Top 10 Sources To Increase Web Site Traffic For Free
Copyright © 2007 Titus Hoskins
Experienced webmasters know there are special sources
or places on the web which will send massive amounts
of free traffic to your site. They also know, if harnessed
properly, these mega traffic sites will supply any
web site with a steady stream of visitors.
Perhaps the best source of web site traffic is Google.
That's not exactly a Newsflash, but the key to getting
massive amounts of traffic from Google is to go wide and
long. With this strategy, instead of targeting highly
popular keywords which may be too competitive for your
site to win, you create a whole multitude of lesser known
long tail keyword phrases to bring in the traffic.
Use Long Tail Keywords
This traffic takes longer to build but because very few
webmasters bother with these longer phrases, your keywords
will be more stable and secure. Develop a whole list of
these traffic generating keyword phrases and Google will
reward you with a whole flood of targeted visitors stemming
from these thousands of small dribbles of long tail keyword
Turning these dribbles of free traffic into massive amounts is
not a difficult task, one very effective way to tap into the
entire search engine source of traffic is to tag everything.
Tags are just another name for keywords. As Web 2.0 or
Social Bookmarking sites become more and more popular,
tagging will become extremely important.
You must be especially careful of how you tag the content
on your site or sites. If you're using a blogging system
like WordPress, all your categories will be considered
tags automatically. If you're creating URLs, be careful
to place your keyword phrase in your links.
Use Blogging Systems Like WordPress
Another effective way to tap into the whole keyword traffic
system is to include your keyword phrase or variations of
it in your articles while promoting your site. Place your
anchor text in your links in the resource box at the end
of each article.
Over time, as these articles become distributed all over
the web, they will create a steady stream of targeted
visitors to your site. Simple, effective and very powerful.
You are probably tired of hearing about Web 2.0 and the
new Social Bookmarking sites but they are some of the best
places for massive traffic on the web. Any webmaster who
has been Slashdotted already knows this fact all too well;
if you get a listing on the homepage of Slashdot.com you
will immediately start receiving thousands of visitors to
your site. It can be somewhat scary.
Use Article Marketing
A similar experience is getting one of your articles
published in ezines run by Addme.com, SiteProNews.com,
WebProNews.com, as well as others. These ezines go out
to hundreds of thousands of readers and can produce
massive free traffic back to your site.
However, much of this sudden traffic is only temporary
and most savvy webmasters know it would be wise to try and
capture the contact information of these temporary visitors
for follow-up targeting. Turn that temporary visitor into
a patron of your site by offering a free ecourse or an email
Use Follow-up Marketing
The same marketing technique should be applied to traffic
coming from all these social media sites. Don't think of your
traffic as just numbers in your website's stats, but rather
as potential customers who will return to your site again
Make Web 2.0 Your Special Friend!
Keep this strategy in mind as you target some of these
Top Sources of massive traffic on the web:
You should be actively promoting these social bookmarking
sites by allowing your visitors to easily bookmark your
content. You should be creating your own content on sites
like Squidoo and placing links back to your site.
Use Press Releases
Of course, there are countless other sources of massive
traffic on the web. Press releases is another effective
way of quickly drawing in massive traffic to your site.
Sites like PRWeb can deliver targeted traffic very quickly
Use Yahoo! Answers
Another very effective and high converting venue you should
try is Yahoo! Answers, a simple process where users post
a question and other members/experts offer answers. Used
correctly this can be a good source of targeted traffic.
Use MSN Live Search
Don't forget other important search engines such as MSN Live,
traffic from MSN has earned a solid reputation for converting
very well. So optimize your web pages for MSN Live search and you
will probably see an increase in your sales as well as your traffic.
Always Use Quality Content
Always keep in mind, the underlying key factor running
through all these sources of massive traffic is unique
quality content. You must create good original content
on your sites as well as in your articles and posts. Your
content must be informative, useful or entertaining. For
in the end, it is this quality content that will create the
interest, the links and the massive traffic to your site.
Don't ignore this factor or your quest for massive free
web site traffic will be extremely difficult, if not
impossible to achieve.
