      I would try purchasing traffic but not through ads etc. because that can be expensive. You need targeted traffic not just any old traffic and some of the companies that you pay are good - otherwise get a guru to tell you their secrets... Forums etc work - there's some good info re: twitter and getting tons of followers out there...I cant remember the name of the company that you can purchase traffic from - pretty cheap - something to do with grass - can anyone help me out here?

      Manuwan, you're taking completely the wrong approach. You need to be doing things differently, and not wasting your money on search marketing and adwords.  I'm a fellow Aussie and a facilities manager so I can give you relevant advice, but I'd also recommend you contact Eric Graudins, and/or consider buying his book.  He's based in Tasmania and specialises in helping small business.  You'll find links to his website etc here:

      I know that the advise that you gotten has been given with good intention but they will not solve your main problem. After taking a look at your site, I have noticed that the code on your site is not Google friendly. The pages are mostly dynamically generated PHP pages, you can tell that this is the case because all your URL's contain the .php

      Also, if you look at your code in the browser you'll notice that much of the key words and content that appears on the page is not really being picked up by google. This again is because your pages are being dynamically generated - in essence this means that the content is being pulled from outside your page (a database) and there fore google will never really be able to index the content.  Your web site should be generating page with the .html tag to make them google friendly.

      You also have links that do not go anywhere etc. I would first focus on fixing your site before I spend any additional money on online marketing. You will spend thousands and get nowhere if your website continues to have these fundamental problems.

      Let me know if you need more advice, I have been dong Internet Marketing for over 10 years.

        Manuwan, hope you're still around to read this.  I also emailed you to tell you your website is your main problem - it really does need a total revamp.

        php is read by google as content. dynamically generated sites are read and indexed by google. there is no difference between html, asp or php in the eyes of google.

        There are other problems with the site, ie. tables and javascript, that need work but php is not one of them.

        Don't worry about PHP generated content that's all a load of BS.  I use Joomla which is great for content management.  Do you have a CMS yourself?  If not getting one would get rid of a lot of your headaches.  In fact I would say it is ideal unless you are a web guru yourself.

        That would fix a lot of your problems I think.  While I said that I personally love Joomla, more people seem to swear by Drupal for some reason.  In the end, I don't think it really matters.  They are all very valuable and Search Engine Friendly.  Some people like promotional-guy don't like the default urls but they will always get indexed as long as you play by the rules.  Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

        Frankly, I just went through your site and think the layout etc. is great.  Of course, if you told us what terms you are trying to rank for we could give you some feedback on how you are doing with your SERPs.

        Good luck!

      hi manuwan!!!!
      Several factors will contribute to the Success of your Internet business.
      1)Market:Do you have a huge market for the Product or Service you are promoting? little or no market will not generate much traffic,no matter how much money you spend in Adwords...
      2)How is your website designed? when visitors click your site,you only have between 10 to 15 second to catch their attention.
      3)Copywriting:many internet experts said that copywriting is KING because it will motivate visitors to action.
      4)Promotion:In order to generate thousands of visitors,you must master the S.E.O which stands for Search Engine Optimization.In short,you must study KEYWORDS that you submit to search engine in order to generate traffic.
      If you are serious about running a business online,I urge you to read my FREE ebook about the Internet Business.Please send a request via my email and I will send it to you.
      Take care

      hi, there are many ways to drive traffic. I just wrote an article but how to generate leads through the internet.

      However website conversion is simply more than driving traffic, you also need to evaluate your website offer.

      Hence this is the process to convert leads.

      Drive suitable traffic --> Great offer on your website --> capture database --> continued communication and building relationship

      Here is the blog posting introducing the various places to drive traffic.

      http://www.pamelinasiow.com/blog/how-to … -internet/

      I also recommended getting my report as I provide a step by step guide on how to convert traffic into leads on your website.

      Good luck!

      It doesn't matter what method you use to get traffic as long as you get a ROI (return on investment).  As long as you spend less on advertising than the money you make (minus all other overheads too) then you're onto a winner.

      Take a look at my hub page that tells you how to "not" make money online.  It's tongue in cheek, so be warned!

      Most of the time, it's no that there is no traffic. Very often you have to wait for  sometime before traffic start coming in. But you can also try programs that will help you call up your visitor as soon as they op-in your website. Normally the outcome is good but not cheap so product must be high in profit...

      Most important thing to realize is that its not about the amounts of traffic you receive, working on converting the traffic you DO get into paying customers is a bigger income producing activity to focus on. ( You might want to add some Marketing elements, and re-arrange your calls to action a bit more).

      Since you are interested in Traffic generation ( as are most individuals ) I will be releasing a new article specifically to focus on solutions to that problem. It will be up by the end of the upcoming week. Follow me on here if you would like and look out for it, I am sure it will provide great value to you.

      Using adwords is playing the big boys game. Are you thoroughly educated on how to use adwords? If not, then you will want to invest in some education.

      I recommend that you start off with building an online presence--- attracting FREE traffic to your website. You can do this through article marketing, social networks, and forums.

    I am not sure spending a ton of good money using online ads is a good way to drive traffic. First, do you want to spend money just for traffic? If you have a product to sell, okay; go for it.

    Second, there are lots of good hubs on the subject, including: linking, backlinks, StumbleUpon, keyword optimization, and so forth.

    Good luck.

    Try partnering with local Realtors, trade links, offer discount coupons to their clients through their databases.  Realtors are always looking for ways to stay in touch with past clients.  Make sure your web address is on all marketing material.  Use Craigsl list to promote your services as well.

    Joe, you'll probably find your links will be snipped, so I jumped in and checked.

    I have bad news for you.

    My company's fire wall completely blocks your whole front page - which probably means it's all advertising and no content. What does that mean?  It means you're missing out on the readership of all those thousands of people who surf the net behind a corporate firewall.  so I'd sack your "legitimate company", if I were you.

    I agree with the posts here that there is a lot of information on the internet for strategies to drive traffic to your site. It can be overwhelming.

    The information I have located on hubpages, is valuable, relevant, well set out and eliminates or explains jargon. Do a search and you'll find many great hubs. I was reading one on links the other day, and it was superb. Good quality relevant (contextual) backlinks from aged/authoritative sources. However even though I didn't need to know the different types of links on the internet I loved the way the author set them out and defined them. It has a psychological effect on you, as you know that a really good author's intent isn't to confront you with information that will confuse, rather to illuminate.

    I don't know whether this is out of order but I required a step by step approach, and I have never spent a lot of money on courses.

    However, after a lot of thought and consideration, I joined The Keyword Academy. I am so glad I did. The forums are fantastic for support. The people behind it are ethical and provide a lot of value for money.

    Try targeting regions, demographics with PPC, use local search an add your business. You can find sites like citysearch and others that will rank your biz based on location. this works well with companies who offer services in areas.

    I have also found if you find the top 5 companies who offer the service and bid on their name you can harness traffic... if your company is lower in cost, or offer more services.

    Also try the same approach with your PPC, the clicks might be less but someone who types in cleaning services in atlanta ga, is better then just cleaning services. Local search can be a very daunting task, as everyone who offers a biz wants those rankings.

    Also submit articles, press releases and content to various related sites, use keyword text and anchor links. Help build backlinks to your main site, getting you listed for your targeted keywords.

    Hope this helps.

    There is some great information on these pages and I would add one more thing to this,  there is a supply and demand aspect to keywords.  Your website competes against other websites for traffic. 

    Take the advice about optimizing your page for google.  Once you do that you need to look at the demand for the keywords you are using.  So as not to violate forum rules, I won't post links but Google the terms "keyword demand" and "keyword supply"  There you will see ways to discover keywords with high demand and low supply.  Once you find these types of keywords, you will rank quickly for those keywords that will bring you the targeted traffic you want.

    While we're on the subject of traffic, does anyone know if it still takes up to a month for Google crawlers to go through your hubs? I finally did some research on SEO and edited a couple of mine with some phrases that should work out really well. Just curious how long it may take to see any results.

    But what about placing at the top of Google searches?

  17. Ivorwen profile image67
    Ivorwenposted 12 years ago

    Placing at the top of google searches has many factors.  It involves delivering the information people are searching for, backlinks use of keywords and other things that only Google knows. 

    My articles that are at the top of the search are ones where I knew exactly what key words I wanted to be found by and wrote accordingly.  I was in the number one spot within a week, and have stayed there 90% of the time.  These articles are written to serve the reader.  They do their job, and earn moderately.

    I have other articles that are slowly rising, as I do more key word research and backlink.  Some of my articles have so much competition from major sources, that I will probably never see the front page.  Oh well.  Live and learn.  Keep experimenting.

    Sunforged has suggested aiming to place at the top of key words that do not have tons of competition, such as something fairly general, but aim the adds at related key words which pay well.

    Easy - First of all write and submit 10 articles to ezines. Use the author box to back link to your site. Also comment on as many blogs as you can per day , and join up to online forums such as digital point. At the end of 2 months, your traffic will have increased, and you should have site ranking with google smile

    What works for my blog is to submit articles to ezinearticles.com They are a bit strict with their standards but they also offer training. However, with proper keyword research and good titles, you will see traffic to your site withing a few days. I recently submitted an article and got 27 views within a day and that included about 4 links to my blog. It works.

    I think the point people are missing is that Manuwan isn't trying to make money from his website.  He has a real-world business (cleaning commercial premises) and he's complaining because he thought his website would generate more enquiries.

    I just checked and he has improved the layout of the website substantially - however the English is still poor and punctuation sloppy, e.g.

    "Improve the appearance of your place more professionally for competitive price.Design a cleaning program for your requirements and budgets.Further information orfree Quote, call now 1800 722"

    ..a native speaker would say "office" or "shop" instead of  "place" and would put "a" before competitive price. The phone number is incomplete and there's no space before "free".  All these little things betray the fact that he's not a big operator.

    What's more, there are three different 1800 numbers given, and there's nothing to indicate WHERE his business is - except a fax number which suggests he's in Melbourne.  His location is important to customers so why doesn't he give it?

    To get traffic, you need to get as much exposure as possible.

    For most people, that means you need to BUY advertising. There are really a lot of good advertising sources out there, where you can post banners and text ad links to your site. Most are not very expensive.

    I'm using one or two with particular success. And the added bonus is that one of them actually makes me money, in addition to providing site visitors.

    Find one of those, and you can both get the advertising and visitors you need, plus build yourself a nice residual income.

    I like win-win situations... smile

    Here’s some news that should cheer up lots of folks. (Real Deal)

    I’ve been doing text string searches on Google for some of my articles to see whose been stealing them. (The stealing story is another story and does not relate here.)

    What does relate here is what I found.

    It turns out that there are lots and lots and lots of websites that do nothing else but search out good articles on a given subject. They then post links to those articles back to your hub. In other words, they’re busily creating links for you that Google busily lists and counts. A good quality article really works. It actually breeds links on its own without the writer having to do anything.
