|You have just uploaded your
web-site and it looks great!|
You feel good about it and
you're ready to make some money!
There's only one problem,
you need some Customers, or Traffic!
There are a few ways
to do this, that are free, but will take some time and work.
First you will need to set-up some link pages on you
web-site. Then you will need to exchange links with other
web-sites that are related to yours. For example, if you have
a home business you can visit Google and type in "home
business". Google will then give you a few million related
sites that you can start with. You will then visit these sites
exchanging links. Most sites will have a "link to us" or "Add
URL" page. You will click that link and follow the
instructions to submit a link back to your web-site. It is
good to start with at least a hundred links or more, (no more
than 50 links a page). Exchange links with the first and
second pages only, then you will want to type in maybe, "work
from home", "best business ideas", "home careers", "computer
jobs", etc. Repeat this procedure until you have enough. Sites
on the first two pages of the Google search will have the most
traffic, which will increase yours.
The next thing you
will want to do is write an article. Writing articles is a
great way to market your web-site and increase your traffic.
Write a simple article relating to your web-site topic, if you
need some help, visit Google and type in the subject your
looking for. At the end of your article you will create an
author bio or resource box. In it include a brief description
of you and your web-site and your web-site URL.This allows
everyone who reads your article to learn more about you and
your business. Now you will start submitting your article to
many article directories by visiting Google and search for
"article directories". By doing this your article will be
posted all over the world for people to read, thus creating
more traffic for your site.
Last, you can create your
own newsletter. This is more of a long-term strategy, but one
that you should start early so that you can get the effects as
soon as possible. Everyone that signs-up, 20% may return to
your site from the links in your newsletter. This will build
over a period of time and add lots of free traffic. A valid
newsletter may consist of a single article about the subject
of your site, followed by information telling them how to
unsubscribe or subscribe. If you don't have time to write your
own article, there are many on the Internet with permission to
reprint included, just remember to include the author's bio or
resource box at the end. To find these articles, go to Google
?????? articles reprint.
Just fill in the
?????? with your website topic.
Now you will start
submitting your newsletter (ezine) to many ezine directories
by visiting Google and search for "ezine directories". This
will help you establish links to your ezine and create more
subscribers for your newsletter, thus creating another source
of free traffic.
Using these highly effective ways to
increase traffic to your web-site will help you market your
business and reach a larger consumer base.
