This is because they get very few, if any, targeted visitors. For these website owners, there are simple techniques they can use to increase website traffic.
Read on and I will give you five ways to increase website traffic to your website. These aren't hidden secrets and they won't give you millions of hits per month for just $ 9.99. (I'm sure you know what I mean). However they are effective and using them will increase website traffic to your website. And the visitors that you get will be more profitable because they will be targeted.
Increase Website Traffic
You can pay to increase website traffic. (I've decided to get the money spending out of the way first). There are many ways you can pay to increase website traffic; here are three (3) popular ones.
Before you use any of these paying methods to increase website traffic to your website, I want you to first examine your website with your ideal customer in mind. What keywords will they use to find your website in the search engines? Write them down.
Increase Website Traffic - technique 1
Now you're ready to increase website traffic with pay-per-click search engines. Start by using the keywords you have written down, go to the free keyword suggestion tool at digitalpoint.com and type in the search box one keyword at a time and press the 'suggest' button.
The results will show you how many people search for your keyword each day and also suggests other keywords you can use and the number of visits they get each day. Write down this information or create a spreadsheet with the headings 'keyword', 'visits per day', and 'pay-per-click cost'. Your pay per click cost depends on which pay-per-click search engine you use, the competition for your keywords and on how much you're willing to pay for a click.
Once you've finished the spreadsheet, sign up for an account with the pay-per-click-search engine of your choice and bid on your keywords.
You will notice that the keywords with the most visits per day cost more per click than those with less. To get more clicks for your money the trick is to bid on those keywords with have a few visitors a day. There is less competition for these keywords so your bid price should be low.
Increase Website Traffic - technique 2
When using ezine ads place them in ezines which are related to your market, which have subscribers who would be interested in your product or service. You can find ezines in ezine directories and you should be subscribed to a few of them already, start with these.
Increase Website Traffic - technique 3
For website ads, use the keyword list you made for your pay-per-click marketing. Starting with the keyword that gets the most visits per day, do a search at a search engine. Research the first ten (10) to twenty (20) websites looking for any information which indicates that they sell advertising space on their website, like 'Advertise With Us'. If you don't see any advertising information look for a 'Contact' page or email address and send a message asking if advertising is sold on their website and if so then what's the cost. Once you've finished this research, choose where to place your ads.
