Traffic is King, but this comes FIRST

The best way to ensure your success is to build automated traffic sources to send you visitors day and night.

But, first...

Before you begin trying to get traffic to your site, you need to do your keyword research first. Why? Because you have to target these keywords if you are to have any hope of actually generating traffic for them. So you need to make sure the keywords you're targeting are worth targeting.

Here are some important keyword research tips:

  • Will you be able to rank for these keywords? Take a look at the "strength" of others websites (and how many) are already targeting these keywords.
  • Will the keywords you're targeting bring buyers? Some keywords will bring lots of traffic, but none of them will buy. What you want is buyers!
  • Will these keywords bring affiliates? If you want to build a huge business, you're going to need affiliates to help you. This means that some of your traffic focus should be on getting affiliates to your site.

Of course, this all takes time if you plan to do it yourself. And hiring an expert is very expensive. Which is why practically none of your competitors will do this! If you're smart you will use website traffic software to help you with this process. This way you get this critical step done fast and done well.

Only then can you start getting traffic

Once you've done your properly keyword research, you're now ready to start targeting these keywords to draw in visitors.

Here's a short list of sneaky traffic techniques:

  • Surveys
  • "Traffic Traps"
  • Video Sharing Sites

Surveys

People love filling in surveys. You can use this fact to provide "sticky" content for other website owners. And when they put your survey on their site, they will include a link back to your website. Think about that - you get website traffic for free just for making a survey! Most people think surveys are just for collecting data, but in this case you don't even care about the answers. Just make the question interesting enough that people will want to share it with their own visitors.

"Help" Websites

Sites like Yahoo! Answers allow users to ask and answer each others' questions. However, you're interest in these sites is not to ask and answer questions. The other thing they can be used for is to get traffic to your site, leads for your business and sales! Now, you can do this all by hand - visit a classified ads or answers site and one by one copy and paste contact info. The good news is that it's easy to find website traffic software that can do this automatically. Then you just get a daily batch of fresh leads delivered to your inbox.

Video Sharing Sites

No doubt you're aware of YouTube and other video websites. YouTube is one of the most highly traffic and search websites on the entire internet! So don't miss out of this incredible source of free website traffic.

Even if you don't think you can make a good video. It's really easy to just start with an article or something you've already written. Then just do a screen capture of yourself going through it. And like anything else, there is software available that will turn articles into videos for you automatically.

In Closing

It's not that hard to get traffic to your websites. Use your noodle and come up with things other people aren't doing. You can even use software to automate most of what we've talked about.

Get started right away:

  • Do your keyword research
  • Next, set up a survey or two with viral appeal
  • Make sure to use the "answer" sites
  • And don't forget about video
