Easy Ways To Promote Your Website - How to Get traffic to my site 60DC

Make your traffic explode

How to get traffic to my site

The Basics:

   Promotion and link building has two quite disparate purposes, the most perfect goal is to gain dofollow backlinks on sites that Google regularly indexes and assesses a high authority or respect, one metric for this is PR or PageRank – which will in turn be passed to you via “google juice' or 'link juice”. Google assesses these links as votes. Having a good supply of these “votes” telling google that your articles are worth checking out leads to higher results when searchers type your target phrases into a search engine.

Of course, this weird system of “backlinking” isnt what google intended to be the measurement of a good site – SEO professionals just figured some of the obvious factors that are considered by google and many other Search Engines for their ranking system.

You see naturally when someone, webmaster or searcher aside visits a page their must be some way to judge how well that search went over – one major indicator at this point of the search engine battle is backlinks, how many, how good and how well are they anchored.If a viewer thinks your content is worth sharing ..than there must be something good about it right?

Now if your writing for some high profile news site or the latest online meme site, than perhaps your traffic is just going to show up and see how great you are and start sharing it with the world as you wish they would. But in this big desert of the net some initial promotion has to be done just to get your site in front of those important viewers.

Not all net traffic is savvy enough, those that can be expected to share at social sites and link on their websites isnt likely to be a buying crowd but they have value nonetheless. Seth Grodin, creator of Squidoo and well respected marketing guru has a term to describe these types in the offline world. He calls them "sneezers", the type of person who has the authority and interaction necessary to create a "buzz" about an idea or product. It i intended to describe offline "word of mouth" marketing but correlations can be made.

Those looking for long term success in the internet marketing and promotion fields would do well to look into his theories.

Just to be clear - Easy ways to promote your site

I mentioned two "disparate" purposes and intentions in site promotion.

  • Gain dofollow backlinks that Search engines will use to measure your authority
  • Get your page in front of peoples eyes

If you are looking for buyers and money traffic, search engine traffic is just about all you should care about. But, if it can be done easy enough it is worth broadcasting your links around in hopes of gaining a few natural backlinks. Big influxes of traffic from untargetted sources actually tnd to hurt your earnings..weird but true.

Easy ways to promote your site

Comment Posting

Those familiar with Hubpages are well accustomed to comment posting. But, they are probably not intentionally doing such for a backlink. Of course, every comment is a backlink back to the Hubbers profile and has effects on HubScore. Well, who cares!

Whether your writing a hubpage, a blog post or a page on your website, you are probably going to do a little research. While running around on the net, why not develop some backlinks?

The moment your hub, blog post or article is selected, you have a URL. It doesnt matter whether its published yet! Keep the URL in your clipboard or in a notepad and as you read, make some comments, use your keywords as your name and fill in your new URL as your site.

Using a plugin that shows dofollow links is helpful but not necessary. This method not only creates backlinks but also can lead to targeted traffic who are savvy enough to click on your linked name. By writing a useful, informative comment you are more likely to attract clickthroughs. A good informative comment is more likely to stick, but truthfully vanity comments about how great the writer is also tends to stick also.

This method is listed first as you can do it before your content is even live and can be naturally included into your research process.

Forum Posting - Easy Ways to get traffic

Forum posting can be very effective for both of the intended aspects of promotion; valid backlinks and getting your links in front of targeted viewers.

Forums exist for every topic imaginable, if you write in a specific topic you can quickly prove your knowledge on your downtime from writing while learning and interacting in the forums. You will usually have the option of including a few links in your signature and many forums have a profile page for each member that can also be used for links. You will gain backlinks - usually dofollow with every post. When relevant you can pass your links on in conversation also.

I dont suggest "spamming" any forums. Most forums have either protective members or active moderators, its best to just find some relevant forums where you can be a productive addition and create a symbiotic relationship.

Social Bookmarking and Adsense Revenue Sites

Social Bookmarking is double edged. If your submission receives some votes, thumbs up, those type of things... it may turn up as a front page(google) link! But if it gets too popular you may get big influxes of traffic that dont convert for your advertisers which may result in decreased epc's for you!

So manually submitting your sites to social bookmark sites? Nah, to time intensive for rather low value links, but if you can automate the process it can be worthwhile. is a good resource for submitting your content to dozens of sites in a quick way. You still have to go through an arduous sign up process though. Getting an autofill plugin like LastPass or RoboFill can make your life easier.

Adsense Revenue Sharing Sites

There are a lot of Adsense Revenue Sharing Social bookmarking sites springing up. Most work by allowing you to create a summary and title for each of your submissions, set a few keywords and publish. A small caveat is that it is very possible that use of the same adsense id at your backlinks may lead to less importance being given by Google. These sites can often be used to experiment with new keyword combination and test niche ideas.For those participating in the 60DC Group promotion can lessen that possibility, see private forums for details

Web 2.0 - Article Writing

Many web publishers first discover Hubpages as a great place to get high quality backinks to their websites and blogs. Sites such as HubPages, Infobarrels and Squidoo(?) tend to do well in the search engines due to editorial and submision constraints and a well planned site structure.

I take advantage of all these sites and create wheels of interlinked related content. Its much better to write 30 properly interlinked articles across 3 unique domains than it would be to write 30 at one site - (like Hubpages)

Two techniques for using and writing across multiple writing sites:

After creating new articles at each site you should also run these "spokes" through your promotion process.

Micro-Blogging - Blog F@rming - for easy backlinks

If you have ever wrote a hubpage then you can easily build a blog. I can create 3 Blogspot or sites in the time the average Hubpage takes me.

Creating small niche sites that are heavily keyword targetted and link back to your hubs or other sites are incredibly powerful tools. Some top choices would be, and These sites would be used just for links! so dont be overly concerned about appearance or general quality. Just get those links out there! Over time you can clean these sites up, add some unique content, photos, videos etc. as you would a hubpage and use them to apply to many affiliate programs. (Not necessary, but is a logical next step)

These "farms" can prove very valuable in the long run and are quite heavily suggested by some real power hitters in the "make money" world.

Its also good experience for when you start to develop some real quality sites with your own hosting and domains.

RSS Feed Submissions and distributions

RSS = Real Simple Syndication, and the name rings true. Using feeds to quickly broadcast your content and automate the publishing process is an easy way to spread your links around.

Article Marketing and Press Releases

I outsource my article marketing and they use a spinner to create the variants used for each submission. Its a powerful technique but can be rather time intensive and I never understood the software properly.

My choice for an article spinner: The Best Spinner , write quality content for money! but dont be so foolish as to think that the content you share just for backlinks has to follow the same guidelines. Take a peek at any article directory and evaluate whether you want to write new content for their benefit.

I was surprised at the difficulty I had in finding a worthwhile recommendation for further reading in this field. I selected Lissies as she is a successful web producer and opened with a great intro into the whys of Article marketing. But as the article is 2 years old the suggested software AMA does not get my vote. She points out the distinction in high quality article sites like eZine, which are worth writing some custom quality content for and other spam filled wastelands that are best used in conjunction with spinners and automated submission services. Ill follow up with current info into my suggestions for submission software and sites after I converse with my outsourcer so I can better explain.
