Low Cost Ways for Traffic to Your Website

By provi-ets

Website traffic is not something that is easy to get. In today's busy Internet marketplace, nearly everyone who has an Internet connection, computer, and some sense on how to work the keyboard and the mouse can make a website. Nearly everyone who has a website, some monetary and moneymaking sense, and web design savvy can earn from a website.

This can make traffic gathering an extremely difficult enterprise, which has made some people resort to high-cost marketing techniques; on the other hand, some marketers have resorted to sleazy techniques that are more annoying than fruitful.

Having traffic is one thing, but keeping it coming is another. This means that your job as a marketer is two-fold: you need to get people to notice your site, and you need to get them to keep on coming back as well. Believe it or not, there are ways to do this that do not entail you having to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars in order to be successful. You only need to know your market well enough, and know how to please people constantly without over-indulging them.

First, you need to know what your market is like. You should have a marketing scheme ready by this time. What is your target markets average age? Does your target market have any other interests? Is your target market most likely Internet savvy? This can help you look for your target market through social networks online.

Thanks to the paradigm of Web 2.0, more people are online and are aware of the Internets ability to connect people. You can exploit this by joining social networks and posting your URL, then looking for friends amongst people who have common interests.

Another more precise way of getting into Web 2.0 is through harnessing the power of forums and online groups. Join such places and simply post your URL, but do not advertise your site explicitly or sell any products and services just yet. Instead, help people out with their problems, offer advice, and present your opinions.

As your reputation builds up, start being more up front about your website: when people ask questions, direct them to a place in your URL, or say that you offer more things online. A forum or an online group is a great way to get more people to notice you, and to spread the word about your websites, products, and services.

Supplement your potential income by enrolling in an affiliate program, and by posting advertisements on your site. You can get commissions through clicks on these advertisements, thanks to programs such as Widget Bucks or Google AdSense. Although the money will trickle in, you can at least have some residual income to add to your profits.

Make sure that the ads that you post are relevant not only to your site content, but to the needs of your target market. When people see that your site is not only useful, but is giving them useful links, then you will be able to get more traffic to your site.

These are only a few tips on how you can get more traffic to your site of the Internet universe, and without spending too much. Sometimes, without spending anything at all! As long as you know how to market your site, products, and services, and as long as you know the behavior of your target market without appearing like a creep or a stalker, you will be able to get traffic to your website and have it rise in the ranks of the online elite.

Reciprocal Link

How to Drive Traffic Through Reciprocal Link Building

by provi-ets

In the SEO business, reciprocal link building gives good rankings if the sites are relevant or related to both topic/subject of both sites. It is an effective way to drive traffic to your site and you will also gain higher rankings with other related websites as long as you have an updated site with great content and significant information.

Link exchange will result if you have set a topnotch site with interesting content and other related information, this will in turn help others who want to exchange links with you for an added internet exposure.

Few notes on Reciprocal Link Building

* Make sure that you are linked to relevant sites meaning you both have the same subject matter and at the same time all the links are also related to each other.

* It's more about quality than quantity. In reciprocal link building, be on the look out for quality sites, linking to more and more sites not really related to your site is not advisable.

* This is a long and sometimes frustrating process because you still have to check if the sites have agreed on link exchange and regularly track down if the link to your site is still present on the other's website.
another link. If that's the case, take their link off your site also as this can give them good search engine rankings as one way linking and your website may lose.

* Examine the other site link pages, are they indexed and visited by google? If the site has no follow through or are hidden from those called robots, this will do you no good, it can even damage your ranking.

* When requesting for a link exchange, consider the links that are displayed/linked to the other's site, all the links should be relevant to your website. Also, the site should not have many broken links from other sites.

*Keep the number of links on that page at a minimum amount, if the page has 40 or more links then don't waste your time there anymore.

* You can decide however if you want to have a separate link page, this will depend on the size of the site and what your topic is all about.

Be extra careful in the reciprocal link building process, make sure that all the links are relevant and all the links contained in other's website are also related. Bear in mind also that not all webmasters are willing to exchange links, some webmasters do not allow link exchange or if they allow it, double check if your link exists on their link pages. Sometimes, webmasters do a naughty trick of hiding links after they've agreed on a link exchange.

Follow the link exchange rules. The site that you are exchanging links with should exist in major search engines and has good traffic ranking (Alexa is an effective site to keep track on rankings and traffic). Check regularly, let's say every month if your link is still in the site, some webmasters also have this practice of removing other links in their sites.

Reciprocal linking is a good and free way of achieving high website ranking but you should still monitor once in a while, after the link exchange don't stop there continue to check the status of your links and site rankings.
