Lazy Ways for More Website Traffic

Updated on June 9, 2010

If you have a have a website, chances are, you are going to be looking into getting more website traffic to sell your products.  If you have more than one site, you will be trying to get more website traffic to all of them.  I will list some ways to get more website traffic that will hopefully give you some insight into what you should be looking at doing.

If you add your own affiliate program, this can help you to add links going back to your website and to maybe a blog that you may have and so on.  This is a marketing practice that rewards a business or person for each customer or visitor that comes to their website.  This plays an important part in marketing strategies.  

Offering a free service or program always attracts people to come take a look, which will lead to more traffic and possibly more sales, which is, of course, the ultimate goal.  Paying for traffic is another option to get you more website traffic.  You bid on certain words and then when those words are looked up under the search engine of your desire, your website will come up.

Think of what words you would like to use, make a list and pick the ones that will pertain to the type of traffic that you are trying to target. Make sure you've researched which words your competition is using.  There are also the top search engines to consider when thinking about paying for traffic, which ones are the most popular?  They are a small investment but could drive a lot of traffic to your site.Write articles to attract more website traffic to your site.  These articles should be worth reading and pertain to your product or services that you are offering.

Writing articles in your area of knowledge is an idea, that is, if you are  going to be doing this yourself.  If you write enough articles with links to your website, even your blog,after a time they will begin to add up.  If they are any good they will be published on various websites, that will all be linking back to your website.  Your article will need to be properly formatted to fit the needs of the publisher.  An good article size will consist of 500-750 words, just a short informative piece, not a novel.  Use an interesting and descriptive title to attract people to click and read.  Make sure that these articles can be distributed to get the most views.    

Networking with social sites and fellow website merchants will give you connections and even traffic exchanging can take place.  Look at where your traffic is coming from and try to market to what makes the most sense for you. Submitting to internet directories will also assist you in getting more website traffic.  Being persistent in your pursuit can only pay off in the end.
