3 Easy Ways To Generate Website Traffic

There are literally hundreds of ways that you can generate website traffic. They all work, but what you need to keep in mind is that they may not work immediately, so start with one, master it, and then move on to the next. As you do this, you will find the ones that you like better, or the ones that work better for your business and website, or both.

Here are just three popular ways to generate website traffic.

1. YouTube. YouTube.com is one of the most visited sites in the world (with over 73 million visits per day) and its visitor numbers continue to climb. If you want to be where the people, and your potential leads or customers, are, sign up for an account on YouTube, post a video, and put your link in the description of the video. YouTube also allows you to put your website on the video itself, but it is not a do-follow link so it is just there for visual purposes. As with all of your marketing efforts, you need to do some keyword research before preparing your video. Pick a keyword that you want to use, use it in the title of your video, in the tags of your video, and in the description of your video. The video must be under ten minutes long but you can do a very effective video for under a minute, which is another great advantage to using YouTube to generate traffic to your site. It doesn’t take much time, and it’s absolutely free. If you further want to leverage your video, you can submit it to one of the video submission sites which then sends it out to other popular video sites.

2. PPC. Most people think of Google Adwords when they hear the term pay-per-click advertising. Google is the best place to start because it is inexpensive to register (only $5.00) and it currently gets the most traffic. Again, you need to pick your keywords carefully. If you have a low budget, start out with the most uncompetitive keywords, use them in the first lines of your ads and even choose for your ad to show only when someone searches exactly that keyword. This will get you fewer clicks, but they will be more targeted. Once you start gaining ground, you can start to target more competitive keywords as well. You can also try the other PPC platforms like Yahoo and Bing. They have less visitors but the bids are also less expensive.

3. WordPress. You can really use any blogging platform to get traffic to your website but WordPress is very good from an SEO point of view, meaning you can get some incredibly effective, and free, plug-ins that will help you raise the ranking of your website. Include the link to your website in your posts and when you comment on other blogs to generate website traffic.


Your Own Online Business Opportunity


How can you go about choosing the right opportunity for yourself.
Whether technology like computers is your forte or not, it is a
means to make money if you have some skills to offer in specific
areas. Some people are great at marketing, or at building web
sites, so they sell online design and SEO services. Others are
handymen, great with a toolkit and can build houses, perform
expert carpentry tasks and so could setup an online business that
sells their own style of furniture or offer an interior design service.

There are two paths towards an online business opportunity.

– A home based job, or a home based business.

If you wish to work from home, in your own business, you will need
to establish your skill strengths. No need to know how to create a
web site as there are plenty of hosts such as GVO that will
provide tools that can enable you to set up a site in minutes. All
you need to do is draft a business plan, whom will you sell to, how
will your reach them and what’s the competition? Do you have an
edge on the market? Can you offer something that is missing with
your competitors?

So these are the first steps towards your own online business
opportunity:

– Since you will be operating from your computer, are you
updated with the use of word processors, spreadsheets and
email? I suspect you are already, though if not, and you don’t have
Microsoft Office then download the openoffice.org set of tools. It’s
also a professional choice.

– This is a home based computer opportunity and not just an
office based business, you will be operating from your PC or Mac.
Ensure it is reliable, been checked for spyware, and has an anti-
virus program running. Don’t struggle with an old pc that is
problematic, invest in a new one you are investing in your
business.

– It is a common question in blogs what is the most successful
business idea? The business of working online is a changing one
and it is best to focus on long-term plans rather than making a fast
buck. A home business computer opportunity has a great chance of success due to its low start-up costs.

There are plenty of home-based jobs available particularly in the
freelance sector. If you have specific skills, this is a great place to
find work. Sites that can help you move along are craigslist,
freelancers.com, freelanceswitch.com and flexjobs.com. It may be
a good start if you need capital and more flexible time to seek out
work while your business is building.

Be prepared to diversify right away if you don’t have a specialized
skill. One of the most popular choices initially is freelance writing.
Many use their writing skills to increase their business exposure
writing press releases, and articles containing sales copy to
promote their products or services.

Common online based businesses include affiliate marketing
programs, freelance writing services, design and programming,
franchisee options selling products and being a reseller.

Choose one that suits your long-term interests carefully, this is a
life changing decision and needs careful thought. Do this and you
will reap the rewards. http://www.ibourl.com/267e
