If you’ve got traffic coming to your site, you’re 99% there. The other 1% is what you do with that traffic, but if you have to traffic – you can figure out the rest. What you do with the traffic when it gets to your site could be any number of things. The important thing is getting the traffic and sustaining it.
How, then do you get traffic to your site?
These are the best and fastest ways to get free visitors coming to your site:
- Web 2.0 Sites
- Article Marketing
- Video Marketing
And here’s how to use each method…
Web 2.0 Methods
Web 2.0 is the name given to websites that get their content from their users. These are great sites to work with because they allow you to participate in this content creation. The other interesting thing about these sites is that all the search engines (including Google) treat them as “authority sites”. Which means the content on them gets “indexed” faster and with more weight. So, if you place links to your own site inside your content, you get a search engine ranking benefit from those links. This is the hidden benefit of using Web 2.0 sites. How to generate web 2.0 traffic is something we’ve only scratched the surface on. I don’t want to be exhaustive – I want to give you an overview of all the methods…
Article marketing really builds on the Web 2.0 concept. Article directories fall under the category of web 2.0 sites. Just like web 2.0 sites, article websites allow you to upload your own content – as articles. And because they are also considered authority sites by the search engines you get all the benefits of other web 2.0 sites just by putting your articles on them. And the hidden benefit here is that your reach grows as other people take your articles and put them on their blogs and sites. And in return for getting to use your content, these other users include links back to your website that gives you further search engine ranking and more free traffic. If you want to generate traffic from articles follow these steps:
- Do your keyword research
- Write specifically to target these keywords
- Be sure to link to your site on the keywords you’ve chosen. Do this inside the article itself and in your author’s bio.
And finally, we need to talk about getting traffic from videos. Just like article directories, video sharing sites also rely on user-generated content. And just as article directories give you great SEO benefits and allow others to redistribute your content on their sites. video sharing sites give you all these same benefits. The extra top secret benefit of video marketing is that it’s much easier to rank for competitive keywords than in any other medium.
