How To Get More Website Traffic
Website traffic, how to get more?
Ask any website owner, webmaster or SEO analyst what they want more than anything else in the world – they will probably answer “More Leads or Customers”.
In essence, the only way to do this is by getting more traffic, unique visitors and live humans to your website, product, idea, brand or niche.
Pretty simple in theory, right? Of course it is.
Website Traffic Ideas
I think this goes without saying but a sure-fire way to get more traffic, is to advertise. Advertise on Google PPC, Bing PPC, Yahoo Gemini, Advertising Networks, Billboards, Signs, Radios, Business Cards, Cars and just about anywhere else you can think of.
While this strategy can get pretty pricey, it’s the quickest way to turn over leads for your product, brand or niche.
#2. Become a Social Butterfly
Creating great content is one of the many ways to assure that visitors return to your site. However, this is not a Field of Dreams and Kevin Costner is not waiting around the corner with his bat, ready to knock the ball out of the park. Just because you built it, does not mean they will come.
Leverage social media networks to build followings, make recommendations, talk to people and take advantage of genuine networking opportunities.
Pro Tip – If you’re a B2C niche, we recommend Pintrest or Instagram above all else.
#3. Split Test It
Regardless of what many SEO analysts will have you believe, there is no magical recipe for marketing success.
When creating landing pages, advertisements, marketing material or on and off-site content, split test it all! Hypothesize, implement and analyze.
PromoAffiliates has written a great article about split testing that you can find here.
#4. Headlines for The Win
Headlines in themselves can get you great website traffic. In fact, the writers at Forbes, BuzzFeed and Upworthy brainstorm over 20 headlines per article and pick the one they feel will generate the most buzz.
If your headline does not appeal to people – it doesn’t matter how great the content is.
#5. Long Tail Keywords Are In, Short Tails Are Out
Think SEO is a dying breed? Think again. It is true that short tail keyphrases like “Electronics” or “Games” are over saturated, long tail keyphrases are still viable and can generate tons of unique traffic. Make use of them!
Pro Tip – For analytics about keyphrases head over to Google’s keyword planner located inside of Google Adwords.
#6. Internal Link Structure
While internal on-site link structure wont directly give you more traffic, people who end up browsing your site may end up on pages they wish to share with others. Not only that but Google awards points for how well your internal link structure is on your website.
Pro Tip – Link at least two to three other articles on your website into each blog or article post.
#7. Email Marketing
So many businesses are focused on new acquisitions that they forget the old ones. Don’t forget that your previous customers could be repeat or recommend out if they see something in an email that they want to share with others.

#8. Speed of Light
Remember, your site load time should be under three seconds to avoid customers, clients or potential bounces from your pages.
#9. On Page SEO
SEO is the practice of optimizing pages on your website to rank in major search engines like Google. There is a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it. When writing content for your website make sure that you are familiar with how to get the content to rank – otherwise who are you writing it for?
If you decide to hire a company to write content for you or to generate backlinks make sure that they are using white hat SEO tactics. For more information about backlinking and content generation please read the article here.
The fact of the matter is this; it doesn’t matter what worked last time for your other project, website or blog. Using the same tactics this time may or may not yield the same traffic results.
It is important to make sure you are finding new ways to drive traffic to your website on a daily basis. Success doesn’t happen overnight and it isn’t found by doing something when you feel like it. Consistency, diversification and routine help your projects and ideas, no matter what you are doing.
