5 Creative Traffic Building Ideas
Everyone knows that if you are an affiliate marketer or if you own a website, traffic building is so vital. Without it there would be no business, no income period. One important thing we must know is that when you have a website or a blog you have to do more than just put great content on them. Although quality content is very important, it is only half the battle. Big companies often hirer experts to optimize their websites in order for them to bring visitors to websites and this can get very costly. Also free classified advertising may not always be the best way because you will only get the least amount of views.
In this post I am going to go over some creative traffic building ideas that will help you get visitors to your websites.
Using directories to link build to your websites
This is a very effective way to build backlinks to your websites and blogs. When you add your site to one of these directories, you will get a free backlink to your website. In most cases it is a one way link which is very good for you; and in the long run will increase visitors to websites because these directories are used as much as search engines. You can do a search on the internet for free online directories. I will list a couple of them below so check them out:
Social networking sites are a great way to get backlinks. One thing about these types of sites is friends don’t care to be marketed to. In my opinion, I would use these sites mainly for the purpose of building a backlink. I also recommend that you open an account strictly for business purposes and keep your personal account for friends and family.
Twitter and Linkedin to me are one of the best to use for business purposes. Twitter is becoming more popular everyday and almost all people are using it. When you tweet a message, everyone in your network will receive it instantly. And it has the chance of being indexed in Google.
Visit these sites below and start building links and get visitors to websites.
Now this is a good one. Lots of folks are visual and like to have either pictures or videos to watch. Big companies use commercials to capture our attention. You should do the same, but with video sharing sites. When you post a video, it tends to get indexed quicker than an article or content on a site. Videos also receive traffic quicker for a more enhanced chance for your website to get seen.
Youtube, one of the most popular sites around, is a great place to start. You can fill out the profile with information about your site or blog, and in the description of your video you can use keywords with a well written description and add your url. Others will write comments to your videos and my type in keywords in their comments that can make your video skyrocket in search engines, thus bringing more visitors to websites. The best part about sharing a video is that it’s free.
Here is a very brilliant idea most people don't think about to get visitors to websites and increase rankings; put high power website links in your websites and blogs that dominate the web. What do I mean, sites that have authority. When you do this, you get traffic, and your site is seen by search engines as trustworthy or important. Make sure the link is relevant to the content or that it links to a story on the site your viewers would be interested in. This is what you want and this is how you get your web site on Google, Yahoo, and Bing. I will give you a few examples of sites below:
Use A Thesaurus To Aid In Creating Unique Valuable Content
Lastly you want to be unique and add value. You do this by offering very high quality content to your viewers. I said this before and will say it again; high quality content will help you get visitors to websites. This is so important, and as I said in the beginning of this post it’s only half the battle, but it is important because duplicate content will not get indexed by Google or any other search engines. If you are saying the same thing as everyone else, you won’t get found. When you don’t take the time and find something new to say, website visitors want stay on your page. There is no short cut to this.
I am going to give you a very useful strategy that will help you create unique content that will get visitors to websites. Use a thesaurus. This is the most effective way to use words that others may not use. I sometimes do this myself. If you always use simple words, which is the same thing other people use, it will not really be unique. You need to talk in your own words, but a thesaurus will greatly help you. Most people are lazy and will not use a thesaurus, so this will be to your advantage. At the end of the day, you get picked up by search engines, visitors to websites, important high ranking sites linking to you, and more affiliate income or sale increases. You don’t need an expensive, high priced expert to accomplish these simple tasks. You need patience, time, and the will to put in some work to increase visitors to websites.
