to use and enjoy they will come.

Great ideas Casey! Like you, I'm using everything free, for now.

Right now my site is more of a "Show and Tell", but as soon as I can, I would like to turn it into an online store, so I will need a lot of traffic.

I'm gonna go and check the links that you posted. Keep up the good work!

One sure way to get lots of traffic is have a niche website. Targeting something specific gives people with that interest a reason to visit your site and if you add content regularly they will come back. Here are some ideas: a news site, automotive, web publishing, fishing, cooking, golfing, your favorite hobby, games or Even a special site directed specifically at synthasite users.

I have a very specific niche Forex Currency Trading, Most people besides synthasiters are currency traders which is exactly the traffic I am looking for.

Monique,
I've been adding a few more SynthaSites to my site today, and I've changed my
home page a bit. Maybe you can help?

I'm missing some "past" featured sites! Do you perhaps have a list?

Can you check to see if the ones I've got there are correct
and which ones I'm missing? Do you have CDE's URL?

Boomer I just got an idea for your site. you could have page with all the top synthasite web pages traffic ratings. You could use the alexa rankings to get your stats. I don't have any idea how you would do it but you could do. It would bring alot of traffic because the synthasiters would want to add their site to that. Here is an example in my niche http://www.forexontop.com/ I don't know maybe its a bad idea or maybe it's to much work. Let me know what you think?

I would like to expand on keywords by saying that another little trick is when you create a page on Synthasite you are creating and naming your URL...I put some of my key words that relate to that page in the name.Now they are part of my URL.That is why I keep pages out of the nav bar and made my own menu.

I have been working hard at producing more traffic. It has been working the biggest thing is writing articles I write one or two a day. Plus the fact that more and more sites are using my articles.

Here is a screen shot of my traffic stats

I have a new traffic generating tip, that is to produce your own videos and put them on you tube. That brings traffic from you tube to your site. I started this recently and I have noticed even more traffic. So to increase traffic add content by writing articles and by video.

Check out my new video here http://www.winnersedgetrading.com/cha...

Hey good to see you...Been awhile....I did this also using movie maker to make my own commercial....However I added it to a few other places you might want to consider. MSN has Soapbox,Yahoo Videos and Google Videos...Make sure you put in your link information...So far from Yahoo Video I have 20 links pointing to my home page that are showing on my Google external link checker.

You might do well having a presence on linkedin.com also....It is a little more on the business side of things and would fit your target group very well....If you have a Word Press blog you can tie it in at linkedin and it will show on your linkedin pages....Maybe you are already there but thought I would mention it just in case you were not.

Also John since you mention Linkedin I will mention social networking sites in general to bring in a great deal of traffic. I am using facebook and twitter along with linked in. So far twitter has brought me the most visitors.

Another way to get free traffic is to answer questions that relate to your niche/site content on Yahoo Answers. You can provide links to your site as part of your answer.

Here are my words.
Use facebook, and twitter to promote your website.
I personally think twitter is the most clever role in keeping people with us, for ever.
When someone join my site, I post a tweet like @username1 , welcome to #mysite!

The visitor username1 gets suprised when he get this DM to him, from mysite.
It also has a fair influence to SEO, because Google treats twitter in a special way.

The second point is 'do not advertise everytime!'

do not bother your fans/followers/subscribers/authenticated by tweeting/updating status/spamming , etc
if you have a facebook Group , do not send mass messages everytime. Most members didnt know why/when they join to the group:)

keeping your domain in the whitelist is a major thing to do.
I personaly know how addme and ientry send junk emails. The 4 major email providers has banned them in their spam filters. Do not try to add yours.

Everyone here talks about getting visitors. But remember, keeping visitors must be what I need to do.
I had a site with a free .tk domain and I got nearly 30k people to my site. But .tk registrar claimed back their domain (to put their ads. Its a scam, do not use it) , then I got hundreds of e-mails from that site's RSS feed subscribers.

I already has a mass list of those senders email addresses. I didnt e-mail them everytime.
I'm not creating my second project and I'm sure, everyone will start using and loving my new web site.

Good luck friends!

Hi Keara,
actually I mentioned not-in-blacklists.

Whitelist domains are domains that kept in contacts list.

For an example, open a random spam email in your spam box and add sender to contacts.
When you recieve their second spam email, it will go to inbox.

WOW ! I am so grateful to have stumbled onto this one, especially those tips about using ArticleMaker- that sounds wonderful to someone who en-joys writing- yet is n incredibly slow typer, so that alone WILL help tremendously- now if only I can soon master doing links. I am confident, that I will. It's like u said, everyday- try to make it just a little better, when time allows. Thanks so much for sharing that with us all !
