Hi Prageeth,

If you haven't already, then I would suggest trying out the following:

**Submitting Articles to Article Directories:**
There are many article directories on the Internet that accept unpaid submissions of articles for inclusion in their article database. What you can do is write informative articles about your niche area, submit them to these article directories, and place an Author Bio at the end with a link back to your website. When you submit your articles to an article directory you give other people permission to reprint your article in their Internet publications such as websites, newsletters, blogs etc. as long as the Author Bio is included along with the links back to your website. As people begin to read your articles and reprint them, you will begin to not only get links back to your site, but visitors as well. Here are a few good article directories to get you started: ideamarketers.com., ezinearticles.com. and articlealley.com.

**Social Networking:**
Social networking sites include sites such as myspace.com, facebook.com and youtube.com, and that is just scratching the surface. This strategy for increasing traffic to your website can be time consuming, as the idea is to basically get "social" with other people using these sites; but the benefits to your website in terms of traffic and links can be outstanding, but staying engaged is a key factor.

**Twitter:**
Another great way to promote your site and any updates you make is through Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, you can easily Tweet any changes or updates you make when you publish! For more information on this please see this thread in our forum: Twitter Button - Tweet your new site or your latest changes!

If you don't have a Twitter account and would like to get one to make use of this promotion tool, please go to Twitter.com and sign up for a Free account!

**Offline Marketing:**
Don't forget to add your website to your business cards, brochures and print media advertising.

Strategies which will increase traffic to your website will also play into your ranking in the search engines; it's a great cycle to get your website into... more traffic = better rankings and better rankings = more traffic!

Hi there Prageeth,

SEO is Search Engine Optimization where you optimize your site for Search Engines so that when people search for particular terms or words they see your site in the listings.

SMO is Social Media Optimization. SMO is all about driving traffic from sources that aren't search engines. You generally do this by linking to sites, utilizing your community and encouraging people to share your work.

You can have a strategy for both and do both at the same time but you need to take a look at your network of friends and users and see which would be most beneficial to your site - trying to find people via search or trying to find people via your network - it is really up to you and you can do both simultaneously.

If you don't have such an extensive network then probably try SEO but if you have a wide, engaged network of friends and colleagues, try SMO... and remember you can do both.

I hope this helps.

Is it possible to Get More Traffic to My Site Using Google Images

Hi there Prageeth,

Yes, you can use Google Images - it is pretty much an image search tool that indexes relevant images.

Remember - search engines cannot "see" graphics, they read text. You can help the search engines "see" the topic of your graphics by giving them something called an "alternate attribute" or "alternate text".

To give your image alternate text in Yola you can:

1. Click on the image.
2. Click on the Properties tab on the Sidebar to the right of your screen.
3. Scroll down to the "Alternative Text" field.
4. Enter text to describe your image including your keyword possibly.
5. Click Apply.

I hope this helps.
