The problem with site promotion
Chances are, if you have your own website a key reason for it is to make money. However, to make money you're going to have to bring people into your website. The problem is, so many bossiness' and niches are over saturated. Thankfully though, there's a great way out with of Facebook and Twitter for you to get a high ranking backlink (ideally on page one of Google) that will advertise your site.
So, how exactly can you boost your site traffic? It's simple, sign up for HubPages and make a hub of your website. The great thing about HubPages is that it's a PR10 site, so when anyone puts up a Hub, 9/10, when the relevant keywords are searched for in Google, you'll find your Hub on the first page of Google.
One thing you need to remember when doing all of this though is to actually include a link (preferably twice) to your website into the Hub. If you don't do this, this'll reduce potential visitors to your site since they won't want to search for it.
Lets look at some quick examples of this:
If you put in 'MyLikes Scam', 'Boycott the SNP' '720p video windows live movie maker' and 'Scoobys Workshop Review' into Google, you'll see that they're all on page one! The reason for this is that I've carefully selected the title of my Hub to reflect the most probable keyword search that people will perform.
Now, you might be thinking that your website does have a good keyword in it. Let's say for example that you sell t-shirts and your website name is xzy. What you could name your Hub is 'High quality t-shirts: WEBSITE NAME HERE'. That way you're still including a strong keyword in the title, but it's also alerting people to your wesbite name.
A crucial aspect however is to include a summary for your Hub, since this is what they'll see in the Google search results. Make it something interesting so that they'll be drawn in to clicking on it. Also, make sure you put in other keywords when creating the Hub. Using the t-shirt example again, you could use cotton shirt, cotton t-shirt etc to make sure that it increases your visibility to Google. Just don't over do it with the keywords in both the keyword section and also in the Hub itself.
By taking around 30 minutes to make a Hub about your website, you'll help your site in the long run, plus you'll make some money from HubPages, too!
