Driving Traffic to Your Website – Tips and Tricks
Ensuring there is enough traffic of web users visiting your website is more difficult than creating the website itself. But there are some tried and true techniques that you can make use of to drive even greater traffic to your website.
One of the most effective ways to increase traffic to your website is to write good articles and post them on websites that accept such articles. These sites allow you to post articles as well as create a profile. Once your article is published, there will be a link to your website and this helps drive traffic to your website free of charge.
Another effective means to ensure more traffic to your website is being active in the blogosphere. Blog posts allow users to leave comments with links to their websites. This gives you an opportunity to get added advertisement without having to pay a cent. Ensure that you visit blogs that specialize in content related to what your website offers.
Consider writing a free eBook. Summon your writing skills and knowledge to create an informative eBook and post it on your website. The next step in this strategy is to post snippets and reviews of your eBook in as many websites as possible and link them to your website where interested readers can read the rest of the eBook for free.
A great strategy in e-commerce is determining what to sell and what to give for free. Remember that web users will resent you if you charge for every scrap of information. Offering a free eBook will act as a good incentive and enhance the impression that your website is there to offer helpful information to visitors, not make a killing off them.
To be certain of traffic from backlinks, be sure that the ones you are using are the right ones. Some backlinks are no good at all. A good link is known as a “dofollow”. A dofollow link means when you get a visitor who clicked on your link in another webmaster’s site, your search engine ranking improves depending on the link host’s ranking. However, some people optimize their website in a way that gives your site no search engine credibility. Therefore, even though your link is sitting on their web page and getting clicks, your search engine ranking does not improve as a result. To be certain of this, check the html code of such a website and search for the text “no follow”. If there is such, it is no use leaving a link to your site.
