Many webmasters struggle getting traffic to their website. Are you one of them? Well most likely you are if you are reading this article. Pay very careful attention to this article because many people don’t take some of these steps seriously but they can make a big difference.
The first one of all the ways you can get traffic to your website is SEO.
Search Engine Optimization, making your website friendly to search engines so you can rank better and get more visitors to your website. This step is a good step to start with if you know what you are doing. If not, try to read article on SEO and get the concept of it because its all about ranking better in search engines to get more traffic.
Link building is another important point these days.
Google especially gives so much importance to this fact than any other search engine. If you have strong backlinks you are going to be the one that is most likely to be found on google search results.
If you have a marketing website, or your website is about a cause, you can use affiliate programs to gain traffic to your website. For example, you can promote your products on Google AdWords and target specific visitors to your website.
These are all the things a webmaster can do. Well, how about the beginners? Any beginner can do the above. But most of the webmasters forget to the following which a beginner is most likely to do. People miss these ways of getting traffic and they are not aware that they can actually get whole lot of traffic from these ways.
First one of these missed ways is sharing your link in a community website. Either if its Youtube, Myspace or a random Forum website. Many people visits these websites and what you put there. Think of YouTube, you can see how many times a video has been viewed on the bottom of the video, if you share your website link in the description which YouTube allows you to do, you can advertise your website that many views.
Sometimes these views go into millions. Many people go to a froum to find what they want, ask questions and for a community. For example one might go to a Forum website about Hamsters and ask What hamsters eat? You can reply to that post from an article in your website and show your website as a source. Now if someone writes ‘What Hamster’s eat?’ in Google that forum will show up and in the forum your website will be shown source. This ways are also a good way to build backlinks.
Another way professionals often forget is the web directories. They think nobody visits them and so on. But they are mistaken. Many people try to find what exactly they want on the internet and yes they do visit directories. Even if they dont it is a good way to gain backlinks.
